Topic Oscar Pistorious. Double amputee Olympic sprinter.
Posted 15 Sep 2014 06:33

Mine isn't the popular opinion, but I think the judge got it right with culpable homicide/manslaughter. Based on the evidence I wasn't convinced *beyond a reasonable doubt*. There's a big difference between "I think this is what happened" and "I'm convinced beyond a reasonable doubt this is what happened," which has to be held to the highest standard.

One of the things that gave me pause was this tweet that he posted a year before Reeva was killed. He's a paranoid/anxious person and has a proven history of confronting noises and possible "intruders". He's also reckless with firearms. Bad combination.

Topic Advice on maybe getting a tattoo...
Posted 15 Sep 2014 06:16

I like the idea.

You need to go to a tattoo artist that is experienced tattooing over scars - it requires a different touch because of the texture of scar tissue. Placement of the design will be extremely important if you're looking to try to conceal it.

If you aren't watching, you should check out shows like Ink Master and Tattoo Nightmares currently on Spike TV on Tuesday nights (I think the episodes are online as well) to get a better of idea of the range of talent you might be facing when choosing an artist and what kind of artist you will want to go to based on the style of your design (eg. someone specializing in cover-ups, realism, black and white etc). You will also want to look closely at their portfolio and do a bit of research (a lot of which you can do online). Miami is stacked with good tattoo artists. eg. This girl was a finalist on two seasons of Ink Master and I love her stuff (based in Florida). From what I saw on the shows, she does great floral designs too.

Topic Clothes smelling sweet
Posted 27 Aug 2014 05:44

Have you ever tried Downy 'Unstopables'? They are amazing... basically they're little super-scented pellets you add to your wash (just sprinkle them directly into your wash). They leave clothes smelling fantastic - long after they're hanging in your closet. And you can use them on clothes that you can't use fabric softeners on (eg. fleece). I'm all about fresh scented laundry. I even have a few perfumes (from the CLEAN line) that mimic this scent.

The turquoise coloured one in "Fresh" is my favourite. Highly recommended. :)

I've experimented with different scented detergents and fabric softeners as well, with mixed success (even high-end brand Caldrea was a huge disappointment) but nothing holds 'scent' better than the Downy Unstopables. Other brands have recently come out with similar scent-boosters as well, but I haven't tried them yet... I'm kind of hooked on the 'Fresh' scent.

Topic Favourite Fashion Era
Posted 13 Aug 2014 07:31

The 60's... there's so much to choose from that I like from both the early and latter part of the decade - the oversized sunglasses, ballet flats and cigarette pants, off-the-shoulder, baby-dolls, short shorts, tie-dye, hippie-chic/boho, Pucci prints, cool boots, Hepburn and Bardot. There was that little revival that I got to live through in the mid 2000's where Kate Moss and Sienna Miller were the boho IT girls of fashion and I was all over it. Love that style - takes me right back to first year uni. I still try to incorporate some updated (but subtle) vintage touches and influences where I can, and nothing wrong with festival-chic when the occasion calls for it, but I've mostly reined it in.

Topic Smitten with a young woman and she's probably not interested. Advice?
Posted 09 Aug 2014 05:28

I think you kind of answered your own question in your first post. She did a breezy "hey, if you're ever in my town, I'll show you around", which is how people typically leave things on vacation, while not actually meaning it if this were ever to come to fruition, and then basically put you on ignore as you sent her messages on social media and commented on her pics. She's just not interested. Whether that's because she's just not into you, or that she doesn't do long-distance, or she already has something going on at home (ie. boyfriend), it's hard to say. I would definitely leave it alone though.

Thing is - on vacation, we meet tons of different people and have different levels of interaction with them. Being friendly on vacation is not the same as being friendly at home in your own city/bar/social-scene. You mention she was in your 'group' - if that meant your tour group or it was a Contiki thing, then it practically requires you to be friendly and chill with everyone. Even on resorts - it's a bit of a cooked situation - you talk to everyone, you're friendlier than normal with total strangers because you have something in common - you're tourists, foreigners, you're in vacay-mode etc. You have to take it all with a grain of salt that they're just being 'vacation-friendly' - not 'I-want-to-date-you'-friendly.

I think you already put yourself out there, she was polite in return, but now she's no longer responding and she's likely already moved on - so I think you should too. Sorry, I know that's not the answer you wanted to hear, but you can't push something like this. If she was into you, she would have kept the convo going on social media. There's nothing you can do from across the country that's going to suddenly wow her into a long-distance relationship and honestly I think the more you keep at it, without any encouragement from her, the more off-putting it's going to be.

I have had this happen before. Usually I jot down notes, maybe create a sketch, sometimes I'll even write up to 1500 words if it's in my head and I need to get it out. Sometimes there's something that inspired it - photos, song lyrics, something I saw. I'll save everything I have related to that new story concept into a folder with a working title and it goes to bed for a while until I can find the time to return to it. Several of my most popular stories started out as a lonely folder on my desktop that I revisited several months to a year later.

Oh, and I really liked the revamped Beyonce number in the trailer - "Crazy in Love" sounds uber slick and sexy now.x

I like the track too.

I haven't read the books but because I know it started as Twilight fan-fic, I can't help but make the mental comparisons - especially in the opening scenes of the trailer - awkward, fidgety girl meets and becomes the obsession of brooding, power-male with perpetual slightly constipated expressions. Still, if it worked the first time, no doubt it can work again.

I would maybe watch it for free on Netflix or the movie network - but probably wouldn't go out of my way for it.

Topic Assisted Suicide - What's your view?
Posted 28 Jul 2014 04:56




OK, Now what if something goes wrong ? Just like these last two botched lethal injections that took place in prisons recently?.

Can you imagine what your family members would be going thru if that happened to you? in a clinical setting of all places.




To be fair, the reason death penalty executions have been botched recently is because there is an ongoing shortage of lethal injection drugs because the companies that produce them are against these drugs being used for death penalty cases or don't want to be associated with them. For example. the European Union announced an export ban on sodium thiopental, in pursuit of its official goal of "universal abolition" of the death penalty several years ago with trade/imports of it being banned. The last US supplier stopped making it in 2011.

It's forced states that carry out executions to experiment with new combinations of drugs that weren't specifically intended for that protocol, or they are using compounding pharmacies (with no govt regulation) that lack the necessary supplies to replicate them properly. Without rigorous testing, these 'cocktails' are basically left up to guesswork, which can lead to botched executions.

Topic Assisted Suicide - What's your view?
Posted 27 Jul 2014 17:23

I believe in self-determination and free will and compassion. It should not be up to us, family, religion or doctors to decide when someone chooses to opt out - it is their life, their suffering, their choice.

When someone is making a lucid choice (of sound mind), they should be given that right and the assistance available to die with dignity and peace.

A few months ago, I read this letter written by a well-known Toronto criminal lawyer with incurable ALS making a posthumous plea for assisted suicide after travelling to Switzerland for help ending his life. In a three-page letter, Edward Hung gives a harrowing account of his final few months while calling on Parliament to change Canada’s “unjust” laws against assisted suicide. It's a powerful read and may help shed some light on what a person in this position actually goes through. It's not some casual or emotional decision - it can be an intelligent and well-thought out choice. Link

I have watched loved ones die - painfully, slowly, through wilful starvation/dehydration in a hospital (how this is considered the more civilized or compassionate option, I'll never know), I've read the stats of seniors in nursing homes choosing this method as well, and then there are other heartbreaking stories of those who have been forced to choose their own methods that are often far more messy and less humane. If you know the end is near and inevitable, why force people to endure the torture of living if they feel it's beyond what they can cope with while maintaining any small semblance of quality of life. Again, it's not 'euthanasia for all' - it's just about knowing someone has that option if they felt they needed to make that choice.


Topic Why are civilians being killed in Gaza?
Posted 25 Jul 2014 09:25

I think they will go for the temporary humanitarian ceasefire for a week and see if they can iron out some commitments to changing the current state of affairs - if that's even possible.

The way Hamas sees it, if the ceasefire happens without negotiations (or *real* commitment to them), then the international heat goes away, blood was spilled for nothing, and the status quo is resumed, except now with the siege and sanctions intensified. The poison continues to bubble for another couple of years until the next inevitable explosion.

Article Link ]

In Qatar Thursday, Hamas political leader Khaled Meshaal said his organization was prepared to sign a truce provided Israel’s siege of Gaza is lifted. Since 2007, when Hamas took control of Gaza from the Palestinian Authority of Mahmoud Abbas, Israel has restricted movement of all people and goods in and out of almost every access point. Egypt controls the other one.

“We seek full international commitment to the end of the aggression and the siege over Gaza – real commitment,” Mr. Meshaal told reporters.

“We want an international airport, we want a seaport, we want an opening to the outside world, and not the situation where we are controlled by a few border crossings that turn Gaza into a huge prison, where no one can leave even for medical treatment or to work.

“When we get a clearly worded drafting that guarantees these things, and the international community gives its backing to this draft – than the fire can be stopped, even today.”

Israel has rejected any kind of accommodation with Hamas.



I don't know what kind of solution they would be able to negotiate that would appease both sides and make both feel secure about follow-through and safety, but the conditions in Gaza (even outside of the violence) is wrong. Gaza, in its current 'prison state' cannot exist the way it has indefinitely. Nor can the mutual rocket fire and attacks on civilians of Israel and Gaza. Sadly it's hard for either side to trust the other at this point.

Topic Why are civilians being killed in Gaza?
Posted 23 Jul 2014 19:40

Currently, the UN Human Rights Council is launching an independent enquiry into the violence in Gaza. There is even discussion of war crimes. My sadness is for the human lives lost - mostly civilian on the Palestinian side - and currently it's upward of 700. I don't care what country suffered the losses - it's a tragedy and nobody should feel 'casual' about it. This isn't military - they didn't sign up for this.

The immediate concern is that it's gone from "defensive" to "offensive" with a disproportionate response - at least 'disproportionate' is the keyword I'm hearing everyone lobbying about. When criminals take human hostages, we don't just shrug it off and say "oh well, they're just human shields, not my fault," and continue to shoot right through them, hoping to get at the bad guys.

I am also sad when I hear people saying it's about taking one side or another in a black and white way. Even celebs who have used the "#prayforGaza" tag on social media have been bullied and attacked - interpreting it as meaning they are 'against Israel' or even anti-semite. I think people are against the senseless killing of this many civilians - women and children - who both sides have acknowledged are trapped with nowhere to go, so 'warnings' are irrelevant. It's about the human side - not the politics.

It's also unfortunate that with the bloodshed, it is probably only creates more fire to push would-be terrorists past the tipping point. Certainly not the intention, but it's often a by-product in situations like this.

A tragedy all around. I hope a ceasefire is imminent.

UN.Org ]

23 July 2014 – The United Nations Human Rights Council today decided to launch an independent inquiry into purported violations of international humanitarian and human rights laws in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem.

Meeting in an emergency session today, the Council adopted a resolution agreeing to send the investigative team by a vote of 29 countries in favour, with 17 abstentions and a sole negative vote by the United States, in which it strongly condemned the failure of Israel to end its prolonged occupation of the area.

The Council condemned in the strongest terms the “widespread, systematic and gross violations of international human rights and fundamental freedoms” arising from the Israeli military operations since 13 June, and called for an immediate ceasefire.

“The Council further condemned all violence against civilians wherever it occurred, including the killing of two Israeli civilians as a result of rocket fire,” according to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

Topic Why are civilians being killed in Gaza?
Posted 23 Jul 2014 14:36

I 100% agree with Elit.

The international outcry can be seen on social media as well, but if watching general US news coverage you will get a slanted story because of the long-time unconditional support of Israel. So it's more "they have the right to protect themselves" vs the shocking civilian casualties and perils of actually being in Gaza.

For me - human is human - and there's no credible way to spin what is happening as 'acceptable'.

This is an interesting article and a sobering reflection on what Palestinians face.

News Article ]

GAZA CITY — As civilian casualties mounted on Monday in the Israeli ground invasion of the Gaza Strip, Israel’s military reminded the world that it had warned people living in targeted areas to leave. The response from Palestinians here was unanimous: Where should we go?

United Nations shelters are already brimming, and some Palestinians fear they are not safe; one shelter was bombed by Israel in a previous conflict. Many Gaza residents have sought refuge with relatives, but with large extended families commonly consisting of dozens of relatives, many homes in the shrinking areas considered safe are already packed.

Perhaps most important, the vast majority of Gazans cannot leave Gaza. They live under restrictions that make this narrow coastal strip, which the United Nations considers occupied by Israel, unlike anywhere else.

Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain in 2010 called Gaza “an open-air prison,” drawing criticism from Israel. But in reality, the vast majority of Gazans are effectively trapped, unable to seek refugee status across an international border. (Most are already refugees, those who fled from what is now Israel and their descendants.)

A 25-mile-long rectangle just a few miles wide, and one of the most densely populated places in the world, Gaza is surrounded by concrete walls and fences along its northern and eastern boundaries with Israel and its southern border with Egypt.

Even in what pass for ordinary times here, Israel permits very few Gazans to enter its territory, citing security concerns because suicide bombers and other militants from Gaza have killed Israeli civilians. The restrictions over the years have cost Palestinians jobs, scholarships and travel.

Egypt has also severely curtailed Gazans’ ability to travel, opening its border crossing with the territory for only 17 days this year. During the current fighting between Israel and the Hamas militants who control Gaza, only those with Egyptian or foreign passports or special permission were allowed to exit.

Even the Mediterranean Sea to the west provides no escape. Israel restricts boats from Gaza to three nautical miles offshore. And Gaza, its airspace controlled by Israel, has no airport.

So while three million Syrians have fled their country during the war there, more and more of Gaza’s 1.7 million people have been moving away from the edges of the strip and crowding into the already-packed center of Gaza City.

... continued.

Topic Sunblocks - which one?
Posted 21 Jul 2014 15:42

I use Kiehl's Sunblock on my face - specifically this one: "Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50".

http://upload.lushstories.com/1377792229-KiehlsSunscreen.jpg

Here's the description:

Prevents 90% of skin aging. Oil-free & lightweight facial sunscreen.
Shake-shake away 90% of skin aging with this oil-free, lightweight facial sunscreen. Provides long lasting protection against damaging UVA and UVB rays, which can cause again, dark spots, freckles and skin darkening. Water-resistant and recommended for daily use after your moisturizer or under make-up application.


I can vouch for the fact that this is the MOST lightweight and non-greasy thing I've ever used... to the point that when you first try it, you'll be shocked that it's actually working because it doesn't feel anything like a regular 'cream', 'moisturizer' or 'sunscreen' - it's almost like liquid silk and it disappears into the skin almost immediately. If you use a moisturizer already, you can wear this on-top of it and not worry that it's going to make your face oily - and if you're out in public on on the beach, you can put this on and know that's soaked right in without adding any shine.

I've used the Neutrogena SP-60 Daily Facial Sunscreen as well. It's not bad - but Kiehl's is definitely much more lightweight and non-greasy - it depends on how much that matters to you and how much you think you'll be using it. Like Neutrogena would be fine for the beach but if you're at work, on a patio or a nice event or somewhere where you're wearing make-up etc and concerned about looking shiny, I would opt for Kiehl's.

I've also used a sunblock facial stick (Ombrelle and just regular 'Life' drugstore brand versions). They often recommend these for kids because they're easy to apply, but I like them too - especially for areas where you just want to spot-treat or for extra coverage (eg. the nose). They're easy to apply and basically like a big 'chapstick' for the face - the only negatives is that it's heavier on the skin and you can definitely feel it on - so I wouldn't use it as an all-over but some parts of my face burn/tan faster than others, so I like keeping it in my bag just for a quick swipe, especially if you're in the water or being active. I feel like it gives that extra level of coverage.

Topic Teeth Whitening
Posted 17 Jul 2014 04:54



Ah, you just reminded me that I should perform the procedure more often.

For some reason I thought that only one session would make a significant difference; I guess my teeth were already fairly decent. I eat mostly only healthy food (ie. non-sugary) and switched from coffee to tea in the last few months, so my teeth aren't really exposed to staining agents.

Anyway, I used it 3-4 times the first week I received the kit and it did make a difference, just not really a jaw-dropping one. It does what it's supposed to though, it's in fact the exact same product that dentists use. The concentration is fairly high too (35%), I don't think that even dentists are allowed to use a higher concentration. The quality is great too: the molds are fairly flexible/comfortable, the paste is easy to spread in the molds (ie. the syringes let you apply only a small amount at a time without any mess), etc. I received the package only about a week after I placed my order too.

I performed the procedure every other day, not to damage my gums or anything. It didn't really hurt when I used it (I left the molds in my mouth for 30-45 min), though I could definitely feel a little burning sensation on my gums near the end of the session. My teeth were also a little sensitive afterward, but that's normal.

Only a small amount of paste is required for each application, so the kit can last for quite a while. My 3-4 sessions only used 5-10% of the product or so. The blue LED is supposed to accelerate the process, though it's considered a gimmick by some; I'm not sure if I'll keep using it in the future. The kit also comes with a remineralization paste, to use when you've achieved the desired shade; I'll perform a few more sessions before using it myself.

Overall it's a great product, especially for the price: it does what it's supposed to and plenty of product is provided to achieve the desired whitening. It's just not a 'miracle product' as I expected, but then again it's still probably the most effective method to whiten teeth. I don't really want my teeth to glow in the dark either anyway.



Thanks for this review - I might have to give it a try.

It's been on my mind because I got a handful of free samples of Crest White Strips (Professional Effects), their 3-D whitening toothpaste and mouthwash recently. I like all three products but admit I don't like the idea of the strips not offering full-coverage for all my teeth... even though when you smile you only see the front ones, it seems weird to not have your entire mouthful of teeth being the same colour. They're good for maybe random fresh-ups, but I think I'll go back to the tray-method. Their 3-D toothpaste and mouthwash are pretty awesome though - I was pleasantly surprised.

Topic Eating for blood type diet.

You are exactly like me!

I too fall into that accursed A- blood type. A definite real pain in medical emergencies. The blood donors also hound you like crazy.

And yea. I'm the same way with alcohol. I don't 'love' it though. It's nice and all, but I could live without it.

I get brutal handovers as well. My friends laugh, but no joke, when I get really drunk, I don't recover well. I literally get 24 hour hangovers if I'm not careful. No joke.

Man. A type diet sucks....

High-five! Nice to see some solid represent of A- blood type here! hah

And I hear you on the hangovers and the 24 hrs in bed recovery. It was something that frustrated me only because I could never keep up with friends during college days, vacations etc. I could drink less than them and still have a rough go of it the next day, whereas they seemed tired but still totally functional and ready to go again. This is partly why I began to veer toward different partying-options at one point so I didn't have to deal with hangovers.
