Roach said the province is working with a number of partners, including the Souris Port Authority, on a deal with new tenants.

Blaine Sullivan of Ocean Choice said they are negotiating with possible tenants and getting close to a deal.

Something does not add up here.

We have Mr.Roach telling us there is a deal in the works.
Then we have Mr.Sullivan telling us he is getting close on a deal.
Also Wyman's have been renting the freezers in this building.Who are they sending the rent checks too?

Now one has to realize that these two parties are counter-suing each other.
Not only this,from what i have read i have come to the understanding that both think they own the building.
This kind of remind me of a deal that happened not too long ago. ":lol:"...
19:56 [ISL:] " »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
My reaction to Edward Johnson's Bloomberg article, given Pitcairn's recent sordid history of pervasive and culturally excused sexual violence against women, is "good." Sometimes, self-rule is a privilege.

The descendants of Fletcher Christian and the Bounty mutineers face losing control of their South Pacific island home, as Australia considers stripping the bankrupt territory of self rule.

Norfolk Island, a tiny outcrop settled by ancestors of the mutineers in 1856, is increasingly reliant on handouts from the federal government, 1,700 kilometers (1,000 miles) away in Canberra, a parliamentary committee said in a report today.

“Norfolk Island is effectively bankrupt and self-governance does not best serve the residents of the island,” committee Chairman Luke Simpkins said in a statement. “The unfortunate economic reality is that Norfolk Island is now dependent on the Commonwealth for survival” and the model of self-government, established 35 years ago, has failed the population of about 1,800 people, the report said.

Norfolk, 8 kilometers long and 5 kilometers wide, won’t give up without a fight. Chief Minister Lisle Snell, who heads its nine-person elected assembly, says the island faces a loss of democracy and accuses the federal government of trying to strip away responsibility for education, health and other services without proper consultation.

The sub-tropical island, a former penal settlement famed for its towering pine trees, is steeped in the history of the British Royal Navy mutineers, whose story was immortalized in the 1935 movie starring Clark Gable as Christian.

The sailors set Captain William Bligh adrift in 1789 after his expedition to bring breadfruit back from Tahiti floundered. A handful of the mutineers and their Tahitian wives first found refuge on Pitcairn Island. All but one died, including Christian, within a decade, mostly through infighting or clashes with the Tahitian men who had accompanied them. Their women and children survived and the community grew.

Sea Crossing

When Pitcairn could no longer sustain them, 193 men, women and children in 1856 made the five-week sea crossing to Norfolk Island. Some islanders still speak a blend of 18th-century English and Tahitian. The telephone directory is so crammed with mutineer names such as Christian, Quintal and Adams that people are also listed by nickname, including Lettuce Leaf, Quack and Moose.

The island’s population is now split in roughly equal numbers between Pitcairn descendants and Australian and New Zealand immigrants.

The local government has an annual budget of about A$30 million ($26.3 million), which it raises through a goods and services tax and from enterprises such as telecommunications, the airport and the postal service.

According to today’s report, the island faces a deficit of between A$7.4 million and A$7.8 million a year for the next three years.
19:54 [URBAN NOTE] "Strategic voting: A troubling factor in Toronto’s race for mayor?" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
The Toronto Star's Betsy Powell reports about concerns of some that strategic voting in Toronto's mayoral elections--perhaps most importantly, people voting for John Tory instead of Olivia Chow in fear that a Chow vote might mean Doug Ford's election--is a bad phenomenon. When I went to the advance polls, after much prior thought I ended up voting for Chow. I like the candidate, Ford is behind Tory significantly, and quite frankly if Doug Ford gets elected it will be because a sizable plurality of Toronto's voters want him. Some sort of electoral reform would be nice, here.

Strategic voting in the 2014 Toronto mayoral race has become a hot and contentious topic — one that pundits and partisans suggest is a symptom of a flawed municipal electoral process that needs revamping.

“The last four years have been such a polarizing time for Torontonians, in terms of the Ford factor, that in a way it’s understandable that the issue of strategic voting may be prevalent for a significant number of voters,” Ryerson University politics professor Myer Siemiatycki said Saturday.

Those in the ABF (Anybody But Ford) camp are struggling with two impulses, Semiatycki said: Do I vote for the candidate I most prefer, or do I vote for the person who has the best chance of beating Doug Ford (open Doug Ford's policard)?

“That’s the no-man’s-land in which strategic voting dilemmas start to play out and, potentially, even become agonizing for voters.”

Brian Kelcey, campaign manager for former Toronto mayoralty candidate David Soknacki, said the message they heard knocking on doors was an “overwhelming strategic voting lesson loud and clear.”

“People said to David, ‘We love you, we love your ideas, you’ve got the best platform, but I’ve got to make my choice based on getting rid of Rob or Doug Ford — and maybe talk to me next time,’” Kelcey said Saturday.
19:51 [URBAN NOTE] "In Steeltown, a familiar refrain on light rail transit" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
NOW Toronto's Paul Weinberg reports on political controversies in Hamilton over mass transit, something that he notes is related to downtown/suburban tensions as well as to concern by some at the arrival of an increasingly large contingent of Torontonians. Change in Hamilton comes painfully, it seems.

I moved with my wife to the rust belt city in May 2013 after living in Toronto almost all my life, following other younger Torontonians moving here as well because of the cheaper housing. The local realtors’ association cannot say how many former Torontonians are buying up the reasonably priced building stock. The Transportation Tomorrow Survey offers a clue. It reports that more than a third of working Hamiltonians are commuting daily outside this city by car or GO Transit, with about 82 per cent of them headed directly for the GTA.

The migration to Steeltown has picked up to the point that locals complain of recent arrivals infecting the political culture of working-class Steeltown. The current municipal elections have provided flashpoint for that debate over an issue familiar to Torontonians – the car versus light rail transit (LRT).

Brian McHattie, a planner and local councilor since 2004 who is originally from Etobicoke, is running on a progressive platform and has the support of urban activists who want to see more streets like James North in Hamilton. His slogan: A New Mayor For A New Hamilton. To that end he’s released a four-part plan for improving neighbourhoods that he’s dubbed, wait for it, Transit City.

[. . .]

For local activists who have long been fighting uphill battles for two-way, pedestrian-friendly “complete streets” here, McHattie is a bit of a godsend. They see his LRT plan as an opportunity to transform whole swaths of an economically stagnant lower city into neighbourhoods that will attract smart development.

But there’s a major roadblock: the suburban residents on Hamilton Mountain above the Escarpment who find these lower city roads handy for zipping in, out or around Hamilton in their vehicles. That sentiment is often expressed by their political representatives on council who oppose the LRT even with the province potentially willing to pay for it.
19:47 [LINK] ""Lost" Satellite Photos Reveal Surprising Views of Earth in the 1960s" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
National Geographic's James Thompson reports on two data scientists in the United States who have recovered some of the oldest satellite images of the Earth ever taken. This, among other things, gives scientists a baseline on changes in everything from sea ice cover to the shape of storms.

Scientists have uncovered a cache of satellite images of Earth from the 1960s that had been forgotten in storage for nearly 50 years and that push back the first satellite images of our planet a full 17 years.

The trove includes the first publicly available satellite photos of Europe, the earliest aerial views of Antarctica's ice, and a record of Central Asia's Aral Sea before it dried up. There's also a rare photo of the most powerful storm to hit North America in modern times.

[. . .]

Earth scientists David Gallaher and Garrett Campbell liberated the data from a National Climatic Data Center archive in North Carolina, uncovering 25 boxes of magnetic tapes and photographic film from three Nimbus weather satellites launched in the 1960s and 1970s.

Gallaher had heard about the data at a conference and called the National Climatic Data Center to request access to some pictures of Greenland. "We have no way of figuring out what's Greenland," came the reply.

That's because the data had never been sorted or digitized. So Gallaher and Campbell took on the painstaking process of digitizing hundreds of thousands of photos and making them publicly available.

19:43 [LINK] "Moonshine Runs Through the Veins of Prince Edward Island" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
This article by VICE's Ivy Knight circulated on Facebook. My exposure to moonshine culture was limited, and frankly I'm suspicious of the suggestions contained therein to the effect that it's common. Perhaps my parents did just that superb a job of shielding me from some of the negative elements of Island culture; perhaps the writer is describing the Island of a generation back. Fun read regardless.

I grew up in Prince Edward Island with a guy named Merle.* A few years prior to his wedding, Merle, a seventh-generation islander, got drunk on shine and ended up chasing his future wife around the house with a shotgun.

Shine can do that to a person, though.

The wedding didn’t happen for a few years after the incident, and when it finally did, the traditional moonshine punch was scratched off the menu. Moonshine punch almost always appears at weddings and funerals here—it’s simply a part of life. People make it for their own use and to share with friends and family.

The culture of moonshine is strong in poor, rural Canadian areas where people are used to making everything from scratch, cherish a healthy disrespect for politics and the law, and have plenty of acreage to work in total obscurity.

“Even though Prohibition was in place from 1881 until 1949, people could still access alcohol— either by smuggling it in or making it themselves,” island historian and UPEI professor Ed MacDonald tells me. “For much of that history, it wasn’t that hard to get a drink if they wanted one—it was just illegal. To make shine was a way of thumbing your nose at authority.”

[. . .]

Prince Edward Island is Canada’s smallest province. Nicknamed “Spud Island” for its incredible potatoes, famous blue mussels, and fictional literary heroine, Anne of Green Gables, our beaches and golf courses are some of the best in the country. It also happens to be the last province to repeal Prohibition. Most of Canada turned the taps back on in the 20s, but our island stayed dry until 1948. Keeping alcohol illegal for Islanders almost 20 years longer than the rest of the country became a driving force of dedication to making homemade booze.

10:54 The Succubus Photo Shoot - Part One. »The Monkey Rodeo
I'm chopping this up into two posts because of how I'm editing the images.

One of my favorite Demon models is leaving PEI, we'd worked together - she was actually the first Demon shoot ever - for about 4-5 years and I thought we needed to do something big for one last shoot.

Since, Julie, the model in question here, liked doing the more pin-up type shoots and I not only had a mould of her face, but of her head and shoulders as well, I figured this was already half done. I was more comfortable doing larger paint jobs since discovering the Pro-Aiir paints - not perfect as they will come off with friction of any sort, but they do work really well.

I also want to point out, I don't do massive elaborate makeups because that's not my market. My market is the Halloween crowd, so I tailor my stuff to not feel too out of reach to that crowd - and I've no interest in being involved in the film special effects industry, too many uniformed people with far reaching unreasonably expectations that I just don't have the patience for. With the Halloween market there's much less expectation usually and a better sense of fun when it comes to makeup.

So this project was much larger scale that I'm used to. Not only was a planning a cowl and face piece, but several horns and spines and crap all over, but fake breasts as well. I was interested in the idea of artificial nudity and how it would read and be responded to - obviously a much more comfortable thing to deal with in general as well for both me and the model.

The idea was set and I have to get it all sculpted, I started with the face, it was easy enough and I don't really recall much by way of agonizing over the design. I did several of the horns and spikes at the same time since I wasn't worried about their overall look - other than they'd be black and sinewy looking.

The breasts were easy enough, I normally use Monster Makers clay, but I thought it'd be too difficult getting a smooth rounded shape - and then another matching one - so I used regular WED clay for that, sculpting the nipples separately since they needed more detail than I felt I could get with the WED clay. They were done with Monster Makers, the idea was to glue them on, seal them and paint them all as one - which worked perfectly.Took a couple tries to get them to turn out in foam latex though.

The biggest challenge, since I don't do larger pieces very often, was the cowl. I did a full face and cowl earlier this year with Julie and it worked out okay. I learned what was a good idea and why, and what was a bad idea and why. I like to learn by doing, not listening to someone else. I decide this time around to make separate pieces, cowl and face. And rather then have a full neck wrapping around - I left the larynx area open to make it easier to slip on - which worked great and was so easy this time around.





The worst part was the horns. I decided since it was open along the front to do do my seam along the middle of the face, not from side to side like it's usually done. I didn't put a lot of details along the top of the skull and back of the neck, so I figured it'd make for a quick decent seam - and it did, it worked great. The only weird angle I had was the horns.
While they turned out well in the mould, for some reason whenever I ran it in foam, they just wouldn't gel and tore apart upon demoulding. I tried it three times. First time was a regular batch of foam, it wasn't enough. Second time it was still crap. Third time the cowl came out okay, but the horns were still not gelling and I was running out time, foam and patience. I was filling orders for Halloween at the same time and it was impossible to juggle so I had to run this when I was running stuff for orders. In the end I chose to cut the ragged horns off of the otherwise decent cowl and ran the horns themselves, attaching them afterwards - they were still a little ragged, but they worked just the same so I was happy.

I think the mould still had some moisture in it and that was causing the issues, I just didn't have time to deal with that though since I was on an incredibly tight deadline.I was doing the shoot on Monday the 20th and this was Saturday afternoon, the 18th. I still had to paint all this stuff up and get orders ready for Monday morning as well.

So it all worked, I managed to get it all painted - I even learned a little bit more about my airbrushed and clogging issues that I had never realized before too.


We had an awesome location, there was no real rush - which was good considering I had to airbrush Julie from head to toe in red. We got the cowl, face and breasts on and began painting. I knew it was going to take awhile, and even though I lost track of time, I think it was around 4 hours. It was tiring and exhausting, but I think it was well worth it. In person the makeup was okay, there were definite flaws - but I know how red holds up on camera so I was banking in it helping fudge the colours exactly how I wanted it to. And I was right, it worked perfectly.



I had to do some cleaning up, the seams were far from perfect, but for the purposes of still photos it was good enough. I won't lie and say these are exactly how it looked right from the camera, they are processed. I cleaned up the edges were needed and decided to add a little extra black to her eyes. I used some big-assed black sclera lenses with a red iris and thought it needed to go a little further.





These are the first batch from post-processing. I wanted to make sure I had some "Facebook friendly" ones to post right away and these are those images. Even though there's no nudity, I'm pretty sure there's at least one idiot out there who wouldn't read, see foam latex nipples and get all upset. I'm not interesting in pushing those limits for the sake of rights or controversy, so this was my solution.

A huge amount of the photos not only turned out, but turned out brilliantly awesome. I couldn't be happier with the results of all that hard work. Dozens and dozens of hours of sculpting, moulding, casting and painting and applying all paid off in freaking awesome Succubus shoot.

It might be a couple days before I get around to posting the rest.
