It took an old man to touch my young breast to wake me up. I did not hear him come up to me as I sat in a plastic waiting chair because my Walkman blasted “Keep on Moving” from my Soul II Soul CD. I was in concourse E of Miami’s airport, waiting for my flight to Barbados. I was coming from Montreal in the February winter wonderland and […]
Wife Abuses: Past, Present, and Future Any crime that happens in the home is easy to conceal from the outside world. Wife abuse is a dilemma surveyed in conservative numbers. It a more common crime in the home that society is willing to admit. But, what is wife abuse? Why does wife abuse exist? Will wife abuse exist in the future? What would it take to stop wife abuse?

Sarah’s hair was too long and straight, that hair that came right out of a commercial prevented her from earning a living as a tax collector. She worked in her office as a receptionist, watching the men and women in three-piece suits walk by her desk and only ask if there had been a phone call. Sometimes, when they weren’t looking she would call her friends and they would pick […]

My first hobby was playing hairdresser to my Barbie dolls. I had my childhood in the 70s and 80s but I was not much different from Black children in the 40s who chose White dolls over Black dolls in a landmark study that lead to the desegregation of American schools. It was not that I liked chocolate skin over the cream of white colour; it really came down to the […]
CBC reports that US President Barack Obama has won the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009. His leadership in international affairs and aiming to bring peace to troubled regions are counted as reasons for this prestigious award. Congratulations President Obama.
By Brikena Ribaj I rightly talk about music a lot as it plays a significant part in my quotidianity. Most summers, thanks mostly to my intimate associations and friendships with those in the arts, I tend to spend a good measure of time learning about new music. Often I am asked how I learn about new music and just as often I answer quoting my musician friends as well as […]
By Rachel Muenz It’s a common story: An author gets published at a very young age. For a few weeks, she is the centre of media attention, people rave about her talent, her book may sell well, but then she vanishes from the literary world, never to be heard of again.
By Rachel Muenz Lately, if you search “Toronto garbage strike 2009” on Google you’ll get around 224,000 hits. Even this year’s garbage strike in Windsor generates 109,000 hits on the popular search engine. But if you search “DriveTest strike 2009,” only 97,900 will come up.
By Rachel Muenz If you’ve thought there have been a lot of movies about the end of the world coming out lately, you’d be right. Based on data from About.com, September has the highest number of films dealing with apocalyptic themes out of all 2009.
