On a cold Toronto day in late November, Const. Jason Kirkwood heard someone calling his name as he walked down the street after leaving a bank machine.

"I saw it was Danny, and I thought, 'Uh-oh,' as I know he saw me at the bank machine," Kirkwood said.

He has known Danny MacKillop for about five years through his work with homeless people and those living with addictions.

Kirkwood is a special constable assigned to Toronto Community Housing. MacKillop, 38, is from Reserve Mines, Cape Breton, and struggled with heroin and fentanyl addictions.

"He asked me how much I had taken out. Then he asked me to count it."

Kirkwood said he was guarded as he took out his money, as he figured MacKillop would want some. But then he realized he only had $120 of the $160 he had taken out.

Then MacKillop pulled both hands out of his pockets with $20 in each, saying the officer had forgotten the cash in the machine.

"I said, 'Wow, Danny, thanks,'" said Kirkwood.

He gave him some money and went on his way.

"I thought wow, that was pretty amazing for someone who is a substance user and has no source of real income, to give me back my money. So I wrote about it on Facebook."

A few weeks later, he ran into MacKillop again and told him that he'd written a blurb on Facebook about his kind deed.

Kirkwood said MacKillop asked if he would do him a favour and tag him on the note, "'so my mom doesn't think I'm such a bad guy.'"

Facebook is testing a downvote button, but only for comment moderation

  Facebook is testing a downvote button, but only for comment moderation Today, screenshots depicting a new “downvote” button on Facebook began circulating on Twitter, leading some to speculate that the social network is actively testing a ranking mechanism similar to Reddit’s community-controlled comment system. The company has officially confirmed the test to The Verge, but a Facebook spokesperson says it’s only intended to be a method for flagging questionable comments on public posts. Tapping the downvote button hides the comment for the user who taps it, then asks them to say whether the comment was “offensive,” “misleading,” or “off topic.

Your mother is afraid to lose you , you stated that she nearly lost you when you were young, that After I had my second child (my son ) my mother would constantly ask if we’d have anymore, it to the point that a cop comes into the bathroom youre hiding in (b/c thats the last door youre parents

"I tagged him and then my page exploded with messages from Cape Breton," said Kirkwood.

One of those many messages was from Mary MacKillop, Danny's mother.

She hadn't seen her son in eight years, or been in touch with him for almost two.

"I was dazed," said Mary MacKillop. "I was trying to put it all together in my mind, like, oh my God, he's there, I gotta go."

She went to Toronto to find him and searched the streets with her sister.

"We checked every soup kitchen, every hostel, spoke to the security guard at different places."

As it got dark, Mary decided to end the search for the day.

Then, the almost impossible happened.

'Hey, I know you — you're my mother'

"This man passed me by and said, 'Hey, I know you — you're my mother,'" said Mary.

She said several days later, with the help of many of Danny's friends, he made it to a rehabilitation facility in Vancouver. Mary said her son had tried various rehab centres in the past, to no avail. This time, she said, he really wants to get clean.

"Danny is calling me every day. Every day, he sounds more positive."

Kirkwood calls Danny the hero in this story after that moment with the money — and wishes him the best.

"Three words for Danny: You got this," said Kirkwood.

Mary plans to go to Vancouver in a few months to see Danny.

"Now that I've found him, I don't want to lose him."

Facebook admits SMS notifications sent using two-factor number was caused by bug .
Facebook this evening clarified the situation around SMS notifications sent using the company’s two-factor authentication (2FA) system, admitting that the messages were indeed caused by a bug. Facebook uses the automated number 362-65, or “FBOOK,” as its two-factor authentication number, which is a secure way of confirming a user’s identity by sending a numeric code to a secondary device like a mobile phone. That same number ended up sending users Facebook notifications without their consent. When users would attempt to get the SMS notifications to stop, the replies were posted to their own Facebook profiles as status updates.
