  • Huge, once-hated fish now seen as weapon against Asian carp

    It's a toothy giant that can grow longer than a horse and heavier than a refrigerator, a fearsome-looking prehistoric fish that plied U.S. waters from the Gulf of Mexico to Illinois until it disappeared from many states a half-century ago. Persecuted by anglers and deprived of places to spawn, the alligator gar — with a head that resembles an alligator and two rows of needlelike teeth — survived primarily in southern states in the tributaries of Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico after being declared extinct in several states farther north. To many, it was a freak, a "trash fish" that threatened sportfish, something to be exterminated.

  • Developer cuts down 30 mature trees, city says no permit was issued

    Heather Cassels was in disbelief while cycling down Bayview Avenue south of York Mills Road last Thursday when she saw that workers were cutting down a grove of trees near her home. The city said it is investigating after a developer cut down 30 trees, many of which were over 100 years old, on both sides of Bayview Ridge at Bayview Avenue. "I said, 'I can't believe the city would give you a permit to cut down so many trees,'" she told CBC.

  • Snakes prevent grass cutting at Windsor park

    A city park in Windsor, Ont., is overgrown and there's nothing the city can do about it because the park is now home to an endangered species. Fred Francis says the city can't cut the grass at Seven Sisters Park because Butler's gartersnakes call the park home. Being labelled an endangered species in Ontario means the species lives in the wild but is facing imminent extinction or extirpation.

Ralph Lauren and the United States Olympic Committee unveiled the outfits American athletes will wear in next week’s Opening Ceremony on Friday morning and it didn’t take long for some to notice they might be better suited for athletes representing another country. As sports fashion maven Paul Lukas and others pointed out on Twitter, the pattern of the striped t-shirt follows the order of the white, blue and red bars of the Russian flag.

  • Billion-year-old air reveals surprise about oxygen on ancient Earth

    Canadian scientists have found a way to analyze air from the ancient Earth's atmosphere that was trapped in salt crystals nearly a billion years ago. The air, which has been preserved, undisturbed, in tiny pockets in the crystals for about 815 million years, appears to contain 10.9 per cent oxygen — just half the amount in the atmosphere today. "I'm surprised and excited," said Nigel Blamey, a professor of earth sciences at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ont., who co-led the study with fellow Brock geochemist Uwe Brand.
