Climb the Lions Gate Bridge

Would you take things to new heights and climb the Lions Gate Bridge?

A local Vancouver based resident Kevin Thomson, operator of Legendworthy Quest Inc. has proposed a business opportunity to the provincial government who have released a notice of intent for this operation.  This would be a guided tour and an opportunity to climb the Lions Gate Bridge to view the spectacular scenic views of our West coast region.

The tours would be a pricey cost of $200- $300 and would take climbers on the maintenance ladders inside the towers of the bridge. Once you get to the top there is a platform that you can stand on, to soak in the historic 1938 built bridge. The Lions Gate bridge consists of three lanes and the bridge is 5,981 feet long, and the height of 364 feet above water.

The provincial government supports Legendworthy and reports that they’re “uniquely qualified and has the very specialized expertise” for bringing the public to the top of the bridge. They’ve designed and developed safety support systems and emergency response protocols for this hopeful attraction.

 “Legendworthy has provided all details of the processes and procedures required to safely and effectively operate an adventure tourism business specific to the Lions Gate Bridge, including but not limited to the design of engineered plans, endorsement of required waivers, securities, safety plans, construction plans, and other risk mitigation strategies,” – (Notice of Intent)

 

 

 

Even though nothing is set in stone and a lot of details are needed to be worked out,  before this attraction can host climbers. The operation date is hope to begin as early as this July, aiming to attract 50 to 60 people a day. Time will be limited at first with less climbers per day. All climbers will have a training session and suitability testing.

Are you excited for this? It can’t be any worse than bungee jumping or skydiving right?

New Starbucks Blonde Espresso

Since 1975, Starbucks only had their signature roast espresso. It has been the essential taste to all of their handcrafted beverages. Up until yesterday Starbucks locations across Canada are now able to enjoy their new Starbucks Blonde Espresso Roast that they’ve added to their selection. This is a complete alternative flavour than the original. The new espresso offers a lighter roasted flavoured coffee and sweet flavour with a smooth creamy taste.

Anthony Carroll who is one of the specialist of Starbucks Coffee who was part of the team that created the new espresso. It is described as being a unique blend of Latin American and African coffee beans that have been roasted to bring out the lighter side of espresso. So, if you aren’t a fan of the bitter taste of regular espresso, the new Blonde Espresso is an option that offers smooth subtle flavours that anyone can enjoy.

“With our signature Starbucks Espresso, the caramelly roast comes through in the beverage while Blonde Espresso is a sweeter, gentler flavour. It’s a great way to invite new espresso drinkers to try our beverages, while also offering our seasoned coffee drinkers a way to experience our beverages in a new way.” – Anthony Carroll (Starbucks Coffee Specialist

Starbucks serving Ice cream and Coffee!

The famous coffee chain, Starbucks is yet again trying something new and out of the box. If you thought that the icy frappuccino’s they offer are good, well now they are serving ice cream. Coffee and ice cream separately are amazing, now imagine combining them together, Starbucks has. Starbucks will be testing serving ‘Affogato’, which is an Italian-style dessert. Affogato is known as a scoop of ice cream that is “drowned” in a shot of hot espresso. Sounds heavenly.

Here’s the full list of new affogato-inspired offerings at Starbucks locations:

  • Classic Espresso Affogato: Two shots of espresso poured over vanilla ice cream.
  • Starbucks Narino 70 Cold Brew Float: Cold brew poured over vanilla ice cream.
  • Starbucks Narino 70 Cold Brew Malt: Cold brew blended with ice cream, malt and chocolate bitters.

The new addition is being test in 10 Reserve coffee bars in D.C., Los Angeles, Chicago, Maryland and Boston, and 100 Starbucks stores in the Orange County, California, area. Hopefully soon coming to Canada, because us Canadians are obsessed with our Starbucks as well. This will be ultimate reason to always chose Starbucks coffee, daily.

High Speed Train from Vancouver to Seattle!

If you are one of the many people who loves taking trips down to Seattle for Seahawks games, or tax free shopping sprees in Portland, there may be a quicker way to get there in the near future. This will all be possible if this new project for a high speed train gets approved. The train would link Vancouver, Seattle and Portland together and cut down the travel time of 3 hours to 1 hour. Washington Governor Jay Inslee has proposed a $1 million study in his 2017-2019 budget to study the feasibility of this project. The High speed train is defined by going as fast as 250 miles per hour, or 400 kilometres per hour.

Some of the reasons that support this proposal are:

  • This area is geographically perfect for a train of this sort.
  • The train would link three large cities that allows for easier transportation between them.
  • As for the economy, this would allow growth for businesses, because it brings more people traffic to these areas.
  •  This would add as a good alternative to congested highways and full airports.

And the thoughts against this decision:

  • Cost is a big one, as this project will need a budget of billions of dollars.
  • This will be a large project and the train will need sufficient space.
  • Environmentally wanting to avoid of running train through the Cascadia Region.

The report needs to be completed and presented to the legislature by December, 15 2017.

“The freeways are full. The airports are full, he said. So you’re looking at those capacities, thinking, well if we’re going to continue to grow, then we’re going to have to come up with a better way.” – Mark Hallenbeck is the director of the Washington State Transportation Center —Interview with Global BC

Here’s an idea of what you can expect this to look like.

New Netflix Controversial Trailer ‘Dear White People’ receives huge backlash

Netflix debuted this new controversial trailer for the new spin off series of Dear White People, which is also called Dear White People. The 2014 movie told a similar story of the lives of several black students at a predominately white college, while tackling racial stigmas. In the trailer of the Netflix series the protagonist Samantha White broadcasts on her campus radio show a list of acceptable Halloween costumes: “Pirate, slutty nurse, any of our first 43 presidents. Then going to the top of the list of unacceptable costumes: Me,” she says and a bunch of photos of fellow students from the college show up with all of their faces painted black.

This trailer has received a huge amount of back lash, but this was expected since the original movie had similar attention. However, the trailer captures the humor of the original film, and may be liked just as much as the movie was.

Simien responded to the huge outrage on Facebook and in an interview with ET online, noting he’s faced this before after the first trailer for the movie was released.

“But now, I feel strangely encouraged,” he continued. “To see the sheer threat that people feel over a date announcement video featuring a woman of color (politely) asking not to be mocked makes it so clear why I made this show. I want those who are chronically unseen in the culture to feel seen. And I want those willing to extend empathy to experiences unlike theirs to understand their humanity more deeply.”

The show will feature the same characters as the movie, though the cast includes both new and past performers. Justin Simien expressed the he is not creating any racial divides with his series.

“I’m not the first artist to use a misnomer as a title and I reject any notion of ‘causing a divide’ simply by stating that one exists. Which is my role as artist. To state what is. But if facts and common sense can not wake us up from our delusions and distorted ways of seeing, what can?” –  Simien

The series will premier this year on April 28th.

Haters Unite with this Dating App

Most dating apps rely on first impressions, physical attraction or mutual interests. This new app that was launches officially today Wednesday Feb.8th, and the unique thing about it is that matches people together by the things that they hate and simply cannot stand.

The developers behind Hater and the founder Brendan Alper argue that people are brought closer by complaining and debating against the things they hate most rather than by discussing their favourite hobbies. Seriously though, who doesn’t love a good debate?

How it works

Users of the app are asked about a variety of subjects, whether they dislike, “hangovers”, “the rent being too high”, “Cargo pants”, or even the infamous topic of “Donald Trump”.

They can then swipe through to see if their dislikes match their potential dates, just like the dating app Tinder.

The developers of hater have expressed that the app isn’t meant for the nasty hating and want to stress that the app is meant for the petty haters and used for more for the concept of being an icebreaker.

“Dating is supposed to be fun. Somewhere along the line, dating apps lost sight of that. Hater wants to bring it back.” -Mr. Alper told the The Times

Haters gonna Hate, right?

This Rim Roller can help you with your Tim Horton’s Coffee.

Tim Hortons’ beloved Roll Up The Rim To Win contest is everyones favourite coffee game. Canadians everywhere are using every chance they can get to consume as much coffee in the day in hopes to get better odds and win. You can win free coffees, donuts, cash and the grand prize is a car!

Rolling up the Rim of a Tim Hortons coffee has become a annual ritual for most. So much so, that there is a proper way to roll up your rim of java. Here’s a how to.

This was suppose to be ‘The Best Way’ to roll up a rim, and everyone knew this would make your life easier. You didn’t have to use your mouth, you simply just squeeze your cup in half and roll with two thumbs to find out if you won or not. This made it more hygienic than using your teeth or mouth to tear up the cup to see if you won.

Despite the brilliant and easy way us Canadians have been settling with. I just discovered this episode on season three of Dragon’s Den. Where Ottawa-based inventor and manufacturer Paul Kind tried to pitch his Rimroller™ for the first time. This device helps you Roll up the Rim of your coffee without having to touch it. I don’t know how anyone has lived without this small keychain device. It’s brilliant! I don’t know why the Dragon’s passed on the pitch.

This product makes it easy to check for prize statements hidden under the rims of paper coffee cups in various contests. Essentially a curved clip with two integral (covered) blades, it slices the cup rim twice (1-1/8″ apart) when pushed down, and an internal lip unrolls the paper edge when it’s pulled up. Push, pull and you’re done. 2″ high, 1-1/2″ wide, with an attached split-ring. – www.leevalley.com

Here’s a video of the device in action.

The Rimroller™ retails for $2.95 each or $2.35 each.

BC Lions 2017 Schedule!

The CFL have released the 2017 football schedule. This seasons schedule will be on weekends only so anyone who has the weekend off, this is good news for you! The BC Lions will play all nine regular season home games on Fridays and Saturdays with a variety of start times, early as 4pm starts and some 7pm start times. Fans should be happier this year knowing the Lions won’t play any games on Wednesdays or Thursdays this year.

“We’re quite pleased with the schedule and we believe our fans will be as well. Many have expressed a desire for us to get more Saturday dates and we’ve been successful in doing so this year. We have also added later start times to two of our Friday night games to allow fans more time to get down to BC Place.” – Lions VP of business George Chayka.

BC starts the season at home against the Edmonton Eskimos, then head out to face three consecutive games in the East. After the 3 game long stretch away games the Lions will alternate home and away for the rest of the year, with the exception of the back-to-back home games against Hamilton and Ottawa on September 22 and October 7.

 “The schedule this year has a number of benefits for the club. Playing three consecutive games in the east early on will help us to come together as a team and remove significant travel in the backend of the season.” – GM and head coach Wally Buono.

Here is the 2017 BC Lions Schedule, which you can also view online on their website.

Save On Foods Delivery

Grocery shopping is one of those weekly errands you inevitably need to run, but always seem to dread. Well, i’ll have to admit I am one of those people. I’ve figured out a couple of tricks though that help to make the time spent much more efficient. For example, not showing up to the grocery store hungry, because then you just buy all the unnecessary items that you never needed. However, Save On Foods has topped any great idea I could ever come up with.

You can now get groceries delivered to your door by using Save On’s new online delivery service.

How it works

This service should be called Grocery shopping for dummies, because they’ve made it so easy! You simply go online on their website, create an account, go through their online aisles and pick items from, fresh produce, dairy, meats, and frozen and then put through your order. Voila, it’s that easy.

Some of the perks to shopping online are that, once you’ve used this ordering system your favourites are saved, also recommendations can be given as well as a personalized shopping list can be set up. Another benefit is you can chose whether you want to pick it up or get it delivered, so you know what this means, you never have to wait in a line up again! Now that is something to be excited about. And lastly, even though their is a service charge for delivering that fluctuates depending on what time you order, any deals that are in store are also available online.

So this service basically the same thing as going into a store and something you can take advantage of now that you have the option. Get your groceries delivered to you when you physically can’t leave your house, or if you forgot something and don’t feel like going back, or whether you are just plain and simply lazy.

Why not, take advantage of it.

You can speak to your remote with Shaw’s new TV experience!

If you don’t know what to watch on TV? Don’t worry you can now ask your shaw box.

Shaw Communications has brought a new service to Vancouver customers, viewers can now search for shows by talking to their TV.

This new system is called BlueSky TV, which features a new voice-activated remote control system. This marks the first system of this type in Canada. Last month the Calgary was the first province to start this and it is now being introduced here in Vancouver as of last Wednesday.

The Blue Sky TV allows Shaw viewers the ability to look for shows by simply saying a keyword or a phrase. It could be the title of the show or the name of the actor. So if you can’t seem to find out what to watch, you can simply ask the TV to give you some suggestions, and it displays recommendations based on your viewing history.

Just when you think technology isn’t going to advance any further, someone thinks of the next genius thing and everyone wants it. Or should I say needs it.

Who’s going to get this latest device? I know I am thinking about it.

 

The sky is the limit, you can have Dinner in the Sky

If you think that having dinner in the sky is way out of reach or so far fetched. Well think again, this dining experience will have you strapped in to a table that is lifted 150 ft in the sky.

Dinner in the Sky originally started in Belgium, but has now reached 40 countries around the globe. It allows you to have a unforgettable experience 150 feet high in the air. This summer will be the first time Dinner in the Sky reaches Vancouver. Imagine our breath taking scenery that you can view from a crane.

Dinner in the Sky isn’t just for the evening you can also buy tickets to enjoy brunch and lunch, as well as different options for dinner. The event will be in Vancouver during this upcoming summer in July.

Tickets for Dinner in the Sky are available now, and start at $296.31 for brunch, $296.36 for lunch, and $399 for dinner.
