Bird Flu Is Infecting More Mammals. What Does That Mean for Us?

0


In her three decades of working with elephant seals, Dr. Marcela Uhart had never seen anything like the scene on the beaches of Argentina’s Valdés Peninsula last October.

It was peak breeding season; the beach should have been teeming with harems of fertile females and enormous males battling one another for dominance. Instead, it was “just carcass upon carcass upon carcass,” recalled Dr. Uhart, who directs the Latin American wildlife health program at the University of California, Davis.

H5N1, one of the many viruses that cause bird flu, had already killed at least 24,000 South American sea lions along the continent’s coasts in less than a year. Now it had come for elephant seals.

Pups of all ages, from newborns to the fully weaned, lay dead or dying at the high-tide line. Sick pups lay listless, foam oozing from their mouths and noses.

Dr. Uhart called it “an image from hell.”

In the weeks that followed, she and a colleague — protected head to toe with gloves, gowns and masks, and periodically dousing themselves with bleach — carefully documented the devastation. Team members stood atop the nearby cliffs, assessing the toll with drones.

What they found was staggering: The virus had killed an estimated 17,400 seal pups, more than 95 percent of the colony’s young animals.

The catastrophe was the latest in a bird flu epidemic that has whipped around the world since 2020, prompting authorities on multiple continents to kill poultry and other birds by the millions. In the United States alone, more than 90 million birds have been culled in a futile attempt to deter the virus.

There has been no stopping H5N1. Avian flu viruses tend to be picky about their hosts, typically sticking to one kind of wild bird. But this one has rapidly infiltrated an astonishingly wide array of birds and animals, from squirrels and skunks to bottlenose dolphins, polar bears and, most recently, dairy cows.

“In my flu career, we have not seen a virus that expands its host range quite like this,” said Troy Sutton, a virologist who studies avian and human influenza viruses at Penn State University.

The blow to sea mammals, and to dairy and poultry industries, is worrying enough. But a bigger concern, experts said, is what these developments portend: The virus is adapting to mammals, edging closer to spreading among people.

A human pandemic is by no means inevitable. So far at least, the changes in the virus do not signal that H5N1 that can cause a pandemic, Dr. Sutton said.

Still, he said, “We really don’t know how to interpret this or what it means.”


A highly pathogenic strain of H5N1 was identified in 1996 in domestic waterfowl in China. The next year, 18 people in Hong Kong became infected with the virus, and six died. The virus then went silent, but it resurfaced in Hong Kong in 2003. Since then, it has caused dozens of outbreaks in poultry and affected more than 800 people who were in close contact with the birds.

All the while, it continued to evolve.

The version of H5N1 currently racing across the world emerged in Europe in 2020 and spread quickly to Africa and Asia. It killed scores of farmed birds, but unlike its predecessors it also spread widely among wild birds and into many other animals.

Most infections of mammals were probably “dead-end” cases: a fox, perhaps, that ate an infected bird and died without passing on the virus. But a few larger outbreaks suggested that H5N1 was capable of more.

The first clue came in the summer of 2022, when the virus killed hundreds of seals in New England and Quebec. A few months later, it infiltrated a mink farm in Spain.

In the mink, at least, the most likely explanation was that H5N1 had adapted to spread among the animals. The scale of the outbreaks in sea mammals in South America underscored that probability.

“Even intuitively, I would think that mammal-to-mammal transmission is very likely,” said Malik Peiris, a virologist and expert in bird flu at the University of Hong Kong.

After it was first detected in South America, in birds in Colombia in October 2022, the virus swept down the Pacific coast to Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost tip of the continent, and up the Atlantic coast.

Along the way, it killed hundreds of thousands of seabirds, and tens of thousands of sea lions, in Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil. The sea lions behaved erratically, experiencing convulsions and paralysis; pregnant females miscarried their fetuses.

“What happened when the virus moved to South America we had never seen before,” Dr. Uhart said.

Exactly how and when the virus jumped to marine mammals is unclear, but the sea lions most likely came into close contact with infected birds or contaminated droppings. (Although fish make up the bulk of sea lions’ diet, they do sometimes eat birds.)

At some point, it’s likely the virus evolved to spread directly among the marine mammals: In Argentina, the sea lion deaths did not coincide with the mass mortality of wild birds.

“This could suggest that the infection source was not the infected birds,” said Dr. Pablo Plaza, a wildlife veterinarian at the National University of Comahue and National Scientific and Technical Research Council in Argentina.

It is not hard to imagine how the virus might disperse in these animals: Elephant seals and sea lions both breed in colonies, crowding together on beaches where they fight, mate and bark at one another. Elephant seals sneeze all day, dispersing large droplets of mucus each time they do.

It is difficult to prove exactly how and when the virus moved from one species to another. But genetic analysis supports the theory the marine mammals acquired their infections from one another, not birds. Samples of virus isolated from sea lions in Peru and Chile and from the elephant seals in Argentina all share about 15 mutations not seen in the birds; the same mutations were also present in a Chilean man who was infected last year.

There are numerous opportunities for H5N1 to jump from sea mammals into people. One sick male elephant seal that sat for a day and a half on a public beach in Argentina turned out to carry enormous amounts of virus. In Peru, scientists collected samples from sea lion carcasses that lay alongside families enjoying a beach day.

Scavenging animals, such as dogs, could also pick up the virus from an infected carcass and then spread it more broadly: “None of the wildlife exists in their little silos,” said Wendy Puryear, a virologist at Tufts University who studied the New England seal outbreaks.

In some South American countries, apart from a few carcasses that were buried, the rest have remained on the beaches, rotting and scavenged upon.

“How do you even scale up to remove 17,000 dead bodies out in the middle of nowhere, places where you can’t even bring down machinery, and humongous cliffs?” Dr. Uhart said.


Flu viruses are adept at picking up new mutations; when two types of flu virus infect the same animal, they can shuffle their genetic material and generate new versions.

It is unclear exactly how, and how much, the H5N1 virus has changed since it first emerged. One study last year showed that after the virus entered the United States, it quickly mixed with other flu viruses circulating here and morphed into various versions — some mild, others causing severe neurological symptoms.

“So now after 20 years of reassortment, you have a virus that actually does extraordinary well in a whole variety of avian and mammal species,” said Vincent Munster, a virologist at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who has studied the mutations needed for H5N1 to adapt to people.

Every new species that harbors the virus creates opportunities for H5N1 to continue to evolve, and to jump into people.

And the virus may stumble across mutations that no one has yet considered, allowing it to breach the species barrier. That is what happened in the 2009 swine flu outbreak.

That virus did not have the mutations thought to be needed to infect people easily. Instead, “it had these other mutations that no one knew about or thought about before then,” said Louise Moncla, an evolutionary biologist who studies avian influenza at the University of Pennsylvania.

Still, even if the virus jumps to people, “we may not see the level of mortality that we’re really concerned about,” said Seema Lakdawala, a virologist at Emory University. “Preexisting immunity to seasonal flu strains will provide some protection from severe disease.”


The U.S. is prepared for an influenza pandemic, with some stockpiled vaccines and antivirals, but its efforts at monitoring the virus may not pick it up quickly enough to deploy those tools.

It took several weeks before farmers, and then officials, knew that H5N1 was circulating in dairy cows.

The dairy farm outbreak has resulted in only one mild human infection, but farms are fertile ground for the virus to jump species — from cat to cow to pig and human, in any order.

Many scientists worry in particular about pigs, which are susceptible to both human and avian flu strains, providing the perfect mixing bowl for viruses to swap genes. Pigs are slaughtered when very young, and newer generations, with no prior exposure to flu, are particularly vulnerable to infections.

So far, H5N1 does not seem adept at infecting pigs, but that could change as it acquires new mutations.

“I never let my kids go to a state fair or animal farm, I’m one of those parents,” Dr. Lakdawala said. “And it’s mostly because I know that the number of interactions that we increase with animals, the more opportunities there are.”

Should H5N1 adapt to people, federal officials will need to work together and with their international counterparts. Nationalism, competition and bureaucracy can all slow down the exchange of information that is crucial in a developing outbreak.

In some ways, the current spread among dairy cows is an opportunity to practice the drill, said Rick Bright, the chief executive of Bright Global Health, a consulting company that focuses on improving responses to public health emergencies. But the U.S. Agriculture Department is requiring only voluntary testing of cows, and is not as timely and transparent with its findings as it should be, he said.

Dr. Rosemary Sifford, the department’s chief veterinarian said the staff there were working hard to share information as quickly as they can. “This is considered an emerging disease,” she said.

Government leaders are typically cautious, wanting to see more data. But “given the rapid speed at which this can spread and the devastating illness that it can cause if our leaders are hesitant and don’t pull the right triggers at the right time, we will be caught flat-footed once again,” Dr. Bright said.

“If we don’t give it the panic but we give it the respect and due diligence,” he added, alluding to the virus, “I believe we can manage it.”

Best Blenders of 2022 – CNET

0


Testing blenders isn’t just making smoothies and crushing ice. There are a lot of other recipes blenders work well for and these tests highlight how capable each model is when it comes to dry, large and coarse ingredients. 

Ice 

In a test of pure crushing power, we placed two cups of ice cubes into each blender. Counting the number of pulses it takes to get to fine, crushed ice gives a good indication of real-world chopping power. The three blenders we recommended above performed well.

Smoothie

A classic blender recipe, fruit smoothies were high on my list of recipes to test. This shouldn’t be a big stress test for any decent blender and so it really comes down to speed and consistency. We used two cups of orange juice and one cup of frozen strawberries to make the test smoothies.

While many of these tests yielded very similar results, a few worked faster than others. Not all blenders come with presets, but the ones that do almost always include a smoothie function. When possible, this is the mode we used. If there was no smoothie blender function, we followed the blender’s manual recommendation for smoothie making. This was usually around a minute on high.

Smoothie testing starts with whole, frozen strawberries and orange juice.

This is a relatively easy test and most blenders handled frozen ingredients well. Some were frothier and some slushier, but only the Black & Decker model left large chunks of frozen strawberry unblended. 

Nut flour and butter

Blenders aren’t all about beverages. There are plenty of other uses, including grinding dry ingredients. For our dry ingredient test, we put a cup of almond pieces (unroasted) in each blender and pulsed until those pieces were reduced to a fine flour. A bit of a challenge for some blenders, but most were able to do this in about 10 to 20 pulses, with the Hamilton Beach model yielding noticeably coarser results. 

Nut butter is a different story. Most blenders aren’t really designed for long running times and the level of processing needed to make a butter like almond butter or peanut butter. In fact, many recommend not running the blender for more than a few minutes at a time. 

20200616-112003

This nut flour is a bit coarse. 

Molly Price/CNET

Only one Vitamix model showed real signs of progress toward almond butter in our testing with the nut flour, and it plateaued before achieving a good consistency. Most models simply whirred the dry ingredients upward and into the hard-to-wash crevices of their lids. If you’re set on making nut butter, we recommend a model like the Oster with an included processing kit, or a separate food processor. 

Cheese

Did you know blenders can shred cheese? It’s true; some blenders can. We placed an 8-ounce block of cheese in each blender and pulsed until the entire block was shredded. This brought to light a few interesting design choices among some models. The Ninja, for example, lost the cheese round because multiple blender blade levels made it impossible to fit the cheese block in the blender. I had to cut it up into pieces. 

20200616-111351

Blenders can shred cheese and this NutriBullet did so in record time; just four pulses.

Molly Price/CNET

Both Vitamix models had some trouble with this particular test and bore holes in the cheese block without actually blending it, simultaneously melting what little cheese had been shredded as the machine heated up. Meanwhile, the NutriBullet, Ninja, instant Pot, Breville Super Q and Hurom Hexa handled grating the cheese block in less than five pulses.

Pancake batter

If you’ve seen our list of the best waffle makers, it should come as no surprise that pancake batter made an appearance in our blender testing. While I was happy to fire up the griddle and flip some cakes, mixing batter is an important test. It measures how easy or difficult it is for the blender to mix wet and dry ingredients.

Canucks demonstrate the height of their floor in Game 1 win over Predators

0


VANCOUVER – If the Vancouver Canucks are lucky, they will show everyone a soaring, vaulted ceiling at some point during the Stanley Cup playoffs. But in Game 1 on Sunday, they demonstrated the height of their floor.

That was impressive, too.

With almost half of their lineup – and nearly all of their core players – experiencing the emotional storm of real playoff hockey for the first time, in an atmosphere electrically charged by the first post-season game in Vancouver in nine years, the Canucks didn’t come close to their ceiling against the Nashville Predators.

But their floor, that baseline foundation built over the last 15 months by coach Rick Tocchet and his staff and fully embraced by players whose main experience in Vancouver had been losing, carried the Canucks through opening night the same way it did during their 50-win regular season.

Down 1-0 early and still trailing 2-1 in the third period, the Canucks simply stuck to their principles of speed and pressure and positional discipline and got goals 12 seconds apart from Quinn Hughes and Dakota Joshua and beat the Predators 4-2.

Game 2 is Tuesday. And the nine guys in the Vancouver lineup who had never experienced National Hockey League playoffs in front of fans, now have an idea what they are about. Their beliefs in how to handle them were powerfully reinforced on Sunday.

“First off, I’m happy for them to be able to experience this for the first time,” veteran defenceman Tyler Myers said. “But also the type of game it was, they got a real big taste of what playoff hockey is like. I thought everyone handled it well. The whole group handled that well. It’s good for them to feel it and experience it and now we’ve just got to keep going.

“It’s part of us maturing as a group. When things don’t go well, maybe before we would have tried to open things up and get out of our system and play shinny hockey. We’re working hard to play the same way no matter what goes on. I thought we displayed that tonight.”

The not going well part is far better than it used to be.

Understandably, the Canucks were a little overwound in the first period, when they managed only four shots on net and complicated their play with the puck at times. 

Except for taking three penalties in just over six minutes, the Canucks got better in the second period, then took the game away from the Predators in the third.

Captain Quinn Hughes tied it 2-2 at 8:59 with a wrist shot from the point that zipped past screening teammates Pius Suter and J.T. Miller before eluding Nashville goalie Juuse Saros.

And on the next shift, Elias Lindholm knocked Predator defenceman Jeremy Lauzon off the puck behind the Nashville net, allowing Canuck Conor Garland to fetch it and centre to unmarked Dakota Joshua, who slung a shot into the top corner over Saros’ right shoulder. It caused the loudest eruption in Rogers Arena since Vancouver went to the Stanley Cup Final in 2011.

Joshua’s breakthrough season included an empty-net goal at 18:32.

Joshua and Garland have been driving the Canucks’ third line all season and, with Lindholm installed by Tocchet in the middle of it when the centre returned from injury four games before the end of the regular season, the unit could be a massive X-factor in this series.

Lindholm’s wrist shot from distance was misplayed by Saros 45 seconds into the second period when the Canucks tied it 1-1, only to fall behind again at 10:46 when Teddy Blueger’s interference penalty preceded a power-play goal by Ryan O’Reilly.

“I think… we could be a really good line,” Lindholm said. “Obviously tonight, we had a solid game. There’s ways we can improve. But like you said, third line, you’re not going to get that top pair (of Nashville defencemen) too often. Hopefully we can use that.

“A lot of guys haven’t played in a long time in the playoffs. There’s always some nerves going into this game; you could tell a lot of guys were kind of nervous. But I think that’s a good thing, too. The first period, everyone is so fired up, there’s not a lot of plays being made out there. After half the game, we kind of settled. But I think this group has done a tremendous job throughout the whole year to stay with it. And obviously tonight we got rewarded.”

Especially, Sunday, they got rewarded.

There was a lot of discussion before the playoffs about how the Canucks’ youngish core, Hughes and goalie Thatcher Demko, forwards Elias Pettersson and Brock Boeser, would deal with the atmosphere and ferocity of the Stanley Cup tournament.

But even veterans like Miller, Myers and Lindholm felt emotions swell as they skated out before the anthems to U2’s ‘Where the Streets Have No Name’ as fans long-starved for playoff hockey screamed and twirled towels.

“Goosebumps,” Lindholm said.

“My head was on a different planet tonight,” Miller said. “That atmosphere was incredible. I mean, when we came out there, that was a special moment I’ll always remember. And I guarantee you they (playoff rookies) always will, too. We have better in us. But I just thought we looked pretty good for the most part.”

Canuck fans are accustomed to screaming at playoff time, but not always in a good way. Before Sunday, their team had lost seven of nine playoff home games — only nine games! — since the Canuck franchise peaked in 2011 by taking a 3-2 series lead against the Bruins before collapsing in the final.

Maybe this reborn Canucks team, with its strong foundation and strong beliefs binding together a lot of talent, will be different.

“We’ve talked countless times throughout the season exactly for moments like this,” Myers told reporters. “It’s what we’ve been building for — how to approach it physically, mentally, when things go bad and things go good. Guys did a good job tonight.

“When I stepped out on the ice before puck drop, I took a moment, looked at the fans. It was a pretty special moment. I know they’ve been waiting for this for a while.”

Jets’ Hellebuyck the difference in wild, series-opening win over Avalanche

0


WINNIPEG — A series-opening game that saw 13 goals scored was somehow marked by a single save at the most pivotal moment.

Sure, Connor Hellebuyck made nine of them while the Winnipeg Jets appeared blinded by the whiteout through the first 10 minutes of this thriller against the Colorado Avalanche, and that was crucial.

But when this year’s Vezina favourite flashed to the top of his crease and calmly grabbed a shot labeled for the top corner of his net in the 18th second of the 11th minute, he truly reinforced the message he was sending his team from puck drop to final buzzer — that he wouldn’t allow the nerves they were experiencing to get to him.

“I think that’s what makes him so valuable,” said Jets captain Adam Lowry, who scored two of Winnipeg’s goals in this 7-6 win at Canada Life Centre on Sunday.

Never mind that Hellebuyck was beaten by Valeri Nichushkin just four minutes earlier to surrender a 1-0 lead to the Avalanche.

He wasn’t to blame for that one, nor could he be faulted on the goals Miles Wood and Nathan MacKinnon scored 18 seconds apart just five minutes after he made this key first-period save that snatched away what appeared to be a sure one from Josh Manson.

In that one instant, Hellebuyck did for the Jets what Alexandar Georgiev was so far away from doing in this game for the Avalanche.

“He calmed us down,” said Josh Morrissey.

He stopped himself from calling Hellebuyck’s stop on Manson a game-saver but added, “If all of a sudden, it’s 2-0, it could’ve gone really south, and that gave us a spark before we ended up going shot for shot the rest of the period.”

The Jets scored the next two goals, got one more from Mark Scheifele after MacKinnon followed up the one from Wood, and they knew Hellebuyck had helped them dodge the bullet that could’ve killed them.

“It was a huge save,” Morrissey concluded.

How it was made — with such poise and grace under the pressure of the violent storm brewing all around his crease — set the tone for how this game would be decided.

Stylistically, and by the shot totals (46-23), it favoured the high-octane Avalanche, with Lowry, Kyle Connor, Morrissey and Jets coach Rick Bowness all repeating the same mantra: “That wasn’t how we drew it up.”

But one thing the Jets felt was predictable was that Hellebuyck would make the difference for them if he needed to, and none of them were surprised to see him do exactly that.

Had he been in Colorado’s net, the Avalanche would have likely achieved a galvanizing win and nullified the raucous atmosphere Jets fans clad in all-white provided.

Instead, Georgiev gave up four goals on the first 10 shots he faced. He looked like he was prepared to give up many more than the three others that slipped through him. And the Avalanche never appeared more confident in the game than when he was absent from their net — as they pushed to erase a two-goal deficit with an extra attacker over the last three minutes of play.

The Avs got one back. They even found a way to score six on Hellebuyck.

But they never rattled him.

“I think with him — and it’s something that I’ve learned and something I’ve tried to establish in my own game — his mentality’s incredible,” said Gabriel Vilardi. “He’s calm, he’s always the same. He could give up five goals in a period and you know he’s going to keep playing the same way, and it’s good to see. As a forward, as a player up front, you know that’s what you want to see from your goalie.”

It enabled the Jets to win despite being so far off the game plan that netted them the majority of their 52 wins in the regular season, including wins over the Avalanche in all three games prior to Sunday.

“Give the guys credit,” said Bowness, “We found a way to win a game that wasn’t played out the way it was supposed to be structured. Find a way, and we’ll take that every day.”

He called Hellebuyck’s influence on the outcome “huge,” and said none of the goals he gave up could be pinned on him.

“Some of them had seeing eyes, some of them were bouncing all over the place, some of them were just giveaways on our part,” Bowness said, adding the typically stingy Jets would focus on cleaning up their decisions with the puck in all three zones to avoid trading chances with the Avalanche in Tuesday’s Game 2.

We’re not sure what Avalanche coach Jared Bednar would want to change for that one, other than his goaltender.

Georgiev couldn’t come up with a single save that would have the impact of Hellebuyck’s on Manson. And in a game decided by a razor-thin margin, that proved as costly as what he allowed.

Despite Georgiev’s performance inspiring plenty of doubt, turning to Arvid Holm wasn’t a viable option for Bednar.

The third-string goaltender had never played a game at this level, and he had only played 16 this season — posting an .887 save percentage in 12 appearances with Colorado’s AHL affiliate and not doing much better in four games for the ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies. He was only dressed because Justus Annunen, who had a .928 save percentage in 14 starts with the Avalanche this season, was too sick to be in uniform.

When asked if Annunen would be available for Game 2, Bednar said, “I don’t know.”

“I don’t know if he’s going to be healthy enough to play or not,” he added. “He wasn’t healthy enough to play tonight and we’ll see what we see in the morning…”

If the Avalanche see more of what they saw from their crease on Tuesday night, they’ll be heading back to Denver down 2-0 in this series.

The Jets expect to see the same reliable version of Hellebuyck, and they also expect to play much better in front of him.

Why Does My Phone Say ‘SOS’?

0


Your phone can occasionally throw error messages at you that you can’t decipher. Sometimes, these errors don’t even arrive as alerts but are passively placed somewhere you can see them. Does your phone suddenly say “SOS” or “SOS only”? Are you unable to make calls and realize your phone isn’t showing the network bars anymore?

The SOS message appears at the top of your iPhone screen on the status bar. It’s typically present in place of your cellular network bars. It’s likely that you’ve seen SOS on your iPhone at some point, maybe when traveling, or during the recent network outage, if you’re on AT&T.

Not sure why your phone says SOS, or what it means? We’re here to help. Below, we explain what the SOS message on your phone means, and what you can do to fix it.

Why does my phone say SOS?

Let’s cut to the chase — if your phone says SOS, it means that you aren’t connected to a network, but can still make emergency calls to services like 911 in the US. This usually happens when you’re in an area with no network coverage or if your network carrier is experiencing an outage. However, it can also appear because of a temporary loss of network coverage or, sometimes, a software glitch.

The word SOS itself refers to an old distress signal used to call for help or rescue in an emergency; the letters don’t mean anything, they’re just easy to tap out in Morse code. On an iPhone, the message will say “SOS” or “SOS only,” but on Android phones, it may say “Emergency calls only,” in addition to seeing zero network bars, likely with a cross (x) next to the icon. The different messages will usually mean one of two things:

  • SOS/SOS only/Emergency calls only: No network connection, but emergency services are available.
  • No service/No network coverage: No network connection, emergency services unavailable via call.

Apple says that the SOS or SOS only message in your status bar means you can still make emergency calls despite not having a cellular connection, but the feature is only available in the US, Canada and Australia.

If your phone says SOS, it doesn’t mean you’ve accidentally triggered a distress call. It just means that you can access emergency services without being connected to your cellular network.

What to do if your phone says SOS

We have a complete guide on what to do if your phone is stuck on Emergency SOS mode. If possible, you should ensure that your cellular network isn’t experiencing an outage. If there is an ongoing outage, your best option is to wait it out.

If your network doesn’t have a reported outage, or the outage has been marked as resolved but your phone still says SOS, here are some steps Apple recommends you try on your iPhone:

  • Make sure your area has cellular network coverage. Check with other people around you to see if they have a working connection, especially on the same network.
  • Turn your cellular data off and on on your phone. You can do this in Settings > Cellular.
  • Restart your iPhone. Press and hold one of the volume buttons and the side button to summon the power menu to power it off. Press and hold the side button to power it on again. Follow the steps here for older iPhone models.
  • Update your carrier settings if there’s an update available. You can do this in Settings > General > About.
  • Turn your cellular line off and on. You can do this in Settings > Cellular > your phone number. If you’re not using an eSIM, remove and reinsert the SIM card in your phone.
  • Update your iPhone’s software, if an update is available. You can do this in Settings > General > Software Update. Note that this step will require a working Wi-Fi connection.
  • Reset the network settings on your iPhone. Warning: Don’t try this step until you’ve tried all of the above first, since doing this will reset all your Wi-Fi networks and passwords, VPN and cellular settings. You can do this in Settings > General > Transfer or Reset iPhone > Reset > Reset Network Settings. 
  • If you’re traveling internationally, toggle on Data Roaming. You can do this in Settings > Cellular > your phone number.

Three tips to help get service on your iPhone

Try restarting your iPhone, turning cellular data off and on and checking for any software updates.

Some of these steps should work for Android phones as well, although you may need to follow slightly different settings menu options depending upon the brand and model of your phone. 

Emergency SOS via Satellite on iPhone

Kevin Heinz/CNET

If your phone says no service and you need to contact emergency services, Apple has a feature called Emergency SOS via Satellite on iPhone, but it is limited to some newer models.

The SOS message on your phone’s status bar doesn’t refer to the Emergency SOS via Satellite feature, but the two are linked. Found on the iPhone 14 and 15, Emergency SOS via satellite will let you contact emergency services if you’re stuck in an area without cellular service.

If your phone says SOS, you can likely make a direct call to the emergency service number unless you’re in a remote location. In such cases, iPhone models with support for the Emergency SOS via Satellite feature will prompt you to use the feature when a call to emergency services fails. Read more about the feature from Apple.

You can check out our full guide on how to use your iPhone’s Emergency SOS via Satellite to contact 911. If you have persistent network coverage issues and your phone says SOS a lot, you might want to check out our guides on how to improve your iPhone’s or Android’s reception or switching phone carriers.

Elias Lindholm steps up for Canucks in playoff opener vs. Predators

0


Elias Lindholm may not have played his best hockey after he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks on Jan. 31, but he showed everyone why the team made a big move for the pending free agent on Sunday.

The former Calgary Flames centre scored the Canucks’ first goal and then caused a turnover that led to Dakota Joshua’s go-ahead goal in a come-from-behind 4-2 win over the Nashville Predators in Game 1 of their Western Conference quarterfinal.

“These are the games why you acquire Lindholm,” Canucks coach Rick Tocchet said. “He had a really good 200-foot game, really good.”

Lindholm got the first Vancouver home playoff crowd in nine years into a frenzy 47 seconds into the second period when he fired a shot from the top of the circle past Predators goalie Juuse Saros to tie it at 1-1.

Then, in the third period, mere seconds after the Canucks had tied it at 2-2, Lindholm raced in after the faceoff and checked Nahsville’s Jeremy Lauzon into the end boards as he was trying to retrieve the puck. That allowed Conor Garland to pick it up, and he fed it to Dakota Joshua for the winner — giving the Canucks two goals in 12 seconds.

Lindholm had just six goals and six assists in 26 games with the Canucks after the trade, with his role changing as Vancouver tried to find the most effective way to use him.

The Canucks professed their confidence in Lindholm, 29, as the season came to an end, and he delivered in a big way while leading the third line with Joshua and Conor Garland.

“He’s a great player so none of us really doubted the offence would come from him,” said Joshua, who finished with two goals and an assist.

“It was a great goal to get us going. And then he showed some of his hockey IQ getting in on the forecheck and creating that goal. He just makes you feel a lot more confident in your own game knowing that if you make a mistake, he’s right there to back you up.”
