Saint John, New Brunswick

Atlantic Snapshots: Princess Street” by Bill Lapp (Spacing Atlantic) - Saint John, New Brunswick.

The Green Gunman” by Jesse Walker (Hit & Run) - This Wednesday, James Lee broke into Discovery Communications’ Maryland headquarters and held three hostages for several hours before being shot dead by police. Why did Lee, who had a history of protesting against the company and its television stations, take such drastic action? Walker offers three possible explanations.

“Middle East peace talks are like dating your ex-girlfriend. Just when you think everything’s back on track, it all ends in heartbreak.” - Mideast peace talks: round infinity” by The Mark Newsroom (The Mark)

The Late Show Heats Up with Bill McKibben” by Ben Jervey (GOOD Blog) - Environmentalist, educator, author, and cofounder of 350.org Bill McKibben appears on The Late Show with David Letterman. (Check out my April interview with McKibben here.)

Have Twenty-Something Single Women Closed the Pay Gap?” by Heather Horn (The Atlantic Wire) - According to consumer research firm Reach Advisors, in 2008, single, childless women between the ages of twenty-two and thirty earned more than men in the same demographic group. Horn questions the meaning of the numbers: “Are they evidence that the pay gap is being closed, that men are falling behind, or that childlessness is more required than ever for a woman to succeed?” (more…)

Video from Shuttle booster falling back to Earth” by Rob Beschizza (Boing Boing) - Skip ahead to 1:50, then sit back and enjoy the ride from the edge of space to splashdown.

For all its problems, the first 10 years of the 21st century were in fact humanity’s finest, a time when more people lived better, longer, more peaceful, and more prosperous lives than ever before.” - From a new Foreign Affairs article by economic development analyst Charles Kenny, spotted by Ronald Bailey at Hit & Run (“Best Decade Ever? Hell, Yeah!”).

Antidepressant has ‘magic’ properties” by Bill Hathaway (Futurity) - A team of researchers from Yale has discovered that ketamine — a.k.a. the party drug Special K — has “magic” properties. Am I the only one who thinks these geniuses could have saved themselves a lot of time and money if they had skipped the science and just asked high school kids for the score?

Sarah Palin tweet

Palin Entreats Dr. Laura to ‘Reload’” by Erik Hayden (The Atlantic Wire)” - Reload what? The racism gun?

Many people do fear change, and it’s often easier to hold onto what you have — even if you know it isn’t working — than to embrace new ideas. But beyond the scientific predictions, it’s getting more difficult every day to deny the very real and immediate impacts of climate change. Environmental damage from climate change is already killing 300,000 people a year, with an economic impact of $125 billion a year.” - David Suzuki and Faisal Moola, “The Environmentalist as Caveman” (The Mark News) (more…)

Vivos Group
Vivos Group

The End-of-the-World Hotel” by Will Wlizlo | UTNE Reader
As we all know, the world is scheduled to end in 2012. Are you ready? The good people at Del Mar, California’s Vivos Group are here to help. For the low price of $50,000 per adult (kids cost half!), you can purchase a spot in a luxury, 200-person underground bunker — then safely ride out the mega-tsunamis and nuclear explosions that are surely coming our way.

Lest we forget Omar Khadr” by Parker Donham | Contrarian
After eight years of incarceration, Omar Khadr — the only citizen of a Western democracy still in detention at Guantanamo Bay — is finally being subjected to the first war crimes prosecution of a child soldier in US military history. (Actually, the military is attempting to try Khadr: his lawyer collapsed on Thursday, and will soon be airlifted from Gitmo for medical treatment. Proceedings are now postponed for at least a month.) The UN and the American Civil Liberties Union have both warned that the mere fact of the trial’s existence sets a dangerous precedent.

Poll: Majority of Americans Approve of Gay Marriage” by John Hudson | The Atlantic Wire
A recent CNN poll (PDF) asked 1,009 Americans: “Do you think gays and lesbians should have a constitutional right to get married and have their marriage recognized by law as valid?” Fifty-two percent of respondents answered yes (with a three-point margin of error), in stark contrast to the conventional wisdom that a majority of Americans disapprove of same-sex marriage. Hudson surveys the reactions of Andrew Sullivan, Glenn Beck, and other prominent pundits.

Wyclef Jean Says Haitians ‘Don’t Need a Local President’” by Robert Mackey | The Lede
Musician and philanthropist Wyclef Jean has announced his intent to run for president of his native Haiti. In the Al Jazeera interview linked here, Jean argues that Haitians need a leader who can travel the world and solicit donations for the island’s post-earthquake rebuilding process. However, he may not meet the job’s eligibility requirements — and ex-Fugee Pras Michel, who is supporting a rival candidate, has allegedly called his former bandmate “the Haitian version of Sarah Palin.”

NHL marketing — the female fan blunder” by Cassie McClellan | From The Rink
This week, the NHL released horrendously ugly, sparkly “champagne” jerseys for female fans of the game. (From the online sales copy: “Show off your feminine figure with a flirty side drawstring cinch.”) McClellan discusses this latest blunder, and other generally clueless attempts by the league to market hockey to women.

“Prop 8 Overturned!”

California’s Gay Marriage Ban Overturned” by Jacob Sullum | Hit & Run
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker overturned California’s controversial Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot initiative that banned gay marriage in the state. “Moral disapproval alone is an improper basis on which to deny rights to gay men and lesbians,” Judge Walker wrote in his decision. “The evidence shows conclusively that Proposition 8 enacts, without reason, a private moral view that same-sex couples are inferior to opposite sex couples.” Nonetheless, the ruling is certain to be appealed.

New Orleans: A Timeline” | GOOD Blog
Floods, hurricanes, wars, oil spills — the Big Easy has had a hard life. This timeline, from GOOD magazine’s New Orleans issue, charts the city’s highs and lows.

Despite Steroids, Does A-Rod Deserve to Make the Hall of Fame?” by Ray Gustini | The Atlantic Wire
This week, the New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez became the youngest player to join baseball’s 600-home run club. Such an accomplishment would typically guarantee a spot in the sport’s Hall of Fame, but Rodriguez is an admitted former steroid user, which casts a shadow on his career numbers. Will voters forgive and forget, or will they keep him out of Cooperstown forever? Gustini surveys the opinions of several well-known baseball scribes.

Condé Nast to license magazine names for restaurants” by Jim Romenesko | Romenesko
Publishing giant Condé Nast has come up with a novel solution for declining revenues – loaning out the names of its famous magazine brands to international restaurant chains. I wonder what they’ll serve at The New Yorker Restaurant: poutine and burritos? No doubt the menu will feature impeccable writing and witty cartoons.

Microscope a marvel for Third World countries” by Mike Williams | Futurity
For his senior design project, Rice University alumnus Andrew Miller created Global Focus, an inexpensive ($240 US), battery-powered microscope that performs as well as units that cost up to $40,000. Testing has shown that Miller’s device is 98.4 percent effective in diagnosing tuberculosis, a disease that still ravages developing countries. Given that an estimated 1.3 million people died from TB in 2008, there’s tremendous demand for diagnostic tools such as this. (more…)

Recommended holiday browsing from the blogroll: “You can really smell the oil”

YouTube Video of Michigan Oil Spill” by Robert Mackey | The Lede
The US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that a ruptured pipeline has leaked more than one million gallons of oil into Michigan’s Kalamazoo River — a figure far greater than the data supplied by line’s owner, Calgary’s Enbridge Inc. Hmm… an oil company downplaying the environmental impact of a spill. Where have I heard that one before?

Educating Michael Ignatieff” by Jane Taber | Bureau Blog
This week on his cross-country bus tour, Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff caused quite the uproar by claiming that he received a “publicly funded education” — despite famously attending Toronto’s prestigious, private Upper Canada College. So what did Iggy actually mean? Taber explains (a party flack’s less-than-convincing explanation).

Wikileaks source suspect Manning transferred from Kuwait to Quantico, VA” by Xeni Jardin | Boing Boing
PFC Bradley Manning, the twenty-two-year-old American soldier suspected of leaking the “Collateral Murder” video and “Afghan War Diaries” trove of classified information to Wikileaks, has been transferred from Kuwait’s Theater Field Confinement Facility to the Marine Corps Brig in Quantico, Virginia. In advance of a potential court martial, he is set to remain in pre-trial confinement indefinitely.

Insurance Companies Profit From Fallen Soldiers” by Marian Wang | UTNE Reader
A Bloomberg news investigation has revealed that insurance companies, by using so-called “retained-asset accounts,” are turning healthy profits off the deaths of US soldiers — all the while paying smaller benefits to their families.

Swimming pool or toxic brew?” by Jennifer Shike | Futurity
According to a study conducted by the University of Illinois, disinfectants used in pool water may be contributing to chronic health problems such as asthma and bladder cancer. Such disinfectants interact with sunscreen, cosmetics, and other consumer products — then become chemically modified toxic agents. So, some kid peeing in the corner: no longer the worst thing to worry about at public pools. (more…)

BP Creates a Flickr Set of Its Own Deception” by Andrew Price | GOOD Blog
This week, after being caught photoshopping press pictures of the Gulf of Mexico disaster, BP created a Flickr gallery of the doctored photos. The company’s description of the set includes a slick passing of the buck: “Although BP is a private company, we’ve instructed the photographer who created the images to refrain from cutting-and-pasting in the future and to adhere to standard photo journalistic best practices.” What a relief! I feel so much better about the planet now.

Scots Defend Lockerbie Convict’s Release” by Robert Mackey | The Lede
The Scottish government is rebuffing American efforts to investigate a bizarre rumour: that BP lobbied for the release of Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi, the man convicted of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, in an attempt to curry favour with the Libyan government. BP representatives deny the claim — and they’d never lie to us, right?

Helena Guergis wants meeting with Harper” by Gloria Galloway | Bureau Blog
Having been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing by the RCMP, the former minister of state for the status of women is demanding face time with Stephen Harper. The PMO, however, is still defending its decision to sack Guergis, saying “several factors” contributed to her ouster from the Conservative caucus.

The Bechdel Test for women in movies” by Lisa Katayama | Boing Boing
Think about the last major Hollywood movie you watched. Now ask yourself these questions, first posed in 1985 by cartoonist Allison Bechdel: (1) Are there two or more women in it that have names? (2) Do they talk to each other? (3) Do they talk to each other about something other than a man? As this clip from the blog Feminist Frequency points out, a tremendous number of popular films fail this simple test.

Inception, Explained” by The Mark | The Mark
Speaking of Hollywood, if you’ve seen Christopher Nolan’s Inception, chances are you’re a little confused by everything that happened, especially the ending. If that’s you, check out this round up of the web’s best explanations. (And if that’s not you, spoiler alert!) (more…)

Oil Stops Gushing Into the Gulf” by Henry Fountain and Liz Robbins | The Lede
…for now.

Oil Spill Flow Stops, But Will The Cap Hold?” by John Hudson | The Atlantic Wire
It took almost three months, but on Thursday at 2:55 p.m. local time, oil stopped gushing into the Gulf of Mexico. Although, as BP COO Doug Suttles put it: “It’s far from the finish line… It’s not time to celebrate.”

The Air You Breathe, the Water You Drink, the Google You Search” by Peter Suderman | Hit & Run
Also on Thursday, the New York Times published an editorial arguing that since Google is “the main map to the information highway,” it functions like a public utility. Therefore, the US government should have some measure of oversight on the company’s search algorithms in order to ensure fairness in the internet economy. The question, Suderman asks, is how much oversight?

US: Ratify Women’s Rights Treaty” | Human Rights Watch
On July 17, 1980, Jimmy Carter signed the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women. Thirty years have passed since that day, yet the US Senate still has not ratified the treaty. HRW calls on the Obama administration to take action on this issue.

A Grilling on Oil Dispersants” by Matthew L. Wald | Green Inc.
The use of oil dispersants in the Gulf is both “troubling” and “unprecedented,” according to top Obama administration officials testifying before a Senate subcommittee. The good news? There has been a 72 percent drop in their use since May, and now that the oil has stopped flowing, the cleanup effort can stop using them altogether. (more…)

Recommended browsing from the blogroll, featuring Octopush, G20 fallout, and potential disaster beneath the Grand Banks

Octopush — Underwater Hockey — Will Haunt Your Dreams” by Zach Dundas | GOOD Blog
Octopush is the strangest sport I’ve seen in a long time. The game is played almost exactly as you’d imagine underwater shinny — provided you imagine snorkelling, swimming-trunked combatants with miniature sticks trying to score a weighted puck into trough-like goals at opposite ends of a pool.

Canada’s year in the limelight, are we any cooler now?” by Louise Elliott | Inside Politics
The year is only half over, but 2010 is already a big one for Canada. We’ve hosted the world twice — first for the Olympics, then for the G8 and G20 conferences— and our banking system is the envy of a world still recovering from recession. As Elliott explains, however, there is a certain “smug” gap between how Canadians think of ourselves and how the rest of the planet perceives us.

Airplane! Turns 30: The Internet Reminisces” by John Hudson | The Atlantic Wire
Airplane!, recently counted among the greatest slapstick comedies of all time, recently celebrated its thirtieth birthday: and I swear the internet nearly crashed due to the glut of critic’s mash notes for the film. Hudson compiles the best of the bunch (and several ha!-ha! video clips).

What Is the Public Works Protection Act Anyway?” by Jean-Marc Leclerc | Slaw
The author, a partner at Toronto business law firm Osler, Harkin & Harcourt LLP, explains the Public Works Protection Act, the previously little-known Ontario law that became notorious during the G20 conference, when it was invoked to declare vast sections of downtown Toronto as “public works” — and therefore help police conduct warrantless searches of activists, anarchists, and everyday people.

Four journalists file police complaints” by Dana Lacey | J-Source
Pardon me: I almost forget journalists. Four reporters who covered Toronto’s G20 protests say they were beaten, arrested, and even threatened with rape while in custody. So much for the protective power of the press pass. (more…)

The Old Union Station, G20-Style” by Alden Cudanin | Spacing Toronto
Cudanin, a Toronto artist and local history buff, presents an image of how the G20 security barricades that currently surround his city’s downtown core might have looked circa 1907.

Reusable grocery bags carry E. coli” by Jennifer Fitzenberger | Futurity
A study has found that reusable, woven polypropylene grocery bags can be rife with dangerous food-borne bacteria. Researchers at the University of Arizona have learned that most people are unaware of the need to wash or bleach their bags between uses; the data also suggests that as more people use the bags, the practice will begin to pose a serious risk to public health.

Shapiro: Say farewell to fly-on-the-wall journalism” by Jim Romenesko | Romenesko
This week, Barack Obama took U.S. Army General Stanley McChrystal’s resignation in advance of a Rolling Stone profile of McChrystal that includes derogatory comments about White House officials made by the General’s aides. While the article is a testament to the continuing power of hard-hitting, mainstream journalism, Romenesko spots columnist Walter Shapiro warning that the aftermath could spell an end for the reporting access that made it possible.

BP Starts Using Kevin Coster’s [sic] Oil Cleanup Gizmo” by Andrew Price | GOOD Blog
You know things have become desperate in the Gulf now that BP has turned to Mr. Dances with Wolves to assist with the disastrous cleanup of its deep-sea disaster. Hopefully, Costner will be The Bodyguard for the people of the Gulf Coast, and his Tin Cup contraption — nicknamed Ocean Therapy — won’t be a Field of Dreams, meaning BP can return the Gulf’s Waterworld to normal in less than Thirteen Days… aaaaaand I could go on like this for a while.

Unlocked iPhones Could Herald True Mobility” by Michael Geist | Michael Geist Blog
Apple’s iPhone 4 went on sale in the United States this week. Its mid-July introduction to Canada could herald a new era in mobile phone purchasing. Apple will be selling the device here in its “unlocked” mode, meaning that, unlike most phones, it will not be tied to a specific carrier. Geist explains why this decision is likely a forward leap for consumer freedom in the national wireless market. (more…)

Gay Men Make Up Most Victims of Hate-Motivated Violence” by Mark | Slap Upside the Head
According to recently released crime data from Statistics Canada, there’s been a huge jump in hate crimes motivated by sexual orientation. Of the 1,036 hate crime incidents logged by police in 2008, 16 percent were perpetrated against homosexuals — more than double the number from the year before. Most disturbing, 75 percent of all violent hate crimes were motivated by the victim’s sexual orientation.

Why Boycotting BP Isn’t Helping Anybody” by John Hudson | The Atlantic Wire
Recently, while vacationing in Florida, I refused to stop at BP gas stations as a protest against the corporation responsible for the ongoing oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. Many Americans have had the same idea. Hudson’s roundup of smart commentary on the subject, however, explains why this tactic barely affects BP’s bottom line.

The Left: A lot of activity, but lacking definition” by Rick Salutin | rabble.ca
Salutin makes a case why the left wing of Canadian politics — the focus of recent media scrutiny, via coverage of the rumoured Liberal-NDP merger and Quebec billionaire Pierre Karl Péladeau’s plans for a right-wing, Fox-style television news network — is actually a “phantom limb.”

Orders of the Day: No more committee work, no more briefing books…” by Kady O’Malley | Inside Politics
This week, O’Malley reports, the House of Commons came together for “one last burst of all-party cooperation” before its scheduled summer break. Um, shouldn’t that be “one first burst of all-party cooperation”?

Guergis requests chance to testify; Ignatieff accused of ‘running down’ Canada” by Jane Taber | Bureau Blog

Wildlife: Brought to you by BP” by Alheli Picazo | rabble.ca
With so much coverage of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill focused on (failing) efforts to stop the leak, the disaster’s impact on the Gulf of Mexico’s wildlife had gone largely unreported. That changed this week, when Associated Press photographer Charlie Riedel published this series of gruesome pictures.

Oil, the Loop Current and the Atlantic” by Mireya Navarro | Green Inc.
According to a computer simulation by the US National Center for Atmospheric Research, BP’s oil leak may “loop” around Florida and travel north, reaching as far as the Carolinas by later this summer. Watch the linked video and be horrified, and/or bring the crisis to your doorstep by visiting ifitwasmyhome.com.

The Commons: Aboard this tiny ship” by Aaron Wherry | Capital Read
With spending for this summer’s G8/G20 summits climbing beyond control, it seems the Liberals have finally decided to act like the opposition. Wherry’s report from this Thursday’s question period details an exchange between Liberal MP Dominic LeBlanc and Conservative Transport Minister John Baird about one of the budget’s most egregious expenditures: $400,000 to restore a vintage steamboat which, in LeBlanc’s words, “will not even be in the water until after the G8 is over.”

Reporters Dispute Israeli Account of Raid” by Robert Mackey | The Lede
Israel’s raid on Turkish ships carrying aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip instantly became a major international incident: death on the high seas is unfunny that way. Mackey rounds up several of the journalists, including Al Jazeera English’s Jamal Elshayyal, who was on board one of the flotilla’s ships, who are disputing Israel’s official account of the incident.

What’s going to happen when the Earth passes through the Galactic Plane?” by Ethan Siegel | ScienceBlogs
One of the many ways the world is predicted to end in 2012 is by our solar system passing through the galaxy’s equator, which sounds awfully eventful. And confusing. Should we be worried or what? Siegel, a theoretical astrophysicist, drops the science. (more…)

The iPad + Velcro” by Mark Frauenfelder | Boing Boing
In the words (er, title cards) of Northern California filmmaker Jesse Rosten, who made this inspirational video, “two of mankind’s greatest inventions[,] together at last.” It remains an open question which of the pair is more useful on its own.

Breathing Soil Bacteria Makes You Smarter” by Mother Nature Network | GOOD Blog
The newest miracle medicine is… dirt? Injections of Mycobacterium vaccae, a naturally occurring soil bacterium that we inhale innocuously while outdoors, have been found to temporarily increase intelligence in mice. M. vaccae stimulates the brain’s level of serotonin, the chemical that decreases anxiety and boosts neurotransmission rates.

The Best Sunscreen May Be No Sunscreen” by Keith Goetzman | UTNE Reader
Before stepping out to breathe all that mind-enhancing bacteria, it would be a good idea to apply some sunscreen — or would it? According to the Environmental Working Group’s 2010 Sunscreen Guide, many popular brands contain ingredients that actually heighten your risk of skin cancer.

CNN’s Larry King Problem” by John Hudson | Atlantic Wire
CNN has a problem. The ratings for the cable newsers’ prime time programs — especially septuagenarian stalwart Larry King’s nightly talk show — have fallen way behind competitors Fox News and MSNBC. Hudson considers the costs of the network’s breakneck race to the middle of the political road.
