A Woman's Guide to the Impostor Syndrome

Kim Smiley | September 30, 2014 | Canada Living
I am not saying that we should not strive to be the very best people and professionals we can be. This is not a call to "lean out." By all means, let's strive to be amazing, but let's also aspire to be more gentle with ourselves and with others.

What I Learned From 24 Hours of Posing as Doug Ford on Ello

Jeremy Wright | September 30, 2014 | Canada Politics
It all started simply enough. I registered "Doug Ford" on Ello in jest. And then decided to start adding some friends. At which point, the fun began. I left the office with hundreds of email notifications from Ello, dozens of tweets and even an article in the Toronto Standard! Which is when things turned dark. Very dark. My 24 hours of being Doug Ford taught me 7 key things.

How to Buy a Wedding Dress Without Wanting to Kill Yourself

Chloe Tejada | September 30, 2014 | Canada Style
Unlike what movies, friends and TV's "Say Yes To The Dress" say, I never thought about my "dream" wedding when I was a girl. I didn't dream about my "perfect" wedding dress. So when my boyfriend proposed to me in August, I instantly dreaded the idea of planning a wedding and saying "yes" to the dress.

Why You Must See Your Doctor After a Trip to the ER

Michael J. Schull | September 30, 2014 | Canada Living
Studies have shown that inadequate follow-up care after emergency room visits is common, with up to 30 per cent of patients with chronic illnesses not seeing a doctor within 30 days after they've been sent home from the ER. Why? In part, it's because fewer than one in three primary care physicians in Canada report being notified when their patients visit an emergency department.

Let Men With Same Sex Lovers Donate Blood

Jonathan Crombie | September 30, 2014 | Canada Politics
Over a year ago, Canada lifted a 30-year-old prohibition on gay men donating blood. However, Canada Blood Services still includes a ban on blood donations from any man who has had sex with another man in the past five years. That is why the Young Liberals of Canada want a policy that is based on evidence, because no single, loosely defined group should be discriminated against based on generalized statistics, perceptions or prejudices. A blanket ban on sexually active MSM is not merely discriminatory; it's unsafe.

Weight Problems Can Stick With a Family for Generations

Timi Gustafson, R.D. | September 30, 2014 | Canada Living
The question whether obesity is solely caused by diet and lifestyle choices or whether a person's genetic make-up plays a role as well has long been debated among scientists without producing conclusive answers. One recently completed study tried to shed more light on this issue by following entire families over several generations.

Put Some Colour into Your Family Tree This Fall

Lesley Anderson | September 29, 2014 | Canada Living
Fall is my absolute favourite time of year. The leaves begin to turn and the heat of the summer (such as it was!) fades to cooler days. Kids are settling into school and everyone starts to get back into the swing of things....

Stop Fooling Yourself: You Need Your Sleep | September 29, 2014 | Canada Living
If there's one thing we've realized recently, it's that we aren't as super human as we once thought we were in the sleep department. Meaning, we actually need it. Traditionally, we've tried to cram every last second into each day in order to complete at least 80 per cent of...

What I Learned This Week: Always Sign Your Work

Andy Nulman | September 28, 2014 | Canada Living
There is only one way that any one of you, any one of your companies, or any piece of your work can be considered a "brand." And that's if people recognize it's you... and how you differ from others. So whether it's a multi-million dollar logo or a barely legible cursive scrawl, the power is in your hands.

How Derek Jeter Restored Our Faith In Baseball - And Showed Us How To Live

John Stackhouse | September 29, 2014 | Canada
In an age when superstars think they're bigger than the team, and the ownership, Jeter knew otherwise. Even a 14-time all-star was still an employee, and George Steinbrenner, until he passed away in 2010, was the boss. Jeter revered the boss, but also managed to connect him with the crowd. One of their better moments together was a VISA commercial, in which they're filmed in a conga line at a Manhattan night club.

Arthur Gallant | September 28, 2014 | Canada Living
To the police officers reading this I have a message for you: You are strong. Getting help is not a sign of weakness: it is a sign of strength. Please do not suffer alone, just as you expect civilians to seek you out for help you yourselves must also get help and its OK to do so.

Jason Tetro | September 28, 2014 | Canada Living
Whatever the reasons for this epidemic, there are a few signs of hope.

Should an infection occur, there is still only a small chance it could get worse;

After he created the new menu items, Corbin brought the food to the kids for a taste test. Not surprisingly, the students were happy with the results. Chicken lollipops rolled in crushed vegetable chips and baked in the oven, oven baked panko-crusted zucchini, kale Caesar salad made with a lighter dressing, and black bean and chicken tostadas were a few of the selections.
