FIFA Women's Semi-Finals in Edmonton

It's been an exciting few weeks as the FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015™ has been unfolding in our Commonwealth Stadium since June 6.

Saturday's quarter-final action saw Japan defeat Australia 1-0, which didn't stop Australian fans' enthusiasm in the stands as crowds came out to support both countries, flying flags, face painted, and cheerfully waving team-coloured paraphernalia.

The winning goal for Japan came from Mana Iwabuchi, 22, who scored in the second half. Australia is a strong team but Japan has shown consistent dominance, and we look forward to more action as Japan moves on to play England in the FIFA Women's World Cup Semi-Finals in Edmonton on Wednesday.

Final Edmonton Matches:

1.You can learn something useful from anyone.
Schools would have you believe that teaching
comes from those who know to those who do not know.
But just like a broken watch will tell the time accurately at least two times per day
so too does the stupidest person on the planet have the potential to provide a brilliant
insight even if this insight is so wrong it makes you realise what is right.
So the next time you write someone off as being stupid, or not educated enough
or beneath you, think again and consider
that there is a diamond buried underneath that lump of coal.

In school they teach you abstracts, ideas and how to get them on paper
and leave quality control to

Startup Edmonton is an entrepreneurial campus and startup community hub
which kickstarts and activates local startups.
They create collisions - between developers, designers, makers, founders,
investors and mentors - transforming ideas into companies.


From the Globe and Mail
Being an entrepreneur in booming Alberta
isn’t always the embarrassment of riches you might assume.
Oil dominates. For everyone else, venture capital is tough to come by,
talent is snapped up and costs are higher.
The effect, some fear, is a black-hole industry sucking up and stagnating everything.
And that’s where Ken Bautista hopes to switch things up.

In the midst of winter, keep your game up
on this colourful, 18-hole miniature golf course,
where the weather is always perfect.
Grab your family and play 18-holes of miniature golf on a cartoon-styled course,
complete with meandering greens, water hazards and tricky curves,
cactus and trees crowned by navigable balloons
shots that go rippling around hilly greens,
up and through tree stumps. Keep laughing as you avoid the sand trap
to finally sink your first hole-in-one.
Watch out for the traps!
West Edmonton Mall’s Professor Wem’s Adventure Golf
is a fun and fanciful place to putt and play.
