The warning signs have all been there. #BillC-51 is a non negotiable! It does nothing to protect Canadians and hands over the power and control over to those already in power. The Conservatives and Liberals are on the same page with this bill. This bill must go! It cannot become Canadian law.
 
Bill C-51 is not only unconstitutional but it violates our charter rights, and this book explains why. Check it out and keep up the fight to ‪#‎KillC51‬ by taking action and sharing KillC51.ca/?src=gplus
Canada is "getting it wrong" in its war on terror, enacting laws that are both unconstitutional and fail to keep the country safer, an upcoming book charges.

Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper is certainly the worst one in my lifetime! What he has been going for to Canada is horrible! Read this article and have a look back at what he's done.

Do you want him back as PM?

Corruption and selling your country off to a even more corrupt government.

It's your right #Canada!
 
Dear Canadian friends. Please remember to vote. It you don't vote, you can't whine about how bad your government is, and seriously, who doesn't love to have a good whine.

Really... Show up or shut up.

The Internet and access to the Internet is NOT like cable TV! What #Videotron is proposing is not good for any Canadian.
 
Videotron wants the power to hand-choose which mobile streaming apps and services are more expensive than others. If we don’t speak up, the Big Three will soon follow suit.

I've seen and held punch cards, but never used it myself. Same with reel-to-reel tape!

Hit that +1 if you've used one of these before and reshare if you've used all.

I still have a box of punch cards and I have a working reel-to-reel tape recorder.

Might take a little work in memorizing the algorithm, but looks pretty interesting.
 
This is an interesting method of memorizing different passwords for different systems and services.
Passwords are a bane of life on the Internet today, but one Turing Award winner has an algorithmic approach he thinks could make them not only easier to manage but also more secure.

Even in Vancouver this is something to be aware of.
 
The grandmother holding the infant pushed her way into the tiny elevator in Rome's main train station with us. Close behind were her two adult daughters, one of whom immediately burst into a torrent of Italian. She appeared to be asking us for directions.

Wow! A real working 3D printed jet engine. This thing would be unimaginable to make at this scale only a few years ago but because of 3D printing and remote control electronics, this can be done. Awesome!
 
This is a triumph of 3D print model making and engineering. This person has made a scale replica of a Boeing 787 Dreamliner General Electric turbojet engine. It illustrates the principles of turbojet propulsion by using an electric motor as the turbine. It even has a fully functional mechanical reverse thrust system, exactly like the real thing. I'm in awe of how cool this thing is.

It all ended with a Kodak moment...
 
A pile of rubble, a cloud of dust, and a mighty... ho-hum!!  The implosion of Kodak’s Building 53... the disappearance of what was once one of the most powerful companies in the world!

The once thriving and extremely busy 250,000-square-foot plant, was reduced to 1,500 tons of steel and concrete. A business that took over 100 years to build was gone in less than 20 seconds.

I cannot imagine how bad it is in their home country for people to be so desperate to leave their home country.

Sad to hear that the local deli I've been going to for years even as a kid is closing. :( New towers coming up in the area and I guess the land lords are selling the properties for development. Can't blame them for doing so as the market is hot.

Probably the last time we're getting the yummy goodness from the International Sausage House. A Greater Vancouver favorite for many years! I'm going to miss the smell.

Yeah. It was sooooooo convenient having this deli here. So sad. Heck, there are people who travel in from Langley to this deli because of their product!

Thanks for the tip +Bruno Walter​.

Well, you definitely don't come here for the decor or service. The food makes up for it though! It's been here for years and I remember coming here as a kid. Remember, Chinese food is always best when shared with others. The more people, the more variety you can get.

It's the PNE! Playland is always fun. Plenty of rides for the little ones and classic rides like the old wooden roller coaster for the big ones. The Star Trek exhibit is neat for trekkies, but photos not allowed in the exhibit. Lots of costumes, models and facts about Star Trek. Even have a timeline to put all the different series in sequence. Can have a long line to get in, so get there early. At least they show Star Trek movie while waiting.
