Your morning news roundup for Wednesday January 2nd, 2008:

Not feeling so hot today? Me neither. But hopefully your year started off better than his (public regurgitation alert - you've been warned).

2008 Toronto saw its first born arrive just 4-seconds after midnight, and (unrelated) first killed about 18h later. A 14-year old is dead, a 17-year old arrested, and a 2-day old baby warming the lives of new parents.

I'm not sure why this is news, but 680news points to a local celebrity psychic's predictions for 2008. Noteworthy Toronto-area predictions include a bridge collapse, a hurricane that reaches us, and a tragedy that involves Niagara Falls' Maid of the Mist. I'm not really wondering why many of her predictions from 2007 didn't occur (such as the cure for acne, the US invasion of Cuba, and terrorists using dogs and potatoes to kill thousands).

If you haven't entirely given up on humanity's chances of cleaning and greening our world, have a look at Green Living Toronto's list of New Year's resolutions to learn how easy it is to actually make a difference.

Toronto the megacity is 10 years old. Many aren't sure if they're supposed to celebrate the amalgamation, or take the opportunity to whine about all of its failings.

A free, public concert tribute to the recently passed jazz legend Oscar Peterson is set for January 12th at Roy Thomson Hall.
