Quebec budget woes

I will wander (just for today, though) on my series on medicare. I want to talk about the more political woes in Québec regarding the budget.

I am sure that most people by now know a lot about this whole flurry regarding Mr. Charest's most recent budget (but we can go over it again). In it, he spent all of the new money from Ottawa on a tax cut pour les Québecois that he has been promising for years. Both of the opposition parties have publicly opposed the budget. Even though the ADQ (Action démocratique du Québec) is on the Right and thus for tax cuts, they oppose it in this case arguing that the money should be spent on debt relief. The PQ (Parti Québecois) also is against the budget, saying that the money could be better spent aiding the healthcare system, and funding the education system as well.

At the beginning, Charest and the Liberals were not at all thinking about backing away from their proposed budget, even if that meant an election (the last Québec election was in March…

LG KE970: prepare to be bedazzled

The LG KE970, also popularly known as the LG Shine is the second in line of the highly acclaimed Black Label series. Expectations from the LG KE970 or the LG Shine were very high after the tremendous response received by the earlier Black Label handset – the LG Chocolate. The LG KE970 is completely opposite of the LG Chocolate. The LG KE970 boasts of a very shiny stainless steel casing against the black Chocolate.

Being a part of the same Black Label series, the LG KE970 maintains the same simplistic sophistication. A minimalist shiny stainless steel casing with high reflective index is responsible for the name 'Shine' that is more popular than the traditional alpha-numeric KE970. The high definition 2.2 inch TFT screen too sports a mirror effect, thereby making the LG KE970 a real time substitute of mirror for a quick hair check! A row of conventional keys on the top slide and highly tactile numeric keys are much easier than the unresponsive touch sensitive keys.
