Noah Smith was let go by HyperSocial, and last week the CEO, Braden Wallake, posted a lengthy explanation on LinkedIn of how devastated he was.

    PARIS (AP) — The chief of airline alliance Air France-KLM said Thursday that it will take weeks or months to get new security staff in place to lighten pressure on the Amsterdam airport, which has seen flight cancellations, damaging delays and big travel headaches as global air travel rebounds from the COVID-19 pandemic. Air France-KLM CEO Ben Smith told reporters that the company is seeking compensation for some of its losses, blaming the troubles at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport on shortages of security and other ground personnel outside KLM’s control. While the Dutch government faces pressure to find solutions, once security personnel are recruited, “it could take weeks or months to have them in a position” because of government requirements for security clearances, Smith said. Airlines and airports that slashed jobs during the pandemic are struggling to keep up with soaring travel demand, and passengers are encountering chaotic scenes at airports around Europe and the U.S. Smith downplayed concerns about an Air France pilots’ strike scheduled for Saturday, saying only a small minority of pilots are expected to participate and he...

The Rovers boss is on his way from Craven Park at the end of the season after admitting he has not been able to influence certain areas as much as he would like. 4Hull KR coach Tony Smith hopes this year is not his last chance for silverwareCredit: SWPIX.COM One thing he has changed, though, is onfield performance and after going to Super League's semi-final last year, reaching the Challenge Cup final by beating Huddersfield tomorrow would be the next progression.

    In the moments following the deadly school shooting allegedly carried out by 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley, his mother’s primary concern was losing her job, her supervisor said in court on Tuesday. “Ethan did it,” Jennifer Crumbley allegedly wrote in a text message shortly after gunfire erupted at Michigan’s Oxford High School on Nov. 30. “I need my job,” she pleaded in a second text. “Please don’t judge me for what my son did.” The revelation came from Andrew Smith, COO of the real estate firm where Jennifer was employed as a marketing director. “I was surprised she was worried about her job at that time,” Smith testified, emphasizing that he thought she would have been more concerned about the four students fatally shot that day.

    ENGLAND manager Gareth Southgate is just one game away from writing his name in history. Only Italy stand in the way of the Three Lions boss putting the demons to rest that admittedly haunt him after missing a penalty in the Euro '96 semi-final against Germany. 19Gareth Southgate has gone from heartache in 1996 to the verge of greatness in 2021 19Gareth Southgate is one game away from winning the Euros as manager of EnglandCredit: AFP 19A win on Sunday would give deep-thinker Southgate redemption after his Euro '96 heartbreak after missing the vital penaltyCredit: AP The 50-year-old has always been a deep-thinker, even if didn't start out so well for him.

Southgate's journey has been epic, to say the least... 'POSH BOY FROM CRAWLEY' Although Gareth began his career at Southampton, before...

    Bobby Paul Edward, 56, may have to pay double in restitution for enslaving an intellectually-disabled black man and making him work without pay An alleged racist restaurant boss who enslaved a disabled black employee for four years has been ordered to pay his victim double the $273,000 fine previously set. An appeals court ruled last month that Bobby Paul Edwards, who ran the J&J Cafeteria in Conway, South Carolina, should now pay John Christopher Smith, 43, $546,000 in withheld wages and damages.    The fourth circuit judge who upped the restitution amount ruled that the fine levied on Edwards as part of a 2019 plea deal which also saw him jailed for 10 years was insufficient.    The judge argued in court documents obtained by the Daily Mail that the original amount only included unpaid minimum wages and overtime compensation, but did not include 'an additional equal amount as liquidated damages,' as required under the Fair Labor Standards Act which doubles the amount repaid to victims like Smith who have been exploited by their employers. In its 2019 decision, the district court...

    Trevor Lawrence casually walked into ESPN’s Marty Smith’s live shot ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft. Ever since the start of the 2021 season, the talk has been surrounding which lucky team would land the first-overall pick in the NFL Draft to earn the right to select Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence. That organization is the Jacksonville Jaguars, and it is basically a foregone conclusion that Lawrence will be heading to the Sunshine State for the start of his professional career. Lawrence won’t be in attendance for the draft festivities, instead, he’ll be spending it at home in Clemson, South Carolina with 60 of his closest friends and family. ESPN’s Marty Smith was reporting live from the Lawrence residence during a live spot for the network, and the consensus first-overall pick casually walked right into the shot to hug the reporter!

    Our favorite media feud has reared its nerdy head — this time with the publisher of Harper’s challenging hotshot New York Times media reporter and former BuzzFeed boss Ben Smith to a no-holds-barred reportage battle. Smith recently published a largely complementary article about Harper’s, calling it “America’s most interesting magazine.” But he also said it is “media’s oddest workplace,” noting that Harper’s honcho John “Rick” MacArthur brought staff back into the newsroom in August after his personal doctor told him they hadn’t seen a case of COVID-19 “in three months.” Smith said it forced staff to “trudge to the office” and “Zoom one another from their desks.” The piece also mentioned foibles including that MacArthur writes an occasional column in French for the Montreal newspaper Le Devoir — then “the column is translated back into English by someone else, then published without further editing on the Harper’s website.” MacArthur, a former Chicago Sun Times and Washington Star reporter, told Page Six of Smith, “He made me look like an effete weirdo. I’d beat Ben Smith handily...
