Canadian family with Sri Lankan links escape jeep fire

A minute later, he said his wife saw smoke billowing from under the hood. When Ratnasingham looked more closely, he saw fire.“I opened the hood and there was a flame,” he said. “The flame was so intense,” said Chris Ratnasingham, describing Friday’s events in the rural community of Freelton. Ratnasingham’s first instinct was to get his wife and son out of the back seat where the boy was secured in a child safety carrier.Within four minutes, he said the vehicle was engulfed in flames — and he wants to know why.“You get an SUV thinking you’ll be safe. You don’t think the vehicle will cause you harm,” said Ratnasingham, adding he and his wife chose the Cherokee specifically because they believed it would be safe. A Canadian family with Sri Lankan links escaped a fire in their jeep and are now seeking answers.The Hamilton family escaped injury after their SUV caught fire as they stopped to pick up mail at the community postal box near their home, Canada’s Global News reported. With his wife, Annissa Maharaj, and their six-month-old son, Ratnasingham said he drove up the road to retrieve his mail. He said he turned off the ignition on his 2015 Jeep Cherokee, stepped out of the SUV, opened the mail box and examined the contents. Jeep is manufactured by FCA Canada. In a written statement, the company said it was pleased there were no injuries in this case. “The company is unaware of any similar incidents involving this make and model. Fires are highly complex events often caused by circumstances unrelated to vehicle design,” said a company spokesperson.The couple said they intended to keep the vehicle for several more years.As a result of the fire, they will receive much less from their insurer than what they paid for the vehicle. In addition, they are obligated to pay in insurance deductible even though the fire was not their fault. A FCA Canada spokesperson said it would work with the couple to help them replace the vehicle, possibly at a reduced retail price.The couple said they want to warn other families about the importance of never leaving their children unattended in their vehicle, even for a brief period.“Don’t do it,” said Maharaj, who was able to quickly spirit her son from the car when the fire began.In 2016, there were 2,892 vehicle fires in Ontario, according to the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services. Three people died in those fires.

TSX closes lower key data shows US manufacturing sector falters in March

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 1, 2013 8:17 am MDT TSX closes lower, key data shows U.S. manufacturing sector falters in March TORONTO – The Toronto stock market started off second-quarter trading Monday with a loss amid mixed manufacturing data that showed a strengthening sector in China and slowing expansion in the U.S.The S&P/TSX composite index dropped 54.76 points to 12,695.14, led by falling mining stocks as copper prices hit an eight month low.The Canadian dollar dipped 0.07 of a cent at 98.36 cents US.U.S. indexes were also in the red after the Institute for Supply Management’s manufacturing index for March came in at 51.3. Economists had expected the widely-watched index to remain unchanged from February at an 18-month high of 54.2.“This could be the first sign that the impact of U.S. government budget cuts could be impacting business/manufacturing activity,” said BMO Capital Markets senior economist Jennifer Lee.“New orders and production (think of those two components as future activity and current activity, respectively) took a sizable drop to three-and six-month lows.”But the news wasn’t all bad as the manufacturing survey also showed that “employment popped up to a nine-month high, fully erasing February’s decline.”The Dow Jones industrial average declined 5.69 points to 14,572.85, the Nasdaq composite index dropped 28.35 points to 3,239.17 and the S&P 500 index points declined 7.02 points to 1,562.17 after the index hit a record high on Friday.Other data showed that U.S. construction spending rose 1.2 per cent in February compared with January, a month that had seen construction activity drop 2.1 per cent. Spending rose to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of US$885.1 billion, 7.9 per cent higher than a year ago.Meanwhile, the China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing said Monday that the country’s manufacturing picked up in March in a potentially positive sign for the world’s second-largest economy.Its Purchasing Managers’ Index rose to 50.9 in March from 50.1 in February, which was the lowest reading in five months. Numbers above 50 denote expansion on a 100-point scale.Chinese manufacturing is closely watched as an indicator of global consumer sales and demand for commodities such as copper and oil. High demand in the past has fuelled higher share prices for energy and mining stocks on the resource-intensive TSX.However, despite the improvement in factory output, analysts said investors remained worried about a possible property bubble, inflation and what policies the new Chinese government might have in store.“Better than expected (Chinese) data six months ago would have been music to the market’s ears,” said Craig Fehr, Canadian markets specialist at Edward Jones in St. Louis.“I think right now investors are weighing any better than expected data against the potential for that to heat up property values and thus put (monetary) policy against growth in the near term.”The base metals component fell 1.68 per cent as May copper slipped three cents to an eight-month low of US$3.37 a pound. Taseko Mines (TSX:TKO) moved down eight cents to C$2.75 while Lundin Mining (TSX:LUN) lost 16 cents to $4.28.Railway stocks fell alongside miners with Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) down $3.54 to $129.The gold sector lost about 1.1 per cent even as June bullion gained $5.20 to US$1,600.90 an ounce. Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) faded 36 cents to C$29.48.Tech stocks were mainly lower with CGI Group (TSX:GIB.A) down 74 cents to $26.87 while smartphone maker BlackBerry (TSX:BB) gained 26 cents to $15.35.The energy sector shed early gains to end the session flat as the May crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange closed down 16 cents to US$97.07 a barrel. But Cenovus Energy (TSX:CVE) was up 26 cents at C$31.72.Elsewhere on the market, shares in Molson Coors (NYSE:TAP) (TSX:TPX.B) gained $2.97 or 6.07 per cent to US$51.90 in New York after Goldman Sachs upgraded the brewer to a buy rating from neutral.The TSX started the second-quarter trading period up a slight 2.5 per cent year to date, down from highs of mid-March when the market was ahead about 3.5 per cent, reflecting a stubbornly slow global economic recovery.In contrast, a stream of positive economic indicators, including a resurgent housing sector and continued stimulus measures from the U.S. Federal Reserve, helped power the Dow Jones industrials to a string of record-high closes, leaving the blue chip index up almost 11.25 per cent year to date.Evidence that growth is continuing have kept stocks on a largely upward trajectory, leaving investors waiting for dips to add to their holdings.“I’d love to have some sort of a pullback here because I’d think it’s an opportunity,” said Scott Wren, an equity strategist at Wells Fargo Advisors in New York.“But it doesn’t feel like we’re going to have one in the near term.”The TSX Venture Exchange lost 9.44 points to 1,089.56. read more

FANTASY PLAYS Players to start as fantasy playoffs begin

It’s playoff time in most fantasy leagues, so if you’re still contending for a title it probably means you had a crafty draft, timely waiver wire moves and a fortunate bounce or two along the way.Now, the job is shifting.Week 14 is also the last week of the regular season in a host of leagues. Weather could be a factor this week in some games, but the objective is the same as it was in September: win.START: Amari Cooper, WR, Cowboys: Performing at a WR1 level, Cooper has caught 16 of 17 targets in the past two weeks and will have a great opportunity to continue his pace against an Eagles pass defence that is 30th in fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers. Cooper was targeted 10 times in the Week 10 victory at Philadelphia and will see a similar volume of targets from quarterback Dak Prescott. The Eagles have allowed 47 completions of better than 20 yards, which plays well for Cooper’s chances.SIT: Tom Brady, QB, Patriots: The touchdowns haven’t been there for Brady, who has just four scoring tosses in his last five games, including a pair of zeroes in Weeks 8 and 10. With the emergence of rookie running back Sony Michel, the need for Brady to air it out has lessened. He’s also been less than stellar throughout his career at Miami, who is second in the league with 19 interceptions. Unless he’s the only available option, look elsewhere.START: Gus Edwards, RB, Ravens: Since being plugged into the lineup, Edwards has averaged 105 yards per game. Now he gets a Chiefs defence that is 31st in fantasy points per game allowed to opposing running backs. Edwards has just one touchdown this season, a total that should go up considering that Kansas City has given up 14 rushing scores and a hefty 5.1 yards per carry. He’s a borderline RB1 with potential to put up monster numbers.SIT: Marlon Mack, RB, Colts: Out of the frying pan that was the Jaguars’ defence and into the fire of a blistering hot Texans D goes Mack, who had just eight carries for 27 yards last week against Jacksonville. His production could be further carved if Indianapolis must go pass-heavy, as rookie Nyheim Hines will see more touches. Houston is fifth in the league against the run, and only the Bears (four) and Patriots (five) have allowed fewer rushing touchdowns than the Texans with six. Mack is too risky, especially in PPR formats.START: David Njoku, TE, Browns: Inconsistent of late, Njoku has just 12 targets in his last three games but will have the opportunity to reward faithful fantasy owners against a Panthers defence that is the worst at stopping opposing tight ends. Carolina has allowed at least two touchdown passes nine times this season and with Cleveland looking to avoid the Panthers’ fifth-ranked run defence, it’s easy to see quarterback Baker Mayfield making Njoku a focal point of the offence, especially in the red zone.SIT: Jared Goff, QB, Rams: Yes, Goff has led many a fantasy team to post-season glory, but starting him against the Bears could lead to a one-and-done scenario. Game time temps will be in the upper 20s and the only thing colder than the weather are opposing passers against the Chicago defence, which leads the league with 21 interceptions while allowing just five touchdown passes in the last five games. The risk-reward that comes with starting Goff on Sunday night leans heavily to the risk category.START: Adam Humphries, WR, Buccaneers: He has thrived in the wake of DeSean Jackson’s absence, catching touchdowns in each of his last three games. Humphries will have every opportunity to extend his scoring streak against a Saints defence that is the worst in fantasy points per game allowed to opposing receivers, as his sure hands have caught 16 of 20 targets in the past three weeks. With this game a potential offensive free-for-all, add Humphries as a WR3/flex.SIT: Alshon Jeffrey, WR, Eagles: Fantasy owners would love to know the whereabouts of Jeffrey, who hasn’t scored since Week 7 and has failed to exceed 50 receiving yards in his last five games. There’s little reason to envision Jeffery reviving his fortunes against a Cowboys pass defence that is sixth in fewest receiving yards allowed and is tied for third with just 16 touchdown passes allowed.START: Aaron Jones, RB, Packers: After rushing for only 36 yards last week against the Cardinals, Jones is a strong rebound candidate when he squares up against the Falcons, who are 27th against the run and giving up 4.9 yards per carry. He did score last week, marking four straight games with a touchdown. Jones could finally see a more extensive workload under interim coach Joe Philbin.SIT: Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks: It’s tough to bench a quarterback who has thrown multiple touchdowns in eight straight games, but Wilson is facing a Vikings pass defence that has been in lockdown mode in the past month. Minnesota is ninth in fewest passing yards allowed and has contained the likes of Drew Brees, Matthew Stafford, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady over the last five games, surrendering a combined four touchdown passes in the same span. Wilson hasn’t run much this season, but a Vikings pass rush that has recorded 36 sacks will force him to be more run-centric.___For more Week 14 fantasy lineup advice and tips, visit RotoExperts: https://rotoexperts.comBrandon C.

Teenage asylum seeker fighting for life after savage attack

first_imgDiane AbbottCredit:Heathcliff O’Malley He added: “Hate crime is something which we understand can be very, very divisive. Croydon is culturally diverse and we need to continue to celebrate that.”We are appealing to all decent people from whatever background they come from to help us identify the individuals that are involved in this isolated attack.”In a direct message to the attackers, Mr Boothe said: “Hand yourselves in. It’s only going to be a matter of time before we identify and locate them. We would ask them to do the decent thing and hand themselves in.”Mr Barwell said: “I think most people in Croydon will be as appalled as I am that what appears to have happened is a young man who came to this country seeking sanctuary has apparently been targeted because of his ethnic background.”It’s an appalling crime and I hope the people responsible are caught quickly and receive the full force of British justice.”He said Croydon generally had “very good relations between people of different backgrounds”.”This is completely out of character but that is no comfort to the individual who is fighting for his life now,” he added.Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott suggested the Conservatives had failed to get to grips with hate crime. Diane Abbott Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. She said: “Sadly this is not an isolated incident but part of a sustained increase in hate crimes that this Tory Government is yet to offer any effective response to.”With right-wing politicians across the world scapegoating migrants, refugees and others for their economic problems, we are seeing a deeply worrying rise in the politics of hate. A teenage asylum seeker remains in hospital fighting for his life after a “savage” attack by a gang in an apparent hate crime left him with a fractured skull and a blood clot on his brain.The 17-year-old, a Kurdish Iranian, was waiting at a bus stop with two friends outside The Goat pub in Croydon, south-east London, when the group approached them.After discovering he was an asylum seeker they chased him and launched a vicious assault, repeatedly kicking him on the floor and aiming blows to his head.His two friends escaped with minor injuries, Scotland Yard said.Chief Superintendent Jeff Boothe, Croydon’s borough commander, called it a “savage attack” and said it was only the intervention of passers-by and the arrival of police that stopped it being worse.The incident prompted a wave of condemnation, with Tory minister Gavin Barwell, Croydon Central’s MP, describing the attackers as “scum”.Mr Boothe told the Press Association: “A number of bystanders and eyewitnesses tried to intervene and say to the attackers that enough is enough.”By all accounts they didn’t actually stop until the sound of police sirens were heard in the background.”The attack happened in Shrublands Avenue at 11.40pm on Friday.Detectives are investigating whether some of those involved had been drinking in The Goat in Broom Road, Mr Boothe said.center_img Gavin Barwell Credit:Chris Radburn/PA Wire Gavin Barwell  The “close-knit community” has been left shocked by the ferocity of the attack, he added, and extra officers have been out and about to reassure people.He said: “This is not usual for the area, it is out of the norm. This is not Croydon, Croydon is a very diverse community – they celebrate their diversity and as recently as Thursday at the town hall we had a number of leaders from different faith groups saying we are all united and stand together.” “We must make clear that there is no place for anti-foreigner myths, racism and hate in our society.”No arrests have been made and police are appealing for witnesses.Detective Sergeant Kris Blamires said: “A number of people came to the aid of the victim as he lay unconscious and injured following the assault.”The suspects are believed to have made off in the direction of The Goat pub, Broom Road, following the attack.”All communities stand together against hate and we would ask anyone with any information to come forward immediately.”Six people have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder over a “savage” attack that left a teenage asylum seeker fighting for his life.Four men and two women in their 20s are being held at a south London police station for questioning, Scotland Yard said.Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.last_img read more

Strawberry Milkshake PopTarts Are Back and Better Than Ever

first_imgStay on target Finally, KFC Makes A Colonel Sanders Dating GameKFC Tests Plant-Based Beyond Fried Chicken in Atlanta Growing up, I was always that kid who begged her parents to try all the new weird and wonderful flavors of her favorite junk food. That hasn’t changed as an adult, but I’ve got to watch what I eat more than ever these days. That doesn’t change the fact that I want to try all the crazy new flavors of cookies and candy and cereal I write about regularly here, though. So when I heard Strawberry Milkshake Pop-Tarts were coming back to store shelves after a long hiatus, I was over the moon. I remembered them from their brief availability period back in 2005 as part of the Kellogg’s Ice Cream Shoppe initiative, and I never got to try them. I didn’t get to taste the delicious Vanilla Milkshake Pop-Tarts either, and they’ve been resurrected, too.When it comes to Pop-Tart flavors, I typically go for Chocolate Chip, or any flavor I can find lying around that isn’t boring Cherry or Brown Sugar Cinnamon. I don’t get to eat a lot of Pop-Tarts these days since they’re loaded with sugar, but I was willing to make an exception for these bubblegum pink bad boys. So I was sent a couple of boxes of Strawberry Milkshake Pop-Tarts to crack into and test, and you know what? They’re actually delicious. I mean, dangerously so. I can’t have these in the house anymore. These have to be my last box.Think about this. It’s a gorgeous rectangle of pink goodness with colorful sprinkles, filled with a thin, custard-like cream reminiscent of the legendary strawberry Creme-Savers, your favorite Starburst, or cheap strawberry ice cream. The good stuff that comes in those plastic cups that you pay $5 per dozen for, with little wooden spoons taped to each serving. The Pepto-Bismol pink filling is some of the creamiest I’ve ever tasted in a Pop-Tart except for the delicious Hot Fudge Sundae flavor (a personal favorite), and it’s oh so smooth going down. It’s also so painfully sweet I’m pretty sure it was the catalyst for a terrible toothache I acquired over the last few days, which began with my powering through two packs of these babies in two days.While you can, of course, eat them straight from the toaster or out of the package, which I prefer to do, the packaging suggests that you try freezing them. I did, and the consistency improves tenfold once they’ve chilled out for a good while. The pink creaminess is somehow further enhanced by the colder temperatures, so much so that they do begin to taste a bit like a real strawberry milkshake somehow, albeit with pastry pieces sprinkled in for good measure.The Strawberry Milkshake Pop-Tarts should be a staple in the regular Pop-Tarts lineup going forward, but I know that all good things must come to an end. Hopefully, they’ll be out on store shelves a lot longer than they were during their initial run, because it’s absolutely criminal to take these away from snacking fans. Now make more with the same kind of delicious vanilla cream that’s in the Vanilla Milkshake version! Alas, I’ve already eaten my way through the two boxes gifted to me, but rest assured I’ll be on the hunt for more.center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Boldts hopes for reelection dim in latest election returns

first_imgClark County Council Chair Marc Boldt saw his re-election prospects dim as the most recent count of the votes cast in Tuesday’s primary election show him falling behind Eric Holt, a Democrat vying for the position. On election night 974 votes separated Boldt, an independent, from Holt. On Wednesday, that number had increased to 1,288. Under Washington’s primary system the two candidates with the most votes advance to the November general election regardless of party affiliation. “Rats,” said Boldt in a text. “Going the wrong way.”Republican Clark County Councilor Eileen Quiring maintained her lead in the race with 29,961 votes, or 37.7 percent of the most recent count. Clark County elections officials counted about 10,000 ballots Wednesday, boosting voter turnout to 29.4 percent.

Temple Lentz, a Democrat, led with 6,041 votes, or 33.6 percent. Jeanne Stewart, a Republican who currently holds the District 1 seat, was in second with 33.1 percent of the vote, or 5,941 of votes counted. Former Democratic state Rep. Jim Moeller remained in third place with 5,721 votes, or 31.8 percent. Only 320 votes separates the three top vote-getters in the race.An estimated 17,000 ballots remain to be counted.

The minister on Saturday flagged off 53 new fire tenders. The department will also introduce four robots in its fleet for more effective firefighting in the city. The necessary nod from the state Finance department for procuring the robots has already been received. The robots can be used in case of fire in highrises and also in cases of chemical fire. The department, as part of its measures for modernisation, is also introducing fire balls. “The balls will be used to extinguish fire in very narrow and congested places or in locked buildings, where physical entry is extremely difficult. We have plans to procure 2,000 such fire balls,” a senior official in the state Fire department said.last_img read more

Congress Is Trying To Pump the Brakes On Hackers Who Can Control

first_img Hackers have long reigned as the ultimate predators of our online world. But as more of the objects, devices and gadgets we use every day are connected to the Internet, hackers are becoming ever more powerful and are able to extend their reach into every corner of our life, including your car.Imagine driving down the road and your car no longer responds to your commands, not because the function is broken but because the car is responding to someone else’s command overriding anything you do.  Related: Smart Devices Are the Cause of Distracted Driving — But They’re Also the SolutionAs one WIRED journalist found out, that can be pretty scary.  Senior writer Andy Greenberg voluntarily put himself in a Jeep Cherokee and invited hackers — located in a basement 10 miles away — to mess with him and the car he was driving. Here’s a list of what those hackers were able to do to Greenberg’s car:Blew cold air at maximum levelSwitched the radio stationTurned up the music volumeSwitched the windshield wipers onEjected wiper fluid onto the windshieldPut their picture on the digital dashboard displayCaused the accelerator to stop workingKilled the engine (only if the car was going slowly)Steered the car (only if the car is going slowly)Related: Companies Need to Take Responsibility for Protecting Sensitive User DataThis is all possible because automakers are building connected cars before they have a way to protect them. The consumer vulnerability is getting attention of U.S. lawmakers.  Just yesterday, Senators Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), two members of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, introduced a bill that would require the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to create federal standards to protect driver’s privacy. Further, the legislation would require the government to create a ratings system to inform consumers how secure their car automobile is from hackers.“Rushing to roll out the next big thing, automakers have left cars unlocked to hackers and data-trackers,” said Senator Blumenthal, in a statement announcing the legislative push. “Security and safety need not be sacrificed for the convenience and promise of wireless progress.”This isn’t the first time U.S. legislators have taken notice of the wireless carjacking. Back in February, Markey commissioned a report that discovered that almost 100 percent of vehicles on the market with wireless entry points (WEPs) are vulnerable to hackers.Related: The Next Place Hackers Will Find You?
