    National Security: Our secretary of state tells the Chinese we'll restrain missile defense activities in Asia in exchange for their help in reducing the threat of a nuclear North Korea. Isn't this where we came in? In a news conference after meetings with China's top leaders on Saturday, Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States would reduce its missile defenses in Asia if North Korea abandoned its nuclear weapons program. Well, at least he didn't bow. In response to North Korea's threat to fire some of its latest missiles, including the road-mobile Musudan, amidst news that it can...
  • Presidents Of A Feather: Can Clinton Save Obama?

    Politics: The president who wagged the dog and let bin Laden get away raises millions for the president who jokes about eating one while taking credit for Osama's death. A deal for Hillary as veep, perhaps? Politics makes strange bedfellows, the cliche goes. In 2008, Hillary Clinton waged a protracted and sometimes bitter battle for the Democratic presidential nomination against a former community organizer and absentee state senator from Illinois only to wind up as President Obama's secretary of state. Husband and former President Bill Clinton even made racially tinged remarks about Obama's primary victory over Hillary in the South...

    A radical new treatment could bring relief to millions of back pain sufferers, scientists said today. A team at the University of Manchester has developed a stem cell cure that could totally regenerate damaged tissues. Low back pain affects up to 80 per cent of the population at some point, and in many cases becomes persistent, eventually leading to debilitating pain. It is usually caused by the degeneration of the tissue between the discs in the back, which becomes dry and no longer able to support the body. Current treatments rely on strong painkillers or risky surgery, and aim to...

    VANCOUVER (CP) -- A private American company hopes to revolutionize birth control by launching the world's first implantable male contraceptive. Dr. Neil Pollock, co-founder of Shepherd Medical Company, told a news conference Monday that the Intra Vas Device, or IVD, is less invasive than a vasectomy but just as effective. "We feel that we have the potential to make a huge impact on the future of contraception in the world," said Pollock, co-founder of the company, as he showed off the 2.5-centimetre hollow silicone plug. Men have limited options when it comes to contraception and the IVD would shift the...
