How a Credential Evaluation Can Help You Find Employment

by  Jodi Tingling One of the most important job search skills is understanding the perspective of an employer.

This will help you quickly verify your overseas education and q...

Where to Hike, Bike & Refuel in Lethbridge Alberta

If you’re on the search for new places to explore why not take a break from the mountains and head out on a road-trip to Lethbridge, a former coal mining city of just over 100,000 people, located on the scenic Oldman River in southern Alberta. Lethbridge Alberta is an undiscovered gem when it comes to its outdoor spaces. Reconnect with nature here via a network of hiking and biking trails – or a paddle/SUP experience on the Oldman River. From what I saw of the city on a short visit, it’s...

Duke university research shows masks can be worse than no masks....

I know for a lot of people the debate over masking is over: "Its been proven scientifically that masks help limit viral spread" they'll say.  Often it's because they read a headline somewhere that says masks can be an effective tool.  Of course science is always evolving, research goes on and on and what was true on Monday can be proven false on Tuesday.   That's certainly been the case with the debate over masks.  We've gone from hearing that they offer no real utility, to that they are vita...

Ontario moves to a Swedish style pandemic response - Shhh don't tell anyone

When Sweden opted to avoid stringent emergency measures many were shocked and surprised.  The Swede's didn't take a completely laissez faire approach, but compared to countries like Canada it sure seemed that way.   Gatherings of more than 50 people were banned, bars and restaurants remained open but patrons had to be seated.  School for younger grades remained open, while students attending high school and up were taught on-line.  Businesses were not forced to close down, but working from h...

Future Fields is tackling cultured meat’s biggest problem

One possible solution to cellular agriculture’s biggest problem — how to develop a cheap, humane, growth material for cultured meat — may have come from a conversation in line at a Tim Hortons in Alberta.

Providing High-Touch Through High-Tech: Resilience In Hospitality Through Human, Technology And System Convergence | By Ambika Gandhi, MRICS

The Covid-19 pandemic has taken a severe toll on the global hotel industry. In Canada alone, the accommodation and food services industry (the hospitality industry in a broad sense) accounts for 1.3 million jobs in the national economy, and contributed $44.6 billion to Canadian GDP in 2019. In Canada, as in all countries around the world, travel restrictions have led to staggeringly low occupancy levels, sometimes in the single digit percentage.

11 (more) things on my mind about the protests in the u.s.

In April, I wrote a post called "11 things on my mind about the anti-police-violence and anti-racism protests". For reasons unknown to me, it's one of the most widely-read posts I've written in a long time. So here's an updated list.1. When governments respond to protests with violence and intimidation, and the protests only grow, a movement has reached another landmark of growth and development. This is  happening right now, and it's exciting!2. Protest by middle-class and middle-aged citizens ...

India must avoid Nationalisation of Data

Imagine this. It’s 2025, and for a decade now, you’ve been running a company at the forefront of innovation in healthcare: millions of customers have bought your fitness trackers, and use them to measure their heart rate along with cardiac monitoring and ECG, body temperature, sleep patterns, physical activity and fitness regimes, blood pressure, blood oxygen levels, dietary habits and nutrition intake, apart from also storing their medical tests reports.

listening to joni: #15: turbulent indigo

Turbulent Indigo, 1994 Front Cover Turbulent Indigo is a rich album, one that demands repeated listening. Every time I hear it, I discover new sounds and meanings, and I find that it has slyly become one of my most beloved of Joni's work.The name of the album is itself enigmatic. Many reviewers have noted that it echoes an earlier masterpiece, since the colour indigo is a form of blue. I don't find much in common between 1972's Blue and this one. On Turbulent Indigo, the music is spars...

The MoonShade: A Light, Portable Awning for Camping

If you’re a camper, I think you’ll find the MoonShade to be an incredibly useful piece of gear. It’s a lightweight, portable awning that attaches to vans, cars or trucks (via two very strong magnets) or to windows via suction cups. Don’t have any of the above? You can still tie it off with guylines to a fence, tree or door frame. The bottom line – it’s very portable and it can be used in a variety of situations. The MoonShade was designed by a couple of guys in San Francisco – Matthew Pearson ...
