Many people enjoy accenting their décor with accessories and furniture pieces that reflect their cultural heritage. An Inusktut from Aboriginal culture, a painting of a Spanish village or a bonsai plant from Japanese culture can be reflected in a home by people of that culture and also by people not directly from that culture.

Helen Mills, vice-president of Green Gardeners, says that when you are inside at night and you hear a rustling outside, you may think it is the leaves in the wind. It is not the leaves, actually it is an earthworm and they are helping to decompose the leaves to help create the garden of your dreams.

“The ideal thing for leaves would be to let them decompose if you have a lawn,” Mills says. “This turns them into a beautiful mulch that is good for the lawn. You know your garden is trying to get there. If you copy nature as much as possible then you would have a much easier garden to get there.” Read the rest of this entry »

It is where we start our day and where we end our day – the bedroom. Making your bedroom a beautiful place to be in, something more like a haven, a refuge or a sanctuary may be pivotal to getting good sleep and enjoying special moments in that room too.

Diane Fotheringham with Titus & Louise located at 677 Dupont St. specializes in creating beautiful bedrooms for her clients. After retiring from her former work training people on computers with an airline, she started sewing. Designers in the city liked the work she did, so she opened up a store at Christie and Dupont. The store has been there for about 15 years. Read the rest of this entry »

Air quality in a home is important for feeling comfortable. If you cannot breathe – the multiple thousands, if not millions you have spent on your dream home or condominium will seem like a huge waste of money. No one would want that and many people would not wish that on their worst enemies.

CRTC recognized for its creative and innovative work 
on behalf of Canadians

June 19, 2014 – Ottawa-Gatineau – Canadian Radio-television 
and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is
proud that its work is being recognized through the Public Service Awards
of Excellence. CRTC employees will be honoured at a ceremony this fall for
their creative and innovative work in the areas of Official Languages,
Employment Equity and Diversity, and Policy. 

CRTC employees will receive an award in the Official Languages category
for the high degree to which the use of English and French was promoted in
all aspects of the CBC/Radio-Canada licence renewal proceeding. Throughout
the proceeding, the CRTC instituted measures to ensure that all Canadians
could be heard in the language of their choice and to foster the full
participation of official language minority communities. These measures
set a new standard, which have been emulated in subsequent CRTC
proceedings.

The CRTC’s long-standing commitment to support the integration of
developmentally-challenged employees in the workplace will also be
recognized. Since 1991, the CRTC has welcomed individuals who live with
Down syndrome or other developmental disabilities and has fostered a
stable, fulfilling and accepting workplace in which their unique needs are
addressed and respected. The CRTC’s Developmentally-Challenged Employees
Steering Committee will receive the Employment Equity and Diversity award
for its management of this initiative. 

Finally, CRTC employees will receive an award in the Policy category in
recognition of how it engaged Canadians in new and innovative ways to
develop a code of conduct for wireless service providers. The CRTC made
extensive use of social media and other technologies to engage Canadians
and ensure the public’s views were included in the discussion at a public
hearing. The result was a code of conduct that addresses many of the
frustrations that Canadians shared with the CRTC and that contributes to a
dynamic marketplace.

The CRTC is proud of the work it is carrying out to ensure Canadian
citizens, creators and consumers are at the centre of a world-class
communication system.

The CRTC congratulates all of this year’s award nominees and recipients
for their outstanding contributions to improving the lives of Canadians.

Quick Facts
• CRTC employees will be honoured at a ceremony this fall for their
creative and innovative work in the areas of Official Languages,
Employment Equity and Diversity, and Policy.

citizens, creators and consumers are at the centre of a world-class

Your beloved pet could be what motivates you to buy a home, or what could be causing you problems. Imran Javaid, a realtor with HomeLife Miracle shares his stories of dealing with clients who have had pets.

“Recently I was working with a client, not into buying, but helping them to lease the property and they had a very lovely dog,” says Javaid. “The way this couple’s daughter would talk about him or her in their absence, it told me how much they were attached to their pet. Getting a property to lease with a pet was very difficult, they actually started looking to buy. Giving up their pet was a decision they did not want to take.” Read the rest of this entry »

Many people have their favourite colours, just like they have their favourite lottery numbers. The number 1 is associated with the colour red. The number 3 is associated with the number yellow and the number 8 is associated with the colour rose pink. These theories come from an ancient science that you may or may not believe in known as numerology. Some of these methods can help you personalize your living space and when in doubt, you can always go to a colour consultant. Read the rest of this entry »

Home Security Tips – Lock your doors and windows

Home Security Tips:


Most thieves look to steal small, expensive easy to carry & conceal items such as cash, wallets, purses, credit cards, identification, jewellery and electronic equipment. Remember to take steps to safe guard these items. Don’t give a thief a free opportunity, remember to lock your doors and windows especially with the nice weather we are currently enjoying..


• Make sure all doors, windows and skylights to your house and garage are always closed and locked.


Deadbolt locks should have the following features:


• minimum of 5.6 cm (2 1/4 inch) interlocking bolts to hold the cylinder together


• pick-resistant cylinder


• drill-resistant cylinder


• twist-resistant, tapered hardened steel, or free-spinning cylinder guard


• hardened steel bolt, minimum 2.5 cm (1 inch) long (when thrown). Level 2 style bolt is cut resistant.


• alarm system


• after market locks, stoppers for sliding doors and windows


• security film for glass (laminate)


• Park your vehicle in a locked garage if possible.


• Keep your vehicle locked at all times.


• Use your exterior lighting. Regularly check to ensure all exterior lighting around your home is powered and operational.


• Install exterior lighting around the complete perimeter of your home if you don’t already have it.


• If you have a back alley or easement, be sure no unauthorized person can get into this area.

Fran Rider, Executive Director of the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association says Canadians are born with an interest in hockey. She came from a sports-minded family and started playing around 1967.

“It has powerful opportunities, many of the girls are teachers, professors, they’re highly educated,” she says. “There are many police officers. The young girls have role models in life, not just in sport.” Read the rest of this entry »

Trends in hair fashions are keeping tempo with music and other media. Looks change from the rock and roll and out of bed, straight with no frizz and shiny as a mirror like classical or jazz, or alternative radical styles with no half measures and no compromises.

The desired look with StudioFX

Many young people are adopting these trendy looks and in every way letting their hair hang loose.

“[I have a] curly look,” says Elle Spencer-Lewis, a part-time editor. “Usually I’ll put on some kind of glossy hold product when it’s wet, and then put on a spritzer when it’s dry, and blow dry it slowly.”

Spencer-Lewis is fairly familiar with this season’s hair trends. She’s glad she does not have to straighten her hair anymore.

Possibly a good product for Spencer-Lewis might be the “radical” brand of products of L’Oréal Paris’s new Special FX line, which is supposed to be great for pasting, shaping and setting.

“Extreme hold is guaranteed,” says manager of public relations for L’Oréal Paris, Caroline Badger. “Radical gel’s original ‘glue’ texture is enriched with fibres to create extreme effects almost hair by hair – with a hold that just won’t quit!”

Caroline Künzle, 27, and a part-time theatre usher, isn’t looking for a radical look with her wavy to straight, relatively short hair. She wants less structure.

“My hair maintenance is quite low,” says Künzle. “I’m growing it out, and decided to go for a longer look. It’s kind of in that awkward in-between stage. I’m kind of trying to go for that palm tree look. The look I want is the out of bed, and as unkempt as possible.”

GET RADICAL

Künzle likes the unwashed look.

The new Special FX line “out of bed” product, aimed at the under 30 age group, promises to tousle and unsettle.

“A bonus benefit, the formula is extremely pliable and allows one to change the direction of the style during the day – to create a unique ‘remix’ as the day goes on,” says Badger. “Whatever movement is fashioned, hair remains shiny and supple…and stays that way!”
Angela Li, a 29-year-old financial analyst with naturally straight hair, sometimes tries to make it even straighter. Read the rest of this entry »

Marie-Helene Cousineau is a video and filmmaker who I first met by being her teacher’s assistant at Concordia University in Montreal back in 1997. Her career path has lead her to many opportunities to work with Aboriginal people in Nunavut. She is founder of a women’s video collective called Isuma.

“Just the fact that I moved to Igloolik, this was not something I planned ahead,” says Cousineau talking about how she came to form Isuma. “I was working with women’s groups and individual women before moving to Igloolik, so I was working for people that were there.” Read the rest of this entry »

Back in the mid-80s, watching Oprah Winfrey’s bouncing and behaving hair was like a dream come true. I never knew that black hair could do that. I rushed to a salon, telling them to duplicate the Oprah ‘do on my head, and they did. The bad part is that just like what once happened to Oprah, my hair fell out. I was left with no hair on my head to duplicate any ‘do. Read the rest of this entry »

This is the Spain where it is easy to play Red Rover on the beach, but hard not to shop. This is the country of siesta, cheap shoes and sangria that flows like a river. You must order your water like this: “aqua sin gaz,” which means still water. But this country is not still. Everything moves, and it moves to the rhythm of a Spanish guitar as you dance the night away meeting Spaniards and Brits who have had too much beer. Read the rest of this entry »

A Sprint to a Clothing Line

Published in Pride Magazine – June 29, 2005

Ben Johnson, the fastest man in the world according to a 1988 World Record time of 9.79 seconds, is now in the clothing business.

“I just like good clothing, good fabric, good taste and I think that this type of business is the right thing for me to get involved in,” Johnson says. “I’ve done this many years ago. I’ve done this for 30 years and this isn’t the first time I’ve had my own clothing line. In 1987 I had my own clothing line in Italy and it didn’t really take off because of the public. So I decided to come back 18 years later and do my own stuff.” Read the rest of this entry »
