Apple No Longer Allows Apps That Track US Drone Strikes Abroad

I'm not sure I understand exactly why a company would want to make an app that tracks exactly where the United States uses its drones during military action overseas. A company was denied approval for just such an app called Drones+ recently. Apple cited objectionable content is the reason for denying approval.

The app appears to overlay any location where the totality occurred during an attack using a US drone. It's unclear whether the app is calling attention to the fatalities presumed to be of non-combatants are not.

Cold Lake heats up as oil boom beckons

Source: Financial Post

Osum Oil Sands Corp. CEO Steve Spence says he used to call Cold Lake the “unknown story in the oil sands”. Not any more. While the city of Fort McMurray further north has garnered all the attention for its rapid growth, Cold Lake city has been an oil boomtown in its own right with production in its vicinity ramping up to half a million barrels per day. “It is actually the most understood region [in terms of geology],” Mr. Spence said, although the Athabasca basin in Fort McMurray ...
