Want a big ass ham?


Anyone interested in watching presidential candidates perform stupid candidate tricks should check out The Dave Show tomorrow in the University Community Centre's atrium.

At 1 p.m. Dave Tompkins, president of the University Students' Council, will be hosting the show for the second time this school year. "It's a fun way to spend an hour on Thursday," Tompkins said.

Audience members can expect the traditional format of CBS's The Late Show including a top-10 list and a skit involving a "Real Day in the Life of Dave." One lucky winner will also receive a canned ham as a special prize.

Aside from the presidential candidates, guests will include Christine Taylor who will be discussing the Fine Arts Festival, Paul Wallace, head chef at The Wave and James Deans, chief returning officer. A musical guest has not yet been confirmed.

Extended teaching


Maybe their lecturers are exciting or they take extra time out of their day to help you. Either way, if your professor is grade A you may want to nominate him or her for an award.

The deadline has been extended for Western's teaching award of excellence. If you want to nominate your favourite professor, instructor or lecturer you have until Feb. 7.

The award is sponsored by the University Students' Council, the Western Alumni Association and the Bank of Nova Scotia. Students can pick up nomination forms from the USC office, Rm. 340 in the University Community Centre.

Correction


In yesterday's Diversities issue, a photo was identified as part of a story on the Get Ta Steppin' club. The individuals in the photo were actually part of Essence of Step, a show which will be featured in Soul – An Exhibition of Black Artistry to be presented Feb. 8 at the London Regional Art Gallery at 8 p.m.

The individuals in the photo were Jennifer Wanlim, Jackie, Dionne Sinclair, Ingrid Abott and Génivien Simpson.
