He seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.A Huntington Memorial representative could not be immediately reached for comment.Young was hired at the hospital in October 2016 and was an exemplary employee whose hours and pay increased as time passed, according to his court papers. In April, he sought treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and diabetes, and his doctor ordered him not to treat the hospital’s COVID-19 patients, according to his suit.Young says he sought time off under the California Family Rights Act due to his health and his request was approved May 15. But in early June, hospital management “began to single out plaintiff and criticize his performance,” the suit alleges.After Young complained of discrimination and retaliation, management reacted by firing him, saying he did not have a required bachelor’s degree in nursing, according to his court papers. Young alleges the explanation was a “pretext for discrimination” because management knew when he was hired that he did not have such a degree and that other RNs who work there also do not.Although Young told hospital management about his health and provided notes from his doctors documenting his claims, no effort was made to accommodate him for his condition, the suit alleges.

Nottingham: Jasprit Bumrah produced a hostile spell of fast bowling to put India on brink of a comprehensive victory before the final England pair delayed the inevitable on an engrossing fourth day of the third Test.Coming back from injury, Bumrah (5/85 in 29 overs) wreaked havoc with the second new ball after stiff resistance from Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes as England barely survived at 311 for 9 in pursuit of an improbable target of 521 runs.This was Burmrah second five-wicket haul in only fourth Test match.England will need another 210 runs on the final day which is impossible as the question is when would India take the final wicket on the fifth day to pull one back in the series.Also Read | WWE SummerSlam: Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns as it happenedThe last pair of Adil Rashid (30 batting) and Jimmy Anderson (8) played nearly six overs and will pray that fickle English weather come to their rescue.Flamboyant strokeplayers Buttler (106) and Stokes (62) curbed their natural instinct to added 169 runs in 57.2 overs in a show of grit and application.It was a tough period for the Indian bowlers as the two players were ready to grind it out. Buttler playing 176 balls with 21 boundaries but more importantly Stokes, who consumed 187 deliveries, hitting only six fours.While India were never in trouble but the period once again defined the beauty of Test cricket where it was once again proved why patience is the most important virtue for top teams.However things changed dramatically after skipper Virat Kohli took the second new ball and Bumrah got Buttler and Jonny Bairstow (0) off successive deliveries.Buttler shouldered arms to an angular delivery expecting to go over stumps but it cut back sharply to hit the knee roll and was adjudged leg-before.Bairstow, coming out to bat with a finger fracture also expected an incoming delivery but it straightened after pitching to knock back the off-stump.Lord’s Test centurion Chris Woakes (4) got lethal short ball that reared up and he tried to fend it awkwardly as Rishabh Pant timed his jump to perfection to snap the chance.Hardik Pandya (1/22) having a dream Test match then removed the stodgy Stokes who was squared up as KL Rahul took his third catch of the innings.Bumrah’s penchant for bowling ‘no-balls’ then prevented him from completing his five-wicket haul after Adil Rashid was caught by Kohli in the slip cordon. The TV replays showed that Bumrah had overstepped.However he completing the well-deserved milestone when Stuart Broad (20) edged one to Rahul for his fourth catch.Earlier, England were reduced to 84-4 at lunch as Ishant Sharma (2/70) took two quick wickets in the first hour.Starting from overnight 23 for no loss, the English openers didn’t stay for long, as they had no answer to Ishant’s probing line and length.Keaton Jennings (13) was out off the fifth ball of the day, caught behind. Ishant then made it two in seven balls as he also accounted for former skipper Alastair Cook (17), caught by KL Rahul at second slip.From 32-2, Joe Root (13) and Olliver Pope (16) put on 30 runs for the third wicket. England crossed 50 in the 19th over.However the duo were never really comfortable at the crease. Root was having trouble comprehending Bumrah’s angular delivery while Pope was playing flashy drives at every possible opportunity.It led to their eventual downfall, and they departed within five balls over the 25th and 26th overs.Also Read | Anushka Sharma’s Sui Dhaaga latest memes are complete laugh riotRoot was first to go, just hanging his bat out to a wide delivery as Rahul caught another one at second slip. Then, Pope was out caught off Shami, with Virat Kohli leaping in front of Rahul to finish a fabulous diving catch.Things could have been worse for England with young Pant dropping Jos Buttler on 1 off Bumrah in the 27th over.Thereafter, Buttler tightened up and along with Stokes as India were made to wait till late afternoon when Bumrah got into the act with second new ball.
No. 1 Alabama did so many things wrong in the SEC Championship game, but the unlikeliest of heroes emerged in the fourth quarter.Trailing 28-21, Tua Tagovailoa went down with an ankle injury and Jalen Hurts was called upon to save the day. Jalen Hurts pulled a Tua TagovailoaThis is clearly a joke, but seriously, Hurts participated in a dramatic role reversal Saturday. Last season, Hurts was removed from the national championship game in favor of Tagovailoa. The Hawaiian QB then famously went on to lead Alabama from behind in the second half to win.Well on Saturday, it was Tagovailoa who needed the reliever as Hurts was called upon to take the ball after the sophomore went down with an ankle injury in the fourth quarter. The Crimson Tide were down by a touchdown at that time.JALEN HURTS. TIE GAME.Football is awesome. pic.twitter.com/NyiEWREIaC— CBS Sports (@CBSSports) December 2, 2018Hurts shined after entering the game. He led the Crimson Tide back to victory behind 7-of-9 passing for 82 yards with two total touchdowns.Hurts could have transferred this season, but Saturday’s performance shows why the Crimson Tide was happy that he didn’t.JALEN HURTS!

JALEN HURTS! JALEN HURTS! JALEN HURTS! pic.twitter.com/73wcDMtZld— Sporting News (@sportingnews) December 2, 2018Tua could have just lost the HeismanThis may be unfathomable, but is it possible that Tagovailoa, the consensus Heisman Trophy favorite all season long, just lost the award with his performance Saturday?Tagovailoa went 10-of-25 passing for 164 yards with one touchdowns and two interceptions. He also made some really bad decisions, including a near fumble on a pass he threw too late and another intentional grounding on third and long which put the Crimson Tide back even further. And yes, he got hurt, but he played nearly three and a half quarters and completed 40 percent of his passes. It wasn’t a Heisman-worthy performance.This comes on a day in which Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray threw for 379 yards and three touchdowns while avenging the Sooners’ lone loss on the year in a Big 12 championship victory over rival Texas. He also went over 4,000 yards passing and 40 touchdowns on the season in the win.Murray made a statement in his championship game and has better numbers than Tagovailoa across the board. Is that enough to take the Heisman away from the Bama signal-caller?Georgia has a chance to still reach the CFPWith Georgia’s loss to Alabama on Saturday, the CFP selection committee has a decision to make: do they keep the Bulldogs in the playoff despite having two losses? It’s a valid question and one that needs some context. In the five years of the College Football Playoff, a team with two losses in the top four teams is a rarity. It has happened just one time and it came last season when Auburn was ranked in the top four with two losses on the year. The Tigers would have made the playoff if they had beaten Georgia in the SEC title game.So does Georgia — which gave possibly the best team in the last decade everything it could handle Saturday — deserve to be in the playoff despite two losses? It depends on whether the committee is looking for the four best teams or the four most deserving. If it’s the four most deserving, then OU is the likely choice. Despite the points allowed this season, OU has three wins over currently ranked opponents and defeated Texas in the Big 12 title game.But if the committee wants to take the four “best” teams, then that is Georgia’s way of getting in. Two losses have been justified before. Will they be justified now? He did just that as he threw for a score and rushed for another touchdown to lead Alabama to a 35-28 victory.Here are three takeaways from the SEC Championship game.

The commercial has been frequently cited as among the best in TV history.Greene was not available to receive the award at the time it was presented. When Coke realized upon the 30th anniversary of the commercial’s airing that Greene still didn’t have it, a ceremony was held before the Bengals-Steelers game Sunday.Tommy Okon, who played the wide-eyed youngster in the commercial, watched as Greene was given the award. He was nine at the time of the filming. REUNITED—Steelers hall of fame defensive tackle “Mean” Joe Greene, left, is reunited with actor Tommy Okon at Heinz Field Nov. 15. It was the 30th anniversary of the iconic “Mean Joe” TV ad for Coca-Cola that featured Greene and a then nine-year-old Okon. PITTSBURGH (AP)—Mean Joe Greene already had his four Super Bowl rings. Now, 30 years later, he also has his CLIO for one of TV’s most famous commercials. Greene earned the award, given annually for excellence in advertising, for his role in the 1979 commercial in which he flipped his game jersey to a young fan who handed him a cold Coke as the weary Steelers’ lineman limped to the locker room following a game.

That’s why the numbers retired so every Tom, Dick and Jose can’t wear it. C’mon Man!!!:05—All right…after this I am done.
