London, Ont., mother of two Nadia Petrasiunas, 31, has two e-cargo bikes and an old-school three-speed bicycle. Although Petrasiunas is a confident cyclist, she's disappointed she doesn't see many people like her in the media. "You don't see a lot of representation of bigger bodies on bikes," she said. Recently Petrasiunas has been interested in going on longer rides and is looking to buy some new bike touring gear. "I know that as a bigger person, I know I can't just walk into a store and find
Businesses, municipalities, and government departments are quickly finding out that moving into the green phase of recovery may be complicated. As the countdown continues to the lifting of pandemic restrictions, the province has left it up to individual businesses and municipalities to decide how to proceed.

SEOUL (Reuters) -South Korean game developer Krafton Inc said on Thursday it had priced its initial public offering (IPO) at the top of its indicative range to raise 4.3 trillion won ($3.75 billion). The Tencent-backed company behind blockbuster video game "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" (PUBG) had cut its IPO target by nearly a quarter in early July after a regulator said it needed to revise its filings. Despite the target cut, it is the second-largest South Korean IPO ever, after Samsung Life Insurance's 2010 float worth 4.9 trillion won.

Those who live in the Phoenix Apartments building at 1316 Carling Ave., which is across the street from Westgate Mall, said perpetrators smashed the window of the apartment's bike room sometime during the week of July 12, before cutting several locks and stealing as many as four bikes.

A week after the U.S. government surprised many by announcing the land border with Canada would remain closed for the time being, the exact reasons for that decision remain shrouded in secrecy. Not even American members of Congress have been given a detailed explanation for the decision. Congressman Brian Higgins of New York said the lack of information is leading to confusion among his constituents. "The silence from this administration about the northern border is maddening," said Higgins, who
BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) — Health authorities in Thailand raced to set up a large field hospital in a cargo building at one of Bangkok's airports on Thursday as the country reported record numbers of coronavirus cases and deaths.

Workers rushed to finish the 1,800-bed hospital at Don Mueang International Airport, where beds made from cardboard box materials were laid
After a small dip last week, the price of gas in Newfoundland and Labrador is back up again. In its weekly pricing adjustment, the province's Public Utilities Board raised the maximum price of gas by 1.2 cents per litre, all but erasing last week's drop of 1.4 cents per litre, which came after three consecutive weeks of record high prices in the province. The maximum price per litre, effective Thursday morning, is now $1.545 per litre of self-serve on the Avalon Peninsula. In southern Labrador,
The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter, reported that the Chinese company has been mulling delisting plans as a crackdown in China widens and it has received support from cybersecurity regulators.

"The company affirms that the above information is not true," it said, in reference to the report.

MANAVGAT, Turkey (Reuters) -Three people died in a forest fire in southern Turkey on Thursday where authorities were battling multiple blazes for a second day amid suspicions of arson, the country's AFAD disaster agency and the agriculture minister said. Dozens of villages as well as some hotels were evacuated, and television footage showed burnt buildings and people fleeing across fields as firefighters on the ground and in helicopters tried to contain a blaze in Manavgat, 75 km (45 miles) east of the Mediterranean resort of Antalya. Officials have said that more than 60 wildfires have erupted across 17 provinces on Turkey's Aegean and Mediterranean coasts this week, with the presidency vowing to hold to account those responsible for the "attacks".
Police are investigating after more than 30 catalytic converters were stolen from vehicles parked at Canada Post locations within the last two months, and thefts may only be a symptom of a larger problem throughout the Toronto area.

A month later, 18 converters were stolen from a centre on Commissioners Street. In total, more than $160,000 worth

The City of Ottawa is looking for a digital platform of its own to scrape short-term rental platforms, which would help crack down on people who might flout a new bylaw. The bylaw approved in spring 2021 requires permits for listing short-term rentals on websites such as Airbnb, and hosts can only list their principal residences or rural cottages with a maximum of 10 guests. The city began phasing in the new rules this June, though zoning elements of the new rules are being appealed. The city ha
British drone insurer Flock has raised $17 million from investors in early-stage funding led by venture investor Chamath Palihapitiya's Social Capital, Flock said on Thursday. Flock started out insuring commercial drones, and added car and van fleets last year. Trends such as ride-sharing and same-day delivery require new types of insurance, CEO Ed Leon Klinger said, as the world also looks ahead to driverless cars.
TROOZ, Belgium (AP) — Visions of cars being swept away in a raging current keep coming back to trouble Eric Mouqué. His wife, Cindy, gets triggered by the slightest noise. So when her husband turns on the hose to clean a few things, all she can think about are those tumultuous floodwaters that ripped away homes, streets, businesses and entire neighborhoods two weeks ago in Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland. “I panic," Cindy Mouqué says.

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Burundi’s government now says it will accept COVID-19 vaccines, becoming one of the last countries in the world to embrace them. But the health ministry says it will not take responsibility for any side effects they might cause. Health Minister Thaddee Ndikumana on Wednesday said the vaccines will arrive with the support of the World Bank. It was not immediately clear how many doses the East African country will receive or when. “The vaccine will be given to those who need
By American standards, Canadian inflation looks pretty tame. But the picture painted by U.S. Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell suggests we should expect price rises to continue for a while yet. Hours after Statistics Canada reported inflation had declined to 3.1 per cent here — below the previous month's 3.6 per cent, but still above the Bank of Canada's target range — Powell expressed fears that future consumer prices could be "higher and more persistent." The U.S. economy is heating up faste
Crown prosecutors say four women charged in a multimillion-dollar tax fraud scheme made repeated attempts to fool the Canada Revenue Agency. The Cape Breton women — Georgette Young, Angela MacDonald, Nadia Saker, and their mother, Lydia Saker — are facing 30 charges, including fraud.

TOKYO (Reuters) -Panasonic Corp said first-quarter operating profit surged more than 27 times, handily beating expectations as demand for home appliances and automotive batteries recovered from a particularly weak COVID-hit year. Profit for April-June rose to 104.4 billion yen ($950 million) from 3.8 billion yen a year earlier, some 50% higher than market expectations and its strongest performance for a first quarter since 2008. Panasonic, a key supplier of batteries to Tesla Inc, has moved away from low-margin consumer electronics, and now focuses on electric car batteries, industrial-use components and production machinery.
Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin faced calls to resign on Thursday from the opposition and the biggest bloc in the ruling coalition, after a rare rebuke by the king over the government's handling of emergency ordinances. Muhyiddin's government said earlier this week that on July 21 it had revoked all ordinances that had come into effect since a national state of emergency was imposed in January. King Al-Sultan Abdullah imposed the emergency on the advice of Muhyiddin, who had said it was needed to curb the spread of COVID-19.
