Irony on the tracking that web sites with articles on privacy do. If you ever want to see who is tracking you check out Ghostery.

QuickParts, would be so productive if we could share them.  So good yet so bad.

We’ve been doing a lot of research into crapware and malware lately, and one of the most troubling things we found was that Google was serving up search results for open source software… with crapware-bundling ads at the top. Now it appears they’ve ended this policy and are pointing to the real download at the top.

How about a community for your peers, no teacher left behind.

I just liked on FB.  The timeline features a quote:
"One of the most important things we can do for young children is to MODEL the kind of person we would like them to be."  Carol B Hillman

I received an Ipad for the new year and have loaded apps to share with my grandson who just turned 2.  ScratchJr was a real winner with his animal noises and birthday cake candle blowing animation.  http://www.scratchjr.org/

I am with the Tyee on this one. The government should no more be trying to hook us on gambling than narcotics. 
Province's perversely parallel goal: raise amount each 'player' loses.

An eclectic crowd works out here. As they are in the heart of Victoria's financial district, this is where a number of Victoria's top financial advisors work out. They have a number of classes - yoga, spin, "fight club", etc, the instructors are always good. The equipment is fine. Lots of classes to pick from. The mens change room is completely cramped. The décor could use some work, very dark ceilings with overhead lights make you feel a bit like you are in a basement, and its difficult to read the plates on the dumbells. You will see people working with trainers, people leaping up the stairs, people pretending to fight punching bags, or lugging their yoga matts to the studio. and lots of tatts on the staff. It is hard to find a clock, the music is unfortunately what you would expect, and it would be great if they would paint the ceiling white instead of black.
