CBC could learn a thing or two from Knowledge Network

CBC could learn a thing or two from Knowledge Network Documentaries and kids’ programming are winners with continually growing audiences If CBC executives have a transformational vision for its post-hockey era, they certainly haven’t articulated it. Aside from cutting jobs, services and selling assets in response to having lost the cash cow of Hockey Night in Canada, there is no blueprint for how CBC will be more relevant and interesting to Canadians. There is no bold suggestion such as maybe reverting to a commercial-free service like the BBC, PBS, Knowledge Network, TV Ontario and CBC Radio, which any ardent CBC… View Article

Corruption Making Americans Feel Less Free

Obama Admin Corruption Making Americans Feel Less Free Americans feel less free and are more dissatisfied with the “freedom to chose what they do with their lives” since President Barack Obama took office. Gallup concluded that was largely the case due to Obama’s scandals and poor economy. A Gallup survey found that percentage of Americans who are “satisfied with the freedom to choose what they do with their lives” dropped from 91% in 2006 to 79% in 2013. During that same period, Americans who “dissatisfied with the freedom to choose what they do with their lives more than doubled, from… View Article

Census Shows White Deaths Outpace Births

Census Shows White Deaths Outpace Births Other factors underscoring a changing country include a baby boom in big cities. For the second year in a row, the number of non-Hispanic white deaths in 2013 outweighed the number of white births, signaling an increasingly older and diversified American public. It is a trend that’s likely to continue for a while, as traditionally minority groups become the majority of the U.S. population. As a result of its slower growth rate, compared with other groups, the number of non-Hispanic white individuals declined to 62.6 percent of the total overall population in 2013 from… View Article

Don Cherry overlooked for Order of Canada once again

  Don Cherry overlooked for Order of Canada once again Don Cherry doesn’t need the Order of Canada to validate his importance to Canada — or his love of the country, either. And that’s a good thing because it doesn’t look like he will ever receive one. Most involved in the behind-the-scenes, decade-long movement to try to ensure Cherry joins this exclusive club were counting on this being the year he would finally get his due. Grapes turned 80 in March and Hockey Night in Canada is no longer a CBC entity. Cherry is coming out of an incredible era… View Article

Liberals turn momentum into wins in Toronto

Liberals turn momentum into wins in Toronto, strong showing in Alberta Monday’s four federal byelections made one thing clear: Justin Trudeau’s Liberals have momentum on their side. The Liberals stole one riding — the coveted Trinity-Spadina in downtown Toronto — from the NDP, easily held another Toronto riding and gave the Conservatives a run for their money in the Tory bastion of Fort McMurray-Athabasca, in Alberta’s oilsands heartland. The Conservatives handily retained another Alberta riding, Macleod, but even there, Liberal support almost quadrupled. The results reflect just how far the Liberals, reduced to a third-party rump in 2011, have...

Porn on the Brain – Inventions Useful and Oddball

Porn on the Brain – Inventions Useful and Oddball We realise that for some of you, the following news may be akin to Christmas being cancelled, but watching too much porn may be bad for your brain. A new study by German researchers revealed that men who overdose on porn not only have less grey matter but there is less activity going on. It’s not clear, for example, whether watching porn leads to brain changes or whether people born with certain brain types watch more porn, said Simone Kühn, the study’s lead author from the Max Planck Institute for Human… View Article

Rob Ford: ‘I had become my own worst enemy’

Rob Ford: ‘I had become my own worst enemy’ Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says he’s sorry for some of the things he did when using drugs and alcohol, but he’s resolved to make changes in his life following a stint in rehab. “When I look back on some of the things I have said and some of the things I did when I was using, I am ashamed, embarrassed and humiliated,” Ford told reporters at an invitation-only news conference Monday, when he returned to city hall after a two-month absence.

Profiteering on Banker Deaths

Profiteering on Banker Deaths: Regulator Says Public Has No Right to Details A man with a long history of keeping big bank secrets safe from the public’s prying eyes has denied the appeal filed by Wall Street On Parade to obtain specifics about the worker deaths upon which JPMorgan Chase pockets the life insurance money each year.
