Jasper Tour [ Columbia Icefield Glacier Adventure]

Recently I was in a tour around Jasper National Park with my friends. On our way to Jasper we have visited Columbia Icefield Glacier centre. It was an unique experience in my life. Here I like to share my feelings with you guys !!.

The ice field centre operates from May 1 to October 15.

Checklist:
Ticket: $50/Adult.
Jacket
Winter boot.
Camera.

Bus departs every 15 minutes from Icefield Centre. Regular Brewster bus will take you to Brewster Ice Explorers bus station in about 10 min.



Massive Brewster Ice Explorers, specially designed for glacial travel, will take you on a remarkable excursion onto the surface of the Athabasca Glacier. BTW, Ice Explorers bus travel at maximum speed of 12 miles/ hour :P.


While traveling on the ICE Explorer the sharp way down on icy roads might scare some of you :). You will enjoy a unique prehistoric landscape on your way towards the glacier.


Journey is about 80 minute and lead by an experienced driver-guide. It will take you very close to the glacier. Y…

URGENT APPEAL
LET US MAKE A DIFFERENCE; LET US SAVE A LIFE!!!

One of my best friend's younger brother, Mohammad Younus, a brilliant first year student from Notredam Collage, Dhaka, Bangladesh is suffering from Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS); a syndrome that is RARELY found in 1 out of every 100,000 people. Mohammad is currently admitted into the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Islami Bank Central Hospital, Dhaka Bangladesh. Each day the hospital fees and medical expenses would cost his family around 25K BDT. The total treatment is estimated to be somewhere around 700K ~ 800K BDT (i.e. equivalent to US$ 10,000). His family is unable to support the cost of this treatment due to poor financial condition.

Your generous help can SAVE A LIFE! It is not a huge amount to put together. If we can come forward to help him—God willing—we can SAVE his life. I eagerly request all of you, who have the ability, to come forward and DONATE generously. If you…

Seven Secrets of Highly Successful Research Student

Seminar Notes written by
Dina Said (Phd Student, Database Lab at University of Calgary)

1) Care & maintenance of Supervisor:
Know yourself and your supervisor. People are either do'ers or thinkers. If your supervisor is a thinker, always ask them multi-choice questions. Do u think (a) or (b) is better? They will probably tell you and there are also (c) and (d) and (e). Limit them always to tell you one direction rather than thinking and thinking and thinking without an action.
On the other hand, if you supervisor is a do'er and they always tell you do stuff because they think it is just good to try them out. Try to always ask how this is aligned with your thesis question.

Also, it is good to prepare an agenda for meeting with your supervisor, be clear on what to ask, at the end of the meeting tell them what you are going to do next, clearly specify your problems, and have meetings on a regular/frequent basis..Additionally, it is always good to send emails before and afte…

Persian Music - Homayoon - Nemitonam English lyrics

I love this song. I have requested one of my Persian friend to translate it for me and she did really nice job.. I am sure you will love it..
"

"The person who was the only person I had,
was the only refuge of my lonely heart,
Left me alone and went from my side
I am restless form the pain of her separation

I thought she stays with me
sings love song for me
I thought she understand my words
I didn’t know she’s unkind

Though gone, but still
I am full of her love
Her thought is always with me
Wherever I go, she is in front of my eyes, in front of my eyes
I want to stand out
find a way to reduce my pain of her separation
But it is not possible, There is no way
I cannot bear
I cannot bear

The person who was the only person I had,
was the only refuge of my lonely heart,
Left me alone and went from my side
I am restless form the pain of her separation

I thought she stays with me
sings love song for me
I thought she understand my words
I didn’t know she’s unkind

Though gone, but still
I …

I like this song very much...
