B2ten foundation is Olympic champion Jenn Heil's legacy

Ten years ago Thursday, a pint-sized Jenn Heil stood atop the mogul field in Sauze d’Oulx, Italy, with no regrets — regardless of what might have happened over the course of the next 26 seconds. The 22-year-old McGill University commerce student had a note from her psychologist tucked in her pocket that read: “I’m ready. I know it’s going to be great.” And great she was, exploding out of the gate and landing two monster jumps to win Canada’s first medal at the 2006 Olympics.

Australia’s top court decides in favor of trade detention centers

On a flight back from Moscow in 1992, following meetings with parliament members and the late Mr. Yegor Gaidar, then finance minister, I wrote up the tongue-in-cheek conversation I had with them at the time, when they all complained about Russia having only its natural resources to sell.  Please bear with me how this episode is linked to Australian highest court recent decision to export “asylum seekers” to detention centers in Nauru, a minuscule, isolated island with few thousand inhabitants in the midst of the Pacific.
