CALGARY INFERNO FORWARD SARAH DAVIS PART OF BRIGHT ROOKIE CLASS TO LIGHT UP CWHL ALL-STAR ICE

Among the nine members of the Calgary Inferno named to the inaugural CWHL All-Star Game, Sarah Davis is part of the CWHL’s exciting rookie class ready to lead the league this year, towards its tenth anniversary season in 2017 and beyond.

Hailing from Paradise, N.L., the 22-year-old forward is already one of the greatest female players to come from that province and made history as the first player from the rock to compete in a CWHL All-Star Game.

As a side note, the selection of Davis in the 2014 CWHL Draft marks the second consecutive year that the Inferno picked a player from Newfoundland. In 2013, the league’s western most team selected Peggy Wakeham, who played her collegiate hockey with the University of Vermont Catamounts.

Currently tied for 12th overall in the CWHL scoring race, Davis is part of an exciting Calgary Inferno line-up boasting one of the most potent offences in league play. At the All-Star break, she ranked third in rookie scoring behind teammate Brittany Esposito and the Brampton Thunder’s Laura Fortino, who was the first pick overall in the 2014 CWHL Draft.

The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) says 2014 was another record for the installation of wind energy capacity in the country.

According to the group, this is the second consecutive year of record new capacity, with a total of 1,871 MW installed in five provinces.The most growth was reportedly in Ontario where 850 MW was installed.

The addition brings the total installed wind energy capacity in Canada to nearly 9,700 MW, which the non-profit says could produce enough electricity to meet the needs of over three million average Canadian homes.

For the second consecutive year, a Seattle city council member and “proud Socialist” will deliver a rebuttal to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address.

Kshama Sawant was elected to city council on a Socialist Alternative platform in 2013. She’s scheduled to deliver her remarks Tuesday evening directly after the GOP rebuttal, which will be given by freshman Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) following the conclusion of Obama’s address. You can watch it here.

A college professor and proponent of the Occupy movement, Sawant touted her support for a measure to increase Seattle’s minimum wage to $15 an hour as a key part of her campaign. The city later passed that wage hike in a historic vote, and in November, Sawant was arrested in a protest against an effort to deny certain airport workers that level of pay.

In 2014, Sawant also offered a rebuttal to Obama’s State of the Union address, criticizing the president for not pushing more aggressively on wage stagnation and deepening economic inequality, themes that Obama is expected to address again on Tuesday. She also blasted both parties for their failures to crack down on Wall Street “criminals” and for their support of drone warfare and government surveillance programs.

my expectations for tonight’s Royal Rumble PPV

Brock will retain the tittle as we all know he’ll headline Wrestlemania as a Champion,

same for the usos they’ll retain  ..

The Bellas somehow will win same for the ascension

— it must be the Night of Damien Mizdow to have a great show … we all love him :) it’s time for him to make his own way to the top §§!!

for The Rumble match ; I really don’t know , but I hope it won’t be Daniel Bryan because it won’t make any sense to see him in the main event for the second consecutive year tbh,

I’d rather see JBL vs The Bunny, at least it’ll be funny and ppl will be happy lmao XD

I really want to see one of those guys win : Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt

but I don’t think that’ll happen, I hope they’ll put Cesaro in the match, he’s an amazing performer but he’s so underrated !!

If Cesaro wins we’ll definitely have a great show in the main event of Wrestlemania guaranteed

but the closer one to win is Roman Reigns, as much as I hate it but he’s a good choice though . He can be the Next Next Big Thing ..

anyways I just hope the WWE will surprise us !!

Randy Orton should return tonight, maybe we’ll see RVD and some other surprises Idk

The Seattle Seahawks and Earl Thomas are returning to the Super Bowl for the second consecutive year. Knowing how many exclusives Mr. Thomas has received on the field over the past 32+ games, you knew that Jordan Brand wouldn’t let him enter the biggest game of the season without another special edition wear. Today no.29 showcased those metallic, liquid metal-esque Air Jordan 6 PEs that essentially look like the Lombardi trophy complete with an icy outsole. This time around, Earl showcased a new insole complete with a premium quilted construction and a special crest complete with the squad’s logo and his jersey number. The only question we have is that if the ‘Hawks win back-to-back Super Bowls, does that mean we can finally get a retail release of this AJ6? We can only hope. Grab a full look below.

Google Alternative

One of the few companies competing with Google in the web search industry is DuckDuckGo, which tries to stand out by pledging not to track its users. Specifically, DuckDuckGo doesn’t share its users’ search queries with other sites, doesn’t store their search histories, and doesn’t store any of their computer or location information—things many other search engines do to boost their advertising efforts. While DuckDuckGo is still a fraction of Google’s size, it just wrapped up its second consecutive year of impressive growth. (One of the company’s transparency measures is to publish aggregate daily usage statistics.) At the end of 2014, DuckDuckGo was receiving about 7 million direct search queries per day, roughly double the amount it received a year prior. But if you look more closely, DuckDuckGo had a huge end of the year, after more modest growth in the beginning. Why? Two big distribution deals seem to have played key roles. In September, Apple started including DuckDuckGo as a search option in its Safari browser for iOS and OS X. (Google is still the default option.) Then in November, Mozilla added DuckDuckGo as a search option for its Firefox browser. The company’s steepest growth driver to date, however, still seems to be the mid-2013 revelations of mass government internet surveillance. Google Chrome, for what it’s worth, still doesn’t include DuckDuckGo as a pre-installed search option.

“The personal retreat” or “how to live your bucket list starting now”

by Melissa L. Weber (@Melwriter, melwriter.com)

How much time do you spend deciding how you want to spend your time?

For the second consecutive year, my husband and I have had a weekend “retreat,” spending time together to plan how we want to spend our time and money in 2015.

Last year, we spent five days in a cabin in the woods. We had large Post-it pads, and hung blank pages on the wall. There were titles like: “Top 10 places you want to travel,” “most important things to do this year,” “big purchases,” “creative hobbies to do together/separately,” “charity donations,” “things you absolutely want to do before you die,” “Urgent projects you want to get done around the house,” (Granted, some of them are more fun-oriented than others). Many of the items on these lists were taken from our individual buckets lists.

So in 2014, we had new priorities for the year. We spent more time with family – especially grandchildren – including hosting a family scotch tasting (not for the grandchildren!). We took a trip with my parents to Utah and fell in love with Park City. (The mountains! The beer!) I began planning to create a blog. I got as far as registering the name: Melwriter.com (on Wordpress). It’s a work in progress….  We had our share of upheavals as well: from the untimely death of my uncle, who was just days away from retirement, to the more-expected death of my father-in-law at the age of 93, I am reminded me over and over that there is never enough time.

One of my bucket list items is to lead a more creative life: Read more, learn more, participate more in my own creativity – from playing my clarinet, to learning mindfulness and yoga, to writing the young adult fiction that I’ve always dreamed of publishing. I will use this blog to document my efforts to lead a more creative life. And secretly, I hope to inspire others who are trying to do the same thing.

So as of today, January 19, 2015, I am living my bucket.
