Clicks of the Day: Thursday, May 31, 2012 Edition!

Welcome to Thursday, May 31 2012’s Clicks of the Day!

Clicks of the Day is a daily round up of news posted Sunday through Thursday with quantity and quality of content differing depending on how busy Linda’s day is.

    Edmonton/Alberta/Canada

  • Teacher says zeros prepare students for real world
  • “Two weeks after an Edmonton high school teacher said he was suspended, Lynden Dorval told CTV News why it happened, and why he kept giving zeroes to some students, even after he was told to stop. Dorval teaches physics at Ross Sheppard Composite High School, and doesn’t agree with a directive called the ‘Behavioural Code System’ introduced at the school about a year and a half ago that was meant to replace marks of zero with assigning behaviour codes for formative assessments. ‘Our marks program doesn’t recognize anything that isn’t numerical,’ Dorval, a public school teacher for 35 years said. ‘So of course the student’s marks are only based on the work they have actually done. It’s just like in real life, there are always consequences for not doing things.'”

    What kind of students are we shaping if we just let them breeze through school undeservedly?

  • Hantavirus case confirmed, AHS issues warning for Albertans
  • “AHS officials said a case of Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome has been confirmed in a resident of a rural community located north of Edmonton, although officials would not release a specific location. The confirmation has prompted health officials to issue a warning not only to residents of the immediate area, but to all Albertans, to carefully handle cleaning up rodent infestations and protect themselves.”

    Careful everyone.

  • Mulcair ‘has some valid points': mayor
  • “After a brief meeting with NDP leader Thomas Mulcair, Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo Mayor Melissa Blake says the leader of the official opposition has some valid points about environmental sustainability, but the two agreed to disagree.”

    Let’s agree to disagree..

  • Back-to-work law puts CP Rail back on track
  • “Back-to-work legislation for striking Canadian Pacific Rail workers cleared the Senate to become law Thursday, but Labour Minister Lisa Raitt is predicting it will take weeks to clear the backlog of freight once trains start rolling Friday morning. Some 4,800 locomotive engineers, conductors, yardmen and others walked off the job nine days ago, crippling the country’s biggest freight rail carrier.”

    No one’s allowed to strike in this country, it would appear. Lol.

  • Talks between Quebec gov’t, students collapse
  • “Talks between the Quebec government and students have been suspended after four days of negotiations, prompting speculations about an early election in the province. However, Premier Jean Charest downplayed the vote’s imminence.”

    Oh, Quebec.

  • Government-run Tim Hortons loses money, pays staff $28 per hour
  • “A large coffee costs close to $2, but the person pouring it was being paid $20 per hour plus an additional $8 for benefits and employers costs. In total, a cashier was earning an hourly wage of $28. The hospital coffee shop was paying its staff much higher wages than its counterparts because the people pouring the coffees and handing out doughnuts were Eastern Health staff. The average Tim Hortons employee usually gets paid the minimum wage or a little bit higher.”

    They are better paid than I am!

  • Man sought by Interpol auditioned for reality show
  • “The man wanted on an Interpol warrant in connection with a murder and dismemberment investigation auditioned for a reality television show on OutTV five years ago.”

    The stuff people dig up about you when you allegedly kill and dismember someone…

    World

  • North Korea proclaims itself a nuclear state in new constitution
  • “North Korea proclaimed itself a “nuclear state” this week following a revision of its constitution earlier this year. Kim Jong-Il has “transferred the country into an undefeated country with strong political ideology, a nuclear power state, and invincible military power,” according to the updated constitution posted on its portal website Naenara. The website posted the revised constitution on Wednesday, according to Yonhap, the South Korean state affiliated news agency.”

    Oh… cool…

    Health

  • Gonorrhoea becoming untreatable, health experts warn
  • “The number of newly diagnosed cases of gonorrhoea in England soared by 25% in 2011 amid fears that the sexual infection is becoming untreatable. There have been cases in Japan and Europe of infections that resist first-choice therapies. The Health Protection Agency said the threat of gonorrhoea was ‘very concerning.'”

    Uh oh.

  • Offices rife with bacteria, with more found in men’s than women’s
  • “Men’s offices contained more than women’s, the researchers found. The arm rests of chairs and hand sets of phones had higher bacterial counts than desk tops or computer components — keyboards and mice. But germaphobes should relax. The findings, published in the journal PLoS One, are no surprise. Humans play host to swarms of bacteria all the time — on our skin, in our nostrils and mouths, and particularly in our digestive tracts. Where we are, they are.”

    Just relax, germaphobes!

  • NYC proposes ban on sale of oversized soft drinks
  • “New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is proposing a ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks in the city’s restaurants, delis and movie theaters in the hopes of combating obesity – an expansion of his administration’s efforts to encourage healthy behavior by limiting residents’ choices.”

    Let’s do it!

  • Are teens becoming abstainers? Study charts declines in smoking, drinking, drugs
  • “Are teens becoming more abstemious? A new survey shows dropping rates of drinking, drug use and smoking among Canadian teens.”

    Yay!

    Technology/Social Media/Internet

  • Too funny: Google wants .LOL domain
  • “Google has applied to control a slew of domain names that are not only related to its core business but have “interesting and creative potential.” The company announced on its blog on Thursday that it has submitted applications to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) for the following domains: .google, .youtube, .doc and .lol.”

    “Lol!” My favourite acronym!

  • [Infographic]: 20 reasons to switch to Google+
  • Including “integration with Google services” – “better mobile app” – “easier profile setup” and more!

    I have been trying to use Google+ more…

    Business/Work/Economy/Media

  • Google unveils big changes to shopping business
  • “Google Inc unveiled major changes to its shopping business on Thursday that will likely prove controversial in the e-commerce world. Starting in the fall, product search results for users in the United States will be influenced by how much retailers and advertisers pay, a company executive said. In the past, product search results were based mainly on relevance and the program was free.”

    That does make a difference.

  • Oil industry will need 9,500 jobs by 2015: Report
  • “The three-year race to find a new generation of skilled oil and gas workers is on. No fewer than 9,500 jobs will need to be filled by 2015, according to a report by the Petroleum Human Resources Council of Canada, released Tuesday.”

    That’s a whole lotta jobs.

    Environment/Space/Animals/Science

  • Transit of Venus: a celestial site to see on June 5
  • “t won’t happen again in our lifetime, or our kids’ lifetime. Next week’s transit of Venus won’t be repeated until 2117. But we can see it for a couple of hours — if we are in the right place.”

    Very rare!

    Weird News, Other News & Fluff

  • Girl, 6, does not reach spelling bee semifinals
  • “Lori Anne Madison, 6, stepped boldly Wednesday afternoon to the microphone, lowered it a bit to fit her height, and took on the word ‘ingluvies’ at the National Spelling Bee. The youngest person ever to compete in the bee stumbled on the term for a bird’s craw, spelling it ‘engluvies.'”

    Good for her for making it into the bee in the first place! :)

Clicks of the Day: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 Edition!

Welcome to Wednesday, May 16 2012’s Clicks of the Day!

Clicks of the Day is a daily round up of news posted Sunday through Thursday with quantity and quality of content differing depending on how busy Linda’s day is.

    Edmonton/Alberta/Canada

  • New downtown arena images revealed, questions over funding remain
  • “New concept images and video of the proposed downtown arena were released Wednesday, but questions still remain over how the project will be paid for. The price tag has reached $532 million as a result of surrounding infrastructure including cost of land, LRT connections, and sidewalks. There’s also a $21 million community rink that is not included in the budget. The city was seeking $100 million in funding from the province, but Wednesday’s council meeting revealed that the city has yet to hold formal discussions with the province about arena funding.”

    Oh the arena saga…

  • Food truck fight underway in downtown Edmonton
  • “A popular Edmonton food truck has been asked to move from its current downtown location, after complaints that it was stealing business from a nearby restaurant.”

    Sad that it had to come to that! The food truck should be fine wherever it goes though, loyal customers. :)

  • Economic outlook predicts Alberta will lead through 2013
  • “Resource-rich Western Canada is going from strength to greater strength, according to a new Conference Board forecast on the economy. The think-tank’s spring outlook predicts Alberta will lead the country in economic growth both this year and next with 3.8 and 3.7 per cent gains respectively. In fact, the four western provinces will claim the top four growth rates in 2012 and 2013, all bettering or equalling the average growth in the country.”

    Well done, Alberta.

  • Alberta interested in joining Ontario in doctor fee overhaul
  • “With Ontario making the first move to reduce doctors’ fees for hundreds of services, Alberta is now saying it too wants to overhaul the way it pays its doctors. Alberta Health Minister Fred Horne says his province is looking to overhaul its physician pay formula and wants to be part of national discussions on how to rein in escalating fees… If the provinces unite on the issue, it could lead to a complete revamp of the way health care is funded in Canada – a revamp that many say is long overdue.”

    Interesting.

  • Protest gangs storm into Montreal university classes, force students out
  • “Protesters stormed into a university, many of them with their faces covered by masks, and worked through the hallways Wednesday on the hunt for classes to disrupt. The protesters were enforcing their declared strikes, and resented the fact that some students have used legal injunctions to return to school. Carrying a list of scheduled classes, about 100 hard-core protesters marched through pavilions at the Universite du Quebec a Montreal.”

    Wow. Strike and protest if you must but you’d think they could respect/leave the students who want to continue learning alone…

  • Quebec to suspend school semester amid protests
  • “The Quebec government will introduce emergency legislation that would suspend the school semester for striking students in an effort to end months of violent protests over tuition increases across the province. The bill would temporarily halt the spring semester in post-secondary institutions affected by the boycotts — 14 CEGEPs (the province’s public colleges) and 11 universities.”

    Intense.

  • Is roadkill coming to Canadian dinner tables?
  • “The Conservative government intends to change regulations to allow animals to be killed on the farm before being processed for human consumption. The opposition New Democratic Party says this will lead to roadkill being sold to Canadians… Under current regulations animals must be alive when they are shipped from a farm to a federal facility in order for the animal to eventually be processed for human consumption. The government is proposing a change to the regulations to allow the shipment of dead animals. The government says this will only be done in limited circumstances and food safety will not be compromised. The Official Opposition says the change will result in loopholes that will have Canadians eating roadkill.”

    I see.

  • Canadian luxury homes selling in record numbers
  • “Luxury homes are selling in higher numbers, and at higher price points, than ever before in a number of markets across Canada, according to a new survey of the high-end real estate market. Of the 16 major Canadian markets surveyed by RE/MAX in its Upper-End Report, 13 posted an increase in high-end sales, with 10 of those markets setting records.”

    Hm.

    World

  • North Korea ‘resumes work’ on light water reactor
  • “North Korea has resumed work on a light water reactor that could be used to support its nuclear programme after ”months of inactivity”, a United States institute says.”

    Hm.

    Health

  • Signs of brain disease found in soldiers exposed to IEDs
  • “Researchers studying the brains of soldiers exposed to blast injuries have found evidence of a degenerative disease also detected in athletes who have suffered repeated blows to the head, raising a worrisome prospect for thousands of combat veterans. Scientists from the United States and England say brain tissue in four American military members showed signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, a progressive disease normally linked to repetitive concussions.”

    Oh no.

    Technology/Social Media/Internet

  • Google Search just got 1,000 times smarter
  • “Starting today, a vast portion of Google Search results will work with you to intuit what you really meant by that search entry. Type in an ambiguous query like “Kings” (which could mean royalty, a sports team or a now-cancelled TV show), and a new window will appear on the right side of your result literally asking you which entity you meant. Click on one of those options and your results will be filtered for that search entity. To understand the gravity of this change, you need to know about the fundamental changes going on behind the scenes at Google Search. As we outlined in our report earlier this year, Google is switching from simple keyword recognition to the identification of entities, nodes and relationships. In this world, “New York” is not simply the combination of two keywords that can be recognized. It’s understood by Google as a state in the U.S. surrounded by other states, the Atlantic Ocean and with a whole bunch of other, relevant attributes.”

    So Google is becoming Skynet, lol.

  • A new wedding web app connects the guests
  • “A new web app lets the bride and groom-to-be create a social website that connects guests with each other before the big day. Called Weduary, the web app provides a simple way of creating a modern-looking wedding website, and allows the couple to invite guests using Facebook. The site tells guests which of their Facebook friends will also be attending and points out people at the event who may have common interests and mutual friends. If a guest is attending alone, the Flirt section of the site shows other singles who will be there.”

    Interesting. I already have my wedding blog but I am intrigued with this.

    Environment/Space/Animals/Science

  • Over consumption is killing off the world’s most precious wildlife, from tigers to tuna
  • “The Living Planet report revealed how more than 9,000 populations of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians and fish are faring reveal a planet in crisis, with serious implications for human health, wealth and well-being. Freshwater creatures in the tropics have seen the worst declines, of around 70 per cent, while tropical species as a whole have seen populations tumble by 60 per cent since 1970. In Asia, tiger numbers have fallen 70 per cent in just 30 years. Industrial fishing has caused a catastrophic loss of fish such as northern bluefin tuna in the western Atlantic.”

    Awful… mankind is awful.

  • Ancient ‘Loch Ness Monster’ suffered arthritis
  • “Ancient creatures resembling stout-necked Loch Ness Monsters apparently developed arthritis in their monster jaws, revealing that even such lethal killers could suffer from and eventually succumb to diseases of old age, researchers find. Scientists reached that conclusion while investigating the fossil of an extinct marine reptile known as a pliosaur. The carnivore was apparently an old female extending some 26 feet (8 meters). It had a 10-foot-long (3 meters), crocodilelike head, short neck, whalelike body and four powerful flippers to propel it through water to hunt down prey.”

    No one / thing is invincible! Also – I love Loch Ness Monsters and Loch Ness-like Monsters… so interesting.

    Weird News, Other News & Fluff

  • Love question in bottle floats 9000 km for answer
  • “A message in a bottle, posing a question about love and dropped into the sea off Indonesia, has been found more than a year later and 9,000 km away in Mozambique, on the east coast of Africa. The message’s author, Anne O’Sullivan, was travelling on a cruise ship past the central Indonesian island of Komodo when she tossed the bottle overboard. “We’re sitting in our balcony pondering. Is it better to love or be loved? Your answer will be appreciated. Call us or write to us,” the Australian teacher’s note read. Fifteen months later, she received a telephone call from a woman in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, telling her: “I found your bottle. It’s better to be loved. But to be loved you must love.””

    What a cool story.

Clicks of the Day: Wednesday, May 2, 2012 Edition!

Welcome to Wednesday, May 2 2012’s Clicks of the Day!

    Edmonton/Alberta/Canada

  • Report on MLA compensation recommends scrapping transition allowances
  • “Alberta’s provincial politicians should be paid $134,000 a year, plus up to $67,000 more when they take on extra responsibilities, says an independent salary review released Wednesday… Major also advised the government to scrap the gold-plated transition allowances that cost taxpayers more than $15 million this year, and said the province should discontinue the roughly $11,000 in RRSP money MLAs are given each year.”

    So much money…

  • Anti-idling bylaw to curb exhaust outside local schools, hospitals
  • “A five-year fight for cleaner air finally ended Wednesday when city council passed Edmonton’s first anti-idling bylaw. The new rule only bans drivers from running engines excessively outside schools and hospitals, not across the city, but Coun. Don Iveson said it will give kids a way to push adults to change their behaviour.”

    Good move.

  • Poll suggests dead heat for NDP, Tories on anniversary of election
  • “A new poll suggests the Conservatives and NDP are in a statistical tie for voter support one year after the federal election.”

    Lol. Though we know how wrong polls can be.

  • Leaders’ anniversary speeches highlight their contrasting styles
  • “Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Thomas Mulcair, the Leader of the New Democrats, addressed their caucuses on Wednesday morning with speeches crafted to chart the path forward. Mr. Harper was marking the first year of his majority government and Mr. Mulcair was saluting his party’s elevation to the offices of the Official Opposition.”

    Oh, politics.

  • Parliament gives up on hunt for Toews’ ‘Anonymous’ tormentor
  • “Public Safety Minister Vic Toews’ right as a parliamentarian to do his job free from intimidation and threats was violated by a series of online videos, a Commons committee has concluded, but it won’t be Parliament that seeks the identity of the minister’s antagonist. Instead, the RCMP will continue to digitally track the person or people behind the videos, posted by the online hacker community known as Anonymous in the wake of the government’s tabling of its controversial online surveillance bill.”

    Lol.

  • Bank of Canada unveils new $20 bill
  • “Counterfeiters beware: the Bank of Canada has unveiled a new version of the $20 bill that it says is almost impossible to copy… The new paperless, plasticized bills are part of a total currency redesign announced by the country’s central bank in 2011. The new $20 bills will begin circulating in November, joining polymer versions of the redesigned $100 and $50 bills already in use. New versions of the $10 and $5 will follow by the end of 2013.”

    Slick.

  • Election will resolve tuition-fee conflict: Quebec minister, opposition
  • “Quebec Finance Minister Raymond Bachand and Parti Quebecois leader Pauline Marois, who rarely agree on anything, both proposed on Wednesday that a new election is the only way to resolve Quebec’s tuition strike, now entering its fourth month.”

    This strike needs to end, four months wow.

    World

  • UN sanctions three North Korea firms over rocket launch
  • “The UN has imposed sanctions on three North Korean state-owned companies in response to Pyongyang’s failed rocket launch last month. The decision to freeze the assets of the firms and ban them from global trade was approved by the UN Security Council’s sanctions committee.”

    Hope it helps deter WWIII.

    Health

  • Nature publishes details of bird flu strain that could spread among people
  • “Controversial research on a hybrid strain of bird flu that could potentially spread between humans was published on Wednesday in Nature after security restrictions on the work were lifted. Scientists created the virus by merging a mutated strain of bird flu with the “swine flu” virus that sparked a human pandemic in 2009. The hybrid strain spread easily between ferrets – the best proxy that flu researchers have for people – but was not lethal and could be controlled with antiviral drugs and bird flu vaccines.”

    We will be responsible for our species demise… lol. Not to be depressing or anything.

  • Have scientists found a potential cure for aging in space?
  • “Researchers have found the enzyme responsible for killing-off their cells including their immune system, which could also be inhibited here on Earth to help slow the aging process.”

    Cool for use in space, I would question whether or not we should be trying to slow our own aging on Earth. Humans aren’t meant to live forever!

  • The costs of obesity
  • “Although the epidemic of obesity is well-known, the costs are not — and in many cases are significantly greater than estimated even a few years ago. Some examples of obesity’s economic impact: $190 billion in annual medical costs due to obesity, double earlier estimates. $1,850 more per year in medical costs for an overweight person than for someone of healthy weight, among employees at the Mayo Clinic and their adult dependents. $5 billion annually for additional jet fuel needed to fly heavier Americans, compared to fuel needed at 1960 weights.”

    Oy.

  • Sleep can turn off obesity genes, study says
  • “Research linking weight gain and obesity finds that getting more sleep each night may help limit genetic influences on weight. The study raises the tantalizing possibility that people may be able to use sleep to change a genetic predisposition to weight gain. ‘The longer you sleep, the less important genetics become in determining what you weigh,’ explained Dr. Nathaniel Watson, co-director of the University of Washington Sleep Disorders Center. “Does this mean you can sleep yourself thin?’ Watson asked. ‘Probably not. But you can sleep yourself to a point where environmental factors, like diet and activity, are more important in determining your body weight than genetics.'”

    Interesting. (I sleep a lot!)

  • Preterm births on the rise: report
  • “The rates of preterm births globally are on the rise, a new Canadian-led study has found… ‘Of the 65 countries with reliable trend data for preterm birth rates, all but three countries have shown increases in the last 20 years,’ Dr. Joy Lawn, co-editor of the report, said in a release Wednesday. ‘Preterm births account for almost half of all newborn deaths worldwide and are now the second leading cause of death in children under five, after pneumonia, and six times more than child deaths due to AIDS'”

    Why the increase?

  • We can prevent PDS… with Tetris
  • “In recent years, the military’s top brass have funded some truly bizarre approaches — from neck injections to Reiki — in an effort to treat symptoms of post-traumatic stress afflicting today’s soldiers. Turns out, they could’ve just equipped troops with Game Boys. At least according to one research team out of Oxford University, who claim that Tetris — yes, the ubiquitous, tile-stacking videogame of your youth — can actually prevent PTSD-related flashbacks.”

    Video games soothes the soul.

    Technology/Social Media

  • Why Mac users should care about Windows malware
  • “A Sophos researcher stirred up the Mac masses this week when he reported that 20 percent of Mac computers carry Windows malware. The good news is that even though Macs are capable of harboring Windows-targeting viruses and Trojans, those machines can’t be harmed by the malware in all but exceptional cases. The bad news, though, is that Mac users can still spread that malware to Windows machines in a number of ways.”

    Well at least our Macs can’t be harmed, lol. #whocaresaboutWindows

  • Who Googled you? This website knows
  • “After a date, a pitch or a job interview, there’s a good chance you’re going to get Googled. Online reputation manager BrandYourself now helps you figure out who is searching for your name. The startup, which helps individuals control Google results for names through SEO, launched a new feature on Tuesday that shows users where visitors to their BrandYourself profiles work and where they’re located.”

    Ego booster?

  • Amazon gets involved in original content with Amazon Studios
  • “Amazon today announced that Amazon Studios, the company’s original content arm, will expand its focus from films to original television series. Starting today, anyone is invited to head over to the new Amazon Studios page dedicated to original TV content and submit scripts for children’s and comedy shows to Amazon.”

    I didn’t even realize there was an Amazon Studios!

    Business/Consumer/Media/Economy

  • Digital assets, pet care among ‘new frontier’ of estate planning
  • “Your iTunes collection really is a matter of life and death, according to a new report on estate planning by BMO Retirement Institute. Digital assets, alongside caretaking provisions for parents and pets, are named among the top “new frontiers” often overlooked by Canadians when formalizing their final wishes. The report, published Monday, cites the migration of our personal, professional and financial affairs online, the elevated place of pets in families, and longer life expectancy as reasons for the growing importance of these areas.”

    How can you overlook your pets?!?!

  • Fewer Canadian workers online than in ‘developing countries’
  • “Canadian workers are less likely to have access to the Internet at work or have a smartphone — either their own or one provided by their employer — than workers in so-called “developing countries” such as China and India, according to survey results released Wednesday. Surveys done by international staffing firm Randstad found 76 per cent of Canadian workers polled had access to the Internet at work. While that accounts for the vast majority, it was far less than in China and India, which were both at 93 per cent.”

    Crazy.

  • CNN ratings decline stirs worries
  • “‘Maybe CNN is just like an emergency room.’ That is what a longtime CNN employee theorized last year, during one of the channel’s predictable defeats in the Nielsen ratings. When elections and explosions happen, people tune in to CNN, the same way they hurry to a hospital when they think they are having a heart attack. But people tend not to linger in either place — a reality that was reaffirmed for CNN this week when Nielsen ratings showed that April was the channel’s lowest-rated month in 10 years.”

    Despite low ratings, CNN is set to make $600 million in operating profits this year.

    Environment/Space/Animals

  • Dinosaurs were drained of blood by gigantic horror fleas
  • “As if impending extinction wasn’t enough, dinosaurs were also plagued by giant mega-fleas that impaled their soft underbellies and feasted on their blood. The super-fleas, which were around ten times the size of the fleas that bother dogs nowadays had an extra-painful bite because of their huge suckers.”

    Shudder.

  • Polar bears are great swimmers
  • “Polar bears are capable of swimming vast distances, a potential survival skill needed in an Arctic environment where summer sea ice is vanishing, a study led by the U.S. Geological Survey showed on Tuesday.”

    They’ll need it :'( Because we’re destroying their homes. :'(

    Weird News, Other News & Fluff

  • Mom of the year makes her son’s lunch look like awesome art
  • “To say the lunches she makes are just ‘fun’ is an understatement, they’re inspired edible greatness that use popular children’s characters and a wicked imagination to make healthy vegetables and crustless bread awesome.”

    Amazing!! So fun.

  • Canadian web phenomenon Dear Photograph brings heartfelt words, images to print
  • “The instructions are simple: Hold up an old photo in front of the place where it was originally shot, take a picture of the picture, then write a dedication about what the photo means to you. Since the launch of DearPhotograph.com last year, an idea sparked by a snapshot in Kitchener, Ont., has ignited a global phenomenon, setting off a flurry of camera shutters and unleashing a flood of memories among thousands who’ve embraced the nostalgic concept.”

    Such an interesting project.
