It's almost as if that nasty business of the media running roughshod -- downright bullying -- a man suffering from a mental illness never happened. Journalists never hounded him at the rehabilitation facility. Or coerced other patients into revealing intimate details of his treatment. Or wrote features about the clinic founder's own history with the law. Now that he's dealing with a physical disease, on the other hand, it's real. Let's give the man some privacy, our noble journalism vanguards suddenly declare.
Although comparing a broken bone to an amputated limb is not at all analogous, a civilian who loses a limb to a workplace injury is not provided anywhere near the compensation for such a tragedy as would a military member, who in all cases, is fully aware and prepared before deployment of the dangers involved in their jobs.
It hurts to see four NHL teams in ESPN's Top 10, and it hurts that those four teams are the Anaheim Ducks (2nd overall), the Los Angeles Kings (5th), the Tampa Bay Lightning (6th), and the Chicago Blackhawks (10th). So, our biggest rival, and a bunch of rollerblading sunny American parking lots? Just great.
In most households, one person takes responsibility for the household finances. This can work well as long as the person controlling the finances isn't the one with the problem. I think it makes sense that if you're living as a couple and you have joint bank accounts that both partners know what's going on.
There is nothing more frustrating then falling in love with a product in a picture and not being able to find it, yet but this is a recurring theme no matter whether you're shopping for cars, clothes or furniture! The role of a stylist when it comes to furniture is twofold: to help you locate the desired item and ensure you're making a good design decision.
Remember how great you feel after Monday night yoga class? Well imagine feeling that way for an entire week! At a yoga retreat you will eat well (often vegan/vegetarian/raw, and always healthy!), get plenty of time to rest, and have the opportunity to practice yoga at least once a day.
I know, in the internet age, many people think boundaries are passé. This is clear to me when I contemplate people's selfies on social media and their transgressions on Twitter. But I want to reframe the discussion to show that boundaries can be healthy. So let's explore some of the benefits.
While it is legitimate for the players who weren't in Thunder Bay that night or weren't aware that an assault took place to feel a deep sense of injustice, I would like to shed a light on an obvious fact that has been quite irritating since the beginning of the investigation. None of the players in the team have spoken up and publicly condemned what has happened: not one.
Start creating cultures and communities in your workplace that support active living. Doesn't need to be the gym life, it needs to be simple happy movement. Sneak it in, offer programs and ideas that are activity based. Have fun, bring in some puppies or food-based days that people don't even realize is healthy.
We must move beyond being revolted by the beheadings because that is the singular reaction ISIS seeks from those who do not respond by becoming recruits. Young radicals leaving Canada are individuals. We must see them as individuals and not just caricatures.
Why does the world seem to celebrate schmoozers, and what might we be missing when we assume quieter people have nothing worth saying? This persuasive talk from author (and self-proclaimed introvert) Susan Cain will leave you questioning your assumptions about what makes a good leader, and you may see the people in your life a bit differently - yourself included.
It's more likely that corporate tax cuts have led to some income and tax shifting from other tax jurisdictions (such as the Tim Horton's deal) or from personal income, which is taxed at a higher rate. These may have lessened the fall in Canada's corporate tax revenue losses, but not by much.
Tales of government waste make for excellent news headlines. Bev Oda's infamous $16 orange juice probably got more media attention than the $45 billion F35 procurement debacle. Part of the reason is that people understand the value and cost of orange juice. Rather than focusing on waste, analysts and the media should instead focus on getting more value for money from governments.
Irony -- when Canada's Minister of State for Multiculturalism is the victim of a racial slur. Minister Tim Uppal and his family walked into an Edmonton tennis club this past week and overheard a woman express disgust that the Sikh-Canadian family was allowed membership. She went on to suggest that Uppal was probably unemployed.
Today, U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz kicks off his first visit Canada. It's a bit of a head-scratcher that it has taken the secretary this long to pop over to the neighbours, given the amount of trade between our nations. But then again, as of late the cross-border energy conversation has been getting a bit, well, awkward.
I just sat in the car and had a good cry. I was in the parking lot of my 11-year-old daughter's school on her first day of middle school, but I wasn't having the "oh my child is growing up" type of cry. Instead, I was unexpectedly engulfed in fear about her life threatening allergies to peanuts and shellfish.
While Iranian President Rouhani pledged to usher in a new era of human rights for Iranians, he continues to engage in massive repression. What follows is an overview of some of the serious human rights violations in Iran that serve as a litmus test for the authenticity of Rouhani's commitment to human rights for the Iranian people.
I want the government to send me my carbon cheque. And I think most people want theirs too.
You don't need to be a climate scientist to know that extreme weather events are threatening your quality of life and costing you money. Dragging our feet on putting a price on carbon pollution is no longer an option.
There was still the issue of garbage -- all the broken glass, metals, and non-reusable plastics -- to deal with. While contemplating another problem - the lack of a proper fence on the grounds -- Bruneau had a stroke of genius -- why not build a wall out of garbage?
While Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has announced he will not be among the 125 heads of states attending the UN Secretary General's Climate summit, the Council of Canadians and Ottawa residents challenge him to join the caravan from Ottawa heading to New York City's global climate march on Sunday.
Significantly, people who had more power in the office were less likely to report feeling dirty when it came to networking, and engaged in it more often. That effect can make it harder to penetrate existing power structures, because it means those already in power are more comfortable with networking and continue to reinforce and advance their positions.
The values we used to be most proud of as Canadians are slipping away. We used to differentiate ourselves from the States because of our kindness. Our compassion. Our politeness. Our open-mindedness. Socialized medicine. These are progressive values. These are Canadian values. Or so I thought. Our heros have been fighters for the underdog. Tommy Douglas. David Suzuki. Jack Layton. Nellie McClung. Terry Fox.
Look the employer up online. Read their website. See if they are mentioned in articles on other sites or in news stories. Talk to people in your network who may have company or industry knowledge. Think about what the future of the industry is and what the challenges of the job might be.
