The Canadian Press OTTAWA — A much-anticipated final report from the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls calls on police services to do a better job dealing with human trafficking cases.The report is to be released in Gatineau, Que. today in what’s expected to be a highly emotional ceremony.The findings of the federally funded inquiry focus on legal issues including policing.Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett says the final document is not the end of the journey.Rather, she says, the federal government will now have to focus on eliminating racism and sexism in policing and other institutions, as well as accelerating progress on child-welfare reforms.In the report, chief commissioner Marion Buller says survivors provided “important truths” during months of testimony, and Indigenous women and girls have been targeted for violence in what was nothing short of a genocide. read more

Sprint: 50% off (with lease) Related Links Best Buy: Save up to $700 with trade-in and activation Of course, if you’re all about the latest and greatest, you still don’t have to pay full price. Let’s take a look at some of the best deals currently available for the Galaxy Note 10. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. News • Grab an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 9 for $719 Aug 31 • Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile vs Sprint: Choose the best 5G carrier If you’ve got an aging Apple, Google or Samsung phone you’re looking to upgrade, check out Best Buy’s trade-in deal. The Google Pixel 2 and iPhone 7, for example, each have an estimated trade-in value of $300, and Best Buy is offering an extra $100 off for activation with a carrier. That would knock (in the form of bill credits) a full $400 off the total cost of any of the new Notes. However, you must visit a Best Buy store if you’re doing a trade-in.Best Buy also promises a Samsung credit of “up to $150,” though it’s not immediately clear what determines the actual amount. (Samsung proper is offering a $100 store credit when you preorder directly from the company.) You’ll also be eligible for a free six-month Spotify Premium subscription, a $60 value.

It requires a 30-month lease (that’s 2.5 years, folks), basically with a discount applied to cover the cost of the second phone. You do get a $150 Visa Reward Card when you order online.Verizon has an almost identical BOGO deal, though you can spread the payments out across 24 or 36 months, your choice. T-Mobile’s offer is arguably the weakest of the bunch: Up to $300 off, but only with an eligible trade-in. Remember that all these options are just for the hardware. You’ll also be paying for service, so factor that into your total monthly cost as well.For all the other deals currently available, check out our story on how to preorder the Galaxy Note 10. The Cheapskate Samsung Event And up to $150 in “Samsung cash” Tags Currently the cheapest way to get a new Note, Sprint’s 18-month lease deal nets you the Note 10 for $19.79 per month or the Note 10 Plus for $26.04 per month. Sprint also promises “up to $150 in Samsung cash” when you preorder, but it’s not clear what dictates the exact amount.If you’re tempted by this offer, consider taking advantage of it via Best Buy (see above). You’ll get the same 50% off and Samsung credit, along with an extra $100 for activation, a six-month Spotify subscription and as much as $700 for a trade-in. See at Sprint Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross. Here’s how to clean it Angela Lang/CNET The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus have arrived, bringing exactly the kind of jaw-dropping price tags you’d expect from big-screen flagship phones: $949 and $1,099, respectively. Want a 5G-capable model (currently available only for the Plus on Verizon)? Be prepared to shell out $1,299. Here’s everything you need to know about preordering a Galaxy Note 10.However, before you spend that kind of money, consider a previous-generation model.

Credit: Israel Antiquities Authority In the same cave, the hikers also found an etching of a cross, a symbol that has been used by Christians to express their faith for thousands of years. How the two etchings came to exist in such close proximity is a mystery, though Ganor notes they likely were made hundreds of years apart by people hiding in the caves for very different reasons. Near both of the etchings was yet another etching—one depicting a key, which has not been studied well enough to reveal its possible identity or meaning. Ganor called the discovery an exciting find and hinted that there may be other etchings involved, as well—a team has been assembled to study the caves, though the actual site is being kept hidden to prevent amateur enthusiasts from causing damage.

Also, interestingly, the menorah etching featured seven branches (three on either side and one in the middle for lighting) rather than the nine commonly used today. This, Ganor pointed out, suggests that the menorah etching was likely created during the time of the Second Temple, when candelabra were used to light the temple, from approximately 516 BCE until 70 CE, when it was destroyed. In modern times, followers of the Jewish faith light the eight small candles on either side of a menorah from the candle in the middle as part of a Hanukkah ceremony to commemorate the restoration of the Temple in Jerusalem.
