Talking about sexual and reproductive health with students is always a little bit awkward, even in the best of situations! Having these discussions within a culture that often considers anything related to reproductive health to be taboo can be particularly challenging -- and incredibly important. In rural Tanzania, such topics are rarely discussed. The national curriculum includes the topics of menstruation and reproductive health, but these topics are frequently rushed through, or skipped altogether, by uncomfortable teachers in underfunded, overcrowded schools.
Nobody would argue that each of us are deserving of happiness. Most parents, despite layering on other expectations including self-sufficiency, want their children to be happy. But does happiness just happen or is it, indeed a pursuit?
When I'm helping clients set goals for their careers, one of the most important questions I ask them is "why?". Why are they setting that particular goal? That simple question helps them determine whether the goal is aligned with what they actually want.
It's time to end this perverse nonsense, to put CBC television back on the rails producing objectively high-quality programs to serve audiences both as citizens and consumers, enriching rather than impoverishing their lives.
The Dakhká Khwáan Dancers travelled 5,000 kilometres from Whitehorse to perform onstage at the Aboriginal Pavilion, as part of the 17-day Indigenous arts, culture and sports festival that ran parallel to the Pan Am Games.
There are some hidden dangers you need to know about if weight gain is a concern, if you want to take advantage of summer activities to slim down or if you have health concerns that need to be kept in check. Here are four summer foods, disguised as healthy choices, that may actually be causing you to gain weight.
Liberal leader Justin Trudeau is right to say no to any coalition talks with the NDP. It's a con game by the NDP and one that would make voters punish the Liberals. For one thing, the Liberals and the NDP are very different on issues like the Sherbrooke Declaration and the Senate. Then there's the question who'll lead and for how long.
There is constant food prep for each child you have with celiac or allergies; three meals a day plus snacks seven days a week, 365 days a year. At first I was scrambling trying to figure out what to feed my kids until I learned to manage it all with these six simple time-saving ways to prepare meals and snacks. Today this is my gift to you!
I love my friends. Most are kind, two are funny. Three are generous, and another is shrewd. But my BFF? That friend would be my dividends. My proposition to you is that you start to invest. And high-quality dividend stocks with a track record of increasing their dividend payouts are a fantastic place to start.
The legacy debate this week is now about whether the Pan Am Games will lead Toronto to an Olympic bid. The reality is it doesn't matter. Toronto has already won by hosting a pan-American event that has taught us we can make this city any way we choose.
In management's view, Rex (one and two) is in such complete control of his perceptions and biases that he can switch from one personality to the other while walking from a radio studio on the third floor of the Broadcast Centre in Toronto to a TV studio on the fifth or to his kitchen to write a column for the National Post. That is obviously impossible, although convenient wishful thinking for CBC executives stuck in a pickle of their own making.
San Antonio is known as a city with friendly people and a beautiful River Walk, but beyond the downtown core one of the oldest neighbourhoods is being revitalized and becoming the hottest neighborhood for shopping and eating in the city.
When I was a banker we had this tool to show you how much you'd pay in interest over the amortization. When you look at the bottom of the chart I always liked to point out that you basically pay the same amount in interest as you took out on a mortgage at an average mortgage rate.
Tapping into workplaces across the country would allow a vast and varied audience to be reached. That audience would include people of different ages, education and culture. Workplace programs also would allow individuals to receive valuable information in a convenient manner.
My clock is ticking. Time is close. Come judgment day, I dread becoming another statistic languishing behind bars, referred to by a hashtag on Twitter knowing that the outcome of the trial may have nothing to do with evidence but merely based on the political score settling between Qatar and Egypt.
With the unlucky loonie continuing to drop, Canadians are pinching their pennies and watching their savings. According to a recent survey from digital offers site RetailMeNot.ca, 73 per cent of Canadians are worried about the nation's economy. However, a little savvy spending will help to satisfy needs and wants.
This Netflix cleanse was obviously not on purpose and I don't advocate it for everyone. But by forcing myself to be alone and engage in activities that I like such as organizing and chatting on the phone I was allowing myself to be with my thoughts and be present in the moment. It was kind of awesome.
It may seem counter-intuitive to advise someone to turn down a job -- especially when the market in much of the country remains soft and positions can be hard to come by -- but there are times when it's really better just to walk away.
A sensitivity for the environment was a reason the Chateau Whistler launched a new product this summer, the Clubhouse Dinner and Nature Tour. The idea is for couples and families to learn about the flora, fauna and wildlife occupying the Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed course that was opened in 1993.
In a landmark legal filing, Jesse Razaqpur and Charles Benoit, owners of the Toronto Distillery Company, have sued the LCBO over what they claim is the unfair practice of enforcing distillers to sell their product for the same price as at LCBO retail stores and then pay the same markup amount in tax to the LCBO.
Reflecting back, given the seriousness of the crisis as it is now being described internationally, it is difficult to understand how Toronto's protests and climate talks were allowed to be so meaningless. These weaknesses, plus deplorable reporting by mainstream media, are responsible for millions of Canadians being poorly informed and not taking the threat of potentially disastrous climate change seriously.
My brother died in a car crash when he was 18 and my family never really recovered from it. I can't begin to imagine the Prescott family's pain. We live in a world that makes it very, very difficult to be trans.
