DOHA, Qatar (AP) — American success in the men's World Cup remains a dream. The U.S. team looked better this year, but the results were the same as in 2010 and 2014. The Americans were eliminated in the round of 16 following a 3-1 defeat to the Netherlands on Saturday. “We’ve shown that we can compete with top-tier teams and we just want to change the narrative because we think, obviously, over the past years we haven’t gotten enough respect for U.S. soccer and for the way that we play,” midfiel

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Welcome back, Neymar, at just the right time at the World Cup. Neymar seemed healthy in training before Monday's game against South Korea in the round of 16. The forward missed the final two matches of the group stage after injuring his right ankle in the opening game win over Serbia. Brazil easily moved into the next round without Neymar. No longer bothered by his ankle, Neymar was expected to start — and not come off the bench as a precautionary measure — if he plays against
DOHA, Qatar (AP) — In a dusty neighborhood on the outskirts of Qatar's capital, guards stand duty at a gated compound ringed with razor wire, carefully checking passports and permits before allowing anyone inside. But this isn't a prison or a high-security area associated with the ongoing World Cup. It's the liquor store. Rigid limits on alcohol are a fact of life in this conservative Muslim nation on the Arabian Peninsula, which follows the same strict Wahhabi interpretation of Islam as its nei

OTTAWA — Revelations that some Canadian veterans have been offered assisted deaths while seeking help from the federal government are adding to concerns about Ottawa’s plans to expand such procedures to include mental-health injuries and illnesses. While medical assistance in dying was approved in 2016 for Canadians suffering from physical injuries and illness, the criteria is set to expand in March to include those living with mental-health conditions. That plan has already sparked concerns fro

Four people have been arrested after a string of copper-wire thefts in Fredericton and Oromocto, RCMP said Monday. Since September, the thefts in the Fredericton and Oromocto areas have amounted to more than $1.4 million in losses suffered by households, businesses and government departments, the RCMP said in a news release. The repeated thefts have left residents without some TV, internet and phone services for varying periods of time. Bell Aliant said the system had suffered four significant o
Global stocks and Treasury prices fell on Monday as new evidence of a strong U.S. economy raised fears that interest rates will stay higher for longer, eclipsing China's easing of pandemic restrictions. U.S. services industry activity unexpectedly picked up in November, with employment rebounding, in the latest sign of underlying economic momentum that could keep the Federal Reserve on alert to tighten policy further as it fights high inflation. Yields, which move inversely to a bond's price, shot higher after the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) said its non-manufacturing PMI increased to 56.5 last month from 54.4 in October, which was the lowest reading since May 2020.
