  From bad to badderestPDF files may take a moment to load

"Not much went right," reflected Dinos men's basketball Assistant Coach Wayne Thomas on last weekend's games against the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.

Indeed, with losses of 88-82 Fri., Jan. 9 and 78-52 Sat., Jan. 10, it would appear that things went from bad to worse on the Dinos' poorest weekend of the season.

"They were ready to go," said the Dinos' Brad Summers, whose six points Saturday were tops on the team. "They have a new gym, and they played well."

It started three years ago when young Eric Moschopedis approached One Yellow Rabbit guru Michael Green with a concept for the High Performance Rodeo.

"Master Green," we assume Eric said. "I have this great idea for your space."

And so, Moschopedis and his team, Bubonic Tourist, found themselves running a Rodeo sideshow of young, emerging artists, showcasing their unique ideas and providing them with a high-caliber venue.

Re: "Student protests no longer effective," Dec. 4, 2003,

Students' Union Vice-President External Lauren Batiuk is right, there is little doubt student protests are an ineffective way of lobbying for funding.

To believe Operation Barricade would influence the Board of Governors decision is outrageous, especially since it was held after the decision to raise tuition was made.

  Have your say on the U-PassPDF files may take a moment to load

Students will vote again on the U-Pass in the upcoming Students' Union General Election.

Students will decide whether or not to continue the program at $60 per term for 2004/05, with $2 increments for two years for a total term of three years.

Calgary Transit Business Analyst David MacDonald thinks the agreement is very comparable to what was negotiated in 2002.

"It's pretty similar to what we've agreed to in the past," said MacDonald.

  Murder most foulPDF files may take a moment to load

Each of Calgary's six murders this year could have been prevented if just one of our city's million people had motivated themselves to look out for a fellow human being.

Three murders, those of Tay Van Dang on Jan. 1, Jeffery Shuckburgh on Jan. 7, and an unidentified 41-year-old Calgary man on Jan. 13 were borne of disputes in front of witnesses who failed to stop the altercations from becoming deadly.

  Savoury TVPDF files may take a moment to load

This year has, generally, been an awful year for American television. Only in a horrible year can shows like Whoopi be considered for renewal. I try to be a television watcher, I want to love TV, but I'm finding it harder and harder. Every time I like a show it gets cancelled, so, I'm going to use my considerable powers as Gauntlet columnist to make sure the shows I enjoy currently don't get cancelled.

Editor, the Gauntlet.

In the midst of the usual swirling controversy and mid-semester bitching about the Students' Union, I'd like to add one friendly reminder: elected officials are full-time students too.

They are freaking out about papers, midterms, assignments and how the hell they are going to pull that all nighter. They have roomates to worry about, bills to pay, part-time jobs to go to and clubs to meet with.

  Looking forwardPDF files may take a moment to load

Another year has gone by, fading into the annals of history. Looking back on the year that was, it was filled with many an up and down, many a cheer and a disappointment. It was a year that was black in its dreariness and brilliant in its successes (depending on what view one takes).

So, what of 2004? Are we to expect more of the same? Judging from what I've seen, it seems little will change. Even after the turmoil and the glory, when we eventually sit back and review 2004, what will we reflect upon?

Corpus, Nuit Blanche
Enter a world where sleepless night thrives, a Nuit Blanche filled with performers, dancers, mimes and thespians. Visual effects stimulate the eyes while music filters into the ears with tuned energy. The often-closed circuit of theatre breathes unfettered in the open night air, able to move unrestricted by conventional theatre walls.

"There is no traditional venue for our work," says Corpus co-artistic director David Danzon.
