If the app immediately closes after you open it, it is because you are rooted or your device fails Google SafetyNet.
To me, the most hilarious thing will be watching this evolve over the next five years or so.
As Uber gets rid of taxi competition and faces pressures to actually make a profit, the fares will go up and up and the amount paid to drivers will steadily decrease. Eventually we'll get to a steady-state of gouging where the maximum price tolerance of customers is established. I would predict Uber prices to end up quite a bit higher than regulated taxi prices, especially in any sort of crunch situation like every morning and evening rush hour, every evening "night on the town" times, and every rain or snowfall.
And wait until people realize that Uber can charge you INDIVIDUALLY. Uber notices that you are willing to pay surge pricing at any time between 8AM and 9AM, because you need to get to work? Guess what, surge pricing is now always on... for you only. THAT'S what the venture capitalists are investing in Uber for - the potential to extract the most money possible from each individual customer according to their relative wealth and relative dependence on Uber.
The amount of whining about Uber price-gouging is going to be outrageous. But this joke will take some time to play out. Have to take the long view here. Wait for it.
EDIT: several commenters don't understand or don't believe in individualized pricing. Uber can already do it, just by declaring one passenger to be in "surge" pricing and another not. No one outside Uber knows what constitutes a surge, so... Uber customers are conditioned to accept it. This is the future of business (not just Uber), like it or not. It's just going to be extra-funny for Uber as people rely so heavily on local transportation.
The underlying system is actually tiered http://osxdaily.com/2014/05/01/how-disable-amber-alerts-iphone/. They likely send it as the presidential alert since that's the only unblockable one
If the service is free, you are the product.
For under $50 you can get a quality VPN that doesn't keep or hand over logs and records, has consistent (as in 100%) uptime, and has connections in dozens of countries in North America, Europe, Asia, etc. All from a taskbar app that lets you also mask torrent traffic, or alternately, directly from your router, to work on your entire home network.
I'd recommend Private Internet Access. You can either do $6/month or get a discounted rate for a longer term.
As an enginerd I'm reluctant to make transport about people 'giving' things, especially 'respect'. That's a story frame that just begs for continued soap opera drama.
"Cyclists". "Drivers". Meaningless tribal war words. Most people just get around the city by whatever mode is most effective that particular trip.
That the city neglects a mode that's cost-effective, healthy, convenient, quick, and high-capacity for short trips because of identity politics is just dumb civil engineering.
Transit Now Toronto is the app you want.
They are the oldest, they were the first to pop up when TTC first started making the data publicly available but didn't tell anyone about it. They've been around since Android 2.
That machine is the largest of its kind in North America, its able to reach up to 18 stories

Here's a Instagram video of a good sized chunk falling for proof. http://instagram.com/p/rjuZhpSvqd/

Folder updated for Tuesday morning
I really like Toronto and everything, but I recently had to move to Europe because my cost of living outpaced my wage after 5 years without a raise. Now I have an apartment twice the size for half the price, can drink 24 hours a day if I want to, have amazing access to culture, history and shopping, fresh fruit, bread and meat shops on almost every corner, I pay 1/4 of what I paid in Toronto for my phone bill, I pay 1/5 for my internet. If I want to buy a house, 300,000 dollars will get me a two bedroom 1200 sq foot fully reno'd condo downtown, or a 4 bedroom house in the suburbs. I earn more, working less and spend a fraction of what I made in Toronto, so I'm curious, how are they deciding these liveability indexes?
The only thing I can think of is maybe the older generations are juking the stats. If you're 36 and over, then Toronto is a great place, because you got in before housing went out of control, and you managed to secure a good job before financial crisis, but Ontario has a 17.1% unemployment rate for youth with a bachelors degree or higher education, and rapidly rising cost of living which is leading to brain drain.
I'm not trying to shit on the city, we have a good safe environment, decent infrastructure, great access to music and activities, and all things considered pretty good weather, but we can't just keep patting ourselves on the back with these "most liveable" city awards because it lulls is into a feeling of false accomplishment where we don't focus on addressing the very real issues that are going on in the city, which seem like they're being completely ignored especially when these articles come out and people say "well, I wonder what people are going to complain about now since we're the fourth best in the world" as though this report invalidates the very real concerns people might have.
Here is a video of me washing my injury
NOTE: the picture I originally posted was taken when my injury was at its worst. It is possible the poor lighting made the injury look more severe (bruising wise) than it was. I do not have a black eye, I'm thinking my eyes were so red due to crying. I don't notice much bruising now, just the road rash from having my face scraped across pavement.
It can and has happened to lots of people with 'common sense' .
Good to carry around one of these though just in case you do need to bust a window
Way to record your calls. I have an Android app that auto-records any call that I make or receive. After each call I get the option to save the recording. It's rare that I need to save them, but it's good to have the option.
EDIT For everyone asking, the app is Call Recorder - ACR
Sorry I'm being pedantic here. In the UK, "the dog's bollocks" usually means something or someone who is extremely good. https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/dog-s-bollocks
The pub definitely isn't the best. They are just bollocks.
Firstly, if you were in the intersection as her light turned green (and you had to be as you were t-boned) she is 100% to blame. The reason is simple and often forgot: Just because the light turns green does not mean you have the right to hit the gas. You are obligated to ensure that the intersection has been cleared.
Vis a vi, if you are turning left and the light turns red, and you are already in the intersection you are obligated to turn and the other cars are obligated to wait until you clear the intersection.
The real issue here is people don't understand how to drive.
Second thing, get a dashcam. I have this one, https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01M28B92C/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1, and cannot say a single bad thing about it.
This is exactly like summer was when I was a kid in the 70s. I remember there was always a 2-3 week stretch in July/August of 30+ and 100% humidity. No AC meant we'd rub some water on our chests and lay in bed praying for a few stray molecules of air to pass over us and cool us down a bit.
Edit: historical data for Ottawa 1977 forward This shows temps 29-38 in July and August, and there was 100% humidity on top of that.
grab one of these and u never have to fucking worry about bags
It is a common misconception that being more north means less heat in summer. The more north you get the longer the days get in summer. There is obviously a point where you get far enough north when it gets cold again, but there is a sweat spot in between where we live. Look at some of heat records for the prairies for example, they are insane. As well, I am into vegetable gardening, nearly all size records come from Alaska thanks to their long days during the summer.
If you look at the amount of daylight in Ecuador(on the Equator), it is 12h6m, while in Toronto it is 15h25m. Toronto 3 hours and 19 minutes more sunlight than a tropical country on the equator.
Or pay 4 cents per bag instead of 2 and get the bio degradable kind. Surely it won't break the bank.
Edit: https://www.amazon.ca/Earth-Rated-Lavender-Scented-900-Count/dp/B008BGRXXM/ if you care to buy from and support a company that gives a shit about the environment rather than Amazon's brand which does not and generally treats their employees like shit.

in winter 2012 temperatures were much higher than they are so far in 2017. it was nearly +20 and sunny for almost the entire month of march.
>The longest warm spell was from January 22 to February 11, constituting 21 consecutive days with warmer than average high temperatures. The month of February had the largest fraction of warmer than average days with 83% days with higher than average high temperatures.
+10 in february really isn't that abnormal at all, much less "creepy" (whatever that means when you're talking about temperatures).
Claws of the Panda: Beijing's Campaign of Influence and Intimidation in Canada
^ Required reading for anyone wanting to learn about China's influence, and our political (and Christian) history with China. It's a VERY boring read, but good to attempt.
TL;DR - A solid mix of corruption, religion, and unchecked diplomacy and a rising CCP has led to extreme influence and manipulation of many nation-states.
The report itself says "in 71% of deaths (91 of 129), some modifiable action on the part of the cyclist was identified which contributed to the fatal collision." Those include cyclist inattention, failure to yield, disregarding traffic signals, loss of control at a high rate of speed, etc. Not necessarily actions involving 'breaking the law.'
The report also states "in 62% of cases (64 of 104) in which the cyclist collided with a vehicle (defined as a motor vehicle, streetcar or train), one or more modifiable actions on the part of the driver were identified which were felt to have contributed to the death." These actions include speeding, inattention, failure to yield, etc.
My takeaway from it is that both sides need to be more careful.
>He said one of the men was clearly upset that he and his friend were mistakenly identified as a gay couple. “I can’t believe we were seen as a gay couple!” one man shouted. He then turned on Yan, with an accusatory tone. “Are you gay?” he asked. “You look pretty gay to me.” Yan, who is not homosexual, turned to walk away when he was grabbed by the hair, punched and kicked to the ground.
This is horrifying. Sounds like textbook "threatened masculinity => gay bashing to prove you're a real man". e.g.
> The results of three experiments demonstrate that physically aggressive displays are part of men’s cultural script for restoring threatened gender status.
Counter point; his family is wealthy.
They MIGHT pay whatever fines our government decides to assign. But more likely, no punishment from either side. No consequences.
The Chinese have been working on manipulating their relationship with Canada for decades.

If anyone wants to dive deep into just how corrupt NBA officiating is, read this book.. Fun read. My attitude towards the NBA totally changed after reading. NBA is the most corrupt major sports body after FIFA IMO.
There's also this funny compilation from 2013 when it was painfully obvious the league and officials were doing everything they could to get the Lakers into the playoffs.

Get yourself some permethrin spray to treat you clothing (This is marketed for horses but it has the same amount of active ingredient as the Sawyer) . When the tick climbs onto you, it will die within minutes. The treatment should last 6 washes/6 weeks.
It's best if you combine that with DEET or Icaridin on your skin.
The feeling of “inevitableness” is part of the strategy google and other data company’s are pushing so we feel helpless to stop them. Stop being helpless and merely accept the digital world the way (and extremely lucrative) Google and Facebook want it to be.
You don’t have to take my word for it. Harvard’s Shoshana Zuboff’s 2019 book The Age of Surveillance Capitalism is a fantastic overview.
I probably would have moved away from her. I'm thinking you must be very shy to put up with that abuse and not speak up or ask people "excuse me, can I get by please?" so you can move to the back. I hope you find your voice and more confidence as you get older. In the meantime, you may want to download the "Safe TTC" app on to your phone. It can be a discreet way to notify that there is a problem. It includes a "Call Police" button.

Hey man we all get discouraged when learning something new.
You should check out this https://www.amazon.ca/Mind-Numbers-Science-Flunked-Algebra-ebook/dp/B00G3L19ZU
The author was terrified of math throughout high school and joined the army after graduating. When she was ~25 she realized the work she was doing was not going to provide her a great future, and she went back to school for an engineering degree. During this time she learned how to overcome her issues, and she's now doing a PHD.
I really liked the book, I got it on Audible but wouldn't be surprised if the library had it :) She covers strategies to deal with solving new problems and also procrastination.
I was thinking about that today while marching, and thought this was awesome. Then I got home and read that there were marches in Prague, Rome, Stockholm, Delhi, Nairobi, Finland, New Zealand, Ghana, Dublin, Tel Aviv and more (the list goes on and on!). That news, combined with the humble beginnings you describe, really blew my mind.
Looks like an interesting proposal
Sorry about the linkedin link - hopefully this is not forbidden.
Hey guys- Here is a link to the Census results on Dropbox. I am SO sorry it took so long- I had to delete my account as someone was sending me threatening/weird messages. I intended to create a new one and upload the results, but I got busy and forgot :(. I didn't remember until my friend texted me about this thread. I am the worst. I totally dropped the ball and I am sorry- I also apologize for the ugliness of the results- SPSS output, baby. I included all the raw data in case someone wants to make a spiffy infographic. Or redo it with better/more questions. TL;DR: I took waaaaaay too long, but here it is. Your forgiveness, please.
I think your best bet would be Waze. They were aquired by Google a while ago and some of the reported incidents are rolled over to Gmaps. Waze has a lot more information though. https://www.waze.com/ I use it and it seems to have a high number of users in the GTA. Perhaps this helps?
I’m currently reading this book and it appears that the reason they backed off the Ontario Hydro plan was because Ontario Hydro hired the lobbying firm that was run by someone in Harris’ inner circle.
I'd recommend Pierre Berton's Vimy for a detailed yet engaging account of what the battle was like for the people involved, and what the victory meant for Canada as a nation.
"The Market Can Remain Irrational Longer Than The Arbitrageur Can Remain Solvent" - Benjamin Franklin / Burton J. Malkiel
A Random Walk Down Wall Street should be required reading in high school.
Just in case anyone here is left functioning to the point where curiosity and knowledge are still considered more valuable than arrogance, this should get you started:
Application for patent (from Swisscom, a major company in Europe) to reduce damage from wi-fi
The health protection agency (UK) is currently collecting data on damage to children through exposure to Wi-Fi (be sure to view the link to the advisory group on non ionising radiation).
A couple points on this:
They measured cultural score by proximity to UNESCO world heritage sites. European cities would win pretty big here. By this metric, North American cities would be at a disadvantage, and there may be more appropriate metric to use.
That said, even though there are a lot of entertainment-type cultural events going on in Toronto, we don't do as well in other areas:
They're often cynical about the competence of governments to spend money wisely. Oscar Wilde's character was right when he called a cynic "A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing."
I like it, Toronto needs more green space and this is a great start. Somewhere to go have a nice picnic by the waterfront, take a nice bike ride around, and would be cool if they had winter activities here too like in the photo gallery. I used to love Ontario Place as a kid, so I hope they have some kid friendly activities such as splash pads and cooling stations.
I suggest everyone do the survey. We could help provide some great insight! I wonder what will happen to the rest of the park
>Use the Weather Network app? Why it's sharing your location with advertisers

You should never use Tor to transfer significant data. It's not designed for that.
You should use a VPN, which usually won't see any actual speed degradation, especially if you pick a good one.
Make sure your VPN does not keep logs, and make sure they don't have a bad reputation. Private Internet Access is the most reputable, with many locations and high speeds.
Oh good grief. This is a ridiculous handout. Love the "fixed" versions. Here's a text friendly one: https://docs.google.com/a/1deerpark.com/document/d/1rQfRSGkfaj-q8FaBccMeYfpwBYrtiJb9G45oP67VtcQ/edit?pli=1
Note, I did not create the rebuttal. Just reposting it.
That is pretty obtuse. The TTC is a mass transit service. Fares are not based on distance, you don't typically get a direct ride, and it allows for multiple passenger groups to share one vehicle.
TTC is also pretty accessible now. Subway stations are the only major accessibility issue left.
Yeah, This should never be okay.

There is probably lots of those companies around downtown Toronto.
Not to be a nazi, but yah, "kick" isn't always used literally. "kicked off" could have a variety of meaning/uses that don't neccesarily involve violence.
Considering that this researched poll released a couple of days ago shows quite a different picture, I call BULLSHIT on the Star for trying to stir the pot.
>For security reasons, the PRESTO app is not supported on rooted devices.
It does install and work without issues, as long as your device is not rooted.
> I'm sure the constituents of the Pride parade was not part of the agenda when BLM-TO was first established. But they expanded their mandate to address this issue when they thought it was important.
The reasons for the protest at Pride fell in line with their agenda and mandate. Systemic and institutional racism with a focus on policing.
> Again, I'm surprised with only so many young Black lives being senselessly lost, you would think this might lead to a similar expansion of their mandate. Seems like a lost opportunity.
They didn't make an expansion in mandate, so it wouldn't lead to a similar expansion.
Do you think that breast cancer groups should expand to focusing on prostrate cancer as well, seeing as prostrate cancer cases have been going up?
Unless they're in Toronto, OH ... in which case they've made a huge mistake
Really, if a thief wants your bike they can get it. I have always had a nice Ulock and still had 2 cheap bikes stolen from my backyard (behind a fence). Yes it decreases the chances, but this is Toronto and shit happens.

While I agree that the green roof will do wonders for the look from outside, I was thinking more from the point of view of someone inside. It's all dark and incandescent yellow inside. Maybe this section will be enough to light the whole structure up. If so, that's awesome and I'll be happy. If not? I'll be disappointed, as it could've been a great idea to put in a platform roof reminiscent of something like this.
People are not frugal enough to search
I have also noticed what you said but most of the time if you see a price difference like that, it is from a third party seller and not Amazon themselves
While Amazon is not always the cheapest, I find that most of the time they do match the price, if not lower, comes with free delivery
For example, the past week I was looking to buy this
I Google their company and guess what $18.95 with free shipping
People need to learn how to search and compare before complaining about their one option they used
Funny you should mention that - I picked up this fascinating doodad that I had originally noticed in a Marriott hotel room and loved it. Ordinarily, I make fun of hotel furniture because they're the artistic equivalent of branflakes - completely tasteless and bland, designed to be inoffensive. This thing, however, turned out to be a very useful piece of kit. If these guys are ever doing a firesale of stuff, I'm going to definitely check out the bedside lamp stuff because they all come with weird stuff like this.
You know, you and I aren't so different.
I too live in Toronto, have Giganews diamond w/VyprVPN, and love tinkering with technology, although I'm not a web developer. The only difference is I control SABznbd+ with an iOS device and it runs on my Mac Pro.
I don't know why that means we have to be enemies. I get that you hate Apple and that can be a frustrating opinion to hold in a place like Toronto where iOS device penetration is so high, but honestly, this shit is unnecessary.
You certainly aren't helping Android in Canada shake it's reputation of a geek or hobbyist OS with stuff like this, just making it worse. As someone who loves iOS but wants to see Android succeed in Canada to overtake RIM, I find that disappointing.
Also, for the record, using the term "sheeple" seriously like that is promoting an idea that the word is intended to ridicule. Just go with "sheep" in the future.
I use the Should I answer app on my phone. You can automatically block calls from poorly rated numbers and read other users' reviews of a number before answering.
I'll be graduating this June from U of T after having studied some "Human-Centric Design" processes and applications. So, I've ended up looking at a lot of things in this city as confusing and poorly made. A classic example are the many doors around the city that have handles that convey the meaning of "PULL" but instead only allow a person to physically "PUSH" them open.
These garbage cans were designed more for aesthetics than for actual use. It excluded a segment of our population (the physically disabled) and didn't take into consideration the reality of snow machines and assholes who will stomp on the metal bars - thus breaking them and rendering the entire object as useless.
Plus, their shape were odd in the relation to the sidewalks as they bulged out forcing people to kind of "dance" away from them. When people had to throw something during the rush hour foot traffic their needing to stop and press down on the metal bar created a momentary blockage, which disrupted the flow of people.
The big black metal bins you see now being put can be considered an upgrade simply because the simpler design is much more intuitive to use and simple to replace if damaged.
If you are interested in this kind of thing I highly recommend reading "The Design of Everyday Things" by Don Norman.
You get to see the World in a much different way and even see how some design choices are poorly made in everyday objects we use.

If anyone out there is a weather nerd like me, try out King City's wind radar:
Snapshot as of 4:20pm for you mobile users:
On the dropdown that says "Base reflectivity" (that's the rain radar), change it to "base velocity 0.0 degrees" (0.0 means ground level)
It will only be able to measure velocity on things that are moving, IE rainclouds. To read the map, the wind is travelling in the direction of blue to red. Beyond that... I'm not really sure how to read these things TBH lol, it's not measuring the absolute velocity of the clouds, but the relative velocity compared to the radar station, and it can only tell the velocity for things moving towards itself or away from itself, it cannot measure velocity of the rain clouds moving parallel past it, it has poor accuracy the closer the objects get to the radar station, but poor resolution the further away they get.

Emergency Medical Services refers to a lot more than just an ambulance. First Responders such as Police, Fire, volunteer responders, First Aid providers, 9-1-1 call takers, Search and Rescue, and lots more, are part of the Emergency Medical Service.
It is important to differentiate Paramedics from an EMS provider. It would be like calling the Police the Legal System. They're part of the system.
Canadian Paramedic magazine did an article called "EMS Must Die" a few months back that does a far better write-up than I could ever do.

I use zenmate, very happy with them. Only issue is they just launched from freeware to subscription basis. Free is fine if you just want US, but I like my UK netflix as well. It's like 70$ for the year otherwise.
Private internet access is supposedly another good one.
Zenmate has worked with both netflix and hulu for me np.
To clarify, yes: It is legal for taxis to stop so long as they are acitvely engaged in picking up or dropping off a fair. City, utility and emergency vehicles likewise get a pass, so long as they are engaged in official business.
It is not legal for any other vehicle to stop in the bike lane, except in emergencies, the exception being dropping off or picking up a disabled person. If you find somebody stopping in the bike lane, yell at them. I have heard many, many excuses for this, but they all boil down to the same thing: They believe that their connivence trumps your safety. It doesn't. It is not OK for cars to park in bike lanes, it is illegal and it endangers cyclists.

Raising property taxes has the same effect as raising interest rates. Demand for home ownership lowers, pushing housing prices lower. Demand for rent rises, pushing rental prices higher.
It's disingenuous to suggest only home owners will be paying the carrying cost. Renters would end up covering a big portion of it too due to the shift in demand for rentals.
It's also disingenuous to say that Toronto has a speculation problem because rent is not high enough to cover carrying costs. Rent is high enough to cover carrying cost unless you took out a big loan. It all depends on rental yields, and rental yields in the city are pretty in line with other major cities in around world:
Beck et al. see which way the winds are blowing and it scares them. Uber and the like will eventually obsolete them, especially in light of stories like this, but like every other dying industry, they will go down kicking and screaming.
What lower income family is going to spend $8,000 to $12,500 at Costco a year?
Costco is great but seriously people it's for higher income folks. Poor people do not shop at Costco. They are not going to do when it's convenient, too.
If you're interested in trying out a round-about in Richmond Hill, there are five located here
I drove through there, it was hilarious, I approached the round-about and yielded as there was another car in the circle.
The other car Stopped right in the middle to wave-me-in. So I'm waving at them to just keep going! .. didn't work so I just waved thanks and proceeded.
There's plenty of these jobs, especially for those with experience. However, even a junior should be able to find something. I suggest talking with an IT recruiter. It's a good way to get your foot in the door.

Pacific Rim set out to be a dumb fun Japanese style monster movie and it succeeded. Not sure why you linked Suicide Squad because Pacific Rim actually had decent reviews - https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/pacific_rim_2013. Pompeii was shit though so I'm not sure why you included that one.

The thing is that there's also legitimate purpose to making the list searchable. Sites like https://haveibeenpwned.com/ serve a public interest in allowing you to determine if your data has been leaked. Ashley Madison shouldn't be able to suppress such services. That said, perhaps the service should require that you authenticate your email address prior to a search.
I have no idea why the sexual orientation of the woman was revealed, as it doesn't seem relevant. Then I see it's Xtra :p
Also the picture is of Sean Gibson and not of the barber. I haven't been to that barber shop before, so I don't know the race of the barbers. But this is more of a religion vs. gender battle it seems.
You can buy reflective fabric tape at MEC specifically designed to put on your clothes and gear.
I cut out strips of tape for my running shorts, tank top, and jacket, and they've lasted at least a year or two of washes. Highly recommend for increasing safety at a low price.
Edit: no longer sold by MEC, but this is what I used: https://www.amazon.ca/Gear-Aid-Tenacious-Reflective-Fabric/dp/B00URO2XY0
