  4. By Cat DiStasio Snow sports are wildly popular around the globe -- even in regions with no winter to speak of. No matter, because architects and engineers have joined forces to create ski and snowboard slopes in some of the most unlikely places. Whether indoors or out, artificial snow or pure natural pow-pow, these buildings with built-in slopes will blow your snow-loving mind. From the longest indoor ski slope on the planet to an eco-friendly year-round snow sports resort, this roundup has something for everyone. If you can't hold your breath 'til the next bluebird day rolls around, opt for one of these spots where it's primo shredding season with no white-out in the forecast. Rest of the pics here: http://www.engadget.com/2016/01/21/6-buildings-that-you-can-sled-ski-and-snowboard-on/#gallery=358601&slide=3774117
  5. STANFORD PROPERTIES GROUP New multi-tenant office building - 52,764 square feet Pie IX Blvd, between Majeau and Larin, This project is replacing the old Mike's Restaurant on Pie IX. Sorry no Pics!!
  6. Old Damascus is quite unique, it is enclosed by very high walls and it can only be accessed by very few doors ( i believe 7 of them). Streets are never wider than the width of two cars, and most of them are unmapped and wide enough for one person to pass. Old Damascus is composed of a good sized Christian Minority, and you can find packed Churches on Sundays and other Holidays. Old Damascus is the heart of the oldest still inhabited city in the world, Damascus goes back to over 4000 years before Christ. So I'm not going to spoil any surprises, check the pics and some commentaries... i tried to be as concise as possible, but if you do have questions, just ask. If you haven't checked the first part: Going to Old Damascus There's no detached houses in Damascus, its all 3-4-5 stories with no elevator. Thats why you don't see many fat Syrians :-) The almighty Minister of Finance... aka Mafia. My host in his '78 Mercedes annoyed by my too many pics... he hasn't seen nothing yet. The usual 3 lanes become 6 lanes traffic in Syria. More fountains... Notice the fruits on the left, that guy makes amazing fresh pressed juice... I was always having one too... 25sp or 50 cents. That's the most important commercial street in Damascus, the mazout deliverer and his horse perfectly blend. The almighty Commercial Bank of Syria... the biggest fiasco I've ever witnessed in my life... it takes maybe 5 or 6 signatures to cash in a regular cheque (45 minutes)... to bad I couldn't take any pics inside. A roundabout, very common. Another common sight... ok maybe not, a fellah wit his lamb :-) A vestige of old railroad tracks. Thats a movie theatre... look at those sexy women. BTW, going to the movies in Syria is seen as a bad thing by the masses. A viaduc. Thats the old central station. Good luck in getting in. Can't remember what was that building. Thats the telegraph and communication central... if you want a phone line, you go there. (the waiting list for a phone line was so long that we got it nearly 10 years after we already moved to Canada) Market (Souq) al-Hamidiyya and Roman ruins So we wanted to visit Al Hamidiyya, unique I confess, and encolsed in Old Damascus. These are the walls of Old Damascus. Thats the new part of the markt... not intresting. That guy on the left doesn't seem to like being taken in a picture :-) Here we are... it is encolsed by roof. This is the prime spot of the Sook (which spans on many many blocks). Secondary streets where the sook spans.
  7. I had rented a Canon L 100-400mm for the weekend,... let me tell you that it is an incredible but also very difficult to manipulate due to sheer weight and shaking issues even with the IS. I took about 500 to 600 pics up there at the Tour de Montréal (Olympics stadium inclined tower). Once i came back home, i noticed many pics were unasble because they were too blurry... (camera shake). Plus, the images aren't incredibly sharp and thats not because of the lense, but I believe because of atmosphere heat and sheer distance ( light diffraction?) plus the fact that i am behind a greenish glass. Anyhow, I managed to capture some incredible angles... I was very surprised with how I saw Montréal from up there. Enjoy! 1. From Parc and Prince Arthur avenue looking south on Parc. (we can see a boat from the port). 2. Up to the tower. 3.To the east with the Biodome and the masses gathering for the closing ceremonies of the Outgames. 4. St-Laurence with the south shore. Larger version 5. closeup 6. some height 6. 7. close up 8. 9. Bateau mouche with the bridges. 10. 11.This scene is so complexe i'll let you figure it out by yourself 12.Old port 13. 14. Tallest back in the days. 18. commie blocks. 19. 20. To the north west, with a plane preparing to land. 21.A view to the east with the port and its activity. More pictures... 22. The incinerators with the huge chimnees will be demolished in the near future i believe. 23.The clusters of Appts far away are in st-Laurent. 24.Chabanel 25. The cluster near the Metropolitan, the twin towers in Laval farther away. 26.What are they building over there that we didn't hear about? 27. Density in the east end... 28. Petrochimical complexes in the east end 29. 30. containers containers containers... 31. unloading... Here's the final part... going down... back on Earth
  8. I'm looking for MORE like this. Particularly around Square Victoria (Hotel W / CDP). These two pics are too small to satisfy my curiosity/nostalgia, but they're all I could find. This stuff is at most 10 years old, I'm surprised how few pictures google images turns up. Before After Palais des Congres construction would also be fine, stuff like this:
  9. http://www.ledevoir.com/societe/actualites-en-societe/410545/des-pics-anti-itinerants-a-montreal Des « pics » anti-itinérants à Montréal Bien que marginal, le phénomène inquiète les groupes communautaires 10 juin 2014 |Mélanie Loisel | Actualités en société Le magasin Archambault situé au coin des rues Sainte-Catherine et Berri a installé un dispositif de deux rangées de pics le long de la vitrine de sa librairie montréalaise. Photo : Pedro Ruiz - Le Devoir Le magasin Archambault situé au coin des rues Sainte-Catherine et Berri a installé un dispositif de deux rangées de pics le long de la vitrine de sa librairie montréalaise. Des photos de « pointes anti-itinérants » soulèvent tout un tollé depuis quelques jours à Londres, mais Montréal n’est pas en reste. Bien que le phénomène soit encore marginal, des groupes communautaires oeuvrant au centre-ville ont confirmé au Devoir qu’au moins un commerce et quelques propriétaires d’immeubles résidentiels ont installé des « pics » sur le bord de leur vitrine ou de leur terrain pour empêcher les sans-abri ou tout autre flâneur indésirable de s’y installer. Depuis quelque temps déjà, et ce, dans la plus grande discrétion, le magasin Archambault situé au coin des rues Sainte-Catherine et Berri a installé un dispositif de « pics » de deux rangéesle long de la vitrine de sa librairie. Il est impossible non seulement pour un sans-abri de s’y allonger, mais aussi pour quiconque de s’y asseoir quelques minutes. Malgré les tentatives du Devoir d’obtenir plus de renseignements, aucun représentant officiel chez Archambault n’a voulu faire de commentaires. À l’intérieur du magasin, lundi après-midi, une employée a par contre laissé tomber : « On s’en doute [du motif de ces installations]. » À quelques pas du parc Émilie-Gamelin, près du métro Berri-UQAM, de nombreux sans-abri et marginaux traînent dans les environs. Une travailleuse de rue, qui a accepté d’accompagner Le Devoir mais qui ne peut être nommée, a été outrée de voir ce dispositif. « C’est le genre de mesure qu’on prend pour éviter que les pigeons s’installent sur les édifices et, là, on fait la même chose pour éviter d’avoir des êtres humains », a-t-elle déploré. Le directeur général du groupe L’Itinéraire, Serge Lareault, est conscient que la présence de sans-abri peut être problématique dans ce coin, mais il prend bien soin de ne pas jeter trop rapidement la pierre aux commerçants. « Depuis cinq ans, on voit toutes sortes de petites mesures qui sont prises pour éviter que les sans-abri puissent dormir devant les commerces ou sur le bord des vitrines. On ne peut pas blâmer les commerçants de vouloir protéger leurs biens, mais en même temps, il faut bien que les gens de la rue puissent dormir quelque part », dit-il. Après avoir vu les photos des pointes installées devant un immeuble luxueux et sous un viaduc à Londres, M. Lareault espère que ce type de mesures, qualifiées « d’indécentes », ne prendra pas d’ampleur à Montréal. Avec la construction d’immeubles résidentiels dans le centre-ville, il craint que des mesures dissuasives soient prises pour faire fuir les sans-abri au lieu de trouver des solutions pour freiner la hausse de l’itinérance. Inadmissible, dit Projet Montréal La conseillère de l’arrondissement Ville-Marie pour Projet Montréal, Valérie Plante, affirme que des questions seront posées pour éviter que ces dispositifs ne « prennent pas d’expansion » dans la métropole. « On va en discuter parce qu’on juge que c’est inadmissible d’utiliser de telles techniques, qui sont dégradantes », indique-t-elle. Lundi à Londres, le maire de la ville, Boris Johnson, a d’ailleurs exigé que les pointes qui ont tant suscité de réactions sur les réseaux sociaux soient immédiatement retirées. Il a écrit sur Twitter qu’elles étaient « laides, contre-productives et stupides ».

  12. Look at these pics..kind of courageous or foolhardy??? Where's the CSST?? Great bygone era photos from the great metropolis of New York City. Just gives me goose bumps looking at these men who are long forgotten but their work still lives on and gives us, skyscraper fans, thrills... Skyscraper Lunch These photos depict scenes of workers who participated in the construction of skyscrapers between 1920 and 1935. As you will see, the safety measures were somewhat peculiar. These pics are from the following medical advice Guru. :applause:
