Blogged by Ashton Deroy: July 13th 2017, I am reading the huffington post for the first time ever about Canada’s amazing governor general Julie Payette. In case you didn’t know, this woman has lived an incredible life. Apart from being in the government she is a philanthropist, an advocate for positive technological movements & a lifetime explorer. Here are three things you didn’t know about Julie Payette.

  1. Julie Payette was the first Canadian woman to go to the International Space Station in 1999. She went up a second time in 2009.
  2. Payette was awarded an honorary doctorate of science (DSc) from the University of Lethbridge in 2005. (According to WikiPedia)
  3. Although she is a woman governor general she is not the first woman to hold this role. Julie Payette is the fourth woman to hold the role of governor general in Canada.

To conclude Julie Payette is an incredible woman with a spectacular adventure that lead her to being Canada’s fourth woman to hold the title of Governor General. However I am a huge fan and I do hope this is not the last time we do see her in the news. As you know from previously reviewing Space Between Us & comments on space documentaries on YouTube. I am a huge fan of space travel in both fiction and real life. Which has made me a fan of Julie Payette.

 

CHIASSON, PAUL . “Julie Payette Named Next Governor General Of Canada.” Huffington post. N.p., 13 July 2017. Web. 13 July 2017. <Huffington Post article >. This is the article that taught me about the incredible journey of Canada’s fourth female governor general Julie Payette from space to government. This article highlights some but not all of this woman’s incredible life journey to being appointed Canada’s governor general. The article was published by PAUL CHIASSON/CANADIAN PRESS and I have to say for the Huffington Post it is a well written article. Previously in other political coverage I have accused this Newspaper of being sensationalist and bluntly wrong in some cases.

 

Wikipedia. “Julie Payette.” Wikipedia. N.p., 13 July 2017. Web. 13 July 2017. This is the Wikipedia article that informed me about Julie Payette’s educational background, honors achieved & Space flight experience. From this Wikipedia entry you can really gather more on Julie Payette’s incredible journey to such an honorable position within Canada. Wikipedia is a website with multiple contributors per entry so we were not able to include an author credit to this as Wikipedia indexes multiple references, from multiple contributors to ensure accuracy of Wikipedia entries.

Ashton Deroy: Weirdest thing I buy at the drug store

 

Why do I buy diabetic socks? That is like so weird! Actually, the compression relieves pain in my feet from the stress of running, inactivity or over activity. 

Relief of this pain has helped with the quality of sleep, relaxation and even meditation. 

Compression socks are a must have for athletes, Factory workers, Call center workers. 

Check out some Amazon products below:

Free food & Drinks so come on by Business students.

I will be stopping by to the group today as I have been over exercising recent and I need to take a break before I hurt something!

Seneca Student Federation Process becoming over socially regulated.

Socialized process.png

The above picture is a link to my Instagram page. If you attend Seneca College you probably see the process of the Student elections happening. 

A process the Businessphere has been following quite closely. However having talked to the candidates here are some changes being speculated for the next Seneca Student Federation election to come.

  1. No pictures in the digital voting process – Yes in order to fight discrimination, the system is at it again with another unnecessary change. Why dress up? Be formal? Or even have presentation skills? People are going to vote for a piece of text instead! The idea is stupid as hell and only serves to make the students more blind in future ballads. 
  2. Further socialized promotional practices– They already have to put their posters beside their competitors making the promotional act of hanging a poster stupid in the first place! Now it is being said that there will be further restrictions on SSF promotions for elections to move forward. Is this all in the interest of fairness? Or all in the interest of easy wins? 

Everyone having their poster in the same spot is the same as no one having their poster up…

What the election system actually needs? 

  • Candidate websites – MOST PEOPLE DON’T EVEN KNOW THE CANDIDATE PLATFORMS! They are insulting college level intelligence by not offering a solid backing to their cliche Student campaign promises. By the way Everyone on the same website is the same as everyone not having a website! 
  • A Panel – Put the candidates side by side with their competitors and lets have discussion. See who shines through! 
  • More journalism – There needs to be an information release on wins, losses & etc. We need to distribute the information through Facebook or WordPress so that information is more public.

Sohail Zafar Shaikh

Each of the pictures link to a campaign page or blog post for the Seneca Student Federation picks I have for the upcoming SSF election. The candidates I have picked are Sohail Zafar for Board of Director’s spot, Viktorria Kovalchuk for Vice President & lastly Roma Rorssf

Viktorria – I support her for her elite background, ideals for improving quality of life at Seneca and fundraising ideas. 

Sohail Zafar – Is in my kickboxing class, a respectful guy. He is not running for a paid position but he does have great ideas for diversifying our food menus. 

Roma Rorssf – I almost supported her adversary but because Roma took my interview and Nicole didn’t. I chose to support Roma instead. Here is an idea, support the people who support you! 

Remember to vote on March 20th at Seneca Newnham campus.
