Radio, Television, Sports, and Entertainment.


On A Roll -- Radio Talk Show on Disability.




Cultural Entertainment.

For foreign, artistic, and classical movies you may want to check out Wormwood's Dog and Monkey Cinema -- Schedule. I am not sure whether this should be under "Culture" or under "Entertainment" so I am listing it under both topics.


NHL Players' Association.

Hi there, sports fans. I am not a sports fan and think that the expression, "professional sports" is an oxymoron BUT for your edification you may want to visit the NHL Players' Association . I list them as they were a sponsor of the "Ek's File" dedicated to trying to save a life. Nice going, guys!

University of Alberta Karate Club Homepage.

To some, it is a sport. To others, it is a way of life. The University of Alberta Karate Club is a member of the Ohtsuka Amateur Karate Foundation. Traditional karate training at its finest! Learn more about karate at "http://www.ualberta.ca/~karate/" [NEW URL]. If you have previously bookmarked the site at the old URL, "http://www.ualberta.ca/~gwenzel/", you may want to update your bookmarks.

Quad Rugby.

Can any other sport be as exciting as Quad Rugby? Well, maybe. But not to the GSVU Scorpions. Get the latest league figures and other information from the Netherlands. On the opposite side of the ocean, why not visit the United States Quad Rugby Association? Note that their address has been changed from "http://members.icanect.net/~qrugby/" to "http://www.quadrugby.com" so you might want to change your bookmarks accordingly.
