Too many bikes, not enough racks Cvclists forced to find alternate lock-up arrangements Susan Bubak

IMPRINT STAFF Take a look around campus, and you'll see dozens of bikes chained t o trees, street signs and other inanimate objects. Is it a matter of laziness or a shortage of bike racks o n campus? "1 think it's a combination of both factors," said Mihe r<errigan, bederation of Students vice president internal Some students choose not t o lock thcir bikes to a bike rack because it's too far a\vay from their intended destination, while others lock their bikes to trees because there is n o alternative. "I have noticed that thcrc will be some bikes lockcd up to other objects around a bike rack that is full," said I<errigan. According to Jcrry IIutten of Plant Operations, there are approximately 350 bike racks on campus with 1-arious capacities and plans are underway to add more bike racks in problem areas. "There is a continual process of replacing old and damaged racks, trying different styles and plac ing additional racks in busy areas

hen necessar~" H e added if and 1% that this process usually takes place in early spring and early fall Plant Operations currentl> has a number of oldcr bike racks that need t o be repainted before thej

can be installed around campus About three )ears ago, these bike racks wcre replaced by "U racks," which are more secure than oldcr models because thev are designed t o lock both the front

heels and rear 1% Bikes that are not locked t o a bike rack are ticketed "If the bike 15 locked in a p o o r location," said Kerrigan, "it map hare its lock cut and be brought toPolice Serv

ices." H e explained that a bike may be removed if it is locked in an area where the groundskeepers need t o mow the lawn. All bikes that are seized will be put in storage for up to 90 days. If thc owner does not claim thc bike within 9 0 days, the bike will bc sold at the Bike Centre auction. Andrew Cameron, a volunteer a t the Blkc Centre, said the number of bikc racks on campus is "not even close to cilough." TIC added that there is a chronic shortage of bike racks outside Carl Pollock f-Tall (CPII), \\here he attends class. Another bike enthusiast described the hilie rack area outside CPII as "horrible." Other problem areas include the ox-ercron dcd bikc racks outside the Math and Computers building and the Student Life Ccntrc, where numcrous bikes wcre chaincd to trees, lampposts and handrails. K h e n asked ~f it was fair t o penalize bihe riders who loch their bibea in such A manner, Cameron replied, "I don't think so It's up t o the uni5 ersity t o provide enough bike racks " sbubak@~mpr~nt uwaterloo ca

Construction out of: thin alr Tushar Singh

SPECIAL TO IMPRINT When somebody mentions construction you immediately thmk of the new buildings that arc being built on campus or the research park on north campus, but there's a different sort of construction afoot The new construction corers a larger regton, is almost inlisible and cheap compared to the million dollars of concrete that dominate the landscape Latc last week, the Grad house pined the list of locations from which students can access the Internet through the university's wireless network Those fortunate enough to have wireless cards in their laptops can surf the net from avariety of locations including Carl Pollock Hall lobby, CPI1 second floor, E2, Rod Coutts Hall, the Davis Lentre and limited sections of the math building Thcre are also several undocumented wireless access points in the residences that willgive you access to the university networks Even with this expansion and service available, a small number of users have been scen malung active use of the system In fact, many

students in math and engineering recognize that the system exists but d o not use it. The primary reason given was this: "I'll use it as soon as I can afford it." The wireless network on campus is a wireless fidelity GVIFI) network using the 802.11b protocol. Usage ofwireless facilities typically requires a36150 card to connect to an access point An access point is a radio receiver and transmitter, which typically cost $300 for me dium range connectiviq. Thismeans that wireless nctworks are useful where alaree number of users exist and the cost and inconvernienceof cable merits a conversion towireless fidehty Another reason that studcnts do not use the networkwas cited by Ed Gorham. "I have to sit in a hallway or stairwell to get reception in k2,except for Poets,and it's hard to do actual work m Poets unless bar services are offered " Reception problems are caused by the thick walls that are present throughout campus Better recep tion can often be obtained by going up or down one floor rather than on the same floor as the access Doint There is another reasonwhy recep-

-

-

tion is bad - the access points used by the university are some of the lowest power models on the market That, in combination with the thick walls, leads to limited coverage which can sometimes be hard to find The best way to findwireless access in the engineering buildings is to look for the "Wireless Willie" signs The wireless areas in math and computing are not labelled but the area around the C&D and class rooms on thefourth floor are well coxcrcd as are the offices on the fifth Althoughnot mentioned by stu dents, security issues a r m f primary conccrn among 1VIFI users Cap turmg the data that flows through the air is quite easy for those with the approprtate equipment T o pro tect users when they are signing on for access, thc untversity has provided a security certificate which encrypts data Users should take their own precautions but keep in mind that reception problems mean that anybody eavesdropping on your connectionis sittingwithin 10 meters A good qign to watch out for is somebody witha Pringles can with a wire coming out of it The network is fast, reliable, and the abiltq to check the weather fore-

Resurrecting homecoming There's no place like home, no place like Waterloo

People oftenlament the indifference of LJW students to their school as people ironically and s d r l y do at other schools. The connection and feeling students have with their school benefits the school through contributions to the community and a positive vibe on campus. Thts m turn can strengthen the connection by attractmg more and better students. The studentsof yesterdayare today's alumni and an alumnschool connection also benefits the school The connection that UW alumni have with their school benefits us m many ways First, the alumni connectioncan translate mto future donations. If they feel good about UW they wdl want it to succeed and will be more hkely to contribute funds. Last year alunuu donations constituted more than 47 per cent of the $22 d o n of contirbutionsto UW in 2000 and 2001. For the same reasons, but, m other ways, alumni can help the university by hiring co-op students, helping recruit studentsand telling others that they, as fine people, are from the University of Waterloo. Through these mechanisms homecoming contributesto W s success as a university. Sowe can therefore further our school's success by, among other things, contributingto the success of homeconmg. Attendance at homecomin9;

declined since a high of 734 regs tered alunuu m attendance m 1994 to a lower number in 1998. One issue that people suggest could increaseparticipationin homecoming is changmg the mam event to a football game Football is a common homeconung sports event Every one out of the m e other OUA schools that compete m football combines a football game with their homecommgactivities. Carleton University,whtch does not compete in football, is the only other Ontario university that has a basketball tournament as part of its homecoming, the House-Laughton Hoops Classic tournament. UW changed the homecommg major sports event m 1985 from a football game to the Nasmith Classic. a basketball tournament. The tournament is superior m terms of planning smce UW schedules the tournament instead of the OUA for football games As well it is easier to control the environment m the PAC than the weather m the outdoors. The Office of A l m Affairs is trymg to make homecoming more successful through cross campus partnerships, promotion and events. A l w affairs is workmg with different parts of campus to put on events Athletics runs the Nusmth, student groups help with promotions and other organizations plan events as well. To spread the word they sent emad newsletters to 4,800 alUINlj, printed 3,600 pamphlets and set up a new Web site with 67 separate pages. Alumn~can also ask ahmm affairs to set up reunions during the year or cross-promoted with h o m e c m g . ' h s year during homecoming they are running six

reunions includmg Feds staff, the 25th anniversary of swun team championships, West D/West E 1987and engineenng2002. They want to make sure that undergraduatesknow homecommg is for them too, not just for students. Students can come out, have fun, network and pperspective on theu school careers. Alyson Woloshyn from alumni affairs said "As far as registrations to date for homecoming 2002 the total numbers stand at 127 -that is countingeach event md~vidually. It's climbingevery day and I am hoping that it will spke up very soon but we shall see." She said that preregistration numbers are less than expected but higher than they were last year. We have yet to see what impact the changes wdl have. Homecoming is not vital to our success as auniversity,but it can help.

Religious representatives discuss world peace On Saturday, October 5 the 22nd annual World Religions Conference was held in the Hagey Hall Theatre of the Humanities. The theme, "World Peace - What Religions Can Achieve,"wasdiscussed by representatives from most major world religions and a repre-

with how this whole bus pass/ lodgmg house debacle is playing out. This political gambit, mark my words, will netarwork out in our favour until the Feds change their lobbying strategy. Being an aspiring urban planner, I noticed the same "mix-up" the mayor did in the Feds resolution of September 15. The Feds executive says it knew of this. Alright, so our student representatives did their homework and figured out that the best way to get the ci) of \K1aterloo to bend to our iron will is to break off bus pass talks with of Waterloo. the r&onalmuni~i;pali~ Or, stop tallung with one level of gowrnment to change the ways of another.

Well, there is one link between the city and the regionalmunicipality: Mayor \XToolstencroft.So, the intended force of the Feds resolution is to get the regon to put pressure on the mayor to bend to "our" iron will. Smart. It could spook city councillors into getting the mayor to change or possibly spook the mayor herself. Even smarter. Here's the flaw in "our" iron will -where is the incentive for Mayor \Yoolstencroft (or the city or region, fur that matter) to give an!, more timc to this issue than she heady has?

Every week, we put together a newspaper in relative isolation in the basement of the Student Idfe Centre. It is easy in such a capacity to cut ourselves off from the rest of the world and to imagine we are the only ones facing our pamcular challenges. Thts weekend, I had the opportumty to meet other people involved in university newspapers and bcnefit from the experience of some professional journalists at the CanadianUniversity Press conference in Toronto. I found out that not only do other student newspapers face the same issues, professional journalists do as well. Tomnlo S t d s Catherine Dunphy discussed the sorry state of features writing, not just in university papers but also in the professional media. Shc presented samples of features stories from that day's major Toronto papers that, when pointed out, were obviouslypoorly-written.Bruce

Arthur from the Notional l h ? chamcterizedfmdingsports writcrs at university newspapers as one of the great mysteries of our time. It was good to hear that this problem, which has plagued Impin/for ycars, is not one uniquely our own. 'l'his lead me to wonder what other situations in our hves might benefit from insight from otherswho face similar challenges. One thing that has been foremost in discussion on this campus lately is housing. The BrockPress,Brock Unwersity's student newspaper, recently ran an editorial explaining that, even the last school year began with conhct between Hrockstudents and locals ieguding housing, and the year ended in the same way. In St. Catharines, the housing situation has overflowed to affect low-income rentcrs. Competition for housing space resultingpartly from the three-student-limit on houses surroundmg the university and partly from less funding for universities, implying less oncampus residence,has been impacting non-student renters. l'he Queen's Journal reported their student government president urgmgcity council October 2 to make housing a priority. The report highl~ghtsthe

quality of housing, stating that quantity is also a problem. Another issue many of us have In common is rlsing tuition. The Varsity, U of T's student newspapt rcports their administration urgtng more "flexibility" with tuition, a stance similar to that taken by our own president David Johnston, who asked for "more freedom" om tuition fees. A Queen's Park rally in response to a proposal for furthermg deregulation at Queen's university last December prompted apres release from the Ontario Undergraduate Students Alliance arguing that dercgulation at Queen's would result in "domino-l~keeffect" deregulationacross the promnce. The release stated that this would result in a two-tier education systcn It's interesting to note that we seldom compare our issues to similar ones experienced by others. As we struggle through issues with housing, tuition and others, we should remember that these problems have likely already been solved m other instances. Clearly, such a comparison would be beneficial not only because it would help us dlscover how other people have dealt with thcir issues, but also because it feels better to know you'n not the only one.

Can selfishness save the environment? Bylaw: b a r h g up the

MAPS AND LEGENDS I am going to take a position that will likely make me very unpopular in the environmental studies coffee shop, namely are more government regulations and command and controlpolicies necesqarily the best way to prbtect the environment, And can the free market help encourageenvironmentallysustamable behaviour? The knee-jerk response to the latter is usually no But consider that when people reflexively call for more government action to protect the environment, they ignore the reality that the worst environmental offenders over the past century have been countries where the government controlled everything -the former Soviet Union and communist China Every year, more oil enters the world's oceans by way of Soviet rivers than by every oil tanker disaster or other spill in the rest of the world combined The reason the ecological record of the free market is not much better is that the enmron ment and the ecological \enrice\ ~t provides have been wddly undercalued For example, the

world's plant life removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and produces oxygen. Despite the fact that this process keeps us all alive, it is assigned no economic value zero. It is treated as a free good and consequently gets abused Secondly, connder the way we measure the economy, the Gross Domestic Product. Let's say a forest in British Columbia is clear cut and the l o p g com pany pockets a billion dollars. Unfortunately, the clear cut increases run-off dramatically, the town down the river is wiped out by the resulting flood and needs to be rebuilt (a bLUlon dollar boom for the construction mdustry) GDP-wise, all this economic activity is great. Every town in Canada should be lucky enough to get flooded Somethmg is clearly not nght with this

logic Since the market economy is something humanity invented and not subject to set in stone laws (like physics), it follows that we can change the rules to better suit our purposes If the natural environment is not sufficiently valucd by the market, we can change the rules to make it so The trees in the previous emmple have a value beyond the amount of toothpicks one can produce from them They keep the \oil in place and reduce run off, which keeps the town down the m e r from being flooded,

clearly this service has some economic value If the trees were properly priced to reflect this value or if the l o p g company was responsible for duplicatmg all of the services that the trees previously provided, it simply would not be economically smart to cut them all down The company would instead follow a more environmentally sustainable approach and find a balance between harvesting trees and maintamg the serwces that the forest provides The company profits off the trees it does harvest and the people downstream don't have to start sleeping on their roofs Are there problems with this approach) Most certainly; here's a few: what's the value of a aver? An endangered species? Can you put a pnce on the Earth? (More on this next week) However, it is an approach to environmentalism that has not been p n an adequate try, and which shows great potential to protect nature within the current context of our world Since global capitahsm does not appear to be going away in the foreseeable future, perhaps it's time that we started to use it to help protect nature instead of waiting it out I doubt nature would last long enough if we hesitate

Repealrflgthe by-law, as the student council wishes, would inevitably lead to areal estate frenzy between here and Launer as prospective landlords snap up the land Supply verws demand the number of prospective houses is the same, but with demand to buy, all the property values go up Wh~chmeans mortgages go up and so t w does rent What study or case has ever been quoted showing that having a student housing distnct makes thmgs better) Have any of the Feds councillorsevcr been to Kingston? Kingston is not exactly a wonderful student gheao and is just as separated from the town as any socially enpeered suburb (there is no better way to keep undesirables out, or m for that matter, than the suburb) Sure, they have some wicked keg parties involvingwhole streets, but that city does not appreciate sending police in twice a month to cordon off the area IGngston's student housing is structurally sound, lFke ours, but it sure looks shabby lined with the city's garbage The rents aterage out about $50 less per month, but their student union, the Alma Mater Society,actually talks to the city about improving condit~onsand bylaw enforcement

They even participate on an open city committee Sorry to the enemies of "social e n p e c m g " and consensus bu~ldmg,I guess I forgot that thmktng ideologically is just downright communist Damn me and damn the city for resistmg that urban blight So what leverage do the students of Waterloo have to negotiate with? Bus pass negotiations that could have changed thc horribly flawed GRT and the environment All studentswere struck by an adversanal studentunion because maybe the mayor would feel the pinch Or, essentially n o h g Until we m o b h e a force at the polls next November behind an anti-bylaw candidate, or student council grows up and gets its heads out of protest mode and into conciliatorymode, there is no need to listen If Georgetown University can do it, even with the threat of lawsuits tossing thew right to vote, we sure as hell can do it And we won't have to hold a single letter writing campaign or bakc sale We have no fight to quality housing near campus and there is no legal document out there to enforce that (sorry, but not evena recognmon m two official plans can't make this bylaw"dleg;rl") Until we use what rights we do have to instigate change, get used to being laughed off

Madame mayor, why do you despise us so? hap@@&as-$V!sl$aLC

You! OFF My Guess what, ktds? The mayor of Waterloo doesn't think too highly of you After all, you are a student and in the mavor's mind that's merely a convement synonym for troublcmakrng subhuman political pawn. I assure you, I am not exaggerating In her article posted recently on umtulient.org, the mayor reflects upon the antics of a few "out ofcontrol, disrespectful" students. She later complains about our "self absorption," "idiocy" and "aggres siveness "She reaches the conclusion that, because some students (the vast m o n t y ) msbehave, it is acceptableto treat allstudents however the city pleases I am referring, of course, to the now-mfamous 75 metre bylaw which restricts the number of lodging houses in the city of \Vaterloo The Feds recently severed negotiations with thc regmn for a untversal bus pass, since they correctly reasoned it would be smarter and cheaper, in the quest toincreaseaccessibdttyfor

housmg, if the city got rid of the bylaw The mayor was thoroughly unamused X'orse, in refusing to even d~scussthe 75 metre bylaw, the mayor appears to be ~ustifyingaas a sort of convoluted social engineering project for the city Forcing students to spread out, she ,a, would create more diverse neighbourhoods Not too many old folks over here, not too many students over there You know -to create the sort of "balance" that healthy communities need. But why stop there? Why not make sure that we have a more equitablemix of race too? After all, there's some pretty "white" neighbourhoods that could use a little "colour." And don't forget the need for diverse height levels if too many tall people h e inthe same neighbourhood, there mght be a risk of spontaneous outbursts of basketball The possibilities are enormous and that's just talktng about where you can live1 As a next step, the city could pass bylaws ensurmg that these mandatory neighbours socialize in order to better absorb each other's culture Students would be rcquired to play shuffleboard and bridge on Sundays and every other Wednesday the seniors could come to the Bomber (15 per cent discount on drtnksl) -

If this stdces you as ndiculous, you mtght ask why the mayor doesn't find it less say to restrict the housing market The right of a student to live where housing is available>Restricted Thc right of property owners to rent to students? Restricted Why) The city said so What is this, the U S.S R Worst of all, it doesn't even

The right of property owners to rent to S ~ U dents? Restricted. Why? The ,ity said so. What is this, the USSR? work1 The mayor likes to ctte nasty things a few unruly students do Well, they're happening already -is there evidence that killtngthe bylaw would make things worse? Meanwhde, housing demand goes up, housing supply goes unchanged, rents go up and quality goes down -thanks to all the slumlords who are rentmgdlegallybecause the city won't let them do so legally If the mayor assumes that all students are hooligans, she should

say as much Oh wait -she basically did Okay, then why not spare us the bullshit about the need for "diverse" communities Just say students are troublemakers and we need to dilute their n u n bers as much as we can If the mayor truly feels this way about students, let notice be served

Womyn's Centre useless To [he editor, I've got to hand it to the Womyn's Centre -they've done agreat job of convincingthemselves and others that they're still somehow serving UW students Nikki Chmmck's response to Gloria Tchun (Fenunism not Black/ W'hite, October 4,2002) was a very flowery defense of a service that has rendered itselfuseless To the Womyn's Centre ladies why should Glouaattend any of your weekly meetmgs or try to learn from you what feminism is about? I suspect that she could actuallyteach the Wromyn'sCentre a thing or two about fcminism, since their representatme, N&, wrote that, "feminism is about beingawoman" and that, "a feminist m not defined by what she does or does not believe " Accordingtothese statements, every woman is a feminist, regardless of her beliefs Would N& thengrant the label of feminist to awoman whopreferred to be subservient to men? Nikki went on to accuse Gloria of placing the Womyn's Centre ladies "all on one notch" and rightfdly so The Womyn's Centre does make it preqclearthroUghthei~displayboard, Web site and the numerous but narrow scope of resources and activities that they have certain beliefs and that thore isn't room for every ideology at the Womyn's Centre It doesn't take a gemus to realize that Nikki and her posse of womyn have chosen to pigeon hole themselvesas hairy-legged, pussy chanting,pottery making,pro choicegrrls At one time, femmlsm was about fighting for the rights ofpersonhood - a chance to vote, work etc ,but now, at the Womyn's Centre, it's just "about being a woman " 1Iow ntce h d s t all this criticism,I will ad mit one thtng. I'm glad thc Womyn's Centre had a discussion group for women of Islam and I thtnk a's wonderfulthatthefveparticipatedmmTake Back The Night " Unfortunately, I can't help but wonder if that's the most they can dowith the money they receive as a UW "service?"

Confused

Q. I was happy to see your column as a place to ask something I've been wondering about since high school. I understand that homosexuals have sex, but how do they actually do it?

A. Sex is a funny thing to define. If youuse the Merriam-Webster Online definition,"intercourseinvolvingpen-

etration of the vagina by the penis," then you're right, it would be pretty hard to do this without both a vagina and a penis. However, just to prove that dictionary guys aren't stuffy prudes, they've expanded the definition and offer as analternative,"intercourse involving contact between individuals other thanpenetration of the by the penis,"which doesn't tell us much more. Clickingto intercourse, we get as the third definition, "physical sexual contact between individuals that involves the genitaha of at least one person." This is something we can work with. Some optional accessories fur the pcrson whose genitalia is not involved could be mouth (fellatio), tongue (cunnilingus), fingers (hand job), hands (fisting), anus (sodomy), toys, vegetables, etc. Fetishists get into a whole other territory and require consideration of sexual acts that don't involve genitals at all. But let's leave that for another day. In your wisdom you've decided to write me rather then Merriam or that rat bastard Webster. This entitles you to some of my musings along with your answer. These days straight,gay and lesbian couples arc all performing pretty much the same sexual acts. For example, most participants on the dating circuit accept oral sex as par for the course.

Q. Why do students on this campus aJl crowd around the doorwaybefore lectures?It's pretty retarded to think that they can get in while the whole other class is trying to leave. A generalpolicy should be that people leaving a class get out before people come in.

A. Consider your message passed along. Sick of home life

Q. AU last year I went home for every holiday. I'm getting sick of spending so much time there and this year I want to stay at school more. Am I an ungrateful daughter? My parents pay for my education so I should probably feel indebted and want to make thcm happy.

A. What you're feeling is natural and doesn't make you ungrateful. Parents' funding of your education does place pressure on you to do what they want. Any time you rely on the benevolence of others it puts you in a difficult position to manage both their desires and pour own. In this situation, follow your own. If you don't think they'll take the truth well, tell them that school is busy and that you could use the extra time here to get caught up on coursework

dence, it's not good. For about 45 days all I could cat was white rice. After a whde I just couldn't sand rice anymore so I stopped eating altogether for a few days. I contacted the food services hierarchy to request something - a microwave at least sothat I could cook but to no avail. my own food Pcople don't realize that vegans just wanttoeat. It's not that difficultwe just want food. It wasn't until I got too sick to continue my studies that anyone paid any attention." So what are some of the altcrnatives for vegetarians whose friends and families just don'tget it? Sylvia,in her second year of arts, sad she just simply eats all thc sidc dishes and ignores the meat. "My mom wasn't veqaccommodatingwhen I first be: m e avegctarian,but now she tries to espectmy choice more. Iloveallhds ~ffood so I don't mind stickingto the lon-meat part of a meal my mom >repares." For vegetarians who feel that side lishes simply don't make the cut, -here are other options. Web sites ;uchaswww.vegweb.compostmany recipes including meal ideas for -

who come from an anglophone family -it all centers around meat. For some people,Thanksgivingisjust not the same without the turkey. Tofu turkey, especially when store bought, looks amazmglyclose to the real thing. It doesn't tastc cxactly the same, but it gives vegetarians something to share with their family and you save the life of a turkey, which for some is very important."

I can't believe it's not turkey!

By contrast, the plain fries are anythtng but they are hand-cut,perfectlycooked and crispy despite their pale appearance (a sure sign of clean fryer oil).

Building demolitions are another common example of implosion. In ths case, the collapseisactuallyattributed to gravity and not atmospheric pressure; however; the term implosion is often used in the industry. Thc basic idea of building implosion is that if you remove a building's support structure at a certain point, the section of the building above that point will fall down on the part of the building below that point. Provided thatthisupper sectionis hcavyenough, it will collide with the lower part with sufficient force to cause significant damage. A true building implosion is only imtmted whenother structuresor

Raptors rock Waterloo

Men's basketball looking sharp

Keith Loo SPECIAL TO IMPRINT

The 'Toronto Raptors training camp was held in \X'aterloo from Monday, September 30 to Sunday, October 6. The camp marked the beginning of what looks to be an escitlng seasonin which wc expect great things from Vmsanity andthe rest ofthe Raptors. It was great to have the team in town and it was even better to watch them play - although it wasn't all fun and games. The Raptors were here on a mission: to practice and to work with a squad that has not been 100 per cent healthy for most of last season. WhenMorris Peterson was asked whether he had a chance to tour Waterloo, he replied, "Unfortunately, no. We've been w o r k g hard the whole week." And when Alvin "Boogie" \Villiams was asked the same question, he replied,'@%s is trainingcamp. We're not here to play, we're here to practise." Although his injuries did not allowhun toplay in the intrasquad game on Saturday, that won't keep Alvin away from the game. During the shooting sessions on their Saturdaypractice,anotherRaptorteammate challengedhimtoa three-point shooting contest. The bet was that Alvin Williams could not make 11out of 15 three-point shots. Always a showman, Alvin made 10 out of 12 baskets easily and after taunting his opponent with two errant shots he calmly drained the last basketandwonthebet. BelievemeAlvin can shoot. Saturday was an eventful day for the Raptors. After amornifigpracticc from 11 a.m. to 1p.m., they were to play an intrasquad game in front of a sold-out crowd at the PAC at 5 p.m. The game was such a popular ticket that it sold out 40 minutes after the ticketswent on sale. There was also a pep rally for the Raptors from2:30 to 3:30 inwhichRaptors analyst Chuck Swirsky and general manager Clcll Grunwald were present to meet and greet the fans. h basketball clinic followed from 3 3 0 to 5 in which the assistant coaches taught fans some of the fundamentals of basketball. At 5:30pm, the intrasquad game began. It was amazing to see the amount of support theRaptors hadm\Vaterloo. Che fan told me he hadlined up four hours before the game began just so that he could get a bctter seat. And luckily for him, he did so. By the time the game started, the PACwas so crammed that pcople were standmg and loohng over the shoulders of other fans w,ay above in the concession stands. As expected,the Raptors delivered an excitinggame. KrithVince's team down by as much as 30 points, Team Purple came backandhat Team\Y"hite by one point thanks to the clutch shooting of Mo Pctcs, who scored fivethree-pointers,andthegame winning three-pointer by rookie Chris Jeffr~es. Here are some highlights

With the new season starting today, there is plenty Warrior basketball fans can look forward to Ian Spitzig SPECIAL TO IMPRINT

After lastyear's somewhatdisappointLfig season, the K'aterloo Warriors basketballteam,lcd by 1I -yearveteran coach Tom IGeswetter, is looktng to improve this year. The new team will be throwing its weight around in the paint, crashingthe boards and forcing turnovers with iron-tight dcfensc. After finishingeighth in their division last ycar, coach Kieswetter has set his goals for the team a little higher. He sounded optimistic, saying that he was hoping to make the top four this Ym, This will be a challenge for the team, especially sincea few skdledveterans wdl not bc returning. These include Paul Larsen, last year's MVP; MilidragMhdrag, the defensive specialist; a top scorer on the team last year,Shane Cooney;JoshVanWeeran and a few other notables. Their absence docsn'tworry coach I(ieswetter. A strongcore ofplayersstdlremam from last par, with top scorer and rookie of thc year Graham Jarmen returning, and with some fresh faces ready to fill in as replacements, Kieswetter seemed confident in h s outlook for the team And why shouldn't he be? Last ycar's recordwas misleadmg. Overthe course of the season, after an encouraging start (winning the McGill prcscason tournament), the team lost several close games whdc having to

start two roohrs. Another reason for his optimism is that, durmgthelast f i v e p e s of the season,the team was ona quasi-streak, winning three oftheir last five games. Furthermore, with the return of co-captains Mike Sovran and Bryan Nichol andwiththc addedexpenence of thc youngerplayers, ths year's team should be more competitive and more successful. The team's strengthsare undoubtedlyits skdlleve1,itsleadersh~p through the co-captains and returningplayers andits tcamplay.Ifthe teamcan focus on these key characteristics,it should be able to evolve and strengthen throughout the year. One of the caveats, though, after ~pealung~iththe coach,istheulackof experience.T h s wdl bewhere theveterans come in. Theywillhave to teach and season the team's newer players and he$ to make them comfortable so that they can learntoplay effectively and competitivelyat the varsity level. The early seasonunfolds this Friday.Your Warnors will be facingUW Alumni here at the PAC. One week later, the team ventures over to the Wilfrid Laurier Goldcn Hawks tournament. A week after that they travel to Ottawa for a tournament and then on November 1 the team will be at home hosting the Nusmith Classic, which should be a treat toany basketball fan.

I think that the prime battle everyone'sgoingthrough is happening w~thin. G: In your lyrics, you talk about getting people to realize they aren't who they think they are.. . K: 'l'he images we try to put out to people, the images that are pushed uponus, might not always be whowe are. We might just be those things because we think it's cool to be it, or somethingin our soul feels that we'll be fulfilledifwe'rethis type ofperson, but maybe that's notwhowe really are, Maybe we're something deeper that. maybe we need to look in a different type of mirror and not just compare ourselves all the time to what society says. Maybe we really need to see who we really are. It's just a metaphor for self-awarenessand seeingwhat's beyond the surface. ' G: So how do yougo about doing this hip hop?

G: Something I wanted to talk about here was hip hop and issues around raceandstereotypes andprejudices and misunderstandings. K: Hip hop is amusic that has been evolved out of the ghettoes of inner cities, whether it's in Jamaica or the United States. Inner cities are composed of all races, from Portugese to black to white. However, this music has ended up being primarily black and Latino and now with the arrival of Eminem etcetera it's now being branched out. Other culturesare starting to grab onto hip hop.

When asked whether he would rather write full time insteadof teaching,he said that he enjoyed the teaching element and besides sometimes you need to "get away from the blasted writing." His reasoning behmd this is that too much time set aside for any one particular activitycan become quite a scary thing. The studentshere should be gladthatMcCoi-mackcontinues to teach. Those who have been in one of his classes will agree that his passion for the written word shines through in his lecturcs.Thislovcofbooks bcgan asachild.Livinginaxdent and poor area of Scotland, he enioved the escape that the ficti, , tious worldprovided.When he began writing in university, he wrote poetry to try to impress the young ladies. ltwas thereatuniversitythathc met Edwin Morgan,an accomplished Scottish-I'nglish poet. Morgan was the first writer that McCormack met and he provided the necessayencouragement. "Really all a writer needs is someone there to support you." As McCormack said, "if someone was there telling you what to write, you wouldn't want to do it anyway." FromScotland to Canada and everywherein between-McCormack has travelled extensively in Europe and has lived in both Mexico and Noahern Australia- the question remains, why would an author choose Waterloo as a place of residence?There are many places that one would think could provide much more scope for the imagination; however, for McCormack,Waterlooisas nurtwing as anywhere else. In fact, of all of the places he has visited, Waterloo is his favourite."Everywhere else has been delightful,butthey haveall hadat least

one stumblingblock, whether it be a pohtlcal or health problem " It 1s understandablewhyMcCormackwould hold this view, in 19%Waterloowas voted the cleanest spot to live in the world.

It isn't the money, the publicity or anything else that makes Eric McCormackwrite.Ofthe many things that drive otherwrlters, forhunwriting is fun, a way to pass the time.

A common lament of many Waterloo students is the lack of a local music scene What many people don't reali7e is that the lack of a sccnc is mostly due to the h t c d n u m b e r ofvenues and promoters,notdue to alackofgreatbands One band try% hard to generate some local support is Masters and Moderns Not only are we lucky enough to have them call \X1aterloo home, the majority of band mcmbers arc also students at UW Masters and Modems have been playing around southern Ontario, spreadmg their gospel of rock for about eight months The quintet consists of guitaristsJon Niem and Matthew Nip, bassist Brad Woods, drummer Chns Inch and vocalist Dan Irvme It all started with Matthew and Jon piecing together their mtncate gutarwork ChrisandBrad joinedshortlyafterwards and the band created many mstrumend songs.

I don't think there's anything wrongwithother cultures participat ingin hip hop, I just think that there's beenalotofblachmusic that has comc out of thc ghettoes that hax e been explotted and sort of changed to fit morc of a pop format In a way, the recordcompmes arelikemusicalcolonists, it's like they come mto a music, they take it over and they use the resource5tocreate whatevcrthcywant I think that's what happens with a lot of blackmusic, It starts at a certain level and then all of a sudden people explo~tit and we have to move on to somethtng else That's why hip hop was created-noonewas feelingwhat was gomg on m the seventies and eighties music so we created somethmg new and I thtnk people arc on the verge of creating other new thtngs now, too 'I hat's my biggest issue with race, that people should respect these un derground street musics that grow,

because it's ntal to the pop culture. It drives pop culture, it informs pop cultureand the bi,ggestracismissuein hip hop is that the true or~ginatorsof this music, mhether it's KRS I or wvhocver,are net er r e c o p e d f o r ~ h o the) are lt'5 never Ncw rdition, it's ala ays someband like N'S ync Ahchacl Jackson gcts made h n of, but Justin l'imbcrlake mutates him People take themusic and dowhat theywantwith it But music is for all of us It should be for everybody, if you respect the cultures of the people that created it. That's why there's other music l i e Spanishmusic and some deeper stuff that's harder for people to just take it andmanipulate it, so they just leave it alone. But I fmd black people are alway.; open to lcttmg other cultures mto their music As long as you're good and youmake people dance and laughand have fun, they're downwith you. That's beautiful but dangerous at the same time.

You know, you become a spokesperson and people like the CBC or the more intelligent aspects of our media will want togravitate to youbccause they probablyahvayswantedto talkabout hip hop but there wasn't really agood dialogue I think people are attracted tothis music because it's sayingsome thing, because it seemspositive, you know, the cover's grccn, it's about "let's go, let's move forward," you know I thinkbecause that happens, people are open to trymgit It's kind of like a new dish that people aren't afraid to try, this sort of album It's just Exit G There's this great synergy Figure IV, West Coast, Toronto
