JFK Airport TWA Hotel infinity pool

Making airports pleasant places to hang out in sounds like a pretty insurmountable task, but this airport hotel might have finally cracked the code. The new rooftop infinity pool at John F. Kennedy Airport’s TWA Hotel will make you want to arrive three hours early — even for regional flights. Modeled after the infinity pool at the five-star Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France, this 63-by-20-foot-long pool allows you to relax while watching planes take off and land on one of JFK’s busies...

When the MAX Was Grounded, American’s Scheduling Team Had a Big Problem to Solve

On March 13, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) relented and made the decision to ground all 737 MAX aircraft flying in the US. As the last country to do so, this effectively meant the MAX was grounded worldwide as of that day. Here we are more than one month later and the airplane is still not flying. In fact, American just extended its cancellations over this past weekend through August 19. For the airlines that operate the MAX, the grounding presented an enormous problem. How co...

Sorry, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Has No Downtime For Bathroom Breaks

If you were hoping the lengthy Avengers: Endgame would give you an intermission, or at least some downtime to pop off to the bathroom, I’m here to dash those hopes. According to Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige, the three-hour-plus superhero epic will not afford you the luxury of hitting up the lavatory once the flick has started. So maybe consider getting a small soda when you go to see it. Are you prone to frequent trips to the bathroom while you watch movies? If so, please don’t sit...

After a Dramatic Summer Pullback, American Builds Up in New York This Fall

There has been a great deal of discussion around American and its shrinking presence in New York. While some have chastised the airline for pulling back significantly over the years, I am not one of those people. Why fight a battle you have no chance of winning? Some saw this summer’s hefty pulldown at JFK a sign of further shrinking, but it’s not. A schedule change over the weekend shows that starting in November, American is ramping back up even beyond where it was before. American can ...

Here’s What Book Covers Might Look Like for The Mueller Report

Turning a government report into a work of literature is not an uncommon occurrence. There are many in print, ranging from sobering (The Warren Report on JFK's assassination and the 9/11 Commission Report) to the more salacious (Ken Starr's findings on the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky affair). Creating a cover for these kinds of books, at...

10 Books About Ourselves and Our World

I'm an eclectic reader. My shelves contain a healthy mix of literary fiction, fantasy, mystery, and even middle grade novels. Sitting right next to all of that escape reading are a good number of true stories, science, history, essays, and biography. These days, I doubt I could name just one genre or subject as my favorite, but when I was in elementary school, I used to tell people that biography was my go-to. Today's roundup highlights the nonfiction titles I've added to my April reading...

Weekly Roundup, Friday 5 April 2019

Our reliance on the amazing convenience of GPS might become an issue on Saturday. Story, below. Good morningI hope you had a great April Fool’s Day on Monday.  This year, more than previously, I found myself struggling to tell the jokes from reality.  For example, this story about a tiny town in Denmark with only 7,000 people being the location for a new 1050 ft tower, to become the tallest in western Europe, definitely seemed like a joke, but it continues to be repeated around the internet, an...

From Scarcity to an “Ah Hah” Moment: Reclaimed Fluoros Keep Skis Fast

For six in the morning, the text message was dark and terrifying. “They are not selling ski crack any more. WTF they can’t be out.” At the time of the message, Jarrod had no idea he had a substance abuse issue or how far it would take him down a path of desperation. He just wanted to ski faster. He continues recounting the morning he hit the bottom. “With the realization, I might be out I was wide awake and sucking down a second cup of coffee. Not gonna lie, I was super anxious when I ope...

Some Thoughts on Last Week's Fourth Circuit Argument in MD/DC v. Trump

Last week, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit heard arguments in connection with President Trump’s petition for mandamus in the emoluments lawsuit brought against him by Maryland and the District of Columbia.   Although the hearing did not go particularly well for Maryland/DC, many of the concerns raised by the court are not troubling and can be easily addressed. M uch of the conversation focused on what injunctive relief the plaintiffs seek. In my view, the best answe...
