UW Bookstore to scrap

Waterloo students have lowest default rate in L~rovince

ExpressBooks discount

Elise Hug SPECIAL TO IMPRINT

At UW's most recent Senate meeting, vice-president academic Amit Chakma used data regarding U W s low student debt dcfault rates to argue that UW does not have a significant accessibility problem. Ryan Stammers, vice-president education for the Federation of Students, argued there are other reasons for OSAl-' default rates being lower at U\V than elsewhere. According to OSAP, the default rate for OSAP loans for studcnts who attend U\Y stands at 3.5 prr ccnt, the lowest rate of an! untvcrsity in the province, and much lower than the Ontario-wide default rate of 7.08 per cent for the year 2000. Stammers noted that UW's default rate may he misleading. "'She studcntpopulationat U\Y:has roughly a h0:40 co-op split." Stammers indicated that co-op students are treated differently by OSAP. Co-op students have, in the past, not been rlig~blefor significant amounts of OSAP because of thcir wnrk term earrungs and their four month study periods. ~Iccordingto Stammcrs, "Because of the volumc of co-op studcnts at the University of Waterloo, our students' low dehult rates may reflect the fact that

fewer students at UW are eligible for OSAP in the first place, and those that are receiving loans are receiving smaller loans [than at schools without co-op programs]." Stammers has other concerns about the student assistance program. "The OSAP system is premised on the idea of independent or dependent students,where a student's financial dependency on their parents is viewed as an on-off switch." OSAP expects parents to make financial contributions totheir child's education until the student has been out of high school for five years. "But," said Stammers, "Statistics Canada data is showing that the majority of parents arc not saving for their children's education." Statistics Canada data has shown that 40.7 per cent of pdrents in all Income categories ha\:e saved for their childrcn's post-secondary education, while 87.1 per cent of all parents hope ~hcirchildren will continue to post-secondary education. Only 18.7 per cent of parents with household incomes less than $30,000 have managed to sarreat all for thejr children's education, whilc 79.8 per ccm of them hope their chlldrcn will continue to post-secondary rducation. ilccording to a study preparcd for the Lhllennium Scholarship Fund by Ekos Research, "one third of stu-

dents 22 years and under get no financial support from parents." After a student has been out of high school for five years, her parents are no longer expected to contrihute.to her educational costs at all, regardless of their financial situation. AlexUsher,directorofresearch for thehfillennium Scholarship Fund, previously commented on this problem. "Students over the age of 22 can apply for aid without reporting parental income and end up with more money than they need." Another problem with the financial aid system, according to Stammers, is that "the OSAP sysrcmis not transparent to students and theirparents. Parents and students don't linow how much money ')SAP expects them to contribute. "Students often tell me they don't know how much OSAP they arc getting. 'l'hcy tell me, '1.ast term I got X amount, and this term I g o r y , hut I feel like I'm in the same situation.' Students don't linow where the difference is coming from." According to Stammers, "Institutions with academic programs that chargc tu~tionfees ahore the rekwlated tuition fee cap are now financially resporlsihle for student financial aid." See OSAP, page 6

Group to ease Iraqi suffering Althetic reputations threatened by poor conduct Stephen Lockwood and Gloria lchim SPECIAL TO IMPRINT

More than 1.5 million people dead, over 650,000 of them children. A 100 per cent increase in childhood leukemia. A severe shortage of food, medicine and school supplies. This is the reality that is faced by the people of Iraq due to the sanctidns placed on them by the UN. On August 6, 1990, the United Nations Security Councilpassedresolution 661 in response to Iraq's invasion of neighbouring Kuwait, subjecting Iraq to one of the most comprehensive economic blockades the world has ever seen. Thts has been coupled with the massive destruction of infrastructure and ecological damage caused by the Gulf War. According to UNICEF, over 650,000 children that have died, representing a 250 per cent increase from 1990 levels in the under-five mortality rate. Incidents of childhood leukemia in Southern Iraq rose over 100 per cent between 1990 and 1999. Even taking this extreme increase in leukemia into account, the leading cause of children dying in Iraq remainsthe lack of clean water. Advocates of the sanctions claim that it is justifiable to maintain them in hopes of instigating a rebellion against the current government. However, thls approach has yet to yield any results. The sanctions are responsible for severelycrippling the Iraqi economy. With virtually no trade, the Iraqi currency has lost most of its value and, due to the shortages caused by the blockade, prices of nearly all basic necessities have risen. Many political analysts argue that this policy actually helped consolidate the Iraqi

government's power, due in part to the civllian population's increasing dependency on the government. It was in this context that in January of 2002, Project Iraq, a WPIRG action group, was formed with one concrete goal: humanitarian aid for the people of Iraq. Currently, there are only a handful of groups that actually deliver any sizeable quantity of food and medical supplies to Iraq. Through a comprehensive fundraising plan, this group intends to raise $500,000 in food, medlcal and school supplies. Their plan puts them in contact with ambassadors, pharmaceutical companies, politicians, community activists, schools, and many others. Project Iraq decided on this plan because the group members have been moved by the plight of the Iraqi people. Those in Canada know that they have access to great resources and Project Iraqwill therefore do all that it can to make the best possible use of these resources to achieve its goal of humanitarian aid. Project Iraq brings together students and communitv members. In order to carry out this wprk they require support from the community. Project Iraq's &st major event will be a fundraising dinner on March 24,2002 at 6 p.m. It wdl take place in rooms 2034 and 2066 of the math and computer building at UW and will feature films and speakers about the situation in Iraq. Project Iraq can be reached at project~iraq@hotmail.comor at WPIRG. The group meets every Tuesday at 6 p.m. at WPIRG, located at the University of Waterloo Student Life Centre, room 2139.

READY AND WllllN6 Athletics director Judy hlcRae must cringe whenever she hnds out some of the school's athletes are in hot water. This might be the case this week when she reads that Warrior football players were allegedly involved in a shoving match last Saturday at the Bomber. This isn't the first time that our football players have caused a ruckus off the field. In October 2000, three Warrior football players caused $10,000 in damage on campus after brealung hghts, windows and parking arms. The gents had to pay for the damage and escaped without charge. It's not fair to just illuminate these two instances that involved football players in particular. I'm sure there have been incidents involvmg other sports teams. Hazing problems come to mind. But it's interesting how a group of people can be unfairly labeled for the actions of a few members. For example, when I first learned about the problems at the

Bomber on Monday, I heard it was the "football team" that was involved in a brawl. Right away, this marks the football team - the entire team - as thugs. This of course, isn't reasonable, but it's an example of the h d of name people get, albeit unfairly, when just a few people think they're above sensibility. Situations like these also make us wonder in what situation athletes step out of the marker of "UW athlete" and become just a regular UW kid. It's an old sports paradox that frequently poses questions, such as does Jose Canseco step out of his marker as "professional baseball playet" at times when he gets in a bar fight? Or even in our own political system, when do our Feds executives step out of the marker of "Feds exec" and just become a Waterloo resident? Do UW athletes represent their sports for the entire school year, or just when their sport is in season? It's difficult not to associate students with their sports affiliations. We all become familiar with names like Bradley, Walsh, Leslie, and recently Devenny, Carrington and Ellis, and know that they are football, field hockey, basketball and track and field stars. So when names pop up in news, they are

immediately linked to their teams. People are intelligent enough to know that the actions of some people don't speak for the group. But when that group is linked to multiple pieces of bad news, we wonder, "what is with that team?" In the last four months working with athletes, coaches and sports adrnitllstrators for Imp& Sports, I can honestly say that I've been impressed by the openness and friendliness of our sporting stakeholders. That's why now I'm begmning to cringe when I see a sports team linked to bad news. But let's be honest here: athletes must think about their associations before acting ridiculously. That doesn't mean you have to stop getting drunk at the Bomber or quit partying as a team. Just be aware of your actions and the larger body you represent (that being UW Athletics) before breaking windows or slapping someone's ass In most cases it just means keeping a lower profile. If you plan on starting problems before you go out, remove your UW athletics jackets or shirts that proudly label you as a Warrior footballer, basketball player, curler or whatever. Athletics wdl thank you for it.

Environmental commissioners dumped Becky Versteeg SPECIAL TO IMPRINT

On March 12, 2002, Kirk Schmidt and Patrick Quealeywere terminated from their positions as the Feds environmentalcommissioners for their refusal to work with the University of Waterloo SustainabilityProject. This refusal resulted in the letter the commissioners received from Feds,presidnetYaacovIland and VP SIBrendaBeattyonMarch 12,which indicatedthattheirpositionshad been terminated.The letter thanked them for their work, but explained that workingwiththesustainabilityproject is a requirement of the position of environmental commissioner. When the sustainability project

was proposed this past summer, the Feds offered thex support under the condition that the project be joined with the environment commission. When Schmidt and Quealey took on the positions as environmental commissioners in the fall, they maintainedtheconnectionwiththeproject for the first part of the term. The two groups worked together on projects such as I S 0 14001 certification, but for the most part acted separately. In January, Schmidt and Quealy decided to release the project from the commission. They cited their own disagreements and made accusations against the project including "misrepresentation of students by the project, poor management ethic, poor communication with superi-

ors, andinsufficient researchprior ta implementation." Brenda Beatty spoke with the commissioners regarding their decision to terminate the k k to the project. She reminded them of the practicalunderstandmgthathadbeen reached with regards to the h k between the environmental commission and the sustainability project. Schmidt and Quealey responded that they could not be commissioners if they were required to maintain links to the sustainabilityproject.They were subsequently fired. Schmidt and Quealey feel that they were misrepresented, misinformedandmisunderstood. "It'snot over, I can assure you of that" commented Quealey. -

Architecture receives provincial funding Geoff Eby IMPRINT STAFF

Provincial SuperBuild fundmg for the school of architecture's relocation was announced from within its future home -the Tiger Brand factory in downtown Cambridge -on March 7. The bddmg, located between the Grand River and Queen's Square, was in the process of being converted into loft condominiums when that project was abandoned around the time the school of architecture droppedits plan to construct a new building in the same area. The fundmg forthe $27.2-&on project is to be shared by four part-

ners - a consortium of local business leaders ($12.7 million); the city of Cambridge ($6.25 million); SuperBuild ($4.1 millton); and Industry Canada ($4.1 million). The federal funding from Industry Canada has not yet been confirmed. UW president David Johnston mentioned a "poetic justice" to the announcement of Cambridge as the university's destination for expansion ''When the university of Waterloo was founded in 1957, the people of south Waterloo pegion] had obtained a grant for a university ... the men ofnorth Waterloo shortly thereafter obtained a grant ... in the discussions that took place,it seemed at

that time to make sense to locate it in north Waterloo, and the people of southWaterlooverygradouslytransferred their grant so the university of Waterloo could proceed at the present campus. Today, I think that we are seeing some poetic justice by coming back to south Waterloo." Whde some students have expressed concerns about the &stance of the new school from UWs campus, others have recognized the importance of increasing the school's space: "Basically, h s is a life-saver for our school," said architecture student Farid Noufaily.

UniversityapplicationsfromOntario secondary schools are up across the province by 15.8per cent. However, therehasbeenanincreaseofonly 7.6 per cent in first choice applications, The difference is accounted for by the flexibility students now have to apply to more than three institutions. T o date there are 47,080 more applications but only 9,461 more people applying for admission to Ontario universities. Non-Ontario applications have increased by 9,373 with an accompanymg increase of 3,213 individual applicants.

"I've applied to eight and UW is my second choice U-of T is my first choice. I'm not sure which is actually my first choice but I had to put one first I'm keepingmy options open." The faculty of arts has received the biggest increase in applications this year at 29.5 per cent, followed by science at 28 per cent, health science

An oft-forgotten,but important part of the Federation of Students is the Board of Duectors. With financial and legal responsibility for the corporation, it is the board that makes long-term financial and business decisions. Lack ofdirection and lack of attention from executive has, in past years, contributed to stagnation of the board and failure to operate most effectively. The board has nine voting members -four executive, and five student councillors - elected to the board at the General Meeting. The corporation has made a significant financial turnaround in recent years. During the mid-'90s, it was losing some $150,000 annually. The budgets for the last two years were slightly better than break-even, after setting aside four per cent of student fees (about $30,000) forlongterm investment. Credit for this improvementmust

be'at least partially attributed to the past boards. The current structure of the board of directors works well, but could be improved. The remainder of thls article describes some problems with the board's existing structure and possible changes. All the members of the board are members of student's council. In the perspective of many, the board is a subset of and secondaly to students' council. In fact, from alegal perspective, students council is just an advisory board with little 6r no power, whereas the board is responsible for all decisions. I suggest that at least two of the non-executivepositions on the board be opened to all students, not just councillors. There is little connection between the work of a councillor and a director. Students who would make excellent directors may not be interested in the politics of students' council. Opening the seats tonon-councillors also serves to give the board a separate identity. The bylaws currently call for the retirement of the entire board each year on Apnl 30. It is possible, as happened with this year's board of directors, that no incoming member had previously sat on the board. The new board must then f d a r i z e itself with the corporation before get-

ting down to business. But a corpo ration is a going concern, so there': no need for the whole board to retin at one time. In fact, most corpora tions stagger the retirement of thei directors to minimize the impact or governance. It would be more effective tc stagger the retirement of hectors The easiest way to accomplish tht! would be to elect three directors a the annual general meeting in Octo ber to take office in November. One final concern with the boarc of directors is its composition. A1 the voting members are students (0: just-graduated students). The o n l ~ other official member is the genera manager. Though well-intentioned most students don't have 20 or 3( years experience in business. The creation of advisory positions on the board for qualifiec businesspersons - lawyers and accountants, for example - wodc allow the board to have regular advice from more experienced individuals while still being able to dtrec a student-run corporation in its owr unique way.

Downtown Kitchener on the upswing? Cory Bluhm

SPECIAL TO IMPRINT Many UW students have a perception that downtown Kitchener is a dirty, run-down place, fded with freaks, crazies and lots ofpurple hair. Most students share the opinion that uptown Waterloo is the preferred location for shoppmg,entertainment and alcohohc consumption, as opposed to downtown Kitchener. Downtown Kitchener went through a decade of deche, pnmarily due to the centralization of social services and the existence of a few sketchy busmesses. However, in order to alter thts image, the c~tyof Kitchener has undergone an extensive process to overhaul the entire downtown core, to restate its claim as a desirable place to live. In late Februaly, hundreds of people gathered in the luxurious Walper Terrace Hotel to "celebrate the success" of downtown Kitchener's urban evolution. Although the evolution process is far from complete, the city took the time to recognize the accomplishments and efforts that have been made to this point. The top award went to Theatre & Company, which recently opened theKing StreetTheatre Centre, a brand new 383-seat flexibleperformance space, complete with teachmg and rehearsal facilities. The Theatre Centre is now a crown jewel where live performances in many disciplines occur. Also receiving recogrution was the Waterloo Regon Children's Museum, a 50,000-square-foot world-class facilitv that will not onlv educate and entertain thousandseach year, but will become a cornerstone of our community. These are just two of the projects that contributed

COMMUNITY EDITORIAL

When I decided to join my local environmental awareness group, my cholceu-as not met wjth support and enthusiasm, but instead harassment from my roommates. I was sarcastically referred to as "Captain Enviro" whenever I reminded them to recycle -which usually had to be done every week. They would ask me if it was going to be the pandas or tigers that I'd be saving that week. One day, when I came home from the mall with a newly purchased suede jacket, they snorted and said, "Some environmentalist you are .. . if your committee only knew! They'd kick your ass out in a second!" My roommates do not amuse me. Many people do not realize that it is possible to drivc a car, occasionally use styrofoam and aerosol hairspray, and still care about the environment. They figure you'rc cithcr a tree hugger or a baby seal killer. I'd like to i n m duce myself as the exception. I'm not active enough to clam the title of superhcro protector of the harth, but acme enough that I t~ tomakeconsc~ousdecisions about the way I hve. I do what I can. 1 couldn't tell you how many environmental lectures I've been to where the speaker would ask the audience how many of them wanted i o help save the environment? Usually everyone puts up a hand. Then, the speaker would ask how many of thcm w o ~ d dbe willing to give up thcir car to do this? At this point, everyone would scluirm in his or hcr seat, hands down in shame. The speaker might as well ask us to give up an arm or a leg. You may not be able to sacrifice such a necessity, but that's no reason to feel like ;here's nothing you can do. We've all bcen told, "If evrryone did their small part, it would make a big difference." Well, it's true. As for my unappreciative room-

mates, it's that type of arr~tudcthat prcvents rhc average person from taking any environmental initiative. Thcy associatc activism with Grcenpcacc attacks u n oil rigs vr psotesting animal testing at Parliament Hill. Whcn you'rc asked to imagine an environmentalist, what do you conjure up? 12 hemp-wearing, Ani DiFranco-lisrcning, dreads-bearing, protesting ucgan? 'I'hat's not mc. That's not anyonc in my environmental group. Such a stereotype creates a false impression of environmentalists as a hostile, closed-off group of individuals. You'rc cithcr in or you're out ancl there's no part marks for mediocre effort. I'm trying to break that stereotype. I believe Canada needs the Species at Risk Act mobilized. I hate smog. I hatc sccing garbage o n the sides of roads. I would like to see the crcation of more green space on campus. I use non-toxic household cleaners And yet, I mill continue to drive my car and will probably use styrofoam and aerosol hairspray again. But at least I am aw-are of what's good and bad, and this knowledge will drive me to makc changes in my life.

REMEMBER EARTH CLEARLY As tuition dereplation looms ancl believe me, it's closer than you think - and costs continue to climb, universities and student groups \viU have to find crcativc ways to fill their funding requirements. With all the debate ovrr who should pay, we should consider a couple of alternatives. As much as 1respect Brcnnan Vogcl's reccnt call for sanctity in his washroom space, I hare to disagree with him on corporate advertising in the SLC. Corporate funding in the form of advertising revenue, not sponsorship, is an escekmt may to support our programs. Vogel argued that we arc influenced by these companies' amazing how corporate agendas that has become a four-letter word these days - becoming hrainwashed automatons, unablc to formulate our own desires, only those of our masters. How, then, docs Vogcl csplain my lack of desire for a new SUV?

Doi~glasStebila, author of Irnprit~t's series on student government (and a recently elected student senator) will be mccting with Chris DiLullo, Fcds TiP admin and finance-elect, to hear his plans for the failing restaurant. In a pre-election interview, DiLullo told Imprint that he planned to close Ground Zero's doors, rc-opcningwith sotncthing "along the same lines as what's available at St. Cinnamon's." DiLullo's o n the right track, but what the Feds really need here is a cash cow. Let's be honcst with ourselves, several of the businesses have issues; the Bomber is desperatcly in need of renovations, Fcd Hall is only busy one day out of the whole week, Feds programming is a shadow- of its former self, and the Used Bookstore still includes thousands of dollars of undistributed cheques as part of its revenue.

Here's my idea: Ground Zcro becon~esa full-service Tim JIorton's. Not some watered down, call-ahead-to-orcier-a dozctidonuts, daytimc hours only operation. I'm talking about 21hours of soup, sandwiches and all manners of baked goods. In order to buy a hanchise, the Feds would only need about $178,000 in liquid assets, and thcy could finance the rest (about $250,000).Add a walk-up window, and that place would be bus) cvcry day of the year. The Feds would make money hand over fist. After paying off their financed investment, they could drop the Feds fec, serving students through cvcr-climbing coffee sales. (On that note, check out Melanie Stuparyk's i n v e s t i p tion into the nature of coffee on page 14.) Should the Feds try to run a profitable business? Sure they should; senring students requires cash, and thcrc arc lots of worthwile money-losers for a successful Tim's to subsidize. 'l'he naysayers shout that Food Services would ncvcr girc up thcir franchise in D.C. I say the Feds have done plenty for UW admin, and it's time to call In a favour. I suggest free double-doubles all around as a negotiaring tactic.

Stop ignoring raclsrn

A changing self-identitv

Being blind to colour doesn't helo anvone L

IN YOUR INTEREST In hlarch 21, 1960, 69 black Semonstrators were massacred and 180 were mounded by armed South Ifncan pul~ceduring a peaceful xutcst apinct apartheid. More -han 40 years later, communitiei lround the world are still strug;ling against racism, inclucling ::anada. Masclb 21 has been deemed the International Day to End Racism by the Unltcci Nations. Every !ear across Canada, high schools, NGOs, universities and even the fedcral government (through Heritage Canada) ernbark on awareness campaigns and events to urge citizens to "Stop Racism!" In light of incidences that have occurred since September 11 and the racism that has come to the surface since then, a day such as this is more poignmt than ever. ;\larch 21 1s probably one of the o d ~da)-s - that the word racism is not a taboo. I am in awe of how so man!- peoplc a ~ o i dusing the word. They'll use tcrmc like racial

J

prejudice, discrimination, ~ntolcrancc of differences, hut it's amazing hu\v so many people steer clrar of thar six-letter word. It 1s pn~l,aldyhecnuse, histor-;c;tll!, many horrific events were jusrified through racism, such as slabery. Thus, today that r-word is such a dirty word. \Y'cll you know &at? If me don't name it, lee am't c\ er gmng to get rid oi it, lxcause although racism was the cause of many atrocities in the past, it still exists today, althouki not so blatantl\.. I am a part of a camp of people who call themselves ;inti-raasts. \Ye recognize that racism esists withm our society on many levels, overtl~-and covertly. Overt ways are easy tu ~dentify racial slurs, white supremacist neo-Nazis, ctc. It's the covert ways that arc the and are also the ones hard ones that get over looked so often. If you are not anti-racist, then you arc racist - there's no such thing as being non-racist. The reason is that racism exists on every level in our society (even in our university). So to ignore it (i.e, to be non-racist) is to help perpetuate it. What 1 call on pcople to do is to not only speak out against racism, hut to look w~thinourselves to see how one has aided in the rxistcncc of rsicistn and whitc primlege. Bec:lusc racism isn't ahout feeling gu~lt!, but acting and changing the -

-

way it so casil) plays irself out. So u,sc the word dc~n'tshy awn! from it. Uecaiuse the phetlomenon crf racism hasn't dicappearcd. If !v)u ignore it, it u m ' t go away. ,\nd what is LIP with the notion of colour-blindness - the idea that "when I look at people, I clon't see colour." 1.et me tell you folks, as a person of colour, 1 am highly offended by that, ;md 1'11 tell ~ O L I why. This goec along the same line o f ignoring thc problen-~.By stating that you arc colriur-hlind, you are rcallj- no bcttcr than one who uses racial slurs. You are deny~ngthe fact that racism d w s exist, and thar I and an) other person of colow get tt-eatcd differently than a white pel-son. So even if you don't hold racist attitudcs or notions, doesn't mean that thcy dm't cxist in reality. By denying the fact that we are treated differently in society, that we are (unfortunately) not treated equally, is part and parccl to the way that racism continues to exist. So please see my colour, because I d o every time 1 look in tlic mirror. O n hlarch 21, I hope we all can stop, think and recognize the reality of racism in today's society. I also hope that ure a11 continue this struggle nf fighting ag:linst raciini the other 364 days of the year. -

All of these transforma tions comc about as a I-esultof a overall change - the transition from a straight seKidcntity to a gay self-identity. Physical appearance is thc most noticcable evidence of a changing self identity. A person who comes out consciously or unconsciously will start to look gay. This can come in many forms. The most deliberate attempt tu look gap is to wear gay symbols, most commonly rainbow-coloured jewellery. In doing so, the in&vldual is clearly labelling themselves as gal- to other gay peoplc.

These attitudcs may reflect differing beliefs about sesuality, religion and relationships. In short, a complete change in identity can accompany the coming out event. The changc is so marked because closeted peoplc tend to over-identify with the dominant, straight culture and delibemtely avoid gay culture. Aftcr coming out, newly outed people tend to immerse themselves in gay culture, completely ignoring straight culture.

Coffee: heaven-sent or the Devil's drink? 'Coffee should be black as hell, strong as death and sweet as love." - Twhirb maxim flelanie Stuparyk JPRINT STAFF

'here's no reason to d~mimshcoffee ~y s n m g it is anything less than an bsolute necessity tormost students, specially those here at Impmt. Tim lorton'c 1s a cultural icon and Uilham's Coffee Pub is busier than he Bomber on Saturday nights :offee has been a comfort, an m u ,ator, and a cure for whatever ads ou for hundreds of years

The birth of the bean The coffee bean melf 1s found nside the pit of a small red cherry hat grows o n the coffea shrub. fl~thineach cherry is two seeds, called >ems,and apprommately4,OOObeans

An average cup of coffee contains 80 t o 150 milligrams of caffeine. Caffeine can increase the speed of rapid information processing by 10 per cent. There are more than one thousand chemicals in coffee; of these only 26 have been tested and half were found to cause cancer In rats. The best way t o keep coffee fresh is to refrigerate it in a sealed, opaque container. Cappuccino got its name from the fact that its colour ressembled the clothing of Capuc~n monks. Tips started at coffeehouses where owners put out boxes that said "To Insure Promptness" for customers t o drop coins in for good service. Indonesian coffee is left t o be eaten off the bush by wild carnivorous cats and is then taken from the animal's droppings. Having fermented in its bowels, the beans are a delicacy costing around $300 per pound.

can be harvested from one tree. Those beans are dried, roasted and then ground to brew a cup of coffee. Native to Ethiopia, coffee was first caten around 875 RC when the raw beans were crushed up into balls with animal fat to give warriors a quick shot of energy during battle; the caffeine was thought to make them more savage. It was not made into a beverage until 1000 BC. Each religion has its own myth about how coffer was discovered. Two of the most popular myths are that the Angel Gabriel stumbled upon it, and the Islamic story of an Ehopiangoat-hcrd whose goats ate the cherries, prompting him to try them himself. A monk noticed their effect on h m and thought that boiling the cherries for their juices would make an excellent drink; its populaity spread from there. Coffee tnaiie its way from Africa to Europe in the early 1600s by way of Venetian traders and spread to other continents with the help of colonists. When it arrived in Europe, doctors promoted it heavily as a cure for stomach ailments and digestive troubles, still a common belief today in countries such as Italy where espresso is served at the end of most me&. It was also seen as a solution to drunkenness, opium addiction and was thought to have the ability to ward off the plague.

Coffee terminology There are two general types of coffee beans, arabica and robusta, which yield hvo verydifferent beans. Arabica bcans, used mostly for specialty coffees, have a distinct aroma, and are mild and fruity. Robusta, used in lower-quality coffees, is very strong and bitter. The dffercnt combinations of the hvo beans in varying quantities allow coffee producers to make an slew of hfferent kinds and brands.

Coffee rouses the masses Sitting around and musing in coffee shops did not start with the beatnik generation. Oneof themost noteworthy thngs about coffee is that it has always been associatedwithmass uprisings and revolutions. When coffeehouses first opened in the 17th century, they were more popular than tavcrns with men corning to drink t h e dark brew. Coffeehouses allowed for the intermingling of classes, and gave people a place to socialize without being

intoxicated by alcohol, leading to indepth dmussions of politics. Coffee historian William H. Ukers said, "Where it has been introduced, it has spelled revolution. It has been the world's most radical drink in that its function has always been to make people think. And when the people began to think, they became dangerous to tyrants, and to foes of hberty of thought and action." Aftcr coffee's rapid rlse to fame, it fell quickly into disrepute accused of being "an invention of Satan" with the potential to invoke savagery and riotous behaviour. As with alcohol, coffee was banned and a prohibition was put in place. The prohibition was lifted just as quickly when government officials saw that the ban was causing more of an uprising among the people than the coffee itself. Women in the 17th century also protested agamst coffee Demed entrance into coffeehouses. the women complained that their husbands were lured away from the home too much, leavingthema1one.They also thought that drinldng coffee in excess left their husbands without the ability or desire for sexual activity

Colonialism and cultivation The coffec trade has a long history of slavery, oppression and exploitation. From the beginning, colonialists were enslaving natives in South America, Portugal and the West Indies for cultivation of the coffee plant. They are responsible for coffee's spread to the tropics for cultivation, and its eventual introducuon to North America by way of colonial settlers. Equalll- exploited were the rainforests to make room for huge coffee p1antations.Accordin to The Cuffk Book:Anato~yofan Indtcstyj?or*l n-op tu the last drop, in 1869, 176,000 acres ofrainforests hadbeen cleared, a practice still done today to makc room for the cultivation of crops and the rasing of cattle. The coffee industry today is not much better than it was when it first started. Although slavery is now illegal, in some countries workers on coffee farms are paid obscenely low wages to work in the h o t sun handpicking the cherries. Others, on larger plantations where machinery is used to help cultivate and harvest, are constantly exposed to pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides containing dangerous chemicals. In terms of the amount of pesticides used per acre of crops, coffee

comes third behind cotton and tobacco with D D T and benzine hexachloride topping the list of chemicals, both illegal to use in North America because of health and environmental hazards. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration research shows that these chemicals are not present in the roasted bean exported for North American consumptjon, leaving the effects of the hazardous chemicals with the land and the people who work it. In the early 1990s, the poisonous insecticide Endosulfan, used on coffee crops in Colombia, was responsiblc for the poisoning of over 200 people.

You pay for what you get T h e cost of environmental cleanup and medical attention for farm workers is not included in the price North Americans pay for a cup of coffee; the price is paid by the locals in the form of taxes. What is included in the cost of a cup of coffee is: transport, farm labour, grower's share, the value added by the exporting country, and the majority of the cost coming from the roasting, grinding and packaging process done in the country that imports the beans.

Coffee, the life of the party? Caffeine, the main addictive and energy inducing component in coffee, starts to take effect 30-60 minutes after ingestion. A mood-altering drug, caffeine has been proven to

reduce irritability and improvc social skills, memory, motivation and concentration. O n the downside, it can cause sleeplessness, nervousness and shakiness in people whose bodies do not respond well to it. As with any other drug, when the body gets used to having caffeine in large doses and then has to go without it, it goes into withdrawal. Side effects of quitting coffee cold turkey caninclude: mood swings,headaches, fatigue or drowsiness, and cramps. These effects usually last no more than a day or two. Caffeine should be given up sloudy by reducing the number of cups of coffee per day, or diluting the full strength coffee with a decaffcinated version. A study by Dr. Ichiro I<awach and a team of researchers at Haward University revealed that coffee can be more than just a quick picli-meup. 'Women who drank more than two to three cups of coffee a day were at about one-third the risk of suicide over the 10-year period compared to women who never drank coffee," said I<awacht. Double the amount of suicides were found in non-coffee drinkers. Although caffeine has no serious long-term effects, medical studies have shown that hemy intake results in decreased bone density because caffeine sucks the calcium out of bones. Studies have shown drinking more than threc cups of coffee a day may also affect fertility and increase pregnantwomen's risk of early delivery.

Mark A. Schaan discusses the political and environmental consequences of grocery shopping, aslung:

What does milk monev really buy? Mark A. Schaan IMPRINT STAFF

Food. It's something we all need, something that we almost all have to buy (consideringthe difficultyofselfsufficiency within the student lifestyle) and something that is part of our normal consumer experience. Yet, what are the consequences of the choices we make in our food, and how is our consumption manipulated or coerced by the way supcrmarkets opcrate? O n a completely different note from Imprids recent evaluation of grocery shoppmg, Melanie Stuparyk and I set out to find out about the economic, social and political consequences of our food choices. "We might talk to you guys like you're kids, but you can handle it." These were some of the first words from our tour guides, Ryan Weston and AyalDinner, nvovolunteers with thc Waterloo Public Interest Research Group who tra&tionally do tours for elementary school children to get them thnking about grocery store shopping. While not patronising or simple, the tour was certainly a new view of our conventional notions of grocery shopping and a reeducation on issues that seem fairly simple when hunting for the cheapest brand of macaroni and cheese. Pacing down the aisles of Hollywood Zehrs, the first thing we discussed was the organizational nature of the grocery store itself. "The first thing is that almost every grocery store has just one entrance and you're sort of directed in a certain way," noted Weston, highlighting that the grocery store automatically frames the order in which you will select your food. The choice is intentional. "Most things that people need are at the far end of the store so you wander through everything to gct there" and the "things like vegetables are

Shopping Alternatives Shop local markets and farmer's markets Buyat a Co-op, it gives you the ability to choose what goes on the shelves. Boycott, don't buy foods that are produced with little regard for workers, the animals or the environment

put at the beginning bccause they nccd to move out vegetables as fast as they can." Dinner commented o n the more recent phenomenon of vertical integration. In a perfectly clear example of "how the store has tried to make ltsclfmore than just agrocery store," we came through the entrance of Hollywood Zehrs, passing by the new photocopy and print shop to peruse the fine selection of patio furniture and stroll past the coffee shop. Thegrocery store has &verged from the corner store ideal. This is partially a function of the fact that several corporations own so many facets of the consumption, distribution and production of so many products- most ofwhich end up in their stores More conscious than ever of the product placement in the store, we trudged off to the produce section. Here we found peppers, avocadoes and everything else under the sun, hailing from such foreign locales as IIolland, Spain and Mexico. What the geographical survey of the vegetables highlights is the significant distance required to meet our g r o w ing diversity of needs. That distance comes with a cost. "What kind of consequences do we have from lots of things being transported from far away places?" asked Dinner. At its most basic, the transportation translates into "high priccs, h g h energy costs," but in a more complex analysis we realize how it is "very easy to be removed from these things," as we are only willing to see that the green peppers are fresh ignoring that our vegetable choice is also a global choice. This choice revolves around issucs of oil extraction, greenhousegases andthe global labour exertcd to feed North America. Also interesting in the produce aisle is the growing popularity of organic foods, significantly smaller than the other produce section. "There's health concerns and safety concerns which is why places like Zehrs have branched o;t into the organic food market," noted Dinner. Organic foods are trendy due to pesticide use, the impact it has o n soil maintenance and the health of the consumer, but "it's a highly inaccesible area of the store ... it's not something that evervone can afford and part of that is because mainstream factory farming is highly subsidized in Canada and in the rest of the world," while xganic produce reflects the true

-

cost of food. This "creates a false perception that organics are much more expensive to grow." Our tour continued, touching o n a number of issues of importance. Passing through the aisles we learned of the increasing lack of biodiversity due to thc increased corporatization of food production and consutnption. Weston highlighted that the rich and diverse Indian rice production industry has been reduced from over 100 varieties of rice to a mere 12. Heading into the meat scction, our discussion turned to factory farms. The ncgative consequences of produce come from the fact that the majority of it is produced in mono-cropped farms, a practice which can be harmful for the soil. Similarly, the majority of grocery store meat is produccd by factory farms whichessentially turnlivcstock fuming into large-scale industries with a significantleapin the scale and size of the farm operation. "When you're not buying it from the market or somebody that's farming the arca, you don't really have a sense of how they're grown," said Dinner. Weston agreed, suggesting that this lack of awareness leads to "not a lot of protectmn for the e m ronmental problemc that can anse from [the farmmg]." As we are separated from the processes of the meat market, we are completely unaware of the sometimes deplorable conditions in which our "food" is forced to live prior to its death, as well as thc cnvironmental concerns associated with thc factories that produce cows, chickens and pigs. Also in the meat section, we discussed genetic modtfication. which has become perhaps the most publicizedissuc around grocery shopping. Genetic modification has become an increasingly accepted practice within a number of food production industries. However, its use raises ethical and food safety issues such as the potential health consequences that have been associated with bovine growth hormones. Dinner stated, "They're finhng that Fumans] especially females, are developing earlier and earlier," aphen o m e n o n with far-reaching implicatons linked to use of the hormone to improve the production of milk in cows. This highlights the unsettlingpotential risks which exist within the increasing need to make a more efficient and profitable food industry. The tour could certainly leave the - -

consumer unsettled, shaken and pourerless as we learned ofissues including the use of antibiotics in dairy products and meat, the growing concern over a lack of local goods and the waste associated with food choices. However, perhaps the most important lesson of Weston and Dinner's tour was that the constant connection with our food consumption doesn't need to translate into a radical decision to stop eating anything that's not organic, locally produccd and vegctarian. Instead, Dinner notes, the information can simply lead to greater awareness and that change can occur as a matter of degrees, not extremes. "It can often be a choice of conflicting priorities. It's about keeping those things in mind, more than anything else, and then making the dccision based on what you prioritize," notes Weston. However, the two cite buying local, buying from markets, seed-sharing, buying from a co-op, growing your own food or buying organic as possible options to try and be more responsible in your food consumption. However, Weston and Dinner put this in perspective: "I don't expect most people that are reading this are going to read this to say 'Oh, I'm going to change my life right now.' Well, think about t h s stuff.. .Me making20 changes o r 20 people making one change d have the same impact o n our world." Perhaps an elementary school lesson, but one o n a complex, difficult and life-essential question.

COOKIN6 WITH COFFEE Believe it or not, all of you aspiring chefs out there can add coffee to a number of classic recipes to give it that extra kick of caffeine and flavour. Some of the most popular redpesthatinclude coffee are chili, stews and even some soups. One of the recipes here traditionally has coffee as a main ingredient; the others are a bit more off-thewall. Just remember, as with sex so goes food: experiment, it's the only way to find out if it works for you. We even threw in a recipe for Irish Coffeein honour of St. Paddy's Day.

PERKY PASTA Instead of a tomato sauce, this pasta has a flavourful coffee and wine reduction on it. Sounds strange, tastes great. 1 lb of pasta (any medium sized noodle will do) two onions four spoonfuls of olive oil or butter % litre of red wine '/Z litre of regular strength coffee salt and pepper Chop the onions, and put them into a large skillet at a mehum-hlgh heat with the butter or oil and cook until they start to look transparent. Add salt and pepper to taste, and then slowly add the wine allowing it to reduce. Once it has reduced do the same with the coffee. If you want to add ground beef, chicken or turkey to this dish, add it in with the onions and allow it to cook all the way through before you start to add the wine. Serves four.

Put whisky into warmed glass, add coffee and sugar to taste. Slowly pour the cream into it so that it rests on top of the coffee. Serves one.

COWBOY CHILI Coffee is a great ingredient for chili, you can add as much or as little coffee as you want. Add a small can of hot peppers, salsa or hot sauce to this recipe to suit your tastes. * 2 tbsp. vegetable oil 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped 1 % tbsp. chili powder I tsp. thyme 1 tsp. ground pepper 1 cup broth (veggie or beef) 1 cup extra-strength coffee % cup chopped onion 2 lbs. sirloin steak, cut into '/z inch cubes or 2 lbs. ofground beef. Vegetables can be used instead, tq green and red pep pers, zucchini, summer squash 1 tsp ground cumin (optional) 14 oz. can tomato puree or crushed peeled tomatoes 14 oz. can of kidney or black beans (drained and rinsed) salt

In alarge pot, heat one tbsp. ofoil and fry the onion and garlic over mehum heat until the onion becomes transparent. In a skillet addone tbsp. ofoiland a few splashes of coffee, brown the steak cubes or vegetables until cooked. Add the remaining - cup - of coffee, spices and tomatoes to the onion and garlic. Bring to a boil, stir well (stirring is key to m a h g good chlh), and let it simmer for at least 10 minutes. Add the broth and the beans and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for one hour stirring frequently. Add salt to taste. Serves six.

Are you pulling your hair out over midterms -or, is it falling out on its own? For those of you who treat your hair as a source of pride and indwiduality, this may be cause for major concern. Before you start researching the ingredients to the peanut butter solution, there are some facts abouthair loss youshouldknow. Although the most common type of hak thinntng, androgenetic alopecia or pattem baldness, generally begins in the 20s and early 30s for males, and after menopause for women, it may begin as early as puberty. Affecting one-third of all susceptible women and 15 to 30 per cent of men between the ages of 18 and 29, this hair loss is predominantly from the top and sides of the head. Age, coupled with genetics, is the root cause of pattern baldness. There is currently no cure for this type of balding. However, hair loss is not necessarilypermanent.Two other types of hair thinning that affect both men and women are anagen effluvium and telogen effluvium. Anagen effluvium results from internally administered medications, such as chemotherapy agents, that poison the growing hair follicle. Telogen effluvium occurs when an increased number of hair fohcles enter the resting stage. Typical causes of telogen effluvium include physical stress such as surgery,illness, anemia and rapid weight change. Emotional stress can also play a laree Dart in hair loss of this h d . In A

I

,

addition, pattern baldness can be caused by thyroid abnormalities, blood pressure medications, and medications that includedhigh doses of vitamin A. For women, hair loss can also be attributed to hormonal causes such as post-pregnancy, the dlscontinuation of birth control pills and menopause. Once the causes of telogen effluvium are reversed, normal hair growth should return. There are some diet programs that require theingestion of vitamins to prevent hair loss associated with dieting. However, from the dermatologist's perspective, these supplements are ineffective in retarding hair loss and can actually exacerbate the condition because many of them contain high doses of vitamin A. Hair loss attributed to surgery, severe illness arid emotional stress causes the body to shut down production of hair as it is not necessary for survival. Instead, its energies are directed toward repairing vital parts of the body. It is important to note that hair loss attributed to physical stress, emotional stress and hormonal changescan occurup to threemonths after the actual event to begin. Another three months may be required for the noticeable regrowth of hair to occur making the regrowth cycle a total of six months or longer when experiencing either physical or emotional stress. Recently,whilemany pharmaceutical companies have begun to seriously +vest in hair loss research, several myths related to hair still exist. Frequent shampooing,perms, po~ular colors and stress.. desoite . . .

belief, do not cause permanent hair loss. Additional misconceptions are that hair loss does not occur in the late teens or early 20s and that brushing your hair 100 strokes daily will make it healthier. If a serious hair loss problem is suspected, a dermatologistwho has a good amount of experience in this field should be consulted. A physician will give a dtagnosis and help choose an appropriate form of hair Ioss treatment. Treatments that can have sigmficant effects without having to make a major decision include perms, cuts, colour and other cosmetic options to give the look of thicker hair. While it does not stimulate hair growth, Rogaine, which is the only FDA-approved medication currently available forpattern hair loss, retards thinning. Hair replacement surgery and hair additions are remedies that require further consideration. There is also, of course, as many men and women have done, the acceptance of hair loss and the realization that life goes on.

How things work: the science of beer Kourtney Short IMPRINT STAFF

This Sunday, St. Patrick's day, many of us wdl sit down to a pint of green-tinted beer. Beyond wishing that science had discovered a cure for the common hangover, few of us will think of the science that went into making that beer. Beer consists of water, barley, hops and yeast. The barley is malted to convert the starch, or complex carbohydrates, into sugar through a tedious process. To begm, the barley is soaked in cool water for several days, then drained and held at about l6OC for five days. This causes the barley to sprout, releasing enzymes that convert starches into sugar. Next, the process is halted and the barley is dried by increasing the temperature. Drylng the barley

Regarding last week's article "Engineers bring top honours home":

at a higher temperature results in a darker, more flavourful beer. The barley is then used to make barley mash. To make the mash, the malted barley is crushed between rollers and then wet with hot water, at around 65OC. The water is circulated through the crushed grains to remove barley sugar. After most of the sugar is removed, the barley is then discarded and the sweet liquid, called wort, moves on. At this stage of production, the wort is brought to a rolling boil. The boihngprocess occurs for90minutes to extract the acid from the hops. Hops are added to beer for bitterness and flavour. They also have a preserving effect. Hops are the flower of the hop vine, which is a member of the hemp farmly. Although hops are closely related to marijuana, they do not contain any hallucinogenic compounds. More hops may be added during the last 15 minutes of boiling for aroma and flavour, dependmgon the type of beer being brewed. The solids are then removed from the liquid by creating a whirlpoolin the wort and allowing them to settle to the bottom. The wort is then drained, leaving the hops in the kettle. Finally, the wort is cooled so that yeast may be added. The yeastused to make beer is the same type that is used to make bread -in fact, breweries used to sell their yeast to bakers for use in bread. Yeast used in making beer metabolizes the sugar into ethyl alcohol, or ethanol, and carbon dioxide as shownin the followingequation: C,H,,O, -> 2C0, + 2CH,CH,OH. The ethyl alcohol contributes the alcoholic content ofbeer,while the carbon dioxide contributesto the carbonation.

Devenny keeps family high priority Canadian roohe of the year happy to be close to home during her fnst year of varsity hoops Kerry O'Brien IMPRINT STAFF

_

I n the women's basketball team manual, you will find three priorities listed: family, school and basketball. In that order. Which explains why Julie Devenny has been so successfulthis year: to be close to her family, she went to UW for school, where she plays basketball. In that order. If you haven't heard, Devenny is the first-year post playmg phenom who tore up the hardwood for UW this year (contrary to rumouts and Web sites, she is not a point guard). She averaged 16 points a game this season for the Warriors en route to being elected co-rookie of the year for the OUA (with Laurier's Sarah Zagorski) and sole rookie of the year for the CIS. Away from the court, Devenny could best be descnbed as unassuming. She dresses casually, speakscasually, and generally presents nothing about herself that would identify her as one of the top hoopers in Canada. The beginning of the interview is a little stiff. I trv to break the ice with a few light questions: favourite colout (blue), car (Dodge Durango), music (R&B), etcetera. Pretty standard. It's the simple question ofwhat's m her CD player that gets a spark. "My CD player has like,200 discs. My dad is a hi-tech freak, he sees these hi-tech toys and he just buys them.

Power struggle in CFL brass creates low politics

Bradley Reiter SPORTS COMMENTARY

For those of you who haven't noticed-probably themajorityofyou - the Canadian Football League has been makingit into thenews alot in the past few weeks on an issue most wish would never have surfaced. At the heart of this issue is a power struggle between the league's commissioner Paul Lysko and one of its owners, Shenvood Schwartz,

and how their ineptness translates into power politics. This feud goes back to last season, a disappointing one forthe Argos both on and off the field. Not only &d they lose the majority of their games, but they lost money - a lot ofit. With a losing team on the field, the Argos tried such pre-game marketing tactics as wet t-shirt shows, whlch some of my friends have characterized as either reeking of the now defunct XFL or as being a duty play. CFL owners publicly challenged Schwarz to come up with a workable business plan to regain the confidence of its board of governors. To meet this request, Schwartz

brought in Garth Drabinsky, a move that Michael Lysko has compared to making a deal with the devil. In this endeavour,Drabinskyhas been confident enough in his tactics to promise 40,000 to 50,000 fans a game compared to the fraction of that number they were getting last season. Soon after this, Lysko, in an interview with the Toronto Star, called the Argo orgamzation incompetent as well as everything else under the sun. In !us own eloquent way, Lysko summed up his frustration as saying he's mad because "the Argos think they're smart about this, and they're dumb." This can hardly be thought of as

Warrior CIS track results

constructive words from a league commissioner who only six months ago was on the verge ofbeing thrown out of the league for flip flopping on whether to cancelgames in the wake of 9/11 when every other professional league in the world decided to take time off as a sign of respect, consideringthe fact that the majority of players in the CFL are American. Now we have Schwartz c a h g for Lysko's head on a pike. Bear in mind that Lyskois aleague employee who has no vested equity in the league. The board of governors can in fact vote hun out of the league at any time. So now Schwartz called a meeting of the owners to discuss Lysko's removal. The board has a tough decisionin terms of alliances because of h s . Do they close ranks with the owners

and side with the same Schwartz in whom they lost confidence half a year ago? By doing this they risk not only coveringthe remainingtwo years of Lysko's contract, but also the difficult prospect of finding another commissioner to gulde the league right at the dawn of a new season. The other option is to follow Lysko and risk alienating a troubled Schwartz whose financial situation does not ensure the continued existence of the Argo franchise in the largest CFL market in Canada. Whatever the decision, it is one I'm certain the owners, and the rest of the fans of the CFL (those few that still remain) wish would just go away. This is low politics at best.

You're lifting wrong, you little girly man Peoole need to be more safe and productive in their weight-training Tom Toth SPECIAL TO IMPRINT

--.

I walk into the PAC gym, and it is always the samestory: the guy doingbench presses bounces the bar off his chest, the guy doing squats rounds his back, the girl doing curls uses so little weight the exercise can't possibly be effective, and so on. Poor form is endemic in our esteemed school's gym. I decided to write this article to teach beginner weight-trainers the proper method for lilting weights. So if you want to improve your gains and be safer at the same time, listen to me now and hear me later. To keep things simple, I will split correct form into two parts: the speed of the movement and proper technique. First, let's discuss speed of movement. One of the most frequent mistakes I see in the gym is the weight being lifted and lowered too quickly, either because the weight is too heavy to be lifted using the proper speed, or too light, in which case it does not provide enough resistance. My recommendation is using the following speed (i.e. tempo in gym-speak) for most lifts: lower the weight for three seconds, pause for one second, then raise it for two seconds. Repeat, without pausing at the top. If you do eight reps per set (my recommendation), this will amount to a time of 40-50 seconds under

tension for the.musc1ein question, very close to the optimal time. The first time you try this method, it wdl probably seem very slow, but stick with it because it works. The science behind slower tempo is simple: it isolates the muscle (allows for less cheating), it focuses onthe"eccentriccontraction," which reportedly is responsible for 60 per cent of strength and size gains, and it is much safer, because tendons and ligaments are not being stressed by the free-falhng weight. You will also find that you can lift less weight this way. I recommend you swallow your ego and use only as much weight as you can handle. When your strength starts going up and you gain new musele, you'll be glad you dtd. Next, I'd like to talk about using proper technique forlifting. Using a slower tempo will help with a lot of the problems in this area, but a few more things need to examined. First, you must use a full range of movement in all your lifts. It is well known in exercise science circles that muscle only gets strongerin the range that it is trained; therefore, to get the most benefit out of your program you should make sure you fully extend and contract your muscles in every rep of every set. The major exception to this rule is squats. Going too low on squats can hurt your back. I recommend going only about five centimettes below the point where your thighs are parallel

Recstudent Paul Laskenbench pressesin the PAC gym. Is thisthe right way,Tom? to the floor. Also; focus on isolating the muscles you're working by moving only the joints that are absolutely needed. For example, your biceps' main job is to flex your elbows (bring them closer to you shoulders),so a biceps curl should be done with only your elbow joint moving. Nearly all beginners commit the mistake of not

keeping their elbows locked to their sides when curling. This reduces tension on the biceps and places it on the shoulders, which reduces the effectiveness of the exercise.

Broomball teams are high on spirit, competition fierce in Campus Rec hoops

CAMPUS REC

-

Campus Recreation broomball has two leagues this term: competitive and co-rec. Competitive broomball features refereed games, use of the offside rule and scorekeeping. The games are often fast-paced and very intense. Co-rec broomball is played ulthout referees, offside rule and score-keeping, and also features end to end action with fine

offensive and defensive plays. The playoffs will soon begin in the competitive league. The Whackers are currently in &st place and are aiming for their fifth championship in a row. The Crazy Latex Penguins and Stallions in the Desert are in close pursuit and are challenging for the title. Additionally, all of these top teams have perfect spirit of competition scores. The spirit scores evaluate the level of a team's fair play and sportsmanship. Other teams with perfect or near perfect spirit scores are Tigers, Endangered Species, and Scorching Heat. All of these teams will be rewarded with an extra game at the end of the regular season. The co-rec league features many beginner players and teams that emphasize fun over competition. They have shown much improvement throughout the term and an excellent level of fair play and sportsmanship as well. Special mention to the following teams:

Mike Crough Allstars, The Cowards, The Pilons, Heap of Sweeps and Grover's Army. These teams have greatly conmbuted to a very fun and exciting term of co-rec broomball. We are always looking for new players to this alternative sport on ice. If you are interested in playing next term, please contact bheringer@hotmail.com for more information. Also this term, Campus Recreation hosted the largest competitive basketball league ever with 88 teams participating in the regular season! Competition has been fierce and close between many teams in different &visions. In the A division with 16 teams, BCBB V -The Dynasty has ruled the courts along with Wildest Cats with the only difference being their score differential. Both teams are undefeated and we look forward to seeing them play each other in the A1 division championship game. Bus Drivers are close in thud. In the B &vision with 39 teams, The

Corporate Team and Steve Kerr are both undefeated at five games each, entering the last week of the regular season. Both teams are tied for wins and their point dfferential. Close in third (and also undefeated) are the G.C.I. Allstars followed by Hardcourt Thugz. In the C division with 28 teams, Team O.V. is the only undefeated team in the league. Second place is 105th Element, and closely following is Gone in 60 Seconds, with one more game to play and a very close point differential. So, a n y t h g can still happen in this top bracket. In the D division, with 6 teams, it's Firetruck in the lead as the only undefeated team followed by MECH 2K5 wrth three wms and 177 points. In third are the F l p g Buttresses who edged in wrth the last game. It has been a fantastic season. Congrahdadons to all the teams who have pushed through the regular season with the Super Bowl, reading week, and NBA all-star game, and still made it to their games.

IMPRINT STAFF 'l'lie process all began in car11

UW Dmma will be exploring the nature of one of the strangest and most homble chapters in American history with their production of The C~-llczbIel'ryect, opening Wednesday at the Theatre of the Arts. This is no conventional rendering of Arthur Miller's classic, T / J<.htci/de ~ -a play that charactcrizcd the Salem witch hysteria of the 17th century. UW Drama used Miller's original text for inspmtion only, inventing a production that IS entirely their own. Driven by "collective creation," a relativclj- new form of theatre that invol\-es each cast member in the creation of the script, this performance will be groundbrcalung. Director Iiim Kcnders, alongside assistant director Erilia McNiece, utilized this innovative concept to shift the focus from the tinalproduct to the process itself. In Ihc (;;.~cii?lr PruJed, everyone plays an activc role in the various elements of production and 1s en-

Januarywhen, follominga roundtable reading of Mller's test, each rncmber ofthc cast set about investigating the play's central characters and thcmes. From there, the actors devised a cluster of nionologues, slats, and improvisations that would eventually meld into a structured performance. Think ofjt as the ongoing and selective process of evolution: whatel. er works moves forward, and whatever doesn't is scrappccl. "It has really openedup the actors to see themselves as theatre- artists and a part of the creatlre team," says stage manager Stephan~eColeman. Because of this creative freedom, putting together Thr O z i d d e Pryect was less ahout d~rection,and more about interpretation. Everything from the sound to the lights to thc costumes were part of a fragmental-!process, brought about by the imaglnations of the company. see DRAMA, page 25

Lenni Jabour and the Third Floor At the Clarion Cafe Independent

While Lenni Jabour's demo CD was produced by Hawksle~ Workman and recorded at Hawksleytown Studios, her most recent offerings, Ten Songs Live and now A t the Chion Cap, are lessons in frugahty. They were both recorded, produced and mastered without the aid of a major studio. Or any studio, for that matter. The first was recorded live at Toronto's C'est m a t , and the new release was recorded before an intimate by-invitation-only audience of ThirdFloor friends at the tiny Clarion Cafk, nestled snugly between shops on Queen Street West. Theselive-off-the-boards recordmgs are apt, smce Lenm Jabour and the T h d Floor is a band best expenenced live You've gotta see it to become a believer.Jabour's fun cabaret shows capture the forgotten m e of vaudeville, flappers and bawdy piano bars The band is fast s e h g out larger and larger venues m Toronto and accruing glowmg media coverage. A t the C h o n Cafe' c o n t k s 11 of Jabour's newer songs performedwith insurmountable flair and class by Jabour on piano, glockenspiel, and vocals; Alex McMaster on cello; Natasha Sharko on viola; Drew Burston on double bass; andRosalita Whyte on tambourine. Band mainstay Fred the Dancing Dog is also iepresented on the album, if only as inspitabon for the first musical interlude. The songs themselves, stripped of the flamboyant stage Performance, are solid constructions ofbeautifd melodies studded by Jabour's passionate, clear voice. They range from baroque to pop to cabaret to jazz, containing many a can-can and waltzing rhythm. The moying ballads best showcase Jabour's voice, which is heartrending when it gets mournful and verges on cracking. If you're human,

its enough to brings tears to your eyes and shivers to your spine. All of the songs on t h s album are titillating for their own reasons. Jabour adopts a German accent for the amusing "A Very Interesting Man" and sings in French on 'Toujours Tr&sDoux." She tugs at your heartstrings wth "Old Falling Down" and "Trouble Song (Angle, Say a Prayer)." "The Famous Song" and "Song For a Thlef' are pamcularly goosebumpinducing when Jabout lets her voice run free. A t the Clarion Cafe'is a splendid example of how lucky we all are to have an artist likeJabour in the music scene; it's magical from the orchestral tuning at the beginning to the uproarious applause at the end.

I wish Cake would go back to theu Fashron Nuget sound The song they donate to this albumis typical of thar newmusic: lame, feel-good and trying too hard to havea funky sound. It was disappomtmg to find out that Crazy Town has a song on Orange Counp. Of course, it's t h w one and onlypopular song, "Butterfly." I can't stress enough that this song and this band is garbage. Untalented, elementary riffs and composition, not to mention their video in which they frolic aroundlike fairies. in a field. Good to hear some new stuff from Lit. Their song, "Everything's Cool" isn't much different from what we heard from them four years ago, but it was good then and it stdl is now. A live version of "Story of my Life" by Social Distortion is a welcome addition to the disc. Tracks from Offspring, Foo Fighters, Lit and Social Distortion make h s album a good one. Shame on the stupid producers who mined so many good tunes by mixing them in with big fat donkey shit. This album isn't selling crap either-proving that an album created just to make money by hocking stuffthat is supposedly bemg listened to is destined to be a flop. Once agam, good work Hoyywood. -

Oliver Schroer Restless Urban Primitive Big Dog Music

Oliver Schroer is potentially best described as an eclectic and enigmatic person who likes to t h d of himself as a conduit for the music of the world that is swirhg around us. On his latest dlsc, Restless Urban Phitive, Schroer displays this very ability,harnessing~esoundsofmany of the world's styles in a cryptic, cultural and compelling set of songs for the v i o h . Schroerhimselfdescribesthe disc as "about a journey" as he ventures to musically convey the " j o e g s , sketches, and the odd portrait" displayed to him in his geographic travels acrossEngland, Turkey, Norway, Sweden,Cahforma and Quebec. The disc manages to convey many of

these very distinctive styles, at times reflecting an abstract classical form indicative of western Europe and at other times fusingviolinand fiddlein what is clearly a more agrarian and narrative tale. The album is actually a compilation ofmusicalimprovisations,which Schroer attempted to put down in response to his wanderings. Interwoven with the raw sounds of home recording, the disc is very much like sitting down to watch someone's awkward slides of their latest vacation. L&e those ventures into the dingy living room for a voyeuristic snapshot of someone else's idea of interesting,Schroeroccasionally loses thelistener inwhat is clearly his own inside joke or story from the musical trip. That being said, the dtsc is largely successful, fusing a bizarre and inter- . esting set of sounds and rhythms, which reflect to us not only the diversity of the world's music but also Schroer's own personal understandingofit. W e not a journey that has been glossedinto a photo album, the raw and unedited "snapshot" is a powerful voyage for the ears. Mark A. Schaan, Imprint staff

Columbia ISony Music Soundtrax

DRAMA, from page 23

After heanng Offsprmg's "Defy You" on the radio and seemg the video for Foo Fighters "The One," I was excited to get my hands on the Orange Coanp soundtrack. The contnbutlons from Offspring and Foo Fighters are about as hard as this album gets, which I thought was a letdown. The compilers of Orange Coungtty as hard as they can to make this album mainstream popular. with a few one-htt wonders and nothing too outside the box, it appears their goal is met. Orange Coung has its fair share of the type oflame-assmusic onewould expect from a teen-graduating-hlghschool-off-to-the-big-worldtype of movie. These songs blow and are just being used by producers so 13-yearoldJohnnie's parents willlet him play it in the car. Songsm this category are exemplified by CreeperLagon, Brian Wilson and Phantom Planet.

It was then up to the director to sort through the bits and pieces, and to compile them into a coherent, meaningful work. Coleman, for one, was enthusiastic about the innovativeprocess, and described the experience as one that was very gratifymg. 'You start with nothmg, and all of the sudden you have this show," she exclaimed."It's incredible. I can't describe it." Miller's original text examines the perversion of justice by religious fanatics during the legendarywitch trials, a historical c h a t e paralleled by the "Red Scare" of 1950s McCarthyism. Although only time will tell what insights UW Drama has to share on this theme, the show promises to be a unique and entertainingexperience.

otherwise unnoticed acts some exposure, but Ray points out that it also "alleviat[es] the pressure of out-of-town bands to drum up a draw." Rawkin' Ray has encouraged me to pass the offer along to bands outside of the city, whlch is a huge opportunity for K-Whands, like my own, that couldn't get a Toronto show if their careers depended on it. I have also been informed that the bands ulll get a cut of any money made at the door, which I consider justification for anyone wary of spending gas money to haul their gear out to the city. I have found every aspect of contact with Gen-Sub has been friendly and goodnatured. I believe that this label really does just want to push the music, a refreshing change from the legions of companies mimicking the Sub-Pop business model of "sell the brand, not the star." They honestly just want you all to hear music that, for reasons fmancial, political or geographical, cannot fmd a forum elsewhere. It's also nice to meet a promotions h e c t o r who acts like an honest-to-goodness human being rather than an annoymg sales representative. I encourage you to check out some of the music avadable from Gen-Sub, especially since you can own their entire library for about 25 bucks. Also, if you're in the Toronto area you can swing by the Indie Showcase and maybe catch the Next Big Thmg. Check out GenSub at www.gensub.com.
