Cross-boundary Specialized Transit Service in the GTHA

Cross-boundary Specialized Transit Service in the GTHA

I'm just looking for people to fill in a short survey about cross-boundary specialized transit in the GTHA if they use cross-boundary service...

Here's what I originally posted:
Hey everyone, I'm a 2nd year Master's student at UofT in the Urban Planning program. I'm doing a study for my final research paper on cross-boundary specialized transit (paratransit) in the GTA & H. Does anyone here ever make cross-boundary trips using specialized transit in the GTA & Hamilton? if you do, and you're interested in filling in a short survey please send me a message. Or email me directly at krepostmans@geog.utoronto.

ca - This is something that I'm working on with support from Metrolinx who are looking at ways to make the regional system more seamless, so this is a good opportunity to have your voice heard!
Thanks,
Suzan K.

Quote of the day:
'Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.

List of current National Football League stadiums - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

List of current National Football League stadiums - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The following is a list of current National Football League stadiums, sorted by capacity, their locations, their first year of usage and home teams.

Stadiums represent a considerable expense to a community, and thus their construction, use, and funding often enters the public discourse.[1] Also, given the perceived advantage a team gets to playing in their home stadium, particular attention is given in the media to the peculiarities of each stadium's environment. Climate, playing surface (either natural or artificial turf), and the presence or lack of a roof or dome all contribute to giving each team its home-field advantage."

Billboard Hot 100 Chart 50th Anniversary

Billboard Hot 100 Chart 50th Anniversary: "Fifty years ago, in the Aug. 4, 1958, issue, Billboard launched a revolutionary chart called the Hot 100. After nearly two decades of tracking songs distinctively by sales or plays (on jukeboxes and at radio), the Hot 100 was the first list to measure popularity by incorporating both radio play and sales. Scoring the chart's inaugural No. 1 was Ricky Nelson with 'Poor Little Fool.' Billboard.com is celebrating this milestone in a big way. We have posted all kinds of Hot 100-based charts leading up to the newly-unveiled special All-Time Hot 100 chart and the commemorative Hot 100"

This would be great except for two things. One: TSN2 is largely theoretical. I have about 600 channels in my idiot box, and TSN2 is not one of them. If one didn't know better, one would think it was a cynical ploy to boost demand for the second station with Rogers, Bell and Star Choice, none of who carry it. You know, if one didn't know better"

Adventures of the Disabled Village / Adventures in a Wheelchair Village

Adventures in a Wheelchair Village

This is for the able-bodied community. Hopefully it will give an insight in how difficult it can be to live life with an impairment.

***********************************************

Imagine a town full of physically impaired people, all wheelchair users. They run everything: the government, the shops, the factories, the schools, the television studio, the lot.

There are no able-bodied people, so, naturally, when the town is built the community decides that it is pointless to have ceiling ten feet high and doors that are seven feet high. "It's just a lot of wasted space that needs heating," they say. So the ceilings are built at seven feet and the doors at five feet. In every way they design the place the way they want it, and over the years these proportions are standardised by regulation.

One day a few able-bodied people come to stay. One of the first things they notice is the height of the doors. And the reason they notice this is because they keep hitting their heads. They come to stand out by the bruises they carry on their foreheads.

Some doctors, psychiatrists and social workers become involved. The doctors do extensive research and conclude in their learned reports that the disabled able-bodied suffer from "loss of or reduction of functional ability" and the resulting handicap causes "disadvantage or restriction of activity."

Working parties are formed. Many professionals and caring people are worried about what becomes known as the "problem of the able-bodied". Throughout the town there is a rapid growth of real concern. Specially strengthened helmets are distributed free to the able-bodied to be worn at all times. Orthotists design braces, which give support and relief while keeping the able-bodied wearer bent to a normal height.

Finding employment is a major problem for the able-bodied. One man, for instance, applies to become a television interviewer. But he must have a special medical examination when he applies for a job. The doctor, naturally, points out in the report that it would be rather strange to have a television interviewer with a bent back who wears a helmet all the time. Of course the man doesn't get the job and is advised to accept the limitations of his disability.

Finance, of course, becomes a major problem. Various groups of compassionate wheelchair users get together and form registered charities. Twice yearly they hold a collection day, and of course there is the annual telethon, and the "Miss wheelchair village" quest.

Upturned helmets are left in pubs and shops for people to drop their small change into. There is heartening support for organisations such as "The Society for Understanding the Disabled Able-Bodied". There is talk of founding Special Homes.

But then one day it dawns on the able-bodied that there is nothing actually wrong with them, just that society excludes them. They form a union to protect themselves and campaign against segregation. They argue that if ceilings and doors were raised, there would be no problem. But this is, of course a foolish suggestion. You cannot deny disability.

Out From Under: Disability, History and Things to Remember at the Royal Ontario Museum in April [17] and runs until July 17, 2008.

IT GOES FROM APRIL 17 THROUGH JULY 16 2008 - ROYAL ONTARIO MUSEUM

Learning & Teaching Office - Ryerson University: "A child’s trunk. A pile of 16 neatly folded grey sweat suits. A Canadian flag. On their own, they may not have anything in common. But together, they are a part of an activist exhibition of Canadian Disability History created by students, alumni, community collaborators and faculty in the School of Disability Studies.

It started with a history course, a pedagogical innovation in which each participant was asked to arrive not with a head full of ideas but with an everyday object. Subverting the notion of history as grand events, these “things” chronicled a hidden history of significant struggle in the lives of people with disabilities and their allies.

Out From Under: Disability, History and Things to Remember at the Royal Ontario Museum in April [17 and runs until July 17, 2008. It is a unique exhibit and a groundbreaking event as disability history becomes public history at one of Canada’s pre-eminent museums.

In their presentation, the speakers will illuminate the discoveries they made as “one thing just led to another” along the pathway from teachers to curators. The biggest discovery was how fruitful it can be to fall into history. Unexpected riches emerge when you move from ‘knowing’ to ‘wondering’ and from ‘telling’ to ‘trusting."

Her boyfriend asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?"

The blonde says, "According to the picture on the box, it's a rooster."

Her boyfriend decides to go over and help with the puzzle.

She lets him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over
the table.

He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to
her and says,

"First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to
assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster."

He takes her hand and says, "Second, I want you to relax. Let's have a
nice cup of tea, and then .." he said with a deep sigh, . .. . . ......

WHY MEN ARE NEVER DEPRESSED:


Men Are Just Happier People-- What do you expect from such simple creatures? Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. You can be President. You can never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park. Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky. You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental-$100. People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.

One mood all the time.

Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks. A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend.

Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough. You almost never have strap problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes. Everything on your face stays its original color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your face and neck.

You can play with toys all your life. One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one color for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.


You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes.

No wonder men are happier.

Heritage Classic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Heritage Classic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The Heritage Classic was an outdoor ice hockey game played on November 22, 2003 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada between the Edmonton Oilers and the Montreal Canadiens. It was the second NHL outdoor game and the first regular season outdoor game in the history of the National Hockey League, and was modeled after the success of the 'cold war' game between the University of Michigan and Michigan State University in 2001[1]. The first NHL game to be played outdoors was in 1991 when the Los Angeles Kings played the New York Rangers in an exhibition game outside Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. [2] The event took place in Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium in front of a crowd of 57,167, despite temperatures of close to -18 �C, -30 �C (-22 �F) with wind chill. It was held to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Edmonton Oilers joining the NHL in 1979. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television broadcast also set the record for most viewers of a single NHL game with 2.747 million nationwide. This was the first NHL game broadcast in HDTV on CBC."

Cold War (ice hockey) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cold War (ice hockey) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The Cold War was an ice hockey game played between U.S. college rivals Michigan State University and the University of Michigan on Saturday October 6, 2001. It set the world record for the largest crowd at an ice hockey game.[1] The attendance was so high because instead of hosting the game in East Lansing's Munn Ice Arena, Michigan State decided to set up an ice rink in the middle of the much larger Spartan Stadium, which they filled to 103.4% of capacity. This meant that 74,544[2] packed the Big Ten football stadium to watch the MSU Spartans and the U-M Wolverines skate to a 3-3 tie."
