The connection between the Sun and the Earth is a complex one, involving interactions and
variabilities across a dizzying spectrum of scales and systems. The result is a relationship between us
and our star that is observable only through a fleet of instruments, methods, and technologies yet
creates weather in the near-Earth space environment that is both life-sustaining as well as life-threatening. This relationship is colloquially known as space weather. This talk is intended to provide
insight to and spark discussion around the characteristics of convergence and the role of data science,
namely creating new progress and a new frontier through radical interdisciplinary and methodology

Living on the Edge is designed to help participants begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month. In the simulation, participants assume the role of a different family member facing poverty. It is a simulation, not a game. The object is to sensitize participants to the realities faced by members of their community. Some families are newly unemployed, some are recently disserted by the “breadwinner”, some are homeless, and some are recipients of social assistance either with or without additional earned income. Others are senior citizens receiving disability or pension, or grandparents raising their grandchildren.
The conference will offer a spectrum of research, interventions and measures that can inform future interdisciplinary health policy, pathways, services and resources towards a healthy life for all Canadians. With its presentation of leading edge research, renowned key speakers, and closing “Great Debate”, The Healthy Living, Healthy Life Conference promises to be a dynamic and interactive experience.
Autism Connections’ 2018 Bowl-A-Thon event is coming up fast! Over $25,000 was raised during the fundraiser last year, which surpassed the goal of $20,000 thanks to all of the support. This year the goal is to beat that amount and use this fundraiser to provide better service for all.
