[5 Dec 2013 | Comments Off on Season’s Greetings? | ]

With the temperatures dropping and the Christmas music playing in department stores, it is that time of the year again. The yearly debate and controversy surrounding what term do we say or put up on display is upon us. Nowadays, the politically correct term to use this time of the year is “Happy Holidays” or “Seasons Greetings” rather than “Merry Christmas.”
The signs are all around us, literally. More and more department stores are using “Happy Holidays” banners. The reason why? Saying “Merry Christmas” celebrates the Christian religion and excludes people …

[5 Dec 2013 | Comments Off on Keeping Christ in Christmas | ]

When you walk up to the counter at a shop and pay for your gift, does the salesperson usually say “Happy Holidays!” or “Merry Christmas?”
With each passing holiday season, it seems as though fewer and fewer people are saying Merry Christmas. Is this because nobody celebrates Christmas anymore, or because we are so afraid to offend someone that we are pushing our own personal beliefs aside?
The reason that this season is titled the holiday season is because there are several different traditional celebrations that occur in December, many of which …

[5 Dec 2013 | Comments Off on Domestic or Import? | ]

This is it: the argument that plagues car forums and comment threads. It seems that you either have to take one side or the other. “Hey, buddy, which are you? Import or domestic?” Why do you have to choose? You don’t. In my opinion, this whole “choose a side” business is to the car scene what peer pressuring kids to smoke in middle school was. It’s stupid, you look stupid, and you probably smell.
Growing up, I wasn’t forced to choose. My parents were and still are awesome in so many …

[29 Nov 2013 | Comments Off on Enough Ford, already | ]

I’m sick of hearing about Rob Ford.
I realize that’s an unpopular position – he’s basically the Lindsay Lohan of Canada, and people love them some celebrity gossip. I also realize that I’m a member of the media and I should be relishing this opportunity for an easy story idea, or to continue to pit Hamilton against Toronto in the battle of superiority.
Here’s why I’m sick of the media coverage of Ford’s shenanigans: he makes Canada look terrible. No offense to our neighbours to the south, but they don’t know a …

[28 Nov 2013 | Comments Off on Bad hair days? Or bad attitudes? | ]

If anyone knows who I am, they will know right away that I love hair. I love to style my hair in any way possible. Name almost any style and I have probably rocked it over the years. I love the fact that I can wear my hair in any form. With that being said, I think that sometimes it’s hard to believe that beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.
I read a recent article called Another Day, Another Natural Hair Ban: Vanessa VanDyke Asked To Cut Her …

Hey, you! Yes, you. I’m on to you– I know where you surreptitiously disappear to when you think nobody’s looking. What’s the big deal, anyway?  Everybody does it. Going to the bathroom is a universal thing.
Well, that’s where you’re wrong. Using the accessible washrooms (the huge ones featuring wheelchair signs, support bars, and other equipment) when you don’t need them is ignorant.
Mohawk College has over forty washrooms on campus. Jennifer Jahnke, the college’s Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act project coordinator, says she doesn’t know the exact number of accessible washrooms …

[21 Nov 2013 | Comments Off on The Thigh Gap Controversy | ]

Plus-sized model Robyn Lawley recently wrote a response letter in The Daily Beast to hundreds of critics, concerning a photo of her in a corset. Critics called her fat, hefty, and a pig, as the picture proved that she was lacking something that most models have: a gap between her thighs.
In an article written by Maggie Driver of the Daily Wildcat in Arizona, a Psych Services councillor named Laura Orlich states that not all women are anatomically conditioned to be able to develop a thigh gap. Lawley reiterates this fact, …
