Student leadersrunning the University of Ottawa’s orientation week events won’t be allowed to administer the opioid antidote naloxone in the event of an overdose due to liability concerns if the injection were to go wrong.Hadi Wess, president of the undergraduate student union that runs the events, said the group initially planned to have about 100 student leaders carry naloxone kits to combat any overdoses that could occur during the parties and events that get underway over the long weekend. The measure was to prepare for the possibility that substances such as the deadly opioid fentanyl could be mixed with other drugs that might be consumed.That plan was recently abandoned, however, after the union consulted with lawyers, local health organizations and protection services on campus and realized it could be held liable if the antidote was injected improperly and led to a person being injured, Wess said.A large portion of the University of Ottawa’s orientation week activities are run by the student union, Wess explained, a situation that is different from many other schools where the university administration is in charge.“This is why we have to take a lot of extra measures when it comes to insurance and when considering liabilities,” said Wess. “We are under the Ontario Corporation Act for not-for-profits, so it is a liability for us if (naloxone) is administered in a wrong way.”Student leaders at orientation events are being trained to call on-campus emergency personnel in the case of an overdose who can administer naloxone if needed, Wess said.“These people are all 17, 18 year olds, it’s the first time they’re away from home, they’re vulnerable, and they could go through substance abuse and peer pressure, so we want to make sure they’re safe,” Wess said.Student leaders will also be allowed to carry naloxone when they’re off duty and not wearing orientation week uniforms, he added.Some other universities said they had not encountered similar concerns.The University of Toronto said it had not heard discussion among student groups regarding the use of naloxone kits at orientation week. And Ryerson University said student leaders haven’t shown a desire to carry naloxone this year, but noted that emergency medical services on campus will have the kits.Meanwhile, the University of Calgary said it doesn’t have a policy on the matter and doesn’t direct students on what to do, but it does allow anyone to carry and administer naloxone if they wish to.“We don’t see a downside,” said Debbie Bruckner, senior director of student wellness, access and support at the university. “What’s clear to us from the medical officer of health is that if someone is struggling in terms of breathing, there’s no need for a certain diagnosis. You administer naloxone because there’s no negative side effects.”Rosana Salvaterra, an officer of health in Peterborough, Ont., said naloxone is a “powerful tool” against overdoses and said she was surprised student leaders won’t be allowed to carry it at the University of Ottawa’s orientation.“Frankly, I can’t see what the problem is,” said Salvaterra, noting that injecting naloxone is no more dangerous than using an epi-pen. “I think the risk of injury is very, very minimal.”There aren’t any negative side affects if naloxone was to be administered when it wasn’t needed, Salvaterra said.The biggest concern may be needle-related injuries, but Salvaterra said chances of injury during injection are mitigated by the fact that training is mandatory when receiving a naloxone kit. She also said naloxone needles are designed to retract after the injection takes place, which further reduces risk of injury.
Rabat – While Bollywood film Jagga Jasoos will not be released until mid-July, fans can get a taste of the singing and dancing to come in new behind the scenes footage of the stars dancing on the streets of Morocco.The film, titled Jagga Jasoos (Detective Jagga in English), is an Indian musical romantic comedy written and directed by Anurag Basu and starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. The plot centers around the story of a teenage detective searching for his missing father.While filming some final scenes in Morocco, lead actress Kaif shared a teaser video of goofy street dances that were part of a shoot for a song. The video shows Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif doing a series of odd dance moves while clearly surprised Moroccan’s look on. In part of the video, the actor Ranbir Kapoor can be seen holding a cap and asking for money. According to a statement Anurag Basu, the director, he was actually begging in the streets: “Yes it’s true that I asked Ranbir to hold a cap and ask around for money for the song, and people did start putting money in it. Can you believe it Ranbir collected 250-300 Morocco [sic] Dirhams! So in the song, Ranbir is genuinely collecting money while dancing for real people!”The first song of the film, ‘Ulla Ka Pattha’ has already been released and reportedly is one of 28 songs composed by Pritam in the film.Setbacks have plagued the filming of Jagga Jasoos, a combined effort by Disney and Pictureshuru Productions. Despite delays, however, a new release date has been set for July 14, 2017. read more

An 11-year-old boy is in serious condition at McMaster Children’s Hospital after being hit by a Jeep in Georgetown.It happened at the intersection of Argyll Rd. and Emslie St. around 6:25 p.m. Tuesday. Halton police say the boy was crossing Argyll Rd. on a scooter when a black Jeep Wrangler struck him. The boy was immediately taken to hospital.The driver remained on scene and has been cooperating with police. Any witnesses of the incident are asked to call the Collision Reconstruction Unit at 905-825-4747 ext. 5065.
After a lengthy construction closure that left many Brock commuters changing their daily routine, the ramps and lanes at the interchange of Highways 406, 58 and St. David’s Road have been reopened.Work on the massive three-year project, which will see a complete overhaul of the interchange, began in June and continued until late December when crews from Rankin Construction ceased operations for the winter.The new northbound ramp from Highway 406 to St. David’s East and West was opened just before Christmas and no lane or ramp closures are anticipated at the junction in the near future.Construction is expected to resume once the weather warms this spring.Scheduled for completion in 2020, the project will see an overhaul of the roads and bridges in the aging interchange, which date back to the 1960s.The final result will include long-awaited changes to the intersection, making it a safer route for pedestrians and cyclists who share the roadway with heavy traffic while travelling along St. David’s Road to and from campus.The $29.1-million initiative includes taking out an existing bridge and several highway ramps, making way for new intersections and safer traffic flows.A four-metre-wide “multi-use path” (see the blue line on the accompanying map) will be created to get pedestrians and cyclists safely along St. David’s Road, between Sir Isaac Brock Way at one end and the residential suburbs of Thorold and St. Catharines at the other. The path will run parallel to St. David’s but will be separated by a boulevard.Project updates regarding closures or traffic delays will be published in the Brock News throughout the construction period.New intersections and a four-metre-wide multi-use path are illustrated in this engineer’s map. read more
The trivial matter of his offspring’s domestic disharmony will no doubt be far from the heir to the throne’s mind as he takes to the pulpit to deliver what promises to be a heartfelt speech on Christian persecution in the Middle East. How fitting that Prince Charles is to deliver a “reflection” on forgiveness and reconciliation at Westminster Abbey on Tuesday. But in this time of peace and goodwill, the so-called Fab Four would be wise to “reflect” on the central theme of the future king’s message. For if anyone understands the consequence of family friction it is Charles, whose difficult relationship with his parents, his brother Prince Andrew and indeed his ex-wife have been well documented….
The person whose body was found among the debris of an intentionally set fire Sunday has been identified as a Vancouver woman who worked at the Sifton neighborhood market.Amy Marie Hooser, 47, of Vancouver died of smoke inhalation and blunt force injuries to the head, according to the Clark County Medical Examiner’s Office. The agency ruled the death a homicide.Clark County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Duncan Hoss said that Hooser was an employee of the Oasis Food Mart and was opening up the store when the crime occurred.Detectives are still investigating whether the death was a result of a robbery or caused by someone who knows Hooser, Hoss said, adding that investigators are not releasing any more details, including whether they have identified a suspect. Hooser’s body was found following a fire that originated in the food mart at the Sifton area strip mall. Amy Hooser read more
Local leaders and elected officials are lobbying the Air Force to select the 911th Airlift Wing at Pittsburgh Air Reserve Station to host a new C-17 Globemaster squadron.An Air Force Reserve Command team recently evaluated the base, and officials could make a decision in the next month, reported the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.Replacing the unit’s eight C-130s with eight C-17s would add 100 to 200 full-time jobs and increase its reserve ranks, said 911th spokesman Jacob Morgan. The wing has about 1,200 reservists and 300 full-time military and civilian employees.In a letter to Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James, Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey (D) noted that the 911th has been used extensively around the globe. “The 911th averages 800 airdrops annually and has supported combatant commands in more than 80 locations abroad over the past five years,” Casey stated.Because the Air National Guard’s 171st Air Refueling Wing also is located at Pittsburgh International Airport, the two units could conduct air-to-air refueling training, Casey added.The Allegheny County Airport Authority has offered to extend the base’s lease to 2048 and add 25 acres to the site to accommodate the larger aircraft. “We are working with our military partners to put them in the best position possible to be successful in their mission or any future changes,” said airport authority spokesman Bob Kerlik.Lt. Gov. Mike Stack, chairman of the Pennsylvania Military Community Enhancement Commission, said the host community would provide outstanding support for a C-17 mission.“Our state would enthusiastically welcome the C-17,” Stack wrote Lt. Gen. James Jackson, chief of staff for the Air Force Reserve. “The 911th Airlift Wing has a half-century-long history of service to our country and a strong community presence, one in which Western Pennsylvanians take great pride.” Dan Cohen AUTHOR read more
Screenshot from the video Silavut Atlannuraqtuq, Our Changing Weather, about climate change in Northwest Alaska. (Image courtesy of the Maniilaq Association and ANTHC)Alaskans have heard stories for years about how climate change is affecting subsistence hunting and fishing. Now researchers are trying to quantify that impact– and they’re finding the biggest problem is access.Listen NowThis summer, Maija Lukin set out to document changes around her home community of Kotzebue.For Lukin, the impacts of climate change are personal. She said her six-year-old niece is learning different rules for hunting and fishing than she did growing up.“She’s going to grow up learning, oh, we (always) have to check the ice,” Lukin said. “I never had to check the ice, ever.”Lukin heard similar stories all over the region, when she visited several villages this year with a videographer in tow.Lukin was the tribal environmental manager for the Maniilaq Association, the regional nonprofit. She’s now moved on to the National Park Service. She didn’t tell people she was making a video about climate change. She just asked, how has the weather changed in your lifetime?And, Lukin said, people talked. And talked. And talked.Iditarod musher John Baker told her, when he started running dogs 20 years ago, he could train year-round.“This year, I started running first of September,” Baker said. “And I’m having to run them only early in the morning because it’s so warm.”Carl Thomas of Deering said unreliable ice has made it difficult to hunt bearded seals, or oogruk.“This year, me and my friend actually shot an oogruk, and we tried to walk to it, but we couldn’t get to it because the ice was so rotten,” Thomas said.Their stories and more were captured in Lukin’s video, Silavut Atlannuraqtuq, or Our Changing Weather.Above all, people talked about how unpredictable the weather is now, and how that makes it harder to get out on the land.Those are exactly the kinds of issues University of Alaska Fairbanks biologist Todd Brinkman and his team found when they set out to assess the impact of climate change on subsistence use.“Our take-home finding was relatively surprising, in that we found that climate effects on the environment are having the largest impact on people’s ability to travel across landscapes and access these resources,” Brinkman said.In other words, the biggest effects right now aren’t on, say, the populations of caribou or seals. The biggest effects are on people’s ability to get to those animals.Brinkman and his colleagues conducted interviews in four villages — Wainwright and Kaktovik on the Arctic coast; and Venetie and Fort Yukon in the Interior — for a paper published this fall.Residents told them ice is thinner. Rivers are shallower. Permafrost is deteriorating. The biggest problem is just getting places.Brinkman said that’s a surprise for wildlife biologists, who are used to focusing on a species’ population size.“We make this assumption that if there’s an abundance of fish or game, hunting opportunities will follow suit, and they’ll be just fine,” Brinkman said. “But we found despite abundant resources, people were having trouble accessing them because of how the climate was changing the local environment.”One example of this: Bowhead whales. The bowhead population is growing. But harvests have been uncertain because of thinner sea ice and unpredictable weather.“Whalers have to be much more careful when they’re spring whaling, which occurs on sea ice — getting out to their whaling location, and finding a landing that’s stable enough to actually get the whale back onto after they harvest it,” Brinkman said. “So they may just be spending more time looking for ways to get out to their whaling area.”The question is, how big a deal is all of this? Are these changes just inconveniences — or something more?That’s what Brinkman’s newest research is focused on.“Are people not able to meet their needs?” Brinkman said. “Are they forced to make serous sacrifices? Are they forced to abandon hunting areas altogether?”To answer those questions, Brinkman and his colleagues have distributed GPS-equipped cameras in nine villages. As residents travel around the region, they’re asked to take photos of the kind of landscape changes that get in the way — from open water on rivers to fallen trees from recent wildfires.Researchers will then cross-reference that data with satellite and aerial images from NASA dating back to the 1980s, to determine whether these kinds of disturbances are happening more frequently than in the past.Another big question is how communities are adapting to these changes, whether through new technology or new approaches.Maija Lukin has one answer: Facebook.“Because it’s real time,” Lukin said. “If you have enough friends who are hunters, berry pickers or fishers, then you know where the safe ice is, and so you can see them posting pictures, and you can say, hey, Onion Portage, tons of caribou, go right now!” read more
Chiranjeevi and Pawan KalyanTwitterMegastar Chiranjeevi, Ram Charan and other members of the mega family have stayed away from campaigning for power star Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena Party in the impending Assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh.It is known that Chiranjeevi had floated his own political outfit called Praja Rajyam party in 2007. Along with his brother Chiru, Pawan Kalyan had toured the united Andhra Pradesh and campaigned for his party. But the mega brothers failed to bring the party to power and later, the party was merged with Congress. The power star, who was not happy with the decision, kept himself away from the mega family.Pawan Kalyan floated a new political outfit called Jana Sena Party in 2014. Instead of contesting, the power star went on to extend his party support to the TDP and BJP in the previous elections and was helpful in bringing both parties to power in both the state and centre. However, all these developments did not go down well with the mega family, which stayed away from the events and activities of the party.Over the years, Pawan Kalyan and Chiranjeevi sorted out their differences and appeared together on some events. The megastar and his other family members were expected to campaign for the power star’s party. But they have stayed away from the party, while the Agnyaathavaasi star toured the state all alone for a year and a half. Pawan Kalyan inducts his brother Nagababu in to Jana Sena partyTwitterChiranjeevi’s other brother Nagababu recently joined Jana Sena Party and is contesting as MP candidate from Narsapur constituency. On the other hand, mega fans expected the megastar to support of Pawan Kalyan but decided to let his brother canvass alone. Chiranjeevi was in an awkward moment when the angry fans of his brother mobbed him during a recent public appearance.Mega fans gathered around Chiranjeevi during a public appearance and forcibly made him shout the slogan – ‘Jai Jana Sena’. After this awkward situation, Chiru is said to have decided to avoid public meetings and media appearances until elections are concluded in the state.Mega power star Ram Charan, who is fond of his uncle very much, has stayed away from the election campaign for the Jana Sena Party. The mega family has nearly ten film heroes and hardly anyone of them is coming forward to support the actor. Even Varun Tej is not helping his father Naga Babu win MP seat.However, Andhra Pradesh, which goes for its assembly polls on April 11, is set to witness a triangular battle among three parties – TDP, YCP and JSP. Jagan Mohan Reddy has put out a tough fight for incumbent Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu. Pawan Kalyan knows that he can not win this tough fight, but he hopes to be a game changer like JD(S) leader HD Kumaraswamy in Karnataka. read more
Kolkata: Election strategist Prashant Kishor on Thursday again met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at the state secretariat here on Thursday, sources said. Kishor was seen walking out of ‘Nabanna’ accompanied by Trinamool Congress MP and Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee.

Cheap, fun and social – hostels are amazing places to stay while you travel. They are a great way to meet fellow travellers and explore the world at a low cost and these days hostels are more and more determined to receive your approval via online reviews by providing great services and amenities. However, some places still may not live up to expectations and there will always be little irritations that arise from communal living. So, from bad roommates to mouldy showers we reveal the most common hostel horrors and how to handle them!1. The unexpected locationSo you arrive at your destination, feeling happy that you’ve got a bed pre-booked in a hostel with good reviews at a budget price. But wait – how many tube stops away from the train station is it? Where on the map is that street? Let’s face it, a hostel that isn’t slap bang in the centre of town might exaggerate a little about its proximity to the biggest attractions. It’s something we all fall foul to at some point in our travels. It can put a bit of a damper on the start of a trip, knowing that you will be sacrificing time and money to visit the main attractions. Top tips: There isn’t really anything you can do about it (unless you want to lose your deposit and search for a new hostel). The best thing you can do is see the positives. You may have ended up further off the beaten track than you were hoping for, but it means you can see a side to a city that no one else will. Try out the local cafes or bars, mingle with the locals and get some authentic (and usually much cheaper) food from the surrounding restaurants.

The too small/ overcrowded dorm roomYou check in and get shown to your eight-bed dorm-room only to discover that the eight beds have been crammed into a shoebox of a room. You knew you were having to share space but you weren’t expecting to be THAT close to a stranger within five minutes of meeting. Top tips: Turn your bed into a blanket fort. It’s horribly claustrophobic but a welcome alternative to constantly bumping shoulders with people. Use your pillows and rucksack to make walls and hang up clothes over your bed for privacy. If anything, a shambolic room is a good excuse to get out and about as much as possible.3. The noisy roommatesAren’t they the worst? The people who seem to have no concept of manners, let alone noise levels. They pick inappropriate times of day to stomp around, having loud discussions and treat the room like it’s their own. Top tips: Earplugs or music. The two items that will get you through many an aggravating situation. It’s a heck of a lot easier than getting into an argument with someone. They also work a treat if you end up in a party hostel or a room that looks out onto a main street in the centre of town. 4. Friendly roommates (bear with us on this one)As nice as people you are sharing with may seem, you have to remember that they are still strangers. As nice as it is to believe in a sort of traveller’s code of conduct while backpacking, it can be easy to fall into a false sense of security and put your trust in people you know nothing about. Top tips: Always use lockers when they are available and keep a padlock on you as many hostels don’t provide them. Try to avoid taking valuables with you but if there isn’t a secure place to store important items then carry them with you rather than leaving them under your pillow! No matter how cosy a situation may feel, always keep your wits about you and exercise extra caution when staying in shared rooms. A little bit of paranoia is better than a stolen laptop. 5. The food thiefThose lovely cherries you bought at the market, labelled in the fridge one minute, in another traveller’s backpack the next. Beware the communal fridge thief!Top tips: Sometimes taking someone else’s food can be a genuine mistake – so if you have to store food in a shared kitchen, label it as clearly as possible and store it at the back of the fridge/cupboard. However if you want to make sure you are never left foodless, buy food and cook/eat it as you go. 6. The filthy bathroomThe inexperienced backpacker’s nightmare, an inevitability for the seasoned traveller. Even in the most looked after hostels, you never know what mess another backpacker has made before you. And in some hostels it is simply just bad housekeeping. Top tips: Have a soap bag with some essentials – flip flops, wet wipes, hand sanitizer and a foot towel. This may not seem like much but can make the experience of a mouldy shower a (tad) more bearable. 7. The constant farewellsYou meet a fellow traveller, you hit it off and then you have to say adios. It’s a sad reality of being constantly on the go.Top tips: We live in the 21st century. Keeping in touch is easier than ever before and although you may not be pen pals for life, having some point of contact with someone you meet means you’ll have a local tour guide if you ever decide to visit the country they are from. These chance encounters with fellow adventurers make all the irritations of being in a hostel incredibly worthwhile!
