In fact, a woman at one company in Maryland told me that they only "recruit from schools wtth strong co-op programs" -obviously she hadn't been informed of Waterloo's role in the invention of co-op I'm frustrated because I know that Katerloo ts an amazing school and I've worked very hard to earn and keep aplace here. Despite the fact that the Lniverstty of Katerloo has every reason to he confident and tnfluenttal,we are humble, intmidated and, desptte what we say, act like a regional school more than a world wtde institution I'm not suggesting that we become elitist, but there is no reason not to take prtde in your achievements and to stnve for the top, not lust a high place

herself and hts guardians I'his information is used to determine what fraction of tuttton she should Pay Two years ago, m the 2000 2001 school year, 37 per cent of under graduate students at Yale received scholarships or grants, whtch are based purely on financialneed and not at all on academic merit Scholarshipsreceiv ed by under graduate students m that ycar ranged from $1,175 to $35,400 US, averagingat $17,141 US In that year, undergraduate tuition was $25,220 US and the cost of room and board, as estimated by the untversity,was $7,660 US This means that students who received the average grant were left paying $15,739 US and the student who received$35,100 US had$2,520US left in spending money a h i l c this funding system at private h e r i c a n ufflwrsitiesis not ideal (at Yale, the average under graduate student who received a grant still paid $15,739 for room and board in the 2000 2001 school year), we should consider somc of the features of this system as we look for creatit e ways to fund our own, desperately under- funded, schools. We are extremelylucky here in Ontario, where students pay only 25 per cent of the total cost of their

post-secondaq education Even now, though, a univcrsrty educatton is not within the reach of el erpone who qualifieq and is interested in one Addttionally, our schools are suffering tremmdouslj from the lackof hndtngthcprcccrvc Before we lookat across-the-board deregulation, could mean a reduc tton iil accessibility (lookat the example of University of Toronto's law school where students from all of Canada's law schools filed a human rtghts complamt against U of 1's faculty of la*, saying that their tultionincreases, $2,000 per year for the next five pars,will affect accessibility for students of lower we income dtspr~portionatel~), should conqider how the problem of post secondary funding has been soh ed elsewhere Especiallpat\X'aterloo,wherc about 60 percent of students are in the coop system and therefore earning money every other term, thece is room for a redi5tnbution of funding Allowing tuition to continue c h m b q and our schools to remain under funded ts not an acceptable solution Y c should learn from solutions that other institutions have come up wtth as we try to find one that work5 for us

Take a look at our school's \Yeb page, or more specifically,the co-op Web page It barely lists any of our most notable achievemcnts. To someone unfamiliar with the school, L'W might seem like a mcdiocre institution In order to push \\ aterloo from a regonal school to a world-class Institution, we must pursue several courses of action First,increasepubhc awareness, not lust tn Ontario, but also all over the world I'd e5timate that less than half of Canadians even know that \Yaterloo is the best school in Canada. Public awarenessis achieved through media exposure, aggressive corporate networking (especiallym the U S ),and branding - building a unified, luxurious, and professional mage surrounding the Univensity of \XTaterloo name University of Waterloo is already well known m Ontano, but wc must put a greater emphasis on showcasmgour achievements in the US. andwesterncanada.

Back to Berlin Karim Hasanem COMMUNITY EDITORIAL

Hey you guys, I found more stuff to hate, so yay for me, nay -yay for all of us So if I can tear your attention away from the homoerotic goings on of the latest episode of Smallville,we can get down to business I hate the name I(itchener hate hate hate hate hate hate hate, hate it Never hked the way it sounded Before 1916,however,Kitchenerwas known as Berlin This name should be restored for three important reasons First, the German Mennomtcs settled ths region and cultivated the land lT1ell,to get techmcal, the land was claimed by the British Crown and then granted to the SLI Nations Indians for their loyalty dumg the American war of independenceThe Native Amen cans sold the land to Colonel Richard Beaslev, who sold the land

to a group of Mennonite farmers, who then formed the German Company 1ract As far as I'm aware, no natipes were sodomized and slaughtered for this particular plot of land, which, considermg the history of colomal expansion, is just weird, but okay, whatever, let's lust move nght along W l d e our notion of German tolerance of other races may still be coloured by the actions of Nazi Germany, GermanMennonites have long been an exceptionally tolerant group of people It was this clunate ofacceptancethat attracted large numbers of immigrants In 1833, the hamlet of Berlin was named in honour of the heritage of its settlers Try to remember the word "tolerance" and the phrase "named m honour of," because they're going to play an important ro1~ in understanding my latest rant Second, the name l3erlin acknowledged and valued the cultural heritage of its inhabitants Berlin

was considered the German capital of Canada, and probably std is However, World War I brought with it an ugly tide of anti-German sentiment In an act that immortal ized an otherwise passing mood of bigotry, the name Berlin was abandoned in favour of Kltchener Everything that the city's culture was supposed to stand for was demcd out of exstence for a name that would sound better to English ears But why IGtcheneG Third, the town of IGtchener is named after a steamingpile of shit GeneralHoratioHerbert Kitchcner (1850 1916),was anEnglish d t a r y officer during the peak of Bntish impend eqansion Among his many achievementswas the massacre of the Sudanese army during the battle of Karan in 1898 Lbhy were the Bntish fightingthe Sudanese?

A planner's protest to housing bylaw

MAPS AND LEGENDS In these pages last week, Joe Nethery took aim at the Feds efforts to oppose the City of Vi'aterloo's restriction on new student lodging houses and successfullymanaged to touch every base for a grand slam of completelyincorrectplanntng arguments Joe starts off by saying that the removal of the restriction on student housing -no new lodging house may be established within 75 metres of an existing one -would "inevitably lead to a real estate frenzy" and that property values and rents would rise. Excuse me for pointing this out, but having more landlords renting out more rooms would pull prices down, not up. Supply and demand,Joe Property values would indeed go up, as current residents would be able to sell their property to whomever they want and not have the city telling them what they can and can't do with their house. As it stands now, lodgmg houses are overvaluedand can


charge high rents because they don't have to worry about any new competition moving in next door Students and residents both lose under the current system, the only winners being the landlords Next, Netheq questions the desirabthty of establishingmore student housing close to campus, implying that a is "isolatiomst " LVrong - it's good plamng The City of Waterloo desperately wants people to get out of their cars and onto buses, or even better onto sidewalks Enabling people to live near where thcy w o r k or where they study -allows them to walk or bike instead of dnving Having more students living closer to campus would mean less congestion on University Avenue and Columbia Street and less pollutants m the air, a desirableplanninggoal if there ever was one As for student ghettos, they are much more a product of shady landlords and poor enforcementof the law than seedy students and their rambunctious lifestyle Ifcities with large student populations were half as vigilant in enforcing their property standards by laws as they were with chasing around parlung violations, Columbia Street would not look l&e file footage from Sarajevo He then moves onto dumping on student council for their direct

stance on this issue and wondeis why thcy aren't being more "concihatory " IfNethery hadchecked the hstory of this issue he would have noticed that the restriction has becn in place for almost a decade and that the Feds have been"conci1iatory" the whole time And what was the result of all of t h s quet and polite diplomacy with city hall? Absolutely notlung, except that now thc mayor characterizesstudents as arsonists and the city's planning staff is considering doubling the restriction to 1SO metres Clearly a new approachwasr e p r e d and council delivered I stop here to correct myself; NethEry only h t a tnple of inepti tude I Ie had two very correct, very important points "students do not vote" and "until we use what rights we do Aave to instigate change, get used to being laughed off" The city pays no attention to our concerns because we don't vote and city councillors don't thtnk we ever will Students showing up at the polling booth is the second thing that must happen if student interests are to receive considerattonatcity hall The Feds took the first step by demonstrating that they w d d no longer accept the city's doubletalk Now they must work with the rest of us to take the second

Minding Waterloo's business Neal Moogk-Soulis COMMUNITY EDITORIAL

In response to the letter to the editor 1astweekcnticizingImpnnfs recent publication of stories dealing with issues on UW campus, Imprint's mtssion statement, as found in the policies and procedures, says that Imprint's mtssion is to provide "the University of Waterloo community with informa tion, entertainment and a forum for the discussion of issues that affect the community " The author of last week's letter implied that both Launer stories PKLU student umon is holding its own, October 4,2002, KTLU Cordcditor-in-chief tcrmi nated, September 20,20021were not of importance to Waterloo students and as such did not deserve coverage As the author of both stories in question, I beg to differ In the first place, a significant number of U\V students study at Tamer and vice versa As such, these ~ u e do s mean a lot to some U\V students Impnnf, as the campus newspaper for this demo graphic, has a responsibility to inform them Second, for the week that I covered the issue of Cordeditor in chief Maneesh Sehdeb's firing, at the beginning of the week a did not look as if the Curd would be published at all that week The Cord production staff did manage to rally and produce a paper for that week, I'he issue still stands that an unexplained firing by a campus orgamzation is news for UW students Granted, the story was long, but in order to inform the student5 as much as possible, a was necessarytocoverallanglesof the story and leave nothing to conlecture. Thrd, with reference to the WLUSA strike, UW students should be aware ofwhat is affecting the post-secondary community as whole and not simply what happens w i t h our own Rtng

Road At the time of this writing, the WLUSA labour dispute had entered its fifth week with httle sign of a resolution and the Umversity of Guelph staff association had voted to st&e pending the breakmg off of their labour negotiations which have been under way since the b e g i m g of June \Thy should UE' students not be concerned with labour disputes as the two closest universities to Waterloo, both of which with UW has close academic ties,includingthe TRELLIS system University of Guelph enrolment numbers about 15,000 students, what would happen if that group put added strain on the Waterloo library system, practically doubling the size of the UW library usership? Granted, the space which both stories were p e n was large in comparison to the rest of the news section Fach of the three stories m question were written ~ i t the h best of intentions to cox er as many sides of each issue as possible to avoid the possibili~of being a~cusing~biasedandunresearched writing As a smgle reporter, I am only responsible for my own stories and not the enttre section IIad the news section in each of those three issues had more content as a whole, then perhaps my stones would not have stood out However, due to circumstanceswhich I did not control, local on-campus news was not adequately copered andmy stories tookprominence in the section I was informed afterwards that my energies could hax~ebeen better employed coveringthese events, but again I beg to differ As I have shown before, the storieswhch I covered are impor tant to UE' students and it can be argued that they are lust as important as many of the other stones that Impnnt runs, save for the fact that the incident dtd not happen on the UW campus See WLU COVERAGE, page 13

Kitchener: end this honour to genocide V

Continued from page 11

For his actions, he was awarded an honorary degree. In what, I have no idea, maybe a bachelor in the arts of genocide or something. A year later, he was made chief of staff to Lord Roberts during the South hfrican\X'ar. Left to carry out Roberts' plans to crush the Boer resistance,General IGtchener employeda "scorched eartWpohcy, mcarung he had 30,000 homes and farms destroyed Oh, he also interned 115,000Boers into concentraBoncamps. Concentrati011 camps. Of the 115,000,they were mostly women, children and the elderly. In fact, this marked the birth of concentration camps or at least, when people began to call them that. Emily Hobhouse was an Englishwoman who was the first civilran to visit the c m p s and lobby for better condrtions. \Yrhen she attempted to visit the camps a second time, after already having received permission to do so, Kitchener stopped her. He only allowed her to visit one camp, Bloemfontein. In Bloeinfontemn, she was horrified to find the condition of the prisoners, especially the sick and dying children, who

were dcnied basic necessities for survival. There were in total 115 camps for whites and 80 camps for blacks. 'l'he blacks were, of course, used for slave labour, because that is just what the British did back then. From 1901to 1903, almost 18,000 imprisoned Boers died, 22,000 of them children. The victlms of the camps died because of overcrowding,inadequate nutrition and unhygien~cconditions. The official number of blacks who died in camps is placed at 14,000 although it is suspected to be closer to 34,000.For thcse acts of heroism, Kitchener was awarded with more trtlcs: viscount, field marshal, consul general, earl and secretaryof state during\WVI. The only detail of his sordid life story that made me laugh was the manner of his dcath -while on the 1XM.S. Hanphire during a mission to Russ~a,the ship h a a German mine. Ship sank. I Ie drowned. 1,4ggled. This happened m 1916,the year Berlin, Ontario mas renamed in his honour. Good stuff. The funny thing is, it's not as though hts actions in Sudan or South Africa are skeletons UI the closet of his career; they are the victories for which he is celebrated. The name of our

neighbouring city is a direct commemoration of his military "adv-entures." It's a shame no one waited until the end of the twentieth century to rename Berlin. Tfthey had, we might have had such gems today as Hitlcr Town-Waterloo. Or Pol Potville-Waterloo. Or G.W. Bush-Waterloo. A damn shame mdeed. So let's review. German Mennonites settle the area, cultivate the land and buld the infrastructure. Check. Mennonites' tolerant outlook encourages other immigrants to settle in the area. Check. As a reward for their tolerance, the German inhabitants of Berlin arc greeted with antiGerman sentiment and the city is renamed after agenocidalmaniac. Check. \'lTell, colour me tickled to be here! I'd like to staff a campaign to change the name of Kitchenerback to Aerlm. I'm sure many of you could give a damn. I'm sure there are many arguments not to change thc name, like financial costs. Frankly, I couldgive a damn. If there are costs, good. 1 hope it will be a lesson a costly lesson m naming an entire city after a coldblooded little troll. \Y7e out.

WLU coverage: Imprint wnter seeks greater scope Continued from page 11

Furthermore, each story grew as I researched further. As a reporter who feels the necessity of creatinga balanced story by givingeach side equalprominence, I could not shorten my research time. In the case of the '&%USA stories, each one took approximately six hours to researchand two hours to write. This is more time than I have spent on writing term papers, but w ~ t hmy term paper, only the professor will be reading it and not a host of in&viduals who have a vested mtercst in the issue at hand. In that van, by the time we had discovered the lack of local content, I had already researched andwrittenmy stories and was unable to contribute more. By informing students of

issues relevent to students in gcneral, I have hoped to make them more aware of the world around them. The hope is that once we see that there is more that just U\W and the little events here on campus, students will have a greater appreciation for this community and their world in general. In closing and as a final suggestion to readers who are unhappy with the coverage that Imprint has given to select stones deemed unimportant to \Vaterloo students in the face of other issues: volunteer to write those stories yourself. A volunteer organization, as Impri~~tis, works only as well as its volunteers do. The more volunteers that we have, the more stories we write and the more issues are brought to U\V students.

Helping out a fellow student, the turnkeys launch into a flurry of activity.

A desk for all seasons Lauren Staines SPECIAL TO IMPRINT

Virtually emry studentat Universityof \Vaterloo will, at some point,visit the Turnkcp desk. The Turnkey desk is part help-desk,partcoffeebar andan invaluable resource for UW students. Nancy O'Neil, coordinator of special events, booktngs and programs, has been working at in the SLC for almost six years and says that the turnkey desk is "the greatest place to work. .. everybodygets along sowell." Although she admits that being open 24 hours a day can be taxing on the staff,they are very dedicated. The Turnkey desk is unique to UW. 'We've had people come from other universitiesto see how thc desk runs," said O'Neil. TheTurnkeysendeavour to answer any questions, no matter how bizarre. If someone approaches the deskandneeds to speak to a lawyer, for example,the Turnkeys will help the student find the phone number of a local lawyer. Sometimes students ask the employees questions that cannot possibly be answered."I get people calling me up to ask me Fobin's number.]

I'm like, 'Robin who? 'Oh, I don't know, she's a student here,' " said TurnkeyHala Iaalaf. IChalaf says that many people approach the desk just to talk. 'We're here to be friendly. . . [but] we have ways of dealing with it if it gets too annoying." I M a f said that although shegetshit onquiteoften,she's "never been completely bothered enough" to feel threatened. One Turnkey employee,Tara-Lee Markides, said that her job includes "cleaning up puke, disrupting bar fights, sometimes seeing guys run around naked, talking to the police, retrieving furniturethat's beenmoved to the street . . . it's a barrel of monkeys." Althoughshe saysthattheTurnkey desk is a great place to work, one drawback tothe jobis that "it's thought that the Turnkeys know everything. We don't, butwe know where to look it up." Ona typical\Wednesday night, she gets ten phone calls from people wanting to know the status of the Bomber's infamous line-ups They would hke to clear up two misconceptions: "Feds tickets mean Feds office!" exclaims IChalaf, as her co-worker Markides adds, "Fcds

would make a lot more money if they had us selling tickets here." In addition, they do not give change on the weekends anymore,because they run out of change and the banks aren't openon theweekends.Thisisapopular request - usually from people who want quarters to do their laundry -andindeed,duringthe the 15 minutes of the interview. no fewer than three people asked for change The exasperation disappearsfrom their voices as they dcalwith customers. Both Turnkeys are outgoing and friendly,whichclearlymakes customers more comfortable. Between their lively chatter about how bizarre some of thelr tasks are, they politely help all of the customers lined up in front of the desk. Bothembody O'Neil's statement about the employees of the Turnkeydesk beingpolite, sweet and willing to help anyone. They are also able to laugh at the quirks their iob entails. "One time I got a call asking the exchange rate for rupees. L~ke,they were serious, with the accent and everything, y'know? And I'm like, call the bank," says Khalaf, laughing. "I get the weirdest calls, I'm serious." -

Q. As a birthday gift some friends of mine (both male and female) gave me a selection of sexual items that included a rubber vagina. I found it funny and was touched by their kindness. Also, I think the rubber vaginawas expensive. Unfortunately, I would never use the item. I feel bad about this; what do you think? Also, I pride myself on being comfortable with my sexuality and it bothers me that T am uncomfortable using the item. Women use vibrators and they are comfortable with them and society deems it acccptzble. Why am I uncomfortable with the rubber vagina? Sexually confused


A.You're very1ucky;not everyone gets a rubber vagina for his birthday! My thought on the female versus male usage of sex toys is that for women to simulate penetration they need something beyond fingers. Thus, women are requred to use something beyond their own body to satisfy this curiosity.Men have everythingthey need to happily pump away. Now let's consider the unwanted vagina itself. Sex stores usually have a no-return policy, thankfully, so taking it back and trying to get something else is not an option. That leaves you with giving it to someone else (kind of creepy), throwing it away or trying it out. My advice would be to view this

Q. My boyfriend and 1have been together for a few months and he is starting to complain that our sex life is getting boring. He recently suggested getting someone m volved in a threesome. I like the idea, especiallysmce I enjoy flaunting my body in front of other women T Towever, my boyfriend has a crush on one of my room mates and wants her to be the one. I don't want this, because I find my roommate unappealing and I can't picture myself rolling around naked with her, much less sharing my sex toys with her. I don't want my boyfriend to break up with me for not wanting to participate. what should I do? 7hree's company

A. My reaction when I started reading this was, "Okay, he wants a threesome; she doesn't," but then you said you're into it. Your boyfriendis lucky. More men than women are interested in a minage a troi~and since the standard fantasy requires two women and one man, the numbers just don't work out. This gives you leverage. Tell him you would prefer someonc that neither of you knows instead. Make him buy new toys for the big event. Trust me, if you're willing, there's no way he's going to let you go over a few conditions. Additionally, I'm a bit worried that he wants to do this with a roommate he has a crush on. A threesome should be about wild sex between the two of you, not a way for him to screw some woman he has the hots for.



Blackshop a romantic experience

Blacbhop Restaurant 20 Hobson Street, Galt 621-4180 A moonlit walk is the perfect ending to a meal at the Blackshop, both to prolong the romance of the experience and to compensate for any overindulgence. My entire experience ofthe Blackshop was estraordinary;thefoodwas decadent, the service friendly and the atmosphere casualyet elegant. While we waited for our table, my companion and I perused a wine list as extcnsive as one would expect of SolC's sister restaurant. I ordered a glass of Fetzer C;ewurztraminer ($6),a sweet Californiawhite, whde my companion had a glass of Rosemount Shiraz-Cabernet($7),a dry Australian red. By the time winewas poured, our table was ready. Although we had planned on sharingan appetizer, I couldn't rcsist the escargotala Bourguignonne ($7.90) while smoked salmon ($9.90) is one of my companion's favourite dishes, so we each had our own. The escargotswere tender, bathedin butter infused with garlic and, I suspect, shallots. I was surprised that chopped tomatoes and onions were served alongsidethe escargot, but found that spooning the mixture on bread dipped in escargot butter yielded pleasing results. The lox-style smoked salmon was excellent, servedwith rosti potatoes (a fried potato patty), red onions, capersand sour cream. My entrbe was a rack of lamb ($27.90), prepared medium-rare and encrusted with dijon mustard. I was impressed by the chefs restraint in applying the dijon; too much and the mustard overwhelms the lamb. The dish was further enhanced with a Burgundy jus, which tasted equally good with the mixturc of seasonal

vegetables (carrots,cornand broccoli) as with the lamb. The single disappointment was the mashed potatoes, which were bland and a bit dry. My companion ordered the special, aveal chop ($27.90).As my experience of veal is mostly limited to schmtzel and osso bucco, this dish was a surprise. The vcal was grilled medim-rare like a steak, but the meat was almost white and the flavour was quite mild. The long rib attached to the veal chop was frenched,enhancing the presentation of the dish. It was served with a dclicate,creamy sauce and asparagus wrapped in prosciutto, in addition to the samc vegetables and mashed potatoes as before. This dish would be an excellent addition to the regular menu. For dessert,we shared a slice of chocolatetrufflemousse cake ($6.50).My companion commented that the cake remrnded him of the inside of a truffle and declared it the first truffle cake he hadexperienced that was worthy of the name. Indeed, the darkchocolatelayer had a properly bitter edge, whlle the white chocolatewas sweet and rich.A perfect end to what may just have been the perfect meal. Dinner for two cost about $110 plus a well-deserved tip.

Guelph cleans up pig manure Scientists put rat DNA into pigs to reduce phosphorus pollution Jennifer Holdner SPECIAL TO IMPRINT

Scientists hate developed a waj to decrease farm pollution from pigs Phosphorous in pig manure causes dangerous agriculturalpollution and results in increased algae and dead fish To counteracttlus, Dr borsberg, a microbiologst at the Unwerslty of Guelph, has genetically engineered a pig to produce less phosphorous in its fecal matter This may lead to a reduction in aquatic pollution from agricultural run off Phosphorus frompigs is a significant environmmtal concern forwater systems P~gsproduce,onaverage,5 5 liters of manure per day Farmers spread the manure over crops as ferth7ei in order to dispose of a The manure must be spread over large areas to provide the crops with adequate amounts of nutrients After pears of spreading manure, the phosphorous buldsup in the soil and rain oftenwashes it into the local water systems Algal blooms, toxin production and eutrophication ( w terpollution caused by excessiveplant nutrients) occur as a result of this phosphorous ltis estimated that use ofthe engineeredpig can reduce land use by 33 per cent Dr borsberg and his team have inserted a DNA construct, made of E . d ' and rat DNA, into a pig em bryo The product is a transgenic pig (containing DNA from a foreign or-

ganism),termed the Enviropig,which produces the enzyme phytase In normal pigs, 50 80 per cent of phosphorous from grains is attached tophyttcacid,makmgitunavailablefor pigs toabsorb Ifthe phosphorus and phytic acid combinatton is not abd in sorbed by the pig, it is gotten i ~ of the fecalmatter Phytasc is produced m the pig's mouthand is activated by the stomach acids It breaks down the phy&cacid, thus reIeasing the phosphorus so it can be absorbed into the pig's abdomen The Enviropig, having more phyta\e than normal pigs, is able to absorb more phosphorus, which means less of a is released into the em ironment via fecalmatter According to Dr Porsberg, the phosphoms absorbed is used by the pigs to meet their nutntionalrequirements and any extra is excreted in the urine Phosphoms is an essential nutrient for pigs and is commonly found in most feedgrams Pigsabsorb approximately one-third of the phosphorus in feed Currently pig farmers have been addtng phytase directly to pig feed which reduces the amount of phosphorus excreted by 25 to 35 per cent The Fn~iropigcan reduce the amount ofphosphorous by at least 60 percent Toachieve the same resultsby addmg the enzyme to the feed is expensive,costFngthe farmersabout$8 to $10 per pig Dr Forsberg and his team have

Warriors stun Laurier in an epic match Goalkeeper Alex Hearn talks about the freak goal Ryan Chen-Wing IMPRINTSTAFF

Men's soccer beat their down-the-street r1x als, the national champion Golden Hawks, to show that there are two soccer teains m townand that the7 are the better team. The briday before Thanksgiving, six days after tying Laurier at IJnivcrsity Stadium, the Ly'arriors won 3-2to keep second place and a home play-off opener \vithtn reach. Led by captam Stephen Flatt the team kept high energy.They stayedfocusedon the play and kept the pressure on so Laurier didn't have time to plav . . around with the ball and build up a s confidence in the p m e . This strategy evidently paid off. "I told the guy to go out in the first 15 minutes and dictate thepne, coachPeterMackie said. Go out, there's got to be lots of ball mowment, but be physical with them. Nothing cheap." Mackie talked about the start of the p m c saving, "You're playtng on grass, go out and set the tempo." 'l'hc IIawks got a bit ch~pp!.at times and swore and cursed throughout the match, prompting the referee to handout tu o cautions. "1 getalongwith the boys but I'm \ cry strict wlth them. In-ant them to respectthegame, the officials and the players. It is tough. It is an emotionalgame. There was an~gl~incideilt out t11ere;the coaches moreat oilc ofmyplayers,and I didn't like that," Mackie said. hlark Accardi scored the onl!.goalofthe first

half. Into the second half Accardi scoredapinina run from the half after beating two defenders. Laurier moved ahead when Daniel Dillon scorcd off aNikiBudalic frcc-kick. The team found some scormg opportunies but couldn't fimsh.They alsogave Laurier some openings. After one chance Flatt yelled, "That was agift; no more chances." Jeffliiorino scored offaNickIUassencorner kicktopull theXkrriors aheadby two, fora score of 3-1to restore a two goal lead. Moviiigintoinjury time, the last few m u t e s before the fiilal whstle, Laurier got a clever but sneaky goal. \Xrarrior goalkeeper Alex Hearn grabbed the ball after some close play m the box. As he held the ballandprepared to clear it,Hawk Kordo Doslii headed the ball out of his hands andkickeditinthenet tomakcitaoi~e-goalgame, 3-2.

K-Pet takes a neo-lounge approach Two UW graduates return to the Bomber to perform K-Pet Bombshelter Pub October 18


It seems that lately all IGtchencr-Waterloo has to offer,musicallyspeaking, is watered-dow-n punk and screamy metal. Fortunately, K-Pet is herc,with a style they describeas "neo-lounge." In an interview with Imprint, bassist CliffSnyderanddrummerKarl Snyder talked freely about the state ofmodern music and pretty much anything I threw at them. "There ain't nothing else like it," saidCliff. "There's a shortage oftnusic that sounds like us." Listing Macsirc Attack, Portishead, 'livin and DJ Shadwv as some of their main musical influences, Cliff says that he and brother/band-mate I h r l (who does synthesizersand drums) like to laugh at bands like Nickelback. "It's funny that it catches on so well." K-Pet (the name, accordmg to the Snyders' was purchased at K-Mart as a "bluelight special,") starfed in 1998 with@taristI(azuto Okawa and IGrl

K-Pet's album cover hints that interesting things are to come. usingcomputer equipment and making heady techno-sounding music. In 2000, they made the transition to live music and also added Cliff By 2001 they saw the addition of Natalia Lorbach, a vocalist with xvhat Cltff described as a"jazzy"roice, cvmpletu ~ what g Karl called KPet's "very modern souiid." T Tc later added that I<-Pet's music clearly shows that they ha\-e their roots in electronic music and that "it doesn't sound like [they] came out of a garage."

The band is strorlgly connected to the K-\Y area and thc University of \\;'aterlooinpatticular. Cliff graduated in 1002 with a music from ( Grebe1 (a degree that took him six ycars to complete, he is happy to admit) aud K Pet singer I .orbach alsograduatedin 2002 with a degreein health studies from LW'.Guitarist Okawa is now a sociology student at the University of Guclph. "It's a really good school to find yourself in. I didn't know what T

Karl described I<-Pet'sappeal,saying that "people \villlisten towhat's coming along," and that KPet's music is LkeMassive Atacli'sandPorttshead's, but less depressing. "It doesn't completely lounge out, but at the same COURTESY OF K-PET time. it doesn't kill vou." Cliff told of a fan who approached him after a wanted to do when I came here, so I show and said, "For a whde, I felt like took a bit of time and I fuund my I should bc wearing a tusedo and passion, and then they had the right sittingata table, but thenlater on1 felt program for me as well," said Cliff, like I should be jumpingup and dancwho also wrote for Itzpri/ilul his first ing around."
