  Editorial: Itching for another warPDF files may take a moment to load

The war drums are beating over Iran. In recent months, Western leaders’ rhetoric concerning the Gulf nation has become increasingly hard line, with Israel and the United States hyping Iran as a growing threat to regional peace and security. A new war seems to be brewing in the Middle East, and with our current Conservative government, Canada will likely become involved. Before we allow ourselves to be dragged into another war, we must first look at the facts and determine whether peace is still possible.

  Surviving midterm seasonPDF files may take a moment to load

The first month of university has come and gone, and the schoolwork and late nights are starting to catch up to those who live by the “YOLO” mantra. If transitioning from summer to fall is like waking up on a cold, dreary Monday, transitioning from September to midterm season is like getting your nose punched into your brain while being electrocuted. October is when dreams of rainbows, stars and a 4.0 grow faint, when cheerful laughter turns into pitiful sobs and healthy food gets passed over for a DQ Blizzard.

  Cross-country filmmakingPDF files may take a moment to load

There are many places other than Toronto and Hollywood for a newly graduated Canadian film student to succeed. Many countries around the world have booming film industries, including China, Egypt and India, which is the world’s largest producer of films.

  Nickle Galleries finds new homePDF files may take a moment to load

After two years of construction and relocation, the Nickle Galleries reopened in the Taylor Family Digital 
Library on October 5. The Nickle Galleries — formerly the Nickle Arts Museum — offers members of the University of Calgary a chance to see a wide range of contemporary and historical artifacts.


In 1970, philanthropist Samuel Nickle donated $1 million to the 
U of C to create an art gallery. At the time, the donation was the largest the 
U of C had ever received. In January 1979, the Nickle Arts Museum was built.
