Malaysia: multiple murders

If this story had happened in the USA, the world's media would have been all over it. As it is, it has achieved little profile. However, the Straits Times, a Singapore newspaper, has picked it up, then unfortunately applied a click-bait headline that edits out the most important part of the story.

Sports: banned substance catches three young women

Compulsory testing of sportsmen and women revealed the banned substance sibutramine. The substance was added to the banned list in January 2017. It is not a performance enhancing drug - it is primarily designed for weight-loss by suppressing the appetite. However, while it has been banned in sports only recently, it's long been recognised as a potentially harmful substance. It's been "withdrawn" in the USA since late 2010.
