Tim's Tip of the Day

The hardest part of engaging in a discussion with someone is listening. Active participatory listening is a high level skill and all of us need to recognise how important it is to refine what is said and grasp the underlying and valuable message that is both consciously and unconsciously being transmitted.

Ensign Notes

Time to get the reference library going as readers and research turns up material that must be shared.

Red River College
Tuesday, April 29, 2003
Using a new campus with a blend of new buildings and completely rebuilt ones to produce a setting that will facilitate the development of Canada's most innovative graphics school.

SARS Demands More Than Comedy Teams And Spin Doctors
Tuesday, April 29, 2003
by: Ron Thornton
In 1918 a horrible influence swept across the whole of the world it was devastating. Our world is vulnerable and the jokers should be telling jokes and serious folks should be around to get ready to tighten up the things that might protect us all.

Hey Canada, meet Paul “much more” Martin: He wants to do much more, it will surely cost much more, and taxpayers deserve much more detail
Tuesday, April 29, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
So what has Paul Martin told Canada about his policies and what he stands for? It seems he believes in generalities and Walter Robinson has some suggestions.

A year of intersections
Monday, April 28, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
One after another water lines under intersections have failed this year from in front of the elementary school, beside the Anglican Church and four on this one street alone.

American Crony Capitalism: The snowballing of privatization, less taxes and more wars
Monday, April 28, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
American economic operations are in the Texas Enron pattern. Spend money they don't have, cover it with wars and cut taxes to fatten up the wealthy. The whole thing is just delayed failure in progress.

The Greenwater report
Monday, April 28, 2003
By: Gerald Crawford
Gerald's been off to Sturgis for the opening of Barb's Emporium and gives us the a review of the new eating establishment. Remember now this is by a guy who is suppose to be on a diet.

Monday, April 28, 2003
by: Kevin McIntyre
Kevin got this to Ensign on Friday but that was a travel day and there was no time to get it posted. But with both Joe Hueglin and Ron Thornton giving us their views on SARS we need to consider how Kevin feels about the issue.

S.A.R.S in perspective
Monday, April 28, 2003
by: Joe Hueglin
We have heard these terms "suspect," "Probable," and "confirmed" but do we or anyone have any idea what these mean. Joe Hueglin has looked into the problem and provides us with the whole simple story including some excellent references that clear the matter up.

Sunday, April 27, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
With less than 50cc. of engine displacement and limited in speed this vehicle is classed as a bicycle and as such does not require a special drivers license. Surprising that the moped is not more popular in North America but in Europe they are and have been extremely popular for decades.

Another world is possible: Bush&Co Games versus Thinking
Sunday, April 27, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
In this story Mario deSantis contrasts the basic mode of operation in use by the United States and a surprisingly attractive alternative.

To begin once again: Crop 2003
Saturday, April 26, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
A wild snow storm smashed into Calgary this morning as winds wick away the winters moisture as planting begins across the Great Central Plains.

The IMF and World Bank:Poverty Reduction and Growth? Or the Same Old Formula?
Saturday, April 26, 2003
by: Mark Weisbrot
The United States and its enforced economic policies in South and Central America have reduced growth from 75% to 7% and the standard of living is actual close to declining everywhere American policies prevail. This means the United States and its "regime change" war in Iraq are enormously unpopular.

St. Vital Mall in Winnipeg
Friday, April 25, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
No less than a handful of anchors this spoke shaped mall might be better described as marketing sprall.

Paul Martin — the almost chosen one — will finally speak, but will he say anything?
Friday, April 25, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
Having been flat out for leader of the Liberal party for the past thirteen years Paul Martin has not been telling us what he stands for or what his position is on the major issues.

We are Parked on guard for thee
Thursday, April 24, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Most Canadians never see any evidence of their Canadian Armed Forces. The trainers that fly over Moose Jaw are privately owned and the one or two 4x4s and little trucks in Regina are hardly enough to be noticed. Here is what Canada's military equipment looks like.

Crocus in the Qu' Appelle Valley
Thursday, April 24, 2003
by: Ken Jones
The ultimate sign of spring in Southern Saskatchewan is the apprearance of the crocus. Ken Jones spotted some Tuesday and is sharing them with us all.

Commonwealth Air Training memorial
Wednesday, April 23, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Though it is pleasant to see examples of Canada's history in military aircraft it is also sad knowing that they were meant to fly not stand on pilons buried in the ground. This page includes a 600K QuickTime Virtual Reality and access to thirty pictures of the aircraft display.

On Paul Krugman and Bush's lie that $726 billion will create 1.4 million jobs
Wednesday, April 23, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
No with standing the myth that tax cuts produce increased economic activity there is an amazing math problem that the Bush administration is touting as a solution.
