Controversial speaker takes the "Pipe" to Militant Islam

Daniel Pipes, the controversial Middle East expert who has advised several United States presidents and is a frequent columnist for The National Post, gave a lecture entitled "The Threat of Militant Islam" on campus yesterday.

CAMPUS & CULTURE

Cheers to beers but be prepared

The Germans call it "katzenjammer" – the wailing of cats. The Norwegians call it "jeg har tommermenn" – workmen in my head. The Italians call it "stonato" – out of tune. The Swedes call it "hont i haret" – pain of the roots of my hair.

Despite the various translations of the word "hangover," the feelings associated are universal. Whatever you end up calling it, some Sunday mornings, you can't help but wish you were dead.
