‘The Telegraph’ shows that the time may have come to put Narendra Modi to a ‘truth-detector’ test

Fast running out of rhetoric, Narendra Modi has said “ urban Maoists live in AC rooms in cities, look clean, build their stature by rubbing shoulders with sensible people; their children study abroad; they move around in good cars; but they sit there and through a remote system, they work to destroy the lives of tribal children”. Phiroze L. Vincent of The Telegraph newspaper has done what any journalist of any newspaper or news TV channel should do: check out this pathetic claim which has a pr...

Where to go to reconnect with nature

Fresh air, wide-open landscapes, and the sound of, well, nothing. We’ve all been told how getting outdoors is good for us, but it’s not just our physical health that it benefits. Just five minutes of outdoor activity — even just walking — can help boost mood and self-esteem, and contact with nature has been linked to reductions in stress, depression, and anxiety. Yet these days, it seems we’re more reluctant than ever to switch off. Eighty-four percent of US citizens live in urban areas, the ...

Far too often, companies are forced into a solution that doesn't meet the needs of their business. You don't want to use an exhaustive enterprise tax software for your individual filing, nor does a corporate audit business want to be forced into using software focused on personal finance. The needs of a consumer and business are unique and very different.

My Life on the Road: Headed for Texas, crazy cold in Claresholm

With my wife's gig in north central Alberta spinning down for another year and the cold charging hard at us like a bull moose in rut, it's once again time for us to head south. This year, thanks to the two weeks it took me to replace a lost passport, we started off later than we would have liked. *** We left Calgary late in the day. No matter how much lead up we have, there always seems to be a few last things to do. Saying goodbye. Picking up snacks for the road. Double checking our rig's engi...

No-wash Unbound Merino shirt review

Overpacking may be one of my worst qualities. As a Marine, my pack during field exercises routinely weighed five to 10 pounds more than others. Now as a travel writer — another job where you’d think light packing would be an essential skill — I check a bag for any trip longer than a weekend. It’s not that I pack 100 different outfits, necessarily. It’s just that I don’t like wasting travel time doing laundry, and I never want to be somewhere and think, “I wish I hadn’t left that at home!” Whe...

They enable overpackers like me the luxury of having a stash of our sexy fragrances to last us through an entire vacation. The impulse to pack all of my makeup, hair, and skincare products, along with my entire wardrobe, is strong. For my last vacation to Japan, someone working at the airport I was passing through was eyeing one of my cosmetic cases. To say I panicked was an understatement, as I could have swor...
