50 Photos that tell our 2018 story

Shutdown Hampers Wildfire Preparations

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Just two months after a wildfire wiped out Paradise, California, officials are gearing up for this year’s fire season and fear the government shutdown could make it even more difficult than one of the worst in history. The winter months are critical for wildfire managers who use the break from the flames to prepare for the next onslaught, but much of that effort has ground to a halt on U.S. land because employees are furloughed. Firefighting training courses are being ca...

Connor McDavid Misses The Edmonton Oilers Super Skills Competition

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, In my mind, it was going to be a wonderful event. There would be a capacity crowd with young fans holding ‘Happy Birthday Connor’ signs and everybody would stand and sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to him. Indeed, there was a capacity crowd for the Edmonton Oilers Super Skills Competition Sunday at Rogers Place. Most of the fans were kids. And several held up signs wishing McDavid ‘Happy Birthday’ cardboard signs.... There was no big public address ...

There is no "mandate." And oh, by the way, Judge O'Connor didn't enjoin enforcement of any provision of the ACA, let alone "strike down" Obamacare in its entirety.

All the many critics are absolutely correct that Judge O’Connor’s severability analysis in his Affordable Care Act opinion yesterday is indefensible.  By focusing so intently on the severability argument, however, many of those critics concede (or assume) far too much at the front end, which is, if anything, even less defensible. The linchpin of O’Connor’s judgment—the part that triggers his severability analysis in the first place—is his conclusion that once the Affordable Care Act’s “shared r...

FBI Agents Association Warns Of Harm From Shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) — The association that represents thousands of FBI agents warned Thursday that a partial government shutdown could cause laboratory delays, reduce money for investigations and make it harder to recruit and retain agents. The FBI Agents Association sent a petition to the White House and congressional leaders encouraging them to fund the FBI immediately. Friday will be the first day that the nearly 13,000 special agents will miss their paychecks. “This is not about politics for ...

Princess Di’s killer, Burt Reynolds is a killer, and a killer milkshake, in this week’s dubious tabloids

It’s a fresh and shiny New Year filled with hope and possibilities, but the same ol’ exaggerations, fantasy and fact-challenged nonsense as ever proliferates in this week’s tawdry tabloids. And as ever, they dig deep into the past for "news" we’ve seen many times before. “This Man Killed Diana in Paris Tunnel!” screams the National Enquirer cover story about the death of a Princess, naming Parisian limo driver-bodybuilder Le Van Thanh. But Thanh was identified as the driver of a Fiat Uno that po...

The greatest little club in the world

Polite Fortnite Society

My parents are approaching 60. When they were young, they hung out at diners, or drove around in their cars. My generation hung out in the parking lot after school, or at the mall. My colleague John Biggs often talks of hanging out with his nerd buddies in his basement, playing games and making crank calls. Today, young people are hanging out on a virtual island plagued by an ever-closing fatal storm. It’s called Fortnite . They hang out in Fortnite the way we used to hang out in basements ...

Oilers McDavid Will Reach Elite Company

Making history is nothing new for Connor McDavid. He’s been setting records and winning awards throughout his hockey career.

Pending RFAs to Put Teams in Cap Hell

The first part of the 2018-19 NHL season was dominated by William Nylander talk. Talk about his contract, talk about offer sheets and talk about possible trade options. That tireless cycle finally came to an end on Dec. 1 when the Toronto Maple Leafs signed Nylander just before the five o’clock deadline. Toronto Maple Leafs William Nylander (THE CANADIAN PRESS/Nathan Denette) This chaotic process was just a sampling of what’s to come in the offseason. Although July 1 is still far off, it’s imp...

Winter fun at Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish, British Columbia

Winter fun at the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish One of the things we love about living in Vancouver is that we can be deep in nature within a short drive. There are so many awesome day trips from Vancouver that it can be difficult to make a decision. Those who live in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia rarely say, “there’s nothing to do this weekend”.  We visited the Sea to Sky Gondola shortly after it opened in the summer of 2014 (read about that experience here). Since then, we’ve hike...

Former Ref Suggests McDavid Needs to “Chat” With NHL Officials

As part of Episode 3 of The Hockey Writers Podcast, I had the pleasure of chatting with former NHL official Kerry Fraser. Among the topics that came up in that exclusive one-on-one interview — which included inconsistency with the play-calling, the inexperience of NHL officials these days and a couple great stories from Fraser’s time as an NHL ref — one of the more interesting discussions was how superstar players like Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers should be dealing with NHL officials an...
