What does your job entail?

  Operation MakeoutPDF files may take a moment to load

Call me sexist if you want, but I never could stand girl-rock. Women can make some beautiful music, there's no questioning that, but with the exception of Janis Joplin, very few girls can actually just "rock out." All the famous poster-girls for female rock have either gone pop (No Doubt, Amanda Marshall), become utterly self-absorbed (Alanis Morissette) or just collapsed under the bulk of their egos (Courtney Love). Leave it to one of the best-named bands in showbiz to prove me wrong.

  Re-reading the Jedi HandbookPDF files may take a moment to load

When I was younger, a friend of mine had the greatest toy. It was a fully functional Millennium Falcon--the doors opened, the guns aimed around, and to top it off, the lights flashed and the engine sounded. Going over to his house just down the block was the best thing I could possibly think of.

  Potential squanderedPDF files may take a moment to load

There's a fine line between a good movie and a great one, and sadly, City by the Sea never manages to cross it. Had it included some sense of theme and purpose, it could have been one of those few films with something to say.

  Evil people do not shavePDF files may take a moment to load

Have you ever noticed how the Devil is always portrayed in movies with a goatee? Or better yet, how every time a character meets his evil twin, he always has some form of facial hair? When one sits back and contemplates exactly what kind of people have traditionally sprouted such displays of fur, the inevitable conclusion arises that whiskers induce some form of deep-seated evil in all those who grow them.

  India: Faces and PlacesPDF files may take a moment to load

It's always that way. When you hope to impact something, it always impacts you more. And although I know my trip had a big impact on me, I can't exactly figure out what that impact was specifically. Most people tell you that a journey, such as mine, changes a person. But I can recall my mum telling me before I left, "Don't expect to come back a different person or anything."

  U of C 101 fights cystic fibrosisPDF files may take a moment to load

The Students' Union decided to take a slightly different approach to social activities this year. Bling Bling, a game created by Shinerama directors at Wilfred Laurier University last year was adopted and moulded to the U of C 101 program in order to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. The game challenged frosh students and U of C 101 leaders to a strategic and devious game. The nearly 4,000 first year students were divided into eight different groups with almost 500 students per team.

  Global warming necessary for our planet's existencePDF files may take a moment to load

Global warming and climate change, long touted by environmentalists as looming threats to our planet, are in the national news spotlight once again. But before we gorge ourselves on the bonanza of existing and new material on the subject, we should understand the context of the arguments.

  Creating an on-line memoryPDF files may take a moment to load

The Web has no memory--unless it is created.

Some things on-line don't need to be remembered--think porn, pop-up ads and amihotornot.com. Others however, like news and events, should be. While it's doubtful the attacks last September will ever be forgotten, headlines, stories and pictures posted on-line in the hours and days afterwards have disappeared.
