'Subreddit' aims to get Calgarians off the computer and start socializing in the community
When Josh Innes boarded the nine-hour flight from London, England, to come work in Calgary, he thought it might take months to build relationships and meet people in a new city.
But a few days after landing in town, Innes joined the Calgary Social Club, an online group that plans various spontaneous events in the city.
"I went to my first event — a wing night at Joyce on 4th — and within two minutes there is this guy talking to me," Innes says.
"The club is truly amazing. It saved me from knowing nobody and having to go out to try to meet people in bars and has turned into something that I truly feel a part of."

Privacy concerns of new Timeline convinces Calgary writer to clean slate
My public-opinion courtroom will soon be in session, and I will present my case as a job candidate.
As I prepare to look for work, human resources people Googling my name will serve as my career judges, juries and executioners.
The onus is on me to make a strong case that I am the one worthy of the position. If I do, I'll be able to get that interview and go from there.

Prohab seeks to overcome image and cost barriers associated with bike helmets
Since 2002, bicycle helmets have been mandatory in Alberta for all cyclists under the age of 18. But unlike four other provinces (British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island) where helmet use has been legally mandated for cyclists of all ages, bicycle helmets are not mandatory for adults in Alberta.
Statistics Canada reported that in 2009, about one third of Canadian adolescents and young adults wore a bicycle helmet all the time.

Food tour on 17th Avenue S.E. introduces Calgarians to authentic restaurants
The smells waft your way as soon as you walk through the door of this brick building; it's the sweet and yeasty fresh bread.
Your eyes search for the loaves but instead you see a glass case, displaying dark-cured sausages and a round of ham, it's light pink and looks juicy.
Turning around, you'll notice a few small aisles packed full of German imports like little black-licorice cats and marzipan.

Calgarians gather downtown to have their voices heard
That slogan was one of many that could be heard echoing throughout downtown Calgary on Saturday afternoon as hundreds of Calgarians took to the streets in support of Occupy Calgary, a peaceful demonstration whose overall purpose and message is as varied as it is passionate.
