It's good to see some small towns taking steps to protect endangered species. Sadly, my town (Sauble Beach) undid years of hard work for the environment.
Kincardine has the greenlight to fly the Blue Flag at Station Beach this summer, while neighbouring Sauble Beach was ordered last week to remove the international symbol of responsible beach management.

Downward-facing dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana) is one of those yoga poses that you either love or hate. But it’s also hard to avoid this pose, especially if you are in a group yoga class. But just because you struggle with downward-facing dog or find it hard…

There's a lot of attention on MERS in South Korea, but many forget that there were already 2 cases in the U.S. in 2014, and many more in the Middle East since 2012.

The wrists (and ankles) are often neglected in yoga. Take some time before/after each practice to give them a little attention.

Sauble Beach: former home of the endangered piping plover.

The town council has "been provided with a lot of scientific evidence and advice from environmental experts, the [Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry], and [Environmental Defence Canada], and we urged them to make the right decision. Instead they decided to vote in favour of destroying dune habitat and habitat for endangered species."

Not all people who hurt themselves (e.g. cutting) intend to commit suicide. For many, it's a way to deal with emotional pain.
