DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Welcome back, Neymar, at just the right time at the World Cup. Neymar seemed healthy in training before Monday's game against South Korea in the round of 16. The forward missed the final two matches of the group stage after injuring his right ankle in the opening game win over Serbia. Brazil easily moved into the next round without Neymar. No longer bothered by his ankle, Neymar was expected to start — and not come off the bench as a precautionary measure — if he plays against

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Neymar is in Brazil’s starting lineup for the match against South Korea in the round of 16 at the World Cup on Monday. The star forward hadn’t played since injuring his right ankle in the team’s group stage opener against Serbia. Coach Tite had said Neymar would play from the start at Stadium 974 depending on how he did in training on Sunday. Neymar has 75 goals with Brazil, two shy of the all-time record set by soccer great Pelé. Danilo, who also injured his ankle in Brazil’s
DOHA, Qatar (AP) — American success in the men's World Cup remains a dream. The U.S. team looked better this year, but the results were the same as in 2010 and 2014. The Americans were eliminated in the round of 16 following a 3-1 defeat to the Netherlands on Saturday. “We’ve shown that we can compete with top-tier teams and we just want to change the narrative because we think, obviously, over the past years we haven’t gotten enough respect for U.S. soccer and for the way that we play,” midfiel
JERUSALEM (Reuters) -A Palestinian car thief rammed through a checkpoint on the way to Israel's main airport on Sunday, authorities said, setting off a security alert in what they described as the result of poor navigation on his part rather than an attempted attack. Video circulated on social media showed passengers in Ben Gurion Airport's departure terminal crouching alongside their luggage as instructions sounded over loudhailers. Police said the suspect, a Palestinian in Israel illegally from the occupied West Bank, arrived at the airport checkpoint in a stolen car and raced through toward the main terminal.

TORONTO — It's that much harder for celebrities to escape the glare of the spotlight when social media has given them a direct line to the public's adoration — and acrimony. The online overexposure has driven some A-listers to go on social media hiatus or log off permanently in the name of preserving their mental health. "Spider-Man" star Tom Holland told his tens of millions of followers on Instagram last summer that reading about himself online is "very detrimental to my mental state." His onl
FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Major Western measures to limit Russia's oil profits over the war in Ukraine took effect Monday, bringing with them uncertainty about how much crude could be lost to the world and whether they will unleash the hoped-for hit to a Russian economy that has held up better than many expected under sanctions. In the most far-reaching efforts so far to target one of Moscow's main sources of income, the European Union is banning most Russian oil and the Group of Seven democraci
Excitement was in the air in downtown St. John's on Sunday for the annual Christmas parade. Kids and parents lined the streets, some eagerly camped out in collapsible chairs hours ahead of time, reusable bags filled with donations for the food drive close at hand. "We're going to wait for the Santa parade," said Quinn Graham, one of the many children who arrived on the parade route early. "It's going to happen." A shopkeeper peeked out of his store and smiled at the gathering crowds, his ceramic
The U.S. Supreme Court's conservative majority signaled sympathy on Monday toward an evangelical Christian web designer whose business refuses to provide services for same-sex marriages in a major case pitting LGBT rights against a claim that freedom of speech exempts artists from anti-discrimination laws. The justices heard more than two hours of spirited arguments in Denver-area business owner Lorie Smith's appeal seeking an exemption from a Colorado law that bars discrimination based on sexual orientation and other factors.

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — In a dusty neighborhood on the outskirts of Qatar's capital, guards stand duty at a gated compound ringed with razor wire, carefully checking passports and permits before allowing anyone inside. But this isn't a prison or a high-security area associated with the ongoing World Cup. It's the liquor store. Rigid limits on alcohol are a fact of life in this conservative Muslim nation on the Arabian Peninsula, which follows the same strict Wahhabi interpretation of Islam as its nei
A man was trapped in a bedroom as the ground floor suite around burned on Sunday morning. The Saskatoon Fire Department said they received a call at 5:11 a.m. reporting a fire in a ground-floor suite, according to a news release issued Sunday. Fire engines and a ladder truck were sent to the multi-residential condominium in the 800 Block of Kingsmere Boulevard in the southeastern area of the city, where crews saw flames coming from a window of the suite. The formerly trapped man had escaped thro
It turns out buying a bingo hall can cost you more than a basilica. The Mary Queen of Peace hall on MacDonald Drive, a space hosting popular bingo nights, will be purchased by an unknown buyer for $3 million. That's about $500,000 more than a group of parishioners are paying to save the ornate Basilica of St. John the Baptist, the country's second largest church with a footprint of 29,000 square feet. The Mary Queen of Peace hall property includes a soccer field and baseball diamond, and is loca
From gingerbread cookie decorating to Christmas carols and storytelling with Mrs. Claus, hundreds of families gathered at ATCO Park in Calgary this weekend to celebrate all things winter and raise donations for two charities. Organized by Rümi, ATCO's home solutions company, this is the first year Winter Wonderfest has been held. All proceeds from tickets, which were sold for a minimum of $5, went directly to Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta. The festival also collected new unwrapped toys f

NEW YORK (AP) — A copy of what's being called Stephen Sondheim's first original cast recording has been found on a misplaced CD, capturing the legendary composer's budding skills in a student-led musical while at Williams College in 1948. Sondheim was an 18-year-old sophomore when he wrote the music for “Phinney’s Rainbow,” a show that had just four performances sponsored by Williams’ theatrical organization Cap and Bells. Paul Salsini, a journalist and the author of the new memoir “Sondheim & M
DOHA, Qatar (AP) — The World Cup in Qatar has become a political lightning rod, so it comes as no surprise that soccer fans' sartorial style has sparked controversy. Forget your classic soccer jerseys - the streets of Doha have been transformed into a chaotic runway show in terms of fashion. Visitors from around the world are wearing revamped versions of traditional Gulf Arab headdresses and thobes. Western women have tried out hijabs. England fans have donned crusader costumes. The politically
MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin tried to boost Russian morale Monday by driving a vehicle across a bridge to Crimea that a truck bomb had damaged in October. Putin took the wheel of a Mercedes to drive across the bridge that links Russia’s mainland with the Crimean Peninsula, which Moscow annexed from Ukraine in 2014. Like other Western automakers, Mercedes halted sales of vehicles to Russia and stopped production at its assembly plant near Moscow after the start of Russia's milit
