Canadian Federal Gross-Debt History

Usually, Canadian Federal Gross-Debt History focuses on only the accumulated budget deficit.  The expression extremely rarely focuses on the remaining 80 percent of government deficits, that is, on unfunded or unsecured liabilities.  Take this example: FRASER RESEARCH BULLETIN; April 2019 Examining Federal Debt in Canada by Prime Ministers Since Confederation, 2019 By Jake Fuss and Milagros Palacios Full article The following graph is from that article. Note: Few people ever (and neither do Fuss and Palacios) address governments’ unfunded liabilities (at least not in the indicated report). Gross Debt Commonly, Gross Debt is the sum of the accumulated budget deficit.  That is allocated or borrowed money to pay for government … Continue reading

World population projections – Beware of sources

Updated 2019 05 24, to present more “precise” estimates of annual numbers of deaths caused by abortions, worldwide. UN world population projections are widely known.  Two other sources of world population projections deserve to be known as well.  They are the Wittgenstein Centre and IIASA.  The credibility of any of those sources is in the eye of the beholder.  Time will tell whose projections realistically predict what the future brings. Contrary to the UN projections, the IIASA medium (most likely) scenario indicates that world population will increase to 9.2 billion by 2050, peak at 9.4 billion around 2070 and start a slow decline to 9.0 billion by the end of … Continue reading

Freedom and Equality vs Rules and Power

Updated 2019 05 09 Freedom and equality vs rules and power — all are essential for symbiotic coexistence in a successful, thriving society. Many clamor for “freedom and equality” and forget that the price for that is “duties and obligations.” Fairness is a bit more difficult to achieve. There is little fairness in equality of outcomes. The latter is the enemy of and defeats the former.  Still, a successful, thriving society uses the right tools to establish a good balance in the apparent conflict between freedom and equality vs rules and power, by allowing and promoting them to exist in a constructive symbiosis. “The young men who are not embraced … Continue reading

Click-Through Rate Page Views per Visit – SEO and GSC

This is Part 5 of Web page ranking and search engine optimization : SEO Updated 2019 04 22, to make addendum. Click-Through Rate (CTR) vs Page Views per Visit – The first is high on Google’s priority list, the second apparently not so much, leading to Google ignoring 94 percent of the traffic to dads&things, or does it?  Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Google Search Console (GSC) help with sorting some of that out. Click-through rate (CTR) is the ratio of users who click on a specific link to the number of total users who view a page, email, or advertisement.

Female innocence is what media and courts say it is

Adele Horin (†2015) was a feminist who wrote about female innocence. The Australian Advocate should have been so hard on Adele Horin. The editors of the Sydney Morning Herald she wrote for obviously felt that she was doing a good job, or else she could not have been a media award winner. Adele Horin was just trying to make a living and delivered in her articles nothing more than what her editors expected of her. “Adele Horin, writer for the Sydney Morning Herald, is no stranger to the trappings of wish-fulfilment journalism. For many journalists, you see what you need to see, and in the case of Adele Horin, men … Continue reading

Why suddenly outrage over touching by Sen. Biden ?

Updated 2019 04 09: to add comments on and links to information on VAWA. Why suddenly outrage over touching by Sen. Biden?  No one should be eager to participate in the campaign of outrage, disdain, scorn and outright deprecation against touching by Sen. Joe Biden.  The largely hysterical reactions against him in the aftermath of the #MeToo movement address nothing criminal, as far as anyone has determined, so far.  It does not seem likely that anything worse than that will surface. The curious aspect of the media’s overreaction is that, if Sen. Joe Biden did anything that warrants the media feeding frenzy now, what is it that triggered it?  Is … Continue reading

Web Pages : Page Rank vs Page Reach – SEO

This is Part 4 of Web page ranking and search engine optimization : SEO Updates: 2019 03 31: to provide information and links to source of information on numbers of backlinks linking to fathersforlife.org. 2019 04 18: to add link to Part 5.

Conundrum : SEO rising Traffic falling Web Rank

This is Part 3 of an examination of Web page ranking and search engine optimization (SEO). The conundrum of SEO, increasing traffic and declining web rank caused me to send out a help request (SEO: search engine optimization). That opened a Pandora’s box.  With that help request, I posted  a graph that illustrates the nature of the problem.  The following is a more recent version of that graph. That  Google Analytics for WordPress had all along shown only a tiny fraction, only about 2%, of the actual daily page views that the host server indicated per its version of Google Analytics data did not bother me so much. Nor did … Continue reading

Facebook prevents posting of comments

Update 2019 03 28: The inability to post comments to Facebook has been resolved. On 2019 03 27 I experienced that Facebook prevents comment posting.  It does not appear due to ill will.  Some would consider it a glitch, even though the problems began in the morning and still existed at night.  One was the inability to view comments that were posted (at least the originators, someone else and I, thought so), and the other was, perhaps, but not obviously, the inability to posts comments. I will just publish some examples here and keep doing so, until the problems get resolved.  It would be a shame, having tried to put … Continue reading
