INTERNeX New’s

IX-News-Logo.pngSince it is affecting all of us, public transport is definitely a topic worth talking about. As you might have heard and experienced in the past, the situation is not absolutely perfect at the moment. Many of the operators are not happy about the conditions they are currently working under.

Long story short:
Mostly, time schedule are very tight and won’t leave space for breaks during busy days like these. So if there isn’t any agreement with the Coast Mountain Bus Company by tonight, there will be a strike starting tomorrow morning, obviously affecting everybody using public transport. Certainly not everything will stop driving by then, but it’s most likely to experience delays as well as cancellations. Therefore, please stay updated and find potential alternatives, to get wherever you need to go, in time!

Cheers,

Latest Olympic Medal Count

So i’ve been trying to keep up with all the Olympic events but as you know the schedule each day is just packed making it nearly impossible to keep up. So to make your guys’ lives easier you can keep referring to our blog or facebook page for constant Olympic updates. For now i will give you the latest medal runnings…

1) Coming in first place is surprise surprise The United States of America. They have a whopping total of 18 medals so far. Here is a break down; they have 7 bronze medals, 5 silver and 6 GOLD…with the latest gold coming in last night by Evan Lysacek in the Mens figure skating event.

2) Germany is just trailing close behind the US with a total of 11 medals; 3 bronze, 4 silver and 4 gold.

3) 3rd place goes to Norway with a total of 8 medals; 2 bronze, 3 silver and 3 gold.

4) Now Canada has managed to keep its fourth place standing but now shares it with France since we are tied at a total of medals; 3 gold, 3 silver and 1 bronze whilst France has 2 gold, 1 silver and 4 bronze medals. Hopefully we can start to take the lead but i am highly doubtful that we will ever be able to catch up to the States…let’s see though!

Olympic Update

So during the Olympics you can expect to find daily updates on the medal situation concerning all countries not just Canada. Our blog, our facebook page, even twitter will keep you guys in the loop in case you don’t have time to watch all the events. So far Canada is in fourth place, tied with Norway, at a total of 5 medals. We have 2 gold medals, 2 silver and 1 bronze…so not bad at all! But i know we can do even better then this, just you wait and see lol. Yesterday we managed to get yet another gold medal and Maelle Ricker just blew it out the park with her fantastic finish in the ladies snowboard cross. She was well ahead of the rest of her competitors so it was an amazing win for us. Way to go Canada! And another one of our latest medals was won by Mike Robertson, who if you ask me totally looks like a younger Hugh Grant haha sorry got a little side tracked there. Anyways everyone was placing bets saying that he would for sure win gold. He managed to lead the majority of the big final, but sadly landed short on one of the rollers, which allowed the reigning Olympic gold medalist Seth Wescott of the US to pass him. Wescott ended up crossing the finish line just inched ahead of Robertson. But second place is certainly nothing to cry over…Congrats Robertson!

New INTERNeX PuB NiGHT Location

Hey everyone, just wrapping up my last few tasks before out PuB NiGHT. But i have some good news for you guys…we have a new location! I’ve gotten a lot of really great feedback from you guys and have decided to have our new location at Malone’s Bar & Grill. This bar is located at 608 Pender Street and is a great student hang-out since it is close to all the downtown language schools. We will be meeting up at this location on Monday Jan. 25th at an earlier time 0f 7pm  just because we have heard that it can get pretty busy early and we do not want to run the risk of anyone not getting in. So hope you all can make it! and keep checking our facebook and blog page for more updates.
