Signs of the Times
TBAT reminds the community that it is a violation of the current Canadian Election Act to publish election results before the polls have closed:
Elections Canada officials have announced their intention to enforce this prohibition violations of it could result in (non-nominal) fines. Since many of the members of this community (including one of TBAT) are Canadian we ask that no election advertising, poll results not previously published or election results be posted before all Canadian polling stations are closed (0200 GMT.) Any posts that violate the Canadian Elections Act will be taken down immediately upon TBAT becoming aware of them.
As backstory is provided for the two “Hale twins”, the reader is left to wonder at the amount of information left out of the Cullen clan cover story. How old was Esme Hale when her niece and nephew were placed with her, and why are the twins still “foster children” after all these years while their “siblings” have all been adopted through the appropriate channels?

Things you can do
Pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson is putting the lives of people living with HIV at stake by refusing to participate in the Medicines Patent Pool, a mechanism designed to lower prices of HIV medicines and increase access to them for people in the developing world.
The Pool has been set up to increase access to more affordable versions of HIV drugs , including fixed-dose combinations that include multiple medicines in one pill, and to develop much-needed pediatric HIV drugs.
Johnson & Johnson, which holds patents on three key new HIV drugs desperately needed throughout the developing world, has so far refused to license these patents to the Medicines Patent Pool.
