Terrorism laws target racism, but what about racism in the legal system?

Critics of new terrorism laws argue they do not necessarily eradicate hate-fuelled violence — and they could make structural and institutional violence seem more palatable.
Vaccine hesitancy has been a growing challenge for more than a decade. Concerns about vaccine safety and adverse events are the most commonly cited reasons. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis) 

How cognitive biases and adverse events influence vaccine decisions (maybe even your own)

To help increase trust in vaccines, researchers analyzed data on adverse events to address safety concerns, and then used cognitive science to show how cognitive biases feed vaccine hesitancy.
La mairesse de Montréal, Valerie Plante, réagit au lendemain de sa réélection, le 8 novembre. Les femmes sont désormais à la tête de 5 des 10 plus grandes villes du Québec.

Un leadership féminin émerge. Va-t-il réussir à s’imposer ?

Un nouveau leadership féminin émerge, tant en politique que dans le milieu des affaires. Mais il n’est pas toujours valorisé par les organisations et sa pérennité est menacée.
As governments depend on multinational consulting firms not just for advice on COVID-19 but for core policy-making functions, we should question the extent to which such partnerships have really augmented government capacities — or hollowed them out. (Shutterstock)

Consulting firms are the ‘shadow public service’ managing the response to COVID-19

Since the beginning of the pandemic, governments in Canada have spent hundreds of millions of dollars on outside consulting firms like McKinsey, Deloitte and EY with almost no public oversight.
Según estimaciones recientes, a partir de 2020 solo podrán emitirse 500.000 millones de toneladas de dióxido de carbono si queremos mantenernos por debajo del umbral de 1,5 grados. Las emisiones mundiales ya han alcanzado los 80.000 millones de toneladas desde entonces. AP Photo/Alberto Pezzali

El reloj climático muestra que estamos un año más cerca del umbral de calentamiento de 1,5℃

El reloj utiliza la tendencia de emisiones de los últimos cinco años para estimar cuánto tiempo queda hasta que el calentamiento global alcance el umbral de 1,5 ℃.

La remise à zéro de l’horloge climatique démontre que le monde se rapproche d’un an du seuil critique de 1,5 °C

L’horloge suit les émissions mondiales et les données relatives aux températures, et utilise la tendance des émissions récentes pour estimer le temps qu’il reste avant que un réchauffement de 1,5 °C.
According to recent estimates, only 500 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide can be emitted from 2020 onwards if we are to stay below the 1.5 C threshold. Global emissions have already hit 80 billion tonnes since then. (AP Photo/Alberto Pezzali)

Climate clock reset shows the world is one year closer to 1.5 C warming threshold

The clock tracks global emissions and temperature data, and uses the most recent five-year emissions trend to estimate how much time is left until global warming reaches the 1.5 C threshold.

Spirit photography captured love, loss and longing

Today viewers may be preoccupied by the methods used by spirit photographers, but spirit photographs had a notable impact on the bereaved who commissioned the portraits.

Why ensuring trust is important in reducing COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy

Trust is needed to curb vaccine hesitancy. Governments need to explain vaccines and other public health measures, while also speaking to the broader purpose of caring for the community we belong to.
