Getting ready for the big day: For three decades, the McGill Book Fair has been a campus institution. Organized by the Women's Alumnae Association and Women Associates (staff and wives of) the fair has raised about $950,000 to date, each year funding over 30 scholarships and bursaries. Donations for this year's fair totalled about 1,200 boxes' worth. Good cause, good books, great prices -- what more do you need? Go to Redpath Hall on October 17 and October 18, from 9 am to 9 pm.

Molson gets a makeover

McGill's venerable Percival Molson Stadium, which has played host to Queen Elizabeth, Sting and the Grey Cup, will be receiving a major facelift over the next two years, thanks in part to funding from the city and from the Montreal Alouettes.

Tragedy's trajectory

During a round table discussion, McGill experts recently wrapped their minds around the ramifications of a day we'll never forget.

Bad birth control?

Dr. Shree Mulay has serious reservations about the safety of a sterilization method that is being heavily promoted in developing countries. She is putting together a research effort designed to give the women who are the targets of the approach an opportunity to speak their own minds.

A cellular cop that does its job too well

A molecular police force stands ready inside us to get rid of proteins that are misbehaving. Problem is this cop can't tell the difference between mass murder and jaywalking and when it wipes out some proteins, we're the ones who pay a devastating price.

The contradictions of Canadian Jewry

They get along with everyone else, but stand apart. They're at the forefront of new trends, but hold carefully to their traditions. They fret over assimilation, but seem to be thriving. According to sociologist Morton Weinfeld's new book, Canada's Jews can be a perplexing bunch.

Talking to patients is a virtue

Sure the medical technology has never been better, but how are doctors and patients getting along with one another? How does McGill train young doctors to build constructive relationships with their patients?
