Does Not Compute

Illustration by Eleanor Qu Brave New World For most of us, the word cyborg likely conjures images of RoboCop or the Bionic Woman. We envision bodies where limbs are replaced by machines, enhancing one’s way of life: Darth Vader, whose helmet hides a face obscured by burns and scars; Star Trek’s Borg, whose coldly calculated […]

SFU walks the catwalk

When one thinks of fashion, SFU probably isn’t the first place that comes to mind. With NCAA sports teams, a world renowned co-op program, and notable academic achievements, fashion would seem to be the least of our concerns. So it might’ve come as a surprise that SFU would be hosting its first ever Fashion Week, […]

There will be blood

One of the happiest days of my life was the day I realized I had gotten my period for the first time. To me, my menarche was like being initiated into a club that I had been admiring my entire life. So, naturally, as any excited-beyond-belief 11-year old would do, I went to school the […]

SFU vs. UBC

You’ve all heard the jokes about UBC and SFU. I know you have — they’re written all over every bathroom stall in the school. Here’s my personal favourite: “What do SFU and UBC undergrads have in common? They both applied to UBC.” There are hundreds more just like it. Some portray UBC kids as snooty […]

End unpaid internships

During an awkward icebreaker game at the beginning of the semester, someone asked me if I planned to take an internship. I laughed nervously and told her no, considering most of the internships in my field of interest were unpaid. I was taken aback by her response; she recoiled in horror, as if she were […]

Our Colour-Coded World

There are few feelings that ever rivaled breaking open the seal of your brand new crayon box as a primary school student. No more borrowing crayons from the other kids at school. You could finally use any colour you wanted: Carnation Pink, Sky Blue, Brick Red. The anxiety of being stuck with the five most unwanted, […]

The Right to Choose

Like every other middle class family in Pakistan, my house had maids — someone who cooked and cleaned, helped out with the household chores, and took care of us. My sibling and I developed strong bonds with these women, until they had to leave our house, and we said goodbye. We moved on. When I […]

SFU cracks down on academic dishonesty

A recent CBC survey has shown that SFU punishes over ten times the number of cheaters as UBC. Rob Gordon, criminology professor at SFU, explained that the survey results, based on the 2011/2012 school year, measure the level of faculty reporting, not the actual occurrence of academic dishonesty. In total, over 500 SFU students were […]

Wake up and smell the bacon

Apparently, the time for sniffing our iPhones has arrived. “Scented” mobile apps are an emerging product, along with their small mobile accessories which plug right into the headphone jack. The accessory emits a puff of scent in accordance with whatever actions are being played out on the iPhone screen. I have to say, the more […]
