There are many ways to translate a given sentence in a specific language combination and they may all be right.  But, which ones are more acceptable within the Canadian / CTTIC context? This is an interactive workshop where the facilitator (a certified translator) and participants will have a text to translate before they come to the workshop. Participants will give their version of the translation of each sentence and get the perspective of the facilitator, who will elaborate on common issues.

Sleep experts today aren’t as prescriptive as they once were about how much shut-eye humans require each night. “You need as much sleep as it takes for you to stay awake and alert the next day, without caffeine,” says Nathaniel Watson, M.D. It’s also okay if you wake up in the middle of the night, as long as you fall back asleep. Still, most people don’t function well with less than seven hours of sleep, and regularly getting less than that amount can, over time, harm your health. Continued sleep shortages contribute to depression, heart disease, lowered immunity, obesity, and Type-2 diabetes, among other ills. Why are so many of us sleeping so little? One reason is simple math: Americans are working longer—an average of 44 hours per week, according to an August 2015 Gallup Poll. Working longer hours, plus having longer commutes, leaves less time for domestic chores—paying bills, doing repairs, dealing with paperwork for taxes or kids’ colleges—which get stuffed into twilight hours. In today’s global economy, working late into the night or first thing in the morning is often a necessity. That kind of shift work can wreak havoc on the body’s sleep-wake cycle.
