Of course London has three times the population of Toronto.
Introducing "Dogissimo"" — an ice cream created specifically for canines which has gone on sale at a Vienna ice cream parlor. Those Viennese must be real dog lovers.
But at about 7 euros (nearly $10) for a large portion, it remains to be seen how well the new treat will sell. The smaller container goes for about 5 euros.
A group of residents in the valley in south-eastern British Columbia have asked telephone company Telus Corp. not to build a planned cellphone tower in New Denver, a one-time mining boomtown that is now home to about 600 people.
If Telus decides against building the system, the economic development group plans to promote the valley's "cellphone free status".
I think they should also go back to using horse and buggy.

A man with an unusually tiny brain managed to live an entirely normal life despite his condition, caused by a fluid buildup in his skull, French researchers reported.
Scans of the 44-year-old man's brain showed that a huge fluid-filled chamber called a ventricle took up most of the room in his skull, leaving little more than a thin sheet of actual brain tissue. Intelligence tests showed the man had an IQ of 75, below the average score of 100 but not considered mentally retarded or disabled, either.
Yet, he was a married father of two children, and worked as a civil servant.
A scary day for New Yorkers.
Chilean fans and players became quite emotional. At one point, Toronto police officers had to come onto the field to settle the steaming Chilean players and staff down, as they approached the game officials en masse.
But it's what happened after the game that's making international headlines and putting our police force under close scrutiny. Accusations that Toronto police used excessive force are buzzing about. Early reports suggest that billy clubs, tazers, and pepper spray were used, and blood was spilled in violent clashes between the Chilean team and police. As many as 9 players were arrested and later released. It's a real shame, and it looks really bad on all involved.

Officers pulled over his car after seeing it swerving from side to side on a busy road.They were shocked to find disabled driver Aurel Olteanu, 23, naked in his BMW 3 series in the seaside resort of Mamaia.
Police spokesperson Marius Ghita said: "He had no licence, but told us his he had developed his own special way of driving."
He said he had been sunbathing on a nudist beach and was travelling home. He had not dressed because he was in a hurry." Olteanu who was twice over the legal alcohol limit has been charged with dangerous driving.
I'm not sure what is more bizarre about this story - the fact that he was naked or that police had nabbed an armless guy with no licence.

It would have taken a substantial effort to clean off that many bushes of their berries, in any time period really. A local farm newspaper said the thieves apparently had to haul their load across a ditch, over a fence and through other rows of berry bushes, before leaving the Winnipeg-area farm with the loot -- which could be worth only $700.
Saskatoonberries, also known as Juneberries, are similar to blueberries although a little smaller. Pre-picked berries sell for about $3.50 a pound.
The show will be the exact same premise. Celebs will break up into two teams and compete in tasks. The losing team will report to the board room and one celeb will be fired. Ivanka and Donald Jr. will return as Trump's very boring advisors.
Trump had previously announced he was quitting after being slighted by the network. But he is such a rating whore. Speaking of which, Trump also said that he would love Rosie O'Donnell to be involved. Ben Silverman of NBC said, "I think it would be great to have Rosie on The Apprentice. Donald personally asked me to extend an invite to her."
Anything for ratings! Can't wait to see what lame celebrities they round up.

How can you tell? Easy. From the above frame grab we see that he is with his first wife, who disappeared sometime in 2003, reportedly because she couldn't adapt to life in the caves.
