Introduction

For the ten years from 1991 - 2001, Kempton was involved in two of the largest safety & mission critical software projects in Canada: Canadian Automated Air Traffic System for Transport Canada, and then Iris Digital Communications System for the Canadian Department of National Defence.

For the ten years from 2001 - 2011, Kempton recharged his battery by getting an MBA, made a nationally archived feature-length documentary, and has been taking different paths in trying to be good in things that interested him.

Bragging rights
Kempton's first feature-length documentary Long Hair Revolution (2005) is preserved in Library and Archives Canada's permanent collection "for the benefit of present and future generations".

#liftoff #EpicSpeech //At the core, none of us were meant to be common.
We were born to be comets,
Darting across space and time —
Leaving our mark as we crash into everything.
A crater is a reminder that something amazing happened here —
An indelible impact that shook up the world.
Are we not astronomers — looking for the next shooting star?
I teach in hopes of turning content, into rocket ships —
Tribulations into telescopes,
So a child can see their potential from right where they stand.
An injustice is telling them they are stars
Without acknowledging night that surrounds them.
Injustice is telling them education is the key
While you continue to change the locks.

Education is no equalizer —
Rather, it is the sleep that precedes the American Dream.
So wake up — wake up! Lift your voices
Until you’ve patched every hole in a child’s broken sky.
Wake up every child so they know of their celestial potential.
I’ve been a Black hole in the classroom for far too long;
Absorbing everything, without allowing my light escape.
But those days are done. I belong among the stars.
And so do you. And so do they.
Together, we can inspire galaxies of greatness
For generations to come.
No, sky is not the limit. It is only the beginning.
Lift off.// https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XGUpKITeJM

(part 2 of 2) Neurology - "Bioinformatic profiling identifies an immune-related risk signature for glioblastoma" http://www.neurology.org/content/early/2016/05/25/WNL.0000000000002770.short [Note: The link works.]
Abstract Objective: To investigate the local immune status and its prognostic value in glioma. Methods: A cohort of 297 glioma samples with whole genome microarray expression data from the Chinese Glioma Genome Atlas database were included for discovery. The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database was used for validation. Principal components analysis and gene set enrichment analysis were used to explore the bioinformatic implication. Results:...

(audio) What a touching and insightful speech! //In these frenetically fluid, intellectually sclerotic, economically narcissistic, ideologically polarized, and rhetorically tempestuous times — a world that too often feels like it's spinning out of control — we need a legal profession that worries about what the world looks and feels like to those who are vulnerable. - Rosalie Abella//
In 2004, Rosalie Abella became the first Jewish woman to sit on the bench of the Supreme Court of Canada. This week, she became the first Canadian woman to earn an honorary degree from Yale Law School, and she spoke to new graduates about their duty to stand up for the vulnerable in "a world that too often feels like it's spinning out of control."

(part 1 of 2) //Published Wednesday in Neurology, the medical journal American Academy of Neurology, the study identifies a group of immune system genes that may influence how long people live after developing the cancer, potentially leading the way for doctors hoping to use the body’s own immune system to fight the deadly disease. [...] "If our discovery of these genes is validated in other studies, we could use this 'gene signature' to determine the best treatments or path of treatment."// http://www.ctvnews.ca/sci-tech/chinese-researchers-shed-new-light-on-terminal-brain-cancer-1.2916839
Researchers in China are shedding new light in the fight against glioblastoma – the aggressive form of brain cancer The Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie was diagnosed with.
