A TRAGIC Farewill to CPL Cirillo, and and Tragic Event for Canada


This is such an Incredibly monumental Pivotal point in Canadian History, and, likely shortly followed by the rest of the “Free – or Democratic” countries in the world, and the VAST majority do not even seem to realize the importance of what happened here. It points out a number of MAJOR flaws in our current system, most of which we have been aware of, but took FAR too lightly, or “brushed them off”

This is such an Incredibly monumental Pivotal point in Canadian History, and, likely shortly followed by the rest of the “Free – or Democratic” countries in the world, and the VAST majority do not even seem to realize the importance of what happened here. It points out a number of MAJOR flaws in our current system, most of which we have been aware of, but took FAR too lightly, or “brushed them off”.

First of all, My most Heartfelt Appreciation, and Condolences to CPL Cirillo’s Loved ones for this Tragic and SENSELESS death. I wish to make this GLARINGLY clear that this is my primary message. This young man, with so much ahead of him in life, with so much to offer, had his life cut short Violently, Tragically, and Unnecessary. He was killed; no, Slaughtered doing something he believed in, as a Canadian, for Canadian rights, beliefs, and freedoms. He was, and believed in, the Canadian system that has been in place for (depending on which province joining the confederation, anywhere from 65 – 150 years. A primarily Christian, Near Democratic society with a tolerance for individual rights, almost to a fault, unlike anywhere else in the world.

For FAR too long now, Canadian Politicians and Law makers, right down to public education systems, have bowed down to removing what were OUR traditions, such as the Lord’s prayer, and the singing of O Canada in school, so that we do no “OFFEND” other cultures. To the point that nearly EVERY other religious holiday, from Diwali, to Ramadan, Eid, the list is endless, and we must OPENLY integrate our children into learning about these other holidays and beliefs, which, I see absolutely NOTHING wrong with, as long as WE – CANADIANS – primarily Christian CANADIANS get treated the same way. I, and almost all others I speak to, are SICK AND TIRED of having to recognize all other religious holidays by name, yet we now can not even say Merry Christmas, or even have Christmas Trees, or even MENTION the word Christmas. It is ONLY allowable to say Happy Holidays. This is the ONLY country in the WORLD that would allow such Ludacris, backward ideas. Entertaining – Sorry, Actively allowing the eradication of OUR holidays, histories, and practices to accommodate other races and religions is NOT ACCEPTABLE. Integration is a FANTASTIC thing. Please do not mistake this for a racist or religious rant against ANY specific race or religion. This is about OPEN and FAIR integration.

When we have ACTIVE things such as so called “Honor Killings”, and Sharia Law integration, legal or not, and so many people in positions of power turning a blind eye so often that these things slowly make their way, over generations, into mainstream CANADIAN day to day accepted actions.

Though I am VERY aware that these comments are going to arise great ire in many “strict groups”, it comes back to the old argument of “profiling is NOT profiling, if it is an entire group acting/creating/developing the problem”. If 97% of all murders by gun between the ages of 16 and 25 were committed by White, Anglo-Saxon Protestants, then that group would most CERTAINLY be “PROFILED” as the problem group. The same goes for radical religious actions, such as terrorist organizations and terrorist actions. What is even more terrifying about this event, is that the radicalized and religiously transformed person at fault, just happens to BE a White Canadian or Quebequois…….There are ALWAYS weak, mentally ill, or socially outcast young men/boys and women/girls that can be picked out, and, if promised the right things, and told the right things, made to believe that they can fit in. This does NOT change that these actions, by terrorist organizations, which his video CLEARLY states, is directed by the Muslim Extreme.

Again, do not get me wrong and read more into what I am saying than what I am ACTUALLY saying. I have personally read the Koran, and there is not ONE WORD in the entire holy text, that propagates violence. It is a peaceful, well intended book, with much wisdom, peace, and sensibility behind it. It is VERY similar to our Bible, the New Testament. These “RADICAL” Islamist groups, are taught by their Imams, as they are kept uneducated enough in most cases that they are unable to read at a high enough level, or in some cases, not at all, so they are TOLD what is said in the Koran, and it is these Radical Islāmic Imams that are key players in this group. Most Muslims are NOT RADICALS. They are peaceful, and, generally kind people. It is, after all, the EXACT SAME GOD!!

So, to summarize, Thanks to our “Leaders”, being so afraid to offend any other group, race, religion, or anyone for fear of being labelled, well, anything negative, that the only losing group are “traditional” Canadians (Hopefully you noticed I did not say “Original” Canadians, as that would be the Indians and Inuit, Metis, Eskimo, etc…..) CPL. Cirillo was SHOT TWICE IN THE BACK, by some Mentally Ill Québécois, that was brain washed into converting into a RADICAL ISLAMIST, and ending this INTELLIGENT, CARING, BRAVE, LOVING young man with a bright future, and, outside the small changes that will happen to security around parliament, nothing will be done to drill into these extremist groups that WE WILL NOT TOLERATE THIS SORT OF FALSE AND RIDICULOUS SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT, at the cost of our OWN freedoms and beliefs. A Wonderful young man paid the Ultimate price just Honour guarding the War Memorial, and for that, because he was White, and Canadian, and in Soldiers uniform, though I doubt that would have stopped ANY radical muslim, lost his life.

When will CANADA WAKE UP and realize that the changes have already gone WAY too far, infiltrated FAR too deeply, and are even now, possibly irreversible. As much as I hate to say it, FRANCE ACTUALLY GOT IT RIGHT. Make it AGAINST the law.

Please, PRAY for this young man, His Loved ones, family, his now NON EXISTENT FUTURE, CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN, and who KNOWS what he would have gone on to do.

And it all started with the removal of a Simple Christmas tree………

God Help us.

God Speed, CPL Cirillo, God Speed, and Thank you for your service, beliefs, and willing to ignore Canada’s politicians inability to show a backbone, and stand up for what you believed in. You TRULY are a HERO, and I for one, will NEVER forget. You and ALL the OTHER soldiers who have paid the ultimate price for our DYING freedoms. God Bless you all

Global Terrorism, and a new world ideology and Perspective of “What is safe”


The end of days of open Parliament in Canada.

Are we REALLY surprised?  Can there ACTUALLY be any TRUE Canadians out there that are TOTALLY surprised at the outcome of yesterdays killing of our reservist, and, SADLY, one of our own, troubled young men that was subjugated, or CHOSE to be subjugated to the teachings of Radical Islam?

Now, before I get attacked and jumped on for pointing out that this DID, and DOES have something to do with Radical Islam, I am freely pointing out that this was a White, Anglo Saxon Canadian Citizen, that, for whatever reasons, decided to associate and join the radical Islamic frame of mind.  I have read the Koran.  As a person whose life is VERY much oriented around Academia, I TRY to pride myself with traits such as open mindedness, perpetual, and non biased life long learning, growing, and gaining compassion for all our fellow humans,  We all have had different experiences growing up, leading to drastically different opinions.  What has traditionally made Canada a wonderful place to live in, is that we have been able to be tolerant of our differences, and, even, at times, relishing the challenge of understanding said differences.  We have NOT been a culture of turning to violence, traditionally, to be able to accept, and allow such differences.

What happened on October 22, 2014, and earlier last week in Montreal, changes the face of terrorism, and mindsets of ALL true Canadians, with the final and Full outcomes and changes yet to be comprehended, though we all know it WILL become drastic and country wide altering.

This, although horrific, should NOT be an overly large surprise to forward thinking pundits.  Evidence of the beginnings of change of this level have been showing their ugly heads of possibilities and probabilities for years now; It’s only been a matter of time.  What we choose to do about it, and how we let this change us as a people, and a nation, is the ultimate questions, and the true test of our strengths, and our history, and ability to stand together, as a country, not as secular and individual groups, but as a strong and united county of brothers and sisters.

God Bless all those who have fought, continue to fight, and, hopefully, plan to keep that tradition alive with the up and comers in this line of MOST honourable careers.

I for one, will not be intimidated, or taken down on my own land, in my own country, nor allow my neighbor, brother, sister, Mother, Father, or Child be either, and will do everything I can, even at the cost of my own life, defending what I believe OUR Canada stands for, and fights for.  The freedom of ALL.

My Off the wall, eclectic sense of humour and irony will resume in my next post.

Until then, be safe, be strong, be free.  Be PROUD to be CANADIAN – NEVER AFRAID.

When a Bush Full of Cherries (Cherries grow on Trees Dumb ass!!) Isn’t enough!!


Though I RARELY try to push apps, or advertise them, since I do NOT get paid by any of them, occasionally one or two come along that I just cannot HELP but to mention.  So, with that being said, here are two apps that I CANNOT live without.

For those of you out there that use more than one email address (which there are MANY of us, and in my case, over 14 addresses….) this app not only handles them AMAZINGLY WELL, it also allows you to have complete control as to how you deal with said multiple accounts, and setup is a snap!!  It’s called CloudMagic (NOT CloudMail….), and it even stores your final configuration, so if you have to switch phones, or want to use it on a tablet, all you need to do is enter your cloud mail account info and Voila……all your email accounts pop right up!  –

The second app that I Absolutely cannot live without, is something called Centrallo, which is still in Beta stage, but looks to be one of the most promising and complete CRM (Customer Relations Database) and task manager/scheduler I have ever cone across.  As it is still in Beta, any input is honestly listened to, and we all have a say as to what needs to be added, changed, etc.  Its an app I have been DYING for for a LONG time, but NO ONE ever got it right, or complete, or functional enough.  So, if you want to be a part of polishing off what very well could be THE best management tool built for Android (and help me earn extra storage space….;), head over here for your copy!!!

That’s it for now, but likely not for the day.  I just need o get out and take down some Smurf Portals in Ingress (If you don’t know about Ingress, then you don’t know about Augmented Reality……..and I’m just too damned stubborn to start explaining hat right now.  Especially since I have my eyes set on Global Domination right now…MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA.  ONE MILLION DOLLARS!!!!!!!!!!

While whittling away nada


What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?  I’m not sure either, but I will let you know when my wife is finished arguing with herself….

Why do men have nipples?

What is the purpose of a fly on women’s underwear (like men’s….)

Why is it that whenever you put something important in a place you specifically state “I’m good to put this here so I don’t forget it!!!”, you ALWAYS forget it????

Advice of the day:  When all you have left to mix with is Orange Tang…….just drink the damn Rye straight!!!

Peace out.

NFL SEASON IS UPON US


http://aka-cdn-ns.adtechus.com/apps/128/Ad5896320St3Sz225Sq23811176V0Id33/NFLNow_Preseason_TV_iwant_728x90.jpg

Well, is that time of year….. Both Happy AND Sad. NFL has started, Officially…… HAPPY!!!!! That also, unfortunately, means that Summer, or what we had of it this year up in the Great White North called Toronto. We actually didn’t even really break 30°C (or 90° for you Yanks… ) until the first week of September!!

So, here is the info tidbit of the day. Do NOT try to start a Charity Organization in Ontario. It is, by far, THE most difficult thing to do in regards with the government. They make it so difficult that most people just give up. I understand (and even appreciate and respect due diligence to ensure that money really goes to charity as intended, unlike Goodwill…. ), however, it needs to be at least do-able. If a person has to work full time at it, and is NOT a Billionaire Philanthropist, then that person needs to be paid…..a REASONABLE salary (not a reductionist one, Goodwill, Junior Diabetes, Sick Kids!!!!!!!).

OK, rant over. Time for the “Insight into Jay’s mind” moment. If that dude from Direct Insurance, The one in the suit of armor walked up to you in a parking lot, would YOU let him out an orange into YOUR bag? I would punch the living CRAP out of him, find a bear, The one who wiped his arse on a rabbit, and have him sit on that dude’s face (after he COULDN’T find a rabbit, that is), then I would back over him with my car (only to see if it was real armor), not to hurt him. I sure as HELL wouldn’t let that weirdo get INTO my car, let alone eat my damn Cheesies, OR give that walking, talking freakshow a ride home!!!! Can you IMAGINE what his kids must be like? I would find out where he lives and call the children’s aid society on that shiny metal fetish mother-@$#!?(.

There now. I feel MUCH better, and ready to start my day. Have a good one all!

Be good to each other.

Honda Indy Toronto – 2014


Happy Tuesday All.

For any Non Canadians viewing, we just had a Long Weekend, Dubbed “May 24 Weekend” (Referring to a 24 pack of Beer :), so Thousands, if not Hundreds of Thousands are at work with Hangovers today!! To all those in this Very Unfortunate position, my heart, and hurting head and body, reach out to you LOL.

As the Header Graphic states, this is one of my plenty to come updates in invites to the Honda Indy Toronto 2014! Some people are aware that I am the Director of Pass Control, which is just a fancy title for doing a LOT of work trying to increase and manage a large group of people who Love Racing, and Love spending ALL THREE days – FREE – 6 Inches from the actual track, and sometimes ON it!! We need a lot of new people to join our team this year, and here are the benefits and requirements:

Honda Indy Toronto Pass Control Benefits
Free – Three day pass, including, depending on your location on the track, Pit Passes.

All Passes allow ALL Access, except for the Pit Area during race times, unless you have been granted a Pit Pass for your station.

All Lunches and Dinners, as well as unlimited Water is provided.

Volunteers will receive 2 Pass Control T-shirts and a Baseball Hat with that years Logos or Sponsors.

Again,
ALL ACCESS to the track!!!
This means you can go ANYWHERE, including Paddocks, No Mans Land, etc. You have unfettered access to view the race from ANYWHERE on the course.

Meet Great People, and it’s also a fantastic opportunity to meet a very wide range of people from different backgrounds, cultures, Business connections, and don’t forget, you get to meet the Racers, Team Owners, Team Staff, and Celebrities.

There’s ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like the feeling of watching the IZOD cars driving past you at 300 Km/H, when you are 6 inches away. The Roar of the engines, the flying of rubber, the smell of the high Octane fuel, is, well, indescribable. Once you get on the team and experience your first summer, you will NEVER want to stop going.

Ample Opportunities to “Roam”. Your station assignment (Location on track) requires you to be at said location, however, approximately 4-5 hours a day are yours to break up and explore the Paddocks, the Venues, the Pit Walk-through – Regardless of Pit Pass, The Annex, and all the great food and entertainment.

Many, MANY more benefits, but those are the highlights.

Honda Indy Toronto Pass Control Requirements

You MUST be able to attend ALL THREE days. Exceptions Can be made, but they are isolated incidents, and are frowned upon. We NEED our Volunteers to be at the track for the entire weekend, which, this year, is July 18-20th, 2014. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so Many people will need to take a Holiday or (Cough, Cough) a Sick day, though I do not Personally condone such action *Wink Wink, Nudge Nudge*

The hours of operation change Slightly, from year to year, but generally follow the guidelines of:

Friday – MUST be at the track, in the East Annex where we (BARC) is located, at 6-6:15 am, and usually runs until 6 pm. This is the LONGEST day of the weekend, and the most hectic, as we work on correcting all the minor issues that were overlooked or unforeseen, however that generally does not involve the Volunteers, just Myself and Assistant Director, Andy Kovacs. It just means that you will see us less on that day. Friday Morning arrival is IMPERATIVE, and MUST be there on time, as that’s when you will be informed of any changes this year, Health and Safety overview, which, as you can image, an event like this has MANY, MANY different ways to get injured, however, don’t let that scare you. Other than a few Heat and Sun exposure issues, we have (knock on wood) never had an injury as a result of the races themselves. As long as you are alert and aware of your surroundings, and HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE,, you will be fine. Pass examples, as well as an overview of what you are going to be doing will also be discussed Friday morning. You will Always be assigned and report to the Corner Captain, who has the radio to get in contact with Myself or Andy, and they are experienced, usually LONG term Volunteers (Many 20+ years!), so they will be your first line of support, and will assist you in getting settled, and answer any additional questions you may have. The Radios, are NOT for idle chatter, as I am sure you can understand.

Saturday is usually 6:30 – 7:00 am sign in, again in the East Annex, and usually runs until 5:30-6:00 pm.

Sunday sign in is usually between 7:00 and 7:30 am, and runs until approximately 4:30 pm.

I can personally GUARANTEE that as long as you abide by the VERY few requirements, and stay HYDRATED and safe, you will have an AMAZING, Exhilarating and Absolutely Memorable weekend!!!!

Volunteers MUST be over the age of 18. This is a Legal requirement, and is NOT flexible. My apologies.

Shorts CAN be worn, however you MUST wear you assigned T-Shirts, your Hard Card Pass, and NO OPEN TOED SHOES. The High Octane fuel used by many of the cars, while this RARELY happens, CAN leak out of their “tanks” after a VERY serious accident. This, on fire, is unlike ANY other fire most people have ever seen. As a Gel, it sticks to anything it touches, and burns almost invisibly, and at Incredible Temperatures.

I cannot stress enough, HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE. If you are not urinating every half an hour, you are NOT drinking enough. The sun reflections off the pavement hits you much more strongly that one would expect. Always wear sunscreen and take any additional precautions you may need. Again, HYDRATE. I know, I sound like a stuck record (that’s a black vinyl disc, approximately 12 inches in diameter, and holds music, playable only by a “Record Player”, for those of you born after, well, around 1983 ;P, however it is the PRIMARY health concerns, and the easiest to manage. Sun exhaustion can come on very quickly, and once a person hits that stage, the first thing that affects you is your short term memory, so you essentially end up forgetting to drink even more, making the escalation of the affliction occur very quickly! Heat Exhaustion and Heat Stroke are nothing to take lightly or underestimate. Other than that, The Weekend is an AMAZING experience, can be used to count as volunteer hours if one needs them, and other than checking passes to ensure that people are either able to enter “No Mans Land”, or other restricted areas, or not. As I previously stated, you will have AMPLE opportunity to take off and explore, see the sights, and just have a Blast. The only requirement is that NO location can be left without a minimum of TWO people, for safety reasons.

So, Anyone who is Interested in Volunteering (other than the regular Volunteers, so essentially New Applicants), can send me an email request to

TorontoIndayPassControl@gmail.com, OR you can enter the information at the bottom of the Blog Entry! Please include the following information:

Name
Address
Telephone Number
Age
Your Personal Email address
Anything Relevant that I may have forgotten here
Any Questions or Concerns you may have.

We are all a Great Bunch of people, there for the thrill and enjoyment of the weekend, and Neither myself, nor Andy run a Micromanaged operation. We are Always available, one of us at least, are VERY open minded and relaxed, and have (or so we’ve been told) Great, if not Warped senses of humour, and welcome everyone to give us your thoughts, ideas, and concerns, or questions, at ANY time. We are a group that’s there to have a Great, Safe AMAZING, and Definitely Memorable weekend, so we all try to get along, and do not run our division strictly. Unless someone has made a SERIOUS breach of etiquette or Common Sense rules (walking on a “Hot” track, and physical confrontations with the fans, and the opportunity does happen from time to time – as the availability of Alcohol is all too readily, and those that over-drink, especially in heat, can quite often get belligerent. In situations such as that, we also work Very closely with the Private Security group that is hired every year, and THEY are PAID to take care of this Regardless of the situation, Let THEM handle it. Drinking alcohol during the day while you are “working” is STRICTLY forbidden and will end in an immediate termination and immediate ejection, your pass will be confiscated, and you will be permanently banned from ever being able to volunteer again. I am not too concerned about this one, as it so VERY rarely happens. Some of the big ones, stem from usually very innocent, but NOT thought through actions of one of my volunteers, such as “sneaking” people without the proper credentials into the Pit area when public access is terminated, hanging out in one of the Drinking tents, pretty much anything that is just common sense. Remember that while you are wearing your shirt and hat, you represent Honda Indy, and BARC, and you will stand out. I have no control to make exceptions to this set of rules, and I have seen just about anything one can think of attempted. Some Hilarious, Some Completely IDIOTIC, but generally start with good intentions that were just not thought out. So all I ask is to just use your head, and think things though.

We need to drastically increase our head count, as the year that there was no Indy, the master database was lost and our headcount dropped form approximately 200 people down to 40-50. We NEED around 150-180 to Properly ensure that all areas are covered, and to insure there are enough people to allow for additional “roaming time”, which we like to give as much as possible.
So……….bring on your friends, associates, that list of people you never wanted to talk to again, but PLEASE, Pass on the word, and lets get us back to where we were, so that ALL can enjoy he weekend as absolutely possible!!!

Remember:

TorontoIndayPassControl@gmail.com, OR Add your information at the bottom of the Post, and One of us will contact you.

I look forward to hearing from you all.

Introduction – May 17, 2014


First off, please excuse my Brevity, or lack thereof, depending on the topic, my schedule, my mood and the alignment of the stars, as well as what has been purchased from the Acme Company™ on the specific day in question.

This blog shall contain some innocuous and generally inoffensive (depending on perception) ramblings, current projects, general announcements about both of my companies, (though specific information about either company will be posted on the company’s blog,) and information I find worthy of repeating, or necessary for reasons either known or unknown, and yof Human or Alien origin (I’m not responsible for random Blog Hijackings by oily skinned, pimpled and usually obese teenagers cloaked in darkness and eating Pogo’s® in their parents basement believing such things are funny…)

I cannot promise it will always be, insightful or entertaining, only that it will be to myself (see regulations of the usage of the term IMHO…)

So sit back, grab a “cuppa”, and try to enjoy, as my goal is to humour, excite and entertain all.  Again, in my humble opinion.

Welcome my Friends, Welcome, to the Machine°

Jay
