Titanic

Whether you are a fan of the film industry or not, we can all take time to appreciate the beauty of Canadian nature.
We're just as surprised as you are.
It might not be there much longer.
Should Silicon Vally tech moguls be cozying up to Donald Trump? This is just one of very many questions people are asking
Journalist Senan Molony says a fire in one of the coal bunkers compromised the vessel.
Vancouver newspapers didn't quite report the story correctly when the Titanic sank on April 15, 1912. That much is obvious
A movie is only as good as the actors starring in it. Casting the main role can mean the difference between box office gold, or bust.

Depending on the point of view, I think most of us feel we've already hit the iceberg -- or flown too close to the sun. Are there answers? You bet.
Just like the Titanic, the wealthy and most adaptable from the "First Class World" will jump into the lifeboats and try to save their most "worthy" citizens, while the poorest and the most vulnerable in the "Third Class World" will go down into waters and die when the "ship" has hit the two, three or four-degree iceberg.
When the Titanic set off on its maiden voyage back in 1912, it was a momentous occasion. Hoping to be remembered as the most
