  Selling sex, part twoPDF files may take a moment to load

"The profession of a prostitute is the only career in which the maximum income is paid to the newest apprentice. It is the one calling in which at the beginning the only exertion is that of self-indulgence; all the prizes are at the commencement. It is the ever-new embodiment of the old fable of the sale of the soul to the Devil. The tempter offers wealth, comfort, excitement, but in return the victim must sell her soul, nor does the other party forget to exact his due to the uttermost farthing."

-William Booth

  Letter: Energy ConspiracyPDF files may take a moment to load

The Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment and Economy recently held a lecture on "energy, security and the long war of the 21st century." The speaker was James Woolsey, former director of the CIA under the Clinton administration. Not surprisingly, about two thirds of the lecture was about the devil terrorists, the devil Nazis, the devil communists and all kinds of other devils. However, the most striking part was the one about energy. According to this still influential person, the U.S.

I am wondering if the university has thought about Access Copyright alternatives, such as open access publishing. The best way to get out from under the thumb of this collective that is primarily controlled by old-economy academic publishers is to move the university to modern publishing models. As an example, MIT in the U.S.

  Letter: Students Need To Clean Up ActPDF files may take a moment to load

I am a smoker and I am appalled that students are putting their butts out on the ground--most of the time right next to ashtrays, or sometimes as close as a few steps away. In addition to picking up butts, I have also picked up empty beer and liquor bottles from Parking Lot 12, and in front of MacEwan Student Centre.

He died doing what he loved--being stabbed in the heart by stingrays.

You may have happened across the news that Steve Irwin, Australia's "Crocodile Hunter," from the show of the same name, was killed this month, much to the whimsical chagrin of everyone in the world.

You and your partner have been together for a while now and intimacy is becoming slightly too routine. Not to worr­y--this is an issue many couples face sooner or later. It can be an excellent time to strengthen your relationship and forge a trust that will carry you into the coming years, or conversely, to realize irreconcilable differences sooner than later and go your separate ways.

  What mainstream media never told youPDF files may take a moment to load

The conflict in Lebanon has been splattered all over the news for the last couple of months. Presently, the United Nations is struggling to bring in more peacekeepers from Spain and Indonesia to... keep the peace. By sensationalizing who is the victim and who is evil, the media has exhausted the topic. In this 'world crisis,' who is to blame?

  Letter: Dry is fun, too!PDF files may take a moment to load

In response to your supplement in support of students drinking and getting drunk, I challenge you and your staff to put together an even cooler supplement that is against alcohol and promotes alternative ways to have fun on and off of the U of C campus.

As you are certainly aware, alcohol and alcohol related incidents are rampant on campuses including binge drinking, failed classes, accidents and death. Alcohol has been considered by some researchers to be the number one problem that must be addressed on campuses.
