Dear Friends and Partners,

Danielle and I were talking about the need, want and habit of complaining. Danielle read  in Gaye Hendricks' The Most Important 14 Pages You'll Ever Read In Your Lifethat if you complain more than three times about anything then it is something that you are inviting into your life that you need to 'clean up'. And how true that is.

I look at my simple annoyances and am often pushed to put them off rather than 'fix' them; it could be the need to organize the cupboard to caulk the tub. If the recurring complaint is BIG, tackle it faster and 'eat that frog'.

Some things take more time to complete but when they are approached quickly, can save a lot of pain; after all that is what we (people) are trying to avoid.

Alberta to Lead Canadian Economic Growth 2014

By Mario Toneguzzi, Calgary Herald, July 10th 2013

CALGARY — Alberta is expected to lead the country in economic growth next year, according to a new report released Wednesday by TD Economics.

The report said Alberta’s Real GDP growth will be 3.6 per cent in 2014 following a 2.8 per cent hike this year. Economic growth in the province in 2013 will be behind only Newfoundland & Labrador’s nation-leading 4.5 per cent increase.

“Despite the recent flooding, Alberta will be one strongest economies in Canada in 2013. Total energy sector revenue and reinvestment is expected to be higher than in 2012, when provincial GDP growth was four per cent,” said Ben Brunnen, a Calgary economic consultant and former chief economist of the Calgary Chamber of Commerce.

“Our unemployment rate is low, net interprovincial migration is high, and May residential building permits are the highest they’ve been since 2007. While the recent flooding will take some of the wind out the economic sails for southern Alberta, particularly in the retail sector, major project announcements such as the Brookfield Herald block and the Telus Sky demonstrate long-term confidence in Calgary and Alberta’s fundamentals.” FOLLOW THIS ARTICLE


Oil Rises Near US $106 a Barrel for 3rd Weekly Increase, Gasoline Futures Soar

By The Associated Press, July 12th 2013

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The price of oil rose to near US$106 a barrel Friday, supported by continuing tensions in Egypt and a sharp drop of U.S. crude stockpiles.

Benchmark crude oil for August delivery gained $1.04 to $105.95 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Even with a drop of $1.60 a barrel Thursday, the price of oil rose $2.73 this week and is up nearly 10 per cent in July.

Oil has risen from around $97 on July 1, mainly for two reasons. Traders are concerned that unrest in Egypt could affect oil shipments through the Suez Canal, a key shipping lane. And U.S. supplies of oil and gasoline have dropped dramatically in the past two weeks, signalling a rise in demand in the world's largest economy.

Brent crude gained $1.08 to $108.81 on the ICE Futures exchange in London.   GRAB THIS STORY


Pay-for-use lounge takes off at Edmonton airport

By Bill Mah, Edmonton Journal, July 13th, 2013

Domestic and international travellers who face long waits at the Edmonton International Airport can now enjoy a first-class lounge experience with the opening of a new pay-for-use facility.

On Thursday, Hong Kong-based Plaza Premium Lounge officially opened a 4,520-square-foot location at the airport's domestic-international departures lounge. A sister facility, in the airport's U.S. departures terminal, opened in 2012.

The lounges are open to all paying customers, regardless of airline or travel class, and cater especially to business and conference travelers.

Plaza Premium Lounge got its start when founder Song Hoi See left his job as an investment banker to start his own business, leaving behind the luxury of first class for the rigors of economy class.  READ MORE HERE
