newsScientifically InclinedWhy mosquitoes preferto feast on some andignore othersArielle Duhaime-RossThe woods have an uncanny abilityto separate us all, regardless ofgender or ethnic background, intotwo basic human categories: thosethat mosquitoes ignore and thosethat mosquitoes cannot get enoughof. Those of us stuck in the lattercategory often try to explain, ratherpitifully, this terribly annoyingdivide by citing the popular myththat their blood is “sweeter” thanthose who are ignored by mosquitoes.Sadly, when faced with theburden of a few dozen mosquitobites, this explanation does nothingto assuage an itch.Until now, answering why mosquitoesprefer to bite certain peoplehas remained elusive, but scientistshave finally come up with ananswer to this question and havepublished it in the journal PLOSone. As it turns out, mosquitoespreferentially bite people who havecertain bacteria on their skin andavoid others for the same reason.Skin bacteria are what givehuman sweat its odour. Each oneof us has a unique combination ofspecific microorganisms on ourskin that make up our own uniquescent. In this study, scientists, ledby Niels O. Verhulst, assessed themosquito attractiveness of 48 men,ranging from 20 to 64 years of age,and then correlated these resultsto each participant’s skin bacterialcommunity composition andmicrobial abundance. Their attractivenesswas determined byAnopheles gambiae, a nocturnalmosquito and the most importantmalaria vector in Africa.To make sure the observed mosquitoattractiveness was as accurateas possible, participants were askedto refrain from consuming alcohol,garlic, onions or spicy foodbefore the experiment. They werealso asked to forgo showering orusing cologne twenty-four hoursbefore being sampled.Skin emanations from the undersideof the left foot of eachparticipant were collected twiceover the course of three days. Eachsubject took part in two successiveolfactometer experiments. Theseexperiments consisted in presentinga female mosquito with twobeads, one covered in a subject’sskin emanations and one coveredin ammonia, each placed ina separate trapping device. The attractivenessof a participant’s scentwas determined by the fraction ofmosquitoes caught in the trappingdevice containing the beadladen with human scent dividedby the total number of mosquitoestrapped in both trapping devices.The scientists used rRNA genesequencing to determine the skinbacterial composition of the footof each of the subjects.The scientists found that thecomposition and the abundanceof the skin bacteria influenced therelative degree of attractiveness tothe mosquito. Interestingly, themen with the highest microbialdiversity were the least attractive.This study might turn out to bea source of relief for many, as thescientists believe that they wereable to identify the types of bacteriathat were the least attractive to themalaria mosquito.

Whatever money is accumulatedwill then be utilized tosupplement any tree planting initiativesthan what is comprised inthe city budget.“This program is to augment andcompliment other programs so thatthe city budgeted planting and theroad program we still support,”continued Gray. “So this is just anotherstep to provide more treesthroughout the city of Guelph.”The city has always offered whatis called the Commemorative TreeProgram, where donated monies gotowards a tree with a commemorativeplaque. However, this kindof donation is not accessible to themajority of residents: the price ofa commemorative tree costs approximately$1000.“The program really was topromotes the availability of involvementto the greater community,”said Gray.Although the program mostlyaccepts monetary donations, theyalso accept what is called an “inkind donation.” This means thatresidents have the option of donatinga specific tree. This type ofdonation is a little more involvedbecause the plant must be pre-approvedby the Forestry Department,on the basis of species, season andplant health.Greening Guelph recognizes thatmany of the donations are given asgifts and are extremely personalin nature. Therefore, if a donatorhas a specific park that they wanta tree planted, the program will tryto ensure that those funds go to theselected area.The program will bring treesto areas that park plannersdetermine need substantial“greening”.

Following the arrests, authoritiesplucked body piercingsfrom the youths, confiscated theirclothes, shaved their heads free ofmohawks, and forced them to bathein a lake. Afterwards, press was notifiedthat the youths would undergo10 days of “moral education” at apolice detention center, pendinggood behaviour. That “education”would involve mandatory prayersessions, hours of military-stylemarching, and lectures from officers.Aceh Governor Irwandi Yusuf hasdefended the actions of the Shariapolice, claiming “the police arehelping them develop [their skills].”The Aceh province has the highestproportion of Muslims in Indonesiaand, semi-autonomous from theIndonesian government, featuresregional levels of Sharia law.While many have been deploredby the authorities’ actions and thereare several international appeals insupport of the punks, Aborted SocietyRecords– a label distributingmusic mainly by metal-influencedcrust and hardcore punk bands–responded to the news by creating“Mixtapes for Aceh!,” an initiativeintended to display western solidarityfor the detained youths.Occupy Wall Street performancesSince its beginnings in September,the Occupy Wall Street movementhas garnered attention and supportfrom all varieties of celebrities.While some artists’ alignment withthe movement can be pulled intoquestion (see Jay-Z’s “Occupy AllStreets” shirt), the movement hasalso meant a series of free musicalperformances from artists wishingto supply a soundtrack to the revolutionand situate themselves insupport of the 99 per cent.Perhaps the most outstandingdisplay of support came frommusician/activist Tom Morello. Inmid-October, the innovative guitarist,best known for his work inRage Against the Machine and Audioslave,took to Wall Street withjust his voice, harmonica, andacoustic guitar to treat fans to severalsongs of rebellion and manywords of encouragement. Performingunplugged, Morello relied onthose around him to make his songsspread throughout the streets. Frequentlypausing for “microphonechecks,” the performer would singa verse or make a statement, andthen wait for the crowd to chant itback at him.Other notable Occupy Wall StreetTen Irresistibly CatchySongs from 2011The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – “Heart inYour Heartbreak”Lemuria – “Chautauqua County”Tennis – “Cape Dory”Austra – “Lose It”Eleanor Friedberger – “My Mistakes”Princess Chelsea – “The Cigarette Duet”Vivian Girls – “Take it as it Comes”Bibio – “Take Off Your Shirt”Yacht – “Shangri-La”Unknown Mortal Orchesta – “Ffunny Ffrends”performances included David Crosbyand Graham Nash, Peter Seeger,Anti-Flag, and Jeff Mangum of NeutralMilk Hotel.The Juggalos are a gangIn the loosest sense of the word,any grouping of people as small asa couple can be classified as a gang.In that way, it can be said that InsaneClown Posse/PsychopathicRecords enthusiasts identifying asJuggalos have always fallen into thatcategory. In early November, Juggalosfrom Utah; Arizona; MonroeCounty, Pennsylvania; and Modesto,California were pegged as a gang ofthe more nefarious, criminal varietywhen the Federal Bureau of Investigationreleased its 2011 NationalGang Threat Assessment, whichclassified the face paint adornedfans as a “loosely-organized hybridgang.”According to the report, “mostcrimes committed by Juggalos aresporadic, disorganized, individualistic,and often involve simpleassault, personal drug use and possession,petty theft, and vandalism,”although “open source reportingsuggests that a small number of Juggalosare forming more organizedsubsets and engaging in more ganglikecriminal activity, such as felonyassaults, thefts, robberies, and drugsales.”The Girl with the Drake tattooImages surfaced in December ofan eyebrowless woman with an`BestMusicVideosTop Ten Albums1.

The winter semester’sanswer to the DSF’s orientationweek one-act festival, theSno-Week festival features newsingle act performances that arewritten, produced, directed, performed,and casted entirely bystudents, with shows runningat the George Luscombe Theatrefrom Jan. 12-14.The plays were submitted andpicked in mid-November. Directorswere chosen the next week,with casting spanning the weekthat followed. This semester’sfestival involves approximately35 students.Due to fall semester exams andthe holiday season, little time isleft for rehearsing individualperformances.“We came back after the breakand we basically just had thisweek to rehearse,” said MikeWeber, one of the actors performingin the festival.According to DSF presidentAndrew Luscombe, who is alsodirecting one of this semester’sone-acts, this semester’s playswere selected from as many as20 submissions.The submissions that workthe best are the ones that requireminimal props and stagealterations.“You don’t have much time towork a play after it’s chosen, soyou’ve just got to find somethingthat’s got good characters,reads well, and try to have someAlbum Review: SkrillexBangarang3.9/5Iain StoroskoUnless you have been living undera rock for the past few years, thename Skrillex is one that willstrike a chord (or a bass drop)with you and especially withthose who live for the ever growingworld of electronic and dancemusic. Sonny Moore– better recognizedunder his performingname Skrillex– began his risefrom the obscurities of the screamoscene to his place as a fixturein electronic music in 2007 andwhen his fourth EP Bangarangwas dropped on Dec. 23, it shotto the top of the charts on bothiTunes and Beatport in less thana week. What is it exactly thatseparates Skrillex from the literallythousands of up-and-comingDJs out there?Bangarang instantly assaultsyour ears with powerful electronicgrooves and beats thatsend you into an uplifting partystupor that you’ll find almost impossibleto shake, an impressivefeat from only seven songs, butperhaps that is all it takes. Rightoff the bat you are given one ofSkrillex’s signature dubstep driventracks with “Right In,” full ofenergy and a momentum that carriesyou from zero to 60 in about27 seconds with a bass drop thatis guaranteed to get you movingto the beat.One of the reasons for the successof Skrillex is his unique blendof multiple electronic genres intothat are going to be fun for peoplebeside some that are bit morehard-hitting in some ways,” Luscombesaid.While – beyond the one-actformat – there are no restrictionsplaced on submitted scripts, theDSF strives to arrive at a diversityof performances.“That way it doesn’t dissuadepeople from submitting scripts,”DSF vice-president Sean Jacklinsaid.Jacklin promises that this year’sgroup of performances offers afair mix between comedy anddrama.“We’ve got a sex farce/kind ofAmerican Pie-ish thing, we’vegot dark comedies, we’ve gota really interesting one personshow that basically delves intothe human psyche…it’s a vastrange of performances,” Jacklinsaid.a concrete sound that pulls influencefrom his rock roots. Oneexample is the title track “Bangarang.”With all the electro groovesand rocking guitar riffs one couldhope for, Skrillex adds in the hiphop lyrical styles of Sirah, a recipefor musical success. And whatbetter way to embrace one’s rootsthan to collaborate with membersof The Doors themselves? With therocking track “Breakn’ A Sweat”Skrillex does just this for a songthat is bound to end up on morethan a few people’s pump up playlists.There is no loss of energy as thealbum comes to a closing note.With the haunting track “Kyoto”we are given a darker side of thealbum but still with a pumpingbeat and relentless energy.

Recommendation:if you are readingthis, take the time to truly listento this track and be taken toa place like no other.The whole album together spansground encroaching on electrogrooves, trance hooks andof course, dubstep. This albumseems to be so much more thanthe average dubstep ensemblesthat are in ample supplythroughout Youtube’s channels.Bangarang delivers driving bassheavyrhythms and jumping beats,all the while maintaining a melody9and a hook that keeps you askingfor more. This doesn’t make outto be a tall order for an artist thatseems to be only giving us the tipof the iceberg so far. This EP is anamazing addition to the repertoireof any dance or electronic enthusiast,and it can be safe to say thatthis will not be the last instalmentof Skrillex to send our ears somesweet, sweet salvation.Courtesy

But not without a fight.“Windsor outscored us 33-9 inthe first quarter, we played evenin the second, then lost the thirdquarter by two and the fourth quarterby two. So as disappointed as Iwas with the first quarter, I wasreally happy that the kids didn’tpack it in and stop playing in thelast three,” said O’Brien. “Themessage I kept giving [the team]at time-outs is to just chip away,chip away, chip away. You’re notgoing to make up a thirty point differencein one quarter.”Although starting the season offplaying the third and sixth rankedteam in the country was indeed adaunting task, O’Brien is confidentthat the next time the Gryphonsplay them it will be different.“Brock went undefeated until lastSaturday when they lost to Laurier,soI think there’s going to be a lotof games like that, where peoplethink one team’s going to win andthe other team does. I think it’sgoing to be a really tight league,”said O’Brien.The two-game losing streakplaces the Gryphons at an even.5 percent, with six wins and sixlosses. Last year at this time, theGryphon team had a similar record,having won and lost an equal 10games.If the team’s hard work and teamchemistry is any indication of theirpotential, the Gryphons might justbe able to turn this season on itshead.“I don’t think we’ve played withall cylinders firing [yet],” saidO’Brien. “It reminds me of one ofmy University of Waterloo teamswhen I coached there.

The 6’8” Wilson, who wasnamed this week’s Gryphon Athleteof the Week, played a key rolein the turnaround from his positionat Middle Blocker. “He’s a very cerebral,a very smart kind of player,”said Wigston.Marc is just one of the many playersthat have stepped up to theopportunity this year, replacingone of five starters from last yearthat have since graduated or movedon from the program.

By Duncan DayOn New Years day, riders of Guelph Transitwere introduced to the city’s new transitsystem, including modified routes, route numbersand a change in service frequency.The most notable change featured is thenew route numbers. Gone are the days of the52 University-Kortright. Welcome the East andWest Loops. Although many of the routes haveonly slightly changed, the revamped numberingsystem reflects that some great changeshave taken place.The East and West Loops, for example, areoffshoots of the former Perimeter route. Thatroute, the 70A/B, used to depart from the UniversityCentre bus loop and run both clockwiseand counter-clockwise around the outside ofthe city. That has been broken in half, with themeach doing smaller loops which meet both atthe University Centre and at the transit hub atSt. George’s Square, with ‘A’ and ‘B’ routes againrunning in opposite directions around thecircuit. These routes, the 2 and 3, are now theprimary route running between campus anddowntown, replacing the 51, 52 and 54.Although replacing three routes with onlytwo may seem like it could negatively impactservice, that’s not what Guelph Transit expectsto take place, and one of the ways they’vehoped to combat this is by altering the serviceschedule. While the old system included20-minute daytime and 30-minute eveningand early morning service, the new scheduleis broken into 15-minute service during peakusage times and 30-minute service schedulesoutside of this, an attempt to accommodatepassenger frequency.“We […] noted that our demand in termsof when our riders took the buses was verypeaked. We had high demand in the morningand high demand in the middle of the afternoonto early evening,” said Michael Anders,general manger of Guelph Transit and CommunityConnectivity. “In the midday we didn’t havea lot of riders on our vehicles. It wasn’t a veryefficient use of [resources].”“That’s how we came up with the peakservice concept,” he continued. “We are allocatingour resources much more efficiently, muchmore than running 20 minute service all daylong.”In addition to monitoring ridership, GuelphTransit also attempted to communicate withits riders to gather information not just on howmany people are riding the bus and when, butalso how the buses are used.“We had an extensive public consultationprocess, including students from the Universityof Guelph. We had public meetings, we hadsurveys, we had personal interviews, we didsurveys on the buses, we did passenger counts.We did a variety of things,” said Anders. “Thatwas part of the process in developing this.”Although outreach was done to someriders, many were left confused, angry andlost trying to navigate the new system. Linesformed behind Transit employees stationedat St. George’s Square who were helping assistriders who were trying to figure out just whichbus would get them where they needed to go,and many drivers were left scanning throughhandouts and map books in order to help passengersnavigate their way through the routes.It was especially alarming for many students,who returned to the city after the winter breakto an entirely new system already underway.Guelph Transit tried to prepare for this, andhas staffed the University Centre similarly tohow it has St. George’s Square.“What we’re trying to do right now, especiallysince this is the first week the university isback, is have a number of our staff members atthe University Centre this week watching ouroperations in terms of volume of activity, whenthe buses are getting in and out and so on andso forth,” said Anders. “We’ll be tweaking ourservice a little bit based on the on-street experiencethat we’re getting.”Masceto bTranAdenwith“SwhathathavsaidwecanDmiscomon trepmanJandenAwithbotnotMschphtI didn’t know a lot about it, butthere was a person here whohelped me out.

You canfreeze one sized servings and savethem for lazy days. Be sure to checkthat the tupperware you’re using isfreezer friendly, and don’t freezeanything you’ve reheated.Warning: using purple huskedwild rice will turn your souppurple. Yup.Ingredients:1-2 turkey thighs skinned4 carrots cleaned and chopped1 cup of frozen corn and/or peas1 onion peeled (throw it inwhole, you’ll take it out later)3 cloves of garlic peeled (samefate as the onion)3/4 cup of rice or barleyWater or stock1 tbsp salt1/2 tbsp ground pepper1/4 tbsp oregano1/4 tbsp thyme (optional)1/2 tbsp parsley1 bay leaf2-3 vegetable or chicken bouilloncubesStep 1.Get all of your ingredients peeledchopped and ready, dump themall into a medium-large pot andcover with water so that all ofthe ingredients are completelycovered with an extra half-inch.Seriously just throw them allin there. It’s that easy. You canuse stock if you prefer it insteadof the water and bouillon cubemixture.Step 2.Turn the element on high heat toget the mixture boiling, be sureto put the lid on and keep a closeMy love of little liversDuncan Day-MyronMy parents grew up in postwarEngland: a time of war cleanup andfood rations. A people that havenever been celebrated for theirfood, the English didn’t need tolower their standards too muchduring food shortages. My parentsnever abandoned that mentality,and I grew up on a steady diet ofwhat most people around theseparts would consider the garbageparts of food. Liver, kidneys, heart,tripe, tongue, oxtail: if it was everattached to an animal, it was fairgame.As a child I never thought muchof it. It was just food I was usedto. As far as I knew, everyoneon the block was having tonguesandwiches and beets for dinner.I still eat all of the above, and Istill love it. Many of my friends– andeven more of my roommates– haveturned their nose up at it. Usually,I don’t care. I just think it’s theirloss and more organ-meat for me.But part of me also wants to shareit. So every week, I’m going to picka different weird, uncommon orsimply unpopular food item that Ihave grown to love over the yearsand sign its praises. It won’t alwaysbe organs, or even meat, but I amgoing to start with that.First on the list is a relatively newfavourite, the glorious chicken liver.To most, a chicken liver is either intendedfor gravy, pâté or cat food.It doesn’t need to be any of thosethings.eye on it in case it tries to overflow.Add in the salt along withthe rest of the spice.Step 3.Once the soup is boiling turnto medium-low heat and let itsimmer for two to three hours.This is a perfect opportunity tocatch up on homework, favouriteTV shows or take a much needednap. The simmering process willallow for the ingredients to cometogether and for the oils to comeout of the turkey, creating a silkytasting soup. You want the turkeyto boil off of the bone in the simmeringprocess. If the soup hasbecomes too thick during thesimmering process feel free toadd more water to get the desiredconsistency.Once the soup has reached itsdesired consistency turn off theheat, let it cool, serve, and enjoy.Chicken livers are surprisinglyeasy to find. Most chain grocerystores will keep them in their refrigeratedmeat section. They’requite small, about the size of anapricot. Preparation for them isfairly easy, but it does take somehands-on work (which is going tosound a lot grosser than it actuallyis). Take the livers out of the bagthey are usually packaged in, anddrain off any liquid. Each liver iscomprised of two lobes, which youneed to split to ensure they cookevenly. Just open them up and cutdown the middle. Take this opportunityto look for anything whichshould have been removed prior topurchase, such as excess connectivetissue or the gallbladder. Thegallbladder will be a small, darkred ball, about the size of a fingernail,attached to the inside of theliver. It is obvious if you see it, anda pack of livers will generally haveone hidden among the bunch. Theyare totally edible, but have an unpleasantbitter taste.In the early twentieth centuryand especially during the depression,chicken livers were a verypopular breakfast dish, especiallyamong the American working class,Medium8 Item Pizza$9.99 plus tax!*Delivery Charges Apply*and even more so among the hungover.They were popularly servedfried with bacon and onions andserved with toast and reheated leftovers,such as potatoes and greenslike kale, collards or spinach. Inthe depression, probably also somepolio, broken dreams and dust.I usually eat them for dinner, butI keep some of that spirit alive.Chicken livers2 strips bacon265 Eramosa Rd.Guelph, ON519.829.2828Katrina SalmonDuncan Day-Myron3-4 chicken livers per personmilk or buttermilkflourcayennesalt and pepper to tasteCut up bacon into small piecesand fry.

lifeSex Geek: Spicing up your New Years resolutions167.1 ◆ january 12th – 18th, 201217Shireen NobleIt’s that time of year again. Thedays are short, the nights are cold,and we’ve made resolutions to tryand make up for any of the slip-upswe may have had over the holidaybreak. A new year and a new semestermake for new resolutions.Luckily, it turns out that some ofthe most common resolutions canactually be used to improve yoursex life. And what an incentive tokeep up those resolutions!Common Resolution: ExerciseSex-positive Resolution: ExerciseNo, this isn’t about losing weightor fitting into a smaller size (althoughweight loss can alleviatesome symptoms of erectile dysfunctionin older men), it’s aboutgetting off the couch and gettingyour blood pumping. Exerciseincreases endorphins (feel goodchemicals), promotes blood circulation,and generally helps youto feel better about yourself. Allof these can help to improve yourmood and sex life. Or maybe improveyour flexibility. I mean,have you ever heard someone say“oh no, we can’t try this position,you’re too limber!”Common Resolution: Trysomething newSex-positive resolution: trysomething new in bedSure, the sex that you and yourpartner are having right now mightwork for you. . . but is that any reasonto keep from trying somethingnew? Expanding your sexual repertoirecan help you communicateyour desires, negotiate boundaries,add some excitement, and evenstrengthen your relationship.Introducing something newcan be tough, so here’s a suggestion.Make a list of differentsexual activities (it could be positions,props/toys, places to havesex, etc.) and go through it withyour partner. Put a yes beside thethings that you’re excited to try,no beside the things that aren’treally doing anything for you, anda maybe if it’s something you’dconsider. Figure out what piquesboth of your interests and havesome fun.Common resolution: Do somethinggood for yourselfSex-positive resolution: MasturbateLadies, I’m (mostly) talking toyou. Specifically to those of youwho don’t masturbate. Why not? Iknow, no matter how progressiveyou may try to be, there’s sometimesthat lingering socializationtelling you that women aren’tsupposed to have sexual feelings.But still, there are tons of benefitsto masturbating to an orgasm:you get to know your own bodyand what you enjoy, you spendsome time on yourself, you burncalories, relieve tension and canhelp you sleep better. That wholeidea we seem to have about partners‘providing’ orgasm? Bullshit.You’re the one in control of yourown sexuality, and knowing yourbody is an important part of beingable to enjoy yourself.Common resolution: Get organizedSex-positive resolution: Schedulesex with your partner.Whenever I’ve heard thisbrought up, I’ve always heardpeople groan about it, claimingthat it takes the spontaneity outof sex. But why does that matter?What happens when you putsomething into your schedule- ameeting or a class or a deadline? Itmeans that you’ve made time for it.If you know that you need to finishstudying in time to be able towatch the Maple Leafs embarrassthemselves again, you make surethat you’re getting that studyingdone on time. Now let’s apply theprinciple to sex.You know that you and yourpartner have two hours set asidefor sex as long as you get all yourwork done beforehand. So youmake sure that you get it done,right? Two major bonuses overspontaneous sex: you’ve actuallygot the work out of the way andit’s not weighing on your mind,and you know that the two of youhave time to really enjoy yourselves.Put it in the books. Theanticipation can be fun. Can youreally see yourself looking at youragenda and saying “oh darn, I can’tmeet my coworkers after work fora beer tonight, I have to go homeand have sexytime with my partner.”I didn’t think so.(And a bonus tip for this: turnyour phone off. Unless you havea really, really good reason (likeyou’re a doctor on call), youshouldn’t be checking your phoneduring sex. If it’s too much of atemptation, leave it in a differentroom. This also protects you fromleaving it unlocked on the bed andaccidentally dialing your cousinwhen you roll over on it.)Beth’s Craft CornerMake your own floatingcandleBeth Purdon-MclellanThis craft is incredibly simple andwill be one that you make on aregular basis. Floating candlesare extremely delicate and createa wonderful ambiance that goesbeyond your average tea light.You will need:A tea lightA mason jar (or any recycledglass jar)A knifeRibbon (optional)Remove the tea light from itsmetal casing by gently pulling itout by the wick. Don’t worry ifpart of the wick snaps off. Youcan always cut away a bit of thewax around the base of the wickto make it longer for lighting.A tea light is the shape of a squatcylinder. Take the knife and cutaway the bottom edge of the cylinderto create a curved base. Ifyou think of a boat, it is this edgethat will keep the candle afloat.Test the buoyancy of the candleas you cut in a bowl filled withwater: you may find that youhave to make the curve steeper tokeep the flame above the water.Make sure that your mason jaris clean. As stated above, youcan do this craft with any kind ofjar. However, I find that a widemouth mason jar that is used forpickling is the best because I caneasily fit my hand inside to lightthe candle. Any residue on theinside of the jar will block theview of your candle.If you want, tie ribbon or yarnalong the neck of the jar.Fill the jar halfway with waterand carefully place the candleinside. Light the wick and enjoy.Marianne PointnerWeekly DogVanessa HusseyTaken in 1988, this photo of Cleo is the mostrecent one her parents have of her. It was takentwo weeks before she disappeared.

Different styles andshapes coming and going with thepassing of decades, including theirincreasing removal from the homeand consequent placement in thepublic domain.Gone are the days when ashtrayswere the centerpiece of everykitchen counter and coffee table.When everybody had an ashtrayin every drawer, ready to pull outwhen company came over.Nowadays, if you’re a smoker,you may have a hard time findingan ashtray. Most stores includingbig chains like Walmart don’teven carry them. Instead, ashtraycollectors have been forced to pilfergrandparents’ homes or scourtheir local Value Village.Ashtrays that were once woveninto the intricacies of a person’spersonality have faded from existence.Fallen from grace alongwith the popularity of smoking.Reading Michael Ondaatje’sRunning in the Family over theholidays gave me a renewed senseof the importance of family objects,even if that was not the intentionof his semi-autobiographical book.The image of my grandfatherwho has since passed away is incompletewithout a trail of smokeleading down to a cigarette, andon his right, a tiger-eye colouredglass ashtray. This ashtray I cannotseparate from the memory ofmy grandfather.“Gone are thedays whenashtrayswere thecenterpiece ofevery kitchencounter andcoffee table.”There was one more ashtray thatmany visitors to my grandparent’shome never saw. In my grandfather’sworkshop used buttssmoldered away in a rough metaldish, a piece welded off the top of awater pipe. This I never knew. Notthat he kept it a secret, thoughhe was a quiet man about whomthere are many other things I alsodo not know. Strangely enough,this one ashtray has helped meunderstand a bit more about theperson my grandfather was. Sonof a grain ship captain, born abovethe liquor store on the main street,plumber aboard ships, a romantic,an alcoholic, an ashtray on theside table.In his absence, the orangebrownfloral print chair watchesthe Blue Jays, the crack of the bat,the smack of a glove– on mute– inmy grandfather’s place.courtesyRecently I’ve found myself wonderingwhat my father’s ashtraylooked like, though he has neversmoked a day in his life. If I hadto imagine one for him I thinkit would be glass as well, likemy grandfather’s. Dark purpleperhaps.


opinion167.1 ◆ january 12th – 18th, 2012Facebook losing face?Emma FalzonFacebook is an integral part oflife for a lot of people. Updatingstatuses, uploading pictures,keeping in touch and sharingevery little tidbit of our liveswith each other. Without lecturingabout the societal impactof the technological revolutionthat is Facebook, its meaningto different generations is quiteinteresting.Ironically over Facebook chat,my 15-year-old cousin came tome with what she made to seemlike a major problem. Apparently,she had accidentally deleteda profile picture and was desperatelywondering if all thecomments and likes that hadbeen associated with the photocould be recovered. Mildly baffled,I told her I did not think shecould and it amazed me just howupset she was, claiming that shehad over 30 comments and 45likes. The only times I have everseen that many comments andlikes on one photo or status waswhen a major piece of news surfaced,like an engagement, newThe perils of overprotectionCarleigh CathcartDisclaimer: Reading this articlemay result in strained eyesight,sore neck, or paper cuts. Neitherthe publisher nor the author areresponsible in any manner for anyoffense, injury, or death that mayoccur. Please sign the attachedwaiver before continuing to readthis article.Sound far-fetched? How aboutexaggerated, paranoid or ridiculous?You may find this satireamusing, but there is some darktruth to it as well. The world, itfeels, has become an over-regulated,rule-obsessed place. With everypassing year we face the approvalof invasive laws, tightened restrictionsin essentially every aspect oflife, and limit-happy politicianswho seem to find great enjoymentin deciding what citizens can, cannot,or must do.Short of confining every “fragile”human being into a well-oxygenated,styrofoam-padded room, therewill always be risks associated withour everyday actions. (This is neglecting,of course, the possibilityof a styrofoam recall, which mayoccur if the manufacturer discoverstainted material that poses ahealth hazard.) Yes, there are obviouslyrules for which compliance isnot only mandatory, but commonsense. Seatbelts, helmets for potentiallydangerous activities, andlimiting tobacco/alcohol sales (toa point) are necessary. That beingsaid, it is sad that the governmentschool or another major lifeevent. The idea stuck with meand I “creeped” another friendof mine who also seems to have avery active Facebook. It was likeeach profile picture or mobile uploadwas in competition with thelast to have the most comments.Is Facebook the new popularitycontest? Who has the mostfriends, who has the most likes,the most comments? Personally,an overinteraction on Facebookdoes not seem desirable (at leastto my generation) but given thetechnological advancements andtheir place in society, maybe it’sinevitable. Whether you are atechno-pessimist, a techno-optimist,or a bit of both, Facebook’simpact on all of its users is prettyinteresting.But how is Facebook being perceivedby other generations? Thedangers of the Internet as a resultof the information we post arebecoming more apparent. Postingendless drunk party picturesor writing inappropriate statusesand comments could influenceopinions of an individual lateron. Certain people are actuallymust regulate these safety approachesinstead of letting citizensuse sound judgment.When I was in elementary school,we were allowed to bury each otherin the snow. We played Red Rover,had wooden climbers, and sat onmonkey bars. We bought candygramson Valentine’s Day (heavenforbid if someone didn’t send everychild in the school the exact sameamount of treats) and even– gasp!–ordered the occasional chocolatebar with a school hot lunch sale.And you know what is remarkable?Not one of us died. Oh, with ourreckless ways, how lucky we were!If you are able to detect my sarcasm(you may not if your parentshave exposed you to only happiness,praise and fairness that lifemust certainly bestow upon usall), you (hopefully) can agree thatthings these days have gone too far.Throwing a snowball at school is themodern-day equivalent to beatingsomeone up.Instead of teaching our childrenbalance and proper nutrition, wesimply try to “shield” them from“evil” foods that are forever prohibited.This leads to a lack of properfood education, as well as possiblerebellion (kids tend to binge on unhealthysnacks when they get homeafter a less-than-desirable schoollunch) and dangerous eating habits.Instead of discipline and guidance,we seem to guard ourchildren from all that may causeindependence, self-reflection ornegotiation. We (wrongly) behavecutting down their friend list anddeleting old photo albums.Why the generation gap then?Why are some people brutallycompeting for the most likesas if all they do is honourable, whenin reality this leads to extremehighs or lows of self-confidence.It is a dangerous fact that pupilsfollow the direction of a crossingguard, rather than properly applyingthe “look both ways” adage thatis simple yet life-saving.And instead of allowing our childrenfreedom of play/exploration(within reason), we create an imageof the world as a dark, scary place,where conflict equals violence, discoveryequals danger, and roaminganywhere past the backyard is akinto a death sentence. No wonder weface an obesity epidemic.I’m not advocating the returnof corporal punishment. I’m noturging the retraction of workplacesafety regulations. I’m not evenasking for restored playgroundstructures (though they may be enticingenough to actually encouragechildren to play). What I am tryingto do here is open your eyes to asociety that has becoming increasinglyregulated; one where we arebeing suffocated by red tape, blanketrules, and narrowing freedom.We cannot shelter our youth fromthe perils they will undoubtedlyface in “the real world”. So why dowe try to do so? It can safely (punintended)be said that we are notdoing them any favours.One more thing: when finishedreading this article, it is stronglyrecommended that you cleanseyour hands with hand-sanitizer,lest your skin absorb the possiblytoxicink print. Have a great day!and have no problem displayingtheir lives on their wall, whileothers are trying to hide anddelete anything that is mildlycompromising? Maybe it’s just19Marianne Pointnersomething that comes with ageand experience, but then again,I was pretty excited when figuringout my new timeline.


www.theontarion.com20 opinionLimiting your speedEmma FalzonAs we drive down the highway,we notice (or at least, we hopeone notices) the mandatory postedspeed limits. Not adhering tothese legal limits could result inspeeding tickets, but can alsohave more catastrophic consequences.We all know that speedkills; driving too fast can causeaccidents of all magnitudes, attimes leading to severe injuryor even death. Even though thisfact is of common knowledge andperhaps common sense, peoplecontinue to speed.“While it isimportant to allowcars the ability toincrease speedwhile passing, giventhe posted speedlimits, there doesnot seem to be aneed for vehiclesto travel at thespeeds that they arecapable of.”By gauging our speedometers,it is possible for any one vehicleto go as fast as 180 km/h orfaster, even though the clearlyposted speed limit on most majorfreeways is 100 km/h. While a 10or even 20 km/h increase abovethat will probably not result in aspeeding ticket, going any fasterrisks a high probability of gettingone if you are caught. Whythen is it that our vehicles havethe capability in the first placeto go so fast? Cars share the roadwith other vehicles, includingtransport trucks. While there areclear differences in the physicalpresence of trucks on the road–such as their size, stoppingabilities, and blind spots– thereare limitations that are enforcedupon trucks, in orderto apparently make roads saferand greener. Speed limiters areplaced on all heavy trucks in Ontario,limiting their maximumspeed to 105 km/h. The Ministryof Transportation claims that notonly would there be 100 millionlitres of fuel a year saved, whichis equivalent to 280,000 tonnesof greenhouse gas emissions, butMON/TUES/WED/FRI 8:30 - 4:30THURS 9:00 - 4:30that roads will become safer forall drivers.Given the technological capabilitiesof these devices and themonitoring and enforcement effortsthat are made possible forpolice and MTO officers, thepotential implications of thesespeed limiters on all vehicles isquite significant. An electronictesting device can be plugged intoa section in the cab of the truck,allowing the officer to determineif a limiter is in place.While it is important to allowwww.uoguelph.ca/studenthealthservicesMON/TUES/WED/FRI 8:30 - 4:00THURS 9:00 - 4:00Feeling Better Now® - is an online mental health program to assist students in maintaining their wellbeing.To access go to: www.feelingbetternow.com/uoguelph and then enter the access code: uoguelphMarianne Pointnercars the ability to increase speedwhile passing, given the postedspeed limits, there does notseem to be a need for vehiclesto travel at the speeds that theyare capable of. Perhaps enforcingthese speed limiters on all newand current vehicles could makefor much safer roads.However, there are going tobe some practical problems withthis idea.First, it would need to becomea federal law, which requirestime and approval. Second, therewould be serious financial implications.Not only would carmanufacturers need to accountfor the speed limiters in theirmanufacturing process, but currentvehicles would need to beoutfitted with the device as well.There is a chance there wouldbe reluctance on the part of carowners to pay for the installationthemselves, so there would bea financial burden placed uponthe government to reimburse carowners, or create some sort ofbursary program.The idea is solid; its worksfor heavy trucks and has obvioustranslatable benefits toother vehicles. Its applicationand practicality, however, poseproblems that may take sometime to resolve. However, theend result may mean much saferroads, less fuel usage, and lessspeeding tickets.


22 www.theontarion.com opinionFire Away: My New Year’s resolution: no more yearly resolutionsStephanie RennieSomething miraculous seemsto happen in the wee hours ofJan. 1 as the clock strikes twelveand inebriated partiers everywherecelebrate the beginningof the New Year. The concept ofa new year is filled with endlesspossibilities and optimisticaccomplishments that we havefailed to achieve during the last365 days. A clean slate for a newand improved you, a chance tofinally lose those last ten pounds,and an excuse to try and quitsmoking once again. With this inmind, people continue to drawup their New Year’s resolutions,no matter how small and minute,or large and improbable.I used to spend a great deal oftime reflecting on the past yearand devising my New Year’s resolutions.In 2008 I vowed to be lessstressed out and more organized.I gave up two-and-a-half weekslater because my resolve to stressless actually resulted in greateranxiety. In 2010 I promised myselfthat I would never ever celebratethe coming of a new year so vivaciously(and later rather painfully).That one was easy to keep until Dec.31, 2010.This year is different. I havemade a resolution not to makeone gigantic, overwhelming, unattainableresolution, but to insteadmake small changes throughoutthe year as I see fit. Hopefully thiswill result in less spontaneous purchasesof random exercise DVDsthat are never opened.New Year’s resolutions, althoughsometimes motivational and resulting ingreat progress, are often very problematic.The first week back at universitydemonstrates the fluctuation existingin such overhauls of everyone’s lives.Firstly, the gym is packed. People thathave never set foot in the gym rushtowards the weight room hoping tofind endless motivation, catching theirbreath as they arrive.Of course, exercising more often andeating well are very important changesthat many promise to make this time ofyear. Such a resolution couldn’t comeat a better time after an entire weekof holiday goodies, eggnog and endlessfamily dinners with overflowingplates. The real issue of this resolutionis that too many people don’t properlyresearch what being healthy truly entails.Instead, they spend three weekshyped up on protein bars at the gym andspend the remaining 49 weeks of theyear downing potato chips on the couch.Another common resolution thatensues is striving to become a betterstudent. Fall grades are released justin time for students to enter a week ofholiday intoxication and denial, followedby a vow to make things betternext semester. Organizers, agendas andnew binders are purchased with thehope that winter marks will compensatefor academic devastation in the fall. Ofcourse this resolution works out quitewell in the first two or three weeks ofthe semester when students are able tokeep on top of the work, however theend of January always brings an avalancheof stress filled with sweat pants,midterms and all-nighters.Taking time to make accurate reflectionson our lives is vital, otherwisewe might never make essential changesthat are necessary for our healthand well-being. I think that resolutionsare a positive part of making steps towardsfinally quitting smoking, gettingin better shape and improving marks,but such things take time and effort allyear round.Small and thought-out resolutionsshould be made throughout the yearto avoid obsessive fixations during themonths of January, followed by completeforgetfulness of the resolutionitself come March. My resolution thisyear is to continuously strive to makesmall resolutions throughout the nextduncan day-myrontwelve months instead of making oneambitious promise that will surely leadto disappointment in the form of anoversized bag of chips and dusty runningshoes.Stephanie Rennie is the editor-in-chiefof thecannon.ca.


www.theontarion.com24 editorialThere’s no such thing as accessibilityMultiple times a semester theobnoxious Imaginus Poster Saleswamps the UC courtyard. Theposter sale offers first year, andperhaps upper year students, achance to squander their moneyon over-used images. Thoughposters with slogans like “KeepCalm and Carry On” can helpmake your dorm room feel a littlemore ‘homey,’ the poster displayno doubt makes the UC less welcomingfor persons with mobilityissues.Getting from one end of the UCto the other during the poster salecan be difficult and time-consumingeven for people withoutmobility issues. For people withmobility issues, the once-easytask of traversing the UC is notonly complicated by the constantneed to avoid studentswho stop in the middle of pathwaysto gawk at large posters ofsemi-nude women making out orJohnny Depp shirtless and smoking,but also by the inaccessibilityof the UC as a whole. Routes to andfrom wheel chair ramps becomeincreasingly restricted during theImaginus poster sale, as well as FairNovember.I’d like to voice my discontentwith some serious shortfalls inthe latest Ontario Liberal Party’splan for post-secondary education.First of all, while I think thegrant for students is a noble idea Imust stress that I believe a reductionin actual tuition all acrossthe board would have been muchmore effective and fair. The problemswith this new grant ariseWe at The Ontarion are leftwondering if the Fair Novemberand Imaginus solicitors haveeven paused for a moment to takeinto consideration the hindrancetheir displays cause for those withmobility issues.Students with wheelchairs,power chairs, crutches, motorizedscooters, canes, the elderly,the list goes on… all are affected bythe inconsideration of the postersale and Fair November events.Not to mention the mob mentalitythat students seem to adopt whenforced into shallow walkwayscan be downright scary: trip andit’s likely students will continueto step over you. God forbid youknock over a wall of posters.When classes end periodicallythroughout the day andlarge swarms of students channelthrough the narrow poster tunnels,the congestion only makes itincreasingly difficult for personswith mobility issues to get to andfrom the bus loop or simply frompoint A to point B within the UC.Outside the UC, the accessibilityissues continue. Seeminglypointless construction directly infront of the UC, in particular thefrom two major areas of concern;mature students and studentsattending ministry approved privateinstitutions. The grant is onlyavailable to students who havebeen out of high school for lessthan four years – mature studentsare ineligible and to make mattersworse will lose another grant(Technology & Textbook grant)which is being eliminated toblockaded cement ramp that wasconstructed during Fair November,is not only a nuisance, but alsoan added obstacle for persons withmobility issues who are trying toget to the bus platforms.Some of the staff here recentlywitnessed a commuter in a powerchair trying to get from the bus tothe UC having to rely on the helpof some friendly passers-by to pickup and move the fencing across thepavement just to make the pathclear enough for the chair to getthrough.In addition, carelessly built temporaryramps leading into a couplebuildings on-campus are equallyinexcusable. Ramps leading up tonon-automatic doors pose a formidablechallenge to the manystudents on campus who alreadyface limited accessibility, forced touse only certain entrances regardlessof the location of their desireddestination.We at The Ontarion would liketo see just a little bit more considerationtaken for these students.Maybe some extra planning toensure that more than one routeis left wider or open for thesestudents to use, and feel morehelp supplement the new grant.Private institutions which mayoffer a better teacher-to-studentratio and possibility acceleratedprograms to get you workingsooner are shut out altogether.There’s no escaping the factthat employment opportunitiesin Ontario have been changingfor quite some time. Becauseof this it is understandable thatthere are more adult students inOntario colleges and Universitiesthan ever before. They arepreparing for the future just liketheir younger counterparts – sowhy are they being excludedfrom educational benefits?Brett Ryan BookBrock UniversityWho’s advocating that foodlabels show the farm gate cost/unit of measure info for consumers?Who’s advocating thatpoint-of-sale slips show foodmiles for each Canadian foodproduct (Area code of farm gatesource to area code of point-ofsale?Does anyone at the U of Ghave an interest in promoting thistype of transparency? Or mighttenures be jeopardized shouldany staff member push for this?The food transparency movementis touted as a safety measure--perhaps to some degree, but themovement is to benefit the majorfood retailers by cost reductions totheir administrative functions &better direct law suits to ‘responsible’parties for perceived/actualcomfortable navigating.Or perhaps schedule the postersale around OSAP pickups andmove the poster sale into PeterClark Hall where it belongs. Aswe’d like to point out, it makes nodifference to us students whetherthey make revenue from us or not.When the UC was originallyconstructed, it was built with theagreement that the majority of thebuilding would be student space,and frankly, the Imaginus postersale and Fair November disregardthis agreement, as they render theUC inaccessible to students withmobility issues. At night when theFair November booths were shutdown, getting from the north tothe south end of the UC with amobility device meant you’d haveto leave the building and re-enterat the other side.Most students on this campus arefortunate enough that these issuesdon’t present themselves, butthey are there and they do affecta large number of students andother people who use this campus.These UC courtyard events needto start taking that into greaterconsideration.lettersdamages incurred to them ‘bysomeone else’. Would be pleasedto learn if anyone might have aninterest in advocating ‘transparency’endeavours include benefitsto farm producers and consumers.Vern BretinTo the Editor of the OntarionI just wanted to share a specialappreciation for something thatis uniquely U of G: the CannonFlowers.Without fail, the charming phenomenonof their bloom occurs forthe first week or two of the semester.You can identify them by wherethey grow and the distinctive fruitthey bear. In great numbers, theysprout up in an erratic oblong, likethe circles kids who can’t reallydraw circles draw, around thecannon. They hold up their preciousbounty: textbooks for that specialsomeone they met online.There are hundreds of easilyidentified places that people canmeet on campus to avoid the awkwardnessof standing in a confusedcrowd looking for someone to pickthem like that sad puppy at thehumaine society; but cannon flowersonly grow in one place. Maybethat’s the draw, maybe its one ofthose rights of passage for cashstrapped U of G students. Harvestwill soon come, but while I can, I’llsmile and chuckle to myself andappreciate it every time I pass by.Galen FickThe Ontarion Inc.University CentreRoom 264University of GuelphN1G 2W1ontarion@uoguelph.caPhone:519-824-4120General: x58265Editorial: x58250Advertising: x58267Accounts: x53534Fax: 519-824-7838Editorial Staff:Editor-in-chiefDuncan Day-MyronSports & Health EditorSasha OdesseArts & Culture EditorTom BeedhamNews EditorBeth Purdon-McLellanWeb EditorBakz AwanAssociate EditorDivinus C.
