After a weekend off from competition, our Dinos women's hockey team felt well rested and prepared for a weekend fight against their Calgary rivals, the Mount Royal College Cougars, Nov. 18-19.

However, much like previous games this season, the Dinos were unable to put forth their best effort in their first of two games, convincingly losing 4-0. Some positives did come out of this game however. The Dinos broke out of their own end consistently and successfully, something we have not seen much of so far this season.

It was over three years ago that the UN first asked American officials for an invitation to assess the prison camps at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, the US-run prison where alleged terrorists are being held without any formal charge. The UN's intentions were to examine all aspects of the prison camp by sending three experts, one on religious freedom, one on arbitrary detention and one on torture, to interview guards, medical staff, and, of course, the prisoners themselves.

  Show some respectPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Last Friday, I saw something that disturbed me. I saw a clear case of vandalism and lack of respect from one group or individual toward another. I am referring to the vandalism of the Campus Pro-Life club's display in the clubs' display case. Many stickers were pasted to the outside of the display saying things like, "no vagina, no opinion" and "keep your opinion out of my uterus."

Editor, the Gauntlet,

[Re: "Digitize your life OneNote at a time," November 17th, 2005]

I was amazed by the incredibly interesting article that was written on Microsoft OneNote. I can't wait to see this week's article on new food sensations now found at AW.

I certainly hope that the Gauntlet was paid for this obvious advertisement masquerading as journalism.

  Censoring stupidityPDF files may take a moment to load

The Campus Pro-Life club would like you to get angry. They'd like you to rip down their posters and confront them publicly. They'd like to be able to call the police when somebody vandalizes their graphic photos equating abortion with historical atrocities. More than anything, they'd love all of this to happen in front of the cameras.
