The journey from stage to screen, so often a perilous one, has been particularly bumpy for “Dear Evan Hansen.” The Broadway show, starring Ben Platt as a lonely, anxiety-racked teenager who turns into a social media sensation after exaggerating his friendship with another, more hostile loner who kills himself, was an overwhelming hit. It won six Tony Awards in 2017, including best new musical and acting honors for Platt's star-making performance. Here, from book writer Steven Levenson and songwr

NEW YORK (Reuters) -A former Wall Street quantitative analyst was charged on Thursday with insider trading for making nearly 2,900 trades after learning his employer would soon make the same trades for clients, known as front-running. The U.S. Department of Justice said Sergei Polevikov, 48, of Port Washington, New York, generated more than $8.5 million of illegal profit from trades he conducted from January 2014 to October 2019 through his wife's brokerage account. Polevikov worked for OppenheimerFunds during the alleged front-running, according to a public records search.

The U.S. special envoy to Haiti resigned in protest in a letter that blasted the Biden administration for deporting hundreds of migrants back to the crisis-engulfed Caribbean nation from a camp on the U.S.-Mexican border in recent days. Daniel Foote, a career diplomat named to his post in July, said the "collapsed state" was unable to support the infusion of returning migrants. "I will not be associated with the United States' inhumane, counterproductive decision to deport thousands of Haitian refugees and illegal immigrants," Foote said in a letter addressed to Secretary of State Antony Blinken that circulated publicly on Thursday.

BERLIN (AP) — After three-and-a-half weeks on a hunger strike, Henning Jeschke is frail and gaunt, but determined to go on, still hoping to pressure the three candidates for chancellor of Germany into meeting him for a debate about the climate crisis ahead of Sunday’s general election. For the first time in Germany, climate change is perhaps the most dominant issue in an election campaign, especially for young voters. It's at the center of televised debates among candidates, and five of the six
A social media challenge encouraging students to trash school bathrooms has Calgary school boards trying to flush the problem before it overflows. As part of a TikTok challenge called "Devious Licks," students record themselves vandalizing and stealing items from school washrooms and post it online. "To be blunt, we are tired of repeatedly closing washrooms each and every day," the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) wrote in a statement to parents recently. "It costs us time and money, and inconve
Is the delta variant of the coronavirus worse for kids? Experts say there's no strong evidence that it makes children and teens sicker than earlier versions of the virus, although delta has led to a surge in infections among kids because it's more contagious. Delta's ability to spread more easily makes it more of a risk to children and underscores the need for masks in schools and vaccinations for those who are old enough, said Dr. Juan Dumois, a pediatric infectious disease physician at Johns H
A former World Bank official who prepared reports at the center of a data-rigging scandal that aided China defended IMF chief Kristalina Georgieva on Thursday as the Economist magazine called for her to resign over her alleged role in the controversy. Shanta Devarajan, who helped oversee the World Bank's "Doing Business" report in 2017, said that an outside investigation report alleging that Georgieva, during her time as World Bank CEO, applied "undue pressure" on staff to boost China's ratings was "beyond credulity."

The top court ruled this morning that the Manitoba Court of Appeal has jurisdiction to reconsider a publication ban on an affidavit in the case of a Manitoba man who spent 23 years in prison for first-degree murder before the decision was overturned. In an 8-1 decision, Justice Nicholas Kasirer writes on behalf of the top court that
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The influential sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Friday her country is willing to resume talks with South Korea if conditions are met, indicating it wants Seoul to persuade Washington to relax crippling economic sanctions. Kim Yo Jong’s statement came days after North Korea performed its first missile tests in six months, which some experts said were intended to show it will keep boosting its weapons arsenal if the U.S.-led sanctions continue while nuclear
The YMCA in Saskatoon says it's going further than provincial guidelines to keep people safe from COVID-19. Starting Oct. 1, the YMCA will be requiring proof of vaccination for any parent picking up their child from child care, as well as anyone entering the building for any fitness or other programming. Workers will not accept a negative COVID test as an alternative, despite provincial regulations allowing the practice. "We don't know how long those tests are good for or how you prove that you'
