Quite a moment last night as Jimmy Kimmel asked Kanye West why he thinks Trump cares about black people. Kanye responded with a few seconds of silence. "Why don't we take a break," Kimmel said. They never returned to the topic. wapo.st/2Mbey0E via @EmilyYahr

"In response, Canada did not retaliate but rather shrugged. Saudi Arabia’s visibility on the international landscape actually belies its relatively minor importance. It has an economy the size of Holland, and its diplomatic influence is mostly regional."
The Saudi/Canada dust up in itself won't even be a footnote in history. But it does reveal two recent and historic changes to the international landscape. (My column in the @BostonGlobe this week) bostonglobe.com/opinion/2018/0…

Thoughts and prayers to the NRA who is saying they’re in a deep financial crisis and may be unable to exist. Maybe they could ask some of the Republicans they donated millions to for a loan:
Richard Burr - $7M
Roy Blunt - $4M
Cory Gardner - $3M
Marco Rubio - $3M
Google Glass is making a comeback as an experimental tool in autism therapy. The project, dubbed Superpower Glass, uses software developed by the Stanford University School of Medicine... uses Google Glass’s outward-facing camera to read facial expressions and deliver social cues

What a sobering discussion just now. So full of respect for @OttawaCas, @mgkward and @CHEOhospital's child+youth protection team for their work helping 550 kids yearly who have been abused and neglected. Such heart-breaking stories, such inspiring efforts.
I will be forever grateful that @BBBSO brought my Little Sister Shannon into my life. What started out as a volunteering to make a difference in one person's life turned into "now, she's a part of my life forever". Thanks you @BBBSO 😎 twitter.com/bbbsc/status/1…
The results are in! Canada’s longest-running study of mental health and substance use among youth is complete. More than 11,400 students were surveyed for #OSDUHS2017. Here’s how they feel about their mental and physical health. #MentalHealthisHealthow.ly/1xTn30l6XYM
I’m very concerned that Russia will be fighting very hard to have an impact on the upcoming Election. Based on the fact that no President has been tougher on Russia than me, they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats. They definitely don’t want Trump!
Thank you to the 45,546 kids+families who participated in @CHEOhospital research in 2017 - 4% increase from previous year. Patients participating today = medical advances tomorrow. #cdnhealth#onHWS#onpoli
Rereading what we had to say about regulation of out-of-hospital clinics a few years back and hoping soon we can have a comprehensive regulatory regime in place to protect Ontario patients health.gov.on.ca/en/news/bullet…
Interesting to learn about the "catch and kill" strategy used by The National Enquirer to effectively silence Ms. McDougal for the remainder of the campaign... The power of media and the dangers of when they hold a political bias.
Fantastic meeting this morning with Human Rights Internet (@HRICanada) discussing models of giving to best support #HumanRights in Canada. Incredibly innovative group; honoured to share some of the work @Justchangeott is doing in the domain of #givingcircles.
If the Democrats can only achieve victory by breaking all the rules to defeat 'the rule breaker Trump' - what have they really accomplished? Demanding Marina Gross' notes or testimony would be fruit of a poisonous tree... nytimes.com/2018/07/19/us/…
BREAKING: @RepSwalwell and I just made a motion in House Intel Committee to subpoena the American interpreter during the summit — the only witness to Trump’s meeting with Putin. This is an extraordinary remedy, but Trump’s actions necessitate it.
A huge congrats to @mary_ng! We can't wait to host you @Shopify ...we've got over 600,000 problems but small businesses ain't one! (and by "problems" I mean that's how many SMB's we represent around the world and a huge spike of those being in #Canada this year ) 🚀💪🚀
"We imagined a world where Canada would be a catalyst for transformational change, where innovation would lead the way to healthier and longer lives." – @PeterASinger on Joe Rotman and the history of Grand Challenges Canada, and final annual letter as CEO. ow.ly/ww8730kufa7
A practical new model for connecting government, big firms and civil society to work together on big problems. Here Kate Sutton sets out more about the Inclusive Economy Partnership nesta.org.uk/blog/inclusive… via @nesta_uk
The fact the judge wiped out the section of the Income Tax Act limiting political activity of charities - immediately - as opposed to a "suspended declaration," should serve as a pretty strong indicator for the government to create/update much-needed charitable/NFP legislation.
