As CNN continues to report on the latest "crisis in America," the networks' stories following the Hurricane Katrina aftermath dominate the CNN airwaves and prove the fallibility of mainstream media with their sensationalized stories.

In the last few years, of the University of Calgary's Dinos teams, one stands out as the most decorated and recognised. They have won three of the last five Canada West Championships and a national title in 2004, and proven they still have what it takes with a highly coveted undefeated regular season last year.

  In early fall, they're ready for basketball, not the mallPDF files may take a moment to load

Things on the Dinos women's basketball squad are changing faster than a nun can smack you with a ruler. But the always-dynamic Head Coach Shawnee Harle does not foresee trouble on the horizon.

"I don't look at this as a rebuilding year," she said with the confidence of your wise mother telling you you'll love your first day of school. "With the personnel we have, this will give us the opportunity to change our style of play."

I have spent the last two and a half months tuned intently on the British Broadcasting Corporation online radio feed. Now, you must be wondering why I would be listening to the BBC. In fact, it was to listen to a game that so many have heard of, but few know. Yes, I mean cricket.

  Dual defeats don't discourage DinosPDF files may take a moment to load

The battle of Alberta saw the Dinos defeated 34-20 at the hands of the University of Alberta Golden Bears Sat., Sept. 10. In front of 3,376 fans, the Dinos tried to prove that the previous week's dismal defeat against the University of Manitoba Bisons was uncharacteristic of what this team is capable of. While the Dinos' performance improved significantly, they were still unable to attain a victory.

  With more rookies than returnees, the coach does the hazingPDF files may take a moment to load

With 14 rookies and a roster of 26--plus some injured senior players--the Dinos men's soccer team's prospects don't look so good.

"It's going to be a challenging year," admitted Head Coach Andy Gibbs.

The team appears to be blessed yearly by the fountain of youth, having battled with a rookie-laden roster last year as well. Because the University of Calgary hosted the Canada West finals last year, the men were guaranteed a berth in the playoffs, and concentrated on development during the season.

When it comes to sweet starts, the Dinos women's soccer team are off to one comparable with the Olsen twins. Now, the trick is to figure out how that success can keep going as long as it has for little baby Michelle from Full House.

Perhaps a publicist could do the trick, maybe even make-up artists, choreographers and a father-figure like Danny.

Fortunately, the soccersaurs Head Coach Robin Slot will be there to guide this team through the season in the manner they have begun it.

  Spun: 10 YearsPDF files may take a moment to load

It has been four years since Tool released their last album, yet there has been no shortage of new bands attempting to fill the void for prog-rock fans. Falling easily into this category is 10 Years' debut, The Autumn Effect.

Although lead singer Jesse Hasek's clean, expressive vocals stand out from the sludge of unremarkable rock, the majority of the album plods along predictably. Lyrically, the songs fall flat, lacking the poetic dexterity characteristic of exemplary prog-rock.
