Kranked Compilation

I’m getting really tired of this song, but an awesome montage. Nice to see Ryan Leech again.

Also good to remind us why we’re moving outwest.

Fun with the Pentatonic

Check out this neat video where Bobby McFerrin gets a whole crowd to following along with him using the Pentatonic scale. It’s kind of neat how naturally it seems to come to everyone.

Real men wear cut offs!

Only a real man like Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead can pull of wearing daisy dukes and still look like a total bad ass.

Plastic Bags Least Bad for Environment: UK Environment Agency

Perhaps you think that plastic shopping bags ought to be banned–after all, four billion of them are thrown away each year.

BBC News Magazine had a look at what some countries are doing to address the problem and the disadvantages of those approaches.

Last year Britain’s Environment Agency published a Life Cycle Assessment of Supermarket Carrier Bags, which concluded that long-life bags have to be reused a number of times if they are to be environmentally a better option than standard plastic carrier bags.

For instance, if a plastic bag is used just once, then a paper bag must be used three times to compensate for the larger amount of carbon used in manufacturing and transporting it, a plastic “bag for life” must be used four times, and a cotton bag must be used 131 times.

If a plastic bag is reused, of course, then its carbon-footprint-per-use decreases further – and the number of times the alternatives have to be used to match this low footprint is multiplied.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Could be Removed from Office

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford posing for Microwave Burrito... er... for burritos in general.

Torontoist notes that Clayton Ruby Seeking Rob Ford’s Removal from Office. They have a helpful timeline of the events that led up to this too.

Prominent Toronto lawyer Clayton Ruby has filed an application with the Ontario Superior Court on behalf of Toronto resident Paul Magder, alleging that Rob Ford has violated the Province of Ontario’s Municipal Conflict of Interest Act.

That act sets out rules that govern how municipal politicians must conduct themselves while in office; one of those rules is that members of a council cannot take part in a debate if it involves their own private financial concerns. Ruby alleges that Ford did this last month, when the mayor gave a speech and cast a vote during a debate on whether he should have to repay certain donors to the Rob Ford Football Foundation. When he did so, according to Ruby, he breached the rules that are supposed to keep municipal government free from personal interests.

The penalty set out in the Conflict of Interest Act for violations of this kind: removal from office.
