A look at what’s happening around the Champions League on Wednesday:GROUP EChelsea, with back-to-back 0-0 draws against Sevilla in the Champions League and Manchester United in the Premier League, is showing the team can have some solidity at the back under Frank Lampard after criticism of his defensive record. Now the English team will look to get its attack firing in a trip to Krasnodar, which will have some fans in attendance for its first home game in the group stage of the Champions League. The Russian team opened the group with a 1-1 draw at Rennes. In the other match, Sevilla will try to end a four-match winless streak in all competitions when it hosts Rennes. The Europa League champions have had two straight losses in the Spanish league.GROUP FBorussia Dortmund and Zenit St. Petersburg are both under pressure as they play in Germany after losing their first games. A 3-1 defeat to Lazio showed how Dortmund matches exciting attacking play with a brittle defence. Manuel Akanji returned with a goal in Dortmund's 3-0 win over Schalke on Saturday after spending time in isolation following a positive coronavirus test, but Emre Can is out after a positive test on Friday. Zenit needs to bounce back from a loss to Club Brugge last week. No fans will be allowed at Brugge's stadium following a decision by the Belgian government to reinforce anti-coronavirus measures. After missing the trip to Zenit due to the virus, Simon Mignolet, Michael Krmencik and Odilon Kossounou have all tested negative and can play for the Belgian champions.GROUP GThe highly anticipated matchup of Cristiano Ronaldo against Lionel Messi is unlikely to happen as Ronaldo has reportedly not recovered from the coronavirus in time. Juventus refused to comment but Italian media reports that Ronaldo's latest test was still positive for COVID-19 on the eve of his side's match against Barcelona. Álvaro Morata replaced Ronaldo against Dynamo Kyiv last week and scored twice in a 2-0 win. Barcelona got off to a good start by beating Ferencvaros 5-1 but coach Ronald Koeman is under pressure again after the team lost at home to Real Madrid in the Spanish league Saturday. Koeman will be without playmaker Philippe Coutinho because of an injury. Ferencvaros hosts Dynamo in the other match, with both teams looking for their first wins in the competition.GROUP HParis Saint-Germain, last season's beaten finalist, is under early pressure in its latest bid for an elusive Champions League title. The French club lost at home to Manchester United 2-1 in the opening round and cannot afford to drop points against competition newcomer Istanbul Basaksehir ahead of an upcoming double-header against Leipzig and with a trip to Old Trafford still to come. PSG has key players out injured and Neymar is having a lean spell, too, having drawn a blank in his last four games in Europe. Leipzig is keen to show its run to last season's semifinals, where it lost to PSG, was no fluke by qualifying from a tough group. Julian Nagelsmann's team remains unbeaten in all competitions ahead of the game at United and tops the Bundesliga.___More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsThe Associated Press
Nathaniel Martin is sporting a new and somewhat unique look as he goes about his day-to-day routines in Kamloops. His fashion sense was crafted by his six-year-old daughter, Abrielle, who trimmed his hair on Oct. 10 — in an attempt to raise money for and awareness of domestic-violence and mental-health programs. When the country went into pandemic lockdown mode earlier this year, Martin became concerned about what that might mean for people’s mental health. And, as restrictions continued through the summer and fall, he began to notice medical journals taking note of similar concerns. “When the numbers come in and you see that there’s going to be an increase in overdose deaths, an increase in domestic violence, suicides, I really hope it’s all worth it, the way we’re doing it,” he said. Martin is quick to note he does believe in the danger of the novel coronavirus and does agree with wearing a mask and staying home and adhering to safety protocols as much as possible. But he also acknowledges that those with many local organizations are working harder with less money because of the pandemic. Because of that, Martin is raising money for those organizations through a few different campaigns. The first is a GoFundMe endeavour online at ca.gofundme.com/f/cutober-2020, which runs until the end of October. It sees him sporting his new hairdo for one minute for every dollar raised. The haircut has also helped raise awareness about the importance of the organizations as, Martin explained, it can be quite the conversation starter. He has also organized a fundraiser through Highland Valley Copper, where he works, with money there taken as a payroll deduction from staff and donated to the Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre and the Canadian Mental Health Association. Martin is expecting to raise somewhere in the area of $1,000 from each of the two campaigns. Martin is no stranger to helping his community. Following CUTober, he’ll be helping with a pumpkin disposal drive in Sahali, in which volunteers will collect and dispose of pumpkins on Sunday, Nov. 1, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. He is also hoping he can get more men involved with CUTober in the years to come. “I would love it if I could find some dads that would love to get their haircuts done by their children,” he said. “It would be a great Kamloops initiative.”Todd Sullivan, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, Kamloops This Week

The latest news on COVID-19 developments in Canada (all times Eastern): 8:15 p.m. As of Oct. 26, federal Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller says there were 362 active cases of COVID-10 in First Nations communities — the highest active case number since the pandemic began in mid-March. In addition, he says there are currently 28 cases among Inuit in Nunavik, Quebec. Since the start of the pandemic, Miller says there have been a total of 1,254 cases of COVID-19 in Indigenous communities and 50 deaths. 6:50 p.m. B.C. is reporting 217 new cases of COVID-19 for a total of 2,322 active infections in the province. The number of people in hospital has ticked up to 84, but no one else has died after contracting the illness. More than 5,100 people are now under public health surveillance after exposure to a known case. Infections have been detected at Fellburn Care Centre and St. Michael's Centre in Burnaby, meaning outbreaks are ongoing at 21 assisted-living or long-term care homes and two acute-care facilities. In a statement, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry repeated her expectation that masks are worn in indoor public spaces, including shopping malls, grocery stores, community centres and health-care facilities. She says public spaces indoors are different from schools, offices and businesses that have established learning groups and work cohorts supported by comprehensive COVID-19 safety plans. --- 5:30 p.m. Canada has reached another grim milestone in the COVID-19 pandemic, surpassing 10,000 deaths connected to the novel coronavirus. Alberta reported another two deaths from COVID-19 today to bring the national tally to 10,001. Canada crossed the threshold of 5,000 deaths on May 12, a little over two months after the first death was reported. --- 2:30 p.m. Quebec Premier Francois Legault says his government plans to adopt a decree on Wednesday that will subject gym owners and their patrons to fines should they flout public health orders. On Monday, a coalition claiming to represent more than 200 fitness-related centres called on the province to allow them to reopen. Some threatened to reopen Thursday in violation of Legault’s order. The premier said Monday that gyms, bars and entertainment venues in the province’s biggest cities will remain closed until Nov. 23 to reduce COVID-19 transmission. --- 2 p.m. Manitoba has tallied its highest daily number of COVID-19 cases since the pandemic began. Health officials reported 184 new infections on Tuesday and three more deaths. The latest victims include a woman in her 60s connected to an ongoing outbreak at the Parkview Place long-term care home in Winnipeg, and a man and a woman, both in their 80s, connected to an outbreak at St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg. The death at Parkview Place is the 19th linked to the care home, where dozens of staff and residents have tested positive for COVID-19. Outbreaks have been declared on three separate wards at St. Boniface Hospital, where 22 patients and nine staff had tested positive for the virus as of Monday. Manitoba has had a total of 4,532 cases and 58 deaths. Some 2,238 cases are active. --- 12:15 p.m. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is acknowledging that the COVID-19 pandemic, in his words, "really sucks." He says his six-year-old son asked him recently whether COVID-19 is forever. Staying apart, telling children they can't trick-or-treat, accepting restrictions that harm business, and giving up on gatherings are all incredibly difficult. Trudeau says the pandemic is a chance to show who Canadians really are — people who sacrifice for each other. And he says a vaccine is coming, and so are a spring and summer after the impending winter. No person, institution or government is perfect, but Trudeau says everyone has to do their best to protect everyone else. --- 12:20 p.m. Health officials in New Brunswick are reporting three new cases of COVID-19, bringing the number of active cases in the province to 55. The cases are in the Campbellton region and involve two people between 50 and 59 years of age and one person between 80 and 89. Public Health says two of the cases were identified as a result of mass testing on Sunday of 1,135 people in Dalhousie. New Brunswick has had 334 confirmed cases, with 273 people having recovered, and there have been six deaths. --- 12 p.m. Dr. Howard Njoo says we know a lot more now than we did last spring about how to contain the spread of COVID-19 but the challenge is to do those things. He says it's clear that gatherings over the Thanksgiving weekend are contributing to the current increases in sickness. During the first wave of the pandemic, the unknowns made it hard to be sure how to protect ourselves. Canada's deputy chief public health officer says we now know that physical distancing, staying out of crowded indoor places and practising good hygiene are critical. Njoo says if we don't do those things, the virus that causes COVID-19 spreads and puts vulnerable people at risk. --- 11:50 a.m. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada's COVID Alert app is up to 4.8 million downloads. But, he says, Canada is notching record numbers of new COVID-19 cases, and each victim is important. So Trudeau says more people need to download the app and take basic precautions like wearing face masks and reducing their contacts with others. --- 11:15 a.m. Ontario is reporting 827 new cases of COVID-19 today, and four new deaths due to the virus. Health Minister Christine Elliott says 355 cases are in Toronto, 169 in Peel Region, 89 in York Region and 58 in Ottawa. The province has conducted 23,945 tests since the last daily report, with an additional 22,636 being processed. In total, 312 people are hospitalized in Ontario due to COVID-19, including 75 in intensive care. --- 11:10 a.m. Quebec is reporting 963 new cases of COVID-19 and 19 more deaths linked to the novel coronavirus. The Health Department said today four of the deaths were reported in the past 24 hours, 14 date back to last week and one death was from an unknown date. The number of patients in hospital declined by 16 to 527 while the number of intensive-care patients dropped by two to 91. Quebec has reported a total of 101,885 COVID-19 cases and 6,172 deaths linked to the virus since the beginning of the pandemic. --- 10:55 a.m. Nova Scotia is reporting one new case of COVID-19. Health officials say the case is in the central health zone, which includes Halifax, and is related to travel outside the Atlantic region. The province has six active cases of novel coronavirus. In total, Nova Scotia has confirmed 1,102 cases, while 1,031 cases have been resolved and there have been 65 deaths. --- This report by The Canadian Press was first published Oct. 27, 2020.

NEW YORK — Disgraced self-improvement guru Keith Raniere, whose NXIVM followers included millionaires and Hollywood actors, was sentenced to 120 years on Tuesday for turning some adherents into sex slaves branded with his initials and sexually abusing a 15-year-old. U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis called Raniere “ruthless and unyielding” in crimes that were “particularly egregious” because he targeted girls and young women in the sex-trafficking conspiracy that resulted in Raniere's conviction last year. He handed down the unusually stiff sentence in Brooklyn federal court after hearing 15 victims call for a long prison term to reflect the nightmares and anguish they'll confront the rest of their lives. As he announced the sentence, Garaufis noted that Raniere labeled some of the victims' claims lies. The judge told a woman who Raniere ordered to be kept in a room for two years when she was 18: “What happened to you is not your fault." He said that went for the other victims too. Raniere, who looked at victims as they spoke in the courtroom, maintained his defiant tone, although he said he was “truly sorry” that his organization led to a place where “there is so much anger and so much pain." “I do believe I am innocent of the charges. ... It is true I am not remorseful of the crimes I do not believe I committed at all," Raniere said. Prosecutors had sought life in prison, while a defence lawyer told the judge Raniere should face 20 years behind bars. The sentencing was the culmination of several years of revelations about Raniere’s program, NXIVM, which charged thousands of dollars for invitation-only self-improvement courses at its headquarters near Albany, New York, along with branches in Mexico and Canada. Adherents endured humiliation and pledged obedience to Raniere as part of his teachings. NXIVM has been the subject of two TV documentary series this year, HBO’s “The Vow,” and the Starz series “Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult.” Prosecutors said Raniere, 60, led what amounted to a criminal enterprise, inducing shame and guilt to influence and control co-conspirators who helped recruit and groom sexual partners for him. Raniere was convicted on charges including racketeering, alien smuggling, sex trafficking, extortion and obstruction of justice. After victims spoke for 2 1/2 hours, the judge grew impatient and a bit angry when defence lawyer Marc Agnifilo sought to portray his client's organization as “doing good” for women before things turned bad for some. “I've heard enough about Mr. Raniere's theories," Garaufis snapped. The judge said Raniere groomed a 13-year-old girl so that “two years later he's having sex with a 15-year-old girl." At another point, he cut Agnifilo off as the lawyer tried to argue victims were not always factually correct. “You're starting to tire me out here," the judge said. “It's pretty clear he took advantage of people sexually." Earlier, India Oxenberg, the daughter of “Dynasty” actor Catherine Oxenberg, called Raniere an “entitled little princess” and a sexual predator and lamented that she “may have to spend the rest of my life with Keith Raneire’s initials seared into me.” Another victim said she had the initials removed from her body by a plastic surgeon. Other victims labeled him a liar, a parasite, a terrorist, a sociopath, a racist, a sadist and “a toddler with too much power and zero accountability." And the woman who was sexually abused beginning at age 15 said Raniere groomed her by telling her she was mature for her age. “It is false. I was a child," she said. She said that when Raniere saw blood running down her arm after a botched suicide attempt, he revealed his self-obsessed attitude, asking her: “Do you know how bad that could have been for me if you killed yourself?” The likelihood of leniency had seemed to dissipate with the recent sentencing of Clare Bronfman, 41, an heir to the Seagram’s liquor fortune, for her role in NXIVM, which has been described by some ex-members as a cult. Bronfman was sentenced to nearly seven years in prison. Prosecutors had only sought five years. Ex-followers told the judge that Bronfman for years had used her wealth to try to silence NXIVM defectors. Reniere’s followers called him “Vanguard.” To honour him, the group formed a secret sorority comprised of female “slaves” who were branded with his initials and ordered to have sex with him, the prosecutors said. Women were also pressured into giving up embarrassing information about themselves that could be used against them if they left the group. Along with Bronfman, Raniere’s teachings won him the devotion of Hollywood actors, including Allison Mack of TV’s “Smallville.” Mack also has pleaded guilty to charges in the case and is awaiting sentencing. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tanya Hajjar told the judge only a life sentence would protect the public because Raniere otherwise “would be committing crimes today, tomorrow and in the future." Outside court afterward, Barbara Boucher, who described herself as the first whistleblower of Raniere's scam when she left the group 11 years ago, said the sentencing left her “enormously relieved." “I loved Keith for many years. I really thought he was my soulmate," said Boucher, who recalled her role in helping to build the organization when she first viewed it as a kind of Camelot where people could be empowered to be more loving and compassionate and live better lives. “A lot of people today in this room will carry their wounds with them for life. You don't recover fully from something like this. It's deep," she said. Still, the once-successful financial planner sees a future. “This is a 20-year book and this is the last chapter of the book and when I leave here today, that book is closing," Boucher said.
