+ - Canadian Conservatives Screen Events with Facebook->

Submitted by sackvillian
sackvillian (1476885) writes "The Canadian federal election is heating up as opposition parties expressed 'outrage' over the ejection of a couple of university students from a rally for Steven Harper, the current Prime Minister. Two members of the federal RCMP asked the students to leave the rally, allegedly because one of the students posted a picture of herself with an opposition leader on the popular networking site. The students had been required to preregister for the event, which could have provided the opportunity for the Facebook-screening to take place."

+ - Arizona Shooing Due To Failed Mental-Health Policy->

Submitted by sackvillian
sackvillian (1476885) writes "With widespread speculation on the possible factors leading to the recent shooting of US Congresswoman Giffords and 18 other victims, Dr. E. Fuller Torry suggests the blame should be placed on failed US Mental-Health policy."These tragedies are the inevitable outcome of five decades of failed mental-health policies. During the 1960s, we began to empty the state mental hospitals but failed to put in place programs to ensure that the released patients received treatment after they left. By the 1980s, the results were evident — increasing numbers of seriously mentally ill persons among the homeless population and in the nation's jails and prisons.""

+ - Tamiflu's Efficacy In Doubt-> 1

Submitted by sackvillian
sackvillian (1476885) writes "Investigations into Roche's claims that its drug, Tamiflu, is safe and effective have shown that there are serious problems with the science. Considering that the US has a stockpile of $1.5 billion of this drug, and right now there's a lot of commotion about climate-gate and swine flu scares, this news couldn't come at a worse time."
