I have always wondered, and today I decided to find out for myself. There are 4 blocks of 6 dots max on any Canadian bill. They always have 6 dots the reason being is because the government wanted it to be distinct as to not cause any confusion to the visually impaired person.
5$ = 1 full block
10$ = 2 full blocks
20$ = 3 full blocks
50$ = 4 full blocks
100$ = 2 full blocks but 1 block is on the far left, and 1 is on the far right.
I have decided to keep a log of new words I come across while I am reading, this is so when I am reading my blog I will be forced to view the words and remember them. Some of the words listed I do in fact know what they mean, but IF I can not come up with a quick definition within a few seconds I will list it here. I am hoping by doing this I will learn faster, and be able to read and retain what I have read faster. Most of these words come from the book “The art of war”.

I went to see this movie today, and I really enjoyed it, there were several instances where it was cheesy and several lines I found awkward, for example if you have seen the trailer fat Amy was asked if she wanted to kiss and she replied with something along the lines of being able to do crystal meth I personally found it too random and I JUST NOTICED WHILE I WAS REWATCHING THE TRAILER THERE WAS NOTHING ABOUT THE BIKINI CAR WASH WTF! But even with the lack of the bikini car wash scene overall I found the movie fun and entertaining.
Why we should be designing for our ears, rather then designing for our eyes. I would recommend students or anyone that has trouble focusing to watch this video. Sometimes its not you who has the trouble learning but rather its your environment and if we can fix the environment we can all learn more.
Let me start by saying that this movie was exactly what I expected. This for me is extremely rare. Most movies best parts are in the trailers. The 3D was above standard, did not annoy my eyes like most 3D movies do. The story and cinematics were perfect! Nice job. 8.5/10.
I don’t normally watch twilight but when I do, I still don’t want too.. but this was funny. Enjoy.
There is no show as good as this one. This show constantly surprises me, most shows have a single problem then climax then at the end they solve it. This takes that and throws it out the window, it just keeps getting better. I can’t believe how pumped I am for the next episode. This is the best show on TV hands down right now.
There are so many things that could happen next episode its crazy. 10/10 nice job!
The Problem: Playbook will not turn on. I have not used my playbook in over a month, so it’s battery is completely drained out, so when ever I try to charge it all it does is give me the red light, then it goes off and stopped charging. I am not sure if this is a bug with their software or what the direct issue is but here is how to solve it.
The Solution: Plug in the playbook to charge. Wait until the red light goes away, if the light goes away and does not go green or stay red, that means it not charging. Take the plug out of the playbook and plug it back in. Do this several times, this will slowly charge the battery enough to allow us to turn it back on. I had to do this personally 5 times until it eventually came back on.
The lesson: Do not fully drain your playbook Hopefully this helps someone else.
I just want to take a second to honour those who were prematurely taken from us. RIP.
