By Mikaya Heart

As someone who has worked hard to make the world a better place, I have tried to share with others not so fortunate. One day I gave some money to a family who didn’t have enough to eat. The man of the family used the money to buy a gun and then threatened his wife with it. Was it my responsibility what he did with the money I gave him? I felt it was, and ever since then I’ve been very careful who I give to. Read the rest of this entry »

When people talk about what will happen in the future, often what is spoken of is what will happen to the environment, or what new technology will be available- and also about space tourism. Of course, space tourism is one of those things that seems like it won’t be accessible to the general public anytime soon- not until average people have millions of dollars to spare on a flight to the moon. But what if space tourism could be accessed on earth? That’s exactly what two tourists in Sudan tried to do, according to a Reuters report. Read the rest of this entry »

Hockey

Josef Jacobson
200 word online story

On February 14, 2010, hockey enthusiasts and hosiers alike will converge on Toronto’s St. Michael’s college to compete in the 11th Annual Toronto Classic Table Hockey Tournament.
Although the top players all hail from Ontario, table hockey players from Alberta to Quebec and even the United States are known to participate in the tournament.

Table hockey players take their game very seriously. Ontario leagues from Peterborough and Cambridge have streamlined their rules for tournament play. On the Ontario Table Hockey Association website, the rules and regulations page approaches 900 words in length.

Players are penalized for forming illegal defensive structures in front of their goal and for maintaining puck possession for more than five seconds without a shot on goal.
The tournament festivities will last all day, with round-robin matches being played in the morning to determine where all players will be seeded. After lunch, the games that really matter are played. In best-of-three contests, competitors play their hardest as the losers face elimination. This goes on until only one player remains.

For these men, table hockey is not simply a game; it’s a way of life.

Josh Ungar Writes About the Conundrum of the Rubix Cube

Josh Ungar

Just how fast can you twist and solve it? If you’re like most people who try without any method, probably not at all.

People have been trying to solve the Rubix Cube since 1974, when it was invented by a Hungarian professor of architecture named Erno Rubik. Now 36 years later, the Rubix Cube has been sold an estimated 350 million times, making it the best selling toy of all time.

For some people, solving the fifty-four sided cube is more than just a pass-time. People have developed advanced mathematical algorithms to solve the cube, and around the world Rubix Cube speed challenges are growing in popularity. The current record for solving a standard Rubix Cube is 7.08 seconds, set by Erik Akkersdijk in 2008 at the Czech Open.

If solving the Rubix Cube normally isn’t already a large enough challenge, there are also world speed cubing (solving the Rubix Cube as quickly as possible) challenges that include events like solving the cube blindfolded, with your feet, and even underwater in a single breath. So for everybody out there looking for a mental workout or dexterity challenge, the Rubix Cube offers a great alternative. Besides, Akkersdijk is just waiting for a new challenger.

Child With Chocolate

KRAFT’S NEWEST TAKEOVER
CAITLIN STOJANOVSKI
300480175
19 January 2010

The last six months of heated debate have finally melted the milk chocolate core of Cadbury.

Kraft Foods, a major food manufacturer in the United States that distributes worldwide, have made a successful bid to purchase the United Kingdom-based chocolate company. The bid, a £11.5 billion, which is $18.9 billion USD, was accepted on Tuesday morning.

This successful bid has caused an uproar with employees and residents in the founding city of the company.

“It’s not just about jobs, it’s also about being British. It’s the end of a great British company,” said one woman, 51, to Reuters UK, who worked with the company for over 31 years.

The globalization of many companies seems to be an underlying factor in this purchase. Each company distributes worldwide, with headquarters based in different countries. While there is no immediate competition between these companies, it is the ability to expand that is vital.

“We have great respect for Cadbury’s brands, heritage and people,” Irene Rosenfeld, the chairman and chief executive of Kraft Foods said. “We believe they will thrive as part of Kraft Foods.”

Cadbury, which produces over 40 types of confectionary, has been a leader in the industry since 1824. Kraft Foods, based in the United States, is a multi-billion dollar company that has been expanding to create a wider variety of consumables.

Emily Hunter Writes About the Tar Sands Expansion

Online Story #1
Panel opens doors to tar sands expansion
By Emily Hunter

The Alberta tar sands project could now expand past Canadian borders and across the Pacific, with a new Enbridge pipeline in the works. The Pembina Institute warns this could turn our national “eco-disaster” into a global one.

The proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline received a green-light last December by a Joint Review Panel. The results have made an uproar amongst environmental groups, including the Pembina Institute, a climate watch-dog organization, who says the pipeline would increase the oil sands by 30 per cent.

“The Panel has deliberately turned a blind eye toward the bigger picture environmental impacts of new oil sands production that would be required to fill this pipeline,” said Simon Dyer, Oil Sands Program Director at the Pembina Institute in a press release.

The 1,200 km pipeline would transport the Alberta petroleum products to the British Columbia coast, “opening the door” to global tar sands expansion, the group says. The expansion, Pembina warns, would also increase the impact of the environmental and social dilemmas that come with the oil production, including accelerating Canada’s greenhouse gasses by 6.5 megatonnes, the equivalent to putting another 1.6 million cars on the road.

“At a time when significant reductions in emissions are needed, it is irresponsible to ignore the 6.5 megatonnes of annual greenhouse gas emissions that would result from this project,” said Karen Campbell, Staff Counsel with the Pembina Institute. “It is nonsensical to consider whether a pipeline project is in the interest of Canadians while ignoring the impacts of the oil filling the pipeline.”

Fiona Persaud Writes About the Cruise Ship Controversy in Haiti

In class Assignment: Cruise Ships Docking in Haiti

Many are outraged to hear that cruise liners are still docking in Haiti for a vacation filled with sunset paradise and jet skiing. At first it appeared to be a PR disaster for the Florida cruise line Royal Caribbean. However, their decision to continue to dock in Labadee, a private resort on the northcoast, appears to have a few strong justifications for there decision.

The cruise line has supported its decision by arguing that the ships will bring food and aid. They have also announced that they will donate all the proceeds made during the visit to relief for the disaster stricken country.

“In the end, Labadee is critical to Haiti’s recovery; hundreds of people rely on Labadee for their livelihood,” John Weis, vice-president of the cruise line, told The Guardian.

He noted that Haiti will benefit from the revenue stating that “we cannot abandon Haiti now that they need us most.”

Some passengers were pleased to hear this news while others remained displeased.

“I just can’t see myself sunning on the beach [and] playing in the water… while [in Port-au-Prince] there are tens of thousands of dead people being piled up on the streets, with the survivors stunned and looking for food and water,” one passenger wrote on the Cruise Critic Internet forum.

Some passengers have decided to remain on deck in distaste for the decision.

Attached are new car dealer counts by brand for the decade. I break out dealer counts by the dealers that are selling primarily luxury brand vehicles from those that are what I call full line dealers. There are a couple of issue with this data though. First, Lincoln and Cadillac dealer counts are not available separate from their parent company totals so I can’t include them in the luxury dealer table. Second, I have no where to put Mini and smart dealers so I include them in the full line table of dealers even though they are very narrow in their product scope. Read the rest of this entry »

Attached are sales per dealer for the decade. I sent a note out about these a few days ago but there was a technical error that I wanted to correct. We were never able to get the number of smart car dealers which operate out of Mercedes Benz stores so we always included smart sales as part of the Mercedes-Benz sales per dealers numbers. Mercedes-Benz has now provided me with accurate smart dealer counts so we are able to provide a cleaner analysis with MB broken out separate from smart. We always did break out BMW and Mini so the previous analysis did warp the analysis slightly. Read the rest of this entry »

You could technically include KIA in this list. KIA started in 1999 but their first full year was the year 2000. There also was the loss of one brand. Daewoo left Canada as a stand alone in 2002 although GM absorbed all their models immediately and sold them through the GM dealer network. Read the rest of this entry »

The three of them are radically different especially after the last 12 months of crisis. Each also are very different from a structural point of view and position and performance in the market. But none the less this is still how the industry looks at things so I’ll also do it this way.

Kirk Verner Writes about a Car Accident in Saskatchewan - Photo Courtesy of Dreamstime.com

By Kirk Verner

I was saddened to hear of a horrifying, fatal accident that took place in rural Saskatchewan, my hometown, over the holiday season. By the way people drive on the blustery Saskatchewan highways you’d think this was certainly where a fatal accident would ultimately occur in late December, but nasty road conditions or invincible 4X4 drivers were not to blame.
