Editors note: There is a photo associated with this press release. Amherstburg is to start its Canada Day celebrations off with its annual Canada Day 5 km run. This patriotic run starts at 9 am just outside of Fort Malden National Historic Site of Canada the headquarters for the British forces in southwestern Upper Canada during the War of 1812 and continues up Laird, around Toddy Jones Park, down Dalhousie and back. The course showcases the spectacular waterfront and is flat, fast and historical. Finishers will be awarded a huge unique Canada D'Eh maple leaf collectors' medal with the likeness of Sir John Alexander Macdonald, Canada's first Prime Minister, featured on it. "This medal is like nothing out there," said race director Chris Uszynski. "It is like an open source medal, a Canadian honour that Runners get to vote on who to feature on next year's medal. It could be Commander Chris Hadfield, Rick Mercer, Sarah McLachlan, Wayne Gretzky, or Stephen Lewis. All of whom are worthy examples, but it's the runners' choice and I can't wait to see who they pick." American runners are flocking to this event to celebrate with their Canadian neighbours. The winner of the run will win their weight in maple syrup! Now that is Canadian! Runners will also receive Canadian maple leaf red and white sublimated technical running socks. After the run, runners can enjoy the ice cream festival. A family friendly event that includes free activities, food court, entertainment and ice cream. A fireworks display will be the finale to a spectacular day. Proceeds of the race go to benefit the Amherstburg River Lights Winter Festival. Participants are asked to raise money through online pledge forms and donations.
MANASSAS, Va. (WUSA) Wind gusts caused a two alarm fire to spread to three buildings within minutes at a complex near Sudley Manor Dr. and Seymour Rd.Prince William County firefighters had to abandon their efforts fighting the fire from the inside of the buiding. It began near the middle of the row on the ground level."As the fire progressed it was up over top of the roof," said Christine Fox, a neighbor who called 911. I was afraid it was going to go over and hit the neighboring community."No one was hurt but six families are now displaced, including Jesus and Nerissa Angeles. The fire spread so quickly, he couldn't get back inside."I know the whole house is ruined," he said while standing next to his wife, who was not home when it happened."I'm just happy that my husband and my dog are alive," said Nerissa.Firefighters said they had to adapt to the wind quickly. When they used a ladder and buckets to extinguish the fire from the outside of the building, they could not risk having men climb up the ladder."With the wind like this, and we have to factor in our operations and tactics," said Battalion Chief John Shiflett. "In this case, the fire got ahead of us. into the walls and into the attics with heavy winds just blowing both ways."Firefighters are still investigating the cause and the Red Cross is assisting the displaced families.Fairfax NewsHelp for parents with mental health issuesVA County Supervisor request reimbursement for unaccompanied minorsMan struck by vehicle in Va. diesMan exposes himself on Va. sidewalkMan dies after being pinned underneath SUVCheap Nfl Jerseys Authentic
The Electronic Privacy Information Center states that current notions of privacy are based on two concepts: obscurity and confidentiality. The latter is of concern to law makers and activists, as the former can be implemented easily using current technologies, including using multiple email addresses, blocking pages from being included in search engines and using multiple IP addresses. Confidentiality is harder to obtain, however, as more and more personal data is stored in the "cloud," radio frequency identification (RFID) chips are built into credit cards and transportation passes and a generation grows up less inhibited about sharing personal information in social networks and in blogs. Governments and policymakers have struggled, in the United States and the European Union, with how to legislate Internet privacy in a way that balances the rights of their citizens and national security. University of California lawyer Philip J. Weiser states that "Ultimately, the old models of regulation . are doomed to fail in a dynamic environment." The future of Internet privacy, however, is dependent not only on creating new types of legislation, but also taking into account how young people growing up with the Internet view the concept of privacy. Your life is being lived in public, whether you choose to acknowledge it or not." Because of this underlying belief, young users are less inhibited about posting and archiving details of their lives online. Nussbaum isolated several themes in how young people have integrated Internet transparency into their daily lives, including the idea that the individual is responsible for his own "PR," having a "thicker skin" regarding web interactions, and that a searchable record of their lives is not, by definition, at odds with the idea of privacy. These changing ideas about what is reasonable to expect, in terms of privacy, are ones that must eventually come to the forefront of future privacy discussions.
