That's why every night -- as James is onstage performing Friend Like Me -- he makes a point of making eye contact with every other cast member who's out there making this eight-minute-long production number stop the show.
We spent that brunch and some time after passing the printed proofs for Margaux's work across the table like trading cards -- she was putting together an exhibition catalogue you can pick up at the gallery or online.
To trust a powerful and secretive intelligence agency may be a hard pill to swallow for anyone. In April, after a five-year investigation, the Senate Intelligence Committee concluded that the CIA misled the government on its secret detention and coercive interrogation program.
Rob Ford, the illustrious Mayor of Toronto, has entered rehab. I know it might come as a shock to you given the purity he has shown but alas, no one's...
Traveling on a budget doesn't mean you have to stay in crowded hostels crowded with college kids or live on a diet of macaroni hot dogs.
If you told me four years ago that images taken with my smartphone would be featured in art publications, in exhibitions and appreciated by a loyal following across the globe, I'd say that's crazy. Then along came a digital photo platform (Instagram) that said instant expression was OK and that you could learn as you go. Instantly, when you sign you up, you're an artist.
Very little mitigation or adaptation activity is happening at any level of government. For example, the Mayor of the City of Toronto seems to have much more enthusiasm for tax cuts than installation of storm sewers, notwithstanding last summer's catastrophic storm which the TD economists price at $944 million.
It goes without saying, but I'll say it anyways. Being a working mother is a never ending balancing act. My children have always had a politician for a mom; I was elected to Toronto's city council before they were born. My chosen career -- and my choice to run for Mayor -- means that my life is, to a certain degree, public.
When I was told to that Detroit was on the agenda for cities being featured on Season 2 of Rebel Without A Kitchen I wasn't entirely sure how I felt about it. But being in Detroit, eating in Detroit and being a part of Detroit's vibrant up-and-coming street-food and art scene actually paints a very different picture of the city.
I never expected to be flying in my first plane at age 22. A month and a half ago Canadian Madeleine Grant emailed me, inviting me to the 2014 Hot Docs International Documentary Festival to be held in Toronto. She has a made a documentary film on my classmates and myself called The Backward Class.
The sad irony of most addictions is the addict participates in this behaviour as a means to connect with others, but the result is always a distancing from others. This is what we are witnessing now with Mayor Ford -- as he slips further into his self-destructive addictive behaviour, he pushes even those fiercely loyal to him further away. For me, the pathway to my addiction was set in motion by the sexual abuse I experienced as a child. Only time will tell what demon lies at the heart of Rob Ford's behaviour.
For anyone with personal or professional experience in dealing with addiction, none of this comes as a surprise.
What may appeal to one person and induce them to buy your product may not appeal to another, based on their culture and beliefs -- even though the benefits of the product or service may very well be the same for everyone.
For a crowd with a reputation like the Thunder's, this is unacceptable. The prevailing idea is that with nothing else to do and no other major league sports teams to root for in Oklahoma, Thunder basketball means everything to the locals -- they live and die with every KD jumpshot and Westbrook foray into the lane.
What's lost in discourses lauding evidence-based policy is the nagging sense of agency over the policy directions we pursue; the concessions our ideologies are forced to support. Faced with that choice, I'll take argument-based policy every time.
