How to get to Brock from downtown St Catherines?
I'm relatively new to this city and don't exactly know how the transit system works here (still getting used to fact that there is no Skytrain :). I live close to the the Union Bus Terminal, and I was wondering if anyone know what bus I should take to get to brock from there? How often does the bus come in the afternoon? I tried to look it up on www.yourbus.com, but I'm afraid I'm spoilered by Translink and find the webiste a bit confusing.

Spring courses
Hi there,

It seems like this community isn't very active, but I hope someone here can give me some inputs about spring term courses.

I'm a new non-degree student currently enrolled in one French course that starts in May. However, I noticed that the class duration is FOUR hours (5-9 pm twice a week). I've never taken a course that lasts that long and don't konw if it's the best time format for me (especially for a language course). I was wondering if anyone here has taken a course like that and what they thought about it. I can always wait until September to take the same course, but I'd love to hear what others think first.

POLI 2P47
hey,

i've never taken a POLI course before, but POLI 2P47, rights across borders doesn't seem to have a prerequisite and works well with my schedule. i've taken a number of courses that deal with politics/ngo's/etc in some way, so i at least have a bit of background in politics.

has anyone taken POLI 2P47? what was it like?
maybe someone  could recommend a POLI course to me that was pretty interesting and doesn't fall on a monday or wednesday of the fall semester?

thanks!

Are your views differ than your parents?
Hi guys,

My name is Jennifer, and I am a casting associate at MTV.  Right now we are casting for an upcoming episode of the award-winning series True Life.  For this episode, we are looking for people who are at odds with their parents for one reason or another.  The topics we are focusing on are students who are living a more Americanized lifestyle their traditional parents don't understand, students who are practicing a religion that their parents don't support, or  students who are dating someone their parents don’t approve of.  We are also always interested in hearing other stories about what students and their parents don't see eye to eye on.  I  would really appreciate if you could pass it along to anyone else you may know.

If you could have people email their situations to Parents@mtvnmix.com with their name, age, location, phone number, and recent photo of themselves I would really appreciate it.

Thanks, and feel free to call me with any question
Jennifer

Since its initial episode in 1998, MTV's award-winning True Life documentary series has told remarkable real-life stories of young people and the unusual subcultures they inhabit. Whether documenting the lives of gay marriage activists, individuals dealing with obesity, or teens in high school--the True Life series tells its stories solely from the varied voices and points-of-view of its characters--putting the series in the unique position of reflecting the state of youth culture at any given moment.

Does anyone here take spring/summer classes? I know the list is not out for a couple more weeks and that it's always different each year, but does anyone know if there is usually a math or a computer science course that runs through that semester?

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone else heard anything about Brock planning on getting rid of the seminar component for all it's programs as of next year?  I was waiting to talk to a prof today and heard a couple of TAs talking about it.   Am I completely out of the loop or is this something new going on?

Thanks

The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.

The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution

Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.

*While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff, and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the U.S.

Free Evolution and Science dvds. Thanks to a multi-billion dollar medical institute!
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute offers free dvds which contain lectures on various topics, from AIDS, to evolution.  Here are some of them:

  • Evolution: Fossils, Genes, and Mousetraps
  • Evolution: Constant Change and Common Threads
  • The Science of Fat
  • The Double Life of RNA
  • AIDS: The Evolution of an Epidemic
The first is a lecture by Kenneth Miller, and it is a basic introduction to evolution lecture.  He also criticizes Michael Behe's irreducibly complex arguments, and even shows a few clips from the Colbert Report.  He also argues for the compatability of religion and science.  The second evolution dvd has four lectures (each an hour long) going over the basics of evolution, and explaining the mechanisms of it.  It also includes a 70 minute discussion on whether evolution and science is compatable with religion.  I haven't viewed the other ones yet.  The production quality is fantastic, and the sound and picture quality are perfect. 

And they're completely free (no shipping charge as well).  I suggest ordering x3 of these so that you can hand some out to relatives, random people, etc.  

Here's the link to the HHMI site where you can order these. 

And help spread the link around!  

If you're ordering from outside of North America:
