6 soldiers pull up on a main street in Halifax, Nova Scotia
as part of a parade. They’re in a standard issue WWII type Willys Jeep. In the span of about 4 to 5 minutes they completely disassemble the vehicle and reassemble it and drive off in it fully operable! The idea being to show the
genius that went into the making of the jeep and its basic simplicity.

As a teacher, ‘internet’ or ‘texting’ speak drives me insane. I tell students to re-do their work if I catch them doing this. Why? Because the sad truth is that I can’t take them seriously if they put that stuff in an assignment, and what’s worse is that future employers won’t take them seriously if they put that kind of stuff in a resume or any projects that come in.
In ancient times, it used to take ages to deliver and convey messages from one place to another. But, thanks to the massive development in the field of information technology, the world has now turned into a global village where any messages or information is delivered in the speed of light.
SMS, e-mail, social networking sites are now speedy ways to send messages. SMS turns out to be a hit among all as it is an inexpensive way of conveying messages. Unfortunately SMS is now tagged along with its own set of short forms and spellings that are no where the correct form and are known to everyone as ‘SMS lingo’. The students are the most affected ones when it comes to the habit of using SMS language as it saves their time while taking down notes in classroom or while writing assignments, reported Kevin Mendonsa and Saira Kurup…
The sun was shining, the birds were singing…and the Shannon was burning. Of all the things I forgot to pack with me I regret not packing sunblock the most.

The set up in the morning was brilliant – we were able to bring the car in and offload all of our supplies right at the table that had been set up for us. The end of the day, however, was not nearly as organized. We were not allowed to drive the car over to pick up our supplies, and instead had to haul everything about 500 feet to the car where it was parked in the parking lot. Carts were out of the question, as the wheels would sink into the grass once the dolly was loaded. We were not impressed with the way the ‘take down’ was set up for vendors. Which is really too bad…that’ the thing that sits with me – not the music we could hear in the distance, or the adorable dogs that were taking their people out for a walk…the lousy way the take-down was organized and how we were not told about this change of plans until I went over to one of the organizers to ask where I could bring the car around. Shame.
Nathan: Guess what’s racing at Hastings this weekend? Me: Horses. Nathan: No…more exotic. Me: Emus. Nathan: No… Me: Kangaroos. Nathan: Ummm….no. Left field. Me: Miniature horses? Nathan: Closer! Me: *getting excited* Miniature donkeys? Nathan: No…that’s kind of the same as mini horses. Me: *thinking* Whippets? Nathan: Closer! Now think *TINIER!* Me: *losing my cool completely* Mini wiener dogs?! Nathan: Yes! Me: *dance/hopping around the kitchen yelling out ‘WIENER DOGS!’ over and over again* Nathan: So we’re going on Sunday, right?
I don’t think he understands I’m sneaking out of the races with a dog under each arm.
