  • Young Prince George shuns high-five, low-five from Canada's Trudeau

    Blame it on jet lag or maybe a precocious knowledge that his great-grandmother is Canada's head of state but Britain's 3-year-old Prince George just wasn't going to be charmed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Landing in Canada on Saturday on a weeklong official visit with parents Prince William and Kate Middleton, George, holding his father's hand, ignored Trudeau when he squatted down to the toddler's level to offer a high-five variation, the low-five. Trudeau then switched his palm for a high-five and subsequently offered a handshake, both of which were seemingly rebuffed, creating an awkward moment on the airport tarmac in the western province of British Columbia.

  • Does glucosamine really help joint pain?

    Lots of people take glucosamine to help them with pains in their joints, but is there hard evidence that it improves things, asks Dr Chris van Tulleken. Of all the supplements on the shelves purporting to aid one part of our body or another, the most popular by a long way are those that are supposed to help our joints - and most of those contain glucosamine. In 2014 the world bought over 29,000 tons of the stuff. Pretty impressive considering its benefits in clinical trials remain controversial. So what's going on? Why do so many people swear by it? Glucosamine is certainly important in our bodies - it's one of the building blocks of cartilage, ligaments and tendons - all possible causes of pain

  • Tulsa officer late to career, had de-escalation training

    The Tulsa police officer accused of manslaughter in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man took a roundabout path toward her dream job of joining law enforcement, with stops as a convenience store clerk, an Air National Guard member and a teaching assistant. Family members and colleagues say Betty Jo Shelby, 42, was an engaged community member, a churchgoer and cool-headed enough to be tapped as a field-training officer even though she didn't join the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office until 2007 and the city's force until 2011. Despite completing de-escalation training, Shelby "reacted unreasonably" when she fatally shot 40-year-old Terence Crutcher on Sept. 16, according to an affidavit prosecutors filed with the first-degree manslaughter charge.

Addressing a policy forum organized by The Texas Tribune, the Texas senator said Saturday it was "agonizing" making the decision to back Trump, whom he once called a "pathological liar" and "serial philanderer." He denied he caved in to pressure from top Republicans nationally and in his home state, saying he would have faced an outcry no matter what. "Any path we took, if I supported Donald, if I didn't support Donald, the criticism was going to be there," Cruz told a packed auditorium.

With the condos came more renters and now, more and more people using Airbnb. A quick search on Airbnb reveals hundreds of rentals in Liberty Village — including many that go for around $200 a night. That neighbourhood, as well as the waterfront and the Yonge and Church areas, is considered one of the city's "hot spots" when it comes to short-term rentals, according to a recent Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives report.
