mini uggs sale University of Alberta Semester 2

I have just wrapped up eleven intensely awesome months in Edmonton studying at the University of Alberta. Before I left everybody told me to take every opportunity, and to take the chance to (almost!) never say no. This year has been the most amazing and unexpected adventure, from climbing the peaks in the Rockies, down to even the simplest sounding task of grocery shopping! The amount of things I ticked off my bucket list is huge. I have skied all over British Columbia (Whistler/Blackcombe/Revelstoke/Cyprus Mountain/Kicking Horse) and Alberta (Marmot Basin/ Sunshine Village/Lake Louise); I camped under the stars, both exhilarated and terrified of the bears that might be closing in on me; I lived out of home for eleven months; I been to Seattle, New York, Providence, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal, Niagara Falls and Toronto; I made friends from Norway, Sweden, England, Scotland, France, Germany, New Zealand, Brazil, and of course, Canada! And I had my first WHITE CHRISTMAS (I got really excited OK), my first Thanksgiving and my first taste of 43

But the most fun I had was in and around the Uni of Alberta campus and its city of Edmonton. Student life is so different and personally I think better than at home. Everyone lives in residence, and Lister Centre on campus has been phenomenal I lived in Schaffer tower, with a single room, private bathroom and shared kitchen facilities. My floor is like my second family and those last few days of goodbyes were so incredibly bittersweet, I just know I be back. In my opinion, there really is no other way to experience the Uni of Alberta. There is always someone around to hang out with, someone to grab a bite with, someone to drink with, someone to go to drop in with oh yeh! And then there dodgeball the most intense and addictive sport you will ever try, played every week in the terms in the Lister gym (At the U of A all students also get free access to the gigantic gyms, pools, ice skating rinks etc in the big yellow Butterdome which is awesome). In Lister the motto is is everything to everyone and they not wrong. You will become addicted and you will (probably) cry when it over. There are so many social activities including ski trips organised for the residents here, I truly never had a dull moment. I can recommend it highly enough. At the uni itself, I also managed to be a part of their student union first ever student musical,
ugg australia bailey button triplet boots University of Alberta Semester 2
Frankenstein which was amazing we totally take our UQ student theatre for granted! I also played volleyball on a rec team and took ice skating lessons for a semester they have free skating hours on their uni rink too. I couldn think of anything more different to Brisbane than heading down to ice skate on a Sunday afternoon with my floormates free!

Tips; You should go to the Clubs and Associations Fair at the beginning of the year you score free t shirts and memberships to some awesome clubs; my two were the Outdoors Club and the Ski and Snowboard Club. I went on a trip with both of them they were soo cheap and soo much fun! Plus there are post trip meet ups at the clubs and pubs a week afterward with discounted drinks and nibblies do it.

You HAVE to go to a Golden Bears Hockey game, and a Pandas Volleyball game. Cheering for your uni team helps you blend in and you will meet sooo many people!

The only Lister downside was the meal plan it deceptive. You think $2100 a semester is a lot, but the residence food outlets are seriously inflated and you are better off getting the cheapest meal plan, using it to buy milk/bread/cheese/coffee/snacks etc in Lister and around campus, and then coughing up a few dollars at Safeway for a load of groceries cooking a couple breakfasts and dinners a week will seriously cut your spending I just bought the biggest meal plan, and it didn last me the whole year. I ended up four weeks short and had to scrounge for food that I hadn budgeted for. But, if I known I would have been much better off (and probably would have eaten a lot healthier too).

The other incredible upsides to Lister are across the road Champs and Dukes, the local student bars/pubs. Honestly, you understand. Just go, even if you don feel like it.

Learn the Cadillac Ranch line dance as soon as you can. Otherwise you will stand out. Line dancing and country music are a thing in Alberta.

Don take heals. You will NOT wear them. Like ever. Most nights out you hike through knee deep snow anyway. If you absolutely must have some then make them heeled boots so you feet are still warm. I ended up chucking mine to save room in my packing. A pair of flats will get you through but you most likely be wearing boots, uggs, or converse type shoes, even when you head out.

Fall in love with Tim Hortons it seriously the best cheap coffee and iced coffee and hot chocolate and snacks ever. Sacrificing a few $5 starbucks cups will save you heaps of dough for travel plus, during March and April they have their Canada wide up the Rim Competition, where one in six cups has prizes ranging from free coffees to free cars the locals love it and you will too.

DON freak out about the cold. I am the last person who enjoys not being able to feel my hands but I was absolutely fine. Indoor heating means you will never be cold in any class/room. Buy yourself a couple of pairs of fleece leggings if you worried, but honestly, you can survive the winter in jeans. You will definitely need ugg boots but buy them when you arrive, they $10 30 depending on your taste, and you will ruin them in the winter and then chuck them out before you go easy. I bought a ski jacket when I was here that was nice enough to double as a coat during the day worked out really well. You should check out Sportchek sale sections if you going to buy and it honestly doesn matter what colour your jacket is everyone wears their ski jackets all through winter and you will learn to recognise people by their relative colours etc when they have a scarf bundled around their neck and a hood up. Also, buy mits, not gloves it not a myth, mits keep your hands warmer. layer, layer is your mantra and you breeze through 43.

Before you book any ski trips, check out those offered by the Ski and Snowboard club, and if there aren any for when you want to go, they buy bulk lift passes and sell them discounted to member students drop by their office and see what you can get your hands on for cheaps and then start planning. If you plan to ski or skate a lot like I did, it also cheaper to buy your own second hand gear and then sell it at the end of your exchange there are heaps of places around that facilitate.

Definitely try and get on either the Outdoors club or Ski Club New Year trips both are absolutely awesome and great value and don require any organisation on your part. In my year the Outdoors club went down to California for some surfing, rock climbing and hiking a friend came back from it with a tan while I had not seen a day above 0 the entire time I was a little jealous.

Also, go to class. The profs are allowed to fail kids for not going. I found the smaller class sizes and Lister proximity to campus made me a much more regular attendee than at home anyway. As far as classes went, I got to take both film and music classes I was that really annoying girl constantly emailing my advisors and faculties to get a really long list of courses approved before I left, and I am soo glad I did. I ended up changing some of my second semester courses after my first semester there because there were a couple of profs I really liked and some of the other students recommended or turned me against certain subjects, but I was soo happy I had the flexibility to do that. So definitely scour the course catalogue for anything and everything you might be interested in taking and getting credit for while you are putting together a study plan.

Lastly, if you can, absolutely 100% go for the entire academic year. My two semesters were so different. My first was predominantly spent with the internationals (most of whom were only there for a semester) travelling and the like. My second semester was soo much more authentically Canadian, as there were very few internationals left. My friendships with all the Canadians were cemented, real winter hit and I honestly really settled into their way of life in the second half.

I can force anyone to go abroad, but if I could, I would. You will honestly learn so much about yourself like how much $1 Kraft Dinner you can deal with in order to preserve funds for the European trip you decided to tack on the end of a year exchange. But you also learn about a new culture, you meet a bunch of people who will change your life and you won be the same ever again. Seriously, don think,
ugg australia bailey button triplet boots University of Alberta Semester 2
just go. It honestly doesn get more different or more authentically Canadian than the University of Alberta in Edmonton.

It difficult to ignore a seven foot, 300 pound offensive lineman walking down the street wearing high socks and red pumps. When he starts talking to you about sexual assault awareness, it almost impossible.

Walking in women shoes and bright socks, about 15 members of the University of Windsor Lancers football team joined about 100 other men in helping spread sexual assault awareness Saturday morning.

important for us to support these kinds of events, said head coach Joe D a football team sometimes you get a reputation, the stereotype (of being violent) on campus. Obviously we want to end sexual assault. guys are recognized as football players, kids look up to them and it important for them to show it not just about being an athlete. It about giving back to the community D said.

Members of the Lancers football team don some pumps for Walk a Mile in Her Shoes at the Riverside Sportmen’s Club, Saturday, May 30, 2015. The walk is intended to raise awareness about sexual violence towards woman and children. (DAX MELMER/The Windsor Star)

This is the fifth year of the walk, which is focused on getting men to talk openly about sexual assault said Lydia Fiorini, executive director of the Sexual Assault Crisis Centre, and organizer of the event.

asking men to have some awareness about what it like for their daughters, their sisters, their children, and even the young men who are sexually abused, she said.

In 2011, more than 14,000 women across Canada reported being sexually assaulted to police, according to a report by Statistics Canada. The report notes the number of actual sexual assaults may be much higher as 90 per cent of sexual assaults are not reported to police.

Each year 1,000 people come to the sexual assault crisis centre, but low reporting levels mean the number of sexual assaults in Windsor Essex each year could be much higher. Fiorini said Windsor Essex County doesn seem to have a higher rate of sexual assault than other parts of the province.

statistics are startling, Fiorini said. one of the highest forms of violence we do to each other, yet it seems to me to be the quietest. We don talk a lot about sexual violence. We want men to be ambassadors for stopping the violence. men are cast as abusers, Fiorini said. By speaking out against sexual violence, they can take a role in actively changing that stereotype, something the Lancers football team is doing, she said.

Apart from this walk, D said the Lancers are also planning on partnering with the women studies department at the University of Windsor in its Bringing the Bystander program.

we take the lead, others will follow, said Randy Beardy, a Lancers offensive tackle. With feet that can only fit into size 19 shoes, he could only wear the high socks and show off his legs. team likes to come out to these types of events. Our calves look great today, everybody looks great today, it a fun atmosphere, a great cause, and a great opportunity. The walk is intended to raise awareness about sexual violence towards woman and children. epaper, Digital Access, Subscriber Rewards), please input your Print Newspaper subscription phone number and postal code.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. A University of Alabama student repeatedly used a racial slur in videos posted on social media, prompting immediate condemnation from school officials and her apparent expulsion Wednesday.

University President Stuart R. Bell called the videos offensive and deeply hurtful, and said the student, Harley Barber, is longer enrolled here.

uggs sales United will walk the league next season

VAR is the subject of intense debate, while Liverpool fans compare their 2014 and 2018 front threes and Man Utd readers reflect on an FA Cup win in Your Says of the Day.

VAR far from perfect

It won’t be perfect but for all the drawbacks, there’s a massive upside. Would have loved VAR when Rooney dived to get a penalty and ended our unbeaten run. It had to end sometime but to be cheated out of it in that way still rankles 13 years later (admittedly, us Gooners don’t have much else to cling to these days).

I don’t want the flow of the game to be hindered by VAR. It kills the atmosphere in the stadium. The point of football is to enjoy it and get the stadium going the spectacle. If incorrect decisions are made now and then, so be it life goes on.

I think incorrect decisions add to the fanfare in any case. VAR is sterilizing the whole emotion in the sport. Next thing FIFA will end up proposing commercial breaks while VAR decisions are being made and then suddenly it’s all ruined.

Very interesting debate; my question is; When fans see the video replays that the ref sees, how can there still be disagreement over what the right call should have been?

Could the refs be using their ‘final word’ rights to show VAR the middle finger? For me, once we decide to use VAR, then the the match ref should wait to be told what the correct call is. An offside is an offside whether the match ref reviews the video or not.

Just let the managers have one var request each per game on big decisions. Big decisions can only be penalties, disallowed goals or sendings off.

That would just let the ref get on with the game without having the extra thought of should this go to var or not.

Why is offside not computerised now as well?! They have all types of software tracking every players movements for stats and analysis why is this not adapted for offside decisions? Surely couldnt be that hard.

Apparently Wenger now wants these two CBs. In the event Manure want to dispense of their services, then they must be deemed not good enough. What does this make us? Maybe this is a concession that we are no longer a top tier team, and Manure rejects are upgrades for the Arsenal team. Why can’t our scouts now find the next Kos, Kolo Toure etc? I am really pinning my hope on a major overhaul in the summer. Wenger must be feeling the heat now,
ugg classic short leather boots United will walk the league next season
as he has been saying he intends to see out his contract. The point is this is not totally up to him. With Kroenke’s son pitching a tent for the next three months, who knows what is cooking behind the scene. Hopefully it means Wenger out. I said all along that we collect rejects its all we can get and then we overpay them so we cant get rid of them.

That trio also battered teams into submission, people forget that whether it was Suarez, Sturridge or Sterling they were all match winners also and were equally unpredictable in the way they played and at times unplayable. In fact it’s a shame and travesty that we didn’t win the epl when we should have and that would’ve defo put a different slant on the debate

As stated, additionally, I bet if some watch a rerun of that season vs this, they would have different thoughts. It’s really difficult to think anything but the current.

That being said let’s at least wait till end of season before talking a judgement. Unfortunately we all know that injuries have taken there toll with Sturridge but Suarez is still going strong and it would be awesome to think that Firmino can continue to become a prolific goal scorer as well as contributor season after season Time will tell:

I like the idea of Luiz in midfield, he can lack discipline, but he can play so if fit yes he is in my side if not Drinkwater. Rudigers pace rather than Cahill, Moratta up front. The problem is you can only have either Willian or Fabregas. I would tend to go with Willan in a 3 4 3 as we are at home. If you play Fabregas Barca will run off him and he does not have the pace tp respond, maybe sub for last 20 minutes.

I don’t think Fabregas and Kante will be deployed. but even if they are deployed. i suspect Conte will tell our wing backs to stay. which will give Christen to join the midfield at a times. we may deploy 5 4 1 when they have the ball. and 3 5 1 1 when we have the ball. very simple. if Conte picks Fabregas i think he knows what he is doing. and he is paid millions to coach this team.

If Cesc plays we would almost certainly play 5 in midfield, Luiz has been injured for a while and I doubt he will be fit enough for the bench.

Tough call for Conte Ampadu in midfield would be a massive call so presumably it would have to be Drinkwater. Having said that taking Pedro off at ht suggests he may start which would suggest 4 in midfield. Not long until we know for sure.

Massive game, massive test against a team unbeaten in La Liga just hope we put in a performance.

I am quite optimistic about this game. I read today that Conte and his team have been watching Barca for over a month now to identify defensive weaknesses so hopefully he will get his tactics right

I think that Hazard is looking forward to this game, and the second leg, and based on Fridays performance for me,
ugg classic short leather boots United will walk the league next season
Willian has to start

Cannot play Fabregas with Kante on their own as Kante will get overrun due to the deficiencies in Fabregas defensive capabilities but if we fill the midfield do we detract from our own attacking capabilities.?

Currently I think that Giroud looks fitter than Morata so would be inclined to start with Giroud but knowing that Morata will feature so he can give his all for the first 60 70 minutes. If we do go with Giroud then we also should mix up our game and play to his strengths as well but not just lumping into the box

The United Way of Hastings will move its office to a new location in Hastings during the week of Jan. 22.

UWH has been in the former First National Bank building on Second Street West for over 10 years. The existing building changed ownership in 2014. With the expected usage of the building location, to complement the redevelopment of the Hudson Sprayers building across the street, UWH leadership knew that an office move would be forthcoming.

“As we began discussing the needs of a new office space, leadership considered several options such as purchasing an existing building, constructing a new building that would allow for meeting space and rentals by other groups, continuing to lease office space, and sharing space with other nonprofits,” UWH Executive Director Mari Mellick said. “We wanted to ensure that decisions were based on what will work best for the UWH’s delivery of services and impact on the community, what makes sense for UWH’s growth and evolvement, and how to achieve the necessities in a space while keeping leasing costs at a minimum.”

UWH had been looking at office space in the downtown area and learned that the Meyer Co. building was being renovated. As UWH discussed the space with the building’s new owner, it became clear that the space would be an excellent location. According to Mellick, the location and newly renovated space will allow UWH to better serve the community by improving its efficiencies along with raising the awareness of the work that UWH does and the impact it has in the Hastings area.

The UWH office will be closed the week of Jan. 22 for its office move. Beginning Jan. 29, the UWH will be located at the Meyer Co. building, 113 Second St. E., Suite 102, Hastings. UWH’s telephone number will remain the same, 651 438 3337.

The UWH is an independent United Way that has worked for over 50 years serving Hastings and the surrounding rural communities within Independent School District 200. Its mission is to build partnerships to improve the lives of people in our community. Donations are accepted year round. 29, the UWH will be located at the Meyer Co. building, 113 Second St. E., Suite 102, Hastings.1 / 2

ugg children United to compensate people on flight when man dragged off

men ugg boots United to compensate people on flight when man dragged off

CHICAGO United Airlines sought to quell the uproar over a man being dragged off a plane by announcing on Tuesday that it would no longer ask police to remove passengers from full flights and would compensate customers who were on the flight when the man was removed.

In an interview with ABC Morning America aired Wednesday, United parent company CEO Oscar Munoz said he felt watching video of the man being forced off the jet. He has promised to review the airline passenger removal policy.

Munoz, who leads United parent company, apologized again to Kentucky physician David Dao, his family and the other passengers who witnessed him being taken off the flight.

is not who our family at United is, he said. will never happen again on a United flight. That my promise. the future, law enforcement will not be involved in removing a paid, seated passenger, Munoz said. can do that. an effort to calm the backlash, United also announced that passengers on United Express Flight 3411 would be compensated equal to the cost of their tickets. United spokeswoman Megan McCarthy said Wednesday that the passengers can take the compensation in cash, travel credits or miles.

The flight was loaded and preparing to leave Chicago O International Airport on Sunday when the man was dragged off. Video shot by passengers showing the man bloodied face went viral on social media, prompting a storm of protest.

Also Wednesday, a Chicago alderman said representatives from United and the city Aviation Department have been summoned before a city council committee to answer questions about the confrontation at O Airport.

Alderman Mike Zalewski said he did not know who will represent the airline before the Aviation Committee, but Munoz has been notified of the hearing scheduled for Thursday.

Chicago Aviation Commissioner Ginger Evans will also speak.

Munoz called the incident a failure and said United would reassess its procedures for seeking volunteers to give up their seats when a flight is full. United was trying to find seats for four employees, meaning four passengers had to deplane.

It was at least Munoz fourth statement about the confrontation.

After the video first emerged,
ugg children United to compensate people on flight when man dragged off
he said the airline was reaching out to the man to this situation. later on Monday, his tone turned defensive. He described the man as and belligerent. Tuesday afternoon, almost two days after the Sunday evening events, Munoz issued another apology.

one should ever be mistreated this way, Munoz said.

The passenger was identified as Dao, a 69 year old physician from Elizabethtown, Kentucky.

Attorneys for Dao filed court papers Wednesday asking the airline and the city of Chicago to preserve evidence in the case. Those documents are often the first steps toward a lawsuit. His legal team planned to hold a news conference Thursday to discuss the matter with reporters.

Airport officials have said little about Sunday events and nothing about Dao behaviour before he was pulled from the jet that was bound for Louisville, Kentucky.

Likewise, the Chicago Aviation Department has said only that one of its employees who removed Dao did not follow proper procedures and has been placed on leave. The department announced Wednesday that two more officers have been placed on leave.

No passengers on the plane have mentioned that Dao did anything but refuse to leave the plane when he was ordered to do so.

The event stemmed from a common air travel issue a full flight.

At first, the airline asked for volunteers, offering $400 and then when that did not work, $800 per passenger to relinquish a seat. When no one voluntarily came forward, United selected four passengers at random.

Three people got off the flight, but the fourth said he was a doctor and needed to get home to treat patients on Monday. He refused to leave.

That when three Aviation Department police officers boarded the plane. When Dao refused to leave his seat, one of the officers could be seen grabbing the screaming man from his window seat and dragging him down the aisle by his arms.

uggs for men United Steelworkers push to see better enforcement of safety laws on 25th anniversary of Westray

The United Steelworkers presented plaques to each of the six municipalities in Pictou County on Monday night in Stellarton, to recognize their role in endorsing the union’s campaign for better enforcement of the Westray Law. Shown are Stephen Hunt and Alain Cotreau of the United Steelworkers, VJ Earle representing Trenton, Jim Ryan representing Pictou, Clyde Fraser representing New Glasgow, United Steelworkers national director Ken Neumann, Robert Parker representing the Municipality of Pictou County, Danny MacGillivray representing Stellarton, Roger MacKay representing Westville, former Steelworkers national director Lawrence McBrearty, and Sylvia Boyce, Steelworkers’ health and safety co ordinator for Ontario and Atlantic Canada.

The first of those municipalities were the six located in Pictou County, and the union recognized them Monday night for their leadership and endorsement, presenting plaques to the towns of New Glasgow, Pictou, Stellarton, Trenton, Westville and the Municipality of Pictou County.

“You started it,” said Stephen Hunt, the USW director for western Canada. “We’re immensely proud of the work that you did in your community to fight back.”

The Stop the Killing, Enforce the Law campaign began three years ago, and honours the 26 miners killed when the Westray Mine exploded 25 years ago. It aims to save lives and make corporations more accountable through increasing the number of charges and prosecutions of those responsible for workplace deaths.

FULL COVERAGE: Remembering Westray: 25 years

The campaign’s goal is to pressure and educate Crown attorneys and police to investigate, charge and prosecute workplace deaths as possible criminal acts.

Ken Neumann, national director of the USW, said when Bill C 45 was enacted in 2004, they believed they had won a great victory. However, in the years since, the union has been disappointed with the results, he said, noting that 11 prosecutions have produced few convictions in the country.

“Our theory is, if you kill a worker, you go to jail,” he said. “We mourn for the dead and fight for the living. We want to make sure these people didn’t die in vain, and make sure these things never happen again.”

Neumann said the USW rejects the notion that workplace deaths are the price of business. “People should have right to go to work safely.”

The campaign asks governments to educate, train and direct Crown attorneys and police officers to apply the Westray amendments of the Criminal Code of Canada, to hire dedicated prosecutors who are given the responsibility for health and safety fatalities, and to achieve greater co ordination among regulators, police and Crown attorneys so that health and safety regulators are trained to reach out to police when there is a possibility that charges are warranted.

Sylvia Boyce, USW co ordinator of health and safety for the Atlantic region, said in Nova Scotia, British Columbia, Manitoba and Alberta, steps have been taken in this direction.

“We’re asking governments to provide the support and resources, to look at every workplace death through the criminal lens the way any other death in society is.”

What is Bill C 45?

Bill C 45 is federal legislation that amended the Canadian Criminal Code and became law on March 31, 2004. The bill established new legal duties for workplace health and safety, and imposed serious penalties for violations that result in injuries or death. The bill provided new rules for attributing criminal liability to organizations, including corporations, their representatives and those who direct the work of others.

Why was Bill C 45 (Section 217.1 in the Criminal Code) created?

Bill C 45, also known as the “Westray Bill,” was created as a result of the 1992 Westray coal mining disaster where 26 miners were killed after methane gas ignited, causing an explosion. Despite serious safety concerns raised by employees, union officials and government inspectors at the time, the company instituted few changes. Eventually, the disaster occurred.

After the accident, the police and provincial government failed to secure a conviction against the company or three of its managers. A Royal Commission of Inquiry was established to investigate the disaster, which made 74 recommendations in 1998. The findings of this commission led to Bill C 45.

The Army Special Operations Command and Special Forces Headquarters are at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. In some cases, USSOCOM has operational control, but Special Forces (and other special operations forces) are usually attached to geographically Unified Combatant Commands.

Special Forces have a core set of seven missions, and may carry out other related duties.

, while less often used operationally today, remains the conceptual core around which Special Forces skills are built. government organizations, such as the Central Intelligence Agency, may be the specialists in these secondary areas[2]Personnel selection and training

Those selected for Army Special Forces Training come from a number of different places: conventional army units, civilians(newly enlisted go through a program called the “X Ray” program), other branches of service, and from Special Forces Detachments (Those enlisted in Special Forces must re complete the training to become Special Forces Officers).

All those attempting to become Special Forces must go through something called “selection.” Once a man has been “selected” for Special Forces Training, he is permanently reassigned to Special Forces Training Command for the duration of training.
