Once Windows 10 becomes the hit Microsoft hopes it will be, Microsoft will have more control over the price it charges. Right now, price may be an important validator, and an upgrade price of $0 does not validate much.
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.

Despite the cool rhetoric from the Ontario Professional Fire Fighter's Association (OPFFA), this proposal for members to prove "symptom relief" medications is an obvious attempt by the association to defend the jobs of its members by edging in on the work of paramedics. The animosity that is building between Fire and EMS places job security ahead of patient safety.
Transparency is one of those words that is constantly thrown around in the business world. Many companies make claims of an increased commitment to transparency, but approach these promises under the simplest definition: openness and honesty in business practice.
