A blog (a blend of the term web log) is a type of or part of a website. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order.

Most blogs (including this one) are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via widgets on the blogs and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites

Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pates, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.

As of 16 February 2011 (2011 -02-16), there were over 156 million public blogs in existence.

Child Care Report Card

Child Care report card: Harper’s score ‘unsatisfactory’ 

OTTAWA – A report card grading the Canada-wide parties’ child care election promises says Stephen Harper and his Conservatives are unwilling to learn and should develop active listening skills around parents’ needs for reliable, high quality child care.

The report card, produced by the Code Blue for Child Care campaign, takes Harper to task for the lack of any plan to create and fund a range of good early childhood education and care services and improved parental leave.

“If child care was a course and the Conservatives were in the classroom, they would stand out for their lack of interest and unwillingness to contribute ideas,” says Shellie Bird. “While we found there was room for improvement with the other Canada-wide parties, they at least did their homework, and got some good scores and made commitments to universal child care.”
