J. Robert Oppenheimer called the first atomic bomb “technically sweet,” yet as he watched it explode in New Mexico in 1945, he also thought of the line from The Bhagavad-Gita: “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” Theoretical physicist, scientific director of the Manhattan Project, and a man whose name has become synonymous with American nuclear science, Oppenheimer was and still is a controversial figure. Following the seventieth anniversary of the Manhattan Project, Lindsey Michael Banco’s new book examines how he has been represented over the past decades in biographies, histories, fiction, comics, photographs, film, television, documentaries, theater, and museums. Unpacking how and why Oppenheimer is depicted, this book offers insights into the rise of nuclear culture, the figure of the scientist, and how we think about the relationship between history, imagination, science, and nuclear weapons.

Lindsey Michael Banco is an associate professor of English at the University of Saskatchewan. He is also the author of Travel and Drugs in Twentieth-Century Literature (2009).

The Slightly Off-Center Band evolved from a group of friends and acquaintances back in the 90’s that would gather together a few times a year and jam into the wee hours.   Since then we’ve been playing gigs for a wide variety of special occasions. We’ve also played business functions such as the annual outdoor BBQ for the Medicine Shoppe on 33 rd and the annual Spotlight on Seniors event at TCU Place.  A highlight for the band was playing at the famous Manitou Beach Danceland. We have also enjoyed performing for the Brain Tumor Research Foundation at their Heading for a Cure and Spring Sprint events. Our jam band roots from over twenty-five years ago has given us a love for all kinds of music-- blues, rock ‘n’ roll, folk, country, old time, and waltzes-- from way back when to contemporary songs that strike our fancy.

Busking was her way for the first bit: 2008-2011 Fringe Festival and then as mid 2011 came along, indoor venues were opening up its doors to welcome Natalie in. Armed with just her guitar, Natalie managed to win over the audience slowly but surely and released her pop/rock/folk debut EP Try Being Yourself in December, 2011 produced by Efren Pereira Jr. and Eli, For Short. Natalie filmed an episode of the local showcase show "Stripped Down", and she is currently in the Top 10 on the Reverbnation singer/songwriter chart for Saskatoon.

Running the Riders

The Saskatchewan Roughriders were mired in mediocrity, a decent football team that couldn’t advance to the Grey Cup as the franchise worked its way out of financial distress and tried to reconnect with its fan base. In 2004, offensive lineman-turned-educator Jim Hopson was hopeful that the Roughriders directors would hire him as the team’s first full-time president and CEO. He believed that the team, with its incredible fan base, could become a successful business that consistently posted strong annual profits while playing in and winning multiple Grey Cups. And it happened. After a decade under Hopson’s leadership (2005 to 2015), the Roughriders became the Canadian Football League’s strongest franchise, appearing in four Grey Cup games (winning twice) and selling more team merchandise than the other eight CFL franchises combined. They obliterated their debt and posted a record-setting profit of $10.4 million after winning a hometown Grey Cup in 2013, which has been described as the biggest moment in the 105-year-old team’s history.

A former offensive lineman with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Jim Hopson grew up in Regina before playing junior football with the Rams and advancing to a career in education as a teacher, principal, and administrator. After a decade at the helm of Rider Nation, he retired from his Riders duties early in 2015.
