The most wonderful time of year is exactly ONE WEEK AWAY (Nov.16th).

So come one, come all to the GIS day extravaganza *queues fireworks*. If Georeferencing McGill Campus for 3 hours in your 201 lab has left a bad tasted for GIS, I highly recommend attending to change your mind on the subject/way of life :)

Check out the new and updated schedule for the day detailing the events, and speakers (including



2. (PAID) Geography Tutoring positions


It's a dream come true geographers. Tutors are needed for GEOG 200, GEOG 216, and GEOG 308. Regardless of previous tutoring experience (although it's better if you have) if you have received an A or A- in any of these courses, email  the tutoring service, and check out the poster for ore info! 
P.S. It pays a whopping $15 an hour!



3. Prof. Moore Nitrogen Symposium
More like Symposy-FUN! Our faculty's own Tim Moore is giving a talk along with other specialists (including guest speakers from the EPA, and other Universities). The symposium is on Nov.18th from 2:30pm - 7pm at 3450 McTavish (mind your step!) and will talk about how humans have influenced the Nitrogen cycle more
than the carbon cycle, and possible mitigation methods.
Check out the detailed schedule for more information on speakers and topics the talk will entail!



4. Grad Campfire Talk Series

Thinking about pursuing a graduate degree at McGill or elsewhere, though are unsure about what this entails or possible types of research projects?

Come find answers to these questions every Thursday in BH426 from 11-12 (Starting Nov.24th, and held on a bi-weekly basis onward) with the new and exciting 'GRAD CAMPFIRE TALK SERIES'! Check out the attached poster  (which is also pinned in the MUGS lounge) to understand more about unique format this will be held in.
PS. If you're not in it for the Grad talk, at least come for the (Non-metaphorical) Marshmallows(!!) and goodies that will be provided. 



5. MESS Coffee House + Jar Swap

Come join your environment pals at the MESS Coffee House & Jar Swap for some warm cuddles, delightful beverage, and sweet sweet tunes to fill your soul!

Musical & poetic performances, warm beverages (mulled wine, anyone? tea n' coffee?), autumnal eats, and a dinner JAR SWAP (where you bring a jar of your most lovely home-cooked meal, and trade it for a jar of  another persons home-cooked-meal) 

The event is Pay what you can (suggested $5) (That includes beverages & baked goods, performances, and good company!) and is BYOMug and cutlery event. 

This is happening Tomorrow (Nov. 10th) at 7:30PM at Ecole House
(3559 Rue University) 

Check out the Facebook Event for more info on this unique event!



6. Mildly Depressing Map of the Week

So as y'all know, Trump god elected last night! And something  everyone (despite party affiliation) had last night, was a fascination with maps! I'll try to keep this as non-political as possible, by just posting my personal favorite done by the New York Times, which always makes great live maps.

7. Cool Thing of the Week

Continuing onthe election craze, looks like we'll be receiving new guests to Canada (or so they think). This includes Brian Cranston, the star of Breaking Bad (where he's a meth manufacturer.... though i'm sure he'll leave that side of himself back in the U.S.)! Click the image to see in more detail who's coming up North.



So there you have it,

In a pretty stressful election/midterm week, hoping you have you're all keeping morale (GIS day will be sure to cheer you right up). Catch a jar of food with MESS, listen to Prof. Moore blow your mind about Nitrogen... Keep at it Geographers :)
