HOUR ONE

Customers who want to continue receiving home delivery because they expect to be unable to access their mail from community mailboxes will require a doctor’s note. But the agency expects few customers will need such notes, because other solutions can be found to accommodate their needs. Canada Post announced last December it would be phasing out home delivery over the next five years to the one-third of Canadian households that still get their mail delivered to their home. Canada Post says residents in rural areas will require a doctor's note for home delivery if they believe they will not be able to make it to their community mailboxes.

Today’s Celebrity Birthday’s Actor Ben Affleck is 42, Singer Joe Jonas of The Jonas Brothers is 25, Actress Jennifer Lawrence from the “The Hunger Games'' is 24.

The popularity of electronic cigarettes is taking off even though we don't entirely know if there will be any long term side effects. Health Canada hasn't yet approved a business that sells e-cigs containing nicotine. Our Kevin Martel tells us that's not stopping some stores in Regina. Where do you stand should we leave e-cigs alone or ban and treat them like actually cigarettes?

Cheap Smartphones and tablets have put Web-ready technology into more hands than ever. But the price of Internet connectivity hasn't come down nearly as quickly. And in many rural areas, high-speed Internet through traditional phone lines simply isn't available at any price. McDonald's has 12,000 Wi-Fi-equipped locations in the U.S., and Starbucks has another 7,000. Together, that is more than the roughly 15,000 Wi-Fi-enabled public libraries in the country.

Film soundtracks usually don’t hit #1 on the Billboard Top 200, but when they do the soundtracks at least have original songs. This one didn’t.” Guardians of the Galaxy” has a song list that is pulled entirely from hits reaching back to the 1960s and 1970s.

HOUR TWO

Robin Williams was in the early stages of Parkinson's disease when he was found dead on Monday, according to his widow Susan Schneider. Schneider broke her silence to address rumors of possible financial issues and questions about Williams sobriety started to circulate. News of the illness came as plans for a "private funeral" to be attended by family and friends were revealed the same day. Fans will have an opportunity to mourn the performer at a comedy benefit at the Throckmorton Theatre, but details have not been confirmed yet.

This morning’s Talk Shot is brought to you by John Gormley Live and his talks about e-cigarettes and vaping.

A Surrey, B.C. man is straining the limits of BC's ID guidelines, saying it s his religious right to wear a colander on his head for his driver’s licence photo. Obi Canuel is an ordained minister in the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. He says the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia is denying him the right to wear his religious headgear for his driver’s licence photo. The ICBC told Canuel he couldn’t wear the colander for the photo last fall, when he tried to have his licence renewed.

The temperature is on the rise again today. It's hot enough today that Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for much of the southern part of the province. The health risks are greatest for older adults, young children, people with chronic illnesses such as breathing difficulties and homeless people. The temperature is set to hit 32, but hot humid conditions will push humidex values into the 40's this afternoon.

Robin Williams' daughter Zelda has quit social media after recieving taunts from Internet trolls. Apparently some people can't let a grieving daughter be. The 25-year-old abandoned her Twitter and Instagram accounts Tuesday after saying at least two people were sending her Photoshopped images of her father's dead body and other disturbing messages.

A mother and her children were kicked out of a restaurant after she changed a diaper at the table. It happened at Brother's Pizza Express located in the 100 block of Cypresswood Drive. Sowers argued that no one saw her change the diaper. Her family's food was brought out in "to go" containers and they were asked to leave. Sowers filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. The restaurant employees stand behind their decision.

Police say a 14-year-old boy was living undetected in a 24-hour Walmart south of Dallas for a few days after running away from his aunt's. Store employees eventually discovered him and the two living quarters he'd carved out behind boxes along the aisles of the store. We've all thought of running away, even as grownups. If you could hide out in one place where would it be?

HOUR TWO

Hundreds of people were out last night for Market Under the Stars, Perfect weather, and all their attention was turned, for about 10 minutes to the main stage. Last night there was a celebrity poutine eating contest. Utensils were drawn from a bucket, People cheated, Ultimately, one dude won. It was interesting (and stomach churning to watch). If there was an eating contest you'd kick butt at, what would it be?

Tonight, he will perform the very last concert at Candlestick Park in San Fransisco. 49,000 fans. 36 semi trailers. And a huge library of music to choose from to say farewell to the very last place the Beatles played live in 1966. It's been one year since Sir Paul McCartney took to the stage here in Regina at Mosaic Stadium. For some people it was the biggest concert of their lives and for some of our hosts here at CJME, it was the interview of a lifetime.

Edward "Chip" Sarafin, a backup senior offensive lineman for Arizona State University, has come out publicly as gay. He is the only known publicly out player in major college football.

Plenty of talk right now when it comes to the Riders defence. That's especially true of the defensive line and defensive backs. But as the Green Zone's Joel Gasson tells us the second line of defence is quietly going about business. Kickoff is at 5pm on Saturday against Montreal at Mosaic Stadium. Green Zone pregame coverage starts at noon with Game Day With Wray.

Last night marked a fourth night of protests in the streets of the community of Ferguson, Missouri in the suburbs of St. Louis. The reason the shooting of an unarmed young black man named Michael Brown by police on the weekend.

At six hours and 37 minutes, and 19 innings, it was the longest game in Blue Jays history both in terms of duration and the number of innings. It was the second straight extra inning walk off victory for the Blue Jays after the Tigers won the series opener on Friday night by scoring three runs in the ninth to win 5-4.

There is another roller coaster rescue this time in Maryland. 24 people were stranded near the top of a ride at Six Flags America. It took about five hours yesterday to pull down 17 adults and seven children from The Joker's Jinx roller coaster. Luckily, the riders were sitting upright. A few had cramps, back pain and dehydration, but no one was hurt.

One Man’s bad day turned into a lessoned turned for a cranky child at Burger King. A screaming child waiting in line with his mom finally got under the skin of the gentlemen standing before them in line. The child was screaming and swearing for pies and to teach him a lesson, the man bought up EVERY pie in the restaurant.

It looks bad police say there's no evidence that he did it on purpose. Three-time Nascar champion Tony Stewart did not compete in yesterday's Cheez-It 3-55 Nascar race because he hit and killed another driver while competing in a dirt-track race in Upstate New York on Saturday. Kevin Ward Jr. was killed while competing in a 25-lap dirt-track race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park Ward was rushed to hospital but was dead when he got there.

Today most of us spend hours a day leaping between different websites looking for information. All of those billions of pages that are now publicly available started with just one. 23 years ago yesterday, Internet inventor Tim Berners-Lee introduced the World Wide Web (WWW) project and it went live to the world. Up until that point, the Internet was used for sending information between individual computers. Are we better or worse off for having the web?

One might assume that sexting would peak somewhere around the witching hour: after the sun sets, when the moon is high, and people feel freaky enough to express weird things that they want to do around each other.

After making $2,000 bail and a court date in Gatineau set for Oct. 6th, Smith was sent back to Regina by the team and they are saying they're unsure of his future with the team.

Hollywood’s bias to female leads has never been more apparent than now. With ladies playing the lead in Lucy, Maleficent, these have been dominating the box office. Reporters asked Marvel why they have chosen to not back a female superhero and all Marvel could say was they are working on it. Sony on the other hand has announced to bring to the big screen a female from the Spiderman universe to be the leading lady.

So when push comes to shove will those here take the work and the money that comes with it?

We bring you the latest from the Ukraine after Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was reportedly shot down by rebel soldiers. Russian President Vladimir Putin blamed Ukraine for the downing, saying it was responsible for the unrest in its Russian-speaking eastern regions — but did not accuse Ukraine of shooting the plane.

The suggestion has been that MH17 was shot down by either Russian air defense systems along the Ukraine border, or by pro-Russian separatists with a radar-guided surface to air missile system. Jalopnick - one of the many Gawker news blog sites says it's not unreasonable considering at least three Ukrainian military aircraft have been shot down out of the sky in the last few days. Could Someone Have Mistaken This For A Military Aircraft?

What we know about the Malaysian Airlines flight 17 was shot down yesterday over eastern Ukraine. All 298 people on board are dead - including one Canadian. Ukrainian intelligence has released an audiotape they say proves separatists are behind the strike. Pro-Russian separatists, Ukraine or Russia - no one is taking responsibility for shooting the flight down. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko calls the loss of the plane over Donetsk a "terrorist action". US president Barack Obama has offered support to Ukraine to help with the investigation. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has extended his condolences to the families of the victims.

Thunderstorm watches and warnings swept across parts of southern and central Alberta on Thursday. Calgary was under a thunderstorm watch for most of the afternoon.
