Our Power is our Care, Our Power is our Presence!
 
"Microsoft’s search engine Bing has sparked controversy after translating the word “Daesh”— a term that refers to the fundamentalist group Islamic State— as “Saudi Arabia.”
 
"English has morphed into several other languages all over the world. James Harbeck looks at the origins and possible future of these strange descendants."
 
The Toronto Power Group is a group of individuals interested in personal growth and empowerment. "Come join the September 14th event featuring Dan Perdue which will be speaking on The Power of Personal Leadership!"
 
"In the UK, we have euphemisms for almost everything. We don’t lie – we misspeak. And we’re never old – but we are mature. The same cannot be said for many other countries. This often results in some wonderfully weird translations of movie titles…"
 
Translators & Interpreters: Thank you for being on time with your translation projects and for arriving to your interpreting assignments a few minutes prior to the scheduled time. Punctuality is an essential part of our work, a determinant of quality services and therefore, a condition to work with us. 
Empowerment Tips
 
The Amazing Benefits of Tea
 
Tea is known for its great flavour and healing aroma, but what are the real benefits of incorporating tea into your everyday lifestyle? Here are just a few of the amazing benefits of tea:
 
Great For Your Heart
Drinking tea has shown signs of greatly reducing the chance of heart attack and stroke. Aside from helping prevent various diseases, it also improves the cardiovascular system and overall heart health. 
 
Tea Has Less Caffeine Than Coffee
Some teas such as green tea have reduced levels of caffeine which takes away a large part of the negative effects but still gives you the boost you need to win the day. 
 
Promotes Weight Loss
Tea has been shown to boost your metabolism which keeps your body burning fat instead of storing it. It can also curb your cravings so you won't be as eager to head to the sugar cabinet. 
 
Helps With Digestion
Tea can aid in the digestion of foods and and the proper absorption of nutrients in the body. It can also calm nausea, headaches, and other small discomforts that may come up. 
 
Get Into Great Shape
Tea can actually boost exercise endurance. The antioxidants found in green tea boost your bodies ability to turn fat into fuel, which creates more muscular endurance. 
 
It Makes Strong Bones
Not only does tea work wonders on the heart and your entire cardiovascular system, it also makes for strong bones. Scientists have found that drinking tea regularly improves bone mineral density and bone strength. 
 
Improve Your Brain
Tea has been shown to help increase focus and alertness. It also helps keep the parts of the brain responsible for memory and learning in great shape. 
 
The Ultimate Relaxation
Whether you are feeling stressed, overworked, or just need a break, a warm tea will instantly calm you down and relive the tenseness you may have in your body. Next time you're feeling like you need something to relax, sit back, grab a tea, and enjoy! 
 
Improve your body, relax your mind, and take your health to the next level with incorporating tea into your daily routine. The results will blow you away!
