Air Canada passenger falls asleep on plane, wakes up alone

Climate Telangana Today

She then used the torch to draw the attention of a luggage cart driver, who arrived to find Adams with her legs hanging out of the plane's open doorway.
'Montreal: A woman boarded an Air Canada flight earlier this month, fell asleep after takeoff and woke up alone in a dark, parked plane, apparently forgotten about by ground staff.Tiffani Adams’s story was posted by a friend on Air Canada’s Facebook page, drawing incredulous reactions from readers and a request for details from the airline.According to the post, Adams was flying from Quebec to Toronto Pearson International Airport when she fell asleep, aided by the fact that she’d ended up with a whole row of seats to herself.She woke up in “pitch black,” with the plane having landed and apparently been towed away from the airport, after passengers and crew had disembarked. “I think I’m having a bad dream (because) like seriously how is this happening,” she wrote.She briefly called a friend but was cut short when her phone’s battery died. “I’m trying to focus on my breathing and control my panic attack while I attempt to charge my phone by plugging into every USB port I could find,” she wrote, but that proved fruitless because the electricity on the plane was turned off.After finally finding a torch in the cockpit, she managed to open one of the doors but faced a drop of up to 50 feet (15 meters) to get out of the plane.She then used the torch to draw the attention of a luggage cart driver, who arrived to find Adams with her legs hanging out of the plane’s open doorway. “He is in shock, asking how the heck they left me on the plane,” she said. “I’m wondering the same.” Air Canada apologised for the incident, Adams said, but she hasn’t had much sleep since and is struggling with night terrors.Air Canada told broadcaster CTV News that it was reviewing the episode but declined to offer further details. .

'NEW DELHI: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar Monday said his ministry has proposed manufacture of e-passports on priority so that the travel document with advanced security features can be rolled out in the near future.Speaking at the seventh Passport Seva Divas, Jaishankar said the ministry has initiated discussions with the ‘India Security Press’ regarding the project for issuing chip-enabled e-passports to the citizens. “We propose to pursue the manufacture of e-passports on priority so that a new passport booklet with advanced security features can be rolled out in the near future,” the minister said.He said that in line with the commitment made by the government in its previous tenure, the ministry shall continue with the process of opening new Post Office Passport Seva Kendras (POPSK) in every Lok Sabha Constituency where no seva kendras exist today. “Both our ministries (MEA and Ministry of Communications) are completing the necessary formalities for early inauguration of the POPSK already announced.We would also be announcing more locations for setting-up POPSK after completing the feasibility studies,” he said. “Last five years of passport services delivered by the ministry constituted a passport revolution.The mandate of the MEA is to ensure good governance and a transparent, efficient, timely, effective, reliable, assured and accountable public service delivery system,” he said.Noting that on average, more than one crore passports are issued every year, Jaishankar thanked Communications Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad for enabling opening of 412 POPSKs since January 2017. “Together with the 93 Passport Seva Kendras which are already functional, this has taken the total number of PSKs in the country to 505 today.The common man of the country now has a Passport Seva Kendra near his or her residence and is not required to travel too far to submit the passport application,” he said.Jaishankar said the partnership between MEA and Department of Posts is a wonderful example of the best practice in citizen-centric governance.He said optimal use of the technology should be made along with the tools provided by the government’s initiatives under Digital India. “During the passport seva diwas last year, the mpassport seva mobile app and apply for a passport from anywhere scheme were launched.These two initiatives demonstrate how technology can help applicants,” he said.Jaishankar also gave awards at the function to the best performing passport offices.Jalandar Passport Office got the first prize followed by Cochin Passport Office and Coimbatore Passport Office at second and third position respectively.He said the state police authorities have an important role in the timely delivery of passports. “The average time taken for police verification has come down to 19 days in 2018, and we would like to bring this down further.In this context, the performance of states like Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Kerala has been exemplary and their award today is well deserved,” he said.

Murray mulls over US Open singles return after Queen’s doubles triumph

Sports Telangana Today

The three-time Grand Slam champion's triumph comes after what he described as 'life-changing' hip surgery earlier this year.
'London : Former world number one Andy Murray says he could resurrect his singles career at this year’s US Open following a remarkable return to tennis with victory in the men’s doubles at the Queen’s Club tournament on Sunday.The 32-year-old Scotsman teamed up with Spanish partner Feliciano Lopez to take a 7-6 (8/6), 5-7, 10-5 win over Britain’s Joe Salisbury and Rajeev Ram of the United States.The three-time Grand Slam champion’s triumph comes after what he described as “life-changing” hip surgery earlier this year.Murray said that while he had not made up his mind about a return to singles, the US Open would be the tournament where it could happen.If so, it would be a remarkable turnaround for a man who was tearfully pondering retirement in January and has seen his singles ranking tumble to 215 in the world. “I mean, potentially, yeah,” he said when pressed as to whether the US Open — where he won his first Grand Slam title in 2012 — could be the place to resume his singles career. “But I don’t care, really, either way.Like, it would be nice to play at the US Open, but if I don’t — look, I got so much enjoyment and happiness after winning a first round doubles match here that, you know, that’s enough. “I don’t have to be getting to the US Open this year and be really competitive and have to win the tournament for me to enjoy it.” Murray, also a two-time Olympic singles champion, said he had to be mindful about his hip, although he came through the week at Queen’s pain free. “It’s not just to get back on the court playing singles,” he said. “It’s to protect my hip for the longer term to make sure that my muscles are in the correct balance so that I’m not impacting the hip in the same spot all of the time. “I need to improve the range of motion in my hip as well so that when I’m changing direction that there is a bit more freedom for it to move around.Murray — watched by his wife Kim and mother Judy on Sunday — may be regretting deciding not to play with the 37-year-old Lopez at Wimbledon.The Spaniard produced a Herculean effort, winning the singles title in three sets earlier in the day against Gilles Simon of France before playing sublimely in the doubles. ‘It’s mental really’ Murray praised Lopez for his extraordinary feat of endurance which saw him out on court for over 15 hours during the week — and added the title meant more than some of the singles titles he has won. “This is very different for me, and it’s more special than a lot of the singles tournaments that I have won for a lot of different reasons,” he said. “I just won the doubles here with Feli (Lopez), you know, with a metal hip.It’s mental, really. “That’s a cool thing to be able to have done, and yeah, just because of probably where I was a few months ago. “At times, even as far as just two months ago, I just wasn’t thinking about this.” Murray will now move on to Eastbourne before playing at Wimbledon where he will be partnered by Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert.Lopez paid a handsome tribute to Murray and said if he continued on this trajectory he should be back playing singles. “This happens only once in a lifetime to win here at singles and doubles,” said Lopez reflecting on his own extraordinary week. “I hope that he’s (Murray) gonna be playing singles soon.But I’m sure that if he keeps progressing the way he’s doing right now, we’re gonna see him playing singles again.” .
