No parent should have to choose between their child’s health or losing work. Paid sick days are needed to keep children healthy, experts say. #Opinion thestar.com/opinion/contri…
Parents are forced to make impossible decisions about sending their sick children to school and child care because they cannot take time off work; missing their children’s doctor’s appointments, vaccinations and important checkups. thestar.com/opinion/contri…
Permanent and employer-paid sick days is an evidence-based policy that improves children’s access to vaccination and primary care, reduces reliance on the emergency department, and encourages parents to keep sick kids home from school. thestar.com/opinion/contri…

Para @marisanzdesa, experta de la #RedDeLasMujeres de #LaSillaLlena, la desigualdad menstrual no es solo un tema económico relacionado con la posibilidad de acceder a los productos de autocuidado menstrual.

También es un asunto de educación.

Hilo 🧶 Image
El @DANE_Colombia reconoció que se debían recoger datos con enfoque de género, y sobre la gestión menstrual como un ámbito importante para indagar.

En junio, por lo menos 748 mil colombianas tuvieron dificultades para comprar productos menstruales.

lasillavacia.com/historias/sill…
Según @marisanzdesa, en muchas comunidades la salud menstrual está atravesada por creencias.

Muchas mujeres no se atreven a usar tampones, aunque se los regalen, porque creen que las “corrompe” o que se les va a perder dentro de la vagina o “les va a atravesar el útero”.

Barça's statement was to put huge pressure on Javier Tebas.

Sponsors will want to pull out from La Liga & Tebas will eventually give in as Messi generates millions in TV rights.

There's no way Umtiti, Griezmann, Coutinho, Dembélé & Roberto are staying ahead of Messi.
Tebas will now have more pressure from fans, Sponsors and club presidents.

Jorge Messi wouldn't travel from Miami all the way to Barcelona just to say ‘No’.

Laporta is a mastermind, let him cook!

PS: don't take my word for it, it's purely an opinion which I'm still believing.
Laporta's board doesn't leak internal affairs but the News (from Madrid outlet MARCA) came out hours prior.

ALL News outlets don't usually have access to info, only some have this privilege, but today, we saw EVERYONE report it, which may suggest that it was leaked on purpose.

Who trashed the hotel rooms at #Tokyo2020? Eyes are on the Aussies but they say it was the Canadians that violated COVID protocols, drew noise complaints and engaged in drunken mascot theft.

@bruce_arthur has more. #Opinion
thestar.com/sports/olympic…
It was a party, all right. Aussie village mascots were reportedly stolen — an emu and a kangaroo — and later returned. The fibreglass moose Team Canada brings to every Olympics was taken for a walkabout. A mess was left in the streets.
thestar.com/sports/olympic…
The Australians apparently say the Canucks started the whole thing. They say, that’s who the police came to talk to. Asked about this, the Canadian Olympic Committee said, uh, maybe so. thestar.com/sports/olympic…

For all its photogenic sweetness, rowing, at its highest level, is a contest in suffering.

#TeamCanada's Hillary Janssens and Caileigh Filmer went through agony for the ecstasy of bronze.

#Opinion by @dfeschuk
thestar.com/sports/olympic…
Janssens and Filmer stormed to a commanding lead in the early going and led the race at the halfway mark of the 2,000-metre course. They were eventually passed by a dominant crew from New Zealand and a surging duo from Russia. thestar.com/sports/olympic…
But the Canadians were able to endure the pain — not to mention the late challenge of a fourth-place crew from Britain — to finish third and deliver Canada’s moribund rowing program its first medal of the Olympic regatta.

We have never seen anything like her in this country. What a swimmer.

@OleksiakPenny is Canada’s most decorated Summer Olympian after swimming to bronze in the 200 free at #Tokyo2020

#Opinion by @bruce_arthur thestar.com/sports/olympic…
In Rio, at 16 years old, Penny Oleksiak became a star. No Canadian had ever won four medals at a single Summer Olympics; she was given the flag.
thestar.com/sports/olympic…
In Rio she won bronze in the 4x100- and 4x200-metre freestyle relays, and silver in the 100 butterfly; here she has the relay silver and an almost unexpected bronze in the 200 free.

Canadians appear to think the country is on the right track, and that’s likely to benefit the governing Liberals, @SusanDelacourt writes.

#Opinion: Polls suggest it might be a good time for Justin Trudeau to call an election. torstar.co/WC9150FuqE9
Among crucial swing voters, Jagmeet Singh and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are described as optimists by more than 70% of those surveyed, compared to just 50% for O’Toole. thestar.com/politics/polit…
“Today, Mr. Singh is arguably the most popular national political leader,” the poll report states, “with 38 per cent saying they have a positive view of him, while 26 per cent have a negative view.” thestar.com/politics/polit…

"No more whispers." NFLer Carl Nassib’s bravery in coming out has many layers

#Opinion by @dfeschuk
thestar.com/sports/footbal…
“I just want to take a quick moment to say that I’m gay,” Nassib said in a video. “I just think that representation and visibility are so important. I actually hope that one day videos like this and the whole coming-out process are just not necessary."
thestar.com/sports/footbal…
As a five-year NFL veteran of the league, it’s safe to say he's well aware of the potential downside of sharing this particular aspect of his truth with the world — but despite describing himself as a “private” person, he went ahead and threw it out there. thestar.com/sports/footbal…

Even before the mass murder of the Afzaal family, Canada’s Muslim communities have been on edge.

In honour of the Afzaal family, let’s take action now, @AmiraElghawaby writes. #Opinion
thestar.com/opinion/contri…
"The London attack instantly brought back memories of the act of terror at the Quebec City mosque.

It took years of advocacy to come to a point where the federal government could commemorate that day by explicitly naming Islamophobia."
thestar.com/opinion/contri…
"Advocates and allies called on all levels of government to do more to combat the scourge of racism and Islamophobia.

Here we are, four and a half years later with far too little progress and with our communities now feeling more vulnerable than ever."

#OPINION | Pfizer developed the vaccine and manufactured it, as did Moderna, why should they have the luxury of shifting responsibility for side effects to the government? Well, for several reasons, explains @RoninLegal

news18.com/news/opinion/j…
@RoninLegal It is common for drug manufacturers to seek indemnification from their distributors (in this case, the government). However, it is a heavily negotiated clause.

news18.com/news/opinion/j…
@RoninLegal If the European Commission’s contract with Pfizer is any indication, the vaccine manufacturers have virtually no liability.

#Opinion by the Star's @robferguson1: There’s a lot of anxiety about AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine. Here’s why I was grateful to get it — twice
thestar.com/politics/provi… Image
Of the 526k people in Ontario who contracted COVID-19, a much-loved friend is one of the 26k who required hospitalization. I am one of the lucky 14 million who has not caught it.

We were both thankful to get our AstraZeneca booster shots on Thursday.

AZ part deux feels so good, despite its perception as a lesser alternative to vaccines made by Pfizer and Moderna.

“There is a lot more that needs to be done, but first and foremost let’s show love and respect.”

Calls grow for a national day of mourning for 215 Indigenous children whose remains were found on the grounds of a former residential school in B.C.

Several Ontario cities including Toronto, Mississauga and Brampton are lowering their flags to honour the children who lost their lives.

In Toronto, it will be for 9 days — 215 hours. The Toronto sign will also be dimmed, John Tory said in a statement.

#Opinion by @bruce_arthur: Though he normally avoids the spotlight, Steini Brown — co-chair of Ontario’s science table — has become the province’s strongest pandemic conscience, stepping up when a government was flying more or less blind.
thestar.com/opinion/star-c…
When Brown gives regular public briefings about COVID-19, it is a serious, honest, even dour comfort; he tells you what the science says about the pandemic as best he can. thestar.com/opinion/star-c…
Equity, action to avoid lockdowns, preserving hospital capacity, protecting the vulnerable: all are supported by the science, and while no model is perfect, the table has accurately captured where the pandemic is headed.

#Opinion: Despite the fact that one in five Canadians identifies as disabled, our stories are never on the radar when it comes to popular culture. If you haven’t seen the documentary “Crip Camp” yet, you should, writes advocate Andrea van Vugt.
thestar.com/opinion/contri…
Oscar-nominated “Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution,” encourages people to claim their disability, exposes disability civil rights history and is a reminder that a movement by the people, for the people, makes all the difference. thestar.com/opinion/contri…
The disability community is the largest minority group in Canada. And — wake up — it’s a minority group that you can become a part of at any point in your life.

#Opinion: The Vladimir Guerrero Jr. that everyone was waiting for has arrived, and he appears ready to take his seat alongside Major League Baseball’s top young stars, ⚾ columnist @GregorChisholm writes. @BlueJays torstar.co/vuf750EAijh
Guerrero was one of the sport’s most highly touted prospects, but prior to this year some people might have been wondering what all the fuss was about. ⚾️ thestar.com/sports/bluejay…
Guerrero was good, but not great, during his first two seasons in the league, which raised doubts about whether he would ever live up to the over-the-top hype.

Not anymore. ⚾️thestar.com/sports/bluejay…

It's the 50th anniversary of emails and guess what? Probably no one is celebrating that. After studying the social effects of email for several years some experts are convinced that email is a curse.

“It just clashes with our fundamental human wiring to have this non-stop piling up of communication from our tribe members that we can’t keep up with" - Cal Newport, author of “A World Without Email: Reimagining Work in an Age of Communications Overload."

It is common to send and receive some 100 emails a day. A 2018 study found that about half of users checked their email and instant messages every six minutes or so.

The site of Toronto’s largest workplace outbreak does not provide workers with paid sick days — a protection the city’s medical officer has called “critical” to slow the spread of COVID-19.

thestar.com/news/gta/2021/…
Some 94 workers at North York food processor Belmont Meats have tested positive for the virus; 12 of those cases are linked to the extra-contagious B.1.1.7 variant.

thestar.com/news/gta/2021/…
Toronto Public Health began publishing a list of all active workplace outbreaks last week. The four largest outbreaks are at food manufacturers.

At least two of those, Maple Leaf and Belmont Meats do not offer paid sick leave, unions confirmed. thestar.com/news/gta/2021/…
