  • Brutal baboon battle erupts for throne at Toronto Zoo after matriarch dies

    After the matriarch died last year, a vicious battle erupted among the female baboons at the Toronto Zoo for her throne that endured for months, prompting a brief closure of the exhibit and providing a fascinating glimpse into the animals' behaviour. Medical records show numerous injuries among five of the six female olive baboons, from deep lacerations near their eyes to hair ripped out and tail injuries. The exhibit was closed for several days because "there were some injuries that we thought best to keep them at the back because our visiting public don't know baboon behaviour," said Maria Franke, the curator of mammals at the zoo.

  • 'World's sexiest robot' causes a frenzy at Beijing tech conference

    The World Robot Conference in Beijing was reportedly taken by storm this week when the latest iteration of Geminoid F – an almost terrifyingly-realistic robot woman – made an appearance during the show. Known to many as "the world's sexiest robot," the rubber-skinned android can speak, sing, and even act according to China's state-run news service.

  • Kitchen in Winnipeg home named best in the world

    The best contemporary kitchen in the world is right here in Winnipeg's River Heights, according to an international design contest. Architect Dov Secter is the winner, and the kitchen he designed is his own, which also serves as his office as he brings clients in to show them his work. "My wife is a great cook, and it's really a functional kitchen where the family all works together so we want to be able to hide things away quickly, have things quickly accessible, and if a client comes through, have places where everything can kind of disappear," he said.

  • Man set to recant oath to the Queen right after citizenship ceremony

    In a letter sent to the citizenship court judge earlier this month, Dror Bar-Natan states his opposition to the oath, which he calls "repulsive," and his plan to renege on the pledge following his citizenship ceremony on Monday. The Queen is a symbol of entrenched and outdated privilege and the pledge is tantamount to a "hazing" ritual, Bar-Natan said in an interview.

  • Michelle Obama Welcomed the White House Christmas Tree in a Wool Blazer (29 photos)

    Being the first lady comes with a lot of responsibility. And while being a trendsetter certainly pales in comparison to the weight of attempting to curb the childhood obesity problem in the United States or getting kids moving, dressing fashionably is part of the job. A few years into her husband’s presidency, Michelle Obama has already set herself apart from her predecessors, bringing a modern edge — and even J. Crew — to the White House. She’s also a political dresser, conscientiously picking labels to fit with occasions, from wearing a custom Vera Wang gown for a state dinner hosting Chinese President Xi Jinping and Tadashi Shoji when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie Abe came to Washington to Missoni in Italy and Preen in England.  Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

  • Paranoid Pensioner Buries Life Savings Underground; Cash Gets Eaten By Worms

    A pensioner who didn’t trust his local bank to look after his life savings chose to bury the money in the ground - only for most of it to be eaten by worms. Poor Wu Chen, 67, stashed the cash in a carrier bag five years ago, feeling sure it would be safe.

  • Mother who lost 3 kids, dad says she can't bear to have Christmas tree at home

    A grieving mother whose three children and father died in an alleged drunk driving crash north of Toronto says she and her husband can't bear to have a Christmas tree at home because it reminds them of their loss. Jennifer Neville-Lake says they set up a tree at the cemetery instead and picked out ornaments to represent each of their loved ones — a stormtrooper, a Rapunzel figurine, a character from the movie Frozen and Superman. Nine-year-old Daniel, Harrison, 5, and two-year-old Milly Neville-Lake were killed along with Gary Neville, 65, after the van they were in was T-boned by an SUV in Vaughan, Ont., on Sept. 27.

  • Canada housing agency sees looming hit from oil shock

    Canada's federal housing agency is expecting to see more homeowners fall behind in their mortgage payments in the western part of the country as a prolonged slump in oil prices hit household budgets and the once-soaring housing market. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp, which insures the bulk of Canadian home loans, said woes in the energy sector have not yet hit homeowners' ability to make their house payments, but signs of some distress will show up soon. "We have not seen a significant change in our arrears rate, but ... it's a little bit too soon for that to work its way through the system," CMHC vice-president Steven Mennill told reporters on a conference call.
