As telecommunications and travel methods get better, our world continues to get smaller. Whether you’re engaging in international business or just looking to relate to the broader planet around you, the benefits of being a citizen of the world — with the multilingual talents, to boot — will only help differentiate you from the crowd. […]
Languages are one of the last great barriers to international communication. While technology and improved transportation have made the means of talking with and traveling to far-off lands so much easier, there’s still a giant hurdle when two people literally speak different languages. Become a true citizen of the world and help make for a […]

The Transportation Safety Administration is considering implementing a new national policy that would require passengers to remove books from their bags at airport checkpoints, like they do laptops. And given the administration’s reputation for religious profiling, the procedure could be used to violate passengers’ First Amendment rights.
A Noah’s ark-themed museum in Williamstown, Kentucky was supposed to bring in a deluge of tourists to flood local businesses and leave owners awash in profits. Instead, a local news outlet reports business proprietors overwhelming say their bottom lines have remained unchanged.
An intense heat wave is engulfing the southwest U.S. this week, with temperatures so hot commercial airlines have had to cancel flights. About 38 American Airlines flights have been canceled from Phoenix, where forecasts say temperatures could reach up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit, surpassing the 118 degree threshold in which it is safe for airlines to operate.

As AL.com reports, “Alabama residents are the top visitors to the beaches of its own state, but other states follow suit, and almost all of them backed Trump: Mississippi, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Louisiana, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. The only outliers are the Clinton states of Illinois and Maryland.”
The violent ejection of a United Airlines passenger from a flight bound from Chicago to Louisville appears to have marked a long-awaited turning point. Dr. David Dao, 69, suffered a broken nose, lost two teeth and faces reconstructive sinus surgery. At last, America’s long-suffering flying public is crying as one; have you commercial airlines no shame?
You don’t have to be a frequent flyer to know that American air travel has become increasingly miserable for the public. For paying passengers, there is the discomfort of ever less legroom and ever smaller seats. The luggage space shrinks, while the cost of it climbs. If farm animals were this crammed, the PETA people would be picketing.
The problem isn’t that people paying more are getting more. That’s the way of the world. He who pays more gets a choicer cut of steak. She who pays more gets more gigabytes in the smartphone. We are consumers, and if we don’t like the deal, we don’t have to buy. Speaking for myself, I’d rather spend the extra hundreds that I’d have to shell out for a fancier seat at a four-fork restaurant in the destination city. Not that I would.
Yes, that’s me on a United Airlines flight. As is often the case, my seatmate didn’t acknowledge my existence with so much as a nod or a wan smile, but he did manage to nod off on my shoulder for 30 or so minutes before he woke up. I didn’t have the heart to shake him awake. It was kind of funny. Ironically, he didn’t bother to apologize for invading my personal space or thank me for letting him get some shut eye. But many of the things we do in airports and on planes are not so amusing.
Consumer surveys have shown that the most important factor in buying an airline ticket is price. So a 5 percent drop in domestic airfares during the first 10 months of 2015 compared with the same period last year should result in lots of happy fliers, right? Not so. Instead, complaints against airlines are on the rise.
