Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Last night, my daughter, her dad and I went to the Detroit Pistons game, and on the way home, on the tunnel bus, a very nice young man was such gentleman and sweetheart to my 7 year old daughter. Chatting with her and making her smile, and even giving her his Detroit Pistons hat, It made her day. She was so happy going home and wearing that hat and is even wearing it all day today. Thank you to that guy on the bus, you made an already unforgettable night even more memorable for her. Thank you!
I found a bill fold with money in it at the Tecumseh mall today ( Nov 11) around 1:30pm. There was no ID. I gave it to security. If you are the owner the security office has it and they need the description of the wallet to confirm you are the owner. Hoping whoever it is gets their money back!
Lost a white gold diamond tennis bracelet Nov 8-9
To whoever brought my phone to customer service at Sears on Friday Nov 10th, GOD BLESS YOU! There were irreplaceable pictures on there that weren't backed up. Thank you so much for your honesty and kindness.
So it was date night with my girls. We went and seen my little pony. Then dinner at the Chinese buffet. When I went to go pay they said it was taken care of. I asked what do you mean? The waitress said 'pay it forward someone seen you with your kids and paid the bill' I of course got shakey and started to cry. We all hit hard times and finances aren't the best when trying to support two children alone and I've had my rough patches. You certainly don't always think positive and that simple things matter but tonight gave me a better outlook on life. Whoever you are thank you from me and my daughters.
You were at the east end Wal-Mart Thursday, November 9th around 7:30pm. You had on a dark blue hoody, covering the large tattoo on your upper left arm. You're a big dude, roughly 6'3" maybe 240 lbs? You know I was there too because you saw me and your eyes hit the floor. You may recognize me as the girl you exposed yourself to months ago at my place of employment. But now I, my boyfriend, and hopefully everyone within ear shot of me will recognize you as well, as the pervert you are. You see, maybe you think showing your junk to unsuspecting people is thrilling, but I am here to tell you it's disgusting. And illegal, which I'm sure you're aware of as I filed a police report the minute you drove off last summer. They took the plate number of your shiny black pick up (a Ram perhaps?) and your description as well. I don't have much faith in your prosecution as you're out and about, with a woman at that! I wonder if she knows what kind of person you are? Had I not had my children with me I would have gladly told her, but I have a rule about keeping my kids as far away from perverts as possible. I am posting this in hopes of someone recognizing your description and realizing what a scum bag you are.
Sincerely, every woman you've ever harassed in your life.
COPIED FROM STAND WITH STUDENTS PAGE
Province Wide Student Rally the 14th, 15th & 16th on local college campuses to make our issues as students heard. It is important PSS (Post-Secondary Students) are unified in our goal for this rally. At this time this is our "platform," if you have any edits, suggestions, comments, concerns with this platform please feel free to comment!
Post-Secondary Students Issues:
- Compensation for lost time (4 weeks of our lives have been wasted)
- Reimbursement of Fees Paid (Including tuition, SA fees, parking passes, lockers, textbooks that were rented (not outright purchased) etc.)
- Students should have a say on how we go forward from this strike. Students are split on how WE want to see our semester saved. WE WANT THE OPTION TO CHOOSE, (depending on our college/ campus, year, program, etc.) to EITHER;
a) Restart this semester in January (or if that is not possible, continue with next semester as planned and redo this semester in September.)
b) Condense & complete this semester, FREE OF ALL CHARGES! Put the money we have paid in tuition for this semester towards next semester, or reimburse students leaving/ graduating.
- If we restart our semester, will we lose the ability to submit the work we have completed thus far this semester? Or if we do re-submit assignments next semester, will we be flagged as plagiarizing our own work?
- If we condense the semester we will not be receiving the same education we paid for;
- We paid for 15 (or 7-1-7) weeks of a course, not 15 weeks of work condensed into 10 weeks.
- We paid to have a professor teach us in a classroom, with effective resources and learning tools, not to have to struggle teach ourselves in our school libraries with administrative staff trying to do a job they aren't paid or educated to do.
- We paid for the opportunity to have in-class discussions, to do projects and presentations, in addition to the assignments and textbook modules we have been independently working on for the last month.
**Please note that fees outside of the colleges control will not be addressed at this time, as the living-costs incurred are both subjective and circumstantial. We are still looking a legal options for financial restitution however we all seem to agree the biggest concern for us as students is getting back into the classrooms, and receiving the education we paid for.***
Dear College Teachers,
I am a single mom, and a student of yours. Like many others, I look to OSAP for help to better myself for my children. As the days pass us by with uncertainty when we will return to classes again I am not going to sit here and harp on you about where this disruption has my life at this very second, that's a letter for the College Employer Council and Ontario's Ministry of Advanced Education in my opinion.
This letter is one of Thanks!
Thank you, for standing up for your fellow
Teachers who deserve the same rights as you have.
Thank you, for standing up for us students who deserve to receive a well thought out, prepared and delivered with passion education.
Thank you, for continuing to show up even as the temperatures drop to teach us even in the coldest days there's still something worth fighting for.
Thank you, on behalf of my children who will one day grace the halls proud to be supported by the strength and passion which is you.
Thank you, for fighting the urge to answer us students who are tirelessly emailing and messaging you for answers we know you too are looking for.
As we come closer to these three special days next week when you will attend, log in or which ever other means you have accessible to you in order to cast your vote, please don't be pressured by those of us who don't understand the big picture, please consider not only what you're voting on but also what you may be voting against.
Yes it's been a restless 5 almost 6 weeks and if it must continue, so be it.
You are brave. You are appreciated. You are the shape of OUR future!
