Apple accuses Qualcomm of patent infringement in countersuit

  Apple accuses Qualcomm of patent infringement in countersuit Apple has denied the claims that it violated Qualcomm's battery life patents and alleged that Qualcomm's patents were invalid, a common move in such cases. But on Wednesday, in a filing in U.S. District Court in San Diego, Apple revised its answer to Qualcomm's complaint with accusations of its own. Apple alleges it owns at least eight battery life patents that Qualcomm has violated.The Apple patents involve ensuring each part of a phone's processor draws only the minimum power needed, turning off parts of the processor when they are not needed and making sleep and wake functions work better.

Mother to launch complaint after Toronto teacher allegedly compares son to a 'crackhead'© Submitted by Abigail Francis Mother to launch complaint after Toronto teacher allegedly compares son to a 'crackhead'

A Toronto mother says she plans to file a formal complaint after a substitute teacher at an elementary school allegedly made a racist remark to her 11-year-old son.

It's been more than a week since Abigail Francis's son Isaiah, a Grade 6 student, was stunned by the response from the teacher at Norman Cook Public School.

It began like any other English assignment.

Isaiah and his class had been assigned a poetry exercise called, "All the places we love" on Nov. 28.

He didn't quite understand the assignment, and asked the teacher for clarification. The alleged response left him speechless, according to his mother.

"It means like home sweet home. Or maybe for you, in a dark alleyway like a crackhead," Francis says the teacher told him.

Shocked, Isaiah returned to his seat trying to make sense of what he just heard, his mother says.

That's when Francis says one of his classmates told him, "Listen dude, that wasn't okay. If I had gone up and asked the same question, he wouldn't have said that to me because I'm white."

Isaiah, his mother points out, is half-black, half-Indian and one of just three black students in his class.

Isaiah says he felt hurt.

"When he said what he said it felt weird and wrong, and that he was directing it to me, I felt offended," he says.

Some classmates went with him to the principal's office and corroborated his story.

"Having my friends talk about it with me made me feel a little bit better," Isaiah says. "I felt nervous to go to the office but my friends being there helped me feel more confident."

SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy launch has been pushed to next year

  SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy launch has been pushed to next year SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket has been gearing up for its inaugural launch for quite some time, but multiple delays keep pushing that event later and later. In an email to Aviation Week, SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell said, "We wanted to fly Heavy this year. We should be able to static fire this year and fly a couple of weeks right after that." The static fire test will be the first time that all of Heavy's 27 Merlin engines will be fired at once. And if all goes well there, Falcon Heavy should be ready for launch within the first few weeks of 2018.

When Isaiah came home, he told his mother what had happened and what his fellow classmate said to him.

"He put into words exactly what Isaiah felt," Francis said.

'Completely unacceptable' if true

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) says it is aware of the "troubling" allegations and that staff are "actively investigating to determine what happened."

"If the allegation is founded, it is completely unacceptable and goes against the considerable work the TDSB is doing to combat racism, bias and oppression," said TDSB spokesman Ryan Bird.

Francis did not have the teacher's full name until after CBC Toronto reached out to the school board on Wednesday. Without it, she could not file a formal complaint, though an investigation was already underway.

Francis says some people have questioned how she could take the word of a child at face value. She says she has no reason not to — Isaiah normally holds things in.

University sexual harassment victim kept in dark over whether professor was punished

  University sexual harassment victim kept in dark over whether professor was punished Véronique Pronovost still lacks closure three years after filing a complaint with her university against a professor who sexually harassed her. The school is keeping her in the dark about how — or even if — the professor was disciplined. ​"Why would victims go forward and make a complaint if they don't get anything back in terms of closure or anything like that at the end of the process?" Pronovost said to CBC News. Pronovost was a master's student at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in 2011 when the alleged incidents took place. Her story points to the challenge facing universities in Quebec and across the country.

Getting him to open up is usually "like a dentist trying to extract a tooth," she says, adding that his story has has not changed after repeated interviews by the school.

"The statement was really specific," she said.

Trying to find closure

Francis wants to know whether the teacher will have to apologize, whether he'll be forced to undergo sensitivity training, and whether he could end up in another classroom where another student could find themselves on the receiving end of such a remark.

"These are things that are important ... then I can turn around and tell Isaiah and it can then bring closure to the situation," she said.

The TDSB says it's too soon to know what the outcome of the investigation will be, though both the board's director and superintendent have apologized to Francis.

She says the work of building back her son's morale is just beginning.

"I've spent so much time just building his confidence, only to have this one man remove that from him was painful."
