You bought a girl a few drinks at
the bar, you’re hitting on her, and
she’s ‘flirting’ back. She seems to
be into you, and is getting pretty
drunk, she agrees to go back to
your place with you. Is it okay to
have sex with her? Louise Pitre,
executive director of the Sexual
Assault Centre in London (SACL)
stressed that it is against the law to
have sex without consent: “If
someone’s drunk, they can’t give
consent, even if there’s a ‘yes’
there.”
Lois Wey, manager of
Counselling and Accessibility
Services at Fanshawe, said that
men especially need to be aware of
this. “It’s very dangerous for
young men to assume (yes)
because he didn’t hear ‘no,’ or
because he pushed a little further
and no one pushed him off … or
that she ‘gave into him’ …
Continually being aggressive and
pushing yourself onto someone,
it’s not consensual sex.”
One in four women who began
college or university this
September will experience sexual
violence by the time they finish
school. The risk of sexual assault is
four times greater for women aged
16 to 24. Why is sexual assault so
common among college-aged
women?
Pitre said, “The women are more
vulnerable. They’re entering either
university or college at a younger
age, and there are a number of sit-
uations that make them a bit more
vulnerable.”
Wey agreed that it’s the nature
of these situations that makes it
dangerous. “A lot of students are
new to London, and they’re new to
campus. This is a community of
15,000 students. Many of our stu-
dents who come here come from
towns that are smaller than that.
They know the good guys, the bad
guys; they know the support sys-
tems, where to walk and who to
call.”
Here, everything is new, and that
can sometimes create new dangers.
Wey stressed that the beginning of
the year is a high-risk time.
“People have more money, there
are more parties at the beginning of
the year, there’s less work, and
people just aren’t really grounded
yet as to where they fit in this new
community.”
According to London police,
there were 152 sexual assaults and
aggravated sexual assaults that
took place in London in 2011.
Over 60 of those victims were aged
11 to 20, and 42 were between the
ages of 21 and 30. Pitre said it’s
also important to recognize that
statistically, only 10 per cent of
these crimes are being reported.
“Sexual violence is the crime that
is the least reported in our country
and in our province.”
This has become a huge issue,
and Wey stressed the importance
of reporting these incidences.
“They need to make a report for
their own well-being, get medical
attention if that’s needed, get infor-
mation about their sexual health.
And the other reality is that if that
student has assaulted someone on
campus, they’ll do it again, so it
helps to protect your peers.”
According to SACL, sexual vio-
lence can be defined as anything
from forced touching, kissing or
fondling to forced participation in
sexual acts, manipulative sexuality
and discrimination based on gen-
der to sexual intimidation, threats
and fear.
Approximately 80 per cent of
sexual violence incidents are com-
mitted by someone the victim
knows. The problem is often that
we don’t suspect it, suggested
Wey. “We often think about the
bad stranger, the weirdoes out
there. The challenge is that sexual
assaults are most commonly done
by someone the student knows … a
friend of a friend, someone they
know in class, someone that looks
lovely.”
Although often times there may
be no warning signs involved, Pitre
said there are some things to look
out for such as whether you’re in a
healthy or unhealthy relationship,
being controlled, and being
respected.
You can also be cautious when
starting a new relationship. “Don’t
become too secluded, too intimate
too soon with someone you don’t
really know yet,” Wey said. “Take
it slower, get to know the person in
a safe environment with other peo-
ple, and do so with less booze and
drugs in your system. You’re going
to get a much better read, especial-
ly with a sober mind.”
What can you do to protect your-
self?
Lisa Andersen, a special consta-
ble with Fanshawe Security, rec-
ommended students take the Rape
Aggression Defence class offered
by Fanshawe. “It’s a great class. It
teaches females how to prepare for
those situations and to be a little bit
more alert of their surroundings …
They do learn physical defence
techniques, such as how to get out
of a chokehold or how to get out of
being pinned against a wall or the
ground.”
Fanshawe also has a student
auxiliary team that provides free
safe walk escorts anywhere on
campus, 24/7. If an incident does
occur, there are many services
available in London and on cam-
pus. At Fanshawe you can visit
Counselling Services in F2010.
You can call to make an appoint-
ment in advance or, if it’s urgent,
they do offer same-day appoint-
ments in the mornings.

A mentorship program on cam-
pus is getting students out of the
classroom and into the real world,
connecting them with profession-
als in their industry for some one-
on-one conversation and possibly
some on-the-job experience.
The Larry Myny Mentorship
Program matches Fanshawe stu-
dents with mentors in their indus-
try – who are often Fanshawe
grads themselves. The program is
currently looking for students who
are at least in their second year, as
well as industry professionals, to
sign up for the program at mentor-
ingfanshawe.com. Over 400
matches have been made between
students and professionals in the
six years the program has been
running.
Susie Mah, who is in her final
semester of Fanshawe’s Law Clerk
program, was a mentee in the pro-
gram last year. She said she had a
“wonderful” experience. “Being a
mature student, I knew I didn’t
have the time to do co-op. My plan
of attack always was to get good
marks, win an award, get involved
in the school and create a mini
resume. I knew I wouldn’t have the
benefit of having co-op experience
before I started looking for work
… This mentorship program was
really important because it was
another way to get ahead and put
something on my resume. I showed
that I was really serious about
starting my second career and that
I knew something about it.”
Mah was matched up with
Merilee Ollsen, a law clerk at the
Bruce H Blake Law Office in St.
Thomas. The pair met monthly
from September 2011 to April
2012. During the mentorship, Mah
got some real-world experience
through a mock interview with
Ollsen’s boss and by job-shadow-
ing Ollsen a number of times.
After a student signs up for the
program, Derek Collins-Newman,
the program’s coordinator, meets
separately with the mentor and the
mentee to discuss what they’re
looking to get out of the program.
Next, he meets with them together
to create a list of goals and objec-
tives for their time in the program.
This document outlines what the
student wants to learn and what the
mentor wants the student to learn,
and will guide the pair’s discus-
sions as they meet.
The document is very important,
said Collins-Newman. “There are
two kinds of mentorships: ones
that don’t go so well, and ones that
go well. The ones that don’t go so
well, people sit down at the table
and say, ‘What do you want to talk
about?’ And then, of course, they
don’t learn anything. On the other
hand, the way we do it measurably
is we sit down and say, ‘Here’s the
next meeting, here’s the topic,
come ready with questions for that
specific topic.’”
The mentors and mentees meet
twice a month for one-hour ses-
sions (or set up a schedule that
works for them). Collins-Newman
checks in with them every so often
to ensure they’re staying on track.
At the end of the program, he
meets with them a final time to
close the relationship, going
through the document to ensure all
objectives were met.
Though their mentor/mentee
relationship has been officially
“closed,” Mah and Ollsen found
they had so much in common
they’ve become friends outside the
program. “The chemistry between
Susie and I was just awesome –
she’s a friend of mine now,” said
Ollsen. “I’m looking forward to
nurturing our relationship.”
Ollsen added that she saw lots of
benefits in the program for a
mentee. “I think it helps them
develop some kind of confidence
that they’ve chosen the correct
career path for them. I find some
young students go from program to
program to program, kind of
searching out what they want to be
when they grow up. Maybe having
a mentor on their side, helping
them gain confidence and self-
esteem that they’ve chosen the
right career path for themselves
(can help), and because that person
maybe has worked a little bit in the
industry to give them some really
good insight as to what to expect in
the outside world, and not be so
scared.”
Another benefit is that students
who sign up for the program get
free tickets to a number of events
throughout the year – see the side-
bar for details.
To any student that may be con-
sidering joining the program, Mah
says, “Go ahead! Do it! It shows
that you’re really committed to
your program, that you … want to
get ahead, that you want to turn
over every rock to get every advan-
tage.”
“People who care will take
advantage of it; people who are
smart will take advantage of it,”
she added.
The Larry Myny Mentorship
Program debuted as a pilot project
called the Fanshawe College
Alumni Association Mentoring
Edge in September 2004, officially
launching under the Mentoring For
Success name in September 2005.
In 2011, the program gained the
sponsorship of Larry Myny, Vice
President and senior investment
advisor with CIBC Wood Gundy.
Though mentorships are not
guaranteed for all students,
Collins-Newman strives to make
as many matches as possible. For

gram and to sign up, check out

Starting your own business is a
daunting task. No matter how great
your idea is, there are so many
things to consider, from identifying
a target market to figuring out who
your competition will be to putting
together a business plan.
Biz Inc. is a student business
incubator for Fanshawe College
and Western University students,
and it can help you take your busi-
ness idea and turn it into a reality.
Whether you want to start your
own business or you’ve already
started one and are seeking some
advice, Daniel Ninclaus is the man
to know on campus. He’s the
Fanshawe Student Advisor for Biz
Inc., and you can find him in his
office in SUB 1035.
The help and services Biz Inc.
offers is “unique for every project,
really,” explained John Patton, the
project’s director. “We try to give
the benefit of some experience so
that (students) don’t have to repeat
all the mistakes that we’ve all
already made. We connect them up
with community mentors, with dif-
ferent professionals and profes-
sional services and we make sure
that they have a ready-made net-
work on the ground here ready to
help them make progress.”
The project started in May 2011
on Western’s campus, and came to
Fanshawe in November of that
year. It is funded by the Ontario
Ministry of Economic
Development and Innovation, the
London Economic Development
Corporation, the Fanshawe Student
Union, Fanshawe College and the
University Students’ Council at
The University of Western
Ontario.
Biz Inc. is currently working on
over 100 projects with students
from Fanshawe and Western.
While most are tech-based, Patton
said he and his team are always
open to new ideas, from fashion to
food and beyond.
On October 3, Biz Inc. will host
Start Me Up, a free event on cam-
pus that will feature student speak-
ers, food and a pop-up bar. The
event begins at 5:30 p.m. in the
Alumni Lounge in the SC building.
Anyone is welcome to attend, from
Fanshawe students and alumni to
staff and faculty to friends. “Learn
some information about what Biz
Inc. can do for you, hear from
some students who have been suc-
cessful in starting their own busi-
ness, hear about their stories, what
kept them going … and then some
networking at the end,” said
Samantha Laliberte, who does
marketing and communications for
Biz Inc.
“We have a growing network of
community mentors, and other
folks who are curious in watching
this project, so some of them will
probably show up as well,” added
Patton. “It’ll be a few from banks
here, there will be a few people
from different small businesses in
London that do some of the men-
toring for us.”
Start Me Up is a great introduc-
tion to Biz Inc. for students who
may be curious as to what it’s all
about, said Laliberte. “We encour-
age them to come to that, hear from
their peers, find out what their
classmates are up to – there’s a lot
of stuff going on at the campuses
that you wouldn’t realize that
maybe that person sitting beside
you in class actually has their own
business. That’s what we’re really
trying to show, that there are stu-
dents your age, in the same situa-
tion as you, for the most part, that
are doing this, and you can do it
too. And we’re here to help.”

It’s time for Fanshawe students
to get freaky, as Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday of this
week are Sexual Awareness Days.
Highlights include a talk from sex
expert Dr. Robin Milhausen, a sex-
themed casino night and the first
Sex Toy Bingo night of the school
year.
Kick off the week by seeing if
you can get lucky at the Condom
Casino on September 25. Everyone
gets three condoms (for free) to
trade in for poker chips. You can
test your luck with games such as
poker, blackjack and Crown and
Anchor. At the end, you trade in
your winning chips for raffle tick-
ets. There’s $500 in prizes to be
won. Everyone will leave with at
least one condom… the big players
will leave with more!
On September 26, learn every-
thing you need to know from a
renowned sex expert. If you’ve
heard or seen Sex with Sue, you
will love Dr. Robin Milhausen,
who is Sue Johanson’s protégé.
“We’re going to be covering
everything from STIs and contra-
ception to sexual pleasure and
orgasm,” said Milhausen. All of
your sex questions will be
answered as Milhausen promised
to make time for a Q and A session
after her interactive talk.
Milhausen’s sex talk is just fore-
play for what’s ahead. September
26 is time for one of Fanshawe’s
wildest and most popular events:
Sex Toy Bingo. It happens every
month, but the first game of the
year always starts with a bang.
There are plenty of sexy and fun
prizes to be won – perfect for spic-
ing up any relationship. There’s
always a lineup, so be sure to
arrive early (around 7 p.m.)
On September 27, watch out for
Condom Man, who will be walk-
ing around campus promoting safe
sex and handing out free condoms.
Sexual Awareness Days are spon-
sored by the Middlesex-London
Health Unit, who will have a booth
set up in Forwell Hall from
Tuesday to Thursday promoting
safe sex by handing out pamphlets
and free condoms.

CREDIT: CANADIAN BLOOD SERVICES
Canadian Blood Services will be on campus throughout the year to
encourage students to give blood.
We’ve all heard the saying that
you never know what you have
until it’s gone, but how many of us
really know what it means?
Unfortunately for too many
Canadians who need blood in
emergency situations, the mantra is
painfully true.
Fanshawe College is very fortu-
nate to host a number of Blood
Donor clinics on campus through-
out the year, and give students the
opportunity to literally make a dif-
ference in a person’s life.
Kristen Ungar is the community
development coordinator of the
Southern Ontario Canadian Blood
Services, and she said that people
don’t realize how important the
issue is. “Every minute of every
day, someone in Canada needs
blood. Much of the blood that is
transfused every year is done
under emergency or trauma situa-
tions,” she explained. “In Canada,
hundreds of thousands of people
each year receive blood compo-
nents or blood products following
accidents, during surgery or for
cancer treatments, burn therapy,
hemophilia and other blood-related
diseases … On average, 4.6 units
of blood are required per patient.”
And if you don’t already know,
giving blood is as easy as it is
important. The entire process takes
about an hour and the actual dona-
tion only takes minutes. You will
be screened before donating for
things like recent dental surgery or
a cold. All needles are sterile and
the blood they take – about a half a
litre – is quickly replaced by your
body, she said. “Donating blood –
for the most part – does not hurt
and involves only a small pinch.
This is true of the hemoglobin
check and the donation itself.”
If you’re interested in donating
blood for the first time, you’re
greatly appreciated. If you’re still
anxious about the experience,
that’s okay too, because there are a
number of things you can do to
ease the pressure.
First off, you should plan to
donate on a day when you are the
most relaxed and aren’t under a
time crunch. Your donation will go
much more smoothly if you’ve
eaten, had a good rest and are
hydrated. At the clinic, there will
also be staff and volunteers avail-
able for support if you need.
Almost everyone at Fanshawe
can attend the clinic. You have to
be at least 17 years old, weigh at
least 110 pounds, be in good health
and feel well when you donate, and
you must not have donated in the
past 56 days.
The incentive to giving blood?
It’s worth more than any tangible
gift: knowing that you are poten-
tially saving a fellow Canadian’s
life. Ungar reinforced the reality of
needy blood receivers, and said she
appreciates everyone who comes
out. “Many of us will know some-
one or even need blood ourselves
one day. We would all be in big
trouble without blood donors.”
There are tons of blood donor
events on campus throughout the
year, but the first Blood Clinic
event on September 24 is a bit dif-
ferent. The One Match event will
be held in Forwell Hall from 11
a.m. to 2 p.m. It’s a quick and con-
venient way to get your finger
pricked, find out your blood type
and book an appointment to donate
blood.

If you have an idea for a new
project or company but lack the
financial support, you’re not alone
– according to a survey, you’re
among the two-thirds of Canadians
who would like to start something
on their own but can’t begin the
project because of a lack of fund-

a contest designed to encourage
young entrepreneurs to pursue
their ideas by providing funding
and guidance. Now in its third

The contest conducted a survey
of Canadians aged 18 to 34 and
discovered that 86 per cent of
young adults define personal suc-
cess as doing something they are
passionate about. Almost three-
quarters (72 per cent) of these
young adults want to be their own
boss as opposed to working for
someone else.
The competition aims to encour-
age young Canadians to expand
their unique values and interests
into larger projects to evoke social
change. Start Something with
Alesse encourages any new project
idea, such as a new charity, com-
pany or social and cultural event.
Past submissions include projects
such as The Community Soccer
Project; Love Floats: Random Acts
of Kindness; and Reusable
Evening Gowns.
Last year’s winners created proj-
ects that reflected their education
and personal passions. Alyssa
Reid’s project addressed the global
issue of obesity and malnutrition
through Planet Pounds. “For those
who are interested in losing
weight, you raise funds through
sponsorship, and these funds are
pledged to a charity fighting world
malnutrition,” was the description
on the website.
Jesse Robson was able to extend
her project Centre for the Arts
Exchange, which brings seniors of
all ages and abilities together to
engage in physical, creative and
social activities. “I encourage other
young Canadians with a dream to
submit their idea for something
they want to start in order to help
make their dream a reality,” she
said.

TOURISM & HOSPITAITY
JENNY RAWLINS
Hi there. My name is Jenny
Rawlins and I’m campaigning to
be Fanshawe’s new Tourism and
Hospitality division rep. Before I
get into all the reasons of why
you should elect me, I figured you might want to
know some stuff about me. First of all, I’m a first
year student at Fanshawe, in the Culinary
Apprenticeship program, or (CLM7). I went to “Sir
Frederick Banting Secondary School” and I’ve lived
in London all my life (woo). If you’ve ever seen me
in the halls, the first thing you’ll notice is my height.
5’2 and a half, to be exact. As far as hobbies go, I
was on my high school Rugby team for two years. I
also play acoustic guitar and I sing. The main rea-
son I’m running to be the division rep is simple. I
want to get involved. All through high school, I did-
n’t do much. I wasn’t in many clubs, not on many
sports teams and I wasn’t on student council. I
regret that. I told myself that college is going to be
different and I’m determined to make sure it is. I’m
here to listen to you guys. The students. I want you
to feel like you can come up and talk to me if you’re
having issues and I’ll do my very best to help you
out. After all, we are all in the same boat and my
main goal is just to make it better for everyone.
Thank you for your consideration.
HUMAN SERVICES
JESSICA BROOK
Hello, my name is Jessica
Brook and I’m running for
Human Services division repre-
sentative. I am very outgoing
and love to laugh. You will find
me at every school function and probably around
residence too. I love to get to know people, I am
not shy. I curl and play piano, and I’m always open
to trying new things. I love to watch football, espe-
cially the New York Giants! I am currently taking
Early Childhood Education first year. I’m from a lit-
tle town called Harrow Ontario. Which is basically
as south as you can get in our province. I do have
my opinions on certain topics, and you will find that
I’m a very sarcastic person. But when I put my
mind to something, I will fight as hard as I can in
order to achieve that goal. If you have any con-
cerns feel free to come to me. And don’t forget,
duck the rest. Vote for Jess!
MARJORIE RIDLEY
Hello! My name is Marjorie

resent the School of Building

my first year at Fanshawe College, and I would
love to be involved with the Fanshawe Student
Union, to voice any opinions and concerns from
the students. Throughout high school I was part of
Student Council, helping to plan many major
events including orientation, fundraisers, semi-for-
mal and prom, as well as a large portion of the
advertising. I'm outgoing, have a good sense of
creative and a bit nerdy... If I am elected, you can
approach me at any time with any questions, con-
cerns or messages to the council. I would love to

VP ATHLETICS
JULIE ZOMAYA
“It's okay to be afraid, but don't let the fear keep you from doing what you're meant
to do (The Cutting Edge 3).” This is what life is about; seeking the opportunity to
show others what you stand for by making a positive difference, and taking it.
I’m a first year student, enrolled in the Law Clerk program. Being given this oppor-
tunity to join the team, even as a shy student with the “freshman year” worries and
nervousness, I felt the urge to strive for it.
My peers usually would describe me as someone who is very outgoing, friendly and a natural leader.
I have done various leadership-like activities throughout my life. I was a counselor at the YMCA day
camp and volunteered for LUSO Community Services. I also went from working as a student secre-
tary, to being the student crossing guard. Even taking part in a program called Girls LEAD at Brescia.
Being a professional figure skater and a swimmer, I feel as though I have an advantage to better
understand the necessities of the various athletic activities offered here. With regards to the students
living in residence, it is also important that they have a chance to give their input on ways we can
advance the housing opportunities and make living in residence greater than it already is.
I appreciate the chance to let students take on a position such as this, to represent and speak for
the students of this educational facility and I hope I have expressed the qualities of a potential mem-
ber of the student union here at Fanshawe
MATTHEW STEWART
Matthew Stewart is currently enrolled in his second year of the Graphic Design
program at Fanshawe. He is an Australian student that came out to Canada to
play volleyball for the college. Matthew lives and breathes Fanshawe as he not
only attends school and plays volleyball for the school but he also works exten-
sively with the athletics department. From his origins in Australia, Matthew’s life
has revolved around sport, with his uncle playing in the Australian soccer team, his brother playing
in the junior world cup and he, himself has played representative games for Australia in volleyball.
Matthew has brought a wealth of different ideas from a different country and also his sporting knowl-
edge gives him a great advantage at promoting and helping the general public of Fanshawe College
enjoy the facilities and events that are held on a weekly basis by the FSU and athletics department.
He was awarded a leadership award by the athletics department for his efforts and leadership that
was shown throughout the year. Matthew has extensive knowledge of the working in and around the
athletics department and as a varsity athlete also understands the benefits of fitness and would love
to share this knowledge by heading the role of Vice president of Athletics and residence life.
SARAH WADE
Hey Fanshawe!
My name is Sarah Wade and I am very excited to be running for the VP of Athletics
and Residence Life position for 2012-2013. I am from a small northern Ontario
town called Kapuskasing. I choose to attend Fanshawe College for their excellent
hands on learning programs, beautiful campus, and great location in southern
Ontario. I am proud to say that I am currently enrolled in my third year at Fanshawe College. I have
just begun the Business Marketing program offered here and I am looking forward to this year. I have
always had a passion for music; I am a singer songwriter as well as a guitar player. My influences
range from Alanis Morissette to The Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Some random facts about me are that
I am bilingual in French and English, I have a typed out Bucket List, and I am afraid of crossing roads.
One of my greatest accomplishments was organizing and performing for a Hope for Haiti Relief con-
cert at my high school. I have always enjoyed leading an active lifestyle whether it is through adven-
turing in the great outdoors, hitting up the gym, or playing sports. Therefore, hearing about this FSU
position caught my attention. I have only heard great things about Fanshawe College’s varsity sport
teams throughout my years here. I am very interested in learning more about Fanshawe’s Athletic
Department and becoming more involved with the college.
Your hopeful VP of Athletics and Residence Life, Sarah Wade

Volume 45 Issue No. 5 September 24, 2012 www.fsu.ca/interrobang/
One of the epithets hurled at the LGBT-
TQQI community is always that it is a
lifestyle choice. Nothing – I mean nothing –
could be contextually more ridiculous, and
in fact, it exposes the speaker as being either
non-supportive of humanity in general or
specifically prejudiced toward LGBT, for
whatever reason. When I am personally con-
fronted with such a statement, I will invari-
ably question the speaker as to his or her
meaning. I have yet to have anyone explain
it. In fact, they usually run from such a
request, hiding behind some doctrine that
actually has nothing to do with the subject,
or they will try to dismiss my question alto-
gether. For those who know me, this is prob-
ably the worst thing they can do.
The irony of this is really quite simple.
The LGB lifestyle is exactly the same as the
hetero-normative lifestyle. People eat, sleep,
work, go to school, socialize with friends,
raise families; all quite normal, really. But,
of course, the difference is in forming inti-
mate relationships. It is still all about love,
the only difference is that the love interest is
for one of the same biological sex. Love is
still love.
You will note that I specifically left out
transgender in the preceding statement. This
was quite intentional because there is a huge
difference here; also one of the reasons the
transgender community was “left behind” by
the LGB community in their march for
equality. The transgender community just
doesn’t fit the mold for hetero-normative
anything, let alone homosexuality. However,
that is discussion for a future article.
The point here is that people are people,
regardless of their gender or sexuality. Their
dreams and aspirations are no different.
Equally, the detractors of the LGBT commu-
nities are strongly committed to their own
core values and belief systems. They are
entitled to these, of course. However, that
entitlement does not extend to forcing those
values on a much larger society; one that
generally is actually quite tolerant if not
accepting.
For the Lesbian, Gay and Bi-sexual com-
munities, they can live relatively normal
lives without facing adversity every moment
of the day. I make this as a generalization
because there are certainly very poignant
exceptions – particularly in the workplace.
However, for the transgender community,
this is not the case. There actually is a
lifestyle choice. This is a position I hold as a
basic truth that does not sit well with many
in our community simply by the very con-
cept. The explanation is quite simple. The
choice is to live openly as a transgender or
not. For one who has not transitioned, mak-
ing that choice to live openly is to invite dis-
crimination every minute of every day. For
one who has passably transitioned, they can
choose to live “stealth” and make any dis-
closures as they deem necessary.
It is imperative to understand that transi-
tion is a process of change from one gender
(birth identified) to the opposite gender. It is
not a surgical procedure. This is a time of
flux for the person where physical appear-
ances (unless you are very lucky) can be
incongruous to the casual observer. It is a
time of both presentation and physical
change.
For an individual who chooses to not tran-
sition, this now becomes a choice of lifestyle
and has double the problems attached. First,
they must endure the prejudices of the het-
ero-normative population because their sta-
tus is not known and, secondly, they face the
same prejudices from the trans-radicals and
often the same, from many within the LGB
community. Double the pleasure and double
the fun... not! It is this situation that creates
a contextual lifestyle choice.
So what, exactly, are the impacts of mak-
ing this choice?
As I stated earlier, the emotional adversity
of living in both the hetero-normative world
as well as the transgender community can be
very draining from the position of prejudice.
While the need to transition is never
diminished the reasons for making this
choice to live a dual existence has its own
demands. The first and the most important
consideration is financial independence.
Transition is not cheap and that is over and
above the daily living expenses that every-
one has to endure. Sadly, most employers
will not hire openly transgender people.
Here are some education and employment
statistics from the Trans Pulse Survey E-
Bulletin July 2010 to prove the point.
- 36 per cent of Ontario’s transgender pop-
ulation has completed college or university.
A further 28 per cent have some college or
university education. This represents a total
of 64 per cent of the transgender population
having post-secondary education.
- 50 per cent of Ontario’s transgender pop-
ulation earns less than $15,000 per annum.
- 37 per cent were employed full time, 20
per cent were unemployed.
- Also worthy of note is that of all
employed transgender people, 45 per cent
had to present in their birth gender to be (or
remain) employed.
The next argument to be made is one of
societal acceptance and safety. It is not lost
upon the transgender population that there is
a target on everyone’s forehead. People shun
what they don’t understand. This lack of
understanding often manifests itself in fear,
resulting in open hostility, whether it is ver-
balized, implied through body language or in
physical violence. Granted, the incidences of
violence is generally attributed to a very
small portion of our society, it is none the
less very real and no less damaging than the
emotional wreckage caused through verbal
and covert abuse.

Sadly, “family and friends” are often a
part of the above statistics. Included in
“friends” are co-workers and persons in
authority within the workplace. The discrim-
ination is often a deterrent to coming out.
In conclusion, it can hardly be argued that
if there is a “Transgender Lifestyle,” it is one
of fear. One needs only to ask who has the
greater fear: society or the transgender pop-
ulation within society. The conclusions are
obvious both statistically and from personal
experiences of this writer.

Transgender lifestyle?
“The revolution starts in our homes, rela-
tionships and sexual practices. If we are
going to take on the many forms of violence
happening out in the community, then we
need to look at our own relationships and
the ones happening around us. In order to
make real change we need to recognize and
challenge the unhealthy and violent behav-
iours we witness and even participate in.
Never let the hand you hold, hold you
down.” ~Author Unknown (Source:
sacl.ca/youth/sexualviolence.htm)
“Sexual violence is a community issue.”
Take a few minutes to think about this state-
ment. Is it true? How many of you know
someone – a friend, roommate, classmate,
family member or neighbour – who has sur-
vived sexual or domestic violence at some
point in their lives? Perhaps it happened to
you. Sexual violence refers to any unwanted
act of a sexual nature, including sexual
assault, incest, child sexual abuse, marital or
acquaintance/date rape and sexual harass-
ment.
This is beyond being a “women’s issue,”
and desperately needs to be approached at a
community level, starting with each and
every one of us, within our circles of social
and familial connections and within our inti-
mate relationships. If you are a man, you
may have a sister, mother, daughter, girl-
friend or co-worker who has experienced
sexual violence in their lives. These experi-
ences can have a lasting impact on those
who survived this abuse, and everyone con-
nected to them.
One in seven boys under the age of 18 will
be sexually assaulted. While violence can
happen to them at the hands of women, most
often it is by other men. In recent years,
many of us have had to re-examine the myth
that this only happens to women. Sheldon
Kennedy, Theoren Fleury, the Pennsylvania
State University child sexual abuse scandal
and the Boy Scouts sexual abuse admissions
immediately come to mind.
In 2006, Statistics Canada reported that
four out of five female undergraduates on
Canadian campuses were victims of vio-
lence in a dating relationship. A national sur-
vey of campuses reported that 20.2 per cent
of female students experienced unwanted
sexual intercourse because they were over-
whelmed by pressure, 6.6 per cent because
they were threatened or physically forced,
and 13.6 per cent reported that, while intox-
icated, they experienced an attempt at
unwanted intercourse (1998, Fact Sheet,
Canadian Federation of Students).
Alarmingly, 11 per cent of men reported
sexually victimizing a woman dating partner
in the previous 12 months (Woman Abuse
on Campus: Results from the Canadian
National Survey, 1998).
More than 80 per cent of sexual assaults
that occur on university and college campus-
es are committed by someone the victim
knows, and 50 per cent occur on dates. Many
of these assaults happen during the first eight
weeks of classes (University of Alberta -
Sexual Assault and the Law in Canada).
Over half (70 per cent) of these assaults hap-
pen in residences; students there are often
young, away from home, without supervi-
sion for the first time, exposed to alcohol,
and becoming acquainted with many new
people. According to one residence manag-
er, approximately 68 per cent of new, first
year students in Fanshawe residences are
under 19 years of age during this first semes-
ter.

assault, myths and realities, a bystander

Volume 45 Issue No. 5 September 24, 2012 www.fsu.ca/interrobang/
So I’ve finally cooked a whole bunch of
Kraft Dinner these past few months.
Macaroni and cheese – it can’t get any bet-
ter, really. I’ve heard much about the influ-
ence that Kraft Dinner has had on Canadian
culture, and now. I’ve seen it first-hand.
My dad used to tell me stories of when he
was a bachelor, living in a single-bedroom
apartment in the city of Calcutta, India,
where I grew up. To this day, he recalls how
he survived off Maggi noodles and Coke.
Now, in case you are wondering, Maggi
noodles are pretty much the easiest thing for
teenagers and bachelors who aren’t fond of
cooking to actually cook. Kraft Dinner, I’ve
come to understand, is Canada’s Maggi noo-
dle. The boxed dinner (renamed “Kraft
Macaroni and Cheese” in the United States
not long after its debut in 1937) has always
retained the original name in Canada as well
as a cult-like following.
Considering how Canadians have a huge
love for all things Canadian, I’ve wondered
why there exists such a massive fondness for
a box of “cheesy sauce and noodles.” And
then I came across a quote by Canadian Rex
Martin who I believe is a pretty important
figure in Canada’s political scene. His quote
went something like this: “Kraft Dinner
revolves in that all-but-unobtainable orbit of
the Tim Hortons doughnut and the A&W
Teen Burger. It is one of that great trinity of
quick digestibles that have been enrolled as
genuine Canadian cultural icons.” That
quote got me thinking that if Canadians
mention KD in the same sentence as Tim
Hortons, then it must be pretty important.
We get Kraft Dinner in India. If I remem-
ber correctly, it was sold as “Macaroni and
Cheese,” exactly the same way they brand it
in the United States. Being a largely vegetar-
ian culture in that part of the world, you
could expect that something that is 100 per
cent vegetarian would sell like hotcakes, and
it does. But it doesn’t come close to the
demand for Maggi noodles and understand-
ably so.
I’ve just seen the new “KD distraction
noodle” commercial on TV, and it got me
thinking again. I should really stock up on
more Kraft Dinner, despite my love for
cooking. For if current Prime Minister
Stephen Harper does something similar to
what I love doing, then I assume I must be
doing something right. “I’ll never be able to
give my kids a billion-dollar company, but
Laureen and I are saving for their educa-
tion,” said the then-aspiring Conservative
leader in 2004. “And I have actually cooked
them Kraft Dinner – I like to add wieners.”
I’ve probably gone through close to a
dozen boxes of Kraft Dinner – all by myself,
I might add. And I’ve loved every minute of
it. Right from ripping open the box with a
youthful exuberance to carefully measuring
out the butter and milk so that I don’t ruin
the proportions. I’m addicted to the stuff,
probably just like you, and there is no turn-
ing back. KD for the win.
The Kraft
Dinner
craze
“I’ve made some of my best decisions
while running,” so said John, a friend of
mine. For him, running solo while most of
the rest of us still sleep brought clarity of
mind. When he found out that I like to jog,
he tried to persuade me to join him.
Unfortunately, my jogging routine was noth-
ing compared to his trillion-kilometre crack-
of-dawn runs and I had to humbly decline
his offer for his own good. There would
have been nothing but embarrassment for
him if anyone had ever found that I was his
running partner. Plus he would have been
doing a lot of waiting.
There are of course disadvantages to run-
ning, but the only one John ever mentioned
had to do with his timing. He ran so early it
would often still be dark. No doubt skunks
have white stripes for the very purpose of
being visible to runners at 5:20 a.m.
Nevertheless, John would occasionally
stumble upon one. Thus far he had not been
sprayed. But the possibility was always
there. It has been well documented in action
movies that people can outrun fireballs, but
skunk spray? I have my doubts.
I started jogging in university. I had never
been much of an athlete, so this was a seri-
ous challenge for me. Every morning, I’d
put on my running outfit and cover a kilo-
metre and half or so. Not that much, I admit,
but for me a considerable accomplishment.
Soon I had a running partner, Walter.
Walter was a little more ambitious. Six laps
every morning. What’s that, about two and a
half K? I wasn’t used to running at his clip,
but somehow I managed. Sort of. Well
enough to stagger off the track each morn-
ing.
And that’s when it all seemed worth it.
For the next 30 minutes or so I was high.
Over time, the high hasn’t really stayed
with me. People ask me, “Don’t you feel
good after a few laps?” I reply that my body
usually starts protesting after about 40 paces
and it doesn’t stop protesting till I stop jog-
ging.
Still, I do it, and if you are able to run but
have never gotten around to it, I recommend
it. Besides possibly giving you some tempo-
rary clarity of mind and a daily high with no
after-effects, there are other advantages. A
big one for me has been the elimination of
headaches. I used to get them with some fre-
quency. Since I started jogging again a few
years ago, they are far less frequent. They
are less intense and don’t last.
Also, running affects the rest of my day.
Somehow, giving my heart and lungs a
workout, not to mention giving exercise to a
hundred other systems in my body, seems to
be just the thing for feeling a little more alert
and energetic. Of course, coffee helps too.
Then there’s the economic angle. Jogging
or running is, in the words of many a gradu-
ate of the Richard Ivey School of Business at
Western University, “dirt cheap.” All you
need is a pair of running shoes. Well, in
most jurisdictions you also need a little more
clothing, but you get the picture. Not a lot of
capital outlay required. Besides that, the
world is your gym. Sidewalks and trails are
free. Oval tracks are there for the taking
behind high schools and around soccer fields
all across this great land.
And whenever you need to spice up your
routine, you can always throw in some
stretches, push-ups, and bends at no extra
charge. As a matter of fact, I’ve built up a
quite impressive (to me) routine of such
things and, well, the results speak for them-
selves, though modesty prevents me from
flaunting them.
Some will naturally ask, “Will jogging or
running improve my grades?” Believe it:
your grades will improve. Studies show it.
Actually, I don’t know if studies show it, but
they should. The physical exercise will
affect every physical organ in your body,
including the source of improved grades:
your brain. Besides, there’s feeling of suc-
cess that comes from doing a run each day.
And that can motivate you to find that same
feeling of success from staying on top of
your assignments.
Running. With any luck, your report card
will thank you.

I write about random things a lot.
I write a lot about random things.
For example, Ben Rispin of Saint
Alvia recently fired up a debate on
Facebook when he compared
Nickelback to Alice In Chains,
inciting lament, a little outrage and
a lot of YouTube clips. Albeit jok-
ing, Rispin isn’t wrong – the bands
have a lot in common, including
their arena rock pedigrees.
While people have mixed opin-
ions and swift reactions to
Nickelback, it seems all too often
that people forget the grind they
endured to earn their place on the
radio. Once entirely independent,
the band worked hard to surface on
the scene years before they
released their breakthrough album,
Silver Side Up, and if any band is
able to relate to benefitting from
breaking on to radio at an oppor-
tune time, surely it is Alice In
Chains.
Everyone knows that bands have
to work hard to make an impact on
listeners, beyond simply having a
great song or album to offer. And
you can always tell, too, the bands
that are willing to go the extra mile,
to sacrifice to see that connection
fostered; it’s the bands that put in
the effort that we’re the most
appreciative to connect with in
return.
Toronto’s Bravestation knows a
lot about hard work. Brothers
Derek and Devin Wilson (guitars
and vocals/bass, respectively),
Andrew Heppner (keys and elec-
tronics) and Jeremy Rossetti
(drums) have been working for a
long time toward the release of
Giants & Dreamers, their debut
full-length album.
A boldly artistic effort, the
album placed its musicians outside
of their comfort zones and created
a uniquely atmospheric pop sound,
so wonderfully reminiscent of retro
New Wave that it becomes easy to
be so distracted by the whole as to
miss the beauty in the details: the
timeless quality to the lyrics, the
organic percussive textures
throughout, the very vision of
Swayze dancing away injustice and
disharmony.
There is a strong visual element
to Giants & Dreamers, unmistak-
able movement in the way they’ve
crafted the album. Themselves
inspired, the band produced music
videos for two tracks on the album
– “Signs of the Civilized” and
“Western Thrills” – stepping into
important roles to deliver the
vision they pursued.
“For us, music is the main part of
the creation process, but as individ-
uals we all really enjoy being cre-
ative,” explained Derek Wilson,
taking time to speak to Interrobang
less than an hour before the band
opened Imagine Dragons’ sold-out
show in Toronto last week. Wilson
served as director for both of the
videos from Giants & Dreamers.
“It’s amazing when you have a
vehicle like music that can get you
into other fields,” he continued. “It
was a cool opportunity for me to
figure out, ‘How can we visually
represent this?’ I had never done
anything to do with film, but I
immersed myself in it. We all just
like to be creative, and the music is
a great means for that, it’s fun.”
The band returns to London on
September 27 at Call The Office,
bringing their signature sound and
terrific new album with them. A
word of warning to anyone looking
them up online, however; accord-
ing to Wilson, the band describing
themselves online as ‘tribal’ is
actually less a mission statement
than it is an homage.
“We got a review over in the
U.K. from a guy who said we
sounded like quirky, tribal pop
tunes,” Wilson explained, describ-
ing how the band added that
description to their Twitter info.
“We just thought it was different,
as opposed to saying, ‘We’re a
New Wave rock band,’ which is
just so boring. But the next thing
you know, four publications wrote
articles saying it and it just sort of
took off.”
Bravestation plays Call The
Office this week with Nightbox
and Jinja Safari, the show is 19-
plus and admission is $10. For

If you have heard of APK Live
(340 Wellington St.), then you
have no doubt heard of Half a Dino
and vice versa. If you haven’t, then
you should know that APK Live is
a venue that features tons of bands
and great entertainment, and Half a
Dino is a production company that
books live music shows at APK
Live. Matt Trocchi and the rest of
his Half a Dino team have been
hard at work with their new album,
a compilation of songs from local
artists and bands, due out
September 27. I got the chance to
do an interview with him to talk
about how the album came to be
and about his love for local talent:
On the new album, you feature
12 local artists. What about these
artists caught your eye?
“It’s all bands that we have
worked with for the last 12 months.
We have met them through playing
in shows and at Canadian music
events. We kind of decided that we
wanted to work with a group of
people that was pretty diverse.
There were a lot of other bands that
we could have included, but we
wanted a little bit of everything to
put in there. Every band that’s on
the album we’ve booked a show
with in the last year.”
You guys recently held a CD
release show here in London.
How was the CD received?
“Well that event was kind of like
a thank-you to everyone involved
with it and to give the people who
were involved with it a chance to
listen to it before the actual release
date. It went over well, though. I
think everyone was really proud of
the work we put together.
September 27 is the actual release
date and when we will actually
have it available for sale to the
public. We put it on Bandcamp on
September 17, just to give people a
chance to listen to it beforehand so
they will get excited for the show.”
Are you always looking for
local talent to work/play with?
“Yeah, definitely, we always try
to get local bands exposed and pair
them up with some of the bigger
bands coming through. There is
always a need for more popular
local bands. There is always room
for more and we are always on the
lookout.”

a Dino’s new album in advance at

MY 15 MINUTES

TAYLOR MARSHALL
Half a Dino set to release an album that’s completely fun
“Melodic grit” is how Klarka
Weinwurm describes her sound on
her latest album, Continental
Drag. The 11-song EP she
released on September 4 is filled
with an array of mellow folk-rock
melodies and driving guitar riffs,
and the young Canadian indie
artist is bringing that sound to The
Black Shire Pub on September 29.
Her songs are a combination of
steady rhythmic beats, guitar and
ukulele solos, and a strong but
slightly haunting voice can keep
you listening all day. The first sin-
gle off the album, “Pictures,” is
the perfect example of that combi-
nation, and it will make your head
bob to each guitar strum. The
clever lyrics of “Sasquatch,”
which she wrote on a train from
Jasper, Alberta, are accompanied
by a slower, mellower tempo that
is no less pleasing to the ear.
Listening to Continental Drag,
you would never guess Weinwurm
started learning guitar at the age of
15 on an old instrument that was
missing a few strings. She prac-
ticed by listening to Bob Dylan
songs.
“His were pretty simple songs,
in terms of the guitar chords, and a
good way to start to learn,” she
said. She also grew up listening to
the Beatles and Paul Simon.
A native of Brampton, Ontario,
Weinwurm moved to Nova Scotia
six years ago, and started to hone
her musical skills and style. She
credited Jon McKiel, another
Nova Scotian artist she has played
with before, for helping her dis-
cover the kind of music she want-
ed to make.
“I got a feel for the rock side,”
she said. It was a big progression
from the music she released on her
debut EP in 2009, titled EP.
“Those were simple, basic folk
songs. I just wanted to get some-
thing out there.”
She began recording
Continental Drag in February
2011, and since she had written the
songs over the past three to five
years, it took just a month to com-
plete the album. However, it was
the financial side of the business
that kept the album from being
officially released until now.
“It was financially frustrating,”
she said. “It was a learning
process, to learn the business side
of music.”
“But I do it because I love doing
it, otherwise I wouldn’t be doing it
at all ... You have to like what
you’re making.”
Don’t miss Weinwurm at The
Black Shire Pub (511 Talbot St.)
on September 29 as part of her
promotional tour through the
Maritimes and Eastern Canada.
You can also get her album,
Continental Drag, on iTunes or in
stores.

Klarka Weinwurm will be performing at The Black Shire Pub on September 29.
Scotiabank’s Nuit Blanche lives
up to its name and promises a
sleepless night filled with art
exhibits one could only dream of.
Originally started in Paris,
France, Nuit Blanche allows the
public to witness, and in some
cases, be a part of contemporary art
in ways that they may otherwise be
unable to experience it. It was first
brought to Toronto in 2006 and is
now in its sixth year.
It is a free event and has over
150 art exhibits ranging from inter-
active to static to unusual to even
exceptional pieces. Art exhibits by
local and international artists will
engulf all of downtown Toronto,
closing Front Street right up to
Bloor Street for the sole purpose of
exposing the masses to such an
artistic and unique experience.
The event starts at 7 p.m. on
September 29 and ends at sunrise,
making for an interesting and
unique spin to how students can
pull an all-nighter. Think fine arts
meets contemporary media and get
ready to be in awe.
John Young, the Fanshawe
Student Union’s operations man-
ager, is enthusiastic about organiz-
ing this annual trip from London to
Toronto to attend this event. “It is
important for students to experi-
ence different unique art experi-
ences,” he said, and this is the per-
fect opportunity to do so. Nuit
Blanche’s captivating and unsur-
passed mishmash of amateur and
professional art should not be
taken for granted by students.
Last year, an estimated one mil-
lion people gathered to bear wit-
ness to art pieces in a variety of
locations like schools, public parks
and even churches.
In Nuit Blanche 2008, Yoko
Ono set up her piece titled
“Imagine Peace” suspended four
stories high in the air, illuminated
from below, seemingly isolated,
until viewers approached it from a
different angle to be met with a
majestic row of Wish Trees. White
tags decorated each branch where
participants wrote a wish on a
piece of paper and attached it, cre-
ating a communal expression of
different dreams and wishes in the
form of what looked like, from
afar, beautiful white blossoms,
thus bringing to life her late hus-
band John Lennon’s quote: “A
dream you dream alone is only a
dream. A dream you dream togeth-
er is reality.”
Specially created for this sixth
annual event, the City of Toronto
has produced an exhibition of 14
projects around the area of
Toronto’s City Hall and Nathan
Phillips Square. Cleverly dubbed
“The Museum for the End of the
World,” this exhibit will capture
the audience with questions of dis-
aster and catharsis.
Check out Nuit Blanche with a
trip to Toronto organized by the
Fanshawe Student Union. Tickets
cost $15 for students ($17 for non-
students) and are sold at the Biz
Booth on campus – this includes
transportation to and from Toronto.
The bus leaves to head back home
to London at 2 a.m., so plan ahead
to make sure you squeeze in as
many exhibits as you can! Visit
scotiabanknuitblanche.ca for more
information on the event.

Baywatch: Hawaiian
Wedding (2003)
Sexual Awareness Days are
once again upon us here at
Fanshawe. That means that there is
going to be a lot of sexual content
in this publication – I’ve heard
rumours that the word ‘urethra’ is
actually going to be printed,
though I can’t confirm that. Now
some people might not want to
hear about this. Some people stand
in the darkness. Afraid to step into
the light. But for those who do
want to hear about a rather arous-
ing film, I’ll be ready, never you
fear, to share with you my analysis
of the sexiest film ever captured on
celluloid that doesn’t have to be
sold covered in a brown paper bag.
I am, of course, referring to
Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.
Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding
is a 2003 film that reunited many
of the key players from the mon-
strous hit TV show Baywatch.
David Hasselhoff, Pamela
Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth, Gena
Lee Nolin, Carmen Electra and the
Connoisseur’s personal favourite
Nicole Eggert all return to don the
red speedos that ushered an entire
generation of youngsters through
pubescence.
In one of the darkest moments in
television history, Hasselhoff’s
iconic character Mitch Buchannon
died in a boating accident. The
world mourned, and if I remember
correctly, Elton John re-recorded
“Candle in the Wind” in Mitch’s
honour.
But cheer up, world! It turns out
Mitch is alive and well, and had
actually just been suffering from
amnesia. He’s got himself a
fiancée, and is headed back to the
beach to visit some friends and tie
the knot. But Mitch’s friends and
co-workers are suspicious of his
new love’s motives. Things go
from bad to worse when Mitch’s
arch-nemesis Mason Sato returns
to put the kibosh not only on the
wedding, but on Mitch himself.
Another subplot involves the
opening of CJ’s Bar & Grill by one
of the series’ most popular charac-
ters, C.J. Parker (Pamela
Anderson). When one thinks of
sex, one often thinks of Pamela
Anderson. Hell, when one has sex,
one is often thinking of Pamela
Anderson. Canada’s greatest
export has done it all in show busi-
ness. From assisting Tim Allen
with his tools in Home
Improvement to assisting ex-hus-
band Tommy Lee with his tool in
an infamous sex tape, Pamela has
always handled herself with the
utmost grace and dignity.
Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding
is a fitting conclusion to one of the
most important series in television
history. So in honour of Sexual
Awareness Days here at Fanshawe,
be sure to yank it… off the shelf of
your local DVD retailer.
Resident Evil:
Retribution (2012)
The supernatural craze has been
captivating the North American
movie-going public for some time
now; everything from vampires to
werewolves to aliens have been
plaguing screens across the coun-
try. Well, get ready for some more
zombie outbreak action in yet
another installment of the once-
popular Resident Evil franchise,
Retribution.
Resident Evil: Retribution picks
up right where the previous four
films left off: Alice is still fighting
the Umbrella Corporation, which
is still trying to capture Alice and
make more and more clones of her
in an attempt to stop the zombie-
creating t-Virus that they them-
selves created. Basically you’ve
got more Alice, more zombies and
more ass-kicking.
In Retribution, Alice has been
kidnapped by the Umbrella
Corporation and awakens deep
within one of their underground
safe havens. Her escape plans take
her deeper and deeper underground
and in turn reveal more and more
titillating details about her mysteri-
ous past with the Corporation.
Once she is finally able to make
her escape and breach the surface,
Alice goes back on the hunt to
track down those responsible for
creating and unleashing the t-Virus
in a continued attempt to save
humanity. Joined once again by Jill
and Rain, though in unexpected
forms, and creating new alliances
with those looking to take down
Umbrella, Alice resumes her
never-ending mission.
The cast of Resident Evil:
Retribution is filled with familiar
faces and a few newcomers as
well. Stepping once more into her
lead role as Alice is Milla
Jovovich, who is admittedly a top-
class zombie killer. Jovovich
proves that she still has what it
takes to fight, maim and kill the
undead with just as much vigour as
she has in the previous four films.
Also reprising her role of zom-
bie-killer is Michelle Rodriguez as
Rain, though she is in a somewhat
different incarnation this time
around. Rodriguez is her typical
bad-girl self, even when she is
playing good. Reprising her role of
Jill is Sienna Guillory, who fans
will know from Apocalypse and
Afterlife. Once again, Guillory
plays a tough girl just trying to kill
the zombies.
Joining the franchise in this
installment is young Aryana
Engineer, whose character Becky
has somewhat of a Ripley/Newt
relationship going on with Alice.
Cute and charming, Engineer
proves to lighten up and energize
this otherwise tired cast.
The trouble with the Resident
Evil franchise now is that they
keep beating at the same dead
horse. No new developments have
really occurred in the story thus far
and things are more or less where
they were when the series began.
Zombies are still ravaging the earth
and Alice and Umbrella are still
locked in a desperate battle with
one another.
If you are interested in seeing
the same things you’ve already
seen four times, then by all means,
rush out to see Retribution, but if
you’re tired of the same old story,
then this one is better skipped.

The cast of Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding poses for a promotional picture.
I remember a time when every
new movie that came out in the-
atres was exactly that: a new
movie. Sure, there was a tasteful
homage every now and then to one
of the classics or perhaps a parody
of one of the not-so-classics. Still,
each and every movie that came
out was unique. It had a new story
to tell, and a new way to tell it.
Sadly, that seems to no longer be
the case.
In the past few years,
Hollywood has been inundating
the movie-going public with
everything from international
remakes to TV shows being turned
into movies to remakes of
American movies, some of which
aren’t more than a few years old.
Someone, at some point, has to
question what the purpose of this
is. Is this a profit-driven move on
the part of the studios, or is it sim-
ply that there is no more creativity
left in Hollywood?
Let’s take for example last
year’s The Girl with the Dragon
Tattoo. Originally this film was
released in Sweden under its prop-
er title Män som hatar kvinnor in
2009, and though it wasn’t
released through any major theatre
chains in Canada (such as
Cineplex Odeon), it had a wide
release in nearly every independ-
ent theatre in North America.
Granted, it wasn’t in English, but
the subtitles were clear and easy to
read. An easily available, easily
digestible movie going experience.
So why then did the bigwigs at
the studios decide that since the
books had achieved massive popu-
larity and the films had proved
profitable in Sweden did they
decide they needed to create an
English-language version for
themselves? The thing that I find
terribly confusing about the
Dragon Tattoo remake is that
given the fact it was created to be
more relatable and homespun for
American audiences, why is it still
set in Sweden and filled with
Swedish actors – with the glaring
exception, of course, of the leads?
It is simply mind-boggling.
I don’t know about the rest of
you, but I don’t want to pay
umpteen dollars for a ticket to a
movie that I’ve already seen. Why
would I bother when I could
instead stay in the comfort of my
own home or, better yet, go out and
experience the world, and get even
more entertainment value?
I have heard that there have been
so many remakes in recent years
because the film industry is strug-
gling and they want to go with
what they know works. But at
some point I think this plan is
going to backfire on the studios. At
some point, the audience is going
to wise up and come to the realiza-
tion that they are being fed regur-
gitated flicks.
I know I am anxiously waiting
for that day to come...

Shia LaBeouf has transformed
himself from child TV star to major
movie star to… porn star? LaBeouf
landed a role in director Lars von
Trier’s upcoming drama
Nymphomaniac, where he will strip
down and perform some “genuine”
sex scenes. He even admitted to
sending sex tapes of him and his
girlfriend (Karolyn Pho) to von
Trier to land the role!
For those of you who remember
LaBeouf as Louis Stevens from
Disney’s hit TV show Even
Stevens, this may be difficult to
imagine. But according to Susan
Knabe, assistant professor in the
Faculty of Media Studies and the
Faculty of Women’s Studies at
Western University, this could be
the image he is trying to break. “He
comes out of the Disney franchise,
so you know there’s the kind of
innocence and purity that gets asso-
ciated with Disney … I think that if
you want to actually reinvent your-
self and cut the ties with the good
boy you might have once been,
doing a film like this will actually
allow you to do that.”
He’s not the only Disney star
who has tried to break the innocent
and wholesome stereotype, but
Knabe suggested it’s his gender
that makes this case particularly
interesting. “We can just look at
Miley Cyrus, Disney’s Hannah
Montana – now all of a sudden
she’s super sexed up. It’s less com-
mon that we turn to look at male
child stars who then end up doing
something risqué.”
LaBeouf has continuously
worked on his “big boy” image
since leaving the Disney series in
2003. He’s had big roles in films
such as Wall Street: Money Never
Sleeps, Disturbia and Indiana
Jones and the Kingdom of the
Crystal Skull, and he really made a
name for himself after landing the
starring role in the Transformers
trilogy. His leading roles have
given him the opportunity for some
steamy scenes with actresses such
as Megan Fox, Sarah Roemer and
Carey Mulligan, but nothing quite
like what we might witness in
Nymphomaniac.
Von Trier has been known to
experiment with “real sex” scenes
and erotic images. His company
Zentropa was the first mainstream
film company to produce hardcore
pornographic films. What’s inter-
esting is that many of his porn films
focus on female desire and female
sexuality, which is what
Nymphomaniac is centred around.
The film will be released in “hard-
core” and “softcore” versions. The
plot focuses on female protagonist
Charlotte Gainsbourg as Jo, a self-
diagnosed nymphomaniac who
recounts her life. “The narrative, it
seems, is about her sexual desire
and her escapades throughout her
life, so I’m guessing probably what
will happen is that he (LaBeouf)
will be one vignette in her story,”
Knabe said. Although discovering
female sexuality isn’t an uncom-
mon narrative, von Trier has prom-
ised to do something unique with
the storyline. “It’s less about
whether Shia LaBeouf ... has an
orgasm on screen,” Knabe pointed
out, “but rather how von Trier is
actually helping to reimagine
female sexuality in a way that could
be more progressive.” So this could
be more than a media ploy.
LaBeouf does identify himself as
a “method” actor, using techniques
that have been highly criticized by
the public. It was reported that he
drank moonshine on the set of
Lawless and took acid in The
Necessary Death of Charlie
Countryman to help portray his
characters more accurately. There
is something about “realness” that
contributes to the overall effect a
film has on its viewers, but where
do you cross the line?
The fact that LaBeouf has a girl-
friend has placed his decision under
much scrutiny. But, besides the
possibility of damaging his rela-
tionship, Knabe suggested that
LaBeouf could complete these
scenes without ruining his reputa-
tion. “I think that one of the differ-
ences that happens between men
and women is that he will not nec-
essarily have to answer to this for
the rest of his life, whereas I think
if he were a woman who was doing
this, that would always be men-
tioned. I think he can do this and
walk away with it.”

Get Stuffed, the creation of Robin
Esrock, former journalist and host
of Word Travels, and executive
director Heather Hawthorn-Doyle.
“Essentially, the show is a hybrid
of food porn and off-the-wall,
unique and bizarre international
events, from greased pig catching
in Montreal to Redneck Games in
Atlanta and lumberjack ‘King
Trapper’ games in Manitoba,” Rice
explained. The four hosts – Rice,
Erin Simms, Kaylin Miles and
Ryan ‘6-Pack’ Lapadat – face off
in these challenges, and the loser
must gorge on a ‘punishment meal’
at a local restaurant. “These usual-
ly consist of a week’s worth of
grub, or a meal that a ladies’ ball
hockey team would have trouble
conquering,” he added.
Before it became his full-time
job to race ostriches in Arizona and
attend the Montana Testicle
Festival, Rice graduated from the
two-year Business Marketing pro-
gram at Fanshawe in 2007. After
that, he headed to Western
University, majoring in sociology
and minoring in psychology, grad-
uating in 2010.
Originally, when Rice heard that
the Get Stuffed team was hiring, he
interviewed to be a production
assistant. “They asked me to go
home, make a video and submit it.
From there, I was asked to audition
after my video, along with five oth-
ers, was chosen out of several hun-
dred submissions.”
He said the skills he learned at
Fanshawe definitely helped him
land the hosting job. “The skill set
that correlates directly with mar-
keting definitely had a strong influ-
ence in helping me represent
myself when I was initially trying
to become part of the Stuffed
team.”
The show premiered in early
July, and has been enthralling and
grossing out viewers ever since.
As for his favourite challenge so
far? “(My) favourite would have to
be either the Warrior Dash down
south… Or the Redneck Games…
Or... you have to see them all to
understand why I’m having such a
tough time responding to this one,”
he laughed.
As much as he enjoyed the
Warrior Dash challenge, which
took place in Mississippi, he added
that it was “grueling” – one of the
toughest competitions he’s had to
face, along with Frozen Dead Guy
days in Colorado, which “was a bit
of a nut-buster, being in the icy
mountains accompanied by the
even icier wind chill and frozen
events.”
But Rice was definitely sure of
his favourite food so far. “The
Crab Pot in Seattle (was) absolute-
ly bonkers - almost $100 worth of
seafood, three types of crab,
shrimp, sausage, corn… Just talk-
ing about it has got me all fired
up.”
The first season has 13 episodes,
and prospects for season two are
showing “great promise,” Rice
said. “With wonderful people out
there tuning in more and more
often, it should be a no-brainer,
especially because the show con-
tent is hilarious and an absolute
riot!” So far, the creative team has
come up with a long list of compe-
titions for season two, including
the Beer Pong world champi-
onships and a Wife Carrying com-
petition.
Check out Get Stuffed on
Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on OLN.

Getting educated about sexually transmitted diseases isn’t the sexiest
article there is to read in this issue, but hey, getting them isn’t sexy either.
We all know about the importance of proper protection, but against what? There are tons of sexually
transmitted infections (STIs) out there, so knowing which ones are which is pretty important.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could get information on everything you need to know about STIs in
one convenient place?

often thought of as a trio of neces-
sary evils. In fact, many students
simply throw a Hail Mary pass
when seeking employment, rather
than fearlessly tackling this trio.
I’m guessing that since the first
day of classes, your professors
have trumpeted the importance of
getting your cover letters and
resumes in order, as well as the
importance of preparing for job
interviews. Rather than offer a
complete list of dos and don’ts for
finding that perfect job, allow me
to offer some stories from my
experiences with career advance-
ment – consider them part of that
good, bad and ugly I wrote about in
an earlier column.
As a self-employed freelance
communications professional, I
have years of experience in both
seeking jobs and in hiring employ-
ees. Here are a few tales from the
t rut h-i s-st ranger-t han-fi ct i on
department.
Shortly upon my graduation
from Fanshawe College in the
early 1980s, I spotted an advertise-
ment in The London Free Press for
an executive assistant in the sports
management field. This was during
an era when most want ads
appeared in our daily newspaper,
rather than online. I polished my
resume and my faux leather shoes
(complete with tassels), penned
what I thought was a clever cover
letter, put on a skinny leather tie
(cut me some slack, this was the
early ’80s) and marched confident-
ly into that executive’s office,
ready to take on the world.
What I wasn’t prepared for was
that prospective employer’s com-
bative attitude. As I sat down to
chat, I was met with a spiel some-
thing like this: “Why are you here
wasting my time? People are
applying for jobs with an extraor-
dinary amount of experience that
you don’t have. (She waived a pile
of resumes in my face). I don’t
have a job for you, sorry.” And that
was the end of that job interview.
The lesson learned from this
experience: expect the unexpected
when entering the job market. A
well-written, concise cover letter
can help you get a job interview. A
solid, well-written resume outlin-
ing valuable education and job
skills will help your chances of
gaining employment. And a confi-
dent, professional persona will see
you do well during the interview
process. But, to quote Forrest
Gump, “Life is like a box of choco-
lates. You never know what you’re
gonna get.”
Last month, my own editorial
assistant took a four-month leave
of absence, so I advertised for a
temporary replacement and
received numerous applications
via email. As I am with my own
students here at Fanshawe College,
I was awestruck by many of their
qualifications and job experience.
However, the e-mail introductions
and cover letters were another
story. I actually had one applicant
address me as “Dude.” I’m not
operating a surf board shop, so I
passed on that one.
I’m sure my own students are
sick of me saying each class, “If
you are a strong writer, you will
always have a job,” but it’s true.
For many, writing is a lost art –
like cover letters and resumes, a
necessary evil. A well-written
cover letter will open the door to a
myriad of opportunities. It’s the
written equivalent of a strong
handshake and smile. First impres-
sions are imperative in today’s job
market.
No matter how well prepared
you are for a job interview, timing
and a little luck also go a long way
in the hiring process. Not too long
ago, I sat down with an employer
who wished to hire a contract
worker for a position starting in
less than one week. After a brief
information session, I was handed
a contract and hired on the spot.
Although I entered the meeting
confident (not cocky), I was still
surprised at how quickly I was
offered the job. Perhaps it was
because I had long ago discarded
that skinny leather tie and ugly
faux leather shoes.
There’s nothing ugly about
being prepared for a job interview.
The most important elements to
finding a job that’s right up your
alley are being prepared for the
expected and unexpected; creating
a thorough, well-structured
resume; writing a concise, profes-
sional cover letter; and walking
into a job interview with a smile,
firm handshake and confident atti-
tude.
Just make sure you don’t address
your prospective employer as
“dude.”

THE REAL WORLD
Jeffrey Reed

One of the reasons some women
don’t like to be too adventurous
with their makeup when they are
going out is because they are afraid
of it turning into a disaster halfway
through their night. If dark, smokey
eyes, eyelashes and deep lip
colours aren’t applied properly,
they will tend to smudge easily and
be noticeably disastrous. However,
there is no need to worry as there
are tons of tips and techniques you
can follow to make sure your
evening look stays perfect for your
sexy evening out.
The best way to ensure your
beautiful complexion lasts through
the night is by using a face primer.
There are so many face primers in
the market now it is hard to choose
which one is best. Try to avoid any
primers with a whole bunch of
fancy colours, glitter, etc. because
they tend to get clumpy and ruin
the application of your foundation.
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer and
Laura Mercier’s Foundation primer
are the best, but if funds are an
issue, using a good moisturizer will
work as a replacement. Lastly,
make sure you set your foundation
with a loose powder (avoid com-
pact powders as they contain gums
and binders that make makeup look
caked on).
As for the eyes, there are a few
options you can use, either alone or
together. Eye primers are of course
the best way to keep the eyeshadow
from flaking. Lise Watier’s and
Cover FX’s eye primers seem to
work the best as they have no
colour and can make any eyeshad-
ow look flawless. If you don’t have
a primer, you can also use a water-
proof cream shadow as a base for
your powder eyeshadows so that
you don’t sweat them off by danc-
ing... or whatever else you are
doing on your sexy night out.
Lastly, make sure you use a water-
proof mascara and eyeliner so you
don’t have to worry about them
smudging.
To create your perfect, long-last-
ing lip, start with a lip stain (Revlon
Just Bitten works really well) and
then line and fill your lips with a
matching lip liner. The lip liner will
help prevent the lipstick from
bleeding and will make it last
longer so you need fewer touch-
ups. Then apply a long-lasting lip-
stick (all brands will now claim
they are long-lasting), some of the
best being Smashbox’s Be
Legendary and Lancôme’s Rouge
in Love. Avoid putting on too
much lip gloss as this will make the
lipstick slippery and will have a
greater tendency to smudge.
After you finish applying all
your makeup, I would recommend
powdering your face one last time
to get rid of any shine. Now to hold
your whole look together, mist
your face with a makeup fixant
(these are a bit harder to find) by
brands such as Clarins and Lise
Watier.
If you follow all or some of these
tips, you can wear a beautiful
evening makeup look for your sexy
night out, without having to worry
about it becoming a disaster.
Sweat, tears and spilt beverages do
not stand a chance against your
long-lasting makeup.
A well-written resume and cover
letter are often critical to a candi-
date’s success in today’s employ-
ment market. So, to ensure that the
advice given to students and grad-
uates is as current as possible, a
resume and cover letter question-
naire was sent in July 2011 to
approximately 300 employers.
Employers were asked to respond
to a variety of questions geared
specifically to the content of
resumes and covering letters.
Responses were received from 95
employers and they represent a
broad range of business and indus-
try.
RESUMES
Should resumes be two pages
in length?
Eighty per cent of employers
prefer a two-page resume. Many
employers commented that
resumes longer than two pages
may not be read. For each job you
apply to, make sure you tailor your
resume to that job by including
your relevant education, skills and
work experience.
Should resumes follow a
chronological format?
Nearly all (98 per cent) pre-
ferred a reverse chronological for-
mat. List your most recent educa-
tion and experience first as the
most recent information tends to
be the most relevant and it also
makes your resume easier to fol-
low. Be sure to include the specif-
ic time frame for each experience,
don’t just list “2010 – 2011,”
include the months, e.g. “May
2010 – June 2011.”
Should resumes include career
objectives?
Eighty per cent of the respon-
dents indicated a preference for
career objectives in some manner.
Often the career objective is the
first thing an employer reads, so
make sure it relates to the position
applied to. State what skills you
bring to the job and what you can
do for the employer, not just what
you want in a position with them.
Should skills be included?
Most employers (94 per cent)
responded in favour of candidates
identifying skills on their resume.
Many stressed the importance of
listing skills that are known to be a
requirement for the position
applied to. List specific examples
of where and how you acquired
your skills. Remember transferable
skills are often subjective, so back
them up in terms of work, school
or volunteer experience. Include a
‘Summary’ or ‘Highlights’ section
on the top of your resume to pro-
vide the reader with a snapshot of
your related skills, education and
achievements. For each position
you apply to, make sure you
review your skills list and refine it
to match the requirements for each
job.
Should resumes include inter-
ests, extracurricular activities or
community involvement?
Seventy-seven per cent respond-
ed in favour of including interests
and activities, with many com-
ments indicating the need to be
brief. This section often provides
information not apparent from
your work history and amplifies
character traits such as initiative,
team and leadership skills and may
demonstrate to an employer how
committed you are to achieving
goals. Volunteer positions and
career-related interests or activities
seem to be of most interest to
employers.
Should resumes include refer-
ences?
Sixty per cent of employers
advised NOT to include references
when applying for a job. Fewer
and fewer employers are checking
references prior to an interview.
Generally, references are pursued
only if a candidate shows promise
during the interview and if the
employer is considering an offer of
employment. As a courtesy to the
employer, simply state that “refer-
ences are available upon request.”
If you are invited to an inter-
view, you are expected to provide
complete reference information
(names, company information and
current phone numbers) and make
sure to advise your references that
they will be contacted. Work- or
school-related references are pre-
ferred, so reconsider listing your
next-door neighbour or other per-
sonal references.
General comments on
resumes:
Quite clearly the message from
employers is that they expect job
seekers to itemize their relevant
skills and abilities and to target
their resumes specifically for each
job applied to. Many employers
emphasized that candidates need to
pay attention to detail as too many
resumes are received with
spelling/grammatical errors or
incorrect information on them.
Remember, your resume should be
neat, clear, concise and easy to
read in 30 seconds. Proofread care-
fully as your resume and cover let-
ter are examples of your written
communication skills.
COVER LETTERS
Is a cover letter important in
the application process?
Seventy-seven per cent of
employers responded in favour of
candidates including a cover letter.
This is an opportunity to provide
additional information on why you
are right for the position and how
your experience and education
relates to the job you are seeking.
General comments on the
cover letter:
Cover letters should be one page
in length and clearly identify what
position you are seeking.
Employers are looking for candi-
dates who give a little extra effort,
so personally address your cover
letter and explain how your skills
and experience meet the require-
ments of the position. A good
cover letter should demonstrate
your professionalism and provide
insight into your language and
writing skills. Employers also look
for correct spelling and grammar,
so pay attention to detail and
proofread carefully. And remem-
ber, one typo is one too many.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Aries enters a period of self-
examination. Feelings and reac-
tions in one part of your life don’t
necessarily apply to another.
Beware of going overboard on
comfort foods.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
The follower turns into the
leader. The only voices that you
heed are those of ambition and
adventure. The only companions
that you need are those who will
gladly tag along.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Gemini is ready for a different
scheme. Eagerness shades to impa-
tience. You want to convert all of
this talk into action, but others are
still having their conversation.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Everyone is welcome. Other
Signs may complain, but Cancer is
overjoyed at a fresh start. Your
instincts are reliable. Boundaries
are observed but not enforced. The
honour system is in effect.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
If you’re relying on the force of
your personality, think again. Turn
down your volume and open your
ears. Things are not what they
seem. Your unconscious mind is
tuned in to what’s happening.
Virgo (August 23 - Sept. 22)
Praise and acclaim come from
both outside and inside your sup-
port group. All at once, you’re
doing everything right. Water
moves Earth with irresistible force.
Good advice finally pays off.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Libra strives for universal
agreement, but these days the uni-
verse has other ideas. Avert your
eyes from someone else’s disaster.
In the end, you can only look out
for your own interests.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Assume that you’ll win, and
maybe everyone will be convinced
by your certainty. Broaden your
ambitions while keeping emotion-
ally in touch. Your vigor sustains
you through anything that happens.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Good taste is more than a matter
of appetite. Dig deep in case the
very best is at the very bottom of
the pile. Your explorations may
not result in success, but you’ll
feel better for trying.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Hesitation is a waste of the per-
fect opportunity. Run in a straight
line without looking to either side.
You might be simplifying the pic-
ture, but that’s the only way to get
things done right now.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You’re dealing with a thin,
flickering attention span. If you
have internal discomfort, treat
yourself better immediately. If
you’d rather be elsewhere, just
make your excuses and go there.
Pisces (Feb. 18 - March 20)
Great things happen around
water. Whether you’re out sailing
or just toasting life with your sports
bottle, that favourite element is a
source of cosmic refreshment.
Here’s looking at you, Pisces!

Volume 45 Issue No. 5 September 24, 2012 www.fsu.ca/interrobang/
The Canadian Soccer League is
a minor league. It’s Canada’s only
‘professional’ league, even though
it’s mostly semi-pro. Clubs are
nearly family businesses (includ-
ing our own London City) and are
rarely given any time in the media,
until now. Recently, CBC and
Metro ran an interesting piece into
match fixing in the small-time
league. One would ask, why fix the
results to bet on such a small
league? The answer is, as it always
is, money.
The match reporter Ben Rycroft
focused his work on a game that
featured the Trois-Rivieres Attak
and Toronto Croatia in 2009. A
bribe of $20,000 was given to four
players on the team, yet possibly
hundreds of thousands of dollars
could have been wagered on that
game on major gambling websites,
almost all of which have CSL
games as wageable ventures.
The CSL has a lot of problems
that are almost always visible. The
clubs are run by volunteers, own-
ers are sometimes non-existent and
the players are constantly being
turned over. Some up-and-coming
Canadian stars are playing in this
league, yet this isn’t a very good
atmosphere for these players to
play in, including here in London.
In fact, transcripts from an inter-
view Rycroft did with an anony-
mous player who had supposedly
been approached with a bribe to
throw the game show the player
was also approached during a
game in London. London City has
been marked by a few questionable
events this season. Players have
been in the door almost as fast as
they’re out, the manager left
halfway through the season (after
going to Europe and then telling
the club he wasn’t coming back)
and the new owner based in
Hamilton hasn’t been around the
club or games.
All the while the financing of the
clubs has gone into question as
well. It was leaked in a wiretap that
the men who worked the match
fixing in the CSL in 2009 were
looking to buy a team. London
City is the newest team to be given
to new owners.
The problem with the CSL is
that no one cares, really. Canadian
soccer has blossomed in the past
decade or so, but very little to
almost none of that growth is being
felt by the many small clubs that
dot the landscape. Obviously
Major League Soccer teams are
doing well, but those are only three
major markets. This brings me to
my next point: the players are suf-
fering the most in this situation.
With such little structure and
action like this regularly occurring,
how is Canada supposed to devel-
op talent outside of the three acad-
emy systems? After all, only three
proper player academies cannot
properly serve the 30 million peo-
ple in this country and the thou-
sands of soccer players that take
the sport seriously.
Hopefully this can be a start to
creating a proper league that can
produce proper players. The trans-
parency this report brings could
very easily clean up the league and
the game in this country.

Three stages of
workout stress
General adaptation syndrome is
a nice way of describing how your
body responds to the stress of a
training exercise. As you stress
your body, it goes through three
different stages: the alarm stage,
the resistance stage and the
exhaustion stage.
When a new stress is placed on
your body, such as that from start-
ing a training regimen for the first
time, your body will naturally go
through an alarm stage. You’ll
experience high levels of soreness
accompanied by decreased levels
of performance. If you’re thinking
to yourself, “I know what he is
talking about – it’s that brand-new
pain that hurts like a bitch a day or
two after I work out,” then you’re
absolutely right. It is unfortunately
also one of the biggest reasons
why newcomers completely aban-
don training in the early going that
we see far too often.
However, for those of you who
stick to it and fight through the ini-
tial soreness, congratulations, you
are now entering the resistance
stage! This is where your body
adapts neuromuscularly and bio-
chemically to the stress it has been
put under and becomes better pre-
pared to deal with that particular
stress. If another lightbulb went off
in your head again and you’re
thinking, “Is he talking about when
my body isn’t nearly as sore two
weeks after starting my training
program?” then you’re right again.
I find this to be one of the most
neglected bits that trainers fail to
educate their clients about. They
don’t take the time to explain this
resistance phase and newcomers
develop these concerns that the ini-
tial soreness from hell will be a
continuous plague over their bod-
ies. I don’t think anyone would
want to train hard if that were the
case. None of us would be able to
get out of our beds without agoniz-
ing pain for as long as we hit the
gym! So if you only take one thing
away from this article, make sure
it’s this piece of underrated but
very important information about
the body’s resistance capability.
Lastly, if you expose yourself to
TOO much stress for TOO long a
period, your body will enter the
exhaustion stage. Your adaptations
that you worked so hard for will
begin to plateau and actually
reverse. This can result from either
a lack of training variety or too
much training stress. If you’re
thinking about those idiots that
spend over two hours a day, six to
seven days a week hitting the
weights like it’s their job, then you
now have a mental picture of what
NOT to do.
Like anything else in life, we
typically go through stages or steps
in order to achieve a certain goal.
Physical activity, exercise and
training are no exceptions to the
rule. So remember, you will be
ALARMED, but be consistent and
your body will RESIST. And
whatever you do, do not over-train
or you will EXHAUST yourself –
sometimes less is more.

Hitting the gym too hard can lead to exhaustion.
Holy Mackinaw! Joe Bowen, the
voice of the Toronto Maple Leafs,
will be at Fanshawe on September
26 to give a talk entitled The
Importance of Mentors. Bowen has
broadcasted over 2,000 Leafs
games in over 30 years.
According to his Sportsnet bio,
his career highlights other than the
Leafs games include blow-by-
blow of Muhammad Ali’s last
fight, three Toronto Rock World
Championship Games and the
Trevor Berbick vs. Larry Holmes
World Title Fight. On a personal
note, Bowen is the father of four
boys and currently lives in
Unionville.
He has supported several chari-
ties by being the emcee at hun-
dreds of banquets and golf tourna-
ments. He was the emcee at all of
the Meet the Leafs luncheons,
Have a Heart Dinners and Maple
Leaf Casino nights.
This talk supports the Larry
Myny Mentorship Program at
Fanshawe, which helps to match
students with mentors in the com-
munity who relate to their field of
study. The event is free (seating is
limited) and will take place from
12 to 1 p.m. in the Alumni Lecture
Theatre (D1060).

Match fixing in Canada
Two of the most exciting players
to watch in the MLB are Bryce
Harper, a 19-year-old from Las
Vegas and Mike Trout, a 21-year-
old from Vineland, New Jersey.
These are my top two candidates
for the 2012 National and
American rookie of the year, but
who is number one in the MLB?
The argument:
Mike Trout, the centre fielder
for the Los Angeles Angels, had
some experience last year playing
in 39 games towards the end of the
season. This year, Trout has domi-
nated the American League in bat-
ting average (.329), runs (116),
stolen bases (45) and on base per-
centage (.957). More impressive is
that Trout began the 2012 season
with the Salt Lake Bees of the
Class AAA Pacific Coast League
before getting the call to join the
Angels on April 28.
Like Trout, Washington
Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper
got his opportunity by being called
up from the minors on April 27.
All eyes were on the youngster.
Why? He is the most touted
prospect in MLB history since
Stephen Strasburg, a starting pitch-
er with the Nationals. Only 19
years of age and he fits right in
with the rest of his team. How
many 19-year-olds can say that?
His numbers are not overpower-
ing, considering he has only played
123 games this year, but his 19
homeruns, 50 RBIs and .263 bat-
ting average is outstanding for any
player in the MLB, not just a
teenager.
Who’s better?
Trout has my vote. Trout has
been a leader in the stats column
and will receive some votes for
American League most valuable
player and should run away with
the rookie of the year award. While
Harper’s Nationals will be in the
playoffs, Trout’s Angels have been
a disappointment as they were
expected to challenge for a playoff
spot, but Trout has been the team’s
saving grace, helping the team
recover from an atrocious start.
Who has the most potential?
Harper – he’s a professional on
and off the field, talented, a utility
player who I think can play any
position. An All-Star at the age of
19, Harper will see a lot more All-
Star games by the end of his base-
ball career.
This is really a toss-up, because
you never really know for sure
what the future holds, for all we
know an injury could significantly
affect these two young prospects
from reaching their full potential.
All in all, both players will be
nominees for the rookie of the year
in their respected league; we
should enjoy the show that these
two young prospects put on for us
over the next decade, I know I will.

With the NHL currently on lock-
out, the fate of the season is up in
the air. But, we know the London
Knights are set for the Ontario
Hockey League season to be
played at Budweiser Gardens. The
expectations for the OHL champs
are high as they should be.
Last year the London Knights
overachieved; the fact that they
walked away with the best record
in the OHL and were ultimately
one goal away from winning the
Memorial Cup is more than I could
have ever predicted, especially
with a coaching change midway
through the season. I labeled them
as being one year away from
regaining the title as Memorial
Cup champs or the number-one
team in the Canadian Hockey
League. Going into this year’s sea-
son, I stand by that comment by
saying that this is their year.
Their defence will be the best
the franchise has ever seen, better
than their “untouchable” 2005 ros-
ter. Olli Maatta, Scott Harrington,
Tommy Hughes, Kevin Raine and
Tyler Ferry will all be returning.
Nikita Zadorov from Russia and
Paxton Leroux out of
Peterborough will add a big pres-
ence to the blue line. I’m a firm
believer that defence wins champi-
onships, and that’s where this team
thrives.
With two strong goaltenders,
who will see the ice more this sea-
son: Kevin Bailie or Jake
Patterson? Bailie would be my
number-one pick to start the sea-
son, because he spent last year
playing for the Oshawa Generals, a
team that wasn’t solid defensively.
He is used to seeing a lot of pucks
throughout the game and it will be
interesting to see how he plays
with a strong defence in front of
him. Patterson, on the other hand,
split the season with the Knights
and the London Nationals (Jr.); he
was solid with the Knights, but he
posted mediocre numbers with the
Nationals, going 0-3, with a 6.50
goals against average and a .804
save percentage allowing 18 goals
in four games. Throughout his six
games with the Knights, he went
2-2, allowing seven goals against
with a 1.85 goals against average
and a 0.929 save percentage. Not
too bad, but my money is on Bailie
to be the regular starter for
London.
How is London going to do
when it comes to getting the puck
into the net? Well, they are going
to have to look at the kids of yes-
terday to lead this season; Max
Domi, Bo Horvat, Josh Anderson
and Chris Tierney. A couple of
fresh faces on the offence will
make the third and fourth line very
interesting to watch – we’ll see if
they can handle this hockey crazy
city. When it comes to grit on the
team, there isn’t much, just those
Rupert twins.
Concluding, I would like to
make note that the last NHL lock-
out (2005) was very generous to
the London Knights: OHL
Championship, Memorial Cup and
set multiple records. Hockey fans
don’t look forward to the lockout,
although history says the London
Knights do.
London is the
early favourite

If you’re in the market for a car
that has all the luxuries and com-
fort of a full-size sedan, but at
about half the price (and a bit
smaller in size), then the new
Lexus ES350 is the car for you.
This new-for-2013 model has all
the features you could possibly
wish for, including exquisite
leather seats – the front seats are
not only heated, but ventilated too.
Then you have power-operated
everything, even the steering col-
umn which tilts and telescopes
(optional). There is also an option
to get the navigation system, which
then comes with a reversing cam-
era (which is actually part of the
Premium Package). You also get a
panoramic sunroof (on the top-
spec Technology Package model),
to enjoy what’s left of our sunshine
this time of the year.
The good news doesn’t end
there. This car has a smooth-as-silk
six-speed automatic gearbox,
which sends the power to the front
wheels. The power is also quite
impressive. A new 3.5-litre V6
engine is fitted that produces 268
hp, which is quite enough, actual-
ly. So make no mistake, this car
can carry its weight and yours
along quite easily.
So, all looks good – you should
rush out and buy one… if you have
about $50,000 to spend on a car.
But that’s not the end of the story.
You see, while this car is very
impressive with its features, the
joy of driving is missing. In my
view, this car is a bit too soft.
There is no feeling of you being
connected to the road.
While some of my older friends
would love how quiet it is on the
highway (if you turn off the stereo
and climate control at 115 km/h,
you hear nothing but some faint
sound of the wind – you don’t even
hear the engine at all), I rather pre-
fer getting the sensation that I am
moving. This car made me feel as
if my entire body was under anes-
thetic, but that might be exactly
what some people might be look-
ing for.
I don’t like the handling, either.
The soft nature of the car spoils the
fun. This car rolls through corners,
and on every off-ramp, I had to
make far too many steering correc-
tions to keep it on my intended
line. If you want a car to take
through some back roads just for
the fun of it, this one won’t do.
So, the car is not fun to drive,
but that’s okay, not everyone
wants a fun to drive car. Lexus
does know its customer base well
and has thus engineered a car to
keep its existing clientele, but per-
haps it won’t win over many new
ones with this new sixth generation
ES model.
To please their current cus-
tomers, it has features like the key-
less entry and ignition, which
means the key can stay in your
pocket, and as you walk up to the
car, it unlocks; step inside, put
your foot on the brake, press the
Engine Start button and it fires up.
Surely these kinds of features will
appeal to drivers who like being
pampered.
They will also love its new inte-
rior, which does have a much
classier look than the model it
replaces.
It will also appeal to those who
like buying hybrids, because for
the first time, the ES model will be
offered as a hybrid: the ES300h.
If all this sounds good to you,
you can go to your local Lexus
dealer now and get your hands on
the new ES. Prices for the ES350
start at $39,500, while pricing for
the hybrid ES300h starts at
$43,900.
Personally, I’d rather spend this
sort of money on the IS series from
Lexus, which offers similar luxu-
ries with some driving appeal.
