    At time of writing, exactly one federal party leader has publicly condemned what is now a quite astonishing church-burning epidemic in Indigenous communities in four provinces. In a tweet on Monday, Conservative leader Erin O’Toole called it “appalling,” which it surely is at a bare minimum.

    The problem isn’t remote working – it’s clinging to office-based practices

    There have been few moments in the history of work as pivotal as the one we find ourselves in now. It took a pandemic to normalise remote working, and, despite the fears of many CEOs, most organisations saw no demonstrable loss of productivity. Now, the global workforce is demanding its right to retain the autonomy it gained through increased flexibility as societies open up again. Pre-pandemic, it was not uncommon for an employer to ask staff to justify their need to work from home. Post-pandem...

    Great apes predicted to lose 90% of homelands in Africa, study finds

    Great apes – humanity’s closest relatives, are predicted to lose a “devastating” 90% of their homelands in Africa in coming decades, according to a study. All gorillas, chimpanzees and bonobos are already endangered or critically endangered. But a combination of the climate crisis, the destruction of wild areas for minerals, timber and food, and human population growth is on track to decimate their ranges by 2050, the scientists said.

Scars are part of life, or at least that’s what we’ve been led to believe, and it’s the human body’s way of forming a barrier between the wound and the dirty outside world.
