Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko warned that the temperature in homes could drop rapidly in the event of "a blackout and the destruction of infrastructure and a total absence of electricity, water supply, drainage and heat supply". "The temperature in the apartments may not differ much from the outside temperature," the former boxing champion told a security forum in Kyiv, where temperatures are around -4 degrees Celsius (25 degrees Fahrenheit).
WASHINGTON (AP) — Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes was convicted Tuesday of seditious conspiracy for a violent plot to overturn President Joe Biden’s election, handing the Justice Department a major victory in its massive prosecution of the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection. A Washington, D.C., jury found Rhodes guilty of sedition after three days of deliberations in the nearly two-month-long trial that showcased the far-right extremist group’s efforts to keep Republican Donald Trump in the White Ho

Police are warning people in the Halifax Regional Municipality about a scam targeting seniors that has already stolen thousands of dollars from victims. Police say the scam usually starts with a phone call from someone posing as a friend or relative who's been arrested and jailed. "And then, at that point, they get on the phone with someone else, maybe a lawyer or whatever who they pretend to be, in order to get them to pay money to have their loved one released from custody," Const.

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia voters have cast more than 1 million ballots ahead of the Dec. 6 runoff between Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker, with Warnock looking to juice an apparent Democratic head start in early voting with a visit Thursday from Barack Obama. The former president will campaign with Warnock on the eve of the final day of early voting. The rally, which promises to be the largest event of Warnock’s four-week runoff blitz, underscores the two p
WASHINGTON (AP) — The seditious conspiracy convictions of Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and another leader in the far-right extremist group show that jurors are willing to hold accountable not just the rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, but those who schemed to subvert the 2020 election. Tuesday's verdict, while not a total win for the Justice Department, gives momentum to investigators just as the newly named special counsel ramps up his probe into key aspects of the in

BERLIN (AP) — It is time for China to move away from massive lockdowns and toward a more targeted approach to COVID-19, the head of the International Monetary Fund said days after widespread protests broke out, a change that would ease the impact to a world economy already struggling with high inflation, an energy crisis and disrupted food supply. IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva urged a “recalibration” of China's tough “zero-COVID" approach aimed at isolating every case “exactly becau

OTTAWA — HIV activists are marking World AIDS Day by urging Ottawa to help stop a global backslide in progress on stemming infections and stigma. "It's clear to us that this government is seized of the issue, but the truth of the matter is, no movement is happening quickly enough for people with HIV living in Canada," says Janet Butler-McPhee, who co-leads the HIV Legal Network in Toronto. The Public Health Agency of Canada estimated that 62,790 people in Canada were living with HIV in 2020, and
AL RAYYAN, Qatar (AP) — If it was Gareth Bale’s final game for Wales, it ended rather unceremoniously. The Wales captain was substituted at halftime of the team's match against England at the World Cup on Tuesday because of an injury. While it was unclear when Bale was hurt, it appeared he was struggling late in the first half of the team’s final Group B match. He was replaced by Brennan Johnson. Wales crumbled once Bale went off. England scored about five minutes into the second half and added

Following a major storm such as Fiona, it is normal to feel anxious when the next strong wind strikes, but it is important to seek help if those feelings are interfering with your daily life, says a psychologist. Post-tropical storm Fiona devastated properties across P.E.I. on Sept. 24 and left tens thousands without electricity for more than a week — some much longer. With P.E.I. under a wind warning Wednesday night into Thursday morning, it would have been natural for some Islanders to feel an
Sea turtles are among the most beautiful and peaceful animals on earth. They drift through the ocean with elegance and tranquility. For many who swim or scuba dive in the ocean, encountering a sea turtle is one of the most memorable experiences ever. To share the reef with them for a few minutes on their own terms is a magical experience. Occasionally, scuba divers may encounter a turtle grabbing a snooze on the coral or on the sea floor. A full grown sea turtle has only a few predators and they will rest on the ocean bottom with confidence, even though they may keep their eyes partially open in case a threat appears. With a slow and cautious approach, sea turtles will sometimes regard humans with mild curiosity, or with indifference. This scuba diver slowly descended to the sandy bottom and approached the turtle from the side. Taking his time, he avoided approaching from above, or straight on, as either would possibly alarm the turtle. Once it was clear that the turtle was not concerned, he crawled slowly over the sand, capturing video of the sleepy turtle. The image is zoomed slightly, but the diver was able to rest on the sand only a few meters from this beautiful creature. After getting a close look and a short video, the diver made his way over the sand with a slow crawl so he would not disturb the turtle. Once clear of the area, he lifted off the sand and swam away in search of other sights. This is a Pacific Green Turtle that lives in the waters surrounding Komodo Island in Indonesia. This area is famous for being the home of the world's largest and most ferocious lizards, the Komodo dragons. The waters around these islands are equally exciting to explore and they are home to sea turtles, manta rays, sharks, and fish of magnificent colour and indescribable beauty. The underwater world is as mysterious as it is beautiful and we are only beginning to understand the complex life that exists beneath the waves.
OTTAWA — Proposed changes to the Official Languages Act are likely to create more "arbitrary barriers" for Indigenous people hoping to work in federal institutions and advance to higher levels, says the Assembly of First Nations. The national advocacy organization, representing more than 600 First Nations across the country, issued its warning to a parliamentary committee that is studying amendments to the law. Last spring, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government introduced plans to reform th
Premier Danielle Smith says the government's proposed sovereignty act would not give the provincial cabinet unchecked powers to rewrite laws, while critics say the premier's signature bill would do just that. "It gives unprecedented ability to a brand new premier to overwhelm and sidestep the legislative assembly of this province and it is an attack on the democratic rights of Albertans, and through that, an attack on the stability of our economy," NDP Leader Rachel Notley said on her way into t

U.S. consumer spending increased solidly in October, while inflation moderated, giving the economy a powerful boost at the start of the fourth quarter as it faces rising headwinds from the Federal Reserve's aggressive monetary policy tightening. The labor market, the economy's other pillar of support, continues to show resilience. The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits declined last week, almost unwinding the prior week's jump, which had lifted claims to a three-month high, other data showed on Thursday.
