  Sexy questionsPDF files may take a moment to load

I'm walking with my husband down 17th looking for a place to have drinks on Valentine's Day. We find a place and get comfy in our seats. We notice to the right that a guy and girl are going at it, like I think he was stimulating her under the table. The weird thing was, I was fascinated, I got turned on and I liked watching. Normally this kind of PDA is over the line, but it's almost like on this day everyone gets to play a wild card. This brings two questions: How can I try this without being exposed? And how far is too far?

  BSD in financial straitsPDF files may take a moment to load

With construction of the Taylor Family Library displacing Bermuda Shorts Day from its usual location, the Students' Union is hoping to use Quality Money to cover additional costs.

This year's BSD is facing financial problems because of the downturned economy and the construction of the TFL.

Historically, BSD is held in the grassy area to the south of the MacEwan Student Centre. This year it was forced to move, as the construction project is in the way.

Well, what to say ["Pro-lifers lose club status," Katy Anderson, Feb. 12, 2009]? This is exactly why I moved away from Canada to attend university in the United States 20 years ago and why I continue to live here today as a dual citizen.

  Summer jobs subsidized by SUPDF files may take a moment to load

Thankfully, full-time students will be offered subsidized summer jobs that directly relate to their degree programs and future career aspirations through the University of Calgary's Students' Union Student Work Experience Enrichment Program.

  Art history on hold for reviewPDF files may take a moment to load

The Art History department at the University of Calgary has put a hold on admissions for art history majors for the 2009/10 year.

The art history program is under review and no new students will be accepted into the program next year.

"Programs are routinely revised and analyzed by department heads," said music and art communications manager Jenny Conway Fisher. "It's a way of finding out what our niche is, what our expertise is and ensuring that that program is as effective as possible."

  The many qualities of BSDPDF files may take a moment to load

The Students' Union is using Quality Money to patch up a hole in their Bermuda Shorts Day budget caused by a number of issues, including the recession and a change of location. Though this is a fine temporary fix, to call for money for the next three years of BSDs is only encouraging fiscal irresponsibility by future generations of SU executives.

At worst, the budget deficit could be as high as $48,000 this year and the SU is calling for $30,000 a year for three years.

Islamic countries are demanding that the definition be changed for the United Nations Rapporteur on Human Rights, so that offence to religions can be stifled. The Cairo Declaration seeks to enforce shariah law, whereby critiques of Islam will not be tolerated. Offended Muslims violently rioted for a week after The Statesman, a Kolkata-based newspaper, reprinted Hari's article.

The countdown begins for Clifford Harris as he casts his final 45 days in front of the camera in "T.I.'s Road to Redemption." Awaiting his final day of reckoning, one that could land him in jail for up to 30 years, rapper T.I. attempts to steer seven young hustlers off their prison-bound path and out of death's way.
