Thomas Cook said bookings for Portugal were “through the roof” immediately after the announcement.
TikTok/Alana LambertAlana Lambert and her friend Shekeria Thomas say they were eager to enjoy some sunny spring weather on Tuesday when they headed to New York City’s Central Park for a bike ride.But just as they were planning to head home after an hour-long ride, Lambert told The Daily Beast, her portable phone charger fell out of Thomas’ bag. Immediately, a woman picked it up and insisted the pair of Black women had to prove the charger was theirs, Lambert said.Thomas, 23, told The Daily Beast the woman “rushed to grab” the charger, and she was forced to ride after her. At first, she said, she “thought it was a joke.”“Things escalated quickly,” Lambert, a 22-year-old model, said on Friday. “For about a minute or so I was trying to talk to her reasonably. But when she called the police, saying that we were threatening and beating her, I was just in disbelief.”In a series of now-viral TikToks Lambert posted on Wednesday, the woman Lambert describes as the “new Central Park Karen” can be seen smirking as she apparently calls the police to accuse the pair of “touching” and “beating” her for refusing to return the phone charger.Detective Sophia Mason, an NYPD spokeswoman, told The Daily Beast on Friday there was no record of any 911 call made during the incident and there was no police report filed by any of the parties involved. Metadata reviewed by The Daily Beast shows that Lambert started to film the video on Tuesday at 6:41 p.m.During the contentious exchange, the woman repeatedly asks the pair to “prove” the charger is theirs, despite their insistence that it fell out of Thomas’ bag during their ride. Thomas said that the woman was “kind of aggressive and sinister” from the start of their 10-minute exchange.“There was no way I could prove the charger was mine but she kept asking why my name wasn’t on it or if I had a picture with it,” Lambert said. “I actually had a video of me from earlier in the bike ride that showed the charger but I knew at that point anything I said didn’t matter.”At one point, Lambert can be heard in the video asking the woman if she is racist. The woman replies: “Yes I am. I pick my race over any race, what’s your problem.”The maskless woman can be heard on the phone, telling what appears to be a 911 dispatcher that she is in Central Park and that “they’re going to beat me.”“They’re getting close to me and they’re already touching me,” the woman is heard saying as she tries to wheel her bike away from the two women. Thomas is heard insisting that the woman is lying, saying, “You know that’s illegal now, right?”Last June, New York City Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a law making it illegal to place false or racially fueled 911 calls weeks after Amy Cooper called police to accuse Black bird watcher Christian Cooper of threatening her life after he asked her to leash her dog in Central Park. Cooper, 41, was charged with filing a false report. The incident, filmed on the same day George Floyd died, triggered lawmakers to pass a series of criminal justice and police reform laws, and spurred a national discussion about white privilege.In a separate series of videos that Lambert said she filmed at the East Village precinct on Thursday, Lambert is heard attempting to file a police report. An officer tells them that the woman didn’t seem “mentally sane” and “doesn’t seem like a good person” but he didn’t think a crime had occurred.When Lambert asked him about the “Karens act”—possibly a reference to San Francisco’s new CAREN Act—the officer said he wasn’t aware of it.“It isn’t legal to make a false police report but from what that seems, it seems like she didn’t make a report, that the cops immediately knew that she was just, y’know, not all there,” the officer said.In another video, the officer is heard saying that the woman is “obviously not a good person” but “it’s not illegal to be a bad person,” and that cops determined the woman was “in the wrong there but it’s not criminality.”Lambert told The Daily Beast she was shocked by the officer’s reaction.“I have never heard of anyone being denied a police report,” Lambert added. “Honestly, I am kind of clueless about where to go from here. That was the police station. Those are the people I was supposed to go to. It was so disheartening and shocking.”Lambert’s TikToks of the incident, which she later posted on her YouTube and Instagram, have each been viewed at least 300,000 times. The initial video has 2.2 million views.Lambert said when the woman called the cops she was “relieved” because she was hoping officers would help her recover her charger. But, she said, she knew that she had to remain “patient and calm because the cops would see me as the aggressor.”“It was hard though because I was mad. And then when she said she was a racist, I was genuinely confused,” she said. “She just didn’t care.”At various times during the exchange, the woman threatened to break the charger, questioned the pair about who paid for it, and threatened to throw it away, claiming Lambert didn’t pay for it.Eventually, the woman is seen approaching a group of New York City police officers on horses, and telling them the two Black women had been “threatening” her. Lambert said that after she explained the situation to the officers, she was questioned briefly before getting the charger back.She said that while the incident was upsetting, being told she didn’t have grounds to file a police report was “heartbreaking.”At the end of one of the videos filmed in the police station, the officer is heard saying that he asked his sergeant if they could file a police report but they decided Lambert and Thomas didn’t have grounds to.When asked what they should do if this happens again, the officer said, “Always videotape. Video evidence is always the best evidence.”“I am still absorbing what happened,” Lambert said Friday. “I still want to press forward on the issue but it’s not something I’m trying to let consume my life. It’s just disheartening to know this can still so easily happen.”—Justin Rohrlich contributed reportingRead more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Saturday: ENGLAND Manchester City will clinch its third Premier League title in four seasons by beating Chelsea in what’s also a dress rehearsal for the Champions League final. With four Premier League games remaining, Chelsea’s priority is keeping hold of fourth place to ensure it qualifies for the Champions League without relying on winning the European Cup. Liverpool is struggling to even qualify for the Europa League as the seventh-placed deposed champion hosts Southampton. Tottenham is at Leeds also in a scrap for European qualification, sitting in sixth place. Relegated Sheffield United plays Crystal Palace, which is clear of danger in 13th place. SPAIN The Spanish league has a decisive match when third-placed Barcelona hosts leader Atlético Madrid at the Camp Nou Stadium. The Catalan club is two points behind and can take the lead for the first time. Second-placed Real Madrid, also two points off the lead, on Sunday hosts fourth-placed Sevilla, which enters the weekend six points from the top with four rounds remaining. GERMANY Bayern Munich is on the verge of a record-extending ninth consecutive Bundesliga title. The Bavarian powerhouse may even have it wrapped up before it hosts Borussia Mönchengladbach in Saturday’s late game if old rival Borussia Dortmund beats second-placed Leipzig earlier. Bayern is seven points ahead of Leipzig with three rounds remaining. Dortmund won’t mind helping Bayern as it needs to keep the pressure on fourth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt in their battle for Champions League qualification. Frankfurt, which hosts Mainz for a derby on Sunday, is just a point ahead of Dortmund and only the top four qualify for Europe’s premier competition. Leipzig’s visit to Dortmund also serves as an appetizer for the teams’ German Cup final in Berlin next Thursday. Dortmund is unlikely to risk star striker Erling Haaland, who is struggling with a knock and more likely to return in Berlin. Also, third-placed Wolfsburg hosts Union Berlin, Bayer Leverkusen visits struggling Werder Bremen, and Hoffenheim entertains already-relegated Schalke. FRANCE Lyon's push for a Champions League spot has it hosting lowly Lorient, which is moving closer to safety. Lyon boosted its Champions League hopes by beating Monaco last weekend, and victory over Lorient will move it two points ahead of Monaco into third. Two struggling sides meet in the day's other game when 15th-placed Bordeaux goes to 18th-placed Nantes, which won its last two games but is four points behind Lorient. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press

As Regina Police Service members plan for another rally protesting COVID-19 measures on Saturday afternoon, spokeswoman Elizabeth Popowich says the service is getting a steady stream of public tips about a group of maskless people from an April rally who apparently went inside the Cornwall Centre. Meanwhile a digital citizenship researcher is advising caution on social media as images of alleged health protocol violators can misidentify people online. Seeking tips from the public, the police service Thursday evening posted short video clips on its website of 17 maskless people, whom it says were hanging out inside the downtown shopping mall on April 24. Provincial public health orders call for everyone to wear a mask when inside a public space. “Those tips have been coming in quite steadily, which is gratifying,” Popowich said. “The public is an amazing resource when it comes to eyes and ears and the ability to identify others in our community. We can’t possibly know everyone.” University of Regina digital citizenship and social media researcher Alec Couros says this type of seeking-public-tips method — especially that which uses video — happens “quite commonly,” referencing the Jan. 6 riots on the U.S. Capitol as a recent example. But he advised those people sending in tips to be diligent and cautious, given the potential for dragging the wrong people through the mud. “(Because) these are public documents and anyone can identify someone erroneously, that person could be unduly shamed online. It could be sent to their employer,” he said as an example. “People on social media have to be very careful about how they not only identify people, but if someone else has identified (a person), you have to be very cautions about sharing it unless you know 100 per cent this is the person.” Part of that risk is the fluidity of web- and network-based communications. “Twenty or 25 year ago, police probably wouldn't have had a public website … even in this case, I don't regularly go to the Regina police Twitter (page),” he said. “But because other people retweet them or amplify them, I'm more likely to see this and participate in this activity.” Popowich said when the police service receives a tip about a person, it doesn’t share the person's name unless or until the force lays a criminal charge. She added none of the posted videos name the people in them. Getting duplicate tips about the same person can also help “corroborate the original information,” she said. Looking to Saturday’s rally, Popowich said the service hopes “people will abide by public health orders.” Uniformed officers are planning to monitor and ensure public safety, she said. Other police members are to be focused on the “investigative side.” firstname.lastname@example.org Evan Radford, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, Regina Leader-Post, The Leader-Post
Crystal Palace will hope to end a run of three successive Premier League losses when they travel to face relegated Sheffield United on Saturday. The Eagles have taken only one point from a tough quartet of games against Everton, Chelsea, Leicester and Manchester City, with just one win in their last eight leaving them drifting in 14th - but still with an 11-point buffer to the relegation zone - ahead of a likely summer of big upheaval at Selhurst Park. Roy Hodgson has pledged to throw off the shackles for the final five matches of the season amid ongoing uncertainty over his Palace future, starting at Bramall Lane this weekend.

In January, Victoria Hurst was deemed legally blind and told to get an urgent cataract surgery. But days before the April procedure, Ontario ordered hospitals to postpone non-life-saving surgeries to prepare ICUs for the COVID-19 surge. Now, the 69-year-old Stoney Creek resident is in the lurch learning how to live with a new disability. “I don’t know how to make a cup of tea without burning myself,” she said. Victoria had been dealing with problems in both eyes for years. Last July, her right eye was removed. In October, she was diagnosed with lymphoma in her left eye. At the time, doctors said a cataract in that eye wasn’t an immediate problem. But in just two months, her eye got worse. A doctor told her there was damage to an optic nerve, but couldn’t say what caused it — chemotherapy or a different, hidden problem — without surgery. The procedure would also potentially help her recover partial vision. Victoria’s surgery was scheduled for April 13 at North York General Hospital’s Cataract High Volume Centre. But on April 8, Ontario Health, a provincial agency, sent a memo instructing hospitals to “ramp down” all elective and non-urgent procedures effective April 12. Elective surgeries are necessary procedures that affect a patient’s quality of life, though they do not need to be performed immediately. Emergency procedures are ones considered life-threatening and must to be completed within hours or days. North York General Hospital confirmed in an email that all cataract surgeries were postponed due to the province’s direction. The hospital, which declined to provide a name with the statement, noted it’s preparing “to ramp up postponed surgeries as quickly as possible ... as soon as we are able.” The directive means patients like Victoria are left suspended as hospitals scramble to keep up with ICU demand. As of April 19, Ontario had an estimated cumulative backlog of 257,536 surgeries due to the pandemic. “Clearing the surgical backlog will be an enormous challenge,” said Adalsteinn (Steini) Brown, dean of the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto, during provincial projections April 29. The Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table said ICUs are continuing to fill up, with occupancy in critical care expected to “remain above the level necessary to restart surgeries for some time.” Victoria had to move in with her son, Ryan, and his wife, Aeisha. A lack of supports during COVID-19 make it hard for her mother-in-law to adapt, Aeisha says. Both Victoria and Aeisha say Victoria’s greatest loss is her independence. “She couldn’t take care of the home,” Aeisha said. “The system totally failed her.” At Hamilton Health Sciences, 715 out of 1,842 non-urgent procedures scheduled between April 12 and 30 were delayed, according to spokesperson Wendy Stewart. St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton also had to “drastically reduce” surgeries, said chief of surgery Dr. Anthony Adili. He said roughly 500 to 550 procedures are added to the hospital’s backlog each week. Endoscopies and minor procedures — such as for carpal tunnel syndrome or skin cancer — are running at 25 per cent capacity, Adili said. Bigger surgeries at the Charlton and King Street campuses are down to 40 per cent. That includes joint replacements, plastic reconstruction surgery and hernia repairs, among other procedures. Adili estimated that it would take “a good eight to 10 months” for St. Joe’s to catch up. “It has a huge impact on patients,” he said. The orthopedic surgeon said some of his patients have had to cut down their shifts or stop working entirely as a result of the delays. Some use canes and walkers for support. “Their joint pain is so severe that they can’t function at work,” he said. “They’re pretty significant procedures.” And cataract patients like Victoria are left with limited to no vision until hospitals return to normal operations. The doctor noted that the delays would likely affect some patients’ conditions, and perhaps make their surgeries more complicated and impact their outcomes or recovery. “But it’s a balancing act,” Adili said. “It’s a constant struggle for us to say who gets access.” At the same time, he doesn’t believe the delays will cause patients to reach a point where they can no longer be treated. He encourages people to follow public health measures and get vaccinated as soon as possible to avoid more pressure on already overwhelmed hospitals. “If we can minimize the spread, it’ll allow us to catch up.” At the same time, he encourages those who need medical care to get it, emphasizing that hospitals are safe.
