Walking the talk

The Christian Peacemaker Teams organization has reported a surge in inquiries from prospective volunteers since four of its members, including two Canadians, were taken hostage in Iraq on November 26. As the world awaits news of their fate, SFU interfaith centre director Seth Greenham can comment on what motivates non-combatants who put themselves in harm's way to promote their beliefs.


Kong takes Christmas

The holiday season is about to be overshadowed by a giant, as filmmaker Peter Jackson's remake of the movie King Kong opens. Gary McCarron, an assistant professor in SFU's school of communication, specializes in the study of films and can look at the impact of the latest blockbuster, which is already drawing rave reviews for its computer-generated effects. Meanwhile, Paul Budra, an associate professor of English, has followed Jackson's career since his early days and can provide some insight.


Soccer hall o' famer

John Buchanan, SFU's first men's soccer coach, will be inducted into the Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame next April. Buchanan, now retired, can reminisce about his 37-year career during which he coached the SFU Clan to numerous championships and contributed greatly to Canadian and BC soccer. Clan soccer coach Dave Elligott can also comment.
