Lamar Jackson provided one brilliant highlight during an otherwise subpar performance and his 13-yard touchdown pass to Mark Andrews in the third quarter was enough to lift the Baltimore Ravens to a 16-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday night. Jackson threw a career-high four interceptions in this mistake-filled game, but the only touchdown for Baltimore was memorable. Dogged by Cleveland's pass rush all night, Jackson scrambled all the way back to about the 35-yard line before lofting a pass over the middle to a remarkably open Andrews in the end zone.

SASKATOON — Late misses helped decide a wild, entertaining and rather shocking women's final at Canada's Olympic curling trials on Sunday. Jennifer Jones stunningly blew a golden opportunity to win the game in the 10th end. The timing of Tracy Fleury's error in the extra end proved even more costly. When the dust settled, Jones escaped with an enthralling 6-5 victory to book her team's ticket to the Beijing Games. "We're there to pick each other up when you miss," Jones said. "Not everybody can

"Omicron is a reminder of the risk that still exists at our borders," Ardern said at the news conference.
The Philippines launched on Monday an ambitious drive to vaccinate nine million people against COVID-19 over three days, deploying security forces and using tens of thousands of volunteers to help administer the programme. The immunisation campaign was scaled back from an earlier target of 15 million shots, but would still be a record in a country where vaccine hesitancy remains an obstacle and there are logistical hurdles to reach people in the sprawling archipelago. Three million vaccinations per day is nearly four times the average of 829,000 daily shots in November.
