I found on the city of Hamilton website that there is a partner ship between the city of Hamilton and Hamilton Renewable Power INC they are taking waste from the glanbrook landfill.

The Glanbrook Landfill Gas to… Continue

It's 2020 and my family and I are sitting at our lovely kitchen table. It's a beautiful sunny day and my children and I have gathered lettuce, tomatoes, cuc**bers, peppers, and herbs from the garden to create our home cooked meal. My family is of Greek decent so we have made a lovely fresh salad and to go along with it my husband has prepared pork souvlaki on the BBQ.

For years my grandparents have worked hard in my back yard creating a huge ginormous delicious garden filled with a variety of tree's, vegetables, and fruit. My grandparents were very generous and gave away vase amounts of food to our neighbors all down the street. My parents have passed away recently so my father and I have upkeep the garden and carried on with my grandparents work. I know they would be proud.

Is this what it really has come too....
My hometown is Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. When people think of Canada they think a land of opportunity and wealthiness.

It's a sad reality to face. There are 399 women, men, and children in emergency shelters every night, 2,436 women and children stayed… Continue

Through my years leading up to 2020 I will be doing so many different things. I will be studying and learning more about Pre-Health Sciences and becoming a Registered Nurse. Becoming a RN in Canada means you can go anywhere in the world and work as a RN. I would like to go to third world countries and help children and families there survive and give them aid. In ten years I see myself married to my boyfriend Darryl to whom I've been dating already for almost 3 years. We'll both be successful… Continue

The key isn't to completely change the culture, the key is to embrace it and enhance it.
I think a good thing to actually learn what it is really like is to place yourself in there shoes and live there for a week. Do what they do, live exactly how they would, and talk and listen to the right people. I think this is the best tip "Listen to the right people. Okay, so you probably don’t know what it’s like to carry fifty pounds of firewood on your head. Well, don’t pretend that you do.… Continue
