For Senior Travelers, March And April Are Worst Flu Season PDF Print E-mail


The Doctors Report Illness Tracker says this year’s spread of the disease will be one of the worst in many years. The report further lists big cities are where the heaviest outbreaks are happening. They include downtown areas in San Francisco, Washington DC, New York, Miami and Boston.

If winter and springtime travels take you to heavily-populated cities in the US and elsewhere around the world, take precautions to keep you off the sick list. Whenever possible this season, avoid spending less time in the most crowded locations.

They include busy airports, subway stations, city transportation, busy restaurants and large retail stores. Carry a kit with disposable dry and soapy wet wipes, face mask and cold medicines.

 
More Passenger Guns Show Up At Airport Check-Ins PDF Print E-mail


Remember the old TV series, Have Gun, Will Travel? It sees too many people are taking that too literally these days. According to a USA Today report, last year TSA agents in U.S. airports had to confiscate nearly 4,000 illegal guns from passenger check-in bags and clothing. And the numbers keep increasing every year.

Before you decide to pack heat on your next flight, it’s best not to do it. If you have a legit reason to take firearms, be absolutely sure you know the rules that apply and have the papers to prove it. And, while checking in you notice another passenger with an unauthorized weapon or other illegal item, to insure safety for everyone on the flight, report it immediately to the nearest airport security officer.

A month after beginning her term as New York’s 14th District Rep, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-confessed Bernie Sanders socialist, released her “Green New Deal”. It threatens quote; "a massive transformation of our society.”
