All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving is being traded by the Brooklyn Nets. The team has struck a deal with the Dallas Mavericks. That's according to a person with knowledge of the situation who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither team had announced the move. The Mavericks will trade Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith and a package of draft picks to the Nets. The blockbuster trade ends Irving's pairing with Kevin Durant before it ever had much of a chance to click. Dallas also gets Markieff Morris in the deal.

The managers of an Iowa amusement park say they will never reopen a ride where an 11-year-old boy was killed. Adventureland's general manager announced the decision in a letter posted on the park's website Friday. He said the park spent months reviewing the safety of the Raging River ride. The company that bought the park in the wake of Michael Jaramillo's death decided it would be best to focus on other park enhancements. Jaramillo's bother and father were also injured on July 3, 2021 when the family's raft overturned and trapped them in the water. The family's lawsuit against Adventureland's former owners remains pending in court.

Nine people have died in avalanches in Austria and Italy over the weekend as heavy snow and school holidays drew skiers into the Alps.

In Oetztal a 32-year-old Chinese skier died, while in Zillertal a 17-year old male from New Zealand was buried and in Kleinwalsertal a 55-year-old German man missing since Friday was found dead. More than a dozen avalanches were reported in the Tirol region of Austria alone and authorities had set the warning level at four on a scale of five and urged caution.

Ski racers Mikaela Shiffrin, Travis Ganong and the rest of the U.S. team will wear a race suit that brings awareness to climate change when they compete at the world championships in France. The mostly blue-and-white suit was designed in collaboration with apparel sponsor Kappa and the nonprofit organization Protect Our Winters. It features a design that depicts ice chunks floating in the ocean. The concept was based on a satellite photo of icebergs breaking due to high temperatures. The world championships start Monday with a women’s combined race and run through Feb. 19.

Soup joumou, known as “independence soup”, is a cultural staple in Haiti. It's made of all local ingredients – pumpkin, beef, carrots and cabbage – and in 2021 was added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage List. It was once eaten by French slave owners, but was claimed by Haitians after they staged one of biggest and most successful slave rebellions in 1804, gaining independence before much of the region. Today, it’s one of the few points of enduring national pride at a time of deepening crisis in the Caribbean nation.
