There's an interesting link in that article re. the effect of pomegranate juice on testosterone in men and women.

Look at it this way, though, he can't vote.

I haven't gone back too far into this thread, but did anyone else notice that Tony Martin was defeated?  I just found that out yesterday, I was shocked, but also surprised that it didn't receive more coverage.

 8)  Thanks for checking it out.  I changed the comments so that anyone can post after I got a few people saying they couldn't.  Sorry I didn't answer your question Toe.  I of course realize that in order for the thing to be of any merit, I'll have to be conscientious about updating, we'll see how that goes.

So yeah after about a 5 year absence I've started blogging again:
Going to do some liveblogging of the election tonight, much of it in caps lock.  I decided this is more considerate than jamming up everyone's facebook feed with the constant flow of election commentary that I normally do.

Why did you miss the best part of the city, RP? ;-) Once you've driven down from Fort Mac, surely a river crossing isn't that much more?

I had all intentions of even going and volunteering, but I was too exhausted.  I spent all my time between the Brownlee bldg, the Law Courts and the hotel.

I love that.  8)
kuri, when I was in Edmonton this week, I didn't get into Edmonton--Strathcona, but I saw lawnsigns o' plenty for Ray Martin and Lewis Cardinal, vastly more than for any other candidate.  Do you think things bode well for them?  I would seriously lose my shit if the orange blob grew 300%.   8)

This obviously never happened, because as we all know, long gun owners never use their weapons to commit crimes or harm anyone.

I get the feeling that Fort McMurray is really atypical.  Certainly the apathy is high, turnout low.  I think that a sense of resignation prevails.  Our MLA switched to the Wild Rose, so I don't know if the inertia will work out in favour of the man or his former party.

An unemployed, middle-aged woman from the Mauricie region of Québec has become an instant star via media exposure and social media input. Of course what 53-year-old job-seeker Muguette Paillé wants is a job, in her region.

Oh dear, some are complaining her to Joe the Plumber. Cripes, Mme Paillé isn't a demagogue; she just wants a job.

Reminds me of Angela Vautour.

Anti-Alberta bigotry is everywhere among smart-mouthed young "liberal" wonks, and I'd like to take them all to the woodshed over it. I hate cliches and stereotypes anyway -- do Holly Stick or I strike anyone as Harper clones?

E.May looking rough, spent.  I feel badly for her, this is obviously taking a lot out of her.

That's like complaining that someone can bump the week of their vacation, but cannot bring ME along!

We need a "like" button.

Also, in a turnabout the feds now won't modify RCMP rules about disclosure of evidence to the defense but that's ONLY because they were discovered to be total liars and hypocrites.

Finally read it. I suspect the smarter ppl in the department explained to Nicholson  that modifying the disclosure rules would never fly with the courts, as, of course, it shouldn't.

I don't know about the paperwork. Why do they have so much paperwork? I'm tempted to take that claim srsly only because an assoc of defence lawyers agrees it's a problem, so maybe. But on issues like this, I would always line up behind the CCLA. Defence counsel have to have all the evidence prosecution is bringing forward before things proceed.

Maybe the prosecutors aren't being very good editors? That's a possibility. I thought that disclosure covered only what was being brought forward at trial, not absolutely everything the police had done.

We need a lawyer here. pookie? You out there?

pookie would be the expert, but I can say that the Crown has to disclose everything which is relevant to someone's charge, whether or not the Crown intends to use it at trial (the SCC case dictating this being Stinchcombe).  This has even been expanded to include whether or not the police involved have been subject to findings of serious misconduct (McNeil).  Disclosure is a good thing, it helps settle things one way or the other.  That doesn't mean that disclosure demands, or what we call O'Connor applications (to get information from a 3rd party, outside of the control of the Crown), looking for things that are not relevant, aren't a pain in the ass.
