Re: “Virginia's coal-mining tombs

We only have one real, doctoral level, national research University and it is a very good one.

Pittsburgh didn't really reinvent itself. It has been losing population for years. Those tall buildings you are looking at have people working in them for a fraction of what the mills, illogically dislodged by globalist policies seeking to turn American into just another 3rd. world country, with cheap labor people battling it out for jobs at Walmart and selling each other pizzas, with a 1% super wealthy "elite" treating everyone else as serfs of various types. It was much more prosperous before all those good jobs were sent to China.

Re: “Virginia's coal-mining tombs

Don't usually post comments but the headline is wrong and West Virginia has more than one university.

Re: “The rise of the side hustle

Thanks to Pique Newsmagazine for printing this article on side hustles! It was fun to write and showcases the incredible trailblazing entrepreneurs in our Sea to Sky Corridor.

Re: “Free will astrology for the week of May 24

I've spent most of the morning exploring Pique Newsmagazine and now I am enthralled with this Horoscope feature. I have often wanted to find a site with interesting posts in this field of interest to No avail. But I Do Like This one and will share it on my page to see if anyone finds it useful. I am Virgo but I doubt that I will be "boosting my reputation" as I am a stay-at-home widow and I keep a Very Low Profile!!

Re: “Brainy Whistler

Thanks for the stimulating article Pique Newsmagazine, I'll have to explore it further. I recall The Walrus and will look into That; and I am familiar with Kickstarter, both mentioned herein. Even though I was born & raised in Vancouver (1945) and moved to the Cariboo 30 years ago, I still call the Lower Mainland my "home town". I am very interested in developments and repeatedly watch Knowledge Network's "Canada Over the Edge" episodes to quench my thirst for information and the utterly magnificent scenery. I am "by no means" an "intellectual" as the other commentor claims but I love Learning about a myriad of topics.

Re: “First Nations men's group reclaims traditional territory

Another great article so thanx Pique Newsmagazine! I am fascinated by Native cultures, their Beautiful art... beadwork, totem carving, art prints, et al; their Dedication to preserving their lands, traditions, languages; their Loyalty to each other both in their own communities and others; their Generosity in sharing all of this with all of "us".

Re: “Yoga Inc.

On the contrary- maybe it is moving us closer. Our small pop up boutique festival (max 250 people) the Awaken Festival includes Yoga + Music + Dance + Workshops and with some the profits going to a homeless project it is one not to missed #awakenfestival

Re: “Steep Measures

Jim had a great voice. Don was the captain of the CFMI ski team in which I was part of the race team. I want to mention my sister June Brandon Southwell won the first race ever and I thought it was Butch White that also won the first race. They won a trip to Europe with Air Canada. My sister was the best retired racer in the valley at the time.

Re: “Steep Measures

I'm pretty sure it was Jim Conrad and not CFMI's DJ Donny Andrews that did the voice-over on that radio commercial.
You can hear his voice here:

Re: “Mind Maze

What an informative and encouraging article. Good to know there are such resources available for young people in Whistler facing mental health issues. Kudos to those who provide the support in such a caring and sensitive way!

Re: “Providing a pathway

We are a group of 20 mostly Canadians who are over here in South Korea being Weasel Workers along side the Koreans and some Russians. We are doing course prep with mixed Korean/Canadian crews doing all the stuff we normally do at ski races, shovelling,slipping, installing safety. Most of us are BCers with a couple of Ontarians thrown in. The Koreans are lovely people and the food is wonderful if you like Kimchi and rice and other assorted dishes. It is a wonderful experience to be here and we even got to travel around the country a bit. First gold medal to Mac Marcoux in the downhill. How would you like to ski a downhill blind.Super G tomorrow. More later Colin

Re: “Big Island, big flavour

Thanks Dan and Kerilee. A fun read and no doubt you had a fabulous time. I could see the waterfalls, feel the steam, taste the loco and smell the coffee. Time to go back to my favourite isle where the ancient Hawaiians still roam

Re: “Golden Dreams

Great article but what about the Whistler residents who happen not to be part of the Canada Olympic team (and representing their birth country) but who nonetheless call Whistler their home (and their training ground). Only a couple of weeks ago, a Pique article made reference to them and now nothing? Whistler is an international place and should be recognized even in its own representatives, irrespective of which country they hail from...

Re: “The long, soft and creatively optimistic path of Amory Lovins

Once again, another 'somewhere-else and in-the-future' energy and eco-story without a single mention of the fact the BC is ALREADY 95% powered by clean, renewable hydro-electricity. Has been (reliably and efficiently) for about 100 years. Hydro is 'solar' energy essentially, because the sun still drives the hydrologic cycle that dumps loads of precipitation on our glorious mountains, but we just happen to call it 'hydro' in these parts. Speaking of 'local', don't we believe that 'local' solutions might just work better than southern USA solutions? After all, in coastal BC it's either cloudy, windless or dark for about 5 months of the year. But it sure does rain and snow! Not a very good solar and wind resource for sure.

Re: “Can human judgment handle avalanches?

The avalanche at Stevens Pass (see Snowfall: The Avalanche at Tunnel Creek, NYT 2012) Is really worth a read. A group of expert skiers where nobody wanted to speak up and be the buzzkill. Here is a link:…

Re: “Can human judgment handle avalanches?

Excellent piece of writing on the subject, especially the bit about the rabbit hole of years spent looking at snow crystals assuming it will reveal the solution!
Good work. I do disagree with the suggestion to avoid examining accidents. Accidents are a gold mine of unambiguous feedback to actions, in a domain nearly absent of feedbacks and without unambiguous feedbacks acquisition of skill is often deceptive. Accurately (truthfully, that is) analyzing accidents informs the positive behaviours he suggests, which I do agree with.
