Toronto Mayor Rob Ford on the Sports Junkies radio again in Washington – ‘Women love money’

Rob Ford on CBS Sports Junkies 106.7

Toronto, Canada – Mayor Rob Ford called into the Sports Junkies radio show in Washington, DC on Thursday and said, “Women love money” in reference to what he’s giving his wife for Christmas. “You give ’em a couple thousand bucks and they’re happy.”

This is the second time he’s been on the local CBS radio station and has invited the hosts Eric Bickel and John-Paul Flaim to come and visit Toronto, and spoke about his love for football.

News media websites that restrict viewing, secret fix to get around blocked views – FREE

Toronto, Canada – The new trend on many newspaper websites have restricted viewing to only ten views per month. I have uncovered a secret fix to get around this greedy practice by National newspapers.

It’s not only happening within the Toronto area but throughout the world where daily papers are charging upwards to $10 per month to view their website online. When newspapers started putting their newspaper online they thought it was a great idea, since they place advertising all over each page. They got greedy and wanted to start charging for the online content, and nearly all of them have started to charge, unless you already have home delivery.

Don’t be fooled by the introductory offer of 99 cents, it is for the first month only.

Here’s the fix. Most papers allow you to view the start page without interruption. Once you click a story, a box pops up telling you if you have viewed more than 10 stories for the month. All you have to do is copy a story headline and paste it into another google search browser, and it allows you to read the story you are interested in.

Do the papers tell you this? Not likely, they are just getting way too greedy since the online paper still has advertising, and there is no reason to pay anything extra for this content.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford on SNL ‘Saturday Night Live’ appearing LIVE on CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday night, will he resign?

Toronto, Canada – November 17/2013 – Toronto’s mayor Rob Ford has become an international celebrity for all the wrong reasons, as he was showcased last night on SNL (Saturday Night Live)

Bobby Moynihan played the part of Mayor Rob Ford perfectly. However the skit was so real Moynihan injured his ankle and was unable to attend the red carpet screening of his new movie Delivery Man, Sunday night.

He just attended a taping of his new TV show Ford Nation today at Sun News Network in downtown Toronto. The show will premiere on Toronto area channels and across Canada Monday night at 8 p.m.

He has also been scheduled to appear LIVE on CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday night at 8 p.m. Cooper will no doubt let him get away with anything, as he usually asks the tough questions.

Ford has a tough day ahead as he is scheduled to attend City Council Monday as the full council will be in attendance and they plan on further restricting the powers of the mayor.

After he admitted smoking crack cocaine last week and the revelations of his “drunken stupor’s” the council has been on a constant witch hunt to remove him as Mayor but it’s not possible.

The Municipal Act/City of Toronto Act, does not allow for impeachment or recall and the only way he can currently be removed from office is if he resigns or is convicted and sentenced to a jail term.

Mayor Rob Ford of Toronto should resign now, or at the very least, step aside immediately

UPDATE: November 14/2013 – Mayor Rob Ford of Toronto has not hit rock bottom yet, but he’s getting close. In a LIVE TV interview at city hall he made an uncensored comment about someones ‘pu$$y’ and be warned, it is uncensored and very graphic, even the reporters were taken back. It was reported today his brother councilor Doug Ford said the two will be starting a TV show next week. The gift that keeps giving, no end in sight. Check out the comments on YouTube, quite extraordinary.

Toronto, Canada – Yes, our Mayor Rob Ford  is a ‘crackhead’ and although he never admitted it back in May 2013 when a video surfaced, he did finally admit it yesterday. He says “it happened when I was in one of my drunken stupors” (plural) and “I’m not an addict” which is a bit of a stretch, since Mayor Ford, you are a liar and a crackhead and an embarrassment to our city. Of course it has no reflection on the people of Toronto, but it does draw negative attention to our great city. Ford even went as far to say “I have nothing left to hide” which again is a big stretch. This may never end soon, and the worldwide media and comedians are having a field day with this revelation.

“I have smoked crack cocaine” said Rob Ford and he went on to say he would still be seeking re-election next October when his current term ends. He must have been on crack when he made that comment. Just what everyone needs for their desk or for the kids at Christmas, a Rob Ford bobblehead. The only thing is it doesn’t show him smoking crack, and barely looks like him, but hundreds of people lined up today at City Hall to get the first thousand available. For a larger view of the bobblehead, CLICK HERE.

This video above is from China about world events and their take on almost anything. They got some parts correct but Toronto police do not wear RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) uniforms. UPDATE: November 13/2013 – It’s been reported Mayor Rob Ford has many other skeletons in his closet and at full city council meeting today he was told to get help immediately.

The Falling Man 911- from the North Tower of World Trade Center 2001 – Identified as Norberto Hernandez

We all remember and shall never forget September 11, 2001 and the terrible tragedy of 911.

The Falling Man documentary was very controversial when it cam out and about the real picture by Richard Drew that was published after the attack around the world.

The Falling Man – Richard Drew

The man jumping was unknown at the time and it was Peter Cheney of the Toronto Globe and Mail newspaper that made it his mission to try to find out who exactly he was.

After several days of investigation he finally determined it was Norberto Hernandez (42) a worker from the Windows Restaurant in the WTC.

The official statement from the coroner’s office was that no-one jumped, they either fell out of the windows, or were exploded out from the fire.

Another take on the story can be see HERE.

Don Cherry, Coach’s Corner, ‘I believe Women shouldn’t be in male dressing rooms’ Cherry can’t stay away from controversy

The topic came up on Coach’s Corner last night about women reporters in male sports locker-rooms because of a situation last week when defenceman Duncan Keith of the Chicago Black Hawks made a comment to a women reporter in Vancouver. Other male reporters were suggesting that Keith was being sexist towards Team 1040 reporter Karen Thomson just after their lose to the Canucks at Rexall Place.

Don Cherry always has an opinion

 

As you can see in this tweet, Ron MacLean was not in complete agreement with Cherry. Cherry went on to say, “Equal opportunity, then why aren’t men in women’s dressing rooms?”

To which it came up about the players walking around naked and MacLean didn’t think that would be a good idea for men to be in women’s locker-rooms.

My belief is women shouldn’t even be commentators on male sports broadcasts and yes, I’m in agreement with Cherry. Is that politically correct, no. But it is my belief and they should keep women out of men’s locker rooms, period. There are plenty of women’s sports that need women to cover, and let’s keep them separate.

Was Duncan Keith sexist, not at all. He had just lost a game 3-1, and a women reporter asked if he thought a penalty should be called. All he said was, “We should get you as a ref, maybe, eh?” That does not seem like a sexist remark to me.

Let us know what you think of the controversy?

Smartphones are getting stolen in NYC, now Toronto as well, keep that phone hidden

Toronto, Canada – In New York City, now Toronto, and no doubt around the world smartphones are being stolen in subways, on the street and everywhere.

Not only the theft of the phone is a problem but the use of the phone and the stored data/pass-codes you may have already saved on the smartphone itself.

Unknown to many, there are insurance policies available through the cell phone carriers but the price of $7 per month is very unreasonable.

Are people concerned about these possible thefts? No, most say they are not concerned and are watching, but it doesn’t make much sense, since if they are looking at their smartphones, they don’t really have any idea of what is happening around them.

“I’m confident in myself, and I’m aware of my surroundings so I know when people are approaching me and when they are not,” said Isiah while she was standing at a streetcar stop in downtown Toronto while she typed away on her IPhone.

Is cell phone insurance really worth it?

“I would beat them over the head with it, if someone tried to grab it, and I’ll continue to do it,” said Emily of Toronto.

It’s sadly becoming a trend in Toronto, and most recently there was a crew of thieves who stole smartphones from students at gunpoint at Thistletown Collegiate Institute high school and police were called.

The real concern with smartphones and the protection of the owners is the major providers in Canada do not currently have a database where they can identify cell phones that have been stolen. All a phone thief needs to do is head over to a small cell phone store where they can have the phone unlocked and re-set it, without any concerns of being tracked by the phone serial number, known as IMEI numbers.

The Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA) has expected to create a database to track stolen phones, but that is not expected until the fall of 2013. The reality is people, mostly women are becoming targets of these thefts, and unless they hide their smartphones, these thefts will continue.
