Is quite the organization set up in HIS name, Dr David Suzuki that is. This Guy is pushing two hundred years old or so, with all the double triple overtime put into helping, and that is just at http://www.davidsuzuki.org/default.asp Who knows what Dr. David Suzuki does in his spare time! Probably more helping stuff like he always seams to be doing. Which ?is why I must ask, Is Dr. David T. Suzuki really a mere mortal like you and I?

For example I blatently pillage this following from his web site.

“David T. Suzuki PhD, co-founder of the David Suzuki Foundation, is an award-winning scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster.

David has received consistently high acclaim for his 30 years of award-winning work in broadcasting, explaining the complexities of science in a compelling, easily understood way. He is well known to millions as the host of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s popular science television series, The Nature of Things.

His eight part series, A Planet for the Taking won an award from the United Nations. His eight-part PBS series The Secret of Life was praised internationally, as was his five-part series The Brain for the Discovery Channel. For CBC Radio he founded the long running radio series, Quirks and Quarks and has presented two influential documentary series on the environment, From Naked Ape to Superspecies and It’s a Matter of Survival.

An internationally respected geneticist, David was a full Professor at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver from 1969 until his retirement in 2001. He is professor emeritus with UBC’s Sustainable Development Research Institute. From 1969 to 1972 he was the recipient of the prestigious E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship Award for the “Outstanding Canadian Research Scientist Under the Age of 35”.

He has received numerous awards including the Roger Tory Peterson Award from Harvard University. He is a Companion of the Order of Canada, and a member of the Order of British Columbia. He has received 20 honorary doctorates – 13 from Canada, four from the United States and three from Australia. First Nations people have honoured him with six names, formal adoption by two tribes, and made him an honorary member of the Dehcho First Nations.

David was born in Vancouver, BC in 1936. During World War II, at the age of six, he was interned with his family in a camp in BC. After the war, he went to high school in London, Ontario. He graduated with Honours from Amherst College in 1958 and went on to earn his PhD in Zoology from the University of Chicago in 1961.

The author of 43 books, David Suzuki is recognized as a world leader in sustainable ecology. He lives with his wife, Dr. Tara Cullis, and two daughters in Vancouver. “

Dr David Suzuki In My opinion has/is/will fight like a warrior poet of yeasteryear for that which he believes in because of the leap of reasoning his mind made, based upon the evidence it percieved.

If more people were willing to stand up and do as Dr. David T. Suzuki has/is/will this world truely would be a wonderous place to live in.

We need more electric cars, compressed air cars, solar panels, trees, more bio-diversity and more people like the extrodinary hero, I have just texted about.

Oh yes, it’s very true. Scott Mckeen is just a copy and paste scribe who can not even do that very good! What a squib he is, He posted the proof he is a copy and paste scribe, and not a very good one at that! I , Dave dowling may make the odd typoo here and there, but double posting almost the entire article is something I have never done. . . yet!

Straight from the copy and paste jackasses broadsheet paper where even the EDITORS can not do thier job.

The text in bold was copy and pasted twice in the same article!!!!!!

 

A man walks into a nightclub and everyone laughs in his face.

In other words, a typical night for Larry Miller, blessed as he is with the power to slay audiences with a twitch of his gifted eyebrows.

I caught Miller’s stand-up act at the Comic Strip this weekend and damn near peed my pants. Miller didn’t curse once. No body parts or functions were referenced directly, though plums are now my least favourite fruit.

Miller’s comic genius is in how he inspires audience members to finish the joke for themselves, with hilarious mental imagery and an unspoken demand to laugh at ourselves.

Miller, for example, said women reman naive to the way men really look at them. He likened the look to hungry lions eyeballing prey. Then he furrowed that brow of his, to a gale of laughter.

“Trust me, ladies,” says Miller. “If you knew even for a second how we men really look at you, you would never stop slapping us.” Then he did his classic bit, The Five Levels of Drinking. Most of us have heard it before. Somehow, he made us laugh spontaneously, again.

While Miller’s comedy left an impression, the chance to sit down and talk with him left a more profound one. This is a man who truly enjoys life. Lives in the moment. Is grateful for new experiences and truly loves meeting people.

If you don’t know Larry Miller, it’s because his name isn’t well known outside comedy clubs or Hollywood’s inner circles. His face? Ah, that is a different story. That, we recognize.

His resume includes 50 movies and countless TV shows. He’s been a favourite guest of talk-show hosts from Carson to Letterman. He plays oh-so-odd characters and steals scenes with his off-kilter looks and delivery.

Yet he lost out on one of the most famous TV characters of all time, George Costanza, the iconic neurotic on Seinfeld.

Over at the TELUS website

The telus report shows how the Prime Sinister, Stevil Harker or whatever his name is, won the “code of silence” award from the CAJ. (Canadian associate of Journalists. . . . To quote from the Telus article; “CAJ president Mary Agnes Welch says Harper’s “white-knuckled death grip on public information” made it the easiest decision ever rendered by its judges.”

Kerry Diotte is the local president of the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) and is also  on the national board of directors of the non-profit organization. Mr Kerry Diotte also volunteered to chair the CAJ’s national conference here in Edmonton, this week where the Harker was awarded the award.  

Of course the broadsheet rumormongering mills will of course most likely fail to mention this newsworthy tidbit of information, how one of Edmontons own, did put together this wonderful event.

WTG (Way To Go) Mister Kerry Diotte on the volunteering, I am sure your shining example of how its done, will one day make broadsheet scribes everywhere to try and reach for that honored title and dignified name of “writter.” instead of stooping to copying and pasting.

Oh, and due to disabilities and not using a spell checker or editor, I, Dave Dowling, Candidate for Mayor of Edmonton in 2010, have left some typos here and there in this article, because I am brave and bold, and have no code of silence when it comes to how I type!

Perhaps tally them typoos up, and send notification to me and all, and then you too may win an award from this Blog. . .

why isn’t he current Mayor of Edmonton petitioning the provincial government to make sure these vehicles can be driven on the streets of the great city of Edmonton? I suppose it will take one of those heroic councilors to do so. . . . These vehicles are non-polluting, use no guzzoline, and are resonably priced! Dave Dowling wrote the premier asking why? the premier said in his response” too slow for Alberta!. Barbarians always earn thier name.

“it’s obvious that Scott McKeen uses his bully pulpit not to educate Journal readers but to selectively target, defame, and smear personalities with whom he disagrees. This is gutter journalism in the classical tradition of Geraldo Rivera, Jayson Blair, Leonard “Cry Me A River” Pitts, and Christian Trejbal. “

On the May long weekend, as you and yours head out to the Federal parks as there really isnt all that many good Provincial parks, watch out for the sasquatch’s and other wild life. They have no lawyers to sue and are all innocent victims that do not know they should not be on that road.

A long weekend is not enough time to walk to any provincal park near Edmonton, as there really isn’t any in the Edmonton area. The Federal Park of Elk Island is within walking distance in My Opinion of Edmonton.

and watch out for the americanized Provincal sherrifs, the new and improved road tax collectors, who apperantley are better than the RCMP at taxing motorists trying to enjoy the ever so high prices of guzzoline!

Those high prices of guzzoline are to enjoying the weekend as the engish language puritans are to typoos, or is that typos?

Yes, the rumor-mongering is true, I make lots of typos and typoos all over the place in posts I post, and emails I send, because I am Dave Dowling, and boldly post that raw manuscript with no spell checking, nor editoring whatsoever.

I leave the spell checkin’ and editin’ to those copy and paste scribes, and the whine crowd that can only see the typoos, the typos and nothing but the typoos, and would want to edit michealangelos paintings because they dpnt like the colors.. . .

 

Don’t have too much this May long weekend, or the various levels of governments just may come up with new fangled ways to tax that too. . .

Finally winter is all most over here in the great and Mighty Nation of Alberta!
