  Lost and found solution still missingPDF files may take a moment to load

So you've lost your $500, limited edition, lucky squash racquet. It's disappeared out of your sweaty little hands, literally, and after your panic attack, you regroup and decide to haul ass to the lost and found at Campus Security. Brilliant, only until you get there and discover that they only hold keys, wallets, purses, cell phones and items valued over $1,000. You are directed toward the blue box across the hall, much like the ones from elementary school.

The University of Calgary is facing a serious public relations problem. With another round of massive budget cuts scheduled for the next four years, guaranteed maximum tuition increases over the same period and the announcement this week that this institution is sitting next to last on the Maclean's ranking of universities in the medical/doctoral category, it is fairly safe to say that President Harvey Weingarten is in damage control mode.

  Music Interview: Offsides ready to get onsidePDF files may take a moment to load

Some musicians choose to be independent, while others have independence thrust upon them. Of course, those in the latter group are commonly referred to as unemployed. Such is not the case for Montreal-based hip-hop group Offsides. After forming in 1996 the group briefly shopped their demo for a major label deal before deciding to come out on their own label, OdoubleF Records. Made up of emcees Malicious, Bailey, and Lokey, along with dj D.R. One, Offsides speak as confidently as they rap.

More than five years ago the Borderguards hit the Calgary punk scene with a vengeance, and an atomic oi punk sound. They've survived drummers and bass players leaving, and their sound has evolved into something stronger. Fusing an eclectic amalgam of rock and roll, blues, rock-a-billy, and a shred of their old punk style, the band rocks out with a contemporary sound.
