New Utah State University Study helps cities budget for Water Main Breaks
New data from Utah State University Buried Structures Laboratory quantifies water main breaks by pipe material type, helping towns and cities across Canada and the U.S. predict their costs in the future.

Sand on the Beach

Sand on the Beach
Have you noticed yet?

Sand is In!

Apart from the fact that my friends and I are going on annual trips to the environs of “Sandy Lake” in Ontario, or that all the natural gas/oil “fracking” (causing and keeping open miniscule underground fissures) consumes a lot of fine sand to keep the underground rock fissures open, or its use in producing cement mix than can be troweled into smooth surfaces, or in the playground of your children or grandchildren, sand is one of those natural things that are truly plentiful and—amazing.

EPA’s Pruitt is far cleaner than critics claim

EPA’s Pruitt is far cleaner than critics claim
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has been hounded lately by allegations of rich spending and poor judgment. While he could have detonated himself during recent congressional-oversight hearings, the former Oklahoma prosecutor seems to have survived those tests. Nonetheless, EPA’s inspector general, the Government Accountability Office, and various congressional panels continue to probe Pruitt’s official conduct. While Pruitt has plenty for which to answer, on at least three key counts, he seems to be cleaner than his critics claim.

‘We spy with our little Eye’  A Rat-fink Called Obama

'We spy with our little Eye'  A Rat-fink Called Obama
Tell-tale indeed that the only time former President Barack Hussein Obama used the words, “I spy”, it was to a group of little children at the library.

During the eight long years of his presidency, Obama always played to children, kids in the library, school children and university students.

Uber’s self-driving car killed Arizona woman because auto-brake system had been disabled

Uber’s self-driving car killed Arizona woman because auto-brake system had been disabled
Obvious question: If the auto-brake can be disabled, how can you be sure it’s enabled when you need it to be? Also, if you’d disable it to “prevent erratic driving,” then how can it be said the car can operate viably when the auto-brake is engaged?

Trump kills the North Korea summit—hours after Pyongyang destroys its nuclear tunnels

Trump kills the North Korea summit--hours after Pyongyang destroys its nuclear tunnels
If you read any news this morning, you probably saw that Pyongyang had – allegedly – blown up the tunnels that that made up the bulk of its nuclear testing facility at Punggye-ri. As the BBC reports, the site was destroyed. However, it’s entirely possible that the damage is reversible and may have been caused by a previous collapse.  Remember, this is North Korea we’re dealing with.  You can’t trust anything that comes from the pudgy mouth of glorious leader.

Behind The Smokescreen, The Great Deception

While the UN are condemning Israel for defending itself against terror organization Hamas, the rest of the world has fallen into the Muslim terrorists’ propaganda. Those images speak for themselves. The so-called “Palestinians” has one ambition. To obliterate Israel. Their supporters have the same.

Strange bedfellows devising school curricula

Strange bedfellows devising school curricula
The misconstrued separation of church and state has taken some incoherent twists and turns over the last few years creating the strangest of bedfellows that puts new emphasis on the old adage of “sleeping with the enemy.”

It doesn’t seem to matter which school district is in the limelight when so many are buckling to popular liberal thought that is replacing true science with pseudoscience, invading curricula, especially for elementary and middle school students.

1991 Homicidal Handyman Case: My Jury Tampering Questions Linger

1991 Homicidal Handyman Case: My Jury Tampering Questions Linger
I received a jury summons in the mail last week. Whenever this happens, I stare at it for a few days or weeks, and then try to dream up an exotic excuse why I cannot possibly serve. I’m not trying to get out of my civic duty; I paid my civic debt years ago on a death penalty jury—and I was a casualty of jury tampering.

The Role of the Police in Andrea Horwath’s Sanctuary Province
As the Ontario election campaign enters its final two weeks, the PCs are dropping in support while that of the NDP is increasing. The majority of new support for the socialists comes from Liberal voters realizing the almost certain death of their usual party of choice. Some polls predict the governing Liberals will end up losing official party status.
