By: Zak with a special thanks to Mark

If you use an Android or BlackBerry the odds are that you should be happy with your phone’s speed. Your phone’s chip is probably provided by Qualcomm. I use a BlackBerry Q10 and am quite happy with my phone’s speed. I can switch seamlessly between app to app. I’m very pleased to have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 chip in my phone. The chip’s performance is spectacular. Lagging hardy occurs: Only if you run a lot of game applications (20 or more) at once, will it lag.

Let’s get to why zakopinion has chosen Qualcomm as our next stock pick. Qualcomm is priced pretty high at around the $70 range, however there is MONEY to be made off of it. Here are a few reasons as to why YOU should buy Qualcomm.

  1. Qualcomm is planning to sell chips for servers. This is amazing news. There is a lot of potential in this. Today, server chips are usually provided by Intel or AMD. If Qualcomm makes good, fast processers, the profits will be unimaginable. Also, the problem with Intel and AMD is that they make their products very expensive. In fact, around 1/4 to 1/3 of the cost of a server goes to the processor chip. This is very true especially with Intel. If Qualcomm makes a reliable, fast and relatively cheap processor chip, Intel and AMD will lose their buyers and Qualcomm will prosper.
  1. Qualcomm just made a new 4G modem, which is a CPU system. This new modem should be highly successful. This is because of the fact that Samsung and BlackBerry both use Qualcomm products. Samsung and BlackBerry should both be making new phones and tablets (Samsung) very soon, BlackBerry releasing their Classic in December. Both companies are expected to use Qualcomm’s new 4G modem. The way of the tech world these days is: Find the fastest and newest thing out there. With this new modem, Qualcomm is expecting very large profits.
  1. New York City just chose Qualcomm as one of the companies for its new Street Wifi System. This will provide absolutely MASSIVE profits for Qualcomm. In order for the Wifi to work well, endless numbers of servers and ports are needed. Qualcomm will provide all of these. The good news with this is that the government is paying for all this. Most likely, Qualcomm will ask for a high price and almost certainly, the government’s going to pay up. The government doesn’t have another choice because of the contract they signed. Also, it will cost the government a lot to get another provider, so basically, Qualcomm has secured the deal.
  1. Tech stocks are generally stable. This is because there is a huge market and demand for this currently. Many of the people in this generation want the newest and the fastest gadgets. With Qualcomm’s new processors and CPU’s they can make it a reality for the middle class. There are a lot of the middle class, and with Qualcomm’s new hardware, profits should be good. I think that also, the demand of technology itself is enough to keep Qualcomm going. As long as there is demand for this kind of need for development, Qualcomm will rise up to the challenge.

Summary:

To sum it up, Qualcomm should start booming in a couple of months. They certainly are one of the biggest players in the chip market. Having contracts from huge corporations and governments, they’re poised to go up.

America and Soccer, The Controversial Hypocrisy

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

In America, most people prefer to watch football, basketball, baseball and hockey. Everyone should at least follow up with one of these sports. Many Americans don’t like the game soccer, named as football everywhere else in the world except for Canada. The reason why I have a problem with the American soccer teams and league is because they say they dislike the rules of the game and the regulations. Some of the things hate are, that the field is too long, there are certain names to positions of players, players diving, faking penalties, it takes a while for a player to score, after three goals, there are no comebacks, and the list keeps on going.

Well, if you Americans have a problem with the game, then why do you even have a national team, the Major League Soccer, soccer teams in major cities, and why the hell is CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) headquartered in Miami, Florida, U.S.A. In my opinion, it should be headquartered in Costa Rica. I bet those who work there don’t want to do the stuff that they have to do, or Hispanics and Latinos work there, just saying, not trying to be racist.

Honestly, this makes no sense at all, and I should continue ranting about this. Your team is horrible, since you cannot win international competitions such as, the FIFA World Cup and Copa America (with CONMEBOL, the South American Confederation). Soccer is slowly getting popular in America because of migration of the Hispanics and Latinos from Mexico, Central and South America. The sport is really popular in those regions, why, you ask. Well the best players are from those regions. Good examples are: Lionel Messi, Neymar Santos, and Luis Suarez. The kids there are always watching them and want to be as good and successful like them one day.

I have nothing else to say, but to say that Americans, you must appreciate the game one day because Hispanics and Latinos are immigrating to U.S.A and it will be a popular sport. The game will be appreciated one day, try and prove me wrong, AMERICANS!

Samsung Users Don’t Diss BlackBerry!

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Hey there!

You’re most likely reading this post off of your mobile device. If you’re reading this off of a Samsung, you must think that you own a very good phone. Well the truth is that you do own a good phone. Now, have you ever thought about your mobile security? Well for the last let’s say… from when Samsung started making mobile devices, their security hasn’t been very good. I say the same for Apple. Every mainstream mobile device except for BlackBerrys did not have good security. Until this week. BlackBerry announced a partnership with Samsung on Thursday afternoon in order to boost mobile security for the South Korean based company. Samsung customers will have the option to use BB’s BES 12 mobile security service. This is a huge boost for Samsung users and BlackBerry as a company. On Thursday the 13th BlackBerry’s stock on NASDAQ went up a bit over 7%. BlackBerry is not only restructuring as a mobile phone company, but as a provider of internet security. So Samsung users don’t diss BlackBerry because BB provides your security. They have access to your documents, music, text messages, and even your pictures! Maybe if a Samsung user insults BB, John Chen would exploit their pictures. They’d end up on BlackBerry fan site CrackBerry, and all of their friends would know what they were looking at last night. The Samsung user would then have to travel to Waterloo, Ontario and beg for mercy upon his/her browser history.

As a BlackBerry addict, I’ve heard bad things from Samsung users about BlackBerry. If I hear you guys diss BB, you know what I’ll say…….

ISIS: Getting to the Problem

Tags

, , , , , ,

The issue of ISIS may have cooled down here in Canada; however they are still at large. In fact, the problem in Syria has gotten far worse than what we anticipated. ISIS needs to be stopped before it spreads globally. We need to examine the problem closer. The big problem right now is the airstrikes. After researching into this matter, I founded out that the airstrikes are not very effective. It is true that the airstrikes are destroying bases and artillery used by ISIS militants; however, airstrikes usually don’t target any of the actual militants. Now, you may be saying to me that destroying their military equipment is a right way to go because it will force ISIS to spend more money. However, you need to see the full story to understand how big the ISIS operation really is.

ISIS took over a crucial money source about a few months ago. That money source is the oil pipeline. ISIS makes $1,000,000,000 (a billion dollars) a day just from controlling the oil pipelines. A few weeks ago the pipeline was destroyed; however ISIS had already made hundreds of billions of dollars from the pipeline. From that money, ISIS can support equipment costs for years. I think there is a huge strategic error in our combat against ISIS.

In order to solve a problem, we need to get to the source. The source is the ISIS militants themselves. What Canada, US and even the UN needs to do it to send out ground troops. We need the ISIS militants killed. Without enough ISIS militants, ISIS cannot advance anymore because it is impossible without a mass amount of people. That is the key to defeating ISIS. We need to have our ground troops combat ISIS. We need ISIS to see that we are not afraid of them. Once there are no more ISIS militants, there is nobody to fight against.

The only problem with this is if the government is willing to do such a thing. The cost of flying the soldiers in, making a base, and attack ISIS militants is going to cost a lot of money. But again, keep in mind that the airstrikes should cost around 8 billion dollars in total which costs more that deploying ground troops. Sometimes, government officials make up lies and say that it is not “necessary”, however that is just the crap that politicians make up to avoid controversy.
Normally, I’d understand why politicians would want to dismiss the idea of having ground troops to fight against ISIS. These times are different. ISIS knows no boundaries. We will not be intimidated by ISIS. During these hard times, we will need to stand up for what we believe. We must do everything we can to stop ISIS before it becomes another Bin-Laden assassination mission.

Apple, the new Samsung

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Our main mobile phone companies Samsung and Apple are always competing to satisfy customer needs. Right now I believe that Apple is trying to copy Samsung, and make their own sales. I don’t think many people notice this, but I have noticed this. For one, Samsung manufactures Apples screens for their devices. There are many reasons why I believe this and it all started after Steve Jobs passed away…

When I saw the preview of iOS 7 I quickly looked at it and the first thing that came to mind was, why does it look like an Android system? Honestly, It just hit me and I felt that this would cause some controversy whether or not Samsung would sue Apple for making their new system update, like the theirs.

When Apple revealed the new iPhone 5s, it hit me again. The design looked nice, but looking at the front screen, edges, and back it made me want to compare a Samsung Galaxy to the iPhone 5s. The home button was changed from having a square on it to a clear circle. The edges and the back of the phone looked more metallic, compared to the iPhone 5.

Apple then released the iPad with Retina display and iPad Mini, it looked like the new iPad with Retina display, but smaller. I then thought, well people don’t want a heavy tablet with them, so that’s why they created the iPad with Retina display and the iPad Mini was created because was because no one wants a big tablet in their hands.

Apple revealed their iPhone 6 which had the size of a Samsung Galaxy S5. Zak told me, people just want a bigger phone nowadays, So I agreed with him. It also had the same design as the iPhone 5s did. The edges on the other hand was curved, just like a Samsung Galaxy. They then put the lock button on the right edge of the iPhone too.

Apple then revealed their iWatch, I knew my uncle had a Samsung Galaxy Gear (Samsung watch) and it was able to do the same things Apple said their iWatch would do. Has a camera, can use Bluetooth connections, and to make calls

Now Apple has revealed the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3. They have changed it design a bit. The home button now has no square on it just like the current iPhone 6. The iPads still retain the curve on the edges though, which you can compare to a Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Honestly, I own an iPhone 5 and I’m not trying to be hypocrite. I’m just saying, these things are what I believe that Apple is trying to imitate Samsung. This is what some people notice and I am trying to tell others of what I am seeing and believing. The message I am trying to convey is to compare the next Apple device to a Samsung and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was the person who shot dead the solider on guard at the war memorial on Parliament Hill. He was shot dead by the sergeant-at-arms, Kevin Victers. More developments came in today. The first one was of his tour on Parliament Hill. The other new development was that he had the intention of beheading one of the federal politicians.

First is the fact that he had a tour on Parliament Hill days before the shooting. The thing about this is that this isn’t any tour. During the tour, he got around into some private rooms and learned a lot about the rooms at the Parliament Hill. This makes it that much easier for Michael Zehaf-Bibeau to enter the Parliament Hill. He also asked the tour guide questions on the security of the Parliament Hill. Michael Zehaf-Bibeau knew a lot about the strengths and the weaknesses in terms of security for Parliament Hill. This meant that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau knew where he could get into Parliament Hill the easiest. This greatly contributes to the act itself because without that tour, he wouldn’t know how to get into to the Parliament. Also, knowing the Parliament structure itself lets Michael Zehaf-Bibeau plan the escape route. Of course, he never made it there.

The other startling thing is the fact that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau wanted to behead a federal politician. We already know that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau is not linked to ISIS in any way, so why would Michael Zehaf-Bibeau consider such a thing? Did he train to become a murderer in Canada based on the teachings of ISIS? We will never know. These radicalized individuals are crazy.

We must do everything we can to protect us from the dangerous of radicalized individuals. We cannot control what people do, however we must run under the assumption that anything is possible. How much the ISIS teaching spreads… nobody will know. Only time will tell. It seems more and more that ISIS is the new Al Qaeda. Let’s all hope that this will end soon.

Joe Oliver Surplus: Full of Lies

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Joe Oilver, Canada’s finance minister recently announced a projected 6.4 billion dollar surplus for the fiscal year of 2015. Now I am highly doubtful of his projected surplus. It is true that there were cuts across the board to save money for the government; however, if you take into consideration the recent money the government spent recently, you would instantly see some red flags.

There are a lot of infrastructural developments and upgrades now-a-days. I live in the Greater Toronto Area so I have an upfront experience with this. The infrastructure is aging indeed. Many bridges and roads are in need of repairs. Many of the municipalities can’t fund the infrastructural projects on their own. Therefore, they will turn to the provincial or federal government for help. Also because that winter is coming very soon, the need to repair the roads is a priority. This should be a time where we need money. The cost of road repairs is pretty costly. The cost of repairing a pot-hole is $25. Toronto has thousands if not millions of pot holes on only 1 street. Imagine all the streets in Canada combined. The cost for road repairs and new pavement is even more expensive. Last winter had been especially harsh, so the cost of road repairs should be huge. Also there were a couple of bridge incidents this year. Bridge repair costs are usually $1,000,000 per bridge. The most costly project is perhaps the Gardner Express Way. The Gardiner is a main artery of Toronto and is crumbling down. Repair on the Gardiner is said to cost $75,000,000. As you can imagine the cost and funding for this is tremendous. Remember 75 million dollars is the government’s estimation, it should cost much more.

Next is our battle against ISIS. Canada is joining in the fight against ISIS by summoning some of its CF-18s to conduct air attacks on ISIS targets. This is the right thing to do. However, please do remember I am trying to talk about the cost and how the government is lying about the surplus. Back to the point. These airstrikes cost a lot. When I say a lot, I mean it. As in the entire ISIS combat project could cost $8,000,000,000 dollars. That’s right… 8 billion dollars. Ammunition, flights, supplies and other things make the missions very costly. There is also no sign of ISIS backing down, so the airstrikes may continue for quite a while.

The last one may be not as significant. It is the battle against Ebola. Canada is sending medical resources and food there. That mean they need planes to ship the food there. That, my friends is also supported by the federal government. This could be over $300,000,000 in cost by the end of this.

To sum this all up, I am furious at the government for the lies that create and announce to the public. Government was created to serve the people better and manage the money better. The point of government is not to make their citizens happy by lying to them. There is too much political-fog in the air. We need to keep our heads straight and not get blinded by the endless lies that the government makes.

Rosetta Space Project: Breakthrough or a Waste of Money?

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Today, an unmanned satellite was deployed from a rocket called the Rosetta Project. The entire project was to have an unmanned satellite land on an asteroid. Then, the satellite was to take photos of the sights from the asteroid and take drill samples to study. This might seem easy however it was actually very difficult. There were endless calculations to do. The gravitation pull and push, the orbit speed, the amount of thrust needed for the unmanned satellite to land perfectly and much more. People in the project spent thousands of hours just doing the calculations. Preparations, programming, and approval of projects took even longer. The project started in 2004 and was the beginning of a long arduous journey. The rocket carrying the space probe satellite was launched in 2004. It traveled for many years using the gravitational pull of the sun. Finally, on November 12th, 2014, the rocket was near the asteroid that was the target of the mission. It was floating between Mars and Jupiter. The probe was deployed. It successfully landed on the surface of the asteroid. As this happened billions of miles away from Earth, people from the European Space Agency command center let out a great sigh of relief. The landing was no exactly smooth. The probe landed on a rocky and uneven region. Only one of the drills that were intended to penetrate the asteroid worked. This makes the job harder because of the instability of the probe itself. The probe already took picture of the sights of the asteroid. The next thing the probe will do is insert a drill core to get samples from the asteroid.

Many people say this project was very significant because it could clarify many unknown facts about asteroids. We currently can only guess many features of an asteroid and don’t know much about it. Many people are hoping that with this latest project, people would understand more about asteroids and their movement. This is very true; however, the cons overtake the pros of this project easily.
This project was very costly. In fact, it costs over a billion dollars. Many countries need the money to help ease the debt. That was a billion dollars basically wasted. I say wasted because I don’t gain anything from this. Only the scientists will get gain from this. The sole reason of this was to clarify facts on asteroids. Also, the entire project is in the air, literality. Two-thirds of the securing mechanisms didn’t even work properly and the risk of the probe slipping out from the surface of the asteroid is imminent. We can’t get the billion dollars back because doing this project will have no affect on our global economy what-so-ever. What is the point of this then? This is one of the most lavished and pathetic ways to treat money I can think of. Literally, these people are sending money into the air —-that most likely, will never come back to Earth.
This money could have been better spent investing in infrastructure, education, healthcare, and disease combats like Ebola. Why would one spend such money on something of so little significance? The world needs money. We can explore the universe once we have the major issues on Earth solved and figured out. This is truly outrageous.
Guys… Don’t support this BS. This is an insult to people who live in third world countries. Think about all the poor little children in the world who are so helpless. A billion dollars would have been spent to help those children. I truly fell horrible for the children in Africa. I hope no more of this crap happens again. Money should be regarded as a luxury, not as something that comes easily.

Haunted Parliament Hill

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

By: Mark, with a special thanks to Zak.
Canada has a vast array of haunted houses, cursed buildings and ghost house myths. The Parliament Hill is one of the most important buildings in all of Canada. It is where the government’s highest ranking officials and the Federal government officials work. However, it also beholds many accounts and many myths about political ghost figures attacking people who have worked in Parliament Hill.

The first thing I’d like to mention is how old the Parliament Hill is and a bit of the history. The age of the building is quite old. It is 255 years old. Contraction commenced on the building in 1859. Throughout the years many additional spaces and rooms have been added. The idea of having a fortress around Parliament Hill was introduced back then; however, the idea never took off. Now, you may be thinking that this has no relation what so ever to my topic, however, haunted buildings are known to be more “haunted” and “dangerous” when they are older.

On top of that, Parliament Hill had quite a couple of tragedies and “unlucky days”. However, the events were certainly very strange and obscure.
1. The center block of Parliament Hill was destroyed by a fire on February, 3rd, 1916. Despite the ongoing war overseas, the center blocks were re-laid by Governor General Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught on September 1st, 1916. The tower was also burnt down, so they had to build a new one. Eleven years later (in 1927) the tower was finished and it was renamed the Peace Tower.
2. In April 1989, a Greyhound line bus traveling to New York City from Montreal (a part of Quebec) was hijacked by an armed man and driven onto the lawn in front of the Centre Block. A standoff with police ensued and lasted eight hours; though three shots were fired, there were no injuries. This was not the end of this kind of incident. Then, came a second incident in September 1996 where an individual forcibly drove his car into the Centre Block doors and proceeded to jump out and attack RCMP officers who were standing guard. Nobody was fatally hurt. It was later decided in the interests of national security that Parliament Hill, which up to that time had been open to limited public traffic on the lower lawn, would be restricted to government and media vehicles only.
3. The last incident happened very recently. On October 22nd, 2014, a gunman opened fire and shot dead a soldier on guard at a war memorial. Then the gunman went into the Parliament Hill and started to go on a shooting spree. Luckily, nobody else was injured. The Sergeant-At-Arms, Kevin Vickers later shot the gunman. The single shot killed the gunman. This is a very recent incident. zakopinion.com has already done an article on the October 22nd, 2014 incident.
This is now the really scary and creepy part. These are actual accounts of ghost and spirit encounters in the Parliament Hill.
There are many ghost stories across Canada and quite a few have to do with former Prime Ministers and politicians.
One of the most famous haunting stories is that of the former Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King. He has been known to take part in many stances and had a shrine to his late mother at his home at Laurier House.
There was one incident where staff from the Parliament Hill had a strange and mysterious experience. The staff member clearly closed all the lights and was preparing to leave the room. Then, he saw there was light from a window, so he walked there to double check. He saw that one the lights were opened and there was nobody in that room. This is only one of the strange incidents.
Thomas D’arcy McGee was one of the fathers of confederation. He was a well known person. There is a museum nearby called the Bytown Museum. There was a plaster mold of his and his fingerprints. The staffs in charge of taking care for the plaster were on a break. They put the plaster into a locked drawer. Later when the staff entered the room again to continue their work, they found the drawer open. There was no one else in the room. The drawer was open and the plaster was moved away to a different location, however, it still remained in the room.
The last one is perhaps not very believable; however, for the reason of listing out the historical outline, I will describe it. Canada’s first Prime Minister, John A. Macdonald had lived in a great home. The home is now the home of the British High Commissioner. However many of the people living in the home have reported seeing ghost forms of him. That is the end of that. There is not much evidence with the last case; however the first two were very straight forward.
Our Parliament Hill is deep and enriched with history from the past. Parliament Hill is a haunted place. Or do you think it is rather a lie that has gone too far? I would love to hear from you. If you were to voice your opinion about this, that would be fantastic!

Remembrance Day: The Poppies

Tags

, , , ,

It’s that time of year again, the day we respect those who died in wars, that Canada has engaged in. To celebrate, we pin poppies to our jackets, in respect of those who died. How did the poppies get from the ground to our jackets? It came from the poem, In Flanders Fields. It talked about how poppies quickly grew around the graves of those who died in Ypres. People then made artificial poppies out of silk, put a needle through the middle of the poppy to hold the black seed part and the red pedals together and the needle then goes on your jacket.

To be honest with you, I wish pin poppies could get more popular. The reason I say this is because people keep getting poked with the needle and if pin poppies get popular, it could prevent poking into your skin. I hope to see that day come. Well, I wish everyone and the Canadian military a Happy Remembrance Day. My condolences of those lives taken during previous and ongoing wars…
