It was a David versus Goliath contest and this time Goliath kicked the snot out of David.

The Dinos women's hockey team defeated the Mount Royal Cougars 2-1 on Friday and followed that up with a 6-0 walloping on Saturday. Everything went perfectly for the Dinos at the Olympic Oval Saturday night and they improved their stranglehold on first place in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference standings, moving four points up on the second place SAIT Trojans.

Students at the University of Calgary are in the midst of a heated feud with the University of Alberta and 10 other schools, but the reward isn't a shiny gold trophy-- it's saving lives.

Held annually for the past six years by Canadian Blood Services, the Blood 101 challenge pits students at 12 post-secondary institutions in 11 cities against each other in a race to see which school can donate the most blood.

  Letter: Self indulgencePDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I was deeply disturbed by all of the posters spread around the university by the Students' Union this week. Given that there are so many candidates who say they want to increase the university's sustainability, why the fuck are so many trees being cut down?

The Canadian dollar is down, the economy is crumbling, tuition is still rising, people are taking on second jobs just to make ends meet and taking out second mortgages on their houses. Still, February is full of shows that will make you want to pawn the last of your stuff for the tickets.

  The tao of ZhaoPDF files may take a moment to load

Being that he doesn't actually intend to win the election, one might think that Jeremy Zhao's Students' Union presidential campaign is entirely superfluous, but that is not entirely correct. Though there is a strong possibility that he would resign during his acceptance speech next Thursday in the Den, Zhao's campaign is actually quite beneficial for this university's student politics.

It's been a busy week at 251 MacEwan Student Centre.

Not only is the 66th Students' Union general election heating up, but the 65th Student Legislative Council is dealing with a Black History Month gone wrong and a decision by university administration to charge six of its students with trespassing.

To commemorate Black History Month, the SU typically hosts a number of awareness events for students.

The lack of planning for events celebrating this year's Black History Month is causing concern about vice-president events Luke Valentine among a few Students' Union members. As of yet, there is one major event planned that will cost students $25 at the door.

"Usually we try to throw as many events for free for students as possible," said Valentine, who is campaigning to keep his VP events position for another year.
