Where to travel by zodiac sign

Maybe you think astrology is stupid. Maybe you think it’s a bunch of hippie-dippy junk science people use to excuse bad behavior. “Well you should have known I was going to was going to cheat on you, Janet. I’m a Scorpio!” Ok, well put that aside for a second. Because if you buy into astrology — if only for the time it takes to read your horoscope — it can be pretty entertaining. And sometimes, surprisingly accurate. Besides, even if you’re not into astrology, there’s a good chance someone yo...

A positive view is that we are witnessing a period of global re-adjustment. A more negative take is that there is a real risk of the fabric of the international legal order, created so carefully in the aftermath of the First and Second World Wars, unravelling. One of thi...

Airlines We Lost 2018

As we wind toward the end of the year, it is time to take a look back on what we’ve lost in 2018. Dozens of airlines failed this year, and that’s not a surprise. Not all of them were beloved, but they should still be honored for giving it their best shot. Fortunately, we had no Etihad-related failures this year after last year’s banner effort. That’s right, Alitalia lives to see another year, and we can all be thankful for that. Airlines in Venezuela weren’t nearly as lucky, nor were some of...
