The Globe and Mail is a Canadian newspaper printed in five cities in western and central Canada. With a weekly readership of 2,018,923 in 2015, it is Canada's most widely read newspaper on weekdays and Saturdays, although it falls slightly behind the Toronto Star in overall weekly circulation because the Star publishes a Sunday edition while the Globe does not. The Globe and Mail is regarded by some as Canada's "newspaper of record".Source

Netflix eyes password controls, ads in bid to boost subscribers

Netflix Inc. soared during the pandemic as people flocked to the video-streaming giant to occupy themselves at home amid widespread public-health restrictions.

Shares in Netflix plunged 35 per cent on the news Wednesday, erasing about US$54-billion in market value.It’s a sharp contrast from the past two years, when tens...

Opinion: Tim Hortons’ identity crisis could erode chain’s long-established brand

Opinion: Tim Hortons’ identity crisis could erode chain’s long-established brand

Sylvain Charlebois is a professor of food distribution and policy, and director of the Agri-Food Analytics Lab, at Dalhousie UniversityTim Hortons is finishing what is likely one of the strangest years in its history. Most of the iconic chain’s decisions have left Canadians scratching their heads. Many of its choices in recent months have been simply inexplicable.Take the Beyond Meat burger and breakfast sandwich: Tim Hortons took the well-promoted plant-based burger off its menu in September, 2019, only two months after introducing it at most of its 4,300 locations across the country.

Opinion: Forget 2016. This time, Donald Trump faces destruction

Opinion: Forget 2016. This time, Donald Trump faces destruction

Since the 2016 shocker, there’s always been a tendency to give Donald Trump the benefit of the doubt when talking about his re-election chances.When all his negatives are raised, knees invariably start jerking. “Ah, but look what happened last time,” comes the response. He was counted out and still won. When it’s noted that he’s been trailing in the polls virtually every day in the past 3½ years, there’s the same reply: Look what happened last time.But it’s finally time to forget what happened then. Chances of it happening again this time are going up in smoke. Mr. Trump is running with a...

Future proofing: Upgrade fading offices or convert them to residential?

Future proofing: Upgrade fading offices or convert them to residential?

An aging 12-storey office building in Edmonton sat vacant after its tenants moved to a more modern building. The initial choices for landlord Strategic Group in a market with a glut of office space were to renovate in hopes of attracting enough office tenants to cover the operating costs or tear the building down and start fresh. But there was a third option: convert the building in a desirable location to a fully rented residential building.It’s a reuse many owners of smaller, older buildings are contemplating across Canada in an office market destined to change in a post-COVID-19 economy,...

What Michael Flynn’s case reveals about the U.S. justice system

What Michael Flynn’s case reveals about the U.S. justice system

WashingtonNearly 2½ years ago, Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, the first former Trump administration member convicted in Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling in U.S. politics.Now, in a sudden about-face, the Justice Department has dropped the charge, arguing that the ex-national security adviser’s statements to the FBI did not matter because they were inconsequential to the investigation and he had done nothing wrong.In between these two moments was a legal battle by Mr. Flynn to change his plea and a push by President Donald Trump to have him exonerated.To...

How neglected cargo became a ‘ticking time bomb’ in Beirut

How neglected cargo became a ‘ticking time bomb’ in Beirut

LondonThe series of events that led to Tuesday’s catastrophic explosion in Beirut appears to have begun in late 2013, when technical problems forced a cargo ship to make an unscheduled stop in the city’s port.Lebanon’s port authorities were shocked when they boarded the vessel to inspect it. Not only was the merchant vessel Rhosus, flying a Moldovan flag, unfit to continue on its journey – it was carrying an astonishing 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate in its hold.That ammonium nitrate – which was eventually taken off the ship and stored in a warehouse at the port – is believed to have been...
