  • Charlotte Reacts To 'Dancing' Boot

    Charlotte McKinney got booted from "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday, and the elimination stung for more reasons than one. After dancing her rumba with pro partner Keo Motsepe, "DWTS" judge Bruno Tonioli told the model, "Listen my darling, you're never gonna win the Nobel Prize for quantum physics, but you are easy on the eyes," earning boos from the audience. "I do believe it was uncalled for, especially after a week like the last week that we had… and throwing that in there just didn't make sense to me," Charlotte told Access Hollywood's Liz Hernandez after the show, when asked how she felt about Bruno's remark.

  • Report: Tiger Woods' plane spotted at Augusta airport

    There are very few reasons why Tiger Woods would fly to Augusta, Ga. Really, there's probably one: to play at Augusta National Golf Club. Five days later, Woods released a statement saying he would not play competitive golf again until his game was "tournament ready." Woods skipped The Honda Classic in his hometown of Jupiter, Fla., did not qualify for the WGC-Cadillac Championship and chose not to play in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, a tournament he has won eight times. The tea leaves seemed to suggest Woods felt "tournament ready" again as friend Notah Begay III told 120 Sports that the 14-time major winner was "50-50" to play in the Masters -- better than Begay's 1-in-10 characterization when Woods announced his hiatus.

    When server Andrea Mottu was required to wear a bikini top for a Hawaiian-themed event at the Vancouver nightclub where she worked, her boss didn’t expect her to show up in a turtleneck. Dress codes calling on serving staff to wear revealing attire have been a longstanding concern for some in the hospitality industry and drew more attention recently with the development of an Edmonton-based website, F.E.D.U.P. YEG (or Feminist Eatery Database — Undercover Project). The project, created by four University of Alberta students, aims to highlight sexism and other discrimination issues in the food services industry by collecting survey responses from restaurant customers and employees.

  • Borrowers lock in, lenders offer choice in competitive spring housing market

    A CIBC poll, conducted byNielsen, says 57 per cent of Canadians aren’t betting on mortgage rates to fall further and would choose a fixed-rate mortgage if they were to acquire, refinance or renew a mortgage today. The CIBC poll says 30 per cent of respondents would pick a variable-rate mortgage if they were to acquire, refinance or renew a mortgage today, while 11 per cent weren’t sure. "The poll results confirm what many of our clients are telling us, that they don’t expect rates to go any lower and, in today’s housing market, they want the comfort and security of knowing exactly what their mortgage payments will be for the next four or five years," says Barry Gollom, a vice president at CIBC.

  • Man is set to win $1 million should Michigan State cut down NCAA nets

    The odds still aren't all that great, but surely the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino is sweating a potential $1 million payout should Michigan State win the NCAA title a whole lot more than it was a couple weeks ago. In early December, Derek Stevens, who owns a couple hotels himself in downtown Las Vegas, put $20,000 down on 50-to-1 odds from the Golden Nugget that a Spartans team that started the season with a 5-3 record would cut down the nets at the end of the NCAA Tournament, according to ESPN.com. As one member of the Final Four, Michigan State is still only 8-to-1 to win the title, if only because the seventh-seeded Spartans must upset a pair of No. 1 seeds to do so — starting with Duke on Saturday, followed by Kentucky or Wisconsin two nights later.

  • Ottawa man meets online classifieds buyers at police station

    An Ottawa man is asking potential buyers to meet him at the police station when selling high-priced items to strangers on classified websites, such as Kijiji and Craigslist. Vladimir Kostine said he started taking extra precautions with his expensive sale items, like his smartphone, after the charred remains of an Ancaster, Ont. man who was trying to sell his truck online were found in 2013. Kostine said he has had fewer responses to ads asking to meet at the police station — and he believes that means his extra precautions are having the desired effect.

  • Future shop severance packages not up to snuff, says lawyer

    First Target said it would take a mulligan on the 133 stores it had opened in Canada, and then Future Shop welcomes its employees to work this past Saturday with notices telling 1,500 of them they’re out of a job. Now a group of workers turfed out by Best Buy’s decision to shut down its Future Shop stores say the severance cheques they were offered are too low, and not in line with Canadian labour practices. “What I discovered pretty much consistently amongst all the people that I’ve spoken to is that the offers were completely inadequate,” says Lior Samfiru, a labour lawyer retained to negotiate for higher packages for a number of former employees.

"It would be an entity onto itself and the way hospices generally work, they would probably work with linkages with the regular health care system," Cole said.
