  Bush is a good dudePDF files may take a moment to load

Sometimes you just have to feel sorry for George W. Bush. With just under a week left in his eight-year term as United States President, Bush already has political muckrakers shoveling dirt onto his grave and declaring him the worst leader in the history of the country. The only problem is they're conducting the autopsy while the body is still alive.

When I opened my 12-piece cookware set of pots and pans this Christmas and was filled with joy and excitement, I was forced to admit to myself that I was growing up.

We've all been there, some more than others. You wake up the next morning and fight through the haze to get across the bed, everything a blur because you slept with your contacts in-- again.

  Letter: Why you should become a nursePDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I am writing to extol the virtues of my profession, nursing. I came to nursing later in life, graduating in 1993 at the age of 32. Over the years, I have never regretted my decision to enter nursing. It is a portable career; I can literally go anywhere in the world to practise a myriad of nursing specialities.

Telekinetic breakthrough

A new technology is said to give people the rare ability to move objects with their minds. Mind Flex is a game designed by Mattel to read electrical brain impulses while a person is thinking. Children use their thoughts to manoeuvre a small foam ball through a table-top obstacle course. The device, which looks like headphones, is expected to reach store shelves in North America later this year.

  Grad students running out of spacePDF files may take a moment to load

When one thinks of crowded work environments, space ships, submarines and the floor of the New York Stock Exchange come to mind. One space that people would not think of is the office of the University of Calgary Graduate Students' Association.

At the Board of Governor's meeting Dec. 5, the GSA requested additional office space. This came in light of the cramped quarters that currently comprise the GSA's offices.
