Have you ever heard of Autism? Maybe you've seen it in passing in headlines from North American news outlets or a character has it in a TV show you watch. Maybe you know that people with an Autism Spectrum Disorder usually have problems with communication and forming relationships. Maybe you know that its cause is still partially unknown, there is no cure, but can be managed with a combination of therapy and a specialized education structure. You might even know that with the right combination of support, a child on the Autism Spectrum can grow up to be a functioning and average member of society.

When it feels like every day brings more gloom or drama, we are grateful that there is one constant - the uncomplicated, unconditional love of your pet. You've seen the news stories about pets who save their owners , videos of silly pet tricks or simple memes reminding you how powerful the love of a pet is. At Hotspotgy, we collectively have 11 dogs at the moment, not counting the many we've lost to illness over the years. We can personally testify that after a long day of stress, there is nothing quite like seeing the unbridled joy of your pets as they run to greet you. It could also be that they're just looking forward to being fed. We aren't going to think too hard about that.

Throughout the world there has always been a substantial segment of the population that is living in less than ideal conditions with estimates of the number of absolute poor reaching 100 million people worldwide.

The homeless are the most highly visible yet unseen residents in the capital city and country wide. At the most basic economic level, homelessness is caused by poverty and unemployment. However, becoming homeless is not the result of just a single event or factor; instead it’s a myriad of contributing factors that leads to someone becoming homeless. The many unfortunate individuals who have found themselves in a situation that could happen to practically anyone are not always drunks or drug abusers or mental patients, they are not the perpetual social problem that many believe them to be and after all this time some of us still look upon these people as a problem, an inconvenience. As such, most people have not taken the time to look past the stereotypes that concern these people and actually find out how they ended up being homeless, living in a shelter or the streets.

On Friday 23rd May, 2014 the life of 16 month old Renie Rogers changed forever. Her mother Shawnette Rogers recalled “I was cooking in a pressure pot and I thought she was sleeping so I went at the sink and was cleaning salt fish when I heard the whistle on the pressure pot blew off,” the kerosene stove somehow fell on Renie resulting in her suffering first degree burns about her body.  

Renie began the fight of her life since that day, undergoing two (2) corrective surgeries thus far. She is forced to deal with the constant pain that comes with cleaning and dressing some of the wounds which to date have not healed. The emotional trauma this baby suffers is quite evident in her facial expressions as she listens to us discuss that day.
