Metformin has been used for a long time for diabetes. It has been studied for some years now as a cancer (prevention) treatment, but articles I'm reading are saying it's too soon to be certain.5 AnswersOther - General Health Care3 years ago
We received an amazing gift from a local deli (Montreal) but no instructions. There are cold cuts, salads, bread, AND TWO containers of chicken broth and TWO containers of DUMPLINGS.

If someone is near death in hospital, perhaps after a car crash, is there any point in praying for that life to be saved?
Wasn't the crash part of some god's plan? Hasn't that god already decided the person's fate?6 AnswersReligion & Spirituality5 years ago
How have we become so brainwashed about body hair?
All those skin treatments and the hair removal and eyebrow shaping and eye shadow and other cosmetics, and hair colour and conditioners and manicures and pedicures. Why, why, why? Women could give money and time instead to their church or to a Humanist organization!
If you're religious, then accept that gods gave you body hair, OK? If you're atheist can't you see that the body hair evolved so it's not a bad thing?11 AnswersGender Studies6 years ago

So it seems to be more common in English now to use the word hijabi to refer to a woman wearing a hijab, and niqabi to describe a woman wearing a face veil. So can we just use English convention to pluralise these words? So, 'niqabis'? and 'hijabis'?3 AnswersLanguages7 years ago
Can we say niqabis? I would like to know, instead of saying, "When I walk through the local mall, I see several ladies wearing hijab" can I say instead "I see several hijabis"?
Thank you.7 AnswersRamadan7 years ago
Yesterday, our local news channel took their cameras to an elementary school, and they filmed the school choir, and two of the singers were wearing hijab.

Now that things have settled down after the anti-Islamic video, I'd like to know what people think about 'greater' and 'lesser' religions. Personally, I think categorizing religions is a ridiculous idea, but Clinton had to say something like that to try and put out the flames.4 AnswersReligion & Spirituality8 years ago
We have an AC unit on our balcony on the 2nd floor. This was just put there last July (11 months ago). The people before us had this old water cooled AC system which was apparently never meant to be used in individual homes.
The upstairs neighbour has his bedroom right above the AC unit, and there's no 3rd floor balcony there. He can't sleep due to the noise. The downstairs neighbour doesn't want us to move our AC down to grass level. So can we build a shelter over our AC unit and who would we get to do that sort of thing? (It's probably against condo rules, but I'd like to look into various possibilities).3 AnswersDo It Yourself (DIY)8 years ago

Actually I'd like to hear from people of all philosophies. If you change your cable provider, or internet provider, to save money, that's very wrong, isn't it? So I have Videotron cable, and Bell offers a special deal, but switching would be wrong? You see people who work for Videotron could get laid off, if many people switch. Bell might offer a few of them jobs, at much lower salaries.
We shouldn't think only of ourselves. And in the long term, do we want one big company running everything? I don't think so. What do you think?2 AnswersReligion & Spirituality10 years ago
