Cynthia Mulligan:, So you’ve actually met Donald Trump. Doug Ford:, Yes, with Rob when he opened the Trump tower in Toronto. CM:, Are you still a supporter of Donald Trump? DF:, Absolutely. I wouldn’t waver. The GOP is wavering, I wouldn’t waver. Interview: Doug Ford on Donald Trump Doug Ford is the Progressive Conservative Premier of Ontario, Canada’s largest province. Less than one year into office, his net favourablity index is -53% (The woman he replaced was at -35%) and his party is polling at 22%. Ezra Levant says he has a "great working relationship with Doug Ford" and compared Ford favourably to Trump Ezra Levant - head of “Rebel Media”, Canada’s answer to Infonews, formerly of Sun TV, Canada’s failed attempt at Fox News. Trump card: Kenney sees advantage to new member’s history with U.S. president On Friday, Kenney celebrated his party’s big victories in two byelections the day before, which saw Devin Dreeshen elected in Innisfail-Sylvan Lake with 80 per cent of the vote and Laila Goodridge, who took two-thirds of the vote in Fort McMurray-Conklin. He also defended Dreeshen for his extensive work as a volunteer on Trump’s successful 2016 campaign, despite Kenney’s own views on Trump. “I’m not a fan but I recognize he’s the elected president of our largest trading partner and we have to deal with that administration,” the UCP leader told reporters at the Blackfoot Diner parking lot. [Jason Kenney is the newly elected United Conservative Premiere of Alberta, Canada’s oil rich province - to be fair, he doesn’t much like Trump personally] Any Canadian who doesn’t think that Canadian conservatives admire Donald Trump is a fool.
Quite a few amazing things! The Mackinac Bridge and Mackinac Island The island is a delightful tourist trap with no cars, horses, candy, and knick-knacks galore. Rent a bike and ride around the island - it’s only 7 miles and the views are out of this world. The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn. Famous vehicles from the founder of the Detroit Auto Industry, including the bus Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on. The Porcupine Mountains. My summer trip was supposed to include my first visit here, but COVID knocked out those plans. I’ll go before I’m finished here, for sure. The National Cherry Festival in Traverse City. Also cancelled this year thanks to COVID but I’ve been many times. Michigan cherries are the best (sorry Washington, but they are). The RED WINGS! You gotta go. They’re not great right now (well, they’re not even playing right now) but the crowd is ROCKING and the energy is electric. The new Little Caesar’s Arena is gorgeous. The Sleeping Bear Dunes. No description needed. Look at that picture! I could go on and on and on. But these are some of my favorite spots here in the land of pleasant peninsulas. Lakes galore, tons of great hiking, tons of great biking, tons of great colleges, tons of great people, and tons of reasons to visit. Come check it out!
We lived in Fort Myers for 3 years. If you have kids, check out the IMAG science center, Lakes Park, of Fort Myers Beach (we like Bowditch Beach specifically) For adults, the Edison and Ford estates are a cool piece of history, or if you’re into nature, visit Manatee Park in April / May to see the Manatees coming inland to breed. Sanibel Island is a great place to find clear water, unique restaurants, live music on weekends, and will cost much more than a visit to Fort Myers beach.
Two words for the majestic TATA Tiago, ,IT’S FANTASTIC,! I have been owning TATA Tiago for more than a yeae now and I am confident enough to give it a “Thumbs Up”., ,The car was brought in May 2019 and it has run superbly since last 12 months. My Car till Now: Model, - TATA Tiago Petrol - XZ+ - Cherry Red Colour Brought in ,- May 2019 Kilometers Driven, - 10000+ KM Average, - 14–16 KMPL in City & 20–22 KMPL on Highway Parts Changed, - Nothing Service done ,- 2 FIRST LET ME TELL YOU WHY I CHOSE TATA TIAGO (You can SKIP THIS SECTION & scroll below to know “WHY TIAGO” :P) Like everyone, I too spent months researching and reading about various cars, their specs, reviews etc. Trust me, when I started my research TATA cars were out of my equation. I honestly had no clue about TATA’s recent resurgence in the car segment. My picks were Ford Figo or Hyundai Grand i10. I definitely didn’t want to buy a Maruti car because of safety issues. The Ford Figo is excellent without a doubt and Hyundai cars have been known for their smooth riding experience. Let me tell you guys, saving some bucks for a Maruti car while keeping in line your safety is never a wise choice. I was slowly inclining towards Ford Figo as my final choice and that is when I consulted a friend who owns a Figo Diesel. His reviews about his car was very good but he suggested me some downsides of Ford’s petrol cars. He instead pushed me towards Tiago. I was like, what’s this car? Then after listening to my friend and getting to see my favourite football star (Messi) advertising for it, I was really amazed. Within just 1 month of researching and analysis, I decided to go for Tiago and brought a ,Cherry Red Coloured TATA Tiago XZ+ Version (Petrol Car),. Please note, the XZ+ Version is a bit costly when compared to the other high model XZ. I chose XZ+ inspite of the cost because I loved the Harman Audio Interiors and the improved Tyre sizes, which was key to me for off-roading. MY EXPERIENCE OF DRIVING TATA TIAGO I will mention few kick ass things about TATA Tiago: First and foremost - The ,delivery experience, at TATA Showroom. The delivery process was seamless and they gave me my car just like a gift. They did an unveiling ceremony, cake cutting and all those glittering stuffs. It made me really happy! :) Super Light Steering, with Awesome Feedback - It feels so light to drive this machine. The steering feedback is awesome. Powerful ,City Mode, which helps you drive with ease Very ,spacious, both in front and back 8 speakers, with Harman Audio Technology that enables a wow audio experience Eco mode for long drives to give you that ,extra mileage Inbuilt ,parking sensors, to help park efficiently The ,shockers are insane,. Driving on Indian roads, I hardly feel the bumps. The shockers absorb almost every effect of bad roads and the people sitting will hardly feel anything. Drive Experience I love to drive this car. It has a peppy engine which does what you want. You want to twist and turn fast to overtake others? You will do it with ease. The steering feedback is fabulous. I have seen many people complaining about the pick up in 2nd and 3rd gear. I agree to an extent but it depends on how you drive. If you drive in city mode and accelerate well in your first and second gears, the response from 3rd gear onwards is excellent. There is one more thing that I like about Tiago when compared to Swift, Baleno, Grandi10 etc. It is the vibration when you are above 100 KMPH. The car runs like a horse while your speed is about 100–120 KMPH and there are no vibrations whatsoever. I have driven Swift, Baleno and even Grand i10, their response at these speeds are pretty awful. I have also taken this car for some off-roading experience in Shivpuri (Rishikesh), Dam Dama Lake (Gurgaon), Terrain roads of Almora and many others. This machine is a beast of a hatchback! Remember: ,Drive in city mode to experience the real TATA Tiago. Mileage On highways, by driving in Eco Mode, I easily get about 20–22 KMPL. In city roads, the car gives about 14–16 KMPL. Although in super high traffic places like Gurgaon, my mileage drops to about 13–14 KMPL. This is a case only if you drive in super high traffic routes. Mileage without AC: In city, if you drive without AC, then your mileage just slightly increases by 1–3 KMPL. But since I live in Gurgaon (which is hot to the core), I dare not do that. If you have had driven your car without AC and tested mileage, do leave your experience in the comments. However on Highways, I would advice not to drive with windows open because of wind blast issue. The mileage and the drive experience will get affected. But still, I tried once and got 24 KMPL mileage without AC. Build Quality Man oh Man.. This car is a Hulk Hogan. There are few instances where I accidentally bumped the car on corner stones and parking walls. I was expecting a heart breaking dent but the dents were almost negligible. One day due to heavy traffic, my fender hit the corner of a tractor and I was freaked. I thought the car would have been crushed from the side because it hit a damn tractor. But see the result below: The damage was way below the expected level. This shows how strong the resistance capacity of the car is. Powerful AC The AC in this car is quite impressive. There is no rear AC like a Grand i10 but the ACs are powerful enough to cool the entire cabin, within minutes. I am sure those who have been in a Tiago would accept this. Interiors Personally, I love the interiors. It’s kind of new age design to me. Steering has a lot of control options which makes it look cool. Chrome finish on AC vents and a glossy infotainment system makes the entire interior look sexy. Have a look yourselves: Last but not the least, Incredible Audio from Harman Saved this for last. The most amazing thing about Tiago is the Audio system from Harman. The ConnectNext Infotainment system is one hell of a thing. There are 8 speakers, I repeat 8 Speakers, which gives a fabulous sound experience. You can adjust Bass, Treble etc. and tune up the sound. Even the outsiders will experience the boss type music! If you are a person looking to buy a hatchback but don’t have any particular in mind, Just take a test drive of TATA Tiago and you will enjoy it wholly. PS - I am no marketer or anyone writing behalf of a car trading company. I just love my Tiago and wanted to spread the word about this magnificent machine. #ITSFANTASTICO Edit 2: HOW TO OPTIMIZE ENGINE PERFORMANCE AND SOLVE VIBRATING ENGINE NOISE? I have been noticing a number of people talking about loud noise while you start the vehicle and also about performance. Let me give you an important tip to solve these. Here you go: Once you start the car for the first time (in a day), there is no doubt you will hear some vibrating noise. I was also worried about this and consulted a well known mechanic (who is a friend of mine). He said that this has been an ,case, with lot of TATA cars. Once again I repeat, it’s a CASE, not an issue. He also mentioned that Revotorq or Revotron engines will generate these noise initially. He told that it is because of High RPM level of the car once you start. You may have noticed in your Tiago that the RPM level almost touches 2 once you start. You need to wait for a couple of minutes until it drops down below 1. During this process, the engine gets ready for its actual performance and then you will not hear the noise for the entire day. By doing this, not only do you s,olve the noise problem, but also ,optimize your engine for best performance, and long life. I have been doing this since the day I got to know. Why don’t you guys try and let me know the change in the comments below? If any of you have already tried this and experienced what I said, I would be happy to hear from you too. Thanks Note: My first Quora Answer with 100+ Upvotes. Glad that people liked this answer.

Question from ,Charles Tiranno,—Thanks Charles! ^ Arches National Park, Utah — TripAdvisor ~~~~ Q. When you own a Tesla car, are you able to go on a cross country trip as easily as a gas car, retaining the same level of flexibility to go where you want, when you want? For example, if I want to see a bunch of national parks. A. For me: Yes, no problem so far. I have done more than 20,000 miles of road trips in my Tesla. It is much nicer road tripping in the Tesla than in my Subaru or my Ford Truck. My Tesla is a Long Range model—it would be harder in a Standard Range model. There are Superchargers where I want them in all areas of the 14 states where I usually travel: CO, TX, IN, UT, NM, NV, LA, MS, NE, KS, IA, MO, IL, AZ. DETAILS It depends on where you are going and if you absolutely want a supercharger in every location. That said—I have traveled to many National Parks, State Parks, and remote sites of geological interest in my Tesla with no inconvenience. I have used Superchargers for every single trip—never needing a slower charging option. I note that one answer here from Quora friend ,Dean Pannell ,says there are no Superchargers serving Big Bend National Park in Texas. I agree—that one is tough—a great example—very difficult, very risky. Here is a link to a site that reviews a trip to Big Bend in a Model 3: “Finally I saw the Supercharger in the distance. I glided in with 0%, getting 347 mi out of a battery rated for 310mi.” Tesla Model 3 Maiden Voyage - Big Bend National Park TX - Maiden Voyage Comment from ,Jim Murphy,: “Lots of places, including Big Bend in Texas, are easy to get to. But hard to get back from on the same day. There are plenty of places to plug into a NEMA 14–50 outlet and get a full charge overnight. Plugshare map and user reviews show resorts where you can rent a room and also, if it's not too crowded, park at an associated RV spot to plug in for no extra charge.” Before you leave for some exotic location…maybe spend some time on the site above, or one like it—it will give detailed answers to your questions about visiting the sights. MORE DETAILS I am a rock hound and amateur geologist/mineralogist/paleontologist. I have made many expeditions far from the beaten path in my Tesla. Lots of remote desert areas. There are certainly still some locations that would be harder to visit, where I would have to charge at an RV park. But all locations I have wanted to visit have been near a Supercharger. Here are some of the places I found easy to visit in my Tesla: Arches National Park, Utah (Supercharger in Moab) Garden of the Gods, Colorado Lake Travis, Texas Cataract Falls State Recreation Area, Indiana Caballo Lake State Park, New Mexico Colorado National Monument, Colorado New Mexico Spaceport, New Mexico Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Texas John C. Stennis Space Center, Mississippi Very Large Array, Socorro, New Mexico Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado Capulin Volcano National Monument, New Mexico Crestone Hot Springs, Colorado Elephant Butte Lake State Park, New Mexico (Supercharger in Truth or Consequences) San Antonio River Walk & The Alamo, Texas John Wesley Powell River History Museum & Green River State Park, Utah (There is a Supercharger right there) Rockhound State Park, Deming, New Mexico o
I am a Chicago native and visit Toronto every year. Chicago and Toronto are very similar world class cities: Same populations; located on inland freshwater Great Lakes (not saltwater coastal oceans); located in the same climate zone; large percentage of foreign born inhabitants; diversified economy; polite and easy going. There are some significant differences: TORONTO is the dominant commercial city of Canada (in this respect it is more like New York); the mayor is elected by a much larger area that includes distant suburbs (thus election of the conservative Mayor Ford). Construction and development is much less regulated. Toronto grew very quickly after the separatist movement in Quebec; many large businesses relocated to Toronto in the 70’s and 80’s. CHICAGO’s advantage: it burned to the ground in 1871, and reinvented itself. Chicago grew very quickly in the late 1800′s and early 1900′s. It was rebuilt under the Burnham Master Plan of 1909, which prohibits construction on the lakefront (most of which is public parks and beaches), mandates massive boulevards connecting the neighborhoods, set up unified zoning of building massing density and use, and mandated large public parks in all neighborhoods. The planning is very centralized, and focuses roads, public transit, and rails to the City Center. The planning is highly regulated; all building permits near the lake must go through an extensive aesthetic review by the planning commission. The result is a strikingly beautiful city and skyline. The mayor is also very powerful (and usually left leaning), with voters only from Chicago proper. As a Chicagoan, Toronto feels like a hodgepodge - condo high rises right on Lake Ontario, a massive highway cutting through downtown, and unplanned neighborhoods - a single family home next to a high rise on one side with a 5 story building on the other. A Torontonian might look at Chicago as a city with great disparities in income (like all of the U.S.). I love flying into Toronto’s Billy Bishop, a downtown island airport with high rise views across the water. Chicago had Meigs Field, a downtown island airport that was demolished because our previous Mayor (Richard Daley Jr.) did not want the governor to be able to fly to downtown from the state capitol. The runways were demolished and re-sodded within a day so that the scene would not be nationally televised during a home Bears game (the island is across from Soldier Field). Meigs was redeveloped as an outdoor music venue and prairie+wetlands preserve, which follows the Burnham Master Plan.

Do you love birds? Do you think carrying big binoculars and long lenses is a fun way to spend your vacation ? If yes, welcome to Khar us national Park, 2nd largest fresh water lake in Mongolia. Its located in one of the most western parts of Mongolia, Khovd province. 1500km from capital Ulaanabatar. Because the lake is not deep and has a lot of marshes, its has designation of RAMSAR (wetland of international significance). Some of the birds include: Black-throated Divers, Arctic Loon, Red-crested Pochard, Swan Goose, Relict Gull, White-headed Duck, Pallas’s Fish Eagle, Dalmatian Pelican, Great Cormorant, Great Sand Plover and Great Egrets. There is also some Przewalski horses in the area. If this is not impressive, nearby mountain has snow leopard, argali (check my article on argali: ,Anand Nyamdavaa's answer to What are some things to do while visiting Mongolia that a tourist might not know about?, )and ibex. The funny thing is I learned that this lake is famous place for bird watching from this guy I met this guy while driving to Khovd province. This German guy stopped us and asked for directions. He was driving a Ford minivan alone, with a dog as a companion. He was driving all the way from Germany to watch birds here. ..
US (Indiana-California-Indiana), 8000 Miles in 17 days. IN-IL-IA-NE-CO-NM-UT-AZ-NV-CA-OR-WA-ID-MT-WY-SD-MN-WI-IL-IN. My parents were visiting me so I decided to take them on a road trip so here how it started, Our ride was ready and all packed, obviously was a rental( Ford Edge), below pic was taken in Mount Evans , Colorado. Our first destination was Colorado via Iowa and Nebraska, I felt so happy after reaching Colorado because I was planning to visit this state couple of times but I failed. Finally was at Colorado , first destination was Mount Evans, it was mind blowing and let me tell you that it’s the highest paved road in North America at 14,130 feet above sea level, the drive was amazing. beautiful animals on the way up. we reached Denver city, fueled up, next destination was Pikes peak mountain the summit was at 14,115 feet, scenic drive and beautiful. next on the list was Royal Gorge bridge, next day we started driving to Utah, where we passed through beautiful roads and passes, below pic was taken at Independence pass(12,095 feet), After we entered Utah, we visited Arches National Park, then we were back to Colorado to visit Mesa Verde National Park After visiting Mesa Verde started driving towards Silverton (CO) to reach one of my fav destination called Million Dollar Highway but I was disappointed as the roads were closed due to forest fires, has to settle down in Durango(CO). next day we started driving towards New Mexico to reach Shiprock, nothing so exciting about it. but the drive and the scenic roads along the way were amazing I entered Arizona but drove again to Utah to visit one of the beautiful road in Utah(according to me) - ,Oljato-Monument Valley Back to Arizona to visit Horse shoe bend, we visited Grand Canyon,It was beautiful. Next on the list was Nevada, we stopped at Hoover dam,before that we visited a beautiful lake in Boulder city-Mead Lake, OMG it was 42* C, crazy hot. Finally we were at Las Vegas, the next day we headed towards Death Valley National Park, After driving without Mobile service(no network) for hours, we reached California(LA). After a good nap we woke up to see our first beach in this road trip - Malibu Beach. We started to drive along CA1 to reach Big Sur, sadly the road was closed due to land slide, so we took an alternate route to reach SFO before that we made a stop at Yosemite National Park, we started driving towards SFO, we reached SFO, drove on this beautiful bridge - Golden gate Bridge somewhere after exiting SFO, next on the list was Lassen Volcanic National Park, guess what the road to the top of the hill was closed due to the snow that fell last night, I was like it’s summer and it snowed(June 17th 2018), We entered Oregon, such a beauty, we visited Crater Lake( Deepest Lake in North America), then we visited Toketee Falls, Thor’s Hammer in Oregon, last stop in Oregon was Multnomah Falls, then we reached Washington and visited Palouse falls, we started driving towards Idaho and reached Montana , visited Ewam and Garden of One thousand Buddhas, next on the list was Yellow Stone National Park - Wyoming, we headed towards Beartooth highway(CO),these roads are opened for only couple of months, trust me they were beautiful, beautiful roads along the way, final stop on this trip was Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, this was one of the longest drive so far and it was fantastic( I was the only one who was driving). All the pictures posted above were taken by me. Edit 1 - sorry for posting too many pictures, ,I always believe pictures explain more than words. Note -I have not mentioned about stay - Hotels/Motels.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It’s located in the Appalachian Rainforest, and climates there include humid subtropical at the base of the mountains, subtropical highland in most of the park and hemiboreal at the highest summits. The hemiboreal summits also have an endangered biome, the Southern Appalachian Spruce-Fir Forest. On top of all that, it’s a national dark-sky site, so you could see Uranus with your naked eye; you’d normally need binoculars to see Uranus! Window Cliffs State Natural Area. These mystical natural arches are located in a canyon in southern Putnam County, south-southwest of Cookeville and south-southeast of Baxter. The parking is at the current dead end of Old Cane Creek Road, which can be accessed via Old Mill Road or Ball Hill Road off of Cookeville Boatdock Road. Cookeville Boatdock Road connects to S.R. 135 for those of you getting off at I-40 Exit 286 and Baxter Road for those of you getting off at I-40 Exit 280. Memphis area “must-sees”: Downtown Memphis Mud Island Memphis Botanic Garden Overton Park Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid Memphis City Hall. Like, seriously, there are some beautiful plants there! Cossitt Library. I know this seems kind of random, but ,there are two HUGE Southern Live Oaks there!, That’s a type of semi-evergreen tree that won’t thrive anywhere in Tennessee except Memphis. Clarksville area “must-sees”: Sorry. I couldn’t think of anything for this, even though it’s a major city. It’s just kind of a trashy city in my opinion, although of course I respect those who disagree. Nashville/Murfreesboro area “must-sees”: Downtown Nashville Murfreesboro Cedars of Lebanon State Park. It has a very rare and unique desert-like ecosystem known as Cedar Glades, Limestone Glades or Calcereous Glades, in addition to the evergreen Virginian Juniper forests that lend the park its name. Cool Springs, located on the Franklin/Brentwood border Natchez Trace Parkway Gaylord Opryland Resort atriums. I highly recommend saving this for when the pandemic calms, but it’s definitely worth seeing during peacetime. Opry Mills Mall. Again, I strongly recommend delaying this for a better time, but the freshwater aquarium in Bass Pro Shops and the mini-train in one of the halls are especially cool. Chattanooga area “must-sees”: Tennessee Aquarium. It’s the second-largest aquarium in the U.S.A., behind only the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta! Both the saltwater and freshwater exhibits are very diverse. Rock City. It’s on Lookout Mountain, which would make this list for me even on its own. Ruby Falls Racoon Mountain Signal Mountain Sequatchie Valley. This is a really straight, long and deep mountain valley that’s flat at the bottom and a few miles wide! Jasper, Whitwell, Dunlap and Pikeville are located in this valley. At the north end of the valley is also Grassy Cove, the largest sinkhole in North America, which is located between Crossville and Spring City. Knoxville area “must-sees”: UT Botanical Gardens. The plants here have remarkable variety that you probably won’t see anywhere else in the state! Oak Ridge Windrock Park. It’s a good place to ride your ATV in the Cumberland Mountains! Trails range from well-maintained gravel roads of low slope to steep, rocky hill climbs. Ozone Falls State Natural Area Major, rivers in Tennessee,: Mississippi River Cumberland River Tennessee River Clinch River Duck River Hatchie River French Broad River Elk River Hiwassee River Caney Fork River Major lakes in Tennessee: Center Hill Lake - ,third deepest lake in the state Cherokee Lake - ,tied for fourth deepest lake in the state Chickamauga Lake Dale Hollow Lake Douglas Lake J.
