The outage Monday grounded Delta (DAL) flights for at least six hours, stranding hundreds of thousands of passengers around the globe.

The computer system is back up and departures have resumed, the carrier said, but the aftereffects of the chaos are still being felt.

After about 1,000 cancellations Monday, Delta said it expects to call off more than 100 flights Tuesday. Around 200 morning departures are also expected to be delayed.

“Those numbers could grow overnight as Delta works to reset the operation and get crews, aircraft and other elements of the operation back in place,” it said.

It was one of the most anticipated swimming races of the Rio Olympics — and US star Lilly King backed up her fighting talk by defeating Yulia Efimova to win gold in the 100 meters breaststroke on Monday.

Affronted by her rival waving her finger in a “#1” gesture after winning her semifinal, the Indiana native had chastised the Russian ahead of the race.
King told a reporter, “You’re shaking your finger No. 1, and you’ve been caught for drug cheating. I’m just not a fan. I’m going to go swim my heart out for USA and hopefully that turns out the best.”
Indian rights activist Irom Sharmila has been on hunger strike for 16 years.

‘Iron Lady of Manipur’: World’s Longest Hunger Strike To End:

After nearly 16 years, the world’s longest hunger strike is due to come to an end Tuesday.

Human rights activist Irom Sharmila started her strike in 2000, after 10 civilians were allegedly killed by Indian soldiers in the country’s northeastern Manipur state.
Since then, Sharmila, also known as the “Iron lady of Manipur,” has been striking to protest India’s Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), which gives sweeping powers to the military to search properties, detain suspects without warrants and even shoot on sight.
