Manitoba Liberals Acknowledge Louis Reil
Manitoba's Liberals say if they're elected on April 19th, they will formally acknowledge Louis Riel as the province's first premier. Liberal Leader Rana Bokhari says it's not about revising history; it's about acknowledging what they know to be true. Alfred Boyd is recognized as Manitoba's first premier. In 1870 and 1871 Boyd was the provincial secretary, and later recognized as premier. The Manitoba N-D-P have responded that last month, they stood with the Manitoba Metis Federation to officially recognize Riel as ``Manitoba's first leader.''

That rushed the extremists to launch the suicide bombings at Brussels' airport and subway.

MoeJoe Brewing Company- which is a Baltimore, Maryland based company- has created a mobile coffeemaker about the size of a travel mug that plugs into a U-S-B port. The founder of the Kickerstarter project says the idea came from his student days, when he wanted coffee but didn't want to leave his seat in the library.
