Canada’s Most Comprehensive, Interactive Public Health Report Card (CCHS 2015-16 Combined)

I just added a Tableau Public set of dashboards showing combined 2015 and 2016 year results for the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS), which allowed for comparisons and rate calculations at geographies smaller than provincial and territorial levels. These included Census Metropolitan Areas (CMAs) and health areas (units, zones, districts, etc.), as well as combined large, medium and small population centres, and rural areas, within a province or territory. The roughly 680 thousand rows of data, including calculations of statistical significance in differences done by Statistics Canada, allowed for some amazing comparisons… and eye opening results! There currently is nothing else quite like this published by anybody to show CCHS results!

I could not embed the dashboards here because WordPress does not allow for JavaScript. However, you can see the dashboards with explanations here.

Vietaliano Cuisine – Steamed White Rice with Pasta Sauce and Meat

Pasta sauce and meat with steamed white rice and veggies

Tonight on Wok with Tan, who ever said pasta sauce had to be eaten with pasta? Not this guy!

Lately, I’ve been making pasta with tomato pasta sauce, meat, and white mushrooms and baby spinach put in the boiling pot just before I turn it off to soften the two a bit, with more meat and other veggies than I need with my pasta dish. I then the save the extra to eat the night after with steamed white rice, in a new batch of pasta sauce that I heat up together with the cold extras from the fridge, rather than doing it with a microwave.

I then add a fresh batch of green onions and cilantro to give it a touch of zing and aroma, and voilà!
