The Brink



 Imprimer   Envoyer 

Oops. This isn't really about our very own Tim Brink, the star and la voix forever in our hearts. It's more about little beings we've taken for granted far too long. Now we're in danger of losing them forever. Can we bring them back from the brink?
Yes, this is just a reminder that we've lost 95% of our Monarch butterflies. Here's what David Suzuki suggests we do to help bring them back from the brink of extinction: Get some Milkweed seeds right now and plant them as soon as spring gets itself straightened around. And his website has got seeds for us. Three types: common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca), swamp milkweed (Asclepias incamata) and butterfly milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa). All three are native to Ontario and Quebec. I just ordered some: three packs for $20, free shipping, and a feeling I'm supporting a good cause. You can too, at http://store.davidsuzuki.org/

WILLS - TODAY!
How will you make your will? The Eaton Valley CLC offers a workshop all about wills. The speaker is Sarah Dougherty, from Educaloi. It's April 20 - today! - at 6:30 p.m., at the CLC (far end of Pope Memorial School), 523 Stokes, in Bury.

POCKET POEM
Thursday, April 21, is the day to stick a poem in your pocket, and share it with others as you go through your day. That's a suggestion from the League of Canadian Poets. To learn more, visit poets.ca/pocketpoems. Here's a little one from me to you:

ENGLISH AT WORK
If you're reading this, I imagine you have some English-language skills. Being bilingual or multilingual is often a job asset. But how to make sure your prospective employer really appreciates how well you speak and write English? And if English is your first language, are you confident about your French language skills?

Enter the Zone multilingue. This one-stop booth is a new resource at this year's Salon Priorité-Emploi Estrie on April 22 and 23. It offers job seekers on-site second-language assessment (both English and French, both spoken and written). It also tells you which employers at the event have job postings that require second-language skills. Education students from Bishop's University will conduct the on-site assessments.

You emerge from the zone with your second-language assessment in hand, and can head straight for the booths of employers who are looking for someone with your language skills.

This is a first for the Salon in Sherbrooke, and it was initiated by the CEDEC, who has organized the service in job fairs in the Capitale-Nationale et de Chaudière-Appalaches since 2006. It's carried out with a whole handful of partners, including Emploi-Québec and Townshippers' Association. And yes, the Priorité-Emploi Estrie organizers hope to see more English speakers participate this year. If you're a job seeker, it might be worth it! Visit www.prioriteemploiestrie.qc.ca for more information about the Salon.
