It’s a bold move for a radio station to claim to play “the best music of all time.” It’s even gutsier for that radio station to be run out of your bedroom. Third-year engineering student Leejay Schmidt is doing just that. He started an online radio station, the Mix, which went live in August and has a growing worldwide listenership.
A male University of Saskatchewan student has been arrested in relation to the sexual assault that occurred in McEown Park on New Year's Eve.
The No. 3 ranked Huskies men are set to host the Canada West Final Four for the first time ever following two wins against the Trinity Western Spartans at the Physical Activity Complex Feb. 24 and 25. The men played a close first game against the Spartans on Feb. 24, but pulled ahead in the final quarter to win 98-83. Fourth-year guard Jamelle Barrett scored 36 points for the Huskies — more than a third of the team’s total. Meanwhile, despite a wobbly start on the first night of a two-game series against the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack, the No. 3 ranked Huskies women’s basketball team ended the weekend by sweeping their opponents.
If there is a distinct genre of Canadiana, Zachary Lucky surely falls within it. The Saskatoon singer-songwriter’s plaintive melodies about “the open road” and other folk themes are hardly new territory, but Lucky pulls it off without coming off as derivative. Armed with an acoustic guitar and a plaid shirt, the 23-year-old’s songs are more about the storytelling than about orchestral flourishes.
The days of being handed a Playboy by your father when you reach puberty are long gone. Children today usually discover the Internet’s pornographic potential by age 11, and the relationship with porn is one that outlasts most others in men’s lives. Despite its seeming ubiquity and variety, there is an inescapable truth about the erotic entertainment that comprises so much of the web: almost all porn available online is utterly wretched.
Environment Canada warns Saskatoon and Southern Saskatchewan will face a "major winter storm beginning on Saturday." The late-winter chill comes to the area via Alberta and promises "a heavy dump of snow and very strong easterly winds," with 10 to 25 centimetres of snow before the end of the weekend. Despite the bad news, Saskatoon will be spared the brunt of the storm as the corridor stretching from Kindersley to Moose Jaw is expected to get the heaviest snowfall.
The university’s spending and planning will see a heavy focus on research for the next four years, as outlined in the Third Integrated Plan. The integrated plans, first introduced in 2003, set multi-year priorities for the University of Saskatchewan, with the third plan set to come into effect in early March once the university council and board of governors approve it.
Wine bottles. Toothpicks. Silk thread. Using such small, simple components, Kai Chan captures the small, simple moments in life. Over a dozen works spanning 35 years of Chan’s career are currently on display at the Mendel Art Gallery. His installations and sculptures are often misleadingly simple to look at. What may look like loose heaps of branches entangled in each other is, upon closer inspection, meticulously assembled, with each joint strategically connected to other components in a towering work that makes one marvel at the patience required to create this illusion.
On Feb. 1, dozens of rallies took place at Canadian universities as part of a National Day of Action to reduce the costs of post-secondary education. The event was sponsored by the Canadian Federation of Students, a national student lobbying group, and organized by individual student unions affiliated with CFS. The University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union, however, did not take part.
At one time, buying and selling used textbooks was a simple process. Most used books were sold through consignment at Browsers, operated by the University of Saskatchewan Students' Union. Your book would sit on the shelf and, if sold, the students' union would take a cut of the profit. This proved wildly successful and generated hundreds of thousands in revenue for the USSU.
