Racism

I was told several times, even before I arrived in Canada that racism is a m ajor problem for immigrants here. I, myself, experienced that after I came here but it all depends on how you behave toward them, how you are looked to them and who you are dealing with. If you show that there's no difference in you and them and basically you're one of them and you respect what they respect, act very friendly, make them understand that you like what they like and you do what they do, they finally believe you and trust you a little bit. Also if they believe that you're good at what might be beneficial for them, they'll trust you. But regardless of all what just mentioned it takes very long to be accepted in their society, may be even impossible. I was surfing the net for information I need for my citizenship test as I checked my status and learnt that my file has been sent to Calgary office and I'll be contacted soon for my test and oath and found out that the new Go

Todd Bertuzzi had to face Colorado Avalanche and its fans for the first time after he punched Steve Moore in the neck and sent him to the hospital. Moore is still not able to play. In this game in Denver , Avalanche scored 6 times while Canucks did only 2 times. Regardless of this loss, Vancouver is leading Northwest devision with 17 points from 10 games. (Photo: Fans were ready for Bertuzzi, booed him or expressed their feeling with a placard like the one seen here calling him a coward!)

NS-5

A few days ago I wrote about my life and said it was not how a human being lives. I compared myself to an animal(!) and then a robot. I guess being a robot is more realistic, especially after I watched I, Robot on DVD. The movie is a good science-fiction as it's title indicates and is basically pictures the world in year 2035 (...well actually the US in that year or better to say Chicago !) In that time robots are seen everywhere and they are part of human's life, serve people like their servants. Will Smith is a detective who tries to find out how USR's (United States Robotics) most important scientist and I'd say founder has been murdered. He doesn't like robots and suspects them right from the beginning of his investigation. He, with the assistance of a lady scientist of USR, finds out that a robot of the new generation NS-5 is the key. The whole idea of the movie is based upon Isaac Asimov 's three laws of robotics. I knew them from years ago when

Hockey is Back on the Ice

NHL is back on the ice after the long lock-out and Calgary lost to Minnesota , in the first day of the games, yesterday, 3-6 . I watched the last 3 minutes of the third period of Montreal and Rangers tonight in TSN and that was as marvelous as usu. Montreal was winning the game, a 3-2 victory but in less than 3 min. to the end the Rangers tied the game. I finished watching the third period but could not watch the overtime. In the new NHL rule, there's no tied game. The teams play in overtimes (I don't know how many!) and then there's shots, I guess. I, then, found out that Montreal won the game in the first overtime, beat New York 4-3. (Photo: One of the six scores of Minnesota against Calgary in yesterday's game)
