Elder Abuse Sentences to be toughened

Elder Abuse

“Our Government has a responsibility to protect elderly Canadians,

“This legislation will help ensure tough sentences for those who take advantage of vulnerable members of our society.”

There are already similar provisions under the Code for other vulnerable persons,

Such as minors,

Nearly one-in-10 seniors’ experience some form of abuse

But it’s often not reported.

Public awareness initiatives are always welcome

More is needed, or course, to detect, investigate, prosecute

And ultimately end elder abuse!

Antihydrogen undergoes its first-ever measurement

Could finally give up its secrets

Every particle has an antiparticle
The electron has the positron
The proton has the antiproton
Except opposite charge

An antiproton and a positron
The simplest anti-atom

The antimatter hydrogen
The simplest anti-atom
Could finally give up its secrets

Trapping an antihydrogen atom
It's finally possible
Scientists expect its secrets

MLB Widens Post-Season Field To 10 With Wild-Card Playoff

Baseball at last decided
Who's in and who's out
The long-expected decision
Expanding the playoff format to 10 teams

Come October
A new one-game, wild-card round
Between teams who are not division winners
Come October
Even a third-place team can win the World Series

This is the first switch since 1995
It's a good thing for baseball
A good thing

As long as the playoffs
Don’t get watered down
But that won't happen
It's a good thing for baseball

He said
The more, the merrier
I like the extra spot
I understand why they're doing it

That seems to be what the people want
Teams who are not division winners
Watered down playoffs won't happen in baseball

He said
I hope we get that extra spot
Hopefully, we're that playoff team
I think it's great

Expanding official
Schedules already drawn
It's a good thing for baseball
Seems to be what the people want

He said
I like the extra spot
I didn't think that the next round was cheapened
I didn't think that
