  Spun: Mix Master MikePDF files may take a moment to load

"Music" is a hard word to define. From great symphonies to banging a rhythm on a tabletop, humanity has simply known music by instinct. Somewhere along music's great timeline, someone got the idea to scratch records to a drumbeat, throwing in distorted keyboards and sound bites from 70's era science fiction movies for good measure. The art of the DJ is born.

  The Art of Weight GainPDF files may take a moment to load

When looking at any popular culture magazine, one is bombarded with the image of the perfect human being: the toned, sculpted bodies and perfect celebrities wearing the latest fashions.

We have been forced to accept this as the model of perfection, and those who do not are shunned or marginalized. However, there are individuals out there who choose to defy this heteronormative discourse, by not subscribing to heteronormal ideals.

  Trojans break three timesPDF files may take a moment to load

Like a 23-year old computer science major, the Dinos women's hockey team is having difficulty scoring. This past weekend, they had a skate date with SAIT and NAIT. Fate didn't wait, their goals came too late. Their wins total is still shaped like a plate. That's a zero, mate. Man we're great.

Fri., Oct. 29 our ladies met the Nooks of NAIT. A 4-1 loss doesn't leave much room for positive comment.

"We need to score goals," lamented Head Coach Julie Healy. "We didn't shoot the puck enough."

Allison Dube is an instructor in the department of Political Science. After listening to him for less than ten minutes, it is immediately apparent that while he loves his work, he is horribly frustrated. Allison Dube, along with about 500 other University of Calgary faculty members, is a sessional instructor.

"I love this institution but I feel, without question, that they are taking advantage of the love I have for doing what I do," said Dube.

  Weyler and MePDF files may take a moment to load

Academic Probation: The first time I heard about Greenpeace was on TV shows like the Simpsons or Saturday Night Live, who were very interested in lampooning the organization. Do you feel like the media ever got what you guys were doing?

Rex Weyler: Oh yeah, the media got it, on the one hand, but anything that's successful is going to get mocked. Everything is going to get ridiculed, that's just the nature of the world. At the same time Greenpeace had become part of our culture, so it was fair game.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I was shocked and dismayed to read Greg Clayton's ill-informed letter to Kevin Allen. As a Full Frontal community volunteer for this past year I have enjoyed the exciting, creative, inclusive, challenging and enriching environment of NUTV.

  In other news... tuition rises againPDF files may take a moment to load

The Students' Union's battle on tuition ended in bittersweet defeat last week, as tuition consultations with University of Calgary officials yielded a maximum tuition increase for all students.

Tuition is on the rise to the tune of 5.8 per cent and administration is planning to repeat maximum increases for at least the next four years. Students will pay $4,856 for a full course load next year.
