    The mother of three children killed by a drunk driver in Vaughan, Ont., has penned a heartbreaking Facebook post to mark the one-year anniversary of their deaths in which she suggests that she has been the victim of extortion attempts from people who picked up items from the crash site.

  • I asked 10 historians to nominate the 'worst' year in history — here are their picks

    Terror attacks, Zika, Brexit, police shootings, Syria, Trump, record-hot temperatures, the losses of Prince and David Bowie—this has been one unrelenting turn around the calendar. Have terrifying events truly piled up on each other in 2016, in a way they didn’t in any other year in human history? Or is it impossible to judge the awfulness of a year while it’s still unfolding?

The question of how to determine a “worst year” in history piqued my interest. So I decided to ask a group of historians to nominate

  • This is the most annoying and possibly dangerous thing about new cars

    We've started to notice a theme in many of the new cars and trucks, including SUVs, that we test out here at Business Insider on our Transportation team: confusing automatic-transmission shifters. We're not talking about stick shifts here; those are still, mercifully, relatively straightforward. But the good old park-reverse-neutral-drive setups of old, when you simply moved a shifter up and down, have given way to more elaborate systems.
