“That continuous accountability, continuously being in the public eye, and that having to be infallible … it puts a lot of pressure on our police officers, and contributes to their mental health.”

Imagine being watched all of the time. What kind of stress would that cause?
A Saskatchewan landmark went up in flames the other day.
Last time I saw the Ecocentre, it had erosion behind it from a spillway, that seemed significant.
Some of these items found in Armstrong’s closet, were to be abandoned on the surface of the Moon.
More than four decades after the Apollo 11 moon landing, a cloth bag full of souvenirs brought back by astronaut Neil Armstrong has come to light.
Among the trove: a 16 mm movie camera from inside the lunar module that filmed its descent to the moon and Armstrong’s first steps on the lunar surface in 1969.
That camera “took one of the most significant sets of images in the 20th century,” said Allan Needell, a curator in space history at the National Air and Space Museum.

“My neighbor, a director (and in his 80’s) is pretty devastated. They just finished a fund raiser for up-grades. It rough when you put so many years into a project and have it go up in smoke in hours. The railway building beside the museum survived unscathed and will probably continue as a limited version.”
UPDATE: The WordPress App for Android is every bit as bad as the recent reviews. I had about 5 photos and some short commentary about how today was lovely without wind, and very sunny, and the WordPress app posted only the title of the blog post.
