  Healthy studentsPDF files may take a moment to load

Students start each semester motivated to exercise and stay healthy. However, as workloads intensify, maintaining this mind set may be difficult. Late nights studying in the library can result in countless trips to the vending machine and less time to keep fit.

Common excuses include not having the time or motivation to exercise, but the road to good health can start with changing what you eat.

  Den to instate cover chargePDF files may take a moment to load

For the first time, it's not the students that have to pay, as the Den introduces a new $2.00 cover charge for non-students on Thursday and Friday nights.

"The cover charge will serve a two-fold purpose," said Students' Union Vice-President Operations and Finance Robbie White. "First, it will be a small source of revenue. Second, the Den is a student bar, and so students should benefit from [the charge]."

  Mark Kleiner Power Trio, Love To NightPDF files may take a moment to load

Sometimes, things aren't as simple as they seem. Love To Night, the Mark Kleiner Power Trio's freshman effort, is, and that actually isn't a bad thing. After all, this is an album where a quarter of the song titles (and the album title itself) have "love" in them. This is an album about the upside of love, the simple purity of happiness, not the complexities of rejection and loss. It's about sugary harmonies that would do the Monkees proud, hooks Paul McCartney could have written in his prime and would kill for today.

  The Stories behind 9-11: Longitudes and Attitudes: Exploring the World After September 11 PDF files may take a moment to load

Understanding the world before and after September 11 is no easy task. Writers and pundits have struggled to explain the attacks and critique the response; however, few succeed as well as The New York Times' Thomas L. Friedman. As a foreign affairs columnist, the three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author--including this year's prize for Commentary--has naturally written many pieces about last September.

This Horizon and Beyond doesn't disappoint as a compendium of great poetry. Canadian author and lawyer Nancy-Gay Rostein offers a thoughtful yet critical view of the world with her particular blend of free and metered verse poetry about topics from her own experiences. Familiar settings and the relative shortness of the poems let casual readers simply enjoy the works in bite-sized pieces while poetry buffs will find oblique but wonderful literary gems waiting to be discovered in the passages fortified with meaning.
