A Favorite Daily Routine

        Setting the table has been something I enjoy doing since I was a little girl. The fork on the left, the knife to the right with its cutting part of the blade towards the plate. As I place the silverware alongside the plate, I imagine those who will sit around the table and dine. Hoping their stories will easily unfold like napkins, that their laughter will be tossed about like a green salad. I smile anticipating stories that will be swallowed whole and digested later. (A dinner is a mix...

The best airport lounges in the US

If there is ever a time to splurge and treat yourself to lounge access, it’s during the holiday season, when airports around the United States are as busy as can be.

Free public transport in Luxembourg

The free public transport movement is starting small for now, as it doesn’t get any smaller than Luxembourg, one of Europe’s tiniest nations. According to a new law enacted by Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, who leads the coalition government, fares on trains, trams, and busses will be lifted starting next summer. Indeed, it seems like this Democratic Party really knows how to get on its constituents’ good sides. In addition to free transport, it’s also pledged to consider legalizing cannabis a...

Traditional fish pie in Mousehole

As wild winds and stormy seas signal the arrival of winter, the Cornish village of Mousehole (pronounced Mowzel) near Lands End welcomes the weather with Stargazy pie. It looks like any other pie with a buttery, flaky crust except for one small detail: There are fish heads and tails poking out of the top crust, giving the illusion that fish are swimming through it. Eating a pie full of fish heads is not to everyone’s taste; it’s a very special tradition for this little village in Britain. Va...

SA Airlink flights to St. Helena

If this flight existed in 1815, Napoleon’s stay on this remote island might not have been so miserable. St. Helena, where Napoleon Bonaparte was exiled and later died, is one of the most far-flung islands in the world, and they didn’t send him there because it was easy to reach (or escape). Until late 2017, the only way to get there was via the Royal Mail Ship RMS St. Helena en route from Cape Town. Now, visiting this island in the South Atlantic is easier than ever with the introduction of a...

NYC breweries to visit this winter

Winter has arrived in New York City, so it’s time to pack on those layers and do our best to stay warm for the next several months. While there are fun activities you can do outside for free, sometimes you just need to stay inside and hand over a few more bucks to keep warm. Luckily, everyone seems to like drinking beer, so there should be no protests from your group. NYC is no stranger to the brewing scene, so there’s plenty of breweries that’ll help you hide out from the winter weather this...

A war hostel? ‘It is insane to want to sleep there’

3 Clever American Airlines Flight Numbers

Flight numbers frequently have meaning. Three years ago the final US Airways flight was US1939. It was given that number for the year the airline commenced operations. Today American Airlines has at least two flight numbers which remind us just how American the airline is. And there's at least one more flight number that's just fun. Do you know of any other flight numbers like this at American? Continue reading 3 Clever American Airlines Flight Numbers...

Best ski resorts for gay ski week

The dates of Gay Ski Week vary by resort, but one thing is consistent across the board — the word “ski” is used very loosely in practice. You can hop on one or two planks and hit the mountain as much as you wish — there’s always a group of diehards ready to hike the bowl if that’s what you’re into — but the real action begins with the après-ski scene around 3:00 PM and stretches deep into the evening. Parties last anywhere from a few days to a full week, but you’ll learn on night one why danc...

Life in the most affordable US city

Millennials will never be able to afford houses. This is the doomsday premonition of a lot of headlines these days — written mostly by people in New York and San Francisco, talking mostly to people in New York and San Francisco. Granted unreachable home prices aren’t exclusively the domain of NYC and the Bay Area; half of 18- to 34-year-olds in the United States spend over 30 percent of their income on housing, and 12 million people across age ranges spend over half. But outrageous rents and ...

Where I differ – and quite strongly – from Rajaji

I’ve by now had a good look at Rajaji’s writings. There is much to admire about him. He has no doubt about socialism being a bad idea. He repeatedly shows how socialism and communism will achieve the same – bad, violent, coercive – outcome. He is prolific in his critique of socialism. To that extent […]

Taxiway Landing Disasters Are Preventable But FAA Bureaucrats Haven’t Done It

Last year's Air Canada Toronto - San Francisco flight AC759 that lined up to land on taxiway C could have been the worst aviation disaster in history. Four planes were waiting on the taxiway to take off. Air Canada descended to as low as 59 feet — just three above the height of a United 787. Just after was a Philippine Airlines Airbus A340.

AI desperately needs regulation and public accountability, experts say

Artificial intelligence systems and creators are in dire need of direct intervention by governments and human rights watchdogs, according to a new report from researchers at Google, Microsoft, and others at AI Now. Surprisingly, it looks like the tech industry just isn’t that good at regulating itself. In the 40-page report (PDF) published this week, the New York University-based organization (with Microsoft Research and Google-associated members) shows that AI-based tools have been deployed wit...
