I have written for radio, print, web, and video for various publications. Below are some select pieces from NOW, TRENT Magazine, and Arthur newspaper.
CAMPUS RADIO BACK ON THE AIR AT RYERSON
Three years after losing its broadcast license in a series of implosions at campus radio station CKLN-FM, campus radio is back at Ryerson University.
Radio Ryerson Inc. has obtained a new license from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) December 11 to broadcast at 1280 kHz on the AM dial. Yes, medium wave.
TRENT RESEARCH A-TEAM
Cell enthusiasts Adam Noble and Andressa Lacerda have become the A-Team of cutting edge research at Trent. This summer has been busy for them. Andressa is gathering data and organizing her research on Charcot–Marie–Tooth Syndrome, a hereditary neurological disorder, in order to complete her M.Sc. and her Ph.D. within the next year. Oh yes, and she is also learning about Adam’s research and assisting him with the use of lab equipment.
“Ugh… I’ve barely been outside,” Andressa sighs.
A JEWISH CHILD IN A CHRISTIAN DISGUISE: HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR JACK KUPER
Holocaust survivor, graphic designer, filmmaker, and 1960s ad man Jack Kuper graced the Trent community with his presence on Thursday November 29th 2012 thanks to Lady Eaton College and the History Department. Jack spoke to a packed house as the aisles of Enweying’s room 114 spilled over with students and community members eager to hear the stories of one of the Holocaust’s last living witnesses. As History professor Carolyn Kay said in her introduction, “we should be grateful for the survivors because they give us hope.”
DUDES NOT RUDE, BYLAWS REVIEWED
In an ongoing review process, the City of Peterborough held a public consultation at the Peterborough Public Library on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 about proposed revisions to municipal codes and bylaws concerning active transportation. There was a public consultation in November and revisions were made to the recommended changes based on that process. You can fill out the active transportation survey on the City of Peterborough’s website until February 15 as part of the second public consultation session. After the public consultation period is over, a report will be prepared for Council.
LOCAL TUNES: HELLO BABIES
Local musicians Dave Grenon, Wes Grist, and Bennett Bedoukian are Hello Babies. Formerly named Tender Buttons, together they play a kind of music that combines techniques from a variety of musical traditions including jazz, rock, post-punk and noise. They play music in the same vein as Deerhoof, Joan of Arc, Nihilist Spasm Band and Sonic Youth. Arthur sat down with the trio to talk about their origins, musical tradition, location and business in preparation for their show on Thursday November 15th at The Spill with Commander Goznales and Odium.
