Lady Rosalyn Carter has died dubbed the Steel Magnolia by the political press Carter served in the White House alongside her husband peanut farmer turned President Jimmy Carter rosn Carter often sat in on her husband’s cabinet meetings and White House AIDS privately called them co-presidents they were the longest married presidential

Couple having wed in 1946 when rosin was just 18 and Jimmy was 21 growing up I didn’t think I would ever get married I didn’t like boys I didn’t know how to talk to them and then Along Came Jimmy Carter and my life’s been an adventure ever since in a statement today the

Former president said rosin was my equal partner in everything I ever accomplished after leaving Washington they founded the Carter center with the goal of advancing human rights but roselyn’s most lasting Legacy is her effort to reduce the stigma around mental illness as well as her fight for increased access to Mental Health

Treatment Rosalyn Carter was 96 years old 60 years ago this week in Dallas three shots rang out from the Texas Schoolboard depository and forever changed a nation a visibly emotional Walter kronite broke the news on CBS from Dallas Texas The Flash apparently official President Kennedy died at 100 p.m. Central Standard Time

2:00 Eastern Standard Time some 38 minutes ago Ripple effects from the assassination of President John F Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald are still felt to this day Steve fman SP spoke to people from all over the world who went to Dallas to Mark the anniversary 60 years later they still

Come to the place where it happened we’re here in D Plaza which is the site of one of the most horrific events in American history it’s the assassination of President John F Kennedy even if they weren’t alive in 1963 people are able to connect with this event well I’m for the

First time in Dallas I came here for business the morning we went we came across mariio dobrescu from Romania he wanted to come to this exact spot so this is the hill this is where he was driving right here on this street yeah yeah yeah with the car I’m 82 years old

And so I do remember where I was standing when I heard the news many who visit of course were alive when it happened for them the memories are different in Los Angeles City College I was a student there and uh when the news rang out everybody just stood still and

Couldn’t believe it I was 10 years old in the sixth grade my mother was picking me up at school Nan Whitaker traveled to Dallas from Knoxville Tennessee she remembers explicit details did you cry did your mother cry I wanted to you’re emotional even right now tell me why the

Memories this woman came with her two teen daughters we’re from uh Wales in the United Kingdom and we it’s just something you have to see really what do you know about the assassination uh well I know that was the first shot and that was the second shot and his wife was in

The car and was trying to climb out and it was from the sixth floor of that window bloods on a pink Chanel dress as well and this man lives just outside Vancouver there was such a momentous moment in history and changed the course of so much so just you know first time

To Dallas and it was was the one thing I wanted to make sure that I saw while I was here then there are the people who have theories about what took place it’s pretty obvious the CIA had him killed you know oh so you believe in a conspiracy 100% there there was there’s

Too much evidence I’m of the professional opinion that Lee Harvey Oswell was the sole assassin Ferris Rock stool was a school boy in Dallas in 1963 he eventually became an FBI analyst and historian he believes there was only one killer the lingering mystery for him one

Thing that no one can answer to this day 60 years later is why Oswald didn’t um uh leave behind any sort of writings that would say this is why I did it he didn’t tell anyone uh his close friends Steven Fagan the curator at the Dallas Museum devoted to the assassination

Believes there will always be suspicions we do live in a conspiracy culture and while there certainly were conspiracy theories prior to 1963 the Kennedy assassination kind of crystallized that very distinctly I think American mindset that you know there’s got to be more to the story the government’s not telling

Us everything most likely came from the grassy n and this was most likely a conspiracy hundreds of thousands visit Del Plaza each year this week the numbers are expected to be larger than usual Steve fman for CBC News Dallas well the winter holidays will be a little less sweet this year in western

Requires sugar uh we going to have enough product for Christmas if we don’t have sugar to be able to do our products then we won’t last until February 138 workers at Rogers sugar refinery began striking on September the 28th key concerns included wages and a plan to

Shift the 135 year old plant to 24-Hour production Adrien soldera is president of the public and private workers of Canada Local 8 but again it’s that work life balance and you know having people work these long hours and spending more time at work than you are with your

Family JS kard is Vice President of Finance for Roger sugar in Montreal demand for sugar in Canada is growing Canada produces about 1.2 million tons of sugar a year Roger sugar Inc Atlantic are responsible for more than half of that so far the shortage is hurting Western Canadian businesses the most the

Vancouver plant is still operating but at a reduced capacity that’s translated into empty shelves at some grocery stores and a real concern for Bakers like Fraser who burns through 10 bags of icing sugar a week at this time of year yes so we’ve just pretty much gone to

Costco thrify Savon and I’ve loaded my car up I look really weird when I’m walking out with a full trolley full of icing sugar or just normal sugar um and but that’s the only way we can do it if we can’t get the icing sugar through our suppliers or the regular sugar through

Our suppliers we’re toast right now suppliers are limiting Bakers to two bags of sugar each delivery it’s like gut-wrenching breaks my heart Fraser is hoping the sugar shortage doesn’t bring her dream business to a Bitter End evat Bren CBC News Vancouver you’re listening to the world this weekend on CBC Radio I’m Stephanie

Scander Australia’s national cricket team hoists the IC Cricket World Cup trophy the Aussies beat host team India in six wickets to win the title Australian Captain Pat cumins I think that’s the Pinnacle of uh international cricket winning a one day World Cup especially over here in India in front

Of a crowd like this you only get a shot at it every four years but outside the Narendra Modi Stadium it was a more somber tone tens of thousands of India fans shuffled out of the stadium heads hung low India entered the final on a 10-game winning streak and was the

Favorite to win this is just sad like we’ve been unbe beautiful this entire tournament and this was just I’m just feeling numb right now like there’s no feeling I want to cry but there no tears it’s just numb Australia has now won the Cricket World Cup six times since the tournament started in

1975 that’s three times as many championships as any other national team to sports in this country now and tonight’s gray cup Showdown is a battle between two giant teams pitting East against West the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are playing the Montreal Alouettes for the CFL championship in Hamilton Ontario

The cbc’s Jamie stash is at tonight’s game and has followed both teams we spoke to him earlier so Jamie these two teams took very different roads to tonight’s game can you tell us a little about that Stephanie they sure did you have the Winnipeg Blue Bombers representing the West really you know

CFL royalty these days the team is making its fourth straight gray cup appearance the bombers really red through the regular season winning 14 of 18 games to earn it spot in this year’s gray cup Montreal a very different path at one point in the season this team was

Six and seven seemingly going nowhere they haven’t lost a game since knocking off the league best Toronto Argonauts last week in the Eastern Conference Final in Toronto to earn uh its place in the gray cup the franchise making its first appearance in more than a decade

So really on one side you have Winnipeg who no one surprised is here on the other side you have Montreal who has been surprising people all season long and you’ve been in Hamilton for a couple of days now in the leadup to this game what’s the atmosphere been like well

This is really always a celebration the week leading up to the great cup a celebration for Canadian football and for Canadian football fans people here in Hamilton who definitely would have liked to have seen their Hometown TI cats in the game welcome the rest of the

CFL Community I have to say the Winnipeg fans far outnumbering the Montreal AL West the bomber fans seemingly traveling well the atmosphere has been great all week kind of a friendly friendly rivalry to storied cfl’s football franchises battling this year for the 110th edition of the gray cup Stephanie thank you so

Shania Twain arriving by dog sled in 2017 but there’s also one show that was completely forgettable a few days ago someone on Reddit posed the question can we finally solve the 1999 halftime mystery out yes what he noticed is that Wikipedia lists the 1999 halftime act as a confusingly named group called The

Parabolics but with no explanation of who they were other Reddit detectives got to work could it have been a military band parah could be short for paratroopers my guess would be the cover band from a local Christian School Parable I was at that game first row 55

Yd line section 243 I think I have zero recollection the CBC broadcast of that TI cats Stampeders game ignores any halftime show going right into analysis what a 30 minutes of football for the Hamilton Tiger Cats so let’s join Steve CBC Vancouver reporter John ESP decided

To dive in I went to CBC archives and I asked around and they said we have no information about the parable eics whatsoever um CBC Sports uh they they said they went to the shot list of the the 1999 gray cup and had no reference I messaged Grant Lawrence of CBC music he

Said he had never heard of the band yeah uh my uh my searches have kind of been fruitless on finally back on Reddit a possible breakthrough one user remembers a competition of 20 High School dance teams and says the winner got to perform with a mange of CFL cheerleaders from at
