ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (Reuters) -The crew was setting up a difficult shot during filming on the New Mexico set of "Rust", and the movie's cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins, wasn't quite satisfied. She turned to Lane Luper, a member of the camera crew, who suggested some adjustments that she found worked perfectly. "Her photography was beautiful, and every day, everybody on the camera team was proud to be there for her, because we were proud of what we were creating – what she was creating," he told the crowd, two days after Hutchins was killed in an accident when actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun on set.
Saskatchewan's plan to provide more than 1.3 million rapid antigen COVID-19 self-test kits to residents is getting underway. The plan to distribute the kits, announced by the provincial government on Oct. 15 and slated to begin this week, comes as the province continues to fight against a rising number of COVID cases, which are putting the hospital system under pressure. A limited number of the kits will be available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at the Chamber of Commerce office in Swift Curren
LONDON (Reuters) -Italy's government and UniCredit are preparing to call off negotiations over the sale of ailing bank Monte dei Paschi (MPS) after efforts to reach an agreement over a costly recapitalisation plan failed, two sources told Reuters. The decision would complicate efforts by Prime Minister Mario Draghi's government to meet a mid-2022 deadline agreed with European Union authorities to re-privatise the bank Rome rescued in 2017. Rome will now have to gain clearance from Brussels to pump more money into Monte dei Paschi without a plan in hand to cut the state's 64% stake.
MEXICO CITY (AP) — A San Jose, California woman born in India was one of two foreign tourists killed in the apparent crossfire of a drug-gang shootout in Mexico’s Caribbean coast resort of Tulum. Authorities in Quintana Roo, the state where Tulum, Playa del Carmen and Cancun are located, said one of the dead women was Anjali Ryot. An Instagram account under the same name showed a post of Ryot lounging and smiling on a seaside pier in Tulum two days ago. It listed her as a travel blogger from Him
P.E.I.'s mobile mental health response service is now active, the province's health minister announced Friday. Ernie Hudson said two of the planned three units are now operational, based in Summerside and Charlottetown, and they have responded to eight calls across the province since Monday. A third unit based in Kings County is to join them later. The province originally announced it was developing the service with federal funding in 2018. In January 2021, Health PEI said it was preparing to la
The legalization of cannabis in Canada just had its third anniversary, which means it's time for the federal government to review and possibly tweak the policy. In some areas, the reviews are positive. Legalization has resulted in the emergence of a multibillion-dollar industry, new jobs and tax revenue. There have also been fewer cannabis-related drug convictions among young people. But despite some positive signs, some health experts are concerned that the rapid growth of the industry combined

Texas-based ecologist Merlin Tuttle has been studying bats longer than video games have been around, and now, he's hoping that by sharing his decades of knowledge with a B.C. game creator, the duo can dispel some misconceptions he says people have about these nocturnal fliers by getting to know them better virtually. Tuttle, who has studied bats for over 60 years, has teamed up with AJ Dhalla, executive director of the non-profit society Thought Generation to create Find the Bats, an upcoming mo

CALGARY — A murder trial has heard a Calgary man who killed his girlfriend and is also accused of killing her young daughter told undercover police that the woman wanted "too much" from their relationship. Robert Leeming, 36, has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Jasmine Lovett and not guilty to second-degree murder in the death of 22-month-old Aliyah Sanderson. The mother and toddler were reported missing in April of 2019 after they didn't show up for a family dinner. Court
It's a Wednesday afternoon, but inside an unassuming Etobicoke dance hall, it feels like Saturday night. While the dance floor is full — physically distanced, with dancers wearing masks — all eyes are on Harry Mitchell. It's his 100th birthday and this is how he wanted to celebrate: surrounded by family and friends, gliding on the dance floor. "I'm governed to some extent by the condition of my knees, which have arthritis," says Mitchell, shrugging with a smile. "I hope I can dance as long as I

THREE RIVERS, Calif. (AP) — In the wake of California wildfires, upwards of 10,000 trees weakened by fires, drought, disease or age must be removed, work that will keep a nearby highway closed to visitors who seek the world’s two largest sequoia trees. The hazard trees could potentially fall onto people and cars on the section of State Route 180 known as Generals Highway, or they could create barriers for emergency and fire response, the Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks said Friday. The h

FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP) — The two women seeking the lieutenant governor's office in Virginia next month are fond of touting their unconventional political backgrounds. One thing is certain: Whichever one wins will be making history. Either candidate would be the first woman as well as the first woman of color to serve in a post that frequently serves as a launching pad to the governor’s mansion. Half of the past 10 lieutenant governors went on to become governor. The two will compete for votes on
