Great news for a famous Cape Bretoner!

Allister MacGillivrayAllister MacGillivray  will be Invested into the Order of Canada on December 13, 2013. The Office of the Secretary to the Governor General is pleased to announce that a “live” webcast of the Order of Canada Investiture ceremony will be available on December 13, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. (Eastern standard time). Please tune in at www.gg.ca,

At 12 noon on December 14 (2013), the lilting strains of “Away From The Roll Of The Sea”, penned by Allister MacGillivray back in the 70’s, will resound from The Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in our nation’s capital. The official carilloneur, Andrea McCrady, has offered to perform the song on the clock tower’s massive 53-bell, multi-tonne mechanism in honour of Allister’s visit to Ottawa to receive the Order Of Canada.

As an added bonus, the MacGillivray family has been invited to sit with Dr. McCrady in the belfry during her performance of the work.

One proud Caper to another… Good on ya Allister!!

About Allister MacGillivray:

Allister MacGillivrayAllister MacGillivray: renowned songwriter, guitarist, record producer, folklorist and author from the Island of Cape Breton in the province of Nova Scotia, in eastern Canada. He was born and raised in the coal-mining/fishing town of Glace Bay. His grandparents on the MacGillivray side were Gaelic-speaking, and various cousins played violin, guitar or accordion at weekly family-music-sessions — before the intrusion of television.

Following graduation from St. F.X U. in Antigonish, he toured two years with a trio headed by Cape Breton folksinger John Allan Cameron. Besides its own dedicated following, the group opened for Anne Murray and The Irish Rovers, bringing the house down in a 1970 appearance at “The Grand Ole Opry” in Nashville, Tennessee.

On “Ceilidh”, Cameron’s Canadian national television program, Allister served as guitarist and musical director.

During the mid seventies, Allister performed as a full-time guitarist with the Irish/Newfoundland group Ryan’s Fancy, which toured Canada and Ireland.

He recorded and co-produced several albums with this trio, and again was musical director on both regional and national television programs.

At this point his songwriting career began to blossom. Ryan’s Fancy recorded Allister’s “Sea People”, “Tie Me Down” and “Coal Town Road”, and the group featured “Song For The Mira” during many of their live performances.

A particular highlight of Allister’s performing career was accompanying Irish superstars Tommy Makem & Liam Clancy, in television series and several extended tours of the eastern United States and Canada.

Allister left “the road” around 1980, choosing to settle in rural Cape Breton to concentrate on an eclectic career of songwriting, composing and documenting the Cape Breton experience.

During the last several years, Allister has worked as researcher and artistic director on a series of short films on the Cape Breton style of traditional Scottish fiddling (see the Highland Legacy DVD), and continued his intuitive songwriting.

Among the recent honours he received:

  1. •The province of Nova Scotia “for the gift of music and promoting Celtic culture”
  2. •The Cape Breton Tourist Association “for writing beautiful songs which promote the traditions, the culture and the heritage of Cape Breton”.
  3. •Official Bard of Clan MacGillivray, Canada
  4. •Honorary Doctorate of Letters from The University College of Cape Breton, May 1997

 

Today, Allister MacGillivray lives and works on Cape Breton Island with his wife, Beverly, and two children (Ciarán & Fiona of the Celtic band, The Cottars).

 

So How Big Is The Web?

cape breton web design,SEO,Social Marketing,Web Design Comments Off on So How Big Is The Web?

Well…there are more than 150 billion searchable indexed web pages on the Internet!

That’s right! Check out some of the new infographic stats from Bloxx that shares more on just how big the Web has become.

Some of our favorite highlights include: 

– If you downloaded every bit of Web content from your computer, it would take 11 trillion years.

– If you packed 450 2-terabyte storage drives into a single 8’ x 10’ room, you’d need 1,000 drive-packed rooms to equal the estimated “Exabyte” of data on the Web

– The amount of data traveling over the Internet in just three minutes is the digital equivalent of every motion picture ever made in the last 120 years.

“Our ‘Big Web’ infographic shows the dramatic size, and threat, of accessing the more than 700* million Web sites offering some trillion terabytes of data,” said Charles Sweeney, CEO of Bloxx, a Web content filtering and email security company. “Next generation real-time Web content filters that analyze and categorize the content of web pages at the point-of-request, are the only way to stay ahead of the avalanche of new, and often malicious, sites created every day.”

*reference material from Website Magazine

 

Recent stats from Worldwidewebsize.com show the following information:

The Indexed Web contains at least 2.96 billion pages (Wednesday, 06 November, 2013).
The Dutch Indexed Web contains at least 214.08 million pages (Wednesday, 06 November, 2013)

How is the size of the World Wide Web (The Internet) estimated?

The estimated minimal size of the indexed World Wide Web is based on the estimations of the numbers of pages indexed by Google, Bing, Yahoo Search. From the sum of these estimations, an estimated overlap between these search engines is subtracted. The overlap is an overestimation; hence, the total estimated size of the indexed World Wide Web is an underestimation.

Since the overlap is subtracted in sequence, starting from one of the four search engines, several orderings (and total estimations) are possible. We present two total estimates, one starting with Bing (BG) and one starting with Google (GB). The figure reported at the top of the page refers to the GB estimation.

So just how fast is the internet growing then?

There are a few governing bodies and there is no real central control system for the Internet. No one really knows with 100% certainty exactly how many websites exist or just how many new websites are set up each day.

However, a few organizations do make it their business to keep an eye on the domain names that make up the Internet as the web continues to grow. Although their data isn’t infallible, it does give us a pretty good idea of the size and growth of the web.

This trend is true worldwide especially in Canada where there are now many more local brands and companies starting up each day. If you are looking to get a website built by a professional in Canada look no further than Cape Breton Web Design. We’d be happy to help with your Cape Breton Website needs.
