Ten years ago Sin(X) City was rife with crime and villainy, but the government commissioned a renowned mathematician to devise an equation to solve it once and for all. Thus was created the Anti-Crime Equation, and evil was thwarted for good. But when a transferred detective is brought onto a mysterious suicide case, he must travel to the underbelly of the city to investigate.
Will the city collapse and swallow our handsome detective whole?

NØCTURNE – a mini Cirque du Soleil
“In a town forgotten by time, our lovers meet under the light of the setting Sun, the strains of a lone violin herald the arrival of The Night and the story of NØCTURNE begins. The Lady in Red awakens, her sights set on the young man, a spell is cast and the lovers are separated.
In this little corner of the world, we find a kaleidoscope of characters: real and fantastical as they seek to find what is lost, in a place full of wonder and endless possibilities.
NØCTURNE is a creative dance and movement-based collaboration between The Movement and Dance Society (USU) and The Sydney Uni Gymnastics Club. Together with aerial arts company Wild Spirit Production, NØCTURNE fuses various dance styles such as Classical Ballet, Contemporary and Hip Hop with circus and acrobatic acts to tell a tragic tale of love and sorrow under a vast starry night sky.”
Thanks to everyone who came on the Cruise, we hope you had an excellent night! To relive the memories, or become overwhelmed with jealousy and regret for not coming many, many photos are available on our Facebook group wall. Our next big event is Bucky Ball which will be held on Saturday 22nd of September, for more information watch this space!
On Monday 13th August SciSoc will be hosting an information session in the Isabel Fidler Room of Manning by our sponsors Optiver, they will be telling you about their graduate opportunities (especially concerning those with a background in IT) and what it is like to work at a company like Optiver. There will be lunch fully catered for those who attend the talk, and it will be all completely FREE. If you didn’t catch that there will be FREE FOOD. Your interest and support would be greatly appreciated.
Register your interest at the Facebook event here.
SciSoc hopes to see you there!

For those of you who don’t find a 20+ hour week at uni intellectually stimulating enough, Sydney Ideas (http://www.facebook.com/sydney.ideas) are holding some Sciency talks in the First Week of Semester:
1 August – The Modern Commercialisation of Science is a Passel of Ponzi Schemes
2 August – China, Climate Change and Sustainability: spins, facts and realpolotik
Both seem excellent and thought provoking. SciSoc hopes to see you there!
The Labcoat Pub crawls are back and earlier than ever. Which means that assignments and exams aren’t a feasible excuse for not drinking. So join SciSoc for a drink … or several.
Labcoats are a recommended pre-requisite (although we won’t hate you if you’re a Physics person and don’t own one). Permanent Markers still welcome, though stick to labcoats and NOT toilet doors!
Like last time we’ll meet at Hermanns at 6pm. Then it’s Lansdowne, Broadway lounge, Broadway bar and anywhere in between. Check out the Facebook event here!
This semester our bookstore will be open form 11am to 1pm Monday to Friday. We have books for loads and loads of subjects all at bargain prices. If you have books to sell, come buy and I hope we can help you find a buyer.
