An Al-Jazeera America investigation airing Saturday night spotlights heroin use and prescription drug addiction in Portland and Bangor.
The episode of the television network’s series “Fault Lines” looks at the use of opioid painkillers and links to heroin use. Maine has one of the highest rates of prescription painkiller addiction in the country.
The producer of the piece, Sam Black, is from Portland.
The half-hour episode, “Opioid Wars,” will air at 7 p.m.
WOBULENZI, Uganda — When the Miss Uganda contestants arrived at this sprawling farm outside Kampala, they quickly realized their high-heels would not be useful. So they put on gumboots and strutted awkwardly as they took turns learning how to milk a cow.
The scene is just what the organizers of Uganda’s annual beauty pageant wanted: Beautiful women getting their hands dirty to promote farming.
This was not always the case.
BAMAKO, Mali — Many people in Mali are at high risk of catching Ebola because the toddler who brought the disease to the country was bleeding from her nose as she traveled on a bus from Guinea, the World Health Organization warned Friday.
The U. N. agency is treating the situation as an emergency because many people may have had “high-risk exposures” to the 2-year-old girl during her journey through several towns in Mali, including two hours in the capital, Bamako.
The toddler died in an isolation tent at a hospital in the western city of Kayes on Friday, according to a nurse.
She was an ordinary lab technician with an uncommonly dangerous assignment: drawing blood from Ebola-infected animals in a secret military laboratory. When she cut herself at work one day, she decided to keep quiet, fearing she’d be in trouble. Then the illness struck.
“By the time she turned to a doctor for help, it was too late,” one of her overseers, a former bioweapons scientist, said of the accident years afterward.
WASHINGTON — Two phone companies – TerraCom Inc. and YourTel America Inc. – unwittingly posted the Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses and other sensitive data of up to 300,000 clients to the Internet, an investigation found, and federal regulators said on Friday they plan to fine the firms.
As consumer data breaches go, the case – and its $10 million fine – is relatively small.
But the incident is alarming because of how it unfolded: The companies participate in a government program called Lifeline, which subsidizes phone service for poor consumers.
AUSTIN, Texas — A frigate carrying French colonists to the New World that sank in a storm off the Texas coast more than 300 years ago is being reassembled into a display that archeologists hope will let people walk over the hull and feel like they are on the ship’s deck.
The 1686 wreck of the 54-foot oak frigate La Belle – in an expedition led by famed Mississippi River explorer Rene-Robert Cavelier Sieur de La Salle – is blamed for dooming France’s further exploration of what would become Texas and the American Southwest.
But La Salle’s short-lived Fort St.
