NYON, Switzerland (AP) — UEFA appointed in-house investigators Wednesday for disciplinary cases against European Super League organizers Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona. The three clubs could be banned from future Champions League or Europa League competitions and fined for refusing to renounce the project which collapsed within 48 hours of being announced last month. The nine other rebel clubs reached settlements last week to commit to UEFA competitions and pay millions of euros (dollars) in forfeits of future prize money and donations to a UEFA-run charity. The focus for inspectors will be “a potential violation of UEFA’s legal framework … in connection with the so-called ‘Super League’ project,” UEFA said. The European soccer body’s legal statutes include a section “prohibited groupings” of clubs or leagues forming without UEFA’s permission or outside its control. No timetable was given for the UEFA investigation. Disciplinary charges typically follow at least three weeks after investigators are appointed. Any UEFA sanctions could be challenged at the Court of Arbitration for Sport. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Rockets streamed out of Gaza and Israel pounded the territory with airstrikes early Wednesday as the most severe outbreak of violence since the 2014 war took on many hallmarks of that devastating 50-day conflict, with no endgame in sight. Gaza's Hamas rulers and other militant groups have fired barrages of hundreds of rockets that at times have overwhelmed Israel's missile defenses, causing air raid sirens and explosions to echo across Tel Aviv, Israel's biggest metropolitan area, and other cities. Israeli airstrikes have leveled two apartment towers in the Gaza Strip, where 2 million Palestinians have lived under a crippling Israeli-Egyptian blockade since Hamas took power in 2007. Warning shots have allowed civilians to evacuate the buildings, but the material losses will be immense. Israel faced heavy criticism over the tactic during the 2014 war. Just after daybreak Wednesday, Israel unleashed dozens of airstrikes in the course of a few minutes, targeting police and security installations, witnesses said. A wall of dark gray smoke rose over Gaza City. The Hamas-run Interior Ministry said airstrikes destroyed the central police headquarters in Gaza City, a compound with several buildings. The death toll in Gaza rose to 43 Palestinians, including 13 children and three women, according to the Health Ministry. Nearly 300 people have been wounded, including 86 children and 39 women. Six Israelis, including three women and a child, were killed by rocket fire Tuesday and early Wednesday, and dozens of people were wounded. An Associated Press journalist at a hospital in Gaza City saw five dead and seven wounded, including women, from an Israeli airstrike that hit a car in the city. Meanwhile, Gaza militants fired an anti-tank missile across the border, killing an Israeli and wounding two others, who were evacuated under fire, according to Eli Bein, head of the Magen David Adom emergency service. It was not immediately clear if they were soldiers or civilians. The Israeli military said militants have fired more 1,050 rockets since the conflict began, with 200 of them falling short and landing inside Gaza. The military said it also shot down a drone that entered Israel from Gaza. Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, said two infantry brigades were sent to the area, indicating preparations for a possible ground invasion. Samah Haboub, a mother of four in Gaza, said she was thrown across her bedroom in a “moment of horror” by an airstrike on an apartment tower next door. She and her children, aged 3 to 14, ran down the stairway of their apartment block along with other residents, many of them screaming and crying. “There is almost no safe place in Gaza," she said. The destruction of apartment towers was among several tactics used during the 2014 war that are now the subject of an investigation by the International Criminal Court into possible war crimes. Israel is not a member of the court and has rejected the probe. In a brief statement, ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said she had noted “with great concern” the escalation of violence in the region and “the possible commission of crimes under the Rome Statute” that established the court. Conricus said Israeli forces have strict rules of engagement and follow international laws on armed conflict. “We are definitely very mindful of civilian casualties in Gaza and we want to minimize them,” he said. "That’s the priority.” The latest eruption of violence began a month ago in Jerusalem, where heavy-handed police tactics during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and the threatened eviction of dozens of Palestinian families by Jewish settlers ignited protests and clashes with police. A focal point was the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, a site sacred to Jews and Muslims. Israel and Hamas have fought three wars since the Islamic militant group seized power in Gaza from rival Palestinian forces in 2007. The conflicts ended after regional and international powers convinced both sides to accept an informal truce. While the violence has been widely condemned, there is no sign that either side is willing to back down. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to expand the offensive, saying “this will take time." Still, diplomats are seeking to intervene, with Qatar, Egypt and the United Nations working to deliver a cease-fire. The U.N. Security Council also planned to hold its second closed emergency meeting in three days Wednesday on the escalating violence. Council diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity because discussions have been private, said the U.N.’s most powerful body did not issue a statement because of U.S. concerns that it could escalate tensions. The unrest in Jerusalem has spread across Israel itself, with an outbreak of communal violence in mixed Jewish-Arab communities, as Hamas has called for a full-scale Palestinian intifada, or uprising. The last such uprising also began with violence at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in 2000, and lasted more than five years. In the Israeli city of Lod, a 52-year-old man and his 16-year-old daughter were killed early Wednesday when a rocket had landed in the courtyard of their one-story home. Their car parked outside was wrecked and the interior of the house was filled by debris. The deceased were reportedly Arab citizens of Israel. Lod also saw heavy clashes after thousands of mourners joined a funeral for an Arab man who was killed the previous night, the suspect a Jewish gunman. The crowd fought with police, and set a synagogue and some 30 vehicles on fire, Israeli media reported. “An intifada erupted in Lod, you have to bring in the army,” the city’s mayor, Yair Revivo, said. Authorities have declared a state of emergency and ordered the redeployment of paramilitary border police companies from the occupied West Bank as reinforcements. In neighboring Ramle, ultra-nationalist Jewish demonstrators were filmed attacking cars belonging to Arabs. In the northern port town of Acre, protesters torched a Jewish-owned restaurant and hotel. Confrontations erupted last weekend at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which is the third-holiest site in Islam and the holiest site in Judaism. Over four days, Israeli police fired tear gas and stun grenades at Palestinians in the compound who hurled stones and chairs at the forces. At times, police fired stun grenades into the carpeted mosque. On Monday evening, Hamas began firing rockets from Gaza. From there, the escalation was rapid. In a televised address, Hamas’ exiled leader, Ismail Haniyeh, said Israel bore responsibility. “It’s the Israeli occupation that set Jerusalem on fire, and the flames reached Gaza,” he said. Hamas has not commented on Israel's claims that it has killed a number of senior militants. Militant group Islamic Jihad confirmed that three senior commanders were killed in a strike on their hideout in a Gaza City apartment building. The Israeli military on Wednesday released footage of an airstrike on what it said was the house of a “high-ranking operative" in Hamas, where weapons were stored. Earlier, the military said it struck a building where two senior members of Hamas' military intelligence wing, were present. Hamas activists tweeted that the two were killed in the strike, along with a woman and her son. Netanyahu said Israel had attacked hundreds of targets. The fiercest attack was a set of airstrikes that brought down an entire 12-story building. The building housed important Hamas offices, as well as a gym and some start-up businesses. Israel fired a series of warning shots before demolishing the building, allowing people to flee and there were no casualties. Israeli aircraft heavily damaged another Gaza City building early Wednesday. The nine-story structure housed residential apartments, medical companies and a dental clinic. A drone fired five warning rockets before the bombing. Israel said the building housed Hamas intelligence offices and the group’s command responsible for planning attacks on Israeli targets in the occupied West Bank. Fighter jets struck the building again after journalists and rescuers had gathered around. There was no immediate word on casualties. The high-rise stood 200 meters (650 feet) away from the AP bureau in Gaza City, and smoke and debris reached the office. Soon after the bombing, Hamas announced that it would resume its attacks, and fired 100 rockets at the Israeli desert town of Beersheba. Hamas said the renewed barrage was in response to the strike on the building. ___ Krauss reported from Jerusalem. Associated Press writer Karin Laub in the West Bank contributed.

GUYSBOROUGH – Remember how you always thought you’d never use advanced mathematics in real life? You were wrong. If you want to understand one of the factors that’s holding up the launch of a new public transit system in the Municipality of the District of Guysborough (MODG) and the Town of Mulgrave, you might need a passing familiarity with chaos theory; or have been paying attention to the Jurassic Park movie scene where Jeff Goldblum describes the butterfly effect to Laura Dern. Simply put, the butterfly effect explains that a small change in one system can disproportionally effect change in other systems. In this case, it is the production of semiconductors and how that impacts rural Nova Scotians’ access to food, health care, employment and education. Semiconductors are exactly what the name implies; a material that conducts currents but at the same time also acts as an insulator. What does this have to do with rural residents finally getting a public transit system? It means a lot. A three-year pilot project is about to get off the ground in eastern Nova Scotia, providing a door-to-door, booked public transit service, once a few more details can be ironed out. One of those details is the procurement and delivery of accessible vehicles for the project, Greg Sewell, director of community transportation at the Department of Transportation and Active Transit, told The Journal in an interview May 6. Since the pandemic hit North America hard in March of 2020, automakers reduced production and that has impacted their ability to ramp systems back up as markets show signs of recovery after the first and second waves of the pandemic. The problem is due to in large part to the supply of semiconductors. While the big automotive companies were taking a COVID-enforced hiatus, other industries – such as gaming and cryptocurrency mining – were vacuuming up the semiconductor supply. When we talk about automobiles being run by computers these days, we’re talking about semiconductors. They’re part of many vehicle systems including power steering, catalytic converters, dashboard displays and air bags. Without semiconductors, modern vehicles can’t be manufactured. And here is where the seemingly small butterfly flapping its wings in China or Taiwan, where most semiconductors are made, affects people in rural Nova Scotia. Here, it’s a matter of transportation – to a doctor’s appointment, a job, school or a trip to the grocery store. There just aren’t enough semiconductors to meet automotive manufacturing demand, leaving this underserved region to wait a little longer for public transit. When the public transit service does arrive, it will be funded by monies from the province – the amount has yet to be determined – and revenue from clients. Sewell said, “Fares will vary by distance to some degree.” In an area where many are known to live on low incomes, the service must fit within their limited budget to be accessible, a concern which Sewell addressed by stating, “We acknowledge that the cost of using a transit system can be a barrier for many people, especially for longer distance trips. Fare structure options are being developed for in county and out-of-county trips. We will continue to have internal discussions before we finalize the fare structure for the new service.” Discussions about creating a public transit system in MODG have been held since 2017 and, in the intervening years, a major hurdle to moving forward was finding an operator for the system. On that matter, Sewell said, “We feel that we have identified an operator but at this point there is nothing finalized.” MODG warden Vernon Pitts told The Journal, “The Municipality is not a funding partner, but it is our understanding the Province is providing funding for a three-year period which we hope it will be a good affordable option for our residents. It has to be affordable for our residents, and that means for all residents from Aulds Cove to Canso, from Canso to Country Harbour, from Country Harbour to Guysborough, from Guysborough to Upper Big Tracadie and all points in between. If it's not affordable, it won't work.” Pitts added, “And it's not a core service for our Municipality so if the Province implements it for three years, it needs to be committed for the long term. It would be a shame for them to introduce it, and then abandon the service or try to download the cost of the service directly on the residents in three years.” Lois Ann Dort, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, Guysborough Journal
LONDON (AP) — The British government has announced contentious plans to toughen election voting rules by requiring photo identification at polling stations, a move it says will protect the democratic system against electoral fraud. But opponents and civil liberties groups say the law proposed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative government could disenfranchise millions of voters, particularly the poor and members of ethnic minorities. The government’s legislative agenda for the next year, announced Tuesday, includes a plan to tighten election rules for postal and proxy voting, and to require electors in U.K. general elections to show photo ID at polling stations. At present, Northern Ireland is the only part of the U.K. that requires voters to prove their identities at polling stations. Environment Secretary George Eustice said Wednesday that the changes would “protect the integrity of our electoral system” against fraud and had “nothing to do with party interests.” But opposition Labour Party justice spokesman David Lammy said it was “a cynical and ugly attempt to rig the system to disempower the poorest and most marginalized groups.” Voter ID has been a contentious issue in several U.S. states, where Republican administrations have sought to tighten voting laws, spurred in part by baseless claims of election fraud made by former President Donald Trump. Critics accuse the British government of overstating the scale of the problem. According to research by Parliament, there was one conviction in 2017 for impersonation at polling stations, and none in 2018. The government said a “broad range” of identification documents will be accepted under the new rules, including passports, driving licenses and seniors’ public transit passes. The Electoral Commission, which oversees voting, has estimated that 7.5% of the electorate, or around 3.5 million people, lack any of those forms of identification. The Electoral Reform Society, a political pressure group, said the new law was “a colossal waste of energy and resources.” “This policy is misguided and wrong, and risks pulling up the drawbridge to people across the country,” said Jess Garland, the group’s director of policy and research. “Many of us will know someone who lacks a driving license or passport. If mandatory ID were to be rolled out nationally, it could result in tens of thousands of voters being denied a say every election.” Jill Lawless, The Associated Press
