From the news sheets: "A new web service is making it easier for university laboratories and research centres to showcase their expertise and facilities to businesses seeking research partners. Navigator is a searchable online directory of research centres at universities, colleges and hospitals across Canada that are open to collaborating with industry." OK, but it's worth putting this story against this one from the Gauntlet: Research versus teaching: a sessional story. Although fully qualified PhDs, sessions do the teaching so preofessors don't have to. They "receive wages considerably lower than those of a tenured or tenure-tracked professor. The U of C stopped handing out health benefits to sessionals July 1, 2007."
