Annual fundraising event for Calgary Counselling Centre held at SAIT
On April 14 at SAIT, a group of Calgarians are hoping to set a record for the "Guinness Book of World Records."
But this is not a hotdog-eating contest. Instead a local karate club is hoping for the largest number of people – 250 – to break boards at the same time.
This is the fourth annual event known as "Break the Cycle" was established to raise funds and awareness for the Calgary Counselling Centre.

Calgary reporter experiments with wearing headscarf
When I was 15 years old, I moved to Canada from Venezuela.
Most people don't think I'm an immigrant because I look Caucasian — I have green eyes, white skin, and straight hair.
My looks have never seemed to affect how people treated me. As far as I know, I have never been discriminated against because of my appearance.
However, I've always been curious as to what it might feel like to be singled out because of what you look like. The problem was I didn't really know how to make myself stand out.

Speakers' event for students fails to attract attention
Despite the recent rash of ecstasy-related deaths, few showed up to hear a talk about drug awareness at Mount Royal University last Thursday.
The room was mainly empty during the event, apart from speakers Linda Scurr of Alberta Health Services' adult addiction program and Const. Tracy Starchuk of the Calgary Police drug unit.
Starting last July, ecstasy pills containing paramethoxymethamphetamine (PMMA) has been implicated in the deaths of nine people in Calgary and another five in B.C. Last February, authorities also saw six deaths and countless hospitalizations.
