CECS building secures against resumes Christine Baker EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
Many students trying to drop off resumes in the CECS building were turned away Monday night by a member of the student securiq service assigned to lock up the building. Students were waiting in line to enter the bin rooms to drop off resumes for the first job posting of the term when a security person informed them that theywould have to leave. Exact figures are not available as to how many students werewaitingin line. According to OlafNaese, communication and public relations administrator for CECS, the office hours in the CECS building end at 4:30 p.m. although it remains open to students unul 8 p.m. The CECS employs a security person to be there while the b d d m g is unlocked after office hours end. At 8 p.m. on Monday September 22, the member of student security informed the students waiting in line to enter the bin rooms that the room would be closed and that they would have to leare.

According to Sergeant Shortt, the U W police were called for assistance when "there was some difficulty" in locking up the building. Although some students had left, the officer came to the decision to allow students to place their resumes in the appropriate bins and then secure the building. "A lot of students came in Tuesday morning to let us know that they hadn't been able to hand in resumes [the night before]," saidNaese, "Everyone who came in [Tuesday], their resumes were accepted. That meant in some cases sending them off in their own packages. It's the least we could do for students."

New affordable rental housing coming to Fischer-Hallman area Commission of townhouses prompts "improved look" at the issue Kimberly Mackhan IMPRINT STAFF
The housing plan proposal voted in by regional councillors last week requires that 25 one-bedroom townhouses be built with taxpayer subsidies on Fischer-Hallman Road North, just north of Erb Street. The proposal provides an "improved look" at housing issues and elevates the importance of housing in the context of other citywide issues. "We have a housing crisis right here in Waterloo region," saidDeborah Schlichter, a former member of the board of directors at the Ontario NonProfit Housing Association. "Many people seem to think only large cities likeToronto experiencehousingproblems and homelessness, but this isn't true." Nonetheless, these subsidized units willnot be ready until 2004. "We also have two universities and a community college that attract many students to this area," said Schlichter. "With a tight rental market and with rent costs eatingup more and more of one's income, there are increasing numbers of individuals and families that are finding themselves homeless and ha\-ing to use temporaq sheiters."
In 2001, the Waterloo Region had the third Lowest apartment vacancy rate in Canada even though taxpayers had helped to build 627 new homes. Regional councillorsexpectto construct 1,000units ofhousing by 2006; however, two precedingproposals for social housing in Waterloo were unsuccessfulin overcoming zoning barriers or other neighbourhood resistance.
"Many people think only large cities like Toronto experience homelessness, but this isn't true." -Deborah Schlichter former board member, ONPHA
Local municipalitieshave acknowedged housing as a crucial problem in their visioning development and restructuring process and the regional council is investigating "potential in-
centives that they cangive to builders of affordable housing." Afforhble housing is where tenants do not pay more than 30 per cent of gross income on rent. At present, there are over 4,000 households on "rent-geared-to-income units" waitinglists for social housing or not-forprofit housing in the Waterloo Region. For the fall term, the main concern ofUW's residencesis usually toguarantee anoffer ofresidence to &st-year students. The city's lodging licence, by-law, prohibits licences from being gven outwithin 75 metres of another licensed lodging. This by-law is not retroactive and pertains only to Classtwo lodging houses. Such accommodations generally have four or fivc inhabitants.

"You have city officials tehng you different :hings because by-laws really do contradict," he ;aid, "and they're selectively enforced. That's low they get around the problems." Noting a solution to the problem, Skrzydlo juggested, "we need to clean up [the city's byaws]. Then we need to enforce them. W h c h neans that housing standards aregoing togoup md everyone's going to be happier. K'e also need :o have an appeals process in there. Sometimes situations will change and the by-laws mill no onger apply. We make by-lams easy to understand, then strictly enforce them, then make an ippeals process so you can change [the by-laws] JOU need to." Skrzydlo emphasized, "By-laws are an allmcompassing issue, of which housing is only m e small part." Another key issue to both candidates was iscalresponsibility.Accordingto Icerrigan, "one :hing that students don't really realize is that :hey're actually paying property taxes when they ?ay rent. p h e City of Waterloo] is always raising :axes on students' houses as well as those of the rest of the communiq. "We don't want to see taxes being raised in :he city, on the heads of the residents, on the neads of students." Skrzydlo agreed with the need to focus on fiscal responsibility, touching on an issue that ias been of great concern to city residents as of !ate."The City ofWaterloo signed a contract [the developmentof RIMPark] that, as near as we can tell, it didn't understand and forwhich the courts said 'you're responsible for millions of dollars.' rhat's huge. I think we need more transparency In government to prevent p~ablemslike this." Both Kerrigan and Skrzydlohave close ties to the UW student body, each carrying extensive resurnCs of campus involvement over the course 3f their university careers. "Spikey" Mike Kerrigan is best known for his position as last year's Vice-president Internal for the Federation of Students, as well as for his volunteer work as a UUJResidence Don and four-time member of the Village Orientation Committee (VOC). A charismatic representative of the Feds, Kerrigan addressed issues ranging from community involvement to religion during his tenure as vice-president. Stephen Snuggles Skrzydlo is known for his involvement with UW student government, especially where the Faculty of Mathematics is concerned.Sincehe beganhis universitycareer in the fall of 1997, Skrzydlo has served as student senator for the mathematics faculty, math student councilor for the Federation of Students, member of the Feds' board of directors, executive on the Mathematics Society, math frosh leader and orientation director. (For the curious: Snuggles is honestly Skrzydlo's legal middle name. His parents gave him the power to choose the name he wanted; when he was five years oldsnuggles was what he choseandit has stuckwith himever since. "Some
Kerrigan and Skrzydlo don their voting lists. They're so ready for this! people only know me as Snuggles," he noted, "and would not know who Stephen Skrzydlo is.") Chris Edey, president of the Federation of Students, was avdable to comment on the news that a student and an alum were running for seats on Waterloo's city council. "I think it's absolutely great," stated Edey. "We've always said that students are active members of this community and nothing demonstrates that more than students stepping up and saying they've got a solid set of ideas and they have a solid grasp of what this community needs. They're going to say, 'I care about my community, and I'm going to do things to try and make it better."'
"Some people only know me as Snuggles, and would not know who Stephen Skrzydlo is." -Snuggles Edey also commented on what it would be like to have a student or a recent alum sit at city council. "I think that having a l r e c t voice at city council, I think that would be fantastic. When youlookat it, one out of every four peoplein this city is a student. It only makes sense that, out of five councillors, you would have people who are representingthis fairly largepart ofyour community. "We have a lot of competent, intelligent people at this university, and I'm really glad to see that people are stepping forward to say that what's gone onin the pastisn'tgood for the city, isn'tgood.for students,isn'tgood for anybody." When askedwhether or not the Federation of Students might endorse either of the candidates, Edey stressed the need for fairness in this situation. "I support any studentwho is standing up
and saying that they want to make a positive change," Edey stated. "As for the Federation itself, we're here to get students out and voting and promote a better deal for students overall, so it's not our position to endorse one group over another." Yaacov Iland, Feds president in 2001-2002, was also available for comment on the news. He largely applauded the efforts of Kerrigan and Skrzydlo, noting perceived benefits to having UW students run for seats on city council. "For students to really be represented in the municipality," noted Iland, "we need to make sure that there's a voice at council municipally. And for the residents,it's alsovery much to their advantage to make sure that that voice is there, because they canmake sure that they candealwith issues before they blow up." Iland also looked at the issue from a resident's point of view: "If a student is the elected representative of residents, the person has that much more time to prioritize the concerns of residents. As far as dealing with any issues, it's advantageous to the permanent residents as well." When asked if he could see any negatives to a student planning to run for city council, Iland noted, "I would just hope that whoever's runningwould be committed to serving their entire term of office. Other than that, I don't think there would be any problems withit. Particularly, Kerrigan and Skrzydlo]both have tons of experience with political and management issues. That would be something that I would want to see from any candidate."

Exceptional children and evil the focuses of two new courses Alina Skala SPECIAL TO IMPRINT
UW's Continuing Education Office is committed to providing non-credit courses and training programs, responding to the community's educational needs and bringing C'W's expertise to the community.This week, the officeintroduced non-credit versions of two popular on campus courses-Evil, taught by ProfessorDa\ldSeljak of the psychology department at St. Jerome's University,andExceptiona1 Children, authored
by Professor Robert Seim of psychology. Seim's course aims to provide an introduction to those who interactwith exceptional children, including parents, counsellors, teachers and rehabilitation personnel. Itwill aim to cover such topics as learning and physical disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, gifted children and developmental disorders. Evil is approached from a religious studies perspective. Accorlng to the course calendar,it examines unprecedented acts of evil, from colonialism and genocide to the Holocaust. Under
Seljak, students wiU look at how various world religons define evil and how they suggest evil can be overcome. Both courses offer students a chance to expand their intellectual horizons without tests or papers, and for a fraction of the cost of the full credit versions offered on campus or by &stance education. Registration for continuing education courses runs year round. Both Evil and Exceptional Children are offered for $195, plus GST.

Waterloo student housing survey goes smoothly Christine Baker
Thc Feds, in co-operation with the City of K7aterloo,conducted a housing sunreyofthe Lester-Sunvieu-neighbourhood near campus on Tuesday September 23. According to Chris Edep, Feds president, the city of Waterloo has been enthusiastic about the project after being approached in June. "They'vegiven theirresearchresources and expertise," said Edey. "It will make our results more authoritative." Around two dozen volunteers turned out to help canvas the area bounded by Lester, Columbia, Hazel and University Avenue. Accordingto Durshan Ganthan, a fourth year arts student, pairs of uolunteers were given a list of approximately 20 houses, identification badges and copies of the 13-question survey. Residents were asked questions such as "why did you chose to live here", "how long have you been livingin this residence and in this area" and "how do you feel about the student-neighbourhood relationships?'

When the leaders drew for positions Hampton ended up on the left of the stage, Eves on the right, McGuinty in the middle. Post-secondary funding is an important issue to students and parents concerned with the cost and value of university. In the debate Hampton had big promises for post-secondary education.

The NDP platform includes the reregulation of all professional and graduate programs and increased funding for universities to at least the national average. "Tuition has become an obstacle for too many families," McGuinty
said as he spoke to parents and : dents who bear the brunt ofincreasing tuition costs. The Liberals plan is to freeze tuition and to give a 50 per cent reduction to the neediest tenth of students. Eves promised to continue the five-yearcap on tuitionincreases in arts and science thatwas madein2000. He also committed to invest $2.6 bihon in capital infrastructure spending to create more spaces and a "half-billion dollar increase to base funding." In addition to education, the leaders talked about other issues of the campaign.After it all,each side claimed victorpinthe debate.Maybe they think they can all win the debate, but only two of them will lose the election.
Deregulation: business students to go bust Continued from page 3
"Deregulated tuition levels will limit the accessibilityof post-secondaryeducation" Dan Herman, president and CEO of the Wilfrid Laurier University Students' Union stated. "The change in tuition will create a two-tiered education system t h a t d see the academic potential of students in financialneed sacrificed."
Fee deregulation for the BBA programcould comeinto effect as soonas the beginning of September 2004-5 for the incoming BBA class. Current students will be exempt from the extra fees under the plan. The increase in tuition fees are to be restricted to $1,500 per year to reduce "theimpact upon student quality and accessibility." Laurier has received government permission to charge deregulated fees.
The internal decision process is still underway and it is not yet certain if deregulated fees will be charged. The choice to deregulatefees would be made for an experimentalperiod of three years, at the end of which the WLU Senatewould reconsider the fee

Daniel Gottesman gets top recognition in the States. that "can correct quantum errors and protect quantum states against accidental disturbances." Quantum computation, which is still in the prime of its birth, targets hgh-speed computing. It is believed that quantum computerswill eventually solve certainmassive computing problems much faster than current-day machines. In the future, research similar to that done by Gottesman could help "revolutionize the design of drugs and new materials such as high temperature superconductors, and would be able to break widely-used encryption schemes." The 33-year-old Gottesman received a BA Summa Cum Laude from Harvard and has aPhD from Caltech. He has also servedin the UC Berkeley CS department as a Long-Term Ch1I Prize Fellowwith the Clay Mathematics Institute and has worked for the Microsoft research division. It was there that he started working on black hole evaporation before becominginterested in quantum computers. His recentwork focuses on aclass of codes called s t a b h e r codes, showing that any stabilizer code could be used to perform fault tolerant quantum computation. "I am more interested in the scientific aspect oflearning how the world works," said Gottesman in an interview with Johanna Weidner. Nonetheless, Gottesman does take time to focus on his hobbies, which include reading science fiction and fantasy, soccer andplayingbridge.

Maxim: to pose or not to pose?
URDAY BUFFET FROM NOON TO 3PM H WATERLOO AT NORTHFIELD Tel: 886-7565
The belo17edBomber:a place for UK7 students to socialize,drink and dance in a relased atmosphere. Imagine my surprise when I entered the Bomber last Wednesday and I was bombarded with girls hoocheduplike theywereon electric circus. My confusion quickly lifted whenitwas brought to my attention that the Bombshelter was a stop on the Coors Light and Maxim Club Tour. The purpose of this tour is to search Canada for a new Maxim model. It consists ofgirls posing for pictures which are then posted on the Internet (coorsclubtour.com) to allow people to vote. Finalists are determined by this voting process and judges choose the ultimate winner. Even moreinteresting is that the judges are randomly selected from each venue the tour visits. Coors Light drinkers fill out ballots throughout the night and at the end p f the evening five are drawn. From the se five, one wins the ( to hold a judging position at the finals. I asked the Coors Light representatives if the judges were re-
stricted to men. Although they strongly disagreed, I was not surprised when the five ballots were drawn and they were all guys. This could be attributed to many things: grls were too busy posingto be interested in the judging contest, girls aren't dumb enough to buy the promoted beer just for a chance to judge, or the companies involved have decided it is more appealing for men to judge women. It is apparent in our socieq that beauty is highly sought after and sex sclls. So, the combination of these two factors in a magazine like Maxim is expected. After all, guys need something to jack off to and Maxim is more coffee table worthy than Playboy since it actually contains articles andless nudity. What irkedme about this eventis its obvious objectification ofwomen. As the girls posed, the guys ogled and non-participating girls frowned on those involved. Itwas quite the fiasco, and after using that term when asking a Coors Lightrepresentative for Imprint photo opportunities he quicklydeclined - I guess he was a little concerned about the slant I might take. Initially,Iwas completelydisgusted, but I decided to give it a shot just for curiosity's sake. Sure, mj7 attire lacked sparkles and cleavage but I figured that I could have some funwith t h s opportunity (for journalism's sake, of course) in my traditional Bomber garb. So, yes, Iposed-Igiggledwith the photographer and my on-loolung friends. But did I feelobjectified?Yes, I did. Even with my nonchalant atti-
tude and my relaxed clothing I felt awkward. I felt that my worthiness would be determined based on my appearanceand, since I was not decked out in heels and the like, I was somehow beneath those that were ludicrous. Some chose to participate in this event and others didn't but all women at the barwere objectifiedregardlessof their decision. Those who were photographed might say that they willingly chose to do so, however their outfits and awkward giggles between and during shots spoke louder than this defence. Athoughitwas a conscious choice, it does not mean that they were not treated as sexual objects- it can just be considered consensual objectification; while those women who declined to pose were subject to the non-consensual type: by not partaking in the promotion, a lack of selfesteem or attractiveness was assumed by spectators. Being confident in who we are as womenis veryirnportant and to flaunt it in mehums such as Maxim is one thing, but keep in mind that as strong women, we must be ourselves and not be victim to advertising images displaying societal conformity at its best. Participaung in the Coors Light Tour would have been much more beneficial and interesting if UW females offered their individuality and uniqueness rather than garnish attempts to fill the "desired" look.

According to Vivienne Cass' theoretical model of Homosexual Identity Formation, as different as each individual queerpersonmay be, theprocess by which they come to terms with their sexuality is often universal in pattern. K7ith so many people between the ages of 17 and 25 currently dealingwith vaning steps of the coming out process, this week I thought it appropriate to share Cass' model. The first stage, known as Identity Confusion, is when the person asks themselves, "Who am I?" As .the person begins to acknowledge that their behaviour (either physiological or emotional) is not typical of a heterosexualperson, they begn to suffer a personal conflict as their identity is called into question. In response to this identity crisis, the person can choose to react in a number ofways. For example, the person may try to ignore their feelings and refrain from further homosexual behaviour. In stage two, Identity Comparison, the person acknowledges to
themselves that they are different or that they ma_ybe queer. Feelingagreat deal of stress andisolation, the person is forced to deal with the fear associatedwith this new revelationin one of a number of ways. One way in which they might react is by devaluing homosexuality as a whole (otherwise known as internalized homophobia) or by telling themselves that they are merely going through a "phase." Of course, it is not uncommon at this stage to accept this acknowledgement and take on the attitude of, "I don't care what anyone else thinks." Identity Tolerance, the third stage in the coming-out process, begins when the person comes to terms with who they are. In t h s stage, the person knows that they are probablyLGBT/ not straight; however a certain degree of alienation still exists, as they know that the person they portray themselves to be in a social setting is not necessarilytheir true self.Atthis point, the person may seek out other queer people, either out of curiosity, a need for support or to learn more. Once the person is able to accept their identity, rather than merely tolerate it, they are ready for step four, Identity Acceptance. In this step the person mapexperience increased contact with other queer people, and perhaps look to join a specialized queer support/socialgroup. Also key in this
stage is integration into straight culture. T o do ths, one of three strategies may be adopted: continuing to "pass" as straight, non-disclosure to straight people, or limited d d o s u r e . Stage five, Identity Pride, begins with the person perceiving the world as a negative place for homosexuals. In response to this perception, the person takes on anew attitude of"I'm here, I'm queer. Get used to it!" Immersing themselves ingay culture, the person will strive to become a more visible homosexual, becoming more vocal about their attitudes as well. In the final stage, ldentity Synthesis, the person becomes far more accepting, tolerant and patient with themselves and the world around them. Accepting themselves forwho they are, they do not feel the need to announce their sexual orientation wherever they might go.Also, they no longer feel completely distrustful of straightpeople, rather they understand now that evenone has a different opinionon the subject ofhomosexuality. Finally, the person no longer associates their identipith their sexuality,but rather admits that their sexuality is merely one part of themselves. To learn more about T4uienne Cass' theoretical model, read the 'Journal of Homosexuality", 1979,44(3),2 79-235 (available at the St.Jerome 'J fibralyl

Social equality. . . or not? I would like to address an issue that has been a cause of agony and frustration for many Canadians and has only beengettingworsein the past couple of years. Agood friend ofmine was rushed to a nearby hospital after having unbearable chest and abdominal pains only to wait for five long hours before adoctorwas available to see her. We were told there was only one doctor -ONE! -on duty. There must have been over 40 patients in the waiting room. What has the Canadian healthcare system come to? Paying taxes to support such a poorly run public system is ridiculous. There is a grave shortage of doctors and beds and, often, for some patients, no available healthcare at all. Cutting funding to and shutting down hospitals in addition to setting low salaries for medical professionalsis the cause ofthis disgrace. Family physicians cannot be seenwhen needed. Often, patients have to wait for weeks before an appointment is made. The nearest appointment my friend could find was in a month's time! Extreme changes have to be made, evenifit means questioning the legitimacy of bureaucrats' commitment to social equality. What is social equalitywhenheart attack patients in some provinces have to wait for an hour before they are given the necessary medical attention?
Ontario vote? In the 1999 provincial election, Ontario saw a 58.3 per cent voter turnout on election night. That means that of all the people who had been enumerated, less than three in five of them voted. That pear wasn't an anomaly. Ontario, with a turnout of only 61 per cent, has the secondworst averagevoter turnout b e h d Alberta. The province has experienced a steady decline in voter turnout since a 1990 level of 64.4 per cent. Six of the provinces, the Yukon and the Northwest Territories can all boast averagevoter turnouts of over 74per cent over thelast decade. Quebec and Prince Edward Island averaged over 80 per cent over the same period. According to Joe Borgat Elections Ontario, there will be approximately 8 million eligible voters in Ontario. If only 61 per cent of them vote, that will leave 3,120,000 ballots un-cast. The lastmajoritygovernmentwas wonwith just over half that many votes. Earlier in the month, it was reported in the Globe andMailthat the leaders' debate would be held a week later than usual to avoid scheduling conflicts with popular reality TV shows such as Canadian Idol and Suruivor.

a b ~ u reality? t We should try voting where it matters. And it's not as though it's hard to educate yourself these days. The television and papers are readily available to get information (on the major parties at least). X briefinvestigation on the Internet and you can easily find out more about smaller parties and independent candidates. Although most of the coverage has gone to the three bigparties, there are nine registered parties taking part in this election- eachwith their own Website. I typed in "Ontario provincial election 2003" and seconds later, Google provided me with 40,900 hits to choose from. Consider voting as your right to engage in the political debate -comment on social issues is harder to take from someone who hasn't bothered to attempt to effect change. Our province-wide apathy may well make us pathetic bystanders in our own lives. By not voting, you hand over control of your education, your tax dollars,your health care- and anything else that you are passionate about - to total strangers who may have vastly different views than you. email@example.com

Changing light bulbs, Waterloo scores with Western ,'
OUR HOUSE The other day I was walking around campus when I decided to k t the Irqb,-intoftice to check my email (if you check your hotmail at least five times aday, please raise your hand.) After tiltering through the spam mail, which consists of porn sites and "free genericviagra" ads, I came across a forward that r e d y made me laugh. I never used to read forwards, but these mass emails really seem to try and grab your attention. Back in the day, they used to just be "make a wish and send this to 57 people of Russian decent in the next 30 seconds and your wish will come true!" emails, or those "tell us every last detail about yourself' questionnaires.
Today, forwards are cartoons and pictures both funny anddsturbing, cooleye tricks like the "Jesus blob,"and funny jokes. The forward I was sent was actually a list of answers for the joke "how many students from (enter university here) does it take to change a light bulb?" Though the answers play on the stereotypeswe hear of and often accept from each university,you can't help but laugh and say, "it's SO true!" Especially the one about UW: How many Waterloo students does it take to change a light bulb?: Five, one to design a nuclear-poweredone that never needs changmg, one to figure out how to power the rest of Waterloo using that nuclear-light bulb, two to install it, and one to write the computer program that controls the wall switch. Admit it, you laughed. You laughed and you said, "that's so true!", even though the joke doesn't relate to over half of the students at the school. Butif Iwere to stereotypeWaterloo, that
(people creating nuclear light bulbs and writing light switch code) would be exactlywhat I would describe. It's funny how even though we go to this school and probably have a broader view and opinion on the school, we can still relate to and believe our own stereotypes. So this week, 1leave you with that more stereotypes from other schools that will make you laugh (and that you might have already read before).. Enjoy!

UW grad goes green Tim Alamenciak IMPRINT STAFF
Luigi D7Agnillo is a University of Waterloo PhD graduate leading the Kitchener faction of the blossoming Green Party in its fight for political recognition. D'AgnilIo's degree is in chemical engineering, which he believes will assistin better understanding the environment and the ways in which we may repair it. I n 1994, D'Agnillo came to Kitchener-Waterloo from Calgary, where he had completed his BA in science.He enrolled at UW to achieve his Masters degreein applied science. Recently he completed his PhD in chemical engineering. He recognizes our regon as richin natural resources, and felt a calling to defend them. During the nine-year course of his stay in ~(itchenerWateloo, he has become involved in environmental concerns, including protesting the proposed freeway throughwetlands and farmlands, and serving on the Region of Waterloo's CyclingAdvisory Committee. During the course of his involve-
ment on these two concerns,D'Agdo realized that activism was simplybegging themanin power for change,and opted to becomk the man in power. "It doesn't take the media long to stop listening. The menin power just wait until the issue dm down," said D'Agnillo. He believes that the best route to change is through politics. D'Agnillo feels that "any amount of education helps [in politics]." He believes that politics requires close examination of the parts in relation to the whole, and the steps resulting in outcomes. D ' A p l l o sees a correlation with chemicaleengineeringin respect to reactant and result equivalencies. He also sees acorrelationbetween somethmg the Green Party calls full cost accounting,whichimpliesthatwe are responsible for theworld that our

During his fight to prevent the freeway from being b d t and endangering wetlands and farmlands, D7Agnillobecame very familiar with localpolitics and political figureheads which he refers to as "small andincestuous."

Local farmers, in the interest of raising profits and increasing local sales, have banded together to create Foodlink, a program that encourages farmers to sell directly from their farms. Foodlink offers information to consumers regarding where they can find fresh, seasonalfood at prices lower than the grocery stores. Providing direct access to products cuts the cost and environmental hazard of shipping the food, in addition to preserving the natural vitamins of many of the foods. Consumers can visit and see the source of their food, much of which is organically grown. This program is a good opportunity for students, who often do not have the money for produce or meat, or healthy food in general. Peter Katona, co-ordinator of the program, advises that you call ahead, just to give the farmer a bit of warning, as not all the farms have a store or a roadside stall. One drawback to the program is the lackof publictransitto most of the farms, but public transit is available to the weekly farmers' markets in St. Jacobs, Waterloo and Kitchener, where many local farmers sell their produce.

Ian Blechschmidt, Imprint Staff

Other reviewers have called Marshall, AUchigan'sSmall Brown Bike "posthardcore" - I don't know exactly what that means. I do know, however, that when I hear the opening bass riff for "Deconstruct/Rebuild," the first song off of their third full-length album The River Bed, it makes me want to jump around a whole lot. And that must be a good thing. Another excellent album put out by Smallman Records (Moneen, Choke), The River Bed rocks in the tradition ofThe Getup Ktds andThe Weakerthans. It trades aggression for introspection, but does so without being slow or ponderous. It's a great mix of heavy melodies played with soft distortion resulting in big, anthemic songs that are singablewithout being too poppy. The RiverBedhas avery unproduced sound, which gives it a great sense of honesty. The guitarists W k e Reed and Travis Dopp) are always a little fuzzy and avoid clearly defined riffs, making them murky and mysterious -like trying to see the bottom of a river full of stirred-up din. Jeff Gensterblum's drumming is key to SmallBrown Bike's sometimes frantic pace while Ben Reed does a great job ofgroundingthe recordwith his hard-driving bass lines.

Don't let that scare you into thinking that you'll come out of listening to it in some kind of furied, frenzied state. O n the contrary, the blend ofmusical ideas on this record is done so beautifully that you could be in an empty room staring at a blank wall and still end up relaxed, content and moving your feet.
Simian We are your friends
A Perfect Circle Thirteenth Step
Simian really are your friends;the kind of friends that invite you over to a party at Beck's house, with Weezer serving appetizers. O r at least that's how I see it. I'll bet Spookey Ruben would also be invited. Simian's second CD willmake your whole body move in subtle ways. Right from the first track, "La Breeze," you'll begin tapping your feet. But by the time you reach "Never be Alone" you'llnotice your butt cheeks contractingrhythmically with the psychedelic beat. In fact, my happy cheeks are bouncing right now. Simian puts together a unique, entertaining and beautiful album. The four British boys makingup thegroup, describe Weareyotlrfiendras "a frenetic record stuffed with dozens of urban musicalinfluences,informedby travel between cities and all their favourite things and the urge to see all the power of those places harnessed for good,
Side projects are weird. They always sound different enough from the originalgroup to justify existing as a separate entity,but if David Usher releases a "SO~O" album and gets all his friends from Moist to play on it, is it any different than releasing another Moist album? APerfect Circle, the undertakingof Tool's Maynard James Keenan, is another example. Though it's a great album, Mer de Noms (their debut, released in 2000) seems alittle likeToolmade-easier to listen to. The band's second album, Thirteenth Step, takes this ball and runs with it -only in a different direction. I've got to stress, first of d , that I really liked Thirteenth St@.

UW all over new Children's Museum Neal Moogk-Soulis IMPRINTSTAFF
When the Waterloo Regional Children's Museum opens Saturday, September 27th, it will be a testament to a coming together of community forces. Through faculty, students and alumni, the University of Waterloo has been an integral player in the design of the museum and its exhibits. The museum took possession of the old Goudies department store budding in Kitchener three years ago. Having been abandoned for approximately 15 years the construction and renovations teams had their work cut out for them. A recent tour given by Michele Baumgarten, the museum's director of marketing, showcased the museum.The museum has 50,000 square feet of space and is spread across five floors and a basement. X large atrium running from the ground floor to the fourth left the museum with 60 per cent of the original floorspace. Museum space includes exhbit space; a street-levelgift shop; basement classrooms; a workshop to maintain old exhibits and create new ones; andgal1ei-yspace for the artist-in-residence. The tirst exhbit that visitors will see is the Geo-Terrace exhibit wh c h occupies a large portion ofthe ground floor of the museum. The exhibitwas designedwith the assistance ofPhilip Beasley and Thomas Seebohm from the School of Architecture and Stan Lipshitz from the math and physics departments.The Geo-Terracee-&bit invites children to create designs and patterns using fold-up shapes, magnetic rods and tactile tiles. Also on the ground floor is the TotSpot exhibit which will expose chddren from six months to three years to experiments with touch, sight and sound. The exhibit was designed with a ceiling that glows, colourful
interactive wall tiles and a 'water-bed' floor that will allow children to leave impressions on the surface. It was designedin consultation withDaniela O'Neill, director ofthe UW Centre for Child Studies.The centre is aresearch lab for early language and cognitive development with children from 18 months to six years old. Kathryn Saunders, a 1986 UW School of Architecture graduate and adjunct professor at theuniversityof Waterloo is the museum's exhibit designer. She began working on the museum two years ago just as the building went out to tender. Her visionwas to create a museum that went beyond the 'so-what' experience of other museums where patrons have limited interaction with the exhibits. The exhibits were created to inspire creative learning. For example, the Electrical Wall was designed to teach children fundamentalelectricityprinciples. Childrendesign circuits and then manoeuvre a current through the circuit and can observe its behaviour. Saunders, previously the creative director of the Royal Ontario Museum, was initiallygiven a budget of $1 million dollars to create the exhibits. After drawingup alist of local technology companies and their areas of expertise, Saunders approached them to pursue partnerships to develop exhibits. Envisioning "a creature to inhabit the atrium," Saunders approached ATS to create the Metamorph, a robot suspended on cables in the atrium space. Children can interactwith the robot from six different workstations, the interfaces having been designed with the help of ConestogaCollege.Usingpartnerships like this, the exhibits in the museum today are worth between four and five million dollars. Duringthe pastthree years ofpreparation, the museum has made use of co-op students from both the Univer-

West Nile hype has gone too far Katherine St.James IMPRINT STAFF
The West Nile Vims. We've heard about the deaths. And the one in 200 chance of contractingitifyou are in an affected area. But the terrifying part is that less than one per cent of those who contract the virus have any serious side effects and 80 per cent never show symptoms. The basics of the West Nile Vims are these: it's a flaviviridaevirus -one that is transmitted by insects - and can only be transmitted by insects. That means that humans can only transmit it to eachother through blood transfusions. The virus is a seasonal epidemic that begins in summer and usually dies out in the fall. Logical, when you consider it occurs during mosquito season. The 2002 season saw the biggest spread of thevims: 44 U S . states and five Canalan provinces had 4,500 human cases,with 258 resulting in death. Remember that most times the virus goes unnoticed and never diagnosed. The symptoms are fever, head and body aches, skin rashes and swollen glands. The virus becomes serious whenitinfects the brain or membrane surrounding the brain. Those at risk
of serious illness are the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. If a mosquito bite swells to agreat extent or becomes infected,itis advised that you seek medical attention. Prevention of thevirus involves wearing light-coloured clothing and mosquito repellant with D E E T and stayinginside at dusk to prevent bites. Draining standing water in birdbaths and other small sources can stop breeding mosquitoes. But the human-borne madness that has snowballed over the frightening aspect of contracting the flu-like virus has, once again, gone too far. Did you know that during most flu seasons, aside frominfluenza outbreaks, up to 6,000 Canadians die each year? Yet the West Nile Vims has become an important public concern. The government has responded with force. Ontario alone has allocated over $100 million to the control of West Nile, from surveillanceactivities on birds, horses, mosquitoes and humans to public education, information brochures, testing on dead birds to track the virus' spread and applying larvicides and adultici4es t g e s ofpesticides geared at eliminating different age groups -on mosquito breeding grounds and habitat.
With all the resources allocated to the control and prevention of the virus, have any negative effects of this control been takeninto account? Applyinglanicides in many areas of standing water to kill larvae might cause more harm than good. Have the effects on our groundwater and drinking water systems been considered? Onlya fewofthe pesticides used against mosquito populations have actually been tested for effects on humans. They also kill pollinatinginsects such as bees and butterflies. The effectiveness of adulticides is considered neglible when other mosquitoes fly into the sprayed area soon after treatment. But the biggestconcern should be that using this pesticide will only succeed in forcing mosquito populations to become hardier carriersof thevirus. Letting the epidemic run its course would actually help us become more resistant. This may not be thegovernment's fault if they are only acting in the public's interest, but the illusion that the government has control over this virus and its effects is about as true as the idea that we can control nature.
The trtuh behnid taht scrmbaled e-mial Michelle Rorke
You've probably already seen the clip on the right in a forwarded e-mail that claims scientists at an "Elingsh" usversityhavefound thatpeople canread scrambled words if the frst and last letters are in place. A check on the net shows that no one has done h s son of study recently, so the e-mail itself is probably mostly invented. Backin 1976,Graham Rawlinson,a PhD student at Nottingham University, did a very similar experiment. He randomized letters in the middle of
words and found that some readers only detected four or five errors in a whole page of muddled text. The academic community was more interested in examining how people recognize the shape of words and their orderwithina sentence.So his researchwentlargelyunnoticed. In 1999, Rawlinson wrote a letter explaininghis under-appreciatedthesis work that was published in New Scientist magazine under the headline "Reibadailty." Tlus is letter was probably the inspiration for the email.

Monkey see, monkey want Biopsychologists at Emory University have performed a study concluding that monkeys share a very human-like trait with us -a sense of fairness and equity. Female capuchin monkeys refused a treat offered for goodworkif other monkeys received better treats. The researchers carried out experiments where the monkeys were rewarded if they handed back a token that the researcherhanded to them. As a reward, they elther received tasty grapes or dull cucumbers.Their findingis thatthe femalemonkeys rejected the cucumbersif another monkey who performed similarly received a grape instead.The males seemednot to care. This action in females proves that these primates have a sense of fairness similar to our own. Monkeys who received yummy grapes for work well done threw the treat away if another monkey, who wasn't as deserving also received the top treat. Previous studies involving humans have concluded that humans will reject pay if they believe they are being treated unfairly. Wet weekends not Mother Nature's fault

No more worms! More than 60 universities and companies have begun ~voriiingtogether on agloballnternet laboratory called PlanetLab. This laboratory, designed to simulate thousands ofcomputer users, will be used to test new methods of combating Internet worms.
Testingfor lnternetworms or distributed computer programs is normally done on existing machines of the same network or using simulation software. Computer researcher Laurent Mathy from Lancaster University points out that "simulations only give you an approximation of reality.If I only simulate an algorithm, I'm not going to have real background traffic." PlanetLab solves this problem by creatinganetwork on top of the existing Internet. This network consists of 170Internet-linked machines from around the world. In fact, any researcherwishing to access PlanetLab can do so by contributing a machine from their network.

Rival Hawks run rampant over Warriors Charbel G. Balloutine SPECIAL TO IMPRINT
In what is generally regarded as the most emotional and intense game of the football season, the Warriors showed neither emotion nor intensity in the Battle of Waterloo versus the Laurier Golden Hawks. The Hawks avenged last season's loss to Waterloo, cruising to a 50-14 victory over the Warriors and improving their record to a perfect 4-0. O n a sunny Saturday afternoon at UniversityStadium,the Warriors came out flat and the anticipated battle soon became a blowout. Trailing 3-0 early in the contest, Waterloo almost recovered the ball at the Laurier eight-yard line after the Hawks' defensive back Ian Logan bobbled Waterloo kicker Matt Armstrong's punt. However, the Hawks were able to maintain control of the ball. O n thevery next play from scrimmage,LaurierrunningbackDerek Medler scampered 86 yards along the left sidelines to set up the first of many touchdowns for the Hawks. Laurier scored two more touchdowns on consecutire possessions before the end of the first quarter to increase their lead to 2 1-0. They continued their hot streakby opening the second quarterwith a long drive down the field that culminated in a touchdown run by Medler. Shortly thereafter, the Hawks put five more points on the board to build an insurmountablelead of 36-0 only 22 minutes into the game. Following this the Warriors turned the ball over to the Hawks when U \ i receixrJeffNosa1 allowed his defensive back to step in front of him and intercept Warriors' quarterback John Morbey's pass. But a Laurier fumble on the very next playwas recovered by UW free safety John Sullivan. Nosal then redeemed himself for his earlier miscuewith a41-yard catch and run as he sprung loose from his defender along the left sidelines. That play set up a 35 yard fieldgoal attempt for CX"s Matt Armstrong, which he sailed wide left. The Golden Hawks, however, conceded a single point to make the score 36-1, drawing a sarcastic cheer from the \X'aterloo faithful. Laurier scored another touchdown before the end of the first half to lead 43-1. The Warriors did close the half with a couple of receptions, including a spectacular one-handed catch by receiver Matt Reid, but went into the dressing room trailing by six converted touchdowns. With the game out of reach for UW, Laurier entered their substitutes into the game for the second half of play. WLU running backDerek Medler tallied 155yards on seven carries with a touchdown, and Hawks' quarterback Ryan Pyear completed eight of ten passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns, both in the first half alone.
UW defensive end Trevor Derreck runs through the gauntlet of his Warrior teammates before last Saturday's game against Laurier. The third quarter saw only singles and field goals added to the scores of both teams. Armstrong booted a career best 53-yard field goal just 2:37 into the half. He now trails only the record-holder, Western's Kevin Rydeard, who kicked a 55-yard field goal on September 11,1982 against York. Unfortunately, Armstrongwas helped off the field late in the game
after he suffered a shoulder injury while tackling a Hawks' punt returner. At the end of three quarters of play, Laurier led 47-8 over the Warriors and added another field goal minutes into the fourth quarter to take a 50-8 advantage. But true to the Warriors' pride, they did not give up. Filling in for UW's injured duo of Jay Akindolire and Greg McCurdy
was running backTravis Gellatly. He played marvellously raclung up 102 yards on eight rushes, including the final score of the game-a 68-yard run for a touchdown with 4:38 left toplay. The failed two-point convert capped the 50-14 drubbing by the Golden Hawks over UW. Laurier produced 575 yards oftotaloffence compared to Waterloo's 327 yards.
Midway through the season, the " Warriors boast the nation's leadmg tackler, John Sullivan who increased his total to 36 in this game. UW Receiver Ian Fordealso had 5 catches for 44 yards on the afternoon. The Warriors (1-3) will try to im- '-prove their record as they visit the Windsor Lancers (2-2) on Saturday, .September 27 at 2 p.m.

The UK'women's soccer club continued their strong early-season plajlast weekend, fighting their way to a 0-0 draw with the Laurier Golden Hawks on Sunday, September 21. While the match ended without either team finding the goal, Warriors head coach Peter Mackie said he was proud of his team's effort against their cross-town rivals. "We played on a lot of emotion," said Mackie. "It was a huge tie for us." Playing at University Stadium put the Warriors at an immediate disadvantage because this was their first game on artificial turf. While an obvious adjustment had to be made by the Warriors because of the new playing surface, Maclue said his team settled down after some early jitters. "For the first 15 minutes, we were nervous," Mackie said of his club. "[But] in the second half, we were the better team." The Warriors were noticeably apprehensive as the game began, and Laurier was able to get a few good chances early on. However, the collective defensive efforts of the Warriorsyere able to ward off the Hawks asqhe Warriors slowly took control of the match. UW strikers Eline Kamphuis and Tory Westbrook were buzzing the Laurier goal throughout the entire first half, but the Hawks also produced a solid defensive effort by keeping the game scoreless through 45 minutes. However, it was in the second half that the Warriors began to take control of the match. Waterloo began winning possession of countless loose balls and prolonged pressure was applied to the Laurier defense. When the Hawks did get oppor-

The game ended in a scoreless tie. tunities to move the ballupfield, the stellar play of Waterloo's back four was able to quell any Golden Hawk rushes. "They're doing really well," said Mackie of his quartet of defcAers. "We try to build out from the back. They're quicker than last year." Waterloo continued to turn the screws on the Laurier defense, but to the Hawks' credit, they never relented. As the game wound down, the Warriors stormed the Laurier zone and nearly tucked in the game's only marker, only to be thwarted by Hawks' keeper Alison Goodman. With the Hawks clingmg to the scoreless tie, the final whistle blew and UWwas forced to settle for the draw. Even though Mackie praised his team's defensive efforts throughout the season (the Warriors have shut out their opposition in two of
three games this year), Mackie does see room for improvement on the offensive side of the ball. "We need more service from the flanks," hlackie said. "We're not as confident around the goal [as we could be]. Wewillget there; again it's just [a matter of] confidence." The U'arriors will next see action this weekend as they travel to the provincial capital for a pair of games. Waterloo will take on the University ofToronto on Saturday, September 27 andYork on Sunday, September 28. According to Mackie, these two match-ups are integral to the Warriors' overall success in 2003. "If we can get points [in both games] this weekend, it will kind of solidify us as a top-three team in the division," said Mackie.

T i m e was, you could dream of continuing your education at the Ontario university of your choice, and those dreams stood a fair chance of coming true.
Brian Santos But that was before the Ontario government cut over $1 billion from our universities. Less funding means higher tuition, fewer professors, overcrowded classrooms, inadequate resources and, potentially, a lower quality of education. The Ontario government's spending per person on universities remains the lowest in all of Canada, and is lower than nearly every American state. The cost to attend university in Ontario is becoming so high that average families may find a university education is not an affordable option for their children. This is your university. It's important that you vote for the candidate who will bring about the necessary changes to assist our universities. We need a change from past government policy that has not adequately funded our universities. Help to ensure that dreams become realities for Ontario's students.

Major junior hockey is majorly underrated
There are certain things in sport that will never change. Mike Tyson will always be incoherent, NBA players will always get arrested and Canada \dlalways have major junior hockey. And while most fans of the frozen ballet are still countingdown theweeks until the beginning of the N H L season, last weekend's opening of the major junior season made me more
giddy than Pete Rosein Atlantic City. It was last Friday, September 19 when me and 6,066 of my closest friends took in the home opener of the Ontario Hockey League's IGtchener Rangers, last year's Memorial Cup champions (indicativeof nationwide junior hockey supremacy).I sawit aU that night-achampionship banner-raising ceremony, a plethora of goals (the Rangers won 10-4) and more action than Wilt Chamberlain's hotel room. This, my fellow puck heads, was thewaj-hockeywas meant to be played. This was also the way that hockey was meant to be watched. Intimate arenas like the IGtchener Memorial Auditorium are all over the major junior ranks. and these small rinks
tend to make the ticket prices lower.A lotlower.A seat for a Rangers game in the back row is $13.50. A seat in row 'IS (about half-way between ice level and the back row) is $13.50.And a seat in the "watch-for-flying-teeth" row 'A' is, you guessed it, $13.50. Conversely, Toronto Maple Leafs tickets can be as expensive as $400.Even the cheapest ticket foraLeafs gameis still a stiff $25. And you better hope that your admission includes some form ofx-ray vision- the ticket describes your view of the ice as "obstructed." Another thing that makes the major junior game affordable for even the most penny-pinching hockey enthusiast is the player's salaries (or lack thereof). While the typicalNHLeroften encounters the problem of what
to do with his money, the standard major junior player faces the quandary of what to do with no money. Junior players receive equipment, cost of living and not much else, so big ticket prices aren't needed to cover astronomical salaries. Plus, there's somethngrefreshingabout a hockey player that still drives his Ford Tempo to lus games. And maybe it's because of the more-than-modest salaries that the on-ice product ofjunior hockey is so damn good. The pros have guaranteed salaries no matter how bad they play, so there's bound to be some offnights. A major junior player has no guarantees, except that if he performs poorly in front of the wrong NHL scout, his career aspirations will be
crushed. The only thing I haven't mentioned yet is the talent of the up-andcoming hockey legends. The pace of the major junior game can (and most likely will) blow you away and unlike many pro games,you will see plenty of scoring. After all, scouts are rarely impressed by howwell a youngster plays the neutral-zone trap. The future looks bright for major junior hockey, as the visceral, entertaining brand of Canada's national game shows no signs of relenting. Cities like IGtchener will always have major junior hockey, and teams like the Rangers w d always be a joy to watch. Not a bad deal for $13.50. firstname.lastname@example.org
Warrior men split weekend doubleheaders With just four games remaining, Waterloo is tied for third in OUA Rod McLachlan IMPRINT STAFF
For the Waterloo men's baseball team, the story of the weekend was win big and lose big. Earning a split of the two doubleheaders on the weekend was satisfactory but not what UW head coach Brian Bishop had hoped for heading into the pivotal four-game weekend. Prior to the four games, coach Bishop expressed his desire to at least register a split in the two games last Saturday against the Western squad which he said is close in skill level to Waterloo. His wish came to be as his Warriors lost their first game 10-6 and rallied with authority to secure the second match with a convincing 15-0 score. Fifth-year veteran pitcher Tyler Wilson took the mound.for UW in last Saturday's firstgame,. However, all Wilson's experience still could not help him squash an explosive Western offence. A struggling Wilson was forced to watch nine Mustang players cross the plate in front.of him during- the course of just four innings. Finally the sluggish Warriors
came to life in the fifth, but six runs was all the offence the hometown Warriors could generate. Jeff Murdoch did his part by contributing a homerun along with two RBI's. Waterloo's Scott Schmidt was the other bright spot wlth three hits in game one including a homerun and two RBI's. With Waterloo's bats o n a roll already from the end of game one, UW's offence racked up an impressive 15 runs in game two, which started at 7:00 p.m. last Saturday night. First-year pitcher J o h n McNabb was superb in his second victory of 2003 as he completely silenced the Mustangs' bats in the first five innings with five strikeouts and two walks. The Warriors were led offensively in game two by catcher Graham Holloway who registered four hits and two RBI's. However, the Waterloo bench could not have been happier to see Jai-Paul Jatana crush a grand slam that broke the backs of the Mustangs. The Warriors revenged their earlier Saturday loss with a 15-0 win. The next day, last Sunday, prior to Waterloo's doubleheader versus the last placed York Lions coach
Bishop expected to capture both games, although he did suggest that he believed-that York was a much better team than their 1-7-0 (winloss-tie) record suggested. Bishop turned out to be painfully correct as his club split Sunday's games losing 5-4 in a squeaker but thrashed York in the second game 8-0. Third-year ace pitcher AdamBeck t m k the mound in game one for UW. His club scored three quick runs in support during course the game's opening inning. However, York slowly chipped away at the Warriors lead due to some shoddy defensive errors. They say that leads are like ex-girlfriends: you can never get them back. True to this adage the Warriors after failing to recover from this misplays suffered a heartbreaking 5-4 loss. Ingame two Waterloo once again jumped out to an early lead. Showing impressive poise rookie hurler Scott Vandyckprotected the Warriors' 1-0 lead during his five-inning performance, which earned him his first victory for the Warriors. During his time of the mound he surrendered only three hits while striking out six. In the sixth inning the of-
fensive floodgates burst for Waterloo as they tallied five additional runs. With the bases loaded Chris Dietrich's clutch hit drove in two runs and was an integral part to the Warriors' sixth inning barrage of runs. Reliever Alex Beauvais was brought in to secure the victory. With his steady pitches he completed the shutout that Vandyck had started. The Warriors' playoff aspirations will be tested tomorrow versus the GuelphGryphons inadoubleheader as Waterloo travels to Hastings Stadium for a 3:00 p.m. start. Monday will see the Warriors return home to the confines of Jack Couch Park in Kitchener to take on the first-place Brock Badgers.

The familiar, yet distinctive numberon thebackofhs jerseyis just one of the many things that make hlo$~yaninterestingstudy. Mogdny, nicknamed "hfagic" earlyin his career, is one-of-a-kind specimenwho can generate moments of offensive inspiration on the ice. Mogilny is best known as a clinical sniper even though he's also a terrific playmaker. Understandably,his reputation as a lethal goal-scorer was forever attached to him after scoring 83 goals in 84 games during the 19921993 regular and playoff season.

pioneers of the fancy "puck off the skate and through the legs" trick that is used to beat defencemen wide on the wing. The trick goes something like this: draw the puck on the forehand side behind the body, then rotate the tip of the stickblade vertically to point downwards with a turn of the wrist in order to tap the puckup to the far-side skate and then kick the puck backup to the forehandin front ofthe body. Xlogilny also has a trademarkmove that he uses to get his shot off when facing a defenceman head on. While cuttingin towards the centreof theice, Moglny would fake h s wrist shot, then draw the puck back to reload and then finally fire his wrist shot in his normal balanced body position. With this move, he gets a little space away from the defenceman while moving towards a better shootingangle. This simple-looking move is deceptively Qfficult to pull off, because it requires smooth shifting of bodyweight to the frontleg then to the backleg and back
again to the front leg. His marvelous skills were on full display while playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs against Farjestad of the Swedish Elite League in a pre-season exhibition game. Facing a common situation with one defenceman between himself and the goalie, Mo&y cut towards the centre from the right wing and triedhis favourite "fake and reload" signature wrist shot move. He performed the triple-weight transfer movement gracefully and the move resulted in an assist on Alexei Ponikarovsky's goal. Mogilny also showcased his famed goal-scoring talent by sneaking behind Farjestad's defence to take a breakaway pass and then calmlybeating the goalie with awrist shot off one leg, Markhlessier style. Moglny added a second goal when he jumped into the slot to take Robert Reichel's pass and again used his wrist shot to beat the goalie stick-side.

'The Warriors men's soccer club took a massive leap towards recapturing their 2001 O U X championship glory last weekend, as U W emerged dominant in a 4-0 road victory over division rival Laurier at University stadium last Sunday, September 21. The Warriors were highly focused for the match-up with the Golden Hawks, and the emotionally-charged UW squad was able to capture momentum immediately as they were in control of thegame from the opening whistle. "I was ecstatic afterwards," exclaimed head coach Peter Mackie. "This game was as good of a performance [by UW] that I've seenin three years." Waterloo held an early advantage in the ball controlgame and the Golden Hawks were forced backon their heels early and often. Throughout the first half, a Warriors goal lookedinevitable, even though they appeared to be snakebitten around the goal. Finally,in the closing moments of the first half, Warriors striker David MiUswon arace for aloose ballin front of the Laurier goal and slid home the game's first marker. However, the 1-0 lead camewith a cost for UM, as Mills went down with an ankleinjury on the scoringplay. Despite theloss ofhlills, the first goal gave the Warriors the advantage ofplayingfrom ahead. "The first goal was big," said hfackie. Mills' injury forced first-year forward Payman Charkhzarin into the match and the rookie delivered.

Blessings rain down and banners rise up for Rangers Benoit returns from Leafs' camp to score eight points in IQtchener's Memorial Cup banner-raising night Rod McLachlan IMPRINT STAFF
T w o events unfolded in the Kitchener Rangers' Ontario Hockey League season opening 10-4 victory versus the hated Plymouth Whalers. The first event was a banner-raising of the four Memorial Cup championship banners to the rafters. The second event involved a Kitchener defender raining eight points down on the game and thus living up to his last name, Benoit, which means "blessed". It seems that only for this year's defending champion Rangers could both the ups and the downs of OHLlife possibly translate into positive s. Before last Friday's game had even started, the banner-raising already had the capacity crowd of 6,067 whipped up into a frenzy. It appeared, however, that the fans still had their doubts as to whether this year's Rangers squad, which has suffered an exodus of its key starters to pro hockey, hadwhatit took to be in the upper echelon of Junior 'A' hockey. Nevertheless, they forgot about Andre Benoit, who was about to put on an electric performance. Just one day earlier he had beenworking out at the Toronto Maple Leafs training camp. Showingplentyofenergy, Benoit struck with his first tally of the night just 24 seconds into the action. This lightning goal made it known to all the Kitchener fans that not onlywere the Rangers back in business, but that he was back. During the remainder of the game, Benoit went on to score three more goals and added four assists fora totalof eight points. Offensively, this was the best game ever played by a Ranger defenceman, and tied the OHL record for most points in a game by a defender that was set 14 years ago. All night long it seemed as if Benoit was from another planet. Every time he touched the puck it seemed to dri-e into the net. The Rangers' fourth-yeardefenceman certainly showed off his vast array of weapons as he scored using onetimers, wrist shots and even while being knocked down on his way to the net. Add to this, I(itchener7sEvan McGrath's goal and two assists along with defencemanMatt Lashoff s four assists and you have a thrashing of a bitter rival. A total of 15 points were attributed to Benoit, McGrath and Lashoff by the end of the night. The rout over the Plymouth squad must have been just as thrilling from the bench for head coach and general manager Peter DeBoer, coach of the Whalers back in 20002001. Watchinghis successor pull his startinggoalie just 3:30into the game only to pull the backup out at the start of the second with the Rangers up 4-2 must have at least brought a smirk to DeBoer's face. The Rangers will be reinforced up frontwithMike Richards and Petr Kanko returning from pro camps. However, if anything is wrong with

Lashoff, a rookie defenceman for the Rangers, earned the second star with his four assists during the game. The crowd showed their appreciation during a banner-raising ceremony prior to the start of the game. The banners were raised to commemorate the last season's Memorial Cup victory by the Rangers. the Rangers this year, it is their defence. This year, the Rangers will not see the return of defenders Matt Manias, Thomas Harrison, Steve Eminger, George Halkidis and T.J. Eason, who all helped the Rangers achieve greatness last season. Only four defenceman are returning from last year's team including Benoit and
Marcus Smith.Benoitwillbe expected to shoulder a large portion of the leadership and ice time on the blue line. The Rangers suspect defence is responsible for allowing four goals in four of their sixpre-seasongames. The problemwas notrectified for the season opener either, as startinggoalie
Carlo DiRienzo surrendered another four goals. The problem however, does not appear to bewith DiRienzo. The young Ranger defence seems to have trouble knocking their opposition off of the puck in the slot area. This will need to be addressed quickly if the Rangers are going to go far in the playoffs again this year.
Kitchener faced off last night against Windsor, although the results of the game were not available at press time. Tonight they return home to take on the Soo Greyhounds, who they swept in the first round of last year's playoffs.
