To keep U.S. dollars in the country, the government has tightened imports, meaning fewer new cars and summer dresses. For the nearly third of Egyptians living in poverty,

Ottawa police say they are reviewing exactly what happened when a social media post about the murders of women this year was edited to remove the word "femicide." On Sept. 16, Ottawa police posted a bulletin about five recent homicides of women and how they shared similarities. "The women were all victims of femicide," the bulletin read. "In each case, men are facing charges." Then minutes later, the post was once again published on the force's social media feeds, but this time, the word "femici
On Monday, in what seems like a scene out of a science fiction movie, NASA will slam a spacecraft into a distant asteroid to see whether it can nudge its orbit — all in an effort to test a way to protect Earth from any potential future threats. The good news is that there's no need to panic: The asteroid, which is part of a binary — or two-bodied — system, is not a threat to our planet, and there are no known ones that are headed our way for at least the next 100 years. However, space agencies l
He's only been riding his motorcycle for a few months, but Marshall McNaughton has already seen how dangerous it can be. "A lot of people are distracted and are just trying to go to work," he says. "They're not thinking about the big picture. They just look at you as an object.

There is growing dissent on the streets of Moscow where at least 1,500 protesters have been arrested as the Kremlin orchestrates what the west has labelled “sham referendums” in rebel-held regions of Ukraine.

After a tornado ripped through Bruce Pit off-leash dog park in 2018 the woodland is lush with new growth, and it provides a good example of what derecho-ravaged forests on other National Capital Commission (NCC) land will likely look like in a few years. But not all of the work done in Bruce Pit these last four years, or in NCC-owned Pine Grove and Pinhey Forest after the derecho in May, are ecological best practices, according to an urban forestry expert with the University of British Columbia.
