Other faculty members are also eagerly anticipating working with someone of Sedra's calibre. Sedra is cxcitcd about his new positionand the opportunities that it will present.

something does not mean he has a right to force someone else to give it to him. It is a d g a r perversion of lailguage to say that a person has a right to ensla5e another. Once the principle that slaveryis wrong in any degree -that eveqindividual is a sovereign entity is abandoned, there is no defense left against complete dictatorship. After that a is just a matter of time. Observe the consistent march towards socialism in Canada: we have come from a relativdy free economy m the 19th century to one where the government takes away as much as 52 per cent of your income. How much higher does that number have to climb before we see that there is a fundamental, contradictton between the welfare state and property nghts -and that eventually one has lo go out the window? In the immortal worcls of Ayn Rand, "Poverty is not a mortgage on the labor of others mtsfortune is not a mortgage on achievement - failure is not a mortgage on success-suffering is not a claimcheck, andits relief is not the goal of existence m a n is not a sacrificialanmal on anyone's altar nor for anyone's cause life is not one huge hospital."

Looking at the written word




SPECULATIONS A high schooI English teacher once told me that the writer of the epic Paradise Lost, John Milton, read everythingeverwritten in the English language. This absolutely boggled my mind at the time and now, as the editor of a newspaper, it boggles even more. Clearly, the notion of reading ewrything ever written is now entirely preposterous. Everyday,we churn out enough written information to fuel countless publications around the world. Still, this nay Internet age indicates that the written word is lust not put out fast enough for most of us -no~v, me can all publish as much written word as we like, for the cost of an Internet connection. In a morld where once only specially-educated scnbes were able to read and write, this is quite a remarkable feat. This, to me, is the most signifi-


cant mark of the new world we live in. No longes is the world o f the written word controlled by a few educated tribe members. It is not even controlled by those with the moncy and influence to own the presses. We are now all creators and consumers of the written medium. Every day, more of us g m access to and take advantage of the empowerment that comes with being able to not just vocalize our ideas, but also to write them down and transmit them. People talk a lot about the control of and by the media, chancterizingmedia sourcesas dispensers of precious knowledge, weilding the power to decide what should and shouldn't be dispensed. Khile t h s may have been the case in the past, this version of media is rapidly changing.Media indcpcndent of any affilations, comprised of people from around the world and producing virtually without cost has been sprmging up and, I believe, will revolutionize the way we see and interact with the morld. 'l'he thing that is missing now, in many cases, is the credibility of these sources. \\'hen I read independent media, I often find articles about international events and I wonder where the information in such articlescame from. At Iqbrillf, we do not comr international events becauseme don't have the resources to do so properlj-. Any international coveragewe could provide for our readers would be, at best, a summary of the investigation done by other reporters. This is xvhy we stick to things that we know and can coveraccurately,namelyevents in thc univcrsiq- community. 'l'his is the step independent media will have to take before it ~amscrcdibilit\-andrespect from a large group of readers. IYhen this does happen, though, as I'm sure it will, it will entirelj,alter the \ray x-ten-the morld 1print.uwaterl

Would you side with Hitler?

YOU! OFF MY PLANET hose Americans! They never cease to amaze They've somehow managed to stay the course while sunultaneouslyappeasing their dithering, w h n g allies It's no simple diplomatic feat to satisfy the French, the Ruwans, the Chmese and s d l walk out of UN hcadquarters with a green light to invade Iraq, should that country fad to comply with the UN Security Council's most recent resolution Well, maybe not a green light More hke lack of a stop s i p Which is all that could have been hoped for anyway, now the fence-sitters (Canada included) can look the other way whde Amenca and Britain go in and do the dirty work. Because, one way or another, Saddam isn't going to cease and desist What Saddam might actually do is anybody's guess Maybe he'll launch a surprise offensive somewhere the Americansleast expect it Perhaps he'll stall for time The point is that he isn't going to wave the m hite flag \Y'htch means mihtary action by the United States -with or without the UN -is inevitable I know the folks up in the WI"PRG office probably aren't too t h d e d with this fact Yet a's hard to see why First, the skeptics wanted proof, the British and Amencans paraded out volumes of proof to complement the already well-documentedrecord of Iraqi atrocities -the gassing of Kurds, invasion of Kuwait, violations of past UN resolutions, etc. Then they insisted the US not act unilaterally: okay, they've done that too. So what more do they want?

There is a select group of hardcoreconspiracy-theonsts, academcs,activistsand the like whc insist that all this is really about oil, or American imperialism, or attacking Muslim states But a mortal threat to the West? Forget it In the desperate rummage to find some root cause whch can be traced back to Uncle Sam, the most clear and obvious arguments again5 Iraq are dismissed as being, well, too clear and too obvious. Of course, your opinion on actionm Iraq rests largelyon whether or not you really think Irac is a threat to the West or not I happen to think it is, simply because the Americans,always keen to look out for themselves, wouldn't be w i h g to pay the price -in terms of lives, money and political capital -if they weren't genuinely concerned. Selfish folks that they are, they know damn well what's in their best interests The most bizarre opponents to war are the ones who argue that the Untted States, and President Bush specificallyare actually more ofa threat and more evil than Saddam Hussein I'm sorry, but would any of these people have sided with Hitler over Churchilland Roosevelt 1didn't think so Infected with a deep hatred of America, these people convincethemselves that somehow, some way, the presidenl h e l f -like Mike Harns, Margaret ThatcherandRonald Reagan before him -really has some hidden agenda Not that he would actually care about the security of his countrymen Not that he would be pursuing justice. Not that he would value freedom -and want to spread that evil American imperialistideal to despotic dictato1 ships No, there must be some hidden agenda. Because otherwise it would make Arnenca- shock, horror -the good guys.

UNDEFEATED This week I remember an evemg a few years ago when I met up with two very good friends of mine for dinner at the Mongolian Grill,John and Diane It was an eventng that took a very awkward, but positive turn As I sat in front of my plate of food, avery strange feeling came over me Diane was tallung about everythingthat she had been up to, I tned to pay attention, but with each passing moment it became more and more difficult for me to listen. My thoughts made it virtually impossible for me to relax. For some reason, I knew that this would be the moment and I had to tell them both that I was gay. I began to play with my food, a terrible habit of mine I must have cut that stir-fried carrot up into a thousand pieces and I guess the sickly expressionon my face must

This changewasunderwayalready between his looking for a legacy project and the anti-globalization protests of the past years, he's been advocating helping poor nations more and more (with precious httle backing). The left has successfully advancedthe (likely fallacious) thinking that poverty causes terrorism, having failed to convince us that poverty is bad enough on its own (when it doesn't hurt us). Still, Canada's reaction has been to join multilateralefforts, namely Kyoto and the Iraq war if everybody else goes and the UN says a's okay.

have communicated to them just as many words because it wasn't long until Diane finally stopped talking and asked me "Is everythingok?" Without any hesitation, I answered "no " And that was when a happened It all just came flooding out I told them about how confused I felt, how scared I was and that I was in fact (deep breath) gay The sensitive person that she was, Diane just reached for my hand and sad "it's ok, we wdl love you no matter what "John just sort of sat and began to pick at his own food, taking in everythingthat I said And we all ended up having a really terrific conversation. Itwas most defmtely a momentous occasion for all three of us and neither John, D m e nor myself would ever be the same again My readers must assume now that Diane and John are much more than very good friends of mine, they are my mother and father I am sure that there might a number of you reading this article that are considering coming out to your parents in the near future To you, I have to be completely honest it will probably be one of the most

difficult thtngs you will ever do. There are few people on this Earth that know you as well as your mother and father do and I thmk that is why coming out to parcnts seems so bewildering. If you, my reader, have not yet shared your sexuahty with your mother or your father, I implore you, take your timc with a. If you do not feel ready, then you are not Don't push it There will most defmtely come a moment when it will dawn upon you that this is the instant, this is the very second that hfe will change and no, things will never be the same again. They wdl be better. With all of that being said, I don't want you to assume that all parents wdl take their chdd's "outing" as well as mine did. But when you are most comfortable, begm to develop a positive support system for yourself with friends anc loved ones Surely, then you will be better prepared for the day when you actually tell the folks. Every coming out story is different. Be careful and use caution and I trust you, yours too wdl be a positive


Feed me more GMOs Erin Gilmer and Chris Sun COMMUNITY EDITORIAL

These days people believe that an increasingpropqrtion of the fruits and vegetablesweeat aregenetically modified organisms, i c having been produced through genetic modification But what is this strangeFrankenitem ish thing called biotechnology that people are gettingallhuffy about?B a c t e d genes in potatoes and fish genes in tomatoes) I highly doubt that most cntics of biotechnologyfully understand the process they are critici~ingortheregulatoryprocesses in place to monitor the safety of genetlcdlyenpeeredproducts When I read the article in last wcek's paper about thc GMO protest at Zehrs, the first thing that ran through my mind was how incrediblyignorant some people can be Besides the fact that I'm sure not all the protestors really knew what theywereprotesting,accordmg to thc article the protestors vandalized the store by putting labels on producc. This was not apcaccful protest and I ha5 e no respect for a. If I were the Zehrs manager I would have called the police. especiallysince the protest had less to do with the store than with the federalgovernment's regulations 'I o everyonewho believes that the public should have the right to know what they're eating, let me tell you this you're eatinggenetically modified food1 But so what? Do you think that most of the f a t s and vegetables you are eating are "natural"? How about that corn? It's safe because it's natural. . isn't a, I wonder if many people know what the ancestor of modern corn looked like. In the b e p i n g , a stalk

of corn looked s d a r to a stalk of wheat Tiny kernels, hardly edible Centuriesof selectivebreeding (a supposed "natural" process) have caused modern corn kernels to become larger and more robust However, selectivebreedmg has also createdcom whichis unable to reproduce without human intervention Certainly corn unable to reproQce is m t u r a l , but such a plant was brought about by a natural process The fact that GMOs may be unnatural has little to do with the issue at hand There are many unnatural things being consumed which have a positive impact on our society already Take vaccines for example, or even iodized salt. Do you enjoy having rubella?How about goiters? Now let's talk about govern ment testing I've seen propaganda material stating that GMOs are not tested and not regulated by the government at all I have also seen mateml stating that not enough testing and regulatibn is in place First of all, stat~ngthat there is no tcsting or regulation of GMOs is wrong Having been employed at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, I became aware of the rigorous process involved in food testing, including testing for allergens Haw a look for yourself at their Web site before youmake a judgement about the government's completelackof concern (WWW inspection gc ca/english/ toce shtml) To date there is no scientificevidenceto indicate that any of the currently marketed foods of biotechnologyin Canada are hazardous to our health. And, believe me, there are far fewer government regulations in place to protect us from strange

selective breedmg than for foods created through biotechnology In my mind, selective breeding 1s less predictablethangenetic modihcation. Selectivebreeding does not allow one to choose which traits are passed on, genetic modification does In this way, we know more about genetically modified foods than we do about selectivelybred foods The compmes which produce GMOs are the people who test GMOs These results are submitted to the government for critique and, if there are no problems, approval. Some people criticize thts approval process, based on the clam that testing facilitiesare biased towards the companies who produce the GMO. However, compmeswhich test their own GMO stand to lose a lot by releasinginferior products A GMO scandalwould dcstroy the credibility of the GMO industry since it's being watch-dogged so closely by the public, the media and the goternment Compmes have everythingto gain by ensunng proper testing Their own families and loved ones are also eatiqthe product There doesn't seem to bc an alternative to self testing anyhow since the government has no money to do it. The pharmaceutical industry, which is quite well established, is regulated m the same way. What I'm trying to gei across is that people should not be so quick to take up a cause before doing their own research.

I also ltke watching Conntc Chung Tonight. When I was eight, my parents convinced me that Connie Chung was the paradigm of a successful Chinese female Now that I am (a bit) older, I watch her show and marvel at her make-up and her lapses into incoherent babbling IIer foundation mclts and forms rivers of "Sandy Beige #14" down her cheeks However, I constantly fcclthe need to justify my TV watching It's like a shoplifting habit or some thing -"No, no, I really thought that my personal assistant already paid for ~ ~ ; G U C C ; sunglassesl" -I feel guilty for indulpg in some thing frivolous.

Difficulty of remembrance

MAPS AND LEGEiDS We need RemembranceDay, not only to honour those who sacnficed their lives for our freedom but increasinglyto remember another casualty That casualtyis the Canada that used to stand for somethmg, that used to back its words with actions and used to have a meaning


ful role In thc nmld Sadly, ih~r Canada seems to bc gomg the \ ~ a v of our stoncd veterans, departing vlbranr life for rhc annals o f h~srory. In crsplacr we have mher~tecla vacillating, morally bankrupt group of leaders who spend the majority of their time running away from a firm stance on anything The Canada that dreamed of somethmg grander than its own prosperity and believed m a human destmv where tyranny and oppression would never be tolerated has been betrayed by leadership that would rather bask in the memories of past glones than actuallyaddress the difficultwork

that remains to be done. In 1916, Major Joseph Papineau asked of Canada's soldiers, "Is their sacrifice to go for nothing or wdl it not cement a foundation for a true Canadian nation, a Canadian nation independent in thought, independ ent in action, independent even m its political organization but in spint united for high international and humane purposes " He was N e d in battle two years later It is this old Canadran ideal of serving purpose or of - a higher . . belonging to something bigger than oneself that makes today's indifference and open contempt of the

sacrificesCanadians soldiers made even more galling. Early Monday morning in Montreal,vandals defacedthe city's war memord on the very day we dedicate to honouring our war veterans and dead The vandals, calling themselves the Free Poppies, covered the cenotaphin ant-war graffit~protesttng the potential war m Iraq. In a press release they defended their actions, saying they "updated" the cenotaph to prevent more soldiers from being - lulled in what it called thcTI.S. petroleum war against Iraq." How utterly selfish and short-sighted.Apparently, the vandals never considered that the only reason that they have the freedom to express their views is because Canadians and other frce nations stood up to tyranny six dec%desago and paid the price m their own blood That the vandals would abuse their freedom by desecratingthe memorial to those who gave their lives to provide it 1s beyond disgusting. Unfortunately idiocy must have been contagious in Montreal on Monday as Quebec Premier Bernard Landry used the somber and sacred

occasion to whip a dead horse, or , more accurately,make a horriblyill conceivedpitch for Quebecindependence "The liberty ofFrance, liberty of Italy, the liberty of the U.K. and the liberty for Quebec and : Canada are all components of the harmony of the world," he said He , might as well have been spraying ; graffitialongsidehisintellectual '! cousins, the Free Poppies. To compae the liberation of Europe from the Nazi jackboot to Quebec's on again off a g m affinity for sovereignty is a slap m the face to those who fought against actual oppression, instead of those who chafe under imagnedhurmliations These two examples are part of a increasingly commonaad depressmg pattern, m which groups reinvcnt the meaning of the f sacrifices our forefathers made to servetheir own interests, instead of appreciating and honouring them as the greatest sacrificeand the ereateat p f t one generation can make to another, life and liberty Wc can never hope to understand, the least we can do is remember

First, we must begin with a trip to the grocery store. Once in a while, someone worlung at your neighbourhood friendly grocer will misweigh or mislabel somethmg, maktng it cheaper than usual. Enter the lamb shanks, whichwere purchasedlocallyat about half the price they should have been. LVhat ensuedwas the planningof one of the most delicious meals in recent memory. You only need half a bottle of red wine for the lamb. So go ahead, pour yourselfaglass. After all,whatlscooking without a little tipsy creativity? . Besides,after crymgyoureyesoutover those onions,chances are that youwill be ready for a dm&.

A warm salad for a cold evening



Braised lamb shanks

6 Tbsp. olive oil 3 lamb shanks 2 onions, sltced 1 1/2 bulbs garlic pinc nuts (optional) 3 l'bsp. fresh sage, or 1 ' l h p dricd

3 'l'bsp. fresh thyme, or 1 Tbsp dried 1 Tbsp. olive oil 1 1/2 cups rcd wine 2 cups water 2 tsp. concentratedvegetable stock

Preheat the oven to325 degrees F. Season the lamb shanks with salt and pepper. Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil over high heat in a large pot. Sear the lamb shanks onall sides (you

will likely do this in two batches) and sct aside. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oiland the onions and cookuntil they are caramelized. Peel the garltc cloves but do not chop them. Add them to the frying onions. Add more onions if needed. Mash together the sage,thyme and pine nuts with a little bit of olive oil, either usmg a mortar and pestle, a small food-processor, or by chopping

thc pinc nuts and herbs and then mashing the mxture with a spoon. Smear the mixture completely allover the seared lamb shanks. Add the wine, water and concentrated stock to the onton mixture Bring to a boil and allow the mtvture to bod for 5 m u t e s . Turn off the heat. Add the lamb shanks to the bratsing mixture and cover the pot with a lid orwtth foil. Put the pot in the oven and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until the lamb is vcry tender. Remove the lamb shanks to aplate and return them to theoven to keep them warm. Bring the sauce to a boil over medium-hgh heat and allow it to reduce by half. You can then puree the mixture for a thicker sauce, strain it for a more elcpnt presentation or serve it as is. Serve with plenty of crusty bread for dipping. Serves 3. No meal can exist on one dish alone, so we decided on a salad.

Dear Secret Virgin, Good lord SV, I sure hope it was an English cucumber! Vegetables can be a poor choice for sex toys, both because of potential infection m d because they might leave bits behind.

With regards to w-anting to come across asmore expcnenced than you arc, it's understandable

Tell him right before, or shortly after and I'm sure he'll lean more towards honoured than horrified and won't have time to over analyse it. \X'ill he know or not if you don't tell him? Some guys can tell whether or not you'rc still a virgin, and some can't. Wouldn't it be better for him to hear it from you than to figure it out himsclt?

I'x e tal~enafew phpsics courses in my time at University of Waterloo and they've bcen challenging The most enpyable physics course to date is one that I was initially leery about taking. ' f i e course title is "The Physics of How Things Work." It was really this title that made me wonder if it was going to be anything worthwhile or just a bore The courses that I've taken have been pretty involved and mathematically based and t h s course toted "no math " Could it really be physics wtth no math> This school term isn't quite complete but this course, SCI 206, has been one of the most enjoyable The professor, Dr Idz~ak,needs to be mentioned sincc he is a major factorinits success. If you've ever wondered how anything w-orksyou will be fascinated with this course. It takes the physics in the world and presents it m almost a mystical way, all along illustrating how things work Now my motivation for writing this article is not to promote SCI 206, it's a popular course on its own I'd like to share with you the importance of science even if you're not an aspiring scienkst Each week I've found class very interesting and at times entertamg and last week was no cxcc@ion other than inspiring me to wnte this article. One of the many live expenments that produced "oohs and aahs" from the crowd showed smoke flowing through a metallic tube and whcn a charge was applied, the smoke stopped being emitted

through a mimaturized smoke stack It all seemed so simple and amaLing The mj stery behind thts magic can be explained by the attractton of the posittvely charged particles andnegativelycharged parttcles Try to i m a p e two magnets, the posaibe north pole of one and negative south pole of the other being brought close together The magnets are drawn to each other This principle ofattractite force is the reason for the disappear ing smoke In essence we give the particlcs (that madc up the smoke) a negative charge and the cylinder that they flow through a posai\e charge The negatively chargedparttclesare attracted to the positivelpcharged smokestack and voila, the smoke is stuck to the smokestack All great experiments usually insplre more questions All I could think of was why this technology isn't being adapted to a larger scale for industry 50 that they could stop polluting the air I posed the question to the professor, who replied that there is no legislation requiring them to do such a thing It seems like a rather naive question to me now big businesses, why spend the money if you don't have to) The whole point to this httlc story, whether you're an environ mentalist or not, is to convey the importance of being an informed individual I really thought that the smoke billowing out of smoke stackswas anecessary evil Being in the know helps us all 1he more informed we all are, the better decisionswe will make Sciencemakes some ofthe mysteries of life less mystenous

A bit of everything by ignoring the genre barrier

"I like a little bit of everything" That's probably the most common answer given when someone is asked what her favourite type of music is It lust seems that, these days, people like everything. - From alternative to htp hop, from Motown to party rock,


people are ignoringthe genre barrier and are adoptingall cultures And why not? These days, it's common to and match styles With the advent in the past decade of sounds such as "rap rock" and the more recent "old skool vs new skool" mdie rock, it seems like people are being exposed to cross hybrid genres and as a result, they get a wider variety of musical tastes So, it just seems more credible to say that you "like everything" But liklng everythinghas to be impossible Not everyone can possibly have a taste for old country,SatanicFrenchdeathmetal and contemporarynoise-beat

electronicaall at once, it lust doesn't fit into any cultural category, right) (Well, except us ) Each genre has as own feel, its own beat and even its own hairsqle So, by default, you can't even be apart of cverygcnrc, let alone like the sound, right? Then again, you just might be able to The way we see it, people might have a few songs that they enloy fromevery category,which makes them ehgible to say they like that genre You don't have to like every song ever made in that area (every genre has its Elton John after all), but you can like enough artists and songs to lay claim that you are an active listener of that genre

Maybe you're the type ofperson who lust likes to flip through radio stations Now, some people might get mad, claiming you only get "mainstream" and not the rest of the music world (but at CKMS, we can't really say that either) That doesn't mean that you don't likc music that is not on the radio you're lust perfectly happy with what the radio stations pick for you And unttl they consistentlypick somethtng you don't like, you're allowed to say that you like "everything " 'I he word "everything," m musical taste, is probably a httle diluted We obviously don't even know every variety of music that
