Twice lucky lottery win
 
02:02
Robert Hong had a better chance of opening an oyster in his Kirkland Lake restaurant and finding a pearl than winning a lottery. But he did it. Twice. Win the lottery that is - not find a pearl. On Saturday, Hong discovered he had picked all six numbers in the Lotto 6/49 draw, giving him a $15 million jackpot. Just six months ago, he had a $340,000 win with a friend. "I really couldn't believe it," Hong said after picking up his prize at the Toronto prize office on Tuesday. "To win again after such a short amount of time, I had to look at the numbers a few times and sit back and see that those were actually the winning numbers." The odds of winning the top prize are about one in 14 million. The chances of winning twice are, well, astronomical. To compare, the website Webmath.com says the odds of a woman giving birth to quadruplets are 705,000 to one, and the odds of finding that pearl are a mere 12,000 to one. Hong has put in long hours operating his family-run, third-generation restaurant in the small Northern Ontario city. He says he'll still run the restaurant but will cut back on his hours.

The RCMP has arrested about 130 people after cracking down on a telemarketing scheme in Montreal Tuesday. The Mounties raided five locations in the Montreal area, including residential homes and a downtown office building on Belmont Street. The scheme allegedly bilked about 1,500 small and medium-sized businesses in Canada, the United States and Europe, who were contacted by telemarketers posing as representatives of a government agency. The companies were charged as much as 10 times the retail value of office equipment including first aid kits, and were threatened when they didn't settle their bills, RCMP spokeswoman Elaine Laverge said. The products were sold "under pressure, and by using a lot of pressure," she said at a press conference in the city on Tuesday. The raids cap a two-year investigation triggered by complaints from affected businesses. Belmont Street is closed between Beaver Hall and University Street while police finish their raid. Union Street between Belmont and René-Levesque Boulevard is also closed for the time being, RCMP said. With files from the Canadian Press

Hockey captain found guilty
 
01:19
A jury has found former Toronto Maple Leafs captain Rob Ramage guilty of five charges stemming from a fatal auto collision in 2003, including impaired driving causing death. The jury of eight men and four women delivered the verdict Wednesday - its second day of deliberation - in a Newmarket, Ont., courtroom. "It is a tragedy for all involved, including my family," said Ramage, who will be sentenced Jan. 17. Ramage, 48, pleaded not guilty Sept. 11 to charges stemming from the fatal collision of Dec. 15, 2003, which claimed the life of former NHLer Keith Magnuson. Ramage underwent surgery for a dislocated hip after the rented Chrysler Intrepid he allegedly was driving veered into traffic and struck two vehicles near Vaughan, Ont., just north of Toronto. Magnuson, a passenger in the Intrepid, was pronounced dead at the scene. A former defenceman who spent his entire 11-year pro career with the Chicago Blackhawks, he was 56. Michelle Pacheco, whose SUV collided with Ramage's vehicle, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, while both occupants of a third car involved in the crash were uninjured. Ramage was charged with impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm, two counts of dangerous driving causing death and having a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit. A York police report alleged that Ramage and Magnuson were headed to a players' alumni meeting after attending the funeral of former NHL forward and union executive Keith McCreary, who died of cancer at age 63 on Dec. 9, 2003. The prosecution entered scientific evidence that showed Ramage had up to four times the legal blood-alcohol limit at the time of the crash, though none of the hundreds of people at the wake could verify he had a single drink. The defence argued the blood and urine tests were flawed, and any scent of beer came from cans that exploded in the accident. Ramage posted 139 goals and 564 points with 2,224 penalty minutes in 1,044 NHL games after being drafted first overall by the Colorado Rockies in 1979. The London, Ont., native played for the Rockies, St. Louis Blues, Calgary Flames, Minnesota North Stars, Tampa Bay Lightning, Montreal Canadiens, Philadelphia Flyers and Maple Leafs, which he captained from 1989-91.

Taser death details revealed

The Canada Border Services Agency is expected to face tough questions at a news conference Monday about the circumstances surrounding the death of a Polish immigrant at Vancouver International Airport last month. - Border Services officials are expected to give for the first time their account of an alleged communication breakdown on Oct. 14 in the hours before Robert Dziekanski's death. - Dziekanski died just minutes after he was given two Taser jolts and pinned down by four RCMP officers at the airport. - The 40-year-old, who did not speak fluent English, became agitated after languishing for hours in a secure customs area as his mother fruitlessly tried to get help finding him from the public side. - The incident, which was captured on video by a witness, has sparked fierce debate over the officers' actions and the use of Tasers by law enforcement agencies across the country. - Yet it is unclear where Dziekanski was during his 10 hours at the airport, what he was doing and why no translators or airport staff were on hand to assist him. - Walter Kosteskyj, a lawyer who represents Dziekanski's mother, Zofia Cisowski, told CBC News on Monday that after confirming Dziekanski's flight had arrived, a companion who had driven her to the airport was told by a CBSA official that there was no record of a Polish immigrant arriving that day. - "He was told that without breaching any confidence, there were no Polish immigrants there today and that they should go home, that he wasn't there," Kosteskyj said. - The companion said the conversation lasted four or five minutes and the border services official wasn't interested in checking Dziekanski's name, Kosteskyj added. - The exchange prompted Cisowski to return to her home in Kamloops, B.C., believing her son had missed his flight. - At least seven investigations, including a provincial inquiry and a House of Commons public safety committee investigation, have been called to probe Dziekanski's death or the use of Tasers since last month.

Nigeria typhoid endemic

Thyphoid fever is quite rare in the industrialised nations but it remains an endemic problem in most developing countries due to contaminated and unsafe food and drinking water as well as poor sewage disposal management. The samonela thyphe the culprit bacteria,the foecal oral infection is the bacteria found in faeces which is ingested through food and water has more than 2000 serotypes. Soundbite:Man Speaking(ENGLISH): "IS very common in Nigeria because of our hygienic problem because here people just urinate,pass faeces anywhere and the rain will carry this". Public health speacialists have expressed concerns about the habit of eating in outlets popularly called "bukateria" and wonder how prepared the various ministries of Health are to tackle the hygiene level of food vendors especially since the 111 year-old widal test said to be only 25% accurate is being rejected. Soundbite:Health Speacialist Speaking(ENGLISH): "A directorate of occupational health and safety that we have in the Ministry of Health now one of its main priorities is to make sure that at the primary level the people that are feeding us ,the people that are handling our food and that goes all the way from the abbattoirs to the person that is selling rice at the side of the road that they do so having undergone some sort of preliminary training". Anyone diagnosed with typhoid fever which can perforate the intestines if untreated is advised to seek a second opinion as chloramphenical has been deliseted by WHO because of suspicions that it could cause leukemia. With 17 million new cases of thphoid fever evry year,the President of the Global Council on Wter Diseases who's also a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School in the United States of America has invented the typhoid check kit. Soundbite:Professor Speaking(ENGLISH): "We came up with this in typhoid check,which literarily what it does is it looks for anti-germ or the bacterium which is samonela thyphe from the stools. Again if you look at the biology and also the transmissions of these organisms it goes from what you ingest in that contaminated water,contaminated food and everything and it gets into the stomach". The socio-economic impact of typhoid cannot be quantified as there are many healthy carriers who distribute the bactria unknowingly. Brought to you by Mediascrape.
