  Dinos disappoint despite desperate divingPDF files may take a moment to load

The battle of Alberta was fought at McMahon Stadium Sat., Oct. 15. While the first 45 minutes of the game were played valiantly, the result was dismal: the Dinos lost 20-10 to the University of Alberta Golden Bears.

While the score looks better on paper than some of their other losses this season, this game held more significance because it was against their U of A rivals.

Advanced Education Minister Dave Hancock made headlines this week after alluding to some radical changes on the table in the province's post-secondary review.

What both parties fail to see is that the whole maelstrom around video games will not be solved by the outright banning of violent content as Thompson would like to believe or by silencing censors as video game proponents suggest.

Capitalism has fully infested the music industry, rotting away its core. You've got record companies at the helm of assembly lines manufacturing plastic pop by faux lesbian duos or boy bands with the word "town" in their name. Then you have the musicians in the business for music's sake, struggling with the delicate nature of music downloading, fighting for artistic control and dealing with industry bureaucrats.

The Dinos cross-country squad tied up their sneakers for a race down in Mr. George W. Bush's promised land. Okay, it was Spokane, but the Dinos teams collected some hardware to sneak back through customs.

The women's team dominated the field, sealing the competition in a plastic bag and leaving them to suffocate. They placed six ladies in the top 10, and nine in the top 20. These astounding results kept competitors' scores well over double the Dinos' 22-point total.
