  1. CoryxKenshin: The YouTube Star Who Disappeared.

    I had never heard of this young man. He has compassion written all over him. Good video. There's no doubt in my mind that he's taken time for himself.

  2. Stay safe people. Wear masks, gloves, and goggles/glasses. Many are in the streets without any safety clothing. Nonsense!

    It's now more important to reach in deep and keep ourselves uplifted in these hard times. 

  3. COVID-19  NEWS BITE

    Sophie Trudeau Update

    Trudeau says his wife Sophie is feeling much better after contracting the COVID-19 virus on a trip to the U.K. earlier this month.

    The Trudeaus, including the prime minister, have been in isolation since she was diagnosed two weeks ago.

    The required 14-day isolation period for them is now over, and Trudeau says he and his children are still symptom free.

    But he says they'll continue to follow public health protocols, though did not specify whether that means he'll emerge from self-isolation.

    ---------------------

    People in Canada are indeed being arrested and/or charge under violation of the Public Health Protection and Promotion Act. 

    One lady was arrested for not adhering to the self-isolation law after traveling from abroad.

     

  4. Excerpt from sciencedaily.com Musicians - Right or Left Brain? According to a popular view, creativity is a product of the brain's right hemisphere -- innovative people are considered "right-brain thinkers" while "left-brain thinkers" are thought to be analytical and logical. Photo Credit: © MIGUEL GARCIA SAAVED / Adobe Stock Neuroscientists who are skeptical of this idea have argued that there is not enough evidence to support this idea and an ability as complex as human creativity must draw on vast swaths of both hemispheres. A new brain-imaging study out of Drexel University's Creativity Research Lab sheds light on this controversy by studying the brain activity of jazz guitarists during improvisation. The study, which was recently published in the journal NeuroImage, showed that creativity is, in fact, driven primarily by the right hemisphere in musicians who are comparatively inexperienced at improvisation. However, musicians who are highly experienced at improvisation rely primarily on their left hemisphere. This suggests that creativity is a "right-brain ability" when a person deals with an unfamiliar situation but that creativity draws on well-learned, left-hemisphere routines when a person is experienced at the task. ________________________ Depends ... creativity or new learning is Right side while well seasoned and experienced are left side of the brain's hemisphere.

  6. Excerpt from odditycentral central.com March 27th, 2020 Meet Xherdan, Unofficially the World’s Scariest-Looking Cat We’ve featured our share of famous internet felines, from grumpy cats, to incredibly beautiful fur balls, but we never really posted about scary-looking felines. That ends today, with Xherdan, the scariest-looking sphinx you’ve ever seen. The phrase “a face only a mother could love” is usually used maliciously, but in the case of Xherdan, a bald, wrinkly and evil-looking cat, it couldn’t be more true, And his mother, 47-year-old Sandra Filippi, from the Swiss town of Rüti, does indeed love him very much and claims that despite his scary look, he is a sweet pet who loves to sleep and interact with his human owners. She claims that although most people are indeed a bit scared the first time they see Xherdan, they eventually grow to like him after seeing how playful and friendly he really is.
  7. Completed my hike. Toronto I am a little disappointed with a number of masks being discarded on the ground. Not an over abundance mind you, but still it's defeating the purpose.

    My walk today was in Etobicoke (ea-toe-be-co). It's Toronto's most western suburb. Visited the rock garden.

  8. Excerpt from www.sci-news.com Mercury’s Extreme Daytime Heat May Help It Make Its Polar Ice Mar 16, 2020 by News Staff / Source In 2011, NASA’s MESSENGER orbiter detectedsignals typical of glacial ice near the poles on Mercury. The ice was dingy and lurked in permanent shadows in numerous polar craters. According to new research led by Georgia Institute of Technology researchers, the extreme heat on Mercury, where daytime temperatures reach 400 degrees Celsius (750 degrees Fahrenheit), helps make some of that ice. Image credit: NASA / Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory / Carnegie Institution of Washington. This colorful view of Mercury was produced by using images from the color base map imaging campaign during MESSENGER’s primary mission. These colors are not what Mercury would look like to the human eye, but rather the colors enhance the chemical, mineralogical, and physical differences between the rocks that make up the planet’s surface. “As with Earth, asteroids delivered most of Mercury’s water, the scientific consensus holds. But the extreme daytime heat could be combining with the minus 200-degree Celsius cold in nooks of polar craters that never see sunlight to act as a gigantic ice-making chemistry lab,” said Georgia Tech’s Professor Thomas Orlando, senior author of the study. ---------------------------- Perfect definition for extreme. I think the old adage; 'when hell freezes over' applies here.
  9. Excerpt from Science News Fishermen Captures UFOs When it comes to prospective UFO sightings, there are a couple criteria that elevates a video from "probably a lens flare" to "huh, that's weird": the first is decent video quality, the second is a clear "UFO," and the third is a genuine question over what exactly we're seeing. This recent video from a fisherman on North Carolina's Outer Bank fulfills all three of those guidelines—check it out below. Watch the entire video because the configuration will change and zoom in. The name of the fisherman in the video isn't clear, though the video about was posted by someone with the username crlarkin. According to the video description: "Stationary orange lights in the sky. Seen east off of Cape Lookout on 11/13/18, roughly between 9-10PM Eastern." Apart from the fact that the orange lights seem to be staying in roughly the same place in the sky, the appearance and disappearance of two other orange lights above them raises more questions about what exactly we're seeing here—a boat? A lighthouse? Whatever the lights are, they're certainly more interesting than the "TR-3B" spotted in a lightning storm, or the "flying triangle" seen in a different lightning storm(noticing a pattern here?). Most UFO sightings like these look more like video artifacts than actual aircraft, so we give credit to our Outer Banks fisherman for taking a relatively steady, high-quality video so viewers can actually see what they're supposed to be looking at. Floating or hovering lights have been a part of UFO lore for decades, including the famous Lubbock Lights and the Phoenix Lights, though both of those cases involved numerous lights arranged in a wing or "carpenter's square"-like formation. While someone native to North Carolina might be able to point out something obvious, like the fact that there's a buoy near that stretch of beach, we're going to file this video under "unexplained" until then. -------------------------------------- My opinion would be a boat at a distant... What do you think?
  10. You don't need a metal detector for hunting criminals. Lol! Sorry I couldn't resist. I've been locked up too long at home.
  11. Oh curling... I'd played it once... just once. Sweeping ice for a rock is a little too crazy. Now sweeping rodents away sounds intriguing. Lol!
