14:33 [BLOG] Some Saturday links »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)

  • blogTO describes Toronto's Great Fire of 1904.

  • Centauri Dreams and D-Brief react to the discovery of Kepler-186f, The Dragon's Gaze linking to a paper that models potential climates on the world.

  • The Dragon's Gaze notes, as does io9, that an Earth-like planet doesn't need a stabilizing moon to be habitable. If anything, a shifting axis may help a planet avoid ice ages.

  • Eastern Approaches notes that the Czech Republic isn't getting a Russian corporation to renovate its nuclear power plants.

  • Geocurrents notes the ongoing maritime border dispute between Romania and Ukraine.

  • Language Log notes an example of Chinese characters being used as annotations for Vietnamese script.

  • The Map Room's Jonathan Crowe links to a copy of the only fantasy literature setting map needed. (The cliches are cringe-worthy.)

  • Marginal Revolution takes note of the ongoing real estate boom in Vancouver.

  • The Power and the Money's Noel Maurer notes that Ukraine needs to keep Odessa, not only because of the city's importance as a coastal port but because of its oil refinery.

  • The Russian Demographics Blog links to a paper analyzing the different kinds of processes of depopulation in European Russia.

  • Towleroad notes that a photo exhibit showing same-sex couples kissing in Catholic churches, closed down in Rome, is now up in New York City.

  • The Volokh Conspiracy notes that it's quite rare to actually see police officers suffer serious penalties for lying.

  • Window on Eurasia points readers to the writings of Andrey Piontkovsky, who argues that Putin's push for territorial annexations is more destabilizing (because more uncertain) than the Cold War.
  • Yorkshire Ranter Alex Harrowell observes an uncanny congruence between maps of England showing ancient patterns of Viking settlement and contemporary patterns of areas with benefit cuts.

11:03 The War on Savers (222 Words) »PEIinfo.ca | New Topics
Governments around the world, in order to reduce the carrying costs of their irresponsible deficits and debts, and to encourage us to 'consume' more, have abandoned savers and investors. Central banks’ rock bottom interest rate policies means that you are literally paying the bank to store your money.

By investors, I mean the people who start businesses and hire people, the job creators, not stock market speculators.

Neil MacDonald, in his recent CBC series '“The 'monarchs of money' and the war on savers” 'explains:-

[i]“Probably the most painful of the consequences of quantitative easing has been borne by the elderly.

Most of that generation grew up believing that if you save and exercise prudence that you will earn at least a modest return on your hard-earned money to keep you comfortable in your old age, perhaps along with a pension.

But the money-printing orgy of the last five years looks to have shot that notion to smithereens.

Very deliberately, the central bankers have punished savers, pushing interest rates so low that any truly safe investment — and older people are always advised to play it safe — yields a negative return when inflation is factored in.”[/i]

09:03 Drug seizure in Souris results in two arrests »Eastern Graphic weekly newspaper

On April 17, two Souris men were arrested after a search of the car they were in resulted in the seizure of approximately 3/4 of a pound of marihuana.

Members of the Kings District Street Level Drug Unit conducted a stop on a small black car and officers suspected occupants of trafficking as the drugs were packaged for resale.

Subsequently, a 30 year-old from Church Avenue and 23 year-old from Main Street, are facing a number of charges related to the trafficking of drugs and will appear in court at a later date.

In a news release RCMP said drug activity often involves violence that puts innocent citizens of Prince Edward Island at risk.

The Kings District Street Level Drug Unit investigates complaints and targets people involved in the purchase and sale of drugs within the area.

18:30 Like Father, Like Son at Friday, April 18, 2014 at 6:30 »Tonight at City Cinema
Only 4 days left to see this film.

Rated: Parental Guidance
Runs: 120 minutes
Director: Kore-eda Hirokazu
Country: Japan
Released: 2013
Starring: Masharu Fukuyama, Machiko Ono, Yoko Maki
Language: In Japanese with English subtitles

“A married couple sit in silence, grappling with the terrible truth they have just learned: their bright-eyed 6-year-old only child, Keita, is not their biological son, but was switched at birth with another baby at the hospital. ‘Why didn’t I see it?’ the wife, Midori finally asks, in soft anguish. ‘I’m his mother.’ Those three words are at the root of Like Father, Like Son, a moving drama about parenthood from Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda. Midori and her husband, Ryota, a well-off couple who live in a sleek high-rise, soon come to meet the other couple involved: the easygoing Yukai and his wife, Yukari, who live in a working-class neighborhood with their three small children, including Midori and Ryota’s biological son, Ryusei. Differences are quickly apparent: Ryota, a workaholic perfectionist, is obsessed with how the mistake could have been made, Yukai focuses on the potential settlement money. Meanwhile, Midori and Yukari eye each other fearfully. ‘Is there a manual for this situation?,’ the latter dryly asks. No one here is a villain, but every character is nuanced. Ryota, a somewhat absent father who has high expectations for his son, comes to realize how much he treasures the child even in the absence of blood ties; Yukai, who initially seems to be taking it all rather lightly, is heartbreaking as he tersely asks Ryota, ‘Please fly kites with Ryusei.’ And Ono, the quiet soul of the movie, has some beautiful scenes: one wordless, as she sadly fits her hand into her child’s plaster handprint, and another on a train, as she wistfully asks Keita, ‘Shall the two of us run away together? Somewhere nobody knows?’ The film ends gently, without firm answers, but we sense that these children - and parents - have found their home.” - Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times
