CANADIAN ACTOR CLARENCE SPONAGLE RETURNS TO A LOVE ONCE LOST

By R. Flora Kim. I was first introduced to Clarence Sponagle when I viewed ‘Eighteen’ - a soul touching coming of age story about a teenager named Pip who, like his WWII grandfather, felt lost in the chaos of his environment. Sponagle played Clark, a young street hustler who, strangely, helps Pip discover himself. Though the film wasn’t widely known, Sponagle’s performance was memorable in my eyes. Sadly, I hadn’t seen the actor in a film since. That was until this past Summer, when I made a last minute decision to attend a small film festival put on by InFocus Film School at the SFU Goldcorp Theatre. After films about a woman who changes the life of a homeless man, a world where humans have a finite amount of tears they can shed, and a politically driven-shocker about female menstruation, I was taken aback to see Sponagle again in a...

New Laws Make Online Gaming Legal and Easy

The online world plays a huge role in our daily lives. We use it to shop, earn money, talk to friends, catch up on the news, and even to meet potential love interests. Now in many American states it’s possible for adults to place legal wagers on sporting events as well. This adds an extra layer of convenience, security, and excitement to supporting one’s favorite athletes, not to mention the prospect of pocketing a little extra cash as well. US Supreme Court strikes down controversial anti-wagering law Concerns about the alleged negative effects of online sports wagering led the US Congress to pass the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) back in 1992. Signed by then-president George H. Bush, the act soon proved unpopular and difficult to enforce. The decentralized nature of the Internet meant that Americans and Canadians could simply turn to overseas websites or illegal operators to...

The WHY behind the creation of SunnySuccess

Motivational Speaker Toastmaster's Contest Winner Toastmaster's Club President Monthly Workshop Facilitator Life Experiencer Growing up in a single-parent household, my life was anything but normal. I did not do well in school — I was the worst in every class and every sport. I had low self-confidence, not many friends and was always told I will not be able to accomplish much in life which I truly ended up believing. Things remained the same even when I was a teenager. I still had that same mindset. In high school, while other students were preparing for post-high school plans, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I still carried that lack of confidence and self-limitations from my childhood. I graduated from high school in 2008 and immediately starting work full-time in retail. Within two years of working in retail, I was fired. I was sick and...

Reactive Vs. Proactive Solutions: Capturing Carbon Dioxide Emissions

Humans have always been problem solvers. From the Dark Ages after the fall of Rome to the World Wars, they have been forced to find solutions to myriads of problems, from personal, to economic, to environmental. Today, society’s most pressing global crisis is environmental collapse. As always, we are forced to find a solution. So far, we have focused primarily on reactive solutions such as electric or hydrogen-fueled cars, as well as carbon taxes. However, as some companies are unwilling to give up their use of carbon, it is time that we focus on proactive solutions. An example of a proactive solution is when Boyan Slat, then a 19 year old Dutchman, used his own initiative to find a method to clean up the islands of plastic waste contaminating the oceans. Likewise, rather than relying just on our governments to reduce carbon dioxide emissions through taxation or cap and trade...
