Cruise Line Faces Negligence Lawsuits After 200 Get Coronavirus

first_imgA South Florida lawyer has filed COVID-19 negligence lawsuits on behalf of 16 families against a subsidiary of Carnival Cruise Lines.Debi Chalik, an attorney and founding partner of Chalik and Chalik Law Firm, made the complaints last week against Princess Cruises, which Carnival operates.“Princess Cruises has shown an utter disregard for the safety of its passengers and crew members,” the lawsuit states.According to Chalik, the Diamond Princess was quarantined off the coast of Japan with about 700 cases of COVID-19 in early February.Meanwhile, the Grand Princess departed from the west coast of the United States on February 21, and docked on March 5 in Oakland. That ship had 100 confirmed cases of the virus.Chalik’s plaintiffs were shuttled to military bases in California, Georgia, and Texas. Despite the fact that the passengers had arrived from an infected ship, none of them were tested for the virus upon arrival.She adds that the cruise line knowingly had nearly 200 passengers and crew members who were showing symptoms, and the company did nothing about it.Read the lawsuit here:last_img read more

India vs England: We can still save the Test match, saya leg-spinner Amit Mishra

first_imgOdds are stacked against them as they trail by a massive 451-run margin but Indian spinner Amit Mishra feels that his side has the character and skills to save the third Test match.Riding on Alastair Cook’s 294-run knock, England scored a massive 710 for seven in reply to India’s first innings of 224 all out and threw a strong challenge before the visitors to save the match, series and number one status.”I am positive we can do it. We have done it before as well. We have good batters and it’s a good pitch to bat on. I don’t think we would lose this Test,” opined Mishra, who took three wickets for 150 runs, from 43 overs.The little leg-spinner did concede that the wicket was offering spin but said it doesn’t have the bounce.Mishra had great words of praise to speak about England opener Cook, who made a near triple century.”He showed a lot of patience. We bowled well to him but he batted with determination and did very well for himself and his team. It isn’t as if he has been the most patient batsman I’ve every bowled to. But he batted really well, according to the wicket and conditions.”Mishra bowled no less than nine no-balls during his stint in England’s first innings though today he overstepped only once.”The wicket was very slow and so I was trying a bit harder which led to those no-balls being bowled. But I’ve learnt my lessons and today’s performance was much better.”advertisementThe lone spinner in India’s eleven in this match said he had all along believed England would be a force to reckon with in familiar conditions.”We were aware they are familiar to their conditions.They’ve exploited it to the hilt.”- With PTI inputslast_img read more

Lego Sport Champions, Spurs v Chelsea and the story of Bodacious

All of which is more than enough excuse to enjoy the consensus greatest match ever played, the 2013 Grand Slam final between Phil Taylor and Adrian Lewis; the consensus greatest leg ever played, between Michael van Gerwen and Gary Anderson in the 2018 Premier League; and this astounding tussle between Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld at the 2015-16 Worlds.

The teams first met there in 1967 when they contested the FA Cup final – a match that Spurs won 2-1, as they did the 2008 League Cup final. As for White Hart Lane encounters, in April 1975, Spurs won a relegation battle that helped them survive and Chelsea go down, a development which prompted spirited, on-pitch discussions between supporters of both sides; and for balance, here are two wins for Chelsea, 4-1 in September 1989 and 3-1 in August 1991.3) Wolves are going well in the Premier League now, but in 1985, the team were in the process of finishing bottom of the old Division Two.
