These innovative glasses take the concept of a frosted mug and raise it one to keep your beverages nice and chilly, no matter the weather. The BPA-free glasses feature insulated plastic walls filled with a proprietary gel that works as a beer chiller when it's frozen. Simply place your 16-ounce glass in the freezer for two hours and remove it when you're ready to sip ice-cold beer that stays that way 'til the last drop.
Both glasses feature a no-sweat silicone band for an easy, comfortable grip that won't freeze your fingers. A nice perk: These are plastic, so they're easy to tote to summer backyard barbecues, tailgates, the pool and pretty much everywhere else.
The beer glasses get rave reviews from fans. "My fiancé is obsessed with these!" one delighted shopper wrote. "I bought these when my mother came to visit because she would complain about her beer getting warm. (She is a slow drinker so ice cubes would just melt eventually). I looked up frozen cups and this was the first one I saw. It's perfect, keeps beverages ice cold for a long time, freezes fast and is super easy to clean. I'm ordering more."
Another happy customer calls the glasses "essential" if you have a pool or hot tub. "These glasses are perfect for when you want to enjoy a beverage by the pool and do not want any glass nearby," they wrote. "The gel keeps drinks cool, and I've dropped one and had no issues or breaking."
Plenty of others love the sturdy grip that "keeps your fingers from getting too cold."
WASHINGTON (AP) — In a blow to the fight against climate change, the Supreme Court on Thursday limited how the nation’s main anti-air pollution law can be used to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. By a 6-3 vote, with conservatives in the majority, the court said that the Clean Air Act does not give the Environmental Protection Agency broad authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants that contribute to global warming. The court’s ruling could complicate the a
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.

OTTAWA — Thousands of celebrants who flocked to the national capital for Canada Day festivities heard an impassioned appeal for unity on Friday as the prime minister urged them to reclaim the Maple Leaf as a national symbol.

HONG KONG (AP) — Chinese leader Xi Jinping arrived Thursday in Hong Kong to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the British handover of a city that his rule has transformed from a global hub known for its political freedoms to one that is much more tightly controlled by the Communist Party.

Premier Tim Houston says his government turned down a proposed joint venture for the Halifax Infirmary redevelopment because the preference was to have multiple bids. "For me, I think any action by the province to immediately consolidate the bids down to one and make it so that there could only ever be one, I don't think that was in the best interest of Nova Scotians," Houston told reporters in Halifax on Thursday. "I didn't think it was at that time and I wouldn't say that it is now." A spokesp
Dave Lawrence was on his way to a store in uptown Fredericton when he stumbled across a curious scene. A man was stooped over on the sidewalk frantically scooping up what looked like dozens of small snakes, using a tree branch to scoop them into a little red bucket. "I saw what I thought was a snake, because in one of the photos I posted, it's standing up," said Lawrence. "That's when I looked a bit more to my left, more the entrance way to the Hilltop restaurant, and I saw what looked like two
Randy Bachman has performed many times on Canada Day, but the event he played this year is like no other. The former member of the Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive flew to Japan to reclaim a guitar that he's been hunting for decades. "I'm really happy. I'm getting my lost Gretsch guitar back," the 78-year-old rocker told CBC News in a meeting room inside the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo.

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
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York lawmakers began a special legislative session Thursday with the intent of limiting the proliferation of firearms in public after the Supreme Court gutted the state’s century-old handgun licensing law. The state is overhauling its rules for carrying guns after the court decided that ordinary citizens had a right to arm themselves in public for self-defense, something New York had limited mostly to people working in law enforcement or security. New rules being rushed t
MILAN (AP) — Serie A is hailing a change to Italian law that abolishes a three-year limit on contracts for foreign TV rights. The change should also eliminate long delays in formulating contracts. “The new rules will help increase revenue, with bigger returns that will have a favorable impact on the entire soccer system,” Serie A president Lorenzo Casini said on Thursday. Most of Serie A’s foreign rights are managed by the Swiss-based marketing firm Infront in a three-year deal that expires afte

HONG KONG (Reuters) -There is no reason to change Hong Kong's "one country, two systems" formula of governance, Chinese President Xi Jinping said on a rare visit to the global financial hub after swearing in the city's new leader, John Lee, on Friday. Britain returned Hong Kong to Chinese rule on July 1, 1997, with Beijing promising wide-ranging autonomy, unfettered individual rights and judicial independence at least until 2047. China's critics accuse authorities of trampling on those freedoms, unavailable on the authoritarian mainland, with a sweeping national security law imposed by Beijing on the city in 2020 after mass pro-democracy protests the year before.
