A word of warning about Dar al-Hayat. I have included it mainly for its rather different perspective rather that its less than stellar content. Some of those op-ed pieces - man...?!
For those of the International persuasion might I suggest a read through Canada's much loved newspaper The Globe and Mail. Whether burning it to keep warm in the -30 C. weather, or if you are simply interested in useful Canadian facts like the mating habits of polar bears, or ways to make an igloo in only 15 minutes, the Globe and Mail has it all.
