  • Prince likely did not know the ‘Watson 385’ pills he ingested were counterfeits laced with fentanyl

    When the autopsy report for Prince surfaced in June, it became clear that the singer died from a lethal dose of a powerful opioid called fentanyl. Now investigators have found reason to believe that the pop icon did not know what he was taking. During a search of Prince’s Minnesota estate after his death in April, authorities found an Aleve bottle filled with two dozen pills. The pills tested positive for fentanyl, a drug that can be up to 100 times as powerful as morphine. But they weren’t labeled as such: The Associated Press reports that the pills were marked “Watson 385.” That’s a label found on a generic painkiller that contains acetaminophen and hydrocodone – the ingredients of many commonly

  • Philippines President Duterte threatens to leave UN

    "When were you here last time? Nothing. Never. Except to criticize." The comments come days after the UN urged Duterte's administration to step back from its violent approach to drug crime. The crackdown since Duterte took office in late June has seen over 650 police killings -- deaths Duterte and his top police officer, Roland Dela Rosa, say are justified self-defense killings -- alongside as many as 900 unexplained murders perpetrated by suspected vigilantes. Duterte has also publicly accused dozens of officials and politicians of being involved in the drug trade. A woman cradles her husband, next to a placard which reads "I'm a pusher," who was shot dead in Manila on July 23, 2016. Police

It's a refreshing trend for a province that manages to retain, on average, just 25 per cent of the immigrants and refugees that come to Newfoundland and Labrador.

  • Alien Megastructure? 'Tabby's Star' Continues to Baffle Scientists

    Nearly a year after first making headlines around the world, "Tabby's star" is still guarding its secrets. In September 2015, a team led by Yale University astronomer Tabetha Boyajian announced that a star about 1,500 light-years from Earth called KIC 8462852 had dimmed oddly and dramatically several times over the past few years. Boyajian and her colleagues suggested that a cloud of fragmented comets or planetary building blocks might be responsible, but other researchers noted that the signal was also consistent with a possible "alien megastructure" — perhaps a giant swarm of energy-collecting solar panels known as a Dyson sphere.

  • There's an important reason why there are tiny holes in airplane windows

    You don’t have to be an aeronautical engineer to know that an airplane cabin is pressurised to keep us from passing out as we soar through the skies, 11,000 metres (36,000 feet) above sea level. It also stands to reason that – to keep that pressure contained – the cabin can’t have any holes in it. So why, you might be wondering, is there a scary-looking small hole in every airplane window? Well, in short, despite what it seems, it’s there for your safety. According to Mark Vanhoenacker, a British Airways pilot who reports about aviation for Slate, these tiny window holes are actually called 'bleed holes', and they're wedged between two other panes of acrylic material, meaning that when you look
