  • My secret three-year affair with Sex Bomb Tom Jones - aided by his son

    Because today, as a coach in the hit television series The Voice alongside Rita Ora and Will.i.am, and with a new world tour beginning in June, Tom Jones’s distinctive baritone and charismatic appeal have won him a whole new generation of fans. Indeed, since transforming himself from a penniless miner’s son from the Valleys into a £190 million music legend thanks to classics such as It’s Not Unusual, Delilah and The Green, Green Grass of Home, Sir Tom, now 74, has famously stayed firmly married to his childhood sweetheart Linda, whom he married when both were 16.

  • UK government would oppose any takeover of BP: FT

    The message follows the $70 billion deal to acquire rival producer BG by oil major Royal Dutch Shell , which has sparked speculation of a larger wave of consolidation similar to the one at the end of 1990s during another oil price decline. British officials have said the government would be "skeptical" about any takeover - even if it involves Royal Dutch Shell - because it wants the country to have two big global oil companies, the FT reported. Officials acknowledge the government has few formal powers to block a bid, but a senior City figure briefed on government thinking said making its opposition so clear may deter any foreign bidder from offering a bid, the FT reported.

  • TFSA, RRSP and RRIF rule changes miss the mark

    Now if it would just address the real flaws in Canada’s retirement system. Last week’s federal budget showered goodies on the grey-haired set, ranging from more time for seniors to tap their registered retirement income funds (RRIFs) to vastly expanded limits on contributions to tax-free savings accounts (TFSAs). Neither move addresses what is arguably the most important goal of the retirement system – ensuring all Canadians over 65 enjoy a decent standard of living. Canada has been a world leader in this regard and our old-age poverty rate remains among the 10 lowest in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.

  • Winners, losers in Sidney Crosby’s decision to play in IIHF worlds

    It’s a bit of a surprise, given that Crosby hasn’t appeared in one since 2006 and given that Team Canada has said it wanted to go younger. But, um, we imagine they’ll make an exception here. One year before the World Cup, Sid will skate with some of Canada’s best and brightest in a tournament the NHL is trying to usurp with its own international ventures.

  • Why the US won't have OPEC to kick around in 2016

    As candidates for the 2016 U.S. general election gear up for a White House run, one villain of recent campaign cycles will be conspicuously absent: the cartel known as OPEC. With the U.S. oil boom helping the world's largest economy churn out more than 9 million barrels per day (bpd), its highest in about three decades and up 80 percent since 2008, energy prices appear to be sidelined as political theater.

  • Girl who battled cancer dismissed from school

    A school in Michigan has received an F from the parents of a 12-year-old girl who was dismissed for missing classes while recovering from cancer treatment. WWMT-TV reports that Rose McGrath, of Battle Creek, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic two years back. Rose's parents told WWMT that a letter from the school notified them that Rose had been dismissed because she could not meet academic or attendance standards. "These were extraordinary circumstances, but so many accommodations were made we felt eventually it became a point where we really had to help Rose, by being able to make sure that she was getting the assistance that she needed and to learn," Father John Fleckenstein, a spokesman for Battle Creek Area Catholic Schoolsm told the station.

    The billionaire co-founder of Tim Hortons is on the receiving end of a civil suit alleging he sexually assaulted his sometime lover four years ago, The Canadian Press has learned. The action against Ron Joyce, who claims he's the victim of a "blatant" extortion attempt, predates an unrelated but similar lawsuit filed earlier this year by another woman, who alleges his son, Steven Joyce, assaulted her aboard his megayacht in Florida in an incident he says was consensual. The Toronto woman says she has audio recordings of conversations with him in which he admits to assaulting her, according to her statement of claim.

  • Oil price shock soon to be positive overall for Canada: Poloz

    Canada's economy will start to show more positive than negative effects from the drop in oil prices from the second quarter onwards, Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz said on Friday. The Bank of Canada kept interest rates on hold last week after a surprise 25-basis-point cut in January, and markets have unwound bets on a further cut this year as prices for oil, a major Canadian export, stabilize. Poloz said the drop in oil prices had been a "significant shock" for the Canadian economy, with the impact ranging from canceled investments to job layoffs and deferred purchasing decisions.

    Expansion, concussions and finances were just a few of the items NHL commissioner Gary Bettman discussed while in Ottawa on Sunday night. Bettman was in town to watch Game 6 between the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens.

  • Here's a shirtless Darko Milicic singing and giving beer to his tattoos

    When last we checked in with Darko Milicic, the former No. 2 overall pick had decided to pursue an invigorating and rewarding second career as a professional kickboxer. Yep, that's a shirtless Darko Milicic pounding beers and heartily singing a "patriotic/pump-up-our-country song" alongside Baja Mali Knindža, a Bosnian Serb singer "often described as part of the turbo folk scene" (duh). Ever a sharing sort (let us never forget David Kahn's Chris Webber comparisons!) Milicic then decides to go halfsies on his brew with the two faces tattooed on his midsection — on the left, Momčilo Đujić, and on the right, Nikola Kalabić, two leaders in the Serbian Chetnik movement during World War II, which is some pretty polarizing artwork — as a bunch of no-doubt-stone-sober fellow singers look on and cheer in celebration.
