Reader Concerned About Phishing Email

Don,

Could you put something on SAP to alert all Shaw users? I’d very much appreciate it?? I sent an email to Shaw (below).

Thanks.

Cheers,

Jim Starko

Subject: FW: ALERT!
Importance: High

To Whom It May Concern At Shaw:

I received the email message below in my Inbox on my shaw.ca email account on Thursday afternoon. I think it’s something that your users should be made aware of. This is “spam” and whoever is sending this is looking to collect people’s personal information for identity theft or otherwise. Of course, I did not respond to the email message and am reporting it to you.

Please advise what you intend to do about this?

Also here is the offending email:

SINC SAYS:

These types of phishing scams are a dime a dozen Jim. I get them all the time from people pretending to be Telus too. RULE ONE: No company will ever email you and ask for that type of information. Check the email's return address, does it look like anything Shaw would use? Nope. Delete it and forget it.

Drinking Alcohol May Significantly Enhance Problem Solving

Drinking Alcohol
Drinking alcohol may enhance a person’s problem solving skills, according to a new study.

Scientists found that men who either drank two pints of beer or two glasses of wine before solving brain teasers not only got more questions right, they also were quicker in delivering correct answers, compared to men who answered the questions sober.

While the latest findings go against the traditional beliefs that alcohol impairs analytical thinking and rational thoughts, lead author Professor Jennifer Wiley of the University of Illinois at Chicago discovered that alcohol may enhance creativity problem solving by reducing the mind’s working memory capacity, which is the ability to concentrate on something in particular.

Beer anyone?

The Older Crowd

An older gentleman was on the operating table awaiting surgery and he insisted that his son, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation.

As he was about to get the anesthesia, he asked to speak to his son.

"Yes, Dad, what is it?"

"Don't be nervous, son; do your best, and just remember, if it doesn't go well, if something happens to me, your mother is going to come and live with you and your wife."

How To Make A Bird Feeder

One of my more recent trips to Hawerlak Park, I came across this bird feeder made out of a plastic one litre milk container.

The design is simple and very easy to build. The feeder is secured to the tree with nylon rope. This would make a good project for kids to build a feeder for a Mother's Day present.

bird_feeder_apr2_12

The container needs to be well rinsed out with water.  Cut an opening with a knife or scissors about two inches from the bottom of the container. The opening should be four inches or bigger if you so desire.

You will need to leave extra plastic at the top that forms a rain gutter and at the bottom that helps stiffen the plastic to form a perch for the birds to perch on.

Watching them feed is entertaining and will also provide a backdrop to photograph them. Chickadees are my favourite because they are so friendly.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

The Doctor Visit

The Doctors Visit
During a visit to my doctor, I asked him, "How do you determine whether or not an older person should be put in an old age home?"

"Well," he said, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the person to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," I said. "A normal person would use the bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No" he said. "A normal person would pull the plug. Would you like a bed near the window?"

Remembering Hollywood Squares

Remembering Hollywood Squares
These great questions and answers are from the days when 'Hollywood Squares' game show responses were spontaneous, not scripted. Peter Marshall was the host asking the questions, of course.

Q. According to Ann Landers, is there anything wrong with getting into the habit of kissing a lot of people?

A. Charley Weaver: It got me out of the army.

Q. It is the most abused and neglected part of your body, what is it?

A. Paul Lynde: Mine may be abused, but it certainly isn't neglected.

Demonstrations To Mark Child Abuse

April 11, 2012, marks one year since 4-month-old Delonna Sullivan died within six days of being mistakenly apprehended into child protective custody.
See Edmonton Sun story.

Details of plans for two events/dates to celebrate the short life of baby Delonna, raise awareness, effect change and shine a light on this very dark issue follow. Stigma attached to Child Welfare has largely resulted in misinformation towards who actually comprise the Child Welfare System: AADL (Alberta Aids to Daily Living) reports with Government data: “70% of children in care” are children with special needs.

All across our great Country the mortality rate of children in "protection" is soaring above that of the rest of the child population. Alberta's own Grave Legacy: “We Apprehend the most children in the world.” – Muriel Stanley Venne, Aboriginal Leader.

Well-meaning as many are in the System, innocent children desperately need help. The most vulnerable are suffering loss of life. 13-year-old Samantha Martin, is one of the casualties: Velvet Martin and her family experienced first-hand negative effects as parents to a child born with disability referred to the System for supports, but instead out of home placement culminated in tragedy.

Velvet sought Amendment to Provincial Legislation which
was achieved retroactive December 2006.

Alberta FSCD (Family Support for Children with Disabilities) Act, Section 2-3, Manual Amendments: Policy and Procedures in Family Centred Supports and Services. SAMANTHA'S LAW "The Family Support for Children with Disabilities Program to have separate legislation from that of child protection services."

Protecting Canadian Children will be hosting both Edmonton and Calgary events:

ANNOUNCEMENT:

Wednesday, April 11, 2012, 11:00 a.m., Edmonton

Members from Protecting Canadian Children in New Brunswick and Ontario will be in Alberta to help support Family Preservation. Alfredine (Linda) Plourde, Founder and Author of Protecting Canadian Children will be in attendance at both demonstrations.

The date was chose specifically in recognition of little Delonna Victoria Sullivan, baby daughter of Jamie Sullivan and granddaughter of Marilyn Koren who died six days following apprehension by the Province. Everyone is encouraged to come out and celebrate the life of Baby Delonna Sullivan and pay respect to surviving family. Protecting Canadian Children representatives will also travel to Calgary to meet southern residents on Friday, April 13th at the Court House.

We will meet on the steps of the Edmonton Alberta Legislature on Wednesday morning at 11:00 a.m. Hope to see many of you there!

Following the event at the Edmonton Legislature, those who wish to offer continued support are welcome to attend the Office of Child & Youth Family Services, where Delonna was apprehended: Leduc Neighborhood Centre, Human Services, 4901 - 50 Avenue, Leduc, AB.

Friday, April 13, 2012, 11:00 am, Calgary

A walk will begin at Olympic Plaza and end with a
Rally at the McDougal Centre.

APRIL marks Awareness against Child Abuse.

Our children need us! We must continue this battle to mourn for the dead and protect the living! Our children need us!

Politicians are encouraged to attend events to show Canadians that they value our Country’s greatest resource: Our CHILDREN.

A Dark Knight

A Dark Knight
A knight went off to fight in the Holy Crusades but before leaving he made his wife wear a chastity belt. After tightly securing it to her, he handed the key to his best friend with the instruction: "If I do not return within seven years, unlock my wife and set her free to lead a normal life."

The knight then rode off on the first leg of his journey to the Holy Land, but he had only traveled barely an hour when he was suddenly aware of the sound of pounding hooves behind him. He turned to see that it was his best friend.

"What is the problem?" asked the knight.

His best friend replied: "You gave me the wrong key."

NO To Arts Gallery

On April 2, Council referred the AH&F proposal for a $4.6 million gallery to the Capital Budget Process, instead of approving allocating money to it immediately.  This is a delay, but this project will be supported by at least Crouse, Heron and Brodhead during the capital budget.

 
The Gazette, on Saturday April 6, printed an editorial that was pretty straightforward about the project and why it was not needed. Read it here.
 
artgallery
You now have another opportunity to let Council and the public know your views on expenditures of this type.  Why?  Because the AH&F is organizing a letter writing campaign to try to garner Council support.  As a result, you may want to make Council (e-mail or phone calls) and the Gazette (letter to the editor) aware of your thoughts on the issue.
 
Please consider doing so.
 
Thanks you, and I hope to see you at this months meeting, April 24, 7:30 pm at the Community Hall.
 
Lynda Flannery
Director and Past President
St. Albert Taxpayers Association

SINC SAYS:

Will the people over at Arts And Heritage Foundation never stop begging for more money out of taxpayers pockets? It's time to call a full stop on these out-of-control artsy types and tell them the joy ride is over. Council needs to grow some cajones and tell them, sorry, but the answer is no. So please follow Lynda's advice and counter that AHF letter writing campaign with some letters of our own. Here is a list of council member's email addresses for your convenience:

Nolan Crouse: mayor@st-albert.net
Cathy Heron:

Don:

Wiebo Ludwig has left us, at a youthful age 70. One regrets his passing. I'll take more Wiebos, and fewer of the round-heeled and weak-kneed.

Here's a rather respectful in memoriam.

At his funeral, I'd think this old black hymn would be appropriate: "And before I'll be a slave I'll be buried in a my grave. And go home to my Lord and be free."

Deane Doucette

He was a man who stood tall for his beliefs, but I supect he took more than a few secrets to his grave.

Paul Finn (Guitar)

Joe Piccolo (Sax and vocals)

Paul
- gigged for years with many top notch blues acts and artists. Paul also hosted the famous Saturday afternoon blues jam at the King Eddie in Calgary for years and has toured across our great country on numerous occasions. He is a mainstay and very respected bass guitarist on the blues scene and a total fireball on the guitar. Paul's passion for the blues speaks for itself through his music when he is on stage.

Joe - his musical influences come from growing up in Windsor and he has played with the royalty of the blues in the Detroit scene. Whether you want  to jump the blues or rock the night away, Piccolo's lively vocals and sax will rock the house. Joe’s musical background is rooted in the history of the Motor City Blues and R&B tradition. Fronting and playing tenor saxophone along side such Detroit legends as Sir Mack Rice (original Mustang Sally), international blues legend Lazy Lester, Chicago Pete, Alberta Adams (W.C.Handy award nominee), R.J. Spangler (W.C. Handy nominee), and Mr. Joe Weaver (Funk Brothers, Standing in the Shadow of Motown), Piccolo has honed his craft under the finest of Detroit Blues and R&B royalty. This will be a second time appearance with Paul Finn back to our fan base by special request.

Just One Question

Just One Question
The room was full of pregnant women with their husbands.

The instructor said, "Ladies, remember that exercise is good for you, walking is especially beneficial. It strengthens the pelvic muscles and will make delivery that much easier. Just pace yourself, make plenty of stops and try to stay on a soft surface like grass or a path."

"Gentlemen, remember, you're in this together. It wouldn't hurt you to go walking with her. In fact, that shared experience would be good for you both."

The room suddenly became very quiet as the men absorbed this information. After a few moments a man, name unknown, at the back of the room, slowly raised his hand.

"Yes?" said the Instructor.

"I was just wondering if it would be all right if she carries a golf bag while we walk?"

Brings a tear to your eye doesn't it? That kind of sensitivity just can't be taught.

The Lord replies, 'A minute.'

Smith asks, 'And what does a million dollars mean to you?'

Playing Tomorrow Night At LB's Pub

April 10

Paul Finn (Guitar)

Joe Piccolo (Sax and vocals)

Paul
- gigged for years with many top notch blues acts and artists. Paul also hosted the famous Saturday afternoon blues jam at the King Eddie in Calgary for years and has toured across our great country on numerous occasions. He is a mainstay and very respected bass guitarist on the blues scene and a total fireball on the guitar. Paul's passion for the blues speaks for itself through his music when he is on stage.

Joe - his musical influences come from growing up in Windsor and he has played with the royalty of the blues in the Detroit scene. Whether you want  to jump the blues or rock the night away, Piccolo's lively vocals and sax will rock the house. Joe’s musical background is rooted in the history of the Motor City Blues and R&B tradition. Fronting and playing tenor saxophone along side such Detroit legends as Sir Mack Rice (original Mustang Sally), international blues legend Lazy Lester, Chicago Pete, Alberta Adams (W.C.Handy award nominee), R.J. Spangler (W.C. Handy nominee), and Mr. Joe Weaver (Funk Brothers, Standing in the Shadow of Motown), Piccolo has honed his craft under the finest of Detroit Blues and R&B royalty. This will be a second time appearance with Paul Finn back to our fan base by special request.

Grandpa, What Is Sex?

Grandpa, What Is Sex?
An 8-year-old girl went to her grandfather, who was working in the yard and asked him, "Grandpa, what is sex?"

The grandfather was surprised that she would ask such a question, but decided that if she's old enough to know to ask the question, then she's old enough to get a straight answer.

Steeling himself to leave nothing out, he proceeded to tell her all about human reproduction and the joys and responsibilities of intercourse.

When he finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her mouth hanging open, eyes wide in amazement.

Seeing the look on her face, the grandfather asked her, "Why did you ask this question, honey?"

The little girl replied, "Grandma says that dinner will be ready in just a couple of secs."

* When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the corn's natural sweetness.

* Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half, and rub it on your Forehead. The throbbing will go away. (I prefer to soak the lime in Gin and rub it on my tongue first) Amen!

* Don't throw out all that leftover wine: Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces. Left over wine? What's that? Happy
