Sugar Coated


About the video:

How did the food industry get us to stop asking the question: is sugar toxic? It all starts with a secret PR campaign dating back to the 1970s. For forty years, Big Sugar deflected all threats to its multi-billion dollar empire, while sweetening the world's food supply. As obesity, diabetes, and heart disease rates skyrocket, doctors are now treating the first generation of children suffering from fatty liver disease. The sugar industry is once again under siege. They dodged the bullet once. Will they do it again? Wednesday May 27 at 9pm (ET).

World awaits royal baby's debut



Одна канадская наблюдательница за монархией (Я не знаю как по другому перевести "royal watcher". И я не могу представить как и где можно получить эту профессию.) сказала вчера по государственному телевидению, что нам - канадцам - страшно повезло, что у нас есть монархия. И что американцы готовы на убийство, чтобы и у них была монархия.


Да здравствует наш королёк молодой...

И наплевать на голодных канадских детей...

Flipping houses... no - neutrinos!

An important new discovery has been made in Japan about neutrinos.

These are the ghostly particles that flood the cosmos but which are extremely hard to detect and study.

Experiments have now established that one particular type, known as the muon "flavour", can flip to the electron type during flight.

The observation is noteworthy because it allows for the possibility that neutrinos and their anti-particle versions might behave differently.

If that is the case, it could be an explanation for why there is so much more matter than antimatter in the Universe.

PMO asked staff to supply 'enemy' lists to new ministers

Prime Minister Stephen Harper's office asked staff to include a list of "friend and enemy stakeholders" in their transition binders for new ministers appointed in Monday's cabinet shuffle, according to a leaked email.

The email, obtained by CBC News and several other media outlets, was sent July 4 by Erica Furtado in the Prime Minister's Office and shows a checklist for what should be in the transition binders.


Так сколько времени надо нашей планете чтобы облететь вокруг нашего же солнца?

More than 40 per cent of Australians do not know how long it takes the Earth to travel around the sun, according to a new survey.

The Australian Academy of Science surveyed more than 1,500 people, asking them basic scientific questions.

It found nearly 30 per cent did not know if humans lived at the same time as dinosaurs, and that 41 per cent did not know it took the Earth a year to travel around the sun.



Интересно, a какой процент канадцев не знает ответ на этот вопрос?
Красота-то какая!

Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have, for the first time, determined the true colour of a planet orbiting another star. If seen up close this planet, known as HD 189733b, would be a deep azure blue, reminiscent of Earth’s colour as seen from space.

But that's where the similarities end. This "deep blue dot" is a huge gas giant orbiting very close to its host star. The planet's atmosphere is scorching with a temperature of over 1000 degrees Celsius, and it rains glass, sideways, in howling 7000 kilometre-per-hour winds [1].
