Earl’s Campus , 8629 112 St., 408-3914: An Edmonton institution with a broad middle-of-the-road menu usually fortified with a few elegant offerings. Busy place though: go early if you’re attending an event at the Jube. Overall rating: HHH Four Rooms Edmonton Centre, 426-4767 — Hip yet comfortable dining room(s) serves a goodly selection of appetizers, specifically designed with the intention of allowing patrons to experiment/share in a controlled manner. Perfect before taking in a downtown art event with friends. Scooby picks include Potstickers, Satay Skewers and the Tibetan Stir-fry. Overall rating: HHH Dadeo Restaurant 10548A-82 Ave., 433-0930— Okay, I realize that Dadeo serves mainly the one cuisine (Cajun/ Creole/ southern), but it’s under eclectic cause it’s so darn cool and one of the perpetual highlights of the Whyte scene. A visit to this 50s era railroad-style diner isn’t complete without a chicken Po’Boys or a hearty Combo Fabio (the St. Louis ribs/fried chicken combination plate). Overall rating: HHHH Luna Loca across from University Hospital on 112 St. and 84 Ave.: An instant Scooby Review Gang favourite. Casual service, good selection of upscale soups, entrees and desserts and fair trade coffee in a funky minimalist setting.…
About the Company The design of this superior hunting weapon comes as a result of more than 19 years of research and development. Aspen longbows actually started in 1980 as Monarch Longbow Company which was the creation of bowyer Byron Schurg. Chris Landstrom joined the business as an apprentice bowyer in 1988. Byron’s good friend Monty Moravec purchased the business in 1990. Monarch grew and prospered with the help of Byron who acted as a design consultant and part-time bow builder and with Chris who was the lead bow maker. In 1995, the business was again sold and Byron decided to found the Aspen Longbow Company and was joined once again by Chris who has opened a second shop in the Midwest this past fall to help keep up with production. The Design Aspen Longbows are unparalleled in smoothness and cast. The unique reflex/deflex design provides exceptional speed with little or no hand shock. The handle is dished in three places so that your hand grips the bow the same way each time you pick it up. The arrow shelf is radiused and the sight window is cut close to center and radiused as well.…
Are you an archer? What are the best longbows?
Our Longhunter longbow has won more World longbow Championships than any other longbow on or off the market (there are hundreds of them). When we started producing the deflex/reflex design, we were the only one making them out there. Now, many of the longbow manufacturers have tried to copy this longbow but few, if any, have achieved its performance. Traditionally, the deflex/reflex design goes back about as far as longbows have been made and shot.It is shown on a cave drawing in Spain that is believed to be the oldest drawing in existence. Our deflex/reflex longhunter is free of hand-shock, smooth drawing, fast and quiet among other longbows for sale in US and abroad. The Longhunters equal or exceed the performance of some of the most expensive custom longbows on the market today. If you haven’t shot the Longhunters, you don’t know how good a longbow can shoot. The Longhunters come in two models: Bamboo and Red Elm. We were pioneers in learning to use the fast-flight string on traditional longbows and were able to overcome those problems experienced by other longbowyers. By doing so, and by understanding exactly how a fastflight string behaves differently from a dacron string, we were able to design longbows that are much more efficient.…
Private Education ISSUES
The more I become involved in the private school accreditation issue, the more fascinated I become. Accreditation as I was led to believe, was originally conceived to be a tool to strengthen and to improve education by using the peer review process. However, it is now being used as a tool to: Determine eligibility of institutions to receive financial assistance.
Assist in determining eligibility for schools seeking to enroll alien non-resident students through the US Department of Justice’s Office of Immigration and Naturalization Services.
Determine eligibility of postsecondary institutions involved in teacher education programs.
Determine length and quality of teaching experience for teachers seeking to transfer from private schools to public schools.
Determine credibility of students’ records when they transfer from private schools to public schools.
Determine eligibility of schools seeking charters in the National Honor Society.
Determine eligibility of schools seeking to participate in corporate/matching gift programs.
Provide parents with a “good housekeeping seal of approval”.
Provide leverage in civil rights or politically correct enforcement activities.
Determine eligibility for private schools to participate in high school activities association-related activities, e.g., band, athletics, forensics, etc.
Whatever its function or purpose, accreditation is assuming a more visible role as public policy makers seek to improve education.…
Garlic Insect Repellent
Phil Adkins only wanted a way to stop his employees from dripping chemicals all over his farm. He was disgusted with wasting expensive pesticides. He was determined to both save a dollar and elevate safety. On HIS farm. What he invented – Empty Clean – was so efficient and so needed that Adkins is now responsible for elevating safety and alleviating waste on farms in three countries. Empty Clean, in fact, works so well that in 1993 Agricultural Engineering Magazine named it one of the Outstanding Innovations in Product or Systems Technology when it compiled its list of the Top 50 Contributions to Agriculture. Not bad for a first-time inventor who only wanted to find a better way to empty and clean pesticide containers. “Mainly,” Adkins says, “the people working for me were wasting too much chemical and not getting the containers clean.” So he started tampering with the process. Before Empty-Clean, the workers opened the pesticide container, climbed on top of the sprayer, and poured it in. “They were spilling it all over their shoes and everywhere else,” he says. Empty-Clean eliminates much of the hands-on work with pesticides. “It takes the chemical out of the container and puts it in the spray vehicle,” Adkins explains.…
There are several fundamental decisions to make when deciding to PC WiFi HotSpot network your computers. If you want the “easiest” way to network your home computers, see the next FAQ. If you want to do this yourself, you should browse through our hardware section. You’ll note that there are several subsections for each of the main technologies now being used or talked about for networking home computers: ethernet, phone wire, WiFi and AC wire. But, in fact, for now, you can really put those in two categories. The first you might think of as “tried and true” and that’s the ethernet technology. This has been around for a while, mostly for business use. But that time in the “technology curve” has dropped prices considerably and allowed outstanding performance to come to the home for a few dollars. If you are networking computers in the same room, we recommend you don’t hesitate to go the wifi PC hotspot route. Look at our reviews for some of the major manufacturers’ kits that will help you get up and running in no time. If the computers are in different rooms or floors of your house, ethernet can be difficult because it does require a wire to run between the computers.…
Palm Tree Disease
Any gardener who vacations in California is usually enthralled by our palm trees, more so when they see them thriving so well in the chilly, clammy climate of the Bay Area’s decidedly less-than-tropical summer. The matched sets of Phoenix canariensis recently transplanted on upper Market Street and on the Embarcadero medians (running all the way, now, to the Caltrain station) have added unimagined elegance to San Francisco thoroughfares. Small wonder the palm is once again becoming an option as a garden tree. Small palms are easy to find in nurseries that carry a good selection of containerized trees. Larger palms are usually brokered or sold wholesale through landscapers, dug up from old homesteads around the Southwest, then shipped and replanted with their tidy small rootball. That palms are easily transplanted is obvious from the City’s trees: of the hundreds planted in the past four years, only a handful have had to be replaced. But all this moving of palms appears to have a price. The fly in the ointment, the worm in this apple of apparent paradise, is actually the white, wormy grub of a flying insect pest known as the giant palm borer.…
What is Wi-Fi? It is actually a name or I would say a trademark of wifi partnership, and its full form is wireless fidelity, which is started in 1985. The device is popular due to its connectivity, it doesn’t need a cable to connect, just wifi router will be enough. Wifi empowered gadgets: Mobile phones, laptops, personal computers, mp3 players, video consoles, and personal digital assistants. Mobile Wifi: Some mobile phones can be Wifi enable while some of them still lack of this feature. If a device has Wifi, then it will connect to the internet through Wifi router. By doing this the phone itself disconnects from SIM data, that means the data usage will not be charged for SIM data. If you have a free Wifi near you, then you can use data for free and your SIM data services will be completely off. However, as soon as you disconnect from Wifi, the phone will force itself to use data connection, while this can be changed, but there is no way to use any other medium of establishing connections. We can use mobile data or a link to a hotspot in many locations such as in offices, coffee shops, and home.…

Pilfered Passwords To Adult Sites Are Hot – Too Hot
Dear Safety Net,” the letter began, “I caught my sons, 14 and 16, sneaking into adult sites without my permission–not that I would exactly be giving it anyway. That’s bad enough, but these were pay-per-use sites, and supposedly require a password. But my kids both tell me that’s a joke, that they can get into any of them anytime they please. How is this possible? What can I do, besides enrolling them in military school?” Remember the game show Password? Teams of contestants vied to see who could suss out the secret word first. That word might be cannibal, or maybe burlesque. The winners received a prize for their inspired guesswork. Well, there’s another kind of password game being played on the Net today. And the people running it have taken the guesswork out and added prizes that are bawdier than burlesque ever was. Among the thousands of adult sites on the Net, many now require a paid subscription. Once you subscribe, you receive a log-on name and a password, which enable you to enjoy the, uh, scenery. Sites that don’t charge may require an age verification, such as that provided (for a fee) by The Adult Check System .…
