The 21-year-old disappeared after getting in a fight in September 2014
"DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE Justin IS???"
That frantic Facebook post on Sept. 26, 2014 by Karleen Thibault marked the beginning of a search for her son Justin Rhodes.
Just two days earlier, Calgary Police said Rhodes went to a house party and a fight broke out; Rhodes was the victim and police charged an unnamed 20 year old with common assault. Police ultimately concluded the incident was unrelated to Rhodes' disappearance.
Rhodes left the party in a vehicle but never made it home. At an October news conference, Staff Sgt. Travis Baker said Rhodes asked to be let out at the intersection of Southland Drive and Acadia Drive S.E. at 10:30 p.m. No one has reported seeing or hearing from him since.
Concussion concerns causing a tackling transformation at high school levels
Airdrie Bantam football coach Steve Kemp says football has changed immensely since he played 10 years ago and has seen a dramatic transformation in the way the game is being coached.
Concussions in football have been a rising concern for years and new coaching techniques have been introduced in order for the coaches to teach players new ways to tackle while avoiding injury.
"Back when I started you were taught to put your face mask into the others guy's face mask, you were taught to lead with your head and use your helmet as a weapon," Kemp says.
Market modifiers proposed to the provincial government raises issues of affordability
Post-secondary students now have the highest amounts of debt in the history of the country, according to statistics, but institutions in Alberta may soon see a tuition increase — while critics suggest a lack of financial knowledge and accessibility are already concerns for students.
The results of the market modifiers proposal from Mount Royal University (MRU) to the provincial government were set to be released on Nov. 17, but now the release date is uncertain.
Market modifiers as defined by the University of Lethbridge Students' Union are a tuition increase directed at a specific faculty to bring costs in line with costs from competing university programs. Market modifiers were last used in Alberta in 2009-10 under Minister of Advanced Education, Doug Horner.
Students, industry, and environmental group give Rational Middle Energy Series positive reviews
In Canada's energy capital, Mount Royal University (MRU) is the only Canadian school incorporating an American-produced film series about energy into three senior marketing courses. The Rational Middle Energy Series, produced by U.S. film director Gregory Kallenberg, is also being used by Texas A&M University and California Polytechnic State University.
"They're energy films, they're not kittens playing on the piano or anime, it's something that you wouldn't expect a lot of people to want to download and show their friends. It's an incredibly important issue and we're thrilled by how many people have been able to use it," Kallenberg said.
Edventure Partners, an American company, worked with MRU and Shell Canada to bring the program to Calgary. Shell provided MRU with $3,000 to host and promote a series of events in which students worked with Rational Middle as the client.
