US Begins Gold Cup With A Win

Expectations for the United States men’s national team are high in the Gold Cup, regardless of who actually suits up. Not only is the U.S. expected to win every game in the tournament’s group stage, but by clear margins as well. Fail to reach such a level, and the inquest into the performance begins. Sunday’s Gold Cup opener against Haiti was a case in point. The U.S. labored to a 1-0 victory over a side that was not only reeling from the assassination of the country’s president, Jovenel Moise,...

Horseback Riding in Banff: Trail Riders Experience

Horseback riding is not really my thing. I’ve been petrified of horses since my horse-crazy mother put me on a pony when I was five. And it’s not for lack of trying. I have been on trail rides all over Canada – from PEI to Ontario and Alberta. I even gamely hopped on a horse in Costa Rica and splashed through rivers and held on for dear life as we climbed up and down muddy mountains for literally hours. But despite all my time on a horse, I remain unskilled and know any horse I ride smells my fe...

Meet Mighty, an online platform where kid CEOs run their own storefronts; a “digital lemonade stand”

For kids of a certain age — think 9 to 15 — options for enrichment are somewhat limited to school, sports, and camps, while the ability to make money is largely non-existent. A new startup called Mighty wants to provide them with a new alternative through a platform it’s building that, like a kind of Shopify for kids, enables younger kids to open their own store online and hopefully learn a bit in the process. In fact, Mighty — led by founders Ben Goldhirsh, who previously founded GOOD magazine,...
