B.C.'s Environmental Economy: A Sinking Feeling
Katherine Gordon

It’s July – the Lower Mainland’s favourite season. Weeks on end of virtually rain-free frolicking on local beaches; fresh berries on restaurant dessert menus; skipping work for a little fishing or golf in the afternoons. But while some rejoice in...

Olympic Sponsorships: Getting a Grip on 2010
Andrew Findlay

It seemed like a shoe-in for Olympic sponsorship. The smart money was on Roots Canada for getting their grip on 2010. Given its well-established relationship with the Canadian Olympic team, it was the darling choice for official Olympic tailor and for the lucrative licensing rights to manufacture clothing for our athletes and the public, with royalties spinning back to the Vancouver Olympic Committee.

Korean Immigration and Cultural Differences: Seoul in the City
Jessica Werb

Skipping class. Talking back to your mother. Ignoring your curfew. Just the kind of behaviour you would expect from a typical Canadian teenager. But for one 16-year-old North Vancouver boy, the punishment for these transgressions is anything but typical. In...

UBC Development: Rising Up on Campus
Trevor Boddy

This evening’s showdown of diverging visions for the campus will change the direction of UBC’s development and lead directly to B.C.’s first international architectural competition in 14 years (the last one, in 1991, resulted in Moshe Safdie’s Library Square).

Sabbaticals: Time Off With New Behavior
Lori Bamber

Start planning now and you could be taking a year off by 2009. For inspiration, we’ve tracked down four sabbatical veterans – four different fields, four different kinds of sabbaticals . . . four fabulous examples of why you should start planning one of your own.

Economic Politics: The Billion Dollar Question
Robin Brunet

Have Gordon Campbell’s economic policies been visionary or myopic? Unfortunately, we can’t rely on statistics to provide a clear answer to that question. Worse, pundits often use statistics to reach contradictory – and confusing – conclusions. Listeners to CKNW’s Money...

Intermeccanicas: Car Lust
Cam Fortems

I first lusted over the car I’m now test driving parked outside the shop doors off Vancouver’s Main Street with another six cars parked inside in various states of assembly. Glossy and pulsing red, it stood out from the blues, blacks and silvers of the other Intermeccanicas in assembly.

Okanagan Mountain Park Fire: Hell on Okaview Road
Greg Fjetland

Most house fires burn at a temperature between 1,200 and 1,500 degrees Celsius. In the Okanagan Mountain Park firestorm of last August, temperatures peaked at about 2,500 degrees. Under those conditions the fire is so intense, the heat so all-consuming...
