  Got tests?PDF files may take a moment to load

Studying from old exams is not cheating; in fact, you can get your hands on old exams at student clubs and the Students' Union Copy Centre.

"Basically we have two ways of doing it," said Brian Westcott, President of the Biology Student Association. "If you are a member and just want to borrow an exam, you can do it for free; otherwise, we usually have exam packages for the more popular courses like BIOL311, with three or four exams included. These are sold at cost to members, for about $2 each."

  Russian Buddhism explainedPDF files may take a moment to load

Vodka, Lenin, Moscow. When you think about Russia, these terms often come to mind. But what about Buddhism? Not a concept often associated with Russian history or lifestyle. According to Dr. Baatr Kitinov of Moscow State University, however, Tibetan Buddhism in Russia is not only an integral part of Russian religious history, but it is a force that is experiencing a substantial comeback in today's Russian society.

  ConVersion: Where geeks go to get laidPDF files may take a moment to load

I went to ConVersion XIX looking for something I could understand, like what I saw in Trekkers. Somehow, I thought being able to recite most of Babylon 5 and the good Treks from memory would be sufficient to carry me through three days. It didn't. By the end of the weekend, I had only begun to understand what true science fiction and fantasy fandom was about.

"This is one tough way to take a tour of Morocco," said Angus Cowan.

Cowan just completed the Marathon des Sables, a race affectionately known as the world's toughest foot race. It's 230km long, takes seven days and follows the Algerian border through the Sahara desert.

"The desert looks peaceful and serene but you have the wind howling and the sand pelting you," reminisced Cowan at a public presentation hosted by the University of Calgary Fitness and Lifestyle Centre on Sept. 16. "It attacks every sense."

  So far so goodPDF files may take a moment to load

Ask the Dinos women's soccer team why it took almost two games to adjust to the 4-3-3 allignment. Ask Mother Russia why corruption is still rampant after the switch away from communism in favour of the free market. In both cases, the answers are hard to come by, and men in track suits hover inconspicuously, some with cleats and some with pistols under their belts.

  Editor, the Gauntlet:PDF files may take a moment to load

This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Doesn't our Students' Union fight for lower tuition for everybody? Didn't I see a few members of them on the news last night pleading for donations to the foodbank?

I consider part of my tuition the Students' Union Fee, and I see little being done. I am sure this money could either be left in our pockets or given to the [su] food bank rather than used to pay for a houseboating trip.

  Editor, the GauntletPDF files may take a moment to load

I was absolutely appalled upon reading such outright garbage about development in the Third World. As much as Mr. Farrell would like to have us believe that Jean Chrétien is doing too much for the Third World and that economic development will magically occur without aid for health or education in developing nations, I beg to differ.
