  1. People grow up and form and interpret their own reasons for living. It is serious stuff if they think otherwise.

    Equity Pay

    First I would like to distinguish that gender equity in regards to pay is meant to bring wages together (male and female) for same work perform, then the tax and other deduction follows - equal treatment. The argument is expanded. Since there is a discrepancy in the wages, women making less, overall then, women will work longer in order to match the amounts of taxes men pay. Therefore they need to live longer to make equal tax and equal pension. The wage discrepancy also explain that a pension contribution of 7% from women and employer is different from 7% from men and employer for the same job. WHO 2015 data shows in Canada life expectance Male 80.2, female 84.1. We can say then that the tax system helps to determine when we can die. This is just a view based on the conversation.
  3. A good haul of medals for Canadians. I watched the games and waved my flag. I love the newer sports with the young people - in the spirit of the games, they are just happy to be their best, win or lose. Next time we do better in hockey.
  4. yes, you are right, we are the ones waving a flag and singing at home - I have the lyrics correct. Let the medal count roll = 7 Day 3

  7. The anthem apparently reflects ability to change to live in the now, modernized and not stay in history. We move along.
  8. I hope we bring the medals and sing the updated anthem from "in all thy sons command" with "in all of us command" Go Canada Go!!

  10. Her brand is too important and big to make such an announcement to run today. However I think she might make a go, another something to add to her repertoire
  11. I would like to say anything business (includes economics) will get you faster into your eventual chosen career. When you choose urban planning you become more specialized and with less prospect of jobs in the field of choice. Networking then becomes crucial as jobs in specialized engineering are limited. Perhaps it is to distinguish between many things including your like for a subject matter and practicality. For instance, I liked math. But, what if statistics Canada did not offer me a job. I prefer to side with the culture of the locals in South Africa "you make a plan". So, I pursued economics among others. The love for a area of study never faltered, you will find out as your journey continues. As it turns out in the end you can enjoy the best of both ends. I have a peculiar feeling you already know the answer . Good luck in your studies.
  12. I want to look at women gaining access to executive jobs in a positive light. Currently there are less job opportunities at the top and plenty of qualified women to fill executive type jobs. If there can be a level playing field for both men and women there will be a greater probability for change and less games. The dynamics will change. I don't deny women tend to want other women to have a similar experience in terms of upward movement, and it is never simple - they are not in the network sphere of those in charge. The locker talk now-infamous 'Access Hollywood' tape B Bush Entertainment Tonight on the bus by Trump is a good example - women are excluded from this crowd, however women are the subject matter and in a not so desirable way for work.
  13. Argus Still majority of executive jobs are held by men. When you compare happily attached to women (out of bounds) to women who pout their prowess (out of bounds or not) trying to get contracts and to get ahead in business, it is more difficult, and takes long to secure contracts when perceived as out of bounds. I rather put on my lipstick and high heels if it makes life easy. With more women at the top, there will come change. Indeed a welcome change to wear flats.
