Today in the Globe and Mail, Lloyd Barber is quoted stating an disgusting anti-Jewish remark:
“Don’t forget that the Jewish lobby is a very powerful lobby,” Lloyd Barber, a former University of Regina president and companion of the Order of Canada, said yesterday. “It’s not the only powerful lobby, but it’s a very powerful lobby.”
I hope that he loses his Order of Canada very quickly. This makes me sick that the Order of Canada is tainted by these bigots!
Get rid of them now!
Anyway, this topic is discussed on the Blogosphere and some misquoted the article and stated that Mr. Barber was the past President of the University of Manitoba.
He is not and I asked that the blogger correct this.
And he corrected it very quickly. I have made mistakes before as well and taken forever to correct them, so I am very impressed with the quick response!

From Download Squad: Microsoft Anti-Spyware turning a blind eye to Claria (aka GATOR)?
eWEEK says that a week after acquisition talks between Microsoft and spyware company Claria (nee Gator) were first reported, Microsoft’s has downgraded Claria’s software in its own Windows Anti-Spyware. When the program detects spyware from Claria such as Dashbar, Gator, and GAIN, it now recommends that it be ignored rather than removed or quarantined. According to Sunbeltblog (the corporate blog of Sunbelt Software, which sells its own anti-spyware product), the downgrade came with the March 31 update of the Windows Anti-Spyware database.
While, today was an interesting day.
A very interesting day.
I had a good day at work.
Anyway, about halfway in the day, I noticed that I forgot something at home.
This changed my plan for after work cause I had to go to a store.
So I decided to go to Food Basics which meant that I was not going to be on the bus I planned to get to Kiwanis before 5pm to pick something up. While I did not get to Kiwanis till 5:20pm and instead of quickly getting what I needed to pick up and leaving, I stayed for awhile. Then I missed the Barton bus (barely) to get to Lake Avenue, so I decided to go into Summit Direct to look at laptops for September. Then something really good happened…. which brings me to an idea…
Should I get LiveJournal or MSN Spaces for my private thoughts and debates … anyone got a preference?
Anyway, I am waiting for an email to arrive that I am looking forward to.
I was really bothered by the fact that my exam is tomorrow instead of next Monday because I do my studying mostly on Friday Night and Saturday Night but …. now I am relieved because I have Saturday night free to do something…. I have decided that I am going to try to have a life outside of school a little more often.
Lastly, check out this awesome new site: thefacebook.com
Currently it is not available for U of M but it is available for Mac which gives me mixed feelings cause it would be more useful for me to keep in touch with my Manitoba friends now that I am attending McMaster.
