Airline Passenger Banned for Life After Vaping On Flight

first_imgA 30-year-old Spirit Airlines passenger from Florida has been banned for life by the airline, after officials say he decided to take a smoke break in the air.A flight attendant on Flight NK 985, which was headed from Detroit to New Orleans, told a deputy last week that she saw the passenger take a drag from an e-cigarette and exhale into a bag, said Jefferson Parish, Louisiana Sheriff’s spokesman Captain Jason Rivarde.When the flight attendant told the man to stop, the St. Petersburg man went to the restroom and continued to vape, causing the plane’s smoke alarm to go off.A deputy met the plane at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, where the passenger denied smoking and told the deputy he was unaware that smoking was prohibited on flights.Although he was not arrested, the deputy’s report says the man is now banned from Spirit Airlines for life.According to Rivarde, “It’s a private business that can ban customers at their own leisure. It’s like telling you not to come back to the restaurant. Once he was on the ground, he was cooperative with our deputies so he didn’t face any criminal charges.”Another passenger reportedly told the flight attendant that the man who was banned had also been drinking from alcohol bottles he brought on board, which is also prohibited, according to the sheriff’s office.last_img read more

Trump announces new sanctions on Iran as tensions continue to escalate

Steve Smith not lone option for Test captaincy: Tim Paine

first_imgSydney: Australias Test skipper Tim Paine isnt getting any younger at 35, but the captain has made it clear that former skipper Steve Smith isnt the only guy in fray to take over when the wicket-keeper calls it a day. The Sandpaper Gate fiasco in 2018 saw Paine take over as Australia skipper.”We’ve got a number of guys to choose from who can put their hand up. There’s Steve Smith, who’s done it before, or the people who are developing underneath like a Travis Head or an Alex Carey — Marnus Labuschagne and Pat Cummins are other ones.”We’re starting to build some real depth so that when my time’s up we’ve got a number of options,” Paine told reporters.Smith is free to captain the national team again after his captaincy ban came to an end on Sunday. This would be of little significance however with no cricket coming up in Australia, or anywhere in the world, due to the coronavirus pandemic.Smith’s captaincy ban was imposed by Cricket Australia in the calamitous aftermath of the 2018 Sandpaper Gate fiasco in which he had admitted that he had allowed opener Cameron Bancroft to use sandpaper to manipulate the conditions of the ball during their third Test against South Africa in Cape Town.It led to Smith being stripped of captaincy and David Warner being sacked as vice captain. Bancroft received a nine-month ban from international and domestic cricket while Smith and Warner got one-year bans. Both Smith and Warner have since made successful comebacks to the national side.

Very pessimistic about a normal resumption of tennis, says Rafael Nadal

first_imgMadrid: World No. 2 Rafael Nadal is “very pessimistic” over the normal resumption of the professional tennis circuit which has come to a grinding halt due to the coronavirus pandemic.“From my point of view, I’m very pessimistic that the circuit can resume a normal activity,” Nadal said in a virtual chat organised by the Spanish Federation of Tennis (RFET).“In tennis, you need to travel every week, stay in hotels, go to different countries. Even if it we play without an audience, to organise any event you need a lot of people involved, which cannot be ignored. At an international level I see a serious problem,” he added.All professional tennis activities remain suspended till July 13 due to coronavirus outbreak which has so far claimed more than 2 lakh lives across the world.The Spaniard also said that the world has been facing a very tough time since last few months.“We have had a very tough month and a half, with many irreparable losses as well as others that are less important that will still bring great suffering to society, I hope only for a few months, at the economic level,” said Nadal.“Many people are going to lose their jobs. These are sad moments when you see so many people dying,” he added.Meanwhile, Nadal’s academy in Mallorca is planning to reach out to other professional players in the WTA and ATP circuit amid the coronavirus pandemic that has frozen tennis action around the world.Several players and coaches have expressed worries about how most players ranked before the top 100 or even the top 50 of the world rankings will be able to sustain their careers with no matches or tournaments.

CSA wants protocol to be respected after Smith backs Ganguly for ICC job

first_imgJohannesburg: A few hours after Cricket South Africa (CSA) Director of Cricket Graeme Smith backed Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly for taking over as Chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC), CSA President Chris Nenzani said that the board will take a decision of which candidate to back “in terms of its own protocol.” “We must respect both the ICC protocol and our own protocol in deciding which candidate to back. There have been no candidates nominated as yet and once such nominations have been made the board of CSA will take its decision in terms of its own protocol and give the chairman the mandate to exercise his vote as an ICC Board Director accordingly,” Nenzani said in an official statement. “We have the highest regard for the opinions of our Director of Cricket, Graeme Smith, who is a well-respected figure in world cricket and has already made an immense contribution in fulfilling his mandate to make our cricket team world leaders again. At the moment we don’t want to anticipate any candidates who may be nominated for this important position to lead the game we all love,” he added. Smith had earlier said that it would be “great to see a cricket man like” Ganguly helming the ICC. “I think that will be good for the game; I think it will be good for the modern game as well. He understands it, he has played it at the highest level, he is respected, and his leadership will be key to us going forward,” the former South Africa skipper said. CSA Chief Executive Jacques Faul also hinted at backing Smith’s endorsement. “I think India must play a leadership role when it comes to the Future Tours Programme and a responsible one,” he said. “Our engagement with Sourav has been very positive in his willingness to help us. We have also checked this with the leadership of CSA. We would support an Indian candidate at this stage. But we have also got to maybe look at the integrity of the whole process. “I don’t think there are any nominations out there of any candidates that I know of, so they are still in the process, but from a CSA point of view, we have no problem supporting any Indian candidate. But to be fair, we’ve got to look at who has been nominated and bring it back to our board and get a mandate for it.” IANS Also watch: Tough times for Beauty Care & Wellness industry of Assamlast_img read more

Morgan can be a great ally to Karthik, feels KKR mentor David Hussey

first_imgKOLKATA: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) chief mentor David Hussey on Sunday hoped England’s World Cup winning captain Eoin Morgan will be a great ally to the franchise’s skipper Dinesh Karthik and his calm demeanour can help the team win matches in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL).KKR will take on defending champions Mumbai Indians in Abu Dhabi on September 23 as per IPL fixture which was released on Sunday. The 13th edition of the cash-rich league is taking place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as it had to be moved from India due to Covid-19 pandemic. “He is a World Cup winning captain. He has captained England for a long time. Classy player. He will be a great ally for Dinesh Karthik,” former Australia and KKR batsman Hussey said during virtual media interaction from Abu Dhabi. “Maybe fielding in the ring and talking to the bowlers while our captain’s behind the stumps, keeping wickets. He is also a very cool calm and collected person so… he will be very handy in the middle order controlling things with our captain as well. “So I do expect them to have a really good relationship on and off the field. He is going to go a long way in having a cool head and winning many games for KKR during a very tight tournament,” said Hussey who has played over 300 T20 matches across franchise and international cricket and was part of the KKR team from 2008 to 2010 as a player. Morgan has been in the form of his life since leading England to the ODI World Cup win last year on home turf. The dashing southpaw was snapped up by KKR for Rs 5.25 crore at the IPL auction here last year. Hussey also praised England opener Tom Banton who was also roped in by KKR, saying he is probably a better version of Kevin Pietersen. “What a player. He takes the game on. He is probably the new or better version of Kevin Pietersen I believe. He is going to be a great pickup by KKR.” Asked if big-hitting Andre Russell could be seen batting up the order, something which the West Indian desired last season, Hussey said: “Why not? If it benefits the team and helps us win games, why not. He comes in at No 3 and bats 60 balls he might actually make a double hundred! So anything can happen with him. He is probably the heartbeat of the team. We have some well balanced players and anyone can bat anywhere.” IANS Also Watch: Honouring Retired Teachers at their Homes on Teachers Daylast_img read more
