Attention, shoppers: Amazon has slashed prices on a pair of sneakers that you definitely don't want to miss. They're called the Doussprt Women's Walking Shoes, they start at just $29 (down from $60) and they will make your feet very happy! These shoes have earned nearly 21,000 five-star reviews from fans who rave about their comfort and strength.
More important: Bonafide foot doctors give them the thumbs-up. “Stability, or ‘support,’ is probably the most important quality of a sneaker or any other shoe that someone will wear if they are to be on their feet for more than a few minutes at a time,” Richard H. Graves, DPM, of Sol Foot & Ankle Centers in Longwood, Calif, tells Yahoo Life. “Making the foot stable means that the joints of the foot are in better alignment and the muscles, tendons and ligaments are not having to work as hard. A good shoe will do a lot of that work.”

Land claim settlement agreements can be full of legal jargon and complex writing, but Marlisa Brown said she has an idea of how to make them more accessible. Her policy research paper Reconnecting to Our Relations: The Need for Formal Land Claim and Self-Government Education in the Northwest Territories, looks at the current resources in place aimed at helping people better understand self-government and land claim agreements and gives policy recommendations to further support this.

The City of Edmonton says it's prepared to sell a historic hangar because rehabilitating the 80-year-old building could cost up to $41 million. The fate of Hangar 14 — on the former City Centre Airport lands at Kingsway Avenue at 114th Street — now hangs in the balance, as council's executive committee discussed the option of a sale Wednesday, which was outlined in a facility rehabilitation and investment study. "Hangar 14 requires major rehabilitation work, which should not be deferred beyond f
Dr. Tiffany Brooks's career was sparked by something that happened during her childhood. "Back in elementary school, my mom had a surgery and that got me interested in medicine ... looking up YouTube videos all the time, learning what it was all about," she said. Years later, that curiosity led to Brooks graduating from Dalhousie University's school of medicine in May. She's starting her residency in family medicine this month. Brooks is the first person to become a medical doctor from Sitansisk
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California will not consider amending its constitution to eliminate indentured servitude as a possible punishment for crime after Gov.

TORONTO — Ontario legislators will return to provincial parliament on Aug. 8. Premier Doug Ford says the legislature will sit for approximately five weeks. The main item on the agenda is debate and voting on the provincial budget that was introduced but not passed before the spring election.

Joy O'Brien says she wasn't quite sure what to expect when she managed to secure a ticket to Dreaming Roots.

She managed to find a ticket for the next performance — and days later, she's still beside herself about what she saw. "I loved every minute of it ... it was so good," she said. Dreaming Roots incorporates dance, music, story-telling, theatre and visual art t

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear an appeal from North Carolina Republicans that could drastically limit state court authority over congressional redistricting, as well as elections for Congress and the presidency. The justices will consider whether state courts, finding violations of their state constitutions, can order changes to federal elections and the once-a-decade redrawing of congressional districts. The case probably will be argued in the fall. The appeal ch

BERLIN (AP) — The German government on Thursday presented plans to make it easier for transgender people to legally change their name and gender, ending decades-old rules that require them to get expert assessments and a court's authorization. Under the planned “self-determination law,” adults would be able to change their first name and legal gender at registry offices without further formalities. The existing “transsexual law,” which took effect in 1981, currently requires individuals to obtai
