Apparently not all dinosaurs die off when winter comes to town. With a chill descending over the West Varsity pitch the University of Calgary Dinos battled the University of Manitoba Bisons to a 1-1 draw and then followed that up with a 2-1 win over the University of Regina Cougars a day later.

  UCLA Bruins bruise Dinos in gold medal matchPDF files may take a moment to load

The University of Calgary Dinos men's volleyball team was back in action at home this past weekend to host the Husky Dino Cup. Though the team suffered an unfortunate loss three sets to one (25-19, 20-25, 32-30, 25-23) in the gold medal match against the NCAA UCLA Bruins, on the whole, the weekend was a positive one for the v-ballers.

  The truth of feminismPDF files may take a moment to load

Thanks to popular culture, the mere mention of the word "feminist" can conjure up many images. We imagine the jackboot-wearing bra-burner of the 1960s, with a profound hatred of all things masculine. We hear U.S. Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin hailed as an exemplary feminist. We think of the Spice Girls-induced "girl power" craze of the 1990s. We think of the pro-choice movement, the woman's suffrage movements and Taking Back the Night.

  Dudes on the pillPDF files may take a moment to load

If modern medicine continues to work on contraceptives, there may be some bad news for day time TV junkies, who will soon have one less Maury Povich topic to discuss with their friends. It looks like we are getting ever closer to the newest form of birth control that in some cases could take the guess work out of paternity testing: the male birth control pill.

  An open letter to Stephen HarperPDF files may take a moment to load

Dear Mr. Harper,

As a child of energy sector workers who moved to Calgary from the Maritimes, a combination of indoctrination, ideology and pragmatism has molded me over time into a Conservative Party supporter. I'm not a fan of your social policies, but as my father says, "social issues come and go, the market is what's important." Voters seem to agree with him, as all eight Calgary seats-- and 27 of 28 in Alberta ­-- went Conservative in the election.

  SU View: How will a 4.1 per cent increase in tuition affect you?PDF files may take a moment to load

We've had a federal election. The SU byelection will be a done deal by the time you read this and our neighbours to the south of the border will elect their new president in early November. But the opportunity to make your voice heard and influence your future, especially here at the U of C, has not passed.

As your Students' Union President, I represent you at the University Board of Governors-- the body that makes all the financial and operational decisions for this university.

  Aborting free speechPDF files may take a moment to load

The Central Student Association of Guelph University denied a pro-life group on campus club status Oct. 1. The CSA cited violations of policy and the infringement of the rights of women on campus as reasons for the unanimous denial that attempted to halt the abortion debate.

A.C. Grayling told the story of a Hungarian MP, who after a long discussion stood up and stated, "Everything has been said, but not everybody has said it yet."
