  The Muslim, Pt. 1 of 3PDF files may take a moment to load

Since the events of September 11th 2001, the Middle East and the Islamic religion have been at the forefront of Western thought. This interest has led to a war on terror, heightened security measures throughout the world and a dramatic increase in racial profiling. Often labelled as terrorists, fundamentalists and militants, Muslims have become possibly the most misunderstood group of people today.

  Letter: Sickening ShowersPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I am writing to you because I believe the state of the ladies' locker room in the Kinesiology Complex is worthy of some investigative reporting.

In the toilet area, taps spray water in all directions, leaving the vanity and those using the taps soaked in water. At least one of the stall doors does not close properly and has been this way for weeks. Metal containers installed for the disposal of used feminine hygiene products are also falling off the wall in a number of stalls.

  Can the pill really kill?PDF files may take a moment to load

There is no denying the popularity of the birth control pill to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Whether you're walking through the Science link or using the toilet, it is impossible to escape the three beautiful young women encouraging you to accept mission Alesse. Jane, a 21-year-old woman I spoke to, told me she started taking the pill at the age of 15. Jane said it was her doctor who encouraged her to begin taking Diane 35 for her mild acne problem.

Re: "Ralph Klein begins new career as Mount Royal College instructor," Katy Anderson, Nov. 2, 2006.

For someone so enamoured with research, dean Kathleen Scherf should have considered doing some before commenting on the newest endowed chair at Mount Royal.

"Mount Royal serves a different clientele than we do," she sniffed upon hearing of the appointment. "We hire scholars, people who do research and have PhDs"

  Remembering in the 21st centuryPDF files may take a moment to load

Four days after D-Day in February 1945, Joe Rosenthal climbed the volcano on the Pacific island of Iwo Jima with his camera. Rosenthal's photograph of Allied troops raising the American flag, taken at the peak of the mountain, became an enduring symbol of the Second World War, immortalizing the mixture of feelings during that triumphant moment and earning Rosenthal a Pulitzer Prize. In Virginia, the photograph was transformed into a larger-than-life memorial.
