    TTC lost at least $64M to fare evasion, broken Presto readers in 2018

    Toronto’s Auditor General is sounding the alarm on TTC fare evasion. A recent audit found the issue cost the better way at least $64 million to fare evasion and faulty Metrolinx equipment last year.

    The figure indicates approximately five per cent of passengers evaded their fares in 2018. Streetcars were the biggest targets of fare evasion, with auditors estimating about 15 per cent of passengers avoiding their fares in 2018.

    Did you know?

    The world's largest margarita was made in Las Vegas. The enormous drink was 32,176 liters and “served” in a 17-foot-tall tank. It took 60 people 300 hours to create.

    The drink, called the “Lucky Rita,” was created to celebrate the opening of the Flamingo Hotel’s Margaritaville Casino in 2011.

    Transit advocates protesting possible TTC provincial takeover

    Transit advocacy group TTCriders and supporters will raise the alarm about the province's plan to take over TTC subways this morning. They will be kicking off in a coordinated city-wide day of action.

    Volunteers will distribute flyers at 35 subway stops simultaneously between 8am and 9am. They will read "don’t steal our subway." Commuters will also be urged to contact their MPPs to stop the provincial subway takeover.

    Frontline TTC workers will be wearing shirts that read “Keep our Transit Public” over their uniforms today as part of a silent protest against the premier’s plan.

    Mistakes cost Leafs third straight loss

    Despite their scoring chances, the Maple Leafs’ defensive mistakes and sloppy play cost them two points in the standings as Toronto lost its third straight game, 3-2 to the Capitals last night at Scotiabank Arena.

    The Leafs are home to Montreal tomorrow, a team just three points back of Toronto for third in the Atlantic.

    Why is a rocket launched from west to east in the equatorial plane of earth?

    For a Rocket to reach an orbit around the Earth, it should have a velocity of ~7,8 km/s i.e., Circular Orbital Velocity.
    The rocket has to start from rest position and reach this velocity.
    But you have to notice that the whole time, the Earth is rotating.


    This rotation is from West to East.
    At the equator, the velocity is rotation of the Earth is ~ 450 m/s. This gives us an inertia. Thus, to make use of this, most rockets fly East.


    If we launch towards West, we have to overcome this 450 m/s. That means more rocket mass and therefore more cost.
    That said, there are some rockets which fly West.

    Most of them are launched by Israel because any Israeli rocket flying East would fly over hostile territory.

    This would be perceived as aggression.

What a doorknob, putting saving the cost of someone to clean up the lot over people's safety.
    Have a great day!
    We must have the same landlord at work. We have had transport trucks slipping and sliding at the back of our building for a while now. I am also trying not to land on my butt getting from the parking lot to our building.

    Cheapskates!

    These are probably the same protesters who evade paying their fares.

    If you can answer this riddle, apparently you're a psychopath ...


    While at her own mother's funeral, a woman meets a guy she doesn't know. She thinks this guy is amazing — her dream man — and is pretty sure he could be the love of her life. However, she never asked for his name or number and afterwards could not find anyone who knows who he was. A few days later the girl kills her own sister.


    Question: Why did she do it?





    \

















    The girl kills her sister in the hopes that the guy
    will come to the funeral and she can see him again.

    On Thursday night, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket carrying the first-ever private moon mission. The $100 million mission is headed by SpaceIL, a nonprofit organization based in Israel. The company designed and built the 1,322-pound lunar lander called “Beresheet,” which means “in the beginning” (the first words in the Bible).Beresheet — which is equipped with cameras, magnetic sensors, and transmitters to relay data to and from to Earth — launched on Thursday inside the top of a Falcon 9 rocket in Cape Canaveral, Florida.SpaceIL started as a Google Lunar XPrize team and is backed by South African billionaire Morris Kahn. If the Beresheet mission survives a weeks-long trip to the lunar surface, it will make Israel the fourth country ever to pull off a moon landing.



    I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day.

    Happy Caturday Q sters,
    We've made it to the weekend. I'm back to working this Caturday. Weather should be warmer, so getting rid of the ice will be a priority, before the next system shows up Psunday night into next week.
    Leafs & Habs tonight. Should be a good one.
