From Philippines to Canada, “The Dark Side of Social Media”

TORONTO – In a third world country like the Philippines with so many poor people, rumour and gossip seem to be the national pastime. Texting (email) costs only one peso, a mere few cents Canadian.  Even if this is the Philippines, poverty has not stopped citizens from engaging in online chats, Facebook and Twitter. And they feel important for they all have something to say, for after all they are a part of a larger social group.

Mississauga named one of the Top7 Intelligent Communities worldwide

Cities are the engines of economic growth. In a modern society, technology plays a key role in making cities function better, faster and smarter. Tools like network connections, computers, sensors and cameras, can help communities use integrated data to make wiser decisions. A digitally “Smart City” is a benefit to its residents, but an “intelligent community” is one that uses information and technology to drive prosperity, tackle social and economic issues and helps enrich the lives of its inhabitants.

This year, the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) named Mississauga as one of the Top7 Intelligent Communities in the world. (more…)

What Would Happen If We Lost Satellite Communications?

As if we did not have enough on our plates looking over our shoulder for COVID-19, we now had to look up to the sky for a falling rocket. Chicken Little’s pleas of “The Sky is Falling!” – not so funny. The 100 foot Chinese rocket, claimed to pose no risk as it most likely would burn up in our atmosphere upon re-entry, begs to ask the question: Who is responsible for things that go awry in Space? More chilling, what would happen to humankind if we were to lose a vital satellite? (more…)
