Episode 4 Recap
From the Pit Start in Hong Kong, eight teams made their way to the gambling capital of the world, Macau, China, and raced to the ancient A-Ma Temple before heading to the world's highest tower bungee jump (233 metres/764 feet) at Macau Tower. Once back on the ground, teams chose one of two Detours, collecting stamps in the maze of Macau's streets or learning a traditional Macanese dance. From the Detours teams had to learn how to correctly deal one round of the complicated Fan Tan gambling game, before heading to the Pit Stop under the blinking lights of Macau's casinos.
Natalie and Meaghan showed no signs of slowing down as they collected their fourth win a row, earning them two round trip tickets in Premium Economy from Air Canada to Tokyo, plus $3,000 on their Scotiabank Gold American Express Card.
Tonight's episode will encore this week on TSN (Thursday, July 31 at 12 a.m. ET/ 9 p.m. PT and Friday, Aug. 1 at 2 p.m. ET/ 11 a.m. PT), TSN 2 (Thursday, July 31 at 7 p.m. ET/ 4 p.m. PT), and CTV and CTV GO (Saturday, Aug. 2 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and Sunday, Aug. 3 at 5 p.m. ET/PT - and is also now available on demand at CTV GO.

THE AMAZING RACE CANADA returns home as teams fly to the mighty Yukon (Tuesday, Aug. 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO).

- Pierre and Michel - Twin Brothers, Montreal
- Alain and Audrey - Dating, Montreal
- Mickey and Pete - Best Friends, Muskoka, Ont.

Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...
