Motherhood is demanding but it’s moments like these when the pressures fade away

Today 14:30 GMT

Those words of encouragement have helped me to see that maybe I am doing something, one thing, right – instilling in my kids the desire to try something new, to not let fear dictate their lives, and to seek adventure in the quiet of nature.

I do all of these spirited adventures not only because I love the outdoors and want to teach my kids the value of independence and build their confidence, but it’s these times when I feel the freest from the demands of motherhood.

Canada’s pot party: Big demand, short supply, and stamps with no glue

Today 16:19 GMT

Once the pot producers dealt with CBNC to receive their stamps, they were likely dismayed to find that the stamps had no glue on them — and there was only one company in Canada that could affix glue to the stamps.

While it was a celebration of the first day of legal marijuana sales in Canada, few remarked on the fact that the pot they were smoking had to have been obtained illegally, since the online store in Ontario had not begun actually delivering yet.

Today 15:24 GMT

Amidst international scorn for Saudi Arabia’s official explanation of the death of Jamal Khashoggi, friends and colleagues of the reporter on Saturday resumed their vigil outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, where he was killed two weeks ago.

Haley demands UN punish Cuba, Bolivia after ‘mob scene’ at US event for Cuban political prisoners

Today 12:39 GMT

In a letter to Secretary General Antonio Guterres, sent Friday and obtained by Fox News, Haley said the behavior by the Cuban and Bolivian diplomats was “outrageous” and called for action from Guterres. “Due to the outrageous behavior of the Cuban and Bolivian U.N. delegations, this diplomatic event became a mob scene, and resulted in significant damage to U.N. property,” the letter says.

“This lack of standards continues to undermine the organization and demonstrates again why the United States was right to withdraw from it earlier this year,” she said.

The important lesson I learned when my son suffered an asthma attack

Today 09:00 GMT

As I was sitting there with my exhausted, sweaty son sitting in my lap, I thought about how I’m feeling towards God right now.

When I tried to put it on his face, he began screaming and thrashing around, fighting me with all the strength he could muster. I had to wrap my arms and legs around him to keep him from clawing off the mask as he screamed, “All done!” which is what he says when he’s full.

Oil Prices Could Fall Further on Rising U.S. Oil Supplies, OPEC Report Says

Friday 20:01 GMT

Rising crude oil inventories and increased output in the U.S. could push oil prices down in the coming weeks, an internal OPEC report said Thursday.

The buildup, “amid the upward trend in US crude oil production, could be a bearish factor for oil prices in the coming few weeks," the report said. OPEC’s assessment came as Brent crude, the global oil benchmark, fell below the $80-a-barrel threshold for the first time in nearly a month on Thursday, after data showed an unexpected rise in U.S. inventories.

Saturday 10:50 GMT

Oil prices rose Friday but failed to breach the $80-a-barrel threshold, as the market digested signs of weakening demand and rising U.S. inventories.
