remax: P.E.I. out to restore the reputation of the maligned Malpeque oyster - 12/09/08 06:26 AM
The provincial government has set December as "Celebration of the Oyster" month, in the wake of media reports calling into question the quality of Malpeque oysters, once considered among the world's best. Last week, the province called together local media to showcase Malpeque oysters - complete with photo ops of Premier Robert Ghiz slurping them off the half shell. While the Malpeque name still carries weight, the oyster's reputation took a hit recently when some prominent names in the oyster industry singled them out for criticism. Seventy per cent of the Malpeque oyster fishery is wild, and that causes some problems (1 comments)

The trees were thick with ice, electric poles were down across the province and hundreds of Islanders were left in the dark and cold, but Barb Mullally didn't blink an eye when she got the call for aid. As a disaster management trainer and co-ordinator, last winter's ice storm was just the kind of emergency event Mullally has been trained to help handle. She put in 14-hour days helping stranded Islanders as Maritime Electric crews worked to restore downed power lines. And with more than 300 damaged utility poles throughout central and western Prince Edward Island, it took the utility seven (0 comments)

In a dramatic about-face, Ask.com is abandoning its effort to outshine internet search leader Google Inc. and will instead focus on a narrower market consisting of married women looking for help managing their lives. As part of the new direction outlined Tuesday, Ask will lay off about 40 employees, or eight per cent of its workforce. With the shift, the Oakland, Calif.-based company will return to its roots by concentrating on finding answers to basic questions about recipes, hobbies and children's homework.

Housing starts will decline slightly in 2008 for Atlantic Canada after a surge of activity was recorded in the second half of 2007 but the recent trend in activity is forecast to support a greater level of activity in 2008 than had previously been expected.

The price of existing homes continues to close the gap with new home prices, but there is still a good selection of inventory available in the existing market. "This should result in a small decline in single starts in 2008, (0 comments)
remax: Banning the butt: Global anti-smoking efforts - 02/08/08 07:35 AM
Day by day, smoking is becoming a thing of the past in Canada. The number of smokers declines every year, going hand in hand with an increase in efforts by government and health activists to tighten up restrictions on the sale and use of tobacco. Smoking has been banned from most offices for some time, but the bans are now extending to bars, restaurants and other public places. Some cities have banned smoking outright, shutting down separate smoking rooms altogether. The point is stop smoking people.....Live longer, stop wasting money....and 1000 other reasons...
