  Killing a human is sometimes justPDF files may take a moment to load

Imagine a dog born with a serious disability. The dog, unable to walk or feed itself, is in constant pain according to its veterinarian. Because it often has seizures, the dog must take medication to stop them, but the medication prevents it from taking pain medication. In such a case, most people will think it reasonable to have the dog put down -- its quality of life is sufficiently poor and were it able to, it would likely request euthanasia.

  The SU is SUcking us dryPDF files may take a moment to load

An article in last week's Maclean's magazine decried the decline of Canada's parliamentary system. In the story, a sorry scene of a nearly empty parliament with clusters of MPs working on other projects are occasionally and briefly interrupted when the others show up for question period -- also when the cameras appear. These few dedicated MPs are reminiscent of our own Students' Union. Every day, five executives and dozens more elected officials work to improve student life, and yet rarely anyone knows who they are.

For some bands, a gig like the iTunes Session is just a throwaway — a chance to play some stripped down acoustic versions of a few popular jams, do a cover or two and call it a wrap.

  Spun: Steve DawsonPDF files may take a moment to load

The first track of Nightshade sets up the sound for the rest of the album. Electric guitar and organ give this album a much fuller feel than previous efforts, but the sound is recognizably Dawson: folk-blues with great guitar and his unmistakable baritone voice. He expands and develops the formula that worked so well for his 2008 releases, Telescope and Waiting for the Lights to Come Up.

  Spun: RaidoheadPDF files may take a moment to load

There is an obvious temptation to compare any new Radiohead albums to previous releases, yet every time they find a new creative direction. The King of Limbs is unlike any of their past releases, yet feels naturally Radiohead. From the opening notes of "Bloom" to the Pac-man like artwork, this album will send chills running down your spine.

You know the end of a feel-good high school movie where the class nerd finally dates the head cheerleader? If you were to substitute his awkward skin condition for a guitar and her pom-poms for a set of drum sticks, you would wonder why Bell Tower wasn't playing in the background.

To all skiers and snowboarders, the allure of a slope blanketed in fresh powder cannot be denied, sometimes even when those first tracks and blissful turns lay just beyond the ski area boundaries. At the popular Banff ski area Sunshine Village, a number of veteran patrollers were abruptly dismissed soon after they caught the owner's son ducking into a closed-off area in December.
