Here’s a follow-up to yesterday’s post about the new Mosaic Stadium with some video footage of the day from CJME NewsTalk 980…

(Belated) Saturday Snap – Random Thoughts on the New #riders #MosaicStadium #yqr

(My “Saturday Snap” name has never seemed more appropriate as I post some thoughts and photos of our visit to the new Mosaic Stadium.  I meant to have these up Saturday night but supper with friends after the game then an awesome Fred Eaglesmith concert meant I didn’t finish this post until Sunday.) — Shea […]

Generational Differences Chart

I’m always interested in the concept of generational differences which has come up a couple times recently – after Shea attended a workshop on reaching out to young people in the workplace and then during a conversation in my workplace where a few of us “oldies” had fun explaining what life was like in the time of cassette […]

Hillary Clinton’s Invisible Guiding Hand

At least in terms of prestigious office location at Hillary HQ, Hillary’s chief statistician is given equal weight to the Campaign Chairperson, the Campaign Manager and her most trusted assistant.

A McReview of the New McDonalds “Create Your Taste” Burger Option #yqr

So, to celebrate the first day of school, we decided to take Pace to McDonalds for supper. I’d forgotten that Regina’s Rochdale McDonalds location (and perhaps others in the city?) have installed the new “Build Your Taste” machines which are like giant iPad-like, self-serve touchscreen machines.

It can seem as […]

Is @BradWall Trying to Implement A New Tax on #Saskatchewan Residents? #skpoli #sasktel #tasksell

Coffee row has been lit up over the last couple days after Saskatchewan Premier, Brad Wall mused about the sale of vital crown corporation, SaskTel to make a one-time payment that would (temporarily?) eliminate our provincial operating debt. There are numerous reasons this is a seriously bad idea: As the graphic above shows, SaskTel helps to keep prices incredibly low […]

Did Donald Trump Start His Presidential Campaign To Gain Negotiating Leverage With NBC?

In this election cycle, sure, why not?

Friday Fun Link – I Replaced The Word ‘Millennials’ With ‘43-Year-Old White Men’ And Now These Headlines Are *Italian Chef Kissing Fingers Gesture*

As a 43-year old white male, I feel duty-bound to post this funny piece that came out last week and which shows how silly many web articles about an entire generation sound when applied to a very specific slice of demography… Some examples… How Tumblr Plans To Pay 43-Year-Old White Men To Blog ?—?Inc. Is The […]

Read Books, Live Longer?

Even after controlling for other factors that may mean some people are more likely to read than others (education, gender, age, etc.), a recent study shows that people who read more are more likely to live longer… Compared with those who did not read books, those who read for up to three and a half […]
