Will your kids be high-performers in the workplace?
Forbes
In the 1950s and 60s, researchers were curious to find out if there was a correlation between intelligence, creativity, and high-performance. At the time, psychologist Ellis Paul Torrance was conducting a series of tests on children. Kids in his study were not only tested on their intelligence but they were also tested on their creative abilities—challenged to do things like make an improvement to a toy so that other kids might like it more.

Nightmare? I want a day care on Elm Street
The Globe and Mail
Some days, politics really does seem like a horror show. Witness the return of income splitting — like a serial killer in a slasher movie, refusing to stay dead, staggering back with a grunted promise to hack off $50,000 here and transplant it over there. It had seemed good and finished after Finance Minister Jim Flaherty's well-placed boot, but apparently no one's noticed the first rule of slasher movies, which is to never turn your back on the dead thing.

Now a new study reveals that the more absorbed the adults were in their devices, the more likely they were to respond harshly to a child's bad behavior. For the study, researchers from Boston University Medical Center camped out in Boston-area fast food places between July and August 2013.

Global News
A popular internet scam has a new target: day care operators. Calgary's Kimberly Alcock-Jenkins runs a dayhome, and nearly fell victim to the scam after a man claiming to be moving from Mexico contacted her about child care. They exchanged several messages online, before the man sent Alcock-Jenkins a cheque to hold a spot. However, it was made out for more than required. The man said it was a mistake and asked her to wire the rest to a shipping company he was using to move his furniture.

Proposed child care centre would be third phase in Tillicum Village
Daily News
Tammie Wylie slowly drives by a recently carved totem pole, which is sitting in the grass, protected by a plastic tarp. "It's kind of funny. We have a welcoming pole for our child care centre, but no child care centre," she says. Alongside the totem is an empty lot where Wylie, a project manager for Tillicum Lelum Friendship Centre, has been helping to plan the city's first licensed aboriginal child care centre. The centre would be the third phase in the Tillicum Village site in south Nanaimo, if it can get past a major roadblock — funding the $1.7 million project.

It wasn't your typical sun vacation to the Caribbean.
