A Review of Instagram Marketing by Matthew Lucas Uber vs Lyft: Battling for Supremacy Brad AndersonEditor In Chief at ReadWrite CEOs in Troubled Waters (with Myriam Joire from… Related Posts Sometimes, it feels as though achieving the exalted work-life balance is more about the stars aligning in your favor than something you can actually control. Some weeks come together easily, while others leave you scrambling to do things like eat and sleep. It’s becoming clear that many factors influence our work-life balance, and one that can play a major role is the city you call home.Things like cost of housing, commute time, and income level — relative to hours worked — all impact your work-life balance. Not surprisingly, these factors can vary tremendously from one city to another, and some cities with glamorous reputations — such as New York and Los Angeles —actually score quite low in these rankings.Of course, you may not be in a position to drop everything and move immediately. But if your city is a negative influence on your work-life balance, it helps to keep alternative locations in mind for when life does present you with the opportunity to make a change.The next time you’re pondering where to put down roots, be sure to weigh the following factors carefully; they can have a profound impact on your work-life balance.1. A sanity-saving commuteIt’s not surprising that spending an excessive amount of time stuck in traffic or hours riding the subway can quickly derail your efforts to establish a healthy work-life balance. In big cities such as New York and Chicago, average one-way commute times are 40 minutes and 34 minutes, respectively. Over the course of the week, this time rapidly adds up and makes it harder to find time for the things you want to do outside of work. In addition, new studies are illustrating that a lengthy commute has harmful consequences in terms of health and productivity.Just because a city is large doesn’t mean it has to be difficult to get around. St. Louis, for instance, is consistently below the national average, with a 24-minute commute. A shorter commute provides tangible benefits every single day, including more time to spend with family and friends.2. A cost of living non-billionaires can affordA high cost of living is an obvious obstacle standing in the way of your ideal work-life balance because it requires you to work more to pay for the basic necessities than you would have to in a city with a lower cost of living. For instance, cities such as Washington and San Francisco are much harder on the wallet, so you may find yourself working longer hours to make up for high costs — or enduring a cringe-worthy standard of living.Meanwhile, a city like Raleigh, North Carolina, offers a wealth of tech jobs without the cost inflation you’ll find in Silicon Valley. A Magnify Money study of the 50 largest metropolitan areas found that Raleigh ranks 18th for cost of goods relative to the national average and 18th for income relative to hours worked. Thanks to its other attractive traits, Raleigh took the fourth spot on a list of cities with the most balanced lifestyles.3. Recreation options that get you movingHaving fun outside of work is paramount to maintaining work-life balance, and some cities meet this need better than others. While watching a movie or reading a book are great activities for winding down and can be done anywhere, try to find a home that offers at least a few forms of recreation that encourage physical activity.Even large cities can still provide excellent access to the outdoors, and cities such as Seattle and Portland, Oregon, rank among the highest in this category. Getting outside regularly comes with a host of health benefits, and many cities recognize the importance of outdoor activity by prioritizing the creation of parks and greenways.The next time you’re considering a change of scenery, don’t forget the effect your home can have on your work-life balance. Living in a major city comes with many attractive amenities, but be aware that some cities contribute to a more balanced lifestyle than others.

He took little break and sometimes it does not hurt in mid-career. From what I have seen since the beginning of the season, his team has the desire. “It is a little limited in potential. Marseille today does not have the level to play the title of champion of France. But he managed to get the team behind him and instill a dynamic in the team. If he finishes in the first six, I think he has really had a good season.”
Former Auburn running back Corey Grant is doing a pretty good job impressing the scouts at the Tigers’ pro day this afternoon. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound running back did not receive an invite to the Senior Bowl or the NFL Combine, but he’s making up for that today. Grant might be the fastest player available in the upcoming NFL Draft. According to multiple people in attendance at Auburn’s pro day, Grant ran a sub-4.3 40-yard dash. Hearing unofficial 40 chatter of 4.27 and 4.28 for AU RB Corey Grant. Workout wonder. #AUProDay— Chase Goodbread (@ChaseGoodbread) March 3, 2015BREAKING: Corey Grant is fast. Unofficially a 4.27 40 at Pro Day— Tom Green (@Tomas_Verde) March 3, 2015Times are often a little faster at pro days than they are at the combine or at NFL team’s individual workouts, but that’s still an incredibly impressive performance by Grant. He’s certainly helping his draft stock today.
OTTAWA – Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau suggests he has no plans to provide a timetable for returning Ottawa’s books to balance — even with a scorching economy.Morneau credited the strong economic performance to the Trudeau government’s strategy to run deficits, which helped it finance measures such as lower income-tax rates for middle earners and enhanced child benefits.Moving forward, he said Tuesday that Ottawa intended to pursue its plan to invest more than $180 billion into infrastructure over the next 11 years. That spending is projected to contribute to annual, multibillion-dollar shortfalls across Ottawa’s five-year budgetary outlook — and perhaps beyond.Morneau’s remarks outside a cabinet retreat in St. John’s came after months of impressive economic data, including a recent report showing growth expanded at an annualized rate of 4.5 per cent in the second quarter.“We find ourselves in this positive position because of the economic approach we’ve taken,” he told reporters after being asked if the improved fiscal outlook meant he’d produce a timeline to eliminate the deficit in his fall economic update.“We’re going to continue down that path and we’re going to do it in a fiscally responsible way.”The Liberals’ deficit track has faced criticism.Conservative opponents have long been critical about the government’s plan to add to the federal debt to fund new measures, while some economists have urged Ottawa to limit fiscal uncertainty by mapping out a plan to return to balance.More recently, experts have also warned that Ottawa should consider delaying its nearer-term infrastructure investments to avoid the risk of overheating the already-sizzling economy.The economy’s surprisingly powerful start to the year is expected to improve the federal bottom line outlined in the government’s March budget.At the time, Morneau forecasted a $28.5-billion deficit for 2017-18, including a $3-billion accounting adjustment for risk.A new analysis released this week by a University of Ottawa think tank predicts the deficit is on track to be about $6.5 billion smaller this year. The shortfall is set to shrink thanks to an economic expansion that easily topped federal projections, said the Institute of Fiscal Studies and Democracy.The think tank, led by former parliamentary budget officer Kevin Page, also said there’s “little doubt” the federal measures, such as increased child benefits and early infrastructure spending, have contributed to Canada’s improved economic performance.Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre said the Liberals were fortunate to have inherited a solid financial situation from the Harper government and to enjoy the benefits of a strengthening U.S. economy.Poilievre said the government should balance the books now while the “going’s good.”If not, he warned that rising interest rates will leave households and the government increasingly indebted. Over time, the higher rates will also gradually boost Ottawa’s debt-servicing costs, he added.“Now is the time to balance the budget and strengthen our finances, rather than continuing to pile on new debt,” Poilievre said Tuesday in an interview.Morneau insisted Tuesday that, since taking office, the government’s approach has put more disposable income in consumers’ pockets, which they’ve put back into the economy.On infrastructure, Morneau said Ottawa would stick with the spending strategy because it’s designed to lift the economy over the long term.To guide the government’s deficit decisions, he added it would keep its focus on the country’s debt-to-GDP ratio — a measure of the public debt burden.The government has promised to lower the ratio over the Liberal mandate and views it as a so-called fiscal anchor, rather than eliminating the deficit.“We expect that we’ll be able to do even better than we might have thought in the past, in terms of our ability to manage that,” Morneau said of the ratio.“That will be our continuing measurement tool.”The Liberals won the 2015 election on a platform that pledged to invest billions in infrastructure and child benefits as a way to re-energize the economy. They had promised annual shortfalls would not surpass $10 billion during the first couple years of their mandate and to return to balance by 2019-20.However, a few months after taking office the government abandoned those vows, citing a weaker-than-expected economy.Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitter
TORONTO – Canada’s residential real estate market saw strong but slowing year-over-year price growth in the fourth quarter of 2017, according to a report by Royal LePage.The real estate company said that based on data in 53 markets, the price of a home in Canada increased 10.8 per cent year-over-year to $626,042 in the quarter.Broken down by housing type, Royal LePage said the median price of a two-storey home rose 11.1 per cent year-over-year to $741,924, and the median price of a bungalow climbed 7.1 per cent to $522,963.But the company said in its report released Wednesday that the median price of a condo grew faster than any other housing type studied, rising 14.3 per cent to $420,823 on a year-over-year basis due to gains in many of the largest markets.In the Greater Toronto Area, the median price of a condo grew 19.5 per cent year-over-year to $476,421, while in the City of Toronto, the cost of a condo rose 19.6 per cent to $515,578.In Greater Vancouver, condominiums followed a similar pattern during the quarter, rising 20.2 per cent to $651,885, while the median price of a condo unit in the City of Vancouver rose 18.7 per cent to $775,806.In a separate report that examined luxury home sales, Sotheby’s International Realty said sales in the Greater Toronto Area of homes over $1 million in 2017 slowed in the second half of the year following a move by the Ontario government to cool the market.Sales of homes over $1 million in the GTA in the second half of the year were down 56 per cent compared with the first six months of 2017 and down 33 per cent compared with the second half of 2016.However, sales of homes over $1 million in the region for all of 2017 were up five per cent compared with 2016 due to the hot start to the year and strong condo sales. Sales of condos over $1 million in Canada’s largest city climbed 59 per cent compared with 2016, while sales of those over $4 million rose 82 per cent.Sotheby’s CEO Brad Henderson said the condo market’s strength is persisting because there’s a “scarce” number of affordable, family homes in the city and surrounding regions, and increasing numbers of empty-nesters looking to move closer to their kids downtown.“The condo market will continue to be a strong and resilient class of real estate,” Henderson said.“It is a much more affordable opportunity, even in the luxury level, and there is considerable demand.”Calgary saw overall home sales over $1 million increase 11 per cent year-over-year, while sales in the $1 million-plus real estate market increased 20 per cent in Montreal.Meanwhile, Sotheby’s said sales of homes over $1 million in Vancouver fell five per cent compared with 2016, while those over $4 million fell by 33 per cent.Royal LePage said the GTA showed signs of slowing as 2017 drew to a close, notably in the single-family detached segment.In the fourth quarter, the median price of a two-storey home and bungalow in Toronto and surrounding area fell by 2.0 and 2.4 per cent respectively on a quarter-over-quarter basis.The company says condos were the only segment to appreciate on a quarter-over-quarter basis among all housing types, rising 1.1 per cent in the final three months of the year.At the same time, the price of two-storey homes and bungalows fell 0.3 and 0.2 per cent quarter-over-quarter, respectively.“To prospective homeowners in our largest cities, condominiums represent the last bastion of affordability,” said Royal LePage president and CEO Phil Soper.“This is especially true for first-time buyers whose purchasing power has been reduced by tightening mortgage regulations.”
