BEIJING (Reuters) -Universal Studios' Beijing resort opened its doors to the public on Monday after a two-decade wait, including delays because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The park will be U.S.-based Universal's largest and its fifth globally. It is also a first for Beijing, which lacks a big branded theme park to rival the Disney resorts in Shanghai and Hong Kong.
HONG KONG (Reuters) -Growing fears of China Evergrande defaulting rattled global markets on Monday as investors worried about the potential impact on the wider economy dumped Chinese property stocks and sought refuge in safe-haven assets. Shares in Evergrande, which has been scrambling to raise funds to pay its many lenders, suppliers and investors, closed down 10.2% at HK$2.28 on Monday, after earlier plummeting 19% to its weakest level since May 2010. Regulators have warned that its $305 billion of liabilities could spark broader risks to China's financial system if its debts are not stabilised.
CIUDAD ACUÑA, Mexico (Reuters) -A U.S. law enforcement officer on horseback wielded what appeared to be a lariat, whipping it close to the face of a man wading in the Rio Grande carrying a plastic bag of food. It was just one desperate moment in a few hours of such scenes along the Rio Grande on Sunday. Hundreds of Haitian migrants who have been camping under a bridge in the Texas town of Del Rio were trying to bring food and other supplies from Ciudad Acuña in the Mexican state of Coahuila, while U.S. officials have stepped up security at the border and started flying migrants out of the area, some to Haiti.
Canadians are heading to polls across the country today, Monday, Sept. 20, after Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau called the snap election 36 days ago.
DEL RIO, Texas (AP) — The U.S. flew Haitians camped in a Texas border town back to their homeland Sunday and tried blocking others from crossing the border from Mexico in a massive show of force that signaled the beginning of what could be one of America's swiftest, large-scale expulsions of migrants or refugees in decades. More than 320 migrants arrived in Port-au-Prince on three flights, and Haiti said six flights were expected Tuesday. In all, U.S. authorities moved to expel many of the more

Nour Al Masri was so excited to go back to school that she couldn’t sleep the night before. She hugged her new backpack close as she lay in bed imagining what her first day of school will look like. Her younger brother Aktham proudly said he was the only one of his siblings who didn’t take his new backpack to bed. The parents are happy their five children have the opportunity for an education. But the school year is always a stressful time for the Syrian family who came to Halifax almost three y
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats can’t use their $3.5 trillion package bolstering social and climate programs for their plan to give millions of immigrants a chance to become citizens, the Senate’s parliamentarian said late Sunday, a crushing blow to what was the party’s clearest pathway in years to attaining that long-sought goal. The decision by Elizabeth MacDonough, the Senate’s nonpartisan interpreter of its often enigmatic rules, is a damaging and disheartening setback for President Joe Biden, c
A British Columbia health authority says it is facing a severe nursing shortage in a northern city as staff face criticism from COVID-19 protesters. Northern Health, which covers the northern half of B.C., says that other nurses are being diverted to the emergency room, which is affecting care in other wards. That means in some areas of the hospital, there may only be one nurse available on a shift, according to the authority. The health authority described the shortage as 'troubling,' and said
PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) -More than 300 Haitians were returned home on Sunday after the United States ejected them from Texas, leaving many of the would-be migrants demoralized and angry that their search for a better life far away from their impoverished country was over. U.S. border agents began removing groups of mostly Haitian migrants over the weekend from a large makeshift camp they had set up after wading across the Rio Grande separating Mexico and the U.S. state of Texas. The sprawling camp under the international bridge attracted more than 12,000 migrants at one point, dotted with tents and tarps strung up on reeds, as many Haitians who had trekked from as far away as Brazil sought to petition U.S. authorities for entry and to escape rampant poverty and gang violence afflicting the Caribbean nation.
People can light them if they got them as the burning ban has been lifted in most of the rural West Kootenay region. As of late last week open burning is permitted in several fire zones, including Kootenay Lake — which contains Nelson and the Slocan Valley — Arrow, Columbia, Invermere and Cranbrook. The lifting of the ban — which had been in place for nearly three months — unofficially signals the end of the wildfire season in the region. In delivering the decree, the BC Wildfire Service conside
Immigration officials in the U.S. have begun deporting thousands of Haitian migrants camped under and near a bridge in the Texas border community of Del Rio. Haitians have been fleeing destruction and economic instability in their country for years since the devastating 2010 earthquake.
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Brian White scored, Maxime Crépeau made three saves for Vancouver and the Whitecaps tied the Colorado Rapids 1-1 on Sunday night. White chipped a one-touch finish off the crossbar and into the net to pull Vancouver (7-8-9) even in the 41st minute. Déiber Caicedo set up the goal, running onto an errant pass by Colorado’s Danny Wilson in the middle third, charging down the middle and playing a through ball to White in the center of the area. Vancouver has just one loss
After anti-vaccine protests outside hospitals and schools in B.C. this month, representatives of hospital workers and school principals are asking for protest exclusion zones to be put in place around key institutions. Thousands protested B.C.'s vaccine card rules outside hospitals earlier this month, and some healthcare workers were allegedly assaulted. On Friday, schools in and around Salmon Arm, B.C., were put into temporary lockdown after protestors entered them, and are set to remain locked
NEW YORK (AP) — Michaela Jaé “Mj” Rodriguez wore vintage Versace Atelier in teal in an homage to Old Hollywood, her hair flowing down her back, and Billy Porter worked large wings on his black trouser look Sunday at the slimmed-down Emmy Awards. Coming less than a week after the wild and sometimes wacky fashion of the Met Gala, glamour was back at the Emmys. There were looks of soft pink and yellow, statement minis in bright sequins — and Nicole Byer in a stunning strapless purple gown that was

Researchers are collecting samples from bats in northern Cambodia in a bid to understand the coronavirus pandemic, returning to a region where a very similar virus was found in the animals a decade ago. Two samples from horseshoe bats were collected in 2010 in Stung Treng province near Laos and kept in freezers at the Institut Pasteur du Cambodge (IPC) in Phnom Penh. An eight-member IPC research team has been collecting samples from bats and logging their species, sex, age and other details for a week.

EDMONTON — Albertans needing proof they're vaccinated against COVID-19 were able to download cards from the province's website on Sunday, but almost right away some residents said they were easily able to edit them. Dan Shugar, who lives in Calgary, says the card was in a PDF file which he was able to edit to say his name was "Fakus McFakeFace" and that he'd received doses of "Ivermectin Horsey Paste" and "Bleach." He says all of the fields could be edited and making changes was "mindbogglingly
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — The bodies of three people who were trying to illegally cross into Poland from Belarus were found in the border region and another body of a woman was found on Belarus side, Poland's prime minister said Sunday. Premier Mateusz Morawiecki gave no other details but said on Facebook that he's in touch with the interior minister and head of the Border Guards and that any potential links between these “dramatic events and Belarusian provocations” on Poland's eastern border will
