Union challenges move to end Canada door-to-door mail

The union representing Canadian postal workers Wednesday challenged the post office's controversial decision to phase out door-to-door mail delivery, saying in court filings that it is unconstitutionalThe move aims to save 8,000 postal jobs which the Canadian Union of Postal Workers estimates will be lost if Canadians are forced to collect their mail from community mailboxes. Union boss Denis Lemelin told AFP the elimination of home delivery discriminates against the elderly and handicapped because it limits their access to a public service. Canada Post has not yet filed a statement of defense. Two-thirds of Canadian households -- those in newer suburbs, towns or rural parts -- already receive mail delivery through community mailboxes or roadside kiosks.

At least 10 dead as migrant boat capsizes off Sicily

Migrants wait to disembark from a ship on March 4, 2015 after a rescue operation off the coast of Sicily on March 3A boat capsized off Sicily when the migrants aboard rushed to meet rescuers, killing at least 10 people, the Italian coastguard said Wednesday. "The migrants, as they frequently do, all rushed to one side of the boat which then capsized," Italian coast guard spokesman Filippo Marini told TV station SkyTG24, adding that many of the passengers did not know how to swim. The accident happened after a tugboat for Libyan oil platforms alerted authorities to the boat and an Italian coastguard vessel -- already transporting 318 migrants who had been rescued earlier -- headed to the scene. The group of migrants, primarily from Syria, Mali, Nigeria and The Gambia, were taken to Porto Empedocle in Sicily.

The design studio behind Monument Valley is rethinking in-car displays

The design studio behind Monument Valley is rethinking in-car displaysFor most, Ustwo is best known for its breakout mobile hit, Monument Valley — but the company is also an accomplished design studio. As part of a partnership with car design consultancy CDR, Ustwo took a hard look at instrument clusters, offering up a few fundamental redesigns for how we interpret speed and other critical information while we're driving. The company notes that even in the digital age, instrument clusters are presently quite skeuomorphic — digital speedometers typically resemble analog ones, and so on — but the freedom afforded by an LCD display means that there's probably an opportunity to try other things that make more sense. The problem is that ornamented instrument clusters, digital or analog, are a critical part of a car's branding and identity, particularly as you move upmarket.

UK scientists work out weight of Sophie the Stegosaurus

This undated handout photo issued by the Natural History Museum, shows an artist's impression of how Sophie, the world's most complete Stegosaurus skeleton, may have looked. Scientists at a British museum have worked out the weight of Sophie, one of the world’s most complete Stegosaurus skeletons, it was reported on Wednesday, March 4, 2015. London’s Natural History Museum says Sophie, a young adult when it died, weighed around 1.6 tons and was about the same size as a small rhinoceros. The scientists worked out the dinosaur's body mass after creating a 3D digital version of its skeleton, calculating the volume of flesh around the bones, and comparing the data with information from similar-sized modern animals. (AP Photo/PA, Bob Nicholls/Natural History Museum)LONDON (AP) — Scientists at a British museum have worked out the living weight of Sophie, one of the world's most complete Stegosaurus skeletons.

"We are extremely grateful that David has chosen to focus his generosity on the transformation of this venerable concert hall for a new era,” Katherine Farley, chairwoman of Lincoln Center, said in a statement. -- read full article

Ohio reaches deal with maker of heroin overdose antidote
The maker of a heroin overdose antidote used by police in many states will give rebates to state and local agencies in Ohio after the state's top law enforcement official criticized a spike in the price of the drug. California-based Amphastar Pharmaceuticals Inc will offer a $6 rebate for each dose of the drug, naloxone, bought by non-federal public entities in Ohio in the next year, Attorney General Mike DeWine said Wednesday. Amphastar has also agreed to increase the rebate to match any further price increases in the next year, DeWine said. Law enforcement officials nationwide have embraced its use in the midst of an increase in opioid abuse, which U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has called an "urgent and growing public health crisis." The wholesale price of the drug, which hovered around $14 per dose in 2013 and early 2014, shot up to $28.50 by October, DeWine wrote in a letter in February to Amphastar asking it to cut the price of naloxone for public entities. -- read full article
