Not so with this Bissell Crosswave Pet Multi-Surface Wet/Dry Vacuum. This vacuum's technology allows for both the vacuuming and washing of your carpets and floors to take place at the same time.

LONDON (AP) — Facebook parent Meta's quasi-independent oversight board said Tuesday that an internal system that exempted high-profile users, including former U.S. President Donald Trump, from some or all of its content moderation rules needs a major overhaul. The report by the Oversight Board, which was more than a year in the making, said the system “is flawed in key areas which the company must address." Meta asked the board to look into the system after The Wall Street Journal reported last
MONTREAL — In the 73 minutes on Tuesday afternoon that it took for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and five other dignitaries to officially open the 15th global talks to save nature from human destruction, statistics suggest another 4,000 hectares of forest around the world was lost to that same force. It is the kind of damage the meeting is looking to stop as the world faces a biodiversity crisis that is risking human health, contributing to food insecurity and exacerbating climate change. "Natur
Holding roses and candles, people gathered in Toronto on Tuesday to honour 14 women who were murdered at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal 33 years ago. The candlelight vigil paid respects not only to the women gunned down by Marc Lépine that day, in an attack known as the Montreal Massacre, but also to all women around the world who have been murdered by men.

Four people have been arrested after a string of copper-wire thefts in Fredericton and Oromocto, RCMP said Monday. Since September, the thefts in the Fredericton and Oromocto areas have amounted to more than $1.4 million in losses suffered by households, businesses and government departments, the RCMP said in a news release. The repeated thefts have left residents without some TV, internet and phone services for varying periods of time. Bell Aliant said the system had suffered four significant o
NEW YORK (AP) — More than three dozen women have filed a lawsuit in New York against writer and director James Toback, accusing him of sexual abuse. The lawsuit, filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan on Monday, comes after New York state last month instituted a one-year window for people to file lawsuits over sexual assault claims even if they took place decades ago, waiving statutes of limitations. Accusations that Toback had engaged in sexual abuse going back years surfaced in late 2017, f
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Doug Ford marked the opening of Canada's first full-scale electric vehicle manufacturing plant in Ingersoll, Ont.

LUSAIL, Qatar (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo was a solitary figure as he walked off the field following a World Cup match in which he was not the center of attention. He’d come off the bench in a 6-1 victory over Switzerland on Tuesday that moved Portugal into the quarterfinals. Ronaldo's 21-year-old replacement scored a hat trick in the win — a performance sure to raise questions over Ronaldo's future with his national team. Ronaldo congratulated Gonçalo Ramos at midfield at the end of the game, then
The Vancouver Park Board has voted to remove a dedicated cycling lane through Stanley Park — at least for the time being. On Monday, city park board commissioners voted 6-1 for a motion to scrap the temporary bike lane that has been in place since 2020, while asking to staff to come up with a permanent cycling infrastructure plan for the downtown park expected by spring. "We brought this motion forward because we were worried about equitable access," said park board commissioner Angela Haer, who

The suicide bomber was believed to be affiliated with the Islamic State-inspired group Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) and had previously been jailed on terrorism charges, Indonesian police chief Listyo Sigit Prabowo told a news conference. The police chief said the attacker, identified as Agus Sujatno, was released in late 2021 and investigators had found dozens of documents protesting the country's controversial new criminal code at the crime scene.
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
GENEVA (Reuters) -Global airlines are predicting their first industry-wide profit since 2019 next year as air travel rebounds from COVID-19 restrictions, while a new war of words erupted with airports on Tuesday over rising air fares and ground charges. Airlines lost tens of billions of dollars in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, but air travel has partially recovered and some airports have struggled to cope. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) now expects a net profit of $4.7 billion for the industry next year, with more than 4 billion passengers set to fly.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California could become the first state to fine big oil companies for making too much money, a reaction to the industry's supersized profits following a summer of record-high gas prices in the nation's most populous state. Gov. Gavin Newsom and his Democratic allies in the state Legislature introduced the proposal Monday as lawmakers returned to the state Capitol in Sacramento for the start of a special legislative session focused solely on the oil industry. But the pro

Liberal MLAs are calling on the Higgs government to hold a public update on the spread of respiratory illnesses in New Brunswick, the state of health care, and what people can do to protect themselves and their families in advance of holiday gatherings. "Right now everyone has friends, family members or colleagues who are uncommonly sick and we all know our hospital system isn't in a position to serve them," Rob McKee, leader of the Official Opposition and health critic, said in a statement Tues
