Lancers Football Clinch Playoffs After going down 1-0 early in the game, the Lancers would finish the first quarter up 14-1, thanks to a 48 yard interception return by Tarik Bonas which set up the first touchdown and a 27 yard touchdown run by Tarrence Crawford. Crawford finished the game with 142 rushing yards from six carries.

During the game, defensive lineman Tai Pham, became Windsor’s all-time leader in career sacks with 17.5. Running back Beau Lumley stood out as the team’s best offensive performer, picking up 99 receiving yards on six catches and 91 rushing yards from nine carries, as well as one rushing touchdown.

A 53-yard pass to Evan Pszczonak ended the quarter and set up a 14 yard field goal to start the second quarter, putting the Lancers up 17-1.

The Lancers will finish the season with two away games, as they travel to Ottawa to take on the Carleton Ravens Oct. 18 and then head to London Oct. 25 to face the Western Mustangs.

Although the half would end 24-15 and with the Gee Gees on a 14-0 run, Lancers head coach Joe D’Amore said he was never concerned. “We were up at half time and we came out in the third quarter and we got a score first which was big,” said D’Amore.

McMaster.

The Lancers would enter the fourth quarter on a 12-0 run which saw them up 36-15. Despite a late rally by Ottawa, which saw them score a touchdown on the last play of the game, D’Amore said the Lancers were always in control of the outcome.

Although the final score looked somewhat close, the Lancers dominated play and were never in danger of coming away with anything less than a win.

“All in all, we did a lot of sound things and that’s what good football teams do and I was really happy that we cleaned up the mistakes we made [in the game with Guelph],” said D’Amore.

[Photo by // Richard Riosa] RICHARDRIOSA Sports Editor __________________________ The Lancer football team has clinched a spot in the OUA playoffs with a 39-29 win over the Ottawa Gee Gees.

A packed crowd at Alumni Field Oct. 10 got the chance to see the Lancers clinch a playoff berth and move their record to 5-1. They remain tied with Guelph and Western – whom they play in London in the final game of the season – behind first place, 6-0

D’Amore said he is hoping to win the two remaining games and is confident his team can secure second place in the OUA. After failing to throw a passing touchdown against Guelph and only recording one against Ottawa, fifth-year quarterback Austin Kennedy has only two games left to break the OUA record for career passing touchdowns. “It’s something I really want for him, but at the same time, you’re not going to change your game-plan just to do it for him,” said D’Amore. “It’s possible. He’s had four or five touchdown games before. He only needs five to break it, four to tie it and two games left to do it.”

Undead Buffet at Zombie Chase

KAR-LEIGHKELSO Arts Editor __________________________

An all-ages horde of zombie “fast food” made their way down the riverfront trail at the second annual Zombie Chase. The 5k “run/walk/drag” began at 6:55 p.m. Oct. 11 at Askin Avenue’s end and looped back from downtown. Participants were encouraged to dress up, as some “best dressed” awards were up for grabs, but at their own risk  –  three minutes after the race begins, the zombies are released to chase down their victims. Jen Mimnagh and her husband Dave were first time participants in the race and finished around the 36-minute mark.   They recently moved to Windsor from London, having somewhat neglected their running routines since their summer marriage.

Four-legged Therapists Help Stressed Students

Certified therapy dogs were brought to the University of Windsor to help relieve students’ stress Oct. 8. [Photo by // Travis Fauteux]

Before midterms begin, students have had the chance to visit a few furry friends.

“Last year we had about 180 people and this year we got 205 students through,” said St. Denis. “The event itself was shorter, but we had more dogs this year and faster logistics so we were able to get more people through the room at a time.”

The Odette Marketing Association (OMA) worked with the Therapeutic Paws and Canada to bring the dogs  to the University campus as a way to relieve student stress Oct. 8.  Joshua St. Denis from the OMA said turnout for the event was better than last year.

The association normally hosts events which are designed to help students with marketing, but it also organizes stress-buster events like the Paws Room. Erica McKenzie, the Windsor team leader for Therepeutic Paws of Canada said she always received positive feedback from events like these.

TRAVISFAUTEUX News Editor __________________________

“As always, it was fantastic,” said McKenzie. “We usually average around 200 students . . . so it’s no surprise that it was a very successful event with very happy students.” St. Denis said the dogs made a lot of students smile during a very stressful time in their lives. “These dogs are trained to make people happy,” said St. Denis. “Even just petting a dog is said to have positive health effects, so this is great to bring to the University.”

Organizers said students were leaving the Paws Room Oct. 8 with smiles on their faces. The goal of the event was to reduce students’ stress before midterms hit. [Photo by // Travis Fauteux] Studies show that human-animal interactions may have psychological and physiological effects. According to a 2013 study by Dr. Monica Gonzalez-Ramirez, which was published in the journal Alternative and Complementary Therapies, “the simple presence of a dog was beneficial for reducing stress levels in stressed adults.”

Lancer Women’s Soccer Team Take 7 of 9 Points this Week

loo in the 14th minute. Head coach Steve Hart said the long-ranged effort helped the team to settle down and put in a solid defensive performance. “We had pressure and they had pressure,” said Hart. “It was backward and forward – A very evenly fought game.” The Lancers held on for the deserved 1-0 win and Hart said he was aiming for six points from the weekend’s two games. The squad was halfway to that target after defeating Brock 5-1, led by a Jaclyn Faraci hat-trick. Hart said he was impressed with the women’s performance and felt the score line was completely justified. “They dominated the whole time,” said Hart. “The girls played very well.”

Lancer Men’s Soccer Team Stuttering Down Home Stretch Bringing their two-game winning streak back home for the weekend, Hart said he was confident his team could earn four to six points from their games against Brock Oct. 12 and McMaster the following afternoon. Unfortunately for the Lancers, their own inconsistency and a couple key refereeing decisions would ruin their last two home games and put a damper on Thanksgiving weekend. After conceding the first goal against Brock, midfielder Chris Lanni tied the game and Jumbo scored his fourth goal in three games to put the Lancers in the lead.

[Photo by // Richard Riosa] RICHARDRIOSA Sports Editor __________________________ The Lancer men’s soccer team have finished the week 1-1-1 after a strong start away to Waterloo.

After getting back on track last weekend with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Laurier, the Lancers steamrolled the Warriors 4-0 Oct. 8, with both Michael Pio and Lyowuna Jumbo picking up a brace. With the team

remaining in constant control of the game, head coach Steve Hart used the second half as an opportunity to give some of his younger players match experience.

Brock pushed hard for the win late in the game and managed to find an equalizer as the ball was headed into the net off of a corner delivered by the Badgers goalkeeper. The bizarre ending to the game came one full minute after the three minutes of added time initially called for by the referee. Hart said he was extremely disappointed with his squad for letting the lead slip. “The moment you lose concentration, the moment you play stupid,

you’re not going to win,” said Hart. “That’s exactly what happened. We didn’t deserve it today.” Lanni said it was heartbreaking for the team to concede on the last touch of the game. He said it especially hurt him, having grown up in the Niagra region, where Brock is located. While Lanni said “obviously it hurts”, he hoped the team would be able to bounce back the following afternoon against McMaster However due to injuries and suspensions, Windsor started a fairly experimental line-up which never got a chance to get going in the game. Jumbo picked up a red card midway through the second half, causing Windsor to have to play the remaining 20 minutes one man down. They held on until the 82nd minute when the Marauders finally took the lead. They went on to score another in the 90th, winning the game 2-0. The Lancers have now dropped to fifth place in the OUA West standings with a record of 8-5-1. They go on the road for their last two games of the season against York Oct. 18 and Guelph Oct. 19.

Candidates Tackle City’s Vacancy Issues West-End. Elliot said he would like to see the city and the Detroit International Bridge Co. work together to help the neighbourhood move forward. “I would like to see an environmental assessment done and paid for by the city and the bridge company fiftyfifty,” said Elliott.   “The assessment is a health and safety assessment to see what the current impact is on the people that live here.” In addition, Elliott said he is concerned about what the closure of Adie Knox pool could mean for residents. He said the city needs to do “whatever it takes” to ensure the pool remains open for the community.

DANGRAY News Intern ___________________________ Boarded up houses and empty storefronts are some of the biggest concerns heading into this year’s municipal general election in Windsor.

Ward two residents have used the word “slum” to describe the area west of the Ambassador Bridge along Indian Road. The area has become increasingly derelict since bridge owner “Matty” Moroun bought up more than one hundred houses to build a

new bridge; however, the houses have been left in disrepair since he began purchasing in 1996. John Elliott, a ward two resident running for the ward 2 council position, understands the problems facing the

Potsma said she would use her experience as a former councillor and her knowledge of financial incentives like the Community Improvement Program to solve the vacancy problem. “I would like to be able to connect some business owners to various federal and provincial building grants there are out there and connect them to a grant writer that can help them with that,” said Postma. Maggio said “current entrepreneurs and business owners just don’t have the money to invest” and also said the success of other cities should be used as a model for Windsor. “What we need to do is model our façade program as well as our other programs off the St. Louis model where they actually grant the money first, but the city controls the bidding and construction of the project,” said Maggio. With these issues and many more facing the city, residents will have a chance to decide who will best represent them as they proceed to the polls on election day Oct.27.

such awesome medals.” Dave said he enjoyed the experience as well and said the couple will be back for the next one. Chief organizer and head of RunningFlat, Chris Uszynski, said he was pleased with the turnout and particularly enjoys putting on running events like the Zombie Chase. “It’s a great way to get everyone out - You see entire families come out for something like this,” said Uszynski.  “It gets the community involved when you offer ‘fun runs’ where everyone can participate, dress up, go

at their own pace and have a good time.” Despite the hundreds who signed up for this race and many other RunningFlat events, Uszynski said he has had a tougher time in getting the necessary funding for the runs. As a lesser-known charity, it is sometimes harder to be recognized. “Other local charities obviously have a great need for funding. I would be the first to tell you that this [event] in comparison takes less focus,” said Uszynski.  “But I want people to see this has value - there is a need for this.”

Nino Ricci Engages Faculty and Students in Seminar

In 2013, the Ontario government released its “Differentiation Policy Framework for Postsecondary Education,” which details its plan to rework the postsecondary system in the province and give each institution a distinct program focus.

TRAVISFAUTEUX News Editor __________________________ Students and faculty of the university have had the chance to discuss the fate of humanity with an awardwinning author.

This differentiation process, which involves the creation of a “Strategic Mandate Agreement” between each institution and the government whereby the “strengths” of each university are outlined, has caused concern among many educators in the province because the consequences for non-specialized subjects, like the humanities, may be drastic.

Nino Ricci, a member of the Order of Canada who won the Governor Generals Award for Fiction in 1990 for his novel Lives of the Saints and again in 2008 for The Origin of Species, held a seminar at the University of Windsor Oct. 10. The seminar, entitled “A Plea for the Humanities” brought students and faculty together to discuss the importance of the humanities, an academic discipline studying human culture, in a world which increasingly values scientific and utilitarian thinking instead of abstract and creative thinking. Ricci said the seminar brought a lot of good ideas to the table. “The discussion today was great,” said Ricci.  “I think these are issues that need to be discussed and it was nice to see a lot of people who were so passionate about them.”

Ricci said there is an inherent imaginative value in the humanities that cannot be accessed by any other means.

Carol Margaret Davison, head of the University’s English department, said she was happy to attend the “provocative and engaging seminar on a very relevant and complex subject.” She said she believes the topic should concern everyone in the face of current economic pressures.

“Something like a novel is a way of knowing the world,” said Ricci. “It attempts to make sense of such a wide variety of factors the way nothing else does.”

Ricci said that because universities are “becoming much more like business institutions,” more abstract skills learned in the humanities like creative, imaginative and critical

thinking are sometimes undervalued compared to practical and technological skills. However, she said people with these creative skills are still needed in the business world. “It’s not the people who follow the rules that make a big impact,” said Ricci.  “It’s the people who step outside the box.” However, some recent data shows that while humanities majors are

attaining employment after graduation, the jobs they get are not what they used to be. A study published in April by Statistics Canada named “Over qualification among recent university graduates in Canada,” done by Sharanjit Uppal and Sébastien LaRochelle-Côté, determined that one third of men and women aged 25 to 34 with a university degree in the humanities were overqualified and were employed in occupations “requiring a high school diploma or less.”

In the University of Windsor’s Strategic Mandate Agreement, released in March of this year, the humanities are said to be a “central” component of a “comprehensive university.” “Our professional programs would not be as effective if they did not take place within a university that offers foundational research and teaching in areas like English, History, Philosophy, Languages and Literature, and Political Science,” reads the agreement. “Those disciplines make a university.” Ricci said forcing institutions to pigeon-hole themselves further encourages a tendency towards “specialization, marginalization and ghettoization, and the idea that disciplines ought to be divided rather than united.”

Spitfires Struggle To Get Two Wins in a Row

Spitfires defenceman Trevor Murphy takes a shot through traffic at the WFCU Centre Oct. 9 against the Peterborough Petes. [Photo by // Richard Riosa] RICHARDRIOSA Sports Editor __________________________ The Windsor Spitfires continue to lack consistency as they follow an

overtime thriller, with a lackluster defeat. The Spits barely defeated the Peterborough Petes 5-4 Oct. 9 with a spectacular goal from veteran left-winger Chris Marchese with only 19.6 sec-

onds remaining in overtime. Both of the Spits’s wins this season have now come in the last 20 seconds of overtime. After going up 2-0 early in the first period, the Spits took their foot off

the petal and allowed the Petes back into the game with three unanswered goals to end the first period. Marchese said he was optimistic between periods that the team would bounce back and get something out of the game. “We gave up three in the first and we were trailing,” said Marchese. “We just stuck together. The boys battled for one another, we had fights, we didn’t quit and we kept working and the result was a big two points for our hockey club.” Marchese was named the game’s number one star with two goals, including the overtime winner. Head coach Bob Boughner said he was impressed with Marchese’s performance against the Petes and said he has been the Spits’s best player so far this season. “I’m 20 years old now,” said Marchese. “I missed 19 months of hockey. It’s my last shot to prove that I’m worth something in this game.” Marchese said he’s taking this season very personally and is looking to impress everyone with his play. Boughner said Marchese’s intensity is beginning to rub off on the team. He said he was very pleased with the all-around game they played against the Petes. “It’s taken five games and there’ve been positives and negatives obviously throughout the first four games,”

said Boughner. “It’s obviously our most complete game as a team and it was a rollercoaster of emotions… but the guys played hard and stayed with the systems.” Boughner stressed consistency after the win and said he hoped finally getting the chance to travel for a road game would help bring the team closer together. “I didn’t like after we won against Barrie, how we played against Saginaw,” said Boughner. “Now we’ve got to come with that same effort on the road.” The Spits would not pick up their first two-game win streak of the season however, losing their first road game of the year 9-2 in a lopsided contest against the Sarnia Sting. The Spitfires were down 2-0 after the first, before conceding six goals in the second period. Brendan Johnston made his first OHL start in goal for Windsor and made 19 saves from 27 shots before being replaced by Alex Fotinos after 40 minutes. Fotinos would make 14 saves from 15 shots in the third, only allowing one more goal. Marchese added his fifth goal of the season in the disappointing loss. The Spits will return home Oct. 16 to host the Saginaw Spirit, before taking off on a two-game road trip to Barrie Oct. 18 and Owen Sound the following day.

UWSA Governance Renewal The UWSA is undertaking a process to renew and modernize its governance structure. We got the ball rolling over the summer and will be engaging directly with our student members this fall to develop and approve a number of important improvements to the way your UWSA is governed.

Goals The UWSA has three goals for this governance renewal process: 1. to ensure that the UWSA continues to represent, advocate for, and serve its student members; 2. to comply with the applicable law; and 3. to adopt best practices for the governance of student unions

Work to date Over the summer, the UWSA engaged professional advisors to help develop a plan and renew our governance structure. A consulting firm that specializes in organizational design and change management has conducted an intensive discovery process that included reviewing our existing structure and interviewing stakeholders. They are drafting a plan to improve the governance structure, including by suggesting updates to the UWSA’s by-laws and election policy. A national law firm with significant experience acting for student unions in Ontario is helping to review the draft plan to ensure compliance with the law. The UWSA wants not only to comply with the Corporations Act (Ontario) under which it is incorporated, but also to be ready for the mandatory transition to the Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (Ontario) in the coming years.

Student engagement Student input is critical to the success of this process. The UWSA is covening an advisory committee composed of student representatives from each faculty, as chosen by the student societies for those facilities, to review and provide feedback on the draft plan. As the draft plan is finalized, it will be made available to all students for review and comment. In late October, the UWSA will host a town hall meeting to discuss the draft plan. Following the town hall meeting, the UWSA will convene a General Meeting of its student members to vote on the adoption of the recommended plan. The UWSA is planning to hold a by-election in November after the General Meeting. By completing the governance renewal process first, the UWSA aims to ensure that the election will be based on a robust and transparent governance structure that has been approved by its student members. The UWSA will continue to provide updates about the progress of the governance renewal process, including by providing notice of the dates of the town hall, general meeting and by-election, as these are confirmed. In the interim, if you have any questions or suggestions please submit them to uwsa@uwindsor.ca Office: 519.253.3000 - Fax: 519.971.33654 401 Sunset Avenue CAW Student Centre, 2nd Floor Windsor Ontario N9B 3P4 www.uwsa.ca
