Tiger Temple where Monks live with the deadly big cat

The beautiful big cats are pictured at the controversial Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, where around 100 live alongside Buddhist monks. Many were brought to the reserve as cubs and have grown up around humans. But even so these pictures show just how remarkably close these fearsome creatures can get to their keepers. 

Tiger Temple, or Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua, is a Theravada Buddhist temple in western Thailand that was founded in 1994 as a forest temple and sanctuary for wild animals, among them several tigers, the majority of which are Indochinese tigers. Founded in 1994, the Tiger Temple has attracted criticism from some wildlife groups who claim it is an illegal breeding facility and that the tigers are not sufficiently cared for.  

The first cub arrived in 1999 after her mother was killed by poachers nearby. She died, but others have since arrived and the tiger population has gradually grown. The centre has become a tourist attraction where visitors can pay a fee to have their picture taken alongside the animals.

RBC's Gordon Nixon, BNS's Richard Waugh, TD's Ed Clark Among Top 10 highest-paid banking executives in North America

Richard Nixon                   Richard Waugh                    Ed Clark
New survey says Canadian bankers ranked among some of the highest-paid banking executives in North America last year, with three in the top 10. A Bloomberg Markets magazine survey puts Royal Bank's Gordon Nixon in fourth spot with a total pay package of $13.1 million — up 25 per cent from 2011, when he was in eighth place.

Bank of Nova Scotia's Richard Waugh was seventh with $11.5 million, followed by the TD Bank's Ed Clark, in eighth place with $11.2 million. Clark's pay actually went down by almost five per cent from the year before, as did that of the other three Canadian bank CEO's on Bloomberg's top 20 list.

CIBC's Gerald McCaughey took home $9.6 million, nearly eight per cent less the year before, which put him 11th on the list. Bank of Montreal head William Downe took in $9.5 million, which put him 12th, and National Bank's Louis Vachon was 17th at $7.5 million.

However, no Canadian bank CEO came close to matching the salary of the list's top earner, Lloyd Blankfein, who was paid $26.9 million — a 73 per cent raise for his work in turning around the fortunes of Goldman Sachs.

Inspiration Reel: Where Do We Find Fulfilment in Life?

This question can be vague and not to be taken as ‘how we find fulfilment  or ‘when we find fulfilment’. To help us with, the word fulfilment described in this article relates to satisfaction, actualization, motivation, desire and drive.  So lets us ask ourselves where we find fulfilment (satisfaction, actualization, motivation, desire and drive) in life? Some are in drugs, alcoholism  social media such as Facebook, twitter, YouTube, blog sites. Others in sports, porn, friends, people, spouse, family, faith, job and the list goes. It will amaze you ‘where’ some of us find that feeling of ‘royal highness’. What I do think is that, being purposeful in life makes us appreciate what is real and what is superficial. 

The Death of Dr. Henry Morgentaler, the Abortion Revolutionist

Dr. Henry who helped closed 'abortuary' in Canada has finally headed to the mortuary. Though seen by some as hero and others as murderer. It is said that the two decades of relentless activism of Dr. Henry Morgentaler on abortion right for women changed the legal landscape of Canada and eventually led to the 1988 landmark Supreme Court of Canada decision that gave women the right to obtain abortion care. Morgentaler, who was born in Lodz, Poland, and came to Canada after the Second World War has died at age 90, more than four decades after breaking the law at the time and opening the country's first abortion clinic in Montreal. 

Canada Tells Iran to go to Hell by banning all Imports and Exports

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird has announced new sanctions against Iran, including a total ban on imports and exports.

"Canada continues to have grave and sincere concerns over Iran's nuclear program and their abhorrent human rights records and their continued support for international terrorism around the world," Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said Wednesday when he announced the measures in the foyer of the House of Commons.

Baird said that in round after round of international talks, Iran has failed to engage meaningfully while the risk posed by its nuclear activities increases. The Iranian government has offered only "false promises and empty gestures," Baird said.

"Today we are compelled to take further actions against this reckless and irresponsible regime," he said. Although, Iran denies that either its nuclear programs or reactors will damage life, livestocks or properties. (CBC)

School of Thought: The Loneliness of a Woman by Anaïs Nin

“Man can never know the loneliness a woman knows. Man lies in the woman's womb only to gather strength, he nourishes himself from this fusion, and then he rises and goes into the world, into his work, into battle, into art. He is not lonely. He is busy. The memory of the swim in amniotic fluid gives him energy, completion. Woman may be busy too, but she feels empty. Sensuality for her is not only a wave of pleasure in which she is bathed, and a charge of electric joy at contact with another. When man lies in her womb, she is fulfilled, each act of love a taking of man within her, an act of birth and rebirth, of child rearing and man bearing. Man lies in her womb and is reborn each time anew with a desire to act, to be. But for woman, the climax is not in the birth, but in the moment man rests inside of her.” 
― Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

Canada Sliced by Costa Rica in a Game of Soccer

Canada was again left to rue a slew of missed chances as a penalty converted by Costa Rica’s Jairo Arrieta in the 16th minute proved to be the winner as Costa Rica earned a 1:0 victory in a Men’s International Friendly at Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium.

Centre-backs André Hainault and Doneil Henry had a number of headed efforts from close range for Canada – but neither defender could find the back of the net.

Both teams finished the match with 10 men after Nik Ledgerwood and Kenny Cunningham were sent off following an altercation in the 75th minute.

Costa Rican goalscorer Arrieta had a great chance to put his side ahead by two late in the second half – but his header from 15 yards crashed onto the cross-bar.

Relationship Digest: Damnedest Things Women do For Love

What are the weird, crazy and bizarre things women do for love? How far would you go to bond with a man? Do women have limits? Why do women do what they do? Is it for love or for security or women have lost it. So, while many women do the same thing, everyone has their own reasons. According to Rebekah, ‘I do everything within reason for my boyfriend, but that's because I love him; not because I feel insecure. The only place I do feel insecure is internally’.

Featured: National Anthem Canada

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

On Canada Day, July 1, 1980, 'O Canada!' was proclaimed the National Anthem of Canada, 100 years after it's debut performance in 1880 for St. Jean-Baptiste Day celebrations. Composed by Calixa Lavallée, French lyrics were written by Sir Adolphe-Basile Routhier.  It has been noted that the opening theme of "O Canada" bears a strong resemblance to the "March of the Priests" from the opera The Magic Flute, composed in 1791 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and that Lavallée's melody was inspired by Mozart's tune.

Bayernization: The Robben Equation

Arjen Robben scores a dramatic late winner as Bayern Munich beat fellow German side Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final. The former Chelsea man, who missed a penalty against his old club in the final last year, found the net with just 90 seconds remaining to settle an end-to-end contest packed with drama and incident to secure a fifth European crown for the Bundesliga champions.

When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter.He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.

Hooray! Citizenship for 12 million US illegal immigrants

A sweeping immigration bill that would offer a chance of citizenship to millions living in the US illegally has taken a stride forward in Congress.

Public Holiday, here I come: The Significance of Victoria Day

Today is known as Victoria day and is marked as a public holiday at a national level. Queen Victoria was born on May 24, 1819. Following the death of three uncles and her father, she became Queen of the United Kingdom on June 20, 1837 and reigned until her death on January 22, 1901. Victoria is still the longest-reigning monarch of the United Kingdom. The monarch's birthday has been celebrated in Canada since before the beginning of Queen Victoria's reign. However, the date has changed over the years, recently the Monday before May 25 has been adopted as Victoria Day, which is a Canadian statutory holiday. Also, it marks the unofficial start of the cottage season where cases of beer (as in 2-4 cases) are consumed by hard working Canadians. For others, the long Victoria Day weekend marks the end of the winter and the unofficial start of the spring or summer season. In some cities, fireworks displays or parades are held to mark Victoria Day. One of the most notable parades is held in the city of Victoria, British Columbia, which was named after Queen Victoria. Many people gather in parks to enjoy fireworks displays, which are particularly impressive in Hamilton and Toronto.

Yahoo buying Tumblr for $1.1 billion.

Billion dollar deal makes 26-year-old America's next tech tycoon: High school drop-out behind blogging site Tumblr sells it to Marissa Mayer's Yahoo! 

Yahoo Inc. has agreed to pay $1.1 billion for Tumblr, a six-year-old company with more than 100 million users but very little revenue, a deal that highlights the shifting balance of power in the technology business.

Yahoo is struggling and has changed her CEO five times since 2011.

Best Provinces In Canada To Find A Job: StatsCan Vacancy Survey Shows Where To Seek Work

Best Provinces To Find Job

Alberta is the best province or territory in Canada to look for work, according to somewhat unsurprising new data from Statistics Canada’s job vacancies survey that also shows Newfoundland has the most challenging job market in the country.
Alberta had only 1.7 job-seekers for every job opening in the three months ending in August of this year, StatsCan reported. In the same period last year, the province had 2.8 job-seekers for every job, suggesting the job situation in Alberta is improving.
At the other end of the spectrum is Newfoundland and Labrador, where there were 12.4 job-seekers for every job. The maritime province saw its job situation deteriorate, as in the same period a year earlier there were only 11.1 job-seekers per job. The national average was 5.2 job hunters for every vacancy.
The numbers represent a bit of a shift from last year, when Saskatchewan and the Yukon were tied for the most favourable job ratio (2.6 job-seekers per job), and Alberta came in third.
The data strengthens the assertion by industry groups and Alberta’s government thatthe province is experiencing a labour shortage. That view is somewhat controversial, with some economists arguing forecasts of a looming labour crunch are based on “misleading” numbers.
Other provinces that have less dynamic job markets are also potentially facing labour shortages. Despite there being 5.3 job-seekers per job in B.C., about the national average, the provincial government forecasts a 435,000-worker shortage in its mining and oil and gas sectors. HuffPost
