The problem is compounded when using free and public Wi-Fi (called “hotspots”), as they’re considerably less secure than your own private connection. Find out the official name of the legitimate Wi-Fi network from the school itself. Therefore, use free Wi-Fi for things like reading the news, streaming music, or doing research for homework. Even better than joining a seemingly secured Wi-Fi network is to bring your own. •If it’s not set up to do it automatically, download the latest free software updates for your Windows or Mac operating system.

Toronto police deputy chief Barbara McLean said at Wednesday’s meeting that a formal request will be sent to the civilian board. We need de-escalation,” said Peter Rosenthal, a Toronto lawyer who has represented families of people killed by police. The fact that Toronto police officers have restricted access to the weapons means there is now a risk to public and officer safety. But some members of the public, legal experts and rights organizations are speaking out against greater Taser deployment. Among Iacobucci’s recommendations was that Toronto launch a pilot project allowing front line officers greater access to Tasers.

Teammates described Curtis McElhinney as a good guy, good teammate and hard worker before he took to the Maple Leafs’ net for his first start of the season against the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night. As a 13-year NHL veteran, McElhinney is also a pretty good goalie, but chances to show it behind workhorse No. He did just that against the Wings, though, weathering a brief storm in the second period to bail out the Leafs for a 6-3 victory. At 6-1-0 for just the seventh time in franchise history, the Leafs stand alone atop the Eastern Conference. The Leafs went 12-3-3 in the first game when they played on consecutive nights last season, but 6-11-1 in the second.

MONTREAL—Gilbert Rozon, the impresario behind Montreal’s world-famous Just for Laughs Festival, has quit the entertainment company over unspecified allegations of abuse. I certainly don’t want to overshadow their activities,” Rozon wrote in what he titled an official declaration. Article Continued BelowOne woman reported that in June 2016 she awoke following an evening of drinking to find Rozon having sex with her against her will, something that Rozon himself later disputed in an email exchange. The woman was reportedly among a group of Rozon’s alleged victims who came together Tuesday in Montreal to discuss their ordeals. Salvail’s lawyer, Jacques Jeansonne, refused to comment on the allegations, shortly before Salvail himself addressed the matter on his Facebook page Wednesday.

The hotel engineer, Stephen Schuck, was sent to check a fire exit door that Campos found bolted shut, he told DeGeneres. 'I would have got hit'When Schuck arrived in the 32nd floor hallway, Campos had already been shot. But he still managed to lean out from a door entrance and yell at Schuck to take cover, Schuck told DeGeneres. Both are on paid leave from their jobs, according to officials at MGM Resorts International, which owns the hotel. He told Campos in the interview that the guard saved his life, and DeGeneres credited Campos with also warning a woman who started to come out of her room to get back inside.

"When the finance minister was first elected, he clearly said that he was going to put his vast fortune into a blind trust. "I expect that all my assets will go into a blind trust." On Tuesday, Dawson said she told Morneau that he didn't need a blind trust. The complex ownership structure of Morneau's shares meant he did not have to place them in a blind trust because he did not directly control the shares, even though he controls a company that does. "It's my job to fulfil the will of Parliament on what the rules are," Dawson told CTV.

Head coach Mike O’Shea’s default position is to keep everybody playing. “Still not at that point, yet, where I would think of resting guys,” O’Shea said. “Obviously getting into the playoffs being healthy and flying around is important,” Harris said. Whatever’s best for the team.”THE 100-CLUBWith six more catches, Harris would become the fifth Blue Bomber to record 100 receptions in a season. “That’s a huge accomplishment,” Harris said.

It is, after all, a fairly straightforward step from selling planes for less than they cost to make — in effect, giving away half of every plane — to giving away half of the equity in the planes. The CSeries will be controlled in Europe, it will be built in Alabama, but it will still be subsidized in Canada. (Which raises a question: what happens if Airbus sells the planes made there to Air Canada? All the Airbus deal has done is crystallize past folly. It’s true that 50 per cent of some sales is better than 100 per cent of no sales (or as Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard put it, “selling planes makes money, not selling planes makes no money”).

But hands-up if you really believed that in October we’d still be talking about Blue Bomber running back Andrew Harris’s quest to double down on history. The math: Harris needs to average 43 yards on the ground, 61.3 through the air, over the last three games. “But the other part of that, after our last game O’Shea said we need to put all our personal goals aside. “What we have on this team is a lot of guys that already know that.”That said, O’Shea says he loves that players want Harris to make history. Harris is more than happy to share the glory, too, saying the entire team would be attached to it.

“It has made a number of promises to this group of workers, their families and their widows this year. Then, earlier this year, a study by Unifor, the employees’ union, found that conditions in the GE plant contributed to an “epidemic” of workplace illnesses for those who were employed between 1945 and 2000. Aaron Lazarus, WSIB’s vice-president of communications, said since 1993, about 80 per cent of the 2,400 claims regarding GE Peterborough were allowed. Critics however have raised concerns that the number of approved cancer claims is much lower. Her hope is that Flynn will allow automatic compensation for any claims from workers who were employed between 1945 to 2000, as he has said he’s considering.

“I am aware that there was vaginal bleeding,” Dr. Andrew Healey told a hearing in Brampton Superior Court on Wednesday. But they — the doctors aligned against McKitty’s desperate family — would have us believe that their interpretation of “whole brain death” is correct. It’s a circular argument: She’s dead because we say so, because there’s no evidence of brain stem function. The doctors argue that McKitty’s movements are nothing more than a reflex and shouldn’t be mistaken for signs of life. The family accuses the doctors of rushing to harvest, focusing on the organs rather than McKitty as a human being.

LOS ANGELES — Divers are removing hundreds of old tires, plastic jugs and other junk that was dumped off the Southern California coast nearly 30 years ago by a man who thought he was helping the ocean environment. The cleanup began last week off of Newport Beach, the California Coastal Commission announced Wednesday. It’s very good for the fish.”But his research was “deeply flawed,” according to the Coastal Commission. Over the years, the Coastal Commission and the state Department of Fish and Wildlife kept tabs on the reef. Since then, divers have been pulling tires from the water at the rate of about 100 a day, according to the commission.

TORONTO — Shortly before Peter Wallace’s two and a half days in the witness stand at the Ontario gas plants trial ended Wednesday, defence lawyer Scott Hutchison asked him a question about acronyms. This being a trial about government, specifically the former Dalton McGuinty one, the case is filled with them. The former secretary to McGuinty’s cabinet took a drink of water and allowed himself the smallest of smiles. Opposition parties were baying for documents and blood; a legislative committee had demanded unprecedented disclosure of records; gas plants was all anyone at Queen’s Park was thinking about. He okayed it, but made sure Livingston also got the memo strongly recommending that any gas plant records be preserved.
