08:40 am - A Non-Linguistic Aspect of the Chinese Marketing Writing
Making a commercial letter it's important to keep it concise and actionable.

You will likely spend less time on email if you follow the Chinese marketing letter accepted format.

The correct manner of greeting and conclusion phrase, disposition of the signature and indentions contribute to your conversation building.

The templates of the Chinese marketing correspondence you can easily find in the Chinese marketing correspondence textbook for self-study
“Supersonic Marketing Chinese Book 1” by Polina Shinkina

11:28 am - Grad studies in BioSci
Hi guys,

I'm seriously considering UCalgary for grad studies in the dept of Biological Sciences (specifically evolution/ecology). Anyone here a grad student or undergrad in this department? What do you think of it? How are the facilities? Do you have any major gripes/raves?

I'd be coming out from Vancouver. Because it's so damn expensive to live here, I've had to commute at least 1.5 hours each way to UBC. How's the housing situation in Calgary? As in, is it possible to find a pet-friendly 1br under $1000 near campus? I've been looking at craigslist, but I'd really appreciate some first hand opinions.

Also, any neighbourhoods to avoid?

Thanks! I appreciate your help!

I'm looking for a ride down to Calgary from Edmonton on Tuesday, October 7th, anytime (including early morning). I will just have a one duffel bag and my sleeping bag, so I wouldn't take up much room.

I'm also looking for a ride back from Calgary to Edmonton on either Thursday, October 9th or in the morning on Friday, October 10th.

I'm willing to chip in up to $25 for gas each way. Please give me a shout if you're going those directions!

11:00 pm - SPC Card for UofC students!
Hey guys, just wanted to share a deal I got recently:  all UofC students can get an SPC card (student price card) which gives you discounts at a bunch of places like Bluenotes, Burger King, Second Cup, etc.

I thought it's a pretty good deal cause it's $8.50 and you get a free $10 gift card for Esprit, Guess, Jean Machine or Best Buy.  You can buy it online at http://www.spccard.ca/onlinestore.aspx?ref=$10shopcard , or you can buy it at one of the stores (check the site for the store list).

I hope this helps! For those that already have the card, share some of the deals you've gotten!

10:29 am - Student Loans
If you have a student loan that requires the university to complete & submit an Appendix 3 (or whatever it's called in other provinces), you may want to check that the UofC has accurately entered your tuition and textbook amounts. My student loan assessment came through this week, and the university put down the tuition & book amounts as $0. When I called the fees office, they said that this has happened to others this year as well.
So just a heads up - if your student loan funding is a lot less than expected, it may be the university that's bollocksed it up.

The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young.  GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.


The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution


Fill out the survey at:  www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.


While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the United States.
