I’m sure you’ve heard the words “these are unprecedented times.” And, quite truthfully, they are. In almost 3 months of lockdown and social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic we’ve felt loss in many ways, while doing our best to make things work. Whether it be online classes, video calls, late-night online pictionary , lining up outside the grocery store, or going for family walks, we are all doing our best to maintain a...

I've wanted to be a forensic anthropologist or pathologist since I was 9 years old. For those of you who don't know, forensic anthropologists analyze skeletal remains to figure out information about a person or the manner in which they died. Forensic pathologists analyze corpses through autopsies to determine the cause of death and manner of death. 

So, basically, at 9, I decided I wanted to work with dead people for the r...

Did you know that some researchers and doctors specialize in the effects of music on our nervous systems? Writing, playing, and listening to music all affect the human nervous system. This specialty is called neuro musicology. Although no one truly knows by whom or when this field of study was first pursued, we know of people who were part of its beginning. Robert Zatorre, a neurologist from Montreal, was one of the first doct...

The new decade allows Canadians to reflect on the lifestyle changes in the 2010s. One’s mind may quickly focus on innovations in technology, with the development of new cellular phones, tablets, laptop computers, and more. Technology has changed our lifestyle; back in 2010, Canadians first encountered the wonders of iPads and the arrival of 3-dimensional films – something most people are accustomed to nowadays. In the last dec...

The comedy-drama Jojo Rabbit, released in October 2019, is a film addressing the Nazi regime in Germany from a comedic standpoint. Before watching the movie in theatres, based solely on my general knowledge of the Taika Waititi film's premise, I was not convinced that a comedic approach towards the dire subject of the Holocaust would be well-received. To my surprise, as a person who cares greatly for the fitting representation...

In Canada, we are blessed with the freedoms of speech and of choice. When discussing bullying, students are taught to stand up for themselves, for their friends, to notify an adult. Many schools in Canada are implementing the “Roots of Empathy” course, a curriculum which aims to teach empathy to students as they interact with and help to care for a baby as it develops. But when have we ever been taught to take care of ourselve...

How much do you value sleep? At what cost do you protect your daily sleep time? Studies show that people who sleep more tend to live longer, have healthier lives and be better and happier people all around. You probably have a very busy life and need “downtime” to relax, unwind and spend time with friends. This can happen at the expense of sleep because many people crave the quiet privacy of a late night after a long day at sc...

  • The History of the Santa Suit

Every year throughout my childhood, I waited patiently for Christmas to arrive. Although my interest was largely around getting presents, my excitement while anticipating Santa’s visit was extreme. Today, Santa is an unmistakable figure who sports his iconic ensemble of a red robe and white fur trim. Until now, I had always accepted this image of Santa, and never questioned the...

Billy Joel is an American singer and songwriter who revolutionized performance art as a whole. You may be familiar with the artist’s biggest hit, “Piano Man,” a piece in which Joel sings and plays the piano and harmonica at the same time. This iconic song was popular in 1973, holding a special place in all of our parents’ playlists. Joel’s stylistic performance choices and distinctive voice are not the only reasons why his son...
