The course will also give students leaderships and com-munication skills.The course is being offered in collaboration with Dale Carne-gie Training, which offers courses  based on the teaching of American author Dale Carnegie, famous for his book from 1936,  How to Win  Friends and Influence People . “Dale Carnegie, as an organiza-tion, is very excited about the part-nership with Fanshawe College,” said Thomas Otley, senior vice pres-ident of Dale Carnegie Training. “This relationship with Fanshawe College is the first in Canada, and so this Canadian partnership, we  believe, is going to be to the hub for numerous relationships to come.”He says that the relationship be-tween the organization and the col-lege will equip countless lives with the abilities and the skills to be even more successful in their life in their career.“The single most significant thing about this partnership is that there’s visionary leadership at Fan-shawe College,” he said.While Dale Carnegie Training courses have been offered in Can-ada before, it is the first partnership  between Dale Carnegie Training and a Canadian post-secondary in-stitution. “We’re very proud of this prae-torship between Dale Carnegie and Fanshawe,” said Gary Danner, a strategic results partner at Dale Car-negie Training.Danner will be teaching the course at Fanshawe.“I’m a grad of Fanshawe from a few years back, and I believe this is going to beneficial for both Dale Carnegie and for Fanshawe Col-lege,” he said.The classes start on October 28 and will be held every Tuesdays from 6 to 9:30 p.m. until Decem- ber 16. The course will also be of-fered in the winter term. The cost is $1,725 plus HST.

Brent Arsenault of Campus Security Services recom-mends that students use U-shaped locks to secure their bikes. He ad-vises against chain and cable locks as they may prove to be inefficient.He says students should take a  picture and record the serial num- ber, make, model, size and colour of their bikes as it will make it easier for police to identify if ever stolen. He also suggests engraving initials onto a concealed area of the bike.It won’t look good when John Doe gets caught riding a bike with someone else’s initials engraved on it, he said.Arsenault also asks that students not be dismissive of suspicious activities around campus – if you see someone cutting a bike lock, he says, call Campus Security Ser-vices.“We haven’t had any suspects or information come forward at this  point in time, so we’re encouraging students to report all information that they can,” Arsenault said.Fanshawe also has the Secure Bicycle Compound, located just outside D cafeteria. For $5 per term and a $20 deposit, students can lock their bikes inside the fenced com- pound. The compound is guarded  by a camera, and it is also a desig-nated area for smokers, so there are always people around.For more information about the Secure Bicycle Compound, contact Facilities Operations & Sustainabli-ty at 519-452-4401.

Starting this week, Fanshawe’s School of Continuing Education will offer a new communica-tions course in collaboration with Dale Carnegie Training. New Continuing Education business course Over 20 members of the London and St. Thomas Police Services, Fanshawe College and Western University campus police gathered with members of the OPP at Ma-sonville Place for a new haircut on October 18. Cops for Cancer is an annual fundraising charity, which included silent auction items like tickets to a pre-practice with Leafs players at the Air Canada Centre and the add-ed bonus of seeing officers shave their heads for charity.The event is in its 11th year and Fanshawe campus police have par-ticipated in four. The event has raised almost $125,000 according to Krista Kankula, fundraising co-ordinator with the Canadian Cancer Society.Special Constables Brent Arsene-ault and Luke Edwards were at the event, with Arseneault DJ-ing and Edwards getting his head shaved. “My mom lost her battle in 1998, so I do this event for awareness and out of respect for my mother and anyone still fighting,” Arseneault said. Special Const. Edwards also had  personal reasons for the head shave. “My mom was diagnosed five years ago with non-Hodgkin’s Lym- phoma, which is similar to leukemia  but in the Lymph nodes,” he said. “She’s been in remission for three years so I do this for her.”The event also provided in-com-munity experience for Fanshawe students in the Police Foundations and Paramedic programs who helped with donation collection throughout the day. Second-year student Jeremy Van-Bommel also participated as part of the College’s Student Auxiliary unit. He said the event was a way for him to connect with people, show-ing how community policing can help the public, while remembering family lost to the disease.First-year Police Foundations stu-dent Taylor Normandeu volunteered after seeing a friend’s mother diag-nosed with breast cancer. Her friend participated in a local head-shaving event and the action sparked Normandeu into volunteer-ing. She also said she thought the event was a good way to help in the community.The clippers and stylists who made the event possible were Britta-ny Hillier, Angela Sebekos, Nicole  Nettleton and Meghan Boyd from The Cut Above – the salon, which has been participating for 11 years now.With a $1,000 cheque from re-gional branches of National Bank and more than $17,300 raised before silent auctions closed, Kankula said the event had been pretty successful so far this year, while also acknowl-edging those in Blue. “I want to give a general thanks to the officers for their 11 years and all who participated.” Cops shave heads for Cancer JERROLD RUNDLE INTERROBANG CREDIT: JERROLD RUNDLE Fanshawe Special Const.

FRANCIS SIEBERT INTERROBANG London Police Services (LPS) will increase patrol on Halloween, which falls on a Friday, as well as the day before and after the holiday, according to LPS media relations officer Const. Ken Steeves. No specific neighbourhood or area will be targeted, he said.While there haven’t be any ma- jor incident on Halloween in recent years, Steeves says the recent nice weather and the fact that the holi-day falls on Friday are reasons be-hind the increase patrol.“Halloween is a time to have fun,” Steeves said. “We’re encour-aging everyone to have fun, do so responsibly.” Increased police patrol on Halloween FRANCIS SIEBERT INTERROBANG CREDIT: FSU STREET TEAM Police encourage students to stay safe and have fun this Halloween.  NEWS 3 Volume 47 Issue No. 10 October 27, 2014  World-famous mentalist and il-lusionist Wayne Hoffman will be making a stop at Fanshawe College on October 29 to share with stu-dents his freaky ability.“I’m coming to rock your cam- pus,” he said.Hoffman started off doing magic as a child, even getting paid to per-form as a teenager. When he started studying psychology in university, he started adding a new element to his magic show.“I noticed that people enjoyed mentalism more than magic,” he said. “They looked at illusions as  just a trick but when I did the psy-chological stuff everybody was in-trigued by it.”“Eventually the majority of my show became mentalism and psy-chological stuff – mind reading if you will.”Hoffman says he’s always been naturally intuitive. “As a kid I thought I was just lucky,” he said. “I realized I was reading people … I think really more so than suddenly learning that I had the ability it was more of a learned ability. I trained in order to do it.” He incorporates sociology, sta-tistics and interrogation techniques.“You find patterns in human be-haviour,” he said. “You’ll notice if you use a certain inflection and ask a question a certain way that this type of person will typically answer this.”He admits he sometimes gets it wrong, however. “I am [wrong] sometimes,” he said. “I’ve had people tell me that actually makes it better because if I were to get it 100 per cent of the time then it would clearly be a trick.”“My audience is very forgiving and I just move onto the next one … Being wrong is part of being a successful mentalist.”When he comes to Fanshawe though, there’s no telling what to expect. Just don’t think rabbit out of a hat.“It’s going to be fun and upbeat,” he said. “But people are going to leave scratching their heads saying, ‘How the hell did that just happen? What is life?”“I’m going to crush people’s sense of reality too.”Hoffman says he gets a number of reactions from his audience too.“I’ve seen it all,” he said. “I want  people to yell and scream and say, ‘WTF’ and everything in between,  but I’ll get people where their jaw will drop and they won’t move.”“If you see something that breaks the laws of reality, you should be stunned.”He’s even seen people run out of the theatre.“The phrase I hear the most is, ‘mind blown.’”Get excited to see Hoffman, Fan-shawe. You’re just his type of au-dience. “Everyone that’s coming wants to have a good time, otherwise they wouldn’t be there,” he said. “The energy is always upbeat … When you’re at a university [or college] everyone’s there to party and that fits my style perfectly.”He knows his job is done when he sees the first reaction from his audience.“Hear the first gasp or have two  people look at each other eyes wide open just stunned,” he said. “You can tell in an instant as soon as you hit the stage and you perform, that moment when the audience – you  just know they’ve left reality.”There are no rules. “If you come to this show, you have no idea what’s going to hap- pen and I promise you, your world will be turned upside down.”Hoffman will perform at Forwell Hall on October 29 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5 and are sold at the Biz Booth.For more information on Hoff-man, visit his website across London are casting their votes on October 27 in the municipal election. The area in front of Oasis will turn into a polling station on that day, but according to City Clerk Cathy Saun-ders, Fanshawe wasn’t srcinally on the city’s radar to be a station.“[Fanshawe] was not our first choice,” said Saunders. “On election day it’s only people who live in that ward [that] can vote in that location. I’m not sure that people who do not go to Fanshawe will necessarily be comfortable going to Fanshawe.”It was a poor voting turnout that srcinally kept Saunders skeptical about putting a poll on campus. “In 2010 the turnout at advance  polls at Fanshawe [were] very  poor,” she said. “I think we only had 40 students vote.”Fanshawe Student Union Presi-dent Matt Stewart was determined to have it on campus. “Over the summer we only had 60 people in residence out of a pos-sible 1,200,” said Stewart. “We still had 30 people out to vote, which I’m pushing as a 50 per cent voter turnout.”“We got [voting stations] back, we’ll just be under a watchful eye. That’s why I’m pushing so hard for this election because obviously having an election poll sitting here on campus both [for the advance  poll] and October 27 is going to be  beneficial for students.”Stewart hopes the convenience factor of having a poll on campus will help with turnout. “If you have students that are having to walk 10 minutes to go to a voting station, no one’s going to go,” he said. “If it’s sitting outside of their favourite eatery on campus then it’s going to be right there in their face.”This is the first time Fanshawe will be a voting station in Ward 3 for a municipal election. Stewart says the FSU has been taking baby steps toward encour-aging students to come out to vote like drafting a letter, which proves residency for residence students.“We’re printing out letters for anyone [in residence] who’s over 18 and we will be putting it in their mailbox and also sending it out elec-tronically,” he said. “[It’s a good idea] because students in residence can’t vote and they don’t have utili-ty bills even if they wanted to.”“Elections for students in this de-mographic is about convenience.”Saunders revealed that advance  poll voter turnout totaled 220. Stewart’s hoping for 400 after vot-ing on October 27.“He better have a pretty good turnout,” said Saunders with a laugh. “He promised he would.”“I’m not going to say we’ve al-ready made our goal,” he said. “I’m not going to back down from the hard work I’ve put behind this … I’m not going to back down even if we get 500. The more voters we get out the better.” STEPHANIE LAI INTERROBANG STEPHANIE LAI INTERROBANG Voting made easy on campus CREDIT: STEPHANIE LAI Over 200 people came to the advance poll on October 16 to vote. How many will come out on October 27? The FSU, in association with the Canadian Student Alliance, launched the second year of the Yellow Umbrella Project in Forwell Hall last Tuesday. Ending the stigma surround-ing mental health and starting the conversation about mental health on college campuses are the proj-ect’s main goals. These goals are depicted in the emblematic yellow umbrella that provides shelter for students from mental health stig-ma, enveloping them in its hopeful and happy hue. The campaign can be engaged on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram using the #CSAYUP or #FSUYUP hashtags.In Forwell Hall, students were en-couraged to stop and talk about men-tal health and share their thoughts,  both positive and negative. Positive thoughts were written on a bright yellow banner for others to read, whereas negative thoughts were written on yellow balloons, which were filled with helium and released Tuesday afternoon. Jessica Brook, VP External and Academic Affairs for the FSU and a member of the promotions team for the Yellow Umbrella Project, ex- plained the importance of sharing. “Students have so many posi-tive thoughts, so let’s write them on [the banner] so that people can see them,” Brook said. “If people are having a bad day, they can look at the wall and maybe it will help  brighten them up.” “[The balloons allow students to] release their negative thoughts, get them out of their body [and] relax.” Students were also given the op- portunity to release their stress by walking a bubble wrap catwalk, an activity that didn’t fail to put a smile on the poppers’ faces and filled For-well hall with a pleasant crackling sound throughout the morning. Pro-motional stress balls and buttons were also given out to students to combat stress and help keep the Yel-low Umbrella message alive.Brook highlighted the importance of the services offered at the college to help those with mental health is-sues: Counselling and Accessibil-ity Services (F2010) provides free  personal counselling to students dealing with issues such as stress management, relationship difficul-ties, underachievement in school, and specific mental health condi-tions; the Addictions Center helps students dealing with substance, gambling, and other addictions; and the Testing Centre provides assis-tance to students with disabilities in writing tests and assignments.The Yellow Umbrella Project will return next semester, and any-one wanting to get involved is en-couraged to visit the FSU Office (SC2001) to share ideas for the next awareness week; volunteer oppor-tunities are also available through contacting Anthony Sawyers, VP Entertainment ( and Cheriss Marson, VP Internal ( Yellow Umbrella Project shades students from stigma JAMES DUSTEN INTERROBANG CREDIT: ALLEN GAYNOR Students shared their positive thoughts for others to enjoy in Forwell Hall during the Yellow Umbrella Project awareness campaign last week.
