This is not complicated, Leo, so keep up. Do you and your entourage really need an over-sized, gas-guzzling and polluting SUV to get you to your over-sized, jet-fuel-guzzling and polluting chopper to get you to your over-sized, jet-fuel-guzzling and polluting private jet? Not really. You know how I know that?
In many respects, the Council of Canadian Innovators is failing to understand the new dynamics of today's information economy. Indeed, individuals cannot be treated as replaceable widgets. Instead, they must be treated as individual contributors who have the capacity to individually contribute to innovation and growth within an organization.
When I thought about wedding planning, I imagined myself curled up on the couch with girlfriends, sipping a glass of wine and flipping through bridal magazines. While there were definitely days like this, there is so much more to wedding planning than I could have imagined!
Exercise. It may seem like the opposite of what you should do if you have cancer and are suffering from pain, nausea or cancer-related fatigue. However, evidence-based research shows that people living with cancer can and should keep exercising or add some physical activity into their lives.
Long before we had conventional medicine and pharmaceuticals, we had herbs. In fact, active ingredients in pharmaceutical drugs are derived from the volatile oils in many herbs. Herbs can boost the taste of food without adding extra calories and sodium, sure, but herbs can also make the food that we eat healthier.
Flashing a trademark grin, the premier announced a major tax increase. There's no tax quite as popular as a tax on someone else. But will the people still be on board once the bills come in for collecting the Vancouver vacancy tax, or when the foreign investment tax has to morph to catch the money coming into the country?
Stephen Harper emerged in May from his self-imposed obscurity to say goodbye. I say good riddance. For months, Harper spottings became a running joke on Parliament Hill as politicians, staff and reporters wondered what he was up to. It now looks like he was doing what he always did -- meeting in private to cook up secret plans for the future.
On the TV news and in newspapers, we have seen that a pipeline, property of Husky Oil, has spilled more than 200,000 litres of petroleum in the North Saskatchewan River. The oil slick is rapidly moving downstream, polluting the river bottom as well as the drinking water of wildlife, livestock and the citizens living in its watershed.
We now know that concussion's effects are cumulative and that repeated head trauma effects can take two generations to show up. Doesn't that make you want to take a second look at extreme sports? Because, let's face it: extreme sports are a growing phenomenon on the Olympic and international stage.
Police accountability has never been a strength on the federal, provincial and local levels. We are still lacking independent civil and independent bodies that would investigate the actions of law enforcement when such tragic incidents happen.
Society doesn't just pressure Aniston, this is the case for millennial women, specifically South Asian millennial women, like myself. A handful of my female friends and I fit into the following category: we're in our 30s, independent, outgoing, have careers, side interests and side hustles, but we can't seem to find a life partner that will truly be our ride or die.
I understand talking about your finances may be a difficult topic for some, but if you think about the bigger picture -- you are building the early foundation of a strong marriage. You may even be saving your marriage from divorce.
If you think of earth as a giant and complicated neighbourhood of neighbourhoods, it might be said that the Trumpification we are now witnessing in the States doesn't really have anything to do with Trump himself. He is not the cause. He is the opportunistic benefactor. Let's call him dystopia Donald. He's relatively new to this area. But he's still affecting our neighbours to the south, and we have a duty to at least have a chat with them.
Healthy foods shouldn't be complicated and knowing how to prepare the plethora of nutritious grains, organic produce, and essential fats you just purchased at the grocery store can be the difference between wanting to eat better and actually doing it.
Here's a secret nobody tells you about having a baby: There's a lot of downtime. During the early days, weeks or even months of your maternity leave, you'll be confined to your bed or couch -- unable to move while you're baby sleeps upwards of 18 hours a day or while you nurse him every two hours for 30-40 minutes at a time. A lot of time is spent staring at your baby. Trust me, I've been there -- twice. It's nice to break up the monotony of those long, lonely days with some great TV shows.
Architecture plays a key role in social cohesion, and the solution of rebuilding war-torn areas like Syria using the principles of inclusiveness exemplifies the unique problem-solving our industry can offer when more voices, female and otherwise, are added to the conversation.
Partnering with men and boys involves helping them develop a healthy, non-violent, and respectful outlook towards themselves and their relationships, and models of manliness where they are equals amongst their peers. Engaging boys and adolescents in the process at all levels is also key to empowering a generation of young people with the capacity to claim their own rights and respect those of everyone around them.
I realized that while I was willing to take feedback on my weaknesses, I was not willing to listen to feedback on my perceived strengths. Only upon reflection, I was able to shift my attitude and seek and accept feedback on areas I was expert at. I had to get rid of the arrogant self-talk of "I was the best at this."
In Alberta, many of the oil patch companies have taken full advantage of this right by testing oil workers (and even contractors) for drugs such as cocaine and marijuana on a regular basis. All of this begs the question: why do employers require drug and alcohol testing in the first place?
Hermeneutical gymnastics that equate LGBT Muslims with Lot's people and which downplay the legitimate human need for affection, intimacy and companionship as mere urges and whims are instigated by a deep-rooted heterosexism. The same prejudice allows placing the prohibition of homosexuality on par with the six articles of faith and the five pillars of Islam.
It may surprise you to learn that the number one cause of limb amputations in Canada is diabetes. Fifteen per cent of diabetics will develop a leg or foot ulcer during their lifetime. Most of the time, the amputation will be of a leg, leaving a person permanently disabled.
I can see how gifts and loans can make for some bad optics, even if the role of prime minister's wife has little real political oomph behind it. However, in a world where few powerful individuals direct their influence toward social good like Grégoire Trudeau does, Democracy Watch's threadbare argument seems to be more about populist-pleasing celebrity shaming than hypothetical conflicts of interests.
The obvious question one may consider is why would someone do this? Is it an attempt to seem well-travelled? Sophisticated? Cultured? If so it could well be in vain as I can tell you that there are many people with English accents who are not well-travelled, sophisticated or cultured
