Day of the Doctor review with spoilers

Saturday, November 23. 2013


Moffat ups and kick RTD so hard that RTD looks out of it!

This is superb!!

Loved the War Doctor!

I was expecting at the start the Doctor and Clara to walk out of

Trazelore and TARDIS off! Still needs to be explain!

All right who brought the Doctor in? The zygons or U.N.I.T?

Don't jump all at once.

So the Queen does a number on the Zygons. Not even the Spanish

could live that down.

Next the time cube or capturing time for either an invasion

or a back door.

Now SM is very clever on this one!

Most emotional scenes are without doubt the war displaced.

Even the consciousness as Rose works for me.

The Doctor getting a Zygon / human resolution by cleverness

works for me.

BTW the Zygons were in Scotland; was a second invasion force laying

dormant in England.

The final resolution, the last day of the time war.

3 of the later Doctors come to a resolution that goes without regret

and rewrite their own history.

Who loves it who hates it?

The Doctors manage to save Gallifrey somehow

and destroy a significant amount of Daleks.

End game to the Daleks, but will they return?

The painting Gallifrey falls no more.

I wonder if Tom Baker did ask for that!

So the new Doctor is headed for home.

Will this be that part of the trilogy or rather thrillogy?

Harper distort Liberal PArty statements and democracy

Saturday, March 26. 2011
FRom the Liberal PArty of Canada

The rules of our democracy

Whoever leads the party that wins the most seats on election day should be called on to form the government.

If that is the Liberal Party, then we will be required to rapidly seek the confidence of the newly-elected Parliament.

If our government cannot win the support of the House, then Mr. Harper will be called on to form a government and face the same challenge.

That is our Constitution. It is the law of the land.


If we are given the privilege of forming the government, these are the rules that will guide us:

o We will face Parliament with exactly the same team, platform and agenda

that we bring to Canadians during this election.

o We will work with ALL parties to make Parliament work.

o We will not enter a coalition with other federalist parties. In our system,

coalitions are a legitimate constitutional option. However, I believe that

issue-by-issue collaboration with other parties is the best way for minority

Parliaments to function.

o We categorically rule out a coalition or formal arrangement with the Bloc


o If we are facing a minority Parliament, we will work like Liberal Prime

Ministers Lester Pearson, Pierre Trudeau and Paul Martin did: to provide

progressive government to our country by building support issue-by-issue

and by tapping into the goodwill, generosity and common sense of

Canadians across the political spectrum. These are the governments that

gave Canada the Canadian Flag, Medicare, the Canada Pension Plan, the

Kelowna Accord and a National Daycare Plan. With the right kind of

leadership another minority Parliament could strive for such heights.

We call on Mr. Harper to make clear his position:

o Does he agree with our description of the workings of our democratic


o Why does he insist on fabricating lies about an impending coalition,

something he knows is false?

o Will he tell Canadians the truth about his secret hotel room meetings in

2004 with the Bloc Quebecois which resulted in a signed letter of

agreement to the Governor General, proposing a Conservative-NDP-Bloc

The series regular passed away after a short illness, his agent told the BBC.

The actor appeared on screen opposite five different Doctors and worked with two more - David Tennant and Paul McGann - on Doctor Who audio stories.

In 2008 he reprised his Brigadier role in Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures.

Courtney had already appeared in such series as Escape and The Saint before making his first Doctor Who appearance in 1965, playing a character named Bret Vyon.

He returned to the show in 1968 to make his first appearance as the Brigadier opposite the second Doctor, Patrick Troughton.

The stalwart of the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce (UNIT) would periodically return over the next two decades before his final appearance in 1989.

Nicholas Courtney in The Sarah Jane Adventures In 2008 he appeared in an episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures

Courtney continued to work on other shows during that time, including The Avengers, The Champions, Callan and Minder.

After Doctor Who he had parts in such popular dramas as The Bill, Casualty and Doctors.

In 1997 he became honorary president of the Doctor Who Appreciation Society in recognition of the 107 episodes in which he appeared.

League of Gentlemen star and Doctor Who writer Mark Gatiss remembered the actor as "a childhood hero and the sweetest of gentlemen".

Impressionist Jon Culsaw said Courtney was "a brilliant actor and warm, charming man", while Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright paid tribute to "a true gent".

Doctor Who A christmas Carol reviewed

9/10 !!

One imperfection!

Great start and yeah a bit of a Star Trek holiday ship rip off I must


The Doctor first begs for the lives of those on board and gets the boot.

He then here a Christmas Carol and decides to play Dickens.

I do not fault Moffatt for the interference in Time Travel.

That actually enhnces to the art.

And this is fun ( Anyone for a Doctor Who and MArilyn Monroe meetup?)

What I did not like was the young Sarkis meeting the old Sarkis.

Anyone recall Maydryn Undead and what one brigadier did to another?

Also, political power and influence, Moffatt weaves these themes well.

Well casted!!

Wasteful spending must stop

Edmonton Journal October 8, 2010

Re: "Mill Woods LRT possible by 2015, mayor says," The Journal, Oct. 6.

With our civic election less than two weeks away, there are a number of things voters in Edmonton need to be reminded of.

Within weeks of our last election, our council voted themselves a 23-per-cent pay increase, only a start to the incredible rate of largesse they have displayed in the last three years. Council has made great strides in making our city the zenith for irresponsible and wasteful spending.

We have made a bid to invite the world to visit our city, but we will be the laughing stock of the world when they see the state of our roadways.

Stephen Mandel says he will take money away from road construction to put toward the southeast LRT.

Is this really what citizens want? We don't have money to fix potholes or plow snow, but we fund every festival that makes an appeal.

We spend millions of dollars on "pie in the sky" ideas and edifices to the legacy of our council, but ignore the basic needs of our communities.

Mandel came into his mayoralty with a debt of zero dollars, and in six years has raised taxes by almost 40 per cent and has left us more than a billion dollars in debt.

Any responsible parent knows that you put the meat and potatoes on the table before you buy the dessert.

Mandel and his cohorts on council need to act more like responsible parents than banana republic tyrants.

Edmonton Journal preview Doctor Who - Amy's Choice

Saturday, June 5. 2010
From Edmonton Journal preview Doctor Who Any's Choice :

A heartfelt Who

By Alex Strachan, Canwest News Service June 5, 2010

Get out your hankies: Karen Gillan, who plays the Doctor's companion Amy Pond in the latest incarnation of Doctor Who, cites tonight's episode, Amy's Choice, as her favourite in the series so far.

As with so many things about this fantastic spin through time and space, the story's premise is both simple and complex -- tantalizingly, bewitchingly so.

The hour opens with Amy and her boyfriend Rory (Arthur Darvill) back home in Leadworth, England. It has been five years since their last adventure with the Doctor, and Amy is very, very pregnant. Life is good, if a tad dull. Then, one day, the Doctor suddenly drops by for a visit. They reminisce about the good times, listen peacefully to the birds chirping around them, fall asleep and -- wake up back on the TARDIS.

It was all a dream. Or was it?

A peculiar little man - - -the Dream Lord (Toby Jones) appears before them, and tells them they are moving back and forth in time, between a real world - - -world. Which is which? Choose well, and they get to live. Choose wrong, and they will all die. And so it begins. - - -clever, the story brisk and witty and the resolution is hard - - - but makes perfect sense in the end.

You don't have - - - sci-fi fan to enjoy Doctor Who. - - -adventure tale for kids of all ages: a madcap romp that posits a universe - - - women are just as tough, funny and resourceful - - - and people of all ages, races, colours and - - - -- unless they happen to - - - - Master or peculiar little men who call themselves Dream Lords.

Matt Smith, the 11th and youngest Doctor in Who's 47-year span, makes a dashing hero. It's hard to imagine anyone could make a fan forget David Tennant after just five episodes, but that's exactly what Smith has done. And Gillan is truly wonderful as the Doctor's sidekick.

When she glances down at her pregnant belly and tells the Doctor that Rory means everything to her, it's hard not to shed a tear. This is edge-of-the-seat, heartfelt entertainment. Just what the Doctor ordered. (Space -- 7 p. m.)

from Doctor Who returns with usual wit

Doctor Who returns with usual wit

By Randee Dawn, Reuters

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Doctor Who might be the world's most perfect series because it never has to end. (Let's ignore the hiatus in the 1990s.)

On the air nonconsecutively since 1963, Who comes with a built-in reboot system: a lead whose alien properties allow him to regenerate his body (letting a new actor fill old shoes). So fans who know where to look already will be aware of the Doctor's latest incarnation: He has gone from plucky-yet-worldly-wise David Tennant to bow-tie-wearing goof Matt Smith, who debuts Saturday, April 17 at 9 p.m. ET on Space.

Additionally, his travelling time machine, the TARDIS, has been revamped into a steampunker's dream, and his travelling companion has gotten even younger, perhaps to match up with Smith's wide-open, baby face.

There's little to be said about Who that fans don't know; for example, they probably know just how the series is going to find a loophole in the Doctor's 13-regeneration limit (Smith is No. 11). But newcomers to the series owe it to themselves to start making this appointment television as it's some of the best-produced, cheekiest and imaginative storytelling on the tube.

It's family-friendly and adult-pleasing, over-the-top and nightmarish, witty and deep all at the same time: "You are not of this world," someone tells the Doctor; the longtime saviour of Earth replies, "No, but I've put a lot of work into it."

Hard to tell how Smith's Doctor stands up yet. He spends a long time doing slapstick spit-takes with a child in her kitchen, and easing into the main plot (a spaceship run by a giant eyeball is seeking a prisoner who hides in the girl's home) takes time. But by the time the Doctor's full powers regain strength, Smith finds his feet and summons the menace and authority to make that eyeball blink. In that moment, he becomes the Doctor.

However, there's a dismaying trend away from scary and into silly in the Doctor trend (Christopher Eccleston, the first since the 2005 series re-start, was eccentric and sinister even when laughing). But the fact is, the Brits know how to be self-deprecating and tell a ripping yarn at the same time. Those just now hopping into that big blue box for a trip around space and time are in for a treat, because even when imperfect, Doctor Who is always worth keeping your eye on.

IS Harper Canada's Quisling?

Thursday, March 25. 2010

Prime Minister Harper officially endorses North American Union

October 3, 2008

[Source no longer available from said site]

Prime Minister Stephen Harper's appearance at the New York City based Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) on 25 September 2007, was an official endorsement and expression of solidarity on the North American Union agenda.

[Do you knwo the CFR is interesting is dismembering nation states?]

Harvard University educated CNN Veteran anchor Lou Dobbs, has further confirmed the official endorsement of the Stephen Harper Minority Conservative government on North American Union, or 'New America'.

Mr. Harper has been apparently directed by the principal funders of the Conservative Party of Canada, which are ideologically linked to the CFR, to assimilate Canada into a new “Fortress North America” which is controlled by the U.S. political-military-industrial complex by no later than 2010.

[So are major CPCers traitors to Canada]

Building a ‘North American Community’

Indeed, the Stephen Harper government has been reported to be in the process of getting various Canadian government departments and agencies to “harmonize”, with U.S. governmental agencies, to expedite the assimilation of Canada into the neo-conservative vision of a “Fortress North America”.

The Council of Foreign Relations has indeed published a book on its North American Union manifesto entitled “Building a North American Community”.

[All right we wait a debate in parliament on thi!]

John Manley, former Deputy Prime Minister in the Paul Martin Liberal Government is a co-author of this book.

[John Manley was Chretien's DMP, not MArtin's AFAIK and 2 notes

Manley is a traitorous republican and now you have to wonder why

Harper assigned to Manly the options for getting out of Afghanistan]

Yes, my fellow Canadians, that is why Stephen Harper with ONLY a minority government, has been able to easily pursue North American Union, with what Mr. Lou Dobbs has referred to as a cabal at the CFR.

Political party elites including those among the Liberals and Bloc Québécois, have apparently been all co-opted by the very wealthy Council of Foreign Relations.

[Seem to be a majority of MPs are being told what to do, hence

maybe why no debate in the HoC].

North American Union architects have used the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to legitimate the take over of Canada by U.S. interests as a “logical outcome” of the terms of NAFTA.

“When the leaders of Canada, Mexico, and the United States met in Texas recently they underscored the deep ties and shared principles of the three countries.

[Fact or fiction?]

‘Security & Prosperity’

The Council-sponsored Task Force applauds the announced “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America,” but proposes a more ambitious vision of a new community by 2010 and specific recommendations on how to achieve it,” states the Official Press Release for the book Building a North American Community, which is published by the CFR.

Mr. Harper’s speech at the CFR on 25 September 2007 affirms Mr. Harper’s Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPPNA) commitment to hand over Canada to full control by no later than 2010, to a political fraternity which is associated with the current U.S. Bush administration. Mr. Harper’s government apparently reports to the CFR.

[Obama is in, but Harper is still around]

In effect, the Government of Canada appears to be governed not from a sovereign Parliament in Ottawa, but run through a New York City-based political fraternity, which seeks to replace a democratic form of government, with the rule of society by a “Council of Wise Men”.

[Who is in charge of Canada?]

The architects of such a fascistic government look upon their vision of society, to be much more “efficient” in dealing with the need to vanquish enemies, i.e. “terrorists”.

[Are you saying there is a front?]

‘New World Order’

A terrorist is broadly defined by the architects of the North American Union, as any individual or group which opposes the New World Order agenda.

The CFR website also openly endorses the Conservative Party of Canada under Stephen Harper, alluding to his government having an alleged mandate to transform Canada substantively into a U.S. colony by implementing the recommendations of the CFR, book “Building a North American Community”.

[The CPC is being co-opted to sell Canada?]

There is therefore clearly a working association between the Harper government and the CFR to implement and execute the NAU agenda of the book entitled “Building a North American Community”, whether Canadians like it or not.

John Manley, former Liberal Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, who is part of an apparent Liberal-Conservative-Bloc parliamentary alliance on the SPPNA, also endorses the replacement of the Canada-U.S. border, with a new international border around Canada, the U.S., and also Mexico.

[Never trust Manley nor Harper!]

“To make North America more competitive and secure, the three leaders should announce a plan to establish a North American security and economic community by 2010.

The aim of this community would be to guarantee a free, safe, just and prosperous North America.

The boundaries of the community would be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter, within which the movement of people and products would be legal, orderly and secure.” John Manley stipulated on 23 March 2005, in the Wall Street Journal, in the aftermath of his Liberal government’s support of SPPNA.

Canadians who seek to save their country, must therefore seek to cancel NAFTA, as the legal basis for the greed-driven and fear associated pursuit of the destruction of Canada, under the pretext of the “War on Terrorism”.

[Time for this to go public big time if that is the case]

Next I find

Prime Minister Stephen Harper moves to put Canadian military under U.S. command

by Traci Lawson

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper

The Stephen Harper government has endorsed a military Agreement with the U.S. Bush administration, which destroys the independence of Canada’s military. Why do you think that Canada’s armed forces has been forced to fight alongside the U.S. military, in the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan? This is no coincidence. Canada’s military in no longer substantively independent from the U.S. military command structure, thanks to the Stephen Harper government and their confederates. This Agreement also obliges Canada to provide financial and military personnel support to the U.S. in Iraq

[Was this to do with the HoC vote on the change of mission in Afghanistan?]

Canadians no longer have substantive control in policies regarding the deployment of Canada’s own military. The once great peacekeeping tradition of the Canadian Armed Forces has been set aside, under the apparent U.S. continentalist agenda of the Stephen Harper government.

[One moment, is this Canadian policy or Harper Policy?]

Jim Kouri, a writer, reports in his article titled “North American Military Agreement Signed by U.S. and Canada” that, “in a political move that received little if any attention by the American news media, the United States and Canada entered into a military Agreement on 14 February 2008.”

[Link please]

Mr. Kouri elaborates that this Agreement “allows the armed forces from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a domestic civil emergency, even one that does not involve a cross-border crisis, according to a police commander involved in U.S. homeland security planning and implementation.”

[Wait a moment, when did this happen?]

The U.S. Bush administration has accomplished a goal that has alluded U.S. military planners since the War of 1812 that was lost to the Canadians: the military take-over of Canada. This is exactly the kind of process of colonial assimilation, that anti-Free Trade advocates had predicted back in the 1988 Canadian Federal Election.

[Please recall Mulroney was not in the bast interest of Canada and that

you have to wonder where this sudden surge for the FTA support and Mulroney

came from, eh Thomas D'Aquino]

Indeed, this fundamental breach of Canadian sovereignty is being carried out under the terms of the Security and Prosperity and Partnership North American Union (SPP-NAU) agenda, that in term has been substantively legitimated by the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). NAFTA uses the pre-text of trade as a political deception for the take-over of Canada by the U.S. political-military-industrial complex

[Please cite where in the FTA/NAFTA and the SPP-NAU documents]

In Canada, this Agreement which paves the way for the militaries of the U.S. and Canada to cross each other’s borders to fight “domestic emergencies”, was not announced either by Prime Minister Harper’s administration or the Canadian military. The Agreement met with protests and demonstrations by Canadians who are opposed to such treaties with the U.S. Bush administration.

[Who are these Canadian patriots who protested such an action?]

The Stephen Harper government, and the apparent traitorous parliamentarians who have elected to join in a “conspiracy of silence”, have now provided the U.S. political-military-industrial complex with a pretext to perpetrate the military occupation of Canada, against the constitutional will of Canadians.

[Time for a parliamentary debate on this if such is the case]

The Agreement was signed at U.S. Army North headquarters, Fort Sam Houston, Texas, by US Air Force General Gene Renuart, commander of NORAD and US Northern Command, or USNORTHCOM, and by Canadian Air Force Lt. General Marc Dumais, commander of Canada Command, without necessary parliamentary hearings and corresponding public scrutiny as required by Canadian constitutional law.

“This document is a unique, bilateral military plan to align our respective national military plans to respond quickly to the other nation’s requests for military support of civil authorities,” Renuart said in a statement published on the USNORTHCOM website. also documents that in May 2007, U.S. President Bush took it upon himself to sign the National Security Presidential Directive 51 which is also known as Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20. This neo-fascist directive authorizes the Office of the U.S. President to take on German Nazi Fuhrer-like powers to unilaterally declare a “national emergency”. The U.S. Office of the President can now usurp all functions of federal, state, local, territorial and tribal governments, without necessarily obtaining the approval of U.S. Congress to do so.

Mr. Kouri also observes that, “While Americans are being kept in the dark about this treaty, Canadian citizens are being totally ignored by their government.”

“The extent of ‘bi-national’ military integration is unprecedented and has received absolutely no public debate in the House of Commons. If Canadians wish to read about the details of this military agreement, Canadians must go to the Northern Command website to see any evidence of the new agreement.

Canada’s mass-media has been taken over by North American Union (NAU) supporting interests associated with the North American Competitiveness Council, that was apparently created by the U.S. Bush administration, as a parallel American government.

“Once the Canadian people discover they can be [legally invaded] by U.S. troops, they will take to the streets and protest and use the very effective weapon of civil disobedience. Canadians will not stand for occupation by a foreign army same as Americans won’t,” said a conservative columnist and commentator.

“I’m surprised that the Canadian people haven’t already displayed their opposition to such a treaty. Economics is one thing, but military use of force is quite another. We have our own police, security and military forces, thank you. We don’t been Americans coming into Canada with weapons,” she said. “And Americans don’t need Canadian soldiers.

Obama To Attend North American Union Meeting

Obama To Attend North American Union Meeting 200709Obama

Pledge to remove secrecy surrounding Leader’s summit remains unfulfilled

Steve Watson

Monday, July 20, 2009

President Obama will attend the controversial Security and Prosperity Partnership meeting with Mexican President Felipe Calderon and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper next month, it has been revealed.

The White House had not responded to requests to verify Obama’s schedule during the second week of August, however, a statement from Press Secretary Robert Gibbs titled “Upcoming Travel by the President,” confirms that Obama will attend the recently re-branded

“North American Leader’s Summit” in Mexico.

“The president will travel to Guadalajara, Mexico, August 9-10 to attend the North American Leaders Summit with Mexican President Felipe Calderon and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper,” the announcement, reported by World Net Daily, states.

“The summit meeting will provide an opportunity for the United States, Mexico, and Canada to engage on a broad range of issues, including economic recovery and competitiveness in North America, our shared interest in energy and the environment, and cooperation among our governments to promote the safety and welfare of our citizens, including continued close cooperation to counter the A/H1N1 influenza pandemic.” the statement continues.


Obama To Attend North American Union Meeting 250509BANNER

The Security and Prosperity Partnership has become much maligned owing to it’s quasi secretive advancement of a North American integration agenda.

Last year, one month prior to the meeting in April, documents were uncovered relating the fact that heads of state of the U.S., Mexico and Canada were beseeching business leaders to launch public relations campaigns in order to counter critics of the SPP.

The documents detailed how corporate representatives were urged to “humanize” North American integration, promote NAFTA success stories to employees and unions and evolve the harmonization agenda “without fueling protectionism”.

The move was seemingly a response to the continued exposition of the integration agenda, which led to representatives within Congress petitioning the government on the secretiveness of the SPP and multiple states introducing resolutions calling on their federal representatives to halt work on the so called “North American Union”.

During his nomination campaign, Obama pledged to end the secrecy surrounding the SPP meetings and to conduct them with full transparency.

[Does anyone have any provable documentation?]

His decision to remain silent on whether or not he will even attend the meeting until just a few weeks beforehand has guaranteed advance criticism.

Critics will also cast a keen eye over Obama’s attendance given his strong worded campaign pledge to “amend” NAFTA in favor of American workers by stemming the loss of manufacturing jobs.

Since he has entered office Obama has simply reiterated the SPP’s call to advance without stoking “protectionism”. In a joint press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, during his first official foreign visit, Obama responded to a question regarding the renegotiation of NAFTA by saying “Now is a time where we have to be very careful about any signs of protectionism.”

Eyebrows were also raised when Obama temporarily removed economist Austan Goolsbee from his staff when it was revealed that Goolsbee had told Canadian officials that Obama’s campaign promises to renegotiate NAFTA were purely campaign rhetoric.

What is this?

Will loose lips sink anti-NAFTA ships?

Canada's CTV says Obama's economic advisor Austan Goolsbee told a Canadian official not to worry about Obama's "rhetoric."

By Andrew Leonard

Talking Points Memo points us to a new report from Canada's CTV in which the news organization fingers Austan Goolsbee, Barack Obama's chief economic advisor, as the man who told Canada not to worry about Obama's anti-NAFTA rhetoric.

According to CTV, the conversation between Goolsbee and the Canadian consulate general took place in Chicago. CTV also reported that on Thursday night "CTV spoke with Goolsbee, but he refused to say whether he had such a conversation with the Canadian government office in Chicago. He also said he has been told to direct any questions to the campaign headquarters."

Having been apprised of this information, How the World Works feels it should retract its unsourced suggestion that this whole affair smelled like a political dirty trick. Goolsbee's refusal to affirm or deny that the conversation took place, the Obama campaign's original cautious response that "the story was not accurate" and the likely fact that Goolsbee almost undoubtedly believes that Obama's vigorous criticism of NAFTA is indeed just rhetoric, make the story a good bit more believable than it first appeared. One doubts that this was an authorized communication between the Obama campaign and the Canadian consulate, however.

Apparently, economists just don't know when to keep their mouths shut during a political campaign. One hearkens back to Bush's economic advisor, Greg Mankiw, spouting off about the benefits of outsourcing during the 2004 campaign, for which he was royally spanked.

In the interests of fairness, it should be noted that CTV is now saying that "the Clinton campaign has [also] made indirect contact with the Canadian government, trying to reassure Ottawa of their support despite Clinton's words."

The Clinton campaign "denied the claim."

Conclusion: The Citizens of Canada must make PM Harper accountable for all of the above!

Also Did Harper say Canada should now join the New World Order?

Secure your on-line identity

Recently on twitter I saw some 'tweeters' I knew of sending me garbage tweets and I asked them directly on Twitter "Did you send this"?

The answer was "no" and asked on Tweeter how come this is happening?

One answer was hackers trying to look for accounts they can break into. Another said that she was phished recently?

This reminds me of customers asking me did my account get hacked?

Seems like old habits die hard. Hackers are still trying to steal your online identity without a doubt.

As I pointed out at an evening presentation on 1 March 2010 do not make it easy for hackers to access 'crack' your password.

What is meant by that?

Let's examine 4 layers of password.

Level 1 - The Easy password

bear husband LOVER 19590112 &*)%%%!@!@

possible passwords but the one think they have in common is that a password cracker can most likely decode these.

Level 2 - Mixing 2 cases

Bear Dave bear123 !forget !$5%7*

All right maybe a little tough but the first 3 might be decodeable

Level 3 - Mixing 3 cases

Maybe these are tougher but better yet

Level 4 - Mixing 4 cases

2@4$Date 6^Gu3T0 Gr3Ym!m!

Good luck cracking those .

What to do if you think you have been compromised

1) Update then run your anti-virus!! Most anti-viral programmes come with some ant-spyware. The key is update all definitions daily!

2) Run anti-spyware programmes. There are other malicious software (malware) that anti-viral programmes will not pick up.

I recommend you at least run 3

a) Superantispyware found at

b) Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware found at

c) Spybot - Search & Destroy found at

These 3 programmes will find malicious software that is not viral yet can compromise your security. Again please update these daily.

Doctor Who series 5 news round-up by Simon Brew

Saturday, February 6. 2010
From Den of Geek :

More casting news, episode titles, and filming locations, as we gather together the latest Doctor Who stories…

Published on Feb 4, 2010

Firstly, we should address the series numbering confusion. We're plumping for calling the upcoming run of Doctor Who series five for the time being, given that it's the fifth series since the BBC revived the show. We're traditionalists at heart, so would like to go with a different number (and certainly not the series one that the BBC is reportedly touting Matt Smith's adventures as), but series 5 seems to be the one most people are centering on. So we'll stick with it for the minute. We figure we're going to make someone unhappy whichever we plump for.

Anyway, on with the latest news round-up...

The latest issue of Doctor Who magazine has revealed the first three episode titles for the upcoming series of the show. The first two stories, both written by Steven Moffat, will be The Eleventh Hour and The Beast Below. Then Mark Gatiss' Victory Of The Daleks will be third in line.

Sophie Okonedo is lined up to appear in the new series. We understand that the actress, who starred in the film Hotel Rwanda, is playing someone by the name of Liz Ten, and will turn up in the second episode of the new run. The story was reported by The Sun, but we'd heard this one before, and believe it to be true.

Filming for the show has headed to Stonehenge over the last week. If you want to read more about that, and beware that there are spoilers, then follow this link.

Finally, and this should be taken with a pinch of salt as it's coming from the Daily Star, it's been reported that the Doctor will have two assistants during the new series. We know about Karen Gillan as Amy Pond who comes with a back story and fiancée of her own, apparently, but there's also another companion due to hop on board the Tardis later in the series. As we said though, it's the Daily Star.

Doctor Who returns to our screens in the spring.
