Comments are off for this post.
Image: pixabay In 2017, the “entrepreneurial bug” is prolific. For those bitten by it, there is nothing more invigorating than the seed of a successful business idea. But in our startup-saturated society, with an abundance of businesses that promise to disrupt everything from the daily commute to dental floss, the truth is that only a small percentage of companies ultimately make the cut. When it comes down to it, entrepreneurship is hard — and reaching the upper echelons of success requires a serendipitous cocktail of dedication, passion, people, and sometimes, a little bit of plain luck. The right advice is […]

Larry David to Lisa Simpson life lessons from TV’s top role models

Comments are off for this post.
From eight-year-old Mensa members to smeghead slobs and dolls-house-loving detectives, here are the small-screen idols who have taught us everything Larry David, Curb Your Enthusiasm There arent many moments in Curb Your Enthusiasm when Larry David could be described as heroic. Two stand out though. Theres the time he conducts a Wagner-playing orchestra outside an enemys house who despises the German composer; the other is when he saves the blushes of a chef with Tourettes syndrome by leading a restaurant in a rousing swear-a-thon. Its hardly Jon Snow taming the White Walkers, but Larry David isnt your typical TV idol. […]

‘We stand to wipe out a whole era’: how the 1970s could vanish from Vancouver

Comments are off for this post.
The Empire Landmark Hotel is the latest brutalist icon set to be demolished in a frenzy of property speculation. Is it wrong to destroy an entire decade? For nearly 40 years from his vantage point at the top of the Empire Landmark Hotel, Yunus Khan has watched Vancouver grow up. You would barely recognise it, he says of the city as it looked when he took his first job at the hotel, doing maintenance. Beyond the 42nd-storey window, the jagged silhouette of the North Shore mountains, the lush surprise of Stanley Park, and the cobalt passage of Burrard Inlet are […]

Prominent Democrats refuse to back Bernie Sanders’ single-payer healthcare bill

Comments are off for this post.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) declined to join onto Sanders’ single-payer healthcare bill, telling reporters she is instead focused on the continued efforts by Republicans to repeal, or repeal and replace, the Affordable Care Act. Pelosi opted not to join several prominent Democrats in joining Sanders’ bill, which has become something of a litmus test for potential 2020 presidential candidates. Meanwhile, some big names like Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), former vice presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine (D-V.A.) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) have not supported the plan. Long term care would not be covered under Sanders’ proposal but […]

Should You Really Eat Ice Cream For Breakfast?

Comments are off for this post.
Here’s some news that will be as unsurprising to you as it will be utterly delightful: Eating ice cream for breakfast apparently gives you a significant boost to your mental performance and your alertness. On the face of it, though, this seems like a no-brainer. Only monsters dislike ice cream, and if we could, we’d eat it as often as possible. We know this would be bad for us, but what if we had a little for breakfast instead? Isn’t that better than just boring toast? It’d certainly put a sugary spring in our step, so to speak. However, after […]

Comments are off for this post.
Now here’s a story that’s guaranteed to make you smile. Earlier this year, the only local library in Somerville, VA was nearly forced to close its doors due to lack of funding. But Somerville residents decided not to sit back and let that happen: Instead they came together to save the library with coins from their private stashes of Nazi gold. Incredible! Talk about the power of community. In April, multiple electrical issues and a leaky roof made the Somerville Library unsafe for public use, and Somerville officials voted to shut it down rather than use more of the town’s […]
