Canadian Young Scientist Journal is launched in Ward 5

The Canadian Young Scientist Journal (CYSJ) gives credence to the view that motivation does lead to innovation and that the written word will never go out of fashion.

The CYSJ was launched in May, 2008. It is a testament to the energy and dedication of the staff and students at Northview Heights Secondary School. Some of the writers and editors came to our board meeting on May 21, 2008 to meet with Board Chair John Campbell (Second from the right) and Director Gerry Connelly (Third from the right). Also joining the team were Superintendent Gen Ling Chang (far left) and Northview Principal Sandra Tondat (Far right). CYSJ founder and Editor-in-Chief Northview Staff member Alexandre Noukhovitch was widely congratulated for getting the project going.

When I leaf through the pages of this journal and the names of these young authors and thinkers leap off the page, I wonder who among this crowd with bring to us great breakthroughs in medicine and health that we do not know about today. Who will guide us through the next generation of space discovery; and who will ensure that the quality of life can be just as important as longevity.

Meir Medical Center: A great institution of hope, education and inspiration

On the night of May 28, I attended an event to help support Canadian Friends of Meir Medical Center, located in Tel Aviv. This facility is renowned for its advances in the medical field and its strong commitment to treat anyone and everyone who comes through its doors. This medical facility is a great lighthouse and example for others. It is said that this hospital treats 10% of Israelis. The funds raised at this event will be directed to the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit. The event honoured Dr. Bernard Goldman, now professor emeritus at the University of Toronto and former chief of heart surgery and surgery at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and Women’s College Hospital . Also honoured was Toronto community activist Shirley Anne Haber. Shaarei Shomayim Synagogue in Toronto did a fantastic job of hosting this memorable event.
