Charles Adler Online
Charles Adler, an outspoken, highly opinionated and engaging broadcaster tells listeners what's really going on by cutting to the heart of issues. Charles uses commentary, panel discussions and interviews with key newsmakers to provide the context to issues that matter to Canadians.
A 32-year radio and television broadcast veteran, Adler started his career when he was only 18 years old, in Montreal. He attended McGill University during the day and produced rockn'roll radio shows in the evening at CKGM. Behind the scenes was not his scene and so he moved on to Calgary in the winter of 1974 and became a rock jock for the venerable CKXL. For the next fifteen years he toured Canada, working in Vancouver, Montreal, Hamilton, Toronto, London, and Winnipeg. Adler worked for several broadcast legends, including CJAD in Montreal, CHUM and CFRB in Toronto. A six year stint as News Director at CKY in Winnipeg gave Adler the motivation to crank it up a notch and get involved in talk radio. It was Calgary that gave Adler his start in talk radio where he hosted HOT TALK on CISS - AM. Adler has a unique brand of straight talk filled with humorous rants and honest observation. In 1992 Adler took his microphone to Tampa, Florida and turned Hot Talk into a nationally syndicated show hitting more than 120 markets in the USA. In 1994, he moved up to Boston, and began hosting Adler on Line, a primetime television show for which he won a Best TV Host for New England Emmy. Following a return to Canada with CFRB in Toronto in 1996, Adler joined CJOB Winnipeg, where his show has one of the highest audience share in North America. Winnipeg is where Adler has spent more than a third of his adult life and he now considers it his adopted hometown. In January 2005, the CORUS RADIO NETWORK began to air Adler on Line the National Edition. In addition to his radio broadcasts, Charles writes newspaper columns for Sun Media.
He makes daily entries on his website, www.charlesadler.com and a does a TV segment each night on Global-Winnipeg, known as Adler On Global, Charles says he doesn't have time to get bored. Citizens of "Adler Nation" love him or loathe him, but rarely accuse him of being boring.

Hi Charles: You have a great showm, and I listen to it as much as I can. In the June 9 issue of Macleans magazine, front page it says: "Life at $200 a Barrel". I goes to say that the worst is yet to come. I"m 68, born in a farmhouse near St Paul Alberta, and I remember growing up in a world before electricity, pavement, running water, easy food etc. If we could go back to that way of life, some would say: "Great! We're moving too fast". But we can't go back to that time, . . because there are too many people on this planet now. Anyone out on a farm in the future would not be out there in a land of trees & virgin soil. They would be sitting ducks for the hungry desperate mobs surrounding them after our oil & gas is too scarse. I taught a section from a special issue of the Canadian Newspaper 20 years ago or so called: "If You Love This Planet." As you could guess, nobody wanted to hear/see it. But as a teacher, I did teach it anyway. Too bad our most important tool we have, education doesn't make get serious about where we are heading. It may be too late anyway to do anything about it. The stock market & growth of our pension funds/savings take priority. Too bad for the next generation.
About "Going Green", . . nothing is going to work unless our planet uses birth control. It will all be for nothing. Like a cancer in a human doesn't know that when it takes over the host it too will die, so too do us humans not know that when we take over our host planet earth, we too will die. Religion has a lot to do with the problem. I'm not that knowledgeable in the bible, but I hear that in the Book of Revelations, we will all go up in a firery end. Those who believe in the bible seem to go along with it and are almost happy studying it. I was hoping us humans were smarter than that. Yours truly, Walter Wychopen

edit Countdown to 2010 Demonstrators
Three years to the day and it will be all down hill, however keeping things under control will be like an uphill slippery slope.
A cause that not everyone agrees with is a target for demonstrators these days. It looked like they were opposing the expense of the event compared to what they thought should be spent on housing for these seemingly homeless types. We’ve all seen how much they appreciate a free roof over their heads and even three free square meals. The house is trashed inside and out before their next welfare cheque. When they show up at a food bank, the tins and food isn’t good enough so they dump it around the corner, not even courteous enough to aim for the garbage can.
I’m grateful we live in a country where I can stand on a street corner or sidewalk, hold a board and even repeat and shout the usual rhetoric of some off the wall poet. If my protesting represents a legal organization and/or a belief, and I'm not thrown in jail for doing so becasue I'm doing with the law on my side, then I'll continuing being proud of where I live.
When I saw the two characters barge onto the stage and yank the mikes from the speaker and their stands, I thought, who needs to go to any other country, which I will not name here, and see such hooliganism being acted out live before our eyes. In a few seconds it looked like mayhem would break out, instead my defensive attitude was confirmed by their utter criminal waste of a reason to celebrate the anticipation of what will be a real reason to stand up and cheer and host athletes from our country and more than a hundred others.
I shouldn’t be too hard on them though. They did give the security program a dry-run, I give them that much credit. It didn’t even cost an extra chunk of money to test the police and how they would respond. I see they’ve learned a lesson with not going overboard on the pepper spray. They may have used some but it wasn’t obvious. Wouldn’t a jail cell with two weeks of Olympics on a TV be appropriate punishment for these felons?
I hope we will learn some lessons from what we saw at this occasion. The range of possibilities is endless but it’s not a new thing to anticipate the worst from the human race. The Olympics is at the other end of the spectrum and I hope the athletes will demonstrate those possibilities and be recognized for their accomplishments.
I would demonstrate on their behalf but they deserve the gold. Rudy Hiebert Abbotsford www.lubedealer.com/hiebert

I also had a situation where I had parked in the alley of any older ladies house to pick up my children from school, only to be harassed by this European lady about my parking in the alley. She pointed her "no parking" sign on her fence (which she had no authority to post), and then proceeded to blockaide my vehicle when I chose to leave. The police arrived at my house that evening, I reviewed the situation with him. He said that I could charge her with blockaiding my vehicle (a Strike Law). However, he discouraged me from this as he felt that she had an European (sorry!) temper and recommended that I just apologize to her. I was mortified...however, I did apologize to her...sometimes you just have to roll over and play dead!! You can't argue with RAGE!!! and you certainly don't argue with someone with a gun in their hand...that unfortunately, is the nature of our new society!! Liz S.

Search Engine Friendliness
A few simple technical fixes can make any site show up better in
The title of a web page appears in search results as the link to that page. Learn more ...
The title of a web page appears as a clickable link in search results and bookmarks. A descriptive, compelling home page title with relevant keywords can increase the number of people visiting the site.
Search engines view the text of the title tag as a strong indication of what the page is about. Accurate keywords in the title tag can help the page rank better in search results.
A title tag should have fewer than 70 characters, including spaces. Major search engines won't display more than that.
The title tag of your home page (and any other page on your site) should not contain the site’s domain name or URL. These will appear near the title in search results, so use your 70 characters to tell people what the page is about. The title tag should not contain any HTML, because it will be displayed incorrectly or not at all.
- Good: This web page has a title tag.
- Warning: The title tag should not include the website’s domain name.
- Warning: The title uses the same text as the H1 heading on this page. They should be different.
- Problem: The title has fewer than three words. You may not be telling people and search engines enough about this page.
- The title of this site's home page:
The H1 heading is an important sentence or phrase on a web page that quickly and clearly tells people and search engines what they can expect to find there. Learn more ...
Just one H1
In most cases, a web page should have just one H1 heading. Using multiple H1 headings is okay if that is a logical way to organize the page, but they should be used sparingly. That’s because search engines can view multiple H1 headings as an attempt to signal that all the content on a page is equally important, a tactic that’s seen as an attempt to game the search engine algorithms.
Search engines look for an H1 heading to determine what a page is about. Human visitors do, too.
Content and placement
The H1 heading appears on the web page itself, unlike the page title, which people will see mostly in search results.
The H1 tag (which contains the H1 heading) is usually listed first among the other heading tags for a page. None of the major search engines, however, will penalize a site for listing H2 through H6 tags ahead of the H1 tag.
- Good: This page has one H1 heading.
- Warning: The H1 heading uses the same text as the title of this page. They should be different.

Your website's robots.txt file can tell search engines to ignore parts of your site. Learn more ...
Website owners usually use robots.txt to let search engines know which pages or sections of their site shouldn't be indexed for example, web contact forms, print versions of web pages and other content that's duplicated elsewhere on the site. Robots.txt can also be used to request that specific robots not index a site. For more information, read How To Use Robots.txt.
Search engine robots
You'll need to know the names of specific search engine robots - or "bots" – if you’re going to exclude any or all of them from any part of your site.
- Google’s bot is called Googlebot. Google is the world’s largest search engine, and is where many people discover new websites.
- Bing’s bot is called msnbot. Bing also provides search results to people using Yahoo to search the Web. Together, Bing and Yahoo are the second largest search resource, after Google.
- Baidu’s bot is called Baiduspider. Baidu is a major search engine in China, and the number of people using it is increasing rapidly.
- AboutUs.org’s bot is called AboutUsBot. To create a Site Report, AboutUs uses crawling technology that’s similar to what search engines use.
- Good: This website’s robots.txt file is not blocking major search engines from crawling its pages. Your website can appear in any engine’s search results.
This website can live at www.CharlesAdler.com or CharlesAdler.com. It's best for your site's visibility to live at just one URL, or web address. You'll want to create a 301 redirect to the URL you choose from the other URL. Learn more ...
Choose one or the other
If the same web page exists at two different URLs, people can choose to link to one or the other. Links from other sites to your website are valuable — they tell search engines that your site is important to people. By splitting valuable links between two identical pages, you're diluting the power of those links to help a page rank higher in search results.
