Masthead

Carine doesn’t like bios, but here goes. Carine enjoyed writing feature articles so much that she wants to make a career out of it. Carine is always asking questions and enjoys meeting students who are passionate enough to look for answers. Carine hates the phrase "print is dead”.

How too much noise can harm your health

It turns out, though, that noise, whether you’re asleep or awake, can really hurt your heart and your brain.

It can feel like all we do is type

Type, type, type. For many of us, around this time of year, it can feel like all we do is type. We type term papers and test notes and emails. We then go and type Facebook statuses complaining about all the term papers and tests and emails.

I’m tellin’ y’all it’s sabotage

You have six hours—six hours until your 30% paper is due. You stare at your screen. You only have two paragraphs down. You tentatively tap...

Discussion versus lecture in class

Many of us dread it: having to speak in class. Whether you’re naturally shy or just plain don’t like the sound of your voice, whether you’re studying humanities or even some social sciences, it’s going to happen to you.

Letter to the Editor: Not so much East vs. West

Several weeks ago, the discussion in one of my classes turned to the idea of resisting “Orientalism”. There’s a long and complex discourse around the concept of Orientalism that I won’t go into here.

Life in the new Panopticon

You’ve seen them before. Those pictures online. The girl holds a camera out in front of her. She pouts her lips, makes sure her cleavage is exposed, and snaps a picture of herself.

Weird test and exam rituals

How to stay sane on residence

You did the cheers, you danced on tables, you drank too much. Good stuff. Now it’s time to start university and deal with your roommates.

Mr. Mossad’s Mistress

I hold my blue ballpoint pen centimetres away from a rectangular notepad. The word “Oracle” blazes in large, red, angular letters from the top...
