A speaker system used to be a really complicated thing to gift. You needed to buy a ton of components separately and really know your giftee's space. Most of the time, you'd be better off hiring a pricey service to come in and wire everything; otherwise, what you really gave your loved one was a headache. Enter the soundbar. These streamlined devices are as simple to install as a Roku, and they amplify audio for crystal clear, whole-house listening. This popular Vizio model — on sale right now for just $148 — comes with six speakers and a wireless subwoofer for a truly cinematic experience. The main bar slides under the TV; no need to mount it on the wall. We love that it syncs easily to your phone or other devices via Bluetooth to play music, and works with Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant for hands-free entertainment. One happy shopper who called it "totally awesome" added, "It sounds like I have a theater in my home! I'm just blown away — you have to try this." Talk about easy listening!
Kids today just want to make content. To bond with them, you've got to meet them where they're at — and, FYI, that's on TikTok.

This all-in-one kit from Bower has everything they need to shoot high-quality videos on their phones: a ring light for the perfect glow, a tripod for hands-free filming and a green screen for limitless background editing potential. If you're lucky, they might be so impressed that they let you in on the action.
You could steal this grandfather's adorable idea and use it yourself for long-distance lasagna lessons: "I bought this to help me create my own cooking videos for my grandkids so they could learn how to make their favorite grandparent's recipes," he writes. "They were very impressed with the production quality, and viewing the results myself, I highly recommend this for anyone making a video presentation. Worth every penny!" If that's not the cutest thing we've ever heard, we don't know what is.
Ask us what the best part of any camping trip is, and the answer might surprise you. Hikes are nice. Panoramic views, too. Swimming, spotting animals, marveling at natural landmarks — all great. But what we really love about the great outdoors is cooking — and eating — there. Everything just tastes better at camp. The only problem is cooking can be a bit of a hassle unless you've invested in all the right equipment. If you have an outdoors enthusiast in your family or group of friends, this compact, 22-inch outdoor griddle can't miss. It's ideal for burgers, vegetables, fried eggs, blueberry pancakes and any fish they might happen to catch. Plus, it comes with a case that makes it easy to pack and bring along. You can practically smell the memories they'll make.

This sturdy propane powered model puts off 48K BTUs of warmth (that might be more than their grill!) and is a cinch to ignite and refill. It also has reassuring safety features like an anti-tip design and a thermocouple to prevent gas leaks. There's even a small surface to set down drinks. Just add food and drinks, and cue the fun for 2023.

Jerome Messam, 37, received an 18-month suspended sentence Monday after pleading guilty earlier this year to a charge of voyeurism. Court heard Messam and the woman followed each other on social media while he was a running back for the Canadian Football League team and, in November 2016, they had dinner together the
Tearful hugs are not unusual at St. John's International Airport, but for the Ukrainians who arrived in Newfoundland and Labrador — and the loved ones waiting for them — on Tuesday night, they marked the end of a stressful chapter in a long, harrowing journey. Serhii Kuper has been in Newfoundland and Labrador since June, when he arrived on the second government-chartered flight for people fleeing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. On Tuesday evening, he was back in the airport, this time waiting
Vancouver city council is set to vote on a motion to outfit police officers with body cameras by 2025, a move that councillors with the ABC Vancouver party say will fulfil a campaign promise to improve public safety in the city while addressing concerns about transparency and accountability in policing. The motion brought forward by Coun. Lenny Zhou would direct city staff to research the cost of the project, including the price of body-worn cameras and the data storage required to implement suc
Liberal MLAs are calling on the Higgs government to hold a public update on the spread of respiratory illnesses in New Brunswick, the state of health care, and what people can do to protect themselves and their families in advance of holiday gatherings.

A former Theranos executive learns Wednesday whether he will be punished as severely as his former lover and business partner for peddling the company's bogus blood-testing technology that duped investors and endangered patients. The sentencing for Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani, who was convicted in July of fraud and conspiracy, comes less than three weeks after Elizabeth Holmes, the company's founder and CEO, received more than 11 years in prison for her role in the scheme. The scandal revolved around

A panel on Tuesday called for changes at the federal agency that oversees most of the nation's food supply, saying revamped leadership, a clear mission and more urgency are needed to prevent illness outbreaks and to promote good health.

Iqaluit is set to have a new affordable housing option by the end of 2025. Last week, Iqaluit's non-profit Uquutaq Society announced it had won a tender from the city to take on the redevelopment of the Butler Building, in the downtown core. The non-profit's plan is to turn the building, which is currently being used for storage, into a rooming house.

In a letter to Transportation Minister Rob Fleming, Delta Mayor George Harvie describes the response to heavy snowfall in the region last week as a "recent failure of provincial highway winter maintenance." He says some drivers from Delta were stranded in their cars for up to 10 hours, wh
MONTREAL — In the 73 minutes on Tuesday afternoon that it took for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and five other dignitaries to officially open the 15th global talks to save nature from human destruction, statistics suggest another 4,000 hectares of forest around the world was lost to that same force. It is the kind of damage the meeting is looking to stop as the world faces a biodiversity crisis that is risking human health, contributing to food insecurity and exacerbating climate change. "Natur
DOHA, Qatar (AP) — There were no signs of the limp or the swollen ankle that had sidelined Neymar at the World Cup. There was a goal, though. Neymar scored from the penalty spot in the 13th minute to help Brazil beat South Korea 4-1 and advance to the quarterfinals for the eighth straight World Cup. The forward's 76th goal moved him one shy of Pelé's all-time scoring record for Brazil's national team. Vinícius Júnior, Richarlison and Lucas Paquetá also scored for Brazil at Stadium 974. Neymar ha

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) now expects a net profit of $4.7 billion for the industry next year, with more than 4 billion passengers set to fly.
