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.
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.
Can one summer go by without a mention of Woodstock? Not in my summer it doesn't. I grew up near the site of the Woodstock Music and Art Fair across the river on the Canadian side of the 1960s. In a perfect world, as August 1969 approached, I would have been holding a much prized $18 advance ticket to the Festival.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
Each year on a hot July weekend, the International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration, aka i4C in Niagara-on-the-Lake, hosts over 60 different winemakers from countries all over the world to allow attendees to "tour the world in a glass". It's a gathering of the minds, an opportunity to chat intimately with sommeliers and winemakers about their passion for crafting chardonnay. So what did this year have in store?
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.
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?
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
A citizen's advocacy group has recently called Sophie Grégoire Trudeau out for accepting gifts and loans of clothing from Canadian fashion labels, deeming her "for sale" for daring to wear support for our country's industry on her sleeve. 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.
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.
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."
As a huge tennis fan and a recreational player myself, there is nothing better than watching the matches in person. However, if this is your first time experiencing the magic of the game up close and personal, here are a few key rules of tennis spectator etiquette to know before you head out to the stands.
