NEW YORK (AP) — An unvaccinated former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tested positive for COVID-19 Monday, forcing a postponement of a trial in her libel lawsuit against The New York Times. The Republican's positive test was announced in court just as jury selection was set to begin at a federal courthouse in New York City. Palin claims the Times damaged her reputation with an opinion piece penned by its editorial board that falsely asserted her political rhetoric helped incite the 2011 shooting of the
YAOUNDE, Cameroon (AP) — Watch this space. The Comoros soccer team has been giving one of its outfield players a crash course in guarding its goal at the African Cup of Nations after injuries and positive coronavirus tests left it without a goalkeeper for the biggest game in its history. The situation is so sensitive — and unprecedented — that Comoros hasn't yet identified the player chosen to try and keep out high-scoring Cameroon in their round-of-16 game on Monday at Africa's most prestigious
LONDON (AP) — Once Hakim Ziyech's curling, dipping strike landed in the Tottenham goal, Chelsea never looked back. Sure, it took until two minutes into the second half to break the deadlock. But the space gifted for Thiago Silva's header in the 55th minute to seal a 2-0 win on Sunday was a snapshot of this most lopsided of London rivalries. Chelsea should never have doubted its four-match winless run in the Premier League would end on Sunday. Not even with former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte go

The association that represents 14,000 physicians, residents and medical students in British Columbia is once again asking employers to do away with any requirements for sick notes during the COVID-19 pandemic. "Sick notes place an unnecessary burden on the health-care system particularly now during the Omicron surge," said Dr. Ramneek Dosanjh, president of Doctors of B.C. "If a patient is sick they need to stay at home to recover, not come into the doctor's office." The demand comes as thousand

BERLIN (AP) — Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Germany's 16 state governors decided Monday to keep existing coronavirus restrictions in place and examine how best to use increasingly strained PCR test capacities as the highly contagious omicron variant fuels a steep rise in infections. Germany has hit a series of daily infection records over the past two weeks as omicron has spread. On Monday, the national disease control center said 840.3 new cases per 100,000 residents have been recorded over the pa

Since moving back to Nova Scotia in March 2020, Natasha Ernst has struggled to find affordable housing. She and her husband have lived in about a half-dozen rental units and spent last summer and fall living in a school bus because they couldn't find long-term housing. Ernst said all they could find were short-term rentals and Airbnbs. Once they'd start living in a unit, the countdown was on for moving to the next one. "It's unbelievably stressful," she said. "We can never feel settled ... you j

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — School administrators in a central Florida county canceled a seminar for history teachers on the U.S. civil rights movement, in part, because it had not been screened to make sure it was free of critical race theory, which the college professor planning the presentation says it didn't have. Michael Butler said Monday that he had been scheduled to give a presentation over the weekend before Osceola County teachers on the history of the U.S. civil rights movement since 1896 wh
Slava Voynov and Artem Anisimov are among the former NHL players named to Russia’s roster for the upcoming Beijing Olympics. The Russians are the defending champions after winning gold in Pyeongchang four years ago when the NHL also did not send players. They should be the favorite once again in another Winter Games without the world's best players, even with Pavel Datsyuk and Ilya Kovalchuk not returning. The Russian Hockey Federation named its 25-man roster Sunday that features seven players b
