    Full title:"Airline execs get called to D.C. to talk about their bad customer service" It turns out high-profile stories about customers being mistreated – like having police drag a bloodied doctor from a flight and an airline employee yelling at a passenger to hit him – get the attention of U.S. lawmakers. Top execs from the airline industry got to sit in front of U.S. House lawmakers for hours Tuesday, answering questions about “airline customer service issues,” as the agenda so wonderfully understates. The oversight hearing was being held by the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, which two of Minnesota’s...

    Our sources say the thief -- whom they say is a man -- was caught on surveillance video pulling up to the agent's driveway in an Uber at around 3 AM Thursday. The video shows the man make a beeline for the agent's car, removing a backpack with the computer inside and then walking off. As we reported, the hard drive contained Trump Tower floor plans and evacuation protocols, but the agency insists there was no classified info inside.

    Safr, a ride-hailing company for women, is planning to open for business in Boston next month. By hiring only female drivers and picking up only female passengers, the new enterprise aims to serve women who don't feel comfortable getting alone into a car with a male stranger. Here's to Safr's success — may the company encounter only happy customers. More likely, it will encounter James J. Foster. Or someone just like him.

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Salvation Army said donations for its Red Kettle campaign are way down from last year. On Tuesday, The Salavation Army said donations were down by nearly $2 million dollars in Northeast Ohio. Last year, the agency collected nearly $4.8 million over the holiday season. "Thousands of people in our community are hurting and we are committed to doing all we can to raise the necessary funds to support those needs," Major Evan Hickman, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army's Northeast Ohio Division said in a news release.

  • HILLARY AND DONALD - HEY LOSER... SAY GOODBYE TO THE SECRET SERVICE

    TMZ ^ | 11/08/16
    It's expensive as hell to protect presidential candidates like Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump... which explains why the Secret Service drops the loser FAST... but maybe not as fast as you think. The federal government shells out about $40k PER DAY to protect Hillary -- code name "Evergreen" -- and Donald -- code name "Mogul." The cost of protecting candidates in 2012 reportedly approached $113 million. There's no hard-and-fast rule on when the Secret Service stops protecting the loser. It's done on a case-by-case ... but typically, agents say sayonara to the loser about a week after the election. The...

    Where exactly do you fall on the political spectrum Secretary Clinton? Stalwart Progressive, as you told us last July? “I take a backseat to no one when you look at my record in standing up and fighting for progressive values.” A Centrist like your dear husband, as you told us last month: “You know, I get accused of being kind of moderate and center. I plead guilty.” Butt really, what difference, at this point, does it make? Especially since your opponent is a xenophobic, Islamophobic sexist pig.  *cough* *cough*I mean, Hillary could be a Marxist and apparently many former Republicans...

    Hillary Clinton announced Friday that she wants to enlist 5 million new volunteers into a “national service reserve” aimed at 18- to 30-year-olds. “What if we strengthen the culture of service in America? So it wasn’t just something we did one day a year, but it became a regular part of our lives,” she asked in a Florida rally on the topic of national service Friday. The former secretary of state argued that her volunteer plan would help combat growing self-segregation in America, where people surround themselves with people who think, talk, look and read the same news as them....

    Having followed China's biggest risk with great interest for the past year, which incidentally is not its $36 trillion in debt, nor its defaults, its zombie companies, its ponzi "wealth products", its currency, its capital outflows, its crony capitalism and corruption, nor its gargantuan capital misallocation, but the threat of a social revolution as a result of a surge in unemployment as entire zombie industries fail, that has always been true biggest risk for Beijing (something the Politburo knows very well), we found it less than surprising when last September a Chinese coal company announced it would fires 100,000.

    In a break from previous votes on the issue, the House on Thursday rejected two GOP proposals to prevent the Obama administration from enlisting young illegal immigrants to serve in the military. More than 30 Republicans with more centrist views on immigration joined all Democrats in opposing the two amendments offered to a Defense Department spending bill. The amendments failed narrowly with votes of 207-214 and 210-211, respectively.

    A heroic U.S. Marine Corps German shepherd that lost a leg sniffing out a roadside bomb in Afghanistan was awarded the world's highest honor for service dogs during a special ceremony Tuesday. Lucca, who served U.S. troops during more than 400 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan over a six-year span, received the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) Dickin Medal at the Wellington Barracks in London. She is the first Marine Corps dog to receive the medal, considered the top honor for war animals around the world.

    This Wednesday, the Bank of Canada has a decision to make.Canada's oil "dream" is dying thanks to the inexorable slide in crude prices and as the IEA made clear earlier today, the pain is set to persist for the foreseeable future as the world "drowns in oversupply.""Lower for longer" has hit the country's oil patch hard. We've spent quite a bit of time documenting the plight of Alberta, where job cuts tied to crude's slide have led directly to rising suicide rates, soaring property crime, and increased food bank usage (not to mention booming business for repo men).Adding insult...
  • The First-Ever Orthodox Vesper Service is Celebrated at the Cologne Cathedral

    On 27 November 2015, Orthodox Vesper service was celebrated for the first time in history at the Cologne Cathedral during the autumn session of the Orthodox Episcopal Conference in Germany. Over one thousand worshippers from the Orthodox communities of Cologne and the neighboring cities attended. The Cologne Cathedral is unique church; its main sanctuary was consecrated in September 1322 on the site on which the believers used to gather for prayers even in the first centuries of Christianity. The celebration of an Orthodox service became possible thanks to friendly support by Dompropst Gerd Bachner and Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki, Archbishop...

    Germany's new normal: 'People can't leave their homes' 'Migrants go into churches to disrupt service. They walk in and start to riot." [ full title ]. Media and political elites continue to spin the catastrophic invasion of Europe as some 'humanitarian' movement summarily ignoring the grave consequences of the hijrah (immigration jihad). Only a handful of news sites (like this one) are reporting on the true nature of invasion, getting the real news from the true victims - the besieged Europeans, who almost overnight, are forced to live in a war zone. ... a crime against the German people and...

    What has been happening to the town itself is not difficult to image. The reports I read speak of Muslims in the small streets of the town; I read about serious theft problems in stores where ‘refugees’ walk in, take what they want or need, and walk out again without paying. In the beginning, grocery stores called the police, but stopped doing so after they were told to write up the losses and contact someone at the local municipality to reimburse them. (I had a verbal confirmation from a wife of a German police officer … ) People in Ellwangen...

     Looks like we narrowly avoided tragedy this morning. According to a White House press release, the Secret Service just discovered President Barack Obama trying to pull his own head off, but they managed to stop him before he succeeded. Wow. This could have been really bad.According to the White House, several Secret Service agents walked into the Lincoln Bedroom at approximately 6:45 a.m. and discovered President Obama standing alone in the middle of the room with his hands wrapped around his head and trying with considerable effort to remove it from his body.The agents who witnessed the scene said that...

    M icrosoft unveiled Windows 10, its forthcoming operating system for the desktop, mobile, Xbox, and IoT late last year. The Windows 10 moniker was interesting, as ideally, Microsoft was expected to call the successor to Windows 8 (and 8.1) as Windows 9. The Redmond-based company explained why it didn’t go with ‘Windows 9’: it would have created conflict with older versions of Windows. Alright, so what will the next version of Windows be called? Windows 10, apparently. At Ignite conference earlier this week, Jerry Nixon, a Microsoft Developer Evangelist, said that Windows 10 “is the last version of Windows (so...
