American Trade Deficit and Jobs Losses: Econometric correlation to the undervalued Chinese currency 'yuan/renminbi'
Wednesday
October 8, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin / The Great Wall near Bejing: Economists and political commentary on television love to use number to support their arguments and points of view. Ultimately, this practice is truly misleading and ignores so many contribution factors which, had they been considered, would have lead to quite different conclusions. The United States is in financial trouble and blames China for its woes when it is the cause of its own problems. This story explains the missing parts that CNN's Lou Dobbs should have been able to explain, but could not. As always, Mr. deSantis has provided you with some amazing references that deal with this issue and what it means for the world economy.

Tim's Tip of the Day

Take charge of this provincial election. Do what you can to ignore what the parties want you to know and concentrate on the issues that concern you and what you want to know. When you know what's important to you drop by the candidate's offices and place your questions. It is your responsiblity to be informed and demand the information that will allow you to make an informed decision.

Kevin's find of the day

Shanghai 'singing into the ground' This story in Australia's News Interactive explains that the huge Chinese city with its high rise and skyscraper structures is descending at about an eighth of a inch a year.

Ensign Notes

Election on November 5, looks like our predictions are off track.


This Is Our World, So Let Us Be Glad In It
Wednesday
October 8, 2003
by: Ron Thornton
Edmonton: With only a little sarcasim Ron Thornton points out that with so many things that we can do little about we might as well try to make the best of it.

Trees for a Golden Age
Tuesday
October 7, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: Today some spruce trees got their start in the field by the Golden Age Centre. With spruce trees living several hundred years this was an historic event.

China's economic experience: social tension, controlled privatization and sustained economic growth
Tuesday
October 7, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: We are so often told that there is only one way to success and that's the American way. This story and the referenced material it relies upon suggests that quite the contrary is true. There are many ways for a country huge or tiny to find success in its own way unique to its culture and traditions.

Sasko Park Lodge: no food
Tuesday
October 7, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: The kitchen staff at Sasko Park Lodge are out of work and the people who live in the facility now eat hospital food.

We aim to please
Tuesday
October 7, 2003
by: Stan Will
Tisdale: Stan Will is manager of Chicken Delight and after checking out "In search of Breakfast" posted last Friday he want to set the record straight. The pictures with this story were taken this morning and include some of Hannigans loyal refugees.

Saskatchewan Party should put tax cuts back on the table
Tuesday
October 7, 2003
by: David MacLean
Regina: The Saskatchewan Party has backed off from its position of seeking tax cuts in Saskatchewan. David MacLean of the Canadian Taxpayers Federations considers this a mistake and wants taxes reduced for business and individuals.

The Greenwater Report
Monday
October 6, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park: Lots of people out at the park this past weekend and the Crawfords are back from a trip into Southern, dry Alberta where the harvest as poor as it is, is yet to be completed. Fabulous pictures with this report.

Saskatchewan Autumn
Monday
October 6, 2003
by: Timothy and Judy. Shire
Tisdale: Here is a photo essay showing some scenes from Tisdale to Regina on Saturday.

Isabel
Monday
October 6, 2003
Somewhere in the Atlantic: Every so often a picture gets sent from friend to friend so that after a short while there is no way of knowing were it came from. Ken Styan got this image and passed it along and even though we have no way of crediting the photographer it seems appropriate that you have a chance to see this remarkable scene.

Our Tree
Sunday
October 5, 2003
by: Timothy W, Shire
Tisdale: This huge poplar (Aspen) tree by our back door is an enormous show off and rarely a day goes by that it does not some how impose itself on the affairs of or lives. Now it has turned to gold and by Thanksgiving will be nude.

Swift Current Civic Election and the Casino
Sunday
October 5, 2003
by: Edwin Wallace
Swift Current: The spread of First Nation run casinos in Saskatchewan has been the promised magic pill to solve economic woes as one city or community after another things they are going to become the next great Las Vegas. This "iffy" question is before the folks in Swift Current and it is interesting to hear what Edwin Wallace has to say about it as he feels the business community has lined as cheerleaders to back a questionable and definitely not proven idea.

The leaving leaves of 2003
Friday
October 3, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: This page presents a set of fall images from within the town of Tisdale as some tree turn colour while others drop everything on the ground.

Paving the roads with gas tax: Paul Martinís conversion on the road to 24 Sussex Drive
Friday
October 3, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
Ottawa: Paul Martin as Canada's finance minister found many many ways to grab tax dollars from Canadians under various excuses then plowed that money into general revenue instead of using it for what it was originally collected.

In search of breakfast
Friday
October 3, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: With Hannigans closed a lot of Tisdale people have had their world seriously upset so it is the editor's quest to find a place to fill the bill for a weekly breakfast, or a daily one for that matter. This story reviews Chicken Delight's breakfast and the "farmer's" breakfast at A&W.

The Free Market of Journalism: Leonard Asper
Friday
October 3, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: The Global television network and most of Canada's newspaper are controlled by the Asper family from Winnipeg. Yesterday, Leonard wrote an editorial in which he spells out what he thinks about things and it is implied that his employees if they wish to remain employees had better agree. Mario deSantis has provided you with a link to this interesting document and gives us he impression of the implications.

October 3, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire

Thursday
October 2, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: Bruce Schapansky's auction business seems to have an exponential growth of its own as the site East of town has been developed, redeveloped and now in the process of growing even larger.

The Race to the Bottom of the Free Market
Thursday
October 2, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: It seems that to increase profits, the goal of business, is resulting in a never ending search for lower and lower wages that increases the widening gap between extreme wealth and extreme poverty, world wide. To add to this exaggerated devolution the United States has reintroduced warfare as a business strategy.
