Vancouver or Toronto? Which is Canada’s Top City to Visit?

Canada’s two most popular cities, Toronto in the East and Vancouver in the West, each offer visitors a great experience, but given the choice, which city should you visit?  After you read these descriptions of the amazing things to do in both cities, we are sure you will be ready to get a cheap flight to Canada.

There is a reason why Toronto has Canada’s busiest airport, the city is simply a top choice for those who want to experience one of the best cities in the world.  Toronto is known for its Maple Leaf’s hockey team, its international film festival, the CN Tower, and it’s most famous current resident, the musician Drake, but with gems strewn around the city like confetti there are many more reasons to get here.

The city abounds in upscale dining with bunches of cafes, bistros, and restaurants whose offerings rival New York and London, and its shopping is comparable to Los Angeles or Hong Kong.

Those visitors interested in the outdoors have many choices from the Toronto Islands, to beaches to dozens of parks and hiking paths. Or get in a round of golf at one of Toronto’s top golf courses. For culture freaks, Toronto has museums and galleries galore. And for families, the city abounds in activities for young people including the Ontario Science Centre.

But even with all of this, Toronto is different and much more. The city is set on the northwestern shore of beautiful Lake Ontario, and with a fast growing population of 2.6 million, it is now, the fourth largest city North America. Toronto is a very modern city, with almost every building being built during the past twenty years. In 2005 there were only thirteen skyscrapers and today the city has 50 with 130 more being planned or built.

For business, Toronto is Canada’s top city, with a booming business sector and many large international companies setting up shop here and many of Canada’s top companies having their home offices in the city.

With so many reasons to come, how could you possibly stay away from Toronto?

Vancouver, Canada

In 2015, the Quality of Living survey ranked Vancouver as the best city in North America for quality of life, for the second time. The survey looks at personal freedom, crime, political stability and air quality.

Even with these major accolades, Vancouver is still an under-rated destination that excels at being a modern, traveler-friendly place with a moderately mild Pacific Northwest temperature and a host of reasons to visit again and again.

Many say Vancouver is blessed with more natural beauty than any major city in the world. With its gorgeous sites including: the North Shore Mountains, English Bay, Vancouver Island, its temperate rain forests, and an active volcano, Mt. Baker, Vancouver is a wonder to behold.

For gastronomes, the city can’t be beat. You can find every style and taste here and because a large part of Vancouver’s multi-cultural mix comes from Asia, the best Korean, Japanese and Chinese food in North America can be found in Vancouver.

The climate, the ocean and the mountains combine to make Vancouver and area a year-round playground. You can sail, play tennis, snowboard, swim, windsurf, run, mountain bike, paraglide, and ski nearly year round here.

For entertainment, the city features the Vancouver Canucks hockey team, and a full range of museums, parks and sites to engage visitors of all ages, for days on end. And of course the is Vancouver’s famous Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains that with over 8,100 acres of snow-covered slopes, offer the ultimate in big mountain skiing experiences

The city is also a top film and television location destination, with many top films shot here every year. And downtown Vancouver is home to many of Canada’s most successful businesses.

Both Toronto and Vancouver offer a stunning array of amenities and attractions for visitors and each has its own unique character. Which city is the best to visit depends on your personal preference. Is it the big city allure of Toronto, or the beauty and charm of urbane Vancouver? Our vote is you visit both!

Is That Individual Worth Dating?

Whether you are a woman or a man, online dating can be a blessing or a nightmare.

As individuals turn to the Internet to meet someone, there should be the least bit of trepidation.

What someone says about themselves on the worldwide web can be very different from who they are.

How much time and effort will you invest in doing an online search or two of the person you might be most interested in?

Know as Much as You Can Before Dating

So that you can know as much as possible about an individual before dating them, consider these tips:

1. What will the Internet tell you?

For starters, do your best to know as much as possible about them.

No, you’re not a detective, but that does not mean you shouldn’t do some research here and there.

Is it in the back of your mind that someone you’re talking to online may not be telling you the entire truth? If so, what options do you have in front of you?

One option of course is to end the conversation and move along.

Another is to do a criminal records search.

In that search, you can find out if someone is withholding certain information from you. Most important would be that they in fact do have a criminal record.

While a few traffic tickets are not a big deal, domestic violence, robbery and other such offenses are.

2. Listen to them 

Face it; many folks had to listen to someone go on and on about themselves either before or during a date. In all honesty, it can get pretty boring in a hurry.

That being the case, you should still look to pick up on certain statements.

For instance, does someone show contempt for people of authority? If so, that could be a warning sign that they are not respectful of others.

An example of this being a red flag would be someone who talks bad about their employer.

Yes, while many people have issues in the workplace, most people are thankful to have a job in the first place. As such, bashing an employer or co-workers can be more than your everyday frustration.

While you can’t always focus on every said or written word, do your best to listen and look with attention.

In the end, doing so could save you much time and frustration.

3. You get what you paid for

As using the Internet to buy items may not always pan out; joining a dating site comes with ups-and-downs too

Always remember that you get what you pay for.

On the one hand, you could end up meeting the person of your dreams by dating via the Internet.

On the flip side, it could turn out to be a nightmare at the end of the day.

You may find that meeting someone through friends, work, even church would be better.

For all those married couples out there, it had to start somewhere, right?

That said many of them could likely share a dating nightmare or two.

As such, don’t feel bad if you go through a bad date or two along the way to finding your true connection.

6 Easy Steps For The Perfect, Glowing Face Makeup

makeup

makeup

Healthy, dewy, even skin – although we wish we only had good-skin days, sometimes we all have to fight the symptoms of a long night or a stressful week and create a glowing makeup look that can hide the signs of exhaustion. Luckily, there are numerous amazing and super easy techniques that can do miracles to the skin, but it can be difficult to find our ways in the endless maze of makeup products. To help you out, we collected the six most important steps of creating a flawless, even face makeup!

Before you start…

Ensure your skin is prepared and ready for all the layers of makeup. Regardless of the quality of your foundation and brushes, foundation and concealer can easily cake up and look unnatural if your skin is not clean and moisturized beforehand. Gently cleanse your face, take off all the excess makeup and use a light, water-based moisturizing cream 10-15 minutes before applying primer and foundation, this way, you will leave enough time for your skin to absorb the hydrating cream and get ready.

  1. Prime & Moisturize

After your regular skincare regiment, continue prepping with a correctional primer. Besides making the makeup stay in place all day, the right primer for your skin can also help you achieve a flawless base and help your skin stay healthy. To find the one that works the best with your skin, take a minute to observe your skin type. If your skin tends to be dull and have dry patches on the cheeks and temple, search for a hydrating primer with a dewy effect, but if you would like to fight your oily, problematic skin and cancel out the shine, go for a balm textures primer with a matte effect. Make sure you always apply a layer before continuing with foundation or any makeup product. Not a big fan of primers? No problem! Help your skin out with a gel textured moisturizer or a refreshing, cucumber or rosewater toner.

Pro tip: Primer waters can be the perfect option for you if you are looking for something super light!

  1. Conceal & Colour Correct

Cancel out any discolouration and make your skin tone look even and with the help of colour correcting. Grab your concealer pens and use green for redness, orange and salmon for purple under eye areas and dark acne scars and purple for dullness. Don’t worry, you don’t have to apply every shade all at once to cancel out everything. Instead of going overbroad, focus on the one or two main discolouration problems and don’t forget to blend everything out precisely with a soft brush. If you are lacking a few of these concealer colours, a matte, cream or liquid eyeshadow will do the job perfectly.

Pro tip: Never apply too much concealer – a little amount will do the job and it will be way easier to blend things out.

  1. Cover Your Canvas

Now that your skin has been prepared, it’s time for the foundation. Just like the primer, it might take time and experimenting to find the right one for you. Before investing in a foundation, consider 3 aspects: its texture, coverage and shade.

While people with dry skin might want to say goodbye to powder foundations, women with oily and problematic skin should try out a light, gel or mousse texture. For everyday wear, our team recommends trying out a light to medium coverage ones, and to find the perfect shade, take time to find out your skin undertone. If you have really light, porcelain-like skin, cool undertone foundations will work the best, and if you belong to the group of girls with more orange and deep-toned skins, your dream foundation will be a warm under-toned one.

Pro Tip: If one layer is not enough, gently go over your skin with the remaining product on your blender or brush to ensure a fuller coverage. For night outs, you might want to double the layer of a light-coverage foundation, but always check the result in natural light before going out.

  1. Halo Highlight

The term “halo highlight” might sound familiar from hair salons, but after the popular balayage technique, halo highlighting has become the new favourite makeup trend of various makeup artists. While different highlighting techniques can be too complicated and overwhelming, following halo highlight will help you easily apply highlighter to the right places. The aim of the halo way is to emphasize the places where the light would naturally hit the face, creating a glowing, yet still natural effect. Grab a liquid highlighting pen or a cream highlight, and gently go the top and bridge of the nose, cheekbones, brow bones, temple and cupid bows to get the glowing halo effect.

Pro tip: For special occasions, add a cream highlighter or a shimmery body lotion to your collarbones as well!

  1. Rosy Cheeks

After adding the highlighter, it’s time to frame the face and give it more definition with the help of a blush and a bronzer. A light, pinky peach shade is perfect for the casual, busy every days, because although it is such a subtle shade, it still gives the skin that rosy cheek effect. After applying the blush to the apples of your cheeks, grab a warm toned, matte bronze and pat it through your cheeks with a big, angled brush. The bronzer with the blush will bring out the natural characteristics of your face and will emphasize the glow of the highlighted areas even more.

Pro tip: Don’t be afraid to use a hint of shimmer in your blush or bronzer, but try to always include at least a matte shade.

  1. Lock It In

Even, healthy, dewy skin – now that everything is finished, the last step is to fix your makeup so it will stay there all day and all night. For this, use a makeup setting spray (a refreshing spray for lighter days and a heavy-duty locking spray for night outs and super warm  days), but if you want to get a bit of an extra coverage, apply a powder on top of your liquids (such as a powder highlighter on top of your liquid one). Mixed with the setting spray at the end, this technique will beautifully blend and emphasize every little part of your makeup.  For those luscious lips, you could choose to go with a pop of colour, or a more natural look with a gloss or stain.  To complement your makeup ensemble, you could opt to add that extra sparkle by whitening your teeth , a look that never goes out of style.

Pro tip: Looks too much at the end? Makeup is all about experimenting – if you are not satisfied with the final look and you have a cakey feeling on your face, brush the excess of with a huge powder blush.

Keep Criminals Out of Your Home

 

Do you feel safe inside your house?
If the answer is no, what are you going to do to ease those fears?
While there are different options on the table, one such possibility would be buying a gun.
Even though many people do not like the idea of such a weapon in their homes, it can provide you with a sense of security. As such, you can have a deterrent in the home should someone try and break into your house.
If you decide to buy a gun, making sure to store and use it in a safe manner is of the utmost importance.

Get Trained on Using and Storing Your Weapon

In owning a gun, it is imperative that you are as safe as possible with it. This rings especially true if you have children in the home.

Among the safety factors to take into account:

· Operating the gun – Above all else, make sure you and anyone else in your home authorized to use a gun knows how it works. From cleaning it to loading it, you want to know any and all possibilities of it firing. Always assume you have a loaded weapon when you or someone else in the home handles it.

· Storing the gun – When it comes to storing your weapon, look at the best available gun holsters. Place your weapon under lock and key, especially when there are children in the home. Accidents do occur, something that you could end up regretting for years to come. Along with holstering your gun, be sure it is in an area of the home where kids can’t access it.

· Registering the gun – It is also important to register your gun. If stolen, you want to have it registered so it will be easier to track down.

How to Lessen the Odds of an Attack

While there’s no guarantee against a break-in, you can lessen the odds.

First, don’t make you and your family targets by doing the following:

· Leaving doors and windows unlocked, thereby allowing for easier entry into the home

· Putting a spare key under a mat outside the front door or in a flower box. These are usually the first places a criminal will look to in trying to gain entry

· Announcing on social media when you will be away from the home for vacations and other matters

· Giving out personal information that can lead someone to your home

If you feel as if someone is casing your home or has followed you home on an occasion or two, be sure to alert the police.

How to React in an Emergency

Even with all the training in the world, how you will react to a break-in at your home is not easy to predict.

That said be sure to not fire your weapon and then ask questions.

You also need to be aware of where everyone else is in the home at the time of such an emergency.

The last thing you want is to know you injured or even killed a family member by firing your weapon.

By taking the proper amount of weapons training, you can lessen the chances of an accident.

With that in mind, are you doing all you can to keep criminals out of your home?

How to Motivate Your Team to Success

Motivation is a tricky thing to master in business. It requires that you dedicate your efforts to create compelling reasons for wanting to reach a particular goal. When your goal is to motivate your team, you need to tap into the reasons why they might want to accomplish the goal you put in front of them.

This takes an understanding of what is important to them and how you can get them to put aside what they might want personally so that they can focus on giving you what you want. Leaders like successful real estate construction entrepreneur Lloyd Claycomb II align the goals they have with the individual goals of their team members so each team member can be motivated toward the reaching the goal, for his own reasons.

At the core of any motivation strategy must be the correct demeanor and attributes of the leader. How this person acts will determine in large part whether the team member will buy into the goal and be sufficiently motivated to go for it. Here are the characteristics of the leader that is most likely to get people motivated.

Infallibly Passionate

Reliability is a core quality needed to get people motivated. Teams need to know with 100% surety that the person who is asking them to commit is also committed all the time and that he or she is consistent in their thoughts, beliefs and conversations. This individual needs to demonstrate over time that their demeanor will not change during hard times or good ones in regards to the quest for the goal, and that he or she can be relied upon to offer the same level of enthusiasm about the goal throughout the journey.

Consistently Reliable, Prepared

Team members will check to see how important the goal is to the motivator before they will commit. Does the leader get to meetings early and stay late to answer any questions team members have about the goal? Is the leader fully prepared when discussing the goal? The level of seriousness regarding the goal will be communicated by the behavior of the leader, so he or she needs to be reliable and prepared.

Accessible

Leaders need to be available for team members when needed. This means making sure everyone has direct access to the motivator via his phone, e-mail and other contact information. When the leader receives communication from a team member, he or she needs to respond timely with either an answer to the question or comment or a specific time when it will be answered.

Good Listener

A good leader is always prepared to listen. Enthusiasm is great, but what is better is to let a team member know that his comments and questions are appreciated and important. Not every question will be a good one, but every question will be an important one so the leader must listen and give a thoughtful answer. This not only builds confidence in the team member about the goal but also gets team communication flowing which will aid to reaching the goal.

To keep everyone on your team motivated takes time and commitment. Be prepared to spend a lot of time on motivation because it is at the core of every project’s success story.

Lloyd Claycomb – Why You Should Create a Dream Board

If you have dreams of one day doing great things, achieving great success and looking back on your life with pride, then it is important that you stay focused on the job in hand. Perhaps one day you wish to have a family or run your own successful business like Lloyd Claycomb, maybe you want to own a Ferrari or travel to some far flung corner of the globe.

Whatever your dreams are, small or large, you need to have a way of achieving them and one of the best ways which I have found is to create a dream board. If you haven’t heard of this before, it is a board with images, words and photos which represent what your dreams are, and here is why you should have one.

Focus

Life can often get in the way and we lose sight of what our dreams are, this is where a dream board comes in and it will help you to remain focused on what you are striving for. It is best to place your dream board in a location where it will be seen by you each day, if you do this then you can never forget what you are working towards and you will be able to stay focused on your goals.

Accountability

A dream board will be filled with inspirational words and motivational pictures which genuinely feel as though they are staring at you asking ‘why don’t you have me yet’? It is this feeling of being questioned that can help you to stay driven when it comes to going after your dreams and a board such as this gives you real accountability when it comes to the success or failure of getting your dreams.

Motivation

Picture the scene, you wake up in the morning, a day of work ahead, get out of bed feeling uninspired, lacking energy and desire. You go to the bathroom, or you’re just about to head out of the front door and you see your dream board, you see images of the house you want, the car you want and the life you want and you become instantly motivated to go and get the day. This is the purpose of a dream board and if you want to find a way to get motivated then this is how to do it.

To Make You Think

Whilst the function of a board such as this is to get you motivated, driven and make you accountable, there is also another great benefit which takes place in the creation of the dream board itself. The thing is, when you are putting together something like this, you are forced to sit back and take into consideration what you really want from life. Many of us fail to stop and think genuinely what exactly we view as success and what we want to achieve from our years on this planet. Making a dream board will shine the spotlight on you and force you to make important decisions.

What To Look For When Deciding To Change Your Work Boots

Your work boots are an important part of your daily life. They have been worn in over the years to be comfortable, and they provide you with the features that you need to keep you safe on the job.

Even the toughest work boots will wear out over the years. Most guys will do anything possible to keep from replacing their boots, even going as far as to cover them with duct tape until even that won’t stop them from falling apart.

It’s obvious that work boots which need to be held together with duct tape are in need of repair, but what are some of the less obvious signs that you should be replacing your boots? Read on to learn about some of the subtler clues that your work boots aren’t working for you anymore.

Your (Steel) Toe Is Showing

Work boots are designed to take a lot of damage and keep on going, but even the toughest work boots will wear down over time. This process doesn’t look like much until your boot reaches a breaking point.

One key breaking point is when the steel on your boot is showing. This could be on the steel toe, but your work boot should also be replaced immediately if any other steel part of your boot is showing. This can include the shank, midsole, or metatarsal guard as well as the toe.

A boot that has been tattered to that extent is going to create a safety hazard at the job site, and it has most likely lost a lot of the safety benefits that you were looking for when you initially purchased the work boot.

Are Your Boots Leaking?

Another key factor to look for when determining whether your boots need immediate replacement is if either boot is taking on water. A sealed work boot should be completely sealed, and there are no half-measures that you should accept in this situation.

This is similar to the previous point in that a work boot which has lost its watertight seal means that it has cracked, been punctured, or cut somewhere. This should be particularly concerning if you work around electricity, because it means that a live wire could theoretically shock you through your work boots accidentally.

Even if you don’t work near active electricity, you can still be putting yourself at risk of exposure to chemicals or other hazardous materials by continuing to wear boots that are unsealed.

Push On Your Heel

You can test your work boots’ strength by using an old trick that many runners use to check the quality of their shoes: pushing on the heel.

If your boot is beginning to break down, but it hasn’t shown some of the more telltale signs of age, pressing on the heel may give you an indication as to its durability.

Ideally, you’re looking for the heel of your boot to be strong and for it to take a lot of force before caving in (if it does at all). If it does cave in relatively easily, or more easily than it has before, then this could be an early sign that you should be thinking about getting a new work boot.

Check Your Boots For Wrinkles

If you’re looking for a quick cosmetic test to determine whether your boots need replacement, you should look no further than a trick that you can use to track how well you’ve aged: wrinkling.

On boots, the midsole will warp over time as it’s exposed to heat, moisture, and as it wears down more. Checking your midsole for wrinkles from time to time can give you a great indication of the amount of life left on your boots. The less wrinkling, the more time you have left.

Have you found that your boots are showing signs of age and you have made a resolution to get a new pair? What methods do you swear by to determine whether your boots need to be replaced? Let us know in the comments.

How to Look Great Even as You Get Older

People fear getting old. Many retain their youthful appearance through most of their 20s. Soon after then, they wake up to an unpleasant surprise: a rapidly retreating hairline, a silver hair, or a dreaded wrinkle – all of these are cause for alarm.

In a blind panic, they desperately seek out ways to slow down their aging process. Until Aubrey de Grey delivers us immortality, though, there are ways we can gum up the works of time.

Whether you engage in regular exercise or use specially developed cosmetics made by firms like Jeunesse, you can defy logic and mess with the minds of your peers. Here’s how to do it:

1) Establish exercise as a habit

It’s a bad cliché, but it’s true: use it, or lose it. These sayings hang around because they all contain a kernel of truth which ensure they pass from one generation to the next.

When you go out of your way to stress your body physically, your muscles develop micro tears, they heal, and grow stronger as a result. In old age, this helps to maintain or slow decays in strength.

If you just lay around all the time, these muscles simply atrophy, leaving them at risk for further withering as you get older.

How do you think some elderly folks end up in rocking chairs, while others are out kayaking rivers and skiing at the age of 86?

When you work out regularly, you also adopt a toned look that is pleasing to the eye. What’s more, larger muscle cells have a higher mitochondria count.

This means you’ll burn a lot more fat than your less active friends, who grow plumper as their puny muscles can’t even begin to make a dent torching their massive energy stores.

2) Hydrate yourself properly

Nothing helps our cells work better than having plenty of water on hand. When you remember that we are made of 70% water, it makes perfect sense.

When you fail to consume enough, your cells can’t get rid of their junk properly. This can lead to damage in the long run.

Additionally, a lack of adequate hydration can pose aesthetic problems for your skin, as pores that are chock full of dirt and oil will result in a face (or arm/back/leg/etc) full of acne if they aren’t flushed regularly with water.

By downing eight glasses a day, you will give your system enough water to function optimally.

3) Care for your skin like you give a crap

If you want to look amazing whether you are 18 or 80, you need to care immensely about how you treat your skin. It is your avatar to the world, so treat it with respect.

Start by washing your face the right way, by using a toner/astringent to cleanse oil and grime before using a gentle cleanser. About 2-4 times per week, use an exfoliant to scrub off stubborn dead skin cells.

With regards to cosmetics, stay away from products that use harsh compounds whenever possible. When you are out of the public eye, clean it off thoroughly, as many products clog your pores with ease.

Just got one of those dreaded wrinkles? Breathe, relax, don’t panic – there are many products which can minimize or cloak their existence.

By doing these things, you can maintain the appearance and feel of youth throughout your life.

How to Make The Most Out Of Online Gaming

I have loved playing video games for as long as I can remember and I have been a fanboy for the Atari, the MegaDrive and the Playstation throughout the years. Each time I bought a new console I was always amazed with the improvements that were made and each time that I thought games companies couldn’t go one better, they would always surprise me.

As the world of video gaming has changed, so have I and these days I love nothing more than playing online. I started playing online when my buddy Sam Zherka moved away from our town, I had been worried that our HALO sessions had come to an end but then we realized that we could still button bash together, despite the distance. I now do most of my gaming online, at least when I get a minute away from the kids, and here are some ways that you can do it too.

Linking Up Consoles

I have been both an xBox and a Playstation fan throughout the years and both offer a brilliant online portal where you can connect with other players across the World. This adds an awesome element of gaming and it means that you can do as I did and play with your buddies even when you aren’t together or playing with someone in an entirely different country and timezone. Almost every game under the sun for modern consoles has the ability to be played across the internet so regardless of whether you love sports games or strategy games, there is a chance for you to connect online.

Retro Gaming

There are fantastic websites which you can use to play all of the old, retro classics that we all fell in love with. The games are exactly the same as they were back then and are played through something called an emulator. The cost of retro consoles such as the MegaDrive and the SNES have gone crazy in recent years as retro has become ‘cool’. To avoid paying crazy prices for old consoles or games simply get online and enjoy some of those old games like Earthworm Jim, Shinobi, Duck Hunt or Super Mario.

Community Gaming

Personally I do not have the time to dedicate to it but many of my friends play for hours and hours on community-based online games such as World of Warcraft. These strategy games utilize thievery best of the internet and you play in teams that are made up of huge communities people from all over the World. Whilst I don’t play these games, I would if I had the chance as I love the idea of a huge gaming community coming together to enjoy themselves. If you love strategy and want to be part of an awesome gaming community then these are the types of games that you should be looking to play. Just be careful, days will slip away from you with ease once you start to get involved.
