  Letter: sexual maturity PDF files may take a moment to load

I believe that all the issues raised by Remi Watts in “No Place to Study... One Another” [Oct. 27, 2011] are part of student life and should be treated as natural obstacles meant to be surmounted even if just for character-building. While I would not discount any of the positive aspects of healthy sexual expression cited in the article, I would however point out the potential disservice such sexual space would do to students who still have a lot of maturation to do — be it sexual or otherwise.

  Stör set to expandPDF files may take a moment to load

The University of Calgary's local grocery mart, Stör, will soon see an expansion. After renovations, Stör is set to gain about 50 per cent more floor space, leaving room for healthier food options.

The decision to expand Stör resulted from the SU receiving student feedback indicating strong demand for a more diverse line-up of healthy food items.

  Editorial: Eaton upset my beaverPDF files may take a moment to load

Senator Nicole Eaton wants Canada to dethrone our national symbol-- the proud and noble beaver, replacing it with the polar bear.

Beavers paved the way for the colonial foundations of Canada. We hunted them down and hacked them up to near extinction so that vain Europeans could wear them on their heads. In honour of their once fashionable skins, we decided to award beavers the great honour of being our national emblem.

  The GAP's vetoPDF files may take a moment to load

As the current head-honcho of the Free Thinkers club, I'm strongly committed to the idea of rational and open debate. I think we can only approach the truth through the free discussion of issues -- without censoring or invoking blasphemy.

Which is why I'm opposed to the Genocide Awareness Project's signs.

  NB-LamePDF files may take a moment to load

The nba lockout is ridiculous. National Basketball Association owners and players have been negotiating for a new collective bargaining agreement which dictates the rules of player contracts, trades, revenue distribution, the nba draft, the salary cap, etc. (well before the old cba expired June 30 of this year).

  Occupy: the liberal Tea Party?PDF files may take a moment to load

The Occupy movement has been going on for some time now -- to the point where the media have largely moved on. This means it's time for sobre reflection.

  Letter: study spacePDF files may take a moment to load

In response to the Gauntlet's editorial about the closure of MacKimmie Library and students' concerns about lack of quiet study space in the Taylor Family Digital Library [Oct. 27, 2011], I would like to provide some updated information on how the University of Calgary is responding to this matter.

  Plucking hockey's young talentPDF files may take a moment to load

On Feb. 7, 2003, Jared Aulin was tackled by his linemates after scoring his second goal of the game against the Carolina Hurricanes on a power-play. Over 18,000 present at the sold-out Staples Centre where the Kings beat the Hurricanes 8-2 and saw Jared Aulin score his first two NHL goals. Rewind to June 24, 2000. Aulin is drafted to the Colorado Avalanche and attends a training camp that reads like a team created in a video game with names like Patrick Roy, Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg, Ray Bourque, Chris Drury and Adam Foote.

  SU initiative gets execs out of the officePDF files may take a moment to load

Last year, the Students' Union rolled out a re-branding campaign to create uniformity when representing their various services. This involved better incorporation of design elements such as colour schemes and minimizing logo diversity. While these awareness efforts have carried over into this year, SU president Dylan Jones said that the focus is no longer on "re-branding," but geared toward creating a stronger SU presence on campus.

  Research profile: strengths of ADHD kidsPDF files may take a moment to load

University of Calgary researchers are investigating positive factors attributed to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

"Children with this syndrome are sometimes seen as the more problematic kid at school or sometimes are more difficult, which makes them often misunderstood," said Emma Climie, a researcher with the study.

Children with ADHD are often stereotyped by teachers and peers. The team's goal is to reduce this stigma.
