This week in Imprint — Jan. 9, 2015


Hey readers! Here&#39;s a few highlights of the first Winter 2015 issue of Imprint. As always, you can find Imprint issues across campus, or check us out at <a href="http://www.uwimprint.ca/">http://www.uwimprint.ca</a>.


<strong>A UW student will wake up $60,000 richer today</strong> &mdash; Because sometimes good things do happen to people (just probably not to you), one UW student has won over $60,000 in prizes as part of the Student Life Network&#39;s &ldquo;Canada&#39;s Luckiest Student&rdquo; contest. The prizes for the contest include $20,000 to finance post-sec tuition, free textbooks and groceries, and even a trip to Peru and Europe for two. The winning student&#39;s name won&#39;t be released for a few more weeks, so it&#39;s possible you&#39;re much luckier than you think! But again, probably not.

In addition to the musical acts coming to Maxwell&#39;s that have yet to be announced, the venue also offers karaoke nights every Tuesday, where you can perform songs alongside the Maxwell musicians, house band performances on Wednesdays, and &ldquo;Boots N&#39; Beers&rdquo; every Thursday (for the more country-inclined).

<strong>UW professor receives funding to find out why your boss is such a grump </strong>&mdash; Douglas Brown, a professor at UW, has received over $246,000 from the Government of Canada to aid in his research on terrible bosses. Brown is studying how unhappiness can be caused by poor managers (which contributes to around one-third of reports of workplace unhappiness), and just what makes bad bosses so bad. He hopes his research will be able to alleviate workplace stress by facilitating a more nurturing workplace. It is unknown how his research will impact the <em>Horrible Bosses</em> movie franchise.

In 1997 and 1999, Bertoia led the Warriors to Yates Cup victory, and hopefully his history of winning will rub off on the current men&#39;s football team.
