787 jetliners. The Oslo-based company will add the services next July, serving New Yorks John F. Kennedy airport three times a week and the two other U.S. cities twice weekly, it said today at a press briefing in London. One-way fares will start at 149 pounds ($240) for New York, 199 pounds for Los Angeles and 179 pounds for Fort Lauderdale, 20 miles north of Miami. Theres great demand for high-quality flights at a low fare between the U.K. and the U.S., particularly to and from London Gatwick , where no other airline currently offers these routes, Chief Executive Officer Bjoern Kjos said. Norwegian Air, which will operate the trans-Atlantic services using a fleet of Boeing Co. (BA) 787 Dreamliner planes, is also adding flights from Gatwick to the Mediterranean islands of Corfu, Cyprus, Santorini and Sicily, and to Hungarian capital Budapest, while boosting frequencies on nine existing routes.

London calling for Bethel-Thompson again
Relaxed and defiant, this is a sculpture that could offend or provoke tears. It wont be ignored. 5. Urs Fischer, Sunny side up, epoxy resin, fiberglass, expanded polystyrene foam, pigment, water-based oil paint, 2012 (Sadie Coles HQ, London) Urs Fischer s fried egg is a welcome change of pace, an injection of pure glee. Unless you can see a face in an egg sunny-side-up, were safely clear of humans, at last. Or maybe notwho else fries eggs? 6. Djordje Ozbolt, Made in Africa (Assembled in China), Dyed polyester resin, 2013 (Herald Street, London) African tribal totems in primary colors, cast in resinthe primitive manufactured for our amusement, which peaks when you catch a glimpse of blithely modern fairgoers strolling behind these atavistic forms. Framed on the wall behind the totems is colorful, atomized bunting by Amilia Pica, another African artist, which adds pep to the celebration of the continents artistic prowess. (1:54, Londons new Contemporary African Art Fair, is currently on view at Somerset House.) 7. Dan Graham, Groovy Spiral, Two-way mirror cylinder, bisected by perforated stainless steel, 2013 (Lisson Gallery, London, Milan, New York) The Lisson Gallery, like the Stephen Friedman Gallery, is exhibiting only one work at the fair this year: Groovy Spiral, which invites you to curl into its navel. Introspection might be your bag, or you might prefer to be a spectator.
I feel I can [contribute to as a freshman runner] because of the type of person I am. I wont stop working until I have reached the goal I have set for myself. One of Freelands priorities has been rehabilitating a strained groin, which she suffered near the end of last season. The injury kept her out of running for much of the summer and being idle wasnt what the active Freeland had in mind. She was expecting to compete in the USA Track & Field Junior Olympics at North Carolina A&T, but was forced to attend as a spectator instead. And she couldnt compete for her academy team, New Wave Track Club, which marked the first time in nine years she wasnt running full time during the summer. It was kind of hard, because I wanted to be out there competing, Freeland said. Its healing. It actually feels much better than before. The remedy was physical therapy and short but intense workout sessions this fall, which includes sprints and weight training.Shes currently preparing for the indoor season, and is expected to once again be a force. As a junior she won indoor DCIAA and DCSAA titles in the 300 and 500 meter, and also took city crowns in the 800 and 1,600 meter. During the outdoor season, she captured DCIAA and DCSAA titles in the 200 and 300 meter, the 300-meter hurdles and took city titles in the 800 and 1,600 meter events. Freeland said she plans to make a college decision before February, and was intrigued with Mississippi State, she said. They have a nice facility. The first day that they offered me, they had my attention, Freeland said. College is on my mind.
27. Bethel-Thompson will be a story for the English media again. Last month, he was popular there because his maternal grandfather, Wilbur “Moose” Thompson won the gold medal in the 1948 Olympics in the shot put at Wembley Stadium. “I got some interviews for sure,” Bethel-Thompson said of his September visit to Wembley. “They love their Olympics over there.” His grandfather is 93 and living in Southern California. He will not attend the game, nor did he when Bethel-Thompson was wearing purple. He does have a cousin teaching in Austria and she went to the Vikings-Steelers game. “She’s hit me up for tickets again,” he said with a laugh. Bethel-Thompson realized he’ll be heading back to London shortly after he was claimed by the 49ers on Oct. 9. “It was cool to be a part of that, the whole process of being in the same stadium as my grandfather,” Bethel-Thompson said. “The second thing, it was just a very cool environment. Talk about 98,000 people and they’re good fans.” “It’s a very different vibe than American stadiums. They’re very into it, with flags all over the place. It’s a very cool place to play.” The 49ers are staying and practicing at the same place the Vikings did.
