    Fact of the Day - CANADA DAY Did you know... that Canada Day is a federal statutory holiday and it’s the national day of Canada, celebrating the anniversary of July 1, 1867, when Canada signed the Constitution Act and became a new federation with its own constitution? On this day, the British colonies of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and the Province of Canada were united into one dominion under the name of Canada, and the colonies became the nation’s first provinces. The Province of Canada was divided in the process and renamed into Quebec and Ontario. On June 20, 1868, Canada’s Governor General proclaimed that Canadians should celebrate the anniversary of the confederation. The holiday became a statutory holiday in 1879 and was originally known as Dominion Day. On October 27, 1982, Dominion Day officially became Canada Day, and the new name symbolized a step away from Canada’s colonial past. The year 2017 marks the 150th celebration of Canada Day! Canada Day is celebrated each year on July 1st. If the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the following Monday will be off to observe the holiday.

    Fact of the Day - ASTEROIDS Did you know.... that the first asteroid was Ceres, discovered by Giuseppe Piazzi in 1801? Asteroids are small, rocky objects that orbit the Sun. There are currently over 600,000 known asteroids in our solar system. Most asteroids are found orbiting in the Asteroid Belt, a series of rings located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Asteroids are leftovers from the formation of our solar system about 4.6 billion years ago. Early on, the birth of Jupiter prevented any planetary bodies from forming in the gap between Mars and Jupiter, causing the small objects that were there to collide with each other and fragment into the asteroids seen today.

    Fact of the Day - KARMA Did you know... that Karma is a word that's now globally acknowledged? More than a word, it's a concept. Karma is an action, word or deed that has cause and effect relationship in the spiritual dimension. How is it said to work? Say if you do good today, it will have a positive effect on your future. In simple terms, do good to get good. Otherwise, actions performed with bad motive will lead to "bad karma". This ideology or concept is rooted in Buddhism. Today, it has spread across the world, so much so that, in most Asian countries, karma is associated with rebirth. It is believed that the karma in the past life has determined the quality and nature of present life. This might not be acceptable to all. But karma is not something that can be overlooked. If you recap your life, then you will realize that karma is prevalent at times. Your good actions generate good results, while your bad works follows dark days.

    Fact of the Day - DUST PARTICLES Did you know... that the average person creates 1/3 ounce of dead skin each week? Which is about the weight of a car key. This dead skin combines with other particles to create household dust. While that 1/3 ounce doesn’t seem like much, the average home in the United States collects 40 pounds of dust each year. Many people claim to be allergic to dust, but in many cases they are actually having an allergic reaction to dust mites. These mites eat the dead skin and their dead bodies and fecal matter cause allergic reactions in people. Up to 500 dust mites can survive on just 1 gram of dust. Depending on how small the particle is, dust is capable of staying suspended in the air for up to 5 days.

    Fact of the Day - STAR TREK Did you know... that the vulcan salute is actually a Hebrew blessing? Leonard Nimoy did not create the Vulcan salute that means "Live Long and Prosper" out of thin air for the season two opener "Amok Time," which was the first time we got to see Spock among his people on Vulcan. It was actually borrowed from something he had witnessed as a child when he was attending a service at an Orthodox Jewish synagogue with his family. The hand gesture represents the Hebrew letter Shin, which represents the word Shaddai, a name for God. It looks like a lot of people have been blessing each other without knowing it.

    Fact of the Day - STATUE OF LIBERTY Did you know... that the Statue of Liberty was built by French sculptor Auguste Bartholdi, with the help of tons of workers working ten hour days, seven days a week for nine years? The statue was finally finished in 1884 and presented to America on July 4th. It didn't arrive in the United States until many months later though, because all 350 individual pieces of the statue had to be packed into 214 crates for the long boat ride from France to New York. It was on Bedloe Island that the Statue of Liberty was reconstructed in America - the island is now called Liberty Island and is only accessible by ferry. Auguste Bartholdi thought that the New York harbor was the perfect setting for his masterpiece because it was "where people get their first view of the New World." The statue was to be a symbol of welcome for all immigrants coming to America, as well as a universal symbol of freedom.

    Fact of the Day - JUMPING JACKS Did you know... that jumping jack (Canada & US) or star jump (UK and other Commonwealth nations), also called side-straddle hop in the US military, is a physical jumping exercise performed by jumping to a position with the legs spread wide and the hands touching overhead, sometimes in a clap, and then returning to a position with the feet together and the arms at the sides? The name origin for the jumping jack exercise has sometimes erroneously been identified as World War I U.S. General John J. "Black Jack" Pershing, who is said to have developed the exercise, but in fact the name comes from the jumping jack children's toy, which makes similar arm swing and leg splay motions when the strings are tugged. "Star jump" refers to the person's appearance with legs and arms spread.

    Fact of the Day - KOMODO DRAGONS Did you know... that Komodo dragons are venomous? For a long time, it was believed that a Komodo dragon's bite was so dangerous because of the massive number of bacteria thriving in its mouth. As a scavenger beast, its bite must be filled with the deadly microorganisms of rotting flesh and would infect and kill any victim. The truth, however, was discovered by Bryan Fry, a venom researcher at the University of Melbourne in Australia, who found that the Komodo dragon is indeed one of the few venomous lizards on the planet. It wasn't until 2009 that the decades-long myth of how Komodo dragons kill was finally slayed, and replaced with the truth, thanks in great part to Fry's research. According to National Geographic, "The team found that the dragon's venom rapidly decreases blood pressure, expedites blood loss, and sends a victim into shock, rendering it too weak to fight. In the venom, some compounds that reduce blood pressure are as potent as those found in the word's most venomous snake, western Australia's inland Taipan." Unlike a snake, however, which injects venom into a victim through its sharp fangs, a Komodo dragon's venom seeps into large wounds it makes on an animal it attacks. The animal may escape the grip of the dragon, but it won't escape the venom that will eventually bring it down. By then, the Komodo dragon will be not far behind, tracking down its fleeing victim with its keen sense of smell.

    Looks promising. Yennefer does not look like how I envision her from the books, however. Much will depend on their acting too of course. Cavil does look the part, I'm surprised how it has improved since the first video snip-it. Right now I can only say what a joy it is reading the books. Nothing will surpass them. It can only get a worthy interpretation. I still hope Netflix won't screw it up by silently instilling it with too much of their social justice bullshit. Fingers crossed.

    According to this, it seems like the Final Fantasy 8 Remaster may be getting voice overs in both English & Japanese. I find this very surprising if true. Would have never expected it, but I'd love for it to be true.

    Fact of the Day - JUKEBOXES Did you know... that In 1877, Thomas Edison invented the phonograph, a coin-operated music machine that played music from a wax cylinder? On November 23, 1889, Louis Glass installed a coin-operated phonograph in his Palais Royale Saloon located in San Francisco. It was called "nickel-in-a-slot" because that was the amount of money needed to make a selection. Later, the term was shortened to nickelodeon. In 1906, John Gabel invented the "Automatic Entertainer," a music machine that replaced the wax cylinder with 78-rpm disc recordings and offered several selections of records that could be played. Gabel's Automatic Entertainer dominated the market until the mid-1920s. The jukebox remained something of a novelty arcade item until the invention of the electric amplifier. Without amplification, it was impossible for a large group of listeners to enjoy the music played by the jukebox. When Automated Musical Instruments Inc. (AMI) developed an amplifier in 1927, the popularity of the jukebox surged. It was especially popular in the illegal speakeasies of the Prohibition Era because it provided a cheap form of entertainment. AMI sold 50,000 of its amplified machines in one year, bringing to life the age of the jukebox.

    Fact of the Day - JIGSAW PUZZLE Did you know... that back in 1766, a cartographer (that’s a person who makes maps) glued a map to a piece of wood and cut it up into bits? He then issued a challenge to everyone to try to put it back together — and a craze was born! But jigsaws (the tool that’s used to cut the wood into fancy shapes) weren’t invented until 1873, so puzzles back then were called "dissections" or "dissected puzzles." Most puzzles today are made from cardboard, not wood, because they are cheaper and easier to make, and they come in all shapes and sizes! Jigsaw puzzles can be more difficult for a lot of reasons. When the first puzzles were invented, there was no picture to work from — so often people were guessing at where shapes would go just from the title on the box. Do you think you could put a puzzle together if the title just said "building" or "tree"? Puzzles that have no edge or corner pieces are also considered hard, along with ones that are all the same colour, or that have the pieces cut along colour line (so each piece is a solid colour, and no pieces have multiple colours).

    Fact of the Day - COFFEE Did you know... that people surmise the word “coffee” entered the English language sometime in the 16th century? Apparently, it was borrowed from the Italian word “caffe,” which comes from the Dutch word “koffie,” taken from the Ottoman Turkish “kahve,” which stemmed from Arabic “qahwah.” In North America and a lot of western European countries, Starbucks and other coffee chains have dominated the market because they are providing to the customers a complete experience around coffee. Coffee and friends, coffee and work, coffee and snacks and coffee to go! The Irish mix coffee with whiskey and they call it “Irish coffee”. In Italy the espresso and espresso machine were born and made it the favorite whole-day beverage of Italians. In Greece, there is the “kafenio”, an old fashioned coffee shop for old gentlemen, where they drink Greek coffee and exchange political ideas or they play cards and a board game called “tavli”. Then also, in some countries, like Colombia or Brazil, the whole economy is based in coffee.

    Did you know... that around the time of the Revolutionary War , dueling occurred in every state of the nation ( U.S ) regularly , often for even relatively slight offenses , such as insults , or to resolve gambling disputes ? Few laws prohibited this tradition inherited from the Old World , which continued to evolve . Although no binding set of rules governed the proceedings of a duel in the United States largely , no doubt , because dueling was outside the law , U.S. citizens adopted the European rules from their ancestors .

    Fact of the Day - DUELLING Did you know... that Surprisingly, duels were not usually begun with the intention of murder? All over the world, main focus of duelling was generally gaining “satisfaction” for insulted honor. The idea was that one’s honor was worth risking your life to avenge. Because duelling was frequently forbidden throughout history (though that depended where and when), duels were often fought on a “field of honor,” which was usually a completely isolated area, to avoid witnesses. In the West, they were usually fought at dawn for the same reason. In the 19th century, the Ionian islands of Greece saw a tradition of duelling where the goal wasn’t actually to kill the other person. First, sexually charged insults would be thrown at each other, and soon a knife fight would break out. The first man to slash the other guy’s face and draw blood was the winner, and this earned him the right to spit on his beaten opponent or wipe his handkerchief in his opponent’s blood. It was considered well worth the obligatory arrests and the slaps on the wrist by the local authorities. In ancient Scandinavian culture, a duel was known as holmgang. Traditionally, if a man insulted another, they would meet later for a battle either to death or incapacitation. Because it was a duel, neither could be charged with murder in the aftermath. In Norway, the winner of the duel could claim all of the loser’s possessions—add insult to injury why dontcha? Duels have been fought with all kinds of weapons throughout history. The two most traditional weapons (at least in Europe and North America) were the pistol and the sword. According to several duelling traditions, the person who was challenged to a duel was allowed to choose what kind of weapons would be used.

    Fact of the Day - THE MOON Did you know... that a 95-percent illuminated moon appears half as bright as a full moon? Believe it or not, the moon is half as bright as a full moon about 2.4 days before and after a full moon. Even though about 95 percent of the moon is illuminated at this time, and to most casual observers it might still look like a "full" moon, its brightness is roughly 0.7 magnitudes less than at full phase, making it appear one-half as bright.

    I do not want to be inconvenient, but I would like to ask some questions, were you as an administrator aware that this could happen? If the answer is yes, why did not you do something about it long before it happened? I hope not to be metiche or bother with these simple questions, because I know that kametsu would have been saved if they had taken some measures, since I have seen sites that have lasted years with their downloads, some of them are private sites or private forums. I think if you, as administrator, knew that the downloads might not comply with the DMCA, you could have done something before it happened, but I wonder why you did not.
