xx Access to Profile from Home page?

August 13, 2015, 15:31:26 by Lumber
Colour me blind, but I've been a member for 9 years, and I still can't figure out if there is a way to go directly to my profile from the Home page.

From the master list of Topics/Threads, sure; that's easy. But from the home page? Does it exist?

xx *Warning - slightly misleading title* Plane crashes at 14 Wing Greenwood

Plane crashes at 14 Wing Greenwood

A Lockheed CP-140 Aurora was damaged Thursday morning at 14 Wing Greenwood airbase during an attempted takeoff.

“The plane aborted takeoff, we’re not too sure why, and slid off the runway. It’s under investigation,” said Sgt. Pete Nicholson, spokesperson for the airbase.

The incident occurred at approximately 10:20 a.m. Thursday.

All 17 people on board were unharmed and the extent of the damage to the plane is also under investigation, said Nicholson.

The flight was a “normal flight” as part of their daily operations at the base.

The Aurora is a plane commonly used by the Royal Canadian Air Force for maritime patrol.

As there will be an investigation, etc, anyone who is privy to information should remember their Ps and Qs.

xx US Military Family Loses Everything In U-Haul Robbery

August 21, 2015, 00:33:55 by MAJONES
I'm not sure if this is the correct place for this, so I'll offer apologies if I have erred.

Full story at link below.

The family was enroute to Alaska due to a posting.  From the sounds of it they literally had everything they owned in a UHaul that was stolen from the parking lot of the hotel where the were staying.

xx Split from: ABC Veteran clowns

August 20, 2015, 17:29:21 by SteadyPolaris

So it would be an offence to walk into a polling station with any campaign button on your person.
What about a sign explaining how you were robocalled in the last election and sent to the wrong polling station and the police and Elections Canada basically covered it up and refused to investigate? Not doing so is condoning the largest election fraud in Canadian history. There is no chain of command to go to for relief making direct action the moral choice.

xx DUNNE: Selecting MacKay as NATO head would reward Canada’s heavy lifting

August 20, 2015, 11:47:43 by Dimsum
From the Chronicle-Herald Opinion:

Quote
It’s time for a change in Canada’s role in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Recognition for our contributions and participation over the past 66 years is overdue. We have been punching above our weight pretty much since the beginning, when Prime Minister Louis St-Laurent first proposed a “single mutual defence system.”

http://thechronicleherald.ca/opinion/1306003-dunne-selecting-mackay-as-nato-head-would-reward-canada%E2%80%99s-heavy-lifting

As much as I would like to see a Canadian head of NATO, I highly doubt that would happen given our reduced contribution and the objections of the European members.  Notably, the US hasn't provided a NATO Secretary General either.
