But the six-foot-five Swede was beaten again at , unable to find Bouchard's wrist shot from the point through five bodies.

The Senators start a five-game road trip Thursday, with two games in Winnipeg followed by three in Toronto. Edmonton wraps up its four-game road trip Thursday in Montreal. This report by The Canadian Press was first published Feb.
That worry is compounded by the confirmation of the deadly UK variant — which devastated the Roberta Place long-term care home in Barrie and is now active in two other Simcoe County outbreaks — is now in the community. Charles Gardner said Tuesday during a weekly call with reporters. The current situation, Gardner noted, is precarious and leaves the area vulnerable to a surge of cases that would require another stringent lockdown. He believes a measure of control is lost without the stay-at-home order.
If there is indication of more of those cases testing positive for a variant, that would be an indication of its spread to another community. The simple message to encourage people to stay at home was considered effective in reducing transmissions. Despite confirmation of the very transmissible UK variant in this area, there has been a downward trend in the number of COVID cases in Simcoe-Muskoka during the past month.
But many other environments remain vulnerable to outbreaks, including hospitals, even though many of those employees have been immunized. Bruineman, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, barrietoday. Trump, who was watching the proceedings in Washington from his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, was furious at what he saw, according to a person familiar with his thinking.
Senators, too, criticized what they described as an unfocused and rambling performance as Trump's team and Democratic House managers began to lay out their cases in front of the Senate jury. While it remains unlikely that more than a handful of Republicans will join Democrats in convicting the former president at the end of the trial, the proceedings were a chance for Trump to try to repair some of the damage to his legacy incurred over the storming of the Capitol by a mob of his supporters.
Trump has been charged with inciting the Jan. But Trump's team — which was announced little more than a week ago — appeared unprepared as they attempted a good cop, bad cop routine that veered from flattery to legalese, and stood in dramatic contrast to Democrats' focused emotional appeals. Trump — ever the showman — was impressed with the Democrats, who opened Tuesday's session with powerful video that compiled scenes of the deadly attack on Congress.
And he complained that his team — especially lead lawyer Bruce Castor — came off badly on television and looked weak in comparison, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations. The anger was echoed by Trump allies, who blasted the lawyers both publicly and privately and with repeated profanities. I have no idea what he's doing. Peter Navarro, a former Trump trade adviser, had already been urging the former president to ditch his legal team and hire Republican Rep.
This is a political trial. GOP Sen. Republican Sen. Trump's team did not respond to requests for comment on the day's events or questions about whether they are planning any shakeups to the legal team. Trump parted ways with his original impeachment team just over a week before the Senate trial was set to begin, in part because Trump wanted them to use a defence that relied on unfounded allegations of election fraud, and the lawyers were not willing to do so.
In recent weeks, ultra-Orthodox Jews have defied coronavirus restrictions by holding big funerals for beloved rabbis who died of COVID, celebrating large weddings, and continuing to send their children to schools. The gatherings have led to clashes with police and an unprecedented wave of public anger toward the religious community.
Moskowits, like many other ultra-Orthodox faithful, says Israeli society doesn't understand their way of life and has turned his community into a scapegoat. But it has wielded outsize influence, using its kingmaker status in parliament to secure benefits and generous government subsidies. Ultra-Orthodox men are exempt from compulsory military service and often collect welfare payments while continuing to study full time in seminaries throughout adulthood. Their schools enjoy broad autonomy and focus almost entirely on religion while shunning basic subjects like math and science.
These privileges have generated disdain from the general public — resentment that has boiled over into outright hostility during the coronavirus crisis. Among Israelis over 65, the ultra-Orthodox mortality rate was three times that of the general population, he added. Health Ministry data show vaccination rates in ultra-Orthodox areas lag far behind the national average.
Ultra-Orthodox noncompliance, Malach said, stemmed in part from members not believing that they "need to obey the rules of the state, especially regarding questions of religious behaviour. Many consider secular Israelis a recent aberration from centuries of unaltered Jewish tradition. We will listen to them today as well. The year-old Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, one of the most influential spiritual leaders, has insisted schools remain open throughout the crisis.
On a recent day, scores of ultra-Orthodox girls cascaded from a grade school in the Romema neighbourhood that was operating in violation of the law. Few wore masks or maintained distance from others. Some notices urged people not to get vaccinated, even using Holocaust imagery to scare people. The pandemic is already behind us!
Ultra-Orthodox leaders say such views are held by a radical minority. Most people respect safety rules, they say, and the virus is spreading because communities are poor and people live in small apartments with large families. Moskowits, a year-old father of two, said some families have up to 10 children and just one bathroom. From 14, boys are sent to boarding schools and spend only the sabbath at home.
He wears the black velvet skullcap, pressed white shirt and black slacks typical of ultra-Orthodox men -- but no mask, despite the government requiring them in public. A real estate developer, he punctuates his workday with prayers at a neighbourhood synagogue, and tries once a week to pray at Jerusalem's Western Wall, the holiest place where Jews can worship.
Once a day, he performs ablutions at a mikvah, a Jewish ritual bath, and he regularly studies religious texts with a partner. The religious community is growing rapidly even though economists have long warned that the system is unsustainable. This view is hardly universal. Cars with megaphones drive through religious neighbourhoods announcing deaths and funeral details. Pashkevils notify communities when a prominent rabbi dies.
But the ultra-Orthodox claim they are being unfairly singled out, noting that demonstrations against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu -- protected under free speech laws -- have been permitted to continue during the pandemic. He will go to the funeral anyway. More than half of Canadians trust social media and blogs over doctors and nutritionists, according to a recent study.
Despite growing concerns about online misinformation, the findings — which are not peer-reviewed — will be unsurprising to anyone who has waded through the sea of online food and nutrition advice. For some researchers, however, they also point to an urge to find personalized information that fits our beliefs, even if it might not be true. Doctors and friends or family members follow — about 40 per cent and 28 per cent, respectively — while about a quarter of Canadians trust other experts, such as naturopaths or personal trainers.
The web offers a vast repository of information, including emotion-rich personal testimonies. Not only that. In her research — Sillence studies why people trust the web over doctors for medical advice — she found that the process of online research itself can make people trust their findings more. Yet that research already leans towards a particular outcome the moment we start typing into the search bar.
Then, from the moment our browser fills with pages to consult, people start relying on their personal guidelines to vet websites or social media posts. Familiarity with the website and the person or information behind it are consistently top-of-mind for many, she said, but other indicators are at play as well. Does the page have the right words? All that kind of stuff. People can find solace or healing in connecting with others who share similar concerns or experiences.
Often, those concerns reflect long-standing biases in mainstream medical or nutritional advice. For instance, women have regularly been excluded from medical studies; their medical concerns — like those of many minorities — have historically been dismissed by professionals.
Both contribute to eroding trust in mainstream sources. Still, taking web sources with a grain of salt is wise when it comes to nutrition, said Kyla Detta, a nutrition coach living in Ireland but originally from Canada. Often, clients will come to see her swearing by a diet they found online that is not healthy or sustainable for them.
Adhering to it is often brutal on their physical and mental health, she said, undermining their overall well-being. More important, she said, is building a long-term, healthy relationship with food that includes a diverse and enjoyable diet. The Canadian Press. The wind chill in some parts of British Columbia could make outdoor temperatures feel as low as —45 C on Wednesday as a mass of Arctic air grips the the province, according to Environment Canada.
Extreme cold warnings are in effect for most of central and northern B. Even the southern parts of the province can expect an Arctic blast, bringing temperatures in the Interior C below the seasonal average, and C below average in coastal areas.
Environment Canada is also predicting flurries across the South Coast beginning Wednesday. Concern for homeless people The freezing temperatures mean some shelters are having to balance disease prevention measures with concerns about keeping unhoused people warm. However, he noted that most of the shelter's clients have already received their first dose of COVID vaccine, which should cut down on transmission.
In Vancouver, staff from the Union Gospel Mission have been out on the streets distributing blankets and other supplies to keep people warm. After a surge in demand during the fall that saw people turned away from the charity's shelter, staff have also converted space in a classroom into shelter space, bringing the capacity to 92 beds, according to spokesperson Jeremy Hunka. James Harry, a Haisla outreach worker on the city's Downtown Eastside, said he worries about people who prefer to stay overnight on the street than in a shelter.
Harry said it is survival mode for those on the streets during this weather, and a big fear for him is that sometimes when people are using drugs, they are not cognizant of the potentially deadly cold. Further north, the extreme cold has already led to the death of one woman who succumbed to exposure on her way home from a neighbour's house in Dawson Creek. In Fort St. John, outreach workers have put out a call for new tuques, gloves and socks to be donated for those sleeping outside, as used clothing cannot be accepted because of COVID concerns.

In the contentious meeting, three Republicans spoke with Shirkey at a restaurant a day before the Hillsdale County GOP's executive board censured him for a number of reasons, including backing a ban on the open carry of guns into the Statehouse and allegedly not doing enough to fight Democratic Gov.
Shirkey countered that Republicans had successfully sued the governor and taken other steps such as blocking her nominees. Did everything we could constitutionally do. That's been a hoax from day one. That was all prearranged. It was ridiculous. It was all staged," claiming that then-U. They wanted to have a mess. Five people died, including a police officer.

He said he and then-House Speaker Lee Chatfield told Trump that state law did not give the Legislature a say in awarding Michigan's 16 electoral votes.
Shirkey has faced criticism from Democrats for meeting with militia leaders last May, weeks after armed protesters had entered the Capitol to object to a coronavirus lockdown — some blocked by police while demanding entry onto the House floor, others shouting down from the Senate gallery.

Emergency crews were called to the scene at about p. David Hopkinson. When officers arrived at the building, they found a man with gunshot wounds on one of the levels of the parking garage, Hopkinson said. The victim was unconscious. Toronto paramedics said the man had life-threatening injuries, and despite attempts to save his life, he died at the scene.
In a news release issued Wednesday afternoon, police identified the man as year-old Harry Lainas of Toronto. Toronto police's homicide squad has taken over the investigation.

REGINA — A judge has ruled that the University of Regina must provide information to one of its professors about who is funding research into the oil and gas industry.
Emily Eaton, who teaches in the university's geography and environmental studies department, is researching the influence of the fossil fuel industry on education in Saskatchewan. Under freedom-of-information legislation, she requested that the school disclose who is funding research related to oil and gas, coal, carbon capture and climate change, as well as which departments receive the money.
Eaton was denied her request and turned to the courts. The university used a "discretionary class exemption" in the province's freedom-of-information laws that allowed it refuse to provide details of the academic research. But McCreary ruled that the types of records Eaton requested did not fall within the exemption. She said she agrees with the university that "there may be harms in disclosing funding identity information," but that it did not provide enough evidence that it would be the case in this situation.
In a statement late Tuesday, the University of Regina said the decision provides clarity on the application of the freedom-of-information exemption it used in the case, "which had not previously been considered by the court. Eaton sought to challenge the application of this particular exemption provision," the emailed statement said.
The university noted that it was always willing to provide some of the information to Eaton and she is also free to directly request that each of her colleagues provide it. Often, university researchers are conducting work that is unique, sensitive, controversial, confidential and potentially proprietary in nature," the statement said.
The Canadian Press Note to readers: This is a corrected story. Previous version said University of Saskatchewan in para Five of the seven High Court judges dismissed a constitutional challenge by convicted terrorist Abdul Benbrika who remains in a Victoria state prison despite his year sentence expiring in November last year.
The year-old Muslim cleric is the first extremist to be incarcerated by a so-called preventative detention order based on an anti-terror law created in Australia introduced the law as the number of extremists held in prisons on terror-related convictions was increasing and public concerns grew that some of the most-feared radicals were nearing the end of their sentences.
Benbrika was convicted in of being the Melbourne leader and member of a terrorist cell. He was one of 12 men in Melbourne and Sydney convicted of terror-related offences involving planning of attacks against various targets including the then-prime minister and a Melbourne Australian Rules Football match. No attack took place. Under the law, prisoners convicted of terror offences can be held for a further three years beyond their sentences if a judge grants a federal government application for a detention order.
Such an order can be renewed after three years if the prisoner is considered to continue to pose a public threat. The majority of judges ruled that protecting the community from a terror crime amounted to exceptional circumstances. Algeria-born Benbrika faces deportation on his release from prison. In November last year, he became the first person to be stripped of Australian citizenship while still in Australia.
The first person to be stripped of Australian citizenship under an anti-terror law created in was Khaled Sharrouf in Sharrouf gained international notoriety in when he posted online a photograph of his 7-year-old son clutching the severed head of a Syrian soldier.

The House impeachment managers put together a timeline showing where the rioters were at the Capitol, Trump's messages to the mob, and pleas lawmakers made to Trump in an attempt to get his supporters to leave the complex. The managers are trying to prove that Trump incited an insurrection, and they are making "a strong case," Murkowski said.

It's one of many harrowing new videos revealed during Wednesday's impeachment hearings. Two men and a woman had lost track of days as they survived on a diet of coconuts, conchs and rats for more than a month after they were cast away on a deserted island between Florida and Cuba. US Coast Guard officials said the trio from Cuba told them their boat had capsized in rough waters and they were able to swim to Anguilla Cay, where they spent 33 days before they were spotted and rescued.
The uninhabited island of rocky ground and palm trees and shrubs is part of an atoll of the Bahamas that is much closer to Cuba and monitored by the U. Coast Guard for strandings of refugees trying to reach US soil. Riley Beecher, a Coast Guard pilot, said that while on a routine mission they saw on Monday what looked like flags waving in the usually brown and light green topography.
Beecher said. Chicago teachers are going back to the classroom. COVID updates.

Mitt Romney R-Utah told reporters on Wednesday evening that when House impeachment managers showed previously unreleased law enforcement footage of the Capitol riot during the day's proceedings, he learned just how close he had been to the mob.
In the video, Romney is shown running into Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman, who motions for him to turn around, as he was headed directly toward the rioters. Immediately after the attack, video was released showing Goodman diverting the mob away from the Senate chambers, and Romney told reporters he did not know that the same officer had helped him that day. Newly released security video shows a sprinting Ofc.

The Duke of Sussex hopes his Invictus Games and the NHS can find "strength, compassion, and understanding" from shared experiences as a new project to support health workers was launched.
Harry is patron of the Invictus Games Foundation which has collaborated with the NHS to provide guidance on supporting the physical, mental, and social wellbeing of medical workers and other staff during and after the pandemic. The advice is in the form of six podcasts on a variety of themes designed to help inspire and support NHS workers, and are based on lessons learned by the Invictus community during its recovery.
The foundation oversees the delivery of the Invictus Games, founded by Harry, for injured, sick and wounded veterans and serving military. Harry said: "For a year now, NHS workers have been engaged in a new kind of battle. The first podcast will be released on Thursday and features Glenn Haughton, the Armed Forces mental health champion, talking about reconnecting with the family. Prerana Issar, chief people officer for NHS England and NHS Improvement, said: "This partnership offers practical support to further complement the already extensive help available for our hard-working staff from the mental health hotline exclusively for NHS workers, through to access to health and wellbeing apps which thousands of staff have already benefited from.

Despite that fact, the rural Manitoba teacher can expect a vaccine around the same time other Manitobans in the to age range can, regardless of whether they work from home or elsewhere. The public will be cohorted by age, in year-increments, for vaccines. When the initial plan was unveiled two weeks ago, public health officials said they would hold stakeholder meetings and review the epidemiological situation and risks before making a decision.

The strategy is in line with recommendations put out by the national advisory committee on immunization, which suggest essential workers be part of the second rollout stage.

OTTAWA — Senators voted Wednesday to expand Canada's assisted dying regime to allow individuals who fear losing mental capacity to make advance requests for medical help to end their lives.
The amendment to Bill C-7 was approved by a vote of , with eight abstentions. Pamela Wallin, a member of the Canadian Senators Group who proposed the amendment, argued that the law currently traps Canadians in "a perverse diagnosis lottery. The majority of Canadians have come to the same conclusion. Bill C-7 would expand assisted dying to people whose natural death is not reasonably foreseeable. It would establish more relaxed eligibility rules for those who are near death, including a limited form of advance request, and more stringent rules for those who are not.
For those near death who have consented to and been approved for an assisted death, it would waive the requirement that they be able to give final consent immediately before the procedure is performed. That measure is intended to deal with situations in which a person loses mental capacity after being approved for an assisted death.
Wallin's amendment would extend that waiver of final consent to people who are not near death. Even many of the senators who opposed Wallin's amendment were sympathetic to her objective. Marc Gold, the government's representative in the Senate, choked up as he expressed his admiration for Wallin's "passionate and reasoned and reasonable" advocacy for advanced requests.
But he argued that the Senate has not studied the issue because it wasn't included in the bill. During committee hearings, he said senators heard repeatedly that even minor changes to the assisted dying regime shouldn't be rushed and must be considered thoroughly.
However, Sen. Frances Lankin, a member of the Independent Senators Group, countered that every province and territory already has regulations in place to allow people to make advance directives about end-of-life treatment, including refusing heroic efforts to keep them alive on feeding tubes, for instance. The current law, Lankin said, allows her to say in advance, "I don't want any intervention under these conditions, I want to die.
Jim Munson, a member of the Progressive Senate Group, said he had intended to abstain on Wallin's amendment. But after listening to the debate, which included senators recounting their harrowing experiences with family members with dementia who died in agony, he concluded: "I think sometimes the Senate has to take the initiative and has to force the debate.
Plett argued that his amendment would help alleviate the concern of people with disabilities who've complained about feeling pressured to receive an assisted death. But other senators argued that doctors and nurses have a professional obligation to discuss all available options with their patients.
Plett's amendment was defeated by a vote of , with one abstention. Senators similarly overwhelmingly rejected amendments proposed by Conservative Sen. Denise Batters, which would have restored the requirements of a day waiting period and two witnesses for people who are near death.
