There have been complaints about the three Ottawa doctors who won't prescribe the birth control pill. They don't prescribe it partly out of religious conviction, but also because they believe it's bad medicine. Research shows plenty of evidence against the pill. If conscience is overturned and doctors who disagree are forced to prescribe it, this will ironically mean the provision of inferior care. Using hearts and minds together is what conscience protection allows for. Does anyone actually want anything less in their doctor?
Have the talk before you hook-up (or once you've peed right after) and set the lay of land. You both know what this is. Games are meant to be played with rope and whipped cream, not with each other's emotions. If you're feeling compromised about a situation have the courtesy to put it out there and mutual respect to problem-solve together.
Try not to borrow from your neighbour. If you do use one of the tools from the garage next door, take it back as soon as you have completed your task. You broke it? Say it, apologize and replace it. You cannot afford to buy another? You should not have borrowed it in the first place.
A new study published in the journal Neurology suggests that a simple test measuring how fast people walk and whether they have cognitive complaints can predict later problems with dementia. The developed assesment will potentially allow for many more people to know whether they are at risk without complex testing.
I ordered a salad. It was only 410 calories. The people behind me giggled when I placed my order. Maybe they were laughing about something else. I always heard laughter when I went places. I believe a lot of it was because of me.
'I could never let my hair go gray,' a friend said to me. 'I mean, yours looks OK, but my mother would just die if I let my hair go like that.'
So, you've come to grips with the fact that the only workouts you plan on getting are the continuous long treks up the stairs to refill your pitcher of sangria. But before you get too comfortable with this soothing summer schedule, what if you could bring workout equipment to the cottage that will increase exercise intensity, reduce total time AND won't even take up space in your suitcase?
YouTube stars Lilly Singh and Kanwer Singh, better known as Superwoman and Humble the Poet sit down with Raji Aujla to talk about the process of creating their viral music video, #Leh.
Laugh out loud funny, The Boss Baby is a charming board book deserving a place in baby's first library. This story will answer the question of who in the family is truly in charge once the new baby arrives on the scene. New parents will especially enjoy this one, as it's sure to bring on some smiles and chuckles.
No doubt some of these ingredients may sound a bit weird (cottage cheese, tofu, black beans?!) but blended together, they just become part of the mix. Take a look at the recipes below for inspiration for these unique ingredients and remember, recipes are just a guide!
Living abroad is one thing -- planning a wedding from abroad is a whole other story. A very complicated, internet driven, blog obsessed story that involves checking your email 24/7 and a secret love affair with Pinterest. So from one traveller/amateur bride-to-be to another, here are my "Five Great Expectations" leading up to your big day.
When women take note of sexism during their daily lives -- for example, talking openly about street harassment or workplace bias -- and name it for what it is, they stop accepting it as "normal."
I don't want her blue eyes the way her husband must want them before they closed each night. I don't want her body, and not just because it's gone. It was never mine to covet in the first place, just like her life.
Now that my daughter is 4, I worry about how to raise an exuberant girl to be true to herself and resilient as she confronts the harried perfectionism and success-driven ethos of our culture. Sound familiar? Here are a few things I try to keep in mind on my own parenting journey.
I once cared deeply about these things. But as I've gotten older and "wiser" (debatable), I've realized they just don't matter to me.
Must we spend our lives in abject misery about our god-given design flaws?I say NO. I am fat, fit and fabulous! And I have spent far too much time trying to be something that I was never intended to be -- thin.
The glorification of the thin body is not only found in the media, but among even some of my nutrition colleagues who promote being "skinny" or "eating skinny" as a way to attract clients for weight loss. Shouldn't we as healthcare professionals understand the value of the strong, fit body?
There's lots of discussion these days about what to call people as they grow older. Nobody likes 'elderly'; 'senior' and 'senior citizen' are a scant improvement over 'elderly'; and we can argue till the cows come home exactly what 'older person' means. I'm fine with using my actual age as a descriptor. I'm a '64-year-old.' Period. What I'm not fine with is being called 'adorable.'
Alcoholics call it "Getting Sober" for a reason. They don't "Get Drunk"; they are drunk. John Q was barely a drinker at all, so therefore did not "Get Sober." What he did was "Quit Drinking", and there is a big difference.
