Anyone diagnosed with dementia will eventually have to make the decision whether it is safe for them to continue driving, but that inevitability doesn't make the decision any easier. Two doctors with decades of experience in gerontology hope a website they launched last month will be a guide to the way forward for people, both those with dementia and those trying to help them. "Driving is one of the most cognitively demanding things that any one of us do on a very regular basis," geriatrician Ga
NEW YORK (AP) — “Gaslighting” — behavior that's mind manipulating, grossly misleading, downright deceitful — is Merriam-Webster's word of the year. Lookups for the word on merriam-webster.com increased 1,740% in 2022 over the year before. But something else happened. There wasn't a single event that drove significant spikes in curiosity, as it usually goes with the chosen word of the year. The gaslighting was pervasive. “It’s a word that has risen so quickly in the English language, and especial
Russell and Miles are a father-and-son Norwich Terrier combo of fun. And today? Why there’s fresh snow! The first of the season! It’s November 16, 2022, and we're here in Ottawa, Canada’s capital city. The weather is mild, the snowflakes are fluffy and it’s time for some puppy-play! Although Russell hasn’t seen snow in at least six months, at the grand age of three, he has seen that many winters so far. In fact, Russell came into the world in wintertime and for a while, he must have thought this frozen world was all there was. What a surprise he must have had as the snow began to melt and the flowers began to bloom after many months of cold and dark. Ah, but that’s another story. Today, Russell gets to be the experienced gentleman, hesitating only a brief moment before bravely plunging forth into the white stuff. On the other hand, Miles has never seen such a wonder before. His four-month-old world has been transformed overnight. Let’s freshly discover it ourselves, right along with him … and his dad, as they step out of the doorway and into icy-cold adventure!

A former Hydro-Québec employee charged with spying for China was released on bail Monday. Yuesheng Wang, 35, was arrested by the RCMP on Nov. 14 and has been in custody since.

AL RAYYAN, Qatar — Croatia booted Canada out of the World Cup on Sunday, then kicked it when it was down. While the Canadians still have one game left to play in Group F, Sunday's 4-1 loss to Croatia ended their hopes of advancing to the knockout round.

Russia has been launching massive missile bombardments on Ukraine's energy infrastructure roughly weekly since early October, with each attack having greater impact than the last as damage accumulates and winter sets in. In an overnight address, Zelenskiy said he expected new attacks this week that could be as bad as last week's, the worst yet, which left millions of people with no heat, water or power.

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — If England needs any added motivation in its final World Cup group game against Wales on Tuesday, they only need to watch a certain video from 2016. Footage of Wales players celebrating wildly as their UK neighbor crashed out of the European Championship after losing to Iceland went viral at the time. England was humiliated. Wales, which lost 2-1 to the Three Lions in the group stage but went on to reach the semifinal, was jubilant. Much has changed since then — a point Englan
