Teamwork is not something to be taken for granted with children, but they can have an abundance of good vibes, especially when working together towards a positive, interesting goal such as an animation project.  The founders of Sheepdog Animation, a studio home-grown in Waterloo, Ontario spill light on what kind of person you need to be to work as an aspiring animator,  and how we can all feel better when we just pick up a pen and draw.

From being a marine electrician at the Canadian Navy to becoming an energy healer, Ashley LeBlanc certainly has a unique story to tell--how she was afflicted with a rare illness, her journey in finding out what it is, and how it caused her to choose a different path in her life--one that not only helped her recover, but also allowed her to help clients in ways she never thought possible. You can find Ashley at www.discoverhealing.com. You can also check out the interview on video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzrAN59nqT4&t=3s  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
Who was your role model? Is it important for men to have platonic friendships? Spend "brotherly" time with each other, and share their struggles? What kind of issues are men facing? How can women support men more? Those, and more, are questions asked of Nick Solaczec, the Executive Officer of the Samurai Brotherhood, a positive, empowered space for men, to have men’s backs. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
Executive Officer Nick Solaczec joins Changemakers to talk about the Samurai Brotherhood, a community for conscious men that started out by its founder Phil Teeertha Mistlberger 24 years ago with an aim to support and guide men in the modern era. The Samurai Brotherhood has over 400 members across North America, and some even in Australia. Groups of men meet up in a safe space to share in their grief, struggles and challenges, without the use of alcohol, drugs, or video games, to help each other become the best version of people they can be. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
Formerly titled "Ep 13 - A Bitter Taste of the Cold War - Alexander Solzhenitsyn". A social critic in a regime that actively persecuted dissenters, Alexander Solzhenitsyn (also in picture) grappled with Death on occasions almost too numerous to count, a man who, like many others, was reduced to mere scum by the Communist Regime of the USSR, but who kept a spirit of a fighter, and a writer while imprisoned. Later, he received a Nobel Prize for several volumes chronicling the 200 or more interviews he had with his fellow prisoners as well as his own experiences, what he called "The Gulag Archipelago", the most profound text on why communism should never be put to action.  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
In the final episode of the Fight for Women’s Rights in Canada I ask Tarah Brookfield, a professor from Wilfred Laurier University from the Faculty of History and Youth and Children Studies, about gender quotas and diversity in workplaces, professorship applications, Indigenous women’s rights in Canada, as well as the Grand River First Nations’ system. I also ask her about how transgenderism may be affecting women’s rights, and what may be the best type of relationship for children's prosperity and stability. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
Onwards! The fight for women's rights continues, with its interesting turns in the Canadian political arena of the 1900s. In this 4-part series, Professor Tarah Brookfield from Wilfred Laurier University unravels her research and vast knowledge of the subject in Part 3 with Changemakers. The history of the suffragist movement in Canada for women is a subject not to be forgotten or overlooked. We got this far for getting the vote, equality, and freedom. Men and women should not let their guard down, and keep fighting for our life-freedoms.  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
Professor Tarah Brookfield joins us from the University of Wilfred Laurier in Waterloo, Ontario, representing both the faculty of Youth and Children as well as the faculty of History, and shares her knowledge on the history of the women's rights movement in Canada. Women did not only fight the government to get the vote. There were also disagreements between the women themselves on if they should even get the vote in the first place. That, and much more interesting politics is in this Women's Rights series with Professor Brookfield.  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
In this new 4-part series, Professor Tarah Brookfield from Wilfred Laurier University joins Changemakers to talk about the history of the suffragist movement in Canada, and the leading men and women who made a difference in this field. This episode focuses on the first women who made the break act of casting their ballots, among interesting stories behind the issue of women's rights and how it affected every aspect of a woman's life in 19th century Canada. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
Did you ever feel nervous on stage? How about off-stage, when you're in an interview, a debate with a friend, or an argument with your sibling? Bernie Roehl answers questions about improv, and teaching it for the past 30 years. So he knows a thing or two about getting people to let out their "inner actor", and release their self-criticisms. It turns out that improv doesn't only help us with our confidence, it can help familial relationships, romantic ones, and even when we're at work toiling through a tough day. Bernie co-founded Theatre on the Edge in Waterloo, Ontario, to teach people how to feel strong, and to believe in themselves and their capabilities. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
Bernie Roehl talks about the possibilities VR holds in store for us, and what he's developing in the field while teaching at the University of Waterloo, Ontario. Roehl has designed one of the first curriculums on virtual reality for community college programs in Canada, and authored several books, among them, “Playing God: Creating Virtual Worlds”. His VR packages are used by VR enthusiasts until today. In Part 2, we talk about Theatre on the Edge, one of the first improv theatre institutions in South-Western Ontario, which Roehl co-founded in 1981, and what improv can do to improv our lives and strengthen our spirit. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
What if you saw so much that the image of battle was burned underneath your eyelids? That with every minute in the night your mind is filled with the picture of ruin, of people strewn on the ground,  with their skin black, heads swollen like puss-balloons from atomic smoke? What would you do if someone said it wasn't real, that it was all a hoax, that the atomic bomb never existed? Those same people say that the holocaust never occurred, either. We will dig into the stories of survivors, and changemakers, who's skin was ripped and lives completely changed by two opposing forces: the Japanese, and the American. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
We get into conversation with James Cunningham, co-founder of P.A.C.E (Penticton and Area Cooperative Enterprise), which provides workplace training and employment opportunities to those struggling with addictions and mental challenges, who are also often homeless or disabled. P.A.C.E trains them to be responsible adults who can not only start to piece their life back together, but make a difference in the community around them. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
Why did Samuel Clemens published an endorsement for the society of supernatural research? Was Samuel a good father, and family man? Why did his wife wear only black for an entire year? Writers are usually recluses. But he was one of the best orators America had ever come to know, and one of the first to write anti-slavery literature. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
Florence's parents were appalled when they heard that she wanted to be a nurse, considering her status, and the number of suitors that were just waiting to ask for her hand. What about revolutionizing nursing? Or inventing pie charts? --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
Rosalind Franklin risked her livelihood and health to discover the double-helix, and her research didn't stop there. In Part 2, we will get a glimpse of the rare female scientist in World War II era who became a changemaker in three different fields of science, and perhaps, a bit, about the little we know of the lonely scientist's love life. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
What happens behind closed doors in prestigious university labs comes out slowly, in trails of information and bits of knowledge, or sometimes none at all, to the point where the wrong people will get awarded, and the right people may even die young, like what happened to one Rosalind Franklin. This is her story, of a young woman with ambition and talent, and her journey to discover the double helix, the structure of the DNA, and the deceit and intrigue that lurked in the background that wasn't discovered until much later. Some don't even know it until today. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/may-cooper/message
