Doctors’ Refusal to Refer Patients for Treatment They Refuse to Provide on Religious Grounds

The importance of religion in Canada is reflected in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, both in section 2(a)’s guarantee of “freedom of conscience and religion” and in the inclusion of “religion” as a protected ground under section 15’s equality provision. As all guarantees, these are subject to section 1’s justification for limiting rights, which are “subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society”.

Originally Poe envisioned a parrot, not a raven

Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1949) is considered one of America's great writers. Poe penned his most famous poem, The Raven, in his 30s. Originally, the poem's feathered subject was a bit flamboyant. None By his mid-30s, Edgar Allan Poe was not only weary by the hardships of poverty, but also regularly intoxicated — by more than just macabre visions. Despite this, the Gothic writer lucidly insisted that there was still a method to his madness when it came to devising poems.In an essay titled "The Philo...

Breaking the rules, banana cake and Brexit

Image from Pexels Here's a quote for you to consider: "Rules are for the guidance of wise men and the obedience of fools." It has been variously attributed to World War 2 RAF fighter ace Douglas Bader, entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson and inevitably, Albert Einstein. All of these were notorious for breaking or bending the rules, in various ways throughout their careers, and we are grateful that they did. It doesn't matter about the origin of the quote - it resonates with mavericks, non-...

The Ancient Romans First Committed the Sartorial Crime of Wearing Socks with Sandals, Archaeological Evidence Suggests

Image via Wikimedia Commons Of all sartorial crimes, none require quite so much brazenness — or simple obliviousness — as the wearing of socks with sandals. But unlike most widely disdained fashions, which usually tend to have enjoyed their heyday two or three decades ago, the socks-and-sandals combination has deep historical roots. And those roots, so 21st-century researchers have found out, go much deeper than most of us may have expected. "Evidence from an archaeological dig has found," wrot...

The History of the Quirky Music Typewriter: Vintage Technologies for Printing Musical Notation

Music printing history, as the site Music Printing History shows, parallels book printing, but uses the technologies differently, from woodblock t...
