Again, there's no Gazette today

If there were, here is the Positions Available listing it would contain:
Intermediate Systems Analyst, Data Processing, USG 9/10: University degree preferably in Computer Science, Engineering or related business discipline is required. Equivalent training and experience will be considered. In depth knowledge of large ORACLE relational data base and transaction processing environments. Excellent communication skills, both written and oral, as well as proven organizational abilities are essential.

The university welcomes and encourages applications from the designated employment equity groups: visible minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and aboriginal people. For more information call University of Waterloo 885-1211 ext. 2524.

The Positions Available are posted to UWinfo each week by the human resources department, and circulated to departments in the weeks the Gazette isn't appearing. (The Gazette will be appearing regularly again starting next Wednesday, June 7.)

All-candidates meeting is today

Candidates in the June 8 Ontario election will be appearing at 12 noon today in the Theatre of the Arts, for an all-candidates meeting sponsored by the Federation of Students and counterpart organizations at Wilfrid Laurier University and Conestoga College.

Expected are candidates from the three local ridings: Waterloo North, Kitchener, and Kitchener-Wilmot. Jane Pak, president of the Federation, advises that "We have an additional highlight. The executive director of OUSA (Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance) will be attending the forum along with a few executives from some of the other OUSA member schools. We hope to have a good turnout."

Two notes from the secretariat

Some notes on club meetings

The UW branch of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute offers a video presentation tomorrow, at 11:30 a.m. in Davis Centre 1304. It's "Take the World from Another Point of View", starring iconoclast-physicist Richard Feynman.

The Equestrian Club will meet tomorrow at 6 p.m. in Campus Centre room 223. On the agenda will be plans for a trail ride, scheduled for Sunday. New members are always welcome ("no experience required") -- call Charles Nichols at 725-6249 or e-mail cnichols@ophelia.

An organizational meeting for a Turkic Student Association will be held tomorrow, time and place not yet fixed.

On the warmest day of the season

It's the first day of employer interviews for the fall co-op work term.

An "investment and technology forum" starring Patrick Lavelle, chairman of the Federal Business Development Bank, runs from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. in Davis Centre room 1302.

A Centre Stage dance show continues in the Humanities Theatre.

Larry Smith of the economics department speaks tonight at a "partnership forum" sponsored by the Waterloo County board of education (7 p.m. at Forest Heights Collegiate Institute).

Tomorrow on the Davis Centre lawn

Says Suzanne Poole from the development office: "You guessed it, tomorrow is the UW Community Campaign Picnic and we have an excellent lineup of entertainment for you. We have a Bouncy Acoustic Band, the UW Juggling Club, and a Line Dancing performance and demonstration. Come out and join in all the fun and excitement. It is a great opportunity to see and meet with many people from across campus. As in previous years we will be accepting a loonie contribution for lunch going towards scholarships. So far the weather forecast looks fantastic and we can't wait to see you there!" The picnic runs from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. in support of the Community Campaign.

You aren't going to believe this

"Normally this wouldn't be very exciting news," says Linda Norton, director of graphic services, "but one of our staff members won a two-week trip to Halifax this morning in the middle of a meeting." Huh? Well, Carol Donaghey, of the copy centre in the distance education office, had entered a contest sponsored by CHYM radio, and the call to say she was a winner came while the graphic services staff were holding a training session on copyright. The news comes about 36 hours after another staff member in the department, Darlene DeVries, won more than three-quarters of a million dollars in Lotto 6-49. Says Norton: "Our new motto is 'Get lucky with Graphic Services'."
