Study Finds Hydroxychloroquine May Have Boosted Survival. Other Researchers Have Doubts

"A surprising new study found the controversial antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine helped patients better survive in the hospital," reports CNN. "But the findings, like the federal government's use of the drug itself, were disputed." A team at Henry Ford Health System in southeast Michigan said Thursday their study of 2,541 hospitalized patients found that those given hydroxychloroquine were much less likely to die. Dr. Marcus Zervos, division head of infectious disease for Henry Ford Health S...

An animator built a miniature version of IBM's iconic 1401 computer system from scratch. Take a look.

A Montreal-based creator modeled a miniature replica of IBM's iconic 1401 computer system.

High antibiotic prescription rates in low- and middle-income countries may indicate misuse

Inappropriate use of antibiotics is an important driver of antimicrobial resistance, yet the extent of antibiotic prescribing in outpatient primary care settings across low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is unknown. A study published in PLOS Medicine by Giorgia Sulis and Madhukar Pai at McGill University, Montreal, Canada and colleagues found that approximately 50% of patients at primary care clinics in LMICs received at least one antibiotic, possibly suggesting widespread overprescribing.

Comment on russian honey cake by Andréanne

In reply to WK. I made this cake yesterday and I was surprised this morning when I looked in the fridge how nice it looked! The sour cream was almost solid, just like a nice buttercream. I was able to cover the cake very easily yesterday. I used 14% sour cream and a can of eagle brand for the mix. The only think that didn’t work out perfectly was the amount of batter. It was not enough as I was only able to make 5 big cookies. So I doubled it and ended up with 10 layers! I also doubled the sour ...

Claude Giroux: Hall of Fame Worthy?

The Philadelphia Flyers have had 13 Hockey Hall of Famers play for them at some point in their careers. This list includes legends, Bobby Clarke, Bernie Parent and Bill Barber. However, there might be one more Flyer legend added to the list: Claude Giroux. There is a lot of disagreement regarding Giroux’s Hall of Fame prospects. I asked hockey fans on Twitter if they thought he would be inducted and their responses were split: 50% of respondents said yes while the other 50% said no. Relat...

594 Coronavirus Impact on Airlines

The Coronavirus is heavily impacting the airlines, the entire travel industry, and global economies in general.

We also look at hiring at Boeing, a congressional committee preliminary report on the 737 MAX, aviation event cancellations, the first A220 assembled at the Mobile, Alabama plant, the gigantic...

Man gets 3 years in prison for scamming elderly by posing as grandkids needing cash

A 29-year-old man was sentenced Monday to 41 months behind bars for his role in a scheme that duped elderly residents of Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties into believing their grandchildren were in danger in foreign countries and immediately required cash. Clifford Kirstein, a Canadian citizen, pleaded guilty last year in Los Angeles federal court to a wire-fraud charge, admitting his role as a phone scammer who made calls to victims while impersonating a grandchild in desperate need of...

Greatest Montreal Canadien to Wear Each Jersey Number

Debates over these lists will rage on, but one thing Habs fans can agree upon – these players provided fans memorable moments and quirky trivia items to last a lifetime. Here are the greatest players to have worn each number for the Canadiens. 1 – Jacques ...

Today’s Couples Can Look to Joseph & Mary

Last month, we celebrated a gem of a feast, although one that is lesser known; the “Feast of the Espousal of Mary and Joseph”, also referred to as the “Feast of the Holy Spouses.” A feast in honor of the Espousal of Mary and Joseph was first celebrated on August 29, 1517, when Pope Leo X granted the Nuns of the Annunciation permission to do so. In the 19th and 20th century, other permissions were given for the observance of this feast, typically on January 23, but in a few instances it was ...

Born in Auschwitz, survivor says stories of atrocity must be told

Her mother was so malnourished that the Nazi camp guards did not even know she was pregnant. "She didn't show very much at three months, she didn't show very much at nine months, either -- I was so little, I was just one pound at birth," says Angela Orosz Richt, a survivor of Auschwitz, who was born in Nazi Germany's most infamous death camp. The 75-year-old -- now a great grandmother living in Montreal, Canada -- is one of over 200 survivors who returned to Auschwitz on Monday for a ceremony ...

Now Is the Time to Consecrate Yourself to Saint Joseph

I did not understand St. Joseph well enough, but that will change. — St. John of the Cross In the 16th century, St. John of the Cross humbly acknowledged that he lacked a proper understanding of the greatness of St. Joseph. Inspired by the tremendous love that his friend, St. Teresa of Avila, had for St. Joseph, St. John of the Cross made a firm resolution to get to know and love St. Joseph better. What about you? Do you know St. Joseph? Do you feel you understand his greatness and love...

Blues Binnington Joins Historic Company

Jordan Binnington has already accomplished a lot in his young NHL career. After emerging from the American Hockey League (AHL) as an almost forgotten San Antonio Rampage prospect, he finished his first regular season as a Calder Trophy runner up. He followed that up with the NHL’s greatest accomplishment: a Stanley Cup victory. Even after such an incredible start, questions remained about Binnington due to the limited NHL exposure he’d seen. He’s spent the 2019-20 season putting those to bed ...

Two Ways to Nudge Your Kids Toward Honesty

Parents can be surprised to discover that preschoolers start to tell lies between two and four years old. When my preschooler accidentally breaks his toys, he has been known to say that a mouse did it. Do you have a “mouse” in your house who breaks things, too? Like me, you might wonder how to help your children cultivate honesty as they get older. Researchers recently investigated this with over 200 mostly white children from Montreal, Canada, who were between five and eight years old. They...

Zendesk acquires Smooch, doubles down on support via messaging apps like WhatsApp

Now, customer support specialist Zendesk has made an acquisition so that it can make a bigger move into how it works within social media platforms, and specifically messaging apps: it has acquired Smooch, a startup that describes itself as an “omni...

Longstanding Sherman Oaks newsstand re-opens with new business model but not much news

When Tarzana resident Dana Belle bought the Sherman Oaks Newsstand three years ago – a 90-foot-long booth selling an array of local and international magazines, periodicals and newspapers – she didn’t pay much mind to the imperiled nature of the print journalism industry. “I wanted to own a piece of L.A. that’s history,” she said Monday of the business at the corner of Ventura and Van Nuys boulevards that was once a bustling outdoor library for curious-minded locals. She saw value in the nostalg...
