"It's the ultimate digital sports media experience for the passionate Canadian fan," said Pary Bell, vice-president and general manager of Rogers Digital Media. "It doesn't matter if they're looking for ease and speed in finding the latest scores or statistics, or if they want a deep dive into the best sports analysis in the country. Fans are more empowered than ever to experience sports on their own terms at Sportsnet.ca, on the device of their choice."
Toronto-based healthcare communications company IDS Canada has launched a new website called Howreyou.com. The site is intended to provide access to personal and family health advice, primarily to women. It features content written by healthcare professionals and nutrition experts, including daily articles on healthy eating, care of children, women's health and men's health, among other topics. "Women are interested in a wide array of information relevant to the different people in their lives, whether it's information on how to boost their toddler's immune system, or how to have more energy and perform better at work, or even ways to encourage the men in their family to start taking their cholesterol seriously," said Lisa Tulipano, brand manager for the site. "Howreyou.com is the perfect health resource for the time-strapped modern woman. By making vetted health information from family doctors' waiting rooms available online, women across Canada can read and share relevant health information whether they are at work, running errands, or doing any one of the million things they need to accomplish during the day."
