REER ou CELI? J'ai mieux! Cette fameuse question turlupine bien des épargnants alors que la saison des REER se termine le 29 février.

REER ou CELI? J'ai mieux!

Pourtant, il y a une façon d'épargner encore plus payante pour les familles... et j'ai nommé le régime enregistré d'épargne-études (REEE). Malheureusement, peu de Québécois ont réellement conscience des avantages du REEE, si je me fie à un sondage diffusé lundi par Universitas, chef de file de l'épargne-études. En effet, à peine 9 % des familles ayant des enfants priorisent le REEE, contre 52 % pour le REER et 33 % pour le CELI. Il faut croire que les alléchantes subventions associées au REEE restent encore méconnues, même si le programme créé il y a 18 ans a atteint sa maturité. C'est peut-être parce que les règles du REEE sont relativement complexes et que les institutions financières ne font pas de battage publicitaire comme pour le REER. Elles devraient ! Pourquoi ? En cotisant 2500 $ par année, les parents peuvent toucher la subvention annuelle maximale de 750 $ par enfant.

My mom probably gave him the “That’s nice, dear,” treatment while I’m sure I was distracted by a bowl of Cheerios or something. But for fifteen years, this purpose informed all of my brother’s life decisions: what he studied in school, where he chose to live, who he connected with and even what he did with many of his vacations and weekends. And now, after almost half a lifetime of work later, he’s the chairman of a major political party in his city and the youngest judge in the state.

In the next few years, he hopes to run for office for the first time. Don’t get me wrong. Most of us have no clue what we want to do with our lives.

New Species Of Human Discovered In South Africa

So huge that its profound implications will shake up our very own family tree. The University of Witwatersrand, in collaboration with National Geographic, is proud to announce a remarkable story of human heritage. The discovery of an early human ancestor that sits beautifully within our own genus of Homo. I ecstatically present to you, Homo naledi. This incredible fossil find comes from the richest single hominin assemblage so far discovered in Africa. A textbook-worthy accident, H. naledi was first stumbled upon two years ago by amateur cavers during an exploration of a cave system known as Rising Star, located within South Africa’s famous Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site.

Pixar In A Box Teaches Math Through Real Animation Challenges

It was 1998 and he was working on the experimental short film “Geri’s Game.” DeRose needed to figure out how to make a sculpture hand model with many angular planes look smooth and skin-like on the screen. To do this he developed an algorithm using weighted averages that won him a Scientific and Technical Academy Award in 2006. Pixar is constantly solving new technical challenges that allow its artists, designers and storytellers a broader range of movement and texture in the movies they make. Now the company is teaming up with Khan Academy to use examples like DeRose’s discovery of surface representation to show students how the math and science they’re learning in school is applied by Pixar animators.
