CALGARY – A man high on fentanyl or some similar powerful opioid caused a series of hit-and-runs on a Calgary expressway and almost overdosed before being revived, city police said Thursday.The growing use of new synthetic opioids that can be lethal even in very small amounts has led to more motorists being found severely impaired and near death, according to some emergency responders.“We’ve had cases where people have pulled over as they’ve gone into … cardiac arrest,” said Alex Forrest, head of the United Fire Fighters of Winnipeg union.“People think they can drive (while on opioids), they’re looking after children. They believe they can handle it.”Calgary police Insp. Ken Thrower said it was a “miracle” no one was seriously injured or killed in the collisions Wednesday night.Motorists called 911 to report an erratic driver who was colliding with other vehicles.The driver eventually crashed. When officers got to the scene, they revived him with naloxone — a drug used to prevent overdoses from powerful opioids such as fentanyl.“They revived him and prevented him from overdosing,” Thrower said. “The officers had trained and administered that properly and may have well saved the individual’s life.”Police laid charges of impaired driving and careless driving.Calgary police are receiving more reports of drug-impaired driving including opioids, cannabis and other less-powerful drugs.Thrower said the increase may be due to more public awareness about the dangers of drug-impaired driving, similar to the growing public response to drunk driving.Forrest said first responders in Winnipeg respond to opioid-related calls virtually every day, including in homes and vehicles.Police forces across the country have warned of the growing use of opioids such as fentanyl, a synthetic drug 100 times more powerful than heroin, and its even more-powerful relative, carfentanil.Mothers Against Drunk Driving said it has seen a big increase in drug-related driving offences, but the vast majority involve softer drugs such as cannabis.“I think the reason why you see so much cannabis is because a lot of young people use it and they don’t see it as impairing as alcohol, so they’re willing to take the risk of … getting behind the wheel,” said the group’s chief executive officer,” Andrew Murie.“I think with other drugs … the impairment is so severe that I don’t think most of those users see driving as an option.”The federal and provincial governments have stepped up efforts to detect and deter drug-impaired driving with the looming legalization of marijuana next year.New roadside saliva-test kits that can detect a wide variety of drugs are being implemented and public awareness campaigns are being planned.In Saskatchewan alone, 56 police officers are trained as drug recognition officers, with 18 more scheduled for training soon, according to RCMP.Murie called on provincial governments to ensure licence-suspension rules are tough enough for when marijuana becomes legal.He said one example would be a zero-tolerance requirement for cannabis for new drivers under 21, similar to the rules for alcohol.“The provinces have been a little slow … but we’re getting indications that they’re moving on that.”— By Steve Lambert in Winnipeg with files from Jennifer Graham in Regina.
New Delhi: Delhi Police on Friday said that officers from Vasant Kunj police station busted a gang of highway robbers, arresting one of their members on March 11 from a village in Sohna, Haryana. The case was picked up by police following the complaint of one of their victims, who was held captive by the accused for more than six hours. Police said that the accused, Arshad Khan (28), used to drive in a taxi near Mahipalpur on NH-8 with his associates, looking to rob citizens under the pretext of giving them a ride. “The team got a tip-off about Khan’s whereabouts, following which they conducted raids and arrested him,” said police.

This year, the tournament will have at least one undefeated team: Princeton, which finished its regular season 30-0 with a 55-42 win over Penn on Tuesday.Most of the prior 14 teams to enter the tournament undefeated had far better pedigrees. Ten were ranked No. 1 entering the tournament, and eight left the tournament as undefeated champions. The only reason last year’s Notre Dame team didn’t enter the tournament as No. 1 or exit it as undefeated champ was that it faced another undefeated team in the final: UConn.Unlike UConn and Notre Dame last season, which were the clear top-two teams entering the tournament, Princeton won’t even be favored to advance from its region. None of its wins came against teams now ranked in the Top 25. Its conference schedule was a breeze: Penn was the only other Ivy League team with a winning conference record, and just Cornell joined Princeton and Penn with a winning overall record.Princeton’s nonconference schedule wasn’t all that hard, either. After Tuesday’s regular-season finale, senior guard Blake Dietrick said she started thinking 30-0 was possible when the Tigers beat Michigan by 30 in Ann Arbor. Dietrick called the December game “a monumental win for us against a nonconference team.” But Michigan finished 16-14, with a losing record in the Big Ten. Princeton is ranked 13th in the country, behind five teams with five or more losses.Princeton is more similar historically to three undefeated teams in the 1990s that were seeded No. 8 or worse and lost in the first round: Vermont in 1992 and 1993, and 1998 Liberty, which was knocked out by fellow undefeated team Tennessee. But Princeton will probably do better than those three teams did — it likely will be ranked higher in the final pre-tournament AP poll, and it has a greater margin of victory.Finishing in first isn’t the highest-priority goal for Princeton, which mainly wants to become the first Ivy League team since Harvard to win a game in the tournament. “That is No. 1 on our list right now, second is finishing my thesis,” Dietrick said. “It’s the thing I want to do most in the world, most in my life.”Below is each undefeated women team’s record, ranking and seed entering the NCAA tournament, along with how it finished, courtesy of ESPN Stats & Info: 1998LibertyBig South28-0—18.3161st round 2014Notre DameACC32-0225.61Finalist 2015PrincetonIvy30-013*24.9—— 2009ConnecticutBig East33-0131.51Champion 1992VermontAmerica East29-02521.991st round 2002ConnecticutBig East33-0137.01Champion 1998TennesseeSEC33-0131.11Champion 1986TexasSouthwest29-0127.41Champion 2014ConnecticutAmerican Ath.34-0135.71Champion 1990Louisiana TechAmerican So.29-0135.21Final Four
Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic refuses to give up on their Champions League hopes following Tuesday’s first leg defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the last-16.The Red Devils were left outclassed at Old Trafford by a PSG side lacking star duo Neymar and Edinson Cavani in the lineup.The major turning point in the game came in the second half with former United winger Angel Di Maria returning to haunt his old club by assisting Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe for both of PSG’s goals.It enabled the Ligue 1 champions to leave with a 2-0 aggregate lead and hand Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his first defeat as caretaker boss in his 12th match in charge.But Matic insists that United now have nothing to lose for the return leg next month and will be giving it their all to cause an upset.“It was a difficult game for us,” Matic told UEFA.“Obviously when you lose it’s disappointing but I think we played some good football in the 90 minutes and of course in the second half when it was 2-0 it was hard for us.“They had more space to play as we had to risk more, but we have to respect them, they have great players, they are a good team.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“We will go to Paris to try to do something. We don’t have anything to lose so we will try to go there to play good football and try to win of course.”The second leg between PSG and United will take place at the Parc Des Princes in France on March 6.For now, Solskjaer’s men will need to quickly recoup from this setback for Monday’s trip to Stamford Bridge, where they will take on Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup.Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial are doubts for the match after coming off on Tuesday night with injuries.Next up: Chelsea away in the #EmiratesFACup. #MUFC pic.twitter.com/yLOxIIMrD8— Manchester United (@ManUtd) February 13, 2019
#Metoo-movement-type complaint, now investigation of high-ranking TCI Police Officer opened Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, December 29, 2017 – Grand Turk – British support and intervention in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria is being cited as a ‘game changing’ factor at Her Majesty’s Prison. One observer of conditions at the facility noted overall improvements despite some prickly times between the UK prison officers, inmates and TCI prison guards.It is explained to #MagneticMedia that “the presence of the new UK prison officers working at the prison in recent months is working.”It is also shared that, “for the first time in nearly two decades… the prison population has reached its lowest count to only about 85 inmates in total including the six or seven female prisoners. Normally at Christmas and the New years the prison is over crowded…”Hurricane Irma on September 7, 2017 ripped up the facility including a roof. Severe damage was confirmed. Inmates had escaped briefly during the storm and chaos erupted, forcing Police Tactical Unit officers to be called in with firm, even frightening orders – reportedly to have come from the Governor.The addition of 20 UK prison officers in October evoked a mix of apprehension and confidence. The troop from the United Kingdom conducted trainings and bolstered manpower at HMP. Our source shares that “early next month, joining the prison staff will be up to seven Jamaican prison officers for 2-3 years and some permanent UK officers.”The #HMPrison, like other Government-run sites around the country is still damaged with no rebuilding work yet started since the catastrophic storms of September.
