On July 28, 2014 the media reported News

The Vancouver Sun reports in its Saturday edition an Ontario judge has agreed to hear a Charter of Rights challenge brought by Telus and Rogers after they were asked by police in April to release cellphone information of about 40,000 to 50,000 customers as part of an investigation. A Canadian Press dispatch to The Sun quotes Mr. Justice John Sproat as saying the case has highlighted important issues about privacy and law enforcement that should be challenged in open court. "The privacy rights of the tens of thousands of cell phone users is of obvious importance," Judge Sproat wrote in his ruling. "Counsel for Rogers-Telus will be able to identify and argue Charter issues that might not otherwise be evident."

Some times a call will be transferred from tower to tower, providing information about the phone's movements. Each of the production orders presented to Telus and Rogers required the name and address of every subscriber making or attempting a communication through the specified towers. The orders also required billing information that could include bank and credit card info. Telus told the court that the order would require it to disclose the information of at least 9,000 individuals.

The Ford Edsel

The Edsel was an automobile marque by the Ford Motor Company during the 1958, 1959, and 1960 model years. With the Edsel, Ford expected to make significant inroads into the market share of both General Motors and Chrysler.

The Edsel never gained popularity with contemporary American car buyers and sold poorly. The Ford Motor Company lost millions of dollars on the Edsel's development, manufacturing and marketing.

The very word "Edsel" became a popular symbol for failure.
Ford announced the end of the Edsel program November 19, 1959. Total Edsel sales were approximately 116,000, less than half the company's projected break-even point. The company lost $350 million, or the equivalent of $2.8b in 2014 dollars. 118,287 Edsels were built, including 7,440 produced in Ontario. By U.S. auto industry standards, these production figures were dismal, particularly when spread across a run of three model years.

Historians have advanced several theories in an effort to explain the Edsel's failure. Popular culture often faults the car’s styling. Consumer Reports has alleged that poor workmanship was the Edsel's chief problem.

Marketing experts hold the Edsel up as a supreme example of the corporate culture’s failure to understand American consumers.

Ancient Gold found at Kingsmead Quarry

Investigations at Kingsmead Quarry, Horton, Berkshire, have revealed a complex archaeological landscape and evidence that people had used the area since the end of the last Ice Age, a period of over 12,000 years.

Some of the oldest gold ever discovered in Britain along with a 4,300-year-old woman were found buried at a quarry with Ice Age origins.

Flint blades from 12,000 years ago and the strongest evidence of Neolithic housing in Britain – including two “exceptional” homes from the period and three thought to have had upper storeys – have been among the finds. A selection of the artefacts are being displayed at the Windsor and Royal Borough Museum.

'Beaker' burials date to at least the 'Copper Age' (2500-2200 BC). Found within the grave were gold ornaments (five tubular beads), along with 29 bead fragments of amber and 30 beads of black lignite.
Beaker using communities lived across Europe around 2,500 BC around about the time of Stonehenge.

In more Western regions, such as Britain, they were the first people to use copper and gold. (giving rise to the term Copper Age or Chalcolithic). They buried their people in special ways, characteristically with a distinctive type of pot, known to archaeologists as a beaker. They were also buried with other fine objects such as metal, stone and bone.
