The year of Newfoundland’s triumph

in About Books/Arts & Culture/Journalism by

1974. For most of us, it’s just a year – either one buried in distant memory, or one we are too young to have even experienced. Places have a longer memory, however, and for Newfoundland and Labrador, the year was a momentous one. It marked the province’s twenty-fifth anniversary of Confederation with Canada: an event celebrated with awkward abandon, including a series of disastrous dinners and fishing expeditions with the country’s premiers. For a new generation that had grown up after the entire Confederation imbroglio, it was an exciting time, and one aptly reflected in the province’s first big national game-show triumph. Reach For the Top was a quiz-style trivia program broadcast nationally on CBC television from 1966 to 1989 (with a brief revival in the mid 2000s). Teams of high school students across the country competed for prominence, and no Newfoundland team had ever won. But that year—1974—a team…

Ed Riche on satire and our capacity for self-delusion

in Arts & Culture/Journalism/Uncategorized by

Ed Riche is an award-winning playwright, screenwriter, novelist, and more. However, he’s perhaps best known for his humour, and especially his satire. But according to Riche, we are now living in a “post-satiric” age. It’s one in which the seemingly satirical often turns out to be true; and in which there is a feeling in some quarters that speech which hurts should be shut down. How does a satirist ply their trade in a post-satiric age? “You just get ready to absorb more blows,” he says. “We’ve got the unthinkable – Donald Trump in the White House. That’s a punch line. It’s beyond all comprehension. Every day we look at that same reality and go ‘How could this have ever happened?’ He’s a horror clown, he’s a con man, he’s a grifter, he’s an idiot, he’s a crook, and yet he’s the most powerful man in the world. “And on…

Penashue dodges CBC reporter’s question … again

in Daily Indygestion by

On March 5 CBC reporter Peter Cowan asked former Labrador MP Peter Penashue how donation errors were made in his 2011 campaign. Penashue dodged the question, as he has in the past, and instead turned the conversation around, accusing Cowan and the CBC of treating him “unfairly”. Penashue also told Cowan he had learned one of Cowan’s colleagues was running the Liberal campaign, referring to former CBC radio host Cindy Wall, who retired two years ago and is now running the campaign for Liberal candidate Yvonne Jones. Penashue’s former Labrador adviser, Donna Paddon, also used to work for CBC. Read CBC’s full story here.

2012 Massey Lectures to kick off in St. John’s

in Daily Indygestion by

In what could be the most exciting CBC Massey Lecture series yet, world renowned theoretical physicist Neil Turok will share his thoughts and beliefs about the coming paradigm shift, the quantum revolution, when he delivers his first lecture at the St. John’s Arts and Culture Centre on Oct. 10. His new CBC Massey Lectures book, “The Universe Within: From Quantum to Cosmos”, was published by Anansi Press earlier this month. Turok is the Director of Canada’s Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and previously held positions as professor of physics at Princeton and Chair of Mathematical Physics at Cambridge. He has developed fundamental theories of the cosmos and, with colleague Stephen Hawking, developed the Hawking-Turok Instanton Theory, which describes the birth of inflationary universes. Further, he developed a cyclic universe scenario with Paul Steinhardt which is outlined in their critically acclaimed book Endless Universe: Beyond the Big Bang – Rewriting Cosmic History.
