One of the organizers of a Memorial University conference held at a luxury hotel says the event was costly, but it wasn't as pricey as it appeared and contributed to a valuable university partnership. In November 2021, MUN's president chaired a four-day Arctic Forum at the Fogo Island Inn, with costs totalling more than $100,000. A university spokesperson said $56,657 of that cost came from university coffers, while federal sources covered $24,453 and the rest came from attendees. It was the thi

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The U.S. population center is on track this decade to take a southern swerve for the first time in history, and it's because of people like Owen Glick, who moved from California to Florida more than a year ago. Last year, the South outgrew other U.S. regions by well over 1 million people through births outpacing deaths and domestic and international migration, according to population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau. The Northeast and Midwest lost residents, and the Wes

Environmentalists in Nova Scotia have long warned of the dangers invasive species of plants and animals can pose to native ecosystems. The European starling is a case in point, according to Kristen Noel, council supervisor at the Nova Scotia Invasive Species Council.

Predatory aquatic species like the chain pickerel and smallmouth bass wer
MILAN (AP) — AC Milan’s woeful start to the year went from bad to worse on Sunday, potentially putting title-winning coach Stefano Pioli’s job at risk.
