I wanted to share a story with you from National Post:

The iPhone is the most popular phone

It is time to say formal goodbye to  iPhone 6

The IOS system of the iPhone is very easy to use and the iPhone is expensive. 
The lowest end of the current market for your mobile phone is the iPhone 6.
iPhone 6 has been released for four or five years.The various configurations look very poor than the processors of the CellCon 660 and the Kirin 960, and the memory is even worse. When you upgrade to the latest IOS system, you'll get stuck, and the battery will need to be charged three or four times a day. Price hovering around 2000 yuan, and Xiaomi 6 and Huawei mate9 compared to the difference is too far away, so  iPhone 6, time to say formal goodbye!!!

Feminism vs Software

"When I first heard about software is eating the world, I am not very surprise, only a little. I thought software is going to benefit mankind anyway. ( It should be peoplekind in Canada now) When I first heard about feminism, I am not surprise at all. I thought everybody knows female is being oppressed.  Until I began to know that some men being false accused, put in jail. Some of them are depressed and even suicided. If the law is too dark, we need to shed some light on it.  When woman and man put together, and one of them has to sacrifice for the other, it is normally man. This is how the society works. And most people agree with it. Some females are being raped or sex harassed, some boys are being raped too. Most of the predators are men. But they are only part of men. There are many good men and good boys too. In some channels men and boys are being educated in such a way to make them feel guilty or shameful because of their sex. Compare to feminism, softwar…

File your business taxes every year with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)

Whether your business makes money or loses money, you have to file your business taxes every year with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).  Small businesses can file their taxes either through paper forms mailed to the CRA or submit them online through the CRA web site. For incorporated businesses, your taxes must be filed no later than six months after your fiscal year end while for unincorporated businesses you have until June 15 to file. 

You might have a sole proprietorship, a partnership, or a corporation.

The CRA has helpful definitions for each type of business: If you have not incorporated your business and are the only business owner then you are likely a sole proprietor.If you have not incorporated your business and you are a partner in the business with somebody then you are likely in a partnership situation.If you have incorporated your business, you are a corporation.

Depending on which you have, the tax deadlines and requirements are different.

If no deal is reached in the coming days, it is possible that the talk will be put on hold until end of the year or early 2019. It is due to the Mexican's presidential election in July and the U.S. congressional midterm vote in November. The Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Freeland also mentioned that there are still have some issues that they need to be resolved and a win-win-win agreement is possible. The Canadian small business essentiment index dropped more than 4.1 points to reach 56.6 in April which wasthe lowest since 2016. The major declines in confidence are in rising fuel and wage costs.

Don’t let someone who hurt you in the past have power over your future

Maybe you were a victim and someone did horrible things to you, or you fell into an unfortunate set of circumstances through no fault of your own. It still doesn't serve you to sit around feeling bad for yourself, blaming other people.

In fact, it only holds you back. You can't feel good if you use this moment to feel bad about another person's actions.

The only way to experience happiness is to take responsibility for creating it, whether other people made it easy for you or not. You're not responsible for what happened to you in the past but you're responsible for your attitude now.

The Verdict

If you cannot make a woman happy, stay away from her, otherwise you maybe get in trouble.
Stay away from drunk women, because there's too much uncertainty here, there's no guarantee you are sure she will be happy with you.
An invitation of hot sex from a woman doesn't mean she can not sue you, even she follows you to your apartment. You still need to stay away from drunk woman. Otherwise you maybe OK, you maybe not.
Survivors of crime and accused of presumption of guilty are both victims. 
Using poets in court judgment with presumption of guilty turns blue sky under the Sun info black sky. It's another cruelty. As Cruel as true rape.

Mortgage Qualifying Rate( MQR )

Mortgage Qualifying Rate is taken off a calculation that takes all the big banks' posted five-year rates and finds a middle ground. 
The banks are supposed to take that number, roughly an average of all the banks, then add 200 basis points (two percentage points) on top of it, then see if the mortgage shopper can handle payments at that higher rate. 
If the applicants can't, then they don't qualify for the mortgage.

Canada should reduce immigrants

With the advance of technology, a lot of people are going to be out of job.

We don't need as many taxi drivers as before. We don't need as many truck drivers as before. Because we are going to have a lot of self driving cars and trucks. We don't need as many workers in the factories as before because we are going to have a lot of robots with AI. We need to be prepared for this big technology advances.
