LONDON (AP) — Eight Tottenham players and five members of staff have tested positive for the coronavirus, manager Antonio Conte said Wednesday, prompting an announcement by the English team that its Europa Conference League match against Rennes has been called off. Tottenham said discussions were being held with UEFA about rearranging the game that was scheduled to take place on Thursday in London. It needs to be played by Dec. 31, according to UEFA regulations, which could be problematic given
THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — A Dutch appeals court upheld Tuesday a lower court's decision to throw out a civil case against Israel's defense minister and another former senior military officer over their roles in a deadly 2014 airstrike. The Hague District Court ruled in January 2020 that the case against Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz and former air force commander Amir Eshel couldn't proceed because the men have “functional immunity from jurisdiction.” The Hague Court of Appeal said Tu

Recent developments: What's the latest? Top health officials say COVID-19 vaccines are a key tool to help keep people safe if they're gathering indoors for the holidays. Officials in Quebec and Ontario say people should mask and distance if they're around unvaccinated people indoors, with Quebec's public health director going further and recommending that vaccinated and unvaccinated people don't mix. Ontario's science table says too many Ontarians are unvaccinated and that means there's still a

GENEVA (Reuters) -Governments need to reassess national responses to COVID-19 and speed up vaccination programmes to tackle Omicron, though it is it too early to say how well existing shots will protect against the new variant, the World Health Organization said on Wednesday. The variant's global spread suggests it could have a major impact on the COVID-19 pandemic, and the time to contain it is now before more Omicron patients are hospitalised, WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said. The WHO noted early evidence from BioNTech and Pfizer of the effectiveness of their vaccine against Omicron.
With the year nearly over, only about a tenth of the 40,000 Afghan refugees the federal government promised to bring into the country have made it here so far — and Ottawa now says it could take up to two years to resettle everyone. After promising back in September to bring the refugees here, the federal government is now citing a vague timeline for their resettlement. Immigration Minister Sean Fraser's office told CBC News they will be welcomed into this country "over the next two years." Fras
This adorable ocelot was another victim of the wildlife traffic, but was lucky enough to be rescued and taken to a Wildlife Refuge. She lives with a male, and it's usually exploring the enclosure, but she will sometimes come over to the switch area to interact with her caretakers. On this day, a volunteer was wearing leopard-print rubber boots, and she was very curious about it and wanted to check it out! How cute is that?! The Ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) is a small wild cat, but it is the biggest member of the genus Leopardus, which also includes the Margay (Leopardus wiedii), the Northern Tiger Cat (Leopardus tigrinus), the Andean Mountain Cat (Leopardus jacobita), the Kodkod (Leopardus guigna), the Geoffroy's Cat (Leopardus geoffroyi), the Pampas Cat (Leopardus colocolo), and the Southern Tiger Cat (Leopardus guttulus). It is native to the Americas and can be found in various habits, such as tropical forests, thorn scrub regions, savannah grasslands, marshes and mangrove forests. It is widely distributed, from northern Argentina to the southwestern United States, and it's the most common cat species throughout much of its range. At the moment the main threats for ocelots are habitat loss and fragmentation, retaliatory killing for depredation of poultry, and the illegal trade of pets and fur. After drugs and weapons, the illegal wildlife trade is the third most valuable illicit commerce in the world. Only one out of ten trafficked animals survive! Do not support the pet trade; do not buy wildlife products! Wild animals should be wild and free!
While discussing new COVID-19 modelling projections for Ontario on Tuesday, chief medical officer of health Dr. Kieran Moore advised residents to avoid large crowds and practice physical distancing as the winter holidays approach.
