Our Power is our Care, Our Power is our Presence!
Two key figures rendered the historic US-NK summit possible Tuesday, breaching the language barrier between the US and North Korean leaders: the interpreters.
The pair have attracted much attention as the only people privy to the full content of the private meeting between the two leaders.
 
Former President George H.W. Bush was deep in nuclear negotiations with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. The 1990 talks, focused on an arms control treaty, were suddenly interrupted when a seasoned Soviet interpreter made a critical mistake.

Multi-Languages Annual Conference 
Speaker announcements
 
Every year we have one presentation at our conference that is not necessarily related to languages or language technologies. This year we have selected a fantastic speaker / neuroscientist who will share with us her research on Failure.
 
Failing With the Brain in Mind
 
By Dr. Mandy Wintink
 
Many of us are encouraged to succeed but we often ignore the role failing plays in that success. Contrary to popular practice, failure is not something we should avoid because failure helps us adjust and improve future outcomes. The brain is naturally wired to detect errors and adjust accordingly and therefore serves as a useful strategy for improving performance. This session will introduce participants to the neuroscience of failure in order to help reframe failure as natural and necessary as part of the process of learning and succeeding. 
 
Dr. Mandy Wintink, PhD is a Life Coach, Author, and CEO who focuses on applying knowledge of the brain to life skills and personal development. She earned her doctorate degree from Dalhousie University in Neuroscience and Psychology in 2005 and then founded the Centre for Applied Neuroscience in 2010 where she trains people to become a life coach through understanding neuroscience, psychology, yoga, meditation, and mindfulness. She also teaches neuroscience and psychology as a faculty member at the University of Guelph-Humber. 

 
With more than 100 languages and the ambition to connect even its smallest villages by air, India has become a testing ground for a new software being developed by US firm Honeywell that aims to make it easier to understand pilots speaking English with strong local accents.
 
As a company that cares, we are committed to helping those less fortunate around the world as well as the most vulnerable members of our communities in Canada. 
  
We promote charities that work to support missions in areas such as:
·       Youth
·       Homelessness
·       Mental health
·       Healthcare
·       Education
·       Developing countries
·       Ethnolinguistic communities
 
You can contribute by purchasing services though us, by donating directly or by becoming a volunteer. Volunteering is one of the best activities we can do to help others and at the same time help ourselves.  Check the charities in our list.
Join us on our Monday Smoothie Reset 
 
 
Here are Multi-Languages, we are always trying to find new ways to take our Health to the next level. When we find new strategies we get so excited to share it with you! We have recently come across the amazing benefits of doing a smoothie reset day. You can join our Facebook Group or simply do it on your own. 
 
Here are the top reasons why you should implement a 1-day smoothie day: 
 
Gives your Metabolism a Break!
When you are constantly giving your body food, your body is forced to break down that food and convert it to energy. Doing a weekly smoothie day gives your body a chance to rest from having to break down foods and allows your metabolism to have a quick reset.
  
Cleanses your System
When you only have liquids for the day, your body will naturally cleanse a lot of the built up toxins that come with the food you eat. In just one day, you can flush out a significant amount that your body otherwise wouldn't have the chance to fully break down and digest properly. 
 
A Mental Reset
Not only is a smoothie day good for a metabolism reset, it is also a great mental reset. It clears your mind from the constant thought of "when's the next meal?" Instead, it allows you to clear your mind and focus on the things you need to give energy to - all while having a delicious shake!
 
Healthy Start to the Week
The truth is, when we eat healthier, we tend to make healthier choices moving forward. By starting your week off with a smoothie reset day, you will make different decisions throughout the rest of the week in terms of what you put in your body and are more conscious of what will give you energy. 
 
There are many things that we can do to lead a healthy lifestyle. Deciding to incorporate a smoothie reset day into your lifestyle will add to your journey of living a healthy & energy rich life. Try it out for yourself and see the amazing benefits that doing a Reset day creates.
