Zayn Malik Cries At Final One Direction Concert

(1) Comments | Posted March 27, 2015 | 3:57 PM

Zayn Malik cried before his fans did.

The departing member of One Direction appears teary-eyed in Vine videos that have emerged from his last concert with the group in Hong Kong on March 18.

But despite all the rumours this week that had him leaving the group's tour because of cheating or stress, it appears the singer may just be looking out for himself.

In an interview with the U.K.'s Sun that took place six hours after he left the group, Malik said he was quitting because he felt he was trying to "do something that I wasn't happy doing for a while, for the sake of maybe other people's happiness.

"It's not that I've turned my back on them or anything, it's just that I just can't do that anymore because it's not real to me," he said.

Malik announced his departure from the group on its Facebook page earlier this week, saying that he wants to be a "normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight."

Wild Lynx Called With 'Kitty Kitty' In Terrace Bay, Ont.

(14) Comments | Posted March 26, 2015 | 12:05 PM

You wouldn't call a cougar "kitty kitty," would you?

So why a lynx?

Beth-Ann Colebourne apparently couldn't help herself when she spotted a wild feline in Terrace Bay, Ont. on Tuesday.

A video posted to YouTube shows the cat walking calmly at an outdoor mall as people watch it from close by. Colebourne can be heard calling the animal to her and saying "kitty kitty."

Cute though the lynx is, calling out "kitty kitty" is probably one of the last things you should do when you see one.

It is, after all, a relative of the cougar and the bobcat. And certain breeds have been known to attack humans.

So, you know, keep your distance!

This GIF Shows How Much Toronto Grew In 28 Years

(10) Comments | Posted March 25, 2015 | 2:46 PM

Toronto: city on the grow.

That's the best way to describe Hogtown when you look at a GIF showing just how much the city expanded between 1984 and 2012.

The GIF, which comes courtesy of Google, shows development spreading north with plenty of momentum.

The site used Landsat images to produce some astonishing animated time-lapse GIFs as part of a tool that demonstrates how different parts of the world have changed over the course of almost three decades. Introduced in 2013, the tool was developed in partnership with the U.S. Geological Survey, NASA and Time magazine, as part of Google's "Timelapse" project.

You can check it out for yourself right here, and see how other cities in Canada, and around the world, have grown in the same period.
