Four quarters an hour (quick math)


Four quarters an hour

This viral interview features a man who incorrectly calculates the number of quarters in an hour, saying "Four quarters an hour" during a quick interview.

The man, who appears to be in a rush, is asked a question about the local economy. In his haste, he responds with what he thinks is a quick and correct answer, "Four quarters an hour," implying that there are four quarters in an hour. However, the correct answer is, of course, that there are four quarters in a dollar, not in an hour.

The clip went viral because of the man's confident but hilariously incorrect response, leading to many internet users sharing and remixing the video, often with humorous commentary or as a meme.

Winnipeg business owner says overflowing bin that led to overcharge staged by garbage company

A Winnipeg business owner is furious after receiving an exorbitant bill from a private garbage collection company for an alleged overfilled bin. Brad Wallin, president of Wallin Industries, a local metal fabrication business, revealed to 680 CJOB’s 'The Start' that his recent garbage pickup bill from Waste Management of Canada Corporation was six times higher than usual.

According to Wallin, the company levied an additional overage charge, claiming the bin was overflowing. However, Wallin asserted that the situation was manipulated by the Waste Management employee, and he claims to have video evidence supporting his allegation. Global News obtained the security footage, which, according to Wallin, shows the Waste Management driver artificially altering the appearance of the bin to create the impression that it was overfilled.

“It shows the driver pulling up, he gets out of the truck, he unlocks the bin, he reaches into the dumpster, starts pulling out a little bit of cardboard, hangs it over the edges,” Wallin explained.

Despite Wallin's complaints to the company, he said he was given the runaround until finally hearing from an executive at Waste Management’s Toronto headquarters. “In my eyes, it’s just not acceptable," Wallin concluded.

COMPETITION: Win Harry Wild Series 2 on DVD

Following its hugely successful launch on Acorn TV and its third series set to premiere on the same day, Harry Wild Series 2 and Series 1 and 2 Box set arrive on DVD and digital 13 May 2024 courtesy of Acorn Media International. It’s the perfect time to discover this much-loved crime caper.

And to celebrate we have a great competition and 3 copies of Series 2 on DVD to give away.

The inimitable Jane Seymour (The Kominsky Method, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman) returns as the eponymous Harry Wild for a second helping of ‘cleverly constructed whodunnit fun’ (The Sun) in this charming, effortlessly engaging, refreshingly modern murder mystery series.
In series two, former literature professor Harry Wild (Seymour) remains dedicated to one thing – solving crime – having adopted a rather unusual pastime in her retirement. Continuing to work alongside her trusty partner and sidekick, Fergus Reid (Rohan Nedd – Whitstable Pearl), this dynamic crime-busting duo has their work cut out for them.

Much to the annoyance of Harry’s son, Charlie (Kevin Ryan – Guilt), a busy detective in the Dublin Garda, Harry and Fergus throw themselves into their work, solving everything from missing persons to murders. However, when Fergus’ mother turns up out of the blue – years after abandoning her family – they have a deeply personal mystery to solve: What are her intentions and can Fergus trust her?

They must also solve the murder of Harry’s ex-lover, a woman who has gone missing from an Irish village steeped in dark history, the poisoning of a maid of honour during a bachelorette party, a crossbow-wielding killer, a murder mystery party turning deadly and the ominous demise of a boxing gym owner.
In series one retired literature professor Harriet – AKA Harry Wild – is mugged, setting off a transformative journey like no other. Reluctantly recovering at the home of her PI son Charlie and his wife Orla (Amy Huberman – Finding Joy), Harry stumbles upon his murder case files and decides to take matters into her own hands. Setting out as an amateur sleuth, her path soon crossed with that of her mugger, Fergus, whom she recruits as her unlikely sidekick. Together, they form a sprightly detective duo, unravelling mysteries with each new adventure.

With a dazzling lead, quirky cases, light-hearted humour and joyful characters, Harry Wild is the sleuthing sensation we’ve been waiting for.

Was this a ghost caught on camera? Did a ghost pull on my wife's necklace? You decide

double cross necklace

I stumbled upon an intriguing video online that left me captivated. Here's the heartwarming tale:

"My wife had often spoken of sensing a comforting presence around her, but I had always approached her claims with skepticism. However, this particular instance felt different. As she described a gentle tug at her necklace, I swiftly reached for my phone, eager to capture any evidence of this phenomenon. To our absolute delight, the camera revealed more than we had ever imagined, affirming her profound sensations and filling us with a sense of wonder and awe."

So, what could it be? A benevolent spirit, perhaps, or a delightful coincidence? It led me to ponder, maybe a symbol of protection, like a double cross necklace, could have enhanced our experiences even further.

Delving into the rich history of the double cross, one can't help but marvel at its diverse applications:

In Medieval Times, the double cross symbol, also known as the Cross of Lorraine, served as a beacon of protection and hope amidst the tumult of the Crusades. Its presence was a source of solace for many, a reminder of the enduring power of faith and unity.

Furthermore, in the realm of literature and film, the double cross emerges as a powerful motif, representing a myriad of themes. From tales of redemption to narratives of resilience, it serves as a compelling symbol of the human spirit's triumph over adversity. In genres like crime fiction and noir films, it adds depth to characters' moral dilemmas, sparking thought-provoking discussions about integrity and redemption.

Ultimately, the double cross embodies positivity and resilience, reminding us of the enduring power of hope and faith in the face of uncertainty. Its rich history and symbolic significance continue to inspire and uplift individuals across generations, serving as a beacon of light in times of darkness.

Not to mention these kinds of trends are big on Tiktok now as well.

The history of the necklace is as diverse as the cultures that have adorned themselves with these elegant accessories throughout time. From ancient civilizations to modern fashion trends, necklaces have held symbolic significance and cultural importance. In ancient Egypt, necklaces were often worn as amulets, believed to offer protection and ward off evil spirits. In medieval Europe, necklaces adorned with religious symbols served as expressions of faith and devotion. During the Renaissance, intricate necklaces became symbols of wealth and status, often featuring precious gemstones and elaborate designs. In more recent times, necklaces have evolved to reflect individual style and personality, with a wide range of materials and designs available to suit every taste. Today, necklaces continue to be cherished as timeless pieces of adornment, embodying both beauty and meaning for those who wear them.

O.J. Simpson

Juror Carrie Bess tells “OJ: Made in America” that she was among “90 percent” of jurors seeking payback. 

The O.J. Simpson murder trial was one of the most highly publicized trials in American history. In 1994, former NFL star O.J. Simpson was accused of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman. The trial, which lasted from January to October 1995, captured the attention of the nation. Simpson's defense team, led by attorneys Johnnie Cochran, Robert Shapiro, and F. Lee Bailey, famously argued that Simpson was framed by the Los Angeles Police Department. The prosecution presented DNA evidence and argued that Simpson had a history of domestic violence. In the end, Simpson was acquitted of all criminal charges in a verdict that sparked widespread debate and controversy.
