We can't let little things like borders get in the way when there are pokemons begging to be captured.
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/pokemongo-alberta-brothers-us-border-crossing-1.3692564
U.S. Border Patrol officials say two Canadian teenagers were briefly apprehended after they accidentally crossed the U.S. border into Montana while playing the game "Pokemon Go."

National borders are the world's biggest problem. The US has problems with illegal immigration from Mexico because we have high minimum wage and they have drug lords. Both problems could be solved if the nations were united under one law. Britain wants out of the EU because it has open borders for all members and they're letting in terrorists, but if they could add the country to the union the terrorists were coming from they could be authorized to solve that problem at it's source. Since we can't fix problems that make people go to other nations where they're not wanted, as we can't get the nations to unite, we all solve the problem the easy way and wall them off. The US and Canada used to have friendlier border relations.

FOUND CAT! Cream color, no tags, doubt it's chipped. Very large and well fed. Can't keep it because my dog seems scared of it.

An app that matches food that would otherwise be thrown out with non-profits that can use it. Very cool.

What if there was a push-button way of matching business' spare food with homeless people? What if an app could actually be useful in this situation?

The lesson, again, is that people are idiots. And Tesla's technology should always keep that fact in mind.

A fatal crash calls into question the car company’s approach to building autonomous vehicles—and underscores the stark contrast between its strategy and Google’s.

A city employee was told their puppy couldn't hang out at work. In a fit of pique, the employee arranged for city council to order the local library to fire their popular mascot.

Notes for a new lesson to be taught in war colleges. When staging a coup, grab control of the Internet.

It's sad the media these days makes everything about race. I think the comments are more accurate in saying anyone would get reported as suspicious when they sit in a parked vehicle for hours. Police check out all kinds of non-incidents. When I was a kid I walked home from the mall one day when a cop stopped and gave me a ride, said someone in the area called to report me walking because I was tired, said they thought I looked drunk.

What if you gave your first name when ordering coffee and discovered that the barista knew your birthdate, where you worked and your home address? The faces that customers make when confronted with that situation are captured in a new video raising awareness about online privacy.

What kinda cold-hearted bureaucrat could shut down these adorable entrepreneurs?

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/ncc-apologizes-for-shutting-lemonade-stand-1.3663588
The federal body responsible for managing federal land in Canada's capital region is apologizing for how it handled the issue of a child-run lemonade stand being run in Ottawa without a permit over the long weekend.

We can't have kids just selling lemonade anywhere just because they're kids or there could be chaos. Next we'll see kids running unlicensed car dealerships.

He's right. The agreement is 2% of GDP; we're not paying our fair share.

http://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/we-need-you-obama-asks-canada-to-do-its-share-for-nato-1.2967595
In a mostly praise-filled speech from U.S. President Barack Obama, one notable exception was his urging that Canada “contribute its full share” to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
