  • A 9-Year-Old With a Pacemaker Was Held Up at the Airport by 18 TSA Agents

    Nine-year-old Chille always goes through alternate screening at the airport because a pacemaker implanted in his heart doesn't allow for him to go through metal detectors. However, last week at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, AZ, Chille was traveling with his mom, Ali Bergman, when he was refused security screening because TSA allegedly told the pair, "Some terrorist plots use children with pacemakers." Upon arriving at the airport, Bergman, Chille's scooter, and their four bags passed through security, and instead of the "typical smile and use of the other machine or swiping his hands for explosives," Chille was surrounded by no less than 18 TSA agents and police officers.

  • Andrew Coyne: It’s not the 1970s, let’s not play inflationary game again

    It would appear humanity is doomed to repeat the same errors every 30 or 40 years, not because people do not learn from their mistakes but because those who do grow old and die, giving way to a generation with no memory of what they endured. There are exceptions. The response to the financial crisis, when policy-makers flooded their economies with money while keeping trade open — in contrast to the disastrous policies pursued in the 1930s — is an encouraging counter-example. But we should remember that the success of monetary policy, then and since, was achieved in the face of a quite hysterical insistence in certain quarters that central banks had “run out of bullets” — that only fiscal policy

  • Canada's ad industry cracking down on paid endorsements on social media

The new rules, expected to be implemented by early 2017, will require such individuals to disclose whether they've received payment — either in the form of cash, free products or other considerations — in exchange for the mention.
