They won't read it anyway. Only our Imperial masters at the Colonial Office will take a gander. Isn't it getting late in the mother country? The Elvis movie opened in Toronto today. I'll go tomorrow night.

noisome


adjective | NOY-sum

What It Means

The word noisome describes what is very unpleasant or disgusting, and is used especially of disgusting smells.

// A noisome stench came from the narrow alley.

Oliver Parker Fritchle (September 15, 1874 – August 1951) was an American chemist, storage battery innovator, and entrepreneur with electric vehicle and wind power generation businesses during the early twentieth century. His initial battery patent was awarded in 1903[1] and by 1904 he had established what was to become the Fritchle Automobile & Battery Company in Denver, Colorado.[2] He was an early adaptor and developer of significant automotive technologies, such as regenerative braking[3] and hybrid drivetrains,[4] that did not reemerge on production vehicles of major car companies until late in the twentieth century.

Fritchle achieved national celebrity for his 1908 Lincoln-to-New York endurance run in one of the first electric automobile models produced by his firm.[5] He covered the 1,800 miles (2,900 km) in a stock Victoria Phaeton achieving as many as 108 miles (174 km) between charges[6] through extremes in weather, terrain, and road conditions; a remarkable feat with an electric vehicle of that day. The trip journal and photographs subsequently published to promote The 100 Mile Fritchle Electric provided unique insight to the state of road and electric power infrastructure within the United States during the early twentieth century.

Mariam Nabatanzi was sold into marriage at 12 and gave birth to a set of twins a year later. Three more sets of twins followed — along with five sets of triplets and five sets of quadruplets.
Nabatanzi gave birth to 44 kids by age 40 — and only once to a single child. Doctors have told the woman from Uganda she has a rare medical condition that no family planning method can help.
She was told she had unusually large ovaries that released multiple eggs at once — a condition called hyperovulation.

“Her case is a genetic predisposition to hyper-ovulate – releasing multiple eggs in one cycle – which significantly increases the chances of having multiple births,” explained Dr. Charles Kiggundu, a gynecologist at Mulago Hospital in Kampala, to The Daily Monitor. Doctors said she could suffer health problems if she stopped giving birth.

Family sizes are already large in Uganda. The fertility rate averages out at 5.6 children per woman, one of Africa’s highest, and more than double the global average of 2.4 children, according to the World Bank. But even in Uganda, the size of Nabatanzi’s family makes her an extreme outlier.

German troops used stolen U.S. Army uniforms to wreak havoc behind Allied lines.
During the early stages of the Battle of the Bulge, Hitler ordered Austrian SS commando Otto Skorzeny to assemble an army of impostors for a top-secret mission known as Operation Greif. In a now-famous ruse, Skorzeny outfitted English speaking German soldiers with captured American weapons, jeeps and uniforms and had the men slip behind the U.S. lines and pose as G.I.s. The German pretenders cut communication lines, switched road signs and committed other small acts of sabotage, but they were most successful at spreading confusion and terror. When word got out that German commandos were masquerading as Americans, G.I.s set up checkpoints and began grilling passersby on baseball and American pop culture to confirm their identities. While they succeeded in capturing a few of the Germans, the roadblocks often produced farcical results. Overzealous American soldiers shot out the tires on British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery’s jeep, and one G.I. even briefly detained General Omar Bradley after he answered that the capital of Illinois was Springfield (the soldier incorrectly believed it was Chicago).

Money-spinning merch
By the end of 1956, sales of Elvis merch had grossed a jaw-dropping $22 million (or $234m today) according to the Wall Street Journal.

Elvis received just a fraction of that figure but still made a fortune, and was declared a millionaire by Variety before the year was out.

Lavish spending
Having attained global stardom and a bulging bank balance to match, Elvis started spending like a superstar, snapping up Cadillacs, jewelry, and prime real estate.

In early 1956, the rocker had purchased a four-bedroom, ranch-style house in an affluent suburb of Memphis for $40,000 ($425k today), using royalties he'd received from Heartbreak Hotel.


Graceland mansion
In 1957, Elvis drastically upgraded to Graceland, a 23-room Colonial Revival mansion in Memphis. He paid $102,500 ($1.1m today) for the grand pile.

The free-spending star then dropped more than $500,000, which is $5.1 million today, on remodelling the property to his liking. The sprawling property would serve at an individual's primary residence until his death in 1977.

While Elvis's profile and net worth continued to go from strength to strength, his career was interrupted by military service in 1958.


Movie career
Following his release from the US Army in March 1960, Elvis, who was earning the equivalent in today's money of $49 million (£39.2m) a year, turned his attention to making movies and soundtrack albums.

They were widely panned by the critics but proved hugely popular with the public and managed to gross millions. Yet again, however, Elvis's share of the pie was whittled down considerably due to his manager, agent, and the IRS all taking ample chunks of the cash first.


Parker's greed
The Colonel hiked up his fee to a punishing 50% of Elvis's earnings in 1967 and, with the William Morris Agency taking another 10% and taxes eating up a significant proportion, the star was left with barely 20% of the total.

While Parker did manage to orchestrate some great deals for Presley over the years, the svengali mismanaged Elvis's career in various ways.


Drug addictions
By 1970, the troubled celebrity is alleged to have been spending over $500,000 a year on prescription medication and fees for more than 100 doctors, which is an extraordinary $3.7 million in 2022 money.

Towards the end of Elvis's life, his annual expenditure on narcotics is said to have to exceeded a million dollars, which is $5.4 million today.

High Blood Pressure FOOD TO AVOID (What else is ls left)

Deli meat
Deli meat may be a practical lunch ingredient, but its high salt content (two slices of regular ham contain 730 mg of sodium) is bad news for your blood pressure.

Did you know that sodium intake is directly related to high blood pressure? According to the World Health Organization (WHO), too much sodium in your diet can lead to elevated blood pressure and increase your risk of heart disease and stroke.
The best way to decrease your blood pressure is to eat less salty foods.
Pickles
Pickles are a tasty addition to any cheese platter, burger, or roast chicken dinner. However, these salty treats are off the menu if you have hypertension. As vegetables pickle, they absorb large quantities of salt from their brine.

For a healthier alternative, try fresh cucumbers or other raw veggies.

Store-bought pasta sauces
You might be surprised to learn that supermarket pasta sauces are genuine salt bombs. Half of the sauce brands tested by Consumer Reports had 400 mg of sodium or more per half-cup.

If you have hypertension, choose low-sodium sauces or whip up your own salt-free version.

Cheeses
Many cheeses are off-limits for hypertensive individuals due to their high level of sodium. Some blacklisted varieties include American cheese, Parmesan, and blue cheese, which all contain over 300 mg of sodium per ounce.
Bacon
Fatty, salty, and high in cholesterol, bacon is a definite no-no if you’re watching your blood pressure.

Even if you don’t have hypertension, you should limit your bacon consumption. Why? Studies have suggested that it can increase your risk of developing certain cancers.

Wine
Drinking a moderate amount of red wine has long been linked to a lower risk of heart disease. However, if you’re hypertensive, you should limit your wine consumption to one or two glasses a day. Drinking too much alcohol (four glasses or more per day) can raise your blood pressure.
Mashed potatoes
Love potatoes? Unfortunately, mashed isn’t much healthier than fried. One study showed that a higher intake of mashed potatoes or French fries was associated with an increased risk of developing hypertension—especially among individuals who ate four or more servings per week.

Pizza
If you have hypertension, you should dump your pizza delivery menus in the recycling bin! Many pizza toppings like tomato sauce, cheese, and pepperoni are rich in salt and saturated fat, which can elevate your blood pressure.

Canada's lowest recorded temperature is as cold as Mars
One of the least surprising facts about Canada is that it can get pretty cold in the winter (anyone who's ever had to chisel their car out of a block of ice in the morning knows this to be true). The average low for the month of January in Ottawa is -14.4 C (6.1 F). That's pretty cold! However, a temperature recorded in 1947 in Snag, Yukon makes the rest of Canada's winter weather seem like a relaxing beach vacation. A temperature of -63 C (-81.4 F) was recorded in the small village of Snag on Feb. 3, 1947. That's roughly the same temperature as the surface of Mars!

Canada has 10 per cent of the world's forests
One of the most widely-known facts about Canada is that we've got an abundance of trees, but did you know that Canada actually boasts 30 per cent of the world's boreal forest and 10 per cent of the world's total forest cover? An incredible 396.9-million hectares of forest and other wooded land can be found across the country, and 68 per cent of that is coniferous. The best part of all? Most of our forest land is publicly owned.

Canada has six times more oil than Russia
It's thick, it's sticky and Canada has an estimated 176.8 billion recoverable barrels of it. That's right, crude bitumen—a semi-solid source of petroleum—is available in abundance in Canada's oil sands. There's an estimated 249.67 billion accessible barrels of the black stuff in the world and Canada has about 70.8 per cent of it—four times more than Kazakhstan and six times more than Russia.

The last paragraph is great news, Doodoo. It provides a solution to European dependence on Russian oil. Mr. Trudeau will be able to offer Canadian oil to Europe, seek to stimulate the oil industry in his country, ease the unemployment problem, increase the value of the Canadian dollar and stave off a recession.

Let's hope Mr. Trudeau gets hopping on this file. It will provide him the opportunity to have any number of photo ops, and be seen as a visionary of sorts.

Hope this helps,

Oil extraction from the Athabasca tar sands is easily the most expensive and significantly the most environmentally damaging method in the world. I remember it was described as prohibitively expensive when I was in school, the environmental aspect got less mileage.

to the price of extraction and the environmental issues in mining Athabasca Oil in Alberta. Lets try and keep on subject

Your original copy/paste suggests that Canada has some sort of global oil superiority.

Your subsequent comment erroneously suggests it's just a lack of infrastructure that's holding any large scale investment and exploitation back. It doesn't have "various kinds of oil", it has huge, subsurface deposits of bitumen. Calling it "thick and sticky" is an understatement.

Subsequent posts by myself and other members simply illustrate correctly why it will never happen.

I just KNOW this helps everyone else except you.

The producible reserves of the Orinoco Belt are up to 235 billion barrels (3.74×1010 m3)[2] which would make it the largest petroleum reserve in the world, slightly ahead of the similar unconventional oil source in the Athabasca oil sands.

The original post states That Canada has 6 times more oil than Russia and just Russia . How you read into that " suggesting that Canada has some sort of global oil superiority." is a bit of a challenge.
Canada has various grades of oil, Bitumen being only one and with that it provides various challenges in processing them In other words Western oil form the Athabasca area cannot be processed in the Refineries on the Eastern Seaboard.

I also would like to know how you can gauge what EVERYONE KNOWS, "I just KNOW this helps everyone else except you." An amazing feat in its self knowing everyone

I can't help it you if you (still) can't be bothered to read the stuff you copy/paste.

Your post was specifically about the bitumen and not about the "various grades of oil" elsewhere in Canada.

Q: If Canada "has about 70.8 per cent" of the world's total bituminous oil, why haven't they simply invested in the pipelines and refineries? Why have they sat on such a windfall since before I went to school if it was only a matter of some relatively simple logistics?

A: Because it is bituminous oil, it's "thick, it's sticky" and needs very slow and expensive on-site, resource-hungry extraction and pre-processing to get it close to being transportable in a bloody pipeline.

It's your thread anyway but keep hitting Google and Wiki after the fact if it helps with your fundamental comprehension of things.

Why can’t Canada build more oil pipelines? see below

Cost to build a refinery Approximately $15 Billion USD Give or take a few Billion

As to your statement "needs very slow (can't comment as I am unaware what is meant by SLOW" and expensive on-site, resource-hungry extraction) all processing of oil is on-site and expensive and pre-processing (again all oil has to be pre-processed in various fashions) to get it close to being transportable in a bloody pipeline.

As for not knowing what slow means, thanks for acknowledging something we've been aware of for quite some time.

SHOES!!!!!!

The self-lacing Nike Air MAG from ‘Back to the Future Part II’ is worth at least US$100,000
Twenty-two years after their appearance in Back to the Future Part II, the Nike Air MAG finally became available to buy in 2011.

Although the initial model didn’t feature the futuristic patented sneaker’s auto-lacing technology, a pair still boasts an average resale value of US$8,593.

A second model (complete with the auto-lacing system) was released in 2016 with 89 pairs produced and raffled off in aid of the Michael J. Fox Foundation. One pair of this model later sold for over US$100,000 at auction.

The expensive Diamond Dream Stilettos by Stuart Weitzman are valued at an incredible US$500,000
Stuart Weitzman is renowned in showbiz circles for his luxurious footwear designs. So, it’s no surprise that his Diamond Dream Stilettos are among the most expensive shoes in the world.

Created for Dreamgirls star Anika Noni Rose, who wore them to the 2007 Academy Awards (pictured), the shoes are embellished with 30-carat diamonds arranged in two decorative platinum bands. In total, 1,420 individually cut diamonds are used—bringing the value of this pair of heels to a whopping US$500,000.

A pair of Judy Garland’s original ruby slippers from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ are now worth at least US$510,000
Arguably the most iconic shoes in Hollywood history, the ruby slippers worn by Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz now carry a hefty price tag.

Five pairs are still known to exist—one is displayed at the National Museum of American History, while another has its home at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures

Michael Jordan’s game-worn Nike Air Ships are some of the world’s most expensive sneakers
In recent years, sneakers have started to overtake stilettos as some of the most expensive shoes in the world. One such example is a pair of basketball shoes worn by Michael Jordan, which were sold for almost US$1.5 million at auction in 2021.

The NBA icon wore the Nike Air Ships during the fifth game of his rookie season with the Chicago Bulls in 1984. Their sale was the highest sum ever paid for game-worn footwear from any sport.


Another pair was sold at auction for US$510,000 in 2011. Meanwhile, a fourth pair that was stolen (and then recovered) was estimated to be worth up to US$3 million.


At US$17 million, the Passion Diamond Shoes were once the most expensive shoes in the world
The result of a collaboration between Jada Dubai and Passion Jewellers, the Passion Diamond Shoes are made from real gold, feature two 15-carat diamonds on the upper and are adorned with hundreds more diamonds.

Valued at an astonishing US$17 million when they were revealed in 2018, they overtook Debbie Wingham’s high heels as the most expensive shoes in the world at that time. However, they have since been surpassed by Antonio Vietri’s US$19.9 million-Moon Star Shoes, which debuted in 2019.
