Cookie Stat!

I was stumped at what to do next.


I have this big job, I have that tough task.


I couldn't choose.


So I sat here stumped.


Then I knew what to do.


I poured a cup of tea.


I got a cookie.


A low sugar, high fiber, I'm in my 60s, cookie.


But it was still a cookie.


And I dipped that cookie into my tea.


I held it there until it softened.


It took a while.


Then I plopped the steaming hot cookie into my mouth.


And let it sit there, sweet and gooey.


Tasting like a regular cookie rather than a cookie to keep me regular.


I didn't think about the big job.


I didn't think about the tough task.


I just enjoyed the cookie.


It didn't make the choice easier.


Cookies don't have that power.


But ... it took the pressure off the moment.


And ... it took the pressure off the brain.


And that did make the choice easier.


I think life should give everyone a cookie PRN order.

Sunrise

Sunrise

Written by: Mike Mullin

Published by: Tanglewood Press

Published on: April 15, 2014

Ages: Young Adult

Provided by the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. 









The third, concluding book in the apocalyptic Ashfall series is Sunrise. The title is happier than either of the first two books, Ashfall and Ashen Winter. It alludes to hope, the theme of this book.

Mullin is a master at writing action scenes. There are plenty of those in this book, but also a lot of interaction between the characters we have grown to love in the trilogy. It's the perfect mesh.

In other post-apocalyptic books, we usually get a government gone wrong and people pushing back against them (ala Hunger Games). But I am always most interested in how people get that government. What are the choices that lead them that way?

Alex and Darla have experienced the government's hospitality after the Yellowstone super volcano blew, as well as that of the government's subcontractors. They realize that they are on their own- and they make steps toward being self-sufficient. Alex is able to lead while still being true to Darla and his own young self.

Sunrise is my favourite in this trilogy, which is saying a lot as I really enjoyed Ashfall. The only bad thing is saying goodbye to a trio of books I have enjoyed so much.

Winnipeg magician Darcy Oake does tricks on Britain's Got Talent


Darcy Oake tried out for Britain's Got Talent - and he's gone viral. The literal magician did some tricks with doves and whatnot and people were impressed.

He tells the judges at the beginning that he is from Canada and he came all the way to Britain to try out for the show because it is the 'biggest talent show in the world'. What Darcey, Canada's got talent was not your jam? So rude. (Oh wait...it got cancelled, you're forgiven.)

This guy actually has been travelling all over doing shows, he wasn't just doing card tricks at the family Christmas eggnog slosh fest and thought 'I need a stage!' And speaking of his family - his father is more famous than he is. You know him, Scott Oake. If you are Canadian you know him as one of the faces of Hockey Night in Canada or from his Olympic coverage since the '88 Olympics in Calgary.

Well, congrats on having tons of people see your bird trick Darcy. It's the best thing to come out of Winnipeg since...I don't know, Fred Penner?

XOXO

More Canadian Tech for the Space Technology Hall of Fame

          by Brian Orlotti

Two more life-saving space technologies with a Canadian genesis will soon be inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame.


The Cospas-Sarsat global satellite system, which grew out of a 1979 agreements between the US, France, Canada and the USSR to jointly develop a global search and rescue satellite system, and the NeuroArm, an image-guided, MR-compatible surgical robot derived from technology originally developed for the CanadArm, will be honoured during the annual Space Technology Hall of Fame gala dinner, which will be held as part of the 30th annual Space Symposium of the Space Foundation on May 22nd in Colorado Springs, CO.

The two technologies join Ottawa based Mediphan, inducted in 2013 and discussed in the April 13th, 2013 post "Canadian based Mediphan Inducted into Space Technology Hall of Fame" along with 68 other space derived technologies, which have been inducted over the last 26 years.


The event is organized by the Colorado Springs based Space Foundation, a US based space advocacy group founded in 1983 to support and raise awareness of the global space industry through various education and outreach programs. The organization also publishes a well respected, annual Space Report on global space activity, which is normally released during the Space Symposium.

The Cospas-Sarsat Global Satellite System
In 1979, the US, France, Canada and the USSR signed an agreement to jointly develop a global search-and-rescue satellite system which became fully operational in 1985. Since its inception, the system has helped rescue over 32,000 people.
The first generation system used five low-Earth orbit satellites to detect signals from emergency beacons and repeat them to ground stations where doppler processing provides the signal location.  These satellites used an instrument called a Search and Rescue Repeater (SARR), developed by the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) to relay the beacon signal to a local ground station for Doppler processing to obtain a location. The location data is then relayed to search and rescue organizations. 
In 1997, a Canadian government study determined that a better Sarsat system would be one based on medium Earth orbit (MEO) satellites. A MEO system would provide full global coverage, accurately determine an emergency beacon's location, and require fewer ground stations. GPS was identified as the ideal MEO system. 
NASA led a development effort to create what will eventually become the Distress Alerting Satellite System (DASS). The next generation DASS will incorporate search and rescue transponders directly on-board various global satellite navigation systems including the US' Global Positioning System (GPS), Russia's Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) and the European Union's upcoming Galileo satellite navigation system. DASS will enable satellites to instantly pinpoint an emergency beacon's exact location, thus eliminating the need for ground-based doppler calculations and provide more accurate data more quickly to search and rescue organizations. 
Today, forty one countries participate in the operation and management of Cospas-Sarsat with over 1 million beacons in use worldwide. Cospas-Sarsat is headquartered in Montreal, PQ. 
The NeuroArm
In 1969, NASA invited Canada to participate in the space shuttle program. A request for proposals for a Shuttle Remote Manipulator System (SRMS) resulted in a proposal from a group of firms including  Spar Aerospace (now MacDonald, Dettwiler), CAE Electronics, RCA Canada and Dilworth, Secord, Meagher and Associates. 
The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) began studies on a manipulator system and in 1975, Canada and NASA launched a $110Mln CDN development program. 
The first SRMS (which became known as the Canadarm), was donated to NASA and was followed by four additional systems accomplishing over 90 missions. An improved version, called Canadarm2, specifically built to assemble to components of the International Space Station (ISS), was first deployed in 2001. This was followed in 2008 by the advanced two-armed Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (DEXTRE) which currently performs ISS maintenance and repairs and also serves as a robotics test bed.
Following the success of Dextre, Macdonald Dettwiler was approached by Dr. Garnette Sutherland of the University of Calgary and Alberta Health Services in search of partners to help develop NeuroArm, an MRI-guided robot used for performing microsurgery. On May 12th, 2008, a surgical team at Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary, AB performed the first image-guided neuro-surgical procedure with a robot, with the neurosurgeon controlling NeuroArm from an adjacent room. NeuroArm enables microsurgeries to be both more precise and less invasive

In 2010, NeuroArm's patents and technology were purchased by Minneapolis-based medical equipment firm IMRIS Inc. IMRIS, formerly based in Winnipeg, is now developing a next-generation version of NeuroArm called Symbis.
Brian Orlotti.
The Canadian genesis of these life-saving technologies is a testament to the skill and ingenuity of its space sector. Canadian space technology's rich heritage of enhancing life on Earth as well as in space should be honoured, so that the achievements of our past can inspire us to create a better future.

Shannon Hill Speaks Up About About ABA Autism Intervention Benefits and Autism "Services" in Saskatchewan


Shannon Hill of Saskatchewan, parent of a child on the autism spectrum, 
Board Certified Assistant Behaviour Analyst, (Florida Institute of Technology ABA program), autism advocate and BA (Psychology)

Following is a letter written by Shannon Hill to Linda Restau director of continuing care and rehabilitation for the Ministry of Health, Province of Saskatchewan, including comments on ABA and its benefits for autistic children.

"Dear Ms. Restau,

I would like to take this opportunity to comment on the article presented by Ashley Wills of 650 CKOM April 22, 2014.

In the article you state with regard to Saskatchewan's funding for ASD services "That doesn't include some of the other services that individuals with autism may access through regional health authorities or other ministry services."

I would respectfully ask what services you are referring to - specifically. I have been a parent of a child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder for twelve years, have worked as an ASD Consultant in the Saskatoon Health Region, and have absolutely no idea what you are referring to. Are you talking about Cognitive Disability Strategy - which almost no families qualify for? Other than that, I can think of no service outside of the Health regions that would serve the Early Intervention needs of our children. Even in the case of older children who have specific,challenging behaviours such as self injury, property destruction or aggression, there is no place for parents to turn to address these behaviours. (And don't get me started on the kids under the care of Social Services or kids who are dumped in schools).

I would also urge you to take another look at the Lovaas study from 1987 that you keep referring to. It is clear that you have misread the study as everyone else who reads it, seems to understand that 47% of children in the treatment group who received 40 hours per week recovered from their symptoms of autism, which isn't to say that nothing went on with the rest of the children who underwent treatment.

Original research in peer-reviewed journals indicating that 90% of children substantially improved when utilizing the Lovaas Model of Applied Behavior Analysis, compared to the control group. Close to half attained a normal IQ and tested within the normal range on adaptive and social skills. -Lovaas Institute website. Not all children will achieve recovery, but all children will benefit from intensive therapy, their quality of life improves through developing skills that make them more independent,therefore less of a "burden" on the health care system as they age. This has been proven time and time again with research.

The cost for intervening when these children are small is great, but it is nothing compared to the cost of warehousing adults with autism who have no skills, poor social behaviour and in some cases no functional communication because they did not receive treatment early on.

I have offered my knowledge and experience numerous times to the government, and I daresay I could put you in contact with folks across this country who have much more knowledge and experience than I.

I am asking the government of Saskatchewan to please take me up on this, please, please put someone in charge who has an idea of what treatment looks like, instead of fumbling about in the dark with excuses.

Sincerely,

Shannon Hill, BCaBA"

The Longest Winter Ever

I wouldn't be surprised if you thought I had simply given up and run away.  I have been seriously thinking about that.  Packing up my bags and heading somewhere tropical where there is no work, no school and no snow.


Scenes like this are no longer slightly amusing, they are simply disheartening.  I feel like we're been on a winter roller coaster for months now with no end in sight.  Temperatures drop to bone chilling minus double digits for a week, then rise and a snow storm blows in, then drop again and repeat.  Fires must be stocked, paths must be shoveled, even the garbage cans must be routinely dug out of the snow.  This is officially the worst winter we have had since moving to PEI. 

Today is a good day though.  The temperature has risen from -12 degree celsius overnight to a balmy +4 degrees. 

there's a compost bin at the end of this path
On days like this I feel like there is some hope.  Spring is around the corner so they tell me.  The sun certainly feels warmer this past week.  Almost warm enough to melt the ice off the trees.


I will concede that the island has never looked prettier when it lit up like a jewel in the morning sun after an ice storm.

Ice covered trees are beautiful
It helped to ease my frustration when I realized that my gas cap was frozen solid under a sheet of ice and I was out of gas.

Ice covered cars are NOT beautiful.
To help with the cabin fever I am focusing on spring.  Seeds arrived in the post this week.  Lovely packets full of dreams of green things.  I am taking the spring semester off from school this year. A break from the stress and time to work in my garden.  I am longing for the day when I finally see grass and can get out my shovel.

In the meantime Rick Mercer helps bring a little levity to the situation and helps keep me sane.  Enjoy.

And let it sit there, sweet and gooey.


Tasting like a regular cookie rather than a cookie to keep me regular.


I didn't think about the big job.


I didn't think about the tough task.


I just enjoyed the cookie.


It didn't make the choice easier.

NEW PATS OWNERSHIP DETAILS

REGINA, SK – A new ownership group called Queen City Sports & Entertainment Group announced today that they've reached an agreement with Pats owners Russ and Diane Parker to purchase the Regina Pats hockey franchise.
 
All based in Regina, the new ownership group is comprised of Anthony Marquart and Todd Lumbard (101255951 Saskatchewan Ltd.), Jason Drummond (DGC Entertainment Inc.), and Shaun and Gavin Semple (Brandt Entertainment Inc.).
 
Speaking on behalf of Queen City Sports, Anthony Marquart stated "Our group is very excited and optimistic about the future of the Pats organization.

The Little White Dress

Move over, LBD—a fresher, lighter colour is taking over this summer! Make room in your closet for the LWD. That's the little white dress, and I'm loving this colour for the summer.

After all, what goes better with a golden tan than a little white dress, and a pair of sexy heels?

I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it in Banana Republic (so I had to buy it!) and I am planning on wearing it when I baptizing the baby of one of my best friends this summer, after returning from Greece. The hardest part will be not wearing this dress before then!


Banana Republic has a great selection of white dresses:



And I'm in love with all the pretty white dresses from Nordstrom:



Modcloth.com has some cute and affordable white dresses, too:


And you can find a few at Old Navy:


No matter your price range, you're sure to find something adorable in white this season, and you can wear it with cute flats of sexy heels. Don't forget the best accessory with a white dress, besides a golden tan, is your sparkling smile!

Happy shopping, friends.
