There’s still an unknown world out there…

By | Jan 30, 2009

I draw your attention today to this BBC audio slideshow summarizing the discoveries of Mr. Johnathan Timberlake’s team of scientists from the London Royal Botanic Garden.  It seems that by using Google Earth, their attention was drawn to a forest on Mount Mabu in northern Mozambique – they realized something was there and would be worth having […]

Obama’s First Couple Days

By | Jan 24, 2009

President Obama has had a busy first couple days.  He closed CIA detention centres overseas (including Guantanamo Bay), canceled midnight legislation pushed through by the Bush regime, and is working on his economic stimulus package.  He’s made moves for an open and accountable administration, which is especially encouraging in light of the criticisms that were […]

The Credit History Mystery

By | Jan 23, 2009

Even though poor credit management is in large part responsible for the melt down we are currently trying to deny, the average North American is woefully ignorant of what it means to have a “credit history”.

The Sad Digitization of the English language

By | Jan 22, 2009

Obama’s Big Day

By | Jan 20, 2009

As everyone knows, today is the day Barack Obama becomes the 44th President of the United States.  Congratulations to him and his supporters.  Many people will remember this day as a historic – I use that term with Reservations I will explain – day, and I’m sure many people will talk in years about where […]

Citigroup Splits

By | Jan 19, 2009

Despite their expensive newspaper ads insisting all is well, it turns out that Citigroup is in fact – wait for it – having problems! Now that the government is their biggest stakeholder with $45 billion in bailout funds, the company has basically abandoned its “lets become as big as we can” and has started selling […]

By | Jan 18, 2009

In light of it being Sunday, I thought I’d write something a little light-hearted and fun tonight, so I will discuss football.  Tonight the Arizona Cardinals made it to the superbowl.  They haven’t been in a championship game since 1947.  Let me put that into perspective.  Since the last time the Arizona  Cardinals have been […]
