U of O and McGill students create tool to filter hateful language

Two students at the University of Ottawa (U of O) and McGill University have created a tool to filter homophobic, racist, and other hateful content online. Nikola Draca, a third-year statistics student at the U of O, and Angus McLean, a third-year engineering student at McGill, worked together to create the extension called Soothe, which filters out unwanted content online. Soothe works as an extension on the Google Chrome web browser where a bar pops up at the right side of the screen with various options—homophobic, racist, sexist, transphobic, violent, and sexually violent—allowing the user to choose specifically the type of content they want filtered. Draca said he got the idea because he had a friend in high school who was […]

Hannah Schmidt leading the Carleton ski team

Hannah Schmidt is a third-year criminology student and member of the Carleton alpine ski team, who has now found herself as the team captain and the club’s president.

Men’s hockey splits opening weekend games in overtime

The Carleton Ravens men’s hockey team split their first two games of the season this weekend coming away with one overtime win against the University of Ottawa (U of O) Gee-Gees on Oct. 12 and one overtime loss at the hands of the McGill Redmen on Oct. 14. Carleton, who plays in the fearsome Ontario University Athletics  (OUA) East Division, were expected to have a difficult start as the season opened against the young Gee-Gees and the always contending Redmen. The Ravens are coming off a disappointing 2016-17 season with a first-round playoff exit and the departure of many veteran players. This year marks the U of O’s second season back after the suspension of the men’s hockey program in […]

McGill professor teaches Black Canadian history at Harvard

An art history professor at McGill University is taking her research on Canada’s slave history to Harvard University for the 2017-18 academic year as the William Lyon Mackenzie King visiting professor for Canadian Studies. Charmaine A. Nelson will be taking a year off teaching at McGill to conduct more research  on Canadian fugitive slave advertisements, while teaching courses in Canadian Art and on Visual Culture of Transatlantic Slavery, according to the McGill Reporter. In an email, Nelson said that throughout her career she focused on the representation of Black subjects in historical western art, mainly female subjects. “Since I look at artwork produced in the 18th and 19th-centuries, that has meant that I was dealing with the broader context of Transatlantic Slavery […]
