Meeting of April 26, 2015
Early birds arriving around 11 O’clock were entertained by a series of clips compiled by Sylvain st-Pierre: ATTACK OF THE SPONSORS FROM MARS. These often hilarious TV adverts were mostly new to us.
The SF Cinema Matinée, hosted by Keith Braithwaite, featured BUGS. Five movie titles were on offer, the winner was THEM!. The audience was impressed especially by the strong dialogue and reasonably sound science. It holds up well.
Paleo Art, again presented by Keith Braithwaite, Jurassic Art–Painting the Prehistoric Past, proved very interesting especially as he showed the evolution of our interpretation of the fossils.
Swimming with Cyber Sharks–-Tips on Protecting Your Computer From Attack: Steven Janssen gave a presentation on protecting our computers. The main lesson learned was to create strong Pa$$Words. Common phishing tactics and frauds were also discussed.
The umbrella competition– There were 2 submissions, A very elaborate one by Sylvain St-Pierre that was decorated with pictures from Bug movies, and a little one by Mark Burakoff that would have sheltered a beetle.
Dominic Durocher had some of his models on display. Click the thumbnail for full size-ed photo.
