    Stopping Textbook Tyranny

    September 26th, 2016     by Denise Reich     Comments

    Once upon a time, there was a tradition at the beginning of every college/university term: students would descend on their campus bookstores, syllabi in hand, and walk out with bags full of heavy, expensive textbooks. Maybe they got lucky and found used copies of the books they needed or ran into another student selling their books from last term, which eased the financial burden slightly. Still, they were usually out hundreds of dollars. At the end of the semester, the student would sell their books back to the bookstore, or to others at their school, but they’d only recover a fraction of what they spent. READ MORE

    Take Back The Night 2016

    September 15th, 2016     by deb singh     Comments

    I feel angry. I feel upset. I feel anxious (actually, I haven’t said that last one to Adli yet!) These are statements I make to Adli when I want to express my emotions. I want him - currently as a cisgender boy - to learn to express his feelings, however artificial it may seem at first. I also have been trying to talk about oppression. How do I educate and support the learning of my kid … READ MORE

    Five Shameless Things: Five things you might not know about freelance work

    August 25th, 2016     by Shannon D’Arcy     Comments

    BY: Shannon D’Arcy in conversation with the Urban Worker Project 1. 9-5 jobs are disappearing It might be surprising to know that between 40 and 60% of new jobs in Canada are freelance or contract positions. While traditionally the work week was 9-5, Monday-Friday, in the new economy, shift work, freelance and contract positions will be the new normal. Whereas this means that there isn’t the same safety net for all jobs, it also means that there … READ MORE

    When Transit Gets Trendy

    August 18th, 2016     by Denise Reich     Comments

    My city has been making a concerted effort to improve public transportation. I heartily approve of this. They’ve opened new train lines and revamped bus schedules; they’ve created protected bike paths and busways. Up until recently it’s mostly been ignored by mainstream media and the blogosphere, even though millions of people take mass transit in the region every single day. READ MORE

    Gender, Race and Autism

    August 12th, 2016     by Amelia Henry     Comments

    I have always been separate from others. When I was little, I was content to melt into the corner with a peanut butter sandwich in one hand and a book in the other, oblivious to the intricate lives of others around me, content to be on my own. However, as I got older, I began to watch other kids my age more - I noticed girls talking together about the latest episode of Hannah Montana, … READ MORE
