By Victor Schwartzman, with Mike Hammer
My throat was dry and the streets were wet. Toronto hadnt changed and neither had I: we were both nice on the outside but there was something nasty underneath.
Mike Hammers the name, solving mysteries is no game. This time it was no mystery at all but Ill give you the puzzler anyway. See if you can guess who the suspect is before the big reveal.
Pan Am Games App Deemed Failure by Advocates for People With Disabilities(PWDs)

The eSSENTIAL Accessibility assistive technology app gives those who have trouble typing, moving a mouse, or reading a screen due to a variety of conditions
– such as stroke, paralysis or arthritis – the tools they need to navigate the Web. The app is free to the end-user and simple to use.
Organizations that feature the app on their websites are committed to making it easier for people with disabilities to access information online. For more info, please visit http://www.essentialaccessibility.com
