My Collections, Ordered With Descriptions

Phew! So right now Collections don't have a spot for descriptions, nor ordering alphabetically. Here's a Collection of all my Collections ordered from A-Z with a short description of each one.

If you're still unfamiliar with Collections and how they work, you can check out my overview/tutorial on +TECHAERIS
http://techaeris.com/2015/05/04/google-collections-a-better-way-to-share-heres-how-to-use-them/

h/t +Gerwin Sturm for the idea, if you want to mirror this all you have to do is create a new Collection and then share each Collection to the new one and voila! Afterwards, you can share the new Collection to your PUBLIC circles and pin it on your profile for easy access.

TIP: uncheck the "People that have you in circles automatically follow this Collection" while you are filling it with other Collections. Once you're done, re-enable this (should prevent a flood of shared Collection posts in their streams).

Wow... Way to try and buy your seat.
 
Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq announced $64 million for a new Iqaluit port Thursday, but alluded that ensuring the funding remains may be contingent on her re-election as a Nunavut MP.

Um, does that sound like blackmail to anyone else?

Conservative MP Leona Aglukkaq announced up to $64 million for a long-awaited port in Iqaluit Thursday, but added that if she's elected, she'll 'make sure' the funding remains in Nunavut's capital.

I hate these commercials... interesting that it's enticing voters to the Liberal side...

/sigh
The ad is having an adverse effect on NDP supporters as 21 per cent said viewing the commercial made them more likely to vote for Trudeau

What this election will come down to is just how many of the soft conservative voters can be scared away from voting Trudeau. This is why we hear or see these, "Just Not Ready" commercials at least 25 times a day.

It why government departments have quotas on terrorism related press releases and why ministers are ignoring advice from the RCMP and CSIS on the wording and language of these releases.

It is why they have risked everything on big public Ralph Klein style pre-electoral handouts, counting on people turning a blind eye to just how much it will have cost them come tax time.

It is why they don't bother talking about Mulcair and the NDP. They simply don't fear their base will vote for the NDP.

It is why the Sun, Ezra Levant, Lorne Guntner and Post Media bash the Alberta NDP with at least one editorial EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. They fear that Albertans are still hostile towards conservative politics and know that they will never vote for the NDP federally, but enough just might vote Liberal.

The ridiculous part is that no one will counter these ads. Harper had a grinning idiot picture of him in a sweater holding a kitten in many of electoral PR handouts last election. He has never held a real job. He had almost zero experience when he took over his party and his handling of international affairs is exactly WHY we have even the faintest fear of ISIS and other terrorist groups. We should be butchering the man and his record all over the internet, tv and radio and outside of people like us, no one is. 

Keep up the noise. Keep up the fight. Keep posting. Canada and the Charter can't handle another 4 years of Stephen Harper.

Sorry, tech press. Google+ is alive and well.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/Z6sQ6w )

A chorus of tech journalists this week is saying that Google is phasing out its social network, Google+.

Where did they get this juicy nugget of information? Well, they made it up. And I'll tell you why.

But first, let's look at what the press is saying and compare that with reality:

The tech press are a bunch of twitterati and won't admit there's something stupid about a 140 character limit. As well I think the tech press love the idea that they can make or break a product through sheer propaganda.

I'd say we shouldn't reward them for withholding these speeds until they had no choice. They've been sitting on this for years.

4 Non-Destructive Dodge & Burn Techniques by Photoshop Masters
► Read this post at [ frb.li/2nxwr ]

Dodging and Burning is one of the oldest techniques in photo editing. It has been there ever since the early days of film photography. The terms themselves actually come from the darkroom techniques of exposing some areas longer (burning) to make them darker and some areas shorter (dodging) to brighten them.

In Photoshop, there are many different techniques to dodge and burn an image. You may know the Dodge and the Burn tools that let you work directly on an image layer to darken or light areas selectively. The problem with the direct application of these tools is that they are destructive. This means, they directly change the image pixels and you cannot really undo or change them once they are applied.

In this article, you will learn four different techniques by Photoshop masters for actually applying dodging and burning non-destructively. These are very important skills that will make your workflow faster, more flexible, and more robust, no matter which type of photography you are into.

Friendly staff, great selection of flavours, and huge assortment of toppings. Mostly frozen yogurt in a range of flavours, but also have a few options for sorbet. Pay by weight so it costs as little or much as you want. Been here a few times and the staff has always been friendly, the machines have all been up and running and the toppings almost fully stocked.

If you can find what you're looking for, Canadian Tire generally has great prices. The main issue is customer service, trying to find anyone help you find something is a bit of a challenge. Spoke to three different associates but they were all too busy or said they'd be right back never to return. When we finally found one who was free, he seemed a bit annoyed that we were requesting assistance. We were picking up a lawnmower and the only box out was opened and their kiosks said they had 40+ in stock so I asked for a sealed box and the associate responded that all the boxes were open. I made him get one anyways and sure enough it was still factory sealed.

It's better to use the pickup in store option. Went to go get an item that the website said they had 5 of. Once I arrived at the store, the spot where the item was displayed was empty, checked the in store kiosk and it still said they had 5. Asked an associate, she looked at the spot where it was supposed to be and simply replied that they must be out of stock. I went home and on a whim I purchased it using the in store pickup option. Less than 2 hours later I had an email saying my item was ready to pickup, went back to the store and sure enough it was waiting for me at Customer Service.
