Aries ( 21 March – 19 April )  – You have probably been working hard and pushing yourself in professional life and this is where exhaustion and doubts have come in. You may be questioning whether this has been worth it and if you will ever reach the end. This is not the time to give up as the end is within site. It is time to find what is missing because until you do, real happiness cannot be achieved. It is time for you to reach down deep inside yourself and find the energy needed to keep going. One last push and you’ll be on the peak of that mountai. Favourable Date:  Dec 2, Favourable Colors : White & Blue.

Taurus ( 20 April – 20 May ) )–This period may see you being rewarded for your efforts in some real way.  The project may be complete, or maybe it’s the end of the contract, but you will be adequately compensated for your efforts and for a job well done. Domestic stability, maternal care, reassurance, prosperity would be there in the life. Achievement of goals and growth, fertility and security would be felt.  Take this time to enjoy your achievements because very soon a new phase will be begin. If you’re single, get out there and meet new people as this could be a very rewarding period for you.  If you’re already in a relationship, watch as your relationship hits new heights. Favourable Dates: Dec 3 Favourable Colors: White & Red.

Gemini ( 21 May – 20 June ) -. There may be minor irritations but with great mental agility and inner resources they would be overcome. Relentless hard work will be needed if success is to be achieved. Surmounting obstacles through diplomacy and tact rather than force would be the key to success. Nostalgic memories will play a strong role .Your emotional past, old connections, ex lovers, old friends – all of these may be resurfacing to influence your future. Other times, you might revisit your past to understand yourself better and learn what you need to do now. If romance is more interesting to you, you will get the lover you deserve, or that a future admirer would be particularly charming. Favourable Dates ; Dec 2  Favourable Colors : White, Blue, Purple & Red.

Cancer ( 21 June – 22 July ) You are  still in touch with your esoteric roots and can be a sign that you need to listen to your inner voice as much as the outer clamour around you. So, if you have a task to complete, a promotion to nab or someone to impress, you have everything you need to get the job done. In committed relationships, the communication side of a relationship would be particularly strong. When you need to make a choice regarding a relationship, such as whether to commit or move on this period will guide you to take the right decision. If you are single, you could be moving to find a special someone. Favourable Dates ; Dec 5 Favourable Colors : White  & Brown.

Leo  ( 23 July – 22 August ) You have made an art of being defensive, probably for the best of reasons and you need to let down you barriers a little. It is also possible that you have been repressing your feelings. Forthrightness and honesty is required. Gut feelings and sheer instinct are to be relied upon at this time. Listen to that inner voice and to your dreams – intuition will guide you now. You will have a good instinct for which way you need to go and what you need to and don’t be surprised if you suddenly come up with the perfect process or solution to make your job easier. This is the  time of being found attractive by others. Favourable Dates :  Dec 2 Favourable Colors : White  & Brown.

Virgo ( 23 August – 22 September )  This period indicates happiness and success and bodes well financially. You have worked hard and it is now time to enjoy the fruits of your labour. You should be feeling secure and satisfied, both financially and in your environment.This may also indicate a lasting, loving relationship, though.  it may also indicate someone who’ll assist you with fulfilling your career aspirations. Much more responsibility is coming your way and you have to learn how to handle it – whilst remembering not to take everything so seriously. You will heal and connect with others, giving them a gift of hope and helping yourself in the process. Favourable Dates: Dec 3 Favourable Colors : Purple & Black

Libra ( 23 September – 22 October ) – There would be lasting, loving relationship, though, it may also indicate someone who’ll assist you with fulfilling your career aspirations. Maintain your focus and determination at this time.  Now is the time to draw on your years of experience and wisdom to craft an executable plan that will yield the tangible results you desire.  If finances happen to be held up right now because of someone else’s decisions, the time is almost here. The situation financially is going to get better. If you happen to be committed, both of you might need more space. If you continue the search, it could be here for you soon. Favourable Dates:  Dec 2 : Yellow & Green.

Scorpio ( 23 October – 21 November ) – Your skills will be tested to the absolute limit and you’ll have to show real determination, otherwise your existence will continue to stagnate. You’re an ambitious individual, though goals will only be achieved when you show willpower. You want to move forward too quickly or you are feeling pressure from someone to do just that. Do your best work, and ignore how others might see you.  Refusing to give up, showing focus and accepting that you have the same flaws as other people will allow you to complete any challenge that you set for yourself. All around, work is moving forward and stable. Favourable Dates ; Dec  5 Favourable Colors : Blue & Brown.

Sagittarius( 22 November -21 December ) – This period will endow you with the energy and enthusiasm to start a new venture or project, and have the optimism to be quite bold in your actions.  Only mastery of the current task will allow you to move up to the next level. This could be a period of hard work where you may be learning something new. You could be assigned a project or given a task to do, and you will have to devote some of your time to see that project ends successfully. Take pride in your work and give it your best. You will have to remain focussed on your goals. Committed relationships will become deeper and meaningful. Favourable Dates : Dec 1 Favourable Colors : Blue & Brown

Capricorn ( 22 December – 19 January ) – This would be a period of emotional growth, an abundance of positive emotions and new beginnings. Your cup may be over flowing with love and happiness. You are likely to have a desire to try out lots of different approaches to spirituality to see how they “fit.”. Follow your dreams, but do not let them become an obsession. Develop your imagination, and let it guide you, but never let it rule you or lead you to ruin.

This time could show the beginning of a new love or emotionally positive situation. Favourable Dates : Dec 4 Favourable Colors : Yellow & Red.

Aquarius ( 20 January – 18 February ) –  If you are confident and bold in the use of your creative energy success would come. Your plans and perseverance have been noticed and you are on your way up.   Work from the heart, listen to your gut and develop your intuition. You would show intelligence, with brilliant communication skills, and never at a loss for words. You would be reliable and hardworking, willing to do anything to realise your financial goals. Planning and long-term achievement would be established along with success in the constraints of corporate life. Glow with the vitality of the Sun whose light is unmatched and whose power is absolute.  Favourable Dates: Dec 1  Favourable Colors : Yellow & Red.

Pisces ( 19 February – 20 March ) –.Your mind is filled with rich ideas and you have an uncanny ability to connect with people right now. When it appears, you are likely welcoming a time in your life where you are reconnecting to your subconscious mind, through dreams, symbols and strange coincidences. You will need to create the necessary balance between the physical and spiritual worlds, to create harmony and understanding. Allow the ideas coming to you to settle in gently. Positive affirmations are important and will benefit you. Some experienced person can manifest in your life as a friend, teacher, spiritual leader or mentor and will care intently about guiding you to another level.  Favourable Dates : Dec 5 Favourable Colors : White & Red

Le jugement entérinant la transaction a été rendu et cette vente devrait se concrétiser au cours des prochains jours.

Raymond Chabot, qui a été nommée séquestre afin de trouver un acheteur potentiel, a recommandé au tribunal l’offre de l’entreprise Serres Sagami. « Il s’agit évidemment pour nous d’une acquisition grandement stratégique qui nous permettra de consolider notre présence dans l’industrie serricole au Québec. Cette marque emblématique fait partie du patrimoine agricole québécois et mérite de demeurer présente sur la table des Québécois”, a déclaré M. Roy

Les activités de Savoura pourront donc se dérouler normalement et aucune réorganisation de personnel n’est envisagée. En ce qui a trait à la production, M. Roy a déclaré qu’une production de concombres anglais de marque Savoura, destinée aux chaînes d’alimentation et aux distributeurs, s’ajoutera prochainement à la production de tomates.

Canadian Pacific Holiday Train ready to rock the rails for a good cause

In Writing (all kinds) on November 26, 2015 at 6:31 PM

CALGARY, Nov. 26, 2015 /CNW/ – The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train program is ready to go for its 17th year, bringing with it food, cash donations and awareness to local food banks and food shelves across North America.

The two brightly lit trains – a U.S. train and a Canadian train – kick off their tours in the Montreal area on November 27 and 28 on their way to visit approximately 150 communities. The Canadian Train travels west across Canada finishing its journey in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. The US Train visits communities in Quebec, New York, and Southern Ontario prior to travelling across the U.S. Northeast and Midwest, returning to Canada for its final shows in Saskatchewan and Alberta.

Each Holiday Train event features performances by professional musicians that include holiday-themed songs. There’s no charge to attend a Holiday Train show, but patrons are asked to bring a cash or non-perishable food donation. All money and food raised in a community stays there to help those in need locally. Again this year, legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Jim Cuddy will be on the Canadian train, this time joining his son, Devin.

“The Holiday Train is an amazing expression of old-timey Canadian joy,” said Cuddy, who was given the Order of Canada by Governor General David Johnston earlier this month. “To be on board an old, refurbished train and traveling through the nooks and crannies of this country is an awe-inspiring experience. As we pull into towns and cities along the way, we also see all the people assembled to celebrate and who are filled with the Christmas spirit – it is an incredible experience for those of us on the train.”

Also on the train is Montreal/Winnipeg band Chic Gamine who will play all the shows in Quebec, offering Francophone performances. Holiday Train veteran and award-winning country singer Kelly Prescott with Devin Cuddy and CP’s famed Holiday Train band will then take the stage for the rest of the Canadian Train’s tour before Jim Cuddy joins for the final leg.

The U.S. Train will showcase one of Canada’s brightest country music stars in Kira Isabella, who was recently named by CBC as one of Canada’s top 25 artists under 25. Isabella, who won the 2013 Canadian Country Music Association “Female Artist of the Year”, will rock the stage with chart topping jack-of-all-trades Wes Mack, until the Doc Walker country legends come aboard in Chicago.

“I look forward to another great experience on the CP Holiday Train and am excited to engage with fans in person and on social media as we go from place to place,” said Isabella. “The CP Holiday Train is such a unique and amazing experience, benefitting people in need at this most important time of the year.”

Each year, fans of the Holiday Train follow its journey over social media, posting spectacular images of the trains in various cities and landscapes. Those who take photos of the train, holiday entertainment and the spirit of giving are encouraged to enter the “Capture the Spirit” photo contest for the chance to win an exclusive ride on next year’s train. Details about the contest are available on theHoliday Train Facebook page.

The online schedule is now live at and lists which performers are stopping where and when.

To help make this year the best yet for local food banks, the Holiday Train asks fans new and old to follow the train on social media, invite their friends and family and spread the message about the importance of heart-healthy donations by using #HealthyDonations.

Aries ( 22 November -21 December )  – You are feeling particularly affectionate now and the company of your love partner or very close friends is important to you. This is not a time for solitary activity. Sharing, harmonizing, and love are the themes now. However, if you are not happy in your personal life, your problems may seem especially pressing at this time.Try to be receptive and learn as much as you can from others at this time. Also, mental curiosity or restlessness impels you to get out and about, perhaps take a short trip or visit. Favorable Date : Nov 26 Favorable Colors: Red & Green

Taurus ( 20 April – 20 May )– If you feel short-changed by life, or that you’re not getting your due, and love or work aren’t fulfilling, then it’s time to work hard for your own self-esteem. It’s not about giving away your freedom, but liberating others from rigid thinking or patterns of behaviour. Start to analyse why you say, think, act and do what you do. Learn to develop your positive outlook and take responsibility for your actions, rather than blaming colleagues, society or the system. Throw yourself into the creative or imaginative arts, and stop trying to pass the buck. Favorable Date : Nov 28  Favorable Color : Blue

Gemini ( 19 February – 20 March ) – Through friends you may have reason to rejoice. Your relationships are especially affectionate and friendly at this time, and you may benefit socially or materially through an opportunity offered to you by a friend. Indeed, you may think today’s real success comes through ensuring that someone does his job well and so ensures that someone who matters a great deal to you, gets something he needs. An unusual encounter could occur too – introducing you to a world about which you know little but whose complexity is fascinating. Favorable Date : Nov  28 Favorable Colors : Yellow & Blue

Cancer( 21 June – 22 July ) – You seem poised to take proactive action in career, emotional and domestic matters. Your bearing and willingness to draw people together could put you ‘in charge. ‘The urge to prove you’re the right person for a job requires accessing all available energy resources. You might even persuade a lover or younger friend to help you out.. It might also bring you admiration from someone who’s shy – but would dearly like to know you better. Determination to see things done your way could demand employing a charm offensive – for which you’re in just the right mood. Favorable Date : Nov 28  Favorable Colors : White & Blue

Leo  ( 23 July – 22 August )  – Deep-rooted passions are likely to be switched on – and possibly by someone you’ve either known for ages and who’s just reappeared, or by a hobby you had as a child.  You’re being over-sensitive. Silences could leave you puzzled. Indeed, talking and sharing ideas could be a big theme midweek – most notably with people who’re expansive and optimistic by nature. You should be ready to throw yourself wholeheartedly into a project that’s exciting, rejuvenating and, best of all, keeps you in close contact with people you admire.Favorable Date : Nov28 Favorable Colors : Cream & Red

Virgo ( 23 August – 22 September ) – Financial complications could leave your head swimming. An older person’s advice could be invaluable. A task may have become too big or complicated: You might now need the help of someone who’s totally detached. Your inner voice may be trying to make itself heard – particularly with regard to who and what makes you feel truly happy. At a slightly different level, your design and creative skills could surface.You are settling into a rhythm that’s both comfortable and productive. Favorable Date : Nov  25 Favorable Colors : Red & Purple

Libra ( 23 September – 22 October )- You could experience one of your ‘retreating moments’. You might need time on your own – or at least only in the company of those who don’t make too many demands. It’s probable that you’re incubating a great idea. Intrusions are likely to come from people whose emotional states are wobbly to say the least and who sense you’ll empathise. It might surprise you that so many people want to engage on a one-to-one level. From business to romance and back again, this could lead to a busy week.

Here are the Top 10 reasons why pot should remain illegal (but oh, oh, oh…there are soooo many more reasons than just these):

  1. It kills brain cells
  2. It is addictive
  3. People are allergic to it
  4. It contributes to mental illness/psychosis
  5. It promotes bad behaviour
  6. You cannot be high and drive properly – unlike cigarettes
  7. Driving while high is driving under the influence or impaired driving…there would be more cases in the court of impaired driving due to marijuana use
  8. Linked to number 4…there would be more people, particularly young people in and out of hospital and being diagnosed with a mental illness due to marijuana use
  9. There is a good reason why it has been illegal for all of this time – it is not good for you unless used for medicinal purposes
  10. The government just wants to make money off all these stupid people who smoke pot! Just stop smoking that illegal garbage to begin with.

BLACK AT UOFT: Solidarity Action for Mizzou‏

In Writing (all kinds) on November 17, 2015 at 6:54 PM

The Centre for Women¹s Studies in Education is supporting the Black at UofT: Solidarity Action for Mizzou

What are the experiences of Black undergrads, grad students, faculty and staff at the University of Toronto? What does anti-Black racism look like within this institution?

With #BlackOnCampus events happening across university and college campuses nationally and internationally, black students and our allies in staff and faculty at the University of Toronto are coming together to challenge the anti-black racism within this institution. We stand in solidarity with black students across the united states that are in protest, currently experiencing anti-black racist violence and death threats by white supremacist groups on their campus for fighting back against the multiple forms of violence they experience daily for being black. From Toronto to Mizzou, we stand with you.

Date: Wednesday, Nov. 18th

Time: 11-1pm
Where: Meet in front of HartHouse

Our solidarity action will begin with a march throughout campus and end with a rally.


Feel free to bring banners and posters, with your messages of resistance and solidarity! We encourage you to share your stories with the#BeingBlackAtUofT hashtag! If you are a photographer/videographer, please come out and document!

FOR UTSC STUDENTS: Buses will be leaving for Hart House at 9:45am, and returning to the Scarborough Campus by 2pm. Please meet in front of the Old Gym.

We will not back down until the UofT Administration responds to our list of demands to address the systemic anti-blackness in this university.

Our Demands:
1. Stop the funding freeze to the Transitional Year Program. Increase its funding and provide it with standalone, autonomous space and the recognition it deserves as a pioneering program gifted to the University of Toronto from the Black community. The Transitional Year Program has helped hundreds of students over the years, and the systematic erasure of the program by the administration is shameful

2. Address the underrepresentation of Black administrators, faculty and teaching staff with the goal of increases the percentage of black faculty and staff members on all three campuses at least 5 (five) percent by 2017-18. One of the primary experiences students referenced was a frustration at never seeing themselves represented amongst even our teaching assistants, let alone their faculty and administration. This lack of representation, even in programs where we would expect to be represented. This is a major issue that the University of Toronto should investigate and seek to address, in the same manner as would be done if this was an issue of gender.

3. Intentionally address the underrepresentation of Black students, especially in professional programs and graduate programs. While the university often uses our images to promote itself as a diverse campus, our presence on campus is disproportionately small, especially in very expensive programs. You should begin by collecting census data, so that we can accurately assess and effectively address the issue. You should also create a strategic plan to increase retention rates for marginalized students, sustain diversity curriculum and training, and promote a more safe and inclusive campus by 2016-17.

4. Develop a two year plan to establish, adequately fund and support a standalone African & Caribbean Studies Department. Despite Canada¹s history with respect to enslavement, the benefits Canada received as a result of enslavement, the establishment of Black communities, Canada¹s continued direct involvement in the economics and politics of the Caribbean, Canada¹s role as a one of the most popular destinations for diasporic migrants of African descent, there is very little support given to the existing undergraduate African Studies and Caribbean Studies programs. Even more egregiously, there are no such programs in existence at the graduate level; an omission we doubt could occur with other regions of the world and be ignored in assessments of UofT¹s rankings.

5. Establish mandatory equity training for all faculty, students, governors, and all other administrative bodies. This entails mandatory anti-oppression training for all persons employed by the University, and an equity breadth requirement for all students.

In love, rage and solidarity,
Black family at UofT

[TPS] – Know Your Rights at the Door

In Writing (all kinds) on November 9, 2015 at 1:52 PM

Aggressive and questionable door-to-door water heater sales tactics have become a problem throughout
Toronto. As an informed homeowner, you should know that Enbridge, Direct Energy and government
agencies do NOT promote the exchange of water heaters door-to-door. If someone does come to your
door to service your water heater without an appointment, chances are they are there to make money by
getting you to sign a new contract.

In the event that you’re approached by a door-to-door water heater salesperson, here’s a list of DOs and DON’Ts to help you protect yourself from being a victim of fraud.


1. Always ask the salesperson for identification and which company they represent.
2. Get additional expert opinions or estimates from your water heater provider when door-to-door
salespeople assert that a replacement product is needed.
3. Ask the salesperson if you can receive a copy of their sales material or contact information to
review. Be wary if the salesperson is hesitant of leaving behind such information.
4. If you feel pressured, ask the salesperson to leave. If you feel threatened, ask them to leave and
call the police if they do not immediately comply.


1. Don’t let the salesperson into your home.
2. Don’t show the salesperson your existing contract, monthly bills or any personal information.
3. Don’t sign a contract until you have read it carefully and understand it thoroughly.
4. Don’t sign a contract if it fails to explain that, under Ontario’s Consumer Protection Act, you can cancel a contract within 10 days of receiving a written copy of the agreement without incurring a
penalty of any kind.
5. Don’t be influenced by “too good to be true” offers.
