A few weeks ago Chicago Public Radio’s Worldview program broadcasted a great piece on the Holodomor. The show (which you can download or listen to) features segments with a survivor, clergy, academia, media and more! Definitely worth a listen to.
Vitalina Yushchenko, daughter of President Yushchenko and a 27-year-old mother-of-two fashion model worked the runway in Milan on Tuesday.
Edit: I just listened to this myself and it’s a great piece to listen to. It’s ideal for anyone who wants an introduction to the Holodomor in audio format.
From the Toronto Star:
In an act of early morning vandalism, about 150 signs for Liberal MP Borys Wrzesnewskyj were removed Sunday from lawns throughout Etobicoke Centre, with 30 of them placed in the shape of a giant penis on a hill in the grounds of Humber Valley Village Middle School.
Supporters reported hearing disturbances between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. Sunday along such major streets as Rathburn Rd., Islington Ave., Kipling Ave., only to notice their lawn signs had either been removed, or cut in half.
While I chucked reading the article, the Liberals have been popular in Etobicoke Centre for the past 15 years. Borys has been doing a fantastic job representing his riding, I don’t think he has much to worry about.
I found a neat little site who’s purpose is to practice your conversation skills with others in specific languagues, and they support Ukrainian! SharedTalk Beta is for language exchange and language learning, they say they will not tolerate its use for things like flirting, homework, etc. Give it a try!
From his announcements:
The offical campaign launch for Borys’ Re-Election campaign is TODAY at 3pm to 5pm. Food and refreshments will be served. Liberal MP Maurizio Bevilacqua will help launch the campaign.
The location of the Campaign office is 735 Renforth Dr. Unit #11
Hope to see you there!
