Good morning to readers, Kyiv remains in Ukrainian hands.

Today’s issue – in honor of AAPI heritage month – revolves around what it’s like to be an Asian journalist in Ukraine.

... in a weird way, I found it liberating.

argue referee calls? trash each others teams?

let out-catting each other be the gold standard for masculinity in 2024 😂

New research shows that the 2023 Canadian link tax has already failed – just like all the others - when will they lean?

FYI - I worked on 2 different shows in & after those lived work experiences - told everyone I could - don't agree to go on these shows. It's almost all scripted, not reality. Crews are forced to put pressure on voluntary participants - who rarely know WTF they're signing up for & producers exploit naivety. Don't chase easy fame/easy money - they both come at high personal costs. Don't agree to be traumatized on TV, for money. You'll regret it.

You guys.

I'm so bone tired after another day of packing up that POD, so apologies for not replying, or simply replying with a "like." I can barely read, let alone type.

So, with that, I shall collapse, but not before posting another dopey gif.

POD #2 for our furniture comes tomorrow, as do my twins, down from BC to help us! We leave in 5 days!
Have a good evening. 😴

🇨🇦 Why does the government need access to the individual medical records of every Nova Scotia patient? 🤔

Premier Tim Houston's Conservative govt has passed a law [] under the Financial Measures Act that grants his govt access to all of your personal medical records, forcing doctors to breach patient confidentiality. All records. Even private conversations about fertility; or substance abuse; or gender reassignment.

I got so busy packing that I nearly forgot to do my famous dopey gif!

Holy crap, we leave in 6 days!

Here you go, and have a wonderful evening.

Today in Labor History May 20, 1776: The Mohawks, under the leadership Joseph Brandt (Thayendanegea), defeated the American Revolutionaries at the Battle of the Cedars (on the St. Lawrence River). A day earlier, Benedict Arnold, commanding the American military garrison at Montreal, surrendered to a combined force of British and Indigenous troops. Brant was born into the Wolf Clan of the matrilineal society, where power was divided between male chiefs and clan mothers, with decisions made by consensus between them. Much of this history is portrayed in the wonderful novel Manituana, by Wu Ming (2007), an Italian writing collective formerly associated with the Luther Blissett Project.
