Over the past year, our editors have gloriously eaten their way across America, meticulously consuming all the best burgers, and pizzas, and BBQ they could. Then we turned our sights to figuring out which of the tens...

Rogers Media recently acquired broadcast rights to all NHL games in a 12-year, $5.2 million-dollar deal. But the future of Coach's Corner is uncertain, and at Don's age of 79, are retirement parties in his future? If that's the case, it prompts the question: could anyone really replace Grapes?
For about two weeks now, everyone who stops by our office has been wondering the same thing: Why do we keep glancing obsessively at a second screen, over there on the side of the room to the left? That second screen shows a small map of the world, scrolling bars and a number that changes constantly: the number of people playing Fort McMoney at this very moment.
At their age, the best explanation I can give my kids is that we are Muslim and that's why we don't celebrate Christmas. I know that as they get older, I can get into more detail but for now, that will have to suffice. We still wish our friends and neighbours who celebrate a Merry Christmas just as they wish us a Happy Eid when it's our turn and I hope to pass on this respect for other holidays and faiths to our children.

I was not the least bit surprised when I read that Ellen Richardson was banned entry into the U.S. because she suffered with depression and had a history of attempted suicide. That was unconscionable, but I do have a suggestion that may help prevent this for others. The police explained that many, if not all, contacts with them end up in their database. Regrettably, it is too late to help Ellen Richardson but others who may be in a similar situation and who may be travelling to the U.S. should check with their own police departments to find out what may have been entered.
With Steve Ballmer's imminent departure, the question is: What should they look for in Microsoft's next CEO? Here are my thoughts, in terms of the three kinds of focus.

Supply chains for products are hard to keep track of, and if companies aren't investing time, money, and energy in ensuring a clean supply chain, our consumerism continues to support labor exploitation.
Serie Tv Usa,
Sono giorni di rivolta questi che ci stanno passando sulla pelle, di urla, rabbia e proteste. Li stiamo vivendo ora dopo ora con le immagini dei 'Forconi' che invadono schermi e giornali. All'improvviso ci troviamo di fronte alla locandina di Shamless e ci sorge il dubbio che quel movimento e quella protesta non sia solo roba di casa nostra.
