News of the day is presented in several excellent articles. This is an overall summary that I hope presents the near present & near future Canada.
Canada, the country on planet Earth, is both ashine with the good (that is maintaining our prosperity), with the bad (failure to meet our commitments particularly on many important climate matters) & near future as we move into the second decade (arbitrary planet Earth measure) of the 21st century.
Near the end of the 20th century Bob Dylan was awarded a Nobel prize for his song “Times they are a’changin”. How right he was in his reference to planet Earth & I don’t think he appreciated that they are part of a very fast change. So fast are the advances & so fast is the effect on producers, consumers and financiers that I am unable to keep abreast of all the changes but I intend to mention the well known ones.
This then is a look at what Canada is doing to advance the good & eliminate the bad during century 21 & the near past. I keep reading that world conditions are ripe for a recession that would surely hurt our GDP which was sitting at a goodly 3% (it should be 2.2% in 2018).
Categories here are descriptions of items that are common to most areas of Canada. Tags here are used to describe physical conditions that pertain to limited but politically multiple areas, mostly of Canada though where they significantly affect Canada, of other places on planet Earth.
An exception is OCanada which links to the government websites of each provincial/territorial area.
This site is built around the entity Canada, a country on planet earth. No doubt a Space Colony will come & probably on a suitable planet of a distant star. Unlikely to be a colony of Canada & most likely to be the result of several earth nations combining resources.
Whatever the founders the steps to be taken are similar. I choose not to guess about the founders but instead write about the many similar steps required omitting those that involve picking between a single or multiple founders.
Much of this blog is what Canada is as a country now on planet Earth. The times they are a’changin as well so there is a series tagged “All Change” that details all the wonderful & often dangerous things that our clever scientific researchers have done in Canada & elsewhere on planet Earth. (All Change? A term shouted by railway porters on a platform where a feeder line terminated – O’Well, was asked.)
That we on planet Earth will create a colony on a planet of a distant star is certain. It will be a complicated matter that takes time in both the preparation & execution. When finished & unless we have an unforeseen discovery there will be no timely communication between the old & new. Exciting!
I often refer to how clever we are. I truly believe that in some areas but the fact is that we don’t even know about the mysterious thing we call energy. Yes we do know many things about measuring energy we have but we have no idea of amount available & so we cannot be Atheists. This interesting area I Tag as “Cosmic Matter”.
This morning the PSW who helped me get out of bed & I had a friendly argument.
I told her that my posterior was sore through sitting all day in my wheelchair & she said “Do you mean your rear end”. No said I it was my car that had a rear end, I have a posterior. There was no suitable ointment.
I went to the duty nurse & said “Bill’s posterior is sore through sitting all & everyday in his wheelchair”
My problem posterior will be scrutinized later in the day.
Frequently heard but really translates as “Don’t know how to be bothered” & that is something Recreation & Administration staff are changing.
For example, when residents here say “We Care” it usually is about caring for the homeless & needy of our area. Us fuddy duddy residents & their families attach our home as one of the regular donors to the local Cope & give serious help not just for ourselves.
In this section of our blog such things are reported about happenings that are constructive, funny, helpful to all.
