  • Boston Marathon bomber wipes away tears as his Russian aunt breaks down on the witness stand

    For the first time since his trial began four months ago, Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev dropped his blank, impassive demeanour and showed emotion as his Russian aunt sobbed uncontrollably and had to leave the witness stand. Tsarnaev, 21, grabbed a tissue and repeatedly dabbed his eyes and cheeks while his aunt became so upset that she was unable to testify on his behalf as his lawyers try to persuade a federal jury to spare his life. Tsarnaev had maintained an uninterested expression since his trial began in January, most of the time staring straight ahead and only occasionally glancing over at witnesses, including people who lost loved ones in the 2013 bombing.

  • Born under gender-equal succession rules, but life won't be a fairytale for UK's new princess

    William and Kate's new daughter is the first British princess who won't face royal discrimination because she's a girl, but that doesn't mean her life will be a fairy tale. Thanks to a change in the centuries-old rules of royal succession, if Princess Charlotte has a younger brother, he won't overtake her in line to the throne. The experience of Kate — and, even more, of the baby's late grandmother, Princess Diana — suggests the level of interest the princess can expect.

In the back half of April, the Canadian dollar started to gain momentum, closing out the month around $0.83.
