NATASHAMARAR editor-in-chief __________________________
he University of Windsor is among a number of Ontario schools battling a downward trend to fill vacant seats at its teacher’s colleges. The Ontario Universities’ Application Centre reports that nearly half, 49 per cent, of people applied to teacher’s college in January 2013 (8,199) compared to 2007 (16,042). There were 15 per cent fewer applications in the last year alone. This month, UWindsor received 1,359 applications to its education program, but 1,815 in January 2012. Compared to the year prior, the school experienced drops of approximately 13 per cent in 2012, six per cent in 2011, 21 per cent in 2010 and 35 per cent in 2009. “There is a downward spiral, said Geri Salinitri, acting dean of UWindsor’s Faculty of Education. “There was a growth from 2000 to about 2007 in the number of teachers that were hired. By 2008, it was almost a dead halt. It’s been pretty sketchy from 2008 until now.” UWindsor has extended its
deadline for September 2013 admission until March 1 in hopes of attracting more students to its education program. “We are continuing to keep the door open,” Salinitri said. “We are hoping to reach our quota, which is between concurrent and executive and the ECE program close to 500. I don’t know that we’ll reach it but we’re going to work hard.” Declining applications to teaching programs has led to fewer students in the classroom. Full- and part-time education enrolment at Windsor has declined over recent years. Fall semester rates dropped sharply from 846 in 2008— a high number largely attributed to the Double Cohort students entering teacher’s college— to 668 the following year. Admissions have remained somewhat steady since then, sitting at 635 students last fall. “Windsor is right at the end of the province and the big catchment pool is in the Toronto area. Sometimes we’re not the first choice (for applicants) ... right now most of our catchment area is going to be local students,” said Salinitri, who estimates that 60 to 70 per cent of students come from Windsor-Essex.
Salinitri also said there are too many people graduating from teacher’s college for the amount of positions available provincially. She said she too struggled to find a full-time teaching job after graduating from the Windsor program in 1978, working part-time for six years before landing something permanent. Julie Ferguson-Shand has also faced similar challenges. The 2006 graduate of Windsor’s education program never found a teaching job in Ontario. She spent years working teaching contracts in Tuktoyaktuk, N.W.T., in Nelson House, Man. on a Native reserve and three years in Ross River, Y.T. She stopped teaching last June, moving to Nova Scotia with her husband to have better access to healthcare. They now operate a bakeshop in Shelburne, N.S. “I knew graduating that there were no jobs in Ontario. When you apply in Ontario, you actually have to pay to apply for jobs, which is ridiculous. And Ontario teachers don’t make very much money compared to the rest of Canada,” said Ferguson-Shand. “When I looked at it, I could make $105,000 as a first-year teacher in the Arctic
and it’s $38,000 in Ontario. I said, ‘Sure. I’ll go to the Arctic for the experience.’” Teaching in the north, Ferguson-Shand said she dealt with isolation, the social problems affecting her students and poor salaries while working at a reserve, rather than governmentrun, school. But she said the experience of teaching a small group allowed her to develop a close relationship with her students. Both Ferguson-Shand and Salinitri agree that those wanting to teach must be open to moving out of province to find work. Salinitri said there’s a huge market for teachers in northern Canadian provinces such as Nunavut and internationally in England, Sweden, Australia and Asia. “[Working in northern Canada] you do get the isolation pay and you do get an experience that is unique. If you’re competing with a recent grad and you come back [to Ontario] with two or three years experience ... you’re much more marketable.” Salinitri said people worried about finding work as a teacher should look to the benefits that
a teaching degree provides for work in other industries. “A teaching degree gives you those interpersonal soft skills and instructional strategies that can help in many areas of management.” Many graduates don’t end up full-time teachers, FergusonShand said. “Most of the people I graduated with, I can only count two or three who have a teaching job. The rest have been on supply (teaching) for six or seven years,” she said. “Some of them work restaurants ... or are on EI because they are working a couple (supply teaching) shifts a week.” “I think a lot of people are turning away because they’ve been warned of the problems in the profession right now. If somebody had told me how hard it was to get a job, I might have thought about something else.” Despite the current employment trend for teachers, Salinitri predicts that there will be a wave or retirements in 2014-2015, and a lot of young teachers are starting maternity leaves, leaving opening doors for new hires.

re: Student sex party making Ontario political history (Do you concur? vol.85 issue#28, Jan. 23, 2013 )
Hey. I’m here from SEC. Thank you for noting us on the Twitter, allowing for a fair rebuttal of at least a couple points. That was swell of you. My first point is that nudity does not necessitate having sex with people, or that you should have sex, or even suggesting to other people that you’re interested in having sex. It’s merely a state of unclothedness. I feel like correlating ‘clothing optional’ with ‘orgy’ is a stretch. Perhaps half of the people who attended the event were nude; a small proportion of the total attendees had sex. In addition, while I was present, the people who were having sex were actually not nude for the evening; they came with their partner (for the most part), and were clothed shortly after they finished.
The second concern I have with this article is the statement that we were attempting to hide the source of our funding for this event. This is simply untrue. From the very beginning, it was stated that we rented out Oasis Aqualounge, and that was publicly available information. In addition, our source of funding (a UTSU-wide levy of 0.25$ per semester, per student) is clearly shown on our website, as is our budget breakdown. See utoronto.ca/about-sec for the evidence of that; it’s under the main ‘About’ page. The finances of SEC are examined in greater detail on both the History and Budget pages (for history of levy-acquisition and budget breakdown, respectively). In addition, we’ve even made public the cost of renting the venue ($1,100). Finally, we come to the most contentious issue in your article. It will certainly be the most difficult to address, and that is the issue of liability within a school-sanctioned event. I would be inclined to say that there is no way to pin liability for at least STIs and/or pregnancy on any one entity. It is not the fault of the establishment if every reasonable precaution has been made to counter it, it’s not the fault of the education system if all of the information and education has been made freely available, and it’s certainly not the fault of the couple should the condom break. Unfortunately, the onus typically falls to the break down of information and communication; a very nasty adversary to conquer. That being said, I understand how this would appear concerning; we rented out a space that permits people to engage each other socially or physically, in privacy or in public. It seems like an encouragement. What we feel it really is accepting and acknowledging that adults have sex. People have sex after going to other clubs or events, and often in less safe and respectful surroundings. While I am not sexually inclined myself, if given the choice between having sex at a venue such as Oasis (clean, with encouragement and free availability of safer sex supplies, where I can call for help if I start to feel unsafe and a minimum of three people will appear) compared to being forced to find another venue to have sex (say, to a back alley, or perhaps the other persons house, or worse, my house), I would take Oasis every time. It allows me to control far more of my surroundings than would most other situations. In effect, by hosting the event at Oasis Aqualounge (independently for the second time; previously it has been held at venues such as St. Marcs Spa and was a mixture of LGBTout and SEC), we were promoting safer sex, sex-positivity, respect for people of different sexual/ gender identities (through a very stringent zero tolerance policy regarding harassment; fortunately, it needed little actual use), and the knowledge that students needn’t feel obligated to have sex any which way that doesn’t make them happy. Anyways, in short, I don’t concur. I feel as though there was a fundamental misunderstanding of the venue, the event, and how SEC has handled/operated it. Of course, I’m available via e-mail at email@example.com to clear up any further misunderstandings. Sincerely, Kayla Wright Executive Director University of Toronto Sexual Education Centre
In choosing Don Valley West Member of Provincial Parliament Kathleen Wynne over former Windsor MPP Sandra Pupatello, not only did Ontario Liberal Party delegates send the first female premier to Queen’s Park, they also elected the first openly gay politician one to the province’s legislature as well. Talk about a big deal. Following a full day of voting on Saturday, it was on the third ballot, when by all accounts Sandra Pupatello was in the lead, that Charles Sousa and then Gerard Kennedy pledged their delegates to vote for Wynne.

Pupatello, who established herself as the economic candidate, has had much more experience in politics and has held more major cabinet positions than Wynne: Community and Social Services, Education, Economic Development and Trade, Women’s Issues, and International Trade and Investment. In elevating Wynne to the premiership, OLP delegates not only placed the first female and first openly LGBT woman in office, but also added the sixth female premier to the entire country. In one night, Ontario became a bit more progressive, and Canada as a whole began to reflect a more equitable gender distribution. For too long politics has been referred to as an ‘old boys club,’ and it makes me proud to know that in one night Ontario dramatically changed to reflect a bit more diversity. In due time a provincial election will be called, and Ontarians will be faced with a question which they must take very seriously: are they ready to elect an openly LGBT female to Queen’s Park?

University plans $40M rec centre overhaul NATASHAMARAR editor-in-chief __________________________
he University of Windsor has drafted plans and a $40 million budget to renovate recreation facilities to enhance the school’s reputation and join the ranks of other Ontario campuses. UWindsor senior administrators presented the project to members of University of Windsor Students’ Alliance council last Thursday. Michael Khan, dean of Human Kinetics, said Windsor can boast about the qualities of its programs, but its athletics facilities are falling behind the rest of the province. After academics, said Khan, “Sport and recreation is in the public eye more than anything else.” A new recreation centre, he said, would contribute to renewed campus spirit, student recruitment and student experience, including academic performance, well being and
social interaction. According to Khan, a number of Ontario universities have recently renovated their recreation facilities. Investments include $40 million at McMaster and Western universities, $78 million at Ryerson, $130 million at Guelph, $165 million at Queen’s and $165 million at University of Toronto at Scarborough. “We recognize that many of the universities in Ontario have leaped ahead. There is a big opportunity for Windsor too,” said university president Alan Wildeman, adding that Windsor’s student athletic and ancillary fees fall far below the $210 provincial average. For 2012-2013, Windsor full-time undergraduate students are paying a combined recreation fee and sports and recreation capital fee of $185, up 2.9 per cent over the previous year. Current campus rec offerings include the University of Windsor Stadium and St. Denis Centre, which houses
a 5,000-seat fieldhouse, pool, indoor track and a 7,000 square foot fitness area. The centre accommodates intramural sports teams for 6,000 students, fitness classes for 1,5000, 400 varsity athletes, community programs and courses for students in programs such as kinesiology, nursing and business.
firm responsible for designing the stadium and Forge Fitness Centre, has been hired to oversee the Windsor’s facility overhaul. Phase 1 of the new project would include a 20,000 square foot, two-storey fitness area, six multipurpose rooms, a two-storey field indoor fieldhouse, ball hockey and volleyball courts, two turfed fields, a pool and a cricket

pitch. The current Forge space will be used for personal training and a women’s only fitness area. The proposed centre would include learning and study spaces as well as food concession areas. There are currently no plans to build at hockey rink on the campus. “It is a challenge. A lot of universities have their
own rinks,” said Grace, adding that the Lancers hockey teams already practice at community rinks. If the university were to build a hockey rink, they would need two. “It wouldn’t be our top priority.” The university wants to put the recreation centre proposal before students during the UWSA’s October byelection as a referendum question to increase campus rec fees. The university ran a successful bid to increase student fees in 2003, which provided funding to build the Forge Fitness Centre. Wildeman hinted at annual increases of $50 to $90 per student. Grace suggested that the student contribution, adjusted for inflation, would span a 40-year period. Funding for the centre would also come from government contributions, naming opportunities and fundraising. Grace estimates that between 40 and 90 per cent could be funded by students directly. The plan is to start construction by summer 2014.

he route has been laid for a county tour that invites you to put some fun between your legs and take to the shores of Lake Erie. Windsor-Essex and Oxford County are the newest additions to the Cruise the Coast motorcycle tourism map produced as a joint effort between the southwestern Ontario counties. The map, started in 2010, now contains six counties: WindsorEssex, Chatham-Kent, Elgin, Norfolk County, Oxford and Haldimand County. It offers specific scenic routes for motorcycle tourists, the main route starting in Amherstburg and ending in Lowbanks, near Dunnville. The laminated map is 11 by 24 inches and folds down to fit into a pocket on in your saddle bags. It is available at all TWEPI locations. Clark Hoskin, manager of tourism and economic development for Norfolk County, believes bringing the map out in mid-January is a good idea for people trying to get a jump on planning their spring and summer trips.
We tend to take for granted what we have and don’t think of our home area as a visitor hot spot
GORDONORR TOURISM WINDSOR-ESSEX PELEE ISLAND
“We prepare the map to have it ready in time for the [Canadian Motorcycle Super] show,” said Hoskin. We hand out about 4,000 copies, which is a huge amount for any trade show; normally if you can hand out 200 to 300 copies of something it’s a good thing.” This time around, the alliance was approached by Tourism Windsor-Essex Pelee Island, who was looking to join. “The process went very well. We know all of the players from the other five counties,” said Gordon Orr, CEO of TWEPI. “We have participated in a number of conference calls to discuss strategy like marketing, budgets, consumer shows to participate in, circulation strategies and quantities to print.” According to Orr tourism in the area draws 3.5 million visitors yearly, and brings $400 million into the local economy. “I would say that many people who live in an area don’t necessarily recognize the tourism
assets in their own backyard. We tend to take for granted what we have and don’t think of our home area as a visitor hot spot,” said Orr. Lakeshore resident and motorcycle enthusiast Tim Fairhurst has been riding for 25 years and he is happy to see a product like this come out. “I tend to plan longer destination trips further in advance due to having to schedule vacation time, book hotels, etcetera. Shorter day trips such as the ones outlined in Cruise the Coast would probably be put together with friends more spontaneously. Sometimes a phone call Sunday morning has a few of us heading out on some the routes shown for the day,” said Fairhurst. The veteran rider noted that there are a number of dealerships and bike shops that do not appear on the map. “Having that info at your fingertips would be invaluable in case of a breakdown or bike issues,” said Fairhurst.
From marketing to finance to international trade, this program offers the unique skills you need to launch your career as a brand manager, operations planner, marketing coordinator, media analyst and many other exciting career options.

10 WAYS TO LAUNCH YOUR CAREER FIND YOUR NICHE WITH A POSTGRAD IN BUSINESS
It’s been almost two years to the date that Sandwich Town residents were rallying to save the post office at the corner of Sandwich and Mill streets from closure. They were rallying for it again on Saturday afternoon. Member of Parliament Brian Masse said Canada Post had been “cooking the books” to make the branch appear to be losing money. Those documents are still unattainable and Canada Post spokesperson Jon Hamilton stated he “won’t comment on conspiracy theories.” Regardless, the local mail facility is poised for closure by its upper management along with eight other branches across the country. “We regularly look at every municipality and see how we can serve it best,” said Hamilton. “Traffic at that location had been dropping over the last five years by 20 to 25 per cent. Customers were voting with their feet and we needed to make some changes.” Masse requested the business plan Canada Post uses to make these decisions but said he was denied access to these documents.
“It is unacceptable that a public corporation like Canada Post can try to hide behind the documents that you and your family own,” said Masse, speaking to about 150 people at the rally.
The half-hour rally drew a number of speakers such as the Ward 2 Coun. Ron Jones, Canada Post employees and

Jones said at the rally that Mayor Eddie Francis is meeting with Canada Post officials in the next two weeks, and that Francis has made this a high priority. Jones expressed concern of the closure because 20 per cent of the Sandwich population are senior citizens, including himself. The loss would mean further travel, which poises a problem for those with reduced mobility. The sentiment was echoed by Sandwich resident Darren Smyth. “[The closing of the branch] would mean an inconvenience for myself and other people that don’t necessarily have cars or are trying to use other means of transportation because it is

There are three other locations within a three-kilometre radius, but Hamilton said other viable locations will not be closed in favour of the 107-year-old Sandwich branch. “The people of Sandwich Town are stubborn and we’ve been here 400 years,” said Terrence Kennedy, a Sandwich resident. “We’re not going to let anybody write our obituaries, let alone Canada Post.” If Canada Post does choose to move out of the Sandwich Street location, destruction of the building is unlikely as the property is designated as a heritage property by the Ontario Heritage Act.

Windsor closes the tap on fluoride in city water JOHNLIEDTKE features editor __________________________
during tooth development. They also say it causes a decrease in bone density and IQ levels.
he There’s a battle being waged in Windsor, and it’s over the 58-year fluoridation of the city’s water supply.
Following a scathing article written by Windsor Star columnist Anne Jarvis on Jan. 29, in which she socratically assessed the negative claims made by opponents, the Windsor Essex County Health Unit held an emergency public meeting to address the claims Jarvis made.
One camp of belligerents claim that the other is poisoning the municipality’s water, while the other group counters the claim saying they are enhancing it and providing a much needed service to residents. A vocal group of opposition to the mandatory fluoridation of water has been making their demands loud and clear over the past year: the complete removal of fluoride from our drinking supply. Proponents claim that fluoridating water is both safe and effective— at recommended levels— in preventing dental decay, and that municipalities are able to protect not only those who have good dental insurance, but those who don’t have insurance or access to good dental care. Opponents of mandatory water fluoridation say adding the substance poses a risk to those who ingest it and that it causes dental fluorosis, a developmental disturbance of dental enamel caused by excessive exposure to high concentrations of fluoride
a couch, Ayesha Drouillard began looking into the effects of fluoride and discovered that not only do many doctors, dentists and other reputable professionals advocate for the substance’s removal from municipal water, but that the fluoride added to water itself is a byproduct of the phosphate fertilizer industry.
Timing however was tight. City Council voted 8-3 on Monday night, following six hours of debate, to accept the recommendation of the Windsor Utilities Commission to remove fluoride from Windsor’s water for the next five years and allocate the roughly $130,000 spent on it annually towards education programs.
“It’s not naturally occurring, and it’s a byproduct of the phosphate fertilizer industry,” explained Drouillard. She added that while in the past, industry would allow the toxic fluoride gases to escape into the air through smokestacks. But once it was determined to affect surrounding animals and crops negatively, laws were passed to put wet scrubbers in smokestacks to capture the toxic byproduct.
While the WECHU estimates that replacing fluoridation with a similar service would cost somewhere between $3 million and $11 million annually, such figures are based on providing services to the entire municipality, when in fact many residents are already covered under dental insurance programs and wouldn’t require additional services.
“It’s called hydrofluorosilicic acid and it’s illegal to dump anywhere in the environment [and] would cost industry thousands of dollars per ton to dispose of it properly and neutralize it,” stated Drouillard. “So they sell it to our municipalities and they add it to our water and they save [and make] money. It’s basically their solution for handling their pollution.”
After noticing marks on her daughter’s teeth and questioning why her daughter’s arm broke following a one-foot drop from
While Dr. Gary Kirk, the associate medical officer of health for the WECHU, during the emergency meeting stated that
the fluoride added to our water is a “byproduct of the fertilizer process,” he went on to claim that “not only does it not come from smokestacks” but that “rocks that contain fluoride are put through a chemical process and they produce the type of fluoride that ultimately goes into the water supply. It’s through an evaporation and condensation process, and not through retrieving that fluoride through smokestacks.” The WUC has conceded that fluoride added to Windsor’s water does indeed come from smokestacks of fertilizer plants, and when asked directly if the fluoride added to the water supply comes from rocks from a fertilizer factory, and as such from smokestacks, Kirk responded, “Yes, absolutely.” Those who oppose the fluoridation of water are often branded by advocates as conspiracy theorists and Drouillard explained that while initially the media did view her group as such, once the WUC advised the removal of fluoride, public opinion began to change. “That’s when the newspaper started changing [and] balanced information [was] presented in the articles,” said Drouillard, adding, “It wasn’t just the crazy people and the health people.”
At the core of the issue for many opponents is that municipalities act unilaterally when deciding to add fluoride to the water supply, and as such, democratic choice is removed from the equation. But Kirk believes that adding fluoride is equitable and that “this trumps individual right.” “Choice is the big word here,” commented city Coun. Alan Halberstadt. “By putting fluoride in the water, there’s a lot of people that don’t want it [and] they don’t have a choice when [it’s] put it in our water.” Halberstadt co-chairs the Windsor Essex Environment Committee, which recommended a year ago to remove fluoride from the water supply because it’s “not only a health issue, it’s an environmental issue … fluoride in our water, getting into our streams and into the lakes and rivers.” “The evidence speaks for itself,” commented Drouillard, “All the medical health officials … their job is to promote artificial water fluoridation … they get paid for doing it. Everybody on our side is just doing it because we care about our families and the environment.”

Street art explosion
D3N!@L sets up CAMP to paint the town
MADIHAKHAN lance writer __________________________
treet art has quickly evolved from a simple nuisance into one of the most thought-provoking and well respected forms of contemporary art, Windsor’s blank walls are rapidly transforming into galleries. Long thought to be something disposable and not quite legitimate, street and public art is now gaining general recognition as an effective tool for social change. Daniel Bombardier, who goes by the moniker DENIAL (or D3N!@L), is a mixed-media artist based in Windsor, and is well known around the world for his bold guerrilla-marketing campaigns.
ing culture. He believes that although street and graffiti artists might not exert massive influence as individuals, when taken as a whole movement, they have the power to act as catalysts for change. Much of this impact comes from the instant and immediate nature of the art form. “Street art reflects the cultural shift that has taken place in society,” Bombardier said. “It is fast, interactive, disseminated through media quickly and consumed by viewers moments within creation similar to modern media itself. It is so amazing that I can create something on Monday and by Tuesday people all around the world have seen it.”
“I started doing public art as a way to interact and affect my community and get my ideas out there,” said Bombardier. “I believe that artists have a responsibility to challenge ideas that seem the norm in any period of time.”
Yet, after having established himself as a reputable and prolific artist whose works are bought by galleries and collectors, DENIAL continues to be based in Windsor. The city has somewhat of a bleak reputation when it comes to art, but DENIAL sees the unique conditions of Windsor differently.
Much of the DENIAL’s work focuses on topics such as pop culture and social justice, and it serves to showcase the absurdism of our modern market-
DENIAL has been working on several projects in the community. He started a mural project in 2012, tentatively titled CAMP (Community Artist
Mural Project), in which he and 20 other talented artists painted the alley behind his Pelissier Street studio. Through the CAMP project, DENIAL has applied for a grant from the provincial government that would help offset the costs of the project. If he gets the grant, DENIAL plans on placing at least 10 new largescale murals in Windsor, which would be done by local artists, as well as artists from as far away as Florida and Montreal.

“To me Windsor/Detroit is like the front lines of an economic war going on. I am witnessing the death of the middle class firsthand,” he said, “and is this is something I reflect in my art. My surroundings are as much a part of me as my arms are, I am inspired and my creativity is ignited by this area.” “I didn’t want to be like everyone else who moved out of Windsor to Toronto, got big shoes and skinny pants, a condo and a mustache, that does absolutely nothing for my soul. I am in the trenches and I like it here.”

Protest the record industry
Protest the Hero triumph over the record labels trading pizza parties for cash JOHNLIEDTKE features editor __________________________
treet Finished with bottom line obsessed record labels who seemingly don’t care about music, Whitby, Ont.’s Protest the Hero dropped their label to appeal directly to their fans. Fortunately for Protest the Hero, online crowd sourcing turned out to be the best course of action and the band has already raised over double their $125,000 goal with over two weeks left of their 30-day IndieGoGo campaign. Lead singer Rody Walker said the biggest problem of traditional record labels is the general apathy that exists inside at the label. “You’ll find people that are very enthusiastic and love the music they’re in, but they’re
few-and-far between, despite what they’ll have you think. It’s very easy to get pushed aside and overlooked when you’re on a label.” While IndieGoGo proved to be hugely successful for the band, bassist Arif Mirabdolbaghi said they opted to fan fund their next album because of a deep rooted frustration with record labels.
“Why did we mess around playing bedfellows with labels for the last 10 years anyways?” “When was the last time you met someone who worked at Burger King and was very passionate about burgers?” questioned Mirabdolbaghi. “The fact of the matter is, when it’s your job, you kind of don’t give a fuck about it. Our band is about servicing kids. Our audience
When was the last time you met someone who worked at Burger King and was very passionate about burgers?
“We’re absolutely blown away by the success of the campaign and we’re kind of slapping ourselves,” said Mirabdolbaghi.

15 hours after launching the campaign, the band posted that they had already reached 88 per cent of their fundraising goal. By the end of the first week, they were named ‘campaign of the day’ by IndieGoGo. The group credits their success to their fans and creative pledge incentives may have driven the campaign viral, garnering 6,200 supporters by Monday night. While the entry level offers were common— $10 for a digital download of the LP, $45 for a signed limited edition vinyl— the fans with deeper pockets receive more intimate rewards. Supporters pledging $1,250 lands a pizza party with free friends at guitarist Tim Millar’s house in Toronto, complete with sleeping quarters in the guest bedroom. For $5,000, the boys promise to include the fan and a friend on guest vocals or

instrumentation on the album. While the new album won’t flow one set concept, from a musical standpoint, Mirabdolbaghi explained that it would be faster and a touch more aggressive. “I think that it’s avoiding some of the pitfalls and clichés of our genre. It’s an effort towards making a truly progressive rock or progressive metal album in the sense that it doesn’t fall into as many idioms as maybe some of our contemporaries.” “We’ve tried to be honest with ourselves,” said Walker. “If we wrote something that sucked, being fairly transparent and saying, ‘Guys that sucked, let’s go try it again,’ until we hash out the ideas enough that it’s something halfway servable.”

EVENT MANAGEMENT POSTGRADUATE CERTIFICATE
The show features over 100 shots of the city’s landscapes, people and neighbourhoods and though there is the ubiquitous sampling of ruins, Motor City Muse confronts with sights of a diverse city steeped in history, but looking to the future. “I think that there has been a constant one-directional view of Detroit that has permeated the media and art world,” said photographer Dave Jordano, whose work is featured in the exhibit. “If there isn’t some kind of balancing of the scales, then people will never get a chance to see the city from another perspective.”
Jordano, in 1973 at the age of 25, photographed Detroit‘s architecture and neighbourhoods ferociously. These photos languished in obscurity for over 30 years until he happened upon them and came to realize how much the city had changed. Inspired, he returned to the locations he’d shot in ’73 in the summer of 2010. The results are displayed in pairs of portraits, some documenting urban blight or complete disappearance of great buildings; others show little difference save the newly empty streets devoid of pedestrian and excessive auto traffic. “I’m less interested in documenting what’s been destroyed, and more concerned with what’s left behind,” said Jordano. French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson visited Detroit in 1947. Capturing shots of ordinary, random moments of city life, he noted, “In photography, the smallest thing can be the greatest subject.” The same year, Detroit photographer Bill Rauhauser discovered Cartier-Bresson’s photos. The work had a major influence on the hometown photographer’s work. Following this inspiration, his images, whether of a bored teenage girl at a french fry stall or a glamorous woman smoking, evoke a Parisian spirit with a notably Detroit feel.

Her images of unidentifiable mannequinesque women (she never features the model’s heads) under, half-in and collapsed alongside of classic Detroit autos take 1950s automotive advertising to task through a surrealist-feminist lens. The exhibition also includes Frank’s 1955 images of factory workers in the harsh dangerous and conditions that lead to the rise of the United Auto Workers’ union with Detroiter and photographer for the UAW’s Solidarity magazine Russ Marshall. Marshall’s photos of the Ford River Rouge Complex and Zug Island, which at the time was the largest integrated factory in the world, are tragically beautiful. While investigating the history of Detroit’s photography and art, between 2010 and 2012, German artist Karin Jobst, inspired by Frank, photographed the city after studying his work at the DIA. One of her works is a grid made of small vignettes of Detroit’s cityscape, architecture, public parks, freeways and stills from films about the city. Together, the images present what Jobst calls “timelayers”— architectural styles and other city sights that represent different decades in time.
“I tried to find something that said something that somehow said something about people … and human nature,” said Rauhauser.
The exhibit also features Walter Farynk, Jimmy Northmore, Mickey McGuire, Vern Hammarlund and Warren O of the Detroit School of Automotive Photography.

The exhibition runs through June 16 and is free with gallery admission. The DIA is located at 5200 Woodward Ave. in Detroit.
Robertsonin-Residence Ray Robertson takes his seat as UWindsor’s writer-in-residence KATEHARGREAVES lance writer __________________________
ay Robertson has been described as a “rock and roll Montaigne” and “Jerry Lee Lewis of North American Letters.” The Ottawa Express called him “one of Canada’s finest novelists,” and he was named a finalist for the prestigious Hilary Weston Nonfiction Award in 2011. This February, the author of six novels and two books of essays takes on a new title, that of the University of Windsor English department’s writer-in-residence. “It’s gratifying to occupy a writer-in-residence position at a Southwestern Ontario university,” said Robertson of the appointment, “because not only was I born and raised there (Chatham), but because many of my novels are set either wholly or partially in the area. I think it’s important to remind readers that their part of Canada is a rich source for interesting, enlivening art.” The writer-in-residence position, which has been filled in the past by such authors as Rosemary Nixon, Lillian Allen, Nino Ricci and W.O. Mitchell, provides UWindsor students and community members the opportunity to have creative writing consultations with a professional writer. While in past years the residencies have been nine months long, this year, the English department will offer two short-term residencies. “Ray was chosen because he is an inventive and prolific author who hails from this area and who teaches writing courses on a regular basis,” said Carol Davison, head of English. The department struggled, however, to assemble the funds needed to support the program this year. “Getting the news in July that we had not received Canada Council funding was a tough blow,” said Davison. “I badgered the dean of FASS (Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences) about how he might help us and he presented the following challenge: any monies we could raise … up to $10,000 would be matched by his office.” With assistance from writers Marty Gervais and Alistair MacLeod, who provided a photo and quote for a limited edition fundraising broadside, donations from alumni and friends of the program and a book sale run by the English Undergraduate Students’ Association, enough
money was eventually raised to not only invite Robertson to Windsor for two weeks in February, but also to host Governor General’s Poetry Award winner Phil Hall for the month of March. During his tenure, Feb. 1-15, the community can catch Robertson not only providing writing consults, but at three events, both on and off campus. The first, “An Evening with Ray Robertson,” celebrates the paperback and U.S. launch of his most recent novel, David, which deals with the life of a former slave in the Elgin settlement region near Chatham. Jointly presented by the English Department, the Northstar Cultural Community Centre and the book’s publisher, Biblioasis, the event takes place at Biblioasis’ bookshop at 7 p.m.. On Feb. 7, the English department presents a 2 p.m. reception for Robertson in Katzman Lounge, Vanier Hall, sponsored by the office of the University President. Robertson presents “Stories We Tell” at the Artists of Colour Exhibition at Mackenzie Hall at 1 p.m. on Feb. 9. Finally, on Feb. 12, the departments of English, psychology and philosophy will host “Why Live? Depression, Writing, and Finding Reasons to Live,” also at 2 p.m. in Katzman Lounge. Focusing on Robertson’s essay collection, Why Not? Fifteen Reasons to Live (Biblioasis 2011), the event will feature conversations with Robertson, philosophy professor Jeffrey Noonan, psychology professor Annette Dufresne and Jennie Boyd, manager of City Centre Health Care. Robertson penned Why Not? after he found himself asking, “Why not die?” while dealing with a debilitating bout of obsessive compulsive disorder and severe depression. After his recovery, Robertson turned the question on its head, asking instead, “Why not live?” With 15 essays covering topics from music to art, intoxication, individualit, and even death, Why Not? provides an honest and raw glimpse at the things that make life worth living. For more information on Ray Robertson’s stay as writerin-residence, or to schedule a consultation, contact hpatter@ uwindsor.ca or call 519-253-3000 ext. 2288.

do you concur?
YOU’RE PROBABLY NOT HAVING SEX WITH AN EXPERT There’s a perception among high school seniors and undergrads that anyone having regular sex is swimming in orgasms and euphoric sex hangovers. But in the non-romcom world I like to call “reality,” sexual encounters during the teen years and early adulthood are often awkward, uncomfortable or forgettable. That’s especially true on university campuses, where the majority of students have a sexual history dating back a couple of months at most. On average, Canadians trade in their v-card at around 17 years of age, and less than a third of those between the ages of 15 and 17 have had sex at least once, according to Statistics Canada. But by the time those teens reach college age (18 to 19 years old), about two thirds report having had sex at least once. Those numbers spike dramatically as students enter into young adulthood: approximately 80 per cent of 20- to 24-year-olds have had sex. All these numbers suggest that the majority of students lose their virginity during their undergrad. So unless you’ve been in a relationship for a while, you’re probably not having sex with an expert. And the approximately two thirds of boys between the ages of 14 and 17 who watch pornography may have a slightly embellished view of what sex is like.

Unless you’re having sex with a complete sociopath, most people get pretty turned on by a partner who can describe in explicit detail how they want to be fucked— especially during a heated bout of foreplay. Moreover, sharing your own desires with your partner can encourage them to reciprocate, effectively making the experience all the more enjoyable for the both (or all) of you.
Gary Van Lare Rino’s Kitchen, 8 p.m.
Following a study of 115 undergraduates, “On the Relationship Among Social Anxiety, Intimacy, Sexual Communication and Sexual Satisfaction in Young Couples” author, Jennifer Montesi, found that “being able to openly communicate with one’s partner is important for the development of intimacy … and sexual satisfaction.” These conversations don’t necessarily have to include smut speak, although that kind of language is certainly acceptable. It can be as scientific or erotic as you want, but the most important thing is to be clear. Ambiguity may just lead your partner astray and could cause some very awkward moments. Also, it’s important to understand that sexual expertise is quite a sensitive topic for most young people; everyone wants to be a sexual champion, though few are. Choose your words carefully and make sure you don’t seem accusatory or disappointed. Precise phrases like, “I like it when you touch my __” or “It feels good when you do __ with your __” are a lot more effective than, “Ew, that’s so irritating,” or “I’m never going to come if you keep doing that.” And although it can be tempting to slap someone who’s poking your sexy parts like an elevator dashboard, try to restrain yourself. For some people, even saying the words “stroke” or “lick” out loud can be anxiety-inducing. But you can always show if you can’t tell. Demonstrate on yourself the way you want to be touched, or alternatively, guide their hand with your own. Lastly, remember that it’s near impossible to teach someone a subject you know nothing about. Take some time during study breaks to fool around solo and learn what areas of your body are most pleasure-inducing. Originally appeared in The Ubyssey (University of British Columbia)

eventually stuffed in a small box before he starts giving up names of high level operatives.
ivorced from reality, Zero Dark Thirty is a taught, well-casted thriller. But when CNN already spoiled the ending, it’s hard to enjoy the film knowing that the filmmakers have taken liberalities with the plot.
The scenes are tense and hard to watch, and from a purely narrative sense they certainly serve to raise the stakes of the investigation led by Maya (Jessica Chastain) into the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden.
Torture sets the tone of the film right away. After listening to the real 911 calls of terrified people stuck in the upper floors of the World Trade Center, the film cuts to the detention of Ammar, an Al-Qaeda operative. He’s blasted with metal music, water boarded and
Of course, the historical record differs on this score. Several U.S. politicians, including Sen. John McCain— himself a survivor of torture in a Vietnamese POW camp— spoke out against the depiction of torture in Zero Dark Thirty as essential in finding Bin Laden. In reality, many of those tortured
gave misleading information about his whereabouts and the final determination came about because a massive interagency effort to find intelligence. Critics have blasted Zero Dark Thirty for being thinly veiled Republican, pro-torture propaganda. It’s a hard distinction to make in this case. The Obama administration is certainly portrayed as being rather ineffective (the president’s only appearance is a TV interview in which he condemns torture, putting him in opposition of the film’s central theme that torture is necessary). Had the names been changed— had it not been Bin Laden, but

Passion Pit’s earliest roots stretch back to 2007, when frontman Michael Angelakos produced a Valentines mixtape of songs for his girlfriend. The recording, Chunk of Change EP, turned into some low-key live performances with the vocalist singing alongside his laptop. Later, at the behest of his friends, this turned into a full band that sang at several well-known Boston venues. Passion Pit’s success came quickly.
At first glance, A$AP Rocky appears to be just another self-indulgent gangsta rapper basking in the newfound fame stemming from his 2011 mixtape Live.Love.A$AP. With his major label debut Long.Live. A$AP., Rocky continues his thuggish bent, contrasting his Harlem upbringing with the spoils of hip hop stardom. The end result is a lyrical workout affirming Rocky’s position as New York City’s premium gangster poet.
A strong vibe can be felt strongly across Passion Pit’s newest release, Gossamer, especially through the duration of tracks like “Constant Conversations,” where Angelakos’s rhythmic crooning is backed up by layers of lofty harmony and a chorus of whoa-oh-ohs. “I’ll Be Alright” offers the quintessential wall of synthesized pop that the band has come to be known for, while “Take a Walk” and “Hideaway” sound summer-festival-ready. The choruses in “Cry Like a Ghost” are drawn-out and have a distinct shoe-gaze feel to them. The songs explore issues ranging from alcoholism to self-worth and mental illness. They provide a narrative for being lost in an overly-stimulated society. “Love Is Greed” put me in a pensive state with the lines “love is just greed / it’s selfish and it’s mean / you follow or you lead.” Angelakos talked about love in a post-release interview, saying “On a literal level, love does not make sense, but that’s what makes it love.”
Consider that Homeland, the massively popular TV show about another female CIA operative chasing a terrorist cell, also shares a lot of the same right wing overtones, happily justifying all sorts of illegal surveillance. Yet, because it’s pure fiction it’s acceptable. Zero Dark Thirty has all the elements of a great film. You can’t get through about a minute of the film without finding another excellent character actor show up. It’s also incredibly well shot. In particular,
the actual raid on Bin Laden’s compound is probably the closest any of us will ever get to participating in a military raid. There’s an excellent documentary or book to be made about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden one day. On its own, with no changes necessary, it is a thrilling story. But film by its nature requires we make certain narrative choices that may work to heighten elements of the story. But when the true story is so close to us, and has so many facts available, changing the truth begins to smack of politics and propaganda rather than true filmmaking.

Simply put, Long.Live.A$AP is the present embodiment of NYC’s hip hop culture, which sorely lacks a figurehead given the decreasing output of stars like Jay-Z. But like Jay-Z before him, Rocky is an egoist who ably justifies his young wealth while sharply outwitting those who hate him for it. The flawless closing track “Suddenly” is the fever pitch of Rocky’s underlying thematic struggle. Beginning with a calming portrait of the backyard barbecues that defined his life, Rocky then shifts personas for a rapid-fire montage of past memories— both light and dark— struggling to hold on to them as they fly by. As self-indulgent as he may be, Rocky shines within the current crop of obnoxious gangstas as one who puts pleasure first, while leaving a subtext below the wit rich enough for us to discover some of the sacrifices of his fame.

Saturday’s game was a bit of a mismatch, Lancers head coach Chantal Vallée conceded, with veteran laden Windsor hosted by youthful Waterloo at the Warrior’s Physical Activities Complex. But in terms pursuing her team’s goals, Vallée also believes it was a better game. “I was a little nervous because we could have played down, but we did not,” Vallée said. “We were also able to try a few new things offensively and defensively.” Noticeably missing from the Lancers box scores, however,
was Jessica Clemencon’s rebounding prowess. “Jessica was involved in other ways out there today,” Vallée said of the fourth-year forward who was 7-7 from the free through line and with 15 points in total. “Not only was that good leadership for our team which struggles from the line, I trust her to show up for the big games as she always has,” Vallée added. The Lancers as a whole were 27-32 for an 85.5 per cent rating in foul shooting. Leading the way, Lancer guard Korissa Williams had 18 points, four rebounds and six steals. Miah-Marie Langlois joined Clemencon with 15 points. Bojana Kovacevic also had another all around strong game with 11 points, six rebounds and three steals. McKenzie Lougheed scored nine points and Sam McIntyre tallied seven points for the 0-15
The firstplace ranking feels good CHANTALVALLÉE
Waterloo Warriors, who are on a 33-game losing streak dating back to Nov. 18, 2011. Windsor won Wednesday’s game against McMaster (7-8) by almost a 20-point spread. “This game was much better than when we played McMaster the first time, Williams said. “Because at McMaster we won by like eight, but today it was by almost 20. It was also good because we got everybody in the game and ‘France’ (Jessica Clemencon), Bojana and MiahMarie had a good game.” Clemencon’s production was the most efficient with 21 points along with eight rebounds in only 25 minutes of play. Also for the Lancers, Lan-
glois had 14 points, Williams had 13 points and Kovacevic had six points, six rebounds, four assists and four steals. Responding for McMaster was their leading producer Hailey Milligan, who finished 18 points and 13 rebounds along with Daniel Boiago’s 13 points. The victories helped reestablish the Lancers as the top performers in the country. Former leaders Fraser Valley and Regina both lost games on the weekend and dropped to fourth- and third-place, respectively. Most notably, however, conference rivals and previously undefeated Brock Badgers fell miserably Saturday 63-38 to the Marauders. “We aren’t concerned about other teams’ results,” Langlois said. “Past games will not matter when we play (Brock) this Saturday. We focus on ourselves. As far as being No. 1, to me that’s just a number, so it doesn’t mean much.” “The first place ranking feels
good now that we are reaching our peak relative to others,” Vallée said. “We’re entering the toughest part of our season these next three weeks, as we’re heading down the final stretch, and to see us peaking at the right time is also very exciting.” Windsor takes on the Western Mustangs (8-7) this Wednesday in London at 6 p.m. and then are back at home Saturday to play Brock (14-1) at the St. Denis Centre at 1 p.m. Should the Lancers beat Western and Brock beat the winless Waterloo, Saturday’s game will determine whether the Mustangs can redeem themselves from the humbling loss against McMaster and be back in a tie for first with Windsor. Otherwise, the Lancers could potential create more space between them and their closest rival while potentially closing out the regular season with a perfect record.

he Lancers Men’s Basketball team extended their winning streak to five games following an 83-71 win over the Waterloo Warriors Saturday. Enrico Diloreto led with 18 points while Josh Collins and Lion Phillip each had 15 points for the Lancers. Windsor was 31-73 or 42.5 per cent from the field while Waterloo, with 20 less shots, was
47.2 per cent. A 14-27 ratio at the three-point arc kept the Lancers ahead each quarter. “We won every quarter but never got complete separation in the game,” said Lancers head coach Chris Oliver, who likened the win to Wednesday’s 80-73 victory over McMaster. “The second time we play a team they are much more prepared for our pressure so we have to be resilient in controlling the controllables,” he said. “We won the boards, had 19 more field goal attempts and only had three turnovers. Overall, it was a good solid road win.” The Lancers are now 12-3 on the season, with two of those
three losses taken on the road. “Every road environment is an experience for our guys,” Oliver said. “Much like in our future trip to Thunder Bay (Feb. 8 at 8 p.m.), Waterloo had fans behind our bench who were loud and potentially distracting if we weren’t mentally tough.” “I thought we handled it well and the plan is to be more prepared and engaged for our upcoming games.” The victory gives OUA Westleading Windsor a four-point lead over the Lakehead Thunderwolves, who beat Laurier this weekend 10-175. Windsor is now in a three-way OUA tie with Ryerson (12-2) and Ottawa (12-4), and six points
behind the province-leading Carlton (15-1). This week’s CIS ranking have Windsor in fifth place, up from eighth. “The ranking is great for our fans and alumni because it reflects the respect and success of this team. However, it doesn’t ultimately win us any games,” Oliver said. “We need to keep focusing on the emotional equity of our team and do the hard work every day.” The Lancers earned their fourth straight win with Wednesday’s victory over McMaster. Diloreto tallied 15 points and seven rebounds, while Ismar Seferagic had 13 points.
Ryan Christie, who returned to the line-up after attending to personal matters in Jamaica, posted four points and three rebounds. He attributes the Lancers’ scrappy practices to keeping the team on its toes. “We don’t care or have any love for each other in practice,” he said. “We always try to dunk on each other and throw each other out of the way. So that’s definitely good preparation for playing against other teams because I’m sure there’s not a lot of teams that practice as physically as we do.” Windsor is at Western University Wednesday at 8 p.m. and back at the St. Denis Centre Saturday to host Brock at 1 p.m.

Windsor Express roll over lightning 99-93 KIMELLIOTT lance writer __________________________
he Windsor Express ended a four-game losing streak by coming away with an impressive 99-93 win over the first place London Lightning before more than 1,000 fans Sunday afternoon at the WFCU Centre. While statistically London outworked the Express in rebounds and in limiting turnovers, Windsor beat the Lightning where they needed to. Express power forward Chris Commons lead all scorers with 28 points and six rebounds, with substantial support from small forward Kevin Loiselle, who had another double-double with 12 points and 14 rebounds. Darren Duncan scored
24 points and Mike Helms chipped in with 16 timely points, before fouling out in the last quarter. Windsor Express head coach Bill Jones also had high praise for sidelined former Lancer Greg Surmacz. “Surmacz was our lucky charm today,” Jones said. “He was our second leading scorer before going out with an injured hand.” For the humbled London Lightning, shooting sensation Rodney Buford clicked for 21 points, Elvin Mim’s scored 17 and Adrian Moss scored 16 points. Marvin Phillips’ thunderous dunk from the baseline left of the hoop was undoubtedly the qualitative play of the game. Refuting the victory was one of luck, Express coach Jones said.
“They are the best team in the league, by far, so what we did was just go out here and play them tough to get the momentum on our side. In doing so, we proved to them and to ourselves that we can reach reach goals to make the playoffs and contend for a championship.” Assistant coach Gerry Brumpton was also happy with the victory, citing that the Express outshot the Lightning in all phases of the game. “Darren Duncan was 9-10 from the foul line and a couple other guys were prefect,” Brumpton said. “We gave the team some points of emphasis, they listened and so we got it done.”
attributed talks from Jones as a motivating factor. “Coach set us down and went over our roles and my role is to bring energy, Morris said. “This was such a good win to get.” Echoing Morris’s sentiment was team captain Anthony Johnson. “This is a very very big win for us as a team and as an organization. Our leaders and veteran’s stepped up today and provide our team with some poise under pressure. They’ve been through this before and so they really came and stepped up for us, espe-
cially us rookies.” With attendance doubled since Windsor last played the WFCU Centre, Express owner Dartis Willis is beginning to see the fruit of his ‘sixth player’ marketing tool. “I believe that everyone is beginning to understand that this is not mine,” he said. “It is theirs, it’s ours.” Express will play their next two games at home against the Oshawa Power Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. and against the Montreal Jazz Feb. 13. Both games are at the WFCU Centre at 7p.m. Tickets are two for $10 for students.

he Windsor Men’s Volleyball team suffered back-to-back losses 3-0 against York and 3-1 McMaster on the road this past weekend. Friday, the Lancers had a rough night in Toronto, losing sets 15-25, 17-25 and 14-25. Greg Simone led the way scoring nine-and-a-half points including nine kills, while Shawn Reaume and Kyle Williamson added seven and a half points each. Andrew Chelladurai had 12 assists and Blase Wasser came close with 11. “York played error free volleyball,” Lancers head coach Shawn Lippert said. “Whenever you play like that, you’re going to win nine times out of 10, and they went in the next night and beat Western too so it wasn’t a fluke.”
Award winners Lancers basketball head coach Chantal Vallée and track and field head coach Dennis Fairall were awarded Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals Wednesday at separate Windsor venues. Vallee received her award from MP Brian Masse at the half-time period of Wednesday’s match against McMaster. “I was totally surprised to receive his call and tremendously honoured to receive it in front of our home fans, Vallee said. “Especially in the venue wherein we have earned so much of our success.” Fairall’s award was presented to him by MP Joe Comartin at the Windsor Yacht Club. Men’s hockey The Windsor Lancer’s Men’s Hockey team split a pair of games against Lakehead on the weekend at Windsor Arena, losing Friday 3-2 in a shootout and winning Saturday 6-3. Friday, Lancers Matt Beaudoin and Brett Oliphant scored to force the game into overtime and a shootout. Parker Van Buskirk had 19 saves in the loss. Saturday, Christian Steingraber, Matt Beaudoin, Brett Vandehogen, Derek Lanoue, Jadran Beljo and Steve Ferry each scored singles for the Lancers. Van
The Lancers were able to recoup and bring a better game Saturday to Hamilton, winning in the first set 25-23, but followed it with losses of 14-25, 17-25 and 22-25. Williamson picked up a team high 19 points, including 13 kills and eight digs, while Simone contributed nine points including seven kills and six digs. Adam Thompson chipped in seven-and-a-half points, including six digs and Chelladurai continues his game-high assists per set of 29. “McMaster being the CIS No. 2 team in the country, I think the pressure was off of us. We actually came out on top the first set,” Lippert said. The Lancers have the home court advantage this Friday and Saturday when they face the Toronto Varsity Blues and Ryerson Rams at 8 p.m. at the St. Denis Centre. Buskirk had 33 saves in the win. Friday, the Lancers host first place Western at Windsor Arena at 7:30 p.m. This game also marks ‘Hats on for Healthcare’. Fans are asked to wear fun hats.
