    Awareness. It’s a word we see often in relation to various problems — disease, violence, homelessness, illiteracy, etc, etc, etc. But a crucial fact that many, perhaps most, seem to overlook is that awareness in and of itself is worth nothing.  A word that should be a call to arms has instead become a lazy person’s buzzword, a way of feeling like one is doing something without doing anything at all. The only kind of awareness that is worth a damn is the kind that is followed by direct, positive action — and no one has embraced that … Read more

  Mention pole dancing and many people immediately think of table dances, gaudy neon and “making it rain”.  But that’s an image that Jessica Lyn of AVA Fitness (formerly Polenastics Dance & Fitness) is doing a great job of dispelling as she introduces increasing numbers of students to the concept of pole dancing for fitness and competition.   As one of the uneducated masses, I wondered “What exactly IS pole dancing in its non-‘exotic’ form?”, and looked for the answer at an intermediate/advanced class in AVA’s New Westminster location.   As explained to me by Lyn, pole dancing actually has … Read more
