No Life Like It

This Week’s Articles of Interest

Reading the news is something I have become accustomed to doing over the years. Before I started the magazine, I read a lot of books. While my booking reading is limited today, I am now an avid news reader and spend a significant portion of my day scrolling, searching, visiting online news sites. I also listen to BBC News during the day. The radio station I listen to while I work has BBC news breaks.

Hence, when we went into our second and third lockdown in Ontario, I was not surprised as I had learned what was happening in other countries. I thought I would start sharing five stories I found interesting each week from other media outlets. With our team being very small, we can’t cover topics this broad.

The articles are vastly different. I thought they were well-written and informative.

Belarus Plane Incident

I was working while this was happening, and it left me astonished. To the depths, a country will go. That is all I am going to write. This is an ongoing story as countries discuss and continue to issue sanctions on Belarus. Read the article here.

Cyndi Mills

Admittedly the Queen of Typos, Cyndi Mills strives for none, but one or two always seems to slip in. She apologizes! Over the last 27 years Cyndi has had the opportunity to move around the country with her husband, Scott and their four children. Having lived in Chilliwack, Edmonton, London, and Petawawa. She stumbled into the world of journalism by accident – looking for a career that could give her the flexibility to work from home to be with her children and support her husband's military career. Cyndi is also a military parent as her two oldest children are in the military. Raising her third and fourth teenagers, she tries to keep sane by walking, gardening, writing, and spending time with her family while running Canadian Military Family Magazine.
