  • Some workplaces catching Jays fever, letting employees watch first playoff games

    Workplaces across Canada are acknowledging that some of their employees have come down with serious cases of Blue Jays fever and are finding ways to provide on-the-job relief. Tactics range from setting up TVs or webstreams in common spaces, showing flexibility for individual time-off requests, and in one extreme case, turning thousands of head office workers loose to cheer on Canada's only major league baseball team as it begins its playoff run. Canadian Tire Corp. announced it would be closing corporate offices in Toronto and Calgary on Friday, giving roughly 5,000 employees the chance to take in the 12:45 p.m. ET game between the Jays and the Texas Rangers.

  • This Design Technique Will Make Any Home Look More Expensive (6 photos)

    Custom details can make the simplest of rooms more elegant. One especially easy and wallet-friendly custom upgrade is applied molding, sometimes called "picture boxing." This technique involves measuring and mounting molding directly to the walls, often in square or rectangular forms. The end result is at once simple and luxurious. Applied molding is a go-to trick for Scott McGillivray, host of Income Property on HGTV and real estate expert. He frequently uses the technique both on his show and in his own investment properties. "It's a perception of higher class," Scott says. Contemporary applied molding is, "a play off of traditional Victorian ideas, of grand chateaus that have expensive molding. That was a lot of work; the boards were hand-hewn or routered to fit the exact spaces." Thanks to developments with mass-produced fiberboard molding, that same historically classy look can be replicated for a reasonable price. Scott recommends getting adventurous with applied molding, as there really are no rules when it comes to customizing. Consider using molding above your bed, where a headboard might go, or paint molding a contrasting color from the wall to make certain spaces pop. Whatever you decide, the best part about applied molding is that most people can do it. Anyone with "basic carpentry skills" can perfect the technique when they follow Scott's six steps below.

The young boy was accused of using two hands to shove 18-year-old Christopher Chafe down an embankment outside Sydney Academy last winter. Defence lawyer James Snow said Chafe's grisly death was the result of "momentary inadvertence," not reckless behaviour.
