Bar Ops manager fired by Kemp O’Brien KIeran Green

nly three months and three weeks into his job of Bar Operations manager, Frazer Hadwin has been abruptly terminated by the Federation of Students. Keanin Loomis, VP ofAdministration and Finance for the Feds said that the Feds followed “the process of termination” through Human Resources. He refused to give specifics on the details of why Hadwin was fired, but commented that “if it got to the point of termination, then there were grounds.” Neil Murray, Director of Staff and Labour Relations in Human Resources, said that H.R. acts only as an “advisor” to the employer whenever a termination is proposed and does not control whether the termination does or does not happen. However, after further questioning he told Imprint that if H.R. disapproved ofthe termina-

Feds pull out of “week of actions9 by Melissa PdttikUUd

fter three weeks of planning, as well as an approval from the Student Council, the Federation of Students have pulled their support of all activities linked to next week’s “week of action.” Initial plans, put together by an organizational committee composed of members of the Feds, WPIRG, and Student Unite Power Action (SUPA), included a panel discussion, a round table and a silent march. The breakdown in communication among members of the organizational committee, and the mistrust resulting from this, Led to the withdrawal of Fed support. There were several main areas of contention, primarily with respect to the parameters and objectives of the events. Concern about the focus ofthe activities was expressed early by the Feds, primarilywith respect to

the fact that the week of action being planned by the organizational committee coincided with the Canadian Federation of Students’(CFS)weekofaction. UW is not a member of the CFS and has an informal policy of maintaining

these things. We were being forced to make all the compromises, to I such an extent that it would have defeated the purpose of the week.” Stewart does not deny that his actions on behalf of the Feds may have seemed inflexible. “I can

some enormous differences with respect to ideology and perspective, he felt that middle-ground could be reached among the members of the organizational committee. Itwasonlyafter the third meeting, held this past Monday, that Stewart began having doubts about the wisdom of involving the Feds in theweekofaction. Heexplains that “all kinds of issues came up, at the meetings like the ability to control the events. We wanted to

to settle on the organization of specific events. She argues that, “Robin’s dialogue was really poor He’s not an easy person to talk to, he had no sense of group dynamic, and didn’t seem to understand how to reach a consensus. He had a ‘my way or the highway’ attitude.” Davin Charney, representative of SUPA, agrees that the position of the Feds was an inf)exible one. “The Feds came to the table with things that they had to do, and they wouldn’t compromise on

that the Feds didn’t compromise a lot, we weren’t in a position to compromise.” He understands that both WPIRG and SUPA were uncomfortable about the restrictions that the Feds wanted to place on the events. But, Stewart argues, “part of my job is to be accountable, and I have to maintain my ability to work effectively with governments and administration. I feel that many of the more radical actions of the CFS do harm to the student move-

ment as a whole, and 1 was concerned about garnering negative media attention as a result of any affiliation to the CFS’ week of action.” Charny sees this, however, as part of the problem. He argues that the Feds are too concerned with maintaining “their reputation and connections. They’re always lookingup. But, we look the other way, and focus on the students themselves* The Feds aren’t interested in education or mobilizing the students they represent. They’re only interested in lobbying.” In spite of the fact that the Feds pulled support on the week, however,bothChameyandStewart are positive about the experience as a whole. “I’m proud that the Feds tried to do this, even though it didn’t work out,” says Stewart. Charneyagrees, noting that “I don’t think this sours the relationship between the Feds and the activists on campus.” WPIRG and SUPA are continuingwith the events as planned.

strong message was sent to the clubs at last Thursday’s As tudent Council meeting, where the council voted for the third time to uphold the new ciubs policy. Vice President Internal Shelley Flynn took this opportunity to address council one last time, with her belief that the policy was “intended in the best interests of all undergraduate students and the Federation of Students.” Flynn again asserted that the old policy did not protect the financial interests of UW students. She further argued that the old policy did not give the Feds “an effective tool to assist the clubs in their activities.” She agreed that a higherdegreeofconsultationwith the clubs would have “helped clear up the misunderstandings that have resulted.” She apologized for the the lack of consulation, adding that she was willing to ensure that future changes to the policy are made in consultation with the clubs. Flynn then outlined five plans ofaction,andaskedStudentCouncil tovote in favour ofone of them. Four of these options had been sent tocouncil members earlier in the week, and Flynn presented a fifth option for their consideration at the meeting. The options ranged from reverting to the old policy all the way to abiding to the new policy in its entirety, and thus refusing&b sta-

tus to any club that does not abide by the new pobcy’s clauses. After a lengthy debate, Option Five, the most flexible of the options, was narrowly passed by Student Council.

This option rests on reaching a mutual agreement about financial requirements this term, and comprises four major steps. First, another general meeting will be held to go over the new policy. Second and following this first meeting, all the changes suggested and agreed on by the clubs will be submitted to the Bylaw, Policy and Procedure Committee to be added into the policy. Third, the financia1 requirements are waived for clubs with off-campus national headquarters. Finally, the clubs will be asked to provide acceptable steps to take when settling the accounts of dissolved clubs. Two clubs were represented at this meeting, eachofwhich had an opportunity to ask questions of the council and present their objections. Representatives from both the Waterloo Science Fiction Club(WatSFic)andtheCIubThat Really Likes Anime (CTRL-A) took this final opportunity to formally present their own views. CTRL-A argued that it “finds the policy unacceptable, not just because we think it is impractical.. . and not just because it gives the Feds unprecedented power to dissolve clubs. . .but because this policy was passed without any consultation whatsoever with us, or any other club.”

WatSFic echoed these concerns, primarily focusing on WatSFic’s need to have immediate access to their money at all times. Robin Powell, President of WatSFic suggested that “we aren’t at a11prepared to abide by the new policy.” Both clubs called the new clubs policy draconian, in which the clubs are essentially assumed to be guilty until proven otherwise. Darcy Cassleman, a representative from CTRL-A, argued that the Student Council meeting itself was a display of the attitude that the Feds are taking towards the concerns expressed by the clubs. Cassleman explains that “the meeting itself was rushed, and not enough time was taken to rationafly consider the ideas put forward. The decision was made out of expediency because the Feds seem to have better things to do with their time, It is a shame because this issue is obviously of student interest, and the council couldn’t take the time to address their concerns adequately.” Flynn disagrees with this assessment, however, saying that “we held an emergency meeting to deal with this issue. I feIt that this was an open forum where clubs were free to speak and present their concerns.” Sheconcludes by noting that all members of the Student Council have been elected by the students and deserve, at some point, to be trusted to come to the right decision.

niversity students have a role to play in Canada’s international investment plans, according to discussions at the “Chancellor Summit of the Internationalizationof Investment,” held onThursday at Wilfrid Laurier University. Almost 20 CEOs from major Canadian companies gathered at Wilfrid Laurier University to discuss the internationalization of Canadian investment. Co-organizers, Scott Carson, CEOof the Office of Privatization, on leave from the position of Dean of WLU’s School of Business and Economics, and WLU’s Chancellor and CEO of Royal Bank, John Cleghorn were responsible for bringing this annual summit to WLLJ. The discussion itseIf, organized in three sections, focused on Canada’s participation in the global economy, the role of government in globalization, and the role of universities and their students in the future of Canada’s international economy. Specially selected students were present to ask questions of

theCEO’sand to present theirown views on the issues. Robin Stewart, Vice President, Education, attended as a representative of UW. When asked what specifically was relevant to UW students, Stewart answered that ‘*one issue that was mentioned a number of times is the brain-drain, that is the loss of scientific expertise to the U.S. The CEOs mentioned repeatedly that income tax reform was essential to preventing this.” “But my experience with brain-drain revolves around the issue of compensation. Corporate Canadaisjustnotwillingtoputout the money, so I asked why Canada isn’t offering competitive packages.” Stewart addressed his question to Colin Latham, CEO of Maritime Tel & Tel. “His answer was that it was his find belief that information technology salaries in the U.S. have been artificially inflated by the YZK crisis. He suggested that they were unsustainable and that they’re bound to drop,” explained Stewart. Hoops Harrison, President of the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA), had a different take on the discussions. He explained that “I attended with

the intention of engaging in an open dialogue with John Cleghorn to discuss the issue of national standards of education. Much to my surprise, he answered the question before I even asked about it, and he is in fact in favour of national standards that he thinks are needed to prepare Canadian students to compete globally.” Although the focus seemed at first to be on the importance of specifically technology related jobs, significant emphasis was placed on the liberal arts education. Scott Harris, Vice President, University Affairs at WLU, commented that “of course technology is more relevant to UW students, so I was disturbed at first with the obvious emphasis on technology. But I was relieved to hear the discussion change course, and to hear the CEO’s place a huge emphasis on a libera1 arts education. In fact, it turned out that most ofthe CEOs were from a liberal arts background.” Stewart agreed with this assessment, saying that, “I think students need both forms of education. Today, if you’re not computer literate, you’re just not literate.”

e appointment of the new President of UW was passed this past Tuesday night unanimously by the Senate and Board of Governors, as recommended by the presidential nominatingcommittee. President-Designate, David Johnston will give new meaning to the terms busy lifestyle and community service on campus. Johnston, 57, has more than 50 references to his community service on his resume and it has earned him respect internationally. Nationally his contribution has been recognized by being named a Companion of the Order of Canada- the highest honour given for public

Computer Science and the faculty of Applied Health Sciences. UW Chancellor Dr. Val O’Donovan and Chair of the Board of Governors and Paul Mitchell made the official announcement on Wednesday, October 7. “David Johnston will bring to Waterloo a remarkable constellation of attributes. I have no doubt that the Johnston era will be an exciting period for Waterloo, moving Waterloo internationally in unprecedented fashion,” said O’Donovan. When Johnston starts his sixyear term on July 1, 1999 he will be UW’s fifth president.

se t-vice.

Johnston’s education is in Law, with degrees from Harvard, Cambridge and Queen%. He taught Law ac Queen’s and Toronto and held the position of Dean of Law at Western. Currently, Johnston is a Law professor at the McGill Centre for Medicine, Law and Ethics where he held the position of Principal (President) from 1979- 1994. Fields of Johnston’s legal interest include computing and information, securities regulation, public policy and intellectual property law. Outside the world of academia he manages to keep fit by running daily and enters “one or two marathons a year.” Johnston was twice selected to the All-American hockey team while at Harvard and was the first non-American President of the Board of Overseers of Harvard. David and Sharon Johnston are natives of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Sharon holds a Ph.D. in Rehabilitation Science from McGill. Both are “looking forward to making Waterloo our home,” according to sin open letter to students. Christian Provenzano, who sat on the hiring committee, said “Johnston was a holistic. .* fit, his affinity wasn’t to any specific faculty, leading to an interest in linking them together.” At UW, Johnston will hold tenure in both the department of

he Students’ Society ofMcGil1 University (SSMU)are persisting with their legal proceedings at the Quebec Court of Appeal, seeking tuition equality after losing their lawsuit a year ago. Beginning last September, non-residents of Quebec have been hit with a fifty percent fee hike in accordance with provincial legislation. The Quebec Provincial Ministry of Education instituted differential tuition fees in the Spring of 1997 in order to regulate and economically validate increasing numbers of out-of-province students. The SSMU, led by VP External Affairs Jeff Feiner, and represented by constitutional lawyer Guy Bertrand, will deliver their written arguments and documentation by October 15. Until a decision is made, undergraduate non-residents are paying $3168.30 a year at McGill, compared to $1668.30 for Quebec residents. Differential tuition reaches beyond the scope of individual equality and provincial jurisdiction into a volatile nationalistic dispute. The issue of Quebec as a distinct society is complex, and the philosophical differences of federalism versus separatism will complicate the SSMU’s appeal. “Quebec, without saying it, no longer considers itself a part of Canada,” says Bertrand, pointing out that separatism has even infiltrated elementary schools. “They don’t teach Canadian history anymore, but the history of Quebec.” Nor do they fly the Canadian flag, but the Fleur de Lis. Nor do

they sing the Canadian national anthem. The list goes on. The SSMU believes that the mobility rights of all Canadian citizens should supercede petty provincial politics and economic pretenses. As Bertrand puts it, “we mustn’t stop at the numbers, but at the principles.” The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms expressly outlines these principles. “Every citizen of Canada and every person who has the status of a permanent resident of Canada has the right (a) to move to and take residence in any province; and (b) to pursue the gaining of a livelihood in any province.” The Charter does provide for possible exceptions, stating that the aformentioned rights are “subject to any laws or practices of general application in force in a province other than those that discriminate among persons primarily on the basis of province of present or previous residence.” The SSMU considers the obviouslydiscriminatory grounds of the differential tuition fee policy an affront on Canadian equalityand unity. Bertrand is, himself, nostranger to the separatist cause. A I%qz&e for years, Bertrand was even a candidate for the succession of Rem5 Levesque after his death. Four years ago, however, before the Quebec Referendum, Bertrand decided to focus his considerable political and legal background on unity, rather thancontribute to the “s~~ti&collL~@” ofthe Parti Qu6becois. “Canada has enough regional differences,” Bertrand explains, stressing the importance of courtesy among the provinces. “WC have to learn to live together.”

n response to criticism that engineers are too inwardly focused, a group of community-oriented engineers have spent the month raising money for a great cause.

On Saturday October 3, fifty engineering students volunteered their time to put on CircusEng for physically and developmentally challenged children at the Rotary Children’s Centre (RCC) in Waterloo. With support from both UW’s Federation of Students and all the various departments of Engineering, CircusEng, a day with a circus theme, was designed for the families who use the centre. Ineluded in the festivities were clowns, buskers, crafts, face painting, games, fun, and a barbecue lunch. The entire event was free for the families and was enjoyed by everyone. Some of the highlights included the Beirdo Brothers, Acapell-Eng, Oli the Busker with his unicycle and talent for juggling fire, and of course the clowns. The success of this event was measured in the pride of the children as they showed

their parents the crafts they had made, and their laughter as they learned how to juggle with the clowns. The Centre incorporated this event into their annual fundraising campaign, which kicked off a week earlier. The Engineering Society and RCC are both excited to continue their new relationship and look forward to fundraisers and events of this kind in the future. On Wednesday, September30, the Engineeringsociety held a fundraiser for RCC at the Bombshelter. A raffle took place all night long, and POETS beer (the new engineering beer) was sold for the first time at the Bomber, with proceeds from its sales being donated to

Another $100 was added to this figure by local children’s entertainers at the event on Saturday.

CircusEng is looking forward to seeing this new annual event, as well as our relationship with RCC, grow over the next few years.

ecognizing our traditional treatment of Canada’s Native peoples and granting them self-g&&nment is key to helping alleviate tension between French and English Canada, argued Frank Cunningham, Professor of Philosophy ae University of Toronto. Last Thursday, Cunningham gave a talk entitled “Will Canada be the Next Bosnia?,“, and suggested that Canada could fall under the affliction of violence that has plagued nations such as Bosnia and Northern Ireland. Although the history and theory on violent confrontations and their threat to democracy proved interesting but dry, the final conclusion was unexpected. Cunningham argued that violent confrontation between Quebec and the rest of Canada would fall under the “combustion” paradigm rather than the “lid-on-thepot” theory; that is, violence is not boiling, waiting to get free and scald our national unity. Rather it could explode when a combination of elements has just the right mixture and is ignited by a spark. Parts of these combustibles are economic inequalities and the absence of channels for peaceful resolution. In the absence of co-operation, we resort to co-ordination. Large groups co-ordinate differently, identifying language, cuiture, religion, etc. Cunningham suggested this breeds ethnic nationalism, which is especially dangerous when channels for resolutions disappear. A prime example in Canadian political history occurred as Quebec separatists became frustrated when the supreme court told them they were not allowed, legally, to leave. The ties got iore obvious when Cunningham elaborated on the differences between land and territory. When arguments are over territory, neither sharing nor co-operation is possible. Land, however, signifies geographical information, not possession. The Cree

inNorthern Quebec, whoclaimed thar they would have remained with Canada if the separatism had won the referendum two years ago, could be what “sparks” the violence, he argues. This confrontation over “territory” luckily did not happen. But it could, so what should we do to diffuse this high-test mixture that could explode in our country’s face? Cunningham’s suggestions, indeed the essence of the entire presentation, were quite simple. Politically, we must come to grips with the historical treatment of native people in Canada. We should begin by fully implementing the recommendations of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal People, which recommends selfgovernment for native communities.

Cunningham saw the native issues as more important than existing Canada-Quebec tensions, and working through the native issue could provide some insight intoa model of shared sovereignty and territory. The conclusions he arrived at, however, are arguably a win-win situation. By implementing rhe recommendations of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal People through self-government and grants of massive monetary compensation and land titles, we fail to breakdown barriers between French and English Canadians. We will nevertheless improve upon the condition of life for the country’s most: important visible minority. The lessons we learn, hopefully, will be transferable. I

Before you set off for home, hearth and overcooked turkey, take a moment to ransack your pantry for the less fortunate (Remember, after OSAP runs out in mid-November thanks to the fabulous Moosehead marketing department, you may be among the growing ranks of impoverished students). The Food Bank of Waterloo Region is once again holding its annual Thanksgiving food drive, hoping to gather a total of 298,000 pounds of non-perishable food items.

The Food Bank provides almost 300,000 meals a year through various local shelters and charitable organizations. Food Bank Executive Director Sean Strickland explains that “the Food Bank has neveryet fallen shortofits target,” and continues to fill an important shortage in the area. The increased cost of living, high unemployment, and recent cutbacks to social assistance programs, have increased the need for help. Strickland expressed concern about a fifteen percent drop in donations since 1997, although he is “still hopeful that the community will respond,” Donations are accepted at local fire halls and supermarkets, as well as at the “Onkel Hans Food Drive at the Oktoberfest paradk onThanksgiving Monday.

Guelph’s Bullring shut down by Christine Murphy spt?c/d tu /mpnmt

T

he Bullring was a popular bar on campus at the University of Guelph. Unfortunately, this once popular spot was suddenly closed down earlier this week after an emergency meeting was held by the Central Student Association (C.S.A.) who slammed the door closed. Contioversial complications had arose between the C.S.A. and the University Center (UC). Up until this incident, the C.S.A. had contracted the Bullring out to the UC under the condition that the UC followed a few specific clauses set out by the C.S.A. One of these clauses specified that all prior employees from the last term were

to be granted an interview at the beginning of the next term when the hiring process began. On one of these designaed days, a former employee had come in for her interview, but was denied her chance by the manager, who stated that she was an “assertive woman.” When confronted, the manager in question admitted he broke the clause but says it was because the girl brought her child to the interview with her. Due to this, and possibly other incidents, the C.S.A. realized that they had little control over what was going on at the bar. Once this was realized, an emergency meeting was called by the CSA to decide on what to do with the bar. Although no one was available to elaborate on the issue, the sign on the door says “Sorry we’re closed, please come again.”

olding the job I do, I am exposed on a daily basis to the writings of the students of this university. I have become painfully aware therefore, that a good many students simply can’t wrr’te. Now, I know that, having announced my topic, numerous grammar hawks out there will be on the hunt for errors in this column. Let me clearly admit right off the start, then, that I do not have perfect grammar. As anyone who has everproofread one of my essays (ie. my mother the Latin teacher - she hammered certain grammatical points into my head over the years, and many thanks to her for that) will attest, I am all-too-frequently guilty of dangling participles, incomplete sentences and other such faults. Despite my infirm grasp of these grammatical concepts, I can safely say that I do know when touse anapostrophe in the word “its” and when not to. It’s amazing how many students do not. Also unbelievable is the fact that so many still do not know the difference between “there,” “ their” and “they’re,” or between “your” and “you’re,“And every once in a while I run across someone who mixes up “our” and “are.” These are such basic concepts there is no way that people should be making these mistakes in high school, let alone at the university level. Another basic concept which seems to pose a large problem for writers here is verb tense agreement. When one starts to recount a story in the past tense, one usually should being using a verb in the present tense in the very next sentence. I’ve been thinking of creating a new drinking game -take a swig every time someone abruptly and inappropriately changes tense, I could get blazingly drunk with some of the article submissions we get here at Imprint. Beyond the grammar issue, however, Iies a far greater flaw in student writing so many seem to lack any talent for flow. The most important skill in writing is to organize, to take the things that one has to say and order them into a logical train of thought. Each idea should build upon the previous ones, leading finally to a logical conclusion. A story must have a flow from beginning to end. I see so much student writingwhere all the pieces have just been slapped together in no particular order. The ideas are put into blocky paragraphs that have no relation to the ones before or after. It is like building a wall with bricks but no mortar-you havea wall, but it falls apart again at the slightest push. It’s hard toputa finger on the reasons for our rhetorical deficit. Is it because of T.V.? Is it from reading too few books? Personally, I place a pile of blame on the Internet. E-mail has changed the way we write to each other. It’s just too damn convenient. I know how lazy I am about grammar, punctuation, and simply organizing my thoughts, in the the E-mails I send.. . and I’m an editor! Just browse the web for an hour for a sample of some of the worst writing you’ve ever seen. Even the spelling is atrocious. How to fight the trend: my mother always recommended learning some Latin. The grammatical complexities of that language will give you new insight into our own. Take a critical thinking course to improve your style. Of course, reading more books (not just text books) never hurts. Finally, practice makes perfect - come write for Imprint. We are not here for those who know, but for those who want to learn.

Starting to get Fed

up

The problem with the Feds

0

ur student clubs face a serious challenge to their ability to serve their members and the university community. The Federation ofstudents voted in a new Clubs Policy in the second week of summer exams (while many students were eitheroffcampusorwritingexams)without seeking feedback or advice from the clubs -those affected by the new policy. Thankfully, on October 1, 1998, the Executive Council admitted their error. Can we correct that error? VP Internal Shelley Flynn assured the clubs that changes can be discussed and the policy can be amended - by the Policy, Procedure and Bylaw (PPB) Committee. However, the Committee replied that it can not change the “spirit” of the policy, only the wording. Unfortunately, some clubs disagree with the “spirit” in particular so, despite Ms. Flynn’s promises, the Committee can do nothing. OnlyanamendmentfromtheStudentCouncil can correct the error and they-in discussion and voting - have made it clear that they are not interested in amending the dubious “spirit” of this policy. What is the “spritual” sticking point? Financial independence. Despite their statement in the new policy that the Feds “reaffirm the rights of students to form associations without undue interference,” the

Even if the clubs wanted to follow the policy, it is not clear how they would comply. The financial section is open to widely varying and contradictory interpretations, including the possibilities that all the monies will be shared equally amongst theclubs (regardless of size or need), or that no club can spend more than the Feds sponsorship amount (regardless of their ability to raise funds). The rest ofthe policy is equally open to debate and interpretation. . The situation, as Ms. Flynn stated on October 1, is blackand white:clubs must turn over their money to the Feds or the Feds will be defrauded. There is, she claims, no room for debate. At that same meeting, Councillor Ron Tsang claimed that policies are drafted topunish the guilty, not protect the innocent. So, in its rush to punish a few unnamed wrongdoers, the Feds have declared all clubs suspect and therefore subject to these rules. There is no protection for the innocent; no appeal procedure to deal with any financial disputes, The Federation of Students is the court of first and last appeal. Why did the Federation of Students unilaterally remove the clubs’ fiscal independence? Why did they vote on an obviously unfinished policy open to so many interpretations? And why did they act with-

There is an Arts mascot To theEditor,

I

suppose there’s nothing terribly wrong in poking a little fun at the various Faculties from time to time, even it means, in this case, perpetuating the ‘unemployable’ myth tagged onto Arts students. However, the mischievous ignorance exhibited by some of your respondents when asked to propose an Arts mascot (suggestions included a bum on the street, a waiter, a couch, an unemployment line) was actually exceeded by that of your questioner. You see, Arts already has a mascot: Porcellino the bronze boar, who rests outside of the Modern Languages Building. He’s not as noticeable as the giant pink tie but Porcellino does allow you to rub his nose for good luck.

To the Editor,

W

hile reading Kieran’s editorial regarding the Fed Clubs debacle, I got to thinking. . . It occurred that if, under some’bizarre set ofcircumstances, the Federation of Students unilaterally decided to legislate away the financial independence of Imprint because the Imprint staff were deemed too incompetent or too unscrupulous to be trusted with that responsibility, I am certain that this editorial page would be screaming bloody murder for months. I am equally certain that some well-meaning fellow on campus would pipe up, saying, “What’s all the fuss about? It’s onlyImprint! Surely they have more important things to worry about.” It’s all a matter of perspective, I guess.

may be afforded the luxury of “gainingan education for the sake ofenrichment,” not everyone is so fortunate. There are many ways to better the world: building bridges, designing more efficient cars and producing software that helps us write “coherent, grammatically correct sentences.” These are just a few examples of how engineers are “Bettering the world.”

A

few words from an Engineer

A

s an engineering student at UW, I’m appalled at what I’ve been reading in theImprint lately. No, it’s not the comments of the amz+ students that is appalling; rather, it is the sheer ineptitude that the engineers employed in defending their treatment of our mascot. There is an easy solution for what to do with the Tool: build a nice secure glass case and place the wrench inside it. Every time it is paraded on campus there is the inevitable inter-faculty outcry, because of the behaviour of the engineers. It is because of this behaviour in the past that has resulted in the “house arrest” that the Tool faces on campus, and it will be the behaviour of the engineers in the future that will lead to the Tool’s undoing. Someone once said that those that refuse to learn from history’s mistakes are doomed to repeat it; the issue of taking pictures of the Tool and the Tool-bearers is another example of the Engineering Society refusing to address the root cause of this problem. Here’s a thought kids: apply a little problem solving, the kind that we learn in school, to the problem of the Tool, rather than falling back on a practice that is more beer-fueled than traditional.

to help and guide them, but these relationships tend to be very controlling, often encouraging people to break off relatiqnships with their family and friends. A 20/20 ABC News report in 1993 stated: “We’ve heard frightening s tories from dozens and dozens of people who have left the International Churches of Christ. They say that they felt exploited and lucky to have escaped with their minds and their lives.” . The ICC has been plagued with problems since its inception about 20years ago. The group was banned from Boston University, where its activities originated, and a Time article in 1992 noted that: “Universities that welcome all manner of oddball groups on campus actively seek to curb these evangelists. Some defectors who number half theconverts since 1979-charge that the church has done them psychological or spiritual harm.” The ICC believes that only people who are baptized in their church are saved, but the Bible clearly states: “That ifyou confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9 - NIV) ManywhoarepartoftheICCdon’t realize what they’re involved with, but I would encourage everyone to seek out the truth, for: “[God] wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:4 - NIV) Look at http://members. aol.com/djrtx/resource.htm for more information, or e-mail me at wchagey@uwaterloo.ca May you know God and may He bless you.

don’t vocally hear Funk Flex on his album, he is in each song, scratching and mixing, that’s the main purpose: he’s a DJ (disc jockey) not a lyricist. Ifyou’re looking for lyrics then look to Canibus but as for scratching, production and quality look to Funk Flex or Kid Capri. Many things he wrote about were, in essence, repetitious of what we know about the biz. If he needs a lesson, I can help but please tell this writer to pick up a mic check, rap pages or even a source and get a clue. The world of hip hop is larger and more expressive than just the music. It’s a culture, it lives, it breathes, it suffocates and it grows (when permitted). If some people cannot recognize everything involved and aid its development then try harder by any means necessaryor step. Hip hop needs support where ever it can find it but if you’re not helping, get out of the way. At least this writer is trying, for that I give him thanks and tonnes of respect. It’s a learning process which few know, and even fewer have the patience to learn. -

eing a first year student, I take pride that I can walk into the SLC, scoop up the most recent copy of Imprint and hear what my fellow peers have to say about the world. To my surprise, it contained many sections which are of value and interest to the UW students. One of these sections is the music review portion of our respectable Imprint, which brought a tear to my eye. And yet another tear fell when I saw the large range ofmusic which was being reviewed. I found it interesting to hear about other valid likes and dislikes of the UW student body. I came to the reviews of Canibus and Funkmaster Flex 111, I must say I was sorely disappointed. The writer obviously does not understand or know the history,

his is my second letter on behalfofall the hip hop heads at UW. I, once again, was browsing through the music review section and noticed the review a gentleman did on the latest release from Ms. Lauryn Hill. The music review section is meant to analyze an artist’s latest release which cannot be done if you do not appreciate what the artist does, That was apparent with this writer. What was written was uncalled for and inappropriate. If you don’t appreciate the artist then don’t, please do not, review it. You asked someone to come in and review Monifah’s album, and some kind soul came in and did just that. You should have extended the same courtesy for the beautiful Lauryn Hill. She put her soul into that album and deserved better than that. If you can’t appreciate the music then leave it alone. If you have no prior knowledge of an artist, research it or leave it alone. Believe me, if you put an ad out, someone will come and review it for you, Better yet, get someone, like me, on staff to review it. She did not deserve to be verbally trashed like that, even if it is just a school paper. If you’re going to review an album, know that art-

In defense of Lauryn Hill #2

I

‘m writing in response to a CD review in Vol21 Number 11 of the Imprint. It’s regarding the Lauryn Hill CD, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”. I’ve CC’d this email to MathNEWS, the reasons for which will become apparent: Eric Braiden’s review is erroneous. “Former Fugees vocalist Lauryn Hill releases her first solo...“’ *‘Once a Fugee, always a Fugee proclaims Hill, who pooh-poohs the notion that the group is unofficially defunct.” “Hill raps, ‘My emancipation don’t fit your equation/I was on the humble/You on every station,’ a lyric that’s been widely interepreted as being directed at Jean [WyclefJ -a charge Hill denies.,. ‘None of the songs on this album are as literal as everybody wants to take them” Entenhnrnent Weekly,#452 October 2,1998. Unfortunately, it seems Braiden’s review is centered more around some sort of perceived jealousy/cash-grab gimmick than offeringan opinionated view of what he’s heard from the CD. I know it must be hard to make sure that facts are presented in op/ed pieces, but maybe music reviews should stick to the music. Perhaps Stephanie Feltham’s review of the Squirrel Nut Zippers is a better example of a review. Apparently, this kind of thing has happened in the past as well as with the review ofHGuoN~~ by the Beastie Boys. An article was printed in mathNEWS about it I’m sure they’d be happy to provide you with the story if you haven’t seen it.

“right to lifers” that if RU-486 was to be sold in this country, that their stores would be bombed by those in the movement. That same movement wants to take the rights away from women to control their bodies. The funny thing about it is this: most of them are men. Catholic clerics and fundamentalist leaders of all major religions have allowed men to control women for two millenia. Isn’t the world a better place because Catholicism controls Brazil, where unwanted kids murder each other in the street for fun? Isn’t it great that countries aroundthe worldcontrolled by religious fundamentalists are some of the most over-populated, povertystricken, and destitute that the world has ever seen? If “right to lifers” are so supportive of life at any cost, why are they not lined up at the Children’s Aid Office and opening up their homes for those unwanted children? Instead, they parade in front of Chapters in Waterloo with pictures of dead babies on their signs, As a practicing physician for over 24 years, I can tell you that the world is a more tolerable place because of the rights that women have earned to control their own body. Why don’t you ask the women in Romania what it was like under their totalitarian regime in this century? Why not move to Saudi Arabia, where women can’t drive cars, or run businesses?Theycertainly have a lot less rights than you do. The women of the world have earned their right to control their own bodies.

FORUM

Granted abortion should not be used for birth control, but sdme girls, and you might be one of them, may need to have that option some day. Why don’t you ask the police who mop up after yet another murder of an infant or toddler by their mothers or fathers whether those women were ever offered a choice? Right to Life counsellors, some of your friends perhaps, may have spoken to people about keeping their precious fetus, but will they be around at the funeral, if those parents are unfit to raise that child? I doubt it very much. So, Brenda, everything has two sides, and you only presented one of them.

Chipping away at the stone

H

ere’s a classic question: “If God is so good, then why does he allow pain and suffering?” I’ve heard some very logical and well-thought-out, deep, theological answers to this but, to be honest, I don’t claim to be all that deep and theological. Nor do I claim to have all the answers. So, I’ll try to explain it in the simplest way I can, and offer a few thoughts to the age-old question. Aristotle commented once about how the gods loved agood joke, popularizing the theory that if there is a god, he is a cosmic joker that enjoys messing around with our Iives. I agree that God has a good sense of humour, but not at our expense. When bad things happen in our lives, there is always a purpose in them. We can choose either to look for it, or become bitter. Sometimes I think God works like a sculptor in our lives, Francois-Auguste Rodin, whenasked how he managed tomake his remarkable statues said, “I choose a block of marble and chop off whatever I don’t need.” Similarly, regarding his famous statue of David, Michelangelo said, “I saw David through the stone, and began chipping away at everything that was not David.”

The pain we experience can serve to help us shed the pettiness that keeps us from fully being who we are. But we must choose to allow it to. “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy” (Martin Luther King Jr.). If everyone lived in perfect circumstances, it would be impossible to define the ones with character. It is the most difficult situation that we realize what we are made of. The biblical story of Job illustrates this. When he had everything he wanted, he was able to praise God. When his children die, he goes broke, he gets sick, and his wife tells him to “Curse God and die.” He refuses to, and instead says, “When God sends us something good, we welcome it. How can we complain when he sends us trouble?” (Job 29, 10) Consider a diamond, one of the most valuable stones known to humans. It starts off as an ugly, black piece of coal. Only through intense pressure, and a tremendous amount of time does it begin to sparkle. Pain is inevitable. But it’s just as inevitable, that God can use it for good. (Romans 828)

An army’s life for me Big businessbeatsdemocracy

C

anada’s democracy is eroding as a result of continued deregulation of the economy. Citizens, organizations and even governments within Canada have less democratic power today than 30 years ago. Systematically, our elected officials have given up powers to govern through the creation of international agreements such as NAFTA. These agreements have given “big business” tremendous powers and rights - including the right to sue a government for inhibiting the company’s ability to make a profit. Thirty-years ago, businesses generally waited on the sidelines while negotiations unfolded. Today, business leaders are writing these agreements. NAFTA and the proposed Multilateral Agreement on Investment were written, for the most part, by the Business Council on National Issues (BCNI). Business writing agreements to benefit business -or society (or is there a difference?). Does this mean “Big Business” is taking over Canada? Thank heavens - some may argue!! Let businesses run the whole flippingcountry! Business understands the realities of the harsh world ofgIobalization. Only business will balance budgets, be efficient and innovative enough to solve all our problems. Laissez-faire capitalism holds that the cot+ mon good is best served by the uninhibited pursuit of self-interest. This ongoing pursuit, however, has not benefitted Canadians

in general, nor most of the world. United Nations findings state that over the last 20 years the gap between the wealth of rich countries and poor countries has doubled. Canada was recently scolded by the United Nations for its appalling level of child poverty. The number of billionaires in 1996 werecollectively worth more than the bottom 50 per cent of the world (over three billion people). This collection ofwealth is due in part to deregulated economic markets. There is a growing movement, however, that challenges the concept of letting the free market decide what kind of society we want. George Soros, a multi-billionaire thanks to financial markets, recently described what he calls “The Capitalist Threat.” The increasing spread of market values into all areas of life is “endangering our open and democratic society. The main enemy of the open society., . is no longer the communist but the capitalist threat” (1998). Soros argues that competition also needs cooperation. Such co-operation would incorporate the idea of allowing citizens to determine what kind of country they want to live in. Such a country would not have students pepper-sprayed when they stand up against corporate interests. So what kind ofcountry do we want to live in? We have allowed control - democracy - to slip from our fmgers. It is not too late to claim it back.

I

‘ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I love living in Canada. We have a pirate for a Prime Minister, Hop-A-Long Bouchard as the Royal Opposition, Buddy Holly stirring the pot on all sides, OHIP (at least for now), mountains, fresh-water lakes, most ofNORAD and both the world’s tallest free-standing building and the world’s largest mall. However, we do have our downs. We have our dollar pretending to be at Canada’s Wonderland, the RCMP pretending to be the LAPD and the Van Doos Airborne pretending to be Bill Clinton and Dirty Harry at the same time. Which brings me to the biggest problem I have with this grand country of ours: The Canadian Armed Forces. The Canadian Armed Forces is, to use someone else’s line, “like Switzerland without the knife.” The troops have nothing for them, equipment or money-wise and what equipment they do have is either falling apart or not enough to help. Example 1: the Labrador helicopterthat went down, killing all six crew members inside while it was on route tocanadian Armed Forces Base Greenwood, Nova Scotia. Right now, investigators are searching to see if the pilots had some sort of disease or health problem that could have made them eras h, as well as to see if the debris will give clues as to what went wrong. Well, I’d like to shed some light on this for the investigators. Maybe, just maybe, it wasn’t the pilots, or weather, or trees, or any act of God. Maybe it was the fact that the Labradorfleetwasmadein 1963and thatall the engines needed to be replaced, lest they fail out. Already there are reports ofmalfunctionsand required engine upgrades, and we

are shelling out millions of dollars to fix these problems instead of buying newer vehicles. Are there any smart people in the military brass? Can they not see the patterns of costly repairs and upgrades and understand that changing over from the 1963 Labrador to another helicopter probably made in 1975 will not help?Theyoverlook the big picture for the small picture, the one that says that some duct tape will keep that rotor on for another year, at least. And while we’re on this subject, why are our enlisted men who wear their uniforms with pride going home and changing into McDonald’s uniforms? Because they are not getting paid ,enough to live. Who has ever heard of that? These are men that we expect to protect us, to die for the country, and we don’t give them anything to help them. No good equipment, no warm quarters or even any proper housing at all, and now no money to buy food for their families or themselves. Of course, this could make our army more deadly. Not becauseofequipment or training, but because they are desperate and hungry. They see the other side as food, That’s enough to make anyone fight more. My plea to the military is this: get new equipment now. Give our fighting men something useful. No enlisted man should have to be a security guard in his spare time, and no country should have one submarine less than the Edmonton Mall. And personally, if I ever fly in a plane and it crashes and they have to send out Labrador rescue helicopters to save me, I’d rather walk. I’d have a better chance of making it out, broken leg and all.


Breast Cancer Awareness Month

by Usa Johnson fmpn!htsdW and Punam Ahuja speda/ to /mpni7t

D

id you know that all women are at risk of breast cancer, no matter what age? So if you think that it could never happen to you, think agam. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women. As such, October is acknowledged as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is an opportunity to bring awareness to this important cause. One major concentration of the breast cancer campaign is on helping to encourage women to perform a proper Breast Self Examination (BSE) once a month.

This is important because the key to beating breast cancer is early detection. Morethan97percentof women whose cancer is found and treated early, with no spreading beyond the breast, will survive. Noonecan know a woman’s breasts better than herself. If you feel an abnormality, get to your doctor immediately to have it checked out, it could save your life. Also, yearly mammograms are suggested for women over forty. However, more and more women are starting ro have them done at a younger age. Mammograms can detect cancer up to two years before a lump can be felt. The highest risk group for breast cancer is women over fifty, so it is essential thae yearly mammograms are a part of your life by this point. There are factors which in-

crease the risk of breast cancer. For example, women who have already had breast cancer face an increasedriskofgettingitagain. If there is a family history of breast cancer (mother, sister, or daughter), or if you have two or more close relatives with breast cancer, then you are also at an increased risk. Most people don’t realize that certain foods can aid in warding off cancer. A high fat diet maycontribute to this risk. It is suggested that your diet consist of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, two to three servings of low fat milk per day, and lean cuts of meat. Also, consider meat substitutes such as lentils, beans, peas, and tofu. Avoid carcinogens, which are cancer-causing agents found in such foods as hotdogs and bacon.

They can also be found in the black char on burnt foods such as anything cooked on a barbecue or burnt toast. Many people, celebrities, companies, and organizations are contributing to the cause, raising awareness and helping to raise money for research. The Rosie O’Donnell show, which has always done a great deal for various charitable organizations, is truly doing its part for breas t cancer. The show dedicates a large part of its daily hour to breast cancer-related issues. Rosie has implemented the “buddy” system, along with the “I Got Squished With Rosie” campaign. For more details on these and other ways in which Rosie is helping further the cause, see the show’s website. Various Canadian retailers are

doing their part as well. Royal Doulton has designed a figurine called “Hope,” dedicated to women with breast cancer. Thirtyfive dollars from the sale of each figurine goes to the Canadian Cancer Society. Nivea skin cream has donated $15,000 towards research, while La Senza/Sil k and Satin will donate proceeds from the sales of T-shirts and pink ribbons to research. Cotton Ginny and Tabi are also selling pink ribbon jewellery, and all proceeds will be donated to the cancer society. It is heartening to know that so many people are realizing the importance of bringing awareness to this horrific disease, It only takes a little on the part of many to make a drastic change. Hopefully one day soon, breast cancer will be a thing of the past.

Fedback by Heather Fawcett specie to fmprint

Well, it’s that time of year again. TheCanadian teams areout of baseball, and the boring NFL run-run-run style of football has overshadowed the exciting passing game of the CFL. What is there left for Canadian sports fans to do? It’s time for that staple of Canadian childhood: that’s right, it’s hockey season! Hockey is not Canada’s offical national pastime though, that distinction falls to lacrosse. But you don’t see people walking around with “Canada IS Lacrosse” Tshirts, or complaining that the Americans are taking over our status as a world power in lacrosse, now, do you? No, hockey has quite the culture attached to it, and that has good points and bad. I love the game, however, I don’t attach the nation’s, or my own, self-worth to the successes or failures of our national team. This year there are a bunch of changes to thegrand old game that are meant to speed things up and make for some exciting matchups. The dimensions of the rink are somewhat different now, as the goal lines are being moved out from 11 feet to 13 feet, and the neutral zone is being reduced in

size from 58 to 54 feet. This will make the endzones bigger, and hopefully allow for more offensive play. They’ve decided to add, in some instances, two referees to the game, to hopefully catch more of the clutching and grabbing that has been going on for the past few years. This new rule will take effect in 20 games for each team. I can see how this might help in the long run, but more penalties will slow the game down as teams get used to the new dimensions of the rink. In other officiating changes, the video goal judge will be allowed to call down to the ref (or refs) and make calls regarding offensive players in the crease. I can only see this causing HUGE problems. This rule needs to be made subjective because, as it stands, if the player is in the crease when a goal is scored, regardless of his involvement in the play, the goal is disallowed. More of these calls will only serve to frustrate everyone involved. The big deal is, of course, the divisional realignment, and the case I’m most excited about is the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadians being together in

meet in the Stanley Cup finals, but the chances of chat are slim, so I’ll take the divisional realignment, thanks! The unfortunate thing about the start of the hockey season is that it means yet another winter of watching games on TV. The professional games are way too expensive to go to. I remembei back in high school when I had an entirely disposable income, I didn’t go because it cost too much! Now that I actually have a budget, Leaf games just aren’t fitting in. So where does a starving hockey fan turn? We go to the ultimate source for live hockey, and other sports for that matter: the Minor Leagues, In Kitchener, we are lucky to have an OHL franchise, the Kitchener Rangers, who play at Kitchener Memorial Auditorium. If that’s too far from schoo1, check out the Waterloo Siskins, an OHA level team at the Waterloo Ret Complex. And of course, there’s our very own Waterloo Warriors at Columbia Ice Fields. If you’re really desperate, you can see some of Laurier’s home games at the Ret Complex as wel!. And remember, it’s cold in those rinks, so bring a friend.

How to overcome hangovers Tip

by Ben Thomas specinl to hprint

H

angovers are a bitch and can put you out ofcirculation for the entire nextdayafteranightoutdrinking. Since last week was AIcohol Awarensess Week, it would be a great thing to take advantage of this time to reflect on responsible drinking. Alcohol does not necessarily equal a good time. However, for those ofyou who are afflicted by those nasty hangovers, here are some common sense techniques to help overcome the symptoms.

1: Never

pass out

When you pass out after drinking, your body metabolism slows down and your body rakes longer to process all that alcohol. This is the main cause of a hangover. When you get home, just chill out, talk with a friend, go online, or study for Monday’s midterm (yeah right, that’11 happen). Tip

2: Drink

Dehydration hungover feeling.

3: Pace

When you’re out partying and drinking this Oktoberfest, just try to pace yourself. Those five shots you take may not feel like much, but an hour later you’ll be clawing your way across the floor. It usually takes some time for the alcohol to start circulating

Deciding whether he’s a player by Kimberly ImpnirtstH

S

oyou want to know if that guy in your class you’re interested in is a player? You’ve done the initial flirtingthing,goneoutforlunch,andjustgenerallyhungouc.Youwentoucona firstdate(on which you and he had a little fun, ifyou know what J. mean). After that, he said that he would call you. He hasn’t. You strongly suspect that this guy is just a player. For those of you who don’t know, a player can be defined as a person who likes the thrill ofthe hunt, but immediately loses interest once he gets what he wants.

But how do you tell if he is a player? It’s kind of like trying to decide whether Pat is a man or a woman, isn’t it? Well, here are a few simple guidelines to help make that distinction a little bit easier for you. 1. If he owns two cell phones and a beeper, then he’s probably a player. 2. Ifheasksforyourlastnamewhenyou call him, then he’s probably a player. 3. If his favourite movie is “How to Be a Player,” then he’s probably a player. 4. If his university major is Ret, then he’s probably a player. 5. If his favourite phrase is: “Oh, she’s just a friend,” then he’s probably a player.

6. If his little black book is the size of a then he’s probably a player. 7. Ifhis mentor is Bill Clinton, then he’s probably a player. 8. If his room looks like a bordelio, then he’s probably a player. 9. If he dresses like the Butabi brothers, then he’s probably a player. 10. If he has a penis, then he’s probably a player! If it turns out that your beau fulfills six or more out of the above ten requirements, then you now know that he is a player. So the next question is, what should you do about it? There really is only one answer, and ic is

The Eebevatiou Of St-dents’

quite simple: you must move on and prove to him that he’s no,t the onIy player in the game -you can play the field just a6 well as he can. It should be noted here, for the sake of fairness, that being a player is not genderspecific. Most people don’t know that women, too, can be players. It is just too awkward and convoluted to write an entire article using he/she, his/her. But ifyou are a male, disregard number ten, and mustof the list still applies, just: switch words 1ikChe” and “his” with their feminine counterparts. We simply took the female perspective on the subject because, well . . . we am females.

Why does she study fish? “To help us understand how organisms respond to the environment. Humans are changing the environment at a rapid rate and we must be able to predict the effects of this and understand the process.” “A lot of research has already been done on the effects of large spills on fish, but I study the effects of very low, but continual levels of dioxins, PCBs and other industrial waste products. One of the effects of chronic low doses of pollutants is ‘wasting,’ which is weight loss that occurs even though the fish is eating. This is a metabolic problem and so I study the effects of pollutants on the gene regulation of products that support .metabolism.” Dr. Schulte observes changes in the gene expression of fish along the eastern coast of North America that result from their sea-

which at that time was not heavily pursued. She did her senior project on the biochemistry of fish exercise with the help of Peter Hochackka, a well-known Canadian scientist. After a lengthy search for other researchers who were working on similar ideas, Dr. Schulte final1y found Dennis Powers at Stanford University in California. She received an NSERC scholarship which helped her to get into the Stanford program. Her novel perspective on biology and her knowledge and practiced skills in the area of molecular evolution

also made her a more highly qualified applicant. After graduation, Dr. Schulte was quickly offered a position at UW where she has been busy teaching and setting up her laboratory for the past year. This year she teaches human molecular genetics and human physiology. “I work hard and the students here are very strong and appreciate interesting lectures. An part of my job is to important interact with the students. Interacting with professors was very important when I was starting my career and I want to give the same experience to other students.” Though Dr. Schulte is just beginning to establish herself at UW and is still settling in here, she hopes to continue following up interesting aspects of her field. “I will pursue interesting avenues and not be bound to preconceived notions,” Dr.Schulte says. “Though I enjoy teaching, my research is my real love’and it is what I have always wanted to do. I want to remain in a position where I can pursue my research interests wherever they may take me.” Keep up the good work!

Warriors .fall to Mustangs Waterloo 3-l after 44-20 loss in Western’s homecoming byDavidAiknun

JpedaltoImpdnt aturday’s football game between the Waterloo War& ors and the Western Mustangs had every indication S that the Warriors would not continue the string of relatively easy victories that they have had thus far this season. To begin with, there was the fact that Western head coach Larry Haylor needed only one more victory to give him the ah-time career wins record in Mustang football his tory, There was also the Mustangs’ quest for vengeance against the Warriors. Waterloo manhandled Western in their last three meetings, especially last year as they spoiled Western’s homecoming and won the Yates Cup on their turf. In fact, prior tosaturday, Western’s last victory over Waterloo was in 1995 when they squeaked by 23-22, The Mus-

Justtryandtakeitfbmmel photo ty Owen Gregory

tangs believed that enough was enough, and were prepared to redeem themselves for their past performances. Finally, the record-setting victory and the payback could be administered in front of a sold-out homecoming crowd ofclose to 8,000 noisy and annoying Western students and alumni. Thus, the stage was set between Ontario’s two undefeated teams, with the Warriors anxious to once again rain on the Mustang parade. Unfortunately, the Mustangs remained undefeated as they ran over the Warriors 4420. The Western running game, led by the league’s leading rusher Scott Crawley and Fabian Rayne, proved to be too powerful as they rushed for 366 yards. Waterloo’s defensive squad seemed to never leave the field, Waterloo’s rejuvenated offence was nowhere to be found early in the game as they were forced to punt in their three opening drives, The Mustangs, however, scored on their three opening drives and were ~~30-7 at the half. Quarterback Ryan Wilkinson, who has been playing like Dallas Cowboy great Troy Aikman with his superb throwing arm this season, returned to his old form as his rushing capabilities were superior to his airattack. Wilkinson had an outstanding 81-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to close the Western gap to 24-7, but was overshadowed by the fact that he threw interceptions in the drives that preceded and followed that. He finished the day completingonly 10 passes out of 27 attempts for 133 yards, with three interceptions and no passing touchdowns. Mike Bradley continued to have a great year as he earned 140 yards on the ground and scored two touchdowns, while Eddie Kim contri buted for 50 yards. But don’t worry too much about the outcome of Saturday’s game, Warriors fans. This match was considered by

many to be a Yates Cup preview, and remember this: it was only a preview. So what if the game may have cost them home-field advantage for the championship game? Last year the Warriors needed to come up big in London and they

Ha!Ha! Missed me! photo by Owen Gregory did, so there is no reason why that won’t happen again. Despite the loss, the sight of the large and enthusiastic Waterloo crowd in London must have been comforting to the Warriors, and all those who attended should be commended. The Warriors’ next game is Saturday, 290 p.m. at University Stadium against the McMaster Marauders, who have cracked theCIAU’s top ten rankings this year. So come on out and show your support, the game promises to be a good one.

If you are a skier or snowboarder who is suffering from similar cravings, you’re no doubt dreaming of new snow, new gear and new destinations.

T

he Waterloo cross country team had their most successful weekend in recent memory, as we took home the men’s team title in the Waterloo Open, both Athlete of the Week honours, and managed to be ranked number ten in the entire nation. The con&i&on was against the cold weather and the tough hilly course rather than with the other teams as the Warriors rolled over the rest of the field, winning by a 35point margin. Stephen Drew was ninth overall with a nearbest 10k time of 33:24. Men’s captain Alastair Lawrence was right on his heels, finishing tenth in 33:33. Rookie Pete Collison ran a much improved -06 to finish thirteenth. Male Athlete of the Week Scott Curry was Zth, and managed to come back on Sunday to win a triathalon for the swim team. James Rowe, John Lofranco, David Harmsworth and Mike Tripp finished Z&h, 24th, 30th and 33rd respectively, a result which translates into one heck of a battle for the last four spots on the OUA team. Mark Nicholson is also in on that battle, though he didn’t race this weekend due to injury.

The entire Waterloo squad raced this weekend, as it was on our home turf. The golf course will also be the site ofthe CIAU championshipson November 14. Peter Van Driel, Andrew Silcock, Mike Brubacher, Jeff Middel, Greg Milne and B&b Kline all managed to run the 1Ok course in under 40 minutes, a successful run by cross country standards. Jason Gregoire made a successful comeback into the running game after a two-year hiatus. Running under the banner of UW Alumni, Jason managed 19th spot in a time of 34:37. Another UW alumnus, Phil Demsey, was 22nd in 3506. The women had a successful day as well, finishing fifth overall, and fourth out of university teams. Led by captain and the female Athlete of the Week Ame-Lia Tamburrini’s 45second personal best, the women look poised to take on the top teams in the league. Ame-Lia ran 19:ll over the 5k course to finish 14th. She was followed closely by Lynn Coon (l&h, 19: 17) and Shannon Smith (24th, 19:32). Kim Ross had an excellent race as well, and she looks to be returning to the form that allowed her to help the Waterloo Athenas win the national title two years ago. Jill Patterson improved as well,

though she was still suffering from the effects of a cold. Kim Neumayer, Andrea Brookefield, Annie Richardson and Jen Coleman rounded out the team for the ladies. Annie’s time was especially notable as she shaved almost two minutes off her personal best! The story of the day, though, has to be the incredible numbers of volunteers and fans at the meet. Never before has the cross country team garnered so much attention. The Super Fans stopped by on their way to an ill-fated football game, and were a much appreciated addition to the crowd. As cross country virgins, they learned quickly, and were soon running around the course, cheeringun the women, being prompted with names by the men’s team. Hopefully they’ll be back, with even more Super Fans, for CIAU’s in November. Terry Goodenough, Kathy Northey, Tim Mussar and Brian Cartlidge did an excellent job of organizing and running this meet, They couldn’t have done it without the volunteers, who consisted of members of the track team, former (and future?) cross country team members, and many others who helped and cheered our teams to successful runs.

ith a little less than five games left in regular season action, the Warrior women are out for goals. With the games from last weekand these mid-weekgames, Waterloo is playing hard and strong in order to make good standing for the playoffs.On Tuesday, September 29, the Warrior team traveled to Toronto to take on the Varsity Blues, who are currently ranked first in the Ontario division. In a hard fought game, with both strong attacking and defending, the Warriorwomen came up short with a l-Oloss.This weekend, the women traveled to Ottawa to take on Western, Carleton and McGill. Waterloo played their first game Friday night against Western. Even though the ladies kept attacking the Mustang defense and had eleven shots on

net, a O-0 draw occurred. On Saturday, Carleton was the first match for Waterloo. The first half proved tougher than first anticipated with an unexpected goal from Carleton. The Warriors fought back hard, with Joanne Fernades scoring a goal during free play, and Chrissy Willemse scoring two goals, both off of penalty corners. The final score was 3-1. The momentum kept up for the final game against McGill. With three goals scored during free play action, McGill was unable to recover. The final score was 3-0, with the goals coming from Femades, LucieCharron and Laurie Good. On Monday, the Warriors took on York University at Lamport Stadium in Toronto where the Warriors dominated both offensively and defensively. Unfortunately, the Warriors were unable toovertake York.

After running a personal best last weekend at the Western Open, Ame-Lia went on to improve once again, this time by a full 45 seconds over the same 5k distance. Her time of 19: 1 f .2 and 14th place led the Warriors to a fifth place finish in the Waterloo Open Invitational Cross Country meet. Ame-Lia has been working hard all summer training for and competing in triathalons. She is in the best shape of her life and looks to lead the women’s cross country team to the CIAUChampionships held here on our golf course on November 14. . _ I, , r’l

Scott Curry, a fourth year Kin student from Waterloo, demonstrated his multi-sport athletic prowess this past weekend. Competing for the Warrior swim team on Sunday versus Toronto and Broek, Scott completed a Sk run, 16k bike and 1000m swim to win the triathlon competition among the three swim teams. Scott’s win is the first for Waterloo over the six years of that competition. His time was 3 minutes and 49 seconds ahead of the second place finisher from Brock. On Saturday, competing as a cross country Warrior, Scott finished in 25th place in the Waterloo Cross Country Open. This placing helped Waterloo to win the Waterloo Open Invitational Cross Country meet.

t all came together on Saturday. Everything the women’s rugby team has been working on all season came together and they won. After visualizing it all week at practice they made it happen. The women’s rugby team took on an undefeated team from Guelph in the most important game ofthe season so far, and they won! It was a perfect day for rugby, a bit of sun and a nice cold breeze, and the Warriors took advantage of it. They came out hard in the first half, playing the best 40 minutes of rugby they’ve played all year. They won the rucks, the strums and jumped on every unclaimed ball on the field.

over and over and, for the first time this year, the Warrior backs were really able to get into the game. Strum-half Jan Adams was able to get the ball cleanly out to the backs and to first year player Kate Longpre, who had an amazing game at fly-half. She contributed to all the Warrior back plays being successful and allowing the Warriors to move the ball up the field. Kerri Webb and Sara Escobar, at inside and outside center respectively, took every ball and ran every play with 100 per cent intensity, with Sara having her best game of the season, Using every gain to their advantage and after coming close to scoring a number of times, the Warriors finally managed to put it down in the end zone. The try was scored by Heather Moyse, and was truly initiated by all fifteen play-

ers. It was exactly the way rugby was meant to be played. The only worry at this point was the second half. Sofarthisseason thewarriors have not been able to finish as strongly as they’ve begun, but this game proved different. The Warriors were working as a team and no one was going to let theothers down. The women kept their spirits up for the entire second half but let the Gryphons spend a little too much time in their end. Guelph managed to push in a try part way through the second half but could not make the conversion. The Warriors didn’t let this get them down and they pushed Guelph back down into their own end. Special commendations should go out to the Warrior pack who was a big part of this push, especially Andrea Linton who was voted player of the game for her efforts at prop. Andrea could often be seen driving Guelph in the rucks and then looping ou t with the backs tocreate an overlap. Andrea proved she could play anywhere on the field and be successful. Another great effort was put forth by firstyear athlete Amanda Husk who played her first full varsity game at prop and was one of the keys to the Warrior’s success. All fifteen women contributed to this win and should be proud of the way they played. The final score of this game was Waterloo 7, Guelph 5. The Warriors hope to keep up the intensity and growth they’ve shown in the first half of the season and thrive through into the latter part of the season.

oing into this past weekend, the Warrior women’s soccer team was hoping for a mid-season turn-around. AJthough the first half of the 1998 season had been somewhat disapointing for the team, they were optimistic that this weekend could be the start of a giant climb back up the standings, directed by coach Bruce Rodriguez. Saturday’s action saw the team facing a tough and well-rested Windsor Lancer squad in Windsor. The Warriors got the quick start they needed, when rookie right-winger Amanie Ishmail jumped on a rebound and scored only 10 minutes into the game. Just seconds later, rookie right

found the back of the net with a bullet shot from 20 feetout, putting the Warriors up 2-O. The score held into the second half until a speedy Lancer striker broke through the Warrior defense to score Windsor’s first and only goal of the game.

As tensions rose, tempers flared and the Warriors’ emotions peaked. Centre midfielder Jill Johnson was issued a red card and ejected from the game for her tough, fiesty play up the middle, while Warrior captains, sweeper Laura Munro and stopper Emily Oliver, both received yellow cards for their high intensity play. Fortunately, the Warrior defense and an outstanding performance by netminder Marie Wonacot preserved the hard fought 2-1 victory. Sunday afternoon saw the Warriors facing cross-town rivals the Laurier Golden Hawks at Varsitystadium. Freshofftheirwinat Windsor, the Warriors were pumped and ready to take it to the Laurier team.

The other two locations were both located in the Union Hall, immediately beside the Sonic Unyon store. The highlight of the Union Hall was the elderly cou;ing the snack bar behind Is. You could almost see losing what hearing they had Ieft.From the looks on their faces it was evident that they had their doubts about the sanity ofanybody who would pay money for tickets to the show, let alone enjoy that racket. Oh well, can’t please everybody. The bands, ah, the bands. Standouts included the New Grand, who put on a rockin’ show in the Union Hall. Blonde Redhead, the art rock band from New York (that sounds a great deal like Sonic Youth), brought the festival to a crashing close at the Dragon City. Their surreal guitar sounds and bizarre vocals, coupled with the fact that a pair of the band members are twins lead to a dis-

tinctlyunusualatmosphere. It was great. Thrush Hermit put on an amazing show, playing tracks from Sweet Homewrecker and their new album, due out on the Unyon shortly. Echo Send also played a really fantastic set. Their band consists of one member from Sianspheric, and two people who were not immediately recognizable. Their sound was definitely space rock - they transformed the basement of the Union Hall into their own personal jam area. Steve Peruzzi, the lead singer of Sianspheric and the most recognizable member was notably absent from the entire festival. Mayor McCa stunned the crowd by tap dancing and playing guitar at the same time, his sound was distinctly Beck-like and his busker attitude entertained the crowd packed into the store for his entire set. It’s easy to say that the Sonic Unyon show was great, that much was inevitable given the bands on the roster, It wasn’t inevitable that

the show would be fantastic, but it was. Happy birthday Unyon!

A

unique opportunity to witness traditional Chinese folk art and culture at its best is coming to Kitchener-Waterloo. Direct from Taipai, Taiwan, the National Acrobats of China will put on a one-time show at the Centre in the Square on October The perfect movements and flexible showmanship that you will witness have their roots in ancient Chinese civilization. Since the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. - 240 A.D.), Chinese performers have dazzled and amazed audiences with their spectacular expertise. Today’s troupe is composed of unique performers, most of whom have been trained from early ages at the Fu Hsing Academy, a school for performing arts

chat has preserved the traditional, systematic teaching methods of ancient China. The performers are thus experts in various areas, including dramatics, music and dance. They have mastered dif-

ferent skills at varying levels, with the intentionof promotingexquisite traditional acrobatic arts through performance to continue the process of transmission from generation to generation. The result is a performance

that combines uniquely Chinese musicand dance movements with stories based in Chinese culture and history. The audience can an expect an awesome display of talent that bears homage to Chinese folklore and myth. Using everyday household items throughout their performance, this skillful group of 35 performers have provided encertainment and relaxation for audiences all around the world, The aim of today’s National Acrobats of China is to make traditional folk acrobatics arts versatile and to open a new era of art while continuing their performance of traditional Chinese acrobatics. Tickets for this performance cost between 25 and 34 dollars, and can be purchased over the phone by calling the Centre in the Square’s box office, at 5781570.

ell, I guess it was inevitable. As an editor of a paper, or just a section of the paper (let’s say Arts) things are bound to cross your desk that rub you the wrong way. In fact, you might think that it is so wrong that you wouldn’t want to print it+ It finally happened. One of the things that I think is just plain wrong is cruelty to animals. Yes, I am a vegetarian, but in this case, it’s irrelevant. Veggie or not, few people disagree about the fact that hurting animals is not fun, under any circumstances. Which brings us to the point of this rant. The story above this deals with a woman who tortures and kills domesticated animals for sport. The documentary that glorifies this woman (the basis of the piece) makes few or no references

out to show the world that she can be both feminineand a bullfighter. As she says, “In the arena I’m a bullfighter. I’m not changed into a man. Being a bullfighter is not being a man.” The film goes to great lengths to show that Cristina can be both a swaggering and powerful killingmachineand a woman who loves to dress up and even still sleeps with her teddy bear. Director Susanna Edwards does a good job of illustrating the loneliness that Sanchez faces as a result of her career choice. However, as is the problem with many documentaries Edwards does not dig deep enough. Suns&&w fails to question certain topics. First of all, no mention is made of the

very valid criticism that bullfighting is not a sport but violent form of animal cruelty. Another aspect that would have been interesting is Sanchez’s relationship with her father. He controls both her personal and professional life. Sanchez appears to be in her Iate 20’s yet she still lives at home and her father makes all decisions abour her life. Stins/r&~?w is an interesting peek into a different culture but a peek is all it is.

to the ethics of bullfighting (or lack thereof) and functions as a promotional piece for Spanish bullfighting. So why would Imprint run a piece implicitly promoting bullfighting? As arts editor I had three main arguments against running the piece: first, 1 was disgusted personally by the documentary; second, I felt that: the community at large would be revolted by the concept as well; third, I was disgusted by the documentary. The question then becomes, do I have the right to choose and not choose what goes into the paper? Or maybe more accurately, should I as arts editor censor the content of the section for considerations outside of the usual (racism f sexism / homophobia) concerns? The answer, overwhelmingly at the Imprint, was no. And perhaps that answerwas right. I mean, who am I to choose what people should or shouldn’t read. If I feel

that readers might be disgusted by it, than where is the harm in letting them decide for themselves? Or, maybe as the editor it is my responsibility to decide what the baseline ethics are for the section. The questions, as always, come more easily than the answers. The Arts section covers a wide variety of topics, some of interest to me, others not so personally interesting. The issue here is not whether I find bullfighting interesting; the issue is whether or not the Imprint should act as a promotional forum for something that may be morally repugnant. I say no. Others say yes, Read the article, see the documentary if you must, bu c let’s make an agreement. I’ll print the well written article about crap, but you’ll have to recognize it as such and decide for yourself. Deal?

Is ?Ziis D&z? contains a mixture of sounds, the song “Catherine” contains a heavy primal drumbeat and Harvey’s vocals are pushed to the back, while the song “Electric Light” lives up to its billing with a buzzing electric sound in the background that creates a 1950s science fiction movie feel.

After putting to rest the ghosts of his former outfit The Lowest Of The Low on 1996’s 728 &X-W Of My Ex~as,Hawkins has returned with the first record featuring his new crew, the Rusty Nails. In retrospect, Excess was the transitional record, containing both Low-esque rockers and ballads and Nails-era horndriven swing-punk. For the open-minded, S#-ar Mtz&neis a terrific record, finely-honed by months of incessant touring. This isn’t music you dance to, so much as a soundtrack for getting piss-drunk and mean. St-ar M&ine puts the final Nail in the coffin of the Low. While Hawkins’ self-described “mangrel” rock is a different creature than the products of his past life, it is still undeniably Ron, Hawkins’ wicked lyrics and wordplay remain intact, as he once again proves he is one of Canada’s premier wordsmiths and songwriters. His best moments recall early Elvis Costello for sheer brilliance and venom this could be This Year’s Model meets Spike. High points on Star Machine include “Pokerface” and “Be My Alibi,” in which Hawkins throws a bone to all Low fans. In it, he rocks out like it’s the summer of 1993, and it’ll bring a tear to many an eye. Per-

The songs are mellow and subdued but still carry a strong emotional punch. It just takes a closer listen to fully appreciate. However some of the songs are mixed so that Harvey’s voice often fades into the background of the song and is very difficult to hear.

Fans of Harvey will find a lot they can like in this CD but new listeners wilt probably enjoy it as well.

haps the only disappointment here is the absence of the slower, acoustic numbers which had previously allowed Hawkins the opportunity to stretch out lyrically. Listeners will simply have to make do with his faster-tempo numbers. . . how tragic. The dissolution of the Low in the fall of 1994 was a dark day for Canadian music, whose only silver lining was the possibility of all members remaining musically active and creative. Sadly, this scenario has yet to be fully realized. After several false starts, Steve Stanley returned with the Bastanados but they have been M.1.A for some time now. More promising are John Arnott’s rootsrockers the Pollyannas (a project with exmembers of Crash Vegas and Weeping Tile, among others), who are set to release their first record later this fall. Star Machine may be difficult to track down outside of the T.O. area (it’s being released independently), but will surely prove worth the hunt. All hail Ron Hawkins,

Coxon wrote the eleven songs on X+8 22& is Too High. ” He laid the tracks down in five days, which is quite a feat since he played every instrument. The talent doesn’t end there: Coxon picked out all the artwork and hand wrote lyrics and a bio for the cover. This guy couldn’t be more d.i.y., even if he tried. Each song is different from the previous one. The first song, “That’s All I Wanna Do” startsoff like your typical acoustic ballad,

I could swear Coxon sounds exactly like Syd Barrett but that just might be the way cool accent. The next great song, “Hard + Slow” is a little more upbeat and is sure to be one of the most loved.

impfint staff I must admit that it was the cover that atuacted me to this album. Like most people, I had not heard of Donna Marchand before. The cover appears eerie and nostalgic and depicts images of strange shapes, colours and clouds mingled with photos from Marchand’s family photo album. I soon discovered’ that, as expected, many of the songs on the album focused on memories of past experiences. The album as a whole is very interesting and puzzling. Marchand bbviously put a great deal of effort into the wordy lyrics

of her folkish songs about lust, child abuse, children caught in the crossfire of war and weary soldiers. But, even with Marchand’s great gift for wordiness, I still found the lyrics to be somewhat cryptic. Each song seems to have what Marchand considers to be a moral, though often it’s hard to tell exactly what it is. Eventually I just gave up trying to figure out her point and just listened. The music was expertly arranged and included such unusual instruments as sleigh bells, congas, accordion and saws as well as the usual guitar, drums and piano. Most of the songs are very upbeat and keep you listening. They have a kind ofcampfire song feel. The title track “In From the Cold” is dedicated to “all the weary soldiers.” This song seems

Not only is LX’ng a concept album, but the concept itself is curious. The entire album’s lyrics surround local history and politics in the area the band calls home - K-W.

All the previous songs get you in that yummy little sleepy feeling, all mellow and cool, then a11 of a sudden you’re slapped with guitars and drums, ripping you from your happy place and slamming you down into a punk wonderland. Graham sums up his debut as “angry and puerile to depressing and rural.” He forgot to add in how kick ass it is! I’m sure all out there won’t share my enthusiasm: this album was not made for the masses to consume and put on next year’s frosh CD and play until all goodness is bled dry. It’s written for those music fans who are looking for something a little less commercial and a little more sincere. Inspired by the greats of folk and indie rawk (i.e. Leonard Cohen, J Mascus, Thurston Moore, and Yo La Tengo) Graham Coxon has produced a CD that would complete any 104 lover’s collection.

This album is quite well done and is an excellent product of months, if not years, of work.

The band’s sound could be described as a cross between early R.E.M (pre - Outofi%ze) and the Tragically Hip. In fact, this band would not be out of place in the general Kingston area; listeners will also get strong Weeping Tile flashbacks (if the band had a male lead) when listening to Digging. As difficult as it may be to pull off a concept album, I would say that Finnigan’s Tongue has managed to do it. Although it does get tired in places, it also gives a sense of continuity that seems to be missing in many other CDs. It also gives the band a strong card to play when looking for gigs in the local area. Don’t take my word for it though, go see the band at the Jane Bond Oct. 17.
