The Global Economy in 2022? 

Goldman Sachs predicts - "The Long Road to Higher Rates!" 


January 2, 2022

The Goldman Sachs 2022 MACROECONOMIC OUTLOOK!

According to Goldman Sachs, "the fastest pace of economic recovery is now behind us". It seems that interest rates will also have an increasing impact on world economies. Even as the latest Omicron variant of COVID-19 forces partial or full lockdowns around the globe. Oh, do not forget climate change with all its economic and planetary survival implications.


"Global economies and markets are facing a more complicated landscape amid rising rates, slowing growth and shifting monetary and fiscal policies." Goldman Sachs


What will follow in 2022, will vaccines and vaccine boosters be deployed in sufficient quantities to inoculate the entire global population as WHO have advocated from the beginning? As of January 2, 2022,  the vast majority of the world's population still remains unvaccinated and the Omicron variant was able to emerge as a result from a poorly vaccinated location. We are left to wonder, what other COVID-19 variants, health, climate change and economic developments will we witness in 2022?

"The Humanitarian crisis in Ukraine."


March 1, 2022

"International humanitarian law is clear: all parties to the conflict have a legal obligation to ensure that military operations are planned and conducted in a way as to ensure the protection of civilians and civilian objects."
(Florence Gillette, head of ICRC delegation in Kyiv on 26-Feb-2022)


I have been shocked, saddened and horrified by the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022. I was disgusted by the resulting destruction and the mounting human tragedy endured by the Ukrainian People. I have made a donation to the ICRC for the Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal. I humbly ask that you do the same.

Steps for Life Durham Region Walk - Threads of Life

Darlington (Ontario Power Generation), Darlington Waterfront Trail

May 1, 2022



May 1, 2022

When you’re walking for families of workplace tragedy, every step counts!


Steps for Life - Walking for Families of Workplace Tragedy is a fun 5 km fundraising walk to help support families affected by life-altering workplace injuries, illnesses and deaths. It’s a unique way to educate your community about the devastating ripple effects of a workplace tragedy and how we can work together to prevent others from being injured or killed on the job. You can make a difference too.


This year the plan was to host an in-person Steps for Life walk in Steps for Life 2022 - Durham Region. The option to walk at home was still available. Each in-person Steps for Life event followed all applicable public health requirements or guidelines including gathering size, mask use, physical distancing, and other health and safety practices. 


I was very glad to be part of the amazing organizing committee for this very successful Durham Region event. We enjoyed a physical group walk in nature after two years of essential COVID-19 related restrictions. Funds were also raised for a very worthwhile cause.
