It’s easy to forget how students from great distances can struggle with loneliness. Now I finally understand the meaning of the song “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music. Thank you for sharing your journey and excellent advice. I, too, share my home with younger people. My older friends, especially, have slowed down. Some have passed and others are taking care of grandchildren. This makes interacting with others difficult and can lead to loneliness. Having one or two young people in my home does wonders for mind and body. They’re busy, but we make time for each other. While we are all cautiously science advocates, the one issue that keeps arising is around the statement, ‘the universe is expanding.’ I find this statement highly problematic. Any time we put a finite line on something, one can always ask what is on the other side of this line. If the universe is defined as only that which we know, we might be able to say that the masses we know are moving apart. However, if we define the universe to be all that there is, then it must be infinite. I was fortunate to have taught at an alternative school in Scarborough, Ontario, called ASE1, from 1989 to 2002. This article reminds me of why I loved it so much. Yes, you can find a lot more information about the 10,000 PhDs project here. I want to congratulate you on the autumn issue of University of Toronto Magazine. I read almost the entire magazine for the first time in years. When I graduated from U of T in 1960 I went straight to Boston where Harvard Magazine awaited me. I hid my U of T Magazine from sight because of its chest-pounding provinciality. In 1988, I joined the Columbia faculty where Columbia Magazine had the same dominating effect.
We ban cigarette ads and put warnings on the packages because the cost of lung cancer treatment is excessive and burdensome to everyone. At the same time as healthy living is being promoted, ads for fat and sugar should be banned and restrictions placed on foods that have long term detrimental impact on the health of our society. Certainly “…inactivity, widespread availability of high-fat foods, city design that leaves us dependent on cars…” are major contributors to obesity, and any solution must address these causes to be effective. The authors claim public policies have been ineffective. I would argue these policies will work, but have either not been initiated or sustained. I go to U of T Engineering Skule and I’m pretty confident when I say we have a lot of traditions and we keep most of them alive. I agree that exclusivity and pride are great things. Pride in my faculty is what makes me say “Engineer!” without another thought when someone asks me who I am. In three weeks, I had to learn how to use a state of the art PC , a new operating system called DOS, a program language called C++, and link it all to a machine language interface to control the video screen . Three weeks and about 1,000 lines of code later, it was done and delivered. First, the author failed to make any mention of anesthesia during labour or the caesarian section. I can only assume that neither the contest’s judges nor the author had ever experienced or attended such an operation. The anesthesiologist is vital to provide pain relief and resuscitation, and can even advise an inexperienced obstetrical surgeon. When the anesthetic is effective, a screen is placed to separate the mother’s head and neck from the surgical field. Frequently the husband or special friend, who is gowned and masked, is invited to hold her hand while the anesthesiologist monitors the I.V. And vital signs and comforts the patient as the other arm is restrained to guard the mother’s hand from entering the surgical field. In Orwell’s 1984, every house has a surveillance camera that can never be switched off but none of us lives in a novel – or would want to. #5 Do not waste your time by just hanging out. There are a lot of people to distract you and many will not stay around. You’d be surprised how many won’t be back for second year. Simply attending all the lectures and following what the profs say will probably be enough to pass the course. Of course, it is very much advised to study hard to get the desired “A+”. Having a degree these days won’t get you far, unless you plan on working in your father’s company. It brought back many childhood memories for me. It’s Friday today, and this article put a huge smile my face. Too bad Samer Muscati’s reputation as a human rights researcher and activist is severely undermined when he let’s himself be interviewed by that left-wing rag of a media organization known as Democracy Now. The entire section on stress during pregnancy and the amount of time a child should be breastfed are both, frankly, insulting. Is Matthews arguing that mothers who experience extreme stress during pregnancy and who could not or did not breastfeed their child/ren — that their kids are doomed?! What I find most disturbing is the subtext of all of these studies – the drive to “scientifically” categorize what it means to be a ‘good mother’ (and, therefore, a ‘bad’ mother). Should we call it the ‘Cult of Motherhood’? I didn’t think we were living in the Middle Ages. As a child of a fisherman, I appreciate this poem.
Budget and Authorization to Engage Services and
Again, I point out to honourable senators that the committee that was established by this chamber was established for the purposes of dealing with legislation. That was the way the committee was set up. There is no indication, none, that any dollars are missing, misappropriated or misspent. With that said, all of the funds in question are accounted for by Treasury Board between 2001 and 2009. All of these funds are accounted for in the public documents presented to Parliament, including public accounts, which the honourable senator is almost an expert in going over with a fine-toothed comb. The honourable senator seems not to accept that answer. I can only give the honourable senator the answer that I believe to be the answer, and that is that Health Canada, which does have a very — I think the honourable senator is being a little harsh on Health Canada. We have a very safe and healthy population thanks to the work of many of the agencies of the government and many of the agencies of Health Canada, including Health Canada itself. They have assured us that they have inspected the facility, have gotten independent advice and that there are no risks. I do not know what the leader means by “independent analysis,” but certainly there is a sufficient track record here to warrant further investigation. I would hope the government does some investigation regarding Health Canada carrying out its responsibilities to keep the Canadian public safe. Honourable senators, the lack of action on the part of Health Canada when it comes to the regulation of drug manufacturing raises real questions about the safety of the drug supply in Canada. At our hearings at the Social Affairs Committee, we have also heard they have been inadequate in terms of the number of inspections they carry out, and they have been criticized by the Auditor General. I do not see how one could buy the stuff the leader just talked about. We cannot resort to profiling, but we must remain alert and the public must work with police to thwart terrorist ambitions. I am sure honourable senators have remarked that time is of no importance to terrorists. They move here, study, work and are often seen as good neighbours. However, we had no idea that, just days later, Canadian police would foil an equally serious plot that was in the works here in Canada. For some people, terrorism has been on the back burner in recent years. Some security measures put in place after the September 2001 attacks in New York were starting to be relaxed because some travellers found them too restrictive. One year waiting for the right time to intervene, before these individuals had a chance to carry out their plan and kill innocent people. Since the 2008 crisis, there has been a lack of jobs in many countries. The crisis hit a number of European countries particularly hard, and they now have unemployment rates that sometimes reach over 20 per cent. Right now, there are over 200 million people worldwide, often young people, who are looking for jobs. It is important to note that this number does not take into account the underemployed or those who are not looking for work because they are convinced that there are no jobs available. In Canada, nearly 1.4 million people are actively looking for work. A decent job has therefore become a demand. Since the end of the 19th century, May 1 has been known mainly as a day to recognize the demands of workers. However, in order to demand better working conditions, people need to have paid employment. Honourable senators, Canadians of Asian descent have made great contributions to Canada, from building the Canadian Pacific Railway until the present. In 2011, 48 per cent of the immigrant labour force was born in Asia, and almost 60 per cent of permanent residences granted were to people from Asia.
I’m almost finished my first degree but things went wrong this year and I spiraled into depression. I feel i was forced to grow up too fast and do things i wasn’t ready for. I want more time to grow and I want to learn more. I want to go and do another degree at another school once I graduate. You’ve made me feel less ashamed of the idea of needing more time before going to the next stage. I don’t think the author is trying to say that people are going to be shucked aside as soon as they start getting into a rough spot. There are so many campus programs designed to help with this, you just have to put your hand out for help. For courses that aren’t required, you get a more personalized feel with the prof. You can ask questions, spend a bit more time, etc. I don’t think there’s a single program at U of T that has you in multi-hundred-person classes the entire way through. I don’t necessarily agree with the author in their notion that U of T’s stance is to weed out and push aside, but I also don’t agree with Peter’s idea that it’s all cold and impersonal. It’s been my experience that courses can be a bit large at U of T, but you have to remember that it’s a university working on the notion of “accessible education, and research” first. Large classes are symptomatic of universities that have large demands, and somewhat low income. U of T competes and does extremely well on the international scene. But generally the profs and TAs for these courses were good. Right from the start we are encouraging and supporting a sedate lifestyle. Positive and sustained campaigns for healthy living would be very beneficial. It is too bad that we have to be reminded to do the right thing, but even ads promoting good social behavior on public transit are effective. Supportive policies and education campaigns for healthy living must be done, and soon. I went through depression the first couple of years of university. I just thought that I was having a bad attitude to things and that I should stop being so upset. But then I realized that I was only anxious thinking about school, so I switched out of U of T and went to another university. I love learning now, I feel less pressure and I enjoy and appreciate my education. I really do not understand if this study has any benefit to sciences or human rights or pure intellectual curiosity. As previous reader pointed out, by asking people to identify gays or straights, you are skewing your final results. Infancy, early childhood, formal education, mother-baby (father, and other relatives-babies), genetic structure, environment, success (“whatever it means”) in life. In spite of the complexity and controversial nature of the subject, I found the article very well written and informative. Wishing the best for the proposed Institute for Human Development. Fabulous story – so many layers to be examined.
Casually Gambling: The Case of Casual Games
Now the supporters of anthropogenic warming are ready to “close the book” and say that because there is a consensus, there is no need to debate this anymore. If this kind of thinking had prevailed at the dawn of science, then the Earth would still be flat and there would only be four elements in the periodic table. The real question here is why we are spending so much to create a car park in the centre of a large urban area that is very well served by mass transit. The municipal demand for more parking spaces is something that a progressive university, and one with a new focus on its relationships with the urban environment, should be fighting, not capitulating to. While telecommuting is certainly a viable solution many organizations for both reasons of internal culture and operational necessity cannot embrace it. I propose a legislative agenda that develops and implements tangible financial benefits for employers to locate outside of the GTA. There is plenty of serviced land and trained employees in Southwestern and Eastern Ontario that would relish having more employment opportunities. Allowing more people and traffic into the GTA is not the answer. This interview with Prof. Joseph Heath is blatantly biased. While the professor’s comments themselves are reasonable, he only provides examples of untruths or lack of civility from the conservative side of the political spectrum. I’m sure it would be easy to find examples from all sides and thus present a balanced critique of our political affairs. This bias unfortunately erodes the credibility of U of T Magazine and the university, which should be teaching students to think critically in general, not just about one side. I was delighted on a recent visit to observe some of the progress achieved in Toronto and to realize how dynamic the city now is and important a role U of T has played in this. I had recently joined a choir that does songs with chant type music. I am 63 and have Alzheimer’s so anything I can do I will try. The first sample I use in the morning for three minutes on and then three minutes off. I feel the tension come off and a warmth comes over me. It feels like my blood is warmer or maybe it’s just flowing better. This story was written for the print magazine, and so space was limited to one example. We included the only example of a “farcical” rating. I am not a computer scientist nor am I a philosopher. And I am certainly not religious, at least in any theistic sense. But I believe we make a grave error when we dismiss human consciousness in this way and then conclude that machines might one day equal us. I believe that such a narrow view of the human mind – equating it with the material brain – is causing us to lose sight of what it means to be human. I arrived at this document rather late in the day, but I read it with great interest, and am grateful to Deirdre Macdonald (my “cousin” a couple of times removed) for publishing it here. From its inception in 1920 to circa 1960, survey camp was six weeks long. At a nominal eight hours a day, the course was weighted the same as four hours a week of lectures during both fall and winter terms.

I’m completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask. Post is written by him as no one else know such detailed about my difficulty. Visiting this site and be updated with the latest news posted here. Can I simply just say what a comfort to uncover someone who really knows what they’re discussing on the net.
- I enjoy reading through a post that will make men and women think.
- There is means greater than simply the feeling of being had.
- By the time parents find out about this jewel of a school…
- What a fantastic and innovative idea to generate electricity.
If he’s gone this way, it would be extremely motivating for local foodies to look at the numbers, put their money where their mouth is, and purchase only seasonal produce. One can’t expect local summer produce in mid-winter. U of T Magazine, and society in general, seems to be filled with propoganda promoting the heterosexual agenda. Don’t people know that heterosexuals are the main reason for high divorce rates and broken homes? I don’t understand why people would choose to live a heterosexualist lifestyle that is so obviously flawed and morally aberrant. I still fail to understand why thoroughly educated individuals seem to lose all ability to reason when sexual diversity matters come into play. These comments make me ashamed to call people such as yourselves my fellow alumni. The various comments on this article condemning the choice of cover topic, voicing concern about “the gay agenda,” and denouncing the degree programs in sexual diversity studies really concern me. Anne Perdue’s article provides a good start for LGBT history at U of T, but offers a very incomplete picture. Focusing on the policies of U of T rather than the individuals is rather dull. There is no discussion of how race and class played into LGBT activism at the school. Many trans people also identify as gay/lesbian and, along with straight people of good conscience, contributed to the struggles described here. The comment will be made that it is impossible to chronicle the history of transsexual people, but then that was a charge once made regarding gay/lesbian people, which we find well countered by this very piece. I read the article with great interest, having been an undergraduate before most of the events chronicled took place. Yet I struggled in vain to see any mention of transgender or transsexual people during this period. It is as if there were no trans people active in Toronto at this time – or possibly ever. Gay acceptance is a complex and important issue for our society, since it goes to the heart of who we are and what we celebrate as human beings. But I question if anybody really understands where society is heading as a result of the freedoms and choices of the sexual revolution. Dave, it should not be taboo to discuss this at all but your comment begs the question, did you really understand this article? It seems to me that you are not aware of your own presuppositional biases and “myside blindness.” There is no such thing as a bias-free position. It is irrational to think that the evolutionary materialist view is the only valid one when it starts with the fundamental assumption that there can be allowed no non-material explanation for the Universe. “Figuring out how leaders interpret the world and how they evaluate their options” is a key to understanding their actions and motivations, opines Professor David Welch. Surely the key to their actions and motivations is no great mystery. The real difficulty may turn out to be within academe itself, where such an important motivation as “power” is largely ignored by political scientists, and “revenge” by social scientists in general. I don’t see this described in the article. And why does this article suggest that there are few, if any, studies showing the efficacy of natural products such as herbs and supplements? There are many such studies, but to acknowledge them is not in the interest of faculties such as pharmacy or medicine. Will you please report both sides of the concern, and not simply the one that “big business” or “old boys’ medicine” dictates as proper. I enjoyed reading the spring issue for many reasons, if only to read about people I went to either Skule or school with. I was a little disappointed at one omission, though. The co-developer of IMAX cameras and projectors was Bill Shaw . Bill’s contribution certainly made an important impression on the entertainment field. Jay Teitel’s article reminds me of a small but subtle piece of humour that I and several others would indulge in when filling out university forms. I was upset after reading this article that John Gerald FitzGerald was proclaimed the visionary architect of Canada’s modern public health system. I was astounded that the writer, James FitzGerald, did not see fit to mention the work done by Dr. Gordon Bates, general director and founder of the Health League of Canada – formerly the Social Hygiene Council. However, it seems to me a little presumptuous to claim that the dying male knowingly and deliberately breaks his copulatory organ in order to prevent other males from copulating with the same female. Is the dying insect really concerned about a future lover? Perhaps the rigid organ simply snaps in the death agony of the hapless male. I congratulate you on commissioning an article about renewable energy but I wonder if John Lorinc was the best person to write it.

At home again, I became a teacher and educator in the Ministry of Education, and a writer. In the books that I wrote for schools, I told of the ex-slaves from Jamaica who settled in the Maritimes . I had no idea that there could be Black people anywhere else in Canada. I have also written other children’s and YA books . Really, this is such an important article. Thank you for the work that you do, Prof. Karina Vernon. It is admirable to see a young woman at the beginning of her career, so willing to forgo what could potentially be a highly lucrative career to use her expertise for the good of the community. It’s great that she has a social conscience and has used it to create imaginative ways to help solve kids’ problems. I agree with her that if addressed early enough, most issues that could conceivably damage a child’s life irrevocably, can be dealt with and have a successful outcome. I wish Ms. Austin continued success in her quest to positively impact childrens’ lives and “help get people on the right path.” Thank you for this article about a great project. I first read about this concept, with regards to a pilot in an American city, a few years ago in an essay in “What the Dog Saw,” by Malcolm Gladwell. Thank you also for clarifying the people implementing the program here. This must have been a lot of effort, but a feel-good to be able to make such a positive impact in someone’s life. I’d love to see a follow-up with longer term results. Federal transfers and provincial allocations for education, health care and other social services have been on the wane for years. Not only for the benefit of the students and society, but also for the schools themselves. With increasing reliance on corporate and alumni donations for funding, the integrity of the university, already tarnished, is further diminished. Have tough economic times and a desire for increased participation in higher education encouraged the Ontario government’s interest in a differentiated post-secondary sector? But will this be the end of The Academy as we know it? California’s system is often regarded as one of the strongest public post-secondary sectors in the world, with a high level of mobility for students between institution-types. Instead of a threat, this discussion paper may be the start of a bright new future for higher education in Ontario. I experienced a similar situation my first two years of university, eventually withdrawing from my classes towards the end of my second year. Even though I returned the next year I have been slowly working towards my degree in order to balance a full-time job. Stress and anxiety is something I still deal with. Even today, I started panicking at the thought of another year-and-a-half left in my degree. I worry about pleasing my parents, about seeing all my friends graduate and about what I look like to everyone else. I also experience feelings of hopelessness, and question if I will ever even finish my degree. I’m glad to see I am not the only one who needed to prolong my degree in order to gain some perspective and truly appreciate what I am there for — the knowledge, not the parties.
With the help of social-work trained advisers and counsellors, the rate of violence in domestic issues and mental health cases could be dramatically reduced I believe. Please continue to urge our politicians to attack the systemic racism that exists in our criminal justice system. My respectful suggestion is that our politicians stop giving police new broad discretion to search, detain and arrest. Our criminal law has been amended many times in the last few years to give police more investigative tools, gear and powers. Police powers need to be limited, not expanded. Police powers need to have bright lines that circumscribe them. The public also need to be educated about the dangers in turning a blind eye to police abuse of their powers. Unfortunately our politicians, media and entertainment glorify police “toughness” on “crime” and “criminals,” thus oppressing ordinary people doing lawful things, who may simply, be a target of police racism. Thank you for sharing your experience and wisdom. To learn more each day about the lies of the federal government, tears flow. I pray for the improvement of the living conditions of loved ones. The land is not a possession, just part of the whole. The ignorance of this natural law is the source of such pain and is man’s own creation. I think it is important to speak up for the truth. But it is equally important not to create and spread falsehood or fake news. We must understand and assess the benefits and damages offered or incurred by social media. I went through an experience of false news, generated by a vindictive former employee who smeared my reputation in the media while I was working as a professor in the European Union. Even after my complete exoneration, the attacks from this ex-employee continued. Thankfully, my husband and I decided to return to Canada. My Canadian university, Universite de Montreal, determined the truth and gave me the support I needed to keep going. It will be interesting to see how these discoveries — those that have true merit, in particular — are brought to the marketplace to serve the public. For example, the Alberta Research Council has developed, with taxpayer support, viable products from research — only to see them sold to the U.S. because there was no investor interest in Canada. Working with Merck is appropriate to access resources, but I would be concerned if our tax dollars are contributing to these studies without any future return and recognition. The University of Toronto is advancing research and education related to climate change and sustainability, and is committed to significantly reducing its own carbon footprint at its three campuses. As well, the University of Toronto Asset Management Corporation has assumed a prominent role in the global investment community, incorporating environmental, social, and governance factors into its investment decisions. These efforts are all part of the university’s multi-pronged approach to meeting the global challenge of sustainability. At that time as well, Norrie supported our Junior Fellows’ campaign for the admission of women to Massey as full members. Davies fought that tooth and nail for several years. When the Junior Fellows’ leadership group created an internal newsletter for advancing the cause, Davies was reportedly furious. Norrie, on the other hand, sent us a personal cheque (from “H.N. and Helen Frye”) to support the newsletter’s printing costs. Canada’s increasing diversity is by no means reflected in the social science and humanities faculty at Canadian universities and print media. This is due to the legacy of the century-long Indian Residential School System, which ended in 1996, over a dozen years after the passage of the Charter of Rights of Freedoms in 1982.
