Kristen Marano | February 9, 2016 | Canada Business
Digital nomadism has been rising in popularity over the past few years, yet it's still largely misunderstood. I've been a digital nomad for about two years, and family and friends continue to ask me, "do you ever work?"

Launch Your Book Like Apple Launches Phones

Lyda Mclallen | February 8, 2016 | Canada Business
Apple launches are the stuff of legends; they cause lineups for days, stores to sell out, and months of back orders for their newest products. You can use the same marketing techniques as Apple to successfully launch your own book as well. There are four techniques you can use that won't break the bank and will help build a cult around your book.

International Trade Should Not Come At The Cost Of Human Rights

Jagmeet Singh | February 8, 2016 | Canada Politics
While premier Wynne and her 72-person delegation meet with India's heads of state to talk trade and visit the country's picturesque backdrops for photo-ops, they do so while simultaneously ignoring India's abysmal track record on human rights, systemic inequity and institutional racism.

Small Steps Towards Re-Engagement With Iran

Navid Hassibi | February 5, 2016 | Canada Politics
Re-engaging Tehran does not mean that Canada and Iran will become strategic partners, however, if Canada can engage with Saudi Arabia, a country with which little is shared in terms of values, then surely it can engage with Iran whose population is highly secular and Western-leaning.

Get Up And Move Around (Or You'll Be Sorry)

Marc Davis | February 5, 2016 | Canada Living
You need to be aware that your muscles and tendons all tighten-up when you sit for any length of time, especially your hamstrings, calves, and back muscles. If that doesn't seem important to you, then visit a nursing home to see what awaits many of us in the not-too-distant future.

Alberta Can Keep Health Care Affordable Amid Sliding Oil Prices

Martin Ferguson-Pell | February 5, 2016 | Canada Business
As world oil prices and the Canadian dollar slide perilously, Albertans must become more inventive and rigorous in managing our costs -- and our expectations -- especially in high-cost areas like infrastructure, education and health care. Health care is the biggest challenge.

Unions Should Oppose Advertisements And Cars

Yves Engler | February 5, 2016 | Canada Business
At their finest labour unions are class conscious organizations that check the corporate elite's influence over public policy. But, even the best Canadian unions have largely failed to provide an alternative vision to the existing system and challenge the power of big business over important areas of our lives.

Executor, Trustee, And Attorney Compensation

Suzana Popovic-Montag | February 4, 2016 | Canada Business
When called upon to act as a personal representative, whether in the capacity of an attorney, executor, or trustee, the issue of compensation is often called into question. The basic starting point for executor or trustee compensation is the will or trust document.

Push Back Against B.C.'s MSP-Like Infrastructure Levies

Jordan Bateman | February 4, 2016 | Canada Politics
Road levy. Recreation and culture levy. Transportation for tomorrow tax. Dedicated road tax. Asset levy. Make no mistake: we want our cities to invest in infrastructure. Sewer, water, roads; these are core responsibilities of local government. But repackaging this spending with a new tax is a slap in the face.

Recruiting Differently To Innovate

Sonia Desrosiers | February 4, 2016 | Canada Business
Large companies often have the best talent: those who have ideas, expertise and skills to innovate. However, these people may be managers who are often overburdened, which gives them very little time for new projects. This is why some companies decide instead to recruit teams whose sole purpose is to innovate.

Tips For Success From A Refugee Turned Entrepreneur

Lyda Mclallen | February 4, 2016 | Canada Business
The most important message I could share from my experience growing up and coming over to Canada is that being a refugee doesn't last a lifetime. It's an experience that lasts but a few short years and opens the door to a life full of opportunities to learn, grow and succeed.

Energy East Is Anything But Canadian Oil For Canadians

The Council of Canadians | February 4, 2016 | Canada Business
When TransCanada first announced its 4400km Energy East pipeline project from Alberta to Saint John, the spin was all about nation-building. This spin is dependent on the idea that Energy East will see crude produced in the Prairies replace so-called foreign imports to Atlantic Canada.

3 Ways You Misunderstand Journalism

Dave Yin | February 4, 2016 | Canada Business
It's not often that journalists talk about themselves. As much as we convince readers on a daily basis that the subjects of our stories matter, we failed to convince you that we matter. It comes as no surprise then, that much of the mudslinging in recent weeks in response to reporters speaking out about the massive layoffs are based on a misunderstanding of what we actually do and why.

How To Reinvent Yourself In Business

Evan Thompson | February 3, 2016 | Canada Business
Looking at the rapid arrival and departure of independent businesses in Canada, it's clear that sometimes we have to move on and try something else. For many professionals and business owners who are fully committed to their work, this is almost unthinkable. How do you know when it's time to reinvent yourself; to move on and try something else? And, how do you do so while taking advantage of the professional profile you've built up over several years?

Kristen Marano | February 3, 2016 | Canada Living
Kinesiology helps to uncover the emotional causes of self-limiting beliefs, distress, anxiety, pain, illness, and disease. Kinesiology uses light muscle testing to identify stressors in the body, allowing us to work on a deeper level than with conventional therapy.

Hands up if you spent more than you wanted to this past holiday. From gifts to entertaining to travel, it's easy to get swept up in the holiday spirit and dole out more cash than you first intended to.
