Today at #gomedia2014 the @canadianmint has a half-million-dollar bar of gold on display. It weighs 23 pounds, is chained to its pedestal and comes with two security guards.

Spotted on my run today: according to the sign, this wooden structure on the shores of the Red River in Winnipeg is a toboggan run. Closed now, but in winter, when everything is frozen, you climb up the steps at right (there are two sets, each with a ramp on the side) and then slide down the ramp on the left, presumably landing on the snowy, frozen river. #gomedia2014 #exploremb #explorecanada

The entryway of Winnipeg’s amazing new Museum of Human Rights. It officially opens on September 20 but we’re getting a bit of a sneak peek at #gomedia2014 tonight. (at Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights)

Sampled some incredible local natural ice cream from winnipeg’s @cornellcreme. I highly recommend the lemon meringue. #gomedia2014 #onlyinthepeg

A sunny morning at Stella’s, my current go-to place in Winnipeg for my morning espresso and green smoothie. #gomedia2014 (at Stella’s Cafe: Plug in)

This crazy diver was in the tank encouraging the polar bears and seals to swim around for us. The new Arctic exhibit at the Assiniboine Zoo here in Winnipeg is pretty awesome. #gomedia2014 #exploremb #onlyinthepeg (at Assiniboine Park & Zoo)

White and wild rice pudding with wild blueberries to finish off our First Nations-themed meal that also included three sisters soup, pickerel with wild rice and (for the vegetarian) wild rice and yam fritters. I’m at Neechi Foods, a co-op in winnipeg’s north end that supports, employs and trains people in the neighbourhood and the broader aboriginal community. #gomedia2014 #exploremb (at Neechi Commons)

Left Whitehorse this morning to head to the #gomedia2014 conference in Winnipeg. Three days in @travelyukon was just a teaser and I can’t wait to get back to explore even more. (Photo of me paddling the Yukon River near Whitehorse by @lovethywalrus.) #explorecanada #exploreyukon

Wood bison were once extinct in the Yukon but biologists introduced some from a herd in the NWT and they’ve been repopulating. We got to see some (along with elk, deer, thin horn sheep, a moose and a muskox) at the super cool Yukon Wildlife Preserve, near the soothing Takhini hot springs and adjoining creperie.

Paddled down the Yukon River today with @lovethywalrus and Kurt, our guide from Kanoe People, an outfitter based in Whitehorse. No bears or moose but we did see lots of eagles and ravens. Kurt is heading off Sunday with another guide to take a group of six tourists from Japan on a six-day trip in the @travelyukon wilderness. Added that one to my bucket list! #exploreyukon #explorecanada #gomedia2014 #whptodayimet (at Kanoe People)

Did you know @travelyukon has sand dunes? This is the Carcross “Desert”, the remains of a glacial lake that dried out after the last ice age and has as many ATV tracks as you’d think. #exploreyukon #explorecanada #gomedia2014

Why Diets Don’t Work is a criticism of conflicting dieting messages, but it’s also a story of health. Kat Tancock teaches readers why it's okay to let go of "fat guilt" and a deprivation mindset, and she shows them how to focus instead on choosing and controlling their environments and being aware of external and internal eating cues.
