Clicks of the Day Current Events Lists

Clicks of the Day: Tuesday, April 3, 2012 Edition!

Welcome to Tuesday, April 3 2012’s Clicks of the Day!

    Edmonton/Alberta/Canada

  • Most major Edmonton road construction sidelined
  • “There will be fewer detour signs around Edmonton this summer as the city’s road construction boom comes to a screeching halt. Only $123 million is being spent this year on 47 jobs, including bridge upgrades and paving collector and major arterial roads, as well as growth projects, says Barry Belcourt, road design and construction branch manager. Last year, there were three times the number of projects and, at $345 million, almost triple the budget.”

    Last year’s construction was crazy… this year seems more reasonable.

  • Edmonton police criticized over posting of teen’s name on Project Operation Warrant Execution website
  • “Edmonton police are being criticized after the identity of a 16-year-old girl wanted on an outstanding criminal warrant was accidentally posted on a police website and released to the media… In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, the EPS says they regretted the incident, saying it should not have occurred.”

    Everyone makes mistakes.

  • How Smith government would impact Edmonton
  • “”The Capital View” continues Tuesday, with a look at what a Wildrose government would mean for Edmonton. Danielle Smith believes her candidates are getting incredible reaction from Edmontonians. Smith says her party’s 10-10 plan gives municipalities the resources they need to take care of the issues that matter to them. ‘Our commitment to municipalities, that would flow through ten per cent of provincial tax revenues and ten per cent of budget surpluses, is going to result in significantly more dollars going down to the municipal level to be spent local infrastructure needs.'”

    Conservatives “Capital View” yesterday, NDP tomorrow! Make sure you’re informing yourself on what all the parties are offering and get out there and vote!

  • F-35 purchase had no plan, costs underestimated: AG report
  • “The Conservative government is publicly underestimating the cost of Canada’s plan to buy next generation stealth fighter jets by at least $9 billion, according the auditor general’s spring report tabled Tuesday. Internal estimates from the Department of National Defence dating back to 2008 peg the cost of purchasing 65 F-35 fighter jets at $25 billion, despite the fact that the government has publicly put the price tag closer to $16 billion.”

    Money waster.

  • RCMP, spy agency shed no light on Anonymous threats against Toews
  • “Representatives of Canada’s electronic surveillance agency and national police force were called before a Commons committee Tuesday to tell politicians all they know about threats posted by online hacker group Anonymous against Public Safety minister Vic Toews. And the answer is: Not much.”

    Lol.

    World

  • California gunman was struggling with personal, financial problems
  • “Mr. Goh, who was born in South Korea… felt disrespected by teasing about his poor English skills at the Oakland school — a college founded as a safe place where Korean immigrants could adjust to a new country and build new careers. So, he bought a gun and a few weeks later took his revenge, opening fire at the college on Monday in a rampage that left six students and a receptionist dead and wounded three more, authorities said.”

    So sad…

  • Tornadoes rip through Dallas area
  • “Tornadoes tore through the Dallas area on Tuesday, tearing roofs off homes, tossing trucks into the air and leaving flattened tractor trailers strewn along highways and parking lots.”

    I would simply not live in “Tornado Alley.” Far too risky.

    Health

  • Vaccine to stop heart attacks could be here in 5 years
  • “A vaccine delivered in an injection or nasal spray to prevent heart attacks could be available within five years. Scientists have discovered that the drug stimulates the body’s immune system to produce antibodies which prevent heart disease by stopping fat building up in the arteries. It is the first time that the underlying cause of heart disease has been targeted. Current treatments focus on using drugs to reduce cholesterol levels and blood pressure.”

    That’d be pretty wonderful.

  • Men, here’s another good reason to eat breakfast
  • “If eating breakfast isn’t part of your regular schedule, consider rethinking your morning routine. Eating breakfast – versus skipping it – has been linked with a healthier weight, improved memory, lower cholesterol and a more nutritious diet. But there’s another reason to eat breakfast every day, particularly if you’re male. According to a new study published online last week, men who routinely missed breakfast had a significantly greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes. And men who ate only once or twice a day were also at increased risk for the disease.”

    Good thing Mike loves his morning cereal! I’m personally not a breakfast person (unless it’s going out to a restaurant to have it lol) though I should probably change my ways.

  • ‘Cancer Barbie’ doll coming to Canadian hospitals
  • “The U.S. maker of the famous Barbie franchise will release a doll next year that is bald in support of children who have cancer and lose their hair in treatment, a Mattel spokesman said Tuesday. The decision to launch the new doll, which Mattel described as “a friend of Barbie,” was made after a massive Facebook appeal drew over 157,000 supporters to the cause of urging the doll-maker to consider a version for sick kids.”

    Impressive that this came to fruition.

  • Many little kids lack outdoor time with parents
  • “Half of preschoolers don’t spend time playing outside with a parent each day, according to results from a recent survey. In interviews with parents of close to 9,000 kids, less than half of moms and only a quarter of dads reported taking their child for a walk or playing with them in the yard or park at least once a day.”

    My parents certainly never had any time to play outside with me lol. I think I turned out okay but for my future children I hope to make the outdoors a bigger part of their lives!

  • The Best Birth Control In The World Is For Men
  • “If I were going to describe the perfect contraceptive, it would go something like this: no babies, no latex, no daily pill to remember, no hormones to interfere with mood or sex drive, no negative health effects whatsoever, and 100 percent effectiveness. The funny thing is, something like that currently exists. The procedure called RISUG in India (reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance) takes about 15 minutes with a doctor, is effective after about three days, and lasts for 10 or more years.”

    Hm. Interesting.

  • When Do Babies Stop Being So Darned Cute? Age 4 1/2, Scientists Say
  • “The stage between preschool and kindergarten marks the point at which little kids are no longer considered unbearably adorable. Or at least that’s what the research shows.”

    Lol pretty funny. Side note: I don’t care what anyone says… not all babies are cute!!

    Technology/Social Media

  • On the brink of the next era in supercomputing
  • “Imagine a single supercomputer able to out-perform 50 million laptops, and capable of performing a staggering one quintillion (billion billion) operations per second. Expect that supercomputer to be operating this decade, experts say.”

    Not surprising.

  • Self-sculpting sand robots are under development at MIT
  • “Tiny robots that can join together to form functional tools and then split apart again after use might be ready for market in little more than a decade, according to researchers.”

    Sounds very Transformers. And we must note there were evil Transformers.

  • Instagram releases Android app
  • “Instagram announced Tuesday that it has finally published its Android application to the Google Play market. The wildly popular photo app has quickly wormed its way into the artsy hearts of iOS lovers but had not yet been available on Google’s smartphone platform. The app works with Android versions 2.2 (Froyo) and above, and allows sharing to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Foursquare. Support for Flickr, the app’s marketplace site says, is “coming very soon.””

    Instagram is taking over the world! ;)

    Business/Consumer/Media/Economy

  • How does your paycheque compare to the rest of the world?
  • “If you cringe when you check your bank account balance after pay day, consider this: Canada ranks 12th in the world for having the highest wages… The calculations showed that the average wage earner makes about $1,480 a month, which is less than $18,000 USD a year. In Canada, the average monthly wage is $2,724.”

    Interesting.

  • ‘Pink slime’ forces ground beef processor into bankruptcy
  • “Ground beef processor AFA Foods filed for bankruptcy protection on Monday, citing negative media publicity over “pink slime,” the ammonia-treated beef filler which the company sells as finely textured beef. Public reluctance to consume products containing pink slime led to major fast-food chains, including McDonald’s and Burger King, to drop AFA Foods beef filler. ”

    Well no one wants to eat pink slime. They shouldn’t have been producing this in the first place.

    Environment/Space/Animals/Evolution

  • Women, be picky when it comes to mates. The world depends on it
  • “Men, hear this: The world needs picky females. When it comes to mating, the choosy ones keep a species alive and thriving. “This is an important message because it changes the sexual selection process of evolution from a backseat role to the driver’s seat,” explains Leithen M’Gonigle, lead author of a study published online this week in Nature. At least, that is, with fish, birds and insects.”

    Lol. Interesting.

    Weird News, Other News & Fluff

  • [Video]: Alberta Election 2012: 22 Minutes Gives Hilarious Take On Race
  • “Justin Trudeau’s boxing victory and the federal budget dominated political headlines this week, but “This Hour Has 22 Minutes” isn’t ignoring the Alberta election. They’re paying attention to the heated battle between Conservative Premier Alison Redford and Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith — even though they can’t tell the difference between the two women.”

    Hahaha.

  • Flying car is unveiled, but really, how practical is it?
  • “A flying car is being unveiled this week at the New York Auto Show, and we can’t help but wonder: If the roads are jam-packed with crazy drivers now, what would it be like if they all had flying cars? The manufacturer, Terrafugia of Woborn, Mass., reports that it’s already received more than 100 preorders for its flying car — the Transition. The $279,000 dual-use vehicle sports folding wings and rugged, all-terrain wheels that will allow it to transition smoothly from the driveway to the roadway to the runway and beyond.”

    I’ll stick to the ground for now but it’s only a matter of time until we’re all just zipping around up there!

  • Canada ranks 5th happiest country in world: UN report
  • “Canadians are a cheery bunch — but Quebecers are the cheeriest of us all, according to a new United Nations report on the state of global happiness. The first-ever World Happiness Report revealed that the last 25 years have been especially satisfying for francophone Quebecers, compared to Canadians in other provinces. As a country, Canada ranked fifth behind a quartet of northern European nations — Denmark, Finland, Norway and the Netherlands, in that order — but well ahead of the United States and the United Kingdom, which ranked 11th and 18th, respectively out of 156.”

    I do feel like we’re all pretty happy go lucky people :)

  • Best cities in Canada to find a sugar daddy
  • “When it comes to Canadian sugar daddies, the enterprising young lady has a choice between quantity and quality. Toronto has the most sugar daddies per capita, but Victoria has the most generous ones, according to data compiled by a website that matches older, rich men with younger, attractive women willing to exchange, um, company for presents. The average Canadian sugar daddy is 40 years old and makes about a quarter of a million dollars a year.”

    Yuck. Marry for love, not money.

  • Cat Saved Me, Moose Jaw Man Says
  • “A man who escaped from a massive fire at an apartment in Moose Jaw, Sask., says he might not be alive today if it wasn’t for his cat, Chloe. Shawn Delorme says he was fast asleep and might have perished if the calico kitty hadn’t leapt on his pillow, meowed loudly and scratched his face.”

    Gotta love cats! Also I love how I was browsing through all the different articles about this topic and all of them were basically ‘fire destroys centurys’ old building, firefighters fight blaze, etc. etc.’ and then there’s this one – ‘Cat Saved Me’ lol.

  • [Video]: Interspecies Intermingling of the Day
  • “Although cats and roosters don’t always get along, this kitty is quite enamored with his avian pal.”

    SOOOOO cute.

  • [Video]: Kitten Marshamllow: 4 weeks old and counting
  • “Meet Marshmallow, a wisp of a kitten born March 1.”

    Soooooo teeny!!! Aww.


Thor and (or) Loki Photo of the Day:

Not enough space in there for both of them really but Loki likes to get close, lol.

Rostizado is a modern-Mexican restaurant that uses fresh, quality local ingredients prepared in traditional-Mexican rosticeria fashion: slow-cooked and hearty. Their platters are a must-try: with rotisserie chicken, beef, and Cuban-Style pork shoulder. We also love their crispy potatoes, roasted cauliflower and various queso dips. They have an awesome lunch deal and the churros are to die for. Rostizado has a great vibe, cool decor, excellent service and a meal here is always a good time!

Bündok is a pretty cool place on 104 Street, serving up delicious and beautifully-plated food. Their brunch menu includes both bistro and brunch options. There's french toast, eggs benny, omelettes and sausages, but the bistro dishes are my favourite - like sea bream crudo and chicken liver. Yuuuum!! Although this giveaway is for brunch, you also have to try their regular lunch and dinner menu. Bündok's gnocchi is unbelievable. Bündok should most certainly be on your list for a visit!

They also have a huge salad bar and unbelievably delicious Brazilian cheese buns (#paodequeijo!) Pampa has two Edmonton locations (downtown + Ellerslie) and one location in Calgary!
