Clicks of the Day Current Events Lists

Clicks of the Day: Monday, September 26, 2011 Edition!

Welcome to Monday, September 26 2011’s Clicks of the Day!

  • DISLIKE: Logging out won’t stop Facebook spying on you
  • “FACEBOOK users have given a big thumbs down to the social networking site after it emerged their web activity is being tracked – even after logging out.”

    Geez…

  • Amazon’s Tablet: The iPad’s Biggest Threat
  • “Amazon’s tablet, reportedly named the Kindle Fire, could be the first Android device to effectively challenge Apple’s iPad. Or it could end up as just another over-hyped, under-performing tablet steamrolled by the Apple juggernaut.”

    Probably the latter, lol. But good effort.

  • Global News takes Canada’s pulse
  • “Global News will launch a week-long dialogue with Canadians on-air and online starting Monday, Sept. 26. Discover how Canadians feel about everything from the economy, technology, crime, health care, their sex lives and much more.”

    Lots to read here. Good statistics, good insight into Canadian opinions on important topics. Was surprised to read this:

    “Seventy-one per cent of residents in Edmonton approve of same-sex marriage, less than in any other big Canadian city.”

    Come on, Edmonton! Although 71% seems pretty high so I guess in general – good job Canada on same-sex marriage approval!

  • Corpse found alive in Brazilian morgue
  • “A woman was pronounced dead and sent to a hospital morgue in Brazil – despite being alive and breathing at the time.”

    One of my fears. How are you wrongly pronounced dead…

  • Mayan film documentary claims proof of aliens
  • “A new documentary about Mayan civilization will provide evidence of extraterrestrial contact with the ancient culture.”

    COOL. I absolutely believe aliens have made contact. Especially in ancient times.

  • Top 10 Most Beautiful Drives in the United States
  • “We’ve compiled a list of 10 of the most beautiful and scenic drives in the United States. We’ll take you from Hawaii to Alaska and many places in between. ”

    I’ve driven down the PCH in California. Very pretty <3

  • Sharing your Coke: Marketing Genius or Just Entirely Weird?
  • “In what seems like another new and interesting marketing move, the makers of Coke, Coca-cola Amital are trying to find another way to appeal to consumers.”

    Interesting!

  • World’s biggest lightsaber battle looks like a giant rave
  • “Star Wars fans from all over the East Coast crossed lightsabers at New York City’s Washington Square Park for what might be the world’s largest lightsaber battle.”

    Very cool! Very pretty :)

  • A Visual History of Literary References on ‘The Simpsons’
  • “From The Bell Jar to Moneyball, from Gore Vidal to Tom Wolfe, countless books and authors have guest-starred on America’s longest-running sitcom.”

    Very intelligent show, really. I love The Simpsons! :D

  • It’s three galaxies in one for Arp 272
  • “What we have here are two galaxies merging together in your standard collision…and then a third galaxy sidling in, just to complete the intergalactic chaos.”

    Really cool.

  • Biologists celebrate comeback of endangered ferret
  • “Huge strides in recovery three decades after species was believed extinct.”

    Well done ferrets!!!!

  • New dinosaur species discovered in Alberta
  • “Two decades after the fossils of a duck-billed dinosaur were discovered in Alberta’s Peace Country, scientists announced on Monday that the creature is part of a new species.”

    Squeal! Dinosaurs rock. Can you believe dinosaurs once stood on the very ground you stand on! :D

  • Hanged: Making the least of your second chance (Garry Barrett)
  • This week’s Hanged article. Cool feature by the Edmonton Journal that I linked in a previous Clicks of the Day. Great read if you’re into crime/historical crime/history.

  • Today’s Big Thing: Weather Graphics, Sensitivity Not Working for Newscast
  • “There’s a chance of morning showers with a guarantee of afternoon graphics guy firing.”

    Oh my god, lol graphics/system fail.

Thor loves drinking from the sink! <3

  • I came for the #Instagrammable Skating Rink. 💕 I think that probably sounds silly, but I do love how “Instagrammable” spaces can encourage people to #ExploreEdmonton! Had a lovely double date at the lovely Victoria Park Oval & Freezeway with @mikethyking, @littlmissandrea & Gordon! ⛸👯‍♀️👯‍♂️

  • Ohhhhh so many feelings. ❤️ I had such an incredible experience watching @traviswall’s @shapingsoundco AND finally meeting Travis! Fun fact: I used to run a fan page for Travis back during his early #SoYouThinkYouCanDance days. He said he used to check the page for updates on himself, lol. 😂❤️ Thank you to the @albertaballetcanada for inviting me to see this phenomenal show with just the most ridiculously talented dancers! 💃🏻🕺 and for asking me to host the pre-show #DanceTalks Q&A. 🤓 Thanks to @nikolevallins for arranging the meet & greet 📸 and thanks to my old friend @jasmine.topham for coming & sharing in the #SYTYCD love! So happy. ❤️

  • When it’s -32C out ☃️, there’s no better food choice. 🍜 I warm right up with my mom’s pho at @KingNoodleHouse! (and you can too! 😉) I’m also excited to share that @KingNoodleHouse is participating in Edmonton’s first-ever #ChinatownDiningWeek! We’re offering a $15 two-course dinner option - your choice of a large bowl of pho + a spring roll & grilled pork balls platter. There are 4 other great restaurants in the area participating too. Learn more on my blog! (link in bio 👩🏻‍💻)

  • I’m such a sucker for eggs on anything—especially on poutine—ESPECIALLY with shoestring skinny fries. 😍 This is The Cure from @centralsocialhall, with red wine gravy, avocado, bacon and a roasted poblano + white cheddar sauce. It’s eggcellent! 🍳🍟😋

  • It’s a new year so I wanted to introduce myself to new followers & reintroduce myself to old. 😉👋🏻 Thanks so much for following me!
I really appreciate it. 💕
I tend to post a lot of photos of food ( 🤤) and family (specifically my husband and best friend @mikethyking, and our four furbabes @OliveAndArtie 🐶🐶 and Thor and Loki 🐱🐱).
I love to #ExploreEdmonton & #TravelAlberta — or travel anywhere really ✈️, and I will often invite you to read my blog posts (link in bio 👩🏻‍💻), and often partner with great businesses that let me run a lot of fun giveaways for you! 
My family owns a pretty popular Vietnamese pho 🍜  restaurant in #yegchinatown called @kingnoodlehouse and I have a pretty great #socialmedia job at a marketing and communications agency called @calderbateman. 
I love taking photos — in the last year I started mapping out Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton (#IGWallsofYEG) 📸 and love finding them wherever I travel. 
I’m also the Founder of the Edmonton International Cat Festival (#YEGCatFest) 😻, the only event of its kind of Canada, that celebrates cats, cat people, and cat culture, while raising money for local cat rescues. The next fest is May 26 (mark your calendars!)
I care deeply about the work I do, and tend to say “yes” (maybe more often than I should). I can also sometimes be impatient. 😅
It might seem like I’m always out and about which isn’t untrue, but I also spend a serious amount of time watching Netflix (who’s with me? 🙋🏻‍♀️)
This Instagram feed, along with all my posts on social media and blog, are just highlights of my life. I love seeing your highlights too!
So that’s just a little a bit about me. Thanks again for following me, liking my posts, leaving comments, sending messages and watching my Stories. I really do appreciate it, and feel grateful that you’re interested in connecting with me. Looking forward to what 2018 brings! ✨
Also, this photo is from the lovely Edmonton Ice Castles, which reopens for the season this Friday. It’s an awesome place to visit, so make sure you go! ❄️
