La Presse écrite du Gabon

La presse écrite du Gabon fascine les étrangers comme moi. La diffusion de la presse écrite est concentrée autour de Libreville, Port-Gentil, et Franceville, et non pas dans les zones rurales. Selon les statistiques de SOGAPRESSE, une société de distribution de la presse écrite locale, le Gabon compte plus de 80 périodiques, avec environ une vingtaine d’hebdomadaires.

Provincial-Municipal Acrimony: Ford Slashes Toronto City Council

Once again, against the better judgement of many Ontarians, Doug Ford has our attention. Recently, the unlikely Premier has declared that his Progressive Conservative government will be invoking the notwithstanding clause in section 33 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to proceed with his decision to reduce the number of Toronto city councillors— but not without controversy.

John Kemp's Kitchen: Welcome Back!

Hello everyone! Once again, we’re back to another year at Glendon and another year of Pro Tem. If you follow the Facebook or Instagram pages of John Kemp’s Kitchen, you’ll notice that I’ve been more or less inactive.

Get Up and Go: How Running can Teach you to Pace Yourself in Your Academics

The beginning of an academic year is often the beginning of the season for many athletes, and I remember always thinking that sports during school must be extremely difficult to manage. Between training, team practice, eating well, sleeping well, and performing at games or races, the thought of adding school into the mix always seemed daunting. I found myself questioning my athleticism once I started university, especially with these thoughts in mind. I always wanted to find an activity where it was easy to simply “get up and go” to clear my mind and help with better overall physical and mental health

A Review of Troye Sivan's "Bloom"

Troye Sivan’s second album, Bloom, was released after months of anticipation and it did not disappoint! Many people know Troye through his popular YouTube channel from back in 2012. His first album Blue Neighborhood was released in 2015, but it was clear that Bloom was going to be something completely different from anything Troye has released before. Troye is considered by many to be a gay icon, and over the past few years, he has developed a unique look and sound that caters to the LGBTQ+ community.

This Music is Good! Do I like it?

Summer is long, and this summer has been longer than most; we have the strike to thank for that. However, with the long summer came a deluge of new music, which was a cause for celebration. Some of it was great (e.g. Quelle Chris & Jean Grae’s Everything’s Fine, Ghost’s Prequelle), some of it was less so (e.g. Father John Misty’s God’s Favorite Customer, Drake’s Scorpion).

Partir à l'étranger : une façon d'apprendre pas comme les autres

De nos jours, de nombreuses personnes sont de l’avis que l’éducation postsecondaire joue un rôle primordial dans le développement économique et social du Canada, pays abondant en choix d’études, possibilités diverses, et surtout, en possibilités d’emplois. À cet effet, Glendon et York International offrent tous deux une panoplie de possibilités d’échanges et de stages à l’étranger à leurs étudiants, futurs employés, leaders et entrepreneurs.

Thank you, Frosh!

The transition from high school to what lies beyond is a distinct and widely-celebrated milestone for the modern Canadian. Glendon is blessed with exceptionally personable students who invested immense energy and effort into this year’s Frosh, making the experience one to remember.

Getting The 411 on 401 Richmond

There are countless art galleries and institutions in this city: some are properties of design companies, charities and  co-working spaces, but did you know that there is actually a building that houses all of these incredibly varied organizations under one roof? Let me introduce you to 401 Richmond. This unique Toronto locale is a restored (not renovated) industrial building located in the heart of the Fashion District. Personally, I am lucky enough to not only have worked in the space, but also attended writing workshops and art classes, as well as having spent many an afternoon browsing its many galleries dedicated to visual arts, 3D installations, music and so much more!

Hearing Without Listening: Problematizing “Disability”

About a year ago, my 18-year-old sister decided to learn American Sign Language on a whim. Just to be clear, she was not losing her hearing, and no one in our family is going deaf. Being incredibly gifted, she is now capable of having full conversations in ASL. Other than having achieved something amazing and extremely useful, my sister gained an enormous amount of knowledge about the deaf community by attending ASL classes at the Bob Rumball Center for the Deaf (just north of Glendon on Bayview).
