casino blog
30 August 2013

Canadian players have a fantastic range of online casinos to choose from, all of which are Canadian player relevant. This means that the casinos accept Canadian dollars, they support languages such as English and French, as well as several other major world languages and they all provide local toll-free Canadian support.

We have spent hours surfing the net and testing each site, finding what each site has to offer and we have found some surprising results. There are in fact countless Canadian online casinos that we can recommend signing up to and the majority of these perfectly secure Canadian friendly online casinos are powered either by Playtech or Microgaming. There are also several Realtime Gaming (RTG) and Rival powered online casinos which accept Canadian players.

Robert Kubica, a professional formula one driver, suffered a devastating accident in Italy just 3 weeks ago on 6th February. Many who saw the crash did not expect him to emerge, but after medics raced to the scene he was taken to hospital for emergency care.

An Armco barrier went through the floor of the Skoda that he was driving and almost completely took his hand off. He also suffered fractures in his arm, leg and hand. His surgeon confirmed that Kubica had undergone surgery to reattach his hand, and that he has begun rehabilitation by doing finger exercises to get his hand moving again.

All in all, he had to go through three separate operations to deal with his horrific injuries, but thankfully it seems he is well on the road to recovery now and has been released from intensive care. He is still in the Santa Corona Hospital in Petra Ligure, however things are starting to look up.

If you are visiting New York then you just have to visit Niagara Falls, even if you are just on a weekend break there is no excuse with the Niagara Falls day trip, from New York by air.  The day trip to this magnificent thunderous product of the last ice age is now possible in as little as 12 hours.  With round trips from mid town New York to Upstate, then on to Buffalo airport for a quick transfer to the Falls.

The River Niagara stretches across the Canadian – United States border in both the state of New York and the Province of Ontario, carved by relentless ice sheets 18,000 years ago.  Niagara Falls is the second largest water fall in the world to the Victoria Falls of South Africa.  The awesome power of the combined 750,000 gallons of water dispersed over the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls every second makes this an inspiring place to visit.

10 February 2011

The Cricket World Cup is the premier international championship of men’s cricket. It is a One Day International event, also known as an ODI. The first international cricket match was in 1844 played between the US and Canada, but the first credited test match was not until 1877 between Australia and England.

In the 1900 Olympics in Paris, cricket was included as an Olympic sport and England won against France, winning the gold medal. In 1912, the first Triangular Tournament was played which was a tournament involving all three of the test playing countries of that time which were England, South Africa and Australia. This was not very successful and so in the following years only two teams played in a tournament until 1999, when the next multilateral tournament was played called the Asian Test Championship.

Over time, the number if international test cricket teams increased. In 1928 West Indies became a test team, followed by New Zealand in 1930, India in 1932 and Pakistan in 1952. However, throughout this time international test matches continued to be bilateral (two countries).

The games held in Olympia, Greece were stopped during the 5th century AD, after a span of over a millennium, and they were once again revised in the 19th century by Baron Pierre do Coubertin.
