In a hurry this morning? We’ve got a cheat sheet to help you catch up on the news before you get to work.
Here are the 5 things stories you need to know this Tuesday morning: Marco Muzzo is expected to be sentenced today; a hijacked EgyptAir flight lands in Cyprus; a U.S. court unseals a trove of sensitive emails between high-ranking NHL executives discussing concussions; the privacy and security battle between the FBI and Apple is over; and a University of Alberta study is looking to change how diabetic patients receive insulin.
1. Drunk driving sentence: Marco Muzzo will learn his sentence today after pleading guilty to an impaired driving crash that killed nine-year-old Daniel Neville-Lake, his five-year-old brother Harrison, their two-year-old sister Milly and their 65-year-old grandfather.
2. EgyptAir hijacking: An EgyptAir flight was hijacked en route to Cairo on Tuesday morning, landing in Cyprus. However, Cyprus' president says the hijacking "was not something that has to do with terrorism."
3. NHL emails: A U.S. federal court in Minneapolis has unsealed a trove of sensitive emails sent between high-ranking NHL executives, including one email exchange in which deputy commissioner Bill Daly links fighting in hockey to concussions, depression and "personal tragedies."
4. Battle over: The U.S. government unexpectedly ended a legal battle against Apple on Monday, after the FBI was able to access the data on a locked iPhone. Despite an end to the legal dispute, the outcome is raising questions about personal privacy moving forward.
5. Insulin implants: A pilot study at the University of Alberta is using small implants filled with stem cells to regulate insulin in diabetic patients that, if effective, could replace conventional insulin injections.
