European aviation giant Airbus Wednesday reported a first quarter net loss of 481 million euros under the impact of the coronavirus crisis.The loss compared to a profit of 40 million euros ($43 million) in the same period last year.Revenues fell 15.2 percent to 10.6 billion euros, reflecting a “market environment strongly impacted” by the pandemic, “particularly in commercial aircraft.” Reuters earlier reported that the European planemaker had given its starkest assessment yet of damage from the coronavirus crisis, telling the company’s 135,000 employees to brace for potentially deeper job cuts and warning its survival is at stake without immediate action.In a letter to staff late last week, Chief Executive Guillaume Faury said Airbus was “bleeding cash at an unprecedented speed” and that a recent drop of a third or more in production rates did not reflect the worst-case scenario and would be kept under review.Topics :

BRITT — A Britt man originally facing 12 sexual abuse-related counts has entered into a plea agreement with prosecutors. 73-year-old Paul Dewitt was charged in August with six counts of third-degree sexual abuse and six counts of incest. He’s accused of sexually abusing a female victim six times between July and December of last year. Court documents state that Dewitt admitted to authorities to committing the sexual acts. Dewitt’s trial was scheduled to start today, but he has entered an Alford plea to three counts of third-degree sexual abuse, a Class C felony. An Alford plea means the defendant is not admitting guilt but acknowledges there’s enough evidence for a likely conviction. As part of the plea agreement, prosecutors will recommend ten-year sentences to be served consecutively for a total of 30 years, while lawyers for Dewitt are expected to ask for a 20-year sentence. Dewitt is scheduled to be sentenced on January 7th in Hancock County District Court.

The teams were divided into 4 groups and Saturday’s games were played in a round-robin format to determine the ranking for the various knockout tournaments to be played on Sunday. In the dry conditions hard and fast running rugby was the order of the day and most games went to form. As expected there was a short period of showery rain in the afternoon, which did cool things down and made the ball very slippery.The quality of the rugby was of the highest level throughout and was a credit to all who played their part. There were strong performances from all of the teams and many of the games were very close, with 2 drawn games in the preliminary rounds being awarded to the team which had scored first. There were one or two surprises and some of the teams found themselves in unfamiliar territory.Jim Howard (left) presents the Mike Cobb Bowl to the captain of the Bangkok University team.The Royal Thai Police showed that they really meant business as they won all 3 of their pool games and easily qualified from pool A. The biggest surprise of these early exchanges was the young boys from Surin, the Elephants Brutal, who easily topped pool D and beat former champions Southerners Gold on their way to Cup qualification.The two new teams, Sam Yan Rangers and O.V’s., performed well and both qualified for the Cup quarter-finals to be joined by the Royal Thai Police, Southerners Black, Southerners Gold, Bangkok Bangers, who were in a rarified atmosphere, and RPL Military Vikings, who proved that age and size were no impediment to winning!Southerners Gold were this year’s Shield winners.The host Panthers, Bangkok Japanese and two Hong Kong sides (HK Scottish and Valley Griffins) dropped down to the Plate, whilst Arch Thai, Bangkok University, i Animals and La Vache Rouge dropped to the lower division, with the bonus of a late start on Sunday.Both Valley Griffins and La Vache Rouge had put up a plucky display but unfortunately the weather conditions and the standard of the opposition were just too much for them and they withdrew from the tournament overnight quoting PST, PMT or hangover.Jim Howard (left) presents the Plate to the Southerners Black team.After a hard day’s play ended, cooling off in the pool was obligatory and a strong start was made on some of the mighty hangovers to be seen the following morning.Sunday dawned hot and overcast but by kick-off the sun was well and truly up with the promise of a real cauldron by the middle of the day. The Cup quarter-finals saw some very good and hard games, two games ended all square and the winner was decided by virtue of being the first to score and eventually the Royal Thai Police, Sam Yan Rangers, Bangkok Bangers and Elephant Brutal all progressed to the semifinals with both Southerners sides being defeated. The first time losers then dropped into the quarter-finals of the Plate led by the Panthers and Southerners Black and Gold.Shirts discarded, a team cools down on the touchline after a long, hot day.HK Scottish finally accounted for the younger O.V’s. team and were hoping to claim the Plate with now only the host Panthers blocking their path. RPL Military Vikings received a walkover from the Valley Griffins, who were reported to be lost somewhere in Pattaya’s new “comfort zone” while the Panthers kept their hopes of silverware alive with a convincing 19-0 victory over the Southerners Gold. Bangkok Japanese would face Southerners Black and go down to a heavy defeat thus dropping into the Bowl competition.Both semi-finals of the Cup were hotly contested and the Royal Thai Police showed just what a potent force they are in Thai rugby as they coasted to a relatively easy 14-0 victory against new boys Sam Yan Rangers. In the second semi-final the Elephants finally ran out of steam and were soundly beaten 21-0 by the guile and experience, not to mention age and weight of a Bangkok Bangers team playing thinking rugby. So the stage was set for a classic final between the youth and fitness of the Royal Thai Police and the age, experience and weight of the Bangers.Pattaya Panthers fans watch their team slip to defeat in the Plate final. (Photo/Harpic Bryant)The Shield competition saw former champions Southerners Gold up against another completely new team, i Animals, and it turned out to be a relatively easy victory for the Southerners but the plucky Animals fought hard and did manage a score before finally going down 19-5.The final of the Mike Cobb Bowl competition started with a minutes silence in remembrance of Mike Cobb, who was sadly killed after last year’s tournament and in whose memory the Bowl competition has been named. This was a very exciting game and the Bangkok U fans were screaming their team on. The final score of 14-12 meant that only one conversion separated the teams and the Bangkok Japanese were bridesmaids once again. However, it was very fitting that a student team should win as Mike Cobb was dedicated to coaching younger players and it seems that he may have had a hand in the destination of his Bowl from up above!Rival packs clash at the scrum.The Plate semi-final had seen the hosts squeak through by virtue of being the first to score against the RPL Military Vikings, thus setting up a clash with Southerners Black. Having beaten Southerners Gold in the quarter-final round the Panthers were quietly optimistic of taking home (or keeping in Pattaya) a trophy. However, that was not to be as they were undone by the all-round excellence and fitness of the Southerners. The Panthers got off to a bright start with a runaway try and conversion and play then flowed from end to end but the balance of power was with the Southerners as the Panthers faded and leaked 5 tries as they went down 35-7.So the Cup final was to be the former champions, Royal Thai Police, against the resurgent Bangkok Bangers and the match started at a frantic pace as the Police played some scintillating rugby, whilst the Bangers defended as if their lives depended on it. Eventually the dam broke and the youth and fitness gained the upper hand. The Police put on a magnificent display of hard running rugby and by the end were scoring almost at will as they regained the trophy with a runaway victory 40-0. The Bangers never gave up however and fought valiantly until the final whistle, and were also magnanimous in defeat.The quality of rugby throughout the 2 days was of a very high standard.After the final whistle everybody crashed into the pool and the presentations were made to all trophy winners, the highlight being the presentation for the first time of the Mike Cobb Bowl. Jim Howard commended everybody for the great spirit in which the tournament had been played and the outstanding quality of rugby throughout.A big vote of thanks goes to all the organizers and sponsors without whom a tournament like this could not happen and also a thank-you to the players and supporters who made it such a great sporting event. We hope to see you all again next year! There was an air of expectancy among the players arriving for the seventeenth staging of the Chris Kays Memorial 10’s Rugby Tournament at Horseshoe Point from April 29-30. Teams came from all over Thailand and other parts of the world to take part in one of the principal 10 a-side rugby tournaments in the region.Jim Howard (left), chairman of the tournament organizing committee, presents the Cup to representatives of the Royal Thai Police rugby team.The tournament was to be contested by 16 teams and for the first time the welcome mat was laid out to one of the best known teams in Thailand from Vajirawudh College (O.V.’s), always a name to be reckoned with when rugby is contested at school level and over the years they have provided many players for the Thai national team. Complete unknown quantities meanwhile came in the shape of the young i Animals squad, comprised mainly of graduates from Thonburi University, and Sam Yan Rangers, a newly formed club from students from Chulalongkorn University.Pattaya Panthers attempt to move the ball against Hong Kong Scottish on day 2 of the Chris Kays Memorial 10’s Rugby Tournament at Horseshoe Point in Pattaya, Sunday, April 30. (Photo/Harpic Bryant)The roster was of course graced as always by the host team Pattaya Panthers, who had been training hard under the watchful eyes of coach “ Stout “, who was now working in Australia but had returned especially for the tournament.Saturday dawned hot and overcast with a hint of expected rain but the field was in perfect condition for running rugby. The organizing cabal under Chairman Jim Howard had, despite a number of late scares managed to shuffle the pack and with the able assistance of the referees’ supremo Dave Viccars everything ran smoothly.
Chonburi officials congratulated the family of native daughter Sukanya Srisurat after she won Thailand’s second gold medal in weightlifting at the Rio Olympics.Gold medalist Sukanya Srisurat, of Thailand completes a successful lift in the women’s 58kg weightlifting competition at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Monday, Aug. 8.

Pimsiri Sirikaew took the silver medal in the same event, the first time Thai athletes have finished 1-2 in an Olympic event.Srisurat gave Thailand its second gold medal in women’s weightlifting. Sopita Tanasan opened the Games with a gold in the 48kg class. Chonburi native Sukanya was born on May 3, 1996 and first competed in 2009 before being added to the national team in 2010. A black cloud was cast over her weightlifting career when she was banned for two years in May 2011 after testing positive for the outlawed anabolic steroid methandienone.In 2013, Sukanya returned to the sport at the Asian Championships in North Korea where she won three silver medals. She took gold at the 27th Sea Games in Myanmar that year.In 2014, she won two more gold medals at a Russian competition and two at a Polish tourney. She has also collected numerous medals in domestic competitions.
Narduzzi found his name on the list on Sunday after being flagged 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct in the first half of a sobering 51-6 loss to rival Penn State. He apologized to his players and pledged it was a one-time event.The fourth-year coach hopes he can say the same about the second half the Panthers (1-1) endured while getting drilled by the Nittany Lions, who ripped off the game’s final 44 points and didn’t let up in the final minutes.Narduzzi had made it a point to say in the run-up to the 99th meeting between the two schools that playing Penn State is different from any other game on Pitt’s schedule. That doesn’t mean there’s any difference in the emotions after the outcome. The pain he felt Sunday wasn’t any different from any of the 17 other defeats he’s experienced since taking over.“They all hurt,” Narduzzi said Monday. “I don’t care what they are … it doesn’t matter.”The goal this week will be translating that perspective — that as difficult and ugly as the final 30 minutes against the Nittany Lions were, there is plenty to play for — to his club this week. Pitt opens Atlantic Coast Conference play on Saturday when Georgia Tech (1-1) visits. Pitt lost each of the last two years the week after facing Penn State, though both times it was to nationally ranked Oklahoma State.The Yellow Jackets and their unique triple-option provide a different kind of test. Pitt’s biggest challenge will be finding the emotional resiliency necessary to bounce back after a miscue-laden final two quarters in which they were outclassed on both sides of the ball.“Our players didn’t respond to adversity, our coaches didn’t respond,” said Narduzzi, who reiterated that it starts with him.Maybe, but a little help from the passing game would go a long way. Quarterback Kenny Pickett spent most of the night under heavy duress, took four sacks and passed for just 55 yards, barely half of that (32) to wide receivers. Through two weeks, Pitt is 122nd in the country in yards passing.Narduzzi made it a point to defend Pickett, offering a reminder that the sophomore was making just his third collegiate start. At the same time, Narduzzi acknowledged there were receivers who were running open at times and didn’t get the ball due to either the pressure Pickett faced or his reluctance to let it fly.“He’s a great QB,” Narduzzi said. “We’ve got a lot of faith in him. It’s his first time going through something like that.”Still, Pickett wasn’t much in the mood for consolation. When asked after the game if things could have been different if the Panthers had scored on a fourth-and-3 from the Penn State 4 late in the first half, he shrugged his shoulders.“That was a good word you used there. You said ‘coulda.’ Could of doesn’t mean . I don’t want to curse in front of you guys, but, could of doesn’t mean anything. We’ve got to come out and answer and be better.”The sooner the better. The next month includes trips to Central Florida and Notre Dame.“We’re not going to measure anything after a game, one game, two games, three games,” he said. “You are where you are. Everybody’s got goals. Every week this is the most important game.”___More AP college football: https://apnews.com/tag/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25 Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi , center, talks with his defense during the first half of an NCAA college football game against Penn State in Pittsburgh, Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018.

In this Jan. 3, 2001, file photo, former Carolina Panthers NFL football player Rae Carruth sits at the defense table during his trial in Charlotte, N.C. Former NFL wide receiver Rae Carruth has been released from prison after serving 18 years for conspiring to murder the mother of his unborn child. The Carolina Panthers’ 1997 first-round draft pick was released Monday, Oct. 22, 2018, from Sampson Correctional Institution in Clinton, North Carolina after completing his sentence. (AP Photo/Jeff Siner, Pool, File)Carruth was found guilty of orchestrating a plot to kill Cherica Adams on Nov. 16, 1999, in Charlotte, North Carolina, to avoid paying child support. Adams was shot four times while driving her car but managed to make a 911 call that helped implicate Carruth.Adams went into a coma and died less than a month later after the shooting.The child she was carrying, Chancellor Lee Adams, was delivered by emergency cesarean section but suffers from permanent brain damage and cerebral palsy.Carruth has never admitted guilt in Adams’ murder, but in a complex 15-page letter to WBTV-TV in Charlotte in February he wrote that “I feel responsible for everything that happened. And I just want (Saundra Adams) to know that truly I am sorry for everything.”Carruth’s former attorney, David Rudolf, did not immediately return phone calls Monday seeking comment about Carruth’s release and plans.Last week, Carruth told WSOC-TV in Charlotte in a telephone interview, “I just truly want to be forgiven.”He went on to say he was “somewhat frightened” about his release, adding that “I’m nervous just about how I’ll be received by the public. I still have to work. I still have to live. I have to exist out there and it just seems like there is so much hate and negativity toward me.”Carruth has repeatedly said he wants to have a relationship with his son, who remains in the custody of his grandmother, Saundra Adams, who has raised him since birth. Adams had previously said she would be there when Carruth got out of prison, but she was not present Monday.Carruth’s arrest on charges of conspiracy and attempted murder nine days after the shooting sent shockwaves throughout the Panthers organization.The team released Carruth and the NFL suspended him indefinitely after he fled the Charlotte area after posting $3 million bail and was found by federal authorities hiding in the trunk of a car in Tennessee, about 500 miles from Charlotte.Panthers center Frank Garcia played with Carruth for more than two seasons. He said players were stunned when they heard the news of Carruth’s possible involvement in the murder, about 20 miles from the team’s downtown stadium in the affluent section of South Charlotte.“It would be like finding out the guy sitting in the cubicle next to you at work was arrested for murder,” Garcia said. “You just don’t always know people as well as you think you do.”Garcia said Carruth was a little shy, and mostly kept to himself. But he said Carruth had a passion for helping kids, including reading books to elementary school students.It was a difficult time in Panthers history.Some players were called out of football practice to testify at the trial. Those not involved would spend time huddling in the players’ lounge watching the trial on Court TV.“That is one time where you were actually hiding from the cameras,” Garcia said. “You just wanted to stay low and not be involved. All along you’re asking yourself, ‘Did I miss any signs? How is somebody capable of this?’”While in jail Carruth worked as a barber, making about $1 per hour, the Department of Public Safety said.That’s a far cry from the four-year, $3.7 million contract Carruth signed with the Panthers after being drafted — although he never collected all of that money since he was released in the third year of his deal.___For more NFL coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/NFL and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL #BREAKING & #JUST IN: Our first look at Rae Carruth in nearly a decade.
