A Touching Remembrance.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row...

Year by year Canadians prove that the sacrifices of their veterans are not forgotten.

This year, I found quite touching the Remembrance Day interview and the soldier's poem read by Sgt. Lloyd Donohue of Kitchener.

It is the gravity and not the Dark Matter.

Some of the Perimeter Institute cosmologists think that the dark matter doesn't exist. This is quite a bold statement that is backed by a theory though.

In John Moffat and Joel Brownstein's opinion it is the gravity and not the dark matter that keeps the galaxies together. It is not the gravity we know it but a modified one defined by their Modified Gravity theory (MOG).

Raising knowledge barns in Waterloo Region.

Everything is in place: the tradition, inspiration, vision, spirit, design, foundation, measurement scale, people and enthusiasm.

Just let the time do the work of making the Waterloo Region the knowledge capital of Canada.

One year since the launch of this noble goal is a good time to look back and see if the Waterloo Region is on course.

Let the knowledge barns raising begin!

Yours truly, in The Record.

Ok, some people complained that the vital signs photos published in the Waterloo Region's Vital Signs Report, are too small. Well, it looks like the local newspaper The Record (partner in the Vital Signs initiative) decided to shed more light on those pictures by dedicating them a whole newspaper page. Check them out, if curious, on page E8 in the October 20th issue of The Record.

Thank you Vital Signs and The Record!
