If you're looking for the perfect gift for a student, this Chromebook is on sale for under $80. It contains 4 GB of memory, 32 GB of storage and a powerful processor. One particularly forward-thinking feature — especially if your teen is accident-prone — is that it's spill-resistant with reinforced corners, so a fall off a desk or a splash from a drink shall do no harm. Here's a testimonial from a very satisfied customer: "I purchased this for my 12-year-old to be able to work on his reading and math skills through his school portal, so storage wasn't an issue. We did need a webcam for school online meetings, and this worked flawlessly. For our needs it's perfect, and so is the price point. This Chromebook isn't meant for heavy gaming or downloads, or for massive storage. But if you need just something to do research and a bit of schoolwork and to connect with friends and family or to check and answer emails, this is by far the best one I've found."
Get ahead of the holiday rush by planning for the guest invasion now. The firm construction and attached pillows on this queen-size air mattress allow for weightless sleep with minimal air loss throughout the night. The anti-microbial treatment resists odor, mold and mildew and the built-in pump will save you from a late night Walmart run because you can't find one when it's time for bed. It also blows up quickly, taking only four minutes to reach its final form.
These parents put it to the test: "We took it with us when we went to visit our daughter. It has a built-in pump to blow it up, so no need to have or buy an air pump. We slept on it for five nights and didn't have any issues of it sagging or losing air. It also sits high enough to easily get out out of bed without issues."
This cookware set makes an excellent gift for any amateur chefs on your list and, starting today, it's a special buy at just $35 (Typically, it sells for $50 at other major retailers). With 11 pieces in all (two pots, two pans, corresponding lids and five utensils),you're looking at just over $3 per piece. The aqua color adds a pretty pop for any kitchen and will look great for those Instagram humblebrags of their newest culinary creation. Farberware is also a brand you can trust with its nonstick coating and even heat distribution (thanks to its aluminum construction). Bonus: It's all dishwasher-safe.
We're calling it: this Paw Patrol Truck will be a hit for the holidays. Al and his logging truck are the newest members of the Paw Patrol rescue squad, and his truck features a rising control pod with an extendable logging crane and a locking claw mechanism. Al can be put in the driver's seat as well as be the crane operator — he's a multitalented pup. Hear it from the kids who have already taken the toy for a spin: "We love that it is universal. We have three girls in the family, and they were all fighting for who was going to play with it first." Another parent said, "This Paw Patrol Al Deluxe Big Truck was a fun new addition to our toy adventure play! It features a new dog, and it was very fun to move the claw arm of the truck and pick up various objects and put them into the truck or take them out of the truck."
This current special buy of just $20 is half the price (if not more) of the same toy purchased elsewhere. So delight the little ones on your list and save a bundle.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes was convicted Tuesday of seditious conspiracy for a violent plot to overturn President Joe Biden’s election, handing the Justice Department a major victory in its massive prosecution of the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection. A Washington, D.C., jury found Rhodes guilty of sedition after three days of deliberations in the nearly two-month-long trial that showcased the far-right extremist group’s efforts to keep Republican Donald Trump in the White Ho
Windsor police say a 26-year-old Windsor man is wanted on a first-degree murder charge in relation to a fatal shooting that happened Monday. The shooting took place in the 800 block of Hanna Street East near Marentette Avenue, and the 26-year-old male victim was transported to hospital on Monday just before 6 p.m., police tweeted. Shortly after, police tweeted the victim died from his wounds. The victim's name has not been released. On Tuesday, police tweeted they have identified a suspect who i
FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried, once hailed as the 'King of Crypto,' spoke on video for the first time since the sudden collapse of his cryptocurrency exchange company, pushing back against allegations of fraud.
Police are warning people in the Halifax Regional Municipality about a scam targeting seniors that has already stolen thousands of dollars from victims. Police say the scam usually starts with a phone call from someone posing as a friend or relative who's been arrested and jailed. "And then, at that point, they get on the phone with someone else, maybe a lawyer or whatever who they pretend to be, in order to get them to pay money to have their loved one released from custody," Const. John MacLeo
NEW YORK (AP) — A massive immersive experience celebrating Bob Marley is heading for its U.S. premiere early next year, complete with photographs, lots of music and even a pair of the reggae giant's footwear. The multi-room exhibit “Bob Marley: One Love Experience” will open in Los Angeles on Jan. 27 at Ovation Hollywood, following runs in London and Toronto. The 15,000-square foot (1,393-square meter) experience includes previously unseen photographs, concert videos, lyric sheets, rare memorabi
TOKYO (AP) — The former head of a Japan-China friendship group who recently returned to Japan from six years in a Beijing prison for what he said were false spying charges said he still hopes to see China become a global leader but with better treatment of human rights. Hideji Suzuki, former president of the Japan-China Youth Exchange Association, said he devoted himself to promoting friendship between the two countries and visited China more than 200 times since the 1980s. He said he was seized
WASHINGTON (AP) — The seditious conspiracy convictions of Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and another leader in the far-right extremist group show that jurors are willing to hold accountable not just the rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, but those who schemed to subvert the 2020 election. Tuesday's verdict, while not a total win for the Justice Department, gives momentum to investigators just as the newly named special counsel ramps up his probe into key aspects of the in
Ten-year-old twin sisters Katelyn and Meghan Rogers have been chosen as the 2023 Easter Seals ambassadors for P.E.I. The Grade 5 students at Eliot River School in Cornwall both live with cerebral palsy. The girls will tour Island schools in the new year, and they are bringing their own motto, "Believe in yourself and don't give up." "We both thought of 'don't give up' together and then I thought of 'believe in yourself' and we decided to put them together," said Katelyn. When asked what makes th
BERLIN (AP) — It is time for China to move away from massive lockdowns and toward a more targeted approach to COVID-19, the head of the International Monetary Fund said days after widespread protests broke out, a change that would ease the impact to a world economy already struggling with high inflation, an energy crisis and disrupted food supply. IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva urged a “recalibration” of China's tough “zero-COVID" approach aimed at isolating every case “exactly becau
Ontario Labour Minister Monte McNaughton gave a long-awaited apology Wednesday afternoon to mine workers who were exposed to McIntyre Powder for over three decades and their families. From 1943 to 1979, miners in northern Ontario were forced to breathe in the black ground aluminum dust before they started their shifts. Their employers told them the powder would protect them from the lung disease silicosis, but many of them developed neurological disorders and lung issues years later. In 2020, re
Six years after supermarket cashier Clémence Beaulieu-Patry was stabbed to death at her workplace, a new trial has been ordered for Randy Tshilumba who was found guilty of first-degree murder by a jury. In a judgment rendered on Nov. 28, Quebec's Court of Appeal said the judge had given the jury instructions that were "unduly long, unnecessarily complex, but above all manifestly contradictory and prejudicial." In the 2017 trial, the defence pleaded Tshilumba's actions were prompted by mental hea
OTTAWA — Proposed changes to the Official Languages Act are likely to create more "arbitrary barriers" for Indigenous people hoping to work in federal institutions and advance to higher levels, says the Assembly of First Nations. The national advocacy organization, representing more than 600 First Nations across the country, issued its warning to a parliamentary committee that is studying amendments to the law. Last spring, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government introduced plans to reform th
Elizabeth Crowe and her mother, Anne Crowe, walk across their family dairy farm in Burntcoat, N.S., to a large red barn in the cold November sunshine. At 37, the younger Crowe hopes to one day buy the family farm and stay in the industry. But the Municipality of East Hants has proposed new zoning laws that would designate much of the Crowes' land, and many others along the Minas Basin, as agricultural reserve. That would protect the lands for years to come by restricting its use for farming only
Montreal police are investigating after a man was found shot dead in a residential neighbourhood in Dorval late Tuesday night. According to police, someone called 911 just before 11 p.m., reporting a man lying on the ground near the corner of Mimosa Ave. and Carson Ave. When police arrived at the scene, they found the victim, estimated to be in his 20s. Police say he had gunshot wounds to the upper body and his death was declared at the scene. According to police, there are no suspects or arrest
Both city officials and the companies that built Ottawa's troubled Confederation Line made "egregious" errors during the construction and testing of the $2.1-billion LRT — errors that raise questions about whether the city is fit to oversee such massive infrastructure projects, according to the final report from the Ottawa Light Rail Transit Public Inquiry. The city and Rideau Transit Group (RTG), which includes SNC-Lavalin, ACS Infrastructure and Ellis Don, lost sight of the public interest in
