Saturday Sessions February 25th Presents

Darren Gusnowsky - This weeks Mark Ammar's Saturday Sessions Jam presents guest Darren Gusnowsky  - a very respected guitarist, Darren is spoken of as one of the busiest, hardest working guitarists on the country scene. Another musician who is in it “for the long run”, a, guitarist, singer, and tunesmith, he loves the country-honk of the Exile On Mainstreet era Rolling Stones, and the seamless harmonies of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young in their prime.

There’s nothing like setting the bar high. So just to add another key element into Darren’s musical personality, he has no problem remembering that it was his mother turning him on to Ricky Skaggs, which convinced him he should pay more attention to hardcore country sounds. In quoting Darren, “Here I am all these years later, winning an award with Stacie and Rob at the CCMA’s, hearing our songs on the radio, and standing side stage at a show we’ve opened for the Kentucky Headhunters and Marty Stuart,” says Gusnowsky, with an “it doesn’t get much better than this”.

A brilliant guitarist frontman who started playing full time on the road in 1993, and went to GMCC in 1997 for two years. He has freelanced for artists, Gord Bamford, Dwayne Steele and others before focusing on Hey Romeo. Darren started writing for a new project with Rob Shapiro and has been doing some freelance work again, playing with recording artist Dan Davidson. Darren also appears plays locally with acts $4 Bill, The Mojave Iguanas, and Stomp N Holler.

PHOTO ENFORCEMENT CONTINUES
IN DORMANT CITY PLAYGROUNDS


Winter has arrived. Frigid temperatures are here, and the children are nowhere to be seen on the abandoned snow-covered soccer field along Forest Drive. In St. Albert this only means one thing. Since no one is around there is a lot more room to park the photo enforcement trucks to enforce this abandoned playground zone with inadequate signs.

The two Ford trucks are out in full force this winter enforcing this dormant playground:
Photo Radar GreyFord1500X1100

  • Dark grey Ford XTR Lic # BNB 5662
Photo Radar White Ford1500
  • White Ford XTR Lic # BNB 5661

Their black GMC SUV and white Jeep are keeping busy in other locations in St. Albert.

Municipal Enforcement shamelessly continues to enforce these abandoned playground zones even though there is no shortage of legitimate locations in which to conduct photo enforcement. Contrary to certain opinion, Photo Enforcement is still an effective tool to curb speeding if used appropriately and fairly. Enforcing playgrounds in the winter is a clear example of inappropriate and unfair.

Jardine Security has been contracted to respond to sightings of Photo Radar vehicles in vacant playground zones this winter. Call Jardine for immediate response to monitor photo enforcement activity. Call
while the photo enforcement vehicles are still there.

Deep In Brazil’s Amazon, Exploring The Ruins Of Ford’s Fantasyland

Deep In Brazil’s Amazon
FORDLÂNDIA, Brazil — The Amazon jungle already swallowed the Winding Brook Golf Course. Floods ravaged the cemetery, leaving behind a stockpile of concrete crosses. The 100-bed hospital designed by the acclaimed Detroit architect Albert Kahn? Plunderers destroyed it.

Given the scale of decay and decrepitude in this town — founded in 1928 by the industrialist Henry Ford in the far reaches of the Amazon River Basin — I didn’t expect to come across the stately, largely well-preserved homes on Palm Avenue. But there they were, thanks to the squatters.

“This street was a looters’ paradise, with thieves taking furniture, doorknobs, anything the Americans left behind,” said Expedito Duarte de Brito, 71, a retired milkman who dwells in one of the homes built for Ford managers in what was planned to be a utopian plantation town. “I thought, ‘Either I occupy this piece of history or it joins the other ruins of Fordlândia.’”

Eldorado Presentation To Council

Council Became Our Adversaries

Eldorado Presentation To Council
Editor’s Note: The following is the text of a presentation made to St. Albert city council on February 21, 2017.

Mayor and Council:

I among others am here today to witness the partial ‘righting’ of a previous wrong. It will soon be four years since the residents of Erin Ridge first faced the threat of losing at the very least a significant portion of Eldorado Park. Although it was more an open field than picture book it was nonetheless prized by many as a place for informal gatherings, flying a kite or just playing ball and running around with the kids. Throughout the warmer months it regularly accommodated organized soccer games involving teams from across St. Albert and beyond.

Then came the day when it was inadvertently discovered that the park had been selected as the site of a regional secondary school which needless to say, aroused considerable concern that was about to become outright consternation. It wasn’t long before residents were banding together to discuss the issue and what might be done about it. This evolved into a literally ‘grassroots movement’ involving increasingly large gatherings held in the park itself. The attendance of several sitting city councilors at these meetings created what would later be realized as a naïve hope that perhaps we actually stood a chance of saving the park. Alas, while the interest and support expressed by a couple of the local politicians would prove to be sincere it was soon realized that others among them had more ulterior motives.

In defiance of the old saying; “You can’t fight City Hall!” the Erin Ridge Residents’ Action Committee (ERRAC) was created consisting of a core group of residents who would spearhead the efforts to have the decision overturned. Little did we know what our mission would entail or what we would endure in terms of pushback from City Council and Administration not only in the way of obstruction but from our perspective, outright deceit. Of course the usual accusations of nimbyism and to an even more ridiculous extent, prejudice and discrimination were attributed to us in a vein attempt to discredit and shame us into submission.

For one last time, let me make it perfectly clear that our quarrel was explicitly with the bureaucracy of City Hall in its stubborn adherence to an inherently undemocratic process involving the School Site Allocation Committee (SSAC) and the since removed City Manager. In effect, our very own elected representatives became our adversaries through deliberately obtrusive actions and inactions. From the very start, we maintained the position that Eldorado Park should remain intact as that particular area of Erin Ridge was already suffering the consequences of over-development that continue to this very day. In the main part, these consist of intolerable traffic congestion creating safety and noise issues that negatively impact the quality of life and economic welfare (i.e. property values and sale-ability) of the neighbouring residents that as predicted by us, have worsened. Had we been listened to and the project moved to a different site we may very well have been happy to get back to leading our ordinary lives but such was not to be.

Instead, the Eldorado incident opened our eyes to the much more pervasive and worrisome problems that exist within the politics and operations at City Hall. It is toward these that a number of us along with numerous others have since shifted our attention. With true poetic justice, the intransigence we experienced has over time created a considerable degree of circumspection from various sources. Sadly to say however, a similar modus operandi on the part of the City continues to this day with just one example being the current issue in Braeside surrounding a land swap (again involving parkland) and a proposed high-density condo project.

With the foregoing being said and the school built and operating, it is sensible that we move on and make the best of the situation. During a recent Open House Event, I personally toured Ecole Alexandre Tache and as a retired educator was very impressed not only with the physical plant but the inviting atmosphere created by the hosting students and staff. To that extent, I genuinely wish them well moving forward.

Perhaps some degree of reconciliation is possible through your approval of the redistricting although it will not entirely erase what was done nor give us back anything close to what we had. Unless it can be guaranteed that reverting back to the ‘P’ designation also stands for “in perpetuity” there is the realization that another simple decision by the present or future council could yet deprive us of what has to date been salvaged from the original Eldorado Park.

How Previous Owners Can Potentially Still Access Their Cars Long After They've Sold Them

How Previous Owners
As technology further integrates into the car industry, doing things from the car continues to get easier. You can have Volvo drop off packages, talk to Amazon’s Alexa and all sorts of things. But technology can also allow people to access cars long after they’ve sold them, which is enough to leave any buyer uncomfortable.

According to CNN, IBM researcher Charles Henderson says he sold a car several years ago and can still control it from his phone. Henderson can also see exactly where the car is, if he decides to check. Being a researcher, Henderson tested the situation on cars from four major manufacturers and found the same to be true.

The CNN story did not name Henderson’s former car nor the manufacturers he tested, but it’s still creepy to think about the various breaches in privacy we open ourselves up to by simply purchasing such connected devices.

Memories Of High School

Memories Of High School
My name is Wendy and I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with a new dentist. i noticed his dental diploma, which bore his full name.

Suddenly, I remembered a tall, handsome, dark haired boy with the same name had been in my secondary school class some 40 odd years ago. Could he be the same guy that I had a secret crush on, way back then?

Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought.

This balding, grey haired man with the deeply lined face was far too old to have been my classmate. After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended Morgan Park high school.

'Yes, yes I did. I'm a Morganner!’ he beamed with pride.

'When did you leave to go to college?' I asked.

He answered, ‘in 1965, why do you ask?’

'You were in my class!' I exclaimed.

He looked at me closely.

Then the ugly, old, bald, wrinkled, fat arsed, grey haired, decrepit, bastard asked … 'What subject did you teach?

Collapse Of Aztec Society Linked To Catastrophic Salmonella Outbreak

Collapse Of Aztec
The Spanish invasion of Mexico, depicted in a nineteenth-century illustration, was followed by a series of epidemics of unknown cause.

One of the worst epidemics in human history, a sixteenth-century pestilence that devastated Mexico’s native population, may have been caused by a deadly form of salmonella from Europe, a pair of studies suggest.

In one study, researchers say they have recovered DNA of the stomach bacterium from burials in Mexico linked to a 1540s epidemic that killed up to 80% of the country's native inhabitants.

An Irish Divorce

An Irish Divorce
The mother-in-law arrives home from shopping to find her son-in-law, Paddy, in a steaming rage and hurriedly packing his suitcase. "What happened Paddy?" she asks anxiously.

"What happened? I'll tell you what happened! I sent an e-mail to my wife telling her I was coming home today from my fishing trip. I get home and guess what I found? Your daughter, my wife, Jean, naked with Joe Murphy in our marital bed! This is unforgivable! The end of our marriage. I'm done. I'm leaving forever!"

"Ah now, calm down, calm down Paddy!" says his mother-in-law. "There is something very odd going on here. Jean would never do such a thing! There must be a simple explanation. I'll go speak to her immediately and find out what happened.

Moments later, the mother-in-law comes back with a big smile. "Paddy, there I told you there must be a simple explanation. She never got your e-mail.”

Winter has arrived. Frigid temperatures are here, and the children are nowhere to be seen on the abandoned snow-covered soccer field along Forest Drive. In St. Albert this only means one thing. Since no one is around there is a lot more room to park the photo enforcement trucks to enforce this abandoned playground zone with inadequate signs.

The two Ford trucks are out in full force this winter enforcing this dormant playground:
Photo Radar GreyFord1500X1100

  • Dark grey Ford XTR Lic # BNB 5662
Photo Radar White Ford1500
  • White Ford XTR Lic # BNB 5661

Their black GMC SUV and white Jeep are keeping busy in other locations in St. Albert.

Municipal Enforcement shamelessly continues to enforce these abandoned playground zones even though there is no shortage of legitimate locations in which to conduct photo enforcement. Contrary to certain opinion, Photo Enforcement is still an effective tool to curb speeding if used appropriately and fairly. Enforcing playgrounds in the winter is a clear example of inappropriate and unfair.

Jardine Security has been contracted to respond to sightings of Photo Radar vehicles in vacant playground zones this winter. Call Jardine for immediate response to monitor photo enforcement activity. Call
while the photo enforcement vehicles are still there.

The Dazzling Firefall Of Yosemite Has Returned

The Dazzling Firefall
The rare and stunningly beautiful phenomenon only occurs during a two-week window in February.

While winter in Yosemite National Park offers a spectacular opportunity to witness the national park's unparalleled beauty, there's one phenomenon in particular worth planning a trip around.

During the last two weeks of February, the angle of the setting sun transforms the 2,130-foot Horsetail Falls into what many have nicknamed "The Yosemite Firefall." The effect is so convincing that it almost appears as if lava is pouring out of the granite cliffside. For photographers, this spectacle is not to be missed, with many snatching up the best spots to catch the phenomenon as early as 5 a.m. each morning.

More on the mother nature network.

Saturday Sessions February 25th Presents

Darren Gusnowsky - This weeks Mark Ammar's Saturday Sessions Jam presents guest Darren Gusnowsky  - a very respected guitarist, Darren is spoken of as one of the busiest, hardest working guitarists on the country scene. Another musician who is in it “for the long run”, a, guitarist, singer, and tunesmith, he loves the country-honk of the Exile On Mainstreet era Rolling Stones, and the seamless harmonies of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young in their prime.

There’s nothing like setting the bar high. So just to add another key element into Darren’s musical personality, he has no problem remembering that it was his mother turning him on to Ricky Skaggs, which convinced him he should pay more attention to hardcore country sounds. In quoting Darren, “Here I am all these years later, winning an award with Stacie and Rob at the CCMA’s, hearing our songs on the radio, and standing side stage at a show we’ve opened for the Kentucky Headhunters and Marty Stuart,” says Gusnowsky, with an “it doesn’t get much better than this”.

A brilliant guitarist frontman who started playing full time on the road in 1993, and went to GMCC in 1997 for two years. He has freelanced for artists, Gord Bamford, Dwayne Steele and others before focusing on Hey Romeo. Darren started writing for a new project with Rob Shapiro and has been doing some freelance work again, playing with recording artist Dan Davidson. Darren also appears plays locally with acts $4 Bill, The Mojave Iguanas, and Stomp N Holler.

As Japan Ages, Menus Adapt to Finding the Gourmet in Purées

As Japan Ages
YOKOHAMA, Japan — The 94-year-old man had come for lunch at a Chinese restaurant, and he was determined to make the most of his squid and leek stir-fry.

Eigo Shinoda, a former shipbuilding executive and fighter pilot in World War II, spends his days in a wheelchair and has trouble eating solid food. But that was no impediment as he dug into his meal with a plastic turquoise spoon recently.

That’s because the staff at the restaurant, Kaze no Oto, had puréed the stir-fry in a food processor and served it to his group, which was from a nearby nursing home. While it didn’t look that appetizing, it did the trick for Mr. Shinoda. He finished by licking his plate clean.

The Taxi Driver

The Taxi Driver
A woman and her 12-year-old son were riding in a taxi in Detroit. It was raining and all the prostitutes were standing under awnings. "Mom," said the boy, "what are all those women doing?"

"They're waiting for their husbands to get off work," she replied.

The taxi driver turns around and says, "Geez lady, why don't you tell him the truth? They're hookers, boy! They have sex with men for money."

The little boy's eyes get wide and he says, "Is that true Mom?"

His mother, glaring hard at the driver, answers "Yes."

After a few minutes the kid asks, "Mom, if those women have babies, what happens to them?"

She replies, "Well, most of them become taxi drivers."

Swiss Town Denies Passport To Dutch Vegan Because She Is ‘Too Annoying’

Swiss Town Denies
A Dutch vegan who applied for a Swiss passport has had her application rejected because the locals found her too annoying.

Nancy Holten, 42, moved to Switzerland from the Netherlands when she was eight years old and now has children who are Swiss nationals.

However, when she tried to get a Swiss passport for herself, residents of Gipf-Oberfrick in the canton of Aargau rejected her application.

A Little Deaf

A Little Deaf
Twin sisters just turned one hundred years old in St. Luke's Nursing Home and the editor of the local rag, "The Post," told a photographer to get over there and take the pictures of these 100 year old twin ladies.

One of the twins was hard of hearing and the other could hear quite well.

The photographer asked them to sit on the sofa and the deaf one said to her twin, "What did he say?” He said, "WE GOTTA SIT OVER THERE ON THE SOFA!" said the other.

”Now get a little closer together," said the cameraman.

Again, "What did he say?” ”HE SAYS SQUEEZE TOGETHER A LITTLE." So they wiggled up close to each other.

"Just hold on for a bit longer, I've got to focus a little," said the photographer.

Yet again, "What did he say?” "HE SAYS HE'S GONNA FOCUS!"

With a big grin the deaf twin shouted out, "Oh my God, both of us?"

Pub Regular Is 93-Year-Old Who Has Been Drinking In The Same Boozer Since He Was 12

Pub Regular Is 93
AN OLD sailor called Nelson is claiming the title of Britain’s longest-serving pub regular after going to the same local for more than EIGHTY years.

Nelson Foyle has been drinking in the same pub, the Dog & Gun, since he was 12

In the decades since he has gone in several times a week – apart from a break with the Royal Navy during the war – to enjoy a few pints of his favourite bitter.

In that time Nelson reckons he has sunk around 40,000 pints.
