Watching CBC News-The National & CBC News At 6

20 Jul

CBC News-The National was viewed with utmost clarity. CBC News Montreal At 6 was watched as well from a Cafe.
Only, I was nowhere near Montreal
but rather that cafe’ was on Queens Boulevard near Union Turnpike in Forest Hills. Yes, it is one of those ubiquitous Starbucks Locations.

CBC News The App is on my Android Mobile. So I was watching last evenings CBC News-The National, hosted by Mr David Common out of Toronto. I recall him as CBC’s UN Correspondent operating from New York City. I recall him doing a story from the Apple Store at East 59th Street and Fidth Avenue. I also recall him on CBC Radio One with the World Report, early in the morning.

CBC News Montreal At 6 is live, so I got to see Frank Cavallaro, doing the Weather for Montreal. I usually hear him on “Daybreak Montreal” on CBME FM 88.5 in the Early Morning.

It’s the Highly Improved CBC News App for Android, which works so much better on Android Lollipop(5.0.2), with an unlimited 4G LTE Connection.

It was almost as if I was in Montreal. My last time in Montreal was 1973. And CBC Television never looked this good.

Eh!

Never Watched NetNY Until Lollipop

20 Jul

NetNY carried live coverage of Two New Bishops in the Brooklyn Diocesan Cathedral. I was watching the tail end of The Coverage.
I couldn’t watch it on the 1st Android Phone(4.0.4 on Ice Cream Sandwich). But it was viewed with the much better Android Phone via Wi Fi and Android 5.0.2(Lollipop).
His Eminence, Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan was in Brooklyn.

Congratulations to the Most Reverend James Massa. I remember when he offered the Tridentine Latin Mass at St. John’s Cemetery Chapel over a Year Ago. I also remember him hearing confessions a couple of years ago at Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs in Forest Hills.
NetNY TV’s Stream can be watched “On The Mobile”(With Nod to Peter Mansbridge for those words).

The Pan American Games On Television

18 Jul

CBC in Canada is Host Broadcaster. US Residents, who live by the Canadian Border & Desire NOT ESPN, can tune into CBC Television, which they most often do.
Their Slogan like with the Olympics is “Mansbridge, NOT Costas.”
Mansbridge is Peter Mansbridge. In the case of Flushing Queens born Bob Costas, the Olympics are NOT a Time to wax Poetic about Elvin Charles “Mickey” Mantle.
But these are the Pan American Games, so one wonders if ESPN will be promoting World Championship Flatulence Emitting from some Subway Station in The Bronx?
So Yanks by the Canadian Border, you are better off with CBC Sports.
Eh!

“Veritas Voriscum”

20 Jun

I did subscribe, at least for one month to¬† the Site called ChurchMilitant.com, which originates from the “Warehouse In Detroit”, a Sarcastic way of saying that ChurchMilitant.com, comes from studios in the RC Archdiocese of Detroit from a Homosexually Inclined Suburb called Ferndale, where the Face of The Operation of Church Militant.com, the Mop Haired Mr Voris, rules the roost. It may as well be originating from a Former Warehouse in the Quasi Artistic Williamsburg Section of Brooklyn, NY.

His Report from St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City, was a most worthy ” Suck Up” Job. It was as if, in the Musings of Canada’s Resident Curmudgeon on “CBC News The National”, Robert Rex Raphael Murphy, better known as Rex Murphy, had referred to “Starbucks Coffee” as “Suck Up Coffee”, well Mr Gary Michael Voris(Gary From Westchester, You” re Next on SportsRadio 66 & 101.9 FM, WFAN), sounded like a “Suck Up” on the NY Yankees Television Network, called YES(Yankees Entertainment Sucks), mostly owned by FOX, by the way(Da, Da, Dot, Da, Da, Dahhh).

“Bad Advisors”, O Great Garoo from Croton On Hudson? Do consider the days of the Rule of Buenos Aires, Argentina, when the Seminary was almost Bare and an Order of Traditional Nuns were kicked into the street including a couple of Young Postulants, in regards to “Humbleganda” Cardinal Bergoglio.
His Eminence finding ways of keeping “Summorum Pontificum” out of Buenos Aires, with a Hybrid Tridentine and Novus Ordo Mass, which folded in a few months? Oh, Wait! He never offered the Tridentine Latin Mass, as his 1st Mass was a Novus Ordo Mass.
Then, as Pope, the Ordered By Him utter destruction of the Quasi Traditional Franciscan Friars Of The Immaculate, an order with a Waiting List to join, your UTTER SILENCE amazes me in the SENSE OF JUSTICE.

You, Gary Michael Voris, are a PAPOLATRIST. If The Current Occupant of The Chair of Saint Peter was to OUTLAW the Tridentine Latin Mass, you would blame Fr Thomas Rosica The Canadian(Born in Rochester, NY, USA in 1959) for a BAD TRANSLATION of such Declaration. You would immediately find a way to pin this action on one Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, who, no doubt, feels the pain of the previous “New Ones” you have ripped him without Anesthetics.
No doubt, you blame all of this on Michael J. Matt, Christopher A. Ferrara(Who Like You Was born in an Archdiocese Ruled by Francis Joseph Cardinal Spellman, which is the RC Archdiocese of New York, which in your case is Westchester County), John Vennari, The Late Fr. Nicholas Nightingale Gruner, and Louis Verrecchio. They are NOT PAPOLATRISTS like Yourself.

Is Marc and his network of “O. D’s” still making you their “Marionette” when the Message needs to be Webcast to The World? Thursday’s “Dog & Pony” Performance was nauseating to the Umpteenth Degree.It’s like passing wind after someone had consumed the beverage called Cerveza and eaten juevos in more than moderate amounts, while on a packed IND Queens Blvd Subway Train speeding into Manhattan. For those of you who don’t read Spanish, Cerveza is Beer, while Juevos are Eggs.

You once stated that you worked for FOX News. That report of yours was anything but “Fair & Balanced”.

And Papolatry violates The 1st Commandment.

From the Home Office in Forest Hills, Queens, NY, Heeeeere We Go:

#9: “Joe Buck, Tim Mc Carver, Derek Jeter? My Wife just puked”;
#8:Disgusted Parent demands explanation for switch from iTunes to Netflix”;

This is in reaction to outrageous antics of Parents who used to show up at these competitions over the years.

The 4th Round, on Vimeo, Dailymotion, VodPod and You Tube, drew several thousand viewers, especially on Vimeo. Also, iVideo.ie and Yardbarker.com carried coverage.
It was Official Round II from East Glendale, Queens, when Radio Tele Luxembourg, carried portions of the Dailymotion Feed. RTL is Europe’s largest privately held tv network. This was on the website of RTL.be in Belgium.

Competition seen in 80 Nations.

Starbucks & Tim Horton’s

29 Jan

Tim Horton once played NHL Hockey in Toronto and New York. He opened a chain of Strong Coffee Shops in Ontario.
Starbucks is named for a work of fiction. Coffee at Starbucks is rather fancy.
Starbucks was founded by a kid, in Seattle, Washington, who came from the Canarsie, Section of Brooklyn NY.

And to Rex Murphy, the founder of Starbucks, grew up in Brooklyn. You got a problem with that, eh?

Free On The TTC??

29 Jan

I received a report about free public transport rides from the TTC. This is the Toronto Transport Commission. Children, ages 12 and younger, would be the recipients of this generosity.

Do understand that Toronto has a New Mayor, who came up with this “Grand Scheme.” But how would this be implemented? Rob Ford, in all his lunacy as Mayor of Toronto, would never implement such a Scheme as this. It sounds like the Half Fare Senior Cards in New York City, when 1st Implemented in the Early 1970s.

Now I do remember an incident from the 2000 Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship in Ozone Park at Saint Mary Gate of Heaven School. There was an age dispute between two 12 Year Old Girls during a Five Shot Playoff Round. One Girl was Older Looking than the other. The Older Looking One won this round. The Legitimate 12 Year Old, who would turn 13 Later in 2000, would lose to someone a full 2 Years Older, actually had proof of her age, when a Year Later, the Older Looking One was turning 16 Years Old. She had no proof of her age.

So, in regards to the 12 & Younger Free Rides, how will this be handled?

Documentation will have to be produced for this to work. And will the TTC be able to handle this?

Fuggedibowdit as we say in Brooklyn. Either all or none ride free. In both cases, think of the bureaucratic tangles avoided.
There is No such thing as a Free Ride.

The TTC story is from CBLA FM 99.1, CBC Radio One Toronto.
Thanks, Eh!
