An Emergency Battery/Starter for your Car

Murphy’s Law dictates that dead batteries always fail at the worst possible time and place. We’ve all had a dead battery surprise us in our car.  There’s nothing worse than when you’re running late, you get into your car, attempt to start it, and instead of the engine happily springing into life as commanded, there’s nothing more than a sluggish groan and – even worse – possibly the clacking of the starter motor relay opening and closing.Hopefully, when such a misfortune befalls us, we’re not fa...

What to eat, drink, and do in Cognac

It’s a Wednesday night in late January and Bar Luciole in Cognac, France, is comfortably full. Bartenders from a Europe-wide cocktail competition serve their signature drinks, and the high-ceiling bar echoes with a mix of DJ beats, ice hitting cocktail tins, and too many different languages and accents to keep track of. It’s a far different scene than the Cognac of a decade ago. Cognac, a town of fewer than 20,000 people, is two hours north by train from Bordeaux (an hour and a half by car). ...

Best things to see and do in Tunisia

A trip to Tunisia promises a first-hand look at a country proud of where it stands in the region and in the world. Tunisians, who had massive street protests and an attack at their famed art and history museum in the last decade, have entered an era of peace that is, as hope here has it, built on the idea of moving beyond the corruption that brought on the Arab Spring. Tunisia is rich in history, most easily experienced through the vibrant flavors of the country’s Arabic and North African cui...

Best national parks in spring

Spring is perhaps the best time to plan a visit to one of America’s national parks.

Here’s What it Takes to Get Fired as a Flight Attendant in Australia

It's difficult to get hired on as an employee in many professions in Australia because it's so difficult to get fired, and because benefits can be so generous. Frequently workers are taken on as contractors rather than employees. Qantas has learned this over and over, for instance when a flight attendant was awarded six months' pay because the government determined it was 'harsh' to fire him after he was found with “a can and a bottle of beer in his jacket, two 50ml bottles of vodka in his trou...

A photo series: Faded and dying rural Japan

Away from Japan’s main cities and popular tourist destinations, the country is awash with faded and gradually emptying towns and settlements — the nation’s low birth rate and increased urban migration causing the slow death of an ever increasing number of locations. Not so long ago on these pages I documented a now closed and overgrown train line just north of Tokyo, and last year a completely abandoned village in the mountains. Both victims, in slightly differing ways, of the aforementioned so...

There are fabulous views of Notre Dame and the Seine as well as the apartment buildings on the other side of the river. Elegan...

Delta Introduces New Business Class Seat for Boeing 767-400s – Huge Disappointment

Delta's CEO seemingly told employees that their 767s would get new suites in business class with doors. Unfortunately this is not what's happening. There's going to be a new seat, better than the current 767 seat, but uncompetitive compared to what other airlines will be flying on some similar routes.
