Canadians tend to be nicer than Americans — more candor, less snark. There’s some exceptions , but then there’s Canadians like Ontario’s Angela Liddon, Oh She Glows blogger and author of the “Oh She Glows Cookbook.” From lentil walnut loaf to peanut butter cookie dough bites, her recipes are not only plant-based, they’re proof “you can have decadent foods and be healthy at the same time — it doesn’t have to be one or the other.” For Liddon, that wasn’t always the case

It’s often said that Buddhism is built on two core principles – wisdom and compassion. On intensive meditation retreats, I spend most of my time engaged in wisdom-based practice, with mindfulness at the root.

If You Think Tom Hardy Shouldn’t Have Been Asked About His Sexuality, You’re Dead Wrong. Here’s Why.
Earlier this week a reporter from a queer Canadian publication caused controversy — and outrage — when he asked Tom Hardy about his sexuality during a Toronto International Film Festival press conference for the actor’s new film “Legend.” Hardy, who in 2008 candidly stated that he experimented with other guys when he was younger but found gay sex “did nothing for him,” quickly shut down the interview after refusing to answer the “disrespectful” question.

Carlos Izquierdoz tuvo una tarde de pesadilla la noche de ayer durante el partido de Santos vs Xolos, en dos ocasiones le sangraron la nariz… corría el minuto 20 del primer tiempo, al defensa santista Carlos Izquierdoz se le ocurrió la genial idea de detener el avance Xoloitzcuintle tirandole una barrida por detrás al capitán Javier Gandolfi. El argentino, muy conocido por blandito, no se iba a quedar de brazos cruzados mientras recibía la barrida, al caer le dejo un recuerdito a Carlos Izquierdoz y le rompe el tabique nasal, el futbolista de Santos como todo buen guerrero, regreso inmediatamente a la cancha pero solo para ser recibido con tremendo balonazo en el rostro! Obviamente su nariz, convertida en fuente de sangre, se abrió nuevamente y obligo los médicos a trabajar sobre su nariz nuevamente y claro, puntos extras para el utilero que no solamente tuvo las camisas listas sino que ademas fue a imprimir otra camisa con el numero de Carlos Izquierdoz, digo por si se volvía a necesitar… Puedes ver el video en la pagina de ESPN

The move would be an about-face for the Waterloo, Ontario-based company, which had shunned Android in a bet that its BlackBerry 10 line of phones would be able to claw back market share lost to Apple’s iPhone and a slew of devices powered by Android. The sources, who asked not to be named as they have not been authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said the move to use Android is part of BlackBerry’s strategy to pivot to focus on software and device management
