    Okay, it's not an actual baby. It's the new news outlet from Mohawk College for students and the community.

    I've been given the task of developing an online (and possibly print) publication for Mohawk College journalism students and need help deciding on a name. The school already has a newspaper that's run by the student association. This one will be apart of the school (not the student association) and 2nd/3rd year Journalism students will be creating content for it in class assignments.

    So...here's the front runners so far.

    The Scroll
    The Steel Scroll
    The Talon
    The Steel Talon

    I tried to incorporate Hamilton's steel image as well as the hawk (schools logo) in the name. I kinda like the irony of "the scroll" for an online publication. It's also throwing back to early forms of communication/media.

    Thanks :D

    the smoke signal

    combines both the smoke generated by steel factories and pays hommage the roots of your schools name.

    ^^^ Brilliant. Plus, it is also an information medium.

    Thanks for the help :)

    I'm not sure. I know a few Noels, but not close enough friends with them that someone would make a reference.

    On the weekends I work at Sizzle/Koi in Hess village, if that helps.

    A part of the school, or apart from the school?

    Noel is a girl...and owns a pig? Not me then.

    Yeah she owned one of these ugly things and it had it's own bedroom.


    Just for the record and to break it down, lol... I wasn't calling your idea a shitty one "Toilet paper", I meant since Hamilton smells like a "toilet" in the hot humid weather, you could call the paper "The Toilet Paper"

    that's supposed to make it better?

    as a current Hamiltonian, I like The Smoke Signal :)

    smoke signal is great one

    id suggest "the reserve"

    but that could offend people

    Isn't my fault Hamilton smells like a shit hole. I live in Scarborough, and Scarborough is a shit hole too. Feel better?
  21. OwenThomas

    I really like "smoke signal" too, but I have a feeling that may also offend people. I'll see what the program director thinks.

    Down to... The Scroll & The Smoke Signal.

    Now I need to figure out how to give Derek cred for it...

    Have you been downtown Toronto? It smells equally as bad as the north end Hamilton by the factories.

    ya but Toronto is awesome so it's worth it.
  23. Musical Rush

    Musical Rush TRIBE Member

    I'm in Scarborough(on the border of Pickering) who cares about downtown Toronto. Other then Atlantic packaging over on Midland, Scarborough doesn't smell that bad. Unless you're talking about the dead corpses found in parks like Morningside Park, that could create a bit of a stink.

    But you have to use the Mohawk word for smoke signal, otherwise it's pejorative.

    Hamilton is a fucking cesspool (At least below the mountain).

    The only good spot is joeys house.
