The fall election season is upon us throughout the province of Ontario. Local leaders are chosen to represent ratepayers to decide how to best keep our community services running and economy prospering. There are a lot of “moving parts” to do this. Our choices at election time should make a difference. Candidates with a vision for the future need a mandate to energize change.
Contested elections are good. Ideally this forces debate, engages the local ratepayers, and after the election results are in, council has a sense of ratepayer priorities. Wouldn't that be nice?
Your body image is a subjective picture or mental image you have of your own body. If you have a poor body image you may look into dieting as a solution to improve it.

The basics...Let's start with Facebook, the most popular.
Facebook is great to keep in touch with friends and family. Content goes through a “news feed” allowing for commenting on your post to Facebook. Your friends may appreciate a picture you have uploaded to your Facebook page and comment, 'oh what a cute dog,”. You may respond to a friend's post and press the "like" button. When you “like” something the friends in your network see what you like, as this content goes into their news feed. This keeps everyone connected.
If you have registered a domain name and did not purchase privacy protection, chances are at some point your will receive a a letter in the mail offering to renew your domain name at inflated prices. Beware, the solicitation letter looks like a bill, and many consumers are simply paying the bill, thinking they are dealing with their domain registrar.
If you own a business or administer a site for other types of organizations, you need to know that at the present time there are a number of large US companies that are monitoring Canadian websites to "mine your content for profit".
