If all goes according to plan, the Queen’s Centre will contain the first buildings on campus to be certified environmentally friendly. The four buildings making up the Queen’s Centre—the Varsity Building, Arena Building, Natatorium Building that house the pool and the Student Union Building—and the School of Physical and Health Education are being constructed under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating system. LEED is a guide for large construction projects made by the Canada Green Building Council.
There are differences between men and women. I’m not a biology major but I know that an average male has a penis, while your typical female has a vagina. You have one or the other. To quote Abraham Lincoln, “We hold these truths to be self-evident.” Go ahead, have a look. Honest Abe never told a lie.
I was disappointed, to say the least, by the content in the Queen’s vs. Kingston issue. While town-gown relations are an important topic, I did not find the articles to be informative or relevant to the Queen’s-Kingston situation. To the contrary, these articles highlighted issues such as property tax payments (granted by the Provincial government to the town) and increasing class sizes (a result of increased university enrollment province-wide).

Gaels’ running back Mike Giffin was named to the first-team All-Canadian football team Wednesday. Giffin was the first running back in Queen’s history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season, and set school records with 16 touchdowns and 96 points. He finished tied for second in Canada with 12 rushing touchdowns. Receiver Rob Bagg, offensive lineman Cody Kennedy and defensive lineman Osie Ukwuoma were all given second-team honours.
In 2003, when the French government opposed the American war on Iraq, certain areas of the United States exploded with anti-French sentiment. The most amusing legacy of this political clash is the renaming of French toast and French fries to “freedom toast” and “freedom fries.” Claimed to be a protest against France’s stance, the small culinary admonishment attracted a wide variety of media attention and the incident quickly became the subject of international criticism and ridicule. This is not, however, a unique incident. “Freedom fries” belong to a longstanding tradition of words used throughout history to make political statements.
