By Esther TungTensions ran high at the SFSS forum meeting last week, as departmental representatives gathered to reach a consensus on the hot-button issues surrounding the SFSS, including the lockout and SFPIRG eviction.Forum is one of the two main representative bodies at the Simon Fraser Student Society, composed of representatives from active departmental student unions and constituency groups such as Out On Campus.

By Lucas WesthaverTheres something to be said for a band who knows exactly how silly they are, what the audience expects, and how to play to their strengths (and limitations!). By Giovanni ZenoneMicrosoft begins its Summer of Arcade 2011 event with one of the best downloadable games of the year. By David ProctorThe lockout status quo appears to be mostly intact as locked out members of CUPE 3338 Unit 5 have reached an outside settlement with the Simon Fraser Student Society board of directors, putting an end to the unions challenge that the board is engaging in illegal scabbing under the labour code.The board of directors had been performing regular staff duties such as office work and distribution of funds to clubs and departmental student unions ever since the lockout began on July 10. By Esther TungThe Graduate Student Societys council voted unanimously last week to officially denounce the Simon Fraser Student Society for their lockout of the staff members of CUPE 3338 Unit 5.The undergraduate student societys board of directors locked out its workers after a unanimous vote on July 8, asserting that their compensation package has become a financial burden that threatens the financial solvency of the organization. Seems either no one is talking about louis daguerre at this moment on GOOGLE-PLUS or the GOOGLE-PLUS service is congested. Valentines Day came and went and my only plans involved discount chocolate and a solo TV dinner, and it was even worse when all my friends went and got boyfriends this past April some bullshit about romance blossoming in the spring.
The rule is being implemented after two alcohol-related deaths last year, including one student who fell out of a sixth-floor window. Cancer Agency have made a groundbreaking discovery using genome sequencing that could potentially lead to specially targeted diagnostics and treatments of lymphoma. Were having practices with lots of attention to detail, and were going to smaller local competitions as part of our preparation.SFUs pipe band was created in the mid-60s, very shortly after the university opened its doors. Reading last weeks Peak, you would think that SFPIRG had been placed on a death march, about to be extinguished forever. If that was the case, you would think that the people that hold these values wouldnt have freely chosen to give them a majority government.Canada is a horrendously flawed society, but its a Western liberal democracy, and freedom and prosperity is the result.
After two years of contract negotiations, the Simon Fraser Student Society (SFSS) board of directors gave lockout notice to their 12 permanent employees and approximately five student and temporary staff employed through the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), local 3338.
More and more people are spending large portions of their days online, doing everything from reading, writing, and playing games, to browsing photos, shopping, and chatting with friends.
Hellboy has more creativity in its little finger than Batman has in his whole deus ex machina oh, sorry, I meant utility belt. He had just left NBC for good (his home for over 20 years) on as bad a note as possible and not long after was on tour. At first glance Bastion seems like a painterly dungeon crawler; this belies its complex action-RPG design.
I thought 2011 would feature my summer of love, but its already August, and nothing has come to fruition.I want to experience this university story staple, the summer fling. Students will be able to swipe their student IDs and obtain a new U-Pass once a month.The new U-Pass will no longer have a photo, but students will have to write their names on the backs of the cards to validate them.
Ninety-two per cent of incoming students will be under the legal drinking age.Kwantlen prof calls for a ban of the Pride ParadeMacleans reports that an ex-SFU professor and Liberal candidate who ran in the Surrey-North riding has taken his distaste for the Pride Parade to the Internet, tweeting that the parade was vulgar, to say the least and should be banned. A team of 50 scientists, including several researchers from SFU, have released a study in Nature detailing the use of genome and transcriptome sequencing, a process involving the reading of several three-billion base pair human genome sequences, that allowed them to uncover a pattern of mutated genes found in lymphoma tumors. At the time, the university distributed piping scholarships to students who happened to have piping skills, but the pipe band in its current form didnt come along until 1981.At that time, the university decided that they were becoming a world-class university, and the way the piping was going was just a little bit less than that, Lee recalled. Adjusting for errors, they found that a fiscal transfer from Canadian-born people to immigrants [is] $450 per immigrant instead of the $6,501 specified in the Fraser Institute report.Additionally, in a section investigating the taxes paid by immigrants who entered Canada between 1970 and 2004, the study shows that this immigrant population receive an average of $345 less in benefits than do all Canadian residents. This is not true.SFPIRG is an independent society under the Society Act of British Columbia. The staff would be barred from returning to work if the union could not make a satisfactory cost-saving proposal within the following 72 hours. As personal branding guru Dan Schawbel mentions in his post 5 Reasons Why Your Online Presence Will Replace Your Resume in 10 Years on theForbesblog, many of us also use the Internet to search for jobs. Well, the Internet is a series of tubes that is primarily used to bring people all over the world together to share information, tell everyone what they had for lunch, and most importantly make jokes.
It defines everything from religious narratives to legal code and has been a defining concept of society for thousands of years. His response is a confused, What do you mean?Conan OBrien Cant Stopis a very literal description of Conan; hes a man on a mission, a man who lives for and thrives on (and seems to need) an audience. While unified in its slick production values, hook-based chanty style, and (of course) lyrical content, Back Through Time runs away on itself after the introductory track, the symptom of a band having far too much fun with pirate-puns and getting too drunk to worry about backing up their time-traveling framework with anything more substantial and thats completely okay.
Fare checks require the holder of the pass to present student IDs along with the U-Pass.Unlike the current system, lost or damaged U-Passes will not be replaced. Grady and Grubels paper recommend reforming Canadas immigration selection process by having market forces determine the composition of the countrys immigrant population with peripheral management by government, with the ultimate result of a net reduction of the flow of immigrants into the country.Pendakur asserted in a statement that immigrants offer a number of fiscal benefits to the countries they immigrate to, noting that they are typically much harder to quantify [than fiscal transfers], but nonetheless important to our economic life, such as the effects of immigrants on international trade, the labour market performance of Canadian residents, and the housing market.
Why do arranged marriages statistically last longer than non-arranged marriages?These questions seem puzzling, unless you examine them through the lens of economics. They were formed 30 years ago in an anachronistic political climate that does not reflect the realities of SFU today. It may be worse elsewhere, but Canada and the West cannot even decide what the goals of our criminal justice institutions should be.Why do we have jails? After garnering 15 per cent of the vote in 2009, the Danish Peoples Party, Scandinavias most influential and aggressive anti-immigration party, is the countrys fourth biggest political party, and commands considerable policy influence by virtue of their role in the liberal-conservative ruling coalition. While online job hunting certainly has its advantages searching one website that funnels job ads into one source, instead of browsing dozens of newspapers creating and depending on an online presence to enhance your odds for success poses some concerns.Weve become entirely obsessed with texting, instant messaging, blogging, and of course social media, all of which has created a sense of being constantly plugged in not only to our electronic devices, but to a never-ending information loop we continually feel the need to be a part of. Nobodys parents die, nobody gets their girlfriend killed, and nobody is a metaphor for gay people.
Back Through Time is perfectly comfortable as an infectious and unexpectedly hilarious action-film of an album. The RPG elements of leveling up the character, upgrading weapons, and equipping passive abilities via different types of liquor are functional and entertaining without wrapping the player in the minutiae of the genres more traditional examples.Everything else surrounding the core mechanics is fine-tuned to create a gorgeous and well-realized world. Credits earned can be put towards either downloading an equal amount of work or gift cards. Cancer Clinic, scientists were able to detect 26 new reoccurring genes based on their mutation patterns within the cells.
The years of competition have bred more than just victories, however.The top three bands in the world have a close rivalry. Still, a credible estimate of the fiscal transfer to immigrants is useful to focus policy debate.Javdani added that if you look at the longer term, these immigrants are going to contribute through earning higher incomes and paying higher taxes.
While differences exist between Scandinavian anti-immigration parties, there is a general political ideology that grounds each of their political platforms.Most importantly, all the parties are modeled on Jean-Marie Le Pens anti-immigration National Front party in France. This, of course, has been passed along for years from previous boards which makes it tricky to play the blame game in this situation. However, this phenomenon has so far been of a personal nature staying on top of the latest news regarding friends, family, and extracurricular events.
Welcome to SFU Meme Week, where we take all the best jokes on the Internet and make them about SFU! The coming of age drama surged in the 70s and 80s to become a cinematic standby, and there is nothing that says adulthood like sexual contact. A bit after the half-way mark, Conan finishes signing some autographs and after getting in his car, asks someone to close that fucking door. The story of The Kid trying to survive and rebuild after the apocalyptic Calamity uses one of the best implementations of voice-over narration in all of gaming.
Previously, many other members of the board of directors had been performing the tasks that would normally be performed by the locked out staff.The general office will still be open, well still do all the granting, all of the committees will still meet, [and] the board will still meet, explained SFSS president Jeff McCann.
If the breach is not corrected, the other party may terminate the agreement.Concerns were raised over the 30-day wait. The human mind is capable of undertaking the qualitative calculus of cost-benefit analysis when no quantitative variables present themselves. Whether or not SFPIRG retains their plot of the most prime space on campus will mean nothing to the $200,000 a year they receive from a student levy, out of your pockets and mine, nor will it change what happens to that money.There are many spaces on campus that SFPIRG can use. If thats the case, why are 44 per cent of those released from prison in Canada re-convicted within a year? That party gained electoral success in 1984 because its political ideology emphasized the protection and celebration of Frances unique culture, while taking a hardline stance on immigration issues, but most importantly, rejected any association with Nazism and right-wing extremism.
Thanks to a number of issues, including the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) lawsuit, the grads leaving the society to form the Graduate Student Society, and the health plan reform, the current board is left with the task of creating a fiscally balanced student society. According to Schawbel, however, we should expect to be equally plugged in when it comes to our professional lives.Whereas Microsoft Word-created, hardcopy resumes are still widely accepted, Schawbel predicts within the next 10 years theyll begin to become obsolete, and an online presence search will become as common as a drug test since 2007. These experiences tend to fall into one of two camps: mind-blowingly positive experiences or scarring, horrifying travesties. He constantly switches from being amazing with his fans to being downright shitty with them. The narrator constantly reacts to the players actions and decisions, while still espousing the lore behind all of the beautifully rendered stages and characters. The copy centre will stay closed for commercial activities, although we can use it internally, and were allowed to open the doors to Out on Campus and the Womens Centre.The sides also agreed that, in exchange for the union keeping their pickets away from the SFSS board of directors office, the board would remove the paper that they had placed over the windows to their office after the lockout began.

Now I beg from you a thousand forgivenesses, but my knowledge of the mystic does not extend into the realm of booty trawling.
This controversial option has raised many questions regarding the boundaries of academic honesty.Mediation begins in SFSS lockoutNegotiators from the SFSS board of directors and CUPE local 3338 are meeting with a mediator this Tuesday. The study suggests mutations arising in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma tumors inactivate MLL2, which normally appears to function as a tumor suppressor gene, and enables cancer cells to grow rapidly, despite the bodys regulatory mechanisms. SFUs two key rivals, the Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Bwand from Belfast, Ireland, and the St. Or, at least, some would like to believe that.Lets first begin with why you commit yourself in a relationship using the cost-benefit analysis. Theyre just not as vast, well appointed, and in possession of the amazing view that the SFPIRG offices currently enjoy. Consequently, the National Fronts espousal of a dominant ethno-nationalist policy, coupled with an anti-immigrant stance free of crude racial supremacist views, became a critical blueprint for other European right-wing parties that wished to employ an anti-immigration standpoint while guarding against traditional right-wing extremism linked to Nazism and other purely race-based explanations.Cognizant that crude racial arguments approximating traditional racist arguments are untenable within Nordic politics, the Progress Party is careful to distance itself from Nazi groups and other hate groups which employ crude forms of xenophobia.
For an optimal online presence, Schawbel suggests you acquire your own website with your full name as the URL focusing on search engine optimization for best results accompanied, of course, by social network profiles on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. And it is this weird switching back and forth that makes Conan and his movie so amazing: you spend the hour and a half trying to figure him out when really, its right in front of you. The colourful isometric art combines with a stellar soundtrack to create an oddly optimistic post-apocalyptic world that every Xbox owner should experience. The only reason we had the paper up is because they were standing right outside, and when youre trying to work its very distracting and sometimes intimidating, depending on the day and who was there, said McCann. This position is exactly what this board is working towards in a more fair wage structure, that creates a balance of value for the undergraduate membership for the fees paid.On the assertion that the SFSS had breached the Agreement to Provide Services, McCann added, the person who put forward that claim needs to have another look at the contract. Contract negotiations had previously extended over two fruitless years, leading to the lockout that has persisted since July 8.UBC Bookstore slows rebranding planThe UBC Bookstore has delayed a plan to rebrand itself as UBC Central after profound public backlash including a petition, reports The Ubyssey. The second gene, MEF2B, bears a so-called hot spot mutation pattern reminiscent of oncogenes, another class of cancer genes.According to Morin, the identification of new genetic cancer mutations could lead to new diagnosis tests, and targeted therapy for patients with lymphoma.
Lawrence OToole band from Dublin, both beat SFU at last years competition, and the band will be looking to re-asset itself this year. In their supportive literature, SFPIRG says that it operates a bike tool co-op (a cupboard with some tools in it), a compost centre (four buckets outside of the front door), provides organizing materials (a cupboard with craft supplies), a coffee maker and microwave, and runs workshops.This is how they use this vital student space.
If so, how is concentrating criminals together and restricting their social contact to other prisoners a good idea?
The Progress Party consistently rebukes charges by the left that it is a racist party by stressing that its political platform merely seeks to protect and support the Norwegian values and heritage that have been shaped by Christianity.
These wages are adjusted quarterly for increased cost of living, as dictated by the most recent StatsCan CPI for Vancouver.
Luckily, the wizened Penny Lane barely touches Crowe surrogate William Miller (Patrick Fugit), to his frustration. The dues are based on last years actual costs, not on the service levels provided this year . Staff from Out on Campus read their open letter asking the SFSS to rescind the lockout.McCann addressed the forum, stating that the Womens Center and Out on Campus were the two single most expensive facets of the SFSS, at about $90,000 per resource annually.
Womens and gender studies professor Kim Snowden commented that I find [the name change] somewhat offensive. Hence, you will always make a decision when benefits outweigh the costs.What is puzzling then is the seemingly irrational behaviour of falling head-over-heels in love. No records are available of how many people use these services because these records do not exist. Racist anti-immigration positions are never framed along racial or biological lines by the Progress Party, but rather couched within the more socially acceptable language of cultural conflict.Siv Jensen, leader of Norways Progress Party, discloses that it made her extra sad to know that Breivik was once a member, but then suggests to the public that this is not the time for analysis about it.
The staff positions are all unique, requiring a diverse skill set and different amounts of training, varying from running the copy centre to processing financial information. As most of us who partake in online social networking know, maintaining an up-to-date profile and continued presence is time consuming to say the least. Instead, a trio of barely-clad young women take pains to deflower him as a group project in a hotel containing Alice Cooper, most of Humble Pie, and all of Led Zeppelin.
For example, you may decide to forgo studying for your physics final to watch a movie with that sweet girl in your class here we also see the principle of supply and demand, as the rarity of female students in the physics department drives up the value of the female physicist. Actually, its hard to find out anything at all about the PIRG without running into a lot of trouble.If SFPIRG is forced to move, they will still operate as a money redistribution mechanism that operates with non-existent financial accountability to its members. Now is the exact time that we should be analyzing the exact role that the Progress Party played in Breiviks political socialization.The Progress Party has stated that Breivik was a member of its youth wing from 19972007 and also a member of the national Progress Party body from 19992006. The SFSS proposes that instead of paying staff at a flat rate, employees should be compensated based on their skills and training a concept that is commonly accepted in the job market. Never mind that we do it by choice, not because our potential careers and livelihoods depend on it.
McCann explained that renovations were paid for from the Space Expansion Fund, which is earmarked specifically for renovations and construction and cannot be used for ordinary operations without a referendum.The motion in favour of the lockout carried through with eight noted abstentions.
Is our society really so unenlightened?The Conservatives have taken a flawed system with contradictory and incoherent goals and added mandatory minimum sentences and privately-operated prisons to the mix.
The Progress Party is suggesting that Breivik was a relatively uninvolved member in party activities, only attending annual membership meetings, and reports seem to support this, but just because he was not actively involved in party politics does not mean that the party is absolved of blame.Mr. This would result in some staff, such as the co-ordinators at Out on Campus and the Womens Centre, facing a dramatic pay decrease. Schawbel goes on to mention, employers are reviewing your profiles to see what kind of person you are outside of work, who youre connected to, and how you present yourself. In the next fiscal is when they would pay based on the services we provided this year.This July meeting saw a higher than usual turnout, likely due to the controversy surrounding the lockout. Yet, you find yourself cuddled up in a movie theatre.An economist will say that you are still being rational. I cant see how these changes are in the service of any of the three goals Ive mentioned; the only motive I can see is profit. Breivik is the product of a particular political socialization in his life, and the fact that he was a member of the Progress Party from 19972006 highlights how his xenophobia and liberal conservatism were nurtured and legitimized consistently by the Progress Partys particular form of racism.
By deciding to spend time with her, you have compared the net benefits of your alternative and chosen the option that will maximize your utility, your happiness.At equilibrium, happiness is maximized for both of you and there is no incentive to change your behaviour. For weeks before the 2010 AGM, concerned students had asked SFPIRG to provide any financial statements that could show where the money from the past five years had gone collectively almost a million dollars. Private prisons stand to make money on mandatory minimums, and for some reason, the Conservatives have decided to hand it to them.Mandatory minimum sentences achieve nothing other than higher incarceration rates. With a traditional resume and job application, a prospective employer knows about you only what is necessary and relevant to the job.
Although the doors to Out on Campus and the Womens Centre will remain open, many of their volunteers have refused to cross the picket lines that have been and will remain outside of them. Despite all the information offered by various council members over the course of the discussion of the two motions, when Dhillon asked to see by a show of hands, who felt fully informed on the issues surrounding the CUPE lockout, only half of the room raised their hands. The bid to evict SFPIRG was a bid to reclaim the 1,300-square foot office and lounge and make it a more efficient use of student space.The group listed the free resources they offer to students, which includes staff support for clubs to acquire funding for social justice initiatives, the bike tool co-op, meeting room for student clubs, as well as supplies such as poster paper and paint for students to use. At the same time, weve heard recordings of the other top bands, and theyre playing really well, also. The only problem is the infamous law of diminishing marginal value which states that the more of something you have, the less valuable it will become.The longer you see someone, you may notice that youre not as willing to sacrifice your time hanging out with friends, taking an extra shift at work, or studying, just to spend more time with your lover.Then you may ask, are marriages counter to this law? They take away the ability of judges to make independent, case-by-case analyses of what the appropriate punishment for a specific crime is. Breivik praises the work of the Progress Party in his manifesto as the only major political party in Norway that has voiced any serious opposition to the madness of Muslim immigration.
This is based on two parents working full-time with two small children, and takes into account costs of basic necessities as well as other expenses such as transit.
I have no desire to know where my boss drinks on the weekend, what she did on vacation, or her relationship status and I expect the same respect and privacy in return. Were still trying to find creative solutions about how to get volunteers in there, said McCann.
Immediately after, a vote was called for the second motion regarding the staff lockout, in which there was a unanimous vote to pass.
University Relations Officer Marc Fontaine defended the SFSSs decision, clarifying that the recommendation to evict SFPIRG was not a move to eliminate the research group altogether, but to allow better use of the space, adding that the office would be moved to another suitable location on campus.There is a humongous space there.
Wouldnt the marginal value of your husband after 70 years be incredibly low?Thats not necessarily true.
All that was provided at the meeting itself was an unaudited financial statement with six nebulous line items that stated of the $200,000 PIRG received that year $165,000 was spent on staff who administered $8,500 in donations to social justice initiatives and clubs.Think about that.
The American experience with these policies should make it abundantly clear that they wont reduce criminal behaviour.Private prisons, meanwhile, take the already-incomprehensible hodgepodge of traditions that make our contemporary criminal justice system so ineffective and throw profit motives into the mix. As much as the Progress Party would like to distance itself from Breivik, it is clear that he remains faithful to their xenophobic political project.Again, Breivik is no neo-Nazi, but rather the product of Scandinavian right-wing xenophobia, which is a serious issue that Scandinavians seem reluctant to acknowledge.
This budget, however, does not allow for retirement or post-secondary education savings, nor home ownership. Thats the biggest thing that Ive heard, is those safe spaces arent just the space being open, but having volunteers in there. In a paper written by SFUs own Doug Allen, he takes an institutional approach to analyzing the fundamental role of marriage.
That means that of $200,000 that year, 4.25 per cent was spent on fulfilling their core mandate of supporting social justice initiatives.
Do we really want to create an industry in our country that will lobby government for policies that will put more people behind bars? Breivik expended considerable effort to make his political position very clear, which should alert us that he was no madman, just a xenophobe who did not like the direction his country was heading and wished to stop it immediately. While many of the proposed wages after decreases will still sit above the living wage, some such as student wages could potentially fall to $13 per hour.On top of decreasing wages, the SFSS board would also like to reduce the number of minimum employees required by the collective agreement. Should my social networking profiles really be raided and scrutinized for that bank teller or bookstore manager position?
Is that not a wholly corrupt and offensive compromise of our freedom?Dont think for a second that the private prison industry will make freedom and justice its central goals.
Breiviks lawyer, Geir Lippestad, told news reporters that his client wanted to revolutionize Norwegian society and confessed to the factual atrocities, but will not plead guilty in court.His lawyer further added that his client was fully aware that it was gruesome having to commit these acts, but in his head they were necessary.
Currently, they are mandated to employ the equivalent of 12.4 full-time positions, which is the level employed now. Speaking for myself, and I think for the union, I think its a positive sign that the two parties were able to come to this agreement, that it didnt come from a ruling from the LRP, that folks were able to sit around the table and hammer out an agreement about whats acceptable during this lockout and whats not, Overgaard said. Students like meeting places, and the SFPIRG office would be cheap to renovate.I dont consider this getting rid of SFPIRG, Fontaine added.

In 2009, two judges from Luzerne County in Pennsylvania, Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan, pleaded guilty to accepting $2.6 million in payoffs from PA Child Care LLC in exchange for sending kids to their juvenile hall.
This statement is telling because it demonstrates that he is full aware of what he did, but that he will use his court time to explain why he felt compelled to commit the horrendous acts. The SFSS would like to decrease this minimum down to the equivalent of seven full-time positions so that they have the option to eliminate positions or reduce hours if necessary. Were happy that we can continue, and get back to the business of the society, agreed McCann.
Yes, love and tax breaks increase the value of marriages, but in essence marriage is a contract that helps to ensure the success of procreation.Here, the basic assertion is that people, belonging to the mammalian class, have an innate desire to procreate, and the costs of finding someone with whom to procreate and raise offspring are very high.
But I am for those things, not for spending $160,000 to administer the spending of $8,500 especially when we have no idea where any of it went, or how it was used.I was part of the very loosely organized and diverse group of people that attended the SFPIRG AGM in 2010. This is an extraordinary example of corruption, but it was incentivized by a private prison system.We should remove monetary interests from concerns of freedom and justice to the greatest extent possible.
Breiviks request for a public hearing demonstrates how keen he is to express the reasoning behind his maniacal actions.The Progress Party has reportedly toned down its anti-immigration stance over the past couple of years, but it still does not relieve them of partial blame in the Norwegian massacre.
This is difficult for the union to swallow because such an agreement would likely result in the termination of a number of employees, who they along with students who may use their services regard as valuable.The current collective agreement also includes many benefits for employees. In other words, if youre not technically inclined, or have better things to do with your time than create a dozen online profiles to optimize your job search, well, too bad.
We still have lots of opportunities for clubs and student unions, and were going to be able to keep a lot of services open.
So there you are SLUT, wisdom honed from sage minds and proven through centuries of armed conflict. The institution of marriage is an ingenious way of dealing with all sorts of problems that arise with ensuring dynasties.But what about the claim that arranged marriages last longer? A truly free society would view the possibility that people are being sent to jail as universally negative, a contingency that is to be avoided unless absolutely necessary. The Progress Party has been employing its unique form of racism openly in Norwegian politics since the early 1990s and something violent was bound to happen.Xenophobic groups, no matter how they express their message, cannot be allowed to promote bigotry. For instance, the SFSS is required to pay for the equivalent of up to 15 undergraduate SFU credits requested by permanent staff for their own personal development. This basically implies that actual credentials and personal qualifications, skills, talent, experience, and the like, are virtually irrelevant or seemingly invisible unless you have an online presence. Im excited to move forward with the regular business of the society and try to get back to the table and reach an agreement with the union.
Hertzman explains that some of Vancouvers weather woes may have occurred because the Hawaiian High didnt build to its usual levels this year. So that group moves there and we move in here.However, the meeting lost quorum before a motion could be passed, while those remaining voted to postpone the discussion to a later date. There are various types of costs, but one that is most important here is the concept of opportunity cost. Society Act about 10 times within the first 30 minutes of the meeting by not approving the past minutes, not presenting financial information for the previous year, and attempting to amend their constitution without the required 75 per cent supermajority required by their own constitution.Contrary to Mr. The truly surprising thing about the Norwegian massacre is that Breivik did not unleash his anger and rage upon non-white, Muslim immigrants.
Apparently, by building your online presence, employers can find you and thus you have more opportunities.
This alone is a convoluted event with many possible explanations (mostly that atmospheric systems are incredibly complicated, and inextricably linked).
Economists believe that nothing has inherent value; rather, the price of something is defined by what you are willing to give up to obtain it. Templetons claim last week, the people there did not try to mob the AGM and pass hostile motions; no motions were presented by the group of concerned students. In this case, it is entirely appropriate to say that Stephen Harper is attacking Canadian values. But then again, Breivik is no reactionary racist and is fully aware that in order to address Norways alleged immigration problem he would need to address the political foundation of Norways recent immigration trend.In a state of shock and sadness, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg told reporters that [c]ompared to other countries I wouldnt say we have a big problem with right-wing extremists in Norway. Furthermore, an employee of two years receives three weeks of paid vacation which continues to increase up until 10 years of employment, when staff receive eight weeks of paid vacation time.
I dont know about the rest of you, but I was always told to make my resume and cover letter as concise as possible because employers will likely only skim them due to lack of time.
However, in a zero-sum system like the atmosphere, the answer is deceptively simple: one system is weaker because another, competing system is stronger. Simply put, the price of marriage is what you give up to stay married freedom of single-hood, being with other potential lovers, traveling alone, focusing on school.However, in cultures that practice arranged marriages, divorce is usually prohibited or divorcees are ostracized by society. What the group did do was ask why SFPIRG has not had an independent external audit in its 30-year existence, and where the money for the last year had gone.They also blocked a motion put forth by PIRG to remove any democratic accountability from the organization which would have had removed the requirement that their board of directors be freely elected by SFU students.
I suppose a huge corporation has the means to recruit new staff, but I doubt the average company has the money, time, or human resources to allot to finding prospective employees.
In this case the competing system is the heat dome or extreme high pressure zone that formed over the continent, and its this event that explains the record high temperatures that have been seen everywhere east of the Rockies.Unfortunately, its not enough to simply say that the high-pressure zones formed differently this year. In effect, once someone is married to his or her arranged spouse, he or she does not have other alternative options to staying in marriage. This motion would have seen their board vetted for their ideological suitability by a committee which would appoint only those amenable to the status quo.In full view of the meeting and witnessed by dozens, one PIRG critic asking where the money went was threatened by a PIRG supporter with having their teeth knocked out.
So, putting this in context, a staff member who has been employed for over 10 years can technically take close to the full 13-week semester off while still being paid.
Not exactly the victimhood narrative that SFPIRG is happy to trot out to any who will listen.Requests for up-to-date financial statements from SFPIRG and follow-through on their very public promise to undertake full audits have been met with stonewalled silence. Many media outlets have been quick to point the finger at global climate change, and they may be right, though not in the way most people traditionally understand it.
Ill leave you with something to think about: diamond rings became the symbol of engagement in the 1930s.
PIRG supporters are happy to point to the cupboard of bike tools and poster board as key services they provide, but are serially unable and unwilling to account for their finances in any credible fashion.I will agree with Templeton that the decision to terminate the lease could have been handled differently, but asking SFPIRG to relocate in no way threatens their privileged position of being an unaccountable mechanism to funnel money into the pockets of their staff members and unnamed individuals and organizations. The continuity and holistic understanding that the staff provide then is hugely beneficial for the often inexperienced incoming directors. While many think of global warming as a uniform temperature increase over the whole planet, climatologists are more concerned about its potential to alter climate and weather patterns unevenly across space.Hertzman explains that one hypothesis is that the tropical regions will expand, moving the subtropical high pressure zones up with them. When post-Victorian virtues were still prevalent, women had better a prospect of marriage if they were virgins. If SFPIRG has to move, they are in a very comfortable position to do so.It is true that PIRG should be dealt with through the proper channels. However, you can see how having the institutional memory of the organization held by the employees not the employers has the potential to be problematic when it comes to negotiating a new collective agreement.
Can you see the correlation between the decreasing size of the diamonds and womens sexual liberation over the decades?Doesnt it make perfect economic sense?
That is, the question of PIRGs accountability should be put to the students directly, by way of a binding referendum. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have declared us to be in a ENSO-neutral phase. After all, they have not received a renewed democratic mandate from undergrads in their 30-year history, and elections are always in the public interest.Asking SFPIRG to relocate in no way threatens their privileged position of being an unaccountable mechanism to funnel money into the pockets of non-student staff members and unnamed off campus individuals and organizations. The current board has hired a lawyer to assist with the negotiating process, and is also being advised by a non-unionized manager for the society.
But could it still go on to affect the weather?El Nio is part of a greater cycle of alternating warm and cool surface waters in the western Pacific Ocean known as ENSO, or the El Nio-Southern Oscillation. The warm phase corresponds to the most well-known event, often simply referred to as El Nio. At the moment, full-time undergraduates are paying $24.35 per semester into the operational budget of the student society. While the implications of this temperature change vary wildly across the world, during El Nio years the Pacific Northwest is blessed with warmer, drier weather.
This fund is responsible for financing most of what the SFSS provides to students, including food and beverage services like the Ladle or the Highland Pub, counselling services such as Out on Campus and the Womens Centre, miscellaneous services like the food bank, and staff wages and benefits. What some meteorologists hypothesize were seeing right now however, is the other half of the oscillation the cooler, wetter phase known as La Nia.
A recent referendum added a student fee of $1 per semester of targeted funding for clubs which used to be funded through the activity fee and therefore increased revenue.
Aside from this, the fees used towards operations have not increased for approximately 15 years, despite inflation and increased costs such as added board positions for new faculty representatives.
UVIC, a school with an undergraduate enrolment slightly smaller than SFUs, requires an undergraduate contribution to its societys operations of approximately $30 per semester, which could suggest that an increase for the SFSS activity fee is necessary.
The differing surface water temperatures translate into altered pressure zones across the ocean, which in turn cause changes in everything from wind patterns to ocean circulation regimes. When talking about Vancouver weather however, we can keep it simple: cool water equals cool, wet air which then gets blown straight towards our city.So in the end whats responsible for our bummer summer?
With full-time undergraduates contributing $15 per semester, generating around $915,000 per year, the space expansion fund currently sits at approximately $2.7 million. The union has suggested that since the board has shown limited interest in increasing the student activity fee, a portion of student contributions to the fund should be reallocated to the operational budget. Its too early to tell if were looking down the barrel of a long-term trend, but not too early for some good news: the Hawaiian High seems to be gaining momentum, which may not solve all our weather woes, but could salvage the rest of the summer. We may not set any temperature records, but we Vancouverites are nothing in the face of rainy adversity if not optimistic. However, the SFSS recently spent approximately $800,000 on the pub renovations, and are planning to build a food court in the Atrium cafeteria, and renovate the bottom floor of the Maggie Benston Centre.
These renovations are all costly, the board argues, because they must employ SFU facilities staff to perform them. Plus, all new furniture must meet SFU quality standards, which might explain why the SFSS spent $500 per chair in the new Undergrounds student space. The space expansion fund has already been put to use in finding extra funding, however: for the past several years, rather than borrowing money from outside the organization in order to pay for their annual deficits, the SFSS has borrowed money from the Fund.
The current board, however, is seeking to improve these numbers by taking an active interest in their profitability. Whether you agree or disagree with the lockout, you should let your board of directors know so that they can accurately represent you.
