  • Macy's cuts ties with Trump, New York City reviews contracts

    Macy's Inc said on Wednesday it would end its business relationship with Donald Trump, and New York City said it was reviewing its contracts with the billionaire developer and U.S. presidential hopeful because of his comments insulting Mexicans. Calling Trump's remarks "disgusting and offensive," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement, "Trump’s comments do not represent the values of inclusion and openness that define us as New Yorkers." In New York City, where Trump built his fortune in real estate, his company has a contract to run a golf course at Ferry Point in the Bronx. Trump also manages two public skating rinks in Manhattan's Central Park.

  • A royal milestone: Britain's Princess Charlotte christened at church on queen's estate

    Prince William and his wife, Kate, marked a milestone for their newborn baby Princess Charlotte on Sunday — a christening ceremony on Queen Elizabeth II's country estate that was steeped in royal tradition. Hundreds of fans outside St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, a sprawling royal estate near England's eastern coast, cheered as William and Kate arrived with toddler Prince George and 9-week-old Charlotte, who was in a vintage pram. Following royal tradition, holy water from the River Jordan, where it is said Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, was used for the baptism.

  • Greek referendum: Campaigns, neck and neck in polls, reach dramatic finale

    Greeks packed city squares for dueling rallies late into the night Friday, as polls showed a dead heat between the 'yes' and 'no' camps ahead of a bailout referendum Sunday that could be Greece's most important vote since it joined the European Union. It is a celebration to overcome fear and blackmail," Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras told a crowd of 25,000 in front of parliament, who were chanting "oxi, oxi" — "no, no." Tsipras angered Greece's creditors by calling the referendum and is urging Greeks to vote no. Rallies for both campaigns were also held in 10 other Greek cities Friday.

  • Chinese stocks tumble again, ignoring Beijing's blandishments

    By Pete Sweeney SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China stocks fell sharply again on Thursday, fighting off fresh moves by regulators to restore confidence and raising questions about how much more firepower Beijing can bring to bear before a full-scale panic sets in. Shanghai's benchmark share index crashed below 4,000 points for the first time since April - a key support level that analysts said had been seen as a line in the sand that Beijing had to defend, below which more conservative investors would start ejecting from their leveraged positions, widening the rout. Chinese markets, which had risen as much as 110 percent from November to a peak in June, have collapsed at an incredibly rapid pace in since June 12, losing more than 20 percent in jaw-dropping volatility as money surges in and out of the market.

  • American tries to figure out what Canadian road signs mean, and fails

    Boston Globe film critic Ty Burr returned home to Massachusetts this week after spending some time "car camping" near the coast of New Brunswick with his wife. Burr's friends and family on Facebook were equally confused by a photo he posted of a green-and-white River Valley Scenic Drive signpost. "The signs of New Brunswick's highways and byways aren't exactly done wrong, but they seem to require a cognitive leap of which our American sensibilities, enfeebled by reality TV shows and Katy Perry songs, are incapable," he explained.

With the weakest free-agent pool in recent history, NHL general managers kept themselves from overpaying. No contract was longer than six years, Andrej Sekera's US$33 million with the Oilers was the most money and Mike Green's $6 million with the Red Wings the highest cap hit.

  • Old school or new? Math teachers debate best methods as scores fall

    There are generally two camps: those in favour of the old-school method to lecture kids with a "drill-and-kill" format that preaches practice, and another, ever-growing group that believes a more creative approach is needed to engage students. At a recent event in Toronto, dozens of teachers waited in line to take selfies with math-teaching celebrity Dan Meyer, delaying his keynote talk at the Ontario Association for Mathematics Education conference. Hopefully, he says, the students will struggle.

  • Paul Bernardo applies for day parole in Toronto; families of victims devastated

    Paul Bernardo has applied for day parole in Toronto, though lawyers say he has almost no chance of succeeding. The lawyer for the families of Bernardo's murder victims, 14-year-old Leslie Mahaffy and 15-year-old Kristen French, said Correctional Service Canada sent out a form letter to the families last week advising them of his application. It is Bernardo's right to apply for day parole three years before he is eligible for full parole on his life sentence, but this has left families of both girls devastated, even though they knew this day was coming, said their lawyer Tim Danson.
