Science is like fire: it changes lives and creates futures. When Prometheus took fire from Olympus, people thought fire was a miracle, and Prometheus was a hero. In a way, engineering technology is like those ancient myths, because it brings miracles to people’s lives. For example, 2,000 years ago, people could not believe that they […]

“You decide when it will hurt,” chides a father to his son in Per Petterson’s novel Out Stealing Horses. The novel, set in the Norwegian forest in both the present day and in 1948, is a tender look at human relationships and the forces that determine how we, as individuals, are defined. Petterson has become […]

It’s a hot summer day at Camosun College’s Lansdowne campus. I’m walking beneath the bridge that connects the Fisher and Ewing buildings, my footsteps echoing amid the summer silence that fills the air. When autumn comes, the bookstore line-up will be visible from across the parking lot; for now, the campus is tranquil. But campuses […]

Tuition should be eliminated, and we the students need to make that happen. For many years I’ve heard warning klaxons signal the approach of the debt apocalypse. Social spending must be cut due to constant budget shortfalls; in other news, our corporate benefactors will abandon us if we do not lower their taxes and entice […]

Kubo and the Two Strings 4/5 I grew up watching movies. Every Friday night my sister and I would settle into the couch as my parents popped a flick into the VCR. It was a time to be truly at ease; there was no school worry, no chores to be done. It was a cathartic […]

25 Years Ago in Nexus: September 7, 2016 issue

Going green: In our September 3, 1991 issue, the story “Recycling program kicks off” talked about how Camosun College’s paper recycling program was just getting underway. Seems quaint to think of it now, but a lot has changed in 25 years. Back then, we reported that at least one paper recycling bin would be on […]
