The Spectacle

November 30th was the second leg between the Montreal Impact and Toronto FC. The game was being played at BMO Field in Toronto, as Montreal hosted the first match of the series. Many broadcasters and insiders were predicting a very tight, but open scoring match. And boy, were they spot on. Not only was history bound to be created after the final whistle of the game, as the first Canadian team to reach the MLS final would be revealed, but we also got a hell of a goal fest spectacle….

Puppy Pals – Pet Therapy

Puppy therapy consists of bringing dogs to patients in the hospital – or nursing home residents, or students in schools, etc. – in order to reduce stress, fear, and anxiety. This method has worked successfully and is practiced worldwide, with a number of advantages. Puppy therapy is known to have both an emotional and physical impact on patients. A 2002 study found that pets who visit hospitals provide stress relief, normalization of hospital milieu, generation of positive rapport and feelings, and the increase of satisfaction and morale for patients as…

A Review of Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival Entertainment 

A Review of Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival

                 Denis Villeneuve’s new science-fiction film, Arrival, starring Amy Adams, would be best described as an experience. The plot builds onto itself, appearing clumsy and strange as the story begins, alternating between a slow buildup with frequent repetitions, and plot advancements which seem to happen too fast. The flow is murky and shifting, and yet the film takes hold in a very powerful way at a critical time, and from then, is unrelenting. The film’s form, in this sense, is intimately connected to its subject matter: Linguistics.   The…

Underused Study Areas on Campus

The library (for those of us who’ve seen it before) used to provide not only books but a large number of space for students to be able to work and study in peace. Due to the renovations taking place at the moment, the school has opened up many rooms available to us students. However, it seems that some still don’t know where to go on campus for a positive learning space. Don’t fret, here’s a list of the underused rooms available to students: B-512 Chemistry Resource Room – Help Available…

Mes enfants n’ont pas peur du noir – Review

Looking for an out-of-the-ordinary theatre-going experience? Contemporary theatre may be just the thing for you! At Centre du Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui, the cramped space and unusual stage placement (diagonally across the square room) may raise a few eyebrows, but Jean-Denis Beaudoin’s Mes enfants n’ont pas peur du noir captivates the audience right from the start. Filled with light-hearted tragedy, this production has the audience alternating between sitting on the edge of their seats and erupting with laughter. The play is based on the director’s story, but the references to Hansel and…

Nintendo Switch: After the Hype-Storm Thoughts

It has been nearly three weeks since the announcement of the Nintendo Switch, and now that the initial shock has been tamed, it may be safer to make observations. When the console was revealed, there were two kinds of people; the ones that whole-heartedly supported the changes and the ones that instantly shunned the idea down for various reasons. The majority of people, myself included, seem to have fallen into the former. Times have changed since then, however, and now taking a step back is necessary. The console appears to…

Vanier College Blood Drive

On September 27th and 28th, an Héma-Québec blood drive was held at Vanier College. Though the moral implications of the ban implemented by the Canadian government on donations given by men who have sex with men have certainly created controversy (see Colin Golding’s article “If you Prick us, do we not Bleed?”), there is no doubt that individuals who have the ability to give blood, should. Each donation helps three people on average, and while awaiting the government to modify their discriminatory policy, donating generously if you aren’t affected by…
