  • I can only approach this from an emotional sense of sadness, I’m a Canuck but my wife & I stay in hotels in the US several times a yr. I also have a love for American cities and whether a hotel or a downtown coffee shop I love that paper, so weird to read “ it’s profitable from the Hotels” so it appears

    I can only approach this from an emotional sense of sadness, I’m a Canuck but my wife & I stay in hotels in the US several times a yr. I also have a love for American cities and whether a hotel or a downtown coffee shop I love that paper, so weird to read “ it’s profitable from the Hotels” so it appears the demise of the print version is soon “ but” this avenue that’s making money is going to cease ??

  • Why don’t you show a picture of Bernadine instead of Margaret in this header for cryin out loud ? C’mon guys !

  • Holy Mackerel !! What a beaut of an example of “Bureaucracy gone wild “ I mean “ just do it” and bring all these souls back from the brink , think what you’ll save on anti-depressants alone, all the money these great citizens will save is going to instantly get spent on Vacations, Cars , Boats & you

    Holy Mackerel !! What a beaut of an example of “Bureaucracy gone wild “ I mean “ just do it” and bring all these souls back from the brink , think what you’ll save on anti-depressants alone, all the money these great citizens will save is going to instantly get spent on Vacations, Cars , Boats & you name which will be taxed and paid out on tips and it’s a wash !! It would cost probably nuthin !!!

  • This is a perfect however hard to comprehend example of an easy yet vital fix , unplug every electronic piece of poo used in elections.

    Voting Provincially ,Municipally & Federally in Canada you are registered & when you go to the poll there are these amazing things called “ People” of every tribe

    This is a perfect however hard to comprehend example of an easy yet vital fix , unplug every electronic piece of poo used in elections.

    Voting Provincially ,Municipally & Federally in Canada you are registered & when you go to the poll there are these amazing things called “ People” of every tribe & colour & every political stripe and somehow they are the best of us, both young & old , mostly older Women of great respect sit with rulers & sheets with names they confirm your also human and you make your mark with a pencil about the size of a horse’s leg, then the ballots are triple checked by these “ People” things , with supervisors, works flawless ! Never have my wife & I plus kids missed voting and everyone involved are just exceptional ! Makes a body feel good ! Go USA ! Greatest Democracy in history! Get your game face back on !!!!

  • Quartz commenters are so well seasoned with this Wow ! So I managed a production facility a friend hired my youngest boy to work in the warehouse across the lot, ( bad idea) after supper he lays it on me “Dad there is 2 guys stealing product at night & selling it out the back door , do I rat them out

    Quartz commenters are so well seasoned with this Wow ! So I managed a production facility a friend hired my youngest boy to work in the warehouse across the lot, ( bad idea) after supper he lays it on me “Dad there is 2 guys stealing product at night & selling it out the back door , do I rat them out ? I’ve already pleaded with them to stop “ ( he is a dynamite kid) I said if they don’t stop you should go to management , ( or be nice & do nothing ) he did , these guys got warned & eventually just left, not until they slapped him around , yrs later both of them came to me & apologized and said they both regretted their behaviour badly ( they had become managers ! ) anyway its a tough “ row to hoe” but “ stay thirsty for kindness my friends” there is more to write about incredibly nasty sociopathic behaviour by managers & workers , now there’s a topic ! Dealt with a handful and that is UGLY stuff !!

  • Interesting stuff , there is one nuance I’m surprised is missed here, I was on the road 2 yrs. ( now just some weekends) and many musicians gain fluidity & crazy skill levels because you might not practice at all but if your on stage almost every night man you are rockin it “ but “ here’s the rub “

    Interesting stuff , there is one nuance I’m surprised is missed here, I was on the road 2 yrs. ( now just some weekends) and many musicians gain fluidity & crazy skill levels because you might not practice at all but if your on stage almost every night man you are rockin it “ but “ here’s the rub “ , this doesn’t work for everyone, some guys & gals just seem to stay static , they play some what robotic , I played with a concert keyboardist but he ( hard to believe) was technically over the top but had no feeling coming through when he played, another less skilled guy would play the same piece and you’d be jumpin out of your seat goin “ yeah baby” I’m always fascinated by this and actually love this the most about music , some guys & gals got that unmeasurable “ thing” I love it !!! So pathetic that in today’s sterile enviro every computer tech savvy company somewhere wants to measure this & everything else “ lets quantify it” gotta remember man when using music as an example it’s wrong cuz it’s an Art !!!

  • Mmmmm I have a form of Muscular Dystrophy and am the proud owner of

    2 very annoying “ club feet” ( didn’t ask

    for them ) I rely on a nice cozy pr. of

    Converse Runners , can they afford to let me in ?

  • Man this stuff never ends ! I really hope the whole world doesn’t go down someday from a “ Bad Robot” ( smile everytime I see that one at a movie opener)

  • Although I’m a dinosaur “some” systems are overly complex, high tech instrumentation is a great tool in the right hands , I lived through programs replacing brains , very comical at times ! no different how some computer systems are stinkers, spend time in machine shops or high tech labs the smartest

    Although I’m a dinosaur “some” systems are overly complex, high tech instrumentation is a great tool in the right hands , I lived through programs replacing brains , very comical at times ! no different how some computer systems are stinkers, spend time in machine shops or high tech labs the smartest people will tell you epic tales of poorly designed computerized systems that are inherently bad and they will tell you “ here’s the one the company should’ve bought” how many “ refits” in the Armed Forces” aren’t just because “ it’s time” it’s because the system was a lemon.

  • Weiyee ! Your best post ever ! Colleen Wilson ! right on ! As another Quartz dude mentioned most of these families employ thousands and create our economy with all its challenges,my biggest concern is do we have a societal structure that breeds the juice for people to “ give back” Philanthropy is the

    Weiyee ! Your best post ever ! Colleen Wilson ! right on ! As another Quartz dude mentioned most of these families employ thousands and create our economy with all its challenges,my biggest concern is do we have a societal structure that breeds the juice for people to “ give back” Philanthropy is the ultimate best fruit of a persons labour !
