  A Shakespeare-inspired talePDF files may take a moment to load

For some people, the works of William Shakespeare are a source of boredom and a chore to be endured during that one high school English class. For others, like famed playwright Tom Stoppard, the Bard's words were jumping-off points, inspiring a sub-genre of film and theatre devoted to exploring fringe elements of Shakespearian prose. Stoppard's play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, itself has earned many admirers, including Morpheus Theatre's director of production, Michelle Brandenburg.

If you're like me, when it comes time to fight, you kick your opponent in the shin, squeal, run about 10 yards and get the crap kicked out of you. If you're Jarome Iginla, you look your opponent square in the eye, rip off your helmet and proceed to re-arrange his face.

  When carrots cryPDF files may take a moment to load

It appears the crunch is on for carrot production in the United Kingdom. Recently reported on the BBC, the European Union's decision to ban over 20 pesticide ingredients has had a mixed response. To the farmers and pesticide companies, this is a kick straight to the nuts; they claim that it would cut carrot production by 100 per cent. But to the general population who come in contact with products treated with these pesticide ingredients every day, it seems like a damn good idea.

  Bad ideas poorly executedPDF files may take a moment to load

The Canadian Union of Public Employees is often known for its workplace protection and unionization efforts. Without its actions in the early 20th century, many workers would not have collective bargaining and would be unable to negotiate with businesses for better benefits. It has been a strong social justice fighter, too. CUPE protested for disability assistance and women's rights. However, CUPE now has a big image problem and has been called too distant from the people it is supposed to represent.

  Questioning threesomesPDF files may take a moment to load

So my girlfriend of three years finally agreed to have a threesome with me. It's been a long-time fantasy of mine and we talked about it until she felt comfortable with trying it out. We went away for New Year's and hung out at this club checking the scene; we decided it would be better to hook up with someone we didn't really know. We found this girl and took her back to our room. The night was great and we had a lot of fun, but she doesn't want to do it again. I don't get it. How can I get her interested in round two?
