Interesting article. One thing companies can do is help encourage exercise. My wife works for the Ministry of Health and they are currently running a 10,000 step program

It seems that even facts; verifiable facts, don't seem to make much of a difference.

Research shows the appeal of untestable beliefs, and how it leads to a polarized society

Gumbercules? I love that guy!
Introduction
I've got a few different blogs if you want to check them out: The Vespa Diaries(A personal blog),  Quest For Fiver (a blog about living a healthy lifestye) and now The Night Terrors (My webcomic).  I also contribute to Maple Glazed Kiwi (A Book/Movie Blog). You can learn a bit about me on Facebook...or by asking me. Look, just check out the blogs, and I'm sure you will be thoroughly confused.

Thanks!

We loved the amount of selection that this Roots store had available, and would have loved to have browsed the selection looking for some of the great Roots merchandise. But alas, we were virtually attacked by what I can only assume were commissioned sales people, because it was like they were buzzing flies, and we were the rotting carrion they were hoping to feast on. I couldn't touch an article of clothing without one of the staff member jumping in between me and the clothing shouting that they could find a size for me. My wife tried to look at a hoodie and a staff member jumped in between me and her offering to hold the hanger while she tried on the clothes. Added to this unpleasant situation was the fact that there was an irate and screaming customer trying to return an article of clothing that was no doubt force-fed to her in the past, and now she was suffering from buyers remorse. By-the-way...I am not being overly dramatic for effect. The staff at this store would follow you around virtually one step behind you, offering unwanted input and advice and would not leave you alone! Hey Roots: Want to sell some clothing? Let people browse your merchandise without being accosted. By comparison, the Roots store in Victoria was a dream. Staff greeted you warmly, and offered their services if needed. I only wish that store had the selection that the one on Robson had.

We've been using Zaminka for the last four years, whenever we need to go back to Canada for a visit. The staff there are friendly, professional, and ALWAYS take excellent care of our two dogs. Whenever we go to pick up our dogs after the trip, they always look wonderful and healthy, as the staff will ask if we would like them bathed and groomed on pick-up. We're often told of some of our dog's various antics while at the Dog Motel which says to us that the staff take their jobs seriously, and they truly care about them. We will continue to use Zaminka for as long as they show such excellent care and concern for our pets.
