    Palestinians in Jerusalem demolish own homes rather than see Israelis move in

    By Stephen Farrell and Ali Sawafta JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Two Palestinian families on Thursday demolished the homes they had lived in for nearly two decades, saying they would rather destroy them than face the prospect of Israeli settlers moving in. Within two hours, two mechanical diggers smashed through the ceilings, walls and floors of the two buildings in Beit Hanina, a village on the outskirts of East Jerusalem, territory that Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war and then annexed in a move not recognized internationally. Jihad Shawamreh, 50, a taxi driver, said that he built his six-room house in 2000 and that his ex-wife Fawzia, their six children and other relatives lived there until Thursday.

By Collin Eaton HOUSTON (Reuters) - An Aframax tanker is scheduled to deliver the largest shipment of crude oil from Vancouver to China since January 2015 later this month, Thomson Reuters trade flow data show. For years, Canadian officials have pushed for an escalation in crude exports to rapidly growing Asian markets, but companies in oil-rich Alberta have limited capacity to move crude to the nation's western coastline.

    Rottweiler Purrs And Gives Kisses During Cuddling Time With Owner

    A heartwarming video has emerged of a massive Rottweiler pooch purring and giving kisses during cuddle time with owner. Their night time routine is guaranteed to melt your heart. Judging by the excitement blinking from dog’s eyes it is obvious that he loves his owner so much, that he can't spend a minute without him! Adorable footage shows Max sleeping on owner’s chests, thoroughly enjoying his nighttime cuddles as he growls with excitement. Reportedly, this is his number one hobby and he is absolutely obsessed with it. Judging by the blissful reactions to owner scratching his belly, this dog is having the time of his life! Maybe, the belly is Max’s sweet spot, but nonetheless, this needy pooch is definitely crazy for his buddy! Do you have a sweet spot? You know, that one spot on your entire body which, when touched or scratched, sends shivers down your spine and makes you melt down into a puddle on the floor? Of course, you do, we all have them. It is just that we don’t actually meltdown and splatter on the ground, unlike this affectionate pooch! Cuteness overload! With dogs, it is an entirely different story. If you ever had the honor to give a dog a nice, loving scratch on the chin or behind the ears, you probably know what we are talking about. Some dogs thump their hind legs in the air when you scratch their bellies and it is the most hilarious thing to watch. In reality, it isn’t so much a signal of enjoyment, but rather an involuntary reflex; their brains register these belly scratches as if they are irritants or bugs. There is no harm there though. Max here, has a sweet spot right on the belly and naturally, he loves having it scratched. Whenever his owner lies down on the couch for some down time, Max makes a pillow out of owner’s body and hopes for some relaxation time for himself. The moment the belly-scratching begins, Max starts purring and growling in the sweetest manner. He is simply so excited that his owner is being so generous with the scratches, that he gets the tingling sensation travel all over his body that makes him lose his cool, so he starts making weird noises and starts pulling out his tongue, covering owner’s face with endless wet kisses. It’s a fair share! Who can resist those wet kisses? With an arm outstretched, the man pets his dog and Max is loving every moment of it. Watch as he squints his eyes with pleasure and swoons his face a bit towards owner’s face, sticking out his tongue to insert wet kisses on man’s cheeks. Oh, this is good! That’s the spot! Keep scratching! I’m loving it! So good, in fact, that she finally gives into the temptation and just splatters herself on the floor, perpendicular to the couch that holds the hand that gives such delightful scratches and waits for the treatments to continue. She even makes sure the hand doesn’t go away, so she places one paw on top, securing the scratcher in place. Isn’t she just the cutest thing ever? Every dog has a sweet spot which sends them into fits of nirvana, giving them a vibrating sensation all over their entire body, making them shiver. Usually, it is right on the belly and when scratched, they stomp their foot in the air or twitch their tails. It is both adorable and hilarious to witness, forcing us to keep scratching that spot. What a bonding activity that is, owner and pet, scratching their worries away. However, this dog’s reaction to owner hitting his sweet spot is much more different than with other dogs. He makes the most adorable growling sounds when scratched on the belly. Just check this sweet pooch who was sent into the sweetest nirvana when owner hit the spot! Incredible! What did you think about this video? Make sure you tell us more in the comments down below. If you like what you see, don’t forget to share it with others who might like it as well. It just might be the highlight of their day! Enjoy!

    Chasing Canadian steeplechase record secondary for Matt Hughes

    Matt Hughes won't mess with a good thing, even as he threatens to lower his Canadian-record time in the men's 3,000-metre steeplechase. In discussing his approach to the 2018 season, Hughes and coach Jerry Schumacher decided last fall that the former's focus would be on placing high and accumulating as many Diamond League points as possible rather than attempt to eclipse his personal-best time of eight minutes 11.64 seconds, set at the 2013 world championships in Moscow. "In the past, I would go into these races thinking, 'I have to hit this split, I have to go through the mile [or 1,500 metres] at this time' and I don't think that plays to my strength as a racer," the five-time national champion said in a phone interview ahead of Friday's 31st Herculis EBS Meeting in Monaco.

    Rejection of controversial project 'a pretty hard blow,' says Yukon miner

    Goeppel's initial application for a placer mine in the Judas Creek area was rejected by the government in 2016, largely because of a potential negative impact on the Carcross caribou herd. The board recommended the project be killed, and the Yukon government has agreed. YESAB's review said the Carcross herd, currently estimated to consist of about 775 caribou, is vulnerable, and that one of its biggest threats is loss of habitat. Goeppel's claims overlap with critical habitat area and a migratory route for the herd, according to YESAB.

    N.L. city recommends lemon to offset 'pondy' taste and aroma in water supply

    ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — The City of St. John's, N.L., is advising residents to season their tap water with "lemon or other citrus fruits" to offset a funky, but harmless taste permeating the water supply. The city said the aroma is a result of naturally occurring organic substances in the water supply, and that it can become more potent when the water is boiled. St. John's resident Kent Barrett said Thursday that he has noticed a flavour change, but hasn't really been bothered by similar tastes over the years.

    Switzerland seeks to regain cryptocurrency crown

    By Anna Irrera and Brenna Hughes Neghaiwi NEW YORK/ZURICH (Reuters) - Swiss regulators are stepping up efforts to halt an exodus of cryptocurrency projects from the country, after two of only a handful of banks active in the nascent sector shut their doors on it in the last year. The departures, which industry sources fear will continue, mean Switzerland is losing business to offshore rivals including Liechtenstein, Gibraltar and the Cayman Islands, where banks are more welcoming. While crypto-related business in Switzerland is tiny compared with its traditional banking sector, it has grown rapidly and employs hundreds of people, according to local officials.
