Tim's Tip of the Day

I regret to inform you that there is no solution to the age old problem of being "unable to see the forest for the trees". The need to see the whole yet be able to concentrate on the details is something we share with all life forms but for us the problem is exaggerated because we tend to add more demensions to most problems so that their complexity is increased while over simplification is just as scary. This is the reason why people need to work together when problems involve "whole" or "details" issues.

Kevin's find of the day

X10 files for Chapter 11 (PDF) This MSNBC story by Paul Festa explains that after losing a law suite regarding Internet advertising X10 has had to file for bankruptcy protection.

Ensign Notes

Thanks to all who let their names stand for local elections everywhere, without your willingness to participate we would all be poorer.


The Saskatchewan Party In Carrot River Valley
Tuesday
October 21, 2003
by: Allan Kerpan
Tisdale: Here you get to hear and see the candidate for the Saskatchewan Party, Allan Kerpan gives you his intentions and what he aims to do as member of what he expects as a Saskatchewan Party government after the provincial election. This page has a 1.8MB QuickTime video clip of Mr. Kerpan.

A decade of taxpayer abuse from politicians and bureaucrats alike
Tuesday
October 21, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
Ottawa: What is most objectionable about the present government has been its bold dishonesty about the reasons it collected taxes and what it did with the money. This story lists the violatons of public trust and suggests that Paul Martin is likely to follow this same trend for indeed it was he that carried out most of the deception in the past.

Wasn't this province down that very road?
Tuesday
October 21, 2003
by:: Joyce Neufeld
Waldeck: Never ask a weatherman about the predictions he made yesterday about today's weather. Politicians have counted on the public thinking in terms of weather rather than consequences of bad government and Joyce Neufeld provides us with a quick recall of the last time election promises like the ones we are hearing this year were made and we are still paying for the tax cuts and corporate give-aways of a decade ago.

The Greenwater Report
Tuesday
October 21, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park: The flowers still bloom as fall moves along. The neighbour saw up some lumber and Gerald gives us his wisedom on cartoons, rural industry and China.

Another democratic step forward in Bolivia: Gringo Gony Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada has gone
Tuesday
October 21, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: Once more the oppression of colonialism and exploitation by the developed world has been sorted out as Bolivia changes presidents and the pro-American former president flees to Miami. This story is accompanied by borrowed images from various news sources taken yesterday and some outstanding references that document the story.

Total about face
Tuesday
October 21, 2003
by: Rebecca Gingrich
Princeton, Ontario: Both leaders won their jobs but promising not to merge with anyone else and both have reversed their position. Now they want to go into an election without hammering out policy, they think they should be trusted.

Pulling the Plug
Monday
October, 20, 2003
by: R. W. Shire
Regina: This set of outstanding images was created this morning and shows Wascana Lake in Regina as it was being drained to get ready for the deepening of the man-made lake this coming winter.

Flossing Guinness record attempt
Monday
October 20, 2003
by: Matthew Shire
Regina: People are an odd lot and when it comes to setting world records it seems you just can't hold them back. Today one of Regina's high school's had a shot at breaking a world record and we have the pictures that tell the story.

Flu shooting
Monday
October 20, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: The public health programme to reduce the risk of serious and possibly chronic illness from each year's infections that make their way from community to community each fall and spring when Canadians spend much of their time indoors.

Election platforms lacking key components
Monday
October 20, 2003
by: David MacLean
Regina: On first reading it sounds like Mr. Maclean is coming out pretty strongly in favour of the Saskatchewan's tax cutting plans for the province but his real message is that all three parties are not paying attention for the need for fiscal responsibility and debt retirement.

The division of the Free Market, Geo-Politics and Religious Dogmatism
Monday
October 20, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: The United States Deputy minister of Defense is an active General in the United States Special Forces yet claims that God put the US president in power and that he is confident because his God is bigger than the enemy's God. This is not a joke.

PC/CA Merger - History In The Making, Or Just History About To Repeat Itself?
Monday
October 20, 2003
by: Ron Thornton
Edmonton: The struggle to rationalise the conservative and reform elements of the Canadian political landscape is not knew and though it could be a historical event there is more coersion in this merger than seems appropriate.

The Mall
Sunday
October 19, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Regina: A culture, a sign of the times and perhaps a marketplace, this pictorial story examines the Cornwall Mall in Regina as it appeared Saturday afternoon.
