NEWCASTLE, England (AP) — Newcastle parted ways with manager Steve Bruce on Tuesday as its Saudi ownership began reshaping the team two weeks after buying the Premier League club. The decision is the first big call by the Saudi sovereign wealth fund that took control of the northeast English club, which is in the relegation zone eight matches into the season. Newcastle said Bruce left by “mutual consent” after being in charge since July 2019. Fans were chanting for his firing during Sunday's 3-2

A new airstrike has hit the capital of Ethiopia's Tigray region, residents said Wednesday, while the United Nations said it is slashing by more than half its Tigray presence as a government blockade halts humanitarian aid efforts and people die from lack of food. (Oct. 20)

Two millennia ago, the Roman writer Columella described the vintoria falx, a six-part, specialized pruning tool for grapes. What a stir that tool must have caused among Roman grape growers when it was first introduced! A more recent innovation in pruning, in the last century or so, was the pole pruner, which is a pruning saw or rope-activated shear blade mounted at the end of a pole. With it, you can work on branches even 15 feet high while your feet are planted on terra firma. That's perfect fo
Recent court judgements have freed Hong Kong authorities to use national security powers to deploy tough colonial-era laws in a crackdown against opposition groups, alarming activists and lawyers in the city. Police have launched investigations into acts that took place before the national security law was imposed a year ago, despite assurances by Beijing and Hong Kong that the financial hub's legislation would not be retroactive. "The past is the future," said Simon Young, a professor at the University of Hong Kong's law school.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House committee tasked with investigating the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol has been ramping up its efforts in recent weeks, issuing subpoenas to nearly 20 individuals, including four of former President Donald Trump's advisers and associates. Lawmakers on the committee have made clear that they want to move quickly to obtain testimony and documents related to the attack. One witness summoned to testify, former Trump White House adviser Steve Bannon, is facing a cr
WASHINGTON (AP) — It's Washington's enduring question: What does Joe Manchin want? But increasingly the answer is crystal clear. The conservative West Virginia Democrat wants to dismantle President Joe Biden's proposed climate change strategies and social services expansion in ways that are simply unacceptable for most in his party. So the question becomes less about what Manchin wants and more about whether Biden can bring him, the party's other centrist senators and its progressives to middle
The newly elected mayor of Botwood has only been on the job a few weeks and is already facing a town tragedy. Two people in the central Newfoundland town died over the weekend, marking the 14th and 15th deaths from COVID-19 since the pandemic began and serving as a reminder of how deadly the fourth wave has been. In the first year and a half under the pandemic, the province marked seven deaths — but in the past month alone, eight people have died. "It's close to home. Everyone in town, or say 70

TORONTO — Ontario Premier Doug Ford would not apologize Tuesday for comments about immigrants that some called "callous" and "xenophobic," raising concerns that he was feeding negative stereotypes about newcomers. While talking about a shortage of workers in the province a day earlier, Ford said people who want to come and work their "tail off" like every other new Canadian has done should come to Ontario, but those who want to "collect the dole and sit around" should go elsewhere. New Democrat
TOKYO (AP) — Japan's new prime minister interrupted his first day of election campaigning and returned to Tokyo on Tuesday to deal with rising regional tensions following North Korea's test-firing of a missile earlier in the day. Fumio Kishida's campaign was already off to a rocky start with media polls showing his support rating sliding. Tuesday was the first official day of campaigning for nationwide legislative elections scheduled for Oct. 31. “I will drastically strengthen our defense capabi
ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — The leader of Newfoundland and Labrador's New Democrats has announced she's stepping down following a vote by her party on Sunday to review her role. Alison Coffin says she's resigning so the NDP's new executive council can focus on the future of the party and the province. The council was elected during a provincial NDP convention that saw a 57 per cent vote in favour of a leadership review. Coffin, an economist, became party leader in March 2019 and won the riding of St. Joh
