TCL-ROKU TV is small on size, big on features

Latest News


TCL-ROKU TV is small on size, big on features

It’s not uncommon to see a 60-, 70- or 80-inch TV in some homes. However, a compact model might be better suited for a small apartment, a dorm room, or for when you want to binge-watch a series while getting your steps in on the treadmill. Older, CRT boob tubes may have been regulated to the basement, as they lack the features of today’s smart television sets.

Today, we expect that all TVs are HD, and work with any cable box, satellite receiver or antenna, and that they can easily connect to any gaming console. And, of course, it must have WiFi and connect to the Internet.

Just the thing

Built for the Canadian market in 2019, the 32-inch, TCL-Roku Smart LED TV (32S327-CA) measures a mere 28.8 x 17.1 x 3.0 inches. It comes with attachable feet, or it can be mounted to a wall. Weighing in at under 10 pounds, you’ll be amazed at how slim it is. You can carry it under your arm, put it in the trunk and take it anywhere.

Despite it’s diminutive size and simple black housing, it has crisp 32-inch FullHD (1080p) LED widescreen display. It features dual band WiFi, and three HDMI ports to connect external devices. It also has a USB port for viewing your own media. There’s a headphone jack for quiet listening, or to hook up an external speaker, as well as a digital audio output to take advantage of its Dolby Digital Plus premium audio. In addition, there’s a composite video jack, with a cable, to connect older video and gaming devices, and one to hookup your cable TV or satellite box.

Easy peasy

The TCL-Roku is designed to accept an HD antenna for over-the-air TV channels, but there’s also a Roku streamer built right in, so there’s no need for an external gadget. Roku gives you access to thousands of streaming channels so that you can enjoy unlimited movies, TV shows, live sports, music, news and much more. Most are free, but some may require a paid subscription.

Using this TV is a breeze starting with the step-by-step, on-screen setup. You don’t have to wade through complicated menus. Both the TV’s functionality and Roku’s streaming services are integrated. This intuitive interface allows you to navigate with one easy-to-use remote that has one-touch access to services like Netflix and YouTube.

But that’s not all

Other nifty features include mirroring, so that you can watch media from your smartphone, your tablet or your PC on your TV. Guest mode is perfect if you run an Airbnb. You can restrict access to your streaming services, while guests can sign on to their own accounts and are signed out when they leave. Should you need to adjust the picture, simply go to settings and select dark, darker, normal, bright or brighter – that’s it.

TCL is fairly new to the North American market – barely a year on the Canadian TV scene. They produce a series of low-cost, high-definition TVs. The TCL 32-inch Roku Smart LED TV (32S327-CA) retails for $219.99 on Amazon, at Best Buy and at Walmart. A 40-inch model is also available.

Wellness in the Rockies: Transitional travel experiences on the rise

Wellness in the Rockies: Transitional travel experiences on the rise

Kootenay Lake appears to be a glacier-fed river on the map. But, its impressive length (104 kilometres) makes it the fifth largest lake in British Columbia (BC). Protected by the Purcell and Selkirk Mountain ranges, and bordering with Montana, Idaho and Washington states, many communities around Kootenay Lake became respite for American draft dodgers and counter-culture hippies in the 60s and 70s. As a result, a distinctive lifestyle arose – one that focused on personal development, simplicity and wellness.

Today, in addition to the recreational opportunities in the area, visitors are drawn to the locally sourced food, art studios and experiential healing options, which include Nelson’s Himalaya Salt Caves and Ainsworth’s natural, mineral-rich hot springs. The Yashodhara Ashram (Ya-show-dara), and its infamous Temple of Light atop a cliff on the east shore of Kootenay Bay, continues to offer respite for anyone who’s looking for it.

What is an Ashram?

By traditional standards, an Ashram is a monastery for East Indian religions. They’re typically secluded, allowing for proper attention to spiritual instruction, yogic activity and meditation. In the book Eat Pray Love, by Elizabeth Gilbert, the author stops off at a more-traditional Ashram in India on her personal pilgrimage.

At Yasodhara Ashram, near Nelson, BC, they work to demystify the experience for westerners through practical, spiritual teachings, and an openness to all who come.

Yasodhara’s early beginnings

Swami Radha (formerly Sylvia Hellman) was a German-Canadian woman who had recently returned from extensive training in India. She had been tasked with bringing Eastern learning to Western ways of thinking. In 1963, Swami Radha stumbled upon the property known as Yasodhara Estates. Despite the original land owner having no clear connection to Eastern tradition, its title (akin to names of notable female characters from both Buddhist and Hindu scripture) was fortuitous – a sign for the Swami (spiritual teacher) to honour the divine feminine.

Since the beginning, the centre has been entirely lead by women. There was something special about this land – which inspired a very different type of Ashram.

A nurturing approach

Many residents of the Ashram participate in Karma Yoga (selfless service), by helping in the kitchen, tending to the acres of orchards and gardens, in addition to mending structures and other chores. The Ashram prides itself on its contribution to ecological sustainability. It’s been widely recognized for its efforts in bringing innovative, energy efficient technologies, and solutions, to its operations.

A generation of change

The use of the word ‘spirituality’ is intentional. Though many of the practices here have their origins, the Ashram honours all religions and spiritual beliefs throughout the centre. Classes and workshops encourage self-reflection.

Given the progressiveness of their philosophies, and a response to a cultural shift, this Ashram hosts visitors and residents from all walks of life, no matter their sex, faith, culture or orientation. Mature adults, particularly, are drawn to the opportunity to rediscover themselves. Life is defined by transition. You may have experienced the separation from (or the passing of) a spouse or a loved one. Perhaps you’ve recently retired, or you find that your role as a parent or a grandparent has been redefined. Adapting to a new reality that’s not centred around work or family may feel like a leap into the unknown.

What to expect

Yasodhara Ashram offers weekend retreats, as well as ten-day immersion programs – each is focused on a unique aspect of growth and discovery. Workshops and yoga classes are suitable for all levels.

Expect plenty of quiet reflection, and meals are eaten in silence. You’ll gain an understanding of the energetic chakra system, as well as tools to help transform pre-conceived attitudes, and deepen your relationships with yourself, and with others. Optional participation in the nightly satsang, which is an honourable gathering in the Temple of Light, includes songs, mantras and prayer.

Finally, expect to be captivated by the picturesque setting of the Yasodhara Ashram. It will definitely provide you with a renewed appreciation as it relates to your connection with the universe.

Courts of Canterbury by Geranium

Courts of Canterbury offers an unbeatable adult lifestyle

Courts of Canterbury offers an unbeatable adult lifestyle

At Courts of Canterbury, in picturesque Port Perry, Geranium has created the ideal combination of life-enriching bungalow and bungalow-loft designs, along with superb finishes, in a remarkable adult lifestyle community. Phase 1 has been released, and two professionally finished, and furnished, model homes are now open.

Perfect for right-sizing home buyers who are looking to simplify life, a total of eight floor plan styles are available, many with a loft option.

Geranium collaborated with acclaimed Designer Jo-Ann Capelaci of Colours & Concepts Inc. to create two model homes, which showcase the incredible versatility of this new collection.

The Chesterman Model

This home is a one-of-a-kind corner lot design, with a loft. With 2,474 square feet of living space, it includes two bedrooms and a den on the ground floor. The loft has a third bedroom, a full bathroom and a lounge overlooking the great room below. This Euro-chic design has a grey palette, accented with deep, rich blue, along with pops of rust and orange accessories. Modern furnishings, with clean lines in shades of blue and brown, create a warm and welcoming home.

The Cavendish Model

A bright, one-storey, two-bedroom plus den model home is a generous 1,934 square feet. Blending a light palette of cool neutrals, accented with blues and greens, Capelaci infused this home with colours that were inspired by the community’s proximity to Lake Scugog. An open-concept kitchen, dining and great room overlook the back garden. The interior is bathed in natural light, and is augmented by a vaulted ceiling.

Sought-after community

At the Centre of the Courts of Canterbury is a residents-only clubhouse, where homeowners can enjoy a multitude of social and fitness activities, and participate in planned excursions.

Courts of Canterbury is located minutes from trails, parks and a marina, as well as unique shops, services and eateries in Port Perry’s historic downtown. Port Perry’s hospital is known for excellent, and friendly, personal care.

Home to many cultural events, including live theatre, music and festivals, the town is also within an easy one-hour commute to Toronto, via GO Transit, Durham Regional Transit, or Highways 407 and 401.

A commitment to quality

Courts of Canterbury homes will blend seamlessly into the existing Canterbury Common adult-lifestyle community, built more than 20 years ago. Exterior elevations will feature elegant scale and beautiful styling, ensuring that each residence is a lasting complement to this established, mature setting.

Interiors will boast nine-foot ceilings on the main floor, sleek layouts and quality finishes, such as granite countertops and custom cabinetry throughout. Homes range from 1,453 to 2,587 square feet on 50-foot lots, and are priced from $799,900.

Geranium’s stringent construction methods exceed Ontario’s Building Code, and along with the Tarion warranty coverage, new home buyers can rest assured that they’re purchasing a well-built, energy efficient home. Since 1977, Geranium has welcomed more than 8,000 families to its new home communities.

Backup home generators help make things a little less unpredictable

Backup home generators help make things a little less unpredictable

Global warming has been blamed for a lot of things in recent years, from rising sea levels to massive forest fires. Believe it or not, you can probably add an increase in the popularity of permanent backup home power generators to that list.

No matter where you come down on the global warming debate, it’s pretty clear the weather is changing. According to a 2019 report from Environment and Climate Change Canada entitled Canada’s Changing Climate, our climate is warming twice as fast as the global average, resulting in more frequent and severe storms of all types. Nasty weather, in turn, often results in power outages: according to the Canadian Electrical Association, significant weather events causing power outages have increased in Canada every year for the last five years. Given those trends, home power generators are beginning to make a lot of sense.

“Years ago, permanent generators were not user-friendly and the cost would have been prohibitive for most home applications,” says Adam Wachtel, master electrician and president of Concord, Ont.-based Platinum Electrical Contractors. “But the technology has advanced so much in the last 20 years, really since the Y2K scare, that you pay half the price for ten times the unit today.”

There are a number of reasons why a homeowner might want to invest in a permanent home power generator. With the population aging, there are more seniors living at home, often with health concerns, who would rather avoid the inconvenience, and even hardship, that comes with a prolonged power outage. There are also more people working at home and running home businesses who can’t afford extended downtime. Then there are those homeowners who may have suffered through one or more extended power outages before and aren’t eager to repeat the experience. “Maybe the insurance company has repaired a flooded basement a couple of times because outages shut off the electric sump pump and they have told the homeowner they won’t repair it again,” adds Wachtel.

The need for a backup generator can also depend on where you live. While power outages in urban areas tend to be less frequent and are usually quickly resolved, the story is different in rural areas. “If your home or cottage depends on an overhead power grid, outages can be a regular occurrence,” says Dave Wilson, master electrician and co-owner of Pickering, Ont.-based Captain Electric. “Anything can knock overhead wires down – wind, ice, snow, flooding, fire, even a tree falling. Depending on how bad the situation is, it may take the utility company hours or days to get the grid back up.”

When it comes to choosing a home generator, the decision largely hinges on just how much power the homeowner wants or needs to retain in the event of an outage.

“If they just want to support a few vital circuits – a sump pump, fridge, some lights, maybe a stairlift if they have mobility issues – and keep costs to a minimum, they can get by with a smaller, air-cooled unit,” explains Wilson. “But if they want the whole home backed up, so they have all the essential circuits as well as creature comforts like air conditioning, they are looking at a larger, more expensive, liquid-cooled unit.”

Permanent standby generators can be powered by propane, from an accompanying tank, or through a natural gas line. Systems are rated based on their ability to generate power, with smaller air-cooled units ranging from 7.5 KW up to 22 KW, and larger liquid-cooled units ranging up to 150 KW for residential whole-home applications. The principle behind the operation of standby generators is simple enough. Once installed, the unit sits in the ready mode and monitors the power supply to the home. In the event of an outage, the unit senses the loss of power and immediately responds by starting its motor, but doesn’t pass on replacement power right away. “When the unit first starts up, there is a nine- to 11-second lag before the replacement power kicks in,” Wachtel explains. “That’s because the transfer switch waits to determine if the loss of power from the grid is just momentary. If the outage is not momentary, the system is flipped over to the generator and the select circuits, or the whole home, are restored.”

On Standby: Backup power makes sense for seniors, people running businesses out of their homes, and those that are just tired of repeated blackouts.
On Standby: Backup power makes sense for seniors, people running businesses out of their homes, and those that are just tired of repeated blackouts.

Once engaged, the unit can run for hours or days if necessary; if running on propane, the size of the tank can be an issue during a prolonged power outage. When grid power is restored, the transfer switch senses that and simply reverses the process, but the restoration of power comes without the lag.

To stay ready for action, modern units run programmed diagnostic tests weekly. Diagnostic maintenance histories are recorded in the system and the homeowner can receive regular status reports. Owners can even purchase a service package that allows the dealer to monitor unit status remotely to head off potential problems. Says Wilson: “These units have to be maintained just like a car: they have cooling systems, batteries, and oil that needs to be changed.”

As with most large, expensive pieces of equipment, installing backup generators is not a job for amateurs. Depending on the capacity, unit footprints range from as little as two-by-four feet up to three-by-almost 10 feet, but all units require a stable flat base to operate properly. Smaller units can be fine with a few well-laid patio stones, but the largest whole-home units require a full poured concrete base. And depending on the municipality, there are usually a number of setback requirements that must be taken into consideration when picking a spot to place the unit.

“Each site presents its own challenges in terms of the terrain and how much room there is around the house,” says Wachtel. “There are Code considerations in terms of the building, the electrical connections, and the gas connections. If it’s a whole-home unit, the installer will have to coordinate with the utility provider to disconnect the home from the grid for probably a full day.”

“Not just any contractor can install these units, so it’s important for the homeowner to do their homework first,” adds Wilson. “They need to make sure they have all the appropriate permits in place and look for a certified dealer who knows the unit, knows the various codes, and is willing to service it after it’s installed.”

Local Focus: Vaughan

Vaughan is on the move – in more ways than one

Latest News


Vaughan is on the move – in more ways than one

Vaughan is a city on the move – quite literally, and in more ways than one. Located north of Toronto in York Region, Vaughan has long been one of the fastest growing municipalities in Canada, with a population now exceeding 306,000.

Comprising the Woodbridge, Maple, Thornhill, Concord and Kleinburg communities, each with their own characteristics and enjoying their own growth, Vaughan is a hub of development and activity. Once known as the city above Toronto, it’s now “the place to be.” And with good reason.

Hub of activity

With Hwys. 400 and 407 right there, and Hwy. 7 also running through town, transportation and transit have long been important parts of Vaughan. Now they’re central to its future, with the new Vaughan Metropolitan Centre rapid transit station, the north terminus of the western section of the Toronto subway’s Line 1. It is also a major transit hub for York Region Transit and the Viva and Zum bus rapid transit services.

Economic growth is occurring in lockstep. Vaughan is now the third largest employment centre in the GTA after Toronto and Mississauga, and the largest contributor to York Region’s economy.

Manufacturing is the star economic performer here, accounting for 22 per cent of total employment, followed by construction, retail and wholesale trade, and transportation and warehousing. United Parcel Service, in fact, operates a signature shipping warehouse near Jane and Steeles.

In the near future, you can add healthcare to the mix of economic and lifestyle benefits, as the City has entered into a first-of-its-kind partnership with Mackenzie Health, York University and ventureLAB.

The City is leading the collaboration to transform an 82-acre parcel of land at Jane Street and Major Mackenzie Drive into the Vaughan Healthcare Centre Precinct. Vaughan, York University, Mackenzie Health and ventureLAB are to study to the best use of lands surrounding the site of the Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital.

The goal of the collaboration is for the Vaughan Healthcare Centre Precinct to leverage resources to bring healthcare, innovation and jobs to this growing community.

“This feasibility study is an illustration of how partnerships can be truly effective when values, principles and beliefs are perfectly aligned,” says Vaughan Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua. “The new state-of-the-art Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will be a catalyst for other uses, like medical offices, labs and research space, healthcare incubators, and education and conference rooms related to healthcare. This is where thought leaders, subject matter experts and innovators will come together to advance a shared vision of healthcare innovation. This transformational collaboration will benefit the healthcare of residents of Vaughan and beyond.”

Lowrise living

Though Vaughan is noteworthy for a lot of condominium development centring around new transit infrastructure, there’s also noteworthy new lowrise communities in the area. This is where buyers come for expansive single-detached homes and large lots.

And once you’ve bought a home in Vaughan, Improve Canada will help you furnish and operate it. Located in Concord and more commonly known as the Vaughan Home Improvement Centre, the complex is a unique offering of about 400 home improvement stores.

Location, location, location

Located in the Regional Municipality of York; bounded by Brampton to the west, King to the north, Markham and Richmond Hill to the east and Toronto to the south; more than 273 sq. kms; population 306,233; includes the communities of Concord, Kleinburg, Maple, Thornhill and Woodbridge.
