Wapta Falls Hike or Snowshoe in Winter

In the winter a Wapta Falls hike or snowshoe makes for a delightful half day outing. It’s a longer hike in the winter since you basically start from the Trans-Canada Highway, so you must add a few kilometres to reach the summer trailhead. If you’re staying in the Field – Golden corridor, or you have a few hours to spare while you’re driving between Golden and Calgary, I would encourage you to do the hike.  We opted for snowshoes on the Wapta Falls hike but even with as much snow as you see in th...

Braided loaf with Sharbati atta, matcha coconut loaves and other bakes

Braided loaf with Sharbati atta, matcha coconut loaves and other bakes Submitted by Kistida on August 27, 2021 - 8:11am. Hey everyone, It's been very HOT lately! I'm so glad August is almost over and the weather is getting slightly cooler. On our way home from Niagara, we stopped by a branch of Panchvati for some Indian snacks and sweets. I left with a bag of Sharbati atta and murukku. I like how smooth this version of atta is compared to others. And at about 25°C, this flour ...

How to make the most of your trip to the ‘Niagara Falls of the West’

When you think of waterfalls in North America, there’s a good chance that Niagara Falls is top of mind. While those falls are certainly majestic, they’re not even close to the highest. Falls in Yosemite and Hawaii are also easy to point to. Waterfalls in Idaho, however, probably don’t crack your top 10. Well, they should. Idaho is home to some of the country’s most stunning natural beauty, not least of which is Shoshone Falls. Dubbed the “Niagara Falls of the West,” Shoshone sits just outsid...

Weekend Wanders – Evergreen & Waldorf

On the weekends we tend to leave the house as a family and Go Do Things. Sometimes that involves driving a couple of hours to a Provincial Park and spending the day hiking or hanging out on the beach or going to a farmers market or farm stand to pick up some fresh local vegetables. This weekend was more of a market weekend, but we still managed to pop over to a park too. Saturday mornings at the Evergreen Farmers Market at the Brickworks have a nice flow to them – the open air outdoor market ...

Andy Warhol’s Art Explained: What Makes His Iconic Campbell’s Soup Cans & Marilyn Monroe Diptych Art?

Pop Art looks out into the world. It doesn’t look like a painting of something, it looks like the thing itself. — Artist Roy Lichtenstein By 2021, most of us accept that Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans are art, but there are some who are still not confident as to why. No shame in that. Art Historian Steven Zucker and the Khan Academy’s Sal Khan tackle the question head on in the above video, concluding that the work is not only a reflection of the time in which it was created, b...

Victorian 3D: virtual adventures in the stereoscope

Armchair travel is more popular than ever today, making this an excellent time to explore a key moment in the history of home-bound travel. In the Victorian era, people used a stereoscope to launch themselves on virtual journeys to far-off lands from their own parlors. Users inserted a stereograph, twinned photos of a slightly discrepant image, into the device and then peeped into the eyepiece, where the image leaped into startling three dimensionality. The stereoscope created an immersive you-a...

Taking a Guess at the Men’s NCAA Tournament Field: February 1st Edition

These guys are probably fine. We’re now down to just 50 days until the field is supposed to be selected for the 2021 men’s ice hockey tournament. Obviously it’s a weird year and the Pairwise can’t be used with almost zero interconference data points. But if this tournament is going to be played—and even if this year feels like nothing like a normal year and will probably forever carry an asterisk, I still hope it is played for the players’ sake—somebody is somehow going to ha...

This Week In Trailers: Mogul Mowgli, The Walrus and The Whistleblower, The True Adventures of Wolfboy, How To With John Wilson

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week, we’re spitting fire with Riz Ahmed, go swimming with some large mammals, forget to shave, go on an urban adventure, and finally fin...

Smart: This Theatre Signed Up For Pandemic Insurance Before The Pandemic

About three-and-a-half years ago, Tim Jennings, the executive director and CEO of the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, decided to undertake some risk analysis alongside his CFO. He looked at potential problem areas, and at concerns that might arise throughout the course of an ordinary season of theatre, and came to a shrewd conclusion: The festival should take out an insurance policy against the threat of a pandemic. – National Post (Canada)

Blue Jackets: Jarmo Kekalainen’s 3rd-Round Picks Ranked

Ever since Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen was named Scott Howson’s successor on Feb. 13, 2013, the franchise’s fortunes have dramatically changed and they have slowly earned respect around the NHL.

The New York Islanders have plenty of handpicked talent through the NHL draft in their line-up today. Mathew Barzal, Brock Nelson, Ryan Pulock are a few stand-out names that have found success at the NHL level, and are a core of this Islanders group.

Trade deadline deals at any level of hockey are a complicated beast.
