  • I followed Benjamin Franklin's daily schedule for a week, and the most rewarding part was also the most difficult

    As far as daily routines of historical figures go, Benjamin Franklin's is well documented. The Founding Father's meticulous "scheme" consisted of waking up at 5 a.m. and asking himself, "What good shall I do this day?" He then dove into work, reading, and socializing for the rest of the day, until he retired to bed at 10 p.m., The Atlantic reports. At the end of the night, Franklin asked himself, "What good have I done today?" He was also famous for his "13 virtues," a list of rules and moral guidelines that he created at the age of 20, according to CBS. Each week, he would pick one "virtue" to focus on.

  • Calgary man says he was beaten by four men in unprovoked attack

    After getting brutally beaten by four men — one wielding an aluminum baseball bat — Christopher Darryl is still physically hurt, and his small business is suffering, too. The Silverado man said he was viciously attacked last week by four men who were harassing two of his daughter’s friends. Now, he’s recovering from a severe concussion, a 15 cm gash on his head that required around 30 stitches, a cracked jaw, and a black eye.

  • Knocking on door of suspected drunk driver violated rights, court rules

    A police officer who knocked on the door of a suspected drunk driver six years ago violated the man's charter rights, so he must be found "not guilty," Saskatchewan's highest court says. The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal recently ruled on the case of John Scott Rogers, who was acquitted of impaired driving at provincial court but was later ordered to stand trial again. A provincial court judge initially said knocking on someone's door while looking for evidence can be considered an unconstitutional search, violating charter-protected privacy rights, so the evidence had to be thrown out.

  • Botched execution survivor asks court to halt 2nd try
