The Real Thanksgiving Story

Travel Between The Pages


This recently released film by French artist JR could not be more timely. The short film simply titled Ellis stars Robert De Niro and was written by Eric Roth. Ellis follows a young immigrant’s experience in search of a new life and home in America.


At the heart of the film is the former Ellis Island immigration center in New York Harbor. Now a moving museum complex, the center welcomed more than 12 million migrants to the United States between 1892 and 1954.

Google Drive for iOS Gets 3D Touch and Multitasking Features

I Web Guy Blog

More apps are now embracing 3D Touch, a flagship feature Apple introduced with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. After Facebook, Dropbox, WhatsApp, and Waze among other apps enabling support for the feature, Google has updated Drive, a productivity suite to add support for 3D Touch, as well as support for multitasking features.

The company updated Drive for iOS to version 4.4 to add 3D Touch functionality. Apple’s new smartphones come with a pressure sensitive display that recognises the amount of pressure a user puts with a finger and triggers options accordingly. A hard-press on an app icon, or an icon inside the app, gives users a set of contextual actions without opening an app.

Drive offers users the ability to quickly upload photos, or make a search for content stored, when pressed hard on the app icon. The app is also getting the ability to receive push notifications whenever…

Polar Bear Safari

Owen Slater Photography

2015 was another great polar bear season up in Churchill, Manitoba with Bill Lamberton and Les Stegenga from Classic Canadian Tours! The bears were plentiful, playful and best of all, there were lots of mothers with cubs. Almost all of the bears were in good to great condition, including one massive male that dwarfed the others. Scroll down to see and read just a few of the highlights.

A large male bear comes in close for an amazing, up-close experience. It’s no wonder why they have the title, « Lords of the Arctic. » Their huge roman noses give them a very distinguished look, but more importantly it’s used to detect seals 30km away and through several meters of snow.

Black Friday Bargains Are Fewer Than You Think

I Web Guy Blog

Before lining up at a retail store or firing up your computer for Black Friday bargains this week, ask yourself one question: Have you ever scored a great deal from the annual post-Thanksgiving shopping bonanza?

If you were hard-pressed to think of something, you would not be alone. Black Friday, which has traditionally been the moment to flock to stores for steep discounts, and which has evolved to also include major online sales events for retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and Wal-Mart, is not all that it is billed to be. We asked J.D. Levite, the deals editor of product-recommendations website The Wirecutter, for some data on just how beneficial the deals are on Black Friday – and the answer was not encouraging.

Year round, Levite and his team track product prices across the Web to unearth discounts on goods of all types, from gadgets to kitchenware. They also look…

I Web Guy Blog

The rumoured Nokia C1, the smartphone that has been in leaks since late last year, has now surfaced in a new render image on the Web.

Nous parlons ici de l’apothéose du néolibéralisme le  plus pur!

Il y a eu de la corruption et de la collusion à grande échelle dans l’industrie de la construction et l’appareil politique au Québec, mais la juge Charbonneau ne blâme officiellement personne, ce qui laisse de nombreux observateurs sur leur appétit.

Mardi matin, la juge France Charbonneau a décrit les principales conclusions de son rapport fort attendu, pendant une vingtaine de minutes. Mais elle n’a répondu à aucune question pour défendre le travail de la Commission.

Dans son très volumineux rapport produit au terme de 4 ans de travaux qui ont coûté presque 45 M$ aux contribuables, la Commission (CEIC) écorche principalement l’ex-maire de Montréal Gérald Tremblay, estimant qu’il aurait dû savoir ce qui se passait sous son nez à titre de maire et chef de parti.

How to overcome throwbacks and re-activate your training routine after a long pause?


Young woman exhausted after running on a cold winter day

This is not a scientific article. The following information and advices are only based on personal experience.
Over the past ten years, training and exercising have been my loyal companions through everyday life. I must admit that I am a very stubborn self-torturer when it comes to sporting activities. I am an enthusiastic jogger and I love “hard core training” such as HIIT (high intensity interval training), Taebo (Taekwondo meets Kick box) and all other kinds of “get ripped – get crazy— die hard” courses. Recently, a friend of mine, to whom I am very grateful, introduced me to Shaun T´s Fitness Programs (Insanity and Focus T 25). For those who are not familiar with Shaun T´s concept and are wondering what I am talking about, I would only say: It is WORTH trying it out, google it, be courageous and give it a chance.

Anyhow, back to…
