It takes more and more than just your regular five o'clock news to shock people. So what's the story? Is it news or entertainment? How much substance is there to what you watch on television? Are you being informed or entertained?

  As the United States prepares to go to war, thy show us who the real terrorists arePDF files may take a moment to load

There is a difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter, or a guerrilla. A terrorist deliberately targets civilians; a guerrilla attacks the military and government apparatus of its perceived oppressor. Yasser Arafat, regardless of his Nobel Peace Prize, is a terrorist because of his long history of attacking civilians. These attacks have included the assassinations of the entire 1972 Israeli Olympic team and numerous airline hijackings.

  The bar was set a little too highPDF files may take a moment to load

A chance for cross-country glory went up in a blaze of stress fractures last weekend when the Dinos men's team finished sixth at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport championships.

"We had some good performances and some not-so-good performances," lamented Coach Doug Lamont. "It was not what we expected."

The Dinos were ranked fourth in the country going into the meet, and had a chance to finish in the medals, but had to settle for sixth.

  Session with MartinezPDF files may take a moment to load

Josh Martinez is one of the most charismatic abstract hip-hop acts, always leaving listeners stunned with his sublime cloud of words. His music, characterized by sharp intelligence, clever rhymes, and unpredictable improvisations, is slowly heading in the opposite direction of hip-hop norm. The Halifax native wants to represent Canadian hip-hop, hoping to spread his personal message to the open-minded. Many consider him the new-school poet-emcee, but he discards that title for something more down-to-earth.

"The vanity of others offends our taste only when it offends our vanity"

– Friedrich Nietzsche

When we first set out to gain an understanding of the world of Fetish culture, I expected that the greatest barrier I would find was my own personal bias on the subject. Surprisingly enough, after giving the subject a fair and honest chance, I soon found that it was not my own bias and mores that were getting in the way, but those of the people around me.

  Continuing the downward slidePDF files may take a moment to load

Another year over and another step down.

Such is the case for the University of Calgary who, with the release of Maclean's annual survey of Canadian universities, doesn't seem to be improving in the eyes of the rest of Canada. In fact, U of C's placing in the rankings actually fell to 14th in the Medical/Doctoral category, from 12th last year. While many people on campus, most recently U of C Vice-President External

  Maclean's ranks U of C 14thPDF files may take a moment to load

Students and faculty at University of Calgary can claim that we are not last in Maclean's most recent Canadian university rankings.

Placing 14th out of 15 in the medical/doctoral category just ahead of Manitoba, the U of C dropped from the 12th place position it has held for three years.

In an e-mail addressed to all students sent on Wed., Nov. 13, U of C President Harvey Weingarten addressed the rankings which will appear in the Nov. 18 issue of Maclean's.

[Ed. Note: The following letter was sent to all University of Calgary students to the e-mail addresses listed at the Registrar's Office. As some students did not receive the letter, the Gauntlet has reprinted it without revision.]

Students,

Many of you have seen or heard media reports this week about the University of Calgary's placing in the latest Maclean's ranking of Canadian universities. Please allow me to share my thoughts on this issue.

  The propaganda of KyotoPDF files may take a moment to load

In my grade ten social studies class, we watched Allied propaganda from the Second World War. As the guerrilla-like Nazis rampaged through big Western cities, the entire class laughed, and appropriately so. The outrageousness of this image was viewed for what it was, and the government's attempt to scare young men into enlisting was obvious.

  Hockey women set for cross-town battlePDF files may take a moment to load

For the first time ever in ACAC competition, the U of C's women's hockey team will visit the Mount Royal College Cougars Fri., Nov. 15.

Since this is the birth of a new Calgary rivalry, manufactured hatred will be required.

So on that note... Melissa Welton, MRC's leading scorer allegedly said that Dinos' netminder Tonya Young is "soft."

MRC's goalie, Trina Radcliffe, added that the Dinos have "no scoring touch to speak of."

How will the Dinos respond? Game time is 8:45 p.m. at MRC.
