Talking Back To The Body: Starter Resources On Body Image

January 16, 2018 • Written by

Between Instagram filters and Photoshop, people have no idea the storm a psyche takes to merely look in a mirror and think hey, I look pretty good today. Girls begin dieting at younger ages, often listing the fear of being fat above the death of a parent. It starts as a passing remark (“You would have a prettier face if you lost weight.”) or hearing more about appearance than accomplishments makes a person think having a more acceptable outside will make a more worthy human being.

The Healthy Minds, Healthy College initiative, represents one way to take on the negative voices or to find help dealing with eating disorders. If upcoming group sessions are not your thing, make an appointment to see a counsellor either here or off campus. In between talking about body image issues, get empowered with these resources in *print, digital or video.

*Note: Visit our Information Desk for help refining your search for body image as it relates to men, nursing, LGBT, community services, or another topic.

The case against sugar

With expert science and compelling storytelling, Gary Taubes investigates the history of nutritional science which, shaped by a handful of charismatic and misguided individuals, has for a hundred years denied the impact of sugar on our health. He exposes the powerful influence of the food industry which has lobbied for sugar’s ubiquity – the Sugar Association even today promoting ‘sugar’s goodness’ – and the extent that the industry has corrupted essential scientific research. He delves into the science of sugar, exposes conventional thinking that sugar is ’empty calories’ as a myth, and finds that its addictive pleasures are resulting in worldwide consumption as never experienced before, to devastating effect. The Case Against Sugar is a revelatory read, which will fundamentally change the way we eat.

Forget this Network! Reconnecting to RRCWireless

January 4, 2018 • Written by

Wireless at RRCThe Red River College Library receives plenty of inquiries about the wireless networks on all our Winnipeg campuses. Our goal is to help all our library patrons, though we always have to be clear that we do not control or manage the wireless networks here at RRC. At the Library we are users, just like you!

Were you forced to change your password? Forget this Network!

forget

After you change your password, make sure that any of your devices, such as cell phones or tablets, also have your new password in their settings.

Q: How do you do update your wireless password?
A: Forget this network!

Just ask your device to “Forget this Network” and then setup the network fresh.

Lockouts

When you ask your device to “forget this network”, always keep in mind that it was likely trying to actively connect to the wireless with a bad password. This would have caused the college’s wireless system to lock out your device. So, when you reconnect with your username and your new password it may still not connect. It is probably locked out!

Wait 30 minutes after you “Forget this Network” for your locked-out device to be re-allowed to connect to RRCWireless.

Laptops – Mac and PC

If you have a laptop, you may not need to “Forget this Network”.  You can likely just login with your new password when your computer challenges you for credentials.  However, you may still have to wait 30 minutes for your laptop to cease being locked out.  Just put in your new password, and wait for the lock-out period to expire (30 minutes).

Face-to-face Assistance

We offer help at our Library Helpdesks:

Holiday Reading – Award Winning Books

December 12, 2017 • Written by

It’s always nice to relax at this time of the year, and there’s no better way to relax than to dive into a good book. During the upcoming holidays, why not take some time for yourself and read one of the many award winning books that are available in RRC’s Library.

To view the present and past winners, come visit the Library Window Display at the Notre Dame Campus.

You may also view a complete list of all books in our display. If you see something you like, just come to the Notre Dame Campus Library and inquire at the Circulation Desk.

Here is a small sample of some of the excellent titles, all from the Short List of the 2017 Scotiabank Giller Prize awards:

Minds of Winter – Ed O’Loughlin

Bright moments from the distant past spring up beside dark moments from the present, things hidden – a death, a gift, a lost clock – come briefly into view and then disappear forever. In Minds of Winter, Ed O’Loughlin’s brilliant story of polar exploration, time itself is an Arctic: a mysterious dimension of sun craze and apparitions, chance encounters and destiny. The mechanism of this novel is fascinating to observe, its implications are deeply human. In O’Loughlin’s work, our desire for knowledge, our obsession with the past, our grappling with life itself … all of it is generously, wittily on display.

http://icarus.rrc.ca/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=130481

 

Bellevue Square – Michael Redhill

To borrow a line from Michael Redhill’s beautiful Bellevue Square, “I do subtlety in other areas of my life.” So let’s look past the complex literary wonders of this book, the doppelgangers and bifurcated brains and alternate selves, the explorations of family, community, mental health, and literary life. Let’s stay straightforward, and tell you that beyond the mysterious elements, this novel is warm, and funny, and smart. Let’s celebrate that it is, simply, a pleasure to read.

http://icarus.rrc.ca/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=130471

 

 

Son of a Trickster – Eden Robinson

Eden Robinson’s Son of a Tricksteris a novel that shimmers with magic and vitality, featuring a compelling narrator, somewhere between Holden Caulfield and Harry Potter. Just when you think Jared’s teenage journey couldn’t be more grounded in gritty, grinding reality, his addled perceptions take us into a realm beyond his small town life, somewhere both seductive and dangerous. Energetic, often darkly funny, sometimes poignant, this is a book that will resonate long after the reader has devoured the final page.

http://icarus.rrc.ca/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=130547

 

 

I Am a Truck – Michelle Winters

French or English, stick or twist, Chevy or Ford? Michelle Winters has written an original, off-beat novel that explores the gaps between what people are and what they want to be. For a short book I am a Truck is bursting with huge appetites, for love and le rock-and-roll and cheese, for male friendship and takeout tea with the bag left in. Within the novel’s distinctive Acadian setting French and English co-exist like old friends – comfortable, supple to each other’s whims and rhythms, sometimes bickering but always contributing to this fine, very funny, fully-achieved novel about connection and misunderstanding. And trucks.

Library Window Display: Transgender Day of Remembrance

Library Window Display: Transgender Day of Remembrance

November 20th is Transgender Day of Remembrance. It is a day that was established to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. The Transgender Day of Remembrance raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people and also gives a moment when people can stop and memorialize those who have died by anti-transgender violence. (Source: http://www.transgenderdor.org/)

Visit our the Notre Dame Campus Window Display

To increase awareness on this issue, Notre Dame Library Services has set up a window display at Notre Dame Campus where you can find information about Transgender Day of Remembrance.

As well, the RRC Library has many LGBTT* themed items in its collection. Check out some of the items that are currently on display in the Notre Dame Campus window display.

John McCrae’s War: In Flanders Fields

John McCrae's War: In Flanders Fields

This feature documentary profiles poet John McCrae, from his childhood in Ontario to his years in medicine at McGill University and the WWI battlefields of Belgium, where he cared for wounded soldiers. Generations of schoolchildren have recited McCrae’s iconic poem “In Flanders Fields,” but McCrae and Alexis Helmer—the young man whose death inspired the poem—have faded from memory. This film seeks to revive their stories through a vivid portrait of a great man in Canadian history.

A War Story

A War Story

Based on the diaries of Canadian doctor Ben Wheeler during his internment in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp during World War II, this feature-length docudrama is a glowing account of the spirit and its will to survive physical and mental suffering. The film is comprised of newsreel footage, interviews and dramatic re-enactments.

Liberation of Holland

In 1944, Canadian soldiers of the First Hussars Regiment began their battle through Nazi-occupied Europe. They forged ahead into Holland to end the war in 1945. Seventy years later, we join serving soldiers & veterans as they visit the Netherlands on a pilgrimage – to understand what liberation truly means.

https://www-nfb-ca.athena.rrc.mb.ca:2047/film/liberation_of_holland/

Fields of Sacrifice

This 1964 documentary returns to the battlefields where over 100,000 Canadian soldiers lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars. The film also visits cemeteries where servicemen are buried. Filmed from Hong Kong to Sicily, this documentary is designed to show Canadians places they have reason to know but may not be able to visit. Produced for the Canadian Department of Veteran Affairs by the renowned documentary filmmaker Donald Brittain.

PTSD: Beyond Trauma

The image of the tormented veteran unable to transition from war zone to home front is well-known. But the focus on the military’s struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) obscures a simple reality: PTSD hits more civilians than soldiers, and more women than men. But when so many people experience sudden loss, near-death, violence and abuse, why are only some haunted by PTSD while others are more resilient? Promising new discoveries raise key questions about the faultlines of fear and memory, and the roles geography and early development may play in predicting personal responses to trauma.

Broken Heroes

Every Remembrance Day, we honour the sacrifices made by those who were killed or physically injured serving their country in wartime. But, what of those with the crippling but invisible wounds of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)? In this Fifth Estate documentary, Gillian Findlay introduces us to three Canadian soldiers who served in Afghanistan. Jeff, Matt and Dave all speak candidly about the flashbacks hurtling them back to the war zone, grief for dead comrades, their ongoing battles with addiction, even suicide attempts. Also featured is General Romeo Dallaire, well known for his very public battle with PTSD after witnessing genocide in Rwanda. Using the military’s own arguably conservative estimate, as many as 2,000 soldiers returning from Afghanistan could experience PTSD. The urgency to find a treatment has never been greater.

http://curio.ca.athena.rrc.mb.ca:2048/en/video/broken-heroes-971/

 

Ordeal by Fire

ordeal by fire

Canada’s heavy military role in World War I (60,000 dead in a population of eight million) transforms its society, its politics and its place in the world. The horror, bravery and sacrifice of trench warfare are evoked in Canada’s great battles: Ypres, the Somme, Vimy Ridge, Courcelette and Passchendaele. The domestic consequences of Canada’s war effort are also wrenching – the conscription crisis of 1917 marks a low point in English-French relations. After the war ends, labour revolts in Winnipeg and across the country raise fears of a Bolshevik insurrection. The return to stability in the mid-1920s lasts only briefly, as the crash of 1929 plunges the country into economic chaos.

THRIVE with Red River Library: Stress-Related Resources

November 6, 2017 • Written by

Red River College Library wants students and staff to succeed both academically and with regards to their mental health. Look for our resources as part of THRIVE Week (November 6-10) as the Healthy Minds, Healthy College initiative showcases activities to help people navigate shorter days and incoming deadlines. For more resources, check out our new Library Guide.

 


 

Believe it or not, stress does serve a purpose for humans. At some point, we needed the combination of cortisol and adrenaline to either find something to eat or risk starving or run away as something wanted to eat us or it will risk starving. These days the Sabre Tooth Tiger has gone extinct while our to-do lists sadly can’t find itself on the endangered species list. While none of us want to make friends with stress, it’s worth understanding what happens to the body under the constant stresses in day-to-day life like assignment deadlines, grading papers for feedback, all while dealing with family or loved ones.

The key to understanding stress? Finding information on what it does, how to keep it under control, and applying it to our everyday life. Red River Library has a number of resources to tackle a vast subject, some might say stress-inducing, but a few key titles may help to make stress work for as a benefit than as an impediment.

Yet understanding how stress works can help us figure out a ways to combat it and how to live a life free of the tyranny of this contemporary plague.
