Students Race Against Gridlock By: Mark A. Cadiz

R

eady, set, go! Produced in the spring and released throughout the summer, The Big Race made a huge splash, helping to bring much needed attention to Metrolinx’s The Big Move - a plan to extend mass rapid transit across the GTA. The reality based web series created by Centennial College students, saw three contestants whiz around the GTA during rush hour, pushing the limits of our transit. One of the original six members of the project, Meaghan Savage, 24, is all too familiar with the issues of transit. “I remember one time I had to get to Union station during the peak of rush hour Savage said. I was trying to get a piece of luggage through the crowds and I just couldn’t believe how many people were cramming into the subway.” It was a lot of hard work for the students but overall their mission to bring public awareness to Toronto’s daily commute problems were

accomplished. Centennial graduate, Nadine Bukhman, 26, also part of the original six, was in charge of liaising with the college’s film team and making sure their vision was put through. “We were very successful, especially initially, Bukhman said. We were featured on several major newspapers and online news sites.” Metrolinx says the city has the worst regional times in North America and The Big Move was their plan to get Toronto back on track. The company has already raised $16 billion of their targeted $50 billion required to see the project fully implemented.

LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED The CCSAI has a packed schedule of events for Frosh this fall. Check ccsai.ca for events at your campus and don’t miss out! By: Naomi Grosman

I

magine this coming fall, your tank tops and shorts are in the back of your closet, your homework is piling up and you don’t even have time to see a movie with your friends because the school work keeps you tied to your textbooks every evening. This will probably be the scenario in a couple of month’s time. What could possibly keep you happy through all of this? The answer is simple: Frosh Week. The memories of the good times you had back in the beginning of the semester when you started the year with a bang. Whether it’s your first year or you are returning after a long summer holiday, Frosh Week is a great way to start the school year. Jason Moseley is the CCSAI Special Events and Activities Coordinator. He is certain that the events that have been planned this year will give students something positive to look back on once school gets busy. “Once they really get into the semester there will not be any time for partying so get it out of the way now.” But it’s not all about the partying; there are other benefits to participating in the events that the school has planned for students. “Students should take part in these activities because it offers them a chance to meet new people and kick off the year right.” said Moseley. pg 12

HOW-TO

Students at CCC show us how to have a good time. Previous fall events have included mechanical bull riding, giant connect four and pie eating contests.

TOP REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN FROSH WEEK Get to know your fellow students. You never know who you’ll hit it off with and Frosh Week is a great way to meet new people. l

While you’re getting to know new people, start networking. Talking to all sorts of people from different programs and campuses can be good for your new career. Start collecting those phone numbers and business cards. l

All of the events are created with you, the student, in mind. l

Participate in college life. You’re only in college for a short time so make the most of it. l

Kick off the school year right! l

The events that have been organized have all been planned with the help of students at the college. Moseley added that they wouldn’t approve of any activities that weren’t thought of or supported by students. This year’s Frosh Week will be devoted to raising the school spirit according to Moseley and they have planned many exciting events. Terence Nelson, President of the CCSAI wants to get students excited about the events this year. Even though getting people to participate can sometimes be a challenge, he says that it will always be worth it to show up. “We know that people live a busy life and we understand that, but we still want them to experience college life to the fullest and have fun while learning,” said Nelson. pg 13

Nicole Pulsinelli is a former all the campuses involved. student of Centennial College “As long as they know about the at the CCC campus. She vaguely events at other campuses they remembers Frosh generally show up,” Week and said said Moseley. “We there was room for also offer a number W e know that of activities at each improvement when it came to the events campus as well, so people live at the CCC campus. even if they miss the a busy life... “From what I can big ones at Progress remember it was there are a number of but we still more like a day, with other opportunities want them to a mechanical bull in as well.” experience the courtyard with One of the bigger free food…” said events that Moseley college Pulsinelli. is particularly life to the “It was something excited about is you were able to do a “blockbuster” fullest. between classes, so concert in the AWC Terence it’s not like you were and the Student Nelson able to interact with Centre.

MR T Was Right, Eat Your Vitamins Fitness Services Representative James Lu is here to tell us the right vitamins to eat and their benefits. By: James Lu

T

hey can help increase energy levels, raise metabolism and assist with the recovery process. It is in our best interest to consume nutrient dense foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds to provide the body with the necessary amount of nutrients. More foods today are being labeled ‘enriched’ with nutrients that support our daily functions. Dairy milk for example is enriched with Vitamin D in Canada as mandated by our government due to our lower amount of sunlight exposure. Another option to obtaining our daily-recommended amount of nutrients is to incorporate dietary supplements such as multi vitamins into your diet. If this happens to be your choice of action it is recommended to consult your dietitian or health care provider to make an appropriate recommendation for your case.

Watching your team on game day is an exercise in passion, rooted in ancestry and driven by community. The only way to truly understand this obsession is to live the match day experience in Europe’s finest cathedrals of sport. So, what can you expect from It’s Football Day?

3 4: Wide-angle close, the subject is more prominent in the frame, and there are no distracting elements in the background or foreground.

THE BUILT-IN FLASH IS AWFUL A flash is great in a pinch if you’re in a dark environment, but the picture will likely be bad. Either due to the flash being too bright, the flash creating a reflection, or the colours turn out funny because the colour temperature of the flash is different than the environment.

THE LENS IS LOCKED AT A WIDE-ANGLE Wide-angle lenses are great for things like landscapes, but if you’re taking a picture of a single subject, it’s not the greatest. There’s a very simple fix, get closer! Chances are your subject will fill more of the frame, and emphasize more important parts of your subject.

1 2 2: Without flash, the highlights, shadows and reflections are gone, the lighting is softer and more even, and the color is more consistent.

1: With flash, it creates distracting highlights on the furniture legs, a shadow on the right side of the frame, as well as a reflection on the bike wheel’s reflector.

HOW-TO

3: Wide-angle far, the whole subject is in the frame, but so are a bunch of other distracting items in the background.

PHOTOGRAPHY TUTORIAL o you want to get into photography, but all you have is your smart-phone and your Instagram. Don’t worry, you can achieve a lot with very little. The key to getting the most out of your camera phone is knowing its limitations.

GAMES

5: High-key photography is achievable when light from the background (outside), is much brighter than the light falling on the subject (inside), and you expose for the subject, not the background.

FIND THE LIGHT Light is the absolute key to photography. Camera phones, unfortunately, are not the best tools for light. To compensate, you must find the best light for the situation. If you’re indoors, try to find a large window. If you’re outdoors, in broad daylight, try to find some shade, perhaps under a tree.

LEARN THE BASICS This is absolutely essential, regardless of what stage of photography you are at. This means the rule of thirds, white balance, and knowing the difference between hard and soft light. pg 22
