Will American Airlines’ New Boarding Method Save Time or Create Chaos?

For about a decade, airlines and academics have tried to figure out the fastest way to load passengers onto a plane. The less time spent on boarding, the more revenue-generating flights airlines can squeeze into a day. In fact, according to a 2008 study in the Journal of Transport Management, every minute cut on boarding can save $30 per flight.

Now American Airlines is trying out a new boarding method, and reaction is mixed.

Scrapbook Scribbles 17 – Ephemera

What??  What is “Ephemera”?

e·phem·er·a - a class of collectable items not originally intended to last for more than a short time, such as tickets, posters, postcards, or labels.

Put them in your scrapbooks.

Help Close Up Get To The Capital

When I was in the 8th Grade in Casper, Wyoming (Go East Tigers!) I went on the Close Up trip to Washington, D.C.  Kind of life changing.  I got to visit all of the big monuments, the Supreme Court, the Smithsonian...all the good stuff.  I got to see more than most people do when they visit on their own.  It was a learning experience that I still cherish.  The 8th Graders at Monforton School are trying to get their entire class on that trip.  They have raised thousands and thousands of dollars, but are still $9000 short.

Have You Ever Stumbled Upon A Treasure?

I have actually found a buck or two sometimes just walking in a parking lot.  I pick it up of course.  Even though it's only a buck, I look around quickly to see if anyone is nearby that might have dropped it.  Walking through parks I've found everything from backpacks to ballcaps, to pens.  But what this person found is a true treasure!
