Packed with raw power
Need more power? Need more speed? This Apple MacBook Pro model is the tech company’s quickest, brawniest laptop to date — thanks to the new M1 chip and the latest version of the macOS Big Sur operating system. It also has an insane battery life of up to 20 hours per charge. Good luck trying to get that kind of longevity with any other laptop.
"I primarily use my MacBook Pro for music production and performance," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "The M1 chip blows the Intel chips out of the water in terms of loading speed, battery life and ability to handle large Logic Pro projects with dozens of tracks, plugins, software instruments and live recordings. Battery life has also seen a significant improvement over my 2020 Intel machine."
When U.S. Catholic bishops convene virtually for a national meeting Wednesday, they will be divided ideologically as well as physically. They’re split over whether to press ahead with an initiative that could — at least implicitly — rebuke President Joe Biden for receiving Communion while supporting abortion rights. For a body that strives to appear unified and fraternal, it’s a highly contentious issue, testing the extent to which the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops can work constructively
OTTAWA — A new study in England suggests the Pfizer-BioNTech and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines are extremely good at keeping people from ending up in the hospital with COVID-19, even after just one dose. Public Health England says it looked at the records of 14,000 people with confirmed cases of COVID-19 due to the Delta variant between April 12 and June 4. It found two doses of either vaccine were more than 90 per cent effective at keeping people out of the hospital. After one dose, Pfizer was 94
TOKYO (AP) — Until recently, the location of executed wartime Japanese Prime Minister Hideki Tojo's remains was one of World War II's biggest mysteries in the nation he once led. Now, a Japanese university professor has revealed declassified U.S. military documents that appear to hold the answer. The documents show the cremated ashes of Tojo, one of the masterminds of the Pearl Harbor attack, were scattered from a U.S. Army aircraft over the Pacific Ocean about 30 miles (50 kilometers) east of Y
The commander of the Royal Canadian Navy has publicly apologized for golfing with former top soldier, retired general Jonathan Vance, who is under a military police investigation over allegations of inappropriate behaviour with female subordinates. Vice-Admiral Craig Baines issued a written statement Sunday night addressed to all military members and national defence public servants saying he was sorry for his conduct. Baines confirmed he golfed with Vance and military's second-in-command, Lt.-G
This story is part of Amy Bell's Parental Guidance column, which airs on CBC Radio One's The Early Edition. When you have a child, anxiety is part of the deal. From those early days of "are they breathing?" to the sleepless nights spent wondering if they'll come home from their teenage adventures, your worry comes in many shapes. When the provincial guidelines were announced for the gradual easing of restrictions this summer, I was elated. For about three hours. But that quickly morphed into me
Mikey and Ellie the Great Danes were doing so much better with their newspaper delivery when the Tampa Bay Times was delivered seven days a week. With delivery only on Sunday and Wednesday, their delivery skills have become a bit hit and miss....or hit and run. Watch and laugh as Mikey and Ellie argue about who is not going to delivery Sunday's Paper.
OTTAWA — Canada is poised to receive around 9.5 million COVID-19 vaccine doses this week thanks to a massive infusion of shots from Moderna. The federal government says the Massachusetts-based pharmaceutical firm will deliver a total of 7.1 million jabs in two separate shipments this week. The first shipment of 2.9 million doses is scheduled to arrive and be sent to provinces in the middle of the week.

WOLSELEY, Sask. — A province mourned the loss of a slain RCMP officer on Sunday, remembering the Mountie as a compassionate fixture of his rural Saskatchewan community. Const. Shelby Patton, 26, died Saturday morning after he stopped a suspected stolen truck in the small town of Wolseley, Sask., east of Regina. He was hit by the truck while outside of his police vehicle, RCMP said. The truck took off and Patton died at the scene. Two hours later a man and a woman were arrested in a field outside
Some Toronto residents lined up to get their second shot this weekend as a number of pop-up clinics offered second doses in Scarborough. The Scarborough Health Network (SHN) and Scarborough Ontario Health Team partners expanded their vaccine program for four postal codes identified as Delta variant hot spots. Anyone 12 and older who lives, works, or goes to school in M1B, M1G, M1J, or M1S is eligible for a second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech at the Scarborough pop-up clinics, provided they received t
BRUSSELS (AP) — NATO leaders on Monday will expand the use of their all for one, one for all, collective defense clause to include attacks in space, the military organization’s top civilian official said. Article 5 of NATO’s founding treaty states that attack on any one of the 30 allies will be considered an attack on them all. So far, it’s only applied to more traditional military attacks on land, sea, or in the air, and more recently in cyberspace. “I think it is important (with) our Article 5
Edmonton Police are investigating a report that a Somali Canadian woman who was wearing a hijab was attacked Friday night, the latest in a series of attacks on Black and racialized Muslim women in recent months. Jibril Ibrahim, president of the Somali Canadian Cultural Society (SCCS), said the Edmonton woman who is in her 50s, was grabbed by her neck and pushed down to the sidewalk by an unknown person while she was out for a walk near Edmonton's Northmount neighbourhood at about 9 p.m. "She was
MOSCOW (Reuters) -Jailed Belarusian journalist Roman Protasevich appeared at a news conference in Minsk on Monday saying he felt fine and had not been beaten, in what the opposition said was another public appearance made under duress. Protasevich sat alongside four officials, two of whom were in uniform, saying he had not been made to cooperate with the authorities and that he was in good health after being arrested last month when his Ryanair flight was forced to land in Minsk. Protasevich has made several appearances since his plane was forced to land in Minsk while on a May 23 flight from Greece to Lithuania via Belarusian air space.
An Alberta man is canoeing across the prairies to raise money and awareness for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). David Hatto, 78, started his 1,450 km journey down the North Saskatchewan River from Rocky Mountain House, Alta. on June 2. On Saturday, he reached Edmonton and made camp. The effort is Hatto's way of honouring his granddaughter Hazel, who died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) seven years ago. His daughter-in-law later started Hazel's Heroes as a way to help grieving mothers

MANILA/WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The Philippines has again suspended a decision to scrap a crucial agreement governing the U.S. troop presence in the country, its foreign minister said on Monday, amid continuing maritime pressure from China. The Pentagon welcomed the announcement from Manila - the third suspension of the decision covering the two-decade-old Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) that had been due to expire in August - but analysts said there would be disappointment in both countries that it was not renewed. Philippine Foreign Minister Teodoro Locsin said the suspension would be for a further six months while President Rodrigo Duterte "studies, and both sides further address his concerns regarding, particular aspects of the agreement".

Black community members say they don't feel much has changed in the region, more than a year after large Black Lives Matter protests landed in Windsor. Leslie McCurdy, acting chair of the Black Council of Windsor-Essex, said she feels interest in the issue has waned. "White people can get tired of it and leave it alone. Black people wake up with it everyday and face it," McCurdy said. About 12 months after back-to-back BLM protests on Windsor's Riverfront — one was a BLM balloon memorial that fo
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — The endangered Sumatran Titan arum, a giant foul-smelling blossom also known as the corpse flower, went into a rare, short bloom at a botanical garden in Warsaw, drawing crowds who waited for hours to see it. The extraordinary flower, which emits a dead-body odor to attract pollinating insects that feed on flesh, bloomed Sunday. It was already withering early Monday. Those wishing to avoid the smell and crowds could watch it on live video from the Warsaw University Botanica
OTTAWA — Jenica Atwin has adjusted her position on Israel to align with the governing Liberal party she joined just four days ago. The Fredericton MP left the Greens on Thursday after openly criticizing party leader Annamie Paul's call for de-escalation of the recent deadly hostilities between Israel and Palestinians. Atwin had said she stood with Palestine and maintained there were "no two sides to this conflict, only human rights abuses" by Israel, which she accused of pursuing a policy of apa
Security officials under NATO command have approached Qatar to secure a base that can be used to train Afghan special forces as part of a strategic commitment after foreign forces withdraw from Afghanistan, three senior Western officials said. After two decades of war, forces from 36 countries involved in NATO's Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan are set to pull out of the country in coordination with a U.S. troop withdrawal by Sept. 11. "We are holding talks to earmark a base in Qatar to create an exclusive training ground for senior members of the Afghan forces," said a senior Western security official in Kabul.
