Clinical Trial Suggests Way to Fight Peanut AllergySo far, kids suffering from peanut allergies have no treatment options other than avoiding the legumes completely. The results of a new clinical trial may change that. Scientists have found that feeding allergic children small amounts of peanut protein every day, an approach known as oral immunotherapy, can actually help them lead a normal life.Avian Flu Concerns Shutter Poultry MarketsSign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)With human cases of H7N9 avian influenza piling up, Chinese authorities have ordered the closure of live poultry markets in three eastern cities in a bid to stem transmission of the virus.

Acid Treatment Could Provide Breakthrough Stem Cell TechniqueScientists have found a surprisingly simple way to turn mature cells back into a primitive state. Simply giving mouse blood cells an acid bath is enough to produce so-called pluripotent cells that can develop into any cell type in the body, they report this week. The remarkable transformation contradicts many assumptions about cell biology and may ultimately lead to new ways to treat disease and injuries.Antioxidants Could Increase Cancer RatesA lot of people take vitamins like A, E, and C thinking that their antioxidant properties will ward off cancer. Now, a new mouse study has shown that rather than fighting cancer, some antioxidants may actually increase the risk of cancer and even make tumors grow faster.How Farming Reshaped Our GenomesThe advent of farming 10,000 years ago changed human biology forever. Now, the discovery of an 8000-year-old skeleton in Spain reveals what European hunter-gatherers were like—dark-skinned, blue-eyed, unable to digest milk—and how they influenced the genomes of early farmers.

SHARE Uruguay, Argentina and Colombia qualified for next year’s World Cup on Tuesday after a dramatic last round of South American fixtures that also saw Peru clinch a playoff spot against New Zealand and Chile miss out completely.Brazil were fortunate enough to escape most of the drama, having already qualified as group winners, but they still had a say in who would join them in Russia next year.Argentina, finalists three years ago but outside the four qualifying spots going into their match in Ecuador, fell behind in the first minute but a Lionel Messi hat-trick guaranteed his side one of the three automatic berths still up for grabs.“Luckily, we reacted quickly after Ecuador scored,” Messi said after the celebrations in Quito had died down following Argentina’s 3–1 win. “Thank God, we fulfilled our objective,” he said.Uruguay also went behind at home to Bolivia, to an own goal from Gaston Silva after 24 minutes, but they forged ahead with two goals in each half to finish second in the 10-team group behind five-time World Cup winners Brazil.Martin Caceres, Edinson Cavani and two Luis Suarez strikes gave the home side a commanding lead before Diego Godin’s own goal completed the scoring in a 4–2 win for the hosts.Peru in play-offsA second-half goal from Paolo Guerrero kept Peru in with a chance of a first World Cup appearance since 1982 when his brilliant free kick in Lima cancelled out Colombia’s opener from James Rodriguez.Peru, unbeaten in their last six qualifiers under Argentina manager Ricardo Gareca, failed to secure the win that would have ensured automatic qualification but have the consolation of a home-and-away playoff against Oceania champions New Zealand.“To be in this position was one of our targets for the qualifiers,” Gareca said after the 1–1 draw. “There’s 180 minutes left. We know that it is difficult but we know that it is up to us.”Chile, Paraguay miss outFive-times champions Brazil had already qualified before their game against Chile in Sao Paulo but a 3-0 home victory saw the visitors drop from third to sixth in the standings, failing to even qualify for the inter-continental playoff.Three second-half goals, one from Paulinho and two from Gabriel Jesus, enabled the group leaders to extend their unbeaten run in the group to 17 games. “We finished in top spot with a great win against a strong team,” Jesus said. “We were focused.”The result marks the end of a brilliant run by the Chileans, who won the last two Copa America tournaments in 2015 and 2016 and qualified for the last two World Cups.“My soul is destroyed,” Arturo Vidal, the midfield dynamo who missed the match through suspension, wrote on social media. “Thanks boys, for everything, for all these years together giving our lives in every game.”Paraguay also missed out after they lost 1–0 at home to bottom side Venezuela when a victory would have seen them clinch the playoff berth instead of Peru.

Rashid Khan was the star of the show and his all-round performance floored Bangladesh as Afghanistan won by a massive margin of 136 runs in their final group match of the Asia Cup 2018.Rashid Khan had earlier scored a 32-ball 57 not out and then returned with figures of 2/13 with the ball and then run out debutant Abu Hider Rony in a remarkable fashion to well and truly celebrate his birthday on the cricket field.After this massive win at Abu Dhabi, Afghanistan will next take on Pakistan, who lost by eight wickets to arch-rivals India, in Abu Dhabi on Friday.Rashid also became Afganistan’s joint-highest wicket-taker as with 112 wickets from just 49 ODI matches. Mohammad Nabi is his partner at the top with 112 wickets in 103 matches. Rashid has taken less than half of the matches to be equal with Nabi and on a day, when his quick-fire fifty allowed Afghanistan back into the match.Bangladesh vs Afghanistan: As It Happened | ScorecardRight from the start of Bangladesh innings, they struggled in the chase of 256. Nazmul Hossain Shanto (7) was the first to fall off Mujeeb Zadran and Liton Das (6) soon followed him to leave Bangladesh reeling at 17/2.Bangladesh’s most experienced player Shakib Al Hasan entered at this point and started negotiating the Afghanistan bowlers.While Shakib looked in good touch, none of the others could hold the other end as Mominul Haque (9) and Mohammad Mithun (2) fell to pave way for Mahmudullah.Shakib and Mahmudullah added 36 runs for Bangladesh before Rashid Khan arrived to the scene and picked the big wicket of Shakib (32).advertisementAfter that it was only a matter of time as Bangladesh’s asking rate kept increasing and Afghanistan looked more and more dominating.Also read – Asia Cup 2018: Birthday boy Rashid Khan becomes Afghanistan’s joint-highest wicket-takerMosaddek Hossain (26*) dug deep till the very end, trying to stitch partnerships with Mahmudullah (27), Mehidy Hasan (4), Mashrafe Mortaza (0), Abu Hider (1) and Rubel Hossain (0) but could not save the day for Bangladesh.A brilliant bowling display from Afghanistan’s bowlers helps bundle up the Bangladesh innings for 119 in 42.1 overs. Afghanistan win by a significant margin of 136 runs #BANvAFG #AsiaCup2018 pic.twitter.com/Qgq8nNjzaEAsianCricketCouncil (@ACCMedia1) September 20, 2018Earlier in the day, Rashid smashed a brilliant unbeaten half ton right at the end of Afghanistan’s innings to propel them to a competitive total of 255 runs at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.Rashid shared a 95-run stand with Gulbadin Naib, who ended up not out at 42 runs. In the final 10 overs, the duo added 97 runs to Afghanistan’s total after they initially got together at 160/7.Rashid hit eight fours and one six in his superb innings while Gulbadin got five boundaries to his name. In the final over itself, Rashid smashed four boundaries and got to his half century with utmost ease and the Afghan crowd in Abu Dhabi was on its feet to celebrate their star cricketer.Afghanistan had won the toss and elected to bat and initially struggled against the disciplined Bangladeshi bowling.Afghanistan were reduced to 28/2 in the sixth over but Hashmatullah Shahidi steadied the innings. He stitched a 51-run partnership with opener Mohammad Shahzad (37) for the third wicket.Debutant pacer Abu Hider (2/50) opened the bowling for Bangladesh and he got his first ODI wicket in his fourth delivery. Afghanistan opener Ihsanullah (8) hit two consecutive fours before a big one from him landed into the hands of Mohammad Mithun at cover region.Abu Hider had his second wicket in the sixth over as Rahmat Shah (10) was completely beaten by a beautiful delivery which knocked off the stumps.It was at this point that Shahidi and Shahzad struck a partnership before Shakib broke the stand, which was threatening to get big. Shahzad was holed out at long on with Abu Hider taking a spectacular catch to give his senior team-mate the first wicket of the match.Afghanistan crossed the 100 mark exactly at the halfway stage but Shakib was only getting better as he bowled out Afghanistan captain Asghar Afghan (8), who was beaten by the flight of the delivery and drove the wrong line to see his stumps uprooted.Shakib then added another wicket to his kitty in the 34th over by sending Samiullah Shenwari (18) back to the pavilion to reduce Afghanistan to 239 for 5.Shahidi was holding one end together all this while but he also got out in the 38th over as he edged a Rubel Hossain delivery to the wicketkeeper for a soft dismissal.At 160 for 7 in the 41st over, it seemed that Afghanistan would struggle to even reach 200 but Rashid and Gulbadin had other ideas.advertisement(With PTI inputs)
Royal Challengers Bangalore lost the plot in the first six overs while defending 171 at the Wankhede stadium, felt Mumbai Indians all-rounder Hardik Pandya.Hardik Pandya backed up a superb batting effort by Mumbai Indians openers Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma as Mumbai chased down the target of 172 with 5 wickets in hand and an over to spare on Monday.Pandya ended up with 37 not out off 16 balls after de Kock top-scored with 40 and Rohit contributed with 28 runs.The openers put up a 72-run partnership in the first seven overs which lay a strong platform for the other batsmen in Mumbai to come in and have a go at the bowlers. 67 runs were smashed in the powerplay which led to RCB’s downfall as Pandya explained later.”Fantastic victory. Lucky with the start we got. Hats off to both the openers. It was not easy to bat on this wicket but they made it easy for us in the end. I felt RCB didn’t bowl well in the Powereplay and that’s where I thought they lost the game.”We began well and had the bowlers who hit the deck hard and got some purchase of the wicket. The way wicket started playing, even AB found it difficult but they both (AB and Moeen) played well. It’s always good to win at home. We are on the road and hopefully we can continue the winning momentum,” Hardik Pandya said after hitting the winning runs for Mumbai Indians.A 16 ball 37* from @hardikpandya7 sees @mipaltan over the line here at Wankhede pic.twitter.com/t2OsmcMclqadvertisementIndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 15, 2019RCB skipper Virat Kohli also felt that his bowlers could have put up a better performance in the first six overs after posted 171 for 7 while batting first.”We played a pretty good game I guess. With the ball, we weren’t that great in the first six overs but the guys fought hard in the middle overs and came back well.”At the end, we had to take the risk with the left-arm spinner, with two right-handed batsmen. Giving pace was risky, especially with a bit of dew. Unfortunately, it didn’t come off,” Kohli said after suffering his seventh loss in 8 matches this season.With this win, #MumbaiIndians are now on the No.3 position pic.twitter.com/vOcm6n76TjIndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 15, 2019The Mumbai batters backed up a superb performance by the bowlers who restricted the Royal Challengers to a below-par score.Lasith Malinga, who was coming back in the playing XI after being left out in the previous two games, finished with 4 for 31 from 4 overs.His bowling performance helped MI negate the AB de Villiers threat even as the former South African captain smashed 75 off 51 balls.Also Read | MI vs RCB Highlights, IPL 2019: Mumbai crush Bangalore by 5 wicketsAlso Read | IPL 2019: Mumbai Indians’ Alzarri Joseph ruled out of tournament due to shoulder injury
Transfers ‘Bale is a Man Utd player’ – Giggs backs Mourinho move for Real Madrid star Chris Burton 01:24 6/20/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Getty Transfers Manchester United Gareth Bale Real Madrid Primera División Premier League The Red Devils legend would like to a see a man he now manages with the Wales international side make his way to Old Trafford if interest is shown Gareth Bale is “a Manchester United player” and would excite supporters at Old Trafford if Jose Mourinho launches a summer raid for the Real Madrid forward, says Ryan Giggs.Having been linked with a return to England for some time, the former Tottenham star has seen transfer talk resurface of the back of comments made after a Champions League final victory over Liverpool.Having netted twice off the bench in a 3-1 win over Liverpool, Bale revealed that he will be weighing up his options this summer as he seeks to find competitive football “week in, week out”. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move United would be prepared to offer him those opportunities and Giggs – who is now the 28-year-old’s boss with Wales – believes a big-money move could be beneficial to all concerned.The Red Devils legend told the South China Morning Post: “I’d be a happy United fan, that’s for sure.“I think he’s a Man United player. I think the fans would love him. The fans would adore him but again, like I say, he’s at a club where he’s won three Champions Leagues so why would you leave?”This is not the first time that Bale has sparked exit talk in Madrid and he has opted to stay put in previous windows.He also has a change of manager to think about at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, with Julen Lopetegui having inherited the Blancos reins from Zinedine Zidane.That could influence his decision, with it possible that he will once again delay a move elsewhere in favour of sticking to a contract in Spain due to run until 2022.“I think there’s been talk for the last three years of Gareth moving. I think he’s at the right club but of course he wants to play,” Giggs added.“Last season he was frustrated and I can understand that but with a new manager I’m sure that he’ll wait to see how he does and see if he’s part of the new manager’s plans.”
Fox News probably should have double-checked before listing Steve Spurrier as “Head Game Coach” during their live interview.With college football less than a week away, former Gator quarterback and head coach Steve Spurrier is promoting his new book. The autobiography, Head Ball Coach, follows Spurrier’s childhood in Tennessee to his Heisman Trophy win, and then to playing and coaching in the pros to leading the Florida Gators to six SEC Championships and beyond. However, Fox News made quite a gaff, listing “Head Game Coach” as the introductory graphic during the broadcast.Steve Spurrier. Universally known as “Head Ball Coach” someone should tell the nerd running graphics at Fox News. pic.twitter.com/VUvbkZskOx— Patrick Shuck (@pshuck) August 31, 2016Note: Head Ball Coach is the title of Spurrier’s new autobiography…which he talked about during this interview.Florida fans and basically any person with a firm understanding of college football were quick to mock the obvious mistake.@pshuck @BobbyBigWheel idiots, everyone knows Bobby Petrino is the Head Game coach.— Sonar Jose (@SonarJose) August 31, 2016@pshuck @BobbyBigWheel wait does he coach the game with the basket ball ring or the one with the giant tuning forks at each end of the grass— Frank Mueller (@Muellercleez) August 31, 2016@pshuck no, it’s “head game coach.” i remember because he would always tell his players to put the ball right in the basketball ring— Aaron Montgomery (@ProbablyMonty) August 31, 2016Looks like someone at Fox News needs a comprehensive history lesson.Spurrier, now an ambassador for Florida’s athletics department, was the Gators’ starting quarterback for three seasons. He won the Heisman Trophy in 1966.After an NFL stint, Spurrier coached the Gators towards six SEC championships and one national title in 12 seasons. After resigning unexpectedly in 2001, he coached the NFL Washington Redskins until 2005, when he left to coach the South Carolina Gamecocks from 2005-2015.
College GameDay will be in Jacksonville this weekend for the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party—the annual rivalry game between Florida and Georgia—for the first time since 2005.Most probably didn’t see the Gators and Bulldogs facing off as a pair of one-loss, Top 10 teams back after UF lost to Kentucky for the first time in decades. Now, the game is pivotal for the SEC East race.Based on the schedule, it was the most obvious choice for GameDay this weekend. Next weekend’s episode location probably won’t have much drama behind it either.In all likelihood, College GameDay will be in Baton Rouge for LSU vs. Alabama in Week 10.The No. 4 Tigers and No. 1 Crimson Tide are each on bye this weekend, making a virtual guarantee that we’ll have a battle of Top 5 programs on Nov. 3.For the 8th-straight season, #LSU and Alabama will meet in @CBSSports’ primetime slot. Details: https://t.co/Nuqt2JK7Ni pic.twitter.com/nYZ18fjxRL— LSU Football (@LSUfootball) October 22, 2018The game is slated for an 8 p.m. ET kick, making it one of those vaunted night games at Death Valley. The game is on CBS, but that won’t stop ESPN from making the call.There are a few other enticing options. West Virginia at Texas and Penn State at Michigan are both match-ups of big ranked programs. Still, they pale in comparison to the SEC West rivalry this year.Alabama-LSU was the host of GameDay two years ago, last time it was in Baton Rouge. Lee Corso made LSU his headgear pick, but Alabama won 10-0.Alabama-LSU was the third ever match-up to host College GameDay, back in 1996. Corso picked the Tide to win that game at LSU, and was correct. Overall, the match-up has played host to the show nine times. Alabama is 7-2 in those games.
BOCA RATON, FL – SEPTEMBER 1: Head coach Lane Kiffin of the Florida Atlantic Owls throws the ball prior to the game against the Navy Midshipmen on September 1, 2017 at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Florida. (Photo by Joel Auerbach/Getty Images)Lane Kiffin isn’t one to keep his opinions to himself, and although the college football season is over, the head coach of Florida Atlantic gave the sports world another interesting message to dissect.Once the national championship went final between Clemson and Alabama, an old take from ESPN went viral.The opinion piece from ESPN criticized Clemson’s decision to hire Dabo Swinney. After all, it was a risky decision to promote the wide receivers coach to the lead position.Fast forward to 2019 and Clemson is undeniably one of the best programs in the entire country.Swinney has won two national titles, several coaching awards and has turned the Tigers into the team to beat in the ACC.Now that Swinney is being considered as one of the top coaches in all of football, Kiffin decided to poke some fun on Twitter. In a short but subtle message to ESPN, he laughed at the article that bashed Clemson’s coaching hire in 2008.Here is the tweet:?♂️ ?♂️ ?♂️! @espn pic.twitter.com/T2gg03N77J— Lane Kiffin (@Lane_Kiffin) January 12, 2019Kiffin isn’t afraid to make bold statements or receive backlash from his critics. Nonetheless, it’s hard to imagine that fans will get angry over him simply trolling another media outlet.Besides, Kiffin probably didn’t mind watching the Crimson Tide fall short in the biggest game of season.
New Delhi: Delhi Police on Monday claimed to have arrested four persons who were planning to commit burglary in a gold finance company in North West Delhi’s Shalimar Bagh area.

VANCOUVER – Norsat International Inc. (TSX:NII), the Vancouver tech firm at the centre of duelling acquisition bids, says China-based Hytera Communications has matched a US$67.3 million rival takeover offer from an American fund manager.Hytera, which manufactures radio transceivers and radio systems, made its friendly takeover offer for Norsat last year and received clearance under the Investment Canada Act this month.But Privet Fund Management LLC — a U.S. company that already owns 17.6 per cent of Norsat’s equity — emerged with a rival bid this week that was 25 cents per share above Hytera’s offer of US$11.25.Although Hytera has now raised its offer to US$11.50 per share and amended the break fees in line with Privet’s bid, Norsat says there’s no assurance that the transaction will get all necessary approvals and be completed.Hytera’s proposal has sparked a heated political debate over national security risks.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said this week that the U.S. was consulted before Industry Canada gave its approval early in June. But Norsat says it also needs approval from the federal government’s industrial technologies office.Norsat announced Friday that its previously adjourned shareholders meeting will resume next Thursday in Richmond, B.C.
OTTAWA – Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer welcomed the newest member of his caucus on Wednesday, saying Richard Martel’s byelection victory on Monday is a harbinger of things to come.Martel, who won the Quebec riding of Chicoutimi-Le Fjord, joined a caucus meeting, where he was presented with a personalized blue jersey sporting a large, white “C.”He won won 52.7 per cent of the vote, more than 5,000 votes ahead of Liberal Lina Boivin, who took 29. 5 per cent. The NDP and Bloc Quebecois candidates captured just 8.7 per cent and 5.6 per cent respectively, while the Green candidate collected 3.1 per cent.“We’ve shown Canadians that, when we have a strong message and when we stick to our principles, Conservatives can win anywhere,” Scheer said in welcoming Martel.The leader’s comments were met with standing ovations and cheers from the caucus.“Someone else got a clear message Monday night. That person is Justin Trudeau. The message that was sent is that Canadians are tired of his failures on so many different issues,” said Scheer, pointing to the government’s decisions to run deficits and buy Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline, as examples.Scheer said Trudeau has left Canada unprepared to deal with the threat of a major trade dispute with the United States.“President Donald Trump has made it very clear he wants to move Canadian jobs to the United States. There’s no reason why Justin Trudeau should be helping him.”Martel told caucus he’s proud to join them in the House of Commons and thanked Scheer for his support during the campaign.The byelection was triggered by the resignation of rookie Liberal MP Denis Lemieux. Chicoutimi-Le Fjord marks the governing party’s first byelection defeat in a Liberal-held riding since Trudeau became leader in 2013.
TORONTO – The case of a man facing eight first-degree murder charges following an investigation into the disappearances of men with ties to Toronto’s gay village returns to court today.The remains of eight men were found at a Toronto home where 66-year-old Bruce McArthur worked as a landscaper.The remains of seven men were recovered from planters at the property early in the investigation, but police had struggled to find any connected to a man who disappeared in 2012.Police said in July that his dismembered remains had been recovered from a ravine behind the same property.Acting Insp. Hank Idsinga said at the time that the current evidence in the case suggested there weren’t any more alleged victims.Idsinga said investigators were still sifting through tips from Canada and abroad, and analyzing cold cases and missing persons’ reports.

The RCMP have not denied this or the possibility that one person could be responsible for all four murders.“Certainly it is a consideration and a possibility that’s being explored,” said Mary Schlosser, communications advisor for Edmonton RCMP. “These are high priority files and the investigators are working on them.”She also said it’s possible that given the close proximity of where the remains were found, the RCMP may be conducting more searches for other bodies in the area.Browers’ family waited a long time for answers in her disappearance and issued a statement expressing relief to have finally learned what happened.“While we are saddened to have confirmation that Delores’ remains have been found, there is a sense of thankfulness as well. We loved Delores and are grateful to have some closure,” the statement read.“While we are grieving with some sense of relief, we know there are many families who have yet to find the answers they are seeking.”Bernard’s family is still waiting for answers.Bernard was found dead shortly after her body had been set on fire. She was the mother to six boys and struggled with an addiction to cocaine. Bernard also worked in the sex trade in Edmonton to support her habit.Her sister Caroline Bernard remembers her as “the best sister anyone can have” and expressed sorrow for Delores’s family.“That’s painful…I hope the other families that are mourning their loss- I hope they stay strong and remember the good things about their lost loved one,” said Caroline Bernard. “I hope they catch the bastard (who did it).”Ballentyne was mother of four when reported missing in April 2003.Ballentyne also struggled with a drug addiction and sold her body for money on the streets of Edmonton.In July 2003 her badly decomposed body was found in a field in Leduc County.Tuccaro, of Fort Chipewyan, was last seen getting into an unknown man’s vehicle during a visit to Edmonton in August 2010.Tuccaro was also a mother to a 14-month-old son when she disappeared.A group of horseback riders discovered her skull in September 2012.No one has yet been charged in any of the four women’s deaths. Over the years there have been some leads and investigators have at times believe they came close to solving these crimes.According to court documents, the RCMP at one time believed Bernard and Ballantyne were victims of the same killer.In 2007, Thomas Svekla, of Edmonton was charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of two Edmonton street workers. However, he was only convicted of second-degree murder in the death of one of them and is now serving a life sentence.Syekla was also considered a suspect in several other homicide investigations including those of Bernard and Ballantyne.In 2012, the RCMP released a cell phone recording of Tuccaro and an unidentified man who was in her company when she disappeared in the hopes that someone would recognize his voice.Then in 2013, the RCMP put up giant billboards in Leduc featuring her image with the slogan “Have you heard the voice?” further hoping that it help them to find out what happened to her. The billboards have since been removed.There are two common trends in the killings that apply to all four women: they were all Indigenous and they were all hitchhiking.Hitchhiking is a common way to get around in a lot of Aboriginal communities, however, the RCMP said it’s considered high-risk behavior when done in an urban setting.“One of the messages we are trying to get out is getting into a car with someone you don’t know is not a good idea. Hitchhiking is really high risk behaviour because it makes you vulnerable,” said Schlosser.Julie Kaye, director of community engaged research and assistant professor of sociology at Kings University in Edmonton said this circumstance does arouse suspicion about the possibility of a serial killer on the loose.“How can it not?” said Kaye.After all, Canada has had serial killers before.“When you see it’s not the first time that we’ve had serial killers in this way in Canada,” she said while referencing notorious B.C. murderer Robert Pickton who targeted a large amount of Indigenous women who worked in the sex trade.However, she went on to say that regardless of whether or not a serial killer is involved there are broader questions to be addressed. That is, the long-standing issue of missing and murdered Indigenous Women in Canada and the targeting of Indigenous women for these types of crimes reflective of the broader pattern seen across the country.“It’s horrific and another example of the disproportionate violence that Indigenous women face and especially Indigenous women involved in the sex industry,” said Kaye. “They’re not consenting to violence or harm just because they’re working in the sex industry.”The tragedy of the loss of all of these women will not be forgotten until justice is served, if the Stolen Sisters and Brothers Awareness Movement (SSBAM) has anything to do with it.The Edmonton based grassroots organization has been working with the victims’ families to provide support and to assist in raising awareness to help solve the murders.“I think the fact that these were Indigenous women kind of verifies what we’ve thought all along,” said April Wiberg of SSBAM. “When women are targeted to be victims of violence there is a racial element involved… If they had not visibly been Aboriginal would they still be alive today?”firstname.lastname@example.org

Economist delivers potential solutions to Canada Post’s troubles in new study by Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 11, 2016 2:00 am MDT Last Updated Feb 11, 2016 at 9:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CALGARY – A new study is delivering some potential solutions to Canada Post’s woes, including a recommendation that postage rates should be higher in rural areas than urban ones.The paper by the School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary paints a grim picture for the Crown corporation under the status quo: the number of letters delivered dropped by nearly a quarter between 2006 and 2013 and is expected to keep falling. The rise in parcels sent to online shoppers hasn’t been enough to offset the decline.Meanwhile, the number of addresses in Canada is rising by nearly a quarter million a year.Canada Post charges the same prices to all customers, even though delivery in urban areas is cheapest.Philippe De Donder, the study’s author, said that results in “cross subsidies” — urban households essentially shouldering the cost delivering to rural areas.“We think that for a market to work well, you need to have prices which are in line with the cost of production,” said De Donder, who is with the Toulouse School of Economics in France and has researched postal systems elsewhere in the world.“And so if you sell different products and one product costs twice as much, there is no reason why the price of this product should be the same. The price should be twice as much as the other product.”Although De Donder said Canada Post should have more power over pricing, he’s not advocating for unfettered freedom either. He said there should be an independent regulator to impose caps on prices, so that the cost to consumers doesn’t get so out of hand that they stop using the mail service.As for how well that proposal would go over in rural Canada, De Donder said sees two scenarios unfolding.One is that people who choose to live in less populated parts of the country accept that they should bear some of the additional costs for mail delivery. Or, the government can make those customers whole through tax rebates or some other mechanism.“This way, it’s very, very transparent. What economists don’t like about playing with prices to redistribute is it’s totally not transparent at all,” said De Donder.De Donder said that while immediate privatization to Canada’s postal service may not be the solution, he recommends introducing more free-market competition in the sorting and transportation of mail.In 2013, Canada Post announced plans to phase out door-to-door delivery in a bid to cut costs and install community mailboxes instead. Shortly after taking power in October, the Liberal government put that process on hold, meaning some households have seen their service unchanged while others have made the switch.In his paper, De Donder said one scenario could be an extra fee for door-to-door service.“One could imagine offering a menu of contracts to recipients, with a higher price (in the form of a yearly membership fee, for instance) for door-to-door delivery, and a lower (or nil) price for delivery to community mailboxes.”Follow @LaurenKrugel on TwitterNote to readers: This is a corrected story; An earlier version had the incorrect spelling of the author’s first name
Ticket sales for the upcoming Ohio State men’s basketball season, originally scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. Tuesday, have been postponed because of “technical difficulties,” said Brett Scarbrough, senior director of ticketing for OSU. The e-mail informing students of the launch of ticket sales was sent Monday morning, but a significant number of students did not receive the information. “We realized the problem this (Tuesday) morning that the e-mails had not broadcast,” Scarbrough said. “It had sent about 49,000 e-mails at the point where we made the decision to postpone the on-sale.” He said that makes up about 70 percent of the e-mails that were going to be sent. Once the e-mails were stopped, officials realized the problem. “Specifically it relates to how the e-mail servers at both ends of the pipeline are talking to each other and allowing the flow of e-mails to come through,” Scarbrough said. Shortly after 4 p.m., the athletic department sent out a press release stating, “Tickets were supposed to go on sale today, but technical difficulties caused the sale date to be postponed.” Other efforts to inform students included a tweet by Assistant Athletic Director of Communications Dan Wallenberg that read, “Student tickets for Ohio State men’s basketball will go on sale at 4 p.m. next Tuesday, Oct. 12. Sale today was postponed-technical issues.” Despite the efforts, some students did not hear of the change. “I still signed on at (4 p.m.), still not knowing it was even postponed,” said Jake Schaurer, welcoming director for the OSU Sportsmanship Council. A message on the university website informed Schaurer of the delay, but he never got the initial e-mail announcing that ticket sales were beginning. “I was fortunate to have contacts that are involved in athletics that told me it was going on at (4 p.m.), but I would have had no way to know otherwise,” he said. Those contacts included the student seating group Block “O.” “We did a reminder … to Block ‘O’ members about the availability of the tickets,” said Josh Daenens, president of the organization. “It really had nothing to do with the athletic department.” The university is taking the time to work out the server problems, officials said. “Instead of 24 hours or 48 hours,” Scarbrough said, “we wanted to make sure there was plenty of time to get the servers in working condition.” Chelsea Castle and Zack Meisel contributed to this story.

The Hungarian vice-champions will let some players to leave as they don’t have place under the “roof”, and one of them is French left back William Accambray.The 30 years-old shooter came in summer 2017 to Veszprem, but Achille tendon injury didn’t give him a lot of chance to show what he can.On his position are also Momir Ilic, Borut Mackovsek and Iman Jamali, so it’s clear that there is no chance to see him in some important role after such a tough injury. He is loaned to famous Slovenian team.But, his new team needs experience and shooting potential. RK Celje Pivovarna Lasko stayed without Daniel Dujshebaev at the start of the season, surprisingly, when he left to Kielce. Now, Accambray will be more than useful addition to the squad of Tomaz Ocvirk, who has Drasko Nenadic and Josip Sarac on the same position.Some reconstruction of “Real Madrid” began…source: delo.si
