For the University of Calgary Dinos women's hockey team winning is everything.

At least it has been this year as they have gone 12-2 and look to finish at the top of the Alberta Colleges Athletics Conference league with eight games remaining.

Helping maintain the superior level of domination throughout the year is fourth-year netminder Katie Urness.

  Spreading out the corePDF files may take a moment to load

If you ever go into downtown Calgary you've no doubt seen what is often summed up as the homeless problem.

Here's hoping no one listening to Folie a Deux begins to lose their mind. Fall Out Boy's latest effort-- the title of which implies a transmission of psychosis from one person to another-- may incite madness, but at least it will be a happy madness. Although it has its moments, Folie a Deux is nothing more than the latest in contemporary bubblegum pop.
