Think of the students... the mental and emotional impact (in no particular order) of:

• someone in their school dying... their class. A friend.
• a teacher dying
• having to self isolate anytime someone in their cohort is symptomatic.
The impact of...

• having to be continually reminded to put their mask on
• the breakdown of student-teacher relationships with teachers continually nagging students
• an unexpected school shut down for deep cleaning
• feelings of guilt if you transmit CoVid to someone
The impact of...

• wondering why your friends are coming to school
• sit down, shut up, and do you work for all classes
• no, you can't go take a moment to collect yourself in the hallway
• no toys
• no sharing
• no socializing
• no fun

Shandro starts off today's update by talking about how some non-urgent surgeries are starting up again. #ableg #abhealth
Shandro says as more surgeries are phased in, they will monitor and evaluate if more procedures can resume, such as short-term overnight stays. He says if there's too much risk, they may take a step back if need be.
Hinshaw says 70 new cases have been identified, total now in #AB is 5836. 2942 cases have recovered. #abhealth

This is your daily pension announcement: The Pension War room™️ begins a dive into the dung heap of AIMCo corporate governance. CEO Kevin has been busy. He appeared on a youtube broadcast of the Canadian Club "Pensions and the Pandemic" (it's boring)

This is what is wrong: CEO KEVIN IS NOT A PENSION EXECUTIVE. He is an investment executive. There is a big difference. Never has he gone to a job interview and been asked specific questions about pension liabilities. The Canadian Club called him a pension executive. He isn't.
Which gets to the AIMCO Board. It was an okay arrangement if you were just investing the Heritage Trust Fund. You know, a board selected from business luminaries in AB giving something back to AB. Undoubtedly influencing investment in AB oil and gas. #ABLeg

Uzun yıllardır #ABD ve #NATO'nun, kendisine yönelik esas tehdit olarak gördüğü #Rusya'nın yanına #Çin de eklenmiş durumda. Bu iki ülke hem #Amerika hem de Avrupa Birliği üyesi başat ülkeler tarafından tehdit olarak tanımlanıyor. Son NATO zirvesinde de bu teyit edilmişti.
#Çin ve #Rusya'nın uzun yıllara dayalı bir işbirliği söz konusu. Bu işbirliğini, Şangay İşbirliği Örgütü ile yeni bir boyuta taşıyan ikili, yanlarına #Hindistan, #Pakistan, #Kazakistan, #Kırgızistan ve #Tacikistan'ı da yanlarına almışlardı. Hal böyle olunca, ortaya çok büyük
bir nüfus, iş gücü, ekonomik pazar ve askeri güç çıkmış oluyor. Peki birlikte böylesine önemli bir siyasal/ekonomik oluşumun temellerini atan #Çin ile #Rusya ilişkileri çatışmasız mı? İki ülke arasında çelişkiler yok mu? İsterseniz, gelin tarihsel süreciyle buna bir göz atalım.

Behind all great women are more great women.

On the eve of #RemembranceDay2019, meet one of those great women: Beatrice Nasmyth. #LestWeForget #cdnmedia
Her name was a footnote in a story I recently read about Roberta MacAdams, #AB’s 2nd female legislator elected in 1917.

Unfortunately, Nasmyth’s inspiring story has largely been lost to time even though the Stratford native was a trailblazer for equal rights in Canada.
When WW1 broke out in 1914, she rushed to the frontlines. Writing for the @theprovince, Nasmyth would often go to great lengths to have her stories describing the horrors of the Great War smuggled back to 🇨🇦, defying government censors.

About 10 years ago, I was walking home from a slow-pitch baseball game and party with my team. I was a bit drunk, so I walked instead of driving. On the way home I was mugged from behind and woke up in the Rockyview Hospital in #YYC, with a #TBI #concussion. (1 of 13)
I've had multiple concussions from athletics. Football, hockey, rugby & skiing, plus ran over by a car, not once but twice. (think Super Dave Osborne) plus what I have learned since, repeated mildTBIs from the sports. Likely result, I have #CTE. I get worse each year, not better.
Here is what is happening now. I retired from my business some years ago and stopped working completely, 3.5 years ago. I have other progressive diseases besides #CTE, like #COPD #Arthritis #Cancer and more. It is a heavy load and crippling my abilities.
