So far, all the Marvel Comic Universe movies by Marvel Studios (now Disney) since the first Iron Man have been good.  Many have been great, such as the first Avengers and the second Captain America (Captain America: The Winter Soldier).

Harper, he's never been ready. 

Edit: as +Paul Atwal​ points out, the article is a tad biased. Original study can be found here:

Thanks Paul!

I'm not the only one then. Chrome works fine, but Edge just hangs on the grey screen. Very frustrating.

+Tim Hunt +John-Paul Kadoura I have a good feeling about this working for Tim. I never thought about going into the older IE settings, which is really the core of what I'd have liked Tim to be able to do. So here's fingers crossed!

Mr. Harper promised before he came to office to allow parliamentarians to ask questions of an appointee. He kept that promise with his first appointment, of Justice Rothstein, and again with justices Michael Moldaver, Andromache Karakatsanis, Richard Wagner and Justice Nadon – failing to hold a hearing for just one appointee in his first six, Thomas Cromwell, in 2008.

But then came the failed appointment of Justice Nadon, whom the Supreme Court rejected as legally unqualified. Afterward, The Globe published a story on the secret short list behind his appointment, and the government responded by cancelling parliamentary involvement in screening, according to a Justice Department document released in response to a Liberal Party request. It also cancelled the public hearings of appointees. Justice Brown is the third judge appointed to the Supreme Court in 15 months without parliamentary involvement.

My, my... someone took things a bit personally, didn't they?
So much for accountability or openness.

Trained seals and scripted releases directly from the PMO. A national disgrace.

Whelp, updated the lappie to W10, and it seems to run fine. However...

Microsoft's new Browser, Edge, doesn't seem to work at all... every time I attempt to launch it the browser displays a blank page, and the cursor displays the "loading" circle, but doesn't seem to actually load anything. Not overly impressed with Edge, I have to say.

Thankfully Chrome seems to run fine.

IE11 isn't bad, actually; it definitely has better memory management than Chrome.

I'm really interested in Edge - it's supposed to be quite good - but for whatever reason, it's not running on my laptop, and I can't seem to find anything online to suggest a fix.

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.

BC Liberal MLA Stephanie Cadieux needs to step down now; she's digging herself a hole from which there is no way out... on top of the god-awful, horrible handling of this case, her ministry is now threatening to investigate the mother of the abused children!

Enough is enough! Show some integrity and step down now!
Weeks after a judge found staff with the Ministry of Children and Family Development violated a court order and allowed a father who had molested his kids unsupervised visits, the mother of the children is still waiting for an apology from the government.

Story
Tagline
"Why is it every time I need to get somewhere, we get waylaid by jackassery?"
Introduction
Information professional; husband; father; pack mule.

Interests:
I love sci-fi and fantasy games, movies, books, and everything in between.

Politics:
I try to maintain an open mind, but for the most part I'm left-leaning; that said, I don't necessarily support any particular political party, and I'm critical of all of them. I'm also very passionate about privacy rights, and transparent and responsible government.

Religion / Philosophy:
I'm an atheist (apatheist to be exact), but I tend towards a "live and let live" approach to religion and philosophy. So long as you respect my beliefs I'll respect yours... assuming your beliefs aren't completely nuts or in any way infringe upon my rights and freedoms.
That said, for me, science and logic trump belief and ideology every time.

My Rules:
I do not tolerate rude, obnoxious or offensive comments on my posts.
I will not tolerate anyone using my posts for their personal soapbox or to push their own agendas. That type of behaviour will result in your post being deleted and / or you getting blocked.

Note:
While I expect others to respect the rules as they are laid out above, I am not beholden to them. What's the point of having a social media page if I can't use it as an excuse to be a hypocrite? ;-)
