Transportation Safety Board says planes missed each other by 14 seconds on Calgary airport runway

  Transportation Safety Board says planes missed each other by 14 seconds on Calgary airport runway The opening of a rarely used runway and a failure of co-ordination between a ground controller and the flight tower resulted in two planes at Calgary International Airport missing each other by just 14 seconds, says Canada’s Transportation Safety Board. An investigation report released by the agency Monday found that on Dec. 2, 2016,  Air Canada flight 221 had been cleared for takeoff on infrequently used Runway 29 about the same time a Sunwest Aviation cargo aircraft was given clearance to taxi along a taxiway that intersected the east-west runway.

As heavy snowfall covered Paris, newlyweds Yu Jian and Chen Yiyun posed for stunning images in front of the Eiffel Tower.

"It's beautiful when it snows," the couple told The Associated Press. "And we are so excited because this is our first time in Paris and in front of the Eiffel Tower."

They made the most of the bitterly cold weather, which is causing major travel disruptions in the city and across the northern half of the country.

Google Photos uses AI to make videos for multiple occasions

  Google Photos uses AI to make videos for multiple occasions Google Photos has been making themed videos from uploaded pictures for a while now. The themes are pretty self-explanatory; themed movie titles include "They Grow Up So Fast," "Meow Movie," "Selfie Movie," "Valentine's Day Movie" and "In Loving Memory." All you need to do is open the Google Photos app, tap on the Assistant tab and then tap on Movie. You can also make a quick flick on the web, too. Once you've chosen a theme and the people or pets to start in it, Google will do the rest, adding appropriate photos and canned music.

Snowfall began Tuesday afternoon and continued through Wednesday. Nearly five inches of accumulation was expected in Paris, while neighboring suburbs could see as much as seven inches.

The Eiffel Tower was closed due to the weather on Wednesday. Some Parisians were seen using skis and snowboards to get around.

The cold snap caught French authorities off guard, according to The AP, and hundreds of people were forced to spend the night trapped in their vehicles because the roads were not cleared.

Commuters were left stranded in stations as buses were canceled and train service was reduced.

"We did everything we could to anticipate this situation," Johanna Primevert, a spokeswoman for the Paris police department, told RTL radio.

Trudeau family criticized for overdoing it on their traditional Indian outfits .
The PM and his family's traditional outfits have been described as "over the top."It's one thing to pay respectful homage to a culture, but it's another thing entirely when your traditional attire starts to veer into costume territory. That's exactly what some are saying about the Trudeaus.
