  • This Is What Happens During Commercial Breaks at the Oscars

    The Academy Awards are Hollywood's biggest night, but they are also one of Hollywood's longest nights. Stars start walking the red carpet at 3 in the afternoon and then report to their seats inside the Dolby Theatre by about 5 p.m., where they stay until the show wraps up at around 9 p.m. But they don't actually stay put in the audience that whole time! Between heading backstage, watching the live action, and mingling during commercial breaks, there's a lot more fun that goes on when the cameras aren't rolling.

  • 'Meet a Muslim Family' aims to dispel fears of the religion

    A Muslim organization has launched a cross-Canada outreach campaign called Meet a Muslim Family, in order to help dispel myths about the religion. The campaign was launched by the Ahmadiyya Muslim community at mosques across Canada yesterday, including the Baitur Rahman Mosque in Delta, B.C. Iman Balal Khokhor said they don't want their religion to be misunderstood in light of recent violent attacks by extremists in the name of Islam. They don't know their culture, their religion, and we want to showcase that in fact we are Canadian and just like any other Canadians," said Khokhor.

  • Ontario Liberals condemn Tory MP Cheryl Gallant's comments on sex-ed curriculum

    Ontario's governing Liberals are firing back at a Conservative MP who suggested the province's updated sex-education curriculum puts children at risk. Ottawa-area Conservative Cheryl Gallant urged Parliament to pass legislation with tougher penalties for child predators last week, saying the need was demonstrated by Ontario's "sweeping changes" to its sex-ed curriculum. Gallant said if withdrawing the revised curriculum can prevent one child "from being groomed for exploitation," then it must be scrapped. Sandals urged Ontario's Progressive Conservatives to distance themselves from Gallant's remarks in the House of Commons.

  • Irvine Welsh’s ‘The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins’

    It is not advisable to read Irvine Welsh’s 13th book, “The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins,” and snack simultaneously. Because Welsh, known for his gleeful depictions of the depraved degenerates who populate Scotland’s seediest hollows, has turned his attention to one of his adopted homes, Miami Beach, that “sun-drenched refuge for strutting grotesques and desperate narcissists.” This is not Welsh’s first Rollerblade around Florida; “Crime” followed a coke-addled Edinburgh detective along the same bright sidewalks. Meanwhile, the 200-pound Lena ­Sorenson (her weight is “a crime against the aesthetic order in South Beach”) is the sole witness to this scene, which she captures on her phone. When she shares the footage with a local news station, Lucy is painted as a hero.

  • Iraq launches large-scale military operation to recapture Tikrit from Islamic State group

    Backed by allied Shiite, Sunni and Iranian fighters, Iraqi security forces launched a large-scale military operation Monday to recapture Saddam Hussein's hometown from the Islamic State extremist group, a major step in a campaign to reclaim territory in northern Iraq controlled by the militants. State-run Al-Iraqiya television said that forces were attacking Tikrit from different directions, backed by artillery and airstrikes by Iraqi fighter jets. The military commander of Salahuddin region, Gen. Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi, told state TV the operation was "going on as planned," with fighting taking place outside Tikrit mainly on its eastern side. Tikrit, the provincial capital of Salauhddin province, 130 kilometres (80 miles) north of Baghdad, fell to the Islamic State group last summer, along with the country's second-largest city of Mosul and other areas in the country's Sunni heartland.
