Leaders from the “Big Four” cruise companies are generally optimistic about their lines sailing from U.S. ports later this year, despite the “No Sail Order” being recently extended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through October 31, That was the big “takeaway” Tuesday from the Seatrade Cruise Virtual conference. 

“We are optimistic that we’ll be in a position as an industry, in collaboration with CDC … in collaboration with the [Trump] Administration to resume cruising sometime this year, but we have to work that out,” said Arnold Donald, president and CEO, Carnival Corporation (CCL). “But we are definitely cautiously optimistic.”

Later in the program, panelists were asked by moderator Anne Kalosh, editor, Seatrade Cruise News, to rank on a scale from 1 to 5 (with five being the most optimistic), of whether ships will sail from U.S. ports in 2020. “On a scale of

The air show in Rome will be in familiar surroundings as some team members perform for family and friends not far from their

It was the Bill and Blake Show as Delaware Valley cruises to victory

The season opener for the Delaware Valley football team could have easily been dubbed the Bill and Blake Show.

Sophomore quarterback Jack Bill threw for a pair of touchdowns, rushed for 94 yards and kicked three extra points, while junior Logan Blake outleaped any Voorhees defender near him in the end zone to snare Bill’s two TD passes and enjoyed a hard-hitting evening at linebacker.

Together with a gritty defensive effort which saw the Terriers yield just 202 yards of total offense, Del Val earned a 24-2 victory over host Voorhees on Friday evening in Glen Gardner.

“I would have been very upset if we lost this season,” Bill said. “I’m so glad for the older guys mostly that we get to play.”

“Very grateful we’re playing,” Blake said. “We haven’t forgotten how lucky we are.”

Bill, the nephew of Hunterdon Central All-State quarterback Tom Bill, completed 7 of 12

How the Show ‘Alone’ Sparked a Solo Trip and a Tough Realization

This article is part of a series on resilience in troubled times — what we can learn about it from history and personal experiences.

When I realized March wasn’t going to end like it started, I developed two obsessions. The first was drinking water out of an empty antique whiskey bottle. I liked the feel of the bottle in my hand and it stopped me from drinking actual whiskey in the middle of the day like I desperately wanted to.

The other was “Alone,” a History Channel-produced reality show in which 10 people are each left so utterly alone in the wilderness that they have to film themselves as they use their skills, knowledge and the 10 items they are allowed to bring with them to do their best to survive for as long as possible. When they want to quit, the contestants can push a “tap-out” button and be

BEIJING: Crowds packed a mega motor show in Beijing on Saturday — the only major international auto event this year — as manufacturers hope to boost the world’s biggest car market despite the coronavirus battering demand.

Delayed for five months because of the pandemic, the 10-day event opened as China has largely brought the virus outbreak under control, although travel restrictions mean most overseas executives appeared virtually to introduce their new motors.

But this did not stop a packed audience in mandatory face masks from cheering as new cars were driven on stage to be shown off.

The fact the glitzy gathering was going ahead marked “a symbol of hope” in the

A federal judge has given the Trump administration until Sept. 28 to stop the practice of holding immigrant children in hotels for prolonged periods under a secretive policy that rapidly expels undocumented immigrants who arrive at the border amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee denied on Monday the Trump administration’s request to put on hold her original Sept. 4 order to end the practice while an appeal is pending.

The Trump administration has been holding hundreds, and possibly thousands, of immigrant children in hotels in Phoenix and several other cities under emergency pandemic measures implemented in March to quickly expel undocumented immigrants, including children. In the past, immigrant children were transferred to
