San Diego man injured in Bali returns home on road to recovery

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A Solana Beach man is back in San Diego still recovering from a spinal cord injury that happened halfway around the world in Bali.

Anthony Galvan-Schaible’s journey happened during the pandemic and even though he’s back home, there are months of intensive rehab ahead.

Schaible went to Bali in February with plans to stay until April. Then the pandemic started and he had to stay.

In late July, Schaible was in a motorcycle accident that left him with a spinal cord injury. He required emergency surgery halfway around the world.

What Tom Cruise’s Relationship With Daughter Suri Is Like Now

Tom Cruise is one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, known for his work in countless critical and financial successes — from Jack Reacher to the Mission Impossible franchise. But at the same time, he’s also one of the most private.

Unlike many other celebrities, Cruise generally does not talk about much beyond his professional life. This has caused a great deal of speculation about his personal life, especially in regards to his daughter Suri. However, there have been a few reports in recent years that might be able to shed light on the nature of their relationship.

After being in cruise mode, KXIP lose by a ‘few inches’

Twenty-one needed from 17. Nine wickets in hand. How on earth do you manage to lose from here? “I have no answers,” offered skipper KL Rahul, after Kings XI Punjab, for the third time this IPL season, snuck their long hands deep down victory’s throat and retrieved defeat from its bowels.

Nearly everything had gone right for them yesterday in Abu Dhabi. Kolkata Knight Riders had chosen to bat on a fresh pitch, and found the ball was not coming on. Shubman Gill may seem out of place in T20, but his 47-ball 57 couldn’t really be faulted.

KKR desperately needed some acceleration, though, and it came from captain Dinesh Karthik, who blasted 58 off 29.

Atarget of 165 seemed bigger than it was given the pitch and the KKR attack. But the former had started to ease out, and the latter was blunted by Mayank Agarwal and Rahul.

International student enrollment down at UNLV, UNR

After learning she’d lose her government job in Wales due to COVID-19-related budget issues, 32-year-old Lorna Griffiths decided to realize her dream of studying abroad and pursuing a career change to become a nurse.

But amid the pandemic, making that happen wasn’t easy. Griffiths traveled to Iceland to get a student visa in time for fall semester. And despite having the correct paperwork in hand, she was stressed while traveling to the U.S. and was worried she’d be turned away.

But now she’s in Las Vegas and is enrolled in her first semester of classes at the College of Southern Nevada.

“I always wanted to actually study abroad somewhere and it came down to a choice between Australia and the United States,” Griffiths said, adding she’s happy to be in the U.S.

In Nevada and nationwide, many colleges and universities are seeing fewer international students this fall due to factors

THE BOMBAY High Court (HC) has refused to accept the spread of the coronavirus disease in the country as grounds to allow a Thailand national, engaged in a custody battle with her estranged husband, to relocate to Bangkok with her 12-year-old son.

A division bench of Justices A A Sayed and Abhay Ahuja last week passed the judgment on a plea filed by the woman, who is living in Mumbai with her minor son since she had separated from her husband in 2012.

In view of the controlled Covid-19 situation in Thailand, the petitioner had sought permission to relocate with her son to Bangkok, where her parents live.

She also sought that the child is allowed to join a school in that country and stay there until the custody petition was decided before a family court in Mumbai.

With Prices Down $200 Per Room, NYC Hotels Set for More Pain

(Bloomberg) — The Midtown Hilton has been closed since March. Same for The Edition, a brand new Times Square boutique. You can get a room at the Pierre, just don’t expect the full-suite of white-glove services that have made the hotel a Manhattan landmark since 1930.

Autumn in New York, a season so inviting that it inspired a jazz standard, is grim this year, with the city’s tourism market among the worst in the U.S. The pandemic has canceled live events like Fashion Week and the New York City Marathon, repelled business travelers and international visitors and blown gaping holes in a tourism market that generates $70 billion in economic activity in a typical year.

Things are better now than they were in March, the worst month in memory for the city’s hotel industry, but they’re still historically bad. At this point, more than 200 of New York’s

Incredible Australian destinations to visit during international travel ban

Your travel bucket list may have needed a little tweaking this year, but you don’t have to ditch it altogether – Australia has you covered. Whether you were dreaming of sipping wine at a cellar door in France’s Bordeaux or hitting the road on California’s Big Sur coastal drive, Australia has experiences that are a match, if not better, than those we traditionally travel overseas for.

Almost a third of Australians – or 5.4 million Aussies – are planning a domestic holiday within the next 12 months, proving holiday makers are committed to a local adventure. This is up 21 per cent from January, according to Finder.

Data from travel booking site Expedia show Aussies have swapped trips to Bali, Phuket and Tokyo – which were high on the list in the 2019 September school holidays – for holidays to regional Australia. And planning for the Christmas holidays is in

Rugby – Exeter cruise past Bath to reach fifth straight Premiership final

(Reuters) – Exeter Chiefs remained on course for a domestic and European double after delivering a clinical five-try display to beat Bath 35-6 in the Premiership semi-final on Saturday.

Victory sent Exeter into the Oct. 24 Twickenham showpiece where they will meet Wasps, who defeated Bristol Bears 47-24 to reach their first final in three years.

Bath enjoyed early spells of possession in the Exeter territory but the Chiefs recovered to score from their first attacking position at Sandy Park.

Lock Jonny Hill crossed the try line in the 16th minute for the hosts before captain Joe Simmonds added the extras.

Rhys Priestland slotted home two penalties in four minutes for Bath to cut the deficit down to one point, only for Exeter to turn up the intensity from the restart.

Luke Cowan-Dickie burrowed over from close range at the half-hour mark after Stuart Hogg set up the attacking platform

South Carolina football: Starter Keir Thomas possibly out


South Carolina’s Keir Thomas and the defensive line at the Aug. 19 football practice.

South Carolina football coach Will Muschamp announced this week that he won’t be discussing injuries anymore this season with the worry it might allow someone to deduce if certain players had COVID-19.

He also did away with the pregame release of a dress or travel roster. On Saturday, one USC starter was not with the team in warmups for the game against Vanderbilt.

Defensive tackle Keir Thomas was missing during those team warmups at Vanderbilt Stadium. A school spokesman said he didn’t make the trip.

Reserve defensive back Jaylin Dickerson also did not make the trip.

Linebacker Jahmar Brown, who has yet to play this season with a knee injury, was also not out with the linebackers warming up.

Thomas started in 2017 and 2018 before an infection from an ankle
