I had the pleasure of being a "passion speaker" at the Innovate Work  Rockies virtual event yesterday presenting this topic, "Is Entrepreneurship The Future Of Work?" It was a great event and I especially enjoyed listening to all the expert speakers share their debt of knowledge. InnovateWork is a wonderful forum for HR professionals and business leaders looking to connect and learn best practices on how to improve...
During the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the frequent discussion in the media has focused on the number of ventilators and hospital beds, but often lacking in the discussion is the number of available nurses, doctors, respiratory therapists, and other qualified health care providers. We should be concerned about not only the number of qualified professionals, but also the number of “healthy” individuals who...
I have been under the weather with the cold since last week and it made me start wondering if the common cold can protect us from COVID-19? Here's what I found out: "Research shows that some common coronaviruses likely can. Getting a cold is something most people normally want to avoid. Now that cold and flu season is upon us and the pandemic is on, you might be feeling this even more so. A sniffly nose can send you worrying, waiting...

This investment is part of the province's...
In childhood, being alone rewires it, possibly into adulthood. But the effects are reversible. Almost all of us have experienced some degree of social isolation since the pandemic first began. Maybe you fell sick with COVID-19 and had to stay home in quarantine, or perhaps you isolated yourself due to your own health concerns or known exposure.  While not everyone went into a strict sense of isolation, we were all removed from one...
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus. The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing.

Wearing masks are also advised and required...

"Its arrival is uncertain, and could simply be an elongation of the fist wave due to low levels of immunity. The viral hotspots are always moving. What was once the worst area in the country in the US for the coronavirus is now one of the best, and the least affected, now the worst. The cycle goes round and round. This virus perpetuates itself so readily it can be hard to tell what is really going on. Are Americans still in the midst of...
Get some soap and lather up. Then rinse. Wearing a mask has become a thing. In a weird twist of fate, agreeing to or disapproving of covering your nose and mouth has become no small political statement across the US. Whatever your leanings,(love the mask or hate it), if you have ventured into the realm of wearing a face mask more recently than last Halloween you know that it can be a pain. Getting the right fit helps. If you wear...

Studies say, yes. But in a strange twist of fate, the WHO and the CDC don’t really want to publicize this too much, some experts say. Here’s why. You can get the coronavirus if someone coughs on you, if you touch a contaminated door handle, and if someone is infected in your home and they don’t quarantine themselves in a specific room. These are just a few of the ways you can infect yourself with COVID-19. Direct contact...
