Monday, April 27, 2015, 6:21 PM - Residents of Fogo Island, Newfoundland are still rubbing their eyes in disbelief after a 'big, shaggy dog' spotted in the community turned out to be a polar bear weighing approximately 250 pounds.

Clayton Waterman, 58, and his wife Doreen were driving through the area to purchase seal meat when they spotted the animal.
"As we were going up the hill I noticed an animal on the road and I said, 'Doreen, look at the big shaggy dog,' and we were looking at it and as it got closer I said, 'Doreen, my God, that's a polar bear,'" Waterman told the CBC.
The bear and the Watermans were headed in the same direction -- Clayton tells the CBC it was 'just lumbering along on the pavement' -- so Waterman slowed down and kept a safe distance.
He says the bear looked young and weighed around 250 pounds and appeared to be in good health.
It eventually turned off the road and into the woods.

The couple didn't have a phone with them, so they flagged down a truck driver who called wildlife officials.
The Watermans returned home, about four kilometres from the sighting.
Doreen took the car out to deliver a piece of seal to a neighbour when she spotted the bear again, out on the harbour ice.
This time the animal was 500 yards from their home.

Clayton called the RCMP, who told him they'd check in the following morning as it was getting dark.
"I wasn't so worried about that, but I told Doreen to sleep on the couch just in case he came in he could see her first … just joking with her, right? But she didn't like the joke," Clayton told the CBC.
It's unclear where the bear is now, but Waterman says he'll keep a phone with them when they head out in case it's spotted again.


CUTE COUNTDOWN: Baby polar bear's first steps

This isn't the first time a polar bear has made an appearance in a residential area.
In October, wildlife officials in Kaktovik, Alaska got a shock when a 'humongous' polar bear broke into a home. Apparently the bear was eating a drum of seal oil that belong to the homeowner, 81-year-old Betty Brower. No one was injured in the incident.
Then, an increase in polar bear sightings in Arviat, Nunavut last October prompted officials to hold Halloween celebrations indoors.
Officials say the polar bears have been coming into the small Canadian community more in recent years, especially in the fall.

 The DIE HARD version of the vinyl boxset sold out awhile ago I think.  
There are still some regular vinyl sets, which many also like, as they only leave out rehearsal / live versions of songs you already got in the regular set.
Unless you want to pay later at a much. much higher price for the vinyl, on eBay, or Discogs, better get moving.

Trees disappearing from Canada faster than almost any other country: study. Here's why >>

Russia and Canada are leading the world when it comes to tree cover loss according to an analysis of 2011 and 2013 satellite data by researchers at the University of Maryland and Global Forest Watch.
The findings coincide with the publication of a separate study in Nature Climate Change which suggests the world's tree cover is improving, despite decades of deforestation efforts at the hands of man.
That study cited recent tree-planting efforts in China, the re-growth of forests in former Soviet states and healthier Savannas due to above-average rainfall as factors that helped expand the world's vegetation, adding close to 4 billion tonnes of above-ground carbon to the Earth since 2003.
Still -- when it comes to forest loss, Canada comes in second to Russia.
"Global tree cover loss in 2013 continued to be high at over 18 million hectares —about twice the size of Portugal—slightly lower than 2012, but a troubling 5.2 percent increase over the 2000-2012 average," the World Resources Institute (WRI) says in a statement.
"In 2011-2013, Russia and Canada topped the list (mostly due to forest fires), jointly accounting for 34 percent of total loss."
      
Researchers are quick to point out that at least some of the tree loss is "temporary" -- but it will take some time for forests to replenish.
Between 2011 and 2013, 43,000 square kilometres of northern boreal forest were destroyed in Russia. Canada saw a loss of 24,500 square kilometres during the same time frame.
Both regions have experienced an unusually high rate of forest fires in recent years, exacerbated by dry conditions.
Oil, gas and logging operations have also played a role.
"It is too early to call this spike a trend," WRI writes.
"Further research is needed to determine the drivers and estimate impacts of the forest fires, which tend to be highly variable over time and affect some boreal areas more than others."

Bruce Dickinson still sucks...ok, maybe not as much as I used to think

I was reading (AND re-reading again, for the umpteenth time since 2001), some old album reviews at

LARM the fourth reich of reviews
http://www.deathmetal.org/etc/larm/

One was for
http://www.deathmetal.org/etc/larm/0500/0570.html


Bruce Dickinson
The Chemical Wedding
[CMC/BMG]


I used to own that album, and  the "Accident of Birth" CD, but eventually I got so SICK AND TIRED of all the 'power metal' bands with Bruce-copycats !
HATED THEM SO MUCH -
that I remembered originally hating his vocal style too !
"Number of the Beast" is shit compared to the first two IRON MAIDEN albums, and early singles / EP's.
I returned to my mindset that Paul Di'anno was a million times better because he didn't sound operatic and faggy, and Iron Maiden should not have fired him.

SO...
who is more surprised than me, when wondering why I liked Dickinson at all in the past,
went to youtube to check out some old songs.

a PERFECT example of where I don't mind Bruce  is  "THE TOWER".
Heroic / epic story telling sometimes needs smooth, over the top singing.
 
.
PS.
Bummer about him getting cancer.

http://loudwire.com/iron-maiden-doctors-extremely-optimistic-bruce-dickinson-cancer-recovery/\

I had cancer too, and survived it . Hope he does too.
I predict if he rejoins SAMSON, then he will recover 100 %. (just joking... but that would be great! Bruce sounded really cool when singing with SAMSON.)

SAMSON... .'Vice Versa' and 'Hard Times'.
