FEATURE ARTICLE Five Ways To Shine As A Professional Writer By Dana Blozis With the growth of social media and marketing techniques like online article marketing, it seems that everyone is a writer of one sort or another. In fact, I've read a handful of articles that assure the reading public that anyone can write. While this may be technically true, those of us who write for a living know that it isn't as easy as it sounds. There is much more to the craft than meets the eye. Read More

TORONTO, Ontario – November 17, 2009 – H1N1 is here and causing havoc at home and in the office. Ensuring employees can remain productive by working from home is a critical piece of any business continuity plan. Health Canada suggests that as many as 35 per cent of Canadians could become ill during the H1N1 pandemic. They recommend that if you feel at all sick or are infectious (with H1N1 this can be up to ten days after the onset of symptoms) you should stay home. Add to this time needed to tend to children who are sent home due to illness or school closures, and employees feeling well enough to work could be out of the office for days or weeks leaving offices understaffed and productivity down.

I have discovered the glories of the Toronto Public Library thanks to my sister.
I have been able to expand my musical tastes by borrowing CDs, as well as read some of the most interesting and intriguing books thanks to the Toronto Public Library. If I had only really understood the power of the library when I was doing my graduate work at Concordia University in Montreal, I would have saved a lot of money on buying books. Of course, there are always books you want to own and I do not regret all of the books I have bought.
Not only is the TPL good for getting books, CDs, ebooks, and videos, it is also good for exploring the city of Toronto for free. On Sunday, I went to the Textile Museum thanks to the MAPs that the TPL give out. I have also been to the Bata Shoe Museum, as well as the AGO thanks to these MAPs. These MAPs are free passes to enter the museums and art galleries with two adults and I believe about two children. They currently have some that expire on December 31st. It is a great way to spend some affordable and quality time with friends and family.
During my visits to some of these galleries and museums, I have also rediscovered my own interest in art. I have bought oil pastels that I used to create a nature scene picture, as well as a tabletop easel on a different occasion and canvas. Now, I am inspired to have most of the artwork in my living room be my own.
The Toronto Public Library is fantastic and I hope you discover your local one, or the reference one today. Keep in mind that the libraries on the college and university campuses are also fantastic too.

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 did not know how to dress. I wore a beige cotton knit ensemble with my black winter jacket curled over my arm. I was also wearing the burgundy slightly padded bra I got for Christmas from my sister. The old man had touched more foam than flesh.
