It could certainly be argued that 1971 was the year that David Bowie became David Bowie: He recorded and released his first brilliant album, “Hunky Dory”; wrote, recorded and conceived most of the “Ziggy Stardust” album and larger-than-life persona that would lead him to stardom; and teamed up with the manager, the label and band […]

VICTORIA — A government plan to phase out individualized funding for children diagnosed with autism in British Columbia was dropped Friday by Premier David Eby, who said families don't need the stress of worrying about losing supports for their kids. Eby said the decision to maintain individualized funding instead of phasing it out in 2025 came after recent meetings with parents, caregivers, Indigenous groups, child rights organizations and experts. Parents of children with autism have been call
On Friday Greenpeace activists in Madrid targeted shops holding sales, with signs such as ‘made for the bin’. The group says the high levels of consumerism and production encouraged by the reductions leads to higher levels of carbon dioxide emissions, as well as unnecessary waste.View on euronews

Efforts to protect centuries-old eastern hemlock trees from an invasive insect are expanding in Nova Scotia after a volunteer group found success in the Tobeatic Wilderness Area. Last fall, a group of volunteers started inoculating trees on the central island of Sporting Lake with insecticide, to protect them from an infestation of hemlock woolly adelgids. The adelgid has been wreaking havoc on hemlocks in eastern North America — including Nova Scotia — for years. The tiny bugs are native to the
ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan's former premier Imran Khan said Saturday his party was quitting the country's regional and national assemblies, as he made his first public appearance since being wounded in a gun attack earlier this month. Khan, a former cricket star turned politician, was ousted in a no-confidence vote in Parliament in April. He is now in the opposition and has been demanding early elections, claiming his ouster was illegal and orchestrated by Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, with the
Bull sharks are massive and powerful animals that have a reputation for aggression. They can grow to more than 3m (10 feet) in length, weighing upwards of 350kg (800lbs). They are fearsome predators that are afraid of very little. These scuba divers in Fiji have descended 25m (75 feet) beneath the surface to gather in an area inhabited by hundreds of bull sharks. They have a front row seat to a controlled feeding. These feedings are controversial and experts have differing opinions on how appropriate they are. Initially, it was seen as harmful to the animal life to interfere and change their behaviour. It cannot be denied that encouraging sharks to associate humans with food is potentially dangerous. But this situation is far more complex than it would first appear. The nearby village off the island of Fiji was struggling to survive. Large fishing operations offered a substantial and irresistible compensation for the rights to fish on the reef within their boundaries. Soon after, the fish were depleted and the health of the reef was in serious decline. The sharks were in danger of starving. These shark feedings began as a way to attract tourism dollars that would allow the village to thrive without allowing overfishing. The village is compensated generously for allowing the tours and the fisheries are not threatened. Fish populations are on the rebound and sharks have returned to the reef. It's a matter of debate whether the benefit outweighs the harm on an ethical front, but it's undeniable that the sharks and fish populations have increased as a result of this change. If something had not been done, the reef and the village would have suffered irreparable harm.

MONTREAL — Quebec is making the flu vaccine free for all residents this year. The shots had only been free for certain high-risk groups and for health-care workers. Health officials said today the government reversed position because of the high levels of influenza, respiratory syncytial virus, and novel coronavirus circulating in the province.

OTTAWA — Respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, appears to be slowing in Ontario, the province's health minister said Friday, although she warned that influenza was expected to ramp up. A combination of RSV, the flu and COVID-19 have been putting immense strain on pediatric hospitals across Ontario, with many having to cancel surgeries to accommodate the influx of patients. Health Minister Sylvia Jones said that while RSV seems to be somewhat easing, the province is still heading into influenza se
