Site preserving musical legacy strikes right chord

Generals Gathered, a metal band from Thunder Bay. Simply Saucer, a punk band from Hamilton. Fear of Dogma, a rock band from London. Odds are you haven’t heard of any of these bands, but Jonathan Martel is doing his best to get the word – or in this case, music – out to the masses.

Cover song boots student into prime time

You could say it was an Israeli soccer commercial that kicked off an international music career for Gareth Bush. You’d be surprised to hear the fourth-year King’s University College Criminology student is hoping a local fan base will pick up as a result.

Campus Digest: Dean, alumnae named among influential women

Richard Ivey School of Business Dean Carol Stephenson, along with five Western alumnae, have been named among Canada’s most influential women, according to Women of Influence Magazine in the Canadian publication’s 2nd annual Top 25 Women of Influence list, released in its Winter 2012 issue.

Future of God

‘Spirituality’ is almost impossibly vague. Postmodernity has highlighted one cannot speak from a disembodied perspective, as if context and particularity don’t matter. The context from which I speak is as a North American engaged in Roman Catholic theology.
