The adidas University challenge is a bracket-style competition between 19 Canadian universities that are adidas partners. Students vote for their school and the winning school will receive $25,000 for their athletic department.
In the first round, 16 schools with the most votes as a percentage of their student population will advance. Each subsequent week, your school will go head-to-head with another university. The school with ...the most votes as a percentage of their student population will advance to the next round. The process continues each week until only one school is left standing.
The next week, the remaining 8 teams will be matched up head-to-head and so on. This will continue each week/round until one school remains. That school will receive the $25,000 donation to their athletic department.
You can go to http://www.adidasuniversitychallenge.ca/ to vote for U of R today!

Based on campus activities, students are clearly interested in environmental issues and possible solutions to mitigate human impacts on the environment. It can be difficult to separate the rhetoric from the science when it comes to possible solutions for mitigating environmental impacts. The new course is tailored to introduce non-science majors to the importance of microbes in society.
Microbes are critical to the proper function of the biosphere, and microbiology can be used to introduce non-majors students to the science behind many environmental issues facing society. Students will develop critical thinking skills for evaluating the environmental issues to help separate the rhetoric from the facts.

1993 Parliamentary Bill C-27.7, the Child Day Act.
Canada became a signatory to the United Nations Convention of the
Rights of Child (CRC) on May 28th, 1990 and ratified the Convention on
December 13th, 1991.
In 1989 a unanimous House of Commons resolution passed to end child
poverty in Canada by the year 2000. Yet today, depending upon whose
statistics one refers to, between 10 to 15 percent of children still
live in poverty.
Of all the countries participating in the OECD Early Learning and Care
review in 2003, Canada scored amongst the lowest. Furthermore, the
report noted, with the exception of Quebec, Early Learning and Care in
Canada is characterized by "a patchwork of uneconomic, fragmented
services, within which a small *child care* sector is seen as a
labour market support, often without a focussed child development and
A UNICEF report released in December 2008, *The child care
transition, Innocenti Report Card 8* on early childhood care and
education ranked Canada last among 25 developed nations. Canada met only
one of the 10 benchmarks of quality and access proposed in the report as
the minimum standard for protecting the rights of children in the early
