With the midterm break over for the New York Legislature, lawmakers still have a pile of issues before them -- theirs and Gov. Eliot Spitzer's -- to try to finish before they head for summer vacation. What they and the governor need to do is make sure the rest of the session is steadily productive and not wait until June to cram for the finals.

The Ontario government is pulling the plug on old-style incandescent lightbulbs.

As part of a five-point energy conservation program announced yesterday, the energy and environment ministers said stores across the province will only be allowed to sell compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) by 2012.

"It's lights out for old, inefficient bulbs in Ontario," energy minister Dwight Duncan tol...

IN THE "Money Matters" column in the Finweek magazine of April 5 by Vic de Klerk (aka Trader Vic), the feasibility of a contrarian speculation on Zimbabwe was raised, but not answered.

I hope in this column to give the informed outsider an overview that will serve to filter a decision to further investigate - or not.

There are currently 82 listed counters and the stock exchange was...

Pack up your old beer fridges, provincial officials want your suds in less power-gobbling coolers -- and they're buying at least a few rounds.

Other incentives in a five-step energy-saving program the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) announced yesterday include chilling out earlier by servicing air conditioners this spring instead of waiting for summer's sweltering season.

For Ballet Hispanico, Latin dance stretches far beyond the borders of South America.

It moves across oceans, encapsulating the grace of formal European court dancers, the rhythm of African drums and the feel of electricity inside a New York City jazz club.

The prestigious dance company will showcase its fusion of ...

The contracts, signed with power plants in 1995 at the time of their privatisation, regulate prices for 2012-20.

Cancellation of the long-...

If you go to a concert by The Police, U2 or Madonna, there is about a one in four chance you purchased your prized ticket from a tout.

It is a figure Professor Alan Krueger - described as "the world's first and foremost professor of rockonomics" - says many people find surprising.
