Extra, Extra: Food Truck Hopes, Thousands of Cats, and Live-Tweeting Heart Surgery

Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not to miss.

  • We’ve had our hopes raised and then dashed so many times before. But maybe this time they will not be in vain: maybe this time, the City will act sensibly and decisively, and food trucks of all kinds will soon be free to roam the streets of Toronto, dispensing wonderfully diverse edible delights.
  • In 2011, 28,954 cats were registered with Toronto Animal Services. That is certainly a lot of cats, and if they began to commiserate with one another and then organize, the city could end up welcoming the most adorable overlords ever. But what kinds of cats can be found on the streets and in the houses of Toronto? The CBC reports that 43 different breeds were registered, and this infographic of furry cuteness breaks down the top ten.
  • What will you be doing at 8 a.m. tomorrow morning? Did you know that one of the things you could be doing at that time is following along as Sunnybrook Hospital live-tweets a coronary artery bypass graft? Obviously, we’re all hoping that the doctors and the tweeters are completely different sets of people with no overlapping responsibilities, and that everything goes extremely well.
