I am not saying that we should not strive to be the very best people and professionals we can be. This is not a call to "lean out." By all means, let's strive to be amazing, but let's also aspire to be more gentle with ourselves and with others.
Over a year ago, Canada lifted a 30-year-old prohibition on gay men donating blood. However, Canada Blood Services still includes a ban on blood donations from any man who has had sex with another man in the past five years. That is why the Young Liberals of Canada want a policy that is based on evidence, because no single, loosely defined group should be discriminated against based on generalized statistics, perceptions or prejudices. A blanket ban on sexually active MSM is not merely discriminatory; it's unsafe.
Lately the news is filled with stories about a scary new virus that is making many kids across the United States and Canada unwell. It is called Enterovirus-68 or EV-68.

It all started simply enough. I registered "Doug Ford" on Ello in jest. And then decided to start adding some friends. At which point, the fun began. I left the office with hundreds of email notifications from Ello, dozens of tweets and even an article in the Toronto Standard! Which is when things turned dark. Very dark. My 24 hours of being Doug Ford taught me 7 key things.

Studies have shown that inadequate follow-up care after emergency room visits is common, with up to 30 per cent of patients with chronic illnesses not seeing a doctor within 30 days after they've been sent home from the ER. Why? In part, it's because fewer than one in three primary care physicians in Canada report being notified when their patients visit an emergency department.
If it seems too soon or too awkward or too inappropriate to discuss marriage or a long-term, serious commitment to each other, then it's too soon, too awkward and too inappropriate for you to uproot your life and move to a new city for love.
A once drab environment is suddenly charged with the energy of a colour. Below are three quick colour design tips to help you create the desired results for your room or space.
The question whether obesity is solely caused by diet and lifestyle choices or whether a person's genetic make-up plays a role as well has long been debated among scientists without producing conclusive answers.

Unlike what movies, friends and TV's "Say Yes To The Dress" say, I never thought about my "dream" wedding when I was a girl. I didn't dream about my "perfect" wedding dress. So when my boyfriend proposed to me in August, I instantly dreaded the idea of planning a wedding and saying "yes" to the dress.
If this bothers you -- as it should -- look. Think. Research. Donate if you can. Spread the word. Share. I don't want any other parent to know firsthand what pediatric cancer looks like.
In my first marriage, which lasted 18 years, I had a hard time being seen naked. Especially in my child-bearing years, when my only purpose was to serve my children, to be their sustenance. My sexuality went right out the window.

Despite my efforts in making sure that students were updated about their grades, many times they really didn't see a connection in their mastery of the work and their final grades. Eventually after reviewing all of the student records and in all of that data (attendance, test scores, etc.) I realized the real issue.

Dear Baby, Here are my promises to you, our family, and myself at this bittersweet junction in our story. As the clock ticks away the moments until you arrive, I have committed to stop and savor every last drop of this pregnancy.
Whatever the reasons for this epidemic, there are a few signs of hope. Like the common cold and flu, infection is entirely preventable by washing the hands with soap and water as well as regularly disinfecting surfaces. Should an infection occur, there is still only a small chance it could get worse;
In an age when superstars think they're bigger than the team, and the ownership, Jeter knew
otherwise. Even a 14-time all-star was still an employee, and George Steinbrenner, until he
passed away in 2010, was the boss. Jeter revered the boss, but also managed to connect him

filmed in a conga line at a Manhattan night club.
