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

Oct 10 (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.

Justin Hanna got on the microphone like he’s done countless times before Thursday to welcome passengers to Houston. But for the flight attendant, the announcement was one he dreaded.

Hanna let the passengers know this was his final flight.

“I actually just turned my things in for the last time,” Hanna explained. “I turned my ID badge in. I turned in my work phone.”

On Thursday, 32,000 United and American employees were fired, or furloughed, after federal dollars ended. In Houston, United estimated about 1,300 would lose their jobs last month. They say the number is actually lower because of a pilot agreement. The airlines said jobs could come back, but it would require federal

Disneyland Resort Final Walt Disney Co. Property To Reopen

ANAHEIM, CA — Hong Kong Disney re-opened to the public Friday, making Disneyland Resort the last in the Walt Disney Company’s resorts to re-open. Disneyland Resort—including Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, the Grand Californian Resort and Spa, Paradise Pier Hotel, and the Disneyland Resort Hotel —await word from Gov. Gavin Newsom for a re-opening strategy, Friday.

Harbor Boulevard is dark, with many restaurants and shops closed to the public. There is no reason to be open with no visitors to serve, according to the City of Anaheim’s Chief Communications Officer, Mike Lyster. He discussed the lack of a guideline for theme park re-openings and the need for an economic recovery roadmap with Patch.

Seven months have passed since the coronavirus pandemic broke out in March. The city of Anaheim was hit hard in specific neighborhoods, early in the coronavirus pandemic, Lyster says. Coronavirus infected nearly 9,000 residents. Positive infections have slowed

PUNTA CANA, Dominican Republic (AP) Tyler McCumber was the only player to reach 8-under par Thursday in the Caribbean breeze until he dropped a shot on his 17th hole and fell into a four-way for the lead in the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship.
