It is irresponsible and unacceptable when the so-called leader of the free world turns his back on climate change -- the biggest and most urgent crisis facing humanity. Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Agreement is a massive failure of leadership.

Many businesses decide that they're going to start a blog. This is great! Or is it? When you choose to blog and do it right, it has the potential to do awesome things for your business. Do it wrong though and you'll be completely wasting your valuable time. A poorly written blog may even cause potential buyers to lose confidence in your business and go elsewhere. This is why adding a blog to your business marketing plan isn't something to do on a whim. It requires some careful thought and consideration.

While newspapers fall over themselves to be scandalized by 100 grand going towards policing 4/20 once a year, they are silent about the much bigger expense of fighting the pointless war against cannabis. The fact is that Vancouver's cannabis activists have saved the city many millions of dollars over the years.
For some LGBTQ Muslims cognitive dissonance gets heightened during Ramadan. Their inability to reconcile spirituality and sexuality leads them to temporarily divorce one aspect of their life, which leaves their underlying dilemma unaddressed.

As a divorce attorney, I've seen marriages dissolve for reasons that run from the trivial to the deadly serious. But there's one cause of divorce that seems to draw the most attention: adultery. Perhaps because we consider marriage to be a contract of love, adultery seems like the most serious abrogation of a couple's vows to each other.

As a northern nation that was mostly covered by glaciers only 10,000 years ago, Canada has fewer species than tropical countries where the evolution and emergence of new species has been operating in stable environments for hundreds of thousands of years. Tiny Panama has 10 times more tree species than Canada. Brazil has hundreds of more species on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species compared to Canada.

As a black female robotics researcher, I know that I am different than most of my colleagues. I joined a robotics class in elementary school and the world of technology opened up for me. After making my first project, I saw myself as a super heroine -- I had discovered my superpower -- and felt that I was beginning to acquire the tools and skills to broaden my horizons and change my life's path.
Before booking any flights, make sure your pet is healthy enough to fly. Underlying or pre-existing conditions make up the majority of incident reports so make sure you get your vet to clear your pet for air travel. Opt for a direct flight whenever possible; the shorter the journey the better.

Canadians have heard almost nothing from the dominant media about Banro's violent quest for billions of dollars in minerals. The little that has been reported is mostly the company justifying its operations. But where are the voices of ordinary Congolese? Don't they deserve to be heard?

I truly believe the first step to protecting nature is learning to appreciate it. And as environmental problems around the world advance -- with rising temperatures, more frequent natural disasters, and declining biodiversity -- the importance of connecting with nature only increases.
Minimizing screen time is still important, and there's a lot of evidence that when kids are younger than two it's important to keep it as close to zero as possible. For older kids, though, we also need to mitigate their screen use by addressing stereotyping and other problematic content and embracing active, social and creative experiences.
I've lived it. For every hug or kiss that warmed my heart, I missed out on hundreds more. For every time I saw my son before bed, I missed many more opportunities. Looking back, there were plenty of times I convinced myself I was doing everything I could to be present and put my family first.

While the couple is being mocked mercilessly online, they merely set themselves up as symbols of gentrification by writing the piece and are only a small part of the problem. In fact, gentrification isn't the problem, either - just the unbridled kind.

I lived in a rooming house in Parkdale when I was 15 years old. In remembering all this, I realize I was one of those 'vulnerable people' we see cited in discussions about housing and the effects of gentrification. I don't know what particular struggles the other tenants were facing, because I was too caught up in my own teenage angst and awkwardness to ask, but what we had in common was that we were alone. A rooming house was a landing place for me, so why are we treating it like a slur?

Is this really my mother? She's walking around in circles, yelling and cursing about people "breaking into her house." This exhausted, disheveled woman with fear in her eyes and venom in her voice is a nightmare vision, a grotesquely distorted version of my mom. This is life with an Alzheimer's victim.

SMART goal setting and time management are two business best practices that help professionals manage important priorities. And, whether used individually or used in unison, SMART goal setting and time management are formidable tools to manage and exceed objectives. First and foremost, you will have greater motivation and commitment if your SMART goal is something you really want. If you dislike a task, even a SMART goal matrix will not get you motivated.

When people walk out in the field of horses with me, they are entering into a space where no ego exists. There is only the pure reflection from the horses who, because of their prey nature, are reading not what we show on the surface but the intention of energy we are holding underneath that. We are mirrored from a place of pure authenticity where our own blindness and unconscious habits are revealed in an instant due to the highly sensitive nature and intuition that the horse brings to the conversation.

While I am still living with this incurable cancer, I have managed to turn my disease into my passion and continue to live a productive life. I recently celebrated my 15th year living with multiple myeloma, and can attest to the positive outlook for the future of others living with this condition.

Although students deserve a vacation, the entire summer is a long time to go without educational activities and stimulation. While this impacts a wide range of children, it can be particularly challenging for students of high-school age. What is the solution?

Asthma is generally divided into two categories: intrinsic and extrinsic asthma. Intrinsic asthma is triggered by something "inside" the body, including exercise, infection and even emotions such as laughing, crying or distress. Extrinsic asthma, also known as atopic or allergic asthma, is triggered by substances "outside" the body. These allergens are often the same substances that cause seasonal allergies, such as pollen, grass and ragweed. Here's how to handle them both.
Ghosting is a very painful experience. It is not only unbelievably shocking, it's also an experience that leaves you feeling confused and empty -- you never get the closure you so desperately need. In fact, it was so devastating to me that I wrote an entire book about it.

No parent dreams of their child working at a young age, missing out on school. But for Mark and his family of seven children in the Philippines, one income wasn't enough to provide for their basic needs. At seven years old, his son Paul carried the burden of work to give his other siblings a better chance in life.

Many parents and students think it's okay to take it easy until grade eleven because that's when universities start to look at grades. And once grade eleven hits, parents will often advocate for higher grades from their beleaguered school teachers. That's where the trouble begins.

The representation problem on Canadian screens is severe, not just in terms of ethnic diversity but also gender. Why are we still slow on the take, emulating what Hollywood does without considering what we should be doing better? Why are we still waiting for someone else to fix our problem?
There's no going back to simpler times, but our survival does depend on respecting our place in this miraculous world. To heal the disconnection, we must reconnect. It's fitting, then, that the theme of this year's World Environment Day on June 5 is "Connecting People to Nature."

We strongly urge all Senators to pass Bill C-16 without amendment. Because human rights must apply to everyone -- acceptance and inclusion is not reserved only for those who are like us. Trans and gender diverse people face discrimination, harassment and violence in many aspects of their lives.
