As it pertains to fitness, I've always found action and superhero movies to be very inspiring. The transformations that these actors go through to successfully play their roles is absolutely amazing. There is nothing more inspiring than the super-human abilities of our favourite superheroes.

You would think, wouldn't you, that after six years of personal development, therapy, spirituality and general soul-searching, that I would know myself pretty well by now. But it turns out that while sometimes you find yourself through meditation, there other moments when you realize who you are by watching your favourite TV show.
I am not by any means condoning Josh Duggar's behaviour. His actions have been reprehensible. What I am doing is pointing out an all too familiar calling card that has been handed out time and time again by the same backwards religious fanatics that America calls its own. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have failed utterly as parents by refraining from doing one thing: protecting their children.

One day, one Grade 9 boy was mercilessly teased for wearing a pink shirt -- the next day, encouraged by seniors Price and Shepherd on social media, 800 schoolmates showed up in a sea of pink to express their solidarity. Today, Pink Shirt Days are held in schools across 13 countries by students who want to show they won't tolerate bullying.

This is about the end of excuses. It's about the end of the perpetual apology and the idea that if we as women don't rally, pull ourselves together and support one another we won't make it out alive. What I have experienced is that women more often than not say "I'm sorry" than any other phrase.
If it feels dark and grey and gloomy in Vancouver sometimes, it might be because our fair home has another identity: Gotham City. Well, at least for Tim Burton. A photo posted to Imgur shows a screen...

Movie franchises like "Superman," "Wolverine," "Spider-Man," and "Iron Man" continue proving that the appetite for superheroes in our lives is endless. But film isn't the only medium to romanticize th...
There will never be a time when we are not at risk from one of the long list of microbial threats. However, we are learning how to work with good germs, such as Lactobacillus, Bdellovibrio, and Micavibrio, as allies in the fight. These small defenders deserve our attention and respect.
I'm concerned my zeal for Power Records may very well be the beginning of my near-ironic imperial moustache/pork pie hat/monocle phase and that scares me to death. But I think my Power Records collection stems from wanting to creatively re-engage with the superheroes I grew up with while I still can.
Unless we self-reflect and make a change we risk becoming the voice we grew up defying. We might live long enough to see ourselves become the villain. The circle of defiance continues except now our children are the rebels and we are the evil empire.
We live in a world much like the world that Christopher Nolan built. Only without Batman. There are Bruce Waynes all around us. And anyone can be that symbol. While we don't have a silent guardian watching over us, we do have heroes like Victoria Soto. While nothing can right this horrible wrong that has been done to our collective humanity, we should be comforted by the fact that a 27-year-old teacher was willing to lay down her life to save the lives of her students.

There are several reasons why America hosts most of the recent mass slaughterings. While such incidents can happen anywhere, they are most prevalent in free, or democratic countries. In autocratic or repressive regimes, mass killings by explosives are for political reasons - Chechen terrorism in the Moscow theatre bombing or the Beslan school massacre. But not random, mindless slaughter. There is no logical way to prevent such massacres in a democracy.
He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight. Or just a guy with a Batman suit roaming Toronto. Toronto's masked hero is not Bruce Wayne, but Alex Brovedani, who has gained notoriety t...
In a world where books struggle with their own digitization and only a small few earn the right to have a book deal that can turn into a blockbuster movie, it seems like comic book culture grows and still has a certain level of protectionism when it comes to the value of the actual physical paper.
