They say you remember exactly where you were and how you felt the moment a significant historical event happened think 9/11 or Saddam Hussein’s execution. I vividly remember the moment that other Hussein made history by becoming the first African-American US President.

Bond M.D. 18 Puzzles

Two years later, we’re still wallowing in the pool of filth the previous Whitehouse administration left behind. As charming and intelligent Barack Obama may be, changing the world is no easy task with such a polarised political environment in the US. With the US Mid-Term Elections coming up soon, James Graham analyses said polarity as well as the apparent political extremism in the US.

Onto more lighthearted news, David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin’s new flick, ‘The Social Network,’ seems to be gathering countless critical praise. Speaking of polarisation, contrarion Jerry Numaka wrote a surprisingly negative review of the film. It’s certainly food for thought, and I am now more eager to see it than ever.

A Transit to Remember Dear Translink,

Are we to be subjugated to a life of hell with crazy bus drivers driving past that Oriental-decorated house three times? I have two words to say to you: it’s over.

Over the years I have been faithful to you. But I somehow feel that our indulgent love affair must come to an end. All you do is take, take, take – leaving me with nothing but smoke chugging out from your exhaust pipe. Look Translink, I don’t give the bus driver a hard time and I don’t trash the seats with scatterbrain graffiti, scrawled across by prepubescent minors wearing Eminem hats. I don’t act like the elderly couple who sat behind me pointing out the most obvious landmarks that we drove past and then reciting them back to each other. “Oh look, it’s a primary school,” said Granny. “Yes, a primary school,” Gramps replied. I was close to ending up in an Alzheimer’s ward after that trip. Further, I don’t ask other commuters stupid questions. The infamous elderly couple previously mentioned also plucked up the courage to ask me “what that funny white thing shaped like a sausage was?” That, my dear friends, is the Stadium.

Translink, your yellow magic school bus always attracted the worst kind. Creepy sleazebags, teenage dirtbags and elderly ladies who were so disproving of schoolies that you had to discreetly tuck your armband under your jacket whilst nodding fervently in agreement. Oh, how my dreams have tarnished over the years. We never had alonetime and you can’t expect to satisfy me by vibrating at the red lights. Routine gets old, take an odd turn next time and surprise me. Translink, we have had good times and bad times - but mostly bad times. I give you my $1.90 one way concession fare for what? So that you can give me a scenic tour of the Hinterland when all I asked was to go to Surfers? So that you can waste two hours of my time when it would take me 20 minutes by car? Ah, the fate of a person who cannot drive.

3

My beloved Translink, it’s you, not me, that’s tearing us apart. Clearly you are not equipped to deal with the complexity of our relationship. I always rocked up to our dates ahead of time, only to have you standing me up again and again. When will you learn that you need to show up for starters and on time too? I further disproved of your 7pm bedtime and your misrepresentative love signs telling me you should have arrived ten minutes ago. Oh the hardships of love, my yellow flubby-dubby bussy-wussy. Your incompetency has me trailing towards the door. I’m sure the next girl that comes along will be very lucky, so long as you train your drivers to drive. Also a tip, don’t always make her meet you at Pacific Fair or Robina Town Centre – be spontaneous. And so I step off your little stairs, my head held high. It’s been a long ride. But I’m listening to my GoCard for once. I’m going to go.


Interview with the Vice-Chancellor Article by Andra Nasrie and Jorja Wallace Interview by Benjamin Strick

With Bondies aware our Vice-Chancellor Robert Stable is retiring at the end of 2011, Scope thought it would be appropriate to sit down for a chat with the VC. Law student Benjamin Strick spoke with Robert Stable about his experiences at Bond, and what lies ahead for himself and the university. Q: How did you make the jump from being a doctor, to being the Vice Chancellor of Bond? A: I traded clinical practice for management when I became the Superintendent at Namba Hospital. In management, I could affect people’s lives in the bigger picture, whereas I could only focus on individuals with medical practice. I was very fortunate to come at a time when the university was at a troublesome period, and I was able to point the university in the right direction. Q: What are your top achievements at Bond? A: I certainly believe I have built upon the ethos and culture at bond where the student is the important person. This is one of the great joys of this job – working with students and watching their careers grow. Unlike bigger universities, you can easily keep in contact with past students because of Bond’s size.

I have thoroughly enjoyed building and maintaining relationships with students and staff. I feel I am very fortunate to have worked with such a great team in order to develop Bond and focus on the student experience. I was also able to lead the growth of the university from 2000 to 4500 students. This needed to be done for Bond to be viable. With controlled growth we were able to develop new programs for students. When I arrived Bond was about survival, and I was able to develop Bond’s image through the implementation of a new marketing strategy with the assistance of a passionate Bond alumni. Secondly, I was able to reinvest in the university. The fabric of Bond was quite rundown when I arrived but you can’t say that nowadays. I am quite pleased to have been able to lead a team that has totally redeveloped the university.

4

When I arrived Bond was a hidden gem. Very few people knew about it and one of my key goals was to change that. I have done a lot of work nationally and internationally to build the reputation of Bond. This is really important for students and their employment prospects, as well as recruiting new students and staff. Q: What do you make of the ‘elitist’ tag associated with Bond? A: Why should we worry about being an elitist? Queenslanders in particular are elitists, we like to win in football against New South Wales. I don’t think there’s a problem with not wanting to be part of the herd; there’s no future in your career this way.


Q: What about the idea that Bond students come from wealthy families? A: There is no concrete evidence for that. I know that about 70% of our domestic students access Fee-Help. There are also a few people from a less than fortunate background and leaving very successfully. If you come to Bond, it proves you have ambition and are willing to invest a large amount of money to be the best that they can be. I’m quite proud of the fact that Bond students want to be the best. You can call it wanting to be elite, but I would also call it not wanting to be mediocre and I celebrate that. Q: Do you see Bond growing closer towards the standards of universities such as Griffith and QUT?

on increasing class sizes and I’m aware of cases where professors only interact with their students in class. I think Bond’s low staff to student ratio will separate us from the rest. I have no doubt we will always maintain the lowest staff to student ratio in Australia. It will only get worse in other universities.

Q: What do you see for yourself in the future? A: I certainly won’t be looking for full time work. I have a couple of interests I want to pursue in health, my background. I am retiring as VC, but I’m not retiring from life.

Q: What do you see for Bond’s architecture school? A: I think it’s really exciting. We’re having a national design competition to choose the design for the new building. We have a great advantage of having an architecture school sitting next to the school of sustainable development. We will have the advantage of being able to mould the two together.

A: I think we will stand out. Other universities are more focused

Bondies thank the VC for his services to Bond, and would like to wish him the best for the future.


Politically Extreme James Graham

Barack Hussein Obama, the first Muslim Senate currently houses 57 Democrats, President of the United States of America. 41 Republicans and two independents. He is a socialist Kenyan set on destroying the American dream. With significant majorities in the House and the Senate, as well as control over These may seem like wild allegations, the White House, the Democratic Party and of course they are. Barack Obama is has been able to achieve significant legisa Christian who was born in Hawaii and lative milestones over the past two years holds moderately “left-of-centre” political – much to the chagrin of their colleagues views. However these “facts” seem to mat- across the aisle. The pejoratively named ter little, with recent polls indicating 55% “Obamacare” received all of zero repubof those surveyed think the President is a lican votes while the “Wall Street Reform socialist, 31% believe he is a Muslim and Bill” received a whopping total of three 24% don’t even think he was born in the Republican votes in each of the House country (a constitutional requirement for and the Senate. Presidential eligibility). For those of you who have been watching the coverage of the 2010 mid-term elections in the United States, you will know that the hyperbole surrounding the campaign has been extreme to say the least. To give you a bit of background, every two years the entire US House of Representatives, along with one-third of the Senate, run for re-election at the hands of their constituents. After a number of elections seeing consistent swings to the Democratic Party, the constitution of the House stands at 255 Democrats, 178 Republicans and two vacant seats, and the

One would generally assume that such iconic legislative accomplishments would translate into positive public approval – however, the opposite is true. The President’s own approval rating has dropped from a 67% high in May 2009 to 46% at the end of last October – a loss of about 1.2% of support each month. But then again, he is a socialist tyrant.

and create an environment where much of the talk surrounding the upcoming elections is centred on extreme political positions rather than productive discourse. Whether it’s the Tea Party uprising, or the increasing unashamedly partisan nature of Fox News’s reporting, this extreme rhetoric has spilled over into the electorate and has resulted in the pre-selection of some Republican candidates who can only be described as holding views that stray outside the mainstream. There’s Nevada Senate candidate Sharon Angle who says conservatives should turn to guns if they don’t get what they want this election, or there’s the self-proclaimed fiscal conservative and Senate candidate Marco Rubio from Florida who campaigns on refusing to add to the federal deficit, but who thinks the best way to stimulate the economy is the extend the Bush-era tax cuts (adding around $3.9 trillion to the deficit), or there’s pro-life Senate candidate Ken Buck from Colorado who is so extreme, he would criminalise abortion even in cases of rape or incest.

By the time this article is published, these people may no longer be candidates – It seems that these legislative accom- they may be Senators-elect. plishments have done little more in the short-term than rile up his opponents

So while this extreme rhetoric may be good for propelling someone with equally as extreme views into office – is it good for government? What happens when these candidates arrive at the Capitol and have to work with those with opposing views to their own? If these candidates win, their success will surely be based on their staunchly-held political views and their unwavering commitment to these positions – compromise will be out of the question. This campaign has focused so much on the elections themselves that there has been little consideration about what will actually happen afterwards. There seems to be such an undue level of focus on the 30 second sound bites that collaborative

discussion about how to best reduce unemployment levels and further stimulate private sector growth has become a distant figment of political imagination. Political extremism is not a good thing. It polarises government and results in pandering to the extreme fringes of the political spectrum. Extreme rhetoric detracts from positive and constructive debate about policies that matter, issues that affect everyone – not just in the United States, but all across the world. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear”, which took place last Saturday at the National Mall in Washington DC, offered a refreshing and satirical look at the ill-tempered politics

and fear-mongering rhetoric dominating the current political commentary. The rally had a turnout of more than 200,000 people who piled into the National Mall to hear what the two had to say about the current state of the nation’s political environment. In his closing words, Jon Stewart put the point well: “[W]e live now in hard times, not end times. And we can have animus and not be enemies. Unfortunately, one of our main tools in delineating the two broke. The country’s 24-hour politico pundit panic conflictonator did not cause our problems, but its existence makes solving them that much harder. The press can hold its magnifying glass up to our problems and illuminate problems heretofore unseen, or it can use its magnifying glass to light ants on fire, and then perhaps host a week of shows on the sudden, unexpected dangerous-flaming-ant epidemic. If we amplify everything, we hear nothing.” That’s right, if we amplify everything, we hear nothing. If everyone shouts, no one is heard and nothing gets done. Digging your heels in and espousing extreme and uncompromising views doesn’t achieve anything. It doesn’t add to discussion or help develop policy. All it does is divide people and cause unrest. Most of all, it irritates those who actually want something to get done; those who don’t care about partisan ideology but instead care about results; those who would rather see their representatives fighting for them than simply fighting with each other.

USA vs The Rest of the World

Sarah Cobourn

Can we beat them at their own game? The great country of America has introduced numerous things into this world, ranging from How I Met Your Mother to George W. Bush. One notable contribution is the game of basketball (Fun fact of the day: basketball was actually invented by a Canadian!) Anyway, to honour this great game and acknowledge the large injections of American study-abroad students, Bond Basketball has cultivated this USA v Rest of the World tradition. This friendly grudge match allows an All-American team & a team with Bondies from around the world to settle their differences on court. Although there are probably as many Bondies who know the full form of NBL as there are who know the middle name of the current Vice-Chancellor, the world teams have come out victorious past rivalries. But the Americans managed to steal the Crown, fight from under their nose in 101. To see if Bondie’s can put up a better fight make sure you come down and get into it! DJ Tollie of the Gold Coast Blaze will be commentating, with the Bond Cheerleaders unveiling a new routine! A shoot-out competition will be held at halftime with tons of prizes to be won.

The Social Network

Rise to Remain - Bridges Will Burn

“You’re not an asshole, Mark. You’re just trying hard to be one.” This statement, uttered by a lawyer, describes The Social Network quite well. It’s certainly not a great film, but it’s trying so hard to be one. While the movie was in its developmental stages, many ridiculed the idea of ‘a movie about Facebook.’ More surprising was the announcement that Aaron Sorkin (creator of the West Wing series) wrote the screenplay and David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en) were to direct. Things were going to get serious. Essentially, that was the movie’s downfall. While it turned out not to be a movie about Facebook but rather about its enigmatic creator, Mark Zuckerberg (brilliantly portrayed by rising star Jesse Eisenberg), Sorkin and Fincher defied expectations with a production that took itself too seriously. The problem lies with the procedural storytelling style. The story constantly cuts forward in time to Zuckerberg’s meetings with his lawyers and people suing him for whatever reason. As a result, the movie suffered from a lack of story build-up. This could have been avoided with a more in-depth study of the multi-dimensional characters in the movie. Indeed, the actors should be praised for their performances and dialogue deliveries in particular. Other than the wonderful Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake stood out as the slightly delusional and paranoid entrepreneur Shawn Fanning, creator of Napster. “You don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies,” the tagline reads. Of the 500 million who will friend request this film, I will be one of its few enemies.

4.7/10

One thing that immediately took my fancy, when listening to the Rise to Remain EP, Bridges Will Burn, was the singer’s screams sounded brilliant; quite similar to Randy from Lamb of God. On top of that, the singer had quite a good singing voice. It is great to find a band where the singer is able to multitask and take on both singing and screaming roles successfully. The music is well written and provides listeners with some great hardcore elements. However, it does not simply combine the flavour-of-the-month sounds that a lot of bands are using to gain quick notoriety. An example is in the title-track, Bridges Will Burn. The start is quite aggressive and gives the listener an opportunity to recoil and rethink their choice to listen to this band.

insight into the talented artists from Rise to Remain. The lead guitarist shows his skill, while not detracting from the overall feel of the track. This, in turn, makes for a much more enjoyable listening experience. The drummer lays down the foundations for the tracks and also exhibits his skill through fills and the breakdowns of each track. Rise to Remain are a great band and I am really looking forward to the upcoming festival season, as I have the opportunity to see them at Soundwave. Live shows are the bread and butter of the music industry, providing fans with an intimate setting of musical talent and enjoyment.

Regardless of what music you listen to, there is without doubt a festival or performance in the upcoming months that is tailored to your personal needs and requirements.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo If you are looking for a thriller, mystery and romance novel all in one, then The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is the book for you. The first in a series of three books by Swedish author Steig Larsson, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo centres around two central characters, Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander. Without giving too much away, Blomkvist is a journalist for a political magazine which he cofounded named Millennium. After losing a libel case and being ordered to serve three months in prison, Blomkvist’s reputation is shattered and he decides to step down from his position at Millennium. During this time, he is approached to write a pseudo family biography for a wealthy businessman, who actually wants Blomkvist to solve his niece’s missing person’s case which has been cold for 40 years. Throughout all of this a side story is also being told about Salander (beware of the graphic rape scene). Eventually their paths cross and Salander becomes a research assistant, and a lover, to Blomkvist. This book isn’t for the weak hearted – it contains scenes of rape, murder and incest. There is also a brief scene set in the Australian Outback. The latter books in the series focus more centrally on Salander – her bizarre family history, extraordinary computer-hacking skills, and her photographic memory. Sadly author Steig Larsson died after completing the trilogy, but nonetheless he has received many accolades for his writing. If you plan to read this book – which I highly recommend you do – it is best to read each book immediately after the other, as they all closely follow the storyline from the previous book.

8.5/10

The Perks of Being a Wallflower wall·flow·er [wawl-flou-er] –noun 1. a person who, because of shyness, unpopularity, or lack of a partner, remains at the side at a party or dance.

Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower is simply incredible. Told from the perspective of a teenager, Charlie, through a series of letters to an unknown recipient (as the reader you transform into this recipient), a story of adolescent uncertainty, awkwardness, experimentation and self-discovery unfolds. Charlie is an unusual freshman teenager who becomes friends with seniors at his high school: Patrick and Sam. From there the drug use, burgeoning sexuality and adolescent oddity comes to life through his letters, spaced out over a year. With a smattering of popular culture references, the novel is understandable, quick to read and relatable. I think we can all find some of ourselves in Charlie, or at least one of the other characters. Charlie himself is very observant, intelligent but also shy, and essentially a wallflower. His words are sometimes inspirational, idyllic and charming and his naivety and innocence is undeniably charming. Suffering tragedy throughout his young life, he wades through his tumultuous experiences with a rollercoaster of emotion; he sure does cry a lot. In any case, it’s hard not to like this book. However, upon completing it, I felt sad. Not to a point of tweaking my tear-ducts. Just a dull sadness: for two reasons. Firstly, it was over. I had become so attached to the characters that I knew I was going to miss them too much. And secondly, I was sad that I had become jealous of these characters. The friendships that Charlie has and his unique perspective on life almost made me feel left-out. I know it sounds silly to want to be a part of something fictional, but the experiences sound real and genuine and I couldn’t help but be captured by Charlie’s words and life. Nonetheless, the best way to sum up my feelings about this book is in the words of Charlie when he finished reading The Fountainhead: “It was a really great experience. It’s strange to describe reading a book as a really great experience, but that’s kind of how it felt.”

M.D.

By Michael Puhle

Big and beefy or light and lean?

involve light weights and a movement of the muscles from full stretch to contraction. Pilates or Yoga seems to be a winner for creating that long lean figure that embraces lavish curves and tones the hip region, not to mention it keeps the mind fresh and happy. Although confidence is a major part of attraction I’m afraid concentrating on pleasing yourself first is not the best course of action for us lads. The infamous V-Shape seems to be the flavour the ladies most enjoy and this will come from hard work whilst balancing your muscle groups. I have some good news though. Building arms as big as a normal man’s leg is not necessary, the rumour is that toned but masculine is much more the delight. Beware! Toned does not mean starving yourself to create a school boy body. Some muscle for the ladies to see and touch will work to your advantage much more than grooves brought about by lack of food.

Yes lads, let’s face it, it takes very little to catch our eye. An agreed upon fact known between men of all ages is that confidence in a lady is by far the most attractive trait available. Having a “Jennifer Hawkinsesque” shape and style is powerful, but if the level of beauty is matched by a level of insecurity then turn off is probably an understatement. I have recently become aware that, as a lady, working on your favourite body parts will first of all please yourself and just as quickly be From a brief expedition into the minds of the reciprocated by those you are trying to other half of our species I was enlightened. appeal to. Unlike men, when sculpting their feminine physiques women are all about personal sat- A quick survey informed me that the isfaction.

A few moves I have been told will work ated to benefit our easily pleased opinion. After enjoying a not so glamorous exit by way of the persuasive night time law enforcement at our favourite watering hole, this week’s topic hit me like a footpath to the forehead. Apart from the younger ladies trying to exploit the line, do females find these impressively oversized lads at the end of that velvet rope truly attractive? Even more to the point, what is it that the opposite sex is most attracted to, what do they look for and how is it accentuated?

Shoulders, Chest and Back will help create the “V” and just like what you would expect from me, keep the balance. Working your back will push your chest out just as much as working your front and building your shoulders will help increase size and round it all off. Performing on the back muscles will also keep your posture in check and offer a proud, cheeky confidence to your stance. I’m sure there are no surprises written above, but sometimes it is nice to be reminded that a) you are on the right track; or b) you might need a little push/encouragement in the right direction. Whatever your case and however you exercise the overwhelming lesson I have learnt from writing this article is that CONFIDENCE in yourself is the most attractive muscle you should flex.
