In about 2 hours (12PM) I will be signing copies of Seventh Journey Book 1 at Mississauga’s Square One Chapters Book Store. This will be my third Book Signing at a Chapters location this year. I’d like to thank Chapters for being so gracious and supportive of Canadian Talent.
Seventh Journey Book 1 is a unique story with many twists and turns. The work has been described as “Not Your Typical Book” and myself as “Not Your Typical Author.” Reader’s Digest calls it “A Book You’ll Love To Share.” With Dimensions, Conspiracy, Advanced Technology, and Real World Research, there is indeed quite More >
Unity is a very important theme. It is critical to the resolution of the many problems facing our nation and our world today because without it we will never be able to engage the necessary solutions.
In this election year it’s painfully clear that there are many people with many differences. Many needs. Many perspectives. Many polarities. Many grievances. Many resentments. Many biases. Many prejudices. A great deal of intolerance. A great deal of hostility. A great deal of More >
Critical thinking skills are absolutely important to survive in such a complex and chaotic society. No one can deny that in the United States we are bombarded with instant information, and challenged by all the events going on around us at all times. And, company marketing and advertising is always trying to get us to do impulse buying, and market to our emotions rather than to our critical thinking.
Now then, I have a serious question; how you teach critical thinking without destroying the More >

Socialism, Nationalism, Authoritarianism and Republicanism are some of what is termed as ideology. Simply put they are constructs that rationalize society and the political life of a community. They also give insight into the relationships of individuals and lay the foundation for the creation of particular political communities. They are also the source of policies upon which a government which espouses them enacts. They are meant to be the foremost consideration and ideal of each individual in society. This means that every citizen has to adhere to More >

Many of the goals you set will be met by obstacles. When I was a teenager my mother would tell me, “Nothing worth having is going to be easy to achieve.” It wasn’t until I was well into my 20′s that I had an appreciation for her statement. I started to see that without obstacles, achieving your goals would be as mundane as watching television or picking up your dry-cleaning.
Although obstacles can be frustrating, without them life would be dull and boring without any excitement, drive, or motivation.
I pray that this week’s article will More >

Opinion surveys allow a populace to stand up and take notice of existing problems and evils like corruption and misuse of power and do something.
Companies regularly contact customers to find out their feedback on offerings and any new areas that the company can design a product or service for. Educational institutions are keen to know the new areas of study that large masses of students are interested in. Governments conduct opinion surveys to keep in touch with the masses and understand views on policy decisions. These are occasions for bringing to More >
One of the main culprits that keeps you imprisoned in a limited mindset in your youth and for some even for your whole lifetime is the religious belief that you have been born into. If you’re lucky you might have parents who live an orderly religious life but are not necessarily fanatics and refuse to give in to peer pressure. Lucky you. If you’re born to an evolved family of non-believers yet who live nevertheless a religious moral life and pass on to you good virtues and introduce you to what is really More >

What is Fear?
The American Heritage Dictionary defines fear as a feeling of agitation and anxiety caused by the presence or imminence of danger. You and I know fear as a cold chill, nausea, racing heartbeat, cold sweat, and a tension or tightness throughout the body. These symptoms result from the body’s natural reaction to threat, with preparations for fight or flight.
Perhaps what we don’t realize is that fear is always about a future event. Even the fear one feels from an immediate threat is a projection that the threat will More >
Genetically modified (GM) foods are often promoted as a way to feed the world. But this is little short of a confidence trick. Far from needing more GM foods, there are urgent reasons why we need to ban them altogether.
1. GM foods won’t solve the food crisis
A 2008 World Bank report concluded that increased biofuel production is the major cause of the increase in food prices. Biofuels are crops grown for fuel rather than food. GM giant Monsanto has been at the heart More >
