Looking into a crystal ball

Psychic or not, Colin Campbell is coming to Western and he plans to predict the future – of the economy and employment that is.

The Canadian futurist and author will present "Future Trends and Opportunities" tomorrow in the University Community Centre's McKellar Room.

Campbell will discuss careers, job search, hiring and future employment possibilities and how education will affect these opportunities, said Bob Klanac, manager of marketing and services for the USC.

In his prediction of economic trends, Campbell will highlight areas where employment will increase, which skills will be sought after and what this means for students in terms of education, Klanac said.

Campbell's lecture begins at noon and admission is free.

Life's a beach

They're young, restless and experiencing the days of their lives. As their world turns, the cast of Concrete Beach, Western's first-ever soap opera, has only one life to live.

The premier showing of Canada's only university soap opera will take place today at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. in the McKellar Room of the University Community Centre.

Created and produced by TV Western and CHRW, the 47-minute show features a cast of approximately 25 Western students, said producer Mary Olchowecki.
