Liberals don’t get it that we’re all fed up

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRe Jan. 25 letter, “Liberals can’t take Trump’s straight talk”: Kudos to Ray Weidman. He nailed it.CNN is the new Comedy Central. Don Lemon needs a reality check. I watched him once and could not stop laughing. Look at what the left said about President Trump: He’s mentally ill, physically ill, a racist, a tax evader,  he eats too much McDonald’s, on and on. It’s becoming quite humorous. Where’s the mention on these liberal networks about Apple giving $38 billion back to the United States from off-shore earnings? How about the $5 billion going to fund manufacturing in America? Nope, cannot mention that. Obama had the weakest economy in history. We all dodged a bullet that “Satan in a pantsuit” (Mr. Weidman’s words) lost. Liberals just don’t understand we, the people, are fed up.Michael P.

Fast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s win over St. Bonaventure

first_img Published on November 17, 2015 at 9:12 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (2-0) topped St. Bonaventure (1-1), 79-66, at the Carrier Dome on Tuesday night. The Orange was outrebounded 43-32 and its top rebounder fouled out with 4:27 remaining in the game, but Michael Gbinije and Tyler Lydon paced the Orange to a win in a game once in the Bonnies’ grasp.Here are three quick observations from SU’s second victory on the season.StretchLydon slowly backpedalled after hitting a 3 that stretched Syracuse’s lead to double digits for the first time all night. St. Bonaventure called a timeout with under four minutes left and the freshman stood with a wide grin as Trevor Cooney and Gbinije approached him to celebrate.With Dajuan Coleman on the bench a majority of the night, Lydon slid into the middle of the 2-3 zone. He struggled on the glass at times, but made up for it on the offensive end with 13 points, including two late 3s that helped bury SBU.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLydon continued to showcase his versatility for a team both thin down low and offensively challenged – according to head coach Jim Boeheim – and helped SU avoid a nonconference scare.On the glassIn the first half, Tyler Roberson had more rebounds than the rest of Syracuse combined. On one sequence, he grabbed a defensive board while being nudged in the back, snatched the ball out of a scramble on the other end and hauled in an offensive board before drawing a foul.Coleman only played six minutes in the first half and Lydon struggled on the defensive end at center. Roberson shouldered the bulk of the load on the glass while SU was outrebounded in the first half.But with 7:36 remaining in the game, Roberson was called for his fourth foul. He stayed in the game and fouled out with 4:27 left. But even without its best rebounder on the night – Roberson finished with 12 – SU was able to compensate down low as it pulled away.Like MikeWith 52.7 seconds left in the first half, Gbinije picked up his third foul on a blocking call. Jim Boeheim instructed him to “stop the ball” and the point guard headed to the bench as SU closed out the half down six.He started the second frame and after the visitors’ student section erupted on a St. Bonaventure 3, Gbinije hit a wide-open 3 and slammed home a Malachi Richardson airball to bring the Orange within three at the 13-minute mark.He paced the Orange to the finish, not picking up another foul along the way, and rounded out a 23-point, five-assist and four-steal performance.

No men please were skint Indian airline set to

first_imgNo men, please we’re skint! Indian airline set to recruit only female flight attendants because they weigh less – and cost less.A flight staffed entirely by women? Is this a sexist joke, a lads’ mag dream or a feminist utopia? No, this is reality, or at least is set to become so in India by 2020. If you’re set to jet between Delhi and Chennai or hop from Lucknow to Goa with GoAir in the next few years, look out for a lack of blokes serving the diet cokes. And if you’re a man on the make for a job indicating that the nearest emergency exit may be behind you, forget about GoAir.The Indian low-cost carrier recently announced that it would in future be recruiting only female flight attendants. Why? Because the heavier a plane is, the more fuel it has to burn, which costs more. And in general, geezers are heavier than girls, so GoAir is looking for lightweight ladies, presumably preferably with less-full frames than the leanest of lads, to save them 30 million rupees (£329,000) a year in fuel costs.The no-frills operator said that no present cabin stewards would be shown the door, but every position recruited for on its 80 new aircraft by 2020 will be filled by the female of the species. The airline revealed that for each ‘extra’ kilogram of load that one of its planes carries costs it an additional three rupees per hour of flight. In cost-cutting drive, it has already slashed the size of its in-flight magazine by 50%, while its planes fly with their water tanks half-full.Do you think women-only flights are a good idea?
