Extra! Extra! Thursday's News Today, March 1st 2007

Posted by Asmaa / March 1, 2007

20070301_bar.jpgThe Globe and Mail gushes over Celebrity Accused Conrad Black over an intimate dinner in Toronto. The writer can't resist remarking on how suddenly handsome His Lordship is and how he's become a "babe magnet." Ew.

The Parti Québécois and the Quebec Liberals launched their first television ads. And guess who's missing from the PQ spots? Yep, André Boisclair

The director of a St. Hyacinthe hospital where 16 people died after getting C. difficile said he didn't know about the epidemic until after several people died. He told a coroner's inquest into the deaths that he assumed staff followed proper disinfection guidelines, but never checked into the matter himself. Moral of the story: Never get hospitalized.

The cold weather and lack of terrasses are apparently keeping smokers out of Montreal bars and at home hacking away on their couches. It's costing local businesses millions in lost revenues.

Margaret Atwood scores yet another Canadian literary honour. She will be the recipient of the $10,000 grand prize for lifetime achievement at the Blue Met literary festival, which begins April 25. Do you think she even cares anymore?

The Montreal film industry is breathing a collective sigh of relief as Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz bring the schlock sequel The Mummy 3 to town. This on the heels of news Brad and Angelina are coming to visit for a conference next fall. Hollywood North indeed.

And, as MP reported yesterday, Montreal's Museum of Fine Arts is the only North American stop for a major exhibit of Walt Disney's work. No word if any of these quality films from the Disney Vault will be showcased, too.

Montreal is perfect for the Mummy. Most of the scenes will be filmed in the deserts of Mirabel. There are also some nice ruins there.

What's the best thing is that you can get drunk, takes some pictures and they finish up on a blog... and you discover almost 2 years later,

Props. (keep it there it is fine)

I have seen a great deal of useful fatcros on your web page about pcs. However, I have got the view that netbooks are still not quite powerful adequately to be a sensible choice if you often do things that require loads of power, just like video modifying. But for world wide web surfing, microsoft word processing, and the majority of other common computer work they are fine, provided you cannot mind small screen size. Thanks for sharing your notions.
