Justice N.E. Devlin wrote in his ruling Thursday that allowing unvaccinated people to serve on the jury could unfairly compromise the health of other jurors, court staff and anyone else connected with the trial. Further, Devlin said an unvaccinated juror could be a distraction to other jurors by causing th

NEWBERG, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon school board has banned educators from displaying Black Lives Matter and gay pride symbols, prompting a torrent of recriminations and threats to boycott the town and its businesses.

Borussia Mönchengladbach highlighted Borussia Dortmund’s reliance on its two star players as it dealt its Bundesliga rival a 1-0 defeat in former Gladbach coach Marco Rose’s return on Saturday.

In a similar case in Quebec, a Superior Court judge ruled that a mother was allowed to have h

The Federal Reserve’s signal that it will soon unwind its bond buying program is bolstering the case in financial markets for the so-called reflation trade, which lifted Treasury yields and boosted shares of banks, energy firms and other economically sensitive companies in the early months of 2021. Though monetary tightening is frequently seen as a drag on stocks, some investors view the Fed’s stance as a vote of confidence for the U.S. economy. "Normally, a hawkish turn would be bad for risk-on assets, particularly equities... the fact the Fed is putting this out there signals to the market that the economy is on pretty firm footing," said Ralph Bassett, head of North American equities at Aberdeen Standard Investments.

Don't walk to get your flu shot," he said, speaking from his office at the Vancouver Infectious Disease Centre. "I think there is great consensus behind the statements that there will be a significant influenza season going forward."
