By Kevin McGran Sports Reporter Sat., Dec. 8, 2018 BOSTON—His full lineup — almost a dream team — finally assembled, all Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock needs to do is find a way to keep his players healthy. With William Nylander and Kasperi Kapanen involved in a car accident on their way to the airport Friday, and Auston Matthews’ physically manhandled into the boards on Thursday, it may be easier said than done. While some within the locker room made light of the accident, Nylander took a serious tone. “Just happy everyone was OK after,” said Nylander, whose Volvo S-60 was severely damaged on the passenger side. “Everyone is feeling OK. Me and Kappy are good.” Nylander said the other driver and passenger were OK as well.

It happened from … [Read more...] about Maple Leafs finally have a full lineup, but it’ll take time to find its stride
Lost my car keys how much will it cost
To travel or to save? It’s a question many people have, especially when it’s the holiday season and airlines are offering special prices. If you’re an office worker who wasn’t born with a silver spoon, it’s normal to think that it’s better to save for emergencies and retirement than to travel. However, what if you’re born with a strong sense of wanderlust and traveling is considered a need? I personally don’t want to live in resentment. Chasing my dream keeps me motivated and passionate in life. After all, what’s the purpose of saving all that money if I’m going to die tomorrow? When I decided to embark on my first trip to Turkey, I was too young to think about emergency funds or retirement. I chose to travel over saving. However, as I grew older, I realized there are a few things that freed me from the dilemma. Believe me, it’s not following the YOLO (you only live once) motto. Saving and investing let me … [Read more...] about To travel or to save? How to end the dilemma
By Tanya Talaga Staff Reporter Fri., Oct. 19, 2018 SIOUX LOOKOUT, ONT.—Dr. Mike Kirlew meets me at the Sioux Lookout Airport because it is -40 C and my rental car won’t start. During the winter months, cars need to be plugged into power outlets overnight or their batteries will freeze. Mike laughs as he tries to jam the key into the ignition of the Toyota-turned-ice-block, but the key won’t move. The steering wheel won’t budge. Everything is frozen. The sun blazes in the cloudless blue sky, but it gives us no warmth as we scurry to his car and hop in. Mike takes off his thick, beautifully beaded moose-hide mitts and pushes back his beaver fur hat before he starts the car and turns up the seat warmers. He pops in some Bob Marley. The smooth sounds of reggae evoke images of a climate about 80 degrees warmer, a perfect antidote to the harsh realities of the Canadian winter. Mike, who was born in Ottawa to Jamaican immigrant parents, is a … [Read more...] about The health system in Canada’s North is failing — but not by accident. ‘It is designed to do what it is doing’
By Joseph Hall Cannabis Reporter Fri., Aug. 31, 2018 The Acapulco Gold rush that’s been building towards cannabis legalization in Canada has been marked with bold claims, exuberance and the promise of riches. As the Oct. 17 decriminalizing date draws closer, however, many public health experts fear the rampant hype may be eclipsing needed discussions on the significant problems that a broader use of the drug could bring. “Anyone who wants to sell you, figuratively, not literally, cannabis as an innocuous substance or harmless substance is either a fool or an ideologist,” says Benedikt Fischer, a senior scientist at Toronto’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. Jag Khalsa, former head of the medical consequences division of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, goes further. “In the past we’ve had alcohol and tobacco, these two substances alone are the worst ... chemicals known to mankind,” says Khalsa, who … [Read more...] about Are health risks of cannabis getting lost in the haze?
Marc Lore is the president and CEO of Walmart eCommerce in the US. He founded Quidsi and sold it to Amazon in 2011 for over $500 million. Then he founded Jet.com and sold that to Walmart in 2016 for $3 billion and stock. His first startup was acquired for $6 million. Lore says radical transparency, choosing the right cofounders, knowing finance, and selling to the right company are key to his success as a business person. Marc Lore’s first big startup sold diapers before it was bought by Amazon for more than $500 million. But after it was acquired, Lore says he felt let down. “It was this really depressing sort of moment where we didn’t even want to go out for a [celebratory] drink,” Lore said on Business Insider’s podcast, “Success! How I Did It.” “It wasn’t a celebration. It was sort of like mourning.” After Amazon he went on to found a competitor, called … [Read more...] about A Walmart executive who sold his 1st startup for $6 million, 2nd startup for $550 million and 3rd startup for $3+ billion reveals how to become wildly successful
