ISIS: Radicalism and Attacks on Canada

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Today, a group of gunman attacked the Ottawa area. Yes.. I know, sad and horrendous day for humanity right? The truth is that there is always more to a story than what you can see. This one is no different.

A single gunman shot a Canadian solider at a memorial near parliament hill. This is a disgusting crime no matter who you support. Someone is remembering the spirit of a lost friend or family member. The solider died two hours after he got shot. It is quite inhumane. At that time, I felt angry. I knew it was ISIS who was responsible. As you may know, yesterday a ISIS member ran over 2 soldiers with a car. ISIS has also publicly stated that they will attack Canada.

Then, came more developments. Gunshots were fired in the parliament library. The parliament was in lock down. The government responded very well. They were quick in providing safety measures. All party leaders ( Harper, Trudeau and Mulcair) were brought to safety. Many buildings were in lockdown. All major malls near Ottawa were in lockdown. The first gunman who shot the solider was found and shot dead. The second gunman is still at large. Police are canvassing and interviewing the locals in an effort to find the second gunman.
This is basically what happened, now comes the important part.

ISIS has attacked Canada twice already. Yesterday, they ran over the solider and today, they shot a solider. As promised, ISIS is attacking Canada. Why are they using methods of terror to scare people. The Canadian government has 90 potentially dangers ISIS militants in Canada. Now, that has decreased to 88.
My point is: Why is ISIS doing this? What do they gain from this… NOTHING! They are killing random soldiers just to make us scared. Screw your ass ISIS. Killing soldiers is not the solution. It will only strengthen the hatred we have for you, stupid ISIS.

There a strong possibility that ISIS will attack major cities like Vancouver, Winnipeg, Regina, and Toronto. As a proud Canadian, I worry for my life. It could be me or you that ISIS kills next. ISIS are senseless idiots. I think the Canadian government should arrest the 88 remaining ISIS militants, interrogate them and either kill them or put them in jail. With aggressive people, the only solution is to be aggressive to them.

Canadian Soldiers Hit By Car: Why Did We Jump To Radicalism?

Tags

, , , , ,

Yesterday 2 Canadian soldiers were hit by a car in a small Quebec town by the name St-Jean-sur-Richelieu. 1 soldier has died of his injuries, the other still in hospital fighting for his life. The suspect, Martin Rouleau, was gunned down by police forces. Before police started investigating, Conservative MP Randy Hoback brought up a point regarding the situation in the House stating that perhaps the hit and run was “radicalized.” I am a proud Canadian and am against terrorists. However this raises a point. Why do we always turn to radicalism? Before we knew that Roleau converted to Islam, we assumed that the attack had terrorism. What if it was just an accident? I am against terrorists, but I don’t like the fact that people jump to the conclusion that when an attack happens it has to be radicalized.

Controversy Of The Day: Luis Suarez: The Controversy Of A Vampiric Footballer

Tags

, , , ,

By: Boss

The most controversial footballer of today is Luis Suarez. Suarez is Uruguayan and plays on FC Barcelona. Suarez is known for biting, diving, and much more. Most of these incidents resulted in charges and match-bans. Honestly, he knows what he is doing and doesn’t care if he will end up in these problems. I believe he does this so he can spend time with his family during the match-bans. Come on man, I know you really want to spend time with your family, but the team needs you to win. Good footballers are not to have this type of attitude, and also do not want to be banned from FIFA games forever.

The most talked about thing is Luis Suarez and biting. Suarez bit his first victim Otman Bakkal of PSV Eindhoven. He was fined and banned for two matches by Ajax, the team he was on. Suarez transferred to Liverpool F.C, where he bit his second victim, Branislav Ivanovic of Chelsea F.C and was banned for ten matches. The most recent biting incident occurred during the world cup, where Suarez bit Giorgio Chiellini. Suarez was suspended for nine international matches, including Copa America and banned for four months.

In the 2010 FIFA World Cup quarter-final between Uruguay and Ghana, Suarez committed a handball in the penalty area during the final minute of extra half-time, when Dominic Adiyiah kicked the ball and Suarez palmed the ball. Suarez received a red card and a penalty kick was awarded to Ghana, but the game went on to penalty kicks as the ball hit bar of the net. The penalty kicks ended in a 4-2 victory for Uruguay as they proceeded for the semi-finals. Uruguay lost the semi-finals to Holland, but proceeded to the Third-place Game with Germany, Suarez returned, but to be booed at every time he had the ball, Uruguay lost again.

Suarez said he wants to change, but he just can’t. It will take some time for him, but he should be a new man when he plays for Barcelona on October 26. F.C Barcelona be ready for Suarez!

He is tasked with doing a big thing. Best of luck to Boss.

Canada’s Americanization: The Good And Bad (Part 1)

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

By: Zak

Canada. Canada is my home. I was born and raised here. Living up north I’ve grown to love companies and practices that are native to Canada. Hockey, The Bay, Canadian Politics, BlackBerry, Canadian Hip Hop, are just some reasons why I love Canada. To the south of Canada lies the US. A dominant country in the world. A superpower. With a population of 300 million people, the United States of America is quite a big country. With more people comes more brains. Lots of things that are used in our everyday lives have been created in the US. Everything from light bulbs to corn flakes originate from the States. Being our neighbour we would have to be on good terms. Canada and the US are allies. When things get rough we help each other out. Canada helped the US through the war in Afghanistan.  When you look at the business side, many different companies that have done well in the south have decided to expand up north. Businesses in the US use Canada to test themselves out. They use us to see how they’d fare in another country. Burger King and McDonald’s are some of the companies that have expanded into Canada. Now think about it. Do you visit McDonald’s more than you visit a Canadian food retailer like Harvey’s? Do you visit Subway more often that you visit a Canadian company like Mr. Sub? When people start to use and recognize American companies more than Canadian ones, it shows that something is in the act of being fulfilled. Americanization.

This is part of a zakopinion special. Part 2 will be published next week. Stay tuned!

Alberta: Conservative today, Liberal tomorrow

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

By Zak and Boss:

Zak: All political parties have a certain area where lots of their votes come from. For the Conservatives this area are the Prairie provinces. Cowboys, oil, and cold winters. With a population of about 6 million this would definitely be an area to get some votes from. For the longest time the Liberal Party of Canada has been trying to garnish their mainly Ontario votes with some from the prairies. Justin Trudeau recently decided to pay Alberta a nice visit.

Boss: Alberta and Saskatchewan vote for the Conservatives, this is where most of the Conservative votes come from. The reason being Stephen Harper lives in Calgary. Also many big businesses are based in the prairies because of the oil industry. Conservatives support big businesses. How is Trudeau going to convince millions of citizens in the prairies to vote for him, Harper would be highly agitated if his voters change their mind. Infact he’d be screwed. For those in Alberta and Saskatchewan right now, would you people honestly want to be governed by a guy who’s going to waste the oil that you preciously own and later will be taxed high? So think about it, has Harper done good for you, Alberta?

Mclaren P1: The turning point of Supercars and Hypercars

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

If any of you guys know about supercars. You should know the British automaker McLaren. If you don’t know, McLaren has created many amazing cars such as the F1, MP4-12C, 650s and more. McLaren Automotive, commonly referred to as McLaren, is a British Automaker of high performance vehicles. The company was established as McLaren cars in 1989 as a producer of road cars based on F1 technology. It works closely with McLaren racing, the Formula One constructor, and is a spinoff of McLaren group. I personally think their best creation yet is the McLaren P1, a hybrid hypercar. Many people loved the looks and performance of the McLaren F1, which was the best performance car of its time. I always loved super performance cars personally. However, global warming and climate change is a big problem now, it seems unfair that what you drive could effect the way the world is shaped. This car is the perfect solution. If you think that a hybrid sports car won’t do…don’t worry, with 903 horsepower and 978NM or torque you will spend plenty of your time in your McLaren p1 laughing your ass off.

Let’s first start by talking about the looks of the car. The head lights look amazing, it is shaped by the McLaren logo. The talk lights looks as if some alien from the year 3000 zapped their latest design on the car. The spoiler works amazingly, it can turn different angles to aid in braking and acceleration. The area in front of the gas engine air take is made of carbon fibre, which looks AMAZING. There curves and the air-intake valves looks like it was just taken off a fighter jet. The diffuser and splitter are made from carbon fibre composite, which makes the car light and stiff. The aerodynamic, ad ons makes the car have an amazing amount of downforce, making it very stable at high speeds. Overall, it is the combination of curves, carbon fibre, aerodynamic ad ons, and the head and tail lamps that makes the car so strikingly beautiful.

Next, I will talk about the cars amazing power-train which is both advanced and effective. The P1 features a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine that is only similar to the MP4-12c motor in its displacement. The petrol engine is mid mounted, giving the car an amazing real axle to front axle distribution. The twin turbos boost the petrol motor at 2.4 bar to deliver 727 bhp (542 kW) and 719 Nm (531 lb ft) of torque at 7500 rpm, combined with an in-house developed electric motor producing 176 bhp (131 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb ft). With both motors, the P1 will have a total power and torque output of 903 bhp (916 PS) and 978 Nm (722 lb ft) of torque respectively. The electric motor can be deployed manually by the driver or left in automatic mode, whereby the car’s ECUs’torque fill’ the gaps in the petrol motor’s output, which is considered turbo lag. This gives the powertrain an effective powerband of almost 7000rpm. The car is read wheel drive with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission by Graziano. The transmission just shifts so quiet and light, it feels light a sniper’s bullet going through paper. The design is really smart and sophisticated, having an heavy engine in the back and a lighter engine up front lets the car have a mid engine rear weight biased feel to it, which is very good in terms of driving pleasure and driving bliss.

Let’s start going into the smaller details. The brakes from Akebono are the best thing in the world, you touch them lightly and they will respond. I think it would be even better if the brake discs were slotted and drilled. The steering, with electric assist and race elements in them, is both accurate and responsive, which is very, very crucial if you take your car to the track. The entire chassis of the car is made from carbon fibre, which keeps the amazing piece of technology at an even more amazing 3280 pounds. Because of the fact that the carbon fibre chassis makes the car so stiff, McLaren didn’t have to put in stiff springs, however, McLaren wanted this to be a track and road car, so they made the springs really stiff as well. The P1 comes with Formula 1 derived features such as the Instant Power Assist System (IPAS), which will give an instant boost in acceleration via the electric motor, a Drag Reduction System which operates the car’s rear wing, thereby increasing straight line speed, and KERS. Both of these features (IPAS, DRS) are operated via two buttons on the steering wheel.

Finally, I will talk about some specs. The P1 will go from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 6.8 seconds, and 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 16.5 seconds, making it a full 5.5 seconds faster than the McLaren F1. It completes a standing quarter mile in 9.8 seconds at 152 mph (245 km/h). Top speed is electronically limited to 217 mph (349 km/h). The McLaren P1 features the Pirelli P Zero Corsa as the tire. This is rather disappointing. I personally expected a much more racier compound like the Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tire or the Pirelli Trofeo R street slicks. A stickier and racier tire can result in a fast acceleration, braking and top speed. Most importantly, a stickier tire will provide better traction. In terms of braking it takes 6.2 seconds to brake from 186 mph (299 km/h) to standstill, during which it will cover 246 metres. From 60 mph (97 km/h), it will cover 30.2 metres.

I think a car like the McLaren P1 is the next generation of cars. We can include both performance and environmental aspects in a hypercar. If you want to buy it… Uhh. The last ones were old. Only 375 were made, this is a limited production car. If you wanted to know, the price tag is 1 600 000 USD.

Made For YOUR iPhone Speakers: Pure Stupidity

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Walmart had a sale on about 1 week ago. Being a cheap person, I decided to go see what was on sale. I’m usually interested in the tech section so I headed up there. There were amazing sales! Docking stations and amazing loudspeakers were all 40% off. Boy was I happy. I picked up one of the boxes and to my dissatisfaction it said “Specially made for YOUR iPhone.” I decided to check another box once again I read: “Made for your iPhone.” Box after box they all said “Made for your iPhone.” Finally I came across a shitty ass pair of speakers that said “Compatible with BlackBerry, Android, etc.” Like myself 82% of people in the world don’t use iPhones. I’m pretty sure companies would make much more money if they sold better universal speaker systems. Idiots. I thought companies like Sony are much smarter. “Made for YOUR iPhone.” I don’t have a damn iPhone. I ended up not buying anything, a loss for Walmart and the speaker companies.

Album Review: Switched On by Madchild

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Madchild is back and this time around he’s pretty mad. Going solo, the Vancouver area rapper doesn’t disappoint on his new album that just dropped this week “Switched On.” It’s not onna those where you can crack open a can and listen to it while your typing up something else. This album requires the listener to pay attention and to listen to and study the lyrics well. The Swollen Members just released their new album “Brand New Day” in June, so Mad has been at the mic for quite the time. Switched On truly represents what he really is. Tracks like “Iran” and “Tom Cruise” show Mad’s creativity. On the other hand one’s like “Tiger Blood,” and “Switched On” show the true side of the Battle Axe Warrior, it shows that after 21 combined solo and Swollen Members albums, the fire is still raging inside of him. Madchild has done lots of work throughout his career, and this is just one of the albums that have made Madchild a household name. The beats in this album are killer, and Mad’s rhyming skills are very much intact.
I’ll give my top three tracks from the album.

1. White Knuckles
This is a classic Madchild rhyme. The evil in this track is quite something. It’s a dark rap, one that mystifies you as it plays. It has an extra-terrestrial feel to it. Sorta like evil sci-fi. This track also reminded me of “Supernova from The Swollen Members’ latest drop “Brand New Day.” If listened closely, this track could possibly take you to outer space.

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ixjo8SkHVWA

2. Switched On
Once again a creepy mysterious beat, this tracks is pretty quick and slick coming in at 2:29. In this track, Madchild is basically talking about how you shouldn’t mess with him. This one is straight up rapping, there’s no hook. Mad also says about how you should just be yourself and not compare yourself with people who are on another level. Madchild also spits about how he’s seen it all, talking about what he does. Overall a good track that’s also a fast one. Lots of meaning behind these words.

3. Tiger Blood
This is classic Madchild work. Tiger Blood is a track that will really get your insides pumping. It’s a tough rap that has Mad going on about everything from dissin Akon to talking about Freddy Kruger. The lyrical play is dope in this one. This is basically a diss track to everything and everyone Mad has ever had shit with.

To sum this all up, the album is a great one. The lyrics really make it great. With 18 tracks it’ll have you listening for a while. It’s my guarantee that it won’t get boring!
