INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday -Today’s Horoscope!

Hey guys. How was your  week?? I hope it´s fine, anyway today it´s FRIDAYYYY !! Yeahhh !!

Do you believe in horoscopes? I think even if you are a skeptic reading horoscopes is entertaining for everybody. Sometimes it may be truth, and sometimes you can´t stop laughing because it didn’t get right in any single word. So read what the horoscopes says for you today and judge by yourself if it’s true or not:

Aries (3/21-4/19)

Today you might feel a little depressed and apathetic, like you don’t care what happens right now. You might try to get your mind off those feelings by spending money. This works, Aries, but don’t spend any more than you have to. These feelings really have more to do with the past than the present. If old pain wells up, let it go. Tomorrow all will seem a lot better!

Taurus (4/20-5/20)

Today you might be with friends who want to go out on the town and spend money. Shopping, eating in fancy restaurants, or going to dance clubs could be in their plans. This is fine, Taurus, as long as you don’t get caught up in the excess. Find a happy medium between spending too much and acting like a party pooper.

Gemini (5/21-6/20) 

Pressure and worries involving home and family could get in the way of your concentration today, Gemini. There may have been a quarrel with a household member that weighs on your mind. The best way to deal with this is to give yourself and everyone else time to cool down. Later you’re likely to find that it has all blown over.

Cancer (6/21-7/22)
Organizing your office and paying bills are likely to be on your agenda today, Cancer. You could feel overwhelmed by the tasks, and you might be tempted to put them off. It’s better to take it slowly until you get everything done. You don’t have to do them all at once. This should lessen the stress. Spend a quiet evening at home.

Leo (7/23-8/22) 

Excessive food and drink could have you feeling rather sluggish and indifferent to everything. This can get in the way of your usual kindness and affection, but it shouldn’t. Get some rest, take a stomach remedy, and get back to your old self! You might also be tempted to overspend at some point. Think about it first!

Virgo (8/23-9/22)

Today a number of chores around the home could have you feeling overwhelmed, Virgo. Family members might abandon you, leaving you disgruntled. Do the most pressing and leave the rest for when they’re home! There might be a difference of opinion between you and your mate. Try to see both sides of the issue and circumvent any serious disagreements.

Libra (9/23-10/22) 

Some minor but annoying communications could interrupt your routine today. You won’t appreciate the distraction, Libra, but it’s best to take care of whatever it is and then go back to your tasks. You might have to spend part of the day running errands. Traffic might have you frazzled. Spend the evening relaxing at home. You’ve worked hard and you deserve it!


Boredom and apathy could tempt you to run to the mall and spend a lot of money on luxuries. You might overindulge in food and drink. This can make you feel better temporarily, Scorpio, but in the end all you will have is an empty wallet and a stomachache. Treat yourself, but don’t throw caution to the wind. This feeling will pass by tomorrow, and you don’t want to regret your day!

Sagittarius ( 11/22-12/21)

A lot of activity could take place around home today. It could involve a number of visitors, or it could simply be a lot of work that needs doing. Either way, you might feel a bit frazzled, and the temptation to run away from it all might be almost irresistible. Relax! There’s no need to stress out. Just do what needs to be done and enjoy the rest of the day.

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

News of unforeseen success could come your way today, leaving you reeling and breathless. You might feel a bit dazed, Capricorn, like you don’t know what to do with yourself. It might take a while to gather yourself. A lot of letters and phone calls may come your way, some routine, some congratulatory. You could write or call a number of your friends. Some errands may be necessary.

Aquarius (1/20-2/18) 

Social events or group activities may prove draining today, as a lot of people might want to take advantage of your talents. Your kind, accommodating nature might cause you to try to make everyone happy, Aquarius, but this isn’t realistic. You might stress yourself to the point of not caring what gets done. Be discriminating about what you commit to doing.

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

Excess is the word for today, Pisces. You may feel overly optimistic and enthusiastic about everything, and you could throw yourself into it all a bit too eagerly. You could take on more than you can handle. There is the danger of tiring yourself out physically. You could also go the other way and become very lazy, not wanting to do much of anything. Remember, moderation is the best approach.

Have a great weekend everybody and join us in our future events. We’ll be really glad on getting to know you a little bit better!!

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday – Mario Fighting for Kids

This year six million children will die from hunger related causes and more than 750 children will require treatment for cancer at BC Children’s Hospital. Sadly, those statistics are probably not the first thing you want to hear on this lovely Casual Friday, but it’s true.

I don’t know where most of you are in life, but for myself, I often take my warm house, clean food and water and my healthy body for granted. More than one billion people in the world cannot afford to do so. The past Thanksgiving holiday has made me think about what I can do about these problems that seem so big and untouchable.

This is why I want to tell you about an amazing person and his ambitious goal that I’m so honoured to be a part of:

Meet Mario Schiopu.

Mario is a former Romanian karate champion and has grown up seeing malnourished children in his home country. Yet, he has also seen the generosity of Children’s Hunger Fund in distributing 1 billion dollars in food and other resources to help 10 million children in 73 countries worldwide. As well, Mario witnessed the difficulties of leukemia on his close friend’s son, Adrian last year. Thankfully, with the chemotherapy treatment Adrian received at BC Children’s Hospital, Adrian is now cancer-free and full of energy!

Seeing the positive effect that these charities have brought, Mario feels the need to do something more. Instead of celebrating with an extravagant party for his 50th birthday, Mario has decided to combine his passions of karate and fitness with helping children in need at the same time.

How is he going to accomplish this? Mario will be making a huge comeback in the karate world by fighting at the 2012 Karate BC Provincial Championship on November 17th and 18th. With his knowledge as a nutrition and fitness consultant, Mario is proving that even at the age of 50 he has what it takes to compete and win at this prestigious tournament. Mario is hoping to raise awareness and funds for the two charities very close to his heart – Children’s Hunger Fund and BC’s Children Hospital.

By fighting with everything he has, Mario is committed to helping children who are suffering with childhood diseases or are in desperate need of food. This may seem like such an ambitious goal, but Mario’s heart is definitely big enough.

A humanitarian walk in Calgary and Edmonton!

A walk named Light of the Night will take place in Calgary and Edmonton on September the 25th. This walk is aimed at raising money against cancer and its an amazing experience. It is a twilight walk and people carry illuminate balloons. Red for the supporters, white for the ones who have or survived from a cancer and gold for those walking in memory of a loved one.

This walk takes place in 68 places of North America every September. Participating in the Night Walk is a experience that will keep everyone humble, those that know someone that survived cancer, those how knew someone that didn’t. Even if you are one of the lucky ones and have never come in contact with cancer it is still a good thing to participate in this walk. The Cancer foundation can use every person and donation to find a cure for this dreadfull disease.

Light The Night is the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s of Canada’s major fundraiser. This year, the goal is to raise $3,000,000 and they only reached a third! The money is used for research, patients care and advocacy. So you have the opportunity to take part to a real movement which help the whole population. Cancer is knew as the illness of our century!
