Excerpts from the article:

More than 270 Indonesian election staff are alleged to have died from fatigue-related illnesses, after the world's third biggest democracy hit the polls earlier this month.

An estimated six million election workers were involved in the election on April 17, which was billed as one of the most complicated single-day ballots ever undertaken.

For the first time, Indonesia held its presidential and legislative elections on the same day, with around 192.8 million people across the archipelago's 17,000 islands eligible to vote in more than 800,000 polling stations.

As of Saturday night, 272 election officers were dead and another 1,878 were sick after helping to administer the election, reported CNN Indonesia, citing data provided by the country's election commission (KPU).

Excerpts from the article:

US Navy Rear Adm. John Ring, the commander at Joint Task Force - Guantanamo, has been relieved of duty "due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command," a press release from the Department of Defense said.

US Army Brig. Gen. John Hussey has been designated acting commander, according to the release. Hussey was currently serving as the deputy commander.

"This change in leadership will not interrupt the safe, human, legal care and custody provided to the detainee population," the press release said.

Col. Amanda Azubuike, spokeswoman for Southern Command, told the New York Times that the decision to remove Ring from his command had nothing to do with a recent media visit hosted at the base. She told CNN he was relieved of command after a monthlong investigation that began in March.

Excerpts from the article:

The Catholic Church in Sri Lanka urged the government on Monday to crack down on Islamic extremists with more vigour "as if on war footing" in the aftermath of the Easter bombings.

Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, the archbishop of Colombo, said the church may not be able to stop people from taking the law into their own hands unless the government conducts a more thorough investigation and does more to prevent further attacks.

The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the Easter attacks, which killed more than 250 people, and investigators are looking into the extent of the extremist group's involvement with the local radicalized Muslims who carried out the suicide bombings.

Excerpts from the article:

Dozens of protesters rallied at a hog farm in British Columbia's Fraser Valley on Sunday in a response to a video that activists said showed sick and dead pigs packed into cramped crates at the facility.

About 200 people arrived on buses to Excelsior Hog Farm in Abbotsford at around 6 a.m. About 50 snuck into a barn while the others stood outside wearing black shirts that read "Meat the Victims" and singing.

In the afternoon, police led the barn occupants out of the facility, took their information and arrested one person for mischief and break and enter. Officers will continue a criminal investigation of those who entered the barn, said Abbotsford Police Sgt. Judy Bird.

The whole article:

A rare deep-water dolphin stranded on a Florida beach and later euthanized had a stomach full of trash.

Biologists said they found two plastic bags and a shredded balloon during a necropsy of the young rough-toothed dolphin after it washed ashore in Fort Myers Beach earlier this week.

Animal experts said the rough-toothed dolphin was emaciated and in poor health. Florida Today reports such a young dolphin should have still been with its mother but somehow wound up far from her deep-water home. Biologists and bystanders worked to help the struggling animal, but wildlife official decided to euthanize the dolphin on-site.

Scientists are still trying to find a cause of death but the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said the finding highlights the need to reduce single-use plastic and to not release balloons into the environment.

A lot of emotions for me in this story! First this RIP Little One, then this and finally, hope

Sharing needles isn’t the only way to spread HIV among drug users, according to Ontario researchers who have discovered a new method of transmission involving the equipment used to prepare the drugs before injection.

In two studies, published in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes (JAIDS) on Thursday, researchers from Lawson Health Research Institute and Western University in London, Ont., show that hygienic needle or syringe habits may not be enough to protect people who inject drugs.

Excerpts from the article:

As Nova Scotia grapples with a doctor shortage that has been described as a crisis, a group of trained doctors are wishing they were able to help.

Loai Al Rifai is one of them. He completed his medical degree in 2009 and spent two-and-a-half years working as an orthopedic surgeon in his native Syria. When he left Syria due to the civil war, he spent three years practising medicine in Jordan.

Now in Canada, Al Rifai is not yet able to share his medical knowledge with Nova Scotian patients. Instead, he finds himself working at a hardware store in Halifax.

Although he has taken classes and is conversant in English, he feels his language skills haven’t developed to the point where he is comfortable writing Nova Scotia’s mandatory medical exam.

The exam is only one of several steps graduates of medical schools outside Canada have to take before they can practise in Nova Scotia. While exact requirements vary based on a prospective doctor’s history, they can involve multiple exams and a residency period.

Excerpts from the article:

Sri Lanka on Tuesday lifted a social media ban that was imposed after the Islamic State-claimed Easter bombings, a sign of security easing even as some of the island nation's South Asian neighbours investigated possible activities in their countries inspired by the attack.

President Maithripala Sirisena ended the blocking of Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube and other popular sites, but asked the public to "act in a responsible manner" on social media, according to a government statement.

The government had said it was seeking to curb the spread of misinformation when it blocked social media in the wake of the April 21 bombings at churches and luxury hotels that killed 253 people.

Excerpts from the article:

Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder is more prevalent among some vulnerable populations, including orphans, inmates and Indigenous groups, according to a new Canadian-led study. The findings also reinforce the message that there is “no safe amount” of alcohol a pregnant woman can drink, researchers say.

The research, led by Toronto’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and published in the journal Addiction on Tuesday, covered nearly 70 studies across 17 countries and identified five subpopulations that were found to have 10 to 40 times higher prevalence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) than the general population.

The disorder, which includes the more severe fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), disproportionally affects the following groups:

(1) Children in care (including foster care, orphanages)

(2) Correctional populations

(3) Aboriginal populations

(4) Special education populations

(5) Specialized clinical populations (including psychiatric care, genetic clinics)

Excerpts from the article:

A backlog of "legacy" refugee claims filed by applicants who have been waiting over seven years to find out if they can remain in Canada will soon be cleared, as Ottawa now turns its attention to an even bigger backlog of fresh asylum claims.

The old list of stagnating cases one point stood at 32,000 claims and Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen was eager to shine a spotlight this week on his government's successful efforts at cutting it to almost nothing.

The people whose cases have been on that list came to Canada seeking refugee protection prior to December 2012. That's when the Conservatives, then in power, established new 60-day deadlines for refugee hearings. That left the 32,000 cases already in the system to be bumped to lower priority for scheduled hearings because they were already late.

Excerpts from the article:

Japanese Emperor Akihito announced his abdication at a palace ceremony Tuesday in his final address, as the nation embraced the end of his reign with reminiscence and hope for a new era.

"Today, I am concluding my duties as the emperor," Akihito said as he stood in front of the throne, as other members of the royal family and top government officials watched.

"Since ascending the throne 30 years ago, I have performed my duties as the emperor with a deep sense of trust in and respect for the people, and I consider myself most fortunate to have been able to do so. I sincerely thank the people who accepted and supported me in my role as the symbol of the state," Akihito said in his last official duty as emperor.

A court in southern China handed down sentences Tuesday to at least six foreigners involved in an international methamphetamine operation, including a Canadian given the death penalty.

The Jiangmen Intermediate People's Court in southern Guangdong province sentenced 11 people who produced more than 63 kilograms (139 pounds) of methamphetamine, an illegal drug.

Among them were one American and four Mexicans, who were all given life sentences or death sentences suspended by a period of two years. The court statement did not make clear which individual received what sentence, nor did it give their full names,

Excerpts from the article:

Cyclone Fani tore through India's eastern coast on Friday as a grade 5 storm, lashing beaches with rain and winds gusting up to 205 kilometres (127 miles) per hour and affecting weather as far away as Mount Everest as it approached the former imperial capital of Kolkata.

The India Meteorological Department said the "extremely severe" cyclone in the Bay of Bengal hit the coastal state of Odisha around 8 a.m., with weather impacted across the Asian subcontinent.

Dust storms were forecast in the desert state of Rajasthan bordering Pakistan, heat waves in the coastal state of Maharashtra on the Arabian Sea, heavy rain in the northeastern states bordering China and snowfall in the Himalayas.

Excerpts from the article:

HIV-suppressing medication can make the AIDS virus "untransmittable" even among couples who have sex without using condoms, new research showed Friday.

The Europe-wide study monitored nearly 1,000 gay male couples over a period of eight years, where one partner was HIV-positive and receiving antiretroviral (ART) treatment, while the other was HIV negative.

Doctors did not find a single case of in-couple HIV transmission within that time, raising hopes that widespread ART programmes could eventually end new infections.

Excerpts from the article:

After years of pressure to crack down on hate and bigotry, Facebook has banned Louis Farrakhan, Alex Jones and other extremists, saying they violated its ban on "dangerous individuals."

The company also removed right-wing personalities Paul Nehlen, Milo Yiannopoulos, Paul Joseph Watson and Laura Loomer, along with Jones' site, Infowars, which often posts conspiracy theories. The latest bans apply to both Facebook's main service and to Instagram and extend to fan pages and other related accounts.

Decried as censorship by several of those who got the axe, the move signals a renewed effort by the social media giant to remove people and groups promoting objectionable material such as hate, racism and anti-Semitism.

Excerpts from the article:

Wildlife officials are seeking the public's help in solving the mystery behind the fatal poisonings that have killed seven bald eagles and a great horned owl on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Officials with the US Fish and Wildlife Service and Maryland Natural Resource Police don't believe that eagles are the primary target, according to a news release by Maryland's Department of Natural Resources, but rather that poisoned baits were placed recklessly.

The USFWS and Natural Resources Police are asking that anyone with relevant, specific information come forward. The USFWS is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that furthers the investigation.

Authorities suspect that the deaths stem from someone placing baits laced with carbofuran in fields, woods and in fox dens, according to the release. Carbofuran is sold under the name Furadan and is one of the most toxic carbamate pesticides, particularly to birds.

^ ×5 "Around 1.2 million people were evacuated from low-lying areas ... and moved to nearly 4,000 shelters"

How the hell did they do that?

I used to hear that in America on high bushfire danger days people would be forcibly removed from fire prone areas. It was discussed in my country, but decided that as it would involve tens of thousands of people, it wouldn't be practical.

"Technological advancements have helped meteorologists to predict weather patterns well in advance, giving authorities more time to prepare"

"More than 850 storm shelters have been opened along Odisha's coast ... Each can hold about 1000 people, along with livestock"

"super-cyclone battered the coast of Odisha for 30 hours in 1999, killing 10,000 people. A mass evacuation of nearly a million people likely saved thousands of lives in 2013.

"We are on the job and have sufficient time to evacuate people from the coastal areas," "

"when regulators began issuing fines to Uber ... Uber developed a "Greyball" software tool, which enabled it to ban customers who were believed to be transport enforcement officers.

Uber used those customers' mobile phone SIM and credit card details to make assumptions about their identity, and created separate accounts for some of these passengers that showed non-existent "ghost" vehicles.

The ghost cars were used to make it appear as though the Uber app was working normally"

Underscoring the issues, a spokesperson for Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador tweeted on Thursday that Telesforo Santiago Enriquez, one of the country’s radio journalists, was found dead with gunshot wounds outside a vehicle on Thursday.

According to Reporters Without Borders, the deadliest countries to practice journalism in 2018 were Afghanistan, Syria, Mexico and Yemen. The U.S. was added to the worst offenders list for the first time in the history of Reporters Without Borders, tying with India in fifth place.

Police in Winnipeg are assisting the U.S. authorities in their search for a mother and daughter in an alleged child abduction case.

Winnipeg police said in a press release that the mother, 30-year-old Elmedina Velic and her six-year-old daughter Ayla were living in Clinton Township, Mich., and travelled to Winnipeg earlier this year. They may now be in Ontario, say police.

Police have been given authorization under a Hague Convention application to apprehend the child, but Winnipeg Const. Rob Carver told CTV Winnipeg “there is no suggestion that there is a concern for Ayla’s safety.”

The federal government used a favourable court decision on its carbon tax Friday to put pressure on premiers who don't like it to stop fighting it.

The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal ruled in a split decision that the tax imposed on provinces without a carbon price of their own is constitutional.

"Today's decision is a win for Canadians and for future generations," Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said in Ottawa. "This decision confirms that putting a price on carbon pollution ... is an effective and essential part of any serious response to the global challenge of climate change," she said.

A Boeing 737 arriving at Naval Air Station Jacksonville from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, with 136 passengers and seven aircrew slid off the runway into the St. Johns River, a NAS Jacksonville news release said.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office posted on Twitter that a marine unit responded to assist. The plane was in shallow water and not submerged. Everyone on the plane was alive and accounted for, the agency posted, with 21 adults transported to local hospitals in good condition.

A mammoth preparation exercise that included the evacuation of more than 1 million people appears to have spared India a devastating death toll from one of the biggest storms in decades, though the full extent of the damage was yet to be known, officials said Saturday.

Cyclone Fani packed sustained wind speeds of 250 kilometres (155 miles) per hour when it made landfall in Odisha on Friday, equivalent in strength to a Category 4 hurricane, said Mohammad Heidarzadei, an expert on cyclones at Brunel University of London.

As of late Saturday, India's National Disaster Response Force director S.N. Pradhan said three people had been killed, though the storm smashed thatched-roof huts, uprooted trees and power lines, ripped the roof off a medical college and sprayed the emptied coastline with debris

Students at a Nova Scotia high school are drawing international attention to a disappearing Indigenous language using one of the Beatles’ most recognizable songs.

Music students at Allison Bernard Memorial High School in Eskasoni, N.S. recorded a cover of “Blackbird” sung entirely in Mi’kmaq—a language spoken by fewer than 10,000 people.

The rendition, which was sung by Grade 10 student Emma Stevens, has received praise online by both Beatles fans and language advocates, and has garnered more than 100,000 views since being uploaded last week.

This is very cool!

Former star candidate and now outgoing Liberal MP Andrew Leslie is on the witness list to testify, if called, against the government on behalf of suspended Vice-Admiral Mark Norman in the high-profile case about the alleged leak of cabinet documents, CTV News has learned.

Leslie, who represents the Ottawa riding of Orleans and was previously a lieutenant-general in Canadian military, would not comment. But sources tell CTV News that he informed the Prime Minister's Office more than a year ago that he would testify on behalf of Norman. Sources confirm that he is listed on the defence witness list.

Two high level sources tell CTV News that after Leslie informed the Liberal whip that he would testify on behalf of Norman, he was not pressured to change his testimony, nor was he asked not to run again.

Excerpts from the article:

Palestinian militants on Saturday fired over 250 rockets into Israel, drawing dozens of retaliatory airstrikes on targets across the Gaza Strip in a round of heavy fighting that broke a month-long lull between the enemies. Six Palestinians, including a pregnant mother and her baby, were killed, while four Israelis were wounded, including an elderly man who was in a critical condition.

The fighting, the most intense between the sides in months, came as leaders from Hamas, the militant group that rules Gaza, and the smaller armed faction Islamic Jihad, were in Cairo for talks with Egyptian mediators aimed at preventing a fraying cease-fire from collapsing altogether.

It also comes at a sensitive time for Israel, which is to mark its Memorial Day and Independence Day holiday this week, before hosting the Eurovision song contest in the middle of the month. Prolonged fighting could overshadow the Eurovision and potentially deter international travellers from coming in for the festive event. For Gazans, the violence continued as they prepare to begin the Muslim holy fasting month of Ramadan on Monday.

Excerpts from the article:

North Korean state media on Sunday showed leader Kim Jong Un observing live-fire drills of long-range multiple rocket launchers and what appeared to be a new short-range ballistic missile, a day after South Korea expressed concern that the launches were a violation of an inter-Korean agreement to cease all hostile acts.

Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency said Kim expressed "great satisfaction" over Saturday's drills and stressed that his front-line troops should keep a "high alert posture" and enhance combat ability to "defend the political sovereignty and economic self-sustenance of the country."

The weapons launches were a likely sign of Pyongyang's growing frustration at stalled diplomatic talks with Washington meant to provide coveted sanctions relief in return for nuclear disarmament. They also highlighted the fragility of the detente between the Koreas, which in a military agreement reached last September vowed to completely cease "all hostile acts" against each other in land, air and sea.

Diana Ross says she feels "violated" by an airport screener who touched her between her legs after she performed at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

In a series of tweets on Sunday, the Motown legend says she blames the Transportation Security Administration for a screening at the New Orleans airport that makes her want to cry. She said she can "still feel her hands" between her legs, front and back.

TSA spokesman Mark Howell said in a statement to The Associated Press that the agency is investigating, but its initial video review indicates all protocols were followed. He says the agency is committed to treating all travellers with respect and courtesy.

Ross tweeted that she was treated like "royalty" while performing but "treated like "sh--" at the airport.

Russian emergency workers have recovered 41 bodies and two flight recorders from the wreckage of a plane that caught fire during an emergency landing in Moscow, officials said Monday as they sought to discover the cause of the disaster.

Transport Minister Yevgeny Dietrich gave the death toll and said six of the survivors had been hospitalized. The plane, an Aeroflot SSJ100, was carrying 78 people, including five crew members.

The plane caught fire Sunday evening about 6:30 p.m. as it came down hard on the runway at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport after turning back from a flight destined for Murmansk. The landing occurred about a half hour after takeoff, indicating that the plane had little time to dump its fuel.

One of the main nurseries for an Ontario tree planting program that's being scrapped by the province said it will likely have to destroy about three million trees because of the cancellation.

Ed Patchell, CEO of Ferguson Tree Nursery in Kemptville, Ont., said he can't afford to pay for staff, supplies and operating expenses to run the nursery and maintain all the trees that are in various stages of growth.

"If we don't have a potential client to buy those trees, then I can't afford to keep putting money into it," Patchell said.

Once again, this is all on FUCKING Fraud and the Conservatives!

Top Canadian officials are pushing the U.S. to take action to help calm the ongoing dispute with China, CTV News has learned.

Sources confirm that Canada wants the U.S. to speak directly with China on Ottawa's behalf. Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, Finance Minister Bill Morneau and Canada's ambassador to the United States David MacNaughton are reportedly among the officials pushing the U.S. to step in.

Diplomatic relations with China deteriorated following the arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou last December. Two Canadian citizens have since been detained, and two more have been put on death row.

If I were Trudeau and Freeland, I would give the States an ultimatum of 48 hours. Extradite her or Canada will set her free. End of story.

Nature is in more trouble now than at any other time in human history, with extinction looming over 1 million species of plants and animals, scientists said Monday in the United Nations' first comprehensive report on biodiversity.

It's all because of humans, but it's not too late to fix the problem, the report said.

Species loss is accelerating to a rate tens or hundreds of times faster than in the past, the report said. More than half a million species on land "have insufficient habitat for long-term survival" and are likely to go extinct, many within decades, unless their habitats are restored. The oceans are not any better off.

t's been two days since 4-year-old Maleah Davis vanished. Two days since the young girl, her brother and her stepdad were abducted by a trio of mysterious men, the stepfather said.
Yet for reasons still unknown, everyone but Maleah was released safely, the stepfather said. And the trio of men are nowhere to be found.


I put "child abduction" in quotes, because to me, there's just all kinds of wrong with the stepfather's story. Read it at the link, see what you think....

I understand the impulse to grab the carry-on. People are told never to check anything they can't do without, and some people may have their glasses, insulin, prescriptions and so forth in their bags, as well as things like passports or documents they need to finalize an adoption, or even just baby formula and stuff like that.

I think the only way to keep people from grabbing it is to either not permit any carry-on bags, including laptops and purses and infant supplies, or to have something that locks down the bins so people can't get into them (and no storage under seat), or to announce that ANYTHING carried off the plane in the event of a true emergency evacuation will be confiscated and not returned -- people will just have to do without their meds, report their passports stolen, and risk the authorities finding kiddie porn on their laptops. You aren't getting it back, even if it's your kid's insulin.

Short of disallowing all carry-ons, making it impossible to leave with carry-ons, or permanently confiscating all items removed in an emergency, selfishness will prevail.

People think they can't live without the passports, insulin, or expensive family jewels that Aunt Becky gave them on their visit to Chicago. It's not true. It's an inconvenience, maybe even a sort of disaster, but the other people don't live - period. People don't think clearly. It's never been more obvious that people don't think clearly.

Short of physically locking the locker compartments, I don't think anything would stop people from doing this. (With the Titanic there were stories of people going to retrieve their papers from a sinking ship.)

The entire article:

If you want to skip meat, a new era of options is here.

Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods are among the companies racing to tap into the massive U.S. market of meat eaters by more closely mimicking the taste of beef than vegetarian patties of the past. Others are working to grow meat in labs.

So are the plant-based patties better for you or for the planet? Here's what you might want to know before taking a bite:

ARE THEY HEALTHIER?

As with many questions about diet, it depends. For better or worse, patties from Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods can be nutritionally similar to beef.

Beyond Meat's 4-ounce patty is listed at 270 calories , while Impossible Foods' is listed at 240 calories . Ground beef's nutritional profile can range, but a similarly sized patty with 80% lean meat has around 290 calories .

Protein content is about the same, while other nutrients vary. Some may like that the plant-based patties have fiber, but dislike that they're higher in sodium.

For overall diet, what matters more might be how the patties are served, whether it's at Burger King , White Castle or elsewhere.

At Umami Burger in New York, for example, a burger with two Impossible patties, cheese and fixings tops 1,000 calories. Few would call it healthy, especially if served with fries and a soda.

"People are going to be fooling themselves into thinking these are not just better, but healthy," said Yoni Freedhoff, an obesity expert at the University of Ottawa.

People also may not realize the saturated fat content can be similar to beef burgers, he said.

WHAT'S IN THEM?

Beyond Meat's ingredients include pea protein and canola oil. Impossible Food's patties have soy protein and coconut oil. Impossible says its patties have a flavour and hue similar to beef partly because of soy leghemoglobin , a protein the company makes by genetically modifying yeast.

The meat industry, meanwhile, is appealing to people who prefer simpler ingredient lists.

"A beef patty is one natural ingredient: beef," says the North American Meat Institute, which represents meat makers.

HOW DO THEY TASTE?

Taste is subjective, but reviews generally say Beyond Meat and Impossible burgers taste similar to meat.

Christian Acosta, who works in New York, said he's had the Impossible burger several times and can't tell the difference.

"It tastes exactly like meat," he said, while waiting in line to get the burger for lunch.

Unlike with a steak, any discrepancies in taste between beef and the plant-based burgers may be masked by buns, cheese and toppings. Both Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods have also updated their recipes, and may keep doing so to get even more like meat.

HOW MUCH DO THEY COST?

The idea is to eventually make Beyond and Impossible burgers cost the same or less than beef. For now, expect to pay more.

At a Whole Foods in New York, two Beyond Meat patties cost $5.99, roughly double the price of two ground beef patties. Impossible burgers aren't yet available in grocery stores. But at a Bareburger restaurant in New York, it's an extra $3 for either of the plant-based patties.

ARE THEY BETTER FOR THE EARTH?

Beef is considered taxing on the environment because of the resources it takes to grow crops to feed cows. Cows also produce the greenhouse gas methane, mostly through burps .

Though grazing animals can play a positive role in the ecosystem, that's not how most animals in the U.S. are raised, said Christopher Field, who is at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and who knows the founder of Impossible Foods. But he noted people don't have to give up meat entirely to make a difference, and that pork and chicken have much smaller environmental footprints than beef.

WHAT'S NEXT?

On the horizon is meat grown in labs by culturing animal cells, but it will be some time before people can get a taste.

Right now, the solutions used to help cells grow are expensive and limited since they're mainly made for medical therapy purposes, said Bruce Friedrich, executive director of the Good Food Institute, which advocates for meat alternatives.

Still, regulators have taken notice and the meat industry is watching and mobilizing to "protect beef nomenclature."

Already, Beyond Meat's debut as a public company may be confirming the meat industry's concerns. Years ago, a beef group had listed Beyond Meat as an issue to watch, according to public records obtained by the Associated Press.

Excerpts from the article:

Statistics Canada says women fill 19.4 per cent of the seats on corporate boards of directors across public, government and private organizations, but more than half of all boards were composed entirely of men.

The report released today is based on 2016 data and looks at gender diversity in the boardroom among companies of all types.

Its analysis found that 28 per cent of the boards had just one woman and 15.2 per cent had more than one woman, but 56.8 per cent of the boards had no women.

Excerpts from the article:

A Vancouver store owner is accusing Khloe Kardashian's clothing company Good American of copying a slogan that she said she’s been using for years.

Tamara Komuniecki runs the Vancouver boutique Delish General Store, selling tees, sweaters and baby onesies emblazoned with slogan: “Strong as a Mother.”

While she notes the phrase is trademarked in Canada but not in the United States, she was still dismayed when she saw the phrase pop up stateside on Friday.

The entire article:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says a B.C. byelection win for the Green party shows Canadians are "preoccupied" by climate change.

Trudeau says it will be really important for Canadians to pick a government in the upcoming federal election that is committed to "climate action," adding his party will be making this point during the fall campaign.

Last night, voters in the federal riding of Nanaimo-Ladysmith elected Paul Manly of the Green party as their new MP, taking the seat away from the NDP and leaving the Liberals a distant fourth.

Manly called the victory a "historic" win, saying people want to see action on climate change.

He will be the second Green party member in Parliament, along with leader Elizabeth May.

The byelection was prompted by the departure of the NDP's Sheila Malcolmson, who quit to become a provincial politician in B.C.

Excerpts from the article:

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is expected to sign a bill Tuesday that would ban abortions if a fetal heartbeat can be detected, his spokesman Cody Hall told CNN.

Currently in Georgia, women are allowed to undergo abortion procedures up to their 20th week of pregnancy. The bill Kemp is set to sign bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy -- when many women don't yet know they're pregnant.

"No abortion is authorized or shall be performed if the unborn child has been determined to have a human heartbeat," the bill states, unless the pregnancy risks the life or poses substantial and irreversible physical harm to the pregnant woman.

Proponents, such as the Republican author, state Rep. Ed Setzler, say abortion is a "barbaric procedure" and that many other options exist for women, including adoption and the "morning after" pill.

Critics, including the American Civil Liberties Union, say Georgia's legislation "would ban safe, legal abortion and criminalize the most intimate decision women and couples make."

Andrea Young, the executive director of the ACLU of Georgia, told CNN on Monday the organization is in the process of preparing a court challenge to the bill. She said the ACLU believes it's a clear violation of Roe v. Wade.

One anti-abortion group told CNN on Monday it no longer supports so-called "heartbeat" bill because it does not go far enough.

Genevieve Wilson, executive director of Georgia Right to Life, said the group "believes in promoting social justice for all preborn children, without exception."

The controversial bill includes some exceptions for situations of medical futility or where the mother's health is at risk, as well as in cases of rape or incest before the 20 week mark, if an official police report has been filed.

Wilson said those exceptions are "discriminatory and wrong" and "creates a two-tiered framework for determining which children in the womb are allowed to live and which are not."

She said the group supported the bill until the exceptions were added during the legislative process.

Georgia's Republican-majority state House voted in favor of House Bill 481, called the Living Infants Fairness and Equality Act, with a vote of 92 to 78 on March 29.

Excerpts from the article:

It took just one day of use for several common sunscreen ingredients to enter the bloodstream at levels high enough to trigger a government safety investigation, according to a pilot study conducted by the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, an arm of the US Food and Drug Administration.

The study, published Monday in the medical journal JAMA, also found that the blood concentration of three of the ingredients continued to rise as daily use continued and then remained in the body for at least 24 hours after sunscreen use ended.
