Contrast Between Photo-Op Justin And Policy Trudeau Is Night And Day

He won't talk about his government's non-progressive policies, but man does he ever look good with his shirt off. This calculation is duplicitous; it showcases an accessible leader but one with little time to get into the specifics of the policies that run counter to Trudeau's reputation of a real progressive. It is the best of Trudeau, it is the worst of Trudeau, and until his gushing fans and the complicit media start doing their jobs by demanding transparency, we will be stuck having to tolerate both.

This Is What It's Like To Have A 3D Selfie Taken

Traditionally known for paper printing, TPH introduced their 3D printing studio last November; intent on embracing modern change and 3D printing accessibility for clients. Taking on the service direction of both B2B and B2C requires the ability to be adaptable as heck, as well as hold an array of the right equipment and design knowledge.

Enough Trudeaumania, Let's See Some Real Progress

Trudeau talked about feminism. He took some selfies. He appeared on the cover of several magazines. Then he and Obama made some jokes. Then he did a one-armed push up. Those are just a small sampling of his antics since taking office. And now, I think I've had just about enough. Trudeau is clearly milking his greatest strength. His likability is off the charts, but with so many important issues happening in Canada right now do we really need to constantly be reminded that our prime minister is approachable and hip?

How Our Cultural Narcissism Is Killing The Planet

Some say that the selfie is the epitome of individual narcissism. The rise in selfie popularity seems to align with the trajectory of Western anthropocentrism, as both climb to a fevered pitch. Gone are the days when people were content to take photos where the landscape or other animals were the central features; now, humans are often centered in these shots, as though the scenes would be meaningless without a human face. The world increasingly exists as a mere backdrop for the comings and goings of Westernized humanity.

How To Be A Celebrity for A Day

Everyone deserves to have a day to feel special. Luxury can be associated with expensive outings, taste and experiences; however it can also be inspired by a sense of self worth and the way people make us feel. A life of luxury may seem out of your reach; but money isn't the only way to make you feel like you are worth thousands.

Three Reasons to Grow Your Pubic Hair

2014 may have been the year of the nipple (#FreeTheNipple), but 2015 is definitely the year of the bush (#PubeGame). Pubic hair is so popular right now, it's vogue. From mild to moderate tuffs, harbouring tiny strands of love in between your legs has been all the rage so far this year and it has no intention of slowing down.

Why Do Canadians Love the 'Humblebrag' So Much?

You've probably seen the photos and posts before: friends thrilled to attend a party, their Friday night post-work drinks at a new bar, or even selfies with a celebrity. Of course you'd want to show off your amazing experiences to your friends and followers! But to avoid being labeled a humblebragger, try finding the balance for the types of posts you share and avoid faux humility.

How Posting Selfies Can Boost Your Self-Esteem

I don't like pictures of myself, and I did a lot of self-reflection about that during the selfie project. The rules for the Selfie Project were simple: post at least five selfies on Facebook over the course of a week and talk to me about the experience afterwards. I don't consider myself "attractive" in any way the idea is bounced around: cute, pretty, beautiful, sexy. I am not alone.

In Defense of Selfies

If I may be honest, I love taking selfies. I think if you like how you look one day, you have the right to show it. You have the right to like it on Facebook. By God, if others like it, they have the right to like it on Facebook too, and you have the right to like them for liking it. If a selfie makes you happy, take it and tweet, Instragram and Facebook the holy hell out of it!
