  Flamingo Challenge: Fit, but you know itPDF files may take a moment to load

As part of the deal of being the test group for Pink Flamingo, me and my nemesis were put through various physiological assessments to determine our level of fitness. These same tests are employed on Olympic-level athletes, to help their training program and to monitor their progress.

  Flamingo Challenge: Introducing the combatPDF files may take a moment to load

Despite a host of other responsibilities, the challenge was too intriguing to turn down. A chance to try something new, write a few entertaining stories for the paper and sculpt this hunk of skinny flab I call my body into a chiseled piece of man meat. I could put my quarter century of hard livin' behind me and turn the page on fatty foods, excessive drink and my desk-pushing lay-about lifestyle.

It is an extraordinary situation for a faculty member to sue the university where they are an employee, as Haskayne School of Business professor Peter Bowal well knows.

Five bucks could be blown on a specialty coffee at Starbucks, or the same five bucks could help determine Alberta's next premier.

Canadians rarely get the opportunity to vote directly for their leader, but with Premier Ralph Klein's official resignation Wed., Sept. 20, the $5 investment it takes to purchase a Progressive Conservative Party membership, combined with a trip to the polling station on Nov. 25 means Albertans can directly pick the next ruler of this fair province.
