TV Morning News Wars Are Heating Up

tvnews
Good morning, The Don,
 
I see “News Wars” between CTV and Global Edmonton is getting hilarious.
 
Yesterday morning, Global announces they will be “expanding” their morning news coverage in the fall to be a full five hours, now starting at 5:00 a.m. and running until 9:00 a.m. As well, they will be “expanding” their morning weekend news coverage to three hours – from 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. on Saturdays AND Sundays.  “Expanding city, expanded news.”  Hmm . . . where have I heard that before? lol. What next?
 
Anyway, any time now CTV will be announcing a new, “expanded” morning coverage to start at 4:00 a.m. in the fall. LMAO!
 
Cheers,
 
Jim Starko
St. Albert


SINC SAYS:

Yes Jim, it's fun to see them play follow the leader. In this case however, the leader is without doubt Global while CTV lags far behind.

The Hair Cut

The Hair Cut
A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his father as to when they could discuss his use of the car.

His father said he'd make a deal with his son: "You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible, and get your hair cut. Then we'll talk about the car."

The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he'd settle for the offer, and they agreed on it.

After about six weeks his father said, "Son, you've brought your grades up; and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible. But I'm disappointed you haven't had your hair cut."

The boy said, "You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that, and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair, and there's even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair."

The Dad's reply:

"Did you also notice that they all walked everywhere they went?"

Ukrainian Talent

There are many things that are worthwhile, but some are more special than others, here you can enjoy something more than just the art.

Kseniya Simonova is the winner of the Ukrainian edition of Do You Have Talent. In the final, she did a live animation of the German invasion of the Ukraine during the Second World War, using her fingers and a sand surface. It brought tears to the eyes of the judges.

They are eight wonderful minutes. The "painting" changes with every movement of her hands.

His Final Wish

His Final Wish
An old Canadian priest lay dying. He sent a message for a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Supervisor and his Lawyer to come to the hospital.

When they arrived, they were ushered up to his room. As they entered the room, the priest held out his hands and motioned for them to sit on each side of the bed.

The priest grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled and stared at the ceiling. For a time, no one said anything.

Both the Canada Revenue Agency Supervisor and the lawyer were touched and flattered that the old man would ask them to be with him during his final moments. They were also puzzled because the priest had never given any indication that he particularly liked either one of them.

Finally, the Lawyer asked, “ Father, why did you ask the two of us to come here?'

The old priest mustered all his strength, and then said weakly, “Jesus died between two thieves, and that's how I'd like to go.”

New York Plans To Ban Sales Of Big Sugary Drinks

superbiggulp
New York City plans to enact a far-reaching ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, movie theaters and street carts, in the most ambitious effort yet by the Bloomberg administration to combat rising obesity.

The proposed ban would affect virtually the entire menu of popular sugary drinks found in delis, fast-food franchises and even sports arenas, from energy drinks to pre-sweetened iced teas.

More in the New York Times.
