    Vaccination (and anti-vaxxing) is in the news lately after recent measles outbreaks in Disneyland and across North America. Here’s a relevant article about how those who are anti-vax ultimately show they don’t trust a doctor’s education, experience and knowledge which is a *much* bigger issue in that relationship than just the question of whether a parent […]

    After our recent holiday, I was interested in learning more about these mega-resorts (practically mini-cities) operate. This article provides a great overview on this subject, giving a behind-the-scenes tour of the same chain we stayed at in the Dominican Republic but from their Mayan Riviera complex.

  • 05/13/15--20:50: #Flames Final Injury Report
  • All teams have players playing through injury in the Stanley Cup Finals but it’s also fascinating/frightening to hear the exact nature of the injuries once a team is eliminated.  This year’s Flames were no exception.

    It always boggles my mind that human beings are able to design something so intricate and precise yet massive and overwhelming at the same time…

    A Mexican public library uses shelving that doubles as climbing structures. I can hear the lawsuits coming from a mile away if a library tried to do this in Canada but personally I love the idea!

    I wouldn’t say we’ve “put an end to” gun violence in Canada but our numbers (like those in most developed nations) are extremely low compared to the US. There are a whole host of interconnected reasons why this is the case.  But I think one of the largest is the fact that gun ownership is enshrined […]

    Pace went for a trial parkour lesson at Flux School of Human Movement today. Here’s a series of photos of one of the moves they learned – the Lache.

    The NDP has released an effective new ad that highlights some of Stephen Harper’s “friends” – various criminals, fraudsters and cheaters… That’s pretty bad but this ad only highlights the senators (Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin) and other insiders (Nigel Wright) at the top of the Conservative party. There have also been some recent revelations that show […]

    So beginning tomorrow, I’m planning to have a 19 day series of posts with various thoughts and observations about the Canadian Federal Election. My politics are no secret and much of the content will be focused on reasons why the Conservative Party of Canada led by Stephen Harper has to go but I’m hoping I can […]

    Although it looks somewhat like an outtake from the new Star Wars movie, there’s a very serious reality behind Lucify.com’s site that illustrates the flow of asylum seekers from Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East over the past three years.  (via Reddit)

  • 10/28/15--21:22: RIP Koko
  • It’s been a month since we lost our cat, Koko, very suddenly. Although she seemed to have lost a bit of weight in the days preceding her death, we chocked this up to her being outside so much in the nice weather.  She had otherwise been fine with no obvious symptoms of illness.  But then, […]

    So much openness.  From having a very public walk through the grounds of Rideau Hall to Trudeau doing Google Hangouts with school children (what?) before his first Cabinet meeting. It’s another indictment of the Conservatives that having a cabinet where such commonplace things such as having an actual doctor as your Health Minister, a medical […]

    Funny story about a brilliant runner who chooses routes that end up displaying as drawings of penises when mapped online. (This runner also has a Tumblr where she draws other things besides dicks.) When I worked downtown, I regularly walked around Wascana Lake during my lunch breaks.  I guess my route occasionally looked like a penis if you […]

    1. What did you do this year that you’d never done before? One of many secret shames in that I never learned how to downhill ski when I was growing up.  The first year we did a class trip to Mission Ridge in the Qu’Appelle Valley, I was injured and couldn’t go.  Then the next […]

    A recent Saskatchewan arbitration decision which found that it’s a violation of workers’ rights to be safe and free of harassment to be required to wear name tags with their full name is timely given a couple recent events… First, in my end of year mega-post, I mentioned in Question #31 about “My Personal Fashion Sense” that RPL […]
