Temporal Power spinning renewable energy wheels
The Globe and Mail
For centuries, spinning wheels have been used to store energy. That's how potter's wheels work, with the energy in the disk helping maintain a consistent velocity. Fly-wheels are also key components of steam engines, where they convert energy from pistons into consistent rotational motion. Even toy cars with friction motors make use of fly-wheel technology.

Construction work leaves footprint
Winnipeg Free Press
The Manitoba economy churned out 8,000 new jobs in October and 11,400 new positions over the past 12 months, new Statistics Canada data show, and a government official said the booming construction industry deserves much of the credit. "I think the storyline on jobs is that construction is driving things," Wilf Falk, the province's chief statistician, said. "That could be a reflection of all the infrastructure stuff that's going on and all of the road work that's going on," Falk added. "There are more people employed because there is more construction work going on."

Western Canada's economic and construction outlook
Daily Commercial News
Dividing Canada in two as East versus West is simply an easy representation based on a map. In such a picture, the East — comprised of Quebec and the Atlantic Region — has a population proportion (30 per cent) that is almost exactly balanced by a "standard" West made up of the three Prairie provinces and B.C. (a combined 30 per cent). The cross-beam is currently level. In the years ahead, the western "seat" will take on relatively more weight while the eastern seat, due to slower provincial population growth rates, will lift higher.

Jenpeg likely to resume operations after Pimicikamak, Hydro reach agreement
The Carillon
Cross Lake Cree protesters are likely to hand back control of the Jenpeg power station within days after First Nations leaders clinched a preliminary deal with Manitoba Hydro and the provincial government to address years of flooding and other grievances, their chief said recently. Pimicikamak protesters seized control of the Jenpeg grounds, 19 kilometres southwest of their homes last month, locking out all employees apart from a skeleton staff needed to keep the plant running.

New green for Confusion Corner?
Winnipeg Sun
Confusion Corner could go green in a different direction, if the city approves the new Corydon-Osborne plan. The iconic intersection, currently marked by large green signs showing how to navigate it, could instead become a transit-oriented parkland. The new Corydon-Osborne plan, released recently and heading to its first round of discussion at city centre committee on Nov. 12, calls for more green space to anchor both Corydon and Osborne villages.

The machine can be rented for a cost of about $3 per hour. To thaw an eight-foot frost like Winnipeg had last winter, it could take up to five days. Owner Ron Nowakowski said he's already seen lots of interest in the product.
