* Graphic: World FX rates in 2020 https://tmsnrt.rs/2RBWI5E * Report of new lockdowns in France hurts euro * Investors grow nervous before U.S. elections * Aussie in focus amid expectations for monetary easing By Stanley White TOKYO, Oct 28 (Reuters) - The euro fell against the dollar on Wednesday after a media report that France's government is leaning toward reinstating a national lockdown to curb a resurgence in coronavirus infections. The dollar strengthened slightly against other major currencies, but sentiment for the greenback is turning bearish due to uncertainty about the outcome of the U.S. presidential election next week. Traders are bracing for more volatile trade in currency markets because the coronavirus is spreading rapidly again in Europe, Britain, and the United States, which threatens economic growth.

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Latest on Game 6 of the World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays (all times local):7:35 p.m.Randy Arozarena extended his post-season record with his 10th home run and Blake Snell struck out the side as the Tampa Bay Rays took a 1-0 lead after the first inning in Game 6 of the World Series, when a win by the Los Angeles Dodgers would give them their first title since 1988.It was Arozarena’s third homer in the World Series, the first time a rookie has hit three in the Series since Charlie Keller did it for the New York Yankees in 1939. Arozarena became the first rookie to drive in a run in four consecutive Series games.Arozarena went the opposite way in the top of the first, homering to right off rookie right-hander Tony Gonsolin with one out. Austin Meadows then hit a hard single and Brandon Lowe, who homered off Gonsolin in Game 2, walked before Manuel Margot had a flyout and Joey Wendle struck out.Snell, the 2018 AL Cy Young Award winner, struck out Mookie Betts, Corey Seager and Justin Turner. The lefty struck out nine in 4 2/3 innings as the Rays won Game 2, when he didn’t allow a hit in that game until the fifth.The Dodgers went in with hopes of getting five or six innings out of Gonsolin. He was in an opener role and pitched only 1 1/3 innings in Game 2.Gonsolin needed 25 pitches to get through the first inning, and the Dodgers had Alex Wood warming up briefly in the bullpen only five batters into the game.It was also the fifth consecutive game in this World Series when a run was scored in the top of the first inning. That had never happened before.__7:10 p.m.The Los Angeles Dodgers took a 3-2 World Series lead into Game 6 against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night, one win from their first title since 1988.The Dodgers were in Brooklyn when they lost the World Series in 1916, 1920, 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952 and 1953, then finally won their first championship when Johnny Podres completed an eight-hit shutout in Game 7 in 1955 when Elston Howard grounded to Pee Wee Reese, who threw to first baseman Gil Hodges for the final out.After moving to Los Angeles following the 1957 season, the Dodgers added titles in 1959, when Larry Sherry was MVP after getting two wins and two saves, and 1963 and 1965, when Sandy Koufax went 4-1 and was twice MVP. Titles followed in 1981 and in 1988, the latter when Orel Hershiser earned the MVP by going 2-0 with a 1.00 ERA.While Tony Gonsolin started Game 6 on Tuesday night, ace Walker Buehler was lined up to start a Game 7, with Clayton Kershaw available in the bullpen after throwing 85 pitches Sunday in Game 5 for his second win of the Series.Blake Snell started Game 6 for the Rays. Charlie Morton was set to start Game 7 after allowing five runs over 4 1/3 innings in a Game 3 loss last Wednesday. Morton said he would be available in relief in Game 6 if needed. Morton, who turns 37 on Nov. 12, hopes to pitch next season but is not sure whether the Rays or any other team will want him.___5:45 p.m.The Tampa Bay Rays received some encouraging words from former President Barack Obama ahead of Game 6.Obama spoke at a rally in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday in support of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and referenced the Rays’ five-game loss to the Philadelphia Phillies 12 years ago.“I don’t know if we’ve got any Tampa Bay Rays fans here in Orlando,” Obama said. “Big game tonight. It’s do-or-die time. The last time the Rays were in the World Series in 2008, Florida sent me to the White House. The Rays fell just a bit short then, but, here in Florida, Democrats fell a little bit short in 2016 also. Over the next couple of weeks, Florida, you’ve got the chance to fix two mistakes. You’ve got the chance to set two things right. You can bring a World Series championship to the Sunshine State, and you can send Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House.”___5:20 p.m.The Tampa Bay Rays are going with the same nine players in the batting order for Game 6 against Tony Gonsolin, but shuffled the top four for their second game in this World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers rookie right-hander.First baseman Ji-Man Choi is leading off Tuesday night, followed by left fielder Randy Arozarena, designated hitter Austin Meadows and second baseman Brandon Lowe. In Game 2 last Wednesday, when the Rays won 6-4, it went Meadows, Lowe, Arozarena and Choi. The rest of the lineup is the same, right fielder Manuel Margo batting fifth, ahead of third baseman Joey Wendle, shortstop Willy Adames, centre fielder Kevin Kiermaier and catcher Mike Zunino.In the leadoff spot this season, Choi is hitting .115 (3 for 26) with one homer and four walks.Los Angeles has used the same batters in the top six spots for every game of the World Series. Right fielder Mookie Betts is leading off again, followed by shortstop Corey Seager, third baseman Justin Turner, first baseman Max Muncy, designated hitter Will Smith and centre fielder Cody Bellinger. Second baseman Chris Taylor is batting seventh, left fielder AJ Pollock eighth and catcher Austin Barnes ninth.___3:35 p.m.The Globe Life Field roof will be closed for Game 6 of the World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays.The forecast called for a game-time temperature of 42 degrees Fahrenheit (5.5 degrees Celsius) Tuesday night and a chance of rain.Major League Baseball announced the roof decision about four hours before the scheduled first pitch.The retractable roof of the new $1.2 billion ballpark was open for Games 1, 2 and 4 and closed for Games 3 and 5.Los Angeles held a three games to two lead in the Series.“We hope the roof is closed because it’s freezing,” Kiké Hernández of the Dodgers said shortly before the announcement.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsThe Associated Press

Three British Columbia firefighters who contracted COVID-19 while in California battling wildfires likely spread the virus to 13 colleagues who tested positive after returning to the province.According to B.C. Wildfire Information Officer Forrest Tower, all 16 individuals are under quarantine at a Sheraton Hotel in Richmond and one other facility in the city. None are seriously ill."I would definitely not call it an outbreak, but we do have right now 16 confirmed cases," he said. "We had three initial cases reported in the States, and since everyone has returned there's been 13 more positive tests."Tower said it's not known how the initial three became infected.A spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service told CBC the three Canadians were helping to build a fire break on the massive North Complex blaze in the Plumas National Forest when they started showing symptoms and subsequently tested positive.They were taken off the line followed by six colleagues who were deemed "probable" for COVID-19. "They had driven down and what we did was charter a plane for those nine folks and we actually flew them back north," said the USFS's Stanton Florea.According to Florea, the firefighters were returned home on Oct. 17, two days before their deployment was supposed to end. In September, the B.C. Wildfire sent 223 personnel to California in the midst of the state's worst wildfire season on record.At the time the province said officials were taking "extraordinary" precautions to protect B.C. Wildfire crews from COVID-19 infection during their deployment and when they returned home."B.C. Wildfire Service personnel will remain within their own 'bubble' and conduct their firefighting operations separately from American firefighters, as coordinated by the U.S. Forest Service and other relevant authorities," said the statement.Tower said the precautions included maintaining crew bubbles through separate meals, accommodation, showers and work assignments. Crews are commonly made up of about 20 individuals.Additionally, individuals were not to interact with the public, even on days off.He said all 16 positive individuals are now under the care of local health authorities and that contact tracing is taking place. Florea says the work done by the Canadians was crucial in helping contain the North Complex fire during a recent wind storm. "We had 30- to 50-mile-an-hour winds and the line that the crews from Canada helped construct actually held," he said. "So they did great work for us and it's very much appreciated."

It was summer 2017, and Robin McGrath was meeting his right-hand woman for the first time.McGrath said on the stand in a courtroom in St. John's Tuesday that he and the school's new vice-principal were excited to step into the helm together, being, as he put it, "the first people to go in, create the culture and environment." He spoke fondly of the promise he felt that day, of his plans for his newly-minted principalship at the Conception Bay South school.He couldn't have known, then, the trouble that lay ahead. Members of the school's staff, just months later, would accuse their principal of assaulting four students, all with disabilities. He had screamed, grabbed, pinched, threatened, and squeezed, according to their allegations. In all, he faces five charges.McGrath flatly denied all of this from the witness box.The principal painted himself, instead, as a tireless worker who refused to leave his office until well after his students were dismissed. Usually, he said, he'd return home with his lunch still in its bag, uneaten. "I lead by example," he told the court. "I always say, you can't expect out of other people what you won't do yourself."As his defence attorneys laid out the allegations against him, he shot them down one by one, at times calm and at other times nearly ranting, his voice indignant. He described staff members who gradually turned against him as the school year progressed. One, he said, had been bad-mouthing him to various staff members after he told her she likely wouldn't walk into a full-time job right away. His vice-principal, for her part, grew to disagree with him at every turn.A third, he said, outspokenly disapproved of his new relationship with a married colleague, to the point where she outright ignored him and later said she could not work with McGrath any longer.The defence has narrowed their sights on the breakdown of those relationships during their questioning this week, emphasizing the apparent workplace dysfunction that's been a running theme throughout the trial.They also gave McGrath the opportunity to describe his version of the alleged assaults.Bear hug was board-approved, McGrath saysPrevious testimony from witnesses called by the prosecution has said McGrath wrapped a student in a bear hug, squeezing him until the child cried.McGrath detailed what he says happened that day: a violent child with a disability was kicking and punching both him and another staff member. To de-escalate that, he used what he called a "CPI hold," grabbing the child's wrists from behind and crossing them across the child's chest, leaning him backward until he calmed down.He learned that, he said, in classes provided by the school board. "I did what I was trained to do," he told the court.McGrath said he did often make physical contact with children, but never inappropriately. "Sure," he said. "I'd hold their hands, especially younger kids." He compared his demeanour to the way he'd treat his own two children.Sometimes, if a student wasn't paying attention, he would move his or her chin lightly with his fingers, turning the head toward him. He'd do the same with their chairs when overwhelmed teachers brought disruptive kids to his office for discipline.Another staff member at the school, who'd known McGrath for years and had followed him from their previous school in Holyrood, echoed testimony from Monday's witnesses: McGrath spoke firmly to the children, but she never saw him behave in a way that concerned her."He spoke to them in a stern voice — to me, much like a father would speak to a child," the witness said.She, like multiple other witnesses called this week, said none of the children he'd allegedly assaulted seemed afraid of him.One witness also reported hearing vague threats from one of McGrath's accusers, who would often complain about her work schedule in her presence."She said, 'he thinks he's intimidating, but he's not intimidating me. He doesn't know who he's dealing with,'" the witness recounted hearing.Testimony ended Tuesday with the defence still in the process of questioning McGrath. Prosecution has not yet had an opportunity for cross-examination.The trial continues Wednesday.Read more from CBC Newfoundland and Labrador

The Mounties say two people have died in an early morning fire Tuesday that partially destroyed a 30-unit apartment building in Penticton, B.C. RCMP spokesman Sgt. Jason Bayda says the bodies were found after a structural engineer deemed it safe for emergency personnel to enter the ruined building and begin a search. Penticton fire Chief Larry Watkinson says early indications suggest the fire started on the building exterior and travelled up to the roof, although he cautioned the investigation is still in its infancy and has been turned over to the police due to the two deaths.
San Francisco leaders voted to crack down on so-called "Karens" who use 911 calls to discriminate against minorities. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously passed the Caution Against Racially and Exploitative Non-Emergencies, or CAREN, Act on Tuesday, which amends the city's police code and allows anyone harmed by such calls to sue. Supervisor Shamann Walton, who introduced the bill in July, said in a statement that the act should make residents think twice before calling the police on their Black or minority neighbors over a non-emergency.
(Bloomberg) -- Callaway Golf Co. plans to buy the remainder of driving-range chain Topgolf Entertainment Group, providing the golf-club giant with a new source of growth.The deal values closely held Topgolf at about $2 billion, the companies said in a statement after Tuesday’s market close. Callaway, the maker of Big Bertha drivers and other equipment, already owns 14% of Topgolf. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier Tuesday that the acquisition was in the works.Topgolf driving ranges -- which feature food, drinks and electronic games -- are seen as a way to bring younger players to golf, which has suffered from aging demographics and the closing of hundreds of courses in recent years. They also have held up during the pandemic because golfers can practice their swing while remaining socially distant.With the merger, Callaway hopes to acquire new customers and add a stronger digital component to golfing, Chief Executive Officer Chip Brewer said in an interview.“We have thoughts about being the Peloton of golf,” Brewer said. He added that the company could offer more microtransactions in the future, charging for personalized golf content.The companies said they expect pro forma revenue of about $2.8 billion and see it growing to $3.2 billion by 2022, projecting 10% annual growth thereafter. They predict that the deal will close early next year.Callaway shares closed down 3.1% after briefly climbing as much as 8.9%. They’re down 9% this year through Tuesday’s close.Callaway, located in Carlsbad, California, first invested in Dallas-based Topgolf in 2006.Topgolf CEO Dolf Berle, meanwhile, plans to leave the company to start his own business after the transition period, he said in an interview.(Updates with executive comments starting in third paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
Teachers across Nova Scotia have voted to keep Paul Wozney as their president.An electronic vote was held Tuesday, where 9,300 members of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union had the chance to cast a ballot for their preferred candidate. "I'm very grateful, but most of all, I'm humbled," said Wozney, a former Bedford high school teacher who was first elected in May 2018."The vote's done, the results are in, and now it's time to get to work."Wozney received 81 per cent of the vote Tuesday, defeating Shelburne County teacher Colleen Scott. A total of 5,963 union members — about 63 per cent of the membership — voted.Wozney's two-year term will begin Feb. 21, 2021 because of COVID-19, the union said in a news release.He holds the job in a difficult time, as teachers grapple with the challenges of educating amid the pandemic.When he was first elected in 2018, Wozney said the union had to re-establish its credibility as "an advocate for education." He said he hoped to bring in more meaningful dialogue and collaboration with the province.A battle over whether schools were safe and ready to open on time in September was the latest in a number of recent faceoffs with the provincial government.Earlier this month, the union announced it could once again accept school psychologists, speech language pathologists and other specialists as its members after pressing the issue for two years.In 2016, teachers brought in work-to-rule job action as a way of protesting Bill 75, a controversial piece of legislation that imposed a contract on Nova Scotia teachers. It eventually passed in February 2017, leading to the first strike by public school teachers in Nova Scotia history.In recent days, the union reached a tentative agreement with the province for a new contract. The previous deal expired July 31, 2019. The union has declined to speak about the tentative agreement until a ratification vote is held at a future date.MORE TOP STORIES
