It is important to constantly acquire new talents in order to brand yourself as an asset to any organization.

Here are the top 10 things I've had said to me five minutes before I was to go up on stage. Were they intended to pivot me on my heels and sabotage my precocious "career?" You be the judge.
For years now, ever since the Assisted Human Reproduction Act became law back in 2004 and prohibited the purchase of donor gametes from a donor or a person acting on behalf of a donor, most donor sperm used in Canada has been imported via the U.S. or other countries. The problem? Here it is: at this point, most egg banks in the U.S. offer only anonymously donated eggs.

In 2012 I supported Amendment 64 in Colorado, a common sense step toward ending the archaic prohibition mindset that has resulted in the U.S. leading the world in the incarceration of our people -- a prison system packed with non-violent drug offenders.
Contemplating death is a powerful tool to re-appreciate the present and remember what makes your life meaningful to you. We're all trying to make sense of our lives and there's great comfort in knowing you're not alone.
Being a British writer, I'm all about the knickers, but I'm quite partial to some panties, too! I can remember the first email that I received asking me what a jumper was, and then another wanting clarification on what knickers were.
