    Poor Citizens to Receive $1,320 a Month in Canada's 'No Strings Attached' Basic Income Trial

    Ontario is poised to become a testing ground for basic income in 2017 as part of a pilot program. Hugh Segal is the special advisor to the Canadian province and a former senator. He believes a supplemental income of $1,320 a month could provide a viable path to poverty abatement—effectively replacing welfare programs and a system he described as “seriously demeaning” in a paper discussing this basic income pilot project.

    Welcome to the new dark ages, where only the wealthy can retire

    It’s almost too easy to imagine the scenario. After spending most of our adult life in paid employment, the golden day arrives. A well-earned retirement. Suddenly we’re released from the grip of office email and that long commute. Finally we can enjoy our remaining time on Earth pursuing those interests we’d never had time for, perhaps reconnecting with family and finishing those repairs on the house. Above all, time to relax.

    Brewery offers paid 'paw-ternity' leave for employees with new puppies

    A newborn puppy can be a full-time job, that's why beer maker BrewDog — a Scottish brewery set to open up an Ohio location later this year — now offers a week of paid leave for employees with new puppies or rescued dogs. The company said it's the first company in the United States, and the first brewery in the United Kingdom, to offer the "paw-ternity" benefit. BrewDog, in an announcement made earlier this week, said the benefit will be offered to all of its nearly 1,000 ...

    'Our £820,000 house is too big - but there's nowhere to move to' 

    It’s well known that there is a housing crisis which leaves young people unable to buy their own homes. But there is also a crisis at the other end of the property market which leaves thousands of older people imprisoned in unsuitably large properties. A lack of smaller, more manageable homes, along with punitive stamp duty and other moving costs, is leaving would-be downsizers stumped.

    A man who was given just 18 months to live after being diagnosed with cancer has been left with no trace of the disease - after being one of the first in the world to test a new drug. Bob Berry is one of just three people to take part in the trial at The Christie – and one of just 12 across the globe. The 60-year-old was diagnosed with lung cancer three years ago, after suffering pains in his shoulder.

    How These Famous Bands Got Their Names

    Being in a band is not always what it is cracked up to be. It requires total commitment in creating music and continuously improving your artistic nature. The music business is a unique industry in its own right as well. There have been several artists who made billions of dollars by a single song and on the other hand, there are also several singers and bands who have made multiple albums but still failed to earn even a single dime.

    Scientists turned cooking oil into a material that's 200 times stronger than steel

    Researchers have found a way to turn cheap, everyday cooking oil into the wonder material graphene - a technique that could greatly reduce the cost of making the much-touted nanomaterial. Graphene is a single sheet of carbon atoms with incredible properties - it's 200 times stronger than steel, harder than diamond, and incredibly flexible. Under certain conditions, it can even be turned into a superconductor that carries electricity with zero resistance.

    Nation's bacon reserves hit half-century low

    The country's bacon reserves are at the lowest levels in half a century. In other words, pig farmers can't keep up with the world's sizzling appetite. The Ohio Pork Council, a Columbus-based nonprofit, reported Tuesday that demand for frozen pork belly, frequently made into bacon, is outpacing supply. “Today’s pig farmers are setting historic records by producing more pigs than ever,” said Rich Deaton, president of the organization. “Yet our reserves are still depleting.”

    Anne Frank and her family were also denied entry as refugees to the U.S.

    Many have noted the historical parallels between the current debate over Syrians seeking refuge in the United States and the plight of European Jews fleeing German-occupied territories on the eve of World War II. Among the many who tried — and failed — to escape Nazi persecution: Otto Frank and his family, which included wife, Edith, and his daughters, Margot and Anne. And while the story of the family's desperate attempts ending in futility may seem remarkable today...

    The US 'Six Strikes' Anti-Piracy Scheme is Dead

    In 2011, the MPAA and RIAA teamed up with several major U.S. Internet providers, announcing their plan to shift the norms and behavior of BitTorrent pirates. The parties launched the Center for Copyright Information and agreed on a system through which Internet account holders are warned if their connections are used to download pirated content. The program allowed ISPs to take a variety of repressive measures, including bandwidth throttling and temporary Internet disconnections.

    Islamic school downgraded by Ofsted after its pupils did not know who Theresa May and Hillary Clinton were

    An Islamic school has been downgraded by Ofsted after its pupils did not know who Theresa May and Hillary Clinton were when quizzed by inspectors. The independent, all-boys Darul Hadis Latifiah school was branded inadequate across all areas, as the school watchdog concluded pupils were "not prepared for life in modern Britain" and many were unable to name the country's Prime Minister. Inspectors also found CCTV cameras in the school toilets and a book which "promoted inapprop...

    Severe PMS Linked to Gene Network Disturbance

    Even though its causes have been unclear, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) has been described as a severe form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Affecting 2–5% of women of reproductive age, PMDD is like PMS in that it follows a predictable, cyclic pattern. Yet PMDD, which is marked by disabling irritability, sadness, and anxiety, is associated with unusual sensitivity to fluctuations in sex hormones. This sensitivity has motivated researchers to focus on PMDD’s potential biological drive...
