Hey did I share this with you guys over the summer??

http://www.ainc-inac.gc.ca/ai/mr/nr/m-a2008/2-3032-eng.asp?p1=209557&p2=6122

I wrote that (under the supervision of my manager) ^_^ That's where I worked as a Junior Communications Officer for my co-op placement over the summer. I'm going back for my 2nd co-op this winter semester - I'm hoping they'll teach me how to make an actual communications plan, so I'll be able to plan out strategies for getting out info for the Minister. Cool, eh? I'm considering this place for my first job after I graduate in 2 years, if I decide not to immediately continue as a full-time grad student ^_^

(you should be able to access it since it's a government site...... but if not, let me know!)

It works fine for me.

That is pretty neat! It was an interesting read, even though I don't know of the company or companies your article was referring to. Though it was well thought out and typed professionally.

It's great when the people in charge allow you to take on more responsibility for them such as something like this. It gets a bit hectic hoping that it is worthy since they put a lot of faith in you. < Don't read this thinking I'm talking about your article.

Well, it was actually really easy to do - since it was for my co-op placement (it's like an internship), it was part of my job to work on little announcements like that one, among other things. The board announcements, and most other government media files like this, pretty much follow a formula, so it wasn't difficult once i had figured it out. Plus there are about 7 levels of approvals that each document goes through, so some documents get edited a LOT before they can be churned out in to the public. We have high standards, LOL! Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) is a Government of Canada Department which works to support the Aboriginal people of Canada (i.e. First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities). So I think, working there, I'll be able to learn more about Canada and it's hidden history, while doing some good for the people, and putting the skills I've gotten for my degree (writing and communications skills) to good use at the same time! What do you think?

I think it's great, history is interesting, especially when new discoveries are made. I think you are doing good by shedding light on forgotten or not so well known history.

That's my plan for making The American Civil War animation. If I ever earn my degree and people interested in aiding with it lol. There's so much that I've learned about the time during the war by myself. History books water out the history so much that it's paper thin. I'm not sure if it has to do with race issues or the fact that it was a an awful state that the United States was in. Even so history should not be pushed aside, we can all learn from it, besides there's some courageous men and women from that time who deserve many respects from their fellow Americans.

Yeah that's exactly how I feel.
Also, since I'm an immigrant, I'm not fully immersed in Canadian Culture, which is so incredibly diverse anyways. But I really want to know more about Canada's First Peoples - they were here even before the French and English settlers came around. They're the original people of Canada, yet they've been pretty much shunned and impoverished - I mean, some caucasian people are still very racist against Aboriginal people even today, which is awful. And they have such a rich history; they're very diverse in their cultures, traditions and languages. I'd like to know more about people like Louis Riel, and all sorts of other Aboriginal leaders and revolutionaries and wise-people :D I feel that I wont be able to say I know Canada without knowing about the Aboriginal aspect of Canadian culture...... I'm hoping I might be able to learn an Aboriginal language like Mohawk or Ojibwe or Cree or Inuktitut too!!!

So do you plan on using your English major to research and show the public the forgotten history of the first settlers/natives? That would be really interesting to either read an historical book or literature book about something like that.

I wouldn't mind doing research - but Id have to have a history major for that. Unless I base my research on Aboriginal Literature to try to get at the history through that. But if I decide to continue working for the Government, I'd using my English Major as a writer to write official Government documents like that board announcement in the link I put up there. Researching and learning about the Aboriginal peoples would be a personal project for myself, that's all. If I do go in to research though, I'll stay in University and get myself a PhD in Shakespeare and Medieval Lit., and become a professor or something like that, probably. I really have no clue what I should do with myself once I graduate - I don't know what direction I should take myself in!! It causes me many sleepless nights just thinking about it!

"Allow me to explain the problem science has with religion." The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand.
"You're a Christian, aren't you, son?"
"Yes sir," the student says.
"So you believe in God?"
"Absolutely."
"Is God good?"
"Sure! God's good."
"Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?"
"Yes."
"Are you good or evil?"
"The Bible says I'm evil."
The professor grins knowingly. "Aha! The Bible!"
He considers for a moment, "Here's one for you. Let's say there's a sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?"
"Yes sir, I would."
"So you're good!"
"I wouldn't say that."
"But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn't."
The student does not answer, so the professor continues.
"He doesn't, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Hmmm? Can you answer that one?"
The student remains silent.
"No, you can't, can you?" the professor says. He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax.
"Let's start again, young fella. Is God good?"
"Er...yes," the student says.
"Is Satan good?"
The student doesn't hesitate on this one, "No."
"Then where does Satan come from?"
The student falters, "From God."
"That's right. God made Satan, didn't he? Tell me, son. Is there evil in this world?"
"Yes, sir."
"Evil's everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything, correct?"
"Yes."
"So who created evil?" The professor continued, "If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil."
Again, the student has no answer.
"Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things, do they exist in this world?"
The student squirms on his feet. "Yes."
"So who created them?"
The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his question, "Who created them?"
There is still no answer. Suddenly the lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom. The class is mesmerized.
"Tell me," he continues onto another student. "Do you believe in Jesus Christ, son?"
The student's voice betrays him and cracks. "Yes, professor, I do."
The old man stops pacing, "Science says you have five senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Have you ever seen Jesus?"
"No sir. I've never seen Him."
"Have you ever felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt your Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or God for that matter?"
"No, sir, I'm afraid I haven't."
"Yet you still believe in him?"
"Yes."
"According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your God doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?"
"Nothing," the student replies. "I only have my faith."
"Yes, faith," the professor repeats. "And that is the problem science has with God. There is no evidence, only faith."
The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a question of His own. "Professor, is there such thing as heat?"
"Yes," the professor replies. "There's heat."
"And is there such a thing as cold?"
"Yes, son, there's cold too."
"No sir, there isn't."
The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The room suddenly becomes very quiet.
The student begins to explain...
"You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don't have anything called 'cold'. We can hit up to 458 degrees below zero, which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowest -458 degrees.
"Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total absence of heat. You see, sir, cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it."
Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom, sounding like a hammer.
"What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as darkness?"
"Yes," the professor replies without hesitation. "What is night if it isn't darkness?"
"You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light, but if you have no light constantly you have nothing and its called darkness, isn't it? That's the meaning we use to define the word. In reality, darkness isn't. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?"
The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him. This will be a good semester. "So what point are you making, young man?"
"Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed."
The professor's face cannot hide his surprise this time, "Flawed? Can you explain how?"
"You are working on the premise of duality," the student explains...
"You argue that there is life and then there's death; a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it. Now tell me, professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?"
"If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man, yes, of course I do."
"Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?"
The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes where the argument is going. A very good semester, indeed.
"Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a preacher?"
The class is in uproar. The student remains silent until the commotion has subsided.
"To continue the point you were making earlier to the other student, let me give you an example of what I mean." The student looks around the room, "Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the professor's brain?" The class breaks out into laughter.
"Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor's brain, felt the professor's brain, touched or smelt the professor's brain? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, with all due respect, sir."
"So if science says you have no brain, how can we trust your lectures, sir?"
Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at the student, his face unreadable. Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man answers, "I guess you'll have to take them on faith."
"Now, you accept that there is faith, and, in fact, faith exists with life," the student continues, "Now, sir, is there such a thing as evil?"
Now uncertain, the professor responds, "Of course, there is. We see it everyday. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil."
To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light."
The professor sat down.
