  • Artificial turf: Homeowners risk fine for 'year-round' grass

    There's a reason why the grass is greener on some Toronto lawns: it's not real and it can result in a costly municipal penalty.

  • Dominant LeBron's near-triple-double leads Kyrie-less Cavs to 2-0 lead over Hawks

    “In the fourth quarter, I played way too much isolation basketball, one-on-one basketball [with] a lot of the defenses set, and I was letting the clock run down way too much," James said after Game 1, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com. James brilliantly balanced the responsibilities of acting as both Cleveland's top scoring threat and its primary facilitator with All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving sidelined by left knee tendinitis, scoring 30 points on 10-for-22 shooting, serving up 11 assists and grabbing nine rebounds as the Cavaliers dominated the Hawks by a looks-closer-than-it-was score of 94-82 to sweep their visit to Philips Arena and take a commanding 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals back home to Ohio. Teams in NBA history to go up 2-0 in a best-of-7 series have gone on to win 94% of time.

  • The world's biggest oil exporter has quietly seized a market milestone from the U.S.

    As the United States raced over the past five years toward becoming a global petroleum powerhouse, the world’s biggest oil exporter Saudi Arabia quietly seized a market milestone from America: the largest source of peak summer demand. From June through August, when temperatures in Riyadh routinely rise above 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius), Saudi Arabia diverts as much as a tenth of its crude output to fuel power plants that run full tilt to meet surging demand from air conditioners. At the height of the U.S. energy boom, Texas landowner John Baen received about US$100,000 a month in royalty payments from companies producing oil and natural gas on his property. The result is that Saudi Arabia’s winter-to-summer “swing” in oil consumption has eclipsed that of the United States, where gasoline consumption jumps by as much as 10 per cent every summer as millions of families take advantage of school holidays and warm weather to embark on the classic American road trip.
