In my mind, few more than three exceptional zombie movies have ever been made. It's odd, the Italian horror explosion in the '70s opened the door for about 100 hack directors to ply their trade with countless "cinematic" offerings featuring torrents of blood and legions of undead.

  Pirates of the CaribbeanPDF files may take a moment to load

There's a voice in my head telling me not to name Pirates of the Caribbean best movie of 2003. It's Disney, for crying out loud, and it's based on an amusement park ride! That means it's kin-folk with The Country Bears, and encouraging the production of that kind of dreck is treason of the worst kind.

In America, spelling is a cutthroat game. A missing vowel, an extra consonant or, heaven forbid, a Canadian spelling could mean the difference between victory and heartache. And in the end, all but one will make a mistake.

  Finally, Canadian history in one delicious hourPDF files may take a moment to load

Think back. Do you remember anything on Canadian history from grade school social class? Me neither. Anything I ever learned about our history was from CBC's beloved "Heritage Moments," and even then I didn't really pay much attention as it was just another commercial interrupting Degrassi Junior High.

It's alright, you can say it. No one will judge you here.

"I don't get it."

That felt a lot better, didn't it? I think we can proceed now.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

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

Protests aren't meant to influence decision makers, they're meant to influence the public. We need to get public pressure on our side. We can hand out informative graphs and statistics as much as we like, but if no one is paying attention it won't do much good. Activism gets attention. We need that first.

  The beauty beneathPDF files may take a moment to load

Isn't it enough to live in a world where we are all judged harshly and cruelly on our outward appearances? A world where our insecurities fuel innumerable multi-million dollar industries created to sculpt, disguise, change, flaunt and otherwise alter our outward appearance to fit a narrowly defined standard of beauty. Isn't it enough that we all harbour some small place within us that is terrified, horribly terrified, of being thought of as, dare I say it, ugly?

In order to assist a small committee of faculty members, staff and Students' Union representatives who are working on developing some resources on academic honesty, we need your feedback. The Academic Integrity Committee is seeking to define what 'honesty' means in the academic world and how relevant it is to you, your program and/or your faculty.
