    Great post, @Don 🐝 Kerr! I love the fervor with which you penned it - it shines through loud and clear. I grew up in the tundra that is Northern NY, which is currently buried under almost 3 ft of snow thanks to the wonders of Lake Effect. So, I hear you. And I feel for my family who still live there. Dressing like Nanuk of the North to simply go out and get the mail is not my idea of fun. Although, I have come to tolerate the winter a bit more than I used to. Living in New England, the winter is temperamental. Like this morning with a blustery 1 degree - so cold that I can gauge the temperature of the day by the reaction of the leaves on the rhododendron bush. They are curled up so tightly this morning I know it's cold. I don't ski or snowmobile and I haven't been on a pair of ice skates in years. But, I do enjoy sliding down a hill from time to time and making the occasional snow angel to keep my spirit young.

    I live in a cold weather area, when I was younger it was fun, now that I am into my 57th year of this I have to admit, it not too fun anymore but I know it is necessary. It starts in fall, when all the trees go dormant, at this time of year I would not want to live any other place, it is breath taking. I have experienced this for 57 years an I still find it spectacular. Then winter comes, shorter days, cold nights, it seems to last forever. When the first bud of spring announces itself, everything comes alive and with such vengeance, the smells, the sights, the sounds, wonderful, all of it. Spring and summer doesn't last long, it seems not as long as winter but we enjoy, embrace, love every single day, winter helps us to enjoy when it's nice.... and savor every moment

    Ok... this is gonna be unpleasant. I don't know why I'm compelled to share this, but if you have a weak stomach, stop reading here...

    Don, my least favorite winter accessory is the stalactite-like snotsicle that adorns my face from November through April. By the end of winter, it has become so long that it presents a tripping hazard.

    Told ya. Shoulda stopped reading...

    On a less gross side note, I have a pair of Sorrels too. Best made, most durable boot ever. Mine are over 20 years old and still in great shape.

    Your kid with glasses looks like he is flipping winter the bird. My seasonal sentiment exactly.

    #33 Speaking of which: @Milos Djukic got at least one negative [ - ] vote for having the audacity to support a position that is not exactly popular among the aficionados. Glad to see that it got "recitified", tho the backstory still remains something of a mystery.

    beBee's plus/minus Comment Rating thing is a bit flawed and inconsistent, in any case:

    A published Article can receive a "plus"/Like vote (a la [ Relevant ], never mind whether it actually is "relevant") - but not a negative vote. And beBee will tell you who-liked-it.

    Not so for Comments. You can Like or Dislike, and never take responsibility for your rating. Interesting that this Secrecy Technique is used in the Comments section, where the whole point - supposedly - is to express your opinion and have a vibrant, open exchange. Yet the rating is anonymous. Go figure....

    In addition - the Plus [ + ] and Minus [ - ] votes cancel each other out. A Comment on which there is a vigorous difference of opinion (let's say 10 positives and 10 negatives) appears the same as a yawner with no votes.

    Anyhow, Milos, glad to see that you made it back to zero. It's how we measure progress.

A July 2016 Brookfield Institute Report is one example http://brookfieldinstitute.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/The-State-of-Canadas-Tech-Sector-2016-V2.pdf Couple that with education, demographics and a different attitude to media (while Canada's media can vastly improve, American news media pails in comparison with depth/diversity of news story coverage) and then there is the case for Canada, articulated by media outlets such as Vox in their July 2016 story http://www.vox.com/2014/7/1/5843316/the-case-for-canada - and where American media like Vox succeeds, Canadians with a greater degree of connection have more access options and engage commensurately at a higher rate (rural areas are still lagging) as detailed by CIRA (Canadian Internet Registration Authority) making Canada 2nd to the UK in the G9 country ranks for Internet penetration https://cira.ca/factbook/2015/the-canadian-internet.html Close

    #23 Sheesh, "Pablo" ... pissy much? (How un-Canadian)
    "Stating either position as a "fact" is delusional." sez @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian

    The observable "fact" is that there is a demonstrably high (as in Super High) correlation between being-an-ambassador and priming-the-pump in the form of publishing activity, s.a. Articles, Comments, Shares, etc. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/priming-the-pump No, "Pablo", that set of observations is not delusional. Count them yourself. Or just eyeball it. It's obvious. And it's [ relevant ] - even in a beBee sense.

    'Ambassadors' are selected precisely BECAUSE they contribute to beBee marketing (I didn't invent this observation. It's stated clearly and repeatedly throughout beBee's ambassadorship marketing material). Does receiving 'ambassadorship' increase the likelihood of such contributions? Is there a behavioral pattern here? Decent questions, imo, but apparently not popular ones in this environment. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/the-emperor-s-new-clothes-epilogue So let's move on.

    Yeah, "Pablo" : Egg-vs-Chicken, if that works for ya. I'll go with Ducks-in-a-Row.

    The answer is quite simple. The U.S. election generated a lot of hot air from the north. That's why it's still 60 degrees Fahrenheit in Chicago.

    #23 @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian the high ratio of Canadian ambassadors is due to high Canadian activity and commitment

    #21 Talk about back-asswards. As usual, John you're getting your egg vs chicken thing going.

    Is Canadian activity high because of the high ratio of Canadians among ambassadors?

    Or, is the high ratio of Canadian ambassadors due to high Canadian activity?

    There is no way to tell. Stating either position as a "fact" is delusional.

    I don't really care one way or another, just sayin'. Either way, us Canucks seem to be pulling our weight and then some.
