Accordmg toDavid Field, the reasons for Sehdev's finngwerenotbased on the content that was published, but on his performance. "Myself and the board of directors [decided] to temnate Maneesh Sehdev because we felt that he wasn't d m g his job as required as EIC, and we have evidence," satdFieldmaninterview. Field wouldnot reveal the mainissues since theywere recorded in the minutes of the Thursday night meeting, which was confidential. The role of the editor is set out in The Cord policy, but Sehdev was not required to sign a contractwhen he was hired Sehdevfeels he didnot receiveany satisfactory explanationfor hts f h g , and said his fimg had everythtngto do with content Inparticular,he feels thathe was fired directlybecause ofthe September11issue ofthepaper,wherc a URL fora novcltywebsite mvolving crack cocaine was substituted for a WLUSP affiliated URL As a result, the board ofdirectorsdelayed the dis-

Four editors have resigned since Sehdev was fired. The decision to fire Sehdev was made shortly after the September 11 issue was distributed after bemg held by the board of directors. On the morning of September 11,Field noticedthemkURL.

He and
members of the board then met to discuss the issue and, according to Sehdev, "I hey crucified me for an hour and accused me of destroying student publications, which is aomc bccause they didit by finngme " Field felt that hewas actmgmapreempttve manner to avoid student complamts To Sehdev's knowledge, there had been no complamts At the 7 00 board meeting, the editorial board voiced its support for thepaper Sehdevgot theimpression that the editorial board would walk if the paper were withheld A key issue, when talking with both Field and Angela Poster, the adveaisingmanager for TheCord,was that Sehdevwasincreasinglydifficult to get a hold of "I could probably count on one hand the number of times that I saw Maneesh over the summer," said Foster. In the summer, The Cordpublished three issues and student publications published the student handbook, of which Sehdevplayedaroletnproduction In addition to not posting regular office hours,Sehdevdidnot have aworkmg phonelineatwhichhecouldbereached A July 14 letter, addressed to Sehdev, written followmg a board of dxectorsretreatandsgnedby allboard members save one who was absent, informed Sehdev of the difficulties that the board was having with him. Field declinedto discuss Sehdev's response, beyond saying Sehdevmade assurancesto correctthe situation.
AccordmgtoField,oneoftheproblcms was the ratio of adx,citising to editorial content m recent editions Field said that his preferred ad to content ratio w-asabout 30per cent to 70 per cent Elate\ er ads that the advertising manager sold would dic tate the amount of content for the week,ifthree pages worth of adswere sold for a ten page issue, then seven pages of TheCordwould have content Iqntit found the ad to content ratio in the September 11 Cordto be about 50 to 50, before the general meeting for recruitment Iqnnt's ad to con tent ratio for this issue is 45 to 55 In addition, the working relationship between Sehdevand Foster was stramed In a regular Cordproduction scenario,the adveaisingmanagersells ads, then informs the editor of the number of ads to be placedin the next issue to be published The editor then places the ads in the paper According to Foster, itwas incredibly difficult to communicate with Sehdev As a result, ads were msplaced in the Cord with the result that customers were unhappy Foster said she was angry because people complainedto her that mistakes have been made whenin her opinion Sehdevisat fault. BothField and Foster admitted that previous editors had caused s d a r problems but the difficulty stemmed from not bemgabletocommumcatewithSehdev and discuss the problem

Bombshelter patio remains dry; Feds awaits AGCO approval Lauren Staines SPECIAL TO IMPRINT
The Bomber's patio is one step closer to being open for business. After a series of delays, the final piece of their liquor licence application was sent September 17. Although it seems hard to believe, the seemingly simple applicationprocess has been subject to numerous setbacks which began last summer. Chris DtLullo,vice-president administration and finance for the I'ederation of Students,was told by the director of U\Y7business operations in earlpJulythat the licence reapplication would be sent to the 'Alcohol and Gaming Commission 'of Ontario (AGCO) as part of a group of applications from the VnixTerstty of \Y.aterloo. Howenr, a month later Di Lull0 learned that the application had still not been .. sent, and had the Bombshelter ap
plication removed from the group of applications in order to fast track it Upon further inspection, the architectural drawings of the newly expanded patio were found to be insufficient and Gary Kosar was asked to resubmit the drawings. It was reported in the September 13 issue of Impnntthat these drawings were to have been completed and sent to the AGCO by the end oflast week Allthough Kosar handed in the modified, more detatled draw ings on Friday, they had to be redone yet again, their size being reduced from 24 inches by 36 in. to what mas, according to the AGCO, the standard of 8 1/2 iil. by 11 in. Therefore, the final blueprtnts were in fact completed hlonday and sent to the AGCO on 'l'uesday The evaluation process cannot begm un ti1 the AGCO receives Kosar's new blueprints

Until the new licence IS received, patrons will still only be able to use 240 square metres of the patio, leaving just over half of the spacious patio blocked off by metal barriers. Some have mentioned the possibiltty of making thc new section of the patio alcohol free, but D ~ T ~ u ldislo missed the suggestion, saying, "\T e didn't want to confuse students by saying, Yeah, you can go on there but you can't hax e drinks '" He also worrted that it would "open the door to the possibtlity of someone going there with a drink" Di Lullo told Impnntthatpart of the 60 day evaluation period involves the municipaliq inspecting the Bomber to ensure co operation with fire safety and building regulations, as well as checking the universay's liquorlicence record. ' T h a t they do is take a look at our file to make sure that we haven't had iilfractions in the past and make sure that they're not ,@ringailextension to the wrong type of people " He added that to his knowledge, "the university's Iiq uor licence has no tnfracttons against it whatsoe>er " Di Lullo menttoned that if they were to allow the afore mentioned alcohol free zone and a patronwere caughtwtth alcohol, the untvcrsity would not be able to re cetve the new liquor license He also
vowed to keep informed of the ap plication's status, saying, "I'll be inonitoring the sttuation, checking up with the alcohol andgamingcom mission.'' Di Lullo is confident that the Bombshelter's new patio will soon be available to patrons. 'Ie expects that it will take approximately 60 dayvfrom September 23, adding that "sometimes they can be sooner." TIe went on to say that the AGCO will not simply rubber stamp UK 's reapplication, but will instead "take a look at it and go 'okay, it's the University of \Y. aterloo, it's not re ally a big deal' " Di Lullo said that the AGCO is in accordance with the beliefs ofmanv student4 a n d administrators "They'd rather hare the students going to the bars on-campus than the bars off-campus, because that's where the problems start to happen." F.mn though it is probable that the Bomber will not open the full patio until mid- to late Noremher, Di Lullo said that they have purchased three patio heaters, each with a radius of about 18 metres. "Maybe me can have some sort of grand opening. If not, it just means we get to open the patio earlier in the spring or winter term, weather permitting. Ke'll just see how it goes."

The state of housing 11: is h o u s h in Waterloo unraveb?
On Sunday, Students' Councd resolved toaffectacity bylaw change to alleviate housing restriction by applying pressure in different ways One is to increase student voter turnout m municipal elections and hence allow our representativesto exert more politicalpower in the interest of students, the other is to apply pressure to the city by not negotiatingwith a regional government divison on a related issue the issue of a mandator y fee and uiuversal bus pass for university students. Council's hope is that these measureswill pressure the city to repeal the 75 metre spacing restriction on lodging houses what they call mnimum &stance of separation or MDS During the discussion of the two resolutrons councillorsaccepted the notion that there is not enough affordable, high quality housing close to the university This is unfortunate because students' acceptance of this notion is mainly
anecdotal and confoundedby selfmterest Feds VP education Ryan OConnor wrote m apress release, "Placingrestrictlonson the amount of lodging houses which can be licensed has an adverse affect on the housing supply m Waterloo, which in turn has an extremely negative impact on housing quality and students'access to their universities " We as students have started makmga case for how the restriction affects the lodging house market but not that there a a need for change We need evidence to back up that more housing is needed Some suggest that the for rent signs are an indicator that students wlM not be short of housmg in the conungyear On uwstudent org, Matt Goyer posted ". I've sure seen a lot of vacancy signs around town this fall so this can't be such a pressing issue." As I reported in Impnnt on June 28, demand for off-campus rental housingwill increase by more than 1,000 beds thls year and next year to meet the demand of the growing student population This number accounts for planned growth in oncampus housmg and prolected enrolment growth, but doesn't include non-student rental demand
Mean rent Vacancy percenta
Of these vacancies -we should considerwhy they are stillvacantthose that are of acceptablequality w d be able to absorb some of the demand New spaces however,will have to be created or found for all other growth m enrolment. It should be the hope of leaders in the student community that all students have housing of a mmum level of quality.It is the desire of each student that he has housing of good quality and value. Gwen the necessity for aplace to live, standards for acceptable quality decrease when housing spaces are
Canadian Mortgage Housing Corporation is Canada's national housing agency which provides a variety of housing related products and services to help address the housmg needs of Canadians As apart of their services they collect information on the housing market and offer it through their Web site. According to data provided by the CMHC,thevacancy ratein apartments in Waterloo has been below two per cent since 1994. Changes m rent remained below three per cent from 1995 to 1998. Over the three years from 1999 to
2001 rents haveincreasedbyfour per cent, six per cent and ten per cent respectively. With demand for housmg increasingin an tight rental market with rents increasing,housing will be a concern for students for at least the next quinquennium We must find out all we can about the situation and do all we can to affect it Questions still remain. What will the city do to address the situation and how much can students affect the process?

Why Students' Councd decided to cease negotiations with Grand River Transit about a universal bus pass until this subsection is repealed mght not be evident krst, GRT is related to the Region of UJaterloo, not the City of Waterloo, so the pressure applied by ceasingnegotiations 1s not directly appl~edto the the city. But the pressure flows through the Region for two reasons one, the Mayor ofwaterloo sits on Kegonal council, and two, both the region and the city want a universal bus pass Though a remains to be seen how effective this pressure will be, it is certamly better than no pressure Students' Council made two good decisions on Sunday, but that im't the whole story The debate on the two motions, especially the latter one, was very good. Many councillors spoke intelligently about the issues and the debate lasted more than an hour. Students' Council should be congratulated for discussing an important issue and for deciding to try to change a part of the city's bylaws that is harmful to students.

discovered an Egyptian tomb m the necropolis of Saqqara Ignorant of the identities of the tomb's inhabitants, they perused the grave's sandy walls m hopes of learmng whose eternal abode they had stumbled into To theu amazement, they discovered that the tomb was devoted to a male pax bwed around 2400 BC, Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep. Also notable were the hieroglyphic inscriptions of the two men, showmg them in a vanetvofaffechonate embraces From the tomb and its ancient engravings, one can assume that the men were extremely close, and that they had hoped to meet again m the ancientafterlife. As "Overseers of the Manicurists in the Palace of the Kmg," Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep shared a common occupation. From thts job description we can tell two things. they had access to the Pharaoh h s e l f (which explains how they could have afforded such an elaborate burial)
and yes, they were mamcurists (laugh now, we'll chat about negative gay stereotypes some other time!) Also mteresting is the joining of the two mens' names in some of the hieroglyphs mto a word that translates to "Jomed in life and pined after death " The most fascinatingaspect of this paaicular tomb is the p i c t o d depictions of the manururists 'lhroughout the tomb, the men are shown m a number of embraces includtngonedescribedas the most intimate embrace possible m ancient Egyptianart. Here, Niankhkhnum is holdmg Khnumhotep's right forearm and with Khnumhotep's hand on Niankhkhnum's shoulder. Touching noses, they look into each other's eyes Also in this particular picture, the waist ties of their kilts appear to be tied together, perhaps symbolizing their love and partnership. From some of the other pictures in the tomb it is assumed that Niankhkhnum had once been married and had children Interestingly though, all pictures of his wife had been scratched off the walls Ancient Egyptian soap opera' Don't I wish1 Of course we cannot know for sure what the two men meant to one another.

Bad bouncers To the editor,
I am writing to raise a concern about the behaviour and attitude of a few FedHall bouncers at a recent Matthew Good concert. As a frequent concert goer, I w-as appalled by the way some of these bouncers treated fans. One concern I have is the lack of crowd control they enforced. They did agood job of throwing out crowd surfers (who can seriously hurt themselves and others) and keeping the barricade from falling over but that seemcd to be it. The bouncers did not seem very concerned about the safety of the people up at the front who were being crushed by a few hundred eager fans. I understand that somc people may counter this argument by saying that if people up at the front cannot handle the pressure, then get out. Hut I'm almost positive that if the)- too were up at the front, they would be concerned about their own safety. My other complaint is about a few bouncers whoafter the concert wcrc askedvery nicely by some fans if they could give them the discardedguitar picks and setlists lying
around on the stage. Most of the bouncers were very nice and happy to help the fans, some even politely refused, but one or two were not so nice. \Vhen some fans offered to pay them for these items (which the bouncers were taktng for themselves), they seemed to suggest that money wasn't good enough anymore and I even overheard one bouncer say to a girl that he "didn't think they were t a h g about money anymore." 'l'he girl seemed to understand the suggestive comment and seemed quite offended after that. Excluding the unfortunate cncouters with a few bouncers, the concertwas fantastic.Matthew Good and h s band put on a great show and were very down to earth and friendly when my friend and I met them after the show. I n-ould like to thank the Feds for inviting them to U\\. and giving students a chance to experience (heir amamng musical talents. T Tow-e~-er, the esperience could've beenmvre cnloyablc had some of the bouncers not been pricks.
MAPS AND LEGENDS Everyone wants to hit a home run their first time at the plate, but it's so easy to strike out. To break in Maps and Legends, I decided to look at the sorrylittle escapade at ConcordiaUniversity earlier this month, and what it means for the media and free speech. \Ve've all heard the story by now. On Monday, September 9 at Concordia Universityin Montreal, 500 pro-Palestinian demonstrators forced the cancellationof aplanned speech by Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's former prime minister. Sexwalunruly protestors vandalized the campus, and the pohce responded with tear gas and pepper spray (the usual). So, instead of the news story being about Netanyahu's latest brainwa7.e about "transferring" the population of the \Test Rank to Jordan, Syria,Mars, wherever, it's about out-of-control protestors kickingandpunching a local rabbi and h s wife, spimng on a holocaust
Chrktien outdoes himself
YOU! OFF M Y PLANET Most people, including h s supporters, love a good laugh at the expense of George \V. Bush. IIe's not the quickest bunny in the forest, they say, and he says some pretty stupid things. Fair enough -I've seen the hilarious quotations circulatedvia e-mail. Compared to our own leader, however, ol' Dubya is a paragon of hguistic and moral clarity. T o be sure, the PM has said some pretty stupid thmgs over the years. There was the pepper-on-mysteak comment after the APEC incident, or last week's pearl of wisdom regarding the American stance on Iraq C'A proof is a proof.. . and when you have good proof, it is because it has been proven."). But his comments on the anniversary of September 11,as aired on the CBC this past week, defintely take the cake. IfJean ChrCtien speaks for the prevailing attitude in Canada today, then I'm ashamed to call myself Canadian. Aside from being hrpocntical-recent polls show that the majority of Canadims don't want to take part in the war on terrorism, but they do expect the Americans to defend us if we are ex-er attacked -the timing of this
sun+or, and the now standard smashing of whichever windows are convenient. Good work guys. An article on the demonstration, which appeared on Indyme&a.org, read, "scarce mention [was] made of Netanyahu's policies and history," without considering that it was the protestors themselves who quite redirectedmediaattention from Netanyahu's acts to their own. If the protests had remained peaceful and Netanyahu had been allowed to give his speech, which was to include a call to topple the Palestinian authority, reporters might have questioned the morality of such a strategy or Netanyahu's role in Israel'spolicy of carvingup the West Hank and Ga7a Strip with illegal settlements Instead, we get reports of furniture tossing, pepper sprayingand the aforcmentimed holocaust survivor spatmg. If the man is a "war criminal," as Wassim Moukahhal, prcsidcnt of the Arab Students Association at McCA1Universitydescribed him, then let hun speak and fall upon his own sword. The public deserves the chance to hear his words and make their own decisions.By denyingNctanyahu the chance to speak and the public
the chance to listen and decide, the protestors damaged one of democracy's basic tenets (free speech) and have targeted the media's big guns squarely on themselves. Indymedia.org also reported, somewhat triumphantly, "In Montreal, a crowd of 500 demonstrators blocked Netanyahu's entry to Concordia Hall, forcing him to remain at his hotel.. . In Winnipeg that evening, Netanyahu's appearance at the Pantages Playhouse Theatre was also foiled by a hundred vocal protesters." This of course misses the entire point. \Flat it should read is: In Montreal, 500 demonstrators blocked a fellow human being from expressing his opinions (distastehl as they may be), later in \Vinnipeg his attempts at free speech were again foiled by a hundred vocal protestors. "There's no free speech for hate speech," a protestor told a journalist. But who decides what speech is hateful? Me? You?Jean Chrbtien? Five hundred people in the street? Quite a dilemma. Wouldn't it be safer to make all speech free and to allow people to listen, reflect and form their own opinions? Give the public somc credit. cedcT@impnnt.uwaterloo.ca

Behind the scenes of frosh week Imorint exolores the makmg of UW's orientation Andrea Kerswill IMPRINT STAFF
Now that froshweekhas oriented you to this awesome university, you may wonder how this week was actually planned. The truth is, it takes yearlong planning to provide you, the first-year student, with the activities you enjoyed.It takes over 900 volunteers to keep the week running. The week begins with two committees thatworkmtensively for eight months to get frosh week where it needs to be. The Federation Orientation Committee, better known as FOC, plans most of the week. Every thing from planning events to budgeting and management is planned by this committee. The 2002 committee consisted of a total of 44 members that made decisions about the events of the week. Another contributorto froshweek i~ the Provost Advisory Committee on Orientation, othenvise known as PACO 1his committee focuses primanly on the conduct of the? olunteer leader5 For eachgroup mFOC there is an executive on PACO that makes the finaldecisionsregardingthe events of the week FOC i a further broken down mto fourp,arts.There are two administrators, IIeather FitzGerald and Enn Moore, who act as troubleshooters for eachofthegroups. Their colleagues represent the six residences and six faculties. New to the committee this year,RrarriorFOC,xvhchcaters strictly to campus-wide events such as Monte Carlo Night and the toga.party. Each group is in charge of their
entircwcck. The committee begins to meet m mid-] anuary once the members foreachofthegroups arechosen. The executive that sits on PACO for FOC is the person who recruits and intermews possible candidates for those positions. BothHeatherFitzGeraldandErin Moore maintained that FOC controls theweek. "'l'he FOC members themselves put m so much time," said Moore. "They plan the week. The administration staff is just there for guidance, encouragement and to answer questions. It really is the FOC members that make onentationweek happen." The decisions are usually made from the end of October toJanuary. It is after this point that the committee begins tomeet onceaweek todiscuss planningand possible problems pertaining to the week. Moore pointed out that, "They P O C members] are experts in their areas and, before theweek even starts, thcyarc in charge of recnuung, hiring, and training their leaders. Therefore, during the week they are not only responsible forplanningtheactivities, but also distributing and assigning duties to all of their leaders and making sure everythingis covered." When January arrives, it is the responsibility of the groups to recruit their leaders. Eachgroup has its own separatewayofrecruiting,whetherit is through an application process, an interview process, or both. Moore pointed out that, "None of the committees are h t e d in the number ofvolunteers that they have and that even too many volunteers
sometimes is an issue for the FOC members. You have to keep the leaders busy, so the FOC members really have to sit back and think about howmany volunteer leadersthcy arc going to need at each of the events " Once thegroups have chosen their leaders, they must then assure that thcirleadershave what is called PAC0 training. P A C 0 training consists of four modules: principles of orientation, harassment and diversity, alcohol awareness and hazing and &tiation. It is within these modules that each leader is trained to build a strong foundation of leadership and understanding. FitzGcrald said, "The four sessionsaredesignedtocreateanawareness of what the leader's role will be and to show that there will be power differentialsas aleader. We introduce them to the resources they need to be an amazing leader." Each leader must complete training before frosh week. Each session runs about two hours in length during the evening and weekends. It is after all of the decisions, the programming and the meetings that orientation week is ablc to happen Both FitzGeraldand Moore acknowl edged that their volunteer leaders are the strong foundatto!! of the week Moore said, "The leaders that we get are soenthusiastic,theyreallymake the weekhappen fromdayone.Theybnng the students in, especially when they are really quiet and unsure of what is goingon, and encourage them topartisipate."

Exotic star fueled by magnetism Canadian and Amencan astrophysicists have confirmed the existence of an exotic type of star: the magnetar.This star is spinningthrough the heavens like a whirling dervish as we speak. The star, also known as AXP 1E1048. 1 5937, rotates once every six and a half seconds m d is approxunately20 kilometers across It is far denser than the sun and has a gavitational pull ten b11hon tlmes stronger. The star was first discovered in 1981, but scientistsdid not know whether itwas powered by fusion like the sun, or whether it was fueled by magnetism. However, on October 29 and November 14,two short bursts of x-rays estab hshed that magnetism is the source of energy for this exotic star.

The music industry marches on in its strange misguided ways Now, they're working on making a "impossible" to copy a CD to your computer and any other MPj player you mght have Of course, what this actually means (as per the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in the U S ) is that they don't want you to copy music at all I don't know about you, but I've been copyingmusic for years When I was a kid, I put a portable cassette player in front of the stereo speakers Then I moved on to maktng cassette copies of vinyl and I even borrowed records from people and taped them Now I move a lot of my CDs to hard-drive and play it using Mac's iTunes software Seeingas I bought the music, I feel no guilt In fact, historically there's this long-standmgpartof copyright law called "fair use"which quite explicitlyallows you to make copies of your own music for personal, non commercialreasons The idea behind this (which makes sense) 1s that you don't buy the CD, you

buy the music that comes on that medium and then it is yours to listen to. The CD costs ten cents; the music is worth paying the big bucks for and really, it's what the artists get paid for makmg. So I've paid the artist, now I get to hear the music. When the technology changes, I've already bought the music and I'm not that interested m buying it again. I don't want to buy it just so I can, well, listen to it. The big labels arc now desperatelytrying to make it impossible for you to copy your CD to your computer. Of course, this is ridiculous. If I can play the thing, I can digitize it and industrious folks will figure out a hack within hours of the latest technology being produced. This one may actuallywork out okay for the likes of you and me. About 20 years ago, some of the very same companieswanted to stop people from recording T V shows by banning the VCR. As you might have guessed, they lost that battle on the very grounds of "fair use." That is,people record TV shows for personal, noncommercialuse. Later, some industry guys wantcd to stop us from using cassette tapes to record music and they seemed to decide that copying was fine as long as a tax was placed on tapes. So, a's pretty hard to tell exactlywhat this industry believes, but we do know for sure that they want to control the music and maximize their profits. When it comcs to music, people make copies so that they can play the cassettem their car, they loan it to their friends and thcy buy it used. I don't actually know anybody who's nervous about getting caught. The music industry, on the other hand, should be worried about becomingirrelevant.
