Check out this video on YouTube: A quick compilation of the K&P Trail located in Frontenac County, Ontario, Canada. This 9 km portion of the trail was cycled southbound from Bellrock Rd in Verona down to Colebrooke Rd in Harrowsmith. The music is "Out of the Shadows" by Opus Orange, which I first heard from the amazing documentary "Mile...Mile & a Half." The video was shot handheld using the new Hyperlapse iOS app.

Wow. Still so applicable more than a century later when it seems domestic and global conflict are pervasive as ever. Perhaps Occam's razor should be applied here. There's no fewer assumptions than the acceptance of love and the rejection of evil. 
"Love is the only way to rescue humanity from all ills." In 1908, Indian revolutionary Taraknath Das wrote to Leo Tolstoy, by then one of

Wonderful & inspiring.
Here's a story that will warm your heart. Like many New Yorkers, professional hairdresser and stylist Mark Bustos works an intensive 6 days a week. There's seldom a minute during the working week, when he has time to catch his breath. But each Sunday, come rain or shine and despite it bein...

An example of how the #Volt still does well but loses efficiency outside the pure electric range. Today was a 60km commute to work and back, a half top-up over 2 hours at home with the 240 V charger, then a trip to Belleville and back for a kid's soccer match.

An electric car with a 320 km range for $35,000 US? Impressive! #EV #Tesla
Elon Musk has revealed the name and price of Tesla's newest car model: the Tesla Model III.

You could definitely say this was a boat-themed day. First a ferry ride over to Wolfe Island for preparation and ceremony, as Katherine's American family has had a property there for decades. Then back across to the mainland to the Island Queen for dinner and reception. We're really glad we pulled the bride and groom away for those few minutes at sunset! #wedding #weddingphotography #Kingston #ygk #WolfeIsland  #ferry #cruise

It’s free for simply creating a collection and showing it. I love the simplicity. I’m still with Zenfolio as well.

Insane.
 
What is the biggest known star in the Universe? 

Astronomers have identified that one in VY Canis Majoris (VY CMa), a hypergiant star located in the constellation Canis Major, which with a diameter equal to 2600 sunlight (solar radius 1 = 7 x 10 ^ 8 m) is currently the biggest known star and one of the brightest.

 It is located about 5000 light-years from Earth, and, unlike many others that are in binary or multiple systems, VY CMa is a single star instead. 
If we imagined being on an airplane and fly over the star, with a top speed of 900 km / h, we would expend more than 1000 years to return to the starting point.

In the animated gif below, you can see  VY Canis Majoris  compared to Earth.
In order of appearance: Earth, Sun, Sirius, Betelgeuse, VY Canis Majoris. 
VY Canis Majoris is so large, that if it were to replace our own sun the star itself would extend outwards past the orbit of Jupiter.

An important distinction. 
Summary: The best part about having smartphones and thousands of connections through social networks like Twitter or Instagram is that we never have to be bored. But that’s also the bad part.

Nothing better than a beautiful day while #geocaching and #cycling on the Cataraqui Trail near Perth Road Village.

We don't know Ohio couple Sarah and Josh personally, but we like the way they think. Because when wedding planning got to be a bit too much and they decide

A beautiful with an amazing couple. The ceremony was at Daisy Hill Bed & Breakfast in Odessa, with a quick stop at Babcock Mill before heading to the Portuguese Hall for the reception.

Love the ambiance and selection for a decent-sized country store. Staff are always friendly and there butcher shop at the rear is high quality.

Been my auto dealer and maintenance/repair locale for years. Not the cheapest price in town but loyalty pays off in my opinion. Always treated very well there by staff who I know on a first name basis.

They only offer a brunch menu on Sundays but we shared the pasta Alfredo and the open-faced Smoked Atlantic Salmon sandwich. Prices reasonable and staff friendly. Inside dining room more refined than what outside appearance hints at. Relaxing ambient music.

Like the seating arrangement and staff always friendly, but often busy and parking is at a premium.

Friendly staff, fresh hot food with generous portions. I recommend the Tuscan Chicken sandwich.
