The provincial health officer (PHO) has issued new guidelines to support compliance with orders on business closures and gatherings, under the Public Health Act. The new guidelines for municipal bylaw officers and other compliance officers give clear instruction on warnings, public education and fines – and what can be issued by whom – to make sure there is compliance with the PHO’s orders and, if necessary, they are enforced consistently throughout B.C. communities

World Backup Day is a very special day, the focus is to showcase the significance of the role of data in our everyday life. It is important to take regular backups so that you don’t miss out on anything crucial.  It is celebrated on the 31st of March each year.

Backup is nothing but a second copy of your file and it is kept in a safe place like a computer, smartphone or even cloud. The backup device can also be an external hard device. Usually, people do not get time to take a backup of their important documents, file, video, pictures regularly. Hence, World Backup Day ensures your precious data is well safe without any damage.

Back up is more then computers its people and projects .

Cassidy Megan created the idea of Purple Day in 2008, motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy. Cassidy’s goal is to get people talking about epilepsy in an effort to dispel myths and inform those with seizures that they are not alone. The Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia came on board in 2008 to help develop Cassidy’s idea which is now known as the Purple Day for epilepsy campaign.

Grief is a natural response to losing someone or something that’s important to you. You may feel a variety of emotions, like sadness or loneliness. And you might experience it for a number of different reasons. Maybe a loved one died, a relationship ended, or you lost your job. Other life changes, like chronic illness or a move to a new home, can also lead to grief.

People are all different but we can all heal. The truth is always important.
