Four former employees of carmaker Volkswagen went on trial on Thursday over the Dieselgate scandal in which illegal software was used to cheat emission tests. The trial, being held in the city of Braunschweig, close to Volkswagen's headquarters in Wolfsburg, started without former CEO Martin Winterkorn, whose separate trial will take place at a later date. The four employees, who are accused of fraud, had been aware of the illegal software but failed to raise the issue, instead seeking to maximise profits for the carmaker and, as a result, their performance bonuses, Braunschweig prosecutors said.
Los Angeles Dodgers co-owner Todd Boehly made a lucrative offer last March that Sportradar Group AG founder and CEO Carsten Koerl could not pass up. He proposed a merger with his special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) Horizon Acquisition Corp II that would have valued Sportradar at $10 billion. Yet Wall Street's mood was about to sour toward SPAC deals, then its hottest dealmaking trend.
Beginning Friday, the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) will use text and recorded messages for their initial notifications of COVID-19 test results to manage the increase of positive cases across the province. In May, the SHA launched the auto-notification system for negative COVID-19 test results, but that service will now be used to notify COVID-19-positive people faster so they can start their self-isolation immediately. People will be asked at testing centres for their telephone number. W
NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — Cyprus' Orthodox Church formally took charge Thursday of two ornately decorated 18th century doors stolen from a church in the ethnically divided island's breakaway north and reclaimed from a Japanese art college after a long legal battle. Communications and Works Minister Yiannis Karousos said the wooden doors — painted with religious scenes, carved and gilded — were discovered at the Kanazawa Art College more than 20 years ago and their return followed “long and intensiv
Five of the six candidates in the riding of Sydney-Victoria agree that health care is one of the biggest concerns for voters in next week's federal election. Asked during a debate in Sydney on Wednesday to name the three most pressing issues, most also said housing and the economy are important, but there were differences when it came to other priorities. The incumbent, Liberal Jaime Battiste, said in addition to health care, the federal government's COVID-19 pandemic response and the environmen
In one of Carrie Shogan's treasured videos, she can be seen cheering on one of her rescued pigs as it rolls in mud for the first time. The star of that clip, called Strawberry, had rarely been outside before he arrived at the Little Oink Bank Sanctuary in Oliver, B.C., three years ago, Shogan recalls. He had previously lived in a townhouse, kept there illegally as a pet by his owners. Another of the rescued pigs at Shogan's sanctuary was kept in a condo in Vancouver. Like other people who buy pi
BERLIN (AP) — German security officials said Thursday they had detained four people — one of them a 16-year-old — who were allegedly planning to attack a synagogue in the western city of Hagen with explosives. The detentions took place on Yom Kippur, the holiest day in Judaism, and two years after a deadly attack in another German city on the Yom Kippur holiday. “One of the four people was a teenager living in Hagen,” police spokeswoman Tanja Pfeffer in nearby Dortmund told The Associated Press.
Woodstock residents Janice King and Jennifer Campbell delivered a pointed message to council members Tuesday evening, Sept. 14, regarding last spring’s removal of barriers blocking motorized traffic from the Trans Canada Trail through the town. Replace them "immediately," they said. King, who requested the opportunity to address council, said she represented "all the walkers, joggers and bikers" who regularly use the trail, as well as residents who live near it. She said that since the barriers
With more than twice as much rain as normal for September already on P.E.I., there are some concerns it may be getting too wet for the potato crop. Through August growing conditions had been good, said P.E.I. Potato Board general manager Greg Donald, with good heat and timely rain. Then came record-setting rains from the remnants of Hurricane Ida on Sept. 2, with more than a month's worth of rain falling. There have been significant rainfalls since: 209.5 mm in the first half of the month, more
After 16 years in power, Chancellor Angela Merkel is not seeking re-election in Germany's Sept. 26 election but she is anything but a lame duck. The likelihood of protracted coalition talks after the vote means Merkel will not be leaving office any time soon and she fully intends to use her time after the election to press on with foreign policy initiatives, government officials say. Under the German constitution, Merkel will remain chancellor until a majority of Bundestag lawmakers elects a successor, who is then sworn in.
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) -Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel attended a lavish military parade at Mexico's 200th anniversary of independence on Thursday, ahead of a summit that will convene recently elected members of a "pink tide" of leftist Latin American leaders. The presidents of Argentina, Bolivia, Peru and elsewhere will meet on Saturday at the summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), a regional body that Venezuela's late leader Hugo Chavez helped set up in 2011. Diaz-Canel's trip to Mexico is the Cuban leader's first foreign visit since huge protests swept the island in July, shaking the communist government as it struggles to manage the coronavirus pandemic and shortages of food, fuel and medicine.
Infectious diseases specialist Dr. Matthew Oughton says gargling the disinfectant betadine can be dangerous and COVID-19 poses a much greater danger to sexual health than the vaccine.
"We do have some people wanting to dial in, and we understand that," Maury McIntyre, president of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, told Variety this week. Last year, the Emmys was held virtually with celebrities joining remotely from homes, gardens and hotel rooms around the world rather than the usual in-person event for more than 4,000 people. "Ted Lasso," a heartwarming comedy about a fish-out-of-water American coaching a struggling British soccer team, and British royal series "The Crown," are expected to be some of the beneficiaries this year.
Calgary's mayor says the city will explore measures it can take to protect residents from the flood of COVID-19 cases overwhelming the province's health-care system. Mayor Naheed Nenshi made the comments just hours after Premier Jason Kenney announced the province was days away from running out of ICU staff to treat patients. The number of patients in intensive care units was at an all-time high, and Alberta was asking other provinces for health-care workers or ICU staff. As well, doctors were b
A Halifax man accused of killing a fellow Dalhousie University student six years ago is making a third attempt to get out of jail while he awaits his second trial on a charge of first-degree murder. Lawyers for William Sandeson, 28, and the Crown appeared in Nova Scotia Supreme Court Thursday morning to confirm a bail review hearing will be held on Oct. 22. Sandeson was just days away from starting courses in Dalhousie University's school of medicine when he allegedly killed Dal student Taylor S
Imola Ilyes says she feels like she might as well have burned her ballot, or ripped it to shreds. Ilyes, who lives in the Toronto-St Paul's riding, cast her vote for NDP candidate Sidney Coles via advance poll on Monday. Less than two days later, it was confirmed Coles was out of the race over tweets that suggested Israel was somehow responsible for missing doses of COVID-19 vaccine in the United States. Coles is one of a number of candidates from several parties who have dropped out, or have be
Saskatchewan should look to Manitoba for how to blunt the fourth wave of COVID-19 and increase vaccinations, says a Regina infectious disease physician as Saskatchewan officials prepared to update the province on the COVID-19 situation. The update from Premier Scott Moe and Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Saqib Shahab at 2 p.m. CT Thursday also comes less than 24 hours after Alberta announced widespread health policies to deal with surging COVID-19 cases and increased hospitalizations. But Dr.
Strong storms are possible in the evening hours for Ontario's northwest, with rotating storms not out of the question.
BRUSSELS (Reuters) -The European Union set out a formal strategy on Thursday to boost its presence in the Indo-Pacific and counter China's rising power, pledging to seek a trade deal with Taiwan and to deploy more ships to keep open sea routes. The EU's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell insisted the strategy was also open to China, particularly in areas such as climate change, but diplomats told Reuters that deeper ties with India, Japan, Australia and Taiwan were aimed at limiting Beijing's power. Borrell also said Wednesday's agreement https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-security-biden-asia/china-fumes-over-australias-nuclear-sub-pact-with-u-s-britain-idUSKBN2GB2BN between the United States, Australia and Britain to establish a security partnership for the Indo-Pacific, in which the EU was not consulted, showed the need for a more assertive foreign policy.
An early-morning kidnapping of a Hamilton man during a violent home invasion left one of his sons dead and another son shot before the 63-year-old was later found in serious condition, police say. Faqir Ali was found on Beach Boulevard near the Burlington Lift Bridge around 9 a.m. ET Thursday with serious, life-threatening injuries, Hamilton police spokesperson Const. Indy Bharaj said. Ali was "taken forcefully" from his home near Glancaster Road and Dickenson Road in Mount Hope around 3 a.m., s
