Books: "Scent of Yesterday" - A personal story of a woman who chooses to stand tall at the forefront of cultural transformation
Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, Hart House, University of Toronto: "The conference This is Paradise: Art and Artists in Toronto will explore the relationship between the urban context and local artistic cultures in Canada's largest city. Convening at the University of Toronto from May 28 to 31st, the conference includes over 75 presenters, including artists, critics, curators and scholars from across a diversity of disciplines, to focus on the ecology and conditions of emergence of the visual arts in Toronto.
Presentations will explore a range of themes: the "absence" of history, and the relationship between Toronto and other urban centres; the collective impulse in local artistic scenes, and the current pressures of "creative city" paradigms; case-studies of particular places and locales significant in the cultural ecology, as well as considerations of discourses including diaspora studies, urbanism, queer studies and feminism, and of the conditions of specific media such as DIY publishing, independent film and artists' video.
The conference will culminate with roundtable conversations about the state of art institutions in Toronto - past, present and future.
This is Paradise: Art and Artists in Toronto is presented by the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery and the University of Toronto Art Centre.
Tickets available from the UofTTix Box Office, online, by phone, or in person. More information here. "

A two-day Healthcare Summit organized by the Canada India Foundation (CIF) is being organized to build bridges between Canada and India. This is the fifth theme based Summit organized by CIF as part of the organization’s ongoing effort to keep this dialog alive, and increase relations between the two countries.
It is important to keep the dialogue going says Dr V I Lakshmanan, Chairman CIF and co-chair, Healthcare Summit. At the end of the day it is people to people contact that makes things happen, he states.
“Through the Summit, we aim to connect senior people and decision makers in the field of Healthcare from both countries. We will also be arranging one on one meetings with key delegates such as Dr. Rahul Reddy, Senior Vice President, Apollo Hospitals and Dr P Namperumalsamy, Chairman of Aravind Eye Hospital, Madurai.”
Founded eight years ago, CIF’s mandate is to work on public policy and advocacy and enhance relationship between Canada and India.
The two-day summit to be held on at the OMNI King Edward Hotel in downtown Toronto will have over 70 speakers who will address diverse health issues pertaining to South Asians, wellness and alternative care, rehabilitation, generic drugs and research collaboration.
“Generic drugs is a major topic at the Summit this year. We wanted to shed some focus on it as it a topic relevant to both Governments.
“Canada has universal care but the population is only 35 million. On the other hand, there is India with a population of 1.2 billion and a thriving middle class. Digital health is becoming a major issue and e-health is an opportunity for Indian companies to come and work with Canadian companies and the Canadian government.
According to Dr. Lakshmanan, the Summit will help to achieve quality and efficiency.
“Today the world is a global village, and it is all about what the civil society can do to bring people together, understand the challenges and see if there is synergy. As CIF, we will be putting together a report with a summary of all the discussions and deliberations that took place during the Summit and will be presenting the report to Governments of both countries.
“In terms of what the delegates themselves have – this is an opportunity for them to talk and network with senior people in the industry in both India and Canada and discuss opportunities in a wide range of areas that are primarily healthcare related.”

Releasing 10,000 baby Chinook Salmon in Port Credit Village Marina on 6th May 2015."It won't look like much when we do it. We have been raising them in a small pen since April 11. All we'll do is flip the pen oven. During the past four weeks these salmon have doubled in size and 'imprinted' on the river. For now, they will be eating a ton of midges (which is awesome!). Soon they will be eating alewife, a herring-like invasive species that's plentiful in Lake Ontario. In about three years, they will return home to the Credit River to spawn as 25 to 35 pound adults. We want to thank City staff at the marina who volunteer many hours after work and on weekends to support this community project." - Brian Lambie.Posted by StarBuzz on Friday, May 8, 2015
