  John Wort Hannam and the Sound Merchants Pocket Full of Holes PDF files may take a moment to load

The surprise about Pocket Full of Holes is that it doesn't fall for the trap that capture most folk bands--the music actually has some variance. On their debut album, John Wort Hannam and the Sound Merchants produce a handful of honest, sentimental songs with a wide range of emotions, themes and sounds that are a pleasure to listen to. This CD is an imaginative romp of old-style storytelling that spans from the Channel Islands to the Canadian West.

  Early English VoicescapesPDF files may take a moment to load

Early English anthems, madrigals and part-songs may be rare in Calgary but it is that infrequency that drives the artists of VoiceScapes to sing the music again today.

"This concert is based on music from old England, music which would have been sung in courts of the sixteenth and seventeenth century," says Julie Harris. "After dinner, some people would take out musical instruments and play. It was expected that well-educated people could sing and read music."

If I die tomorrow, I will die a happy man. For 1/32 of my day I had the opportunity to ogle and interview one of the hottest women in the world: Playboy's Playmate of the Year for 2000, Jodi Paterson. In the future my kids will ask, "is mommy the most beautiful girl you have ever met?" I'll have no choice but to say, "no child, she is not."

  Does anti-Israeli mean anti-Semite?PDF files may take a moment to load

R ecently, I have noticed an alarming trend whereby the Israeli government and its supporters, especially certain segments of the North American media, label anyone who speaks out against it as an "anti-Semite." It seems the Israeli government and its media allies are under the impression that Israel, and Israel alone, is immune from criticism.

  Wrinkles in the systemPDF files may take a moment to load

I am short at least one textbook as I finish my second week of class and I'm not alone. The University of Calgary Bookstore, which has proudly charged students retail prices for already overpriced books since the beginning of time, has let students down once again.

  Crime statisticsPDF files may take a moment to load

Campus Security received media interest in August after an Ontario University Association statement that some universities are not completely honest about reporting all crimes. The University of Calgary voluntarily reports all crimes accurately on their website. This led to the participation of Campus Security in A-Channel News interviews, as well as a radio interview from Windsor, Ont.

  Got crime?PDF files may take a moment to load

Starting this fall, Campus Security is running a student volunteer program in conjunction with Calgary's Crime Stoppers unit. Campus Security officer Scott Donselaar came up with the idea for the campus program in May 2001. He approached University of Calgary's Campus Security Manager Lanny Fritz, Crime Stoppers and Calgary Police Services Stolen Property Unit Detective Colin Adair.

Fritz believes this program will create an awareness of Crime Stoppers on campus, leading to a reduction in crime on campus.
