If you answer "they are all left-handed," you are right! August 13th is Left Handers Day. Full disclosure. I am left handed. In LEFT IS RIGHT: The Survival Guide for Living Lefty in a Right-Handed World, author Rae Lindsay presents an upbeat look at the sinisterly side of life. She lists dozens of well-known people who belong to this "exclusive

club" (estimated members in the United States: 40 million), discusses the theories about hand preference and brain organization, and traces the superstitions and religious customs associated with lefties through history. Rae Lindsay writes that "all the world's major languages have special terms for being left-sided or lefthanded...and very few of them are flattering," dating back to the Latin word sinister, which really meant "the pocket side" of togas. In modern languages gauche means "clumsy" or "awkward," mancini indicates "crooked" or "maimed “in Italian; in Romany bongo

Psicobloc Montreal 2018


f you like extreme sports, or watching extreme sports competitions, then don’t miss the Psicobloc competition, which is taking place from August 23 to 25 at Parc Jean-Drapeau. Psicobloc is an extreme form of free rock climbing, and is expected to attract over 300 climbers from Canada, the U.S., Colombia, the U.K. and the Netherlands, and will compete for over $40,000 in prizes. The competitors will challenge each other to see who will be the fastest to climb to the top of a 55foot tall rock wall; however, there will be no ropes used or no safety net at the bottom of the wall, which means competitors will either make their way to the top … or end up falling into the tank of water at the bottom. “Psicobloc has its origins in Spain, in which it was called deep water soloing, where you

climbed a wall above a deep body of water,” said co-organizer Sophie Claivaz, who is also a climber in her own right. “It’s not well known in North America, but its popularity is growing in Europe, so when we de-

Pioneer Bar and Restaurant Demolition Notice Meeting

treme form of rock climbing has grown in popularity not only because of the growth of extreme sports around the world, but also the popularity of similar competition shows on TV such as “American Ninja Warrior”. “These climbers are athletes who like to push themselves harder and harder and want to do something different. They are not afraid of heights and get quite the adrenaline rush from climbing,” she said. “And you don’t have to be a climber to enjoy Psicobloc. Audiences are always amazed at what these athletes can do when they do this type of climbing.” For more information about the Psicobloc rock climbing competition – or to register as a participant – go to:


n Thursday August 9th 2018, the City of Pointe Claire will be holding a meeting at 7:30 pm at the Holiday Suites & Inn Pointe Claire (6700 Trans-Canada Highway). The Demolition Committee will be 'considering an application for a demolition permit and a program for the reutilization of the land'. City council has approved the sale of the Pioneer and a parking lot to Koebra Development Corp. for a reported $730,000. The corporation has plans for a condo/townhouse development, with commercial storefronts and an underground parking lot. Many residents have been fiercely opposed to the project, feeling the decision would ruin the face of the village and change its charm. A notice was issued by the city on July 18th and any person who wanted to oppose the issuance of

the permit had to do so in writing within 10 days of the original notice - but even though the deadline

By Bonnie Wurst

passed on June 27th at noon, there continues to be strong opposition to the project. Close to 4,000 citizens (and counting) have signed petitions to halt the demolition of the historic building - and on August 5th, 'Save Le Pionnier', a Facebook group created to help save the Pioneer, launched a 'Letter Writing Campaign', perpetuating their

efforts with the letters being sent to the Demolition Committee. Many residents are expected to attend the meeting on August 9th, although far less than what might have been expected - as the city has questionably put out the notice and is holding the meeting during the main vacation period of the summer when many are away. The Pioneer building has been through several incarnations over the years and needs work, but it has been an iconic presence in the village since the early 1900's. In 1979 it became the Pioneer, then they changed the name to Clyde’s and back to the Pioneer in 2011. On July 21st 2018 they held a big party before officially closing their doors. The Montreal Times will continue to follow the story and keep you updated. For further information go to:

An interview with London Brown from the HBO series “Ballers”

“Reggie is a friend of a guy who made it into the league. I’m what they consider the mooch of a friend who is spending the money, partying with the girls and is kind of a little reckless,” said Brown during an interview last month at the Hyatt Hotel during the Just For Laughs festival, where he was taping a couple of episodes of “LOL Live”, the standup comedy showcase series that airs on Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud! comedy streaming network. Brown also notes that the character of Fat Reggie will mature even more during season four; he will become more mature and more savvy on the business side of the sports world. By Stuart Nulman “On season four, the audience will be allowed to follow Reggie through his some of the top comedy growing up on the show,” clubs in North America he said. “He’s funny; he such as the Improv, the doesn’t take any lip from Comedy Store and the anybody. But he’s a good Gotham Comedy Club, guy overall who wants to and has performed along- protect his friend.” Another reason Brown side such comics as Kevin enjoys being part of the Hart, Katt Williams and Tony Rock.

However, Brown is widely known for his character “Fat Reggie” on the HBO series “Ballers”, in which its fourth season debuts on the network on August 12. “Ballers” stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a former NFL player who launches a second career as a financial planner for the current crop of professional football players. Brown, as Fat Reggie, is the childhood friend of Vernon Littlefield (played by Donovan W. Carter), a deeply family-oriented NFL player.

promotes such a calm, positive atmosphere on the set. “Dwayne is so cool. He’s the only guy I have ever known to speak his sneezes,” jokes Brown. “The one thing I appreciate about him is that he is a really chill, humble guy.

He changed my life without even asking me to,” said Brown. When he is not shooting episodes for “Ballers”, Brown is continuing to

perform stand-up gigs on the road. As well, he is about to show another side to his many talents, as he is currently putting together a book of photographs that he took during his many travels, and plans to donate the proceeds from sales of the book to a number of organizations that aid homeless people.

Glorious Garlands of Garlic


n all parts of the world there are legends of garlic being used to ward off evil spirits and these beliefs may stem from this plant’s medicinal history as potent defender against more serious threats such as harmful bacteria or viruses. For many today, garlic is still an old standby when flu season hits; crushed garlic cloves and ginger added to boiling water will get a sweat going and the garlic may help to boost your immune system. Fortunately, in those winter months, local garlic can still be found in markets and specialty food stores. By spring, Quebec garlic has mostly vanished from the city and unless we’ve rationed well we must wait until August for the new arrivals. Those loyal to local foods will follow garlic development throughout the late spring and summer. In June, the garlic scapes appear; these are the greens and flower bulb from the garlic plant and they taste great in pastas, salads, and dips. In July, we see the arrival of green garlic which tastes like regular garlic but without the spiciness. When mature garlic is harvested in mid-summer, it needs to be cured so that the outer layers


harden to protect the oils and moisture inside the bulb. August is when we finally begin to see those beautiful braids hanging from stalls at the markets. The summer months are a great time to eat

much of a threat these days, but do go and buy those beautiful garlands of garlic and hang them in your kitchen so that you are well-stocked with a medicinal and culinary powerhouse!

By Peter Churchill

Just showing up to play (regardless of most sports) is just not enough to be competitive as well as being an invitation to injury. If we look at Hockey for example; there is a variety of physical abilities as well as skills that contribute to performance on the ice. Although there are some allowances for position specific considerations in training, Hockey players (Ringette also), players need to consider at least the following list: 1. Mobility, Agility, Quickness 2. Injury prevention 3. Structural balance 4. Hockey (skating) specific speed 5. Hockey (skating) specific conditioning (Metabolism) 6. Strength & Power development 7. Muscular hypertrophy (size) 8. FLEXIBILITY Any training is better than no training, but the closer the training is to the nature of the sport you’re training for, the greater will be the transferability of the conditioning to on ice performance. For example 100 meter

sprinting is a skill that can improver with training, however it is linear in nature. So if you train as a 100 Meter sprinter does, you’ll get faster at running the 100 Meters, but that might not transfer to the rapid change of movement and direction needed in hockey. Sports are often a situation of movement chaos and although carefully rehearsed choreographed pattern of movement might make you excellent at that task, it may NOT be as valuable as supposed. The same could be said for things like Boxing (a great workout) and CrossFit® (a great workout). When looking at what an individual needs to perform better in their sport (consider the above list of 8 things), a Strength & Conditioning Coach does an analysis of the persons strengths’ and weaknesses and takes into consideration the demands of their sports activity (regardless of skill or age) and they endeavour to create a plan the progressively safely & efficiently develops their physical capacity in general and specifically for their sport.

Waiting until the hockey season resumes is an opportunity lost for the development of the key factors necessary for optimal performance. A copycat training program may lead to off target down the road, however some training is better that doing nothing until it’s just too late. Peter Churchill C.S.C.S.

Relief For Pain





will want to put the muscle on slack by bringing the two ends closer to each other.With your fingertips, press the muscle in toward itself from the ends.This signals the neuromuscular system to turn off the muscle. This is a tricky skill with neck muscles because it is more difficult to find the ends of the muscles. Repositioning- Another way to put the muscle on slack and send those deactivation signals is by gently moving other structures around the locked-up muscle. If you have a nasty 'crick in the neck', for example, one end of the affected muscle attaches to the shoulder blade. So, you can gently press the shoulder blade upward, toward the neck, to put it on slack. Strain, Counter-StrainThis is the third technique that most health practitioners could be using to relieve spasms. When your neck is in spasm, you will apply a slight, gentle resistance force in the opposite direction of the spasm, and then stretch the muscle in the direction that it was originally tight. It will stretch farther and loosen up.

f your neck feels tense or painful, your neck muscles may be locked up in a spasm. A neck muscle spasm occurs when the cervical muscles are over stimulated. Essentially, they won't turn off. A spasm can occur when a muscle is held in the same position for a long time. Or a muscle can be made to do repetitive movements. So, it is being trained to work extra hard at one activity. The neck may be affected by the shoulder and upper back muscles, so it is best to treat all of the upper-body muscles if you want to take strain off the neck. Natural treatment secrets based in osteopathy. There are natural remedies that most doctors and health practitioners don't practice. But they can help you get instant relief, stop the muscle from its spasm, and prevent your neck from future spasms. They originate in osteopathic medicine schools. However, the training in these techniques is minimal, and the application is becoming a lost art. Who is practicing these simple, natural techniques in the wellness and medical professions? (Answer: Hardly anyone!) * Positional Release- With the following positional release techniques, you will deactivate the muscle in spasm. It can be done with one of two ways: Muscle Shortening- Identify the muscle which is in spasm. Then find its end points, where the muscle attaches to the bone. You

“It’s What I’m NOT Wearing” By Martha Shannon

Setting: A Breakfast Restaurant. Two women chatting. One in ‘White Linen. One in ‘Paisley’. You are alone in a neighbouring booth, having forgotten your ear phones. You cannot help but overhear their chatter. White Linen: "Soooooo good to see you. It has been years. How are you ….?" You digest several minutes of catch–up. Paisley changes the subject and your ears perk up. Paisley: “You look marvelous, BTW. Tell me your secret to looking so young. What brand are you using on your skin? Estee? Shisheido? L’Oreal? Or maybe Nivea? What is your magic?" Intrigued, you sip your coffee and continue to pretend not to listen. White Linen: “You are kind. Thank you. I can tell you what I AM wearing on my skin, but I truly believe it is also what ‘I AM NOT wearing’?” Paisley: “Wearing? What do you mean ‘wearing’?” White Linen: “As in ‘whatever touches my skin’. I like natural products, organic, as pure and simple as I can find. I wear absolutely no chemicals, no


commercial products, no famous well-known name brands. I like it. My skin feels better." Paisley: “I have paid lots of money for good face creams. Lab tested. Full of ‘Natural’ ingredients. I try. I paid near $150.00 for one cream and it feels ok, but not terrific. It feels sticky. Has a 50 SPF built right in. Contains Vitamin E and aloe. But I am not so sure I see a difference. So, what name brand DO YOU USE?" White Linen: “You are smart to be reading the ingredients. Vitamin E and aloe are good. But it is often the ‘other ingredients’ that are not so good. I might question such a high SPF too? And do know what the SPF chemical is? I use products from a small family owned company called ‘Earth to Body’. Pure carrier oils, homemade creams. Their soaps are incredible. Their products protect you. They’re different. You can even visit their shop and see them make the product. Did you know that commercial products are loaded with formaldehyde?" Paisley: (horrified) "Formaldehyde? I’ve never seen formaldehyde on a label? Seriously? Is it in my baby’s diaper cream?” You silently wonder if your

coffee contains formaldehyde? White Linen: "Most probably. It’s a strong preservative, as you know. Think about healthy skin care as being a food product. It should not have a ‘forever’ shelf life. There are different names for everything, so it is confusing for us when reading a label." Paisley: ‘’You are scaring me! Do I have formaldehyde on me now? What else am ingesting through my skin?" White linen: "Propylene glycol, mineral oil aka petroleum, SLS, tricolsan and the list goes on. Today, it is hard to hide stuff from us. While Google may have some misinformation, if you research carefully, you can figure out what is best. You can also make some of your own skin care. But if you choose not to, and I do not have the time, ‘Earth to Body’ is the absolute BEST." Paisley: “Where should I begin?” Stay tuned! We stand behind our products.We give great customer service.

“We have patience galore!”

Earl De La Perralle (extreme right) will forever be remembered as someone who truly loved life and who made sure everyone around him felt the same.

For as long as Sun Youth has had a football program, the organization's co-founder Earl De La Perralle has been at its helm, allowing it to grow tremendously over the last decades. Anybody involved with youth football in Quebec knows the name Earl De La Perralle or as he’s often referred to, “the Godfather”. As

president of the Quebec Midget Football League, he was also instrumental in the development of amateur football in Quebec and great influence and inspiration to countless athletes and fellow coaches. Through the sports programs at Sun Youth, he positively affected the lives of thousands of young Montrealers by focusing on the development of personal responsibility and education. It was always important to him that every kid had a right to play the sports they love. Earl emphasized the value of gaining an education through sport, moving on to university and gaining the skills to create success throughout a lifetime. The
