In these heady days of waste reduction and sustainable food production, food recovery tackles our most bourgeois societal needs for perfect looking produce. For decades, North Americans have been turning their noses up at apple wormholes and rusty romaine lettuce, and produce retailers have caught on.

What I Learned This Week: Charity Starts at Home

Now, I give a lot of money and a lot of time to charitable causes. Yet many times I find myself dressed up and wondering "Just who/what am I raising money for tonight?" But if you give without thought, without conviction, without understanding what you can REALLY do to help, what are you really giving?

I didn't even know what the heck a prostate gland was until fairly recently, but needless to say, those little buggers have been getting an awful lot of attention lately. I'm not going to get into the details of how it works and the purpose it serves, but let's just say that, as a father of four, I considerits roleto be rather important.

Do All Diseases Need a "Movember" Gimmick?

Movember has made a very important contribution to men's health. But in addition to Movember, November is also Crohn's and Colitis Awareness Month. But most of us probably didn't know that; you can't grow two moustaches at once. Movember, along with a few other of the more fortunate charitable campaigns, is a behemoth. In its success, which is to be commended, Movember leaves a wake of other, less fortunate charities, patients, doctors and researchers. As this trend will inevitably continue to grow, I'm not entirely sure we should be comfortable with that.

The group is comprised of linesmen and referees from the Western Hockey League who have joined forces in an effort to raise $47,700. Their goal matches the number of Canadian men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2011 and 2012.

Should November Be a Month for Remembering Moustaches?

Jeff Rose-Martland | Posted 01.06.2013 | Canada
Jeff Rose-Martland

I'm not knocking Movember. It is an excellent campaign, both for fundraising and awareness. I don't even have a problem with the timing. I have absolutely nothing against Movember. I'm using it for comparison purposes because Movember and Remembrance both happen during the same month and are both about awareness. And last week, Movember enjoyed a lot more media coverage than veterans.

The Ultimate Manly Accessory? A Moustache!

The world-wide yearly event Movember, where men are encouraged to grow moustaches to raise funds and awareness for men's health, happens around the globe every November. It brought my attention again to this unique thing that men can do and women (well, most women anyways) can't. I became curious to explore the reasons why men grow facial hair, and whether or not women are actually attracted to it.
