If we would be paying proper attention this would lead to some positive changes. Unfortunately it looks like the RCMP is not going to change one bit as a result of this.
This might open the the door for Duffy to actually sue the RCMP but I would not be surprised if he is just happy to put this behind him so I doubt this will happen.

There are many reasons to dislike how the Senate goes about its business but trying to prosecute Senator Duffy for following orders from the PMO is not the way to go about it. 
You'd think the RCMP would have a great deal to answer for in the wake of the Mike Duffy verdict. Because as a result of the case, the force's motto, "Maintiens le Droit," is that much more meaningless.

Troubling but not surprising.
Provincial ethics commissioners need to clamp down on political fundraising events that give wealthy donors exclusive access to premiers, according to a democracy watchdog.

Nice. Inspiring.
 
The talk is primarily about efficient code, and is very inspirational..IMO
Linus Torvalds transformed technology twice — first with the Linux kernel, which helps power the Internet, and again with Git, the source code management system used by developers worldwide. In a rare interview with TED Curator Chris Anderson, Torvalds discusses with remarkable openness the personality traits that prompted his unique philosophy of work, engineering and life. "I am not a visionary, I'm an engineer," Torvalds says. "I'm perfectly h...

Joris is the Dutch equivalent of George. Nickname as a kid was 'Driepinter' after the mascot in the Dutch milk commercials that played when I was young.
Great atmosphere and an excellent assortment of Dutch products. My 'go-to' place to get my licorice and dutch cheese fix.

Nothing special but convenient location for a stay before or after cruise from Port Everglades. Hotel provides free shuttle to and from airport and cruise terminal. Breakfast is included but pretty basic.

Stylish looking if you like modern and in a nice location. A bit pricey but probably normal for the area. Did not try the restaurant.
