Peter Mansbridge @ TRU #8

Be open to new opportunities, explains Peter Mansbridge, host of CBC Television’s The National, during a presentation at TRU on Jan. 19, 2012 as art of the TRU Students’ Union Common Voices speaker series.

His big break came as a baggage handler at the airport in Churchill, Man. One day the local CBC radio station manager heard Mansbridge on the public address system, asked him to join the station. Nineteen at the time, Mansbridge thought is sounded like something interesting to do. He started as a music deejay, before suggesting a local news show. The rest, as they say, is history.

Opportunities for Mansbridge have taken him to covering Vietnamese boat people in the 1970s, a 40-hour-plus shift covering 9/11, and two years ago becoming the first Canadian broadcaster to interview a sitting American president (Barack Obama).

Skerries – County Dublin, Ireland

Skerries Harbour
As far back as the 2nd century there are references to an anchorage at Skerries when Gauls, Picts and Britons who had landed at Lambay put their men ashore at Skerries. By 1315 the harbour was known as the port of Holmpatrick and the Sheriff of Dublin had appointed guards to ensure that no ships departed without the Kings permit. In the 15th century the convent and prior of St. Patrick of Holmpatrick were granted permission to construct a fortified harbour and wall at Skerries in response to concerns about Lambay Island providing shelter for pirates.
Forces sent by Henry VIII to quell the rebellion of Silken Thomas raided Skerries in 1534. Later the harbour passed into the possession of the Earl of Thomond and then on to the Hamiltons of Hacketstown in 1721, who later renovated the pier. The fishing industry reached its peak in Skerries around 1784 when the harbour was one of the premier fishing ports in Ireland.
In 1916 part of an English regiment landed at Skerries to defend the naval radio station at Millfield. During the Second World War the Loughshinny fishing fleet moved to Skerries as their boats were too big for the harbour there and work started on extending the harbour in 1968.

Night OutRestaurants and eating places are aplenty in both these places. One can choose from mouthwatering Gujarati food to mint vada paos and freshly roasted corn on the cob which are a specialty and sold by hawkers all over the twin towns.

Surrounded by many placid lakes like the Pavna Lake, Tungarli Lake and Lonaval Lake – the beautiful natural settings are
popular camping spots where one can just pitch a tent under the open sky and enjoy nature at its best. The hills of Lonavala are ideal for trekking forays. Most of the treks are quite tough with the most popular ones being to Duke”s Nose and Kalra Hills. Make sure you start your trek early as it tends to get dark pretty early in these areas. 
SightsBushy Dam about 6kms from Lonavala is favoured tourist spot. When the water levels of the dam rises the water spills over and manifests into a small waterfall and picnickers like to sit on the steps and feel the cool water gushing over them. One word of caution though, be careful as the
force of water tends to increase suddenly. Tiger”s Leap near INS Shivaji is a curiously shaped cliff – a sheer 650 m drop into the valley. From the top one gets sweeping views of the sylvan landscape around. Other than the scenic beauty of the area, the precincts of Lonavala and Khandala are liberally strewn with places of historical importance. Ryewood is a beautifully laid out garden interspersed with trees that soar to touch the sky it seems. Today the gardens are looked after by the State government but at one time this was where an Englishman Mr Rye lived and hence the name. Visit the Christian Cemetery which was the burial place of the British “?” unfortunately most of the old tombstones have been vandalized now.
