It’s a rollercoaster ride across the world

* GOOD ON THE AUSTRALIANS:
Their researchers have produced the first 3D printed jet engine.

 

Their model could result in cheaper, lighter and more fuel efficient aircraft. As an example, the Amero Corporation believes production times for jet engine components could be reduced from 3 months to just 6 days. The components could be flight tested in the next year and certified for commercial use  in 24 to 36 months.
* BAD FOR  INDEPENDENT M. P. SANA HASSAINIA:
The woman from Montreal had the worst attendance record in the House of Commons during 2014. She said she left the NDP party due to their policy relating to Israel. She did get it right that the opposition votes are worth nothing when a majority government can pass what they want anyway.
The NDP's version of her departure is due to her lack of attendance. She appeared for only 16 of 269 votes. Word is she hasn't been in her riding much either. And so the NDP picked yet another perfect candidate for impeachment, if that ever becomes a true reality.
* MAYBE GOOD OR BAD FOR QUEBEC ANGLOS:
Canada's official language commissioner called for an office of anglophone affairs to right the wrongs for the Province's 600,000 Anglo minority. Good luck with that.
The Anglos’ control over public institutions; especially their hospitals and schools, is slowly slipping away. More and more Anglos and immigrants, fed up with the abuse are simply voting with their feet and moving to other provinces. Yet, Quebec continues to expect to have what they consider their rights to their separate culture mandatory. We have trained them to expect that, so I guess we get what we deserve.
* $120 MILLION FROM FOREIGN INVESTORS MUST BE GOOD:
A minimum of $2 million each, invested over 15 years and monitored by BDC Capital, an arm of The Business Development Bank of Canada is good! The funds will be invested in innovative Canadian star-tups with high growth potential. These experienced business people will give Canada a good economic boost and enhance our tax base. The 60 will get permanent resident visas and will be chosen from 500 applicants and should be the best of the lot. After a review of the initial pilot project, more may be accepted.
* 2016 RIO OLYMPICS COMPLETE WITH RAW SEWAGE BAD:
The sailing competitions will face an added challenge of stinking raw sewage, floating used T.Vs, refrigerators and such during their races. Further, Brazil's most respected health research group has found a drug resistant super bacteria on a beach near the competitions.
There is neither the time or the $4 billion cost to sanitize just this small area before the games begin. No mention of negative issues with the rest of the venues. Could be that the bored and wealthy patrons and their wanna-be copy-cats could pay big money to get hit by their own nasty rebound?
* CANADA'S  2015 PAN- AM GAMES ANOTHER EXPENSIVE BAD DEAL:
With 7,666 athletes, 3,000 coaches and officials and 2,300 volunteers hosting a hoped for 1,400,000 spectators, just the security alone started at $250 million or $175 per person.
Like all of these other farces security and venues will climb well beyond the original cooked up estimates. Tax payers throughout Canada will again be asked to cover cost over-runs and huge deficit spending.
Why do we continue to let this happen?
* GOOD THAT SASKATCHEWAN IS THE SECOND MOST ATTRACTIVE PLACE IN THE WORLD TO MINE:
According to a Fraser Institute study, only Finland is ahead of us. We earn our position by providing a stable regulatory regime, stable taxes, royalties and solid land rights and leases. Good geologic databases, security and infrastructure improvements also help.
As China and India continue to grow the demand for our resources will increase as well.
