SPIbelt Review: The Perfect Pouch for Athletes and Travellers

The first question that came to my mind when I came across the SPIbelt was what purpose could it serve? On the surface it appears to be a tiny, thin, storage pouch that can’t carry much. The SPIbelt was created by Kim Overton as a solution to her troubles transporting her keys during her runs. Now why would someone spend money to only transport their keys?

Cigarette Butt Litter Prevention Act

A new act proposed by Brant Liberal MPP Dave Levac, would have smokers paying upwards of $3000 to toss a cigarette on the ground. A City of Toronto bylaw already exists which fines individuals $365 for littering.  According to reports, around 4.5 trillion cigarettes are found on the ground every year worldwide, leading to chemicals into waterways and creating hazards for wildlife.  This proposed act, has only gone through its first reading and will not be talked upon until atleast next year.

Amazing Mens Shaver: Shick Hydro 5

Let me preface this review by stating that I have an extremely fast growing beard.  My beard can be fully grown to the point of being on Grizzly Adams within a mere 10 days.  The biggest challenge that I have experienced over my 4 decades of shaving is that it is never close enough and it almost always irritates my skin.

I have tried literally every type of electric shaver from the High End Philips Arcitec with its 22nd Century looks to the Braun Series 7 that sells for upwards of $200.  The “regular” blade type shavers have not escaped my testing and evaluation either and the recent introduction of Gillettes Fusion Power which adds some vibration to the removable and replaceable blades.

$50,000 Perfect Smile

It seems that everyone wants the PERFECT SMILE. You can have the perfect smile as well, for an astonishing $50,000. Surprisingly enough, hundreds of these procedures have been done over the years and are gaining popularity in Canada. Richmond Hill dentist Allen Aptekar, specializes in doing “all on four” procedures, and takes about 5 hours to complete.

Individuals who have rotten teeth,  chipped teeth, or thinking about dentures have been open to the idea of getting brand new teeth put it, and people have even been taking out loans, just to get this dental procedure done.

I think it’s pretty ridiculous to pay that amount of money, but your mouth, teeth are a big part of your health, and people will pay a lot of money to make sure they are looking the best, and also feeling it.
