We really wish we'd thought of Facebook.
I consider throwing on the same T-shirt and jeans or suit and tie -- day in, day out -- a missed opportunity to improve your productivity before you head into the workplace. That bit of mental energy and time you may devote to finding something new to wear every morning can very well pay off dividends, I find. It's meditation by menswear.

The Facebook CEO is one proud papa!
Granted that Zuckerberg and other wealthy individuals do such public and private acts and structure their affairs to their advantage, my point is that most people will do the same and nobody does anything without expecting something in return, be it material benefits, fame, feeling good about oneself, reward in the afterlife, or other tangible and intangible benefits.

If you're a working actor, you're in a very, very small percentage of very fortunate people. I think 97 per cent of union actors are out of work, and that's actors in the union.
For many Canadians, Canada Day is the beginning of their vacation. What will you do? Where will you go to unplug & reconnect? Whenever I participate on call-in shows, the most popular questions that I receive, are usually about tipping etiquette. Canadians from coast-to-coast want to know; to give or not to give and how much.

The tech tiger, the wizard, the miracle, conceived in-vitro by geeky young scientists and bred in captivity by dotcom wunderkinds. I like technology.
