  Photography 101: Depth of field:PDF files may take a moment to load

The depth of field in a photo is the closest and furthest distances which are in focus. Once a certain point is focused upon, a distance in front of and beyond that focused point will also be in focus. This range is determined by the f-stop used. The lower the f-stop value, the less the depth of field. For example, an f-stop of 2.8 will have a very shallow depth of field, where as an f-stop of 8 will yield a greater depth of field.

  Movie Interview: Childstar, but no Michael JacksonPDF files may take a moment to load

Think back to a different time. A time when sweat beads off the foreheads of rollerbladers, kids stumble with triple-stacked ice cream to the wading pool at Eau Claire Market and ducks hide in the shade across from Prince's Island Park. All along the street, leaves are yellow and tumble to the sidewalks, to be crunched by the busy tread of pedestrians. It's a gorgeous day in late September 2004.

  The university respondsPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Re: "Staying abreast of sexual awareness," Mar. 3, 2005.

I write to express the University of Calgary's deep concern and disappointment with the publication of the gratuitously graphic photograph on page 5 in the Mar. 3 edition of the Gauntlet. By any reasonable benchmark of responsible journalism, it exceeded community standards and served no defensible purpose in the context of the related news story.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Re: "Staying abreast of sexual awareness," Mar. 3, 2005.

I am utterly amazed at the reaction a nude body has had on Calgary. I almost fell down laughing when I read that it was an exotic dancer complaining that her picture was printed in the Gauntlet. Did I misread the article or did Ms. Houston encourage students to "...get the confidence to try new things" as the U of C "...is the place to expand your mind in different ways"?

Holy crap!

  Blended learning a mixed blessingPDF files may take a moment to load

"It attempts to give the university what our official view of blended learning is," said Students' Union Vice-President Academic Laura Schultz. "It clarifies the positives of blended learning and the concerns we feel students have. It reflects the positive and negative aspect of blended learning."

'Garrison believes this approach to teaching combines the strengths of online learning and traditional teaching methods.

  A great whodunnit mysteryPDF files may take a moment to load

In a shocking turn of events, nearly all of the issues of last week's Gauntlet disappeared from around campus. With the shelves bare of our perverse attempt at journalism, it was decided that pen ought to be put to paper in an effort to find the culprit; as such, we would need to appeal to the trinity of all detective work: the motive, the means, and the opportunity.

  Television Interview: A few extra minutes for Jon PDF files may take a moment to load

There are certain things required to be an effective villain, especially in the realm of reality television. You need to speak your mind, even when nobody wants to hear it. You need to hold your composure while telling the most blatant of lies. And of course, you need to be an enormous pain in the ass.

  Movie Review: Robots too mechanical for adults to laughPDF files may take a moment to load

Perhaps we've come to expect too much from animated movies. Over the past several years, the whole idea of the animated feature turned on its head. We've been spoiled with movies like Monsters Inc., Shrek, and The Incredible, which were all sufficiently silly for the kids, but have the intelligence and wit for the grown-up crowd.

  Movie Review: Surprise, Vin Diesel still not funnyPDF files may take a moment to load

The early '90s were sad. Besides the repetition of "righteous" and Bermuda short wearing wannabe surfers, it also marked the beginning of Hulk Hogan's acting career--one most of us would like to forget. Except Disney, it seems, as they decided to remake Hulkamaniac's Mr. Nanny.
