Old Story Idea for CBC’s “Outfront”

In Media Writing, Writing (all kinds) on September 16, 2016 at 3:00 AM

My name is Donna Kakonge, and I am 31-years-old. I grew up in Toronto, but my father is from Uganda and my mother is from St. Vincent in the Caribbean. I want to do a piece about my great-uncle, who now lives in Toronto. He lived in Barbados for most of his life practising medicine. Though he lived far away, my great-uncle has always had a presence in my life. Especially now that he has Alzheimer’s disease. Only at the good moments can he remember all the wonderful achievements he has made in his life, but his words and his good deeds have always been part of my memories to this day. I must admit spending time with him now makes me uncomfortable because he is so different from his former bold self. Learning to handle these things gracefully is part of growing up and understanding that there is an end to everything and everyone.

http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/kakonged?searchTerms=Young

This research fills the gaps in the literature surrounding the career aspirations of Black female high school students in Canada. The literature surrounds five key factors regarding career aspirations, educational programs that help young Black females to succeed in high school, the portrayal of Black women in the media and the history of Black women and work. The conceptual framework is based on four key concepts of spirit, motivation, self-esteem and identity. The methodology of this research is based on qualitative narrative case studies of 10 student participants, three parents and eight community members. Along with the qualitative narrative case study approach, a culturally holistic approach to data collection are included.  In order to build on the gaps in the research on Black female high school students’ career aspirations, I focus on three major research questions. What are the challenges that are faced by the student participants in order to succeed during and after high school? Linking with the first question, what are the self-help strategies the student participants use to facilitate their roads to success in and out of high school? Finally, what and where are the community supports for young Black females and their career aspirations through arts-focused community centres?  There are also three sub-questions associated with the three major research questions. The first is, what support are they getting from their families to meet their career goals? The second is, what does this mean to us as educators? The third is, what is the significance of this research as it links to the conceptual framework? Read the rest of this entry »

SICO Paint unveils three simple steps to a beautiful, long-lasting deck

In Beauty, book reviews, Business, cars, Contact Information, Creative Writing, Culture, Disability, Education, Entertainment, Environment, Events, Health, Home Decor, Living, Media Writing, Movie Reviews, Music, Opinion, Pets, Radio Podcasts, Religion, Restaurant Reviews, Sports, Technology, travel, Uncategorized, Video Work, Writing (all kinds) on January 6, 2016 at 3:00 AM

No Stain, No Gain
SICO Paint unveils three simple steps to a beautiful, long-lasting deck

LONGUEUIL, Quebec, June 23, 2015 – It’s no secret that Canadians savour summer, sparing little expense to beautify their backyard living spaces after a harsh winter. When it comes to creating a long-lasting lavish outdoor décor, it all starts with a properly-stained and well-protected deck, according to leading paint brand SICO® paint.

“Outdoor living continues to be a strong trend as more and more people extend their indoor décor outside, adding everything from furniture to kitchens to accessories,” said Mathieu Hamel, assistant brand manager for Sico paint, a brand of PPG Architectural Coatings. “The richness of a wooden deck is a perfect backdrop for a stylish and welcoming outdoor space that will both provide a relaxing haven and wow your guests.”

Before embarking on a deck-staining project, however, Hamel cautioned that in order to protect your investment for the long term, it is important to adhere to a proper plan. He recommended following these three steps to guarantee professional-looking, enduring results:

1. Product and colour selection: Decide what look you would like to achieve. If the wood on your deck is worn and you want to hide it, but still keep its texture, a solid stain is the way to go. If you’d like both the wood grain and texture to show through, a semi-transparent stain or translucent wood finish is the product to use. When using a semi-transparent stain or translucent wood finish, remember that the type of wood used for your deck will affect the colour outcome. For example, a yellow-toned stain will look different on red cedar than on treated pinewood, which has a green tinge. Keep in mind that the wood hardness and porosity, as well as the amount of wood stain applied, may alter the colour as well, so test the stain on a small piece of the wood or in an inconspicuous area before starting.

2. Preparation: How you prepare the surfaces to be stained will make or break your project. Start by removing any wood fibres, dirt and contaminants from your deck using a high-quality exterior wood cleaner. Allow the wood to dry slightly, brush away loosened debris and rinse with a pressure washer. Next, tighten any loose screws, scrape away bits of flaking wood and sand all surfaces. For easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, Sico paint has launched a how-to video that walks homeowners through the entire staining process in just five minutes. Accessed at http://www.sico.ca, the video is full of tips on surface preparation and how to achieve best results when staining.

3. Application: To give your exterior wood maximum richness and depth, select a top-quality product, and know that less is more when it comes to applying stain. Never use more than two coats in order to ensure the stain adheres to the shape of the wood without cracking or peeling. Always use a brush instead of a roller, so you get into all the nooks and crannies of your deck. If you prefer to stand while staining, simply apply an extension pole to your brush. Always brush in the same direction as the wood grain, moving from unstained to stained wood. If more than one person is doing the staining, assign each person a separate section of the project to ensure consistency with technique and even colour application. When staining a deck, for example, have one person work on the main surface and another on the steps or vertical beams.

No matter how eager you are to be done, it’s important to wait the prescribed drying time, Hamel said. Typically, stains require up to 24 hours to dry in clear weather.
He emphasized that before starting any staining project, it is critical to carefully read the application instructions on the product being used.

Sico paint offers a broad range of staining products in a variety of colours and finishes, including Sico Solid Wood Stain, Sico Semi-transparent Wood Stain, Sico Translucent Wood Finish and Sico Semi-transparent Wood Protector.

Top Mistakes People Make When Choosing Paint Colour: Dulux Paints

In Beauty, book reviews, Business, cars, Contact Information, Creative Writing, Culture, Disability, Education, Entertainment, Environment, Events, Health, Home Decor, Living, Media Writing, Movie Reviews, Music, Opinion, Pets, Radio Podcasts, Religion, Restaurant Reviews, Sports, Technology, travel, Uncategorized, Video Work, Writing (all kinds) on January 5, 2016 at 3:00 AM

TORONTO, June 11, 2015 – Does the thought of choosing a paint colour turn you yellow with fear? You’re not alone, according to leading paint brand Dulux Paints. Feedback from employees at the brand’s 250 stores across the country indicates that paint colour selection is the biggest challenge consumers face when undertaking a paint project.

“When it comes to paint colour, many people are so afraid of change that they end up sticking with the same colours for years,” said Martin Tustin-Fuchs, brand manager, Dulux Paints. “Yet, all they often need is a bit of guidance to get out of their colour rut and adopt a more current look for their living spaces.”

According to Dulux Paints, here are the top five mistakes people make when choosing paint colour and how to avoid them:

1. Choosing a paint colour out of context. Contrary to popular belief, taping a small swatch to a wall won’t help you choose the right colour for your room. Instead, examine paint chips against furniture, rugs, accessories, countertops and other items in the room, making sure to test the colours in direct, indirect and artificial light at all times of day.

2. Playing it safe with neutrals. Neutral paint colours tend to be a popular choice, yet there are times when a more saturated colour may bring out the best in a room. A good way to introduce some colour to your walls is to apply the “new neutrals” – whites, beiges or greys that are infused with a small amount of colour such as lilac, sage or blue. Choose new-trend neutrals that coordinate well with your furniture or a favourite accessory. You can also take a neutral room up a notch by painting an accent wall a deeper shade of the wall colour or a more vibrant, coordinating colour.

3. Going with the same old, same old. Just like an old pair of jeans or out-of-date hairstyle, it’s easy to get comfortable in your room’s décor. Take a step back, really examine your space and ask: What year is this room stuck in? If the answer dates back at least a decade, it might be time for a change. Adding colour with paint is one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to update a space. You’ll be surprised how a fresh coat of paint will make your furniture and accessories look newer.

4. Fear of using more than one colour. There’s no reason to use only one paint colour on the walls of a room. In fact, using two or even three shades can turn a room from ordinary to extraordinary. A good rule of thumb is to use a base colour in about two-thirds of the room and introduce other colours in smaller quantities. To achieve an elegant, relaxing feel, try a monochromatic colour scheme, with one main colour supported by others from the same colour family. For a harmonious effect, combine colours located beside each other on the colour wheel. To create a dynamic look, choose complementary colours found directly across from one another on the wheel.

5. Failing to consider a room’s function. Will you be playing, sleeping, eating or relaxing in the space to be painted? Make sure you choose your colour accordingly. Yellow, red and orange, as well as soft grey, violet, blue and green, are known to be more conducive to appetite-building, entertaining and conversation, making them good choices for the kitchen and any main-floor living space. Bright red will energize and stimulate kids in a playroom, while cooler blues have a calming, serene effect ideal for a bedroom. Golden yellows and warm apricots tend to flatter any skin tone in a bathroom.

Still not sure what colours to choose? Get inspiration from Dulux Paints’ palette of hot colours for 2015, including Ruby Ring (09YR 11/475) red, Red Badge (30YR 21/505) orange, Golden Harvest (20YY 28/613) yellow, Southern Forest (30GG 33/275) green, Blazer Blue (43BB 09/340) blue, Nostalgic (70RB 11/196) violet or Heron Grey (20YY 37/094) warm neutral.

You can also experiment with different colours using the Dulux Paints Colour Visualizer online at http://www.dulux.ca. The tool enables users to virtually paint sample rooms or use their own uploaded photos to explore colour combinations before picking up a paintbrush. Visitors to the website can also upload photos of their favourite sites or vacation spots, and the software will help recreate the feeling of the image in a room by suggesting a paint palette based on the colours in the photo.

“A change of wall colour is the best and most economical decorating tool out there,” Tustin-Fuchs said. “If your room is stuck in the 1990s, you can bring it forward to 2015 just by swapping out pastel peach and moss green for a more modern palette such as turquoise blue with lime green accents. With paint, the possibilities are endless.”

It’s amazing how life is.

A brewer, using his psychic ability to tell the drinker what lies ahead…
Will he get lucky tonight, will she leave alone again, will they get that promotion?

A married man with three beautiful children, telling you through a torn ligament in his leg while trying to
Exercise it on a Bicycle that it was hurt long ago while he was a soccer star and he’s
Still trying to heal it…

Yes, perhaps I could also heal my broken heart and love again too – just like he could be a
Soccer star again too – on a middle-aged player’s team.

My birthday…children…telling me that my niece has gone crazy because she was dancing, and dancing well.

Yes, perhaps craziness is happiness – if you come back down on the ground from the joy.
Happy Birthday to Everyone I forgot to Say that to This Year – and I also mean the Upcoming Birthdays too.

2015 is going to be mine – gotta hurry up for my dinner date with family.

Thank you God. I am so grateful I could cry.

iTaxiworkers Commend Court Decision Upholding Taxi Reforms

TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2015 /CNW/ – The iTaxiWorkers Association applauds today’s Ontario Superior Court decision upholding taxi industry reforms passed by Toronto city council.

Today’s decision from Superior Court Justice David G. Stinson means that attempts by the Toronto Taxi Alliance to quash the reforms passed in February 2014 have been defeated. The reforms will eliminate the two-tier system within the industry, allowing drivers with Ambassador plates to sell their plates and hire a second driver.

The reforms, including a new licence called the Toronto Taxicab Licence (TTL), will usher in a new era in the city’s taxi industry. The TTL makes a strong case that the industry is moving towards an owner-operated model.

“While we understand the concerns raised by Justice Stinson regarding the mandatory deadline to convert all licences to the Toronto Taxicab Licence by 2024, today’s decision is a welcome victory for drivers who are at the frontline of the industry,” said Sajid Mughal, iTaxiWorkers Association President.

The iTaxiWorkers Association is willing to work with Toronto city council to further discuss the 2024 deadline, Mughal said.
