  CJSW construction on holdPDF files may take a moment to load

Construction has been halted on a new space for CJSW as disagreements over costs and communication problems between the campus radio station and the University of Calgary Students' Union have mired the project in further negotiations.

The relationship between the SU and CJSW has been strained after CJSW suggested the U of C conduct an independent audit of the SU's costs for the project. The university auditor concluded the SU was charging CJSW 10 per cent more than the audit deemed necessary.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

[Re: "Point: Intelligent Design," Opinions, December 8, 2005]

I'm not a biologist. My true love is mathematics, and I admit there's much about evolutionary theory I don't understand nor am in any position to defend. But the wonderful thing about this "debate" is that nine times out of 10 it doesn't require defending the science behind it--though such defenses do exist and can be provided by people smarter than me--but simply attacking ridiculous logic.

  Welcome to the year of the bastardPDF files may take a moment to load

Last year was kind of a crappy one. Michael Jackson walked away from conviction despite the the majority of the jurors being convinced of his guilt, natural disasters ravaged the globe, and our nation suffered an entire winter without Don Cherry. But what's done is done. Let all acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind.

Sadly though, forecasts for 2006 aren't looking good. In fact, it seems as though everyone hates you.

If you're a hockey fanatic, you probably planted your ass on your couch all Christmas break for the World Junior Hockey Championships. It was eventful; Canada won a second straight gold medal despite being underdogs and die-hard fans were left wondering how, in Division III, the Armenian goalie managed to make 83 saves on 133 shots for a 50-0 loss against Iceland. Although Iceland had a goalie in net, they would've won the game without him as Armenia only got 10 shots on goal.

Like Much Music's Dance Mix '93, the Dinos women's basketball team continue to prove they're the top of the crop. They went into the holidays on a six-game winning streak and, after a quick turkey dinner, returned to the University of Calgary still hungry for more. Dinner was served in the form of the annual Holiday Hoops tournament in the Jack Simpson Gymnasium.

  Montana makes Dinos moan morbidlyPDF files may take a moment to load

The Brandon University Bobcats bob-cut the Dinos men's basketball team deep Jan. 6-7 as the weekend's results were not to plan.

Friday night left fans optimistic as the Dinos took to the floor with cohesion and energy. They jolted the Bobcats by shooting 50 per cent from the field and 88 per cent from the charity stripe. Captain Chris Wright and protege Ross Bekkering--ranked second and sixth respectively in Canada West for defensive rebounds--helped the Dinos out-rebound the Bobcats 46-33.

One would not expect the 1-9 University of Saskatchewan Huskies to pose any threat to the 8-2 Dinos women's volleyball team. But then again, one would also not expect Rob Schnieder to make another Deuce Bigelow movie.

In the spirit of Rob's fantastic acting prowess, our ladies came out a little weak Jan. 7-8 against the Huskie ladies. Saturday's first set saw our ladies fall behind early, regroup with a six-point run to lead 16-12 at the second technical break and secure the win 25-20.

  Dinos can't recover from nosedivePDF files may take a moment to load

While most students were relishing the last few hours of their winter break, the Dinos men's volleyball team was picking up their season right where they left off before final exams. Unfortunately, where they left off was a tailspin that saw the team's record fall to 2-8 in Canada West conference play.
