  Degree and career counseling in Old Mac HallPDF files may take a moment to load

Way off in old Mac Hall, comfortably nestled into a quiet corner is the Counseling and Student Development Centre. Inside, the odd student mills about, filling out forms or looking through information booklets, but space certainly isn't a precious commodity in this waiting room. The excess of space here isn't because the services offered in these offices are below par, but because many students don't know it exists, or what its qualified staff can do for them.

  Harcourt's idea of communityPDF files may take a moment to load

Move over synergy, you've been replaced by sustainability as the new big business buzz word.

As Calgary's population grows past the one million mark, sustainability is a concept that will only continue to be forefront, and careful urban planning is of the utmost importance to ensure Calgary is inhabitable for future generations.

From Mikhail Gorbachev to Noam Chomsky, the James S. Palmer lecture series has been bringing great minds to Calgary for nearly a decade. This year Robert Reich, a Vaclev Havel prize winner, published author and former U.S. President Bill Clinton's Secretary of Labour came to lecture on the apparent evils of globalization and technology.

Re: "Disappointment over SU smoking policy," Sept. 23, 2004

It sounds to me that Smoke-Free U of C Comittee Chair Joan McDonald believes that the average student at the University of Calgary is in the 4th grade. Her arguments are weak and it sounds like she has nothing better to do than impose her will on the students here at the university.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Re: "Would you like some cheese with that wine," Sept. 23.

As the one who would like to start a wine appreciation group mentioned in the article, I would encourage anyone to e-mail me at dancingredshoes@yahoo.ca with any ideas or interest. A group of people can sample a couple of bottles for a pretty good price I find, plus I would be more than happy to do a little bit of teaching on the subject of wine.

  Deconstructing the status quoPDF files may take a moment to load

Politics is a game of ideas, having them and putting them into action. But for every version of this game, there are rules. Some of those unwritten rules may be broken as times advance, but some of these rules are there for a reason. It should not be surprising that someone who proposes earthshaking change in a game that already functions well is ignored. In municipal politics in Calgary, proposing sweeping change or big ideas to a widely apathetic audience is, like an old Chinese proverb says, playing the lute to an ox.

  Cell free campus: a better initiativePDF files may take a moment to load

"Ring........Ring"

Except it's not a ring, it's a treble sound that is whiny in pitch, and is supposed to Mozart, but God knows if Mozart heard his music butchered like that, he'd roll a 720 in his grave.

You can't sit in class for one hour without a cellphone screwing up the lecture and pissing off the prof. And I certainly do not blame the profs. If someone lacked the respect to turn the phone off before I gave a lecture, I'd sooner spit in their shoes than teach quantum mechanics.

  Some bumps along the wayPDF files may take a moment to load

Had the girls of the Dinos Field Hockey team spent Friday and Saturday night getting drunk at the Den as I did, their regular season record would not be any different. Their first Canada West tournament was played Sept. 24-26 in Vancouver, BC. Albeit no wins were to be had, the ladies did learn some lessons.

But we'll have plenty of time to get to those after we review the tragic losses.
