McGill takes 12th spot in global ranking

Eric | November 8, 2007

McGill, arts buildingAs the Globe & Mail reports, McGill University has just been ranked on place 12 among the world’s top 200 universities just published today by the London Times. It is further ranked first on the Canadian level. My former university, RWTH Aachen, now “elite university”, at least made it to place 203-304. (I think they really have to do something about their image.)

The study put emphasis on “science programs, the strong contingent of international students and faculty, student/faculty ratios, and publications by faculty and graduate researchers”. I am proud to have contributed at least some few of those publications. Hopefully more to come… And I agree – McGill is a great place to be!

Canadians playing hockey in Afghanistan

Eric | November 8, 2007

Canadian hockey player in AfghanistanSpiegel Online published this photo two days ago on their website as picture of the day. It shows the shadow of a Canadian hockey player standing in the goal at Kandahar, Afghanistan. Does he not really look like King Kong? Anyway, it’s good to know that even there, the Canadians keep up their traditions.
