MONROE, La. (AP) — Growing up in the piney backwoods of northern Louisiana, where yards were dotted with crosses and the occasional Confederate flag, Jacob Brown was raised on hunting, fishing and dreams of becoming a state trooper. But within weeks of arriving at the Louisiana State Police training academy in Baton Rouge, instructors pegged Brown as trouble. One wrote that he was an arrogant, chronic rule breaker with “toxic” character traits that should disqualify him from ever joining the sta
BERLIN (AP) — The head of the United Nations says a “leadership gap” is undermining the world's efforts to curb global warming, days before presidents and prime ministers from around the globe gather for a climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told reporters Tuesday that time is running out to cut greenhouse gas emissions and meet the goals of the 2015 Paris accord to avert global warming that he said could become “an existential threat to humanity.” “The c
Starting Monday, Ontario is lifting capacity limits in places such as gyms, restaurants, bars and other indoor establishments where proof of vaccination against COVID-19 is required. Morganne Campbell has more.
Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe says the COVID-19 situation is improving, new restrictions aren’t needed and would be unfair to the vaccinated. Public health experts are calling for gathering limits, which the mayor of Saskatoon is bringing in.
TORONTO — A drama about an Indigenous graduate student involved in a debate over the sale of alcohol on her Quebec reserve has won a top prize at the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival. "Bootlegger," directed and co-written by Algonquin-French filmmaker Caroline Monnet of Outaouais, Que., took the $7,500 Dramatic Feature Award at the festival that wrapped Sunday.

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe says he will not bring in additional COVID-19 measures because it ultimately takes away people's personal freedoms. He says COVID-19 vaccines are widely available, so his Saskatchewan Party government will not impose lockdowns or restrictions that could lead to business closures.
GUILFORD, Conn. (AP) — A racial reckoning began years ago for the Guilford school system, first with an episode in which a student wore blackface makeup to a home football game and then a fraught debate over the elimination of its mascot, the Indians. After the killing of George Floyd, district leaders announced they were doubling down on efforts to address social justice and racism in schools and teaching materials. But an organized pushback in the overwhelmingly white community began last year
We had a night club client asking for some downtown San Antonio nighttime skyline photos, so while we were getting some shots lined up, we also did some video footage. We launched from an empty bank parking lot, just north of the IH-35 highway, so the video is looking south from the direction of Brooklyn and Elmira. We recorded this somewhere around 10:30pm and flew at about 200ft AGL. The drone did have all of the required nighttime anti-collision strobe and orientation lights installed. We mapped the course to stay over empty parking lots and buildings, something that was very easy to do that time of night on a Saturday. There were a couple of helicopters flying around the area, but they were above the 400-500 height generally and did not fly near where the drone was operating. There are at least 2 helipads downtown, located at the Baptist Medical Center Hospital and the Christus Santa Rosa Children's Hospital. This area was unrestricted airspace, other than keeping an eye out for lower flying aircraft heading to one of those heliports.

SYDNEY (Reuters) -All fully-vaccinated Australian citizens and permanent residents will be able to leave the country without a special exemption from Nov. 1, authorities said on Wednesday, as Australia eases coronavirus restrictions amid a rise in vaccination rates. Many of these are now expected to return after Sydney and Melbourne ended quarantine rules for inoculated travelers from Nov. 1. Other cities, mostly virus-free, are expected to ease their border rules once they reach higher vaccination rates.
RCMP are investigating what they believe to be a case of arson in central P.E.I. The report of a fire in a house at 371 Nelson St. in Crapaud came in at about 2 a.m. Sunday. RCMP Const. Mathieu Aubin said there was no one living in the house, and no one was inside when firefighters arrived. "We were told that nobody lived there for at least 12 years," said Aubin. "We're looking into it right now, though the evidence suggests that the house was intentionally set on fire." Most of the house appear
VICTORIA — Some of the containers that caught fire on a cargo ship off Victoria contained hazardous materials, but air quality monitoring along the city's waterfront had found no negative results, the Canadian Coast Guard said Monday. A flyover of the MV Zim Kingston showed no visible flames, although a salvage master had indicated there were still pockets of fire and some containers had "internal fires," Paul Barrett, an official with the coast guard, told a media briefing. Crews had been spray

An IT security analyst in Halifax says the provincial government is failing to protect Nova Scotians from potential online impostors who steal personal information with lookalike websites. So for $20, Logan Atwood registered the web address "govns.ca" so it can't be used in so-called "typosquatting" attacks. "Working in the industry, I realized just how many bad things that domain could be used for," Logan said. Typosquatting is the practice of buying web addresses that are nearly identical to p
TORONTO — Up to 50,000 education workers in Ontario could be fired if COVID-19 vaccines were mandated for that sector, the province's education minister said Tuesday. Responding to the NDP in question period, Stephen Lecce said such a policy would mean pink slips for tens of thousands of educators when Ontario already faces staffing challenges. "I think we have to be coupled by realism and ensure that any staff member who enters our school has a double test, a negative antigen test, to ensure th
The Dow Industrials and S&P 500 closed at record highs on Monday, as earnings season kicked in to high gear in one of the heaviest reporting weeks of the quarter with bellwethers in multiple sectors poised to announce results. While the Dow and S&P hit new highs, the Nasdaq outperformed on the day, buoyed by gains in Tesla and PayPal, and the tech-heavy index stands less than 1% away from its Sept. 7 closing record. Tesla Inc jumped 12.66% to its own new high of $1,045.02 and breached $1 trillion in market capitalization, after car rental firm Hertz placed an order for 100,000 Tesla cars, while Morgan Stanley raised its price target on the stock to $1,200 from $900 per share.
Camp Gencheff, a non-profit camp on P.E.I. that offers year-round programming to adults and children with intellectual and physical disabilities, is looking to hire more staff to meet a growing need for services. Executive director Elysia Hickox said there has been an increase in demand for the day camps, after-school programs and weekend respite care. She said Camp Gencheff gets daily calls from schools, social workers and family members wanting to register their child or adult in one of the pr
The provincial government announced Tuesday that it is spending $20 million this year to hire 193 new inspections staff and launch a proactive inspections program in Ontario's long-term care homes. Proactive inspections were all but stopped by the province before the pandemic, as a CBC News investigation showed that only nine out of 626 homes in Ontario actually received so-called "resident quality inspections" in 2019. The long-term care sector was devastated by COVID-19, with a Canadian Armed
