January 17-28 :: Annandi Merhai’s Bollywood – Images and Themes
The artist’s subjects and inspiration are drawn directly from the Bollywood films she loves. From portraits of film stars like Sushmita Sen and Arjun Rampal, to exploring the love stories, mother figures, gems and colourful bazaars that appear in many Bollywood films, Merhai presents a diverse cultural exploration through the lens of her artistic practice.
Merhai’s passion for art and fascination with anthropology and the Indian diaspora are combined in a substantial thematic body of work. Her work has been exhibited at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre, Canadian National Exhibition (as part of Masala Mehendi Masti) and the Art Gallery of Mississauga, and on campus in the Gales Gallery and the Eleanor Winters Gallery.
Dates: January 17-28 @ 10 am till 4:30 pm Venue: Gales Gallery, 105 Accolade West Building, York University, Keele Campus, Toronto

A recent study has concluded that women are twice as likely to accept a date from a stranger if they have just heard a romantic song. Should all the men be paying attention to the Muzak playing in the coffee shop or the bar before springing the question? Maybe the "right moment" is the moment after what we may consider to be the sappy love song.
The study with the large title of ‘Love is in the air’: Effects of songs with romantic lyrics on compliance with a courtship request was conducted by Nicolas Guéguen, Professor of Social Behaviour at the University of Bretagne-Sud in France. Professor Guéguen indicates that his research interests focus on atmospherics and consumer behaviour and compliance-gaining procedures. I’m not sure what that means but it all sounds important.
Now, how did this study of Mr. Guéguen – Or should I say Monsieur Guéguen? – come to such a conclusion?

Bring the British North America Act back to Canada for display
BringBackTheAct.ca is national, grassroots movement launched by a group of Canadians from all walks of life. It is asking Canadians to support a petition to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the British government to return to Canada the British North America Act – Canada’s *original* Constitution – in time for its 150th anniversary celebrations in Charlottetown 2014, and Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017.
The campaign is the brainchild of Lori Abittan, President and CEO of Multimedia Nova Corporation. Her 52-week Canadian civic literacy/history series The Canadian Experience (http://www.cdnexperience.ca) now running in over 70 multicultural publications (including the Oye Times!), was the inspiration to launch BringBackTheAct.ca to invite all Canadians to help gain access to the basic documents which are the foundation of our nationhood. To enable such historical documents to be entrusted to the Canadian Government and displayed for all Canadians to see will represent the last step Canada takes to finally ‘repatriate’ our Constitution.
