WHERE HAS ALL THE FAT COME FROM – The drawback to distance education that few students talk about, but many know all too well – the bulging waistline. How do you fight the flab that accumulates over months of home study? Shannon Maguire has some suggestions:.

IS THERE A DOULA IN THE HOUSE – What is a doula, you ask? More than just a midwife, a doula provides the support and knowledge that expectant mothers need to make the most of the birth process, and the important first weeks of parenthood. This first part of our two-part interview reveals the history of the doula, and her place in our modern society.

TREES – Living far from home reveals all that you took for granted. Wayne Benedict recalls the trees of British Columbia and the quiet but vital role they play in the lives of BC residents.

Where you live:

AU students are situated all around the world, and on every continent [well, probably not Antarctica, but you never know!]. A reader suggested that it would be interesting to receive articles from AU students about the place where they live – sort of a city profile. If any reader wants to send in a brief article about their home town, city, or country, contact voice@ausu.org for details.

Council reporters wanted

The Voice needs reporters who are able to write clear, critical and balanced reviews of what goes on at AUSU council meetings. Meetings take place about once a month, and may be attended by teleconference from almost anywhere in the world. Inquire with the Voice editor at voice@ausu.org if you would like more information on this opportunity. Did I mention we pay?

Tutor Bios

I’ve been asked why I never run bios of AU tutors in The Voice. The reason is that AUSU already does these. Check out the AUSU tutor page at: http://www.ausu.org/tutor/index.php. A new tutor bio will be posted this week. If you know of a tutor you would like profiled, write Mac McInnis at mmcinnis@athbascau.ca.

Student Bios

Student bios are another issue. We do run those, and love to get them! If you are an AU student, willing to be profiled in The Voice, contact me at voice@ausu.org.
