“Women in uniform are already required to tie their hair back in a "conservative" hairstyle. This is no different.”

MarsCydonia on Dec 8, 2013 at 09:08:20

“Well it is different. Agree or disagree with it, the hijab is a symbol.”

“Mercer is just voicing what all of us were already thinking. Sit around the coffee table sometime and ask "so, do you believe the PM?" Conservatives supporters don't want to talk about it, it's so embarrassing.”

“Nazis appropriated another culture's symbol, does that mean it's tainted?

Take back the meaning. Don't let the red poppy become a glorification of war. Running away and making your own poppy colour means you have let down the founders of the red poppy movement.”

“Here's the thing though, I'll bet the photographers were invited along to help turn a routine thing into a PR stunt to make him look better.

Harper decided to put his family out in front of the media. They weren't invading his privacy.”

Brian in Toronto on Oct 21, 2013 at 16:54:49

“Absolutely - if Harper didn't want the media 'tagging along' it wouldn't have happened. The kids could have been taken into the school grounds by limo - Harper obviously wanted the photo-op but was too much of a dullard to know what to do with it. I suppose this is why we now pay for Harper to have a full-time personal photographer who can act as a Director for these staged events and a full time make-up lady so he doesn't look quite so ghoulish.”

RichardSharp on Oct 21, 2013 at 16:27:50

“Point accepted. He didn't repeat that mistake. He's simply too wooden and unconvincing in any public venue. Which is why he's a paper-based control freak”

“What's the average wage in Poland?

Would be an interesting coincidence if it was about 1/3 the average Big 3 employee here.”

“So lucky Poland. They don't have much else so if they want a cell phone company and customers then the price has to reach them. Lets look at Polish wages. Now if you said Germany or Austria I might sit up and listen.”

“Maybe it was written in Europe and the editor goofed? Maybe it's a short-form, long-form mis-translation.

It should probably read $130K million.”

dalethompson on Sep 2, 2013 at 19:44:05

“I don't think it was meant to be $130k, no one writes like that in North America. Simple mistake I suppose in terms of the wording but a huge difference in terms of monetary value.”

So, Levy doesn't think union members are "people"?”

“But the reservoirs bleed off over time. You need pressure from the engine to recharge them.

It gives you time to apply hand-brakes, or stop the train in an emergency, but it doesn't last forever. It gives you a few hours of braking power in the event an engine is shut off.”

“They have reserve air in each car to apply brakes when engine air pressure fails.

But the reserve bleeds off over time.

It's a limitation of the Westinghouse system. It gives you time to go to each car and apply the hand-brake, but if you just shut off the engine and leave, eventually the cars brakes also release.”

“The individual cars in a Westinghouse system have an air reserve to apply the brakes if the engine stops supplying air pressure to keep the brakes off.

But over time (several hours) the individual cars reserves bleed off, releasing the brakes.

It's a limitation of the Westinghouse system. Emerg brakes work great if the engine dies. But it requires an engineer to intervene within X hours (like say attaching a new engine, or applying the hand-brake on individual cars while the engine is repaired).”
