Thousands protested in Paris on Saturday to denounce police violence and President Emmanuel Macron's security policy plans which the demonstrators say would crimp civil liberties. There were violent clashes between protesters and police in a similar protest last week. In a U-turn earlier this week, Macron's ruling party said it would rewrite part of a draft security bill that would curb rights to circulate images of police officers after it provoked a strong backlash among the public and the political left.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency does not object to a revised proposal for a massive flood-control project to pump water from parts of the Mississippi Delta, a regional administrator for the agency says. On Oct. 16, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers published a draft of a new environmental impact statement that supports the project, reversing the Corps' own previous report that had said the project would hurt wetlands.
An outrageous fluke threatened to derail Judd Trump’s Betway UK Championship bid but a place in the semi-finals is his after downing Kyren Wilson. Trump raced into a 3-0 lead and looked set for more in Milton Keynes – only for his opponent to produce a fluke to win the fourth frame and regain some much-needed momentum. The two were then locked at 4-4 in their last-eight match and Wilson should have gone into the lead, but Trump held his own to progress 6-4 and reach Saturday’s semi-finals, where China’s Lu Ning awaits.

The son of seven times Formula One champion Michael is graduating to F1 next year after securing a seat at Ferrari-powered Haas. Schumacher, who started 18th and nine places behind fellow Ferrari Academy driver Ilott, gained two extra points for the fastest race lap to make sure his lead over the Briton remained unchanged.

The COVID-19 outbreak at St. Martin Catholic Elementary School, located in Smithville, has ended. Niagara Region Public Health notified the Catholic Board on Friday. The first confirmed COVID-19 case was identified at St. Martin on Nov. 14. Less than a week later, on Nov. 19, a second case was confirmed, which resulted in public health declaring an outbreak. Provincial guidelines indicate “an outbreak in a school is defined as two or more lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases in school with an epidemiological link, within a 14-day period, where at least one case could have reasonably acquired their infection.” Since public health declared the outbreak, eight additional cases were confirmed, bringing St. Martin’s total case-count to 10. The Catholic Board did confirm that nine of the 10 COVID-19 cases were associated with the outbreak. The provincial database that reports on school-related COVID-19 cases in Ontario lists seven active cases; however, the provincial database lags behind school boards in its reporting. As of Friday, Niagara Catholic’s website site is not reporting any new cases. All cases are listed as resolved. All classes affected by the outbreak are now open at St. Martin.

BURNLEY, England — Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored his Premier League-leading 11th goal of the season to earn Everton a 1-1 draw at Burnley on Saturday.The England striker slid in to convert a left-wing cross from Richarlison in the third minute of first-half stoppage time and kept up his goal-a-game average after 11 rounds of the season. Calvert-Lewin has two more goals than his nearest rival, Son Heung-min of Tottenham.Burnley took the lead in the third minute when Robbie Brady’s speculative long-range shot with his weaker right foot beat Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and found the bottom corner of the net.Pickford did better with two other efforts from Burnley, though, getting down well to deny Chris Wood in a one-on-one chance in the first half and then tipping aside a header from the striker at a late corner.Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope stuck out his right foot to keep out a close-range shot from Gylfi Sigurdsson in second-half stoppage time to secure a point for his team, which has only one win from its opening 10 games and remained in the relegation zone.Having started the league campaign with four straight wins, Everton has only won one of its last seven games and dropped into mid-table.Everton lost midfielder Fabian Delph to a suspected hamstring injury in the first half.___More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsThe Associated Press
