Oh.
MY!

If THIS is not a powerful social critique of the education system in North America, I don't know what it is!

This is something I have observed as a university student in the last few years. Being part-time on campus, I was able to see the teachers' shift in attitudes with dealing with the students in their classes through the years.

I kinda agree: it's stiffling and scary. Even as a student colleague sometimes, I felt I couldn't challenge my class colleagues: they would start angrily yelling at you, calling you names, challenging you on eveyrthing you try to say or do in works, and being rude afterwards in many other classes, social and school events, even sometimes creating a social stigma where nobody dared interacting with the person who "dared" offend and challenge them intellectually.

Yes, it was petty. I felt like in high school, not among adults reflecting on whatever we learned in classes. And I hated it.
How a simplistic, unworkable, and ultimately stifling conception of social justice took over the American college campus.

I don't accept that Tintin au Congo is banned in some places/school. It's very important for colonialism/post-colonialism studies, as well as politics studies, and...! It's important to see how the "dominant white European men" thinking had an influence in every sphere of life, even in art, in the early 20th Century. It's important to know that. It's important so we don't repeat it!

Arghhhhh!

Ohhhhh this video is interesting!

A presentation about sex empowerment, prostitution, and feminism presented as a theater piece.
In this performance, Sarah Jones brings you to the front row of a classroom in the future, as a teacher plugs in different personas from the year 2016 to show their varied perspectives on sex work. As she changes props, Jones embodies an elderly homemaker, a “sex work studies” major, an escort, a nun-turned-prostitute and a guy at a strip club for his bachelor party. It’s an intriguing look at a taboo topic, that flips cultural norms around sex i...

Bâton Rouge is normally a restaurant I like to go (the one downtown Montreal, in the Complexe Desjardins, is one of my favorite of the branch). But this one left me...dissatisfied. The service was slow! Like...suuuppeeerrr slow. And yes, they may have a menu for the kids, but because of slowness of the service, your patience will grow thin while you try to calm down toddlers and preschoolers in their chairs. The food was an average "OK", nothing to drool on...except the special lobster poutine they had: that one was pretty good! The cucumber mojito tasted more like water than a mojito, unfortunately. Overall, the rest was pretty average for our experience at this branch.

I've been going to this clinic for the last two years and a half, and Dr Simon Lupien literally saved my back from all the pain I had after my pregnancy. How can I say it other than this: he knows his shit! Pretty damn well, if I can say so. When I first started consulting him, I was at a point where I couldn't stay sit for more than an hour, otherwise I would be in an awful amount of pain in the lower part of my back. Now, I gained back some flexibility, I can stay sit for hours while working with no problem, and I don't have the pain anymore in my lower back. Of course, choosing a chiropractor/chiropractic clinic is pretty personal, it can be a hit-or-miss for many. But overall, I feel healthier and better in my body, and Dr Lupien did an amazing job making me feel comfortable and confident enough to enjoy going to my appointments. I clearly recommend him and his team.

And another nice spot in Verdun! Some would say "but another coffee shop in Verdun, there's too much of it already!" Ah-ah-ah! But no, this one is completely different from the other coffee shops on the Wellington. And let me tell you why! It's a mix between a coffee shop, where you can stop a bit, take a nice latte and grab an amazing piece of cake (the owner does a lot of the desserts she sells, and she's amazing!! Otherwise, she'll have a nice selection of tasty desserts); and a grocery, where there's an impressive selection of imported goods: chocolate, teas, spices, etc. I really love this little boutique, the owner is a gem to talk to: very polite, always some tips or story to tell you, she's just very cool! I simply love Café La Tazza, a very nice spot that was needed in Verdun!

I hope I never have to go back there again. EVER! I'll start with my only positive point of the night: the waitress was good, polite, fast to serve us. I almost pitied her, having to deal with narrow alleys between rows of tables and no space what-so-ever to do her job in a huge reception room. Even if there was many waiters that helped each others to do the food service, the restaurant had just overbooked the place with so many groups in the same room. Otherwise, the food was very average (I took the seafood casserole), my veggies were saturated with olive oil and overcooked/burned. The chocolate cheesecake was stiff and not creamy at all. My husband took the langoustine (scampi) plate, and was very disappointed with the size of it for the price he had to pay. Since it was really crowded that night, it was very difficult to talk to our neighbors at our tables. Also, if you have toddlers: this is NOT a family restaurant. Your kids will get bored, and there's no room for them to play. You can't let them roam around the tables, because they'd get in the way of the waiters. Overall, a bad experience.

The smoked meat is indeed pretty good, but nothing to go completely crazy about it! I have a problem with the place: it is always too 'crowdy'. And because of this, there's always food on the floor, and the space is pretty tight: you can touch your table neighbor by accident with your elbows or legs.

I love this English-style pub, and their fish'n'chips are just amazing! I also tried their week-end brunch, and wasn't disappointed at all!

While the poutine is simply quite amazing, it is a bit "pricey" for a fast food restaurant.
