Lunar New Year

It bugs me when Chinese New Year is called "Lunar New Year" (as the City of Vancouver is wont to do). Areas with large populations of Chinese ex-pats follow lock-step with the timing as it applies to the Chinese time zone, so calling it "Chinese New Year" is wholly appropriate. In the smattering of countries that officially use the exact mechanism of Chinese calendar outside of China occasionally the day for the beginning of the year is different because local time causes the first new moon after the winter solstice to fall on a different day.

The Daily Colonist, November 1–11, 1915

#dailycolonist1915 #WWI - The news out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago.

I am, at last, caught up to exactly 100 years ago. The beginning of November 1915 has the British using gas for the first time, fighting in Bulgaria, King George V recovering from an accident at the front, the defeat of women's suffrage in the United States, new innovations in aerial warfare, and a new Japanese emperor, among other news.


The Daily Colonist, October 1–31, 1915

#dailycolonist1915 #WWI - The news out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago:

Drug runners, whalers, pirates, propaganda, protests, Zeppelin attacks, giant telescopes, darkest Africa, Hallowe'en haunted houses, murder and atrocities are just a few of the things I've picked out from October 1915.


The Daily Colonist, September 14–30, 1915

#dailycolonist1915 #WWI - The news our of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago:

In this update: Zeppelins, conspiracy theory (1915 style), propaganda, genocide, fall fashions, exploration and discovery in the far north, a major allied offensive on the western front and more.


The Daily Colonist, August 12–September 13, 1915

#dailycolonist1915 #WWI - The news out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago:

In an effort to catch up to being exactly one hundred years ago, this update covers just over a month. There is a lot in this update even though I restricted myself to just one article per day.


More on this later, but it was confirmed today that I will be the #VALT2015 Look Book Photographer.

The Daily Colonist, July 29–August 2, 1915

#dailycolonist1915 - The news out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago.

Honours for the Canadian Prime Minister, genocide in Syria, new and horrible war technologies, a famous electric chair execution, legal haggling over Kits Point, progress on the world's largest telescope, news of a good whaling season, Victoria man's body killed in the sinking of the Lusitania recovered in Ireland, and amazing entertainment at the Pantages.  


The Daily Colonist, July 13–14, 1915

#dailycolonist1915 - The news out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago:

In a mere two days we have genocide, secret agents, conspiracy, awards from the king, real technology that reads like steampunk fiction and a new university.
