Possible "signal" detected from missing airliner

A Royal Australian Air Force E-7A Wedgetail takes off from Perth Airport to take part in search operations for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in Perth, Australia, Saturday, April 5, 2014.

China's Xinhua News Agency says a Chinese ship searching for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has detected a 'pulse' signal.

The report says a black box detector deployed by the vessel picked up a signal at 37.5Hz per second.

 The report said it was not determined whether the signal was related to the missing jet.

A black box detector deployed by the vessel, Haixun 01, picked up a signal at 37.5Hz per second at around 25 degrees south latitude and 101 degrees east longitude, Xinhua said.

The Australian government agency coordinating the search would not immediately comment on the report.

  • Recycling deposit error headache for Montreal dad

    Just in time for school to start up again, Five Alive juice boxes are on sale at Loblaws and Maxis across town. If you've bought any of these products a CJAD listener warns: check your receipts, you may have paid an unjustified fee.

    A listener emailed us at yourstory@cjad.com to share his experience.

    Over the past few weeks, local dad Alfonso bought his kids packages of juice boxes from 2 different Maxis and a Loblaws in Montreal.

    The grocery stores charged him an extra 5 cents recycling deposit for each juice box - the trouble is, customers can't return juice boxes to reclaim their deposit like with cans or bottles.

    Gomez, a representative from the Office de la protection du consommateur, says Carlos should report the incident to them.

    "We can not all the time do single cases, but if you call us we keep the information," said Gomez. "If many contact us about the issue then we may do an investigation. We have to pick our fights."

    The Loblaws corporation says it is aware of the situation and claims it was simply an error.

    A Maxi employee says the grocer offered to refund the extra fees if customers bring in their receipts, but Loblaws still won't accept juice boxes in return for past charged deposits.
