Clicks of the Day Current Events Lists

Clicks of the Day: Monday, September 19, 2011 Edition!

Welcome to Monday, September 19 2011’s Clicks of the Day!

  • Spiky Newborn Dinosaur Found in D.C. Beltway
  • “A five-inch-long baby dinosaur with a short nose, armor and spikes went belly-up and likely drowned in what is now the Washington, D.C. beltway, say scientists, who describe the find as a new species as well as the first hatchling of any dinosaur species ever recovered in the eastern United States.”

    The illustration of it is awesome. Sad that it likely drowned in the river (scientists say) :(

  • Farmers flee as world’s deadliest volcano rumbles
  • “Villagers like Hasanuddin Sanusi have heard since they were young how the mountain they call home once blew apart in the largest eruption ever recorded — an 1815 event widely forgotten outside their region — killing 90,000 people and blackening skies on the other side of the globe.”

    Eep. Yeah better not to risk hanging around that.

  • Police investigating homicide 38 after new charge laid in death of Edmonton senior
  • “he death of an 84-year-old Edmonton woman following a break-in at an Edmonton senior’s lodge is now being investigated as a homicide.”

    Edmonton is at 38 homicides now. Our record is 39. I see that being easily reached/passed. Which is sad. This particular case is so sad, she was just a senior sleeping in her fricken home. Some people are sick.

  • MasterCard shows off mobile payments
  • “PayPass is a payment method that lets you tap a credit card or a phone with an NFC chip in it to make a payment. ”

    Future of shopping?

  • Netflix Splits DVD Delivery and Streaming Services into Two Separate Sites
  • Hm. Well I don’t use Netflix at all so this all does not affect me but I know it’s got others talkin’

  • Cup Noodles Museum
  • “The Cup Noodles Museum, built to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the production of the first Cup Noodles by Nissin Foods Holdings founder Momofuku Ando, will open to the public on Saturday in Yokohama, Japan.”

    Lol, awesome!

  • Apple Stock Hits Highest Level Ever
  • “Apple Inc. stock reached its highest level ever Monday, hitting $413.23 in intraday trading even as the broader market declined.”

    Ah, Apple <3

  • Hanged: A special series about the history of capital punishment in Alberta
  • “A total of 62 people were hanged in Alberta over the course of 81 years until Canada placed a moratorium the death penalty in 1967. Each week until Oct. 30, 2011, Edmonton Journal writer Jana G. Pruden will tell the stories of some of those who were sentenced to death.”

    Cool historical feature section of the Edmonton Journal on some stories about people who were sentenced to death in Alberta. Looking forward to reading! Historical crime is fascinating (though, usually gruesome and sick). The first one up, about Swift Runner – who was hung for murder/cannibalism, is extra interesting because of this line:

    “Others said he had been possessed by the Windigo, a flesh-eating spirit that tormented him and gave him nightmares.”

    Ah the supernatural. #SoInteresting

  • 6 Serious Health Benefits Of Apples
  • “Eating an apple before you work out may boost your exercise endurance. Apples deliver an antioxidant called quercetin, which aids endurance by making oxygen more available to the lungs.”

    Cool beans. I’ve started eating apples again recently so this is a nice read :)

  • Gamers Decode AIDS Protein That Stumped Researchers For 15 Years In Just 3 Weeks
  • “A 15-year-old AIDS problem was recently solved in just three weeks using a new online game site that allows users to contribute in decoding complex proteins.”

    Fantastic. +1 for video gamers.

  • iPad 3 Release Date: 2012 More Likely Than 2011, Analyst Says
  • “A dubious proposition from the outset, a rumoured fall iPad update is looking increasingly unlikely.”

    Fine by me! We don’t want too much of an Apple/tech product overload…

  • [Video]: Cat & Printer
  • “Another day, another cat is harassed by a common household printer.”

    LOL. I really need to get on uploading videos of Thor.

  • [Video]: Kitty in a Dixie Cup
  • TOO CUTE! The music also adds to the adorable factor.

  • Today’s Big Thing: Earth Time Lapse From Space
  • “So this is what it feels like to watch a video about what it feels like to fly over Earth.”

    Earth is so beautiful.

  • The Vivo Pizza 🍕 at @vivoristoranteyeg is SO tasty! Pulled chicken, signature Vivo sauce, grana padano 🧀 Tried a lot of great dishes tonight at #VivoDowntown (behind #MacEwanU) for their new #happyhour #aperitivo menu launch including this one. Good deals, Monday to Friday 3-6 p.m., and 11-6 on weekends too! It was also really nice to meet Vivo @ChefMedi. He's so passionate about his craft. 🙏🏻 And he put together a gluten-free 🍕 for @theporkgirl that was stellar! 👌🏻

  • An Instagrammable Wall blast from my past! I used to work at @globaledmonton doing a bunch of things over a few years.. video editing, web producing, news producing, writing and helping people in the Troubleshooter department! Been wanting to photograph this wall for awhile now (#IGWallsofYEG) and finally did this weekend. ☺️Apparently it's also a #PokemonGo hot spot lol. 😅

  • Had an awesome time touring Instagrammable Walls of Chinatown / east Downtown this weekend with my co-host @britl & this great group of people! There is no shortage of things to do in Edmonton in the summer so I definitely appreciated these guys choosing an #IGWallsofYEG #photowalk! 🙏🏻 This wall is called #ThunderBirdAlley on 105 Ave between 96 and 97 Street. 👌🏻 Would largely go unnoticed for those walking or driving along 97 Street but definitely deserves some attention! Another walk is in the works for September, stay tuned! ☺️

  • Dreaming of gelato. 💕🍧 I was out in #SturgeonCounty tonight at the annual Sturgeon County Bounty #CulinaryCookout and this raspberry lime gelato from @davincigelato was lovely. The #SturgeonCountyBounty is such a stellar event - think Taste of Edmonton & Heritage Festival with awesome #tasteab food but more of a relaxed, less crowded environment, great portion sizes / value, that fresh country air and lovely live music! Mark your calendars for next year- add it to your summer festival list! Check my IG Stories and my pal @argenplath's feed for more scenes from the festival! 😊

  • A feast for dinner tonight with @littlmissandrea and our baes at the new Nara Chicken & Tonkatsu on the west end! 😋 We basically tried their whole menu 😅 and thought it was great! A pretty casual spot in a strip mall, with quick service, affordable prices, and tasty dishes! Welcome to the neighbourhood, Nara. 👋🏻
