Fellow friends, as we care deeply and mourn the great losses of our friends in far-flung parts of this great nation, as we grieve for Fort McMurray -- as we grieve for others: may we never forget that it is the care that binds our hearts together, knitted tightly and perhaps even eternally with cords of love and compassion.
Stats show that millennials prefer to use debit cards to credit cards for their purchases. Millennials are the first generation to grow up with debit cards, which may explain this pattern. Several findings prove that this generation isn't fond of credit products. The reasons for this may be many, but the top may be controlling spending and fear of debt. This lack and hesitance to use a credit card among millennials is causing them more harm than good in the long run.
Are we a genuine focus, or was #PMJT merely appealing to student and youth voters by addressing our federal election campaign demands? Following a campaign with such a strong focus on young people, we should expect nothing less than Trudeau's promises to youth to be included in his first budget as prime minister.
Children need time to imagine, play, create, be curious, read, write and dream. Children need time to explore and discover. Children quite simply need time. And without that time, they will become anxious, agitated, fearful, worried, nervous, restless, apprehensive and uneasy. The state of their mental health becomes a huge concern merely based on the decrease of time they are allotted during the school day within which to function as typical four and five-year-olds do: with child-like, playful abandon.
As necessary and significant as teachers know curriculum is to our work and calling: you must also realize that we will throw it all under the bus if it means assisting a child. We will put it all on the back burner if our students need us to teach them life lessons that will help them be better friends, better citizens, better people.
Restaurants and nightlife are a quintessential part of any university experience. Whether your scene is eating homestyle stew or sharing a local microbrew with pals, there's nothing like a night on the town to take your mind off school. We compiled a list of the top 10 schools and featured a hot spot from each one.
There's much more to university life than living at the library. Extracurricular activities can complement your studies, amp up your social life and truly round out your university experience. UniversityHub asked over 1,000 students to rate their schools across several criteria, one of which was extracurriculars.
Teachers: we have this year to write a part for ourselves in a child's life. To write a scene for ourselves in a student's life. To influence a young person, a teenager, a young adult in the writing of their life account. It might seem a small role. But we are crucial in that we are those who can make a difference.
Sometimes as teachers I feel we forget that we have priorities. There are some things more important than others. Curriculum is necessary, but if the house is on fire, that document is not coming with me. Outcomes are necessary but if the room is under threat, I will not give them a moment's notice. Lesson plans are useful, but if a child's life is at risk, that carefully laid-out plan for my day would be the last thing on my mind.
In response to the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis, our current Canadian government has reluctantly offered some support. We shall, according to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, accept 10,000 refugees over the next three years. As medical students committed to global health, we call into question this lukewarm commitment to such a pressing crisis and call for stronger commitments in line with Canada's values.
A strong bio-economy is essential for Canada to compete on the global stage. Each year, the bio-sector welcomes hundreds of new college and university graduates in all areas of the industry who are eager to enter the workforce and help fuel this exciting sector. That said, finding a match between the skill and the opportunity can be a challenge to both the graduate and the employer.
More needs to be done to identify the careers of the future -- this is especially important as the demand for a more professionally trained and highly skilled workforce continues to grow. It is more essential than ever to identify the future opportunities for young people and ensure students and parents know what qualifications are required to pursue those careers.
