A Penny Saved – Shot Show
485 Scientific Papers Published in 2017 Undermine Supposed ‘Consensus’ on Climate Change
A broad survey of climate change literature for 2017 reveals that the alleged “consensus” behind the dangers of anthropogenic global warming is not nearly as settled among climate scientists as people imagine.
Author Kenneth Richard found that during the course of the year 2017, at least 485 scientific papers were published that in some way questioned the supposed consensus regarding the perils of human CO2 emissions or the efficacy of climate models to predict the future.
According to Richard’s analysis, the 485 new papers underscore the “significant limitations and uncertainties inherent in our understanding of climate and climate changes,” which in turn suggests that climate science is not nearly as settled as media reports and some policymakers would have people believe.
Canadian grocers make $3M per year from penny-rounding: UBC study
Grocery stores across the country are cashing in on the demise of the penny, according to a young researcher at the University of British Columbia.
Third-year economics and mathematics student Christina Cheng has written a paper that says Canadian grocers are making $3.27 million per year from penny-rounding.
Ottawa announced plans in 2012 to phase out the copper coin, and as a result, cash purchases are now rounded up or down to the nearest five-cent increment.
Cheng wanted to know whether the change was benefiting shoppers or stores.
“Penny-rounding always becomes a guessing game,” the 19-year-old explained. “It’s a fun guessing game because it might not hurt in the short
Trudeau Wasteful Spending
GLOBALISM: Under Trudeau, Canada Spends Over $10 Billion In Foreign Aid
Justin Trudeau calls himself a “citizen of the world,” and wants Canada to be a “post-national state.” It seems he is putting those words into action, to the detriment of the Canadian people.
While it’s no big surprise that he would be willing to give so much taxpayer money away outside of our country, the sheer scale of the spending is shocking.
According to CIJ News, the Canadian Government gives away $10 billion in foreign aid every year. Even more money was just announced by the government, sending $119.25 million to Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen.
Canadians rightfully angry after Ottawa pays $31.25M to men falsely imprisoned in Syria
The federal government has paid settlements totalling just over $31 million to three men falsely accused of links to terror groups, then imprisoned and tortured in Syria in the early 2000s.
Ottawa announced earlier this year that it had settled with Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad El Maati and Muayyed Nureddin.
None of the three men has ever been charged with any terror-related offence. They have all denied ever participating in any terror activity.
Keeping the ‘Trade’ in Trade Show with a Little Help from Our Friends
For the last several years, we’ve worked to eliminate people who have no professional affiliation with the firearms industry from attending the SHOT Show and taking up your valuable time.
We’ve made great progress through changes to our registration process, and this year, with much help from our exhibitors, we’ve made even more progress. Thanks in large part to exhibitor compliance with a request to not exceed their badge allotment — and a new registration system for exhibitors — the number of unqualified attendees invited by exhibiting companies has been reduced.
