Posted by on Feb 18, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Hannah Rizun | Publisher Vancouver, BC – As the second half began, both commentators agreed, “These girls came to play.” ​ It was a historical game for UNBC’s women’s basketball team: this was the first time for the team to be in the Canada West playoffs, the second team in the school’s history. The women faced off against the UBC Thunderbirds in Vancouver this afternoon. The team battled against the UBC Thunderbirds, a perennial powerhouse. After a strong game, UNBC Timberwolves women’s basketball took a 74-61 loss; the Timberwolves must now win the next two games against the Thunderbirds to keep their season alive in the best-of-three series. The Thunderbirds got off to a quick start in the first frame and led 15-6 at the first media timeout with just over three minutes to play. The team from Vancouver...

Darin Kamsteeg President |  NHSS We are proud to invite you to the inaugural Northern Historical Conference. We feel this event will be an excellent showcase of the academic excellence the North has to offer, as well as provide an opportunity to network with scholars from across Western Canada. This is a primarily undergraduate conference, but we both allow and encourage graduate students, professionals, and community members to attend and present. We welcome talks and posters related to any geographic region or time period, as long as it can be linked to the idea of “Expression”.

Review: Super Bowl LI

Posted by on Feb 13, 2017 in Sports | 0 comments

Colin Slark | Editor in Chief I don’t watch many NFL games, so I thought I would give this year’s game a shot. One of the biggest problems for me as an extremely casual fan is that I constantly forget the ins and outs of the game and as well as the arcane rituals that surround the viewing experience itself. Like I do with every big game – the Stanley Cup Finals, the World Series, the Michael Jordan Intergalactic Basketball Championship Derby, and many more – I went to the Sports Bar. Of course, the Sports Bar is a massive wrought iron bar that bisects the opening of a large cave with the official logos of all the major sports leagues, as well as that of the NBA, engraved onto its surface. Once you have purified your body by...

Brolesque

Sam Wall | News Editor The Foxxie Follies, led by Sasparilla Foxx, have been working hard to create a loyal following in Prince George, holding events such as their Christmas Spectacular and Night of Intrigue. But the event this past Saturday was different. The burlesque troupe featured “Brolesque” in their “Chip n’ Tassles” performance, featuring mostly male dancers. “Mostly male,” as in many of the performers were our usual favorites from the Foxxie Follies dressed in drag, spiced up with other new performers – for some it was their first time! The Artspace was buzzing, as several people were lined up hours before the show for the chance to get one of the last dozen tickets available to the sold out event. It’s safe to say that the Foxxie Follies are bringing new energy to Prince George, especially downtown....

5 Fictional Dictators That Would be Better Presidents Than Trump

Posted by on Feb 13, 2017 in Opinions and Humour | 0 comments

The beginning of the Trump administration has been a maelstrom of chaos. Protests have been happening across the United States as people stand up against a variety of decisions Trump has made. Trump’s Executive Order curtailing immigration from Muslim-majority countries has dramatically affected the lives of refugees and even legal US residents and citizens, and has also spawned a large number of lawsuits against the government. Trump has been inflaming tensions between the US and other countries and frequently takes to Twitter to pursue petty grudges. All this and more has happened, and it has lead to Trump having the lowest approval rating for a new President since that sort of thing started to be monitored. The terms “fascist” and “Nazi” are thrown around a lot in reference to Trump, his administration, his advisors, and supporters, but this article...
