Hire Organ Donor Transplant Doctors

Saskatchewan has a big problem in our health care system. The last Premier, Wall, promised to do something about this, but nothing got fixed. Premier Moe may be too busy picking a fight with B.C. to ask his Health Minister(s) to hire a small team of doctors to ensure donor organs are collected and given to people waiting on donor lists so they can be healthy and rejoin the workforce and have full lives again.

“SaskAdvantage” is on the sign driving into the Regina Bypass highway tangle east of the capital city. If you’re sick on an organ donor waiting list in Saskatchewan, you’re at a definite SaskDisadvantage because our Health Minister isn’t getting the job done for you.

Reporter Was Right Before

When someone is correct multiple times about major events, it’s worth hearing what they have to say about the latest unfolding.

Trump’s Presidency is crumbling, and if Americans wake up, it won’t last long into next year.

Went to Winnipeg

I went to Winnipeg on the weekend. A car rental was less than $70 for 4 days. While there I witnessed a U-Haul van driver gently crash into the car in front of him after I had waved him into the flow of traffic in my lane. I guess if I hadn’t waved him in, he’d have hit me instead.

I also got sick with a cold, and couldn’t do half of the things I wanted to see while there.

Up Is Down In Moe Town

SaskPower’s 2016-17 annual report, released last summer, states, “We will see our emissions profile rise slightly until 2020.”

Husky Might Be Fined

Husky has only been charged now by the Crown, for a spill nearly 2 years ago. Federal charges may be pending too. The provincial charges carry a possible fine of only $1M. Great deal for an oil company, to operate and ruin the water supply of Saskatchewan’s 3 largest city and many other people too.

A report from the province is being delayed until after a possible appeal, making it many years since the spill until others can learn important details and possibly solutions.

Here’s a blog post from way back about the spill.

Miami Bridge Collapses

Why did the ABC bridge have its pivot supports removed before the overhead support cables visible in the finished design were installed?

Community gathers to watch 950-ton bridge move across Southwest 8th Street

Leonor Flores ’98 is a project executive and one of 63 FIU alumni who work for MCM, the construction firm building the FIU-Sweetwater UniversityCity Bridge, which will further connect FIU and its northerly neighbor, the City of Sweetwater. She was excited to share her work with her family, especially Michelle, who is interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) in school.

Michelle said she might want to follow in her parents’ footsteps and go to FIU when the time comes, and that it was fascinating to see her mom’s work in action. “I’m interested in the architecture and the design of the bridge, and the math portion of it,” she said.

Said Leonor: “It’s very important for me as a woman and an engineer to be able to promote that to my daughter, because I think women have a different perspective. We’re able to put in an artistic touch and we’re able to build, too.”

The pedestrian bridge, which crosses Southwest 8th Street at the 109th Avenue intersection, will provide a safer crossing of the eight-lane thoroughfare for the 4,200 FIU students living in Sweetwater. Between its walkways and plazas, it will also provide 9,900 square feet of gathering and event space
