Duncan (just south of Nanaimo) is another pretty good-feeling town. For one thing, the town has commissioned a bunch of authentic First Nations art. This one was carved by Richard Hunt, son of famed carver Henry Hunt.The 3 animals represented here are (from the top): frog, bear, beaver.The art of First Nations tribes is still very much alive in Canada.

I'm always drawn to abandoned buildings. If the foundation isn't rotten, you're halfway there. If the foundation is rotten (as it looks here), it's a question of  whether the framing is sound enough to merit jacking it up and pouring a new foundation.I'm here at the Vancouver airport, with a few hours to kill, thus these posts?

A few photos yesterday in Ladysmith, a nice little town south of Nanaimo on the east coast of Vancouver Island. Cumberland is another such nearby town. There are houses for sale for under 200K. Old mining towns. Small homes built for workers that have the appeal and aesthetics of simplicity. (The above isn't one of those homes, it just seemed seemed …

A new study finds that both conservative and non-conservative media are addictive to viewers. But conservative media like Fox News is much more addictive. It is the “crack” of cable news. Of course, Fox News is also far more inaccurate on issues like climate change than non-conservative media (such as CNN and MSNBC — see figure below). Thus its viewers are …

I received a review copy of Héctor Tobar's new book Deep Down Dark the other week and read the entire thing in one sitting. In it, Tobar tells the utterly mind-boggling story of the Chilean mine disaster of 2010, when 33 miners were trapped underground for 69 days after a catastrophic internal collapse of the mountain they'd been working within. [Images: …

New York resident Bruce Shenker didn’t used to be concerned about the three underground natural gas pipelines running through his property.
