UFC 244 video recap: Masvidal wins ‘BMF’ title by doctor’s stoppage

  UFC 244 video recap: Masvidal wins ‘BMF’ title by doctor’s stoppage Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz’s fight for the ‘BMF’ title was stopped by the doctor at the end of the third round due to a cut on Diaz’s eye.What was the high point of the fight?

Savannah Guthrie's vision is still blurry following her accident, but the "Today" co-anchor's vision is improving.

On Monday's "Today" show, Guthrie gave viewers an update on her vision after her nearly 3-year-old son Charley accidentally hit her in the eye with a toy train late last month, which caused a torn retina.

"The vision is getting better every day, but I'm still blurry," Guthrie said. "Right now it's like having one contact (lens) in and (one) out. When it first started, though, it was like a complete blur. I couldn't have seen anything."

Ottawa man, 41, sought in connection with Remembrance Day street attack

  Ottawa man, 41, sought in connection with Remembrance Day street attack Ottawa police are looking for a 41-year-old man in connection with an attack “in the 300 block of Cumberland Street” on Nov. 11 in which a man was seriously injured.  The victim’s injuries are not considered life-threatening.

Guthrie added that she's undergone about five laser treatments to help repair her retina in efforts to avoid surgery. 

The show featured guest ophthalmologist Dr. Annie Negrin, who helped explain Guthrie's condition, noting that if the tear is small enough, it can be fixed with just laser treatments. Negrin also said she expected Guthrie to be fine long term.

"You got really lucky," Negrin said after explaining the arduous process of retina surgery. 

Last week, Guthrie called in to the "Today" show to explain her absence to her colleagues.

"I got hit ... Charley threw a toy train right at my eye and it tore my retina," Guthrie revealed. She shares two children – Vale, 5, and Charley, 2 – with husband Michael Feldman.

‘This encourages patient abandonment’: Edmontonians rally against Bill 207 at Alberta legislature

  ‘This encourages patient abandonment’: Edmontonians rally against Bill 207 at Alberta legislature The bill, which has now passed first reading, was introduced in the legislature by Peace River United Conservative Party MLA Dan Williams."It's a risky and slippery slope when you talk about providing people a right to discriminate," said Sandra Azocar, executive director of Friends of Medicare.

"It happened last week, actually, and then I lost my vision in my right eye about 24 hours later and then it turned out to be kind of serious. They were afraid my retina was detached."

Guthrie was still able to make it to co-host the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade alongside Hoda Kotb.

Guthrie, who had been under doctor's orders to take it easy the but previously said she hoped to be back in action for the parade, was in her usual spot next to Kotb on the parade route Thursday morning, sporting a pair of glasses.
