Super League Triathlon to return to Ottawa

Editor

In an interview with 1310 NEWS, Michael Brown, the race director and COO of the Super League Triathlon (SLT), reveals the event will return to Ottawa in 2020 and 2021, following a successful weekend run.

The triathlon’s return was greenlit through a contract between the SLT, the City and Ottawa Tourism. In addition to this, the event also made news by marking the first time the Ottawa River was included as part of a sporting event.

“That’s really exciting for us. I think it always is when you’re breaking new ground. We worked really hard with Parks Canada, the NCC, The City of Ottawa and Ottawa Tourism to ensure we could get in the water,” says the COO.

To make this happen, Brown had weeds pulled from the site, worked closely with city officials and tested the water several times to ensure it was fit for athletes to swim in. In the end, Brown’s efforts paid off.

“We used this as a proof of concept that we could prove that this can be done in Ottawa, and we did that,” he says, adding that, “We’re excited to come back next year and offer bigger fields, better, faster racing and bring back more of the best pros in the world. We’re excited for 2020 and even more excited for 2021.”

Every year, the SLT brings together competitors of all ages from around the world. It’s final contestants will go on to compete in the SLT’s championship series, get first class travel accommodations for stops to England, Italy and Asia, as well as a 1.5 million dollar prize.

Biometric Vaccines Are Here Preceding Forced Digital ID

The future of vaccines is here, just in time for the coming forced digital ID. This isn’t some sci-fi movie based on some conspiracy theorists’ idea of Revelation where every living being is required to be tagged. Biometric vaccines are real, are in use and have been deployed in the United States.

Biometric vaccines are immunizations laced with digital biometrics, created from merging the tech industry with big pharma. This new form of vaccine injects microchips into the body creating a global ID matrix to track and control every person. Not only has this satanic system already been rolled out, billions may already have been injected unaware.

ID2020 Alliance, a program aimed at chipping every person on earth, has collaborated with GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations) to inject these microchips into the body through immunization.

Where to Live Now: A data-driven look at Ottawa neighbourhoods

Editor

What does community have to do with buying a house? Do people really want friendly neighbours, or do they just want the most square footage for their buck?

In The Village Effect: How Face-to-Face Contact Can Make Us Healthier, Happier and Smarter, Montreal psychologist Susan Pinker cited a 2010 study conducted at Brigham Young University in Idaho that analyzed relationship data for more than 300,000 people over nearly eight years. She discovered that people who were integrated into their communities had half the risk of dying during that time as those who led more solitary lives. In Pinker’s analysis, integration meant simple interactions such as exchanging baked goods, babysitting, borrowing tools, and spur-of-the-moment visits — exactly the kinds of exchanges we saw grow when COVID-19 forced us all to stay home.

For this year’s real estate feature in the Spring/Summer 2020 print edition, we crunched the numbers to find the neighbourhoods where we think you’re most likely to find such opportunities for engagement. Using data available through the Ottawa Neighbourhood Study (ONS), we chose six indicators that we believed would attract those looking to connect with the people around them. Omitting rural areas, we awarded points to each neighbourhood according to where it landed in the ranking. (In the event of a tie, we used a secondary indicator of the same theme to refine the ranking.) You’ll find the ten neighbourhoods that performed the best according to those six indicators listed below, along with resident profiles and notable destinations in each ’hood — though many have been forced to adapt to COVID-19, most are offering delivery and/or take-out, and we are hopeful they will resume normal operations once it is safe to do so.
