Video: Skytrain New Westminster Door Open Problem


On December 27, 2008 the Skytrain travelling from New Westminster Station to 22nd Street Station had a door malfunction, causing at least 2 doors to be open while travelling between stations. Translink blamed the problem on someone forcing the doors open at New West Station, but also admitted that a technician had disabled the door alarm function while working on the train earlier.

Lesson to be learned: Don't lean against the doors while the train is moving!

CPR 2816 Steam Train trip from Vancouver BC to Mission

More Buses Now Campaign: Email Kevin Falcon, BC Transportation Minister

More Buses Now is a grassroots campaign striving to bring improvements to the Metro Vancouver bus system that will benefit both passengers and riders. The campaign is being sponsored by the members of Canadian Auto Workers local 111 - the bus driver's union.

Are you TIRED of riding overcrowded buses?

Are you ANGRY watching full buses pass you up time after time?

Are you FED UP at the lack of adequate service in your area?

SO IS YOUR BUS DRIVER. And bus drivers are doing something about it – but they need your help.

What’s the problem with our bus system?

Consider the following: currently we have only 1100 buses in service in our entire Metro Vancouver system – that’s not nearly enough! That works out to just one bus for every 1800 Metro Vancouver residents. But 15 years ago, Metro Vancouver had one bus for every 1200 residents. That’s also the current rate of buses in Toronto and Montreal. In other words, we have 50% more residents per bus than we used to, or that Toronto or Montreal have now! No wonder you can’t get on. And it’s not supposed to be that way. Metro Vancouver’s Livable Region Strategic Plan called for 1900 buses to be in service by 2006. And Translink’s own first 5 year Strategic Plan projected 1600 buses in service by 2006. It’s no surprise we have a problem – we are between 500 and 800 buses short.

Free seminar on Biorefining and biofuels – Lignol’s developments on the BCIT campus

Lignol Innovations has recently moved its facilities to BCIT’s Burnaby campus where it has built a pilot scale biorefinery to complete development of its cellulosic ethanol technology. Lignol’s process produces both biofuels and biochemicals from feedstocks such as wood waste and agricultural residues.

This talk will describe Lignol’s process technology, their progress to date and the path to commercialization; it will also explore some of the benefits of biorefineries in reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions and providing a viable alternative to petroleum-based energy and chemicals.

Mr. Michael Rushton is currently Chief Operating Officer of Lignol Innovations Ltd. where he is leading development and commercialization of an innovative biorefining technology for producing cellulosic ethanol.

Date: Wednesday, September 24, 2008
Time: 2:45 – 3:45 PM
Location: BC Institute of Technology Room SW1 - 1205


Lignol is a Canadian company based in BC which is undertaking to construct biorefineries for the production of fuel-grade ethanol and biochemicals from Canadian forests and vast supplies of biomass feedstocks. Lignol has acquired and since modified, a solvent based pre-treatment technology that was originally developed by a subsidiary of General Electric. The pre-treatment technology was previously commercialized in a major pulp mill by Repap with an investment of over $C 100 million.

Lignol acquired the technology, plant operations and related engineering data together with the original GE pilot plant, which is now being integrated in Vancouver, BC with recently acquired process capabilities to convert cellulose to ethanol. Lignol has recently produced ethanol and other bio chemicals from both hardwood and softwood species representative of Canadian forests, and is one of the world's more promising cellulose to ethanol companies.

Police Truck Chase in Maple Ridge captured on video


Televised live this morning from a Global TV newscast. RCMP reopened Lougheed Highway to normal traffic just after 11 am, after this morning's police chase. Police say the man at the centre of a dangerous pursuit in Maple Ridge threatened to blow up a bridge before leading officers on a 30 minute chase.

RCMP Constable Dave Babineau says workers at a nearby farm first called 911 after a naked man showed up and stole a five-ton truck. He says they tried to confront him, but backed off because he was acting erratically.

Minutes later, police caught up with the suspect near Harris Road and Lougheed Highway, which is when he made the threat to blow up a bridge, but didn't name a specific span.

Police then pursued the suspect through the streets of Maple Ridge for nearly forty minutes, as he careened into medians and onto sidewalks, at one point smashing into two police cruisers.

YouTube HQ Audio tips: Stereo, mp4, 44.1 KHz download and save FLV, MP4 videos

YouTube has started to create better quality versions of many videos, adding links that say, "Watch this video in higher quality." Adding &fmt=6 to the end of any Youtube video's url will give you Youtube's new high quality setting.

Getting iPod compatible mp4s:
Using &fmt=18 generates an mp4 using h264 with AAC stereo, which is compatible with video iPods. Using fmt=18, you get a video transcoded from the original clip the user uploaded. The bitrate is lower on the mp4 version, but since the resolution is smaller it compensates. The h.264 codec has better looking videos at lower bitrates. We finally get stereo on youtube with the mp4 version. It has a widescreen 16/9 aspect ratio rather than 4/3.



If you want to download HQ videos from YouTube, use the Better YouTube Firefox Extension from LifeHacker.

Embed High Quality Youtube Clips

This code works fine to embed the mp4 version. The query string var is "&ap=%2526fmt%3D18" specifying format 18.

Vancouver BC Translink : Lousy Bus service, Skytrain service

Where's the improved bus and Skytrain service now that we're paying higher fares???
Skytrain passengers walk beside tracks to Columbia Station after skytrain breakdown
TransLink reports an $87 million surplus in their 2007 financial report, giving the transit authority an accumulated surplus fund of $408 million. But don't expect any break in fares anytime soon.

Dale Parker, Chair of the TransLink board of directors, says the excess money is already alloted for the future. "We have to avoid thinking about this as a 'surplus,'" because that fund is already spoken for, either in terms of sustaining the expansion TransLink has put in place or starting the next round of transit service and road improvements to meet demands over the coming years.

TransLink says additional revenue outweighed the rising cost of operating transit last year. The report shows $301 million has been added to the surplus fund since 2005. TransLink says they'll be drawing on their surplus fund (currently at $408 million) beginning in 2009.

Translink says revenue increased as more riders bought two and three zone passes, because of the high cost of gas. Additional revenue was also generated by parking related taxes bringing in $5 million more than budgeted for.

Burnaby mayor Derek Corrigan says TransLink has a bad habit of charging more tax than necessary. "That happens over and over again, I mean they've had surpluses in the past you'll remember because they got a windfall in the rise in property assessments."

Corrigan also says if some of the surplus was due to undelivered service , that's not really a saving because the public was inconvienced.

FIDO Overcharging on Fido to Fido Service? Ripoff alert

After receiving a couple of huge FIDO cell phone bills recently, I phoned customer service to inquire about some calls that were listed on the statements. I have the cheap 50 minutes + free Fido-to-Fido (F2F) plan. Apparently I was charged an extra $170 for calls to other local Fido users that should have been free.

After spending 30 minutes on the phone to FIDO Customer Service going over each call that should have been free, I was told that YES, they do have a technical problem with overcharging for Fido to Fido calls, and YES they are working to find a solution, and NO you will not automatically get a refund unless you phone them up and basically do what I did, and go through each phone number that you were billed for to find out if they were a FIDO customer.

Anybody else run into a similar problem? Or have you even noticed that you're being overcharged?

You can file a complaint with the CRTC HERE ,

but it doesn't look like they'll be very helpful, as they suggest discussing problems with your provider first. Maybe a class action lawsuit would be the best thing to resolve FIDO's service problems...

How to make Paneer: Indian cheese you can easily make at home

Paneer is an Indian cheese which is used in many recipes for appetizers, main courses and desserts. It does not melt when heated. Paneer is very easy to make at home. Try this easy to follow recipe. Using whole milk, paneer contains about 20 - 25% fat. (To make a low fat version, try using 2% milk). Unlike most cheeses, paneer is also low sodium, unless you add salt when making it...



Here's another instructional video on how to make Paneer (but use lemon or lime juice instead of vinegar!):

Turmeric is a wonder spice: May prevent heart disease, cancer, alzheimers and more


Curcumin from Turmeric Extract
The spice found in most Indian curry dishes might also help prevent the ravages of heart failure, a new Canadian animal study has concluded.

Researchers at Toronto's University Health Network found that curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, both prevents and dramatically reverses enlargement of the heart in mice.

According to Dr. Weil, Turmeric is useful for all inflammatory disorders and for autoimmune conditions. It also may have a role in the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease. (Elderly villagers in India appear to have the lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world, perhaps due to the fact that Indians eat turmeric with almost every meal. Some animal studies have shown that curcumin blocked the formation and accumulation of the plaque that characterizes Alzheimer's.)

Overall, turmeric appears to have significant anti-inflammatory and cancer-protective effects. These seem most evident at doses well below pharmaceutical strength, which suggests that it would be wise to consume more foods spiced with turmeric.

Delta, Surrey BC Gateway Project Insanity: Complain to your MLA!

Both Environment Canada and Health Canada have issued reports that are critical of the Gateway Project that includes the twinning of the Port Mann Bridge and creation of a perimeter road through parts of Burns Bog in Delta BC. The federal reports say the provincial government has not shown any evidence that freeway expansion will solve traffic congestion.

Independent transport economist Stephen Rees says one of the obvious mistakes made by the province is not making a train line to the Valley a priority. "If you want to see transit oriented development, you have to have the transit first. Not as an afterthought or a promise, or a possibly 'we'll get around to it when there's enough people', which is what we're hearing from the province."

Rees says the cost benefit analysis done by the province would not be acceptable as a term paper from a first year student, let alone justify the expenditure of billions of dollars of public funds.

Health Canada says the province has released artificially low air quality impact estimates. In its report of a Gateway Project study on air pollution, Health Canada says "the misdirected focus of this assessment is inappropriate and may be misleading to the general reader."

Rees says the BC government now needs to rethink this Gateway proposal, "And work towards a truly sustainable regional transportation and land use plan with municipal and regional governments. This requires putting transit first."
