    European regulator proposes hack protection, geo-awareness for drones

    Europe's aviation safety authority has proposed anti-hacking measures and geo-awareness technology for small drones to avoid collisions with aircraft or people, taking an important step toward Europe-wide regulation. The reworked proposal published by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on Thursday, which will be the basis for the European Commission to adopt concrete rules later in the year, includes requirements for drones to be remotely identifiable and to recognize when they stray into banned areas. Risks posed by the increasing use of drones were highlighted in October when a drone hit an aircraft landing at a Canadian airport, and there have been several near-misses between drones and passenger planes in Europe.

    Barriers to education start early for people with disabilities, report says

    Manitobans with disabilities still face significant barriers to education — and therefore jobs — despite gains made in recent years, says a report released Wednesday. The report found significant lack of access to qualified staff for children with disabilities at all education levels, not enough support and education for school staff, a lack of awareness of protocols when helping students with disabilities make the transition from one level to the next and widespread bullying as the highest concerns. "Absolutely not surprising," said Lani Zastre, a parents advocate with Barrier-Free Manitoba, when asked about the results of the report.

Rovio blamed increased marketing costs and other investments for the gloomier outlook. "That guidance is nowhere near the growth they previously talked about," said a fund manager with Rovio stock who declined to be named.

    Britain warns of Islamic State attacks in South Africa after couple kidnapped

    By James Macharia JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Britain has warned of a threat of attacks by Islamists on foreigners in South Africa after two British nationals were kidnapped in a small town there, but South African police said they had no evidence militants were behind the incident.

No attack followed a similar warning by Britain and the United States in June 2016.

    Florida eye doctor gets 17 years for Medicare fraud

    A prominent Florida eye doctor once accused of bribing Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey received a 17-year sentence Thursday for stealing $73 million from Medicare by persuading elderly patients to undergo excruciating tests and treatments they didn't need for diseases they didn't have. Dr. Salomon Melgen was convicted of 67 crimes including health care fraud, submitting false claims and falsifying records in patients' files. Prosecutors showed that between 2008 and 2013, he became the nation's highest-paid Medicare doctor, building his practice by giving elderly patients unnecessary eye injections and laser blasts on their retinas that some compared to torture.

    With roughly 20 per cent of land in Surrey, B.C., sitting on a coastal floodplain threatened by climate change, the city is preparing for rising water levels that could severely damage residential neighbourhoods, businesses, natural habitats and infrastructure. Mayor Linda Hepner says work is underway on a Coastal Flood Adaptation Strategy that will help determine what kind of mitigation work needs to be done immediately and what can be put off into the distant future. "We do have an effective system that works well today but some of those key drainage features that are protecting us were developed more than 100 years ago," Hepner said.
