What if we looked at the whole concept of benefits in a different way. Who actually benefits when we support students whose brains work differently? We are going to need out-of-the-box kinds of thinking that students with special needs do naturally, all the time. We need special solutions to the special challenges we all face.
A boss from hell can get you to do tasks that lower your self-esteem and make you their professional slave for as long as you allow it. For example, I once went on a business trip with a new boss to call on clients where I ended up being tasked with chatting up women for him.
The industry needs productive, safe, and enabling parameters to work within, and British Columbians deserve to rest assured that our business leaders and elected representatives are engineering those limits properly -- with a foundation much stronger than that of the Mount Polley tailings pond.
I attended five of B.C.'s public schools. And they were all choice programs. Unique programs. Schools within the public education system that provided me with experiences and opportunities that people often think are relegated to the private system. But here's the thing: they're not.
It seems everywhere you look these days, there are more types of mascaras and shapes of wands than ever before. I recently spoke with Denee Noel, cosmetics sales manager at Holt Renfrew Vancouver to find out the best mascara wands for different lashes.
Be kind to yourself -- don't hold yourself to ridiculous standards. Try not to stress about the little things that no one will remember anyway. Get more rest. Go for walks. Exercise. Recharge. And although it might be unreasonable to ask that you leave your work troubles at your desk, try not to become a slave to your work.
The risk is, we don't know when Facebook, or any app, actually uses these permissions, and I don't think we want to find out after-the-fact that it's been recording me since I installed it, just to sell to advertisers. So until Google improves the Android architecture by allowing us more control over what permissions an app can access at any given time, it comes down to trust.
Unlike the "Prince of Pot," I don't use marijuana. I never have, and probably never will, even if it were to become legal for recreational use. Nevertheless, I have been a staunch admirer of Marc's ever since I first met him. While Marc Emery didn't do this single-handedly, there is no question that he is at least partly responsible for the fact that hundreds of thousands of people across North America now have legal access to a medication that helps relieve their pain and epileptic seizures. Margaret Wente said that Marc's no hero, but I disagree.
"I say we just gather parents to teach students in the schools this September, until an agreement can be reached!" says one of the dads. I kick off my sandals and light my hair on fire.
Go ahead and post that suicide hotline number. I've used it and I'll continue to use it. But even better, recognize that this darkness is a monster that -- even with all the help and resources and puppy cuddles -- is lonely and demoralizing and confusing and exhausting to fight. And please recognize all of the work we do to stay alive.
Taxpayers deserve to know why these projects are going over budget, why they are failing, and precisely what government plans to do about it.
With all the rapid change around medical cannabis and talk about legalization efforts, it's important to note that these changes are not without challenge: women's disproportionate responsibility for dependent children intensifies the risk associated with smoking cannabis and being known as a cannabis user.
It's one thing to seek to learn from a disaster and it's another thing to incite emotional responses to promote hasty, unwise public policy actions. Despite the fact that virtually nothing was known about the cause of the Mount Polley leak, only two days after the spill, the David Suzuki Foundation had set up an automatic petition portal on their website calling on the province to institute a moratorium on new mine approvals, a suggestion that would imperil a substantial part of B.C.'s economy.
Funny people aren't supposed to take their own lives. But then again, neither are fathers or mothers or first responders or any of the other host of people we outwardly see as having too much to live for. The way things appear to others is never the whole picture. Those who struggle with depression are not so easily defined by only the characteristics everyone else sees.
Nearly half of Imperial Metal's donations were made after Christy Clark was sworn in as premier, while $45,720 of Mount Polley's donations came via six separate cheques issued in one week alone in March 2013. Guess bank charges weren't an issue for the company.
