I know let's take a photo of a raccoon being forced to sit beside a toddler!
“Ancient Earth, the tool behind this millennia-spanning visualization, is the brainchild of Ian Webster, curator of the world’s largest digital dinosaur database. As Michael D’estries reports for Mother Nature Network, Webster drew on data from the PALEOMAP Project—spearheaded by paleogeographer Christopher Scotese, the initiative tracks the evolving “distribution of land and sea” over the past 1,100 million years—to build the map. Users can input a specific address or more generalized region, such as a state or country, and then choose a date ranging from zero to 750 million years ago. Currently, the map offers 26 timeline options, traveling back from the present to the Cryogenian Period at intervals of 15 to 150 million years…”

thought this was sort of interesting as we were just talking about chalking tires and more high tech ways to monitor parking!
Wow – via NPR – “The next time parking enforcement officers use chalk to mark your tires, they might be acting unconstitutionally. A federal appeals court ruled Monday that “chalking” is a violation of the Fourth Amendment. The case was brought by Alison Taylor, a Michigan woman whom the court describes as a “frequent recipient of parking tickets.” The city of Saginaw, Mich., like countless other cities around the country, uses chalk to mark the tires of cars to enforce time limits on parking…
Trespassing upon a privately-owned vehicle parked on a public street to place a chalk mark to begin gathering information to ultimately impose a government sanction is unconstitutional under the Fourth Amendment,” Taylor’s lawyer, Philip Ellison, wrote in a court filing. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit unanimously agreed. Chalking tires is a kind of trespass, Judge Bernice Donald wrote for the panel, and it requires a warrant. The decision affects the 6th Circuit, which includes Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee…”

The Conversation: “With the proliferation of smartphones, it’s easy to assume that the era of the paper map is over. That attitude, that digital is better than print, is what I call “technochauvinism.” In my book, “Artificial Unintelligence: How Computers Misunderstand the World,” I look at how technochauvinism has been used to create an unnecessary, occasionally harmful bias for digital over print or any other kind of interface. A glance at the research reveals that the paper map still thrives in the digital era, and there are distinct advantages to using print maps.

Cricket bars for Annika :)
Food columnist Gail Johnson says cricket protein is loaded with nutrients, including vitamin B12, iron, calcium, and amino acids — and, of course, lots of protein. She says cricket protein-based energy bars could be a hit for kids as school starts.
Nooooo will the wealthy elderly of Oak Bay go to war against the deer now?
An Oak Bay, B.C., woman was knocked over and stomped by herd of deer that likely perceived her as a threat to a fawn.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE PARTY?
Commuters rejoice, East 1st Avenue was fully reopened to traffic on Thursday afternoon.
The busy thoroughfare, one of Vancouver’s key arterial routes, has been closed to vehicles from Nanaimo Street to Clark Drive since early July as Fortis B.C. replaced roughly 5 km of 20-inch gas line in favour of 30-inch line.
“We recognize that the full closure has been an inconvenience for residents and commuters – it’s work that Fortis B.C. had to get done,” says Jerry Dobrovolny, general manager of engineering services for the City of Vancouver. “We’re very appreciative to their team for an early opening, as well as to all residents, businesses, and commuters for their patience and understanding during this work.”
Fortis B.C. says periodic work from Rupert to Nanaimo Street will continue until early September, with ongoing lane closures near the Highway #1 overpass that are expected to wrap up in early fall.
During construction, the city of Vancouver worked with Fortis B.C. to install several temporary traffic calming measures throughout the Hastings-Sunrise and Granville-Woodlands neighbourhoods to reduce short-cutting on local streets.
Some of these temporary measures will remain in place as traffic patterns stabilize following the Vancouver portion of the gas line upgrades, and as work continues near Highway 1 and into Burnaby.
“This will provide the opportunity to gather data and assess whether the closures could provide any ongoing benefit for residents. Once assessment is complete, the City will reach out to the community with more information and options,” the city said in a release.
a bear is walking towards your kids and you...take a picture?
“My brother and I on our first backpacking trip about 12 years ago in the Glen Aulin backpacker’s campground in Yosemite National Park. My dad took the pic while he was making breakfast, it was about 6:30 a.m. We were startled, and then more in awe, but not scared as black bears don’t bother people unless you’re messing with their kids. The bear walked right past us to our bear proof food canister, sniffed it, batted it around, then walked away.”

Xena's not the only one who enjoys a roll in the grass
A sasquatch tracker plans to convince a B.C. Supreme Court judge to allow a lawsuit against the provincial government to proceed.
Todd Standing will be in court in New Westminster on Tuesday to argue the province has “breached its stewardship responsibility” by failing to recognize and protect the legendary creature sometimes referred to as Bigfoot.
A spokesperson for the Ministry of Forests told Postmedia the province will move to dismiss the case.
“They’re trying to deny my evidence without even looking at it,” Standing said. “They’ve gone at this with a sledgehammer. My lawyer is arguing that they at least need to hear the evidence before deciding.”
The sasquatch tracker said he was “confident” the case would be allowed to proceed to trial if a judge took the time to consider his evidence.
B.C. sasquatch researcher Todd Standing is suing the provincial government in an effort to prove Bigfoot exists.
In a lawsuit filed in B.C. Supreme Court in October, Standing accused the provincial government of damaging his livelihood and credibility by “non-recognition of sasquatch.” He asked the court to require a government biologist to accompany him into “known sasquatch habitat” for three months to prove his claims.
The government’s response, filed Jan. 25 at the New Westminster registry, denies Standing’s version of the alleged facts and “denies that the plaintiff suffered or continues to suffer any loss, damage or expense as alleged in the notice of civil claim.”
Standing, who once took Les Stroud, TV’s Survivorman, into the backcountry to search for sasquatch, studied wildlife in university. He said he set out to prove that sasquatch couldn’t exist because there was no space in the ecosystem for them, but soon became convinced of the opposite.
But the sasquatch tracker has also attracted his fair share of controversy, with some in the Bigfoot community saying he faked video footage of a sasquatch. He makes money running weeklong sasquatch-seeking expeditions, charging US$4,800 for a “breathtaking adventure” in the Canadian wilderness.
Standing stands behind his video and is asking anyone else who has encountered a sasquatch to contact him through his website, sylvanic.com.
