  Women ballers devour competitionPDF files may take a moment to load

Success is like sex-you always crave it and it feels good.

During the climax of this weekend's Panda Hoopfest in Edmonton, the women's basketball team managed to come first with three stimulating wins.

These wins were not easily won nor were they possible without the women's wonderful work. In the first two games, they were comfortably ahead, before blowing their leads and going into overtime.

Re: "SU debates women's centre," Oct. 23, 2003,

Students' Union President Jayna Gilchrist doesn't believe a women's resource centre should be a priority because "it only assists half of the [university] population."

As a member of the other half, I would like to disagree.

Re: "SU debates women's centre," Oct. 23, 2003,

I don't know which to find more appalling: that the University of Calgary does not already have a women's centre, or that Students' Union President Jayna Gilchrist does not feel the security, comfort and empowerment of what she describes as "only half" of the university's population should be a priority.

  The station that raised $170,000PDF files may take a moment to load

Well, the tallies are in and once again the dedicated team at CJSW is amazed by the outpouring of community support for its annual funding drive.

"We're really happy," beamed CJSW Station Manager Chad Saunders. "We're really fortunate that the support is as strong as it is."

This year's drive raked in just under $170,000, surpassing their goal of $160,000 and leaving last year's total of $150,000 in the dust.

  Sex is safe againPDF files may take a moment to load

Students can sleep safely this week, the Students' Union's supply of free condoms has been replenished.

Students looking to get lucky last week with the aid of a free condom from the SU may have noticed an empty fish bowl and a sign asking students to donate money to the Campus Food Bank. Contrary to popular belief, this was not a cruel joke, the SU simply ran out of condoms.

"The fundraiser had nothing to do with the condoms," said SU Vice-President Events Richard Bergen.

What's your favourite donut?

Like Homer, I prefer a sprinkle donut, or "vanilla dip" in Tim Hortons parlance. One friend prefers the gooey goodness of a Boston Cream while another likes a cruller. To each their own, I say.

The best sprinkle donut is from Tim Hortons. I don't know why it's the best, maybe their secret ingredient is love or perhaps MSG. Whatever it is, the best donuts are made by Tim Hortons and are "Always Fresh."

Or are they?
