  1. Shooting - Men's Double Trap: Fehaid Al-Deehani (IOA/Kuwait) won the gold medal over Marco Innocenti of Italy 26-24. Kuwaiti athletes are now competing under the Olympic flag rather than the Kuwaiti flag.
  2. Women's 200m Medley Swimming: Katinka Hosszu (Hungary) wins the gold at 2.06.58. Siobhan-Marie took silver at 2.06.88 while Madeline Dirado of the USA secured bronze at 2.08.79. Oldsmar-born Sydney Pickrem finished sixth at 2.11.22. The American Medal count is at 26 with 9 gold medals. The host nation Brazil remains at 14 as well as the Russian Federation at fifth with 12 medals and the former Soviet republics of Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan with their respective silver and bronze medals.
  3. Can't they at least upgrade to Windows Embedded 8.1 software instead? On a side note, be on the lookout for PRESTO units on New Eglinton territory. #7564 was the first installed (but yet to be in operation) on 86D this evening.
  4. August 9, 2016 Child left alone on the TTC bus
  5. Same with the Orion Vs, Flyers and many Fishbowls in its heyday. On a personal note, congratulations, New TTC Operator. Looking forward to see you on the road.
  6. Men's Volleyball: Latvia defeated Canada 2 - 1 while Cuba pummeled the hosts, Brazil 2 - 1. Canada is set to play Brazil tomorrow.

  8. Archery: - Mexico 6 - 0 Georgia - Japan 6 - 2 Ukraine - Brazil 0 - 6 Italy
  9. This thread is for discussion in regards to the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro including our Canadian participation. CANADA: - Canada defeated Brazil in both rugby matches. - In Women's soccer, Canada scored a 2-0 win over Australia and 3-1 over Zimbabwe. OTHER: - The United States defeated the People's Republic of China 119-62 in men's basketball. The Americans lead in the medal standings. NOTES: - In spite of the doping scandal, Russia sent 271 athletes since the track and field team is banned from the Olympics. - South Sudan and Kosovo made their Olympic debuts. South Sudan gained independence in 2011 while Kosovo granted independence in 2008, which however, is recognized by 109 UN members including Canada. - in a bizarre twist, Taiwan aka Republic of China competes as Chinese Taipei since 1984. The original China debuted in the 1932 Olympics. But due to the One-China policy, in which the PRC recognizes as the sole legitimate government of "China", ROC was forced to use the Chinese Taipei name.

  14. And my friends, there's one of photos to share from my collection:
  15. Let's introduce mine to begin with:
  16. Since I came to Canada in March 1998 from the Philippines when I was four, I've experienced many memories and moments from the late 1990s to 2000s in terms of pop culture, music, food, events, etc... To begin with me: MUSIC: Britney Spears, Cher, Savage Garden, Shania Twain, Backstreet Boys, Venga Boys, N'Sync, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Nas, Shaggy, Justin Timberlake, No Doubt, Green Day, Stabilo, Michael Jackson, Ashanti, Christina Milan, Amerie, Sean Paul, etc... TELEVISION: Dragon Ball, Pokemon, Franklin the Turtle, SpongeBob SquarePants, Jimmy Neutron, Hey Arnold!, Fillmore, Recess, Fairly OddParents, Atomic Betty, Kim Possible, Proud Family, Ripping Friends, Futurama, The Simpsons, UnderGrads, and several various channels FOOD: 90s/2000s Chip and Soda packaging, McDonald's, Fish and Chips, Laura Secord, Free Breakfast at a school's church hall, etc... EVENTS IN REAL LIFE: 9/11, Blackout of 2003, 2004 Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, Stop the Violence with the Argos in 2005, 2008 TTC Strilke, etc... SPORTS: Skating, Basketball, Soccer Baseball, Volleyball VIDEO GAMES: Street Fighter, Sonic, WCW/nWO Revenge, 007 Nightfire, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, NBA ShootOut, NHL Championship 2000, Fear Effect, Jak and Daxter trilogy, NHL 06/07 and several DreamCast, XBOX, Playstation and Nintendo games. What's your favorite moment or memory when you were small to high school graduation?
  17. If my mind is right the renumbering of the AVENUE ROAD bus from 5 to 13 is a welcome change because the TTC needs it for Line 5. So the final result would be 13A "Queen's Park" and 13B "Gerrard". No changes to the routing.
  18. Excellent rendering! I can see the TTC logo on the front right side is stretched off a little. Nevertheless, the rest of your photoshopping skills is gloriously perfect.
  19. If I read the 74 MOUNT PLEASANT article on Transit Toronto, then there's your educated guess dated February 1999. They should have at least moved the 33 FOREST HILL when Mount Dennis opened in the first place. But I'm surprised 106 is heading back to Arrow Road.
  20. Didn't know its supposed to work. But sorry for my mistake.
  21. I'm getting the grapevines but come September, 100 FLEMINGDON PARK and 34 EGLINTON EAST will be massively restructured. Can anyone (including @Xtrasteve and @leylandvictory2) confirm or deny?
  22. Set #582 was at Kennedy this morning (viewed from car #5062).
