    Refugees are leaving Finland by the thousands, in part, because it's too cold. The head of a small travel agency in Helsinki, the country's capital, told Reuters: "Some say they don't like the food here, it's too cold or they don't feel welcome in Finland.

  • A Spanish man didn’t report to work for six years, and no one noticed until he won an award

    It sounds like a “Seinfeld” episode. In 2004, the city council in Cadiz, Spain, put Joaquín García in charge of overseeing construction of a wastewater treatment plant, according to the Daily Telegraph. He visited the office, but finding no work and feeling bullied, he stopped showing up. And no one noticed. For six years. García continued to collect his roughly $41,500 salary until 2010, when an official spotted his name on a list of employees due to receive an award — his for 20 years of service. The official, José Blas Fernández, visited the plant only to discover that no one knew where García was. “They assumed he had been sent back to city hall,” Fernández told the Telegraph. García,

  • Vintage 'snowbugs' still rule parts of Canada's north

    All across the frozen tundra of Northern Canada, giant "snowbugs" continue to roam the land. Of course these bugs don't have legs and antennae — instead they are outfitted with tracks and skis. Rarely seen in the South, snowbugs have long been a common sight in Canada's North. A cross between a van and a snowmobile, "bugs" provide a warm comfortable commute to places you just can't reach by road. Mervin Aubichon hits the gas as his 1956 Bombardier flies across Churchill Lake, near the town of Buffalo Narrows, in northern Saskatchewan.

  • Retro ‘60s Property That Hasn’t Been Touched In 50 Years Up For Sale (12 photos)

    With its psychedelic floral wallpaper, dark wooden panels and retro patterned carpets, it’s easy to see why this home was crowned ‘House of the Year’ at the Ideal Home Show in 1967. And the property hasn’t been touched since - even the kitchen and bathroom fittings haven’t had an update and the unique exterior staircase stands intact. The four-bedroom home in Birmingham is now going under the hammer, and is expected to fetch up to £240,000. Whether the new owners decide to bring it up to date or stick with the vintage style remains to be seen.

  • Canada's hot housing markets can expect some ‘payback’ after boom years: TD

    Several of Canada’s housing markets lost some steam in January, hot on the heels of a new report that warns of a cooling-off period. Or, as Toronto-Dominion Bank put it in a fresh forecast, some “payback” after the exceptional boom years. According to the Teranet-National Bank home price index released today, values across the country dipped 0.1 per cent in January from December, marking the second decline in a row. On a year-over-year basis, they were still up 5.9 per cent, which the group called a “quite respectable gain,” albeit the slowest in three months. Prices slipped from December to January in Montreal, the Ottawa region, Calgary, Edmonton, Quebec City, Toronto and Halifax. “The report

  • Canadian dollar strengthens as crude oil prices surge

    By Fergal Smith TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar rose against its U.S. counterpart on Friday as a surge in oil prices supported the risk-sensitive commodity currency, even as solid U.S. retail sales data helped drive broader gains for the greenback.

  • Injuries, roster turnover gives current Maple Leafs an opportunity

    As fans and media muse about salary cap space, free agency and tanking in hopes of landing the No. 1 pick in June's draft, the Toronto Maple Leafs' current roster views the situation from an entirely different perspective. Dealing captain Dion Phaneuf to the rival Ottawa Senators in a massive trade, coupled with a mounting injury list, has left the Leafs with a thin locker-room of journeymen and youngsters, as well as a number of veterans likely to be moved out before the Feb. 29 trade deadline. The Leafs sit last in the NHL's overall standings heading into Monday night's game in Chicago against the Blackhawks, but downed the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 on Saturday night for just their second regulation victory since Jan. 6.
