It has been a stressful summer with a seemingly non-stop barrage of police shootings and shot police, terror attacks and terrible Trump. Even during the ride up to the Burl's Creek event grounds, there was the mass shooting in Munich. The world right now is a scary place, and WayHome provided refuge.
Cottages and vacation homes are great spots to host relaxing get-togethers with friends and family. While relaxing is key when it comes to getting away for a few days, there is a little more work involved when it comes to getting prepped and ready for your guests' arrival.
We can vote, and drive, and march on Parliament Hill without fear. But do we question the deep rooted inequalities that make it possible for Aboriginal women and girls to disappear without a trace, and without an outcry? Do we demand an end to the gender wage gap that has been stuck at around 72 per cent -- and hasn't budged in years?
Lets be honest. The tentative Physician Services Agreement negotiated between the OMA and the Ministry is not a good deal. Anyone with any experience in negotiation, law, or with any common sense can realize that this barely qualifies as a contract. But I'm voting yes, and I strongly encourage my colleagues to do the same.
I've been with an Italian for almost five years and I'm ashamed to admit my language skills are still tipping towards sub-par. His family, all based in the lovely Tuscan town of Piombino, speak no English at all and, while my ear has improved visit over visit, I imagined that I would be much further along by now.
At first glance, obesity may appear to be an easy problem to resolve. After all, most people may believe the answer lies in eating fewer calories and exercising more. While these are definitely helpful, obesity is an incredibly complex issue, and involves a number of factors ranging from genetics to socioeconomic status. So can antibiotics help?
Free speech, we say, is a principle we will defend to the death. Until perhaps we don't agree with what has been said. Then, suddenly, we are able to find very valid reasons to rationalize ourselves away from a supposed absolute value. Cases like Yiannopoulos' push our proclaimed moral positions up against the wall, compelling us to confront our human tendency towards personal bias. And that's why they are so interesting.
When it comes to trauma, in particular, pushing away the thoughts and feelings can often exacerbate the intensity of the symptoms. The more you try to evade the problem, the more the internal pressure will build, until you explode. The problem won't just go away on its own.
As a nutritionist, I know how important number two is, and I have focused on that area of my own health for decades. When my transit time started slowing down, I took it as a personal affront to figure out the odd causes of constipation.
Today's ticket purchasing landscape is a classic example of how technology can disrupt business and create regulatory and ethical grey areas -- and decision-makers can't keep up with the disruption or implement solutions fast enough.
The fact that Ms. Jones loves herself -- the fact of her obvious confidence and the ease with which she speaks her mind -- well, that's an awful affront to the misogynists who expect a "woman like her," i.e. "not pretty enough" or light-skinned enough (in their tiny minds) to stay in the background with her mouth firmly shut.
As I watched you with your sweet babies, realizing how difficult this stage of life is for mamas like you, I felt a twinge of sadness come over me. Your children are still at that stage of life where they want YOU and you alone. You have the monopoly on their attention and love.
Online social media, if unaddressed by an estate plan, can be the cause of litigation. A person's social media may include writings, pictures or other mementos. These items may hold sentimental value to that person's family members and friends in a way that may not have been contemplated by the deceased.
Canadians rarely want to consider amputation as the best solution to treat a condition, but for Canadians living with diabetes, this can be a reality. In some cases, even severe ones, the amputation can be prevented, shielding the patient from a long and painful recovery period.
Donald Trump's apocalyptic acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland was easily the scariest political event I've ever witnessed outside of 1930s newsreels. As CNN's Anderson Cooper summed up: "He painted a dark and frightening picture of America, he talked about people being attacked by criminals, attacked by terrorists, betrayed by their leaders, the game is fixed. And he said he can be their voice." The thing about this tactic -- a far cry from conservative saint Ronald Reagan's inspirational "shining city on a hill" much less Obama's hope and change optimism -- is that it captures (and, yes, fuels) the zeitgeist of white America.
To understand the true value of food is to understand what the body requires to fully function. I know, it sounds corny when health counselors sometimes advise their clients to 'listen' to their body, but it does make sense. The body does make its needs known if we pay attention.
Understandably, prescription drug coverage only becomes a concern for many individuals when they can't access the drugs they need because of cost. If you haven't personally experienced problems with drug coverage, there is a high probability that your child, friend or loved one has.
As a tool, Pokemon Go has changed my life. It's such a simple tool (and let's face it, not a great app or game as it crashes constantly and is riddled with server issues) but it's vastly improved my mental and physical health in the two weeks I have been using it.
