JetBlue Follows the Numbers

JetBlue has taken a fair bit of flak lately for falling in line with other airlines and their less customer-friendly policies, but this really isn’t all that surprising.  After all, JetBlue is a public company, and investors want to see stronger returns than the airline has been able to generate.  While Southwest has chosen a strategy of bucking the trends set by other airlines to generate impressive returns, JetBlue thinks the opposite is going to be its road to riches.  The airline’s argument ...

10 Hiking Trails Around the World That Will Blow Your Mind

I have always been a nature person. Cities, for me, seem unnecessarily chaotic and at times, overwhelming. Nature, on the other hand, is simple, straightforward in its beauty and comes at no extra cost. There is nothing better than walking in the peacefulness of the mountains, around the calming sound of rocks and rivers, and having the front seat row to Mother Nature. Whenever I have a chance to disconnect from the world and go on a four-day trek in the mountain, I would do so with no hesitati...

Town in the Swiss Alps now hotel

Corippo, a hillside village on the Italy-Switzerland border, might have very few remaining residents, but they’re not letting their community slip into extinction so easily. Once a farming town of 300 people, the population has since dwindled to 12, with the only economic activity generated by the local restaurant. Now, they’re pulling out all the stops to ensure their survival by turning the entire village into a tourist destination. With the help of Fondazione Corippo, a local nonprofit, Co...

Weirdest Arizonian obsessions

Arizonans are generally a laid-back group of people, but we have our quirks. Maybe this is due to our crazy cool landscapes or erratic weather patterns, but we have our own set of passions, hangups, and what could only be considered obsessions. Here are a few that pretty much all Arizonans share. 1. Being totally in tune with the past, present, and future weather Tucsonans know it’s always 10 degrees cooler in town than it is in Phoenix, and Flagstonians know the exact first day it’ll snow...

The Haunting of Hill House

I was very much looking forward to this new Netflix series, as it falls perfectly in my current horrorfest mode. I’ve watched the first two episodes so far, and I’ll say that I liked the first episode a lot more than the second one. I like the premise, but thing’s are moving a bit too slowly for my taste, especially in the second episode — it spends too much time on the family melodrama, while I’d like it to be more horrific. It’s too early to tell though where it’s all going, so I’ll definitel...

Scottish doctors prescribe nature

There’s one medication that has no nasty side effects and for which you don’t need medical insurance: the outdoors. On October 5th, doctors in Shetland, Scotland were authorized to prescribe “nature” to assuage the symptoms of patients with ailments including high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, diabetes, stress, and heart disease. The program comes with a leaflet outlining nature prescriptions by month. Suggestions include: “bury your face in the grass,” “notice every bird you see,” “c...

Judging a Book by its Cover

  Books at the brocante are as plentiful as going to the library, the only difference is it outside, noisy, and you never need to return them. Books on every subject exist at the brocante: fashion, religion, history, dramas, dictionaries, and from current authors to authors whose names speak volumes: Voltaire, Racine, Proust, Hugo, Baudelaire... the list goes on. Though I prefer to buy books that are old and usually ones from the 1700s and older. Not because I am going to read them, literally, ...

We have quite a few birch trees around us. In fact, our property is called les bouleaux (the birches). The woods around us abound in birches and their close relatives les aulnes (alders) and les charmes (hornbeams). Birches are among the first trees to populate an open space. Many of the abandoned vineyard plots and fields around us are home to the young trees. I remember birches from where I grew up in upstate New York, and reading Robert Frost's poem "Birches" (among others) in school. The s...
