    Oh cell phone, what do I even think of you? In many ways you make my life so much easier. I’m connected to everything everywhere I go and I love you for that. But my love for you is my issue, for when I have had a long talk with Mr. Jack Daniels, I love you too much. It may start innocently enough with a simple tweet like “Piñatas Rule Everything Around Me! #PinataClan.”

  • Voters need to get informed: understanding parties and politicians is a critical component of democracy

    By October 20, 2011

    With the constant stream of advertisements and articles being published, it’s hard to ignore the upcoming provincial election.

    There is a serious lack of education about the function of government in society, especially in our generation. There is also a lack of appreciation for those who fought for democracy, that I feel non-partisan movements only perpetuate.

  • A farewell to nuclear arms

    By October 17, 2011

    Twenty-five years ago this month, I sat across from Ronald Reagan in Reykjavik, Iceland to negotiate a deal that would have reduced, and could have ultimately eliminated by 2000, the fearsome arsenals of nuclear weapons held by the United States and the Soviet Union.

  • Fall fashion must-haves: the top 10 things ladies should wear this season

    By October 15, 2011

    As the temperature starts to fall, we find ourselves in that elusive season crammed right in between summer and winter: autumn. It’s easy to forget about this relatively short season but it is chock-full with some of the best the year has to offer. With fall comes fall-themed treats, the soundtrack of crunching leaves and, of course, the return of fall fashion.

    Just like pumpkin spice lattes are synonymous with fall, there are certain items that are essential to the season.

  • I am not a clan member, just a white guy

    By October 13, 2011

    The only people who would disagree that racial equality is a positive force and a worthy cause are awful, so it would be really cool if I wasn’t automatically grouped in with them because I happen to come from a coastal region in Scandinavia where humans have white skin.

  • Don’t listen to Mark Zuckerberg: anonymity and privacy still have their place

    By October 13, 2011

    There was a time when most email addresses included references to princesses, sparkles or surfing. Perhaps you remember this time, when MSN Messenger was king and MySpace was still a pedophile’s best friend.

    People’s online identities are no longer divorced from their offline lives. Our university NSIDs use our initials and it’s likely that the email on your resume is something that identifies you by name — something that surferpunk88@hotmail.com never quite did.

  • Scientists pioneering “mind-reading” technology propose wild advances

    By October 12, 2011

    Researchers at the University of California in Berkeley are developing technology that may one day read people’s minds.

    Using fMRI scans, professor Jack Gallant recorded brain activity in three people while they watched hours of movie trailers. The participants scans were then compared to a library containing 18 million seconds of YouTube clips. The end result: a computer screen showing impressive re-creations of the videos they just watched.

  • The Steve Jobs factor: Apple’s singularity of focus

    By October 9, 2011

    Normally, you need a distinctive first name not to need a last name, but in this – as in everything that he did – Steve Jobs was different. He was always just “Steve.”
