At the very least, sluggers Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion are expected to receive qualifying offers from the Blue Jays. "What I can tell you is that we're trying to win and we're going to continue to try to win," Atkins said. Extending a qualifying offer — worth US$17.2 million — ensures that the Blue Jays would receive compensation if a player signs with another team as a free agent.

Philippine anti-narcotics officers gunned down a town mayor and nine of his men in a clash Friday in one of the bloodiest operations since President Rodrigo Duterte launched a crackdown on illegal drugs. Mayor Samsudin Dimaukom of Datu Saudi Ampatuan town, who was killed with the nine others, has been publicly named by Duterte among many politicians he accused of involvement in illegal drugs as part of a shame campaign. In August, Duterte read out the names of more than 150 officials allegedly linked to illegal drugs.

The age of the waters was first identified by scientists in 2013, reports the National Post, when researchers ran tests in a mine near Timmins, Ont. and discovered that the water had been isolated from the earth’s surface for up to 2.7 billion years. This discovery suggests that the waters may contain organisms that, although not technically alien to Earth, could be similar to what scientists hope to one day find on Mars. The research team, made up of scientists from University of Alberta and McGill University, found that the waters contained far less of the element sulphur than was expected.
Princess Aiko of Japan hasn't been in school for a month, and Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko's granddaughter's extended absence is due to poor health.

Adam Capay, 23, of Lac Seul First Nation is awaiting trial after being charged with murder in the death of another inmate in 2012.

It's been an unprecedented campaign, and many questions remain about what a new administration will look like — including what a Trump or Clinton presidency could mean for Alberta and Canada. A panel of experts will debate the possible outcomes Wednesday night at the Calgary Petroleum Club. The Calgary Eyeopener caught up with one of the speakers, Maryscott (Scotty) Greenwood, ahead of the talk.
Cranberry capsules didn't prevent or cure urinary infections in nursing home residents in a study challenging persistent unproven claims to the contrary. The research adds to decades of conflicting evidence on whether cranberries in any form can prevent extremely common bacterial infections, especially in women. Many studies suggesting a benefit were based on weak science, but that hasn't stopped marketers and even some health care providers from recommending cranberry juice or capsules as an inexpensive way to avoid these uncomfortable and potentially risky infections.
Matt LeBlanc joined The Late Late Show With James Corden to promote his new sitcom, Man With a Plan. But as so often happens, the conversation turned to Friends. Lady Gaga was performing with Reggie Watts and the band, and when it came to the time in the show when Watts usually asks a guest an unusual question, Gaga took the mic and asked LeBlanc a question that’s been plaguing society for two decades.
Instead, the somewhat surprising revelation from a number of reputable sources was that the Calgary Flames may or may not be shopping Dougie Hamilton started to percolate over the weekend. The idea here is that Calgary may no longer enamored of their young defender, less a year and a half after giving him six years at $5.75 million against the cap. It would certainly be an interesting wrinkle in this early season, and there is some foundation for the rumors in terms of how Hamilton is used, and has been for some time.
What's better than one Smith? Five of them. One of Hollywood's most beloved families hit the red carpet at the 26th annual Environmental Media Awards on Saturday in L.A., where they were later joined like major stars like Nicole Richie, Shailene Woodley, and more. Stepping onto the green carpet like the proud parents that they are, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith arrived hand in hand looking as happy as ever. The star couple shone, with Pinkett Smith rocking an all-white suit with a beige top and matching ankle-strap heels while Will kept it dapper in a navy suit. Their children, 18-year-old son Jaden and 15-year-old daughter Willow, as well as Will's 23-year-old son Trey (from a previous marriage) also turned out in sleek looks for the evening. So what was the entire family on hand for? Jaden received the Male EMA Futures Award for his honorable work in making the environment a priority. In his acceptance speech, the young actor thanked Woodley, his "favorite actress in the world" and fellow 2016 Futures Award winner, for her contributions. He also revealed how his passion for the environment began at age 10, for which he expressed appreciation for his family--specifically, his parents--for their support.

Jaden, who rocked a floral coat with a "Just Water" T-shirt (he co-founded the sustainable water bottle company) and jeans, made sure to hug it out with all of his loved ones. Willow, dressed in a sporty ensemble, took a moment to pose with her older brother, too. See more of their too-cute family gathering below--and cue the awws!

In a notice of civil claim, Mei Han claims an acquaintance who owned a home opposite York House offered to broker an "alternative arrangement" which would see Han buy the property in order to lend or lease it to the school. As a quid pro quo, Han claims the acquaintance — Lili Song — told her Han's daughter Olivia would get a much-coveted spot in York's Grade 4 class. "Lili never discussed with York House, or its official or representative, with regard to the alternative arrangement, and York House never agreed to same," the notice of claim says.

Abu Sayyaf pocketed at least 353 million pesos ($7.3 million) from ransom kidnappings in the first six months of the year and have turned to abductions of foreign tugboat crewmen as military offensives restricted the militants' mobility, a confidential Philippine government report said. The joint military and police threat assessment report seen by The Associated Press on Thursday said the offensives have reduced the number of Abu Sayyaf fighters slightly, although the group remains capable of launching terrorist attacks. Government offensives have reduced the number of militants to 481 in the first half of the year from 506 in the same period last year but they managed to carry out 32 bombings in that time — a 68 per cent increase — in attempts to distract the military assaults, the report said.
As unthinkable as the alleged crimes of Elizabeth Wettlaufer may be, the Woodstock, Ontario nurse is not alone as a health care professional accused of murdering multiple patients. Criminal history includes several high-profile cases of so-called health-care killers — doctors, nurses and other health care workers who were able to commit murder over an extended period of time thanks to their professional power and their patients' vulnerability. American nurse Donald Harvey is believed to have murdered up to 57 hospital patients over 17 years in the 1970s and 80s.
