Bumblebees are dying

Habitat losses of many bumblebee species from climate change are about to accelerate. If we leave climate change out of control, the appearance of this planet's vegetation will be totally different from what it is today. Bumblebees can pollinate flowering plants for much of the year.

Think you are safe from poverty? Think again!

Poverty can happen to anyone at any age. It's difficult and humiliating. Yet, it shouldn't be since the majority have, are or will experience it. 71% of Quebec residents are in debt, according to a recent survey conducted for BDO Canada, a professional financial services firm.

Sick? Stay home – Easier said than done

I was reading an article written by a fellow parent, a rant really, demanding that people keep their sick kids at home before they kill someone.

I've spoken about my cousin and his wife who discovered that their employer was paying men and women differently. Canadian women are more likely to face violence and live in poverty than men....

Open mindedness make you likeable

Being open-minded makes you more likeable. Why? Open-minded people are more approachable and interesting to others.  No one wants to have a conversation with someone who has already formed an opinion and is unwilling to listen to anyone else's point of view.
