To celebrate the first Canadian to command the International Space Station and to celebrate his successful efforts to get Canada and the world excited about space exploration again using social media, Chris Hadfield deserves a ticker tape parade.
There are two other reasons for doing this. First of all, ticker tape parades are awesome and why we don't have one every month is a mystery. Second, in light of the renewed enthusiasm for space exploration, Canadian citizens who care about space and the Canadian Space Agency should demand that the agency and the larger industry continue to receive funding and investment to maintain Canada's reputation as an aerospace leader.
The Canadian Space Agency's funding has been frozen for about a decade and recent federal budgets have even mandated cuts of about $30 million by 2014-15. The aerospace industry employs about 66,000 people in high-tech, well-paying jobs that are important not only to the country's technological advancement but also to the economy.
If we want to keep the jobs, the expertise, and all those nice warm feelings we get from space exploration, let's continue to invest in it — and the first step is a ticker tape parade for Commander Hadfield.
For years, millions of people have enjoyed the pristine area affectionately known to locals as "Boca Chica". World class fishing, birding, and nature watching are just a few of the things that this magical place provides. For 60 years a pure beautiful beach has been preserved by both state and county taxes. Rare wildlife is currently protected on our beach. The beach itself is a valuable asset to our country's shore.
We are all for technological improvement, just not at Boca Chica Beach. This petition seeks to stop the SpaceX project from harming our great and precious Boca Chica Beach. Stop SpaceX!
There are hundreds if not thousands of years of evidence least of all the last hundred years, that say we already have had contact with extraterrestrials.
So please accept that we have a right to know all that the American government knows on this subject.
Australia is the only western developed country without a space program, If Australia had one the benefits would be overwhelming.
> Over 9000 jobs would be created.
> Our economy would grow stronger.
> Kids who always dreamt of wanting to be astronauts can be instead of becoming American citizens and joining Nasa which would cost thousands.
> We are in the perfect position here in Australia for one. Even NASA would back an Australian Space Program.
There is some Disadvantages to this but not many, as you can see a space program would add to our already booming economy and create tons of jobs.
The two pieces of properties that runs east to west from beach to lagoon where the Lobsterfest is currently held, between Tuna and Cozy Corner running back to the Police Station, as well as the open property next to Cozy Corner on the south side, that runs east to west, beach to road side adjoining the current graveyard.
This property, which is affectionately known as the Hulse Properties, which was initially owned by Archbishop Arthur Dunn and Evadne Hulse; is the only two pieces of property that the village can and should re-acquire in downtown Placencia Village that can, once again, serve a public good, a public purpose and public space for one and all Placencians to enjoy now and in the future.
This property is of perfect size and location where we can have proper space for public parking, public beach area, properly extending our cemetery and to have a general public space.
Placencia must do everything it can to re-acquire this property, we cannot afford not to.
Whereas APUS (the Association of Part-time Undergraduate Students), has been told to vacate their NEW office at the Margaret Fletcher building (100 Devonshire Place) by December 1, 2011 for plans to build a “Centre for High Performance Sport,” of which 75% of the operating costs are expected to be paid for by students;
Whereas APUS is lobbying to preserve the Margaret Fletcher building which was built in 1909, by getting the University of Toronto administration to acknowledge it as a heritage site and withdraw its plans to demolish the building and promote conservation;
Whereas we consider the Margaret Fletcher building, attached to Woodsworth College, our permanent home! It is child-friendly, has an open meeting area, a huge front lot, a kitchen and office/programming space;
Whereas the University of Toronto administration has not offered a suitable alternative permanent space and therefore continues to undermine part-time students.
Who enjoyed STAR WARS I, II and III? I know almost every single person reading this did... and the main part of them all must be the realistic graphics and combining our real with the unreal...
Wouldn't it be amazing to see the rest of the story as if it were happening in real time? If you think so... Join... All STAR WARS fans...
برنامج الفضاء المصري عنصر أساسي من عناصر التنمية للبلاد، فهو يوفر لمصر عدة ملايين من الدولارات تصرف لشراء صور لآراضي مصر من هيئات وشركات اجنبية وتستخدم هذه الصور في التنمية بشتى أنواعها، وكذلك يمنح مصر الامكانية لتصوير آراضيها في اي وقت ولأي عدد من الصور غير محكوم بميزانية الدولة لهذا الغرض، وبذلك يساعد على التنمية بصورة أكبر. برنامج الفضاء ليس فقط محصوراً لأغراض التنمية عن طريق إلتقاط صور من الفضاء، ولكن هناك بُعد آخر، فجميع التكنولوجيات المستخدمة لانتاج قمر صناعي هي من أعلى التكنولوجيات في مجالات الصناعة، وبذلك ستنهض الصناعة المصرية بكافة أنواعها نظراً لاستخدام واستحداث تكنولوجيات عالية في خطوط الانتاج.
لذا، فنحن نطالب بدعم برنامج الفضاء المصري بل ونطالب بإنشاء وكالة الفضاء المصرية لكونها هدف قومي لمصرنا الحديثة
Town-twinnings often occur almost upon a subterfuge platform with little, if any, effect or benefit being transmitted to the people inhabiting the towns or cities being forcably tied together. We began our drive to twin Stoke with an astronomical body in a genuine effort to open up the minds of the inhabitants of Stoke-on-Trent to both the wonders of the cosmos and also the physical and social history of their city.
We identified Stephan's Quintet as being the best candidate for this twinning for two major reasons. Primarily we linked the age of the light coming from Stephan's Quintet and the age of the coal deposits beneath Stoke as being from a similar era - 304 million years old. Secondly, Stephan's Quintet is comprised of five, possibly six smaller galaxies that are slowly merging to form one super-galaxy - this holds parallels with Stoke's own multi-centred identity.
If the twinning were made official, it would enliven Stoke as an exciting place with real physical relationships with distant, exotic locations. The potential for public stargazing events and other educational opportunities would also increase.
I please ask you to consider this drive seriously and pledge your support by signing the petition.

The original Retail and Attraction Plan for the Zoso mixed use project called for, "support amenities, shopping opportunities and personal services to Zoso residents and to their Clarendon neighbors."
Specifically, the plan stated that the American Flatbread space would offer,"café style outdoor seating."
NASA and space exploration has been at the forefront of science and education here in the United States since early 1950's.
From the space program has come home computers, Teflon, solar cells, transistors and many other inventions that have saved energy, improved the health of Americans and kept this country in the forefront of science.
NASA is a major purchaser of highly technical equipment which would be affected if the funding is cut.
Currently proposed curriculum reform leaves no space for a language or criticism paper. We believe this move to be regressive, and lacking in proper student consultation.
Dropping Paper 1 would be detrimental to the University. Narrowing the course would limit the extent to which Oxford can attract and maintain the most capable and aspirational students and faculty.
Whilst aspects of the curriculum may warrant reform, losing Paper 1 in favour of maintaining space for the period papers is misguided. Learning how to analyse a text and to understand how a language can be unstable and changing brings you the confidence to approach even the hardest texts by actually beginning with the words on the page. Moreover, these skills enhance studies for the period papers.
There would be no literature without language. Scrutiny and investigation of the language we use, its history, and modes of application can only be worthwhile study.
Residential owners were sold the 222 properties with the understanding given to them by CPM Realty that there were (50) visitor car spaces for the complex, plus additional retail car spaces.
It has now been brought to our attention that both car parks in question (visitor & retail) are one and the same. The residents were told that they would be able to use the retail car spaces / (50) guest spots but now SPAR has installed Care Park machines and will charge people to use these spaces.
In 1999, Sony Pictures produced the computer-animated series “Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles”, which drew elements both from Robert Heinlein’s 1959 novel, and Paul Verhoeven’s 1997 film adaptation, appealing to the fans of book and film alike.
The series quickly gained a strong following, receiving praise from numerous science-fiction and television magazines, winning an Emmy, and being nominated for several other awards.
However, due to time and money constraints, four key episodes representing the dramatic final bend of the final story-arc were halted in mid-production, and replaced with four stand-alone clip-shows, which consisted mostly of recycled animation. But according to producer Audu Paden, the producers felt their originally planned stories were so strong, a case could be made for restoring them at a later time.
That time is now. The four missing episodes are very close to completion. The writing and scripting are done; the story’s ending is decided. The voice actors have already recorded the necessary dialogue. Storyboards and animatics lay ready to be referenced by animators and composers for a final product that can only provide a profitable boost to the Starship Troopers franchise.
Roughnecks endures as one of the best-written and most outstanding animated series television has ever seen. Its compelling story and powerful themes have touched the hearts of viewers in over thirty countries. Sony Pictures can no longer leave their impressive work unfinished, but must see it through to completion, thus stimulating their own revenue, and providing their fans with the long-awaited closure of this beloved series.

The North Kelvin Meadow Campaign (www.northkelvinmeadow.com) is a voluntary community organisation in Glasgow. At the end of 2008, volunteers began to transform a derelict playing field into an inspiring green space, including a meadow, woodland, a community orchard and allotments.
Glasgow council wants to sell the land for flats, but local people feel strongly that it should remain a community space and do not want these flats on the land. Local authorities are required by law to provide allotment sites and Cosla, the umbrella body for Scotland's councils, has compiled a report which urges local authorities to acquire, manage and develop more land for allotments.
Currently the waiting list for allotments in the area is eight years. Please support us by signing the petition and writing to your MP, MSP and Glasgow Council about it! Thanks.
Thomas Michael Fletcher, singer and guitarist of the English band called McFly, always dreamed about go to space with NASA. For a long time he tried to contact this company and watch some launches. Like his own mother, Debbie Fletcher, said "We've tried for 20 years to take him to see a shuttle launch, kept missing it. Finally got there last year but because of delay, he had to watch it from the roof of Orlando Airport while we stood at Jetty Park. Luckily his flight was delayed or he would have missed it altogether".
In some songs and videoclips of McFly you can see him talking about the space and doing something to reach this dream. We hope that this petition helps him to achieve this dream: going in a tourist trip to space. Thank you so much.
BCJ HOLDS, L.L.C. (Allen Edwin Homes) has applied to the Charter Township of Texas Planning Commission for approval of a Planned Unit Development (PUD). This proposal includes a request for rezoning (currently zoned R-2) due to substantial reductions in lot size. The reduction in lot size is due to their proposed 38.3 acres of preserved open space, including a perimeter trail that may provide beneficial neighborhood transition zones, and help retain access to open space recreation that Bay Ridge families currently enjoy in the undeveloped lot/field. Without the rezoning, the development would not include preserved open space, and would include a 216-lot subdivision (Comparison Plan), as opposed to a 237-lot subdivision (Preliminary Concept Development Plan). The Concept Plan, which includes the preserved open space, also calls for retaining the Bay Ridge Road and Bentley Drive cul-de-sacs.
However, the Township, County Road Commission, and Fire Department may or may not approve the retention of the two cul-de-sacs, in part based on Section 16-82(a)(1)b of the Zoning Ordinance under Subdivision Control, which requires that “the arrangement of streets shall provide for a continuation of existing streets from adjoining areas in the new subdivision.”
This Preserve Bay Ridge Neighborhood petition seeks approval from the Charter Township of Texas Planning Commission not to extend Bay Ridge Road and Bentley Drive into the new Concept Plan development, and to upgrade the existing cul-de-sacs as per recommendations provided by Thomas C. Wheat in his April 13, 2009 memorandum to the Planning Commission. This request is based on three important factors:
1. Concern that extending Bay Ridge Road and Bentley Drive as through-streets would degrade the quality of life, and decrease the safety of residents and children in the Bay Ridge neighborhood by increasing the speed and frequency of traffic to and from the new Rudgate Trails development.
2. Despite the lot size variance for the Concept Plan, we believe that integrating open space, or “green infrastructure,” in subdivision developments provides substantial quality of life and environmental benefits, including, but not limited to access to recreation lands; natural storm water runoff filtration and retention; wildlife habitat; and scenic beauty.
3. An adequate transition zone would help preserve the character and identity of the respective neighborhoods.
The Invader Zim Tv show, it aired on the Television channel Nickelodeon, the 2000's. It was a successful show, winning 3 awards and being nominated for 7 more, of the one that was won being an Emmy. And as the show reached the midway mark in the second season, the show was canceled, leaving 10 unfinished episodes left in the season.
And for these final episodes many of the mini half episode and one of the double episodes had the voices recorded, and many of the others have the scripts written for the episode.
I think Gordon Bell high school should have a Green Space AKA FIELD.
Upper Space was started by the Arts07 award winning Sketch City in 2007. Built over the last year and a half in an old warehouse in the cultural heart of Manchester, Upper Space is home to the region's first street art gallery space, a cafe, an event space and alternative clothing boutique.
Adopting Manchester's world renowned D.I.Y. approach to innovation and the arts, Sketch City and Marbella Cafe were joined by over 30 volunteers who gave their time and skills over the course of 6 months for the creation of a new, exciting social and artistic hub in the heart of the northern quarter of Manchester. Seeing the potential of the space and the shared ethos of the people involved, a Community Interest Company was formed that brought together Sketch City, Marbella Creative Industries and the Silverwood shop to create the Upper Space Collective. A proper grass roots venture.
Opening in February 2008, the Upper Space took the city by storm and soon developed a reputation for cutting edge events, gallery shows and promoting inclusivity to the arts across the spectrum. Having helped launch the careers of some of the regions most exciting, contemporary up and coming street artists, our aim is to promote the visual arts and the social within the city centre of Manchester and further afield.
Upper Space employees arrived to work on the 3rd of December to find the doors to the building chained and padlocked, the dispute, between the owners of the building and Sunshine Studios has resulted in Upper Space being given the options of paying 50% more rent or closing. With no forewarning being given at all to the events of the morning, Upper Space has been temporarily occupied by members of the collective until we can remove the artists work and our possessions from the building and relocate to a new premises.
We, the undersigned, do not want David Tennant to give up his role playing the Doctor in Dr. Who. Since the programme began in in the 60s there have been many doctors who all brought their own unique style to the part, but none as unique as David Tennant.
David is the best Doctor there has ever been and we are not ready yet for him to give up the role. The programme gets better and better and we are sure that David could give us just a couple of more series before he gives up.
Based on the novels by Tanya Huff, Blood Ties revolves around PI Vicki Nelson - formerly a detective with the Metropolitan Toronto Police. She was losing her sight, but quit the force rather than accept a desk job.
However, her last case turns out to be a doozy, involving vampires and the supernatural. She decides to team up with a vampire named Henry and ex-lover Mike Celluci to battle the forces of evil both normal and paranormal.
Q!PAW is a bi-weekly podcast about comics made by two british guys called Matt and Jon. http://panelologists.com/
Ever since humanity began to walk upright, comics began to be created in crude yet effective cave drawings. People evolved the amount of colors they can use by searching far and wide for different plants that can produce different colors that will allow the crude comics to become better, and allow the viewers to distinguish between guy-with-a-spear #1 and guy-with-a-spear #2.
As time progressed those crude drawings spread as far as egypt where color was abundent (which is weird considering it's mostly sand) where the art of comics became more elaborate and more of an art form.
It continued to evolve greatly by USA companies like Marvel and DC that saw a vision, and that vision was "let's make money" - a vision which they hold to this day.
And ever since that art form was conceived there were people who were more than happy to poo-poo it.
People who couldn't draw comics so they had to trace it, and add pouches to the original work to make it crap.
Those guys are Q!PAW. And they're funny.
In 1967, Australia launched their first satellite, WRESAT. While they may not have used an Australian built rocket (the USA donated a Redstone rocket), the effort was coordinated NOT by the Australian Government, but by CSIRO and the Universities.
Australia, along with the Soviet Union, USA and France, led the way, as it was the fourth country on our planet to insert a satellite into orbit.
Since then our space related activities have been virtually non-existent, largely due to the attitude of Robert Menzies, who oversaw the disassembly of the Woomera space launch facilities.
The only launch vehicle Australia has is built by ASRI, a non-profit organisation, and is capable of sending only up to 100kg into orbit. Compare this to the USA and Russia, who are sending people to into orbit and to the Moon. Even countries such as Iran and South Korea have launch facilities and plans to send up their own satellites.
Australia has no such plans. Australia has no space program. In this era, spaceflight will play a large role, and Australia will not be a part of it, as other countries go on to explore and colonise the Moon and Mars, unless we act now and rebuild our space program.
Please spread awareness and help inspire a generation of scientists and engineers in Australia. It is time for Australia to take the lead - humans to Mars in 10 years!

According to the Lakewood Property Owners Association by-laws we are being restricted in whether we can park a motorcycle in front of our home in our designated parking space.
Atlantic Yards is one of the newest projects in Brooklyn. Looming over the MTA and LIRR's Vanderbuilt rail yards, it is one of the most constructive projects to be done this decade according to atlantic yard.com.
The project of Atlantic Yards' surrounding perimeter is Flatbush avenue, Pacific street, Dean Street, and Vanderbuilt avenue. Which is in the area of Downtown Brooklyn . Atlantic Yards is a 4.2 billion dollar project that includes a sports and entertainment arena that will be home to the basketball team the nets, new buildings for commercial and office space, open space, and a hotel.
Atlantic Yards will solve the problems of insufficient buildings and housing. There is just not enough residential space, such as apartments in downtown Brooklyn. The apartments that do exist have several setbacks such as bad plumbing and heating, broken ceilings cracked walls, and broken windows. New buildings are desperately needed. The unemployment rate is high due to a lack of bussiness in retail according to the "Brooklyn Market Review of Spring 2006", recent developments have been steadily improving Downtown Brooklyn's economy.
The Atlantic Yards project will bring a multitude of economic activity, that will provide many jobs for Downtown Brooklyn. One of the two main sources that will bring jobs into the area are the construction projects and the new NETSb arena.
The four Atlantic Yards communities are seperated by the railyards. The railyards prevents citizens from easily going from one community to the other. The Atlantic Yards project solves this problem by connecting the communities by turning most of the railyards into open- space. Atlantic yards is a project that will create more jobs, set up affordable housing and build new buildings.
The solution to downtown Brooklyn's problems is the Atlantic Yards project. The Atlantic Yards project will create 6,860 homes of mixed income. Of which 4,500 will be rental units. Half of these will be put aside for middle and low income families. This will solve the problem of high rent and lack of housing for people in the Atlantic Yards area. Due to the construction on the Atlantic Yards project new construction job oppurtunities will be available. Forest City Ratner ( an urban real estate company , the head of Atlantic Yards) has promised minority and women owned companies will be the prioritry for hire.
The Construction of Atlantic Yards will create enough jobs to last for ten years. In addition to creating new jobs, Atlantic Yards which will be built over the rail yards will connect the four existing Brooklyn Communities and provide new open space. The new development Atlantic Yards will be a great happenning. Downtown Brooklyn will look cleaner ( without any of the new Brooklyn Buildings that were cracked or broken) and more organized. Building the Nets arena will cause another subway opening , which leads directly to ten subway lines and the LIRR, which will reduce traffic. Also the Atlantic Yards project will fit in nicely with the skyline of existing communities. The economic benefits of the project are 6 billion dollars in tax revenue, new jobs, and greater oppurtunity for bussiness to thrive according to Atlantic Yards .com. Atlantic Yards, by creating millions of jobs, bringing in an arena, putting out plenty of affordable homes, and bringing in revenue will be, according to sports economist andrew Zimbalist Brooklyn's greatest " economic generator".
In 2003 the Public School Board along with the Catholic School Board decided not to build schools in Briarwood. The land that tho schools were to be built on is owned by three groups; Boychuck Construction (60%), Northridge (10%) and the City of Saskatoon (30%).
The land was rezoned for single family dwellings and the developers would like to proceed with the building of such houses. The builders presented the community with a plan to build 44 dwellings in the above mentioned sites.
The residents of Briarwood feel deceived by the decision not to build a school, since the purchase of their homes was based on the assumption that a school would be placed in these lots. The residents that own lots adjacent to the school sites paid a premium for their lots that is not equitable to what residents who neighbor other developed areas paid.
The builders will profit from the development of these sites, the City will profit not onlyl from the sale, but from the property taxes generated by this lots and the residents of Briarwood will lose the green space that a school yard would have provided our community.
