Inscribed in the living tile: Type in the Toronto subway (Joe Clark)

Inscribed in the living tile: Type in the Toronto subway (Joe Clark): "The Toronto subway has a typographic heritage all its own, starting with a unique font. But, with renovation after renovation and after a series of new station additions, signage and wayfinding in the system are a total mess. The latest “standard” in Toronto subway signage uses fake Helvetica and is a clone of Massimo Vignelli’s work from 40 years ago"

Jena Six - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jena Six - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Jena Six refers to a group of six black teenagers who have been arrested and charged with crimes related to their alleged involvement in the assault of a white teenager in Jena, Louisiana, on December 4, 2006. The incident is one of many racially charged events that have occurred in the town since the hanging of nooses on the 'white tree' on the Jena High School campus. The nooses initially caused racial tempers to flare, as for many it recalled the history of lynching in the South, though a few white people in Jena, who were not related to the incident, have claimed that it was just a 'prank' with no racist intent.[1] Critics of how the case was handled, including civil rights activists Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, have said that the arrests and subsequent charges were racially motivated."

Kenadie News and Updates

Kenadie News and Updates: "Now I will move on to Kenadie. Now 4� years old... Kenadie is still in daycare for the mornings and an entry Kindergarten program in the afternoons. She is beginning to put more and more words together and is trying to communicate more every day. Just last week we had a Psychological Assessment done for her. This was to help us with her goals for development and education as well as for discipline. Kenadie is a happy and pleasant child, and was assessed at approximately a 2 year level. I will now take this opportunity to address an issue that has been brought to my attention several times. Kenadie is NOT potty trained yet. I realize that she is 4, but she is petrified of the toilet; and now learning where her development is we have been assured by our doctors that pushing potty training is not necessary. It will come in time for her, and in fact she has shown a small bit of interest as her brother is now starting. So, as I have said in the past, we will let Kenadie grow at her own pace."

Toronto subway station tiles

Toronto subway station tiles: "The original Toronto subway tile colour scheme was generated by combining a number of background colours with four trim colours. The result was one of subtly varied unity, offering just enough difference between otherwise similar stations to avoid confusion. The regular pattern in the colour scheme went unnoticed by most subway riders."

History of American football - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

History of American football - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The history of American football, the most popular spectator sport in the United States,[1] can be traced to early versions of rugby football. Both games have their origin in varieties of football played in the United Kingdom in the mid-nineteenth century, in which a ball is kicked at a goal or carried over a line. American football resulted from several major divergences from rugby, most notably the many rule changes instituted by Walter Camp, considered the 'Father of American Football'. Among these important changes were the introduction of the line of scrimmage and of down-and-distance rules"

National Football League - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

National Football League - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The National Football League (NFL) is the largest and most prestigious professional American football league. It was formed by eleven teams in 1920 as the American Professional Football Association and adopted the name National Football League in 1922. The league currently consists of thirty-two teams from American cities and regions, divided into two conference each of four divisions. The regular season is a seventeen-week schedule during which each team plays sixteen games; its divisional rivals home and away (six games) and one game against each of ten opponents across the other divisions and opposite conference. The season currently starts on the Thursday night in the first full week of September and runs weekly to late December. At the end of each regular season, six teams from each conference play in the NFL playoffs, a twelve-team single-elimination tournament that culminates with the NFL championship, the Super Bowl. This game is held at a pre-selected site which is usually a city that hosts an NFL team. Two weeks later, selected all-star players from both the AFC and NFC meet in the Pro Bowl, currently held in Honolulu, Hawaii."

TheStar.com - living - Put politicians on the hot seat: "Will disability support payments go the distance as an election issue this fall? After years of being ignored, if not wilfully neglected, they are suddenly front and centre as Ontarians get set to go to the polls Oct. 10. That's both good and bad news for people with disabilities struggling to survive on what is literally starvation funding."
