Millennials are proving that they don't need intense supervision as previously assumed. In reality, you may find that millennials are teaching older generations a thing or two about enhancing a business.
That's right, Hamilton, Ont. - or, specifically, the Hamilton-Burlington real estate district - not Vancouver or Toronto. Regional markets in proximity to Canada's highest-price cities continue to experience steady interest from local move-up buyers and buyers who are looking to find a balance between affordability and square footage.
Elimination of poverty would have some very obvious and immediate benefits, but a Universal Basic Income would also have some more subtle - and yet, in my mind, very exciting - possible benefits: a universal basic income could enable the greatest unleashing of human potential ever seen.
Imagine how you would feel if the government installed cameras in your home that recorded everything you did, then gave police the power to review the footage without a warrant, whenever they want. If that sounds to you like a gross violation of your privacy, you should probably be aware that the federal Liberals are contemplating pretty much exactly that for the digital world.
There are too many Christmases where the shine was dulled by illness. Several times, Christmas Day got completely postponed, and everyone stayed home to avoid more cross-contamination! So, what you do to get through the next few weeks if an unplanned bug shows up to mess up your plans?
As a privacy and security expert, I concluded that the MyDemocracy survey is not just ineffective in its stated political objectives, it's literally giving up the privacy of Canadians in real time. This is really dangerous, scary when you realize that this issue applies to all of Public Safety's websites I have tested.
A major element towards success is accountability -- making sure governments and the private sector play their part. Asia Pulp &Paper is advocating "putting a price on nature." This will encourage private sector involvement. Businesses need to be economically invested in the survival and protection of our landscapes.
British Columbians have made extraordinary adjustments in their outlook in the last several decades. When I was a boy and a young man there was always another valley to log, another run of fish, more farmland around the corner, more rivers to dam or even reverse. This was considered our birthright. But though it took us a long time to realize it, we saw that we no longer had those luxuries.
With all the negative attention around internships, companies may be tempted to shy away from the idea, but this is a poor business decision. The investment you make in internship programs can provide a tremendous return for the company and the student, so it should not be overlooked.
In Canada, women remain underrepresented in the STEM fields, making up 22 per cent of the STEM workforce. Women earn nearly half of the bachelor's degrees in science but only a third of the PhDs. They are also underpaid, with a 7.5 per cent wage gap.
In what shall forever be known as Electricity Week, the Alberta government managed to flip the switch on five massive changes to the province's electricity system. Alberta's electricity market was broken. Now the Alberta government has fixed it.
From the time we enter high school we are told that this type of talk is harmless, good-natured joking and if we react negatively, we must lack a sense of humour. What we fail to mention is that locker room talk leads to groping and unwanted sexual advances because when you dehumanize people in conversation, their needs no longer count. Once you have obscenely torn a woman apart with bro-talk, an insidious web of disrespect is woven. It becomes difficult to promote her and even more difficult to work for her. In short, it limits her opportunities.
Email, like a bag of chips, is addictive. Even with the most discipline, you will break. Having email on your phone is the equivalent to walking around with an open bag of chips with you. All the time. It doesn't sound very healthy, does it?
