Travel firms refuse to pay out even if you’re forced to self-isolate and can’t fly

Pretty much all of the people I speak to at the moment are fed up and desperate for a holiday.

The recent announcement that the Canary Islands were off the quarantine list led to an online stampede for a Winter sun holiday, with prices rocketing and websites buckling under the strain.

Many, many more people are waiting to see what happens with popular countries like France, Spain and Italy – particularly those who moved their holidays forward at the start of lockdown.

With ever-changing travel and quarantine advice in the news daily – both at home and abroad – it’s difficult to keep on top of all the developments.

However, in the midst of all this, optimistic holidaymakers may be missing out on important changes with travel insurance.

When did you last get on a plane?

Jerry Falwell Jr. is suing Liberty University after his forced resignation over sex scandal

Former Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. filed a state lawsuit Wednesday against the evangelical school founded by his father, claiming he was wrongly ousted from his leadership post.

Falwell had led the school for 13 years before he resigned under pressure in late August amid a series of embarrassing scandals, culminating with him posting to Instagram a photo of himself on his yacht with a woman who was not his wife and with his pants unzipped.

In a complaint in state court in Lynchburg, Virginia, Falwell’s lawyers alleged that Liberty defamed Falwell and breached the former president’s contract.

“Mr. Falwell has suffered damage to his reputation, damage to his profession, humiliation, and anguish; lost business opportunities; and suffered other pecuniary damage,” according to the plaintiff’s complaint.

Liberty University “would need to read and review a lawsuit before making comment, and as of this moment we have not been served,”

In the wake of allegations of forced sterilizations at ICE detention centers, here’s how you can offer support

In the wake of allegations of forced sterilizations at ICE detention centers, here's how you can offer support
In the wake of allegations of forced sterilizations at ICE detention centers, here’s how you can offer support

In an explosive complaint filed on September 14, an ICE whistleblower alleged that unwanted hysterectomies, a surgical operation that removes the uterus, were performed on immigrant women in ICE custody at a Georgia facility without their consent. The complaint is currently awaiting a full investigation by the Department of Homeland Security. 

The whistleblower, Dawn Wooten, a nurse formerly employed at the Irwin County Detention Center (ICDC) in Georgia, maintained that while some women experienced medical conditions requiring hysterectomies, “everybody’s uterus cannot be that bad.” 

The reported high rates of performed hysterectomies (including allegations from Wooten that “just about everybody” who sees a particular gynecologist gets a hysterectomy) were coupled with allegations that many detained women were not given “proper and informed consent” about the procedures they received. The New York Times was

Labour, Conservatives and Liberal Democrats forced to hold e-conferences due to coronavirus pandemic

It’s party conference time – but not as we know and love it (and often hated it, too).

Gone are the three weeks of plotting and posturing in big halls, whispered briefings over tepid food, grazing on sausage rolls at fringes and rounding each day with liver-destroying receptions.

This year, thanks to coronavirus, it’s all online. Welcome to the e-conferences, an event that everyone can attend but, frankly, may prove tame since the best action usually takes place not on stage but in bars, corridors and nearby kebab houses.

For the control freaks at No 10 or Victoria Street it is a dream come true – a chance for ultimate message discipline without MPs or members. No chance of it being derailed by an unauthorised 3am reshuffle briefing in the Radisson Hotel bar.

They’re doing their best to recreate some of the fun.

Labour is staging a quiz night on

As Trump was comparing the coronavirus to the common flu, Ohio Republican Governor Mike DeWine was cancelling sporting events, ordering schools to close, and shuttering restaurants

The governor of Ohio was forced to address unfounded conspiracy theories as fake rumours went viral across social media in recent days about so-called “FEMA camps” set up across the state to enforce mandatory quarantines.

Gov Mike DeWine (R—OH) described the conspiracies as “crazy, ridiculous internet rumors” during a news conference on Tuesday afternoon about the coronavirus pandemic.

He spoke after unverified claims that had no basis in reality circulated this week alleging the federal government had established camps throughout Ohio for Covid-19 patients as part of an apparent effort to enforce quarantine orders.

“I want to talk about a rumour. I don’t spend much time talking about rumours that are on the internet because we wouldn’t get much done if we did that

The Pandemic Forced Us To Break Out Of Our Comfort Zones And Learn A Few New Things

I am not much of a silver linings kind of person. Sometimes shit is just shit, and this pandemic has been shit. And since I have been in a cloud of despair for a few weeks, it has been hard to see my own resilience while recognizing the hard work of friends and strangers who have also made adjustments and sacrifices.

Everything is different and so many things are new to us, yet there is a need to keep moving forward even when life as we know it seems to have stopped. I struggle with the constant uncertainty and the inability to make plans, or at least concrete ones. I am mourning a lack of control and often find myself fighting against situations that will not change no matter how much I exhaust myself in my efforts.

But—there’s always a but—some good things have come from our lives being drastically

A Delta flight was forced to return to its gate after two passengers refused to wear masks onboard amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 

A spokesperson for the airline told PEOPLE in an email statement that the plane “returned to the gate following two customers who were non-compliant with crew instructions,” before adding that the plane departed to its destination “after a short delay.”

According to Delta’s website, “Delta customers and employees are required to wear a face mask, or appropriate cloth face covering over their nose and mouth throughout their travel, aligning with best practice guidelines from the CDC.”

COVID forced these restaurants to change completely. Here’s why locals are loving it

A sleek Japanese cocktail lounge with caviar fondue is now baking pizza.

An upscale Miami seafood raw bar has turned to delivering saucy veal parmigiana and homemade meatballs.

And the kosher Wywood bakery known for some of Miami’s best bread is staying open late for a falafel-and-beer street food pop up.

The coronavirus pandemic, which closed restaurant dining rooms on and off throughout the last three months, has forced some of Miami’s favorite chefs, cooks and bakers to completely rethink their restaurants. In trying to save their businesses, they have created new concepts in old spaces — and become instant hits all over again with Miami’s quarantined crowd.

“It was all out of necessity and creativity. We needed more business to keep our staff and pay our bills,” said Zak Stern, owner of Zak the Baker bakery in Wynwood.

Stern said his bakery’s revenue fell by as much as 70
