Re: Resources and recommended listening

Thinking a whole lot about climate change these days and this 30min podcast episode from Germany's DW highlights current state of renewed and rapid deforestation in Brazilian rainforest to grow soy, as well as the opportunity to plant many more trees in my country, Canada, Russia, and others: https:...

Re: Preventing unnecessary medical care

I too, classical_Liberal, have considered practicing this kind of patient navigation service. I'm not a regulated health professional but have worked in hospitals much of my life and have helped my awesome RN mom and others navigate the system, being an advocate for them to speak up and effectively ...

Re: ERE shaming

Thank-you for your post Campitor and the collection of impactful quotes it contained. Has me thinking I need to wrap up this Saturday afternoon that I've come into work and go out and enjoy my weekend!

Re: 7Wannabe5-Take 4

I'm eating this up 7! You are a total riot. Jason, you had me going between strong, strong cringing to hesitant laughter. Something I wouldn't want to have come up with, but I guess we'll see how she takes the blow?

Re: ERE map

In Barrie (Canada) now doing higher-paid healthcare IT work. Trying to find a frugal community in this pretty consumeristic city, as well as a fellow ~late-twenties gay miser like myself to date (an even smaller percent of the population). Yes, this is my Personals ad on the ERE forum. DM me for det...

Re: Divorced my broker and optimizing my accounts. Canada specific review.

Hi distracted_at_work, welcome to Questrade! I've been using it for a couple years now and have liked it. I'd recommend you hold your Canadian equities in your taxable account (Questrade's name is Margin). This document (including its appendix), has information which has guided me in where to hold s...

Re: International Value Indexing

From what I understand, a low trading volume for a given ETF is not a major concern as long as the stocks it holds are reasonably liquid. See this article for example: http://www.etf.com/etf-education-center ... idity.html

Re: Ontarian's Journal

Thank-you Sky for the helpful recommendation. I'm in a health informatics program and though I'm not yet done, I've been applying for jobs and looking into studying for the entry-level project management exam, the CAPM. But then I think about how Agile or Scrum are perhaps more relevant in the infor...

Re: Tiny House/Small House Resources

These are all delightful JennyPenny. Just passively taking them in. I think the connected greenhouse is a great idea. I interned on an organic vegetable farm a few years ago and being in the warm greenhouse during the cool and damp May that year was lovely.

Re: Best practices during low points? Share your lowest lows? :(

Can we get a status update Olaz? The responses in this thread have been helpful to me in thinking about whether if I'm able to get a job I want should I finish this term's classes but not complete the other half year of a certificate program I'm in. I feel like I'm in this for the short-haul: get pi...

Ontarian's Journal

Sometimes I think the job I'd enjoy most is house cleaning and yard work. To be self-employed doing mild to moderate physical work. Hi, I chose the username Ontarian, but wish I had picked something different. I've returned to university to complete a one-year certificate program to improve my job p...

Re: Portfolio Charts

Let's set taxes aside for a moment -- I agree those are really complex. How exactly does a foreign investor buy US-based funds? Does anyone have any experience with that, or can you point me to an online guide describing the process for your country? I'm Canadian (obvious given my username) yet all...

Re: FREE Soylent -- Toronto / North York

Hi BlueNote! I'd happily receive the Soylent you no longer wish, if someone else hasn't already. I've been drinking it as my morning meal for a while now after being off it for a bit. I'm a student at York University presently so could probably bike to your house in no time. Thanks for your offer!
