BlackBerry Themed Skating Parties and Light-poles Planned in Waterloo

BlackBerry Themed Skating Parties and Light-poles Planned in Waterloo

Research In Motion won’t solely have the BlackBerry 10 excitement at the launch events scattered around the world. No, they plan to keep the spirit alive in their home town, Waterloo, Ont.

RIM plans to hold skating parties at community rinks, as well as decorate light poles in areas of Waterloo and neighbouring Kitchener with banners to promote BlackBerry and thank the community for its support.

City leaders had to make an exception to long-standing rules about corporate advertising on city property. “It’s just a small way of saying thank you for sticking behind us and being there during the transition period,” said Morgan Elliott, director of government relations, in an interview.

BlackBerry-themed skating parties will be held at Kitchener City Hall and in Waterloo Town Square on Jan. 30 to coincide with BlackBerry 10’s reveal. At the skating rinks, RIM says it will supply complimentary hot chocolate and BlackBerry-branded cookies.

This colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion. See PHIL 1832 for a black and white version of this image.

Where is Ebola virus found in nature?The exact origin, locations, and natural habitat (known as the "natural reservoir") of Ebola virus remain unknown. However, on the basis of available evidence and the nature of similar viruses, researchers believe that the virus is zoonotic (animal-borne) and is normally maintained in an animal host that is native to the African continent. A similar host is probably associated with Ebola-Reston which was isolated from infected cynomolgous monkeys that were imported to the United States and Italy from the Philippines. The virus is not known to be native to other continents, such as North America.
