I had no idea Texas had a wine scene, let alone one as vibrant and interesting as what I discovered inGrapevine, a town of 49,000 that swells annually to about 300,000 when it hosts the largest wine festival in the southwest United States.

We have been forced to the farthest reaches of the continent, evicted, killed, induced to deny our heritage and starved out to make way for Canadian "progress." Native mascots are a lingering reminder that the Indigenous cannot participate in Canadian society equally.

Over the last few years there has been a steady stream of disturbing videos showing minorities being gunned down by the people meant to protect them, most without any sort of criminal consequences for the shooter. Add all this to the horrible history of racism in America and it's no wonder that someone from that community would want to take a stand. Yet it happens so rarely.

If you're like many travellers visiting a city, beyond taking in the usual tourist attractions, you probably enjoy wandering off the beaten path to get a better sense of the town. Although exploring different districts and hoods can be fun, what's an even bigger blast -- and a sure way of finding out what makes the locals tick -- is to attend a major league sporting event.

Prior to the Super Bowl we looked at Google Trends data (that measures changes in search terms) to see if the Super Bowl games had any effect on searching for online porn in 2014 and 2013. We found evidence that was consistent with the Challenge Hypothesis: "winning" states increased their searchers for porn terms and "losing" states decreased their searches for porn terms.

Why the Media Should Pay Attention to Michael Phelps' DUI

Philip Vloet | Posted 12.02.2014 | Canada Living
Philip Vloet

I find society's reaction to offences committed by African American athletes and the Michael Phelps news disproportionate and eyebrow raising. It would appear that society has casually accepted his apology and his sponsors have not made any indication that they wish to distance themselves from him, as did many of the NFL's sponsors did after public backlash to the incidents above.

Hey Business Executives, Don't Forget Social Media is Always Watching You

It seems the Internet, like Orwell's police state, is slowly forcing everyone to stay on his or her best behaviour. In my mind, the Internet won when yet another elevator video surfaced of National Football League player Ray Rice punching his then fiancé, prompting his release by the Baltimore Ravens and an indefinite suspension by the NFL.

Every Second Woman You See Has Been a Victim of Violence

Stephen Hampton | Posted 11.11.2014 | Canada Living

The reality is that domestic abuse is far too common in society and that includes Canada. According to a Statistics Canada study 50 per cent of women in Canada have experienced physical or sexual violence since the age of 16. Think about that for a minute. Look around your office, your classroom, the street your walking on; statistically every second women you see will have suffered violence. And domestic violence is not just limited to people we don't know or people we don't see. Think about your friends and your family, your co-workers, and your classmates -- any of them could be victims of domestic violence.

Asking Abuse Victims Why They Stayed Is Still Blaming Them

Toula Drimonis | Posted 11.10.2014 | Canada Living

To these women this isn't just the monster who kicked them down the stairs or told them they were worthless. He's also the man who romanced them and won their heart, the man they sleep next to, the man they make love to, the man who may be the father of their children, the man they build a life with together. To walk away from him is to walk away from the good moments, from the dream of that life. The possibility of what might have been, if only he could change and see the light. Abuse victims didn't "ask for it" or "like it" or "cause it." They are victims, and asking "why didn't they just walk away" -- whether unintentional or not -- blames those victims.
