    Unfinished galleries glaring stain on museum's official opening Contents UNDER PRESSURE

    Wander through the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and it's impossible not to be impressed with the building.

    Law and order is coming to WSD

    Education Minister James Allum is readying himself to bring some law and order to the Winnipeg School Division, which despite repeated warnings, has continued to conduct its business behind closed doors.

    Bath-time battle a tub of war

    I was never any good at math, but I'm pretty sure there are two kinds of people in this world.

    Dragging the river of pain in hopes of closure

    On the surface, it may seem futile, even foolish for anyone but police to be dragging the silt-choked bottom of the Red River for the remains of Manitoba's murdered or long-missing aboriginal women.

    Love potion No. 9

    Ending the talk of Evander Kane being unhappy shouldn't present much of a dilemma. Get him the puck in scoring positions and watch the correlation between growing statistics and the readiness of his smile.

    Benzema does more than score

    Karim Benzema doesn't shy away from criticism -- which, in itself is impressive given the volume of it that follows him on a day-to-day basis and the detractors who generate it.

    Bye week should be more flexible

    When your franchise quarterback is out for an undetermined amount of time, and your backup has started zero games in the CFL, it might be time to consider changing some bye-week vacation plans.

    Gut-check time for Bombers

    VANCOUVER -- His team had just lost their third straight, fifth in their last six and, oh yeah, their starting quarterback.

    From the metropolis to the preposterous

    Monday welcomes four new shows to the TV schedule, including twists on the superhero and Old West genres.

    Redrawing the map

    There's no pretending the map of Canada was drawn with indigenous rights or needs in mind. There's no need to hold a press conference to remind us that few in positions power give much credence to indigenous knowledge and perspectives (our current government clearly never got the memo).

    Corea's adventures continue with new project

    PIANIST and keyboardist Chick Corea likes adventure, but that's no surprise for those who have experienced his music over his five-decade career.

    Fest features teen lust, walrus masks and a bit of Boogaloo

    If you're working press at the Toronto International Film Festival, and I mean Working press, the festival passes in a blur, like sped-up film.

    The bitter truth

    Artificial sweeteners could be spiking blood sugar levels -- the very problem they are often used to prevent -- according to new research published last Wednesday in the journal Nature.

    Look for ways to leave mean and vulgar man

    DEAR MISS LONELYHEARTS: I've been in a relationship with my fiancé and the father of my children for seven years. He's mean, rude and vulgar, but I know that without him, I won't be able to raise my children on my own. There was a point in our relationship where I ended things with him because he got violent. I confided in a longtime friend who was a co-worker, and to my surprise, he was having the same problems with his girlfriend. He turns out to be the most amazing person I've ever known. It's like I was meeting him for the first time.

    Why not make it a day for Grenache?

    There's been a trend in the last few years for marketing/PR firms working for certain wineries or regions to cook up specific days to celebrate one particular grape or another. International Chardonnay Day was May 23, for example, and Cabernet Day was Aug. 28 this past year.

    Meaty entrées rule the menu at cosy local staple

    THERE'S been a Rib Room in the Charterhouse, in one form or another, for over 45 years -- obviously, not always under the same management or ownership. Or, for that matter, not always in the same location. On my last visit, 10 years ago it was on the west side of the hotel -- a gloomy study in brown, with a confusingly mixed performance from the kitchen, depending on the night of one's visit.

    Sixties Scoop demands an inquiry

    In one of the 11 galleries at our new, sterling display of man's inhumanity to man that has opened at what historically served as a First Nations gathering ground, there is mention of the development of children's rights as a "Turning Point" in the evolution of the global human rights zeitgeist.

    Scotland stays and questions linger

    A week ago, the Kurdistan Times warned "the British are exercising the old colonialist tongue to control the minds and dampen the aspirations of Scottish people who want to vote Yes (to independence)." And lo! It came to pass just as the Kurdistan Times predicted. The silver-tongued colonialists lured the Scots into voting No, and by a fairly healthy margin, too: 55 per cent No, 45 per cent Yes.

    Work smarter, not harder

    In an ever-changing profession, human-resource managers are continually seeking new ideas on how to assist employees to be the best they can be. With this in mind, HR professionals are now seeing the trend of "mindfulness" being introduced to more organizations. Mindfulness is described both as a mental state as well as a set of skills and techniques related to the ability to focus on and observe one's own feelings, thoughts and sensations during the present moment.

    Finding purpose is worth far more than money

    A funny thing happened to me last week. Several colleagues and I were invited to lunch to get pitched on donating money to a worthy cause. You know, the free lunch that may end up costing you a month's pay.

    CMHR's future is up to us all

    It has been 4,549 days since the Winnipeg Free Press first announced media mogul Israel Asper had been secretly championing an idea to construct a national museum at The Forks, in the centre of the city. Children born on that day are now in Grade 8. This weekend, finally, the world will be given the opportunity to step through the museum's doors and into Mr. Asper's imagination.
