She is a BC 4-H Ambassador and Youth Advisory Committee rep. for 4-H Canada.  She is currently studying at CNC taking "Natural Resource and Environmental Technology" planning on finishing my degree at UNBC in Natural Resource Management.

Perspective Divided by Time = δ

BY JOHN MAKOWSKY
@ VOL 6 ON DEC 01, 2015

Perspectives constantly change over time, or at least John thinks they should. He recounts some highlights of great perspective shifts in his life.

John Makowsky is a young tech entrepreneur and the founder of Vector Finesse, a 3D printing startup in Prince George. He’s a storyteller by nature, and spends a lot of time “spongin”. A firm believer that being smart is cool, he is constantly learning and teaching himself (and others) new things.

Windshield Perspectives - Moments That Change Us

BY SUSAN MAILLOT
@ VOL 6 ON DEC 01, 2015

Our perspective is like a windshield that can provide clarity and security or become obscured by damage. You choose whether to change it or live with it cracked and splintered.
 
Susan Maillot has the good fortune to travel doing what she loves – telling stories.  She believes that we are made of many stories, and it is in understanding how these stories came to be written in our souls that we understand ourselves and others.  And she loves to laugh........just sayin.

Wine a Little, Laugh A Lot!

BY KATHLEEN ANGELSKI
@ VOL 5 ON SEP 15, 2015

"You can make just about anything into booze, right? Dandelion flowers, rotten potatoes, roadkill, ...just about anything!" 

Kathleen thought she won the lottery when she and her new family moved into their new home and discovered a mature pear tree growing in the front yard…until they tried to eat one. The pears were either rock hard or complete mush, with no happy medium. She tried every which way to make something edible out of the fruit, but nothing turned out quite right. Kathleen finalized realized that the solution to her problem was not edible, but drinkable! Join maker and crafter extraordinaire Kathleen Angelski are she guides us through the step-by-step journey of making pear wine.
