PHOENIX - Officials with Apple Inc. announced on May 10 that the company will discontinue the last product on its iPod line, thus bringing an entire product line to an end after decades on the market."Music has always been part of our core at Apple, and bringing it to hundreds of millions of users in the way iPod did, impacted more than just the music industry — it also redefined how music is discovered, listened to, and shared," said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, in a statement released on May 10.Here's what you should know about the once sought-after music player.iPod, as released in 2001 (Photo Courtesy: Apple Inc.) In a statement published by Apple in 2001, officials describe the product as a "breakthrough MP3 music player.""With iPod, Apple has invented a whole new category of digital music player that lets you put your entire music collection in your pocket and listen to it wherever you go," said Apple's then-CEO, Steve Jobs, in the statement. "With iPod, listening to music will never be the same again."The first iteration of the iPod was made available for purchase in November 2001, a month after the product was announced to the public.

Why is China ‘buzzing’ Canadian, Australian planes? Here’s what you need to know
Chinese fighter jet pilots “buzzing” Canadian and Australian planes have broader implications for countering Chinese aggression in the Asia-Pacific region and efforts to enforce sanctions on North Korea.Experts say China’s behaviour in the skies above international waters is another example of its “bullying” tactics as it seeks to claim more territory beyond its traditional borders.“It’s not out of character for the new China that we’ve been seeing,” said Margaret McCuaig-Johnston, a senior fellow at the University of Ottawa’s Institute for Science, Society and Policy who studies China.“Under Xi Jinping we’ve seen a much more aggressive China, and we’re seeing it play out in all kinds of ways. … It has many layers to it, and this buzzing of Western planes is one more.”The dispute over exactly what constitutes Chinese airspace also risks international efforts to monitor United Nations sanctions on North Korea, those experts warn, further ratcheting up tensions in an already tense region of the world.Global News first reported, citing multiple government sources, that Chinese jets have repeatedly flown so close to a Canadian surveillance plane in the Asia-Pacific region that Canadian pilots could make eye contact with Chinese pilots, who have sometimes shown their middle fingers.Sources told Global News there have been approximately 60 of these types of intercepts with Chinese fighter jets since Christmas.

Higher intensity group exercise may increase COVID-19 infection risk, study says

ATAGI recommendations on first booster dose in adolescents aged 12-15 years
1-3 There is currently insufficient evidence that a first booster dose provides additional protection against severe disease for most children and adolescents in this age group.Adolescents aged 12-15 years who are at an increased risk of severe disease may receive a first booster dose From first principles, ATAGI have identified three groups of adolescents aged 12-15 years who may be at greater risk of severe disease from COVID-19 compared to their peers:A first booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine may offer additional protection against severe disease, noting the overall risk of admission to an intensive care unit and death in this age group remains very low.1-3 There have been no confirmed deaths from COVID-19 in Australian adolescents aged 12-15 years during the period of Omicron predominance.1,2 Most European and North American countries have also recorded no deaths except for England (1), Denmark (5), and the United States (17).3 These data reflect deaths in adolescents aged 12-15 years with concurrent SARS-CoV-2 since February 1, 2022, and do not necessarily attribute cause of death to COVID-19.Myocarditis following vaccination remains rare. Data from the United States and Israel suggest the risk of myocarditis following a third dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in male adolescents aged 12-15 years ranges from 1 in 11 000-58 000 doses.

COVID-19: Here’s how Toronto’s mask rules are changing as more Ontario requirements lift
Toronto is making some changes to its COVID-19 masking requirements after the provincial government announced it would be lifting most remaining mask mandates on Saturday.The province’s chief medical officer of health issued a statement Wednesday saying most of Ontario’s existing masking mandates will be lifted, but masks will still be required in long-term care and retirement homes. Most remaining Ontario COVID mask mandates lifting on Saturday In a press release, the City of Toronto said, based on public health advice, masks will “continued to be required in some City of Toronto congregate settings to protect the health and safety of residents and staff.”According to the city, masks will continue to be required in long-term care homes and retirement homes, and will be recommended in congregate living settings like shelters or group homes.The city said on June 11, the provincial government will issue guidance on when masks should be worn in hospitals and other care settings.Here’s a closer look at some other changes in the city:According to the release, masking, screening and testing requirements will continue in “all city directly-operated long-term care homes at this time.”The city said the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is “strongly recommending” customers continue to wear masks on its vehicles and in stations.What’s more, the city said masks will remain mandatory for both employees and customers using TTC’s Wheel-Trans service.The city said once the mask mandate expires later this week, masks will be “optional” on Go Transit and UP Express.
