    Looking for work - Could use a hand with leads/input.

    So I am getting a bit desperate to find work. Sent out 100+ resumes since the end of September when my previous contract expired. I have had 5 or 6 interviews for part-time work over the last month but unfortunately every potential employer is scared off by my Masters degree and the prospect of...

    Looking for a picture of a building

    Apologies if there is a better spot for this but maybe someone can give me a hand as I'm looking for a photo (or even some additional info) for a specific building and haven't been able to find anything yet. I've looked on the Archives website and couldn't find anything, but I figured it's worth...

    A couple questions for Planners about the Planning job market.

    So I finished my Masters in Planning at York back in May and I was wondering if I could get some thoughts from those of you that are planners here. I haven't been able to find a job yet. I've been sending out resumes to municipal postings in the GTA, as well as to the various private firms in...

    Arcade Fire - Toronto Island

    Anyone else go? It was pretty awesome and hopefully if you're a fan of their recent album (or just then in general) you were there because it was well worth it.

    Advice - Going to Boston/New England

    I'm going to Boston in a couple weeks with a couple friends and my girlfriend on a bit of a roadtrip. We'll be in Boston for 4 nights, then we're driving up to Burlington Vermont for a night before coming home (wanted to take a different route home since the I90 is a boring drive). So far we...

    Thought I'd start a thread for people down on the waterfront. There have been a lot of discussions about the area in a bunch of different threads (Cityplace, the various condos on Lakeshore, the waterfront redevelopment, etc) but I figured this area really deserves its own neighbourhood thread...

    "It's a renters market..." article and help with getting rent decreased My girlfriend and I live in the apartment building described in the first half of this article from today's Star (the italicized part). We've been living here since March 07, and after the...

    Question for those who know computers.

    So after 5 years, my girlfriend's computer seems to have died today. Pretty sure it's the motherboard because it died abruptly while she was using it (other option is that it's the power source, but it died the same way as my old computer, which was a motherboard problem). She also has a big old...

    Toronto Cathedral/Church Preservation and Maintenance - Is Tourism the Answer?

    The original article from Apr 11, 2004: I'm digging up this old article from another thread to start a bit of dialogue that I'm hoping will help me with my potential masters thesis, but also look at architectural and heritage preservation. I didn't continue with the thread that the quoted...

    posted to wrong section

    I posted a topic in the city photos section yesterday about London's roof garden by accident. It belongs in the world photos section. Just wasn't paying attention. If someone could move that to the proper section that'd be swell. Thanks

    London's Kensington Roof Garden

    Figured these might be nice to see on a cold blustery day... Last April while I was in Europe (There's some other pictures hanging around here of Ypres, Brugges and Brussels) we were in London for 4 days. Having already been there we decided to do some of the alternative touristy spots. So we...

    Spacing's "ThinkToronto" Contest

    Just wondering if anyone is planning on entering Spacing's contest? Since I'm starting my masters in Urban Planning in September I figured this would be a good opportunity to at least get in to the groove and see what type of chops I have. I'm using Sketch-up right now, which I just...

    JN_12's Euro Adventure - Ypres (WWI Battlegrounds)

    Ypres is about 2 hours West of Brussels and we spent most of a day here on a private tour of the WWI Battlegrounds. It's hard to really put into words what it's like to be at a place where hundreds of thousands died. Surreal is maybe the best way to describe it, but it's definitely a humbling...

    JN_12's Euro Adventure - Brugges

    Brugges is a city in Flanders, roughly 1.5 hours northwest of Brussels. Entirely Dutch, much of the inner city is pedestrian as most streets are little more than one lane wide. The inner city is also a UNESCO Heritage Site. Most people walked but bicycles were prominent and instead of rows upon...

    JN_12 euro adventure - Brussels

    Just a touch of Brussels. We used this as our base for Belgium and made day trips to Brugges and Ypres. I'll post those pictures tomorrow. We stayed across from the EU parliament as well. These pictures are mostly of the touristy places (Grand Place, St Michel Cathedral, etc). Much of the...

    JN_12's Euro adventure - St Pancras Station

    First installment of pictures from my recent overseas journey. My girlfriend and I spent a couple hours waiting for our train to Brussels, and took some pictures of the new St Pancras International Station. The exterior was being renovated and there was too much scaffolding that made it...

    Flying American flags in Canada

    So, last month I was in Europe (Belgium, Ireland and England) and I noticed among many differences that these countries do not fly other country's flags. For example, in front of the Grand Place in Brussels you won't find a Dutch flag. However, here everywhere flies both a Canadian and...
