  • Canadian surgeons urge people to throw out bristle BBQ brushes

    Canadian surgeons are urging people to throw out wire-bristled barbecue brushes because none of them have figured out a surefire way of removing the wires when they get stuck in people's throats. The thin, sharp wires can come off the brushes, attach to barbecue grills and cling to food without being noticed. If it's swallowed it can cause damage to the throat and epiglottis, which is the flap of cartilage that covers the opening of the windpipe when swallowing.

  • ‘Big Lobi,’ a giant lobster purchased for $270 and set free, found dead two days later

    CHATHAM, Mass. — A lobster bought from a Massachusetts fish market for $270 and set free by twin brothers who didn’t want it to become someone’s dinner has apparently died. Chris and David Schmidt, of New Jersey, bought the 10-kilogram lobster and released it Thursday in the waters off Chatham. They dubbed the crustacean Big Lobi after Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz, whose nickname is Big Papi. The Cape Cod Times reports that a local retiree found a dead 10-kilogram lobster in the same area on Saturday. Experts say it appears to be the same one. The director of marine fisheries research at the Center for Coastal Studies says lobsters live in deep, cold water, and the shallows where Big Lobi

  • Bella Hadid Looks Like She's Wearing a Classic Leather Jacket, but Wait Until You See the Back

    When Bella Hadid opted for a night out with her sister Gigi, we knew to expect some sexy outfits. The model sisters are both fans of crop tops, sheer styles, and plunging necklines, and it was definitely more of the like when the two stepped out at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood. Gigi showed off her toned stomach in a teeny tiny off-the-shoulder shirt. Bella's black top was low-cut and she paired it with lace-up pants. But with all that statement-making style going on, it was actually a simple leather jacket — the one that Bella had draped across her shoulders — that truly caught our eyes. From the front, the piece looked pretty average — the typical topper that the fashion crowd gravitates toward.

  • The creators of Pokémon Go say some players were accidentally attacking their servers

    When Niantic, the developers of smartphone sensation Pokémon Go, started to ban cheaters from the game, some users who had thought that they were always playing by the rules were surprised to find themselves banned. In a new blog post, Niantic explains exactly what happened and why, along with a promise to remove the bans for the users in question. Long story short: Some players were using certain unauthorized, fan-made apps to find nearby Pokémon in Pokémon Go — apps that actually had an effect similar to a coordinated attack on the Pokémon Go servers, whether or not the players knew it. Some players may not have realized that some add-on map apps do more than just show you nearby Pokémon.

  • Canada house prices to rise sharply on cheap money, speculation

    By Anu Bararia BENGALURU (Reuters) - The sharp acceleration in Canadian home prices shows no sign of abating this year, though economists expect the pace will be reined in by high household debt and a growing lack of affordability, a Reuters poll found. Foreign wealth, cheap borrowing costs and bets that urban centers Vancouver and Toronto will remain profitable will likely support the Canadian property market over the next few years. House prices are forecast to rise 10 percent in 2016, almost double the pace expected in May's survey, and the fastest since polling for 2016 began two years ago, according to the poll of over 20 forecasters.

  • This Teacher's New Homework Policy Is Going Viral For All of the Right Reasons

    When a teacher addresses their homework policy for the year, their expectations aren't usually met with smiling faces. The progressive second grade teacher at Godley Elementary School in Godley, TX, sent out a letter to parents explaining that her students will not be given specific assignments to complete at home — homework will only consist of what students did not finish during the school day. According to studies, as well as an article from the Washington Post, there hasn't been any research that's found any benefit to assigning homework of any kind — or of any amount — to elementary school students. As a mom and as a teacher, [I found that] a lot of homework just wasn't necessary, and it wasn't the right thing for my students," Young told POPSUGAR.
