Let's Close the Gap!!

Blog post by Tina Winterlik © 2013!/zipolita @zipolita Google+

Many countries are doing a much better job at protecting themselves than we are. I hope that we can work together and create a Canada we want to live in and can raise healthy children.

From Youtube: Canadians don't have the right to breathe clean air, drink clean water, or live in healthy communities. In over 100 countries these rights are protected by law, but not in Canada.

It doesn't need to be this way. Join us and take action now:

David Boyd is one of Canada's leading environmental lawyers, an adjunct professor at Simon Fraser University, formerly the Executive Director of the Sierra Legal Defence Fund (now Ecojustice), and a recent Trudeau Scholar at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability at the University of British Columbia.

Fort McMoney - I didn't know??

Blog post by Tina Winterlik © 2013!/zipolita @zipolita Google+

So I finally got to see Fort McMoney today and wow, it looks interesting. 

Wish I had more time to watch but I have homework.

Heard some interesting perspective from real people. I didn't know it was like that...I never thought to much about it.  :(

Sad! I'm saying a prayer for everyone there.

But it will be interesting to see how this interactive documentary turns out. Who else will adapt this idea to their town. What world issues could be solved by similar experiments. Could great things be learned and come out of this project.

Time will tell.

Fort McMoney
Fort McMoney looks like a documentary, plays out like a video game, and pushes the boundaries of both. Produced by the National Film Board and the Montreal-based game developer TOXA, the game lets people explore a virtual version of Fort McMurray, Alberta, the face of Canada's oil industry.

Info Overload is more about Filtering- Check it Out!!

Wow, listen to this great talk by Clay Shirky and how information overload has been around since the 1500's but it's how the filters work that mess us up.

Then check out the video below because there's some interesting info shared about the education system and how the information systems are colliding in a serious way and someone needs to figure out how to solve it.
