Well kids, since Toronto has made the hockey playoffs for the first time in ten years, or so, one of our readers came up with a GREAT idea!
Put a big red light on the top of the C.N. Tower and every time the Leafs score a goal it will flash the same as the red goal light behind the net!
(Can hardly wait!)
imagesCAW97P6AA new poll finds that Canadians underestimate their chances of needing long-term care as they get older — and are taking few steps to get ready.
The poll examines how people 40 and over are preparing for this difficult and often pricey reality of aging. Two-thirds say they’ve done little to no planning.
In fact, 3 in 10 would rather not think about getting older at all. Only a quarter predict it’s very likely that they’ll need help getting around or caring for themselves during their senior years.
That’s a surprise considering the poll found more than half of the 40-plus crowd already have been caregivers for an impaired relative or friend.
If you’re trying to cut back on spending, you may have put your credit card on ice. Smart move, but you’d better check your credit card agreement because with some cards, even self-discipline comes at a cost. Indeed, some cards charge an inactivity fee. According to the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada, this is a fee charged on cards that have been inactive for a long period of time, usually a year. The damage is generally a modest $10 to $25 per year. Even so, it’s a lot to pay for nothing.
Back in the 1970s, a ticket to a Rolling Stones concert in Toronto cost around $8. Tickets for the band’s upcoming Toronto stops on its 50th annversary tour start at $166.50, with the priciest spots listed for upwards of $600 a seat.
However, according to ticket sales giant Ticketmaster, a major factor is the massive and elaborate shows that make up today’s typical concert experience.
“[In the past, there were no] massive video screens and production elements,” said Ticketmaster Canada executive Patti-Anne Tarlton. “Whereas you look at today: [they're] massive, massive live entertainment spectacles, really.”
Machines with the ability to attack targets without any human intervention must be banned before they are developed for use on the battlefield, campaigners against “killer robots” urged on Tuesday.
The weapons, which could be ready for use within the next 20 years, would breach a moral and ethical boundary that should never be crossed, said Nobel Laureate Jody Williams, of the “Campaign To Stop Killer Robots”.
Remember Asimov’s three laws of Robotics folks!
  1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.
