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...

Northern Historical Conference

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

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”. Our theme was chosen because it allows for scholars of different backgrounds to come together and share in a discourse on the past that incorporates numerous disciplinary approaches.

Brolesque

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

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....

Voters, Start Thinking! – 2017 BC Election

Tierney Watkinson |  Team Member Ever since he-who-must-not-be-named was sworn in as President of the USA, we have been watching, transfixed in our horror as a narcissist sporting the hairstyle of a stained, dead albino rat on his head does whatever his whimsical, narrow-minded self desires to a country that made the mistake of not taking him seriously until it was too late. Let’s not forget that British Columbia’s own elections are coming up. I feel that it is important to note that there are, in fact, a great number of registered political parties in BC. Elections BC lists the following parties (as of February 1, 2017) as viable: B.C. Vision, BC First Party, BC Marijuana Party, BC NDP, BC Progressive Party, BC Refederation Party, British Columbia Action Party, British Columbia Conservative Party, British Columbia Excalibur Party, British Columbia...

The Tragedy of Kraft Dinner

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

James Eckstein  |  Contributor Kraft Dinner has been ranked as one of the classic student meals of all time. Not only is it tasty and affordable, but more importantly can be prepared relatively quickly without burning down the entire house. It would be extremely difficult to find a university or college student who has never eaten Kraft Dinner at least once in their life. On average, a Canadian family will eat approximately 3.2 boxes of Kraft Dinner every year. That’s a total of almost 90 million boxes sold every year in Canada alone. No matter how many boxes of Kraft Dinner you eat per year (or day in some cases), the history of how Kraft Dinner came to be is wrapped in tragedy, going all the way back to the early 1900’s. The main element that makes Kraft Dinner...
