Hey Pickles!We were scheduled to be at the Toronto Vegfest this week. Alas, the Vegfest was cancelled due to an issue with their venue, but we decided to go to Toronto anyway because we love Toronto, and we had a non refundable hotel reservation.We turned lemons into the most delish lemonade, and visited so many great vegan establishments!We stopped first at Coven Plant Based Marketplace in Hamilton where we got some great vegan groceries, and a couple really swell sandwiches. Then, we headed to the Hamilton Market to see our friend Kristy at The Apothecary Kitchen, and to get some of her amazing soups! After talking with the fine folks there, we moved on to see Fraser at No Bones Plant Based Kitchen. We had a great time talking with Fraser while he baked us up some of his epic vegan sausage rolls.We stayed in Vaughan, visited a huge Ikea, and had dinner at the Vaughan location of Copper Branch, a casual vegan place that has a ton of options to choose from. We visited the Ontario Science Center, AND we had some of the best vegan Indian food at The Veggie Thali in North York. If you're in this area, and love Indian food, don't miss this place. So good!On our way back, we stopped in Hamilton again to check out The Hearty Hooligan. This place is a funky little gem on Ottawa St with an amazing menu that's jam packed with vegan burritos, sandwiches, quesadillas & pizza pockets. They also have some great smoothies, coffee drinks and cocktails!This was such a great weekend of vegan food & fun.

Since the murder of George Floyd and the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement there has been a new focus on the development of anti-Black racism training, and education on the impact of racism on our lives, relationships, and beliefs. Moya McAlister and Siddika Jessa are both creating workshops and safe spaces for conversation and education on race and racism. In this episode, Julie asks them how they manage these (often) uncomfortable discussions and interactions in a way that deepens our understanding of our own assumptions and biases, and gives us all the chance to rethink and do better. Moya McAlister is Communications Manager for NSRLP. She is also Board Director of Black Women of Forward Action, a Windsor-based group that advocates for anti-Black racism initiatives at a community and municipal level, and supports Black women entrepreneurs and students. Moya was previously featured in our episode, “Living Black Lives.” Siddika Jessa has also previously taken part in the podcast, for the episode, “The Courage of Your Convictions,” when she described how some members of her community responded to her son's same-sex marriage. Since then, Siddika has founded WiderLens, which delivers training workshops in the faith community, as well as the corporate and not-for-profit sectors. Wider Lens focuses on training in communication, emotional intelligence, anti-racism, and diversity. In Other News: This week our In Other News Correspondent is Research Assistant Shannon Meikle.

For returning guests, welcome back, and for those who are new here, I'm Andrea Samadi, author, and educator, originally from Toronto, now in Arizona, with a passion for learning, understanding difficult concepts, and breaking them down so that we can all use and apply the most current research to improve our productivity and results in our schools, sports environments, and modern workplaces. Watch this interview on YouTube here https://youtu.be/2GysauKi3Mc On this episode you will learn: ✔︎ The importance of Dr. Stephen Covey's 8th Habit-Finding Your Voice and Helping Others to Find Theirs. ✔︎ A look behind the scenes of The Chey and Pav Show-Where They Began and Where They are Now. ✔︎ What they have each noticed with their personal and professional growth hosting their podcast. ✔︎ Their vision for their NEW book "The Magnificent Microphone" ✔︎ What they learned from working with an artist with this book. ✔︎ How they intend this book to be used to connect with students whose voice is often left behind. ✔︎ How they use Easter Eggs (personal insights) to connect to their long-time supporters. With today's episode, my goal is to show the importance of identifying, sharing and amplifying the voices that aren't typically amplified. Dr. Stephen Covey reminds us that when he created the 8th habit, it was “not about adding one more habit to the 7, one that somehow got forgotten. It's about seeing and harnessing the power of a third dimension to the 7 Habits (taking The 7 Habits beyond where they were before) that meets the central challenge of the new Knowledge Worker Age (requiring continual growth). The 8th Habit is to Find Your Voice and Inspire Others to Find Theirs.”  After seeing this quote I had to ask Greg Link, who worked and partnered with the late Dr. Covey if I understood the real meaning behind this quote as I sensed it was deeper than I was grasping, and he said “He is likening finding your voice (the 8th Habit) as a next dimension fruit or outcome of mastering the 7 Habits. It's an outcome or next level, opposed to another habit” which left a profound impact on me with this episode that features 2 well-known podcast hosts from my hometown, who are on a mission to help others to amplify their voice, with their podcast and NEW book series. This means that their mission will inevitably create many NEW opportunities (or fruits as Dr. Covey put it) that will impact many people, around the world, for many years to come. Today's episode #215 is important to me (well, all the episodes are important) but this one touches the heart, mind and soul on a deep level, (as Dr. Marie Gervais reminded us to pay attention to in our last interview #214[i] on The Spirit of Work, to bring our whole selves to whatever it is we are doing) – and today's episode does just that. Today we will be speaking with Chey Cheney and Pav Wander, from The Chey and Pav Show,[ii] a weekly podcast that centers around teaching insights, reflections and growth of Chey and Pav, two middle school teachers from Toronto, Ontario.  They regularly comment on being JUST two teachers in a highly diverse community, who look to share best practices, favorite resources, mis-steps and setbacks from their teaching experiences.  I've told them often they are far from “just” teachers, but are exemplary, legendary leaders, who are paving the way forward for many who have previously not been seen, or heard and were at risk of being left behind. They did outline the highlights of becoming published authors (and all that they learned from this experience) on their most recent podcast episode #110[iii] that I encourage everyone to tune into. Today's episode we will look at their new picture book, The Magnificent Microphone[iv] that depicts a story of Chey and Pav, who in the picture book, are two keen and energetic elementary school students who often feel unseen and unheard at home and school. They always have vibrant ideas to share, but for some reason, they are always ignored! One lucky day, they find a Magnificent Microphone which helps them elevate their voices with the people that haven't been listening.  I invite everyone to join Chey and Pav as they plunge into sharing their voices, learn about storytelling, and find ways to help others amplify their voices. Let's meet these NEW published authors, keynote speakers, successful podcast hosts, and legendary middle school teachers from Toronto, Canada, Chey and Pav!!!! Welcome Chey and Pav!!!!! How much fun in this going to be??? Thank you for joining me today on the podcast. You know you've got a serious supporter of your work here, and I really do need to come back for a visit and meet up with you for coffee in the parking lot because the staffroom was never my thing.    Welcome, both of you. So, I've got to say this is really cool for me to speak with you both, being a former TDSB teacher. It's been a long time, but I was at Zion MS in North York. My department head was Jim Carson, who I had to look up and saw he's now at Fairmount PS (I think)…I'm not sure where Rexdale is from North York and how many educators you get to meet across the District.. FOR CHEY: So Chey (am I the only one who has no idea who the Hurricane Cheney is??). I've heard of a few wrestlers, (my husband is definitely a fan--he has a poster of the Iron Sheik in his office)—and I've heard of some others but I wonder why you chose The Hurricane as your Superhero name? What's so cool about this wrestler? FOR PAV: And welcome Pav (Wonder-woman Wander)…I understand this reference much better than the wrestling one.  You definitely are Wonder-woman, teaching, raising a family and running the podcast. No explanation needed unless there's more that I've missed?  Oh, expect baker as well, as I did steal one of your Christmas Cookie recipes! Q1: So, it's been over 2.5 years since you launched your podcast, (is that right??)  that's now called The Chey and Pav Show, and I know so much has happened since you put your voice out into the world in this short amount of time that's probably gone by like the blink of an eye. So many new opportunities are coming your way, and many more on the horizon, so I do want to first of all congratulate you both on the decision to do this work. Looking back now, Pav, you say this is “the most exponential growth you've experienced as a teacher.” Could you both go back to when you took your RSS feed and put it out to multiple podcast channels…what do each of you remember thinking back then and was exponential growth that would be chronicled for the world to see on your mind at all? Q2: Let's go to your 100th episode, which is a HUGE milestone (awesome!!) where you each went over your “most impactful” episodes over the years that impacted your growth. What is unique about this podcasting experience, is that the world gets to watch your growth (which I've seen with some other podcast hosts I follow-and I can see the growth in myself. I remember the first 50 interviews I did, I seriously look like I'm hyperventilating…I can't watch them without thinking “just take a breath…breathe!!”  I know you have noticed your growth as well. Aside from the knowledge you have both gained, what have you noticed about your growth personally and professionally with hosting The Chey and Pav Show and putting your voice out to the world? Q3: What I loved about your 100th episode is that you picked some episodes that were impactful, and stood the test of time. Over the years, I often draw back to past episodes for this reason, as I think they can inspire others for years to come. I know it's hard to think ahead, and easier to look back, but what is your vision when you get to EPISODE #200? What are your next podcast milestones goals? Q4: I'd like to move to your NEW picture book, The Magnificent Microphone, since this is a huge deal that you are now published authors. I actually wrote these questions BEFORE I read your book, and these questions have more meaning now, as I felt your story on a deep emotional level. Can you each share your vision for this book and eventual series? Q5: I have to mention your art work, since we also had an artist create images for our Level Up program and book. We interviewed our artist on EPISODE #13[v], Sam Roberts, as her artwork actually gained her a 4-year, all paid, prestigious leadership scholarship at the University of AR. Who knew when she was 16 years old, and sending me back ideas based on what I was asking her to draw for me, where this would lead her in her future. What did you learn from your artist, Shawnna Purkis, and I wonder what this experience uncovered for her as her voice was elevated being your artist? Q6:  What's next for you both? I know you are going to make this a book series, but I wonder if you have thought about the books having components that could be used for the ELL population? (I ask because I worked for Pearson ESL and many books to schools for Newcomer students). Have you thought about this audience as you are now working on translating this book into many different languages? Q7: I've got to mention the Easter Eggs (not chocolate-but the personal insights) that you have noticed in your episodes. I didn't notice I was doing that until I looked back when I got to EPISODE 100 and saw how intentional I was with the guests I asked to be on the podcast. The people I asked were ALL influencers in my life in some way. I quote them often, as I want to leave a legacy with what I'm creating to help others, by recording these moments of growth and it's a lot of fun knowing there's a creative side of me embedded in each episode. What have you both noticed? Q8: Congratulations on your huge keynote presentation in Saskatoon! I loved watching you both prepare for that. I know there's a lot of behind the scenes stuff that happens (let alone content prep). What stuck out to you from that weekend as memorable for you both? Q9: Is there anything important I have missed?  I want to thank you both for the years of support with our podcast. I haven't met you in person, (yet) but feel massively connected to you both. For people to learn more about your podcast, book series, and contact you, is the best place your website www.cheyandpav.com Thank you!! I can't wait to see what's next for both of you and how many young leaders your book (and series in the future) will inspire. When I make it back home, I'll be sure to let you both know! Reflections After This Episode: Some final thoughts: Today I got to come full circle as a former teacher from Toronto District School Board, who had no idea of the impact possible when you put the 8th Habit into action.  Imagine how many young leaders Chey and Pav's book series will inspire. This is only the beginning for them, but I see so much more. I do understand now why they refer to themselves as “just” teachers from Toronto (although I will always see them as legendary leaders). I can't wait to see where these two teachers with a passion of  sharing their voices, through storytelling, and find helping others to amplify their voices end up in the next 5-10 years. Dr. Stephen Covey's quote reminds us all that life is about getting to the 8th Habit—so whatever it is that you might be working on, I hope this episode has given you some insight of the importance of amplifying those often unheard voices—whether it's in the classroom, workplace, or in the sports environment. With that final thought, I'll see you next episode, with an elementary school assistance principal, Dan Wolfe, who is just about to release a NEW book that takes the 5 SEL competencies we've covered on our podcast and shows us how to navigate through life with these competencies as our “moral compass.” See you next episode.

Libby Znaimer is joined by Councillor Brad Bradford, Ward 19 Beaches-East York and member of the Toronto Parking Authority alongside Frank Clayton, Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Urban Research and Land Development and Elliottt Silverstein, Director of Government Relations for CAA Insurance. We know that the province has plans to scrap licence plate stickers and, this week, Premier Doug Ford announced that it will be providing rebates to vehicle owners who bought them during the pandemic. So, just how much lost revenue will this move have? As much as $1.1 billion! Treasury Board President Prabmeet Sarkaria said that the province has no plans to cut back on any services to make this happen. But, who will pay for it in the end? And, also, what implications will this have on the enforcement and insurance related to vehicles. Meanwhile, on another transportation-related note, the Ford government is also promising to remove highway tolls for two highways: the 412 and 418. So, why is this important and how do you feel about it? And, with the provincial election just months away, are these announcements just political campaigning? "THE WAR ON CHIPS" & HIGH COST OF DAIRY IN CANADA Libby Znaimer is joined by Dr. Sylvain Charlebois, Senior Director, Agri-Food Analytics Lab, Dalhousie University. Frito-Lay chips, a brand owned by PepsiCo Canada, are not being sold to grocery giant Loblaws after the latter refused to increase the price of their products. The reality is that food manufacturers have suggested prices for their products and when the manufacturer deals with challenges like labour shortages, supply chain problems and low profit margins, asking retailers to up the price is not unusual. Dr. Charlebois explains that, in fact, this kind of tug-of-war exists with dairy, bakery and other food products too. MICHAEL LEVITT ON ANTISEMITISM INCIDENTS AT TDSB Libby Znaimer is joined by Michael Levitt, President and CEO of Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies. The TDSB has an antisemitism problem. Last week at Valley Park Middle School in North York, a teacher, who is the descendant of Holocaust survivors, was surrounded by students in class who performed a heil Hitler salute. Earlier in the month, a similar incident happened at another North York school (Charles H. Best Middle School) where students performed a Nazi salute to their classmates. So, how could this have happened? And, what does Michael suggest that the TDSB should be doing to combat this issue? He weighs in. Listen live, weekdays from noon to 1, on Zoomer Radio!

Donaldson will discuss: Yankee Doodle Cranky. Human rights advocate and Green Party leadership runner-up Dimitri Lascaris published an op-ed suggesting that the time has come to undo Canada's long-standing, multifaceted relationship with the U.S. Why? America's slide into authoritarianism, their refusal to enact democratic reforms, and they're unwillingness to pass policy in the greater public interest (like gun control). Do we agree? Nooobody! He was the founder of a chain of furniture stores built with great advertising and a memorable tag line, he was the long-running mayor of North York, he was the first mayor of the "Mega City" Toronto, and he famously called the army to deal with a snow storm that one time. On the occasion of Mel Lastman's passing, we will dig deep into Mega City Mel's legacy and look at how his mayoralty still influences today. Cam As You Are. It's the end of another busy year at city council, so we invited Mayor Cam Guthrie on the show for a little year-in-review, and a little where-are-we-going-next. Mayor Guthrie will cover with us a variety of topics from the COVID-19 state of emergency, in-person council meetings, this year's budget, downtown drama, expanding autonomy for cities, and how he deals with online conspiracy theorists.

Former Toronto mayor Mel Lastman died on Saturday at the age of 88. Lastman made his fortune as a businessman before becoming mayor of North York for 25 years; after that, he was elected the first mayor of the amalgamated City of Toronto. And while the colourful politician made headlines for some politically incorrect remarks while in office—and may have fathered two sons out of wedlock—Lastman's biggest legacy includes his staunch promotion of the city and his dedication to building up the suburban parts of the city. Three colleagues and friends join to remember the former mayor. Journalist Sue-Ann Levy covered City Hall during Lastman's tenure; now-retired city councillor Norman Gardner was a close ally through their careers; and Rabbi Shmuel Spero is the rabbi at the Anshei Minsk synagogue in Kensington Market, where Lastman had his bar mitzvah.

For this special edition of Healthcare Change Makers, HIROC has partnered with the Association of Family Health Teams of Ontario (AFHTO) to bring you the voices of health leaders advancing emergent technologies in clinical practices. In today's episode, we speak with Dr. Ervin Sejdić, Research Chair in Artificial Intelligence for Health Outcomes at North York General, and Faculty Member at the University of Toronto. An engineer by training, early on in his career Dr. Sejdić identified a passion for data analysis and an interest in clinical medicine. His career today brings those two passions together. We talk with Dr. Sejdić about his team's ongoing research in dysphagia, sensor-based prediction of falls, analysis of electrocardiograms, and the analysis of electronic health records. Dr. Sejdić says the application of AI in medicine is still in its infancy. He sees the analysis of medical images coming as the next big splash for AI in clinical practice. We also talk with Dr. Sejdić about how we can make use of wearables, leveraging the sensors in our devices to learn about patient behaviour. The next challenge for Dr. Sejdić is finding ways to translate his research from university and hospital labs into real-world solutions. He's optimistic about working with start-ups and industrial partners to develop his research into products that can change lives. At the 2021 AFHTO conference, Dr. Sejdić presented a session on “Artificial Intelligence and Robots in Primary Care” alongside Dr. Mohamed Alarakhia. After this, check out Dr. Alarakhia's episode to learn more about how these experts are building a foundation for AI in medicine. Quotables: “I always knew that science plays a major role in every modern country, but it did not hit me until I was actually in the White House, meeting the American president, that it has that kind of a role, and that it is taken seriously.” – ES “I would encourage all young students to actually consider science and research as a potential way to contribute to society.” – ES “In theory, everything works. In practice, nothing works.” – ES “I think that's going to be the next big splash that AI will make in the medical world… we will be able to use AI algorithms to quickly analyze some of the medical images and come up with a summary for a clinician.” – ES “R&D is one aspect, but developing a product is a completely different beast. And typically, you cannot easily do it in a university lab.” “AI is about to change healthcare in ways we cannot predict. If our organizations don't act on it in a timely manner, they will be playing a catch-up game.” Mentioned in this Episode: North York General Hospital University of Toronto, Electrical and Computer Engineering Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital Tom Chau Healthcare Change Makers, Episode 29 with Daniel Pepe Access More Interviews with Healthcare Leaders at HIROC.com/podcast Follow us on Twitter, and listen on iTunes.

Welcome to Showcasing House Music DJ Mixes by dattrax!! 'Electric City' is a tribute to the city we love and where we fell in love with house music, Toronto. A tribute to it's community of house music DJs, producers, promoters, club owners, everyone involved and the all the party people/ the dancers (included those of us who can't dance but love to ;)This is a tribute to the house we got into, grew into, grew up in and fell in love with each time we heard these tracks. A huge hi-five, hug and thank you to all the singers, producers and DJs that made and played these tracks!!'Classic House' is a shifting definition... just depends on when you got into house and when those first 5-6 formative years were for you. For us tracks made in 1985-1996 are considered 'classic' but we started partying in 1990 and from 1990-1996 we were privileged to have heard and danced to the earlier tracks.For 'Electric City', I wanted to go for the 'what old is new again' intent, so it's not entirely a classic house mix because it contains some instrumental tracks that were created past '96 and I included covers and remixes of classics that had the same feel, had great sound quality and didn't care when those were actually produced. For the regular classics, sound quality was paramount also, but had to make exceptions for "Move" and "Music Take Me Up" because they are such wicked tracks (were my poor attempts at transferring my vinyl to digital). I'm sorry but on "Emotions Electric" was a CD version I bought at Sam The Record Man (sadly not in biz anymore)... back to my apology, I cranked the bass too much so...Over 5yrs ago, I wasted almost two months in the cracks of time between work and family recording a crate and a half (150 records) into my computer. Realised afterwards that because I had a crappy sound card the digitized tracks were flat sounding). After that Jim and I just started buying classics on beatport, traxsource, itunes and defected and probably 90% of the time the sound quality was excellent.Got a few classic tracks from friends like Eric Ling, Gene King, Devon Wills and Tyrone Solomon. Then Roberto Pinto told me about Discogs and all my classic house vinyl dreams are gonna coming true. We keep saying but bears repeating: "This is the best time for house music. Period!"As always, we hope you enjoy this mix and that it gives you that house feeling from head to toe. (If you were so inclined, then please donate any amount you'd like to with the paypal button to the right side of this site. We've had two donations in the last four years of operating this site, but hoping to set a record this year & you can be a part of that;)---------------Listed are the 42 tracks in order and a few sentences about each: (Really want to give you a little history of our early journey):cover by FCL- "It's You" (2012) Original (1986) "It's You" by E.S.P. Love this acapella cover!! Thought this would be a great start to this mix. Don't have a good quality version of the original.A Guy Called Gerald- "Emotions Electric" (1988) DJ AKI from the warehouse days made me love this track, it's so beautiful. Bought it on CD many years ago and always wanted to put it on a mix.Murk (Oscar G & Ralf Falcon)/ Coral Way Chiefs *moniker- "Release Myself" (1992) First heard this at a warehouse party on Spadina Ave, south of Dundas St in Toronto's main downtown Chinatown. It was at a "PTS" party!! Peter, Tyrone & Shams dominated warehouse parties for a few summers. Tightest house djs. Shams actually played this track off of reel to reel!!!!!!!!!! Mixing from reel to reel to vinyl turntables- BADASS!!Bobby Konders- "The Poem" (1990) Jim & I first head this at 'RPM All Ages Sundays' DJ'ed by Matt C. Jim flipped out and bought his first house records the next day. Think we met weeks later both stomping like maniacs at the speaker bins. We were 16 and were like: "WHAT THE HECK IS THIS STUFF!! THIS MUSIC IS WICKED!!!"Satoshi Tomiie- "And I Loved You" feat. vocals by Arnold Jarvis (1990) This was a record from my very 1st record purchases. It was summer time and I walked into a record store on Yonge St., downtown called "Carnival" and met Tyrone Solomon (of PTS fame!). Nicest guy and bought Shades of Black's "SHADOWS" EP on some label called 'Intrigue', I think. Can't imagine how many times I've heard this beautiful record and at countless parties.cover by Phonique- "Feel What You Want" feat. vocals by Rebecca (2012) Original (1994) by Rob Dougan & Rollo Armstrong & Kristine W (also featuring her vocals) Jim bought doubles of the original Kristine W. We were crammed into his bedroom when he 1st played it for me- I FLIPPED OUT!! Jim loved phasing doubles and then playing them purposely slightly off beat- sounded wicked!! Now you can do it with a 'delay' effects button. He made a mix on cassette tape, then we went downtown looking for a warehouse party. Love this cover done by Phonique and Rebecca, they keep the original feel but brought a freshness to this timeless vocal track.M.A.W.- "I Can't Get No Sleep" remixed by David Morales (1995) First time I heard this was at a warehouse party near Wellesley St., around 6am, after working nightshift at 7West Cafe. Vince Ailey's friend was DJing. Can't remember his name but was a towering spanish guy, great guy. The way he expertly slowly drifted these two minutes of drum intro into the last song. I was dancing non-stop and when that India vocal came in- WOW!!Tommy Musto- "Take Some Time Out" feat. vocals by Arnold Jarvis (1987) This vocal still gives me goosebumps!! Was a fav at many warehouse jams!remixed by Bush II Bush- "You're Gonna Miss Me" (2007) Original by Turntable Orchestra ‎– "You're Gonna Miss Me" (1988) Love the original the best but don't have a clean, good quality digital copy and my vinyl's all scratched up. This is a really good remix bringing modern day tight, bright sounds to this classic vocal.Bang The Party- "Bang-Bang You're Mine" (1990) First time I heard this was at my pal, Moses' house, we were wrecked and he was mixing this and Fingers Inc tracks. We were all 16yrs old and couldn't believe this house music stuff!!cover by Xakosa- "Miss Me" feat. vocals by Kenny Thomas (2013) Original by Turntable Orchestra ‎– "You're Gonna Miss Me" (1988) This is such a good cover with a jackin' beat, had to include also even though played another version already. Back in the day, DJs like AKI and PTS would tease you by playing parts of a track, 5-6 times during the night- just a sliver, a few beats each time, just enough of a hook. That's how they broke tracks! By the 5th time, everyone was so excited that the whole room was bouncing with hands in the air!Bobby D'Ambrosio‎– "Moment Of My Life" feat. vocals by Michelle Weeks (1997) ‎ This is one of the most uplifting vocal house tracks out there! Michelle Weeks baby!! Man, there are probably 250 classic house tracks I'd love to put in mixes if I only had clean digital versions. One can dream.M.A.W.- "I Get Lifted" feat. vocals by Barbara Tucker remixed by John Ciafone (1994) Don't know a house dj worth his salt that doesn't have two dozen Masters At Work vinyl records. Priceless track. Feelin' this?Masters At Work or M.A.W.(Little Louie Vega & Kenny Dope Gonzalez)- "I Can't Get No Sleep" feat. vocals by India (1993) Had to include the original. First time we heard this was years before that David Morales remix played earlier. We were at "Kat Klub", just south west of Church St & Queen St E. Kevin Williams, rubbed the celophone cover off of the record on his jeans and SLAMMED this down. He could MIX!! Kevin was actually the first LIVE house DJ i had heard at 16 at "GO GO's", in the 'White Room' on Richmond St & Duncan. He BURNED through records with fast change ups. At the end of the night, Jason Palma said there was a STACK of records in a pile beside him OUTSIDE of their sleeves!! He mixes with a frenzy! Jason told that story and I felt it on the dance floor but wasn't privy to the DJ booth ; ) I got in with my cousin's 21yr old ID, I guess since every Chinese guy at that time looked the same ; ) Great for me!Thompson & Lenoir (LNR)- "Can't Stop The House" (1987) LNR, same guys that made the warehouse classic "Work It To The Bone"!! Wish I had a clean copy of that! First time Jim and I heard this was at 616 Yonge St., around Wellesley. When AKI threw this down, we almost put our fists through the wall it was that exciting!! FLIPPED OUT! That's HOUSE MUSIC. ‎Murk (Oscar G & Ralf Falcon)/ Liberty City *moniker– "Some Lovin'" (1992) I loved this track so much that for a whole summer, every warehouse I went to, I 'requested' this track. Drove AKI and the rest nuts. But this vocal was SOOOOOOO DIRTY!!! That MURK feel, those baselines!! Then we saw Liberty City perform it live at The OZ on Mercer St.Jestofunk-"Stellar Funk" remixed by Lazzaro (1997) This congo instrumental I played the crap out of back in the vinyl days, mixed it with dozens of different vocals. My personal policy is NEVER REPEAT a combo and it's brought joy to every situation. Great track!!Joe Smooth- "The Promised Land" feat. vocals by Anthony Thomas (1987) What this track does to you is HOUSE MUSIC. Beautiful in every way. Can listen to this and have listened to this OVER AND OVER AGAIN.Instrumental mix by M.A.W. (date?) M.A.W.-River Ocean‎– "Love & Happiness" (Yemaya Y Ochún) feat. vocals by India (1994) Jim bought doubles of this also and he played the crap out of it! Like a great dessert that's good with EVERY meal. Tracks like this make mixing so much fun because each new combo is a rebirth in emotions.Inner City- "Big Fun" (1988) was when original by Kevin Saunderson was made, but this remix was made in (2003) by Juan Atkins First time I heard this was at Focus on Joseph St around Wellesley. Nope not the 'Focus' at City Hall, that was before my time. Play a few bars and people go MENTAL on the dancefloor! Infectious.dub mix remixed by Soul Clap Raze- "Break 4 Love" (2011) vocal mix remixed by Soul Clap Raze- "Break 4 Love" (2011) Original (1988) Raze- "Break 4 Love" feat. vocals by Keith Thompson I LOVE EVERY VERSION of the original also, the full vocal, the instrumental bringing out this timeless baseline and the spanish female vocal version. Jim bought these remixes and I just lost it. Can't believe Soul Clap got the original vocal by Keith Thompson. They keep the original sounds but brought it to the current times. Like the beginning of the dub and didn't like the beginning of the vocal, so I mixed them together. The original is the best but will have to save for another time.remixed by Michel Cleis 'Floreo'(2010) original M.A.W.-River Ocean‎– "Love & Happiness" (Yemaya Y Ochún) feat. vocals by India (1994) Jim had double records of this original MAW vocal! This remix revived this track for us!Murk (Oscar G & Ralf Falcon)- "Tried So Hard" feat. vocals by Bobby Pruit (1993) This track reminds me of one of the 1st time I met Vince Ailey, a great Toronto House DJ & producer but back then he was one of the BADDEST dancers! And not that hip-hop dancing to house music crap, real house dancing. We were at a PTS party on Duncan, south of Richmond. The ceilings were low and sweat was dripping off it. That was nasty, but the MUSIC was so addictive, no one left till after 5am!!Kerri Chandler & Johnny McDougald- "Something Wrong" (1992) Killer track! Chandler is a brick layer, this is a foundation dub. New house lovers are gonna say "WTF??!!" Jim and I often wonder when we hear a wicked track.. 'how did they come up with this track? the ideas? the sounds?' We should start producing so we can make someone else think that. Hopefully soon...Fingers Inc. (Larry Heard, Ron Wilson & Robert Owens) ‎– "Music Take Me Up" feat. vocals by Robert Owens (1985) My first exposure to house in a serious way was Fingers tracks, think over a dozen like 'So Glad', 'What About This Love', 'Distant Planet', 'A Path', 'Mysteries of Love, 'Can You Feel It' and the list is endless. Tracks got attention those days. We burned the grooves off these records!!Mondo Grosso- "Souffles H" remixed by M.A.W. (1995) How many MAW tracks in this mix?? Little Louie Vega & Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez are so sick!! How many house tracks copied their swing? Standing on the shoulders of Giants! Let it grow!!remixed by Tricky Disco- "Tricky Disco" (1990) Love this sexy sax mix! Didn't like this track till it wasn't being played any longer.Jaydee- "Plastic Dreams" (1992) This is an anthem with killer keys!!original M.A.W. & Lem Springsteen- "Nite Life" feat. vocals by Kim English (1994) remixed by Armand Van Helden (1994) Love this vocal!! All our fav house djs in the past played this track. Can't stop dancing to this.Blaze- "So Special" (1990) This was one of my first records and has so many great memories attached to it.Eddie Lewis & Kerri Chandler- "I Need You" feat. vocals by Kamar (1993) Nothing like seeing a smokey dark room with over a hundred people with hands in the air and singing along! House Karaoke!!Cajmere- "Brighter Days" feat. vocals by Dajae (1992) remixed by Karizma & DJ Spen (2011) Karizma smashed it with this remix!! He kept all the original elements and turbo boosted the thump of this gorgeous vocal!Dodha & DJ Spen- "Inrowd" (2013) This is not a classic instrumental but reminded me of the old days with it's feel and sound. Actually reminded me of Mateo & Matos' track "Raw Elements", gotta get that vinyl on Discogs!original Jay Williams, Nelson Roman & Rob Hanning- "Sweat" feat. vocals by Jay Williams (1990) JoJoFlores-Rmx (1999?) 'Sweat' reminds me of this club in North York, just outside of Toronto, but now part of the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). "Inner City" was a wicked club and one of the first to play house. And the dancers there were incredible!! It was that time when everyone got tailored dress pants made and they all had slight to ridiculous bell bottoms. But it seemed so cool at the time watching these guys dance. Jay Williams' vocals on this are legendary and JoJo made this killer remix that made this vocal alive again!Martin Solveig- "Afro Deep" (1999) This is not a classic track but I played the crap out of this congo instrumental. The house feel can be expressed in limitless ways.original Show Me Love feat. vocals by Robin S (1993) remixed by Steve Angello & Laidback Luke (2008) Jim played this remix for the first time at a party a few years ago and EVERYONE went bananas at a certain part near the beginning. You'll definitely KNOW when you FEEL it.Nightmares On Wax- "Aftermath" (1990) This reminds me of a dance my friends DJ'ed at at Jarvis Collegiate near Wellesley. That was a party and we were all into HOUSE and danced like crazy. My friend, Noel Nanton (AN INCREDIBLE HOUSE DJ & PRODUCER), got me into house at 16 and took me to go see Kevin Williams at GO-GO's and some friends had great friends at Jarvis Collegiate and we bonded with tons of house music.Scotti Deep/ Fathoms N.Y. *moniker- "Braniak" (1995) Jim and I went BONKERS when we heard this for the 1st time at a warehouse party. Think it was at the 4th and 5th on Richmond St. It was such a raw and techy bouncy charger!original Romanthony- "Bring U Up" (1995) remixed by Deetron (2011) I don't know how many Romanthony records we own but he made some great ones. God Rest his Soul. This remix by DeeTron brought this track back to the current state of affairs. Love remixes of classics that preserve the feel but make it fresh with higher quality of sounds.Fingers Inc.- "Bring Down The Walls" feat. vocals by Robert Owens (1986) Bought this digital copy from iTunes. Got every Fingers vinyl! This got so played out it almost sounded commercial. But for those who haven't heard it for years or for the first time- WATCH OUT.John Rocco- "Move" (1987) I first heard this at Jim's house, this was when FreeStyle + House was the sound. We got into it probably by '95. Best memory of this track live was when Kenny Glasgow, now famous 1/2 of Art Department, dropped this right from the beginning at The Wellington, on Wellington, south of Spadina & King St. Toronto history. Killer thumpin' intro. I never mix this track cause I want to hear that beginning.---------------Reach out to us and comment.

The Bill Kelly Show Podcast: The Ontario government is moving to activate an “emergency brake” for four weeks across the entire province in response to rising COVID-19 cases and strained capacity at intensive care units, multiple sources tell Global News. While the move came after an hours-long meeting of the Ontario cabinet on Wednesday, several health-care professionals in the province have pleaded for government intervention in recent weeks. Many of the logistical details were still being sorted out Wednesday night. However, government and political party sources said the emergency measure, as of Wednesday night, would take effect as of 12:01 a.m. on Saturday. The sources said the restrictions will generally be similar to what is seen in the grey lockdown level of Ontario’s COVID-19 response framework. GUEST: Dr. Peter Juni (YOU-knee), Director of Ontario’s Science Table and a Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at the University of Toronto - The Canadian government is making moves to strengthen Canada’s vaccine manufacturing capacity — but it won’t happen anytime soon. The $415 million in federal funding, announced Wednesday, will go towards helping Sanofi build a new vaccine production facility in Toronto, which would eventually have the tools to produce, fill-and-finish, and inspect vaccines on a large scale. Sanofi, which already has a manufacturing location in North York, Ont., will also receive $55 million from the Ontario government. The company itself will provide more than $455 million to create and maintain 1,225 jobs, and invest at least $79 million a year to fund Canadian research and development. Influenza vaccines will be the main product produced at the new Toronto facility. GUEST: Dr. Lori Turnbull, Director, School of Public Administration with Dalhousie University - The roar of traffic, aircraft and even ringing telephones are linked to negative health effects.

The Hidden Truth of Men’s Emotional Pain & the Red Pill

Bear Psychology podcast

Let's talk about why we fail to see the emotional pain that men live with every day.  Beliefs can tie us in knots and render us blind to the struggles of others when we fail to look more closely with an open mind and heart.  Documentary film-maker Cassie Jaye's most notable film "The Red Pill" forced her to re-examine her beliefs about the Men's Rights Movements.  She started her journey with one notion in her mind only to discover the very real pain and suffering that men experience when they are abused and mistreated, directed into dangerous work, or facing violent circumstances. The statistics around the dangers of life for men show that: 1 in 6 are sexually assaulted, they are more likely to experience violent assaults, are 93% more likely to die on the job than women, account for 73% of suicides, and are given longer prison terms for same/similar crimes than women. It seems that these real issues are overlooked and under-reported.  Men are told to "suck it up", "get over it", "stop whining" and are shamed into tolerating violence even in their own intimate relationships. I wonder about these frightening numbers and how they are impacting the men in our lives. I wonder about the fathers, brothers, siblings, spouses and friends who are struggling.  I wonder why these statistics are not better known. Toronto Psychologist, Dr. Yaacov Lefcoe brings a deep understanding of these issues from his readings, reflections, and clinical practice.  He will help us to navigate these concepts and learn about what the drivers of involvement are for the men who join these groups. Dr. Lefcoe will also help us to understand the motivations that lead men to become Men's Rights Activists, PUAs (Pickup artists), Game and Inner Game Theorists (closest to PUAs) and MGTOWs (Men go their own way) of which Incels (involuntary celibates) is a part of.  All of these individuals are said to have "taken" the Red Pill, which our guest Dr. Lefcoe will help us understand. We will try to gather information and be thoughtful as we try to figure out what is happening to the men in our society who are struggling, feeling hurt, alienated and distressed.  Without this, we fail men who are struggling with their identity and this can lead to further failures at building healthy and meaningful relationships. On April 23, 2018, 25 year old Alek MInassian drove a rented van down Yonge Street in North York, Ontario killing 10 people and injuring 16 in a deadly vehicular attack.  Upon apprehension by police, Minassian began demanding that the officer shoot him "in the head!"  This did not occur and instead he was taken into custody by a level-headed officer on the scene.  Following the attack a Facebook post revealed that he identified himself as an "incel" or involuntary celibate.  His anger during the attack was largely focused on female pedestrians, who he perceived had rejected him and other "incel" men. This type of event leaves victims, survivors and community devastated and further disenfranchises men who are legitimately having difficulty fitting in and trying to establish themselves in a satisfying way in their lives, communities, relationships. We need to better understand these issues and develop healthier and more promising roads for men to take while they develop and mature into the best they can become.   Links & Resources: Dr. Yaacov Lefcoe, CPsych, Psychologist, Toronto, ON https://www.yaacovlefcoe.com/ Cassie Jaye's Ted Talk on learning about the Men's Rights Movement: https://youtu.be/3WMuzhQXJoY Toronto Van Attack – April 23, 2018  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toronto_van_attack#Suspect The Red Pill – A Cassie Jaye Documentary: http://theredpillmovie.com/
