BK in Canada lost a lawsuit should have lost more money IMHO.


WTF is wrong with these ppl?

A B.C. Supreme Court judge has sided with a former Burger King employee who was fired after taking home approximately fifty cents worth of food.
Usha Ram, who had worked with the fast food chain for 24 years, was awarded $46,000 in a wrongful dismissal lawsuit. The 55-year-old was earning minimum wage as a cook at a Burger King restaurant in Vancouver when she was let go from her job.

According to court documents, Ram has little education and struggles with English. She had finished her shift on Dec. 27, 2013 when she realized that she had forgotten her wallet at home. She asked her general manager, Tayyaba Salman, if she could have some food. When Salman apparently agreed, Ram took a fish sandwich, medium-sized fries and a drink.
In court, Salman testified that she believed Ram only asked for a sandwich, not fries and a drink. Salman, who was apparently busy with a customer at the time, confirmed that Ram made no effort to hide the food she was taking.

Meanwhile the restaurant’s co-owner, Janif Mohammed, argued that he was within his rights to fire Ram because she had been caught stealing.
In Justice Lisa Warren’s ruling, she noted that since the price of a fish sandwich at Burger King was discounted for employees, the loss to Mohammed would have equaled about 50 cents. She ruled in Ram’s favour after finding there was a lack of evidence that Ram’s actions were premeditated. Warren also added that the restaurant’s zero-tolerance for theft could have been enforced through less serious actions, like a formal letter of reprimand.

Italian doctor may have found surprisingly simple cure for Multiple Sclerosis

more. faster. please.

this could help millions of people …

An Italian doctor has been getting dramatic results with a new type of treatment for Multiple Sclerosis, or MS, which affects up to 2.5 million people worldwide. In an initial study, Dr. Paolo Zamboni took 65 patients with relapsing-remitting MS, performed a simple operation to unblock restricted bloodflow out of the brain – and two years after the surgery, 73% of the patients had no symptoms. Dr. Zamboni’s thinking could turn the current understanding of MS on its head, and offer many sufferers a complete cure.
Multiple sclerosis, or MS, has long been regarded as a life sentence of debilitating nerve degeneration. More common in females, the disease affects an estimated 2.5 million people around the world, causing physical and mental disabilities that can gradually destroy a patient’s quality of life.

t’s generally accepted that there’s no cure for MS, only treatments that mitigate the symptoms – but a new way of looking at the disease has opened the door to a simple treatment that is causing radical improvements in a small sample of sufferers.
Italian Dr. Paolo Zamboni has put forward the idea that many types of MS are actually caused by a blockage of the pathways that remove excess iron from the brain – and by simply clearing out a couple of major veins to reopen the blood flow, the root cause of the disease can be eliminated.

Dr. Zamboni’s revelations came as part of a very personal mission – to cure his wife as she began a downward spiral after diagnosis. Reading everything he could on the subject, Dr. Zamboni found a number of century-old sources citing excess iron as a possible cause of MS. It happened to dovetail with some research he had been doing previously on how a buildup of iron can damage blood vessels in the legs – could it be that a buildup of iron was somehow damaging blood vessels in the brain?
He immediately took to the ultrasound machine to see if the idea had any merit – and made a staggering discovery. More than 90% of people with MS have some sort of malformation or blockage in the veins that drain blood from the brain. Including, as it turned out, his wife.

He formed a hypothesis on how this could lead to MS: iron builds up in the brain, blocking and damaging these crucial blood vessels. As the vessels rupture, they allow both the iron itself, and immune cells from the bloodstream, to cross the blood-brain barrier into the cerebro-spinal fluid. Once the immune cells have direct access to the immune system, they begin to attack the myelin sheathing of the cerebral nerves – Multiple Sclerosis develops.
He named the problem Chronic Cerebro-Spinal Venous Insufficiency, or CCSVI.
Zamboni immediately scheduled his wife for a simple operation to unblock the veins – a catheter was threaded up through blood vessels in the groin area, all the way up to the effected area, and then a small balloon was inflated to clear out the blockage. It’s a standard and relatively risk-free operation – and the results were immediate. In the three years since the surgery, Dr. Zamboni’s wife has not had an attack.

The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) intends to list Aloe vera, whole leave extract and Goldenseal root powder as known to the state to cause cancer under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 651). This action is being proposed pursuant to the “Labor Code” listing mechanism2. OEHHA has determined that these chemicals meet the criteria for listing by this mechanism.
