Michelle Gray says she’s afraid to get behind the wheel again after having her licence suspended for failing a cannabis saliva test in Nova Scotia, even though she passed a police administered sobriety test the same night.Gray has been using medical marijuana for almost eight years to treat multiple sclerosis and she plans to launch a constitutional challenge to the law and roadside test.“They should not be on the streets and used for testing cannabis impairment,” said Gray, who lives in Sackville. “I think the government legalized cannabis way too fast. I don’t think it was a well thought out plan.”Six months after legalization, her case illustrates some of the challenges with enforcement facing both police and cannabis users, and highlights the questions that continue to surround the use of technology in roadside tests.The Drager DrugTest 5000 remains the only technology approved by Ottawa to test a driver’s saliva for concentration of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.Einat Velichover, who manages drug and alcohol detection in Canada for Drager, said the saliva test was never designed to test for impairment.“Our device is there to really just identify whether there’s a presence of THC. It’s not meant to measure impairment and we never claimed that it does,” she said.“So really it’s just one tool of many that law enforcement utilize in order to assess impairment and road safety.”Velichover said that while she appreciates the concerns that have arisen, law enforcement needs to balance cannabis users’ rights with the importance of keeping roads safe.Justice Department spokeswoman Angela Savard said the Canadian Society of Forensic Science tests and evaluates technology then recommends it to the attorney general for consideration.If a driver fails the roadside test, the result can be used in developing “reasonable grounds” to believe that a drug-impaired driving offence has occurred and also give the officer grounds to investigate further, she said.“It is important to note that investigating drug-impaired driving is not exclusively dependent on a drug screener,” she said in an email.As of Oct. 1, there were more than 13,000 law enforcement officers trained in standardized field sobriety testing and 833 officers trained as drug recognition experts across Canada, she said. Further training is underway.Savard said the department expects more technology to be recommended and approved in the future, but couldn’t comment on ongoing evaluations.Some police departments are declining to use the saliva test.“For the most part, in British Columbia, police departments have not deployed it. Several departments have a Drager 5000 that we can use and test but we’re all a little bit wary,” said Chief Const. Mike Serr of the Abbotsford Police Department.Serr said many departments are waiting to get a better sense of the test’s value and are concerned charges could be thrown out if it is challenged in court.“We’re concerned on how that potentially could play out,” said Serr, who is also the co-chair of the drug policy committee with the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police.“It doesn’t give us the quantitative analysis so it really doesn’t provide us much extra beyond what a drug recognition expert can provide us with. So at this point, the practical uses of the tool haven’t really been proven to us.”In the meantime, he said anecdotal reports from departments suggest the increased training seems to be resulting in a slight increase in drug-impaired driving charges since legalization. In Abbotsford, 30 per cent of frontline police officers are now trained in standardized field sobriety testing and all members of the traffic unit are drug recognition experts.“That’s something that wasn’t done pre-legalization,” he said.But as impaired driving continues to be a reality, others say they want to see saliva testing tools used more often.Eric Dumschat, legal director for Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada, said the organization is hoping more technology gets approved and rolled out.“We had expected there would have been more devices approved by this point and hopefully in the longer run, the technology is able to be improved. In an ideal world, we would have the equivalent of the breathalyzer, but alcohol is a very simple molecule compared with THC,” he said.He said while testing bodily fluids is important to indicate recent use, the increase in sobriety and drug recognition training is better for identifying impairment and has been making roads safer.“In regards to enforcement, I think it’s going about as well as it can be,” he said.Amy Smart, The Canadian Press

Most recently, Opera Atelier’s production of Charpentier’s Medée was chosen to a part of the official Canada 150 celebrations in France.“It seems fitting,” says Pynkoski, “that Jeannette and I received a phone call from the Governor General’s office while we were in the Louvre researching for an upcoming Opera Atelier production.” Advertisement Facebook Login/Register With: Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Twitter
By Tiar Wilson, aptn National NewsThe smoke could be seen from far away.Even as people rushed to help the home was already engulfed in flames.Constable Tim Mason ran to help, “What do you think when you hear somebody say hey there’s babies inside, you know you have to get them out first instinct try get in.”The fire erupted Sunday afternoon as community members, including Joseph Wood, were leaving a nearby church.They scrambled to help.“Here in st. theresa everybody help one another no matter what”Inside the house are 15 month old Qualan Harper and 2 month old Errabella Harper.Just minutes before, their ten year old auntie Martha Harper was in the house when the fire started.“my little brother woke up first then i heard him crying, i went for my little brothers to get out first.”People threw snow inside the house desperately trying to control the flames.Cst. Mason jumped in the bedroom window looking for the children.“when you go like this right *using his hands like he’s bracing something* it was just sitting in front of me. that baby was crying.”Mason handed the baby to someone through the window.“then i thought i heard another baby cry you know, i was on my way back in *hand gesture pulling* when somebody yanked me out of the room out into the snow.”That’s when someone brought out a chainsaw.“it didnt really want to start. it was frozen”While one person tried to get it going, others chopped at the house with axes.When the chainsaw roared to life, rescuers cut a hole in the wall and felt around in the darkness for Errabella Harper.“there were two chairs lined up as a make shift bed, we kept pulling it but we didnt know the baby had already been dragged out it was the snow.”They rushed Errabella to the nursing station with a badly burned face.Joseph Wood says everyone was trying to save her. “we went over there the nursing station the nurses were all trying to bring her back alive”But the child was gone and another child is left fighting for her life.Fire officials say the the fire started in the chimney and likely the wood stove is the blame.The stove was the home’s only heat source and is a reality on many reserves across Canada.To make matters worse, the community’s fire truck was broken down at a nearby garage.The small home housed 8 people.Ashley Harper, the mother of the two infants is crushed by her loss.Report from Tiar Wilson email@example.com

The men, who worked for the WFP-run UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS), appeared to be in good health, the agency said. They were abducted by armed men on 13 January at a landing strip in Um Shalaya, 60 kilometres southeast of the West Darfur capital of El Geneina. “WFP is grateful to the Government of Sudan for its tireless efforts in securing the release of the three men who were seized while they were working to help the most vulnerable people in Darfur,” said WFP Regional Director Amer Daoudi in Khartoum. WFP said it worked closely with the Government of Sudan at all levels for the safe release of the three men, and added that it did not pay a ransom to secure their release.Last December three Latvian men working as helicopter aircrew for UNHAS in Darfur were freed after more than a month in captivity. UNHAS flies aid workers from the UN and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), as well as journalists and others, to some of the hardest-to-reach emergency operations around the world. It plays a vital role in accessing remote locations and in cases where insecurity prevents travel by road. 7 June 2011The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today confirmed the release of three Bulgarian crew members who were abducted in January while working for the agency’s air service in the strife-torn Darfur region of Sudan.
OTTAWA — The country’s telecom regulator is opening public consultations on whether customers are getting the Internet services they need and want.The CRTC will ask people what telecommunications services they consider necessary, what they rely on most and whether the cost of those services should be the same everywhere.The commission also wants to know what upload and download speeds consumers think they need.Surviving without Internet: B.C. town offline since November living like it’s 1990Support for BCE’s efforts to overturn CRTC Internet access ruling gains momentumCanadians hungry for pick-and-pay savings in 2016 — but broadcasters are bracing for the worstThe consultations follow hearings that resulted last year in new rules for TV service providers.Participants will be asked to fill out a survey and send it to the regulator by the end of next month.Focus groups will also be questioned in small communities, where the CRTC says a large percentage of the population has no or only limited access to telecommunications services.Public hearings on broadband services will be held beginning in April.

TURKEY’S PARLIAMENT AUTHORISED military operations against Syria on Thursday and its military fired on targets there for a second day after deadly shelling from Syria killed five civilians in a Turkish border town.For its part, Syria admitted it was responsible for the shelling that killed five people in Turkey and formally apologized for the deaths, a top Turkish official said.Deputy Prime Minister Besir Atalay said Syria has reassured the U.N. that “such an incident will not occur again.”The border violence has added a dangerous new dimension to Syria civil war, dragging Syria neighbors deeper into a conflict that activists say has already killed 30,000 people since an uprising against President Bashar Assad’s regime began in March 2011.Atalay said Parliament’s authorization was not declaration of war on Syria but gives Turkey the right to respond to any future attacks from Syria.“The bill is not for war,” Atalay said. “It has deterrent qualities.”Cross-border tensions escalated Wednesday after a shell fired from inside Syria landed on a home in the Turkish village of Akcakale, killing two women and three of their daughters and wounding at least 10 others, according to Turkish media.The bill Thursday opens the way for unilateral action by Turkey’s armed forces inside Syria without the involvement of Turkey’s Western or Arab allies. Turkey has used a similar provision to repeatedly attack suspected Kurdish rebel positions in northern Iraq.Still, Atalay said Turkey’s “main priority” was to “act together with the international community.”“That is why we called on NATO and the United Nations to take up the issue,” Atalay said.The NATO military alliance, of which Turkey is a member, met at an emergency session in Brussels and condemned the attack on Turkey. NATO demanded “the immediate cessation of such aggressive acts against an ally” and urged the Syrian regime to “put an end to flagrant violations of international law.”The Turkish response to the shelling was prompt — it fired salvos of artillery rounds deep inside Syria.Mustafa Guclu, a witness in Akcakale, said the Turkish military fired five rounds of artillery “after midnight” toward Syria and another round around 5 a.m. on Thursday.“I have not heard any more shelling since then,” he told the Associated Press.The Syrian mortar shell damaged the door and walls of a house in Akcakale, while shrapnel poked holes and shattered windows of neighboring houses and shops.Some residents of Akcakale abandoned their homes close to the border and spent the night on the streets. Others gathered outside the mayor’s office, afraid to return to their homes as the dull thud of distant artillery fire rumbled.Turks have grown weary of the burden of involvement in the Syrian conflict, which includes the hosting of 90,000 Syrian refugees in camps along the border.Yet Turkey is still loath to go it alone in Syria, and is anxious for any intervention to have the legitimacy conferred by a U.N. resolution or the involvement of a broad group of allies. Turkey is mindful in part of inconclusive ground missions, mostly in the 1990s, against Kurdish guerrillas based in northern Iraq, as well as the bitter lessons of being seen as an occupying power that are associated with the U.S.-led invasion in Iraq.Reaching deeper into history, Turkey is aware of Mideast sensibilities over Ottoman rule over much of the region.On a visit to Pakistan on Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov expressed his government’s concern over the escalation of tensions.Lavrov, speaking at a press conference in Islamabad, said Syria has assured Russia, an ally, that such an incident as the shelling that killed the Turks will not happen again.“It is of great concern for us,” Lavrov said. “This situation is deteriorating with every coming day.”Germany’s foreign minister, Guido Westerwelle, said NATO members agree on the need for solidarity but also on prudence in reacting to events on the Turkish-Syrian border.The Turkish retaliatory shelling and steps to authorize possible military intervention against Syira were the latest events to sharply escalate tensions between the two former allies.In June, Turkey reinforced its border with anti-aircraft missiles and threatened to target any approaching Syrian military elements after Syrian forces brought down a Turkish jet, killing its two pilots. Turkey said the plane was in international airspace, countering Syrian claims that it was in Syrian airspace.__Fraser reported from Ankara, Turkey.

MUMBAI: A suicide note left behind by Payal Tadvi, a doctor who ended her life after alleged harassment by her senior colleagues, has been recovered by the forensic department, advocate Gunaratna Sadavarte, said on Friday. Gunaratna Sadavarte is fighting Payal Tadvi’s case in the Bombay Civil and Sessions Court. Speaking to ANI, Sadavarte said: “Today, it has been proved that three accused doctors in the case were aware of the suicide note and tried to destroy it. The forensic department has confirmed that screenshot of the note has been recovered from Payal’s phone.” Also Read – National Herald case: Officer bearers of Congress were cheats, Subramanian Swamy tells court Advertise With Us The counsel said that the suicide note not only mentions the casteist abuses, but also the names the three accused senior women doctors, who have been arrested in the case. “Police have initiated probe under section 201 (destruction of evidence) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC),” said Sadavarte. Tadvi, who belonged to the Scheduled Tribe community, ended her life in her hostel room at BYL Nair Hospital here on May 22, allegedly after facing harassment from her seniors due to her caste.

By AFRO StaffThe founder of Baton Rouge’s African American history museum died of suffocation and her death was a homicide, a coroner ruled Monday, as residents of Louisiana’s capital city struggled to come to terms with the slaying of the well-respected, 75-year-old community leader.East Baton Rouge Coroner Beau Clark released preliminary autopsy results that show Sadie Roberts-Joseph was suffocated before her body was found in the trunk of a car Friday. The results indicated the beloved community leader died from “traumatic asphyxia, including suffocation.”Baton Rouge area law enforcement officials including BRPD Chief Murphy Paul, at lectern, announce the arrest of Ronn Jermaine Bell, 38, shown on monitor at right, Tuesday July 16, 2019 in the recent murder of community activist and Baton Rouge African-American History Museum founder Sadie Roberts-Joseph. (Travis Spradling/The Advocate via AP)Ronn Jermaine Bell, 37, a convicted sex offender, was taken into custody Tuesday on a charge of first-degree murder, according to ABCnews.com.ABC News also reported Bell was living in one of the homes Roberts-Joseph was renting out and it is believed he was several months behind in rent payments, police said. Authorities estimated Bell owed Roberts-Joseph $1,200.Roberts-Joseph founded the Baton Rouge African American Museum in 2001. It features a 1953 bus that visitors can board to learn more about the Baton Rouge bus boycott of that year. They can also learn about three different types of cotton grown in the museum’s garden, and learn more about African-American contributions in areas such as inventions and art.Denise Marcelle, a state representative and former member of the council that governs Baton Rouge, had known Roberts-Joseph for years. They worked together on Juneteenth celebrations which commemorate the end of slavery.“She was just a very likeable person and that is why the community is so outraged,” Marcelle said. “It’s really a shock to the entire Baton Rouge community. It’s just a shock.”Police said numerous leads came in from community residents and helped police identify and arrest Bell in the slaying,” ABCNews.com reported.“On behalf of the family of Sadie Roberts-Joseph we would like to express our sincere appreciation to all of the entities that came together in this tragedy to bring this person to justice,” Roberts-Joseph’s daughter, Angela Machen, said during a news conference earlier this week.“All my mother ever wanted was for this community to come together. It’s ironic that that happened in her death,” Machen said.The Baton Rouge Police Department announced Saturday that Roberts-Joseph’s body had been discovered Friday. Sgt. L’Jean Mckneely Jr. said Monday that she’d been discovered in the trunk of her own vehicle.“The Baton Rouge Police Department joins the community in mourning the loss of Ms. Sadie Roberts-Joseph. Ms. Sadie was a tireless advocate of peace in the community,” the department said in a Facebook post Saturday.“We had opportunities to work with her on so many levels. From assisting with her bicycle giveaway at the African American Museum to working with the organization she started called CADAV. (Community Against Drugs and Violence) Ms. Sadie is a treasure to our community, she will be missed by BRPD and her loss will be felt in the community she served,” the post said.###Associated Press Writer Rebecca Santana also contributed to this story.
News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | March 14, 2019 Researchers Create New Method for Developing Cancer Imaging Isotopes New method produces high-purity zirconium-89, a diagnostic radionuclide used to image cancerous tumors Prototype fluidic system for zirconium-89 purification. Image taken through a hot cell window at the Department of Radiology, University of Washington. Image courtesy of Matthew O’Hara, Pacific Northwest National LaboratoryMarch 14, 2019 — A team of researchers at the University of Washington announced they developed a new automated system for producing zirconium-89, a diagnostic radionuclide used for cancer tumor imaging.Ideal for cancer tumor imaging, zirconium-89 lasts long enough in the body to find tumors and be imaged using positron emission tomography (PET) scans. Producing this useful radionuclide requires commonly found low-energy cyclotrons. The researchers produced zirconium-89 by proton beam irradiation of yttrium metal foils at the university’s 11-MeV cyclotron. They then transported the foils to researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. The research team developed an automated dual column system that dissolved the foil targets and isolated the zirconium-89 from the dissolved yttrium target (and metal contaminants found in the yttrium metal). The process consistently generated a highly concentrated and pure solution of zirconium-89 that demonstrated excellent binding to deferoxamine, a radionuclide-binding ligand frequently used in tumor-targeting molecules. A patent has been applied for this novel purification method.As the zirconium-89 supply is currently meeting demand, this is not an isotope sold through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Isotope Program. However, this work, supported by the DOE Isotope Program, shows that zirconium-89 can be produced on lower energy (and more abundant) cyclotrons with a simple target design. The new automated approach could make high-quality batches more available and reduce exposure for radiation workers. Also, the approach offers a high chemical yield and low metal ion impurities, minimizing interference with tumor targeting.This work was funded by the Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of Nuclear Physics, Isotope Development and Production for Research and Applications subprogram. Funding was also provided by the National Institutes of Health. The researchers used the CT/Eclipse/111 cyclotron at the University of Washington.For more information: www.science.energy.govPublicationsJ.M. Link, K.A. Krohn, and M.J.
