He’s had talks with a couple of teams, too, including the Chicago Bears, who wouldn’t mind another option behind Jay Cutler.

Mark Buehrle's first season with the Toronto Blue Jays has mirrored that of his team. It was mostly very disappointing until recently. The 14-year veteran could improve to .500 and help the Blue Jays get within a game of that mark if their longest winning streak in nearly five years continues Wednesday night against the Colorado Rockies. Buehrle (3-4, 4.66 ERA), who hasn't finished ...

Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.

We also cover the nation. Regional news too is a priority, as is our extensive world news coverage. For a Toronto weather report, local news, breaking international headlines, or what's happening in sports, the Toronto Telegraph is for you.
Our Business Centre too is active 24 hours a day, bringing you the latest market updates from key global centres like Tokyo, Sydney, London, Paris, Berlin, and New York. Foreign exchange rates are a regular feature, and we provides a vast range of general interest news covering topics like business travel, seniors, womens interest, and lifestyle stories.
University of Toronto scientists have found pockets of water that had been sitting 2.4 kilometres underneath the Earth's surface for more than a billion years.
Earth sciences professor Barbara Sherwood, who admitted that she had tasted it from time to time, revealed that the water has the consistency of maple syrup and is much saltier than seawater, News.com.au reported.
She told the LA Times that it tastes terrible and is much saltier than seawater.
The water is transparent when it first comes out from the rocks it has been trapped between but quickly turns an orange colour as the minerals within it, such as iron, begin to form.
The rocks the water is trapped in formed about 2.6 billion years ago on what used to be an ancient ocean floor. The scientists suspect that the trapped water could be remnant ocean water, which got stuck as it moved through the cracks in the rock.
The results of this discovery were published in scientific journal Nature last month. (ANI)
