Editorial

The best bit about this Hungappa (aside from my editorial of course) is we have an events calender for the entire term on the back cover!

Hungappa • Term 1 - Week 2 - 2013

The thing that strikes me the most about it is, “Week 5 - Final Fling” wow, 5 weeks and we are out of here for another break, just after we had almost 4 months off. Sounds about right, I feel like I could have got a PHD by now if we stayed at Uni for a decent amount of time. Its K CSU take all my money. The funny thing about this is, if we were here for ages I would be writing about that saying CSU ruined Christmas because I had class. I don’t mind so much, let’s just get it over and done with.

For those first years that might be reading the Hungappa for the first time, let me just say shame on you for missing the first edition and you should try and find a hard copy or read it online at the Rivcoll site ASAP. You are missing out. I just wanted to let you all know and remind those who might have forgot or are just generally too lazy, that you can submit stuff to the Hungappa for money.

Money is pretty cool, you can exchange it for material objects that will fill a temporary void inside you but will never make you truly happy. You can submit anything that can be printed, be it a drawing, comic or an article about absolutely anything, and we will pay you. It’s not that hard, I’ve just been typing and words come out onto the screen, if I can do it, you can do it too. Obviously not with the same level of genius and intellect but let’s get real, I wouldn’t expect that. I hope to bring back some competitions and fun games this year, some old favourites from last year and some new challengers for you all. You will all find out about these very, very soon. Tight and Bright this Wednesday. Everyone needs to attend. No excuses. Let’s make this year amazing event-wise. -Will Whiting -Editor in Chief -Hungappa@Rivcoll.com

Remedies For a Hangover • Add one teaspoon lime juice and a pinch of cumin powder in a glass of fresh orange juice and drink it twice daily until your hangover symptoms have subsided • Drink coconut water to replace fluids • Prepare a juice by adding one teaspoon lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon sugar and a pinch of salt in a glass of water, then add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda just before drinking it • Drink a banana milkshake sweetened with honey for a vitamin boost • Prepare some chicken soup

Hungappa • Term 1 - Week 2 - 2013

• Add the juice of one lemon to a cup of black coffee (do not add sugar and milk)

• Drink a tangy drink, such as tomato juice by adding one lemon juice to stop the urge for anymore alcohol


CSU STUDENT Recipe #1 Dish: Light Sweet Scones Cooking Time: 15 minutes | Serves: 10 Ingredients: 500g plain flour 1 rounded teaspoon bicarbonate of soda 2 rounded tsp. cream of tartar 1 teaspoon sea salt 125g unsalted cold butter, cubed 25g caster sugar 1 egg, beaten 275ml buttermilk or milk (plus extra for the egg wash) 50g caster or granulated sugar (optional) Directions: Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cream of tartar and salt into a large bowl. Using your fingertips, rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and mix well. Set aside about a third of the beaten egg and combine the rest with the buttermilk, then add to the flour mixture and mix briefly to combine into a moist dough. Place on a lightly floured work surface and knead ever so slightly to bring together, then press or roll out to a thickness of 2cm. Using the cutter (6cm cutter) cut out approximately 12 scones and place on a floury baking tray. Add about a teaspoon or so of buttermilk to the remainder of the beaten egg to make an egg wash. Brush the scones with the egg wash (and dip the tops in sugar if you wish) and bake in the oven for 10–12 minutes or until golden brown on top. Eat as soon as possible!

IMPORTANT INFO

Science Tech & Engineering Expo I am organising a science, technology and engineering expo on Wagga campus in

the convention centre from 9am to 3pm on the 24th of May this year. It is called Beyond School and is part of the Shell Questacon Science Circus tour of the region. The event focuses on local careers in fields related to science and engineering, in an engaging and interactive way. There will be trade fair style stalls and the Shell Questacon Science Circus exhibition. Best of all it is free for students! High school groups are booked in to visit the event, and I want to invite students from the university too. It would be great to have students from all courses; however I think the event would be most relevant to science, tech and engineering related students.

1. Doggy boot camp:

Hungappa • Term 1 - Week 2 - 2013

Not motivate enough to get your hooves in some shoes? Why don’t you use your dog as your personal trainer? Cesar Milan, ‘dog whisperer’ for American celebrities runs his dogs (a pack of 40!) for 4 hours every morning, with the help of a few staff. He then brings them home for a siesta. Spending his afternoons strapped in rollerblades, Cesar hoons around with 10 dogs at a time. Only in the evenings when the dogs are totally knackered does he attempt to train the dogs.

Try jogging with your pooch. Many dogs pull on a lead a walk. You’ll find that they move into ‘migration mode’ and simply trot beside you at a jog. This is how I get away with jogging two kelpies and a staffy/ lab without leads along the river. Of course it’s important to have basic come and sit as emergency backups. If your dog does pull on the lead simply change direction - the dog has to follow your lead = you are the Leader. (Don’t have a dog? There are plenty of neglected pooches out there. Ask your neighbour or friend if they’d

Get the Runs! like their dog to jog. Ensure you’re confident that you can control your chosen dog.) 2. Start slow and go go go: : it’s hard getting out of bed. This morning I struggled. Eventually I dragged myself (and my dogs) down to a particularly secluded part of the Bidgee river (bit between the gobba bridge and wiradjuri reserve – shhh! Top secret!). In the early morning light trees whispered wind-rustles, my two kelpies snuffled and waggled about, I had a scratch and secret chat with a friendly horse and returned home walking into a pink sunrise. Best start to the day! Have something to get out of bed for like that. In Animal Behaviour and Welfare (Ani. Sci) I remember being fascinated by the concept of ‘stereotypies’ – which I believe is an altered behaviour an animal will exhibit if it cannot act out it’s normal innate behaviour. E.g. Stressed dogs will lick the hair off their legs or even bite their own legs. Stereotypies are commonly seen in stabled horses e.g. weaving, crib biting, etc. – they are meant to spend all day with their head down eating grass!

What if human have stereotypies too? What if some of our natural behaviours require us to move a lot? To be outside in open spaces? To siesta in the middle of the day? Are all these mental illnesses and unhealthy habits a way of us trying to fulfil a natural innate behaviour that society doesn’t allow? My cure, assuming that we need regular exercise and outdoor action, is: • Run in ‘natural’ places (in wagga = pommigarlarna (pommy), wiradjuri reserve, anywhere along city side of river, willins hill). • Avoid road runs – if have to do early morning, late evening or weekends when traffic is quiet or non-existent. • Make sure you are present – listening for sounds, feeling temp/ground changes. • Run with your mood – had a bad day and feeling tired? Start with a walk. If you feel ok you may find yourself more inclined to run.


attempted not just one but two 10 day silent meditation courses”

So you’ve started slow... now the go go go bit? Set goals – a fun run, a google map run you’ve created, a distance, and extra electrical pole. Go the extra mile! If you apply this to your running and life you’ll see amazing positive changes. 3. Moving Meditation: I’m one of those crazy people who has attempted not just one but two 10 day silent meditation courses (Vipassana). They are really difficult and I must confess I’ve learnt a lot about myself in them. However, I feel that the lack of mobility and movement ‘blocks me up’ – mentally that is. I know I need to keep moving to liberate my mind. I recommend you use running as a form of meditation. Focus on being present. Not thinking off in circles

about your day or what you’re going to do. Stay present. I run with the mantra – ‘pain is inevitable, suffering is an option’. That mental attitude got me through my first half marathon last year. I found that in both meditation and running pain will come along at some point. It is your own choice to react and make a big deal of it. Or just let it go. Use running to let go of everything – daily stress, vanity, selfish thoughts, cravings for food/people or hatred about events or people. Just run to the rhythm your body sets. Happy joggin’!

Facts for Whatever Mr Tetch’s Biggest ‘Tip for Success’ at University: Baking is Science for Hungry People! Want to fit in better with your friends? Want to impress that girl over there? Want to procrastinate before starting that big assignment? Want to eat more frequently because you particularly enjoy eating and/or have sumo wrestler ambitions? Well I have a simple solution for you: LEARN HOW TO COOK!

Hungappa • Term 1 - Week 2 - 2013

Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I think everyone needs to eat. And drink. And listen to Radiohead. But most importantly – eat. Furthermore, I’m yet to meet a person who doesn’t actively enjoy eating. We need thousands of dollars every year in order to buy the food we need to survive (Saruman disagrees: Tens of thousands!). As a poor uni student, student of Hufflepuff and eating enthusiast, I really can’t stress enough how important cooking is as a life skill. I’ll outline a few times when cooking has been beneficial to me.

16

I have eaten well reasonably cheaply in self-catered with mainly meat 3 veg and chicken wraps (As opposed to other peeps, whom I frequently saw with Maccas bags). And I don’t need to tell you how much of an impact this will have on your health, especially anxiety towards study/exams. You will not achieve the results you want without adequate nutrition. I have won friends with a simple Mars Bar slice. Peeps will never turn down food - unless it is burnt, or tastes bad.

!

Even if it does taste bad, peeps will still think more of you because YOU GAVE THEM FOOD! If you are socially awkward and anxious about what people will think: Practise first! Make the meal beforehand with ‘guinea pigs’ (I call mine ‘Olds’ or ‘Parental Units’) to ensure success. With good friends, University will be a lot easier. Trust me. I have even pushed away the temptation of Reddit by making an apple strawberry pie. This is the last point I want to make: baking is an extremely fun activity, and can prevent useless time wasting. Whenever you are hungry, bored or procrastinating, think of all the fun you would have whipping up a cake. Or a slice. Or a crockenbouche. Never forget that procrastination breeds procrastination. Make yourself busy and bake a pie! So do yourself a favour. No matter who you are, or what subject you study*, cook a GOOD meal this week. I recommend Pizza if you’re new to the game. It’s easy to learn how to make and it encourages a social dining experience. It’s also reasonably healthy (if you do it right). Plus, you can save half of a pizza for the next day! Leftovers, learn to love them! In conclusion, I leave you with a few home truths about cooking. If the fish is still wriggling, you haven’t hit it hard enough with your rolling pin. Neptunium slugs should be of the purple variety. And always give your cat some of the raw mince if you are making Spag Bol. Your cat would do it for you! -Jervis Tetch
