I don't fault the New York Times liberal editorial pages celebrating a Liberal victory in Canada. It's their paper and they can print what they want. What got me were the Canadian journalists who rushed to their liberal friends down south with op-eds to complain how awful things were up here under Harper.

Let's Stop Labelling Ourselves

We humans have an innate desire to define things, don't we? Let's slap a label on something to determine it's perceived value, purpose or meaning. It's how we categorize and compartmentalize our surroundings. People, too.

Two recent books by high profile psychiatrists provide readers with background knowledge that is essential in shaping our own responses to one of the biggest social problems of our times: severe mental illnesses. Now that psychiatrists are increasingly willing to enter into the messy public arena, it's up to the public to see what we can do with the information they are providing.

I sit on the periphery of journalism. A PR guy who needs journalists for business purposes and appreciates a good read, too. So I have been struck that this week the biggest news stories have been, well, about news.

What Meditation Can Teach the World

Meditation might just offer what the world needs, if only human beings could be gifted with a modicum of mindfulness. And mindfulness is, if you ask me, widely, appallingly underestimated. Not to be confused with self-awareness!

Biased Coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Is Not Journalism

George Orwell stated, "Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed. Anything else is public relations." Unfortunately, most North American journalists have acted as PR reps for Israel's ongoing invasion in a variety of ways, some subtle, others explicit.

To give women more opportunities, Invest in Muslim Women funds training centres in India and Pakistan, giving women marketable skills in industries such as fashion. After a training session, the average woman's salary in India jumps from $12 a month to $60 -- a five-fold return that has the added benefit of raising her status in the family as well as in the community.

I Don't Need the New York Times to Tell Me What to Read

Recently, the Times' laudably levelheaded public editor wrote about the "Recommended" section's growing real estate. Readers had, according to Sullivan, complained about the move's impinging on their privacy; some noted that they were sufficiently competent to choose the articles they read on their own; others did not want their reading preferences monetized.

Why We Need to Break the Silence on Eating Disorders

Andrew Boozary | Posted 02.22.2014 | Canada Living
Andrew Boozary

Are we doing enough about an illness that is silently eating away at both a mother and daughter? Twenty years ago, People Magazine headlined one of their covers with, "Princess Di: Struggle with Bulimia Brings a Puzzling Disease Out of the Shadows." Eating disorders still remain a private battle for millions of young women, and the faces of those affected are changing. We'd be downright wrong to frame it as a "rich, white girl's disease." How do you capture the cost of subjecting millions of women to calorie counting or religious scale stepping?

Millennial Life is Not Like Retirement

Jaime Morrison | Posted 01.23.2014 | Canada Living
Jaime Morrison

Millennials face these "trappings of success" and we aren't making six figures. We live in a world where our parents, teachers, and professors of the c-suite generation still hold us to these traditional measures of success. Today post-secondary students are graduating with more than $26,000 in debt, on average. This is a far cry from the rosier prospects that those in the Baby Boom generation saw when they were in their 20s.

The newspaper industry has yet to come to terms with the Internet. With decreasing circulation figures and declining ad revenues, daily papers haven't figured out how to turn a profit from their online readership.

Why Medicine Needs the Humanities More Than Ever

The sciences continue to offer boundless promise for the profession and the sick. It's the humanities that will beg how we get there. In medicine, we are certainly privileged with "front row-seats on life" -- the worry is being glued to an iPhone amidst all that meaning.

How Internet Trolls Make the Boston Tragedy Worse

I couldn't help but wonder what kind of individual downloads a photo of a cute little girl running a race, then, with the full knowledge that what they're doing is fraud, fobs it off as the victim of a heinous attack? Was it not tragic enough that we knew three people had died, dozens were seriously injured and thousands profoundly affected? It made me angry.
