New P&C Komodo Skater Table Dolly + Contest to Win » CheesyCam.

The Pico Dolly from PhotographyandCinema.com is a very versatile unit, but some have expressed interest for a slightly larger table dolly. The new Komodo Dolly is not only a bit larger than the Pico, but it also has a unique adjusting baseplate design that allows for a more compact tracking position and added several mounting options for accessories.

Bodog.com case sends warning to all Canadian websites: Geist – thestar.com

Imagine a scenario in which a country enacts a law that bans the sale of asbestos and includes the power to seize the assets of any company selling the product anywhere in the world. The country tests the law by obtaining a court order to seize key assets of a Canadian company, whose operations with hundreds of employees takes a major hit. The Canadian government is outraged, promising to support the company in its efforts to restore its operations.

Why Canadians Should Participate in the SOPA/PIPA Protest

Why Canadians Should Participate in the SOPA/PIPA Protest

Tuesday January 17, 2012
Some of the Internet’s leading websites, including Wikipedia, Reddit, Mozilla, WordPress, and BoingBoing, will go dark tomorrow to protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). The U.S. bills have generated massive public protest over proposed provisions that could cause enormous harm to the Internet and freedom of speech. My blog will join the protest by going dark tomorrow. While there is little that Canadians can do to influence U.S. legislation, there are many reasons why I think it is important for Canadians to participate.

Second, Canadian businesses and websites could easily find themselves targeted by SOPA. The bill grants the U.S. “in rem” jurisdiction over any website that does not have a domestic jurisdictional connection. For those sites, the U.S. grants jurisdiction over the property of the site and opens the door to court orders requiring Internet providers to block the site and Internet search engines to stop linking to it. Should a Canadian website owner wish to challenge the court order, U.S. law asserts itself in another way, since in order for an owner to file a challenge (described as a “counter notification”), the owner must first consent to the jurisdiction of the U.S. courts.

Grandmothers to Grandmothers

On June 12th I have the honour of being the event photogrpher for the Georgian Bay Grannies’ “Stride to Turn the Tide” Fund raising walk.  this event is an initiative of the Stephen Lewis Foundation to build solidarity, raise awareness,and mobilize support in Canada for Africa’s grandmothers.

Since the launch, some 240 groups of Canadian grandmothers have taken up
the call to action. To date, the campaign has raised more than $10
million for African grandmothers and the children in their care. SLF has
directed these funds to community-level organizations in 15 sub-Saharan
African countries that provide grandmothers with much needed support,
such as food, housing grants, school fees for their grandchildren and
grief counselling.”
