HouseKeeping Garett Svensen, Production Editor I have several projects in the works. Number one on the board is the comics issue coming out on Halloween. A bit more of an in-dpth article on free speech coming out in november, and a few critical gaming articles coming up. Sounds like a lot, right? All in all, everything I do will fill only two pages an issue, tops. Andy’s in a similar situation. Between school, work and The Confluence, the two of us are simply not able to cover every issue that comes up related to CNC. So I’d like to extend a ‘thank you’ to all our regular and occasional contributors.
you in every single issue we’ve put out so far. Also, a big thanks to all of the Student Union representatives who take time out of their busy lives that already divide time between school and the CNCSU. And to Stuart Jamieson, our youngest contributor: thank you so much for the comic strips. We’ve been wanting a regular comic for months now, and you were the first to rise to the call. Kudos.

Eyeball Mystery Solved: According to livescience.com, the mysterious giant blue eyeball that washed up on a Florida beach last week has been confirmed by Joan Herrera, from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation, to have come “from a swordfish.” Swordfish in the Atlantic Ocean can reach a weight up to 1,100 pounds, and it is common this time of year for fishers to catch one off the coast of South Florida.
Big Headed Male Politicians: From sciencedaily.com, a recent study by Psychology of Women Quarterly has found that male politicians from gender-equal cultures have, on average, bigger heads. The finding was discovered after examining faceism by measuring facial prominence in photographs of over 6, 500 male and female politicians from over 25 different cultures. The facial prominence was determined by measuring the length from the chin to the top of the head in the photos.

At huffingtonpost.com, for the first time ever, the U.S. Postal service has hit its $15 billion limit. According to David Partenheimer, “We need passage of comprehensive legislation as part of our business plan to return to long-term financial stability.” This means that the USPS will have to rely on revenue generated from stamps and other products in order to fund operations. Congress left Washington leaving nearly all legislation on the hold that may help USPS until after the Presidential election on 6 November 2012.
Optimus Prime in Port Hope: Featured on cnews.canoe.ca, 11 year old Maximus Darcy has constructed a 7 metre-tall Optimus Prime out of transmissions, auto parts and odd shaped door knobs. Darcy came up with the idea to build this sculpture to promote his family’s unusual crafts and antiques from around the world, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary in its current location. Darcy’s creation was completed this week.

Scary Noises Wong manages to include an essential horror element, oft neglected by the shock-scare crowd in his two books: social commentary. John Dies at the End is in many ways a meditation on the existential crisis facing youth in these uncertain days. This Book is full of Spiders examines our cultural fascination with the apocalypse and zombies, but more importantly, what they mean to us deep inside. The books are riproaring tales that hit the scary bone (JDATE more than TBIFOS), but offer a perspective on the infectious hopelessness pervading youth culture today.
David Wong (not his real name) understands these dark spaces intimately. He writes hyperkinetic tales of the supernatural, like Stephen King on speed, endearingly full of dong jokes that left me not wanting to turn out the light when I put the book down. Somewhere in the stories of meat ghosts, possessed intravenous drugs and interdimensional spiders is a heart beating fast with existential panic.
Fear of loss is at the core of the horror of the books. Loss of loved ones, loss of self, loss of sanity, loss of ability, et cetera all the way down to fears of job loss and the sudden pang of dread of lost keys or wallet. The fear is sudden and horrific, usually tailing a lighthearted moment or dong joke. Death comes easy and often, and is horrifying enough due to circumstances, but the real terror is in the passages that explore identity.
Jasmine Bhatti, Exernal Coordinator What happened to corporations that actually care if you’re satisfied or not? There was such a thing as customer appreciation, once upon a time. Have all of the big box stores forgotten who walks in their doors and actually provides them with all their funding? It seems when you call in for customer support, what you actually get is a long wait list. You hear “your call is important to us,” about a million times but it doesn’t seem to actually come across. These companies must have enough money to employ more customer service staff. When you do get through to someone, it goes from transfer to transfer. Sometimes, you get a real gem of an associate who hangs up on you. Don’t misunderstand me, sometimes you actually get to speak with someone that knows what they’re doing. However, I have found that rare.

Garett Svensen, Production Editor There’s a passage in a Charles Stross novel where the bad guys are trying to spook the protagonist with a creepy fog and spooky noises. But he isn’t having any of it: “It’s the sort of tactic that might stand a chance of working if I was a little less cynical, or if they had enough imagination to make it, oh, you know, horrifying, or something. Luckily for me they don’t seem to have grasped the difference between a Sam Raimi movie and standing by your dad’s hospital bed trying to work up the nerve to switch off the ventilator.”(The Fuller Memorandum) Horror comes less from environmental cues—fog machines and jump scares with an orchestral sting—and more from the dark, uncertain spaces within our psyche.
Is Customer Service Dead?
Companies like Telus must be making far too much money, if they don’t care what their consumers think about their product or service. Spoilers: John Dies
A call centre
Here’s my recommendation: take a stand. If you’re not satisfied, speak up. Call, and call again. Become a pest. If they don’t care, then make them care. There is always an alternate option. Bad customer service shouldn’t be accepted at all.

Looking back on this last windy sentence that I’ve just written, I can see that I’ve taken an abrupt and disturbing turn towards the cynical, which is something I told myself I simply would not do, what with my desire to not tire myself out with all the “bitchery” that I (apparently) erroneously claimed myself to be void of. And now, looking back again on this new last sentence that I just wrote, I see that I unfortunately chose to end it with a preposition. Nothing’s going right. Therefore, this review needs to come to a close. This endeavour did not turn out like I’d hoped at all, not in any way, shape, or form. Oh well, perhaps it’s best to simply end things with one of the encapsulated themes of the great novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest: “At least I tried.”

When you don’t know what to write about, it’s sometimes best to just follow your current train of thought and hope that something shows itself to be of interest. Ironically, or perhaps only coincidentally, my train of thought consists of an overwhelming thought of trains, which means that my strategy in this instance is useless, as I’m quite sure that no one wants to hear me ramble away about cabooses, steam engines, and all the boxcars in-between. Joseph Conrad once said that “even the best of writers gives himself away every three or four lines” yet this is my third line and I don’t feel that I’ve given a whole lot of myself away, other than the obvious fact that, as a writer, I am Conradically different from the esteemed author of the earlier quote, and am also not one above stealing a cool pun, much like the just aforementioned one that was first thrust onto an unsuspecting world by Vladimir Nabokov. I’ve used that Conrad quote before, many times in fact, in classrooms, barrooms, poolrooms, and the like – “Really? So often?” some of you who are queasily experiencing the misfortune of reading this piece are probably asking yourselves. My only response to such inquisitiveness is with a dreary “Probably.”
essarily free of worry and mind-taxing rumblings. Quite the contrary: for what if one runs out of something to criticize? What then? Where to turn and what to bitch at? Not that I’m prone to a great deal of bitchery anyway, as I find it awfully tiring trying to keep my finger on the rapid pulse of negative vibes, if you’ll excuse my anachronistic stab at hip dialogue. That being the case, I thought I would write about something that I actually feel buoyed by. I just have to figure out what it is that buoys me. Movies were thrown up as a possibility. Why not write a critique of a movie? Everyone’s seen at least one, I’d venture to guess. Why not write a critique of a book? was the other possibility tossed about. Yet not everyone’s read at least one of those, I’d also venture to guess. I therefore think it best to stick with movies. They seem to me to be the more universal medium in this day and age. So with that in mind, I think I’ll write – for no real rhyme but with somewhat of a reason – a critique of the 1968 needsto-be-rediscovered classic No Way to Treat a Lady.

Particularly worrisome is the increasing prevalence of what might be termed a harmful new “meme”, or what the critic Jacques Barzun would have called a “thought cliche” – the put-down comment or dismissive remark that “your problems are First World problems”. In other words, if you aren’t working 18-hour or longer shifts in a sweatshop in Bangladesh or Guangzhou, you have no right to complain about your wages, the psychological atmosphere of your workplace, or local environmental problems. To be concerned that you and your children continue to have access to clean water and an uncontaminated food supply is a sign of being a selfish citizen of a First World country. Under this line of reasoning, CUPE members at UNBC taking collective action for wage increases that at least partially reflect the rate of inflation should just fold up shop and decertify. After all, there are workers in the Third World who make only 75 cents to $1.25 per hour, and so the CUPE members are just selfishly complaining about “First World problems”. The meme “First World problems” is a very destructive one. Recently Graham Pearce, creative writing instructor at The College of New Caledonia, warned there are factions among the fashionable po-

for self-development are essential. In The Soul of Man under Socialism he writes, “A man is called selfish if he lives in a manner that seems to him most suitable for the full realization of his own personality; if, in fact, the primary aim of his life is self-development. But this is the way in which everyone should live. Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live. And unselfishness is letting other people’s lives alone, not interfering with them. Selfishness always aims at creating around it an absolute uniformity of type. Unselfishness recognizes infinite variety of type as a delightful thing, accepts it, acquiesces in it, enjoys it. It is not selfish to think for flow of happiness, not the bitter fruit oneself.

Don’t judge me by the way I look The way I dress Who I seem to be The hijab I wear doesn’t symbolize me, As a terrorist Or a perfect person My hijab symbolizes that I choose to be Respected . Unlike other women Who seem to be dejected By the men that gawk at their body With their painted on clothes and See through panty hoes I choose to be liberated Not told what I should wear Or whom I should be If you tell me how to dress And try to impress the opposite sex You must be outta your mind

That just ain’t me I refuse to dress In a mini-skirt Short shirt Only to be hurt By men who’ll treat me like dirt With their perverted minds Occupied by filthy intentions The devil whispers to them With his immoral convention People don’t you see My hijab liberates me Although you may think All it does is enslave me But you are wrong In the way you think The ones without it Are the ones enslaved Shackled by images of perfection Flogged by the whip of unwanted affection Forced to bare skin and be seen as equivalent When really all they are is ambivalent
They wish to be free and choose their own way Yet they have a need to bare skin And to get all the attention They are oppressed by the world With its sick minded invention

Once upon a time there was a young ingredient named 1/2 Cup of Flour. He was gleefully mixing in the salty forest when he met Butter and Lard, two run-away mixtures from the cracked Queen Eggyolk.
I choose to be beautiful Inside not just out I want men to see the beauty of my mind And see what I’m all about How I love my religion How I’m treated like a queen This hijab symbolizes The purity that is unseen
1/2 Cup of Flour could see that Butter and Lard were trying to hold together so he reached into his mixing bowl and grabbed his kitchen whipper and beat them both. Butter and Lard were thankful for 1/2 Cup of Flour’s beating, so they told 1/2 Cup of Flour a very entertaining story about Queen Eggyolk’s daughter Vanilla. How her mother, the cracked Queen Eggyolk, kept her locked away in a refrigerator protected by a 4-inch cookie cutter, because Vanilla was so perfumy.
I pity women who are used as Game, Toys and sex machines They know not of the shield That protects me But don’t be fooled by My hijab For it doesn’t symbolize my Perfection Its a reminder of who I strive to be and It’s a mere reflection Of those women of Islam Who were and are strong Fighting for their rights and Fighting to belong I wish to be even half of What they were but I have my days Good and bad I have done or do things I wish I didn’t have But everyday I strive To fight the demons within me And everyday God willing I come closer to be A better person inside and out A better example A better leader Someone much more devout.
1/2 Cup of Flour stirred bristly. He vowed to Butter and Lard, the two run-away mixtures, that he would save the perfumy Vanilla. He would defeat the 4-inch cookie cutter on a lightly floured surface, and extract Vanilla from her evil mother, the cracked Queen Eggyolk, and blend her. Then, all of a sudden, there was a preheated oven and Butter and Lard, the young ingredients, began to rise and bubble. Meanwhile, 1/2 Cup of Flour fell into the 4-inch cookie cutter and turned into a golden pastry. Cracked Queen Eggyolk whisked out from behind a mixing bowl and had 1/2 Cup of Flour, now a golden pastry, quietly sent off to a rack to let cool and was never to be heard from again. In the far off remoteness you could hear a mmmmmhhhmm. ~The End~

day, make it a habit. Even if it’s raining, snowing, or you don’t feel very good. Even if you’re sick, walking is much healthier than staying in bed.
We know from a vast library of research that physical exercise prevents heart disease, lowers high blood pressure, reduces LDL cholesterol, improves digestion, speeds food transit through your large intestine, oxygenates internal organs, improves joint flexibility, enhances mental function, prevents cancer, prevents diabetes, enhances bone density, prevents osteoporosis, reverses depression and has many other beneficial effects. In fact, physical exercise is absolutely essential for being healthy, and without it, you’ll never be truly happy, even if you follow other health strategies mentioned in this article.
It shouldn’t be hard to find an extra five minutes in your busy schedule, either. People spend more than 5 minutes waiting in line at the McDonalds drivethrough. You can waste a whole hour waiting on a pharmacist to fill a prescription for dangerous prescription drugs. Why not invest just 5 minutes for your own good health?
Over time, this 5 minute habit will become something you actually enjoy and look forward to. At that point, you might explore the possibility of expanding it to 10 minutes, 20 minutes or even longer (whatever you’re comfortable with). It’s up to you: make it a pleasure, not a chore. And recognize that it can be selfrewarding to the point where you actually WANT to exercise much longer than 5-10 minutes. But don’t force yourself to get there. Let it come naturally.

What can you do for 5-10 minutes a day that gets your heart pumping? Just about anything: walking, jumping rope, swimming, cycling, dancing, climbing stairs, roller blading, aerobics, fast-paced Pilates, and so on. There are even things you can do if you can’t use your legs, or if you’re obese or suffering from joint pain. A good doctor or physical therapist can help a lot here, so be sure to work with a qualified health professional to design a physical exercise program that works for you. You may also consider joining a local gym and signing up with their training coaches. These people can offer you a wealth of information on what really works for weight loss, strength improvement and enhanced fitness. Or, if you don’t want to go to a gym, hire a personal trainer, buy some books, or just figure it out for yourself. This isn’t rocket science; just get your heart pumping by moving your body. By the way, the CNC gym is available and there are a couple of fitness classes offered in the gymnasium. Bite-sized exercise
It’s not difficult to find something to do; what’s difficult for most people is actually DOING IT. That’s why I want you to start at 5-10 minutes a day (if you’re not already exercising more than that). It’s something that’s doable, even if you’ve been a couch potato for 10 years. Heck, just walking across a large parking lot takes a couple of minutes. Do that twice and you have 5 minutes of walking. I
