It's almost as though the world's atheists want their opinions acknowledged or something. After news broke a week and a half ago that a group called the Freethought Association of Canada was planning to bring bus ads to Toronto that read "There is probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life," a campaign wholly copied from the godless Brits , those ads are one step closer to turning up on the side of your favourite TTC vehicle. After obliterating their financial goal—they had aimed to raise $7,000 by May but have raised three times that already—the Freethought Association annnounced this morning ...
Bibliophile By the Sea: 29 - The Wayward Bus; John Steinbeck
I'm so glad I finally read The Wayward Bus, as it did not disappoint.  The entire story takes place over a two day period in post WWII (1947). A group of very different people board a bus driven by 50 something, Juan Chicoy, Juan and his wife Alice operate a small luncheonette at Rebels Corners. Juan also is a mechanic, and drives a bus from Rebels Corners to San Juan de la Cruz. Juan is bored with his life and routine, and on this particular trip, heavy rains and an unsafe bridge, has Juan taking an alternate dirt road route. The passengers end up stranded, when the bus becomes stuck in the mud, and Juan tells the ... market research, surveys and trends
Becky's Book Reviews: The Wayward Bus
For my third Steinbeck, I chose The Wayward Bus. This is an interesting--though not particularly charming--story of disgruntled individuals brought together by a seemingly-never-ending bus ride. While the book technically revolves around a bus ride, the focus of the story is more on the waywardness of the people. How each of Steinbeck's characters are unhappy each in their own way. The book examines humanity--up, close, and a bit too personal. Each character is distinct in that they all have their own issues, own back stories, own hopes and dreams. All are on the bus for different reasons. All are on different journeys. But ... market research, surveys and trends

A trademark is a word/ letter, device, or symbol used by one company to distinguish its product from that of another company. Trademarks are also symbols of good will and have value as such. A firm obtains exclusive rights to a trademark by using it to identify its product(s) before another company does. Trademarks can also be registered with the U.S. Patent Office, but only approximately 10 percent of the trademarks in the United States are. A registered trademark can be lost if not used for two years or if used by the public habitually as a general term for all similar products.

The other Berkeley: A world class marina for fisherman
Like most outdoor types, I'll admit to being an opportunist. Whenever I travel, I keep an eye out for an outdoors adventure of some type - usually of the hunting or fishing variety. Such was the case last week when my wife and I flew out to California's Bay Area to drop off my daughter Erin at college - UC Berkeley to be exact. So while Erin embarked upon her college career at the University of California's hallowed halls of learning, I took some time to check out Berkeley's somewhat less hallowed "hulls" of fishing - aka the Berkeley Marina located on the eastern shores of the San Francisco Bay. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Series Link 08.24.10: The Simpsons Season 1
When I started doing Series Link I was never quite sure how long it'd last and it occurs to me that while there are lots of movie franchises I can still tackle there aren't many ones I particularly want to. I'd like to do James Bond although probably over 3 columns. I also have my eye on Psycho and the Hannibal Lecter movies BUT I'm not exactly chomping at the bit to get going with those. So I thought about the possibility of talking about TV shows instead and I looked back at when 411 had a weekly episode of the Simpsons reviewed. When the guy stopped doing it and left the website Ashish asked someone to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
