LEEDS, England (AP) — Leeds climbed out of the Premier League's relegation zone in dramatic style Sunday after Pascal Struijk's stoppage-time equalizer secured a 1-1 draw against Brighton. Struijk, an 83rd-minute substitute, headed home at the far post in the second minute of added-on time to lift Leeds a point clear of Burnley after Danny Welbeck had given Albion a halftime lead at Elland Road. Following Burnley’s 1-0 loss at Tottenham earlier Sunday, Struijk’s last-gasp goal ensured Leeds’ bid

While Metrobus's fuel costs soar, the mayor of St. John's says he's still waiting to hear whether the provincial government will apply for federal relief funds.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — It was David Beckham himself who was gassed the first time he led a class in his new 45-minute workout routine. He pushed through the intense finisher he had insisted Gunnar Peterson add to the programming and sheepishly apologized. “I turned to the class and said, ‘I am so sorry. So sorry. That was really difficult,’” Beckham said. “And they were like ‘No, this was great.’ So I was obviously the only one who struggled through it.” Beckham created DB45 with celebrity tr

Just two months ago, Chao Shen bought his dream house in the St. Adolphe, Man., area and set to work making it a home where he and his wife could raise a family. Now, it's more of a nightmare, with his new home's basement underwater. "I'm feeling sad, very sad, because I just bought this March 8 and I spent $40,000 on renovations, and now it's all flooded," he said.

Aubry MacDonald from the North Rustico Fire department. She shuffles the cards for the weekly North Shore Chase the Ace Draw.

ATLANTA (AP) — The great vote-by-mail wave appears to be receding just as quickly as it arrived. After tens of millions of people in the United States opted for mail ballots during the pandemic election of 2020, voters in early primary states are returning in droves to in-person voting this year. In Georgia, one of the mostly hotly contested states, about 85,000 voters had requested mail ballots for the May 24 primary, as of Thursday. That is a dramatic decrease from the nearly 1 million who cas
