I’ve been hiding since that horrible Jays loss last night, 10-1 for the White Socks, that hurts…

The Raptors did a better job representing the 6ix with a better story, a game 5 victory over the Pacers – they’re now one win away from clinching the series.
You know, what though? It’s hard to care about other teams when we’ve got so much action here in our own city, and a good problem to have ….Working out two playoff schedules for one venue!!
Your London Lightning start playoffs next week at Budweiser Gardens, and your London Knights are just on a TEAR leading their series with Eerie 3-0 after last night’s 5-1 win at home. Game four is tonight with a 7pm puckdrop.
Call for Coding to be Added to Ontario Public School Curriculum
Wow, if grade seven me heard this news I’d be frightened, but I do think it’s time. The Thames Valley District School Board wants Ontario to add coding to the elementary curriculum. The call asks for letters to be sent to all public school boards in the province asking for support, they passed this motion at last night’s school board meeting for London. British Columbia and Nova Scotia have already moved ahead on this..
Here’s a quote from trustee Jake Skinner…who probably gets Simpsons’ Skinner jokes all the time:
“Coding is simply a precise set of instructions that a coder gives to a computer…it’s about teaching kids about logic, teaching kids about computational thinking…. The curriculum needs to be built for the age that we live in. We used to teach Latin and that was good for that time, but in today’s environment coding needs to be added to the curriculum.”
Uber Sexual Assault Case
Although Londoners are just figuring out Uber, GTA residents have had time to get to know the APP. York Region police are reporting that a 30-year-old Uber driver was just charged after a woman claimed she was sexually assaulted using the service near Yonge and Major Mackenzie in Richmond Hill. The driver allegedly stopped and parked in a parking lot near 16th Avenue and Woodbine when the assault occurred.
Uber’s statemen from spokesperson Susie Heatht:
“We take every safety incident very seriously and are committed to the safety of everyone who uses Uber.”
