The Amazing Kreskin

The world's most famous mentalist communicates with The Buzz

by Treva McNally

Who is Kreskin? If you live in a small Canadian city and don't watch talk shows, you might be forgiven for thinking that Kreskin used to be a minor celebrity who had a TV show that ran in the 70s. You might be surprised to learn that he made 340 stage and television appearances last year, he appears regularly on David

Poetry is Discovery

Poetry is Discovery
Profile: Brent MacLaine

by Lee Ellen Pottie

Reports of a new book of poetry being published never make the headlines of the six o'clock news, and hardly ever make a wave outside the small literary circle of poet aficionado/as. But I swear this time is different: Signal Poetry Editions of Vèhicule Press in Montrèal is publishing Wind and Root by Prince Edward Island poet, Brent MacLaine-his first

by Derek Martin

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

The new millennium has finally arrived and the world hasn't changed dramatically, contrary to the ominous predictions of many soothsayers, naysayers, and others prone to predict doom and gloom.

Music Opens the Mind

by Andrea Ledwell

A recent article in the Globe and Mail discussed a study on the possible influence of music on the brain, specifically for problem-solving skills-yet another study showing the positive impact of music in our lives.
