Backyard curling ice becomes rink of dreams for Calgary man

Waite, who curls with two leagues and whose children, Tommy, 10 and Eilidh, 8, both curl with the Huntington Hills Junior Curling Association, decided it was time to stop thinking about it and make it happen.

thought, do this in honour of my dad because he loved curling, said Waite.

Ed Waite, who, a few months ago built a skating rink for his kids in the family Thorncliffe backyard, had long been toying with the idea of hosting a bonspiel.

was a little emotional for all of us, but it something he would have loved to have been a part of. said the tournament was a resounding success, with entry fees from teams contributing to a $500 donation that Women Canada Goose Expedition Parka Pink Sale Ireland will now be made to the Huntington Hills Junior Curling Association.

The tournament, which would eventually see 40 people on 10 teams compete throughout the day on Saturday, was dedicated to the memory of Waite father, John, a curler who died of cancer 10 years ago this spring.

Two generations of an avid curling family found a special way to honour a third over the weekend.

So he converted the backyard ice to a curling rink, roughly half the length of a regulation sized one, embedding rings and even the names of a handful of sponsors that he rounded up.

Avoid these five practices to be better at business

2. Operating in a vacuum. Take opportunities to network with others at local events and impromptu meetings. A well established base of colleagues can help in unexpected circumstances, and referrals are often at the heart of creating new business. There is no operation too large or too successful to need more allies. Overdoing it. Burnout leads to bad decisions. You may be motivated to work too many hours now, but it will take its toll in the long run. Take time for yourself, even if that time is only an Women Canada Goose Freestyle Vest Berry Ireland Sale afternoon. Those pockets of time will be to your advantage down the line when the novelty of the business wears off.

4. Tardiness. Notwithstanding unknown and unpreventable factors, arriving late to a meeting or appointment connotes one thing: that you either lack the self discipline to arrive on time or that you don't care. Either way, it speaks volumes about your character. Reliability is paramount to building strong business relationships.

In the Navy, we hosted after action reviews as a means to improve overall awareness and build organizational learning. The objective was to compare what we planned to do with what actually happened and then identify what caused the change. Without taking the time to reflect upon the past, there will be limited mobility to act in the future.

1. Sending e mails too quickly. You will inevitably have conversations where you disagree with vendors, customers or competitors. If the back and forth is happening in e mail, let the message sit in your drafts folder for an hour or more while your emotions simmer down. Then, go back and edit. Reread for professionalism, and make sure that your point is getting across without being accusatory or derogative.

Business is no different. To gather entrepreneurial lessons, I spoke with Tabitha Naylor, founder of Successful Startup 101, an online magazine that provides a wealth of startup tips and advice. Here are five practices she avoids:

5. Reply all. This is perhaps one of the most overused buttons in e mail. While shared awareness is absolutely critical to organizational communication (and alignment, for that matter), sending a mass e mail to everyone adds unnecessary clutter for people who simply don't need to be involved. Before automatic reflex takes over and you hit that "reply all" button, be sure you're sending the right information to the right people.

Without failure, there is no learning. Few people return home at night to say, "Wow, I was awesome today! How can I fix that?" Instead, reflection and renewal come from the trials and tribulations associated with negative emotions such as fear, doubt, embarrassment or humility, and such emotional baggage serves as the deciding factor as to press on and keep trying or give up all together.

Stay tuned for part 2, where I look at a bee strain that fights varroa mites head on.

2. Mao, W., Schuler, M. A., Berenbaum, M. R. Honey constituents up regulate detoxification and immunity genes in the western honey bee Apis mellifera. PNAS. Published online April 29, 2013.

This latest study goes a step further by identifying the compound responsible. They separated components of honey extracts using chromatography (HPLC for the chemistry savvy) and seeded sugar candies with the purified compounds. Then they looked to see if expression of P450s and other genes was altered in workers fed the candy.

Conventional wisdom is that honey is better for bee health than feeding with sucrose or high fructose corn syrup, which are currently widespread practices (including by me). This feeding is necessary to support young or weak hives. However, some beekeepers feed with honey from stronger hives, rather than using substitutes. If those hives are less prone to collapse, it would support a model of induction of honey bee defense by honey phytochemicals.

Honey bees have been in the news a lot lately, and unfortunately most of it hasn't been good. Colony collapse disorder, or CCD, is a phenomenon where beehives are mysteriously found empty. This has made understanding the cause of CCD challenging, on top of the growing consensus that CCD probably arises from a multitude of risk factors1.

The notable absence of CCD in Australia, which has the same species of honey bee as in Europe and the Americas (no coincidence, since the Europeans colonizing the two continents brought bees with them) suggests that varroa mites might have an important role in CCD. It also raises doubts about the pesticide dominant model that has been posited by some3.

Canada Goose Freestyle Vest Outlet Ireland

Oddly enough, bees appear to start out handicapped in the fight against pathogens, as far as insects go. While most insects have around 80 cytochrome P450 genes, encoding a family of proteins responsible for neutralizing foreign substances (these are why drugs wear off!), honey bees have only a modest 46.

Ultimately the study identified the phytochemical coumaric acid as a strong inducer of CYP9Q3 and four members of the CYP6AS family of P450s. It also induced higher levels of expression of a number of other honey bee genes with antimicrobial or drug neutralizing functions.

P450s are also responsible for breaking down phytochemicals (plant made chemicals), and not surprisingly honey is full of them. What's more, we already know that honey induces the expression of two P450 gene families: CYP6AS and CYP9Q.

Honey is so integral to the life of a honey bee, yet we don't understand very much about how eating honey affects bees. A recent study by a group at the University of Illinois makes a stab at understanding how components of honey can directly affect gene expression of worker bees, in particular genes that aid in defense against pathogens and pesticides2.

Canada Goose Freestyle Vest Outlet Ireland

Understanding how honey bees respond to pathogen and pesticide exposures could point to breeding or therapeutic strategies to combat CCD.

There is a lot of focus on the varroa mite, appropriately Canada Goose Freestyle Vest Outlet Ireland named Varroa destructor, which latches onto honey bee adults, pupae, and larvae, feeding off their hemolymph and in the process acting as a vector for disease. The mite has invaded Europe, the Americas, and Asia, but not Africa or Australia. In the southern United States, where I keep bees, varroa mites are in every beehive.

Bee Diet and Defense Against Pathogens

When beekeepers finish a honey extraction, the honey centrifuge, buckets, and various tools are all coated with a layer of honey. As you can imagine, cleaning honey from the nooks and crannies of oddly shaped machinery is a nightmare. But lucky for us, bees love honey. They love it so much that if you leave the equipment outside for several hours, bees in the surrounding area will do the cleaning for you.

A popular model for CCD is that many stressors, while individually insufficient to cause colonies to collapse, in combination are too much for the bees to handle. The list of potential culprits includes microbes, pesticides, parasites, and beekeeping practices like transporting bees over large distances.

1. Broder, J. M. "Study finds no single cause of honeybee deaths." The New York Times. May 2, 2013.

Intro: The state of the honey bee

As both a beekeeper and biology student, I care a lot about CCD. I keep bees as a hobby with a group of students at my college, and in the three years I have been beekeeping two of our hives have fallen prey to CCD. (We don't have a very big operation to begin with, ranging from one to four hives at a time, and currently three).

Canada Goose Freestyle Vest Outlet Ireland

Since replacing sugar syrup feed stocks with pure honey is probably not feasible for the large scale beekeepers who make up the bulk of the industry, coumaric acid supplements might capture some of the benefits of honey while remaining practical. It remains to be investigated whether the gene expression changes induced by coumaric acid are actually consequential for bee defense against CCD relevant assaults. If so, a simple nutritional supplement could be a powerful tool in our fight against CCD.

Austin also followed through with his threat to call the league to raise some concerns regarding the officiating.

different stages of my career, I could be a lead by example guy or if I need to get on somebody, I can get on somebody, Collaros said. think my teammates respect me enough and know that I put in the work so if I needed to, I could do that.

Austin says leadership not part of the Ticats' problems

The average age of the Ticats roster is a league low 26.5 years and the team allowed several veteran players to depart last off season. Quarterback Henry Burris, receiver Dave Stala and linebacker Jamall Johnson were allowed to leave via free agency and centre Marwan Hage was exposed in the expansion draft. But Austin says the loss of a collective 46 seasons of CFL experience hasn adversely affected his squad.

While he acknowledges there have been challenges in shepherding the CFL youngest team, Ticat head coach Kent Austin says a lack of leadership isn one of them.

don know if we really hit a time in a game when the crap hits the fan where we really need somebody to be vocal. I think I can be vocal, I think Andy (Fantuz) is vocal sometimes, Bakari (Grant) is vocal sometimes, Collaros said. think people look at leadership and think of Ray Lewis, the rah kind of stuff. But I think real leaders are made during the week with your preparation and things like that.

be careful about anointing some of Women Canada Goose Montebello Parka Pink Sale Ireland the guys that have left as leaders.

One of the players thrust into a leadership role this season is 26 year old quarterback Zach Collaros, who was signed in February to replace the 39 year old Burris. While he acknowledges the position comes with some inherent responsibilities, Collaros says there a number of players on offence who can speak up.

Notes: Among the three additions to the Ticats 46 man roster ahead of Sunday game was receiver Terell Sinkfield, who will replace Cary Koch as the team primary kick returner. a great athlete, he has explosive speed but he also a guy that can change direction, Austin said of Sinkfield. has big play potential. added to the roster: defensive end Eric Norwood and Canadian defensive tackle Linden Gaydosh. Joining Koch on the one game injured list were defensive Antonio Coleman and Canadian linebacker Beau Landry.

has its pluses and its minuses, we understand that, he said. we building this team to have sustainability in its talent level and its competitiveness over many years, not just right now.

At 2 7, the 2014 edition of the Ticats has not met the inevitable expectations that followed last year run to the Grey Cup. But Austin said there are long term goals to consider as well.

Women Canada Goose Montebello Parka Pink Sale Ireland

Coming to a new team and being anointed a starter for the first time in his pro career, Collaros said there was an acclimatization period that he likened to the first day of school. As he become more comfortable and played more after missing six games with a concussion Collaros says it been easier to speak up.

bet I did. I keep that internal, but it been taken up with the league, he said.

Inexperience may also be part of the explanation for the Ticats penchant for taking penalties as they lead the league in both the number infractions and yards per game. But Austin says after reviewing the film from last Sunday 38 31 loss to Montreal in which the team was penalized 13 times for 80 yards he had a different perspective.

was a change in one my messages in that I probably overemphasized the discipline and I apologized to the team. I pointed out several plays where, after watching the film, I told those individual players playing exactly that way. Austin said. offsides with receivers has been dealt with. The illegal procedure by our young offensive lineman has been addressed. But some of the other plays I told them not to change anything they were doing.

think we have really good young players who will be outstanding leaders. Leadership has nothing to do with your age. Experience on its own, isn necessarily a positive, Austin said Saturday, a day before the Ticats took on the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

"Our hope, our goal, with every animal, is to get them released back into the wild in the best possible health," said Tom Millham, who runs Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care with his wife, Cheryl, and a team of volunteers.

Wildlife officials in Washington state sent the bear to Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care because of its experience treating animals with burns.

Aside from the record 11 black bears that are in for treatment, Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care is also treating a Canada goose, a dozen raccoons, three red tail hawks, two great horned owls and some other animals it doesn't see many of, including a flying squirrel, yellow bellied marmot and spotted skunk.

Bears keep coming to Tahoe Wildlife Care center

The nonprofit wildlife rehabilitation center in South Lake Tahoe accepted a 10th black bear for treatment Monday, a yearling injured in a wildfire near Wenatchee, Wash. Then on Tuesday it took in an 11th bear, a cub brought in from Paradise, Calif.

"Cinder" weighed about 39 pounds when brought to Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care. The bear has extensive burns to its paws, legs and face. Veterinarian Kevin Willitts examined the bear Monday morning to prepare a treatment plan for the animal.

Seattle based pilot Bill Inman flew the yearling black bear nicknamed "Cinder" in a one seat plane to South Lake Tahoe from Wenatchee after the bear was injured in a wildfire.

The bear brought in from Paradise on Tuesday is the third cub brought in from that area this year, Millham said. The animal is believed to be related to the other two cubs.

Things just keep getting busier at Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care this summer.

In 2008, Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care treated a bear cub nicknamed "Li'l Smokey" that was injured in a wildfire near Redding. The bear's badly burned paws healed after several months and the animal was successfully released back into the wild in Feb., 2009.

It's been a busy year for the nonprofit wildlife rehabilitation center, which wants to move forward next year with a relocation and expansion to a 27 acre parcel near the corner of Al Tahoe Boulevard and Pioneer Trail in South Lake Tahoe. The group is trying to raise funding for a second phase of that project as well as money to treat the bears, which can cost as much as $100 per week Canada Goose Children Ireland Sale each to feed.

Once a location has been added, users can edit the listing by clicking the name on the list, then clicking the pencil in the box that pops up on the map. Heard encourages Canadians to add tips, comments and stories.

Health Canada reminds parents that wearing a helmet can prevent head and brain injuries. The organization recommends children wear a Women Canada Goose Kensington Parka White Dublin helmet that fits and is secured properly.

The Canadian Institute for Health Information says while tobogganing doesn't result in as nearly as many injuries as skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiling, children can still be seriously injured in sledding accidents. In the winter of 2010 2011, for example, there were 171 hospitalizations from tobogganing crashes, and about a third of them involved kids under the age of 10.
