  • Canadian surgeons urge people to throw out bristle BBQ brushes

    Canadian surgeons are urging people to throw out wire-bristled barbecue brushes, because none of them have figured out a surefire way of removing the wires when they get stuck in people's throats. The thin, sharp wires can come off the brushes, attach to barbecue grills and cling to food without being noticed. If it's swallowed it can cause damage to the throat and epiglottis, which is the flap of cartilage that covers the opening of the windpipe when swallowing.

  • ‘Big Lobi,’ a giant lobster purchased for $270 and set free, found dead two days later

    CHATHAM, Mass. — A lobster bought from a Massachusetts fish market for $270 and set free by twin brothers who didn’t want it to become someone’s dinner has apparently died. Chris and David Schmidt, of New Jersey, bought the 10-kilogram lobster and released it Thursday in the waters off Chatham. They dubbed the crustacean Big Lobi after Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz, whose nickname is Big Papi. The Cape Cod Times reports that a local retiree found a dead 10-kilogram lobster in the same area on Saturday. Experts say it appears to be the same one. The director of marine fisheries research at the Center for Coastal Studies says lobsters live in deep, cold water, and the shallows where Big Lobi

  • Canada house prices to rise sharply on cheap money, speculation

    By Anu Bararia BENGALURU (Reuters) - The sharp acceleration in Canadian home prices shows no sign of abating this year, though economists expect the pace will be reined in by high household debt and a growing lack of affordability, a Reuters poll found. Foreign wealth, cheap borrowing costs and bets that urban centers Vancouver and Toronto will remain profitable will likely support the Canadian property market over the next few years. House prices are forecast to rise 10 percent in 2016, almost double the pace expected in May's survey, and the fastest since polling for 2016 began two years ago, according to the poll of over 20 forecasters.

  • Bella Hadid Looks Like She's Wearing a Classic Leather Jacket, but Wait Until You See the Back

    When Bella Hadid opted for a night out with her sister Gigi, we knew to expect some sexy outfits. The model sisters are both fans of crop tops, sheer styles, and plunging necklines, and it was definitely more of the like when the two stepped out at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood. Gigi showed off her toned stomach in a teeny tiny off-the-shoulder shirt. Bella's black top was low-cut and she paired it with lace-up pants. But with all that statement-making style going on, it was actually a simple leather jacket — the one that Bella had draped across her shoulders — that truly caught our eyes. From the front, the piece looked pretty average — the typical topper that the fashion crowd gravitates toward.

  • Clinton aide Abedin dumps husband Weiner over new scandal

    Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin is done playing the good wife to Anthony Weiner, announcing Monday she is leaving the serially sexting ex-congressman after he was accused of sending raunchy photos and messages to yet another woman. Abedin, who as vice chair of Clinton's campaign is destined for big things if the Democrat is elected president, stayed with Weiner after a sexting scandal led him to resign from Congress in 2011 and after a new outbreak of online misbehaviour wrecked his bid for New York mayor in 2013. The New York Post published photos late Sunday that it said Weiner had sent last year to a woman identified only as a "40-something divorcee" who lives in the West and supports Republican Donald Trump.

  • This Teacher's New Homework Policy Is Going Viral For All of the Right Reasons

    When a teacher addresses their homework policy for the year, their expectations aren't usually met with smiling faces. The progressive second grade teacher at Godley Elementary School in Godley, TX, sent out a letter to parents explaining that her students will not be given specific assignments to complete at home — homework will only consist of what students did not finish during the school day. According to studies, as well as an article from the Washington Post, there hasn't been any research that's found any benefit to assigning homework of any kind — or of any amount — to elementary school students. As a mom and as a teacher, [I found that] a lot of homework just wasn't necessary, and it wasn't the right thing for my students," Young told POPSUGAR.
