Travel News & Deals Blog – Los Angeles Times, air travel

Travel News & Deals

I always read the Travel section looking for bargains and was happy to see the article about deals in Paris [“The City of Light for Less,” Money Matters, by Debbi Kickham, Nov. 26]. All the ideas were great until it came to shopping.

What I don’t understand is why a tour guide for $125 an hour is a deal. If her fee is even less than the discount I would get, I probably couldn’t afford the final price.

With a loud crack, Coconut Joe deftly whacked a fresh green coconut with his machete, slipped a straw in the opening and handed it to me.

“Bula!” he shouted, and the gathered staff enthusiastically launched into a Fijian welcoming song outside the open-air lobby of the new Kokomo Private Island resort.

Learn to access local avalanche bulletins and weather reports, recognize signs of avalanche danger and learn simple ways to help avoid it.

When, where: 7 p.m. Thursday at REI stores in Manhattan Beach, 1800 Rosecrans Ave., Suite E; and Tustin, 2962 El Camino Real.

Admission, info: Free. (310) 727-0728 for Manhattan Beach; (714) 505-0205 for Tustin.

The holiday spirit shines through with parades of lighted boats, old-fashioned Californian and Latin American holiday festivities, and a way to find a furry companion to continue the loving spirit into the new year.

The Goleta Christmas Parade will march through Old Town, creating the ambiance of a small town’s old-fashioned holiday, ending with the lighting of a holiday tree.

Travel offers more lasting pleasure than mere acquisition of things, numerous studies show, a concept that millennials seem to have made their own.

Before cellphones and social media and long before the word “millennials” signified a generation, my husband, Phil, and I tumbled to that mind-set by a serendipitous series of events.

If winter or spring in Baja California Sur sounds like a little bit of heaven, Alaska and Delta have just the ticket: $198 round-trip from LAX to San Jos de los Cabos, including all taxes and fees.

The fare, subject to availability, is for travel from Jan. 9-May 17.

There is no minimum stay, but there is one catch: You must buy your ticket by Dec. 14.

Info: Alaska, (800) 252-7522; Delta, (800) 221-1212.

    Ebola travel: South Africa bans incomers from W Africa – BBC

    Ebola travel: South Africa bans incomers from W Africa

    21 August 2014

    Image caption Kenya has not reported any cases of Ebola, but is a common transit point for African travellers

    South Africa says non-citizens arriving from Ebola-affected areas of West Africa will not be allowed into the country, with borders closed to people from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

    All non-essential outgoing travel to the affected countries has been banned.

    Senegal also said it was suspending flights with Ebola-affected countries, and closing the border with Guinea.

    Cameroon and the Ivory Coast earlier imposed travel bans, despite World Health Organization warnings not to.

    Medium-risk

    South African nationals will be allowed to re-enter the country when returning from high-risk countries, but will undergo strict screening, the health ministry said on Thursday.

    Usual screening procedures are in place for those who travel between Nigeria, Kenya and Ethiopia, which have been defined as medium-risk countries.

    Image caption Nigeria stepped up its airport screening procedures after a number of Ebola cases were confirmed

    South Africa has experienced two Ebola scares in recent weeks, involving passengers arriving from Liberia and Guinea, but the country has so far remained Ebola-free.

    Johannesburg has one of the major transit airports, connecting southern Africa with the rest of the continent. Several airlines, including British Airways and Emirates Airlines, have stopped flights to some of the affected countries.

    Meanwhile, Senegal’s interior ministry announced on Friday it was closing the land borders with Guinea “once again”.

    Senegal shut its border with Guinea for the first time in March after the virus reached the capital Conakry.

    In a statement, it said this extends to “air and sea borders for aircraft and ships from the Republic of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia”.

    AU team

    Separately, the African Union (AU) announced plans to send a special team to the four affected countries.

    The six-month-long operation, involving volunteer doctors, nurses and medical personnel, will cost about $25m (£15m) and begin immediately, the AU said in a statement.

    Aid workers and medical staff are most exposed to the virus, and have been most at risk of becoming infected. Two US aid workers were discharged from hospital on Tuesday, after recovering from the virus they contracted in Liberia.

    The supply of the experimental drug used to treat the couple, ZMapp, has been exhausted.

    As Ebola has no known cure, it is being controlled by isolating victims and those who have come into contact with them.

    Liberia’s attempt to prevent the spread of the virus by imposing quarantines has led to unrest .

    New Low-Cost Airline: PEOPLExpress Tickets Go on Sale – NBC News

    New Low-Cost Airline: PEOPLExpress Tickets Go on Sale

    The days of the airline stewardess joke — coffee, tea, or me? — are gone in more ways than one.

    Tickets from $59 went on sale Wednesday afternoon for PEOPLExpress. the new airline that seeks to capitalize on the goodwill for the name of one of the first low-budget airlines that disappeared decades ago amid industry consolidation. But with its new a la carte pricing for everything from overhead bin space to coffee, tea and water, unprepared fliers may be in for sticker shock.

    All of the airline’s flights will be in and out of its hub at Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport in Virginia, with only three destinations when it starts flying June 30. The airline’s two daily round-trip flights to Newark, New Jersey, will start with base fares from $76 each way; a daily round-trip to Boston will cost $76 each way; and its daily round-trip to Pittsburgh will cost $59 each way.

    Service to West Palm Beach, Florida, will start July 15 with one daily round-trip flight and fares priced from $89 each way.

    Flights to Atlanta will start Aug. 1 with one-way fares priced at $79. The Atlanta route will offer round-trip service once a day, except Tuesdays.

    On Aug. 28, service will start to New Orleans for $119 each way as well as to St. Petersburg/Clearwater, Florida, from $89 each way. Only three weekly round-trips will be offered to St. Petersburg and New Orleans.

    All those fares come with a serious restrictions apply asterisk as fliers will have to pay extra for services that many other airlines still offer for free.

    On board, coffee or tea will sell for $1; soft drinks water and juice will cost $2; beer will be $5; and a proper cocktail will set you back $7.

    Carry-on bags in overhead bins will cost $25 per bag per flight segment while a single checked bag will cost $20, and a second will add $25 more and if you must, $75 for a third. If you have to check a bag at the gate, that’s $50, and if it’s overweight, an extra $75 fee will apply. An exit-row seat will cost an extra $25 each way while more comfortable Living Large seats will cost an extra $59 per flight segment. Advance seat assignments cost $15 each way.

    On board, coffee or tea will sell for $1; soft drinks water and juice will cost $2; beer will be $5; and a proper cocktail will set you back $7. The good news comes on the snacks pricing: Complimentary.

    Carry-on bags will be free if they fit under your seat, a company spokesman said.

    This past Friday, the airline announced it would launch. and technically will be known as Vision Airlines, dba PEOPLExpress while it gets its full certification from the Federal Aviation Administration. It will fly leased 150-seat Boeing 737-400 aircraft operated by Las Vegas-based Vision Airlines.

    PEOPLExpress hopes to expand to 24 cities within five years, with hubs in Pittsburgh; New Orleans; San Antonio, Texas; and Atlantic City, New Jersey, CEO Jeff Erickson told CNBC in an interview last week.

    At its first hub, the airline will operate two gates on Concourse A at Newport News. Tickets can only be purchased through its website or its call center, which is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern time.

    The original PEOPLExpress began flying in 1981 and was based at Newark. It was later acquired by Continental, which was then acquired by United. The new airline has adopted the old logo, but with a new green scheme rather than the old brown, burgundy and orange. Otherwise the new airline is not affiliated with the old airline of the same name, Erickson said, except that some of the executives worked for the old airline.

    PEOPLExpress isn’t the only new airline with plans to take off this year. An all-business class airline, tentatively called Dream Jet, has announced plans to fly between Paris and New York. And Eastern Air Lines Group has filed its initial application with the U.S. Department of Transportation to begin operations.

    New US-Cuba travel and trade rules come into effect – BBC

    New US-Cuba travel and trade rules come into effect

    16 January 2015

    Media caption Cubans hope that with the lifting of trade restrictions they will be able to import rare commodities such as car parts, as Will Grant reports

    New travel and trade rules between the US and Cuba have come into effect in the biggest policy shift between the two countries in more than 50 years.

    Measures include allowing US citizens to use credit cards in Cuba and for US businesses to export some technologies.

    Americans will be able to take home up to $100 (£66) in alcohol and tobacco from Cuba.

    The move implements last month’s agreement to re-establish ties severed since 1961.

    Although the latest moves put a large dent in the US trade embargo against Cuba’s communist government, only Congress can lift it completely.

    Earlier this week, US officials said Cuba had completed the release of 53 political prisoners agreed as part of the historic deal.

    Policies ‘out of date’

    White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the changes would “immediately enable the American people to provide more resources to empower the Cuban population to become less dependent upon the state-driven economy”.

    Media caption Tomas Bilbao: “Failed policy of isolation and confrontation”

    While ordinary tourism is still banned, the new regulations will allow US citizens to travel to Cuba for any of a dozen specific reasons without first obtaining a special licence from the government.

    United Airlines announced on Thursday plans to begin flying to Cuba from its terminals in Houston and Newark.

    US credit and debit cards can be used there and there will be no more limits on how much money US citizens can spend in Cuba each day.

    About 170,000 authorised US travellers went to Cuba last year, according to the US Department of Commerce.

    US firms will also find it easier to export mobile phones and software to Cuba, as well as provide internet services there.

    Cuba currently has one of the lowest internet penetration rates in the world – estimated at about 5% by the White House.

    A change in the regulations will also allow US investments in some small businesses and agricultural operations.

    ‘Repression against Cubans’

    The thaw in relations between the two countries was announced last month in simultaneous televised speeches by President Barack Obama and his Cuban counterpart, Raul Castro.

    Image caption Americans will be able to bring home small numbers of Cuban cigars after a ban of more than 50 years

    Image caption Some of the 53 prisoners released by the Cuban authorities last week gathered to celebrate in Havana

    Next week, US Assistant Secretary of State Roberta Jacobson will lead a delegation to Cuba to discuss migration issues.

    They will be the first high-level talks since the easing of relations was announced.

    President Obama used his executive powers to ease the embargo, defying hardline critics. Analysts say Congress is unlikely to agree to lift the embargo completely any time soon.

    Cuban-American Republican Senator Marco Rubio said Mr Obama’s policy would harm ordinary Cubans.

    “This is a windfall for the Castro regime that will be used to fund its repression against Cubans,” he said in a statement.

    Super Cheap Car Rental Announces The Winner of It’s “Not So New Car Giveaway Selfie Contest”

    California Car Rental Company Gives Away a 2006 4-door 5-passenger Toyota Corolla

    Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 30, 2015

    In 2014, Super Cheap Car Rental announced their Not So New Car Giveaway Selfie Contest to offer their customers a chance to win a 2006 4-door 5-passenger Toyota Corolla. This month, they are thrilled to announce the winner. Congratulations to Sarah Jane Cass for winning the Not So New Car Giveaway!

    The Not So New Car Giveaway was held for loyal customers of Super Cheap Car Rental as a way to show their gratitude for the community that has collected around the company. Cass, who rents from Super Cheap with every visit to L.A. posted her selfie and won the prize by popular vote via Facebook. We spoke with Cass to get her thoughts on the big win and why she chooses to rent with Super Cheap.

    I had nightmares in the past with big car rental companies, explains Cass. She contrasts her experiences of renting from big corporations with the friendly, no surprise experience of Super Cheap rentals. It was what I expected. I had really lovely email conversations about pricing and what it would include before I booked. I just didn t have any surprises and having zero excess charges I think it s a really great plus, as well.

    Cass began renting from Super Cheap when she was staying with her friend in Los Angeles. She discovered that in the fast pace, expansive metropolis of LA, it was easier to drive than to take public transit for the month she was there. To avoid the exorbitant amounts of big corporate companies, her friend recommended that Cass take advantage of Super Cheap s affordable long-term rates. During that time, she learned that the benefits of Super Cheap are more than just affordability. She explained her first rental as a very lovely experience and described how they [Super Cheap agents] checked in two weeks later to see how the rental car was doing and if I had any problems. Cass has been renting from Super Cheap ever since.

    Enjoy the Corolla, Sarah!

    The 5 Best Military Travel Deals – US News #flight #and

    #best travel deals
    #

    The best air and lodging discounts for active military, family, and affiliates.

    To take advantage of Memorial Day weekend, the much-anticipated vacation period that kicks off the summer, many Americans are cutting back on entertainment spending, traveling locally, and hunting for travel deals.

    Amidst this frantic budgeting and planning, it’s easy to forget that Memorial Day is a time to commemorate our nation’s military and its service to all Americans past, present, and future. To celebrate this holiday and show our appreciation to all who have served and continue to serve our nation, we tracked down the best military travel deals.

    1. Most flexible lodging discounts for all military affiliates. Choice Hotels (which includes Comfort Inn, Quality Inn, Econolodge, and more) offers the most flexible military discounts. While many military-discount programs only apply to active military (or active military on orders), Choice extends its discounts to active and retired military personnel and their families on business or leisure. Hotels are not required to offer any military discounts nor are they required to provide specific rates to qualify for government reimbursement of travel on orders. As such, military discounts on lodging are determined on a hotel-by-hotel basis. While it is always best to double-check in advance, Choice Hotel’s discount program provides many options nationwide so that military personnel can travel more easily.

    2. Best air discounts for active military and families. Active military personnel and their dependents are allowed four free checked bags in coach (and five free checked bags in first class) at any time on Hawaiian Airlines. A valid military ID is the only requirement to qualify. Baggage fees generate billions of dollars in revenue for U.S. airlines and can cost travelers more than airfare. Given that some airlines, such as Spirit Airlines and JetBlue, do not offer any military baggage discounts, we think Hawaiian’s offer is great deal. For each passenger flying roundtrip, four checked bags would normally cost $620, according to Hawaiian’s baggage fee policy. The catch is that oversized and overweight fees may apply, so make sure each bag is smaller than 62” total (length + width + height) and weighs less than 50 pounds.

    3. Military bags that really do fly free. True to its word, bags do fly free on Southwest Airlines. For civilians, however, that only applies to two checked bags. For active military personnel with identification, Southwest waives all baggage fees. including any oversize and overweight fees. Southwest has the most liberal (and most simple) discounts. While it does not extend the offer to military families, it is the best airline when traveling with multiple bags, particularly when those bags may be bulky and/or heavy. It is important to note that other airlines may allow several bags to be checked free, but they often place restrictions on the weight and size of each bag. Overweight and oversized bags do not always qualify for military discounts on other airlines.

    4. No extra fees on car rentals . Hertz Rent-a-Car offers the most military benefits on car rentals. While all major car rental companies have military-discount programs on the base rental rate, these discounts vary. Similar to airlines, car rental companies typically make most of their profits on extra fees–not on the base rates. As such, we evaluated car rental discounts based on the number of extra fees it waived for active military. Hertz waived loss damage waiver/collision damage waiver (LDW / CDW) insurance, additional driver fees, unlimited mileage fees, underage driver fees, and space available upgrades. While Hertz was the clear winner, Avis did come in at a close second. It waives most all fees waived by Hertz, except for space available upgrades. Unfortunately, most car-rental military discounts only apply to active military. For veterans, we suggest obtaining a Veteran’s Advantage Card to access discounts at all major car rental services.

    5. Best luxury military discounts. Everyone needs some quality rest and relaxation. Hard-working military personnel are no exception. For more luxurious lodging, we recommend Hyatt Hotels Resorts. Hyatt offers special rates to military personnel as long as identification can be provided at time of check-in. The savings from Hyatt’s military discount ranges greatly, though. You may get a great deal in some locations, depending on your dates of travel. However, not all hotels will be able to provide significant discounts. Make sure to check online and call. If you do opt for more comfortable lodging, Hyatt may be your best bet for a military discount.

    Alicia Jao is the VP of Travel Media at NerdWallet, which recently launched an airline and baggage fee comparison tool to help you save money on air travel.

    Travel websites: Which online resource is best?

    (CBS News) If you’re still planning that summer vacation or have a business trip on tap, there are many ways to find help on the Internet. However, even though they’re just a click away it is not always easy to tell which site will give you the best options.

    Personal financial expert Lauren Lyons Cole, of TheStreet. made the process a little easier and shared her top picks for the best travel websites on “CBS This Morning: Saturday.”

    To get the best airfare, she suggested the Google-owned site, ITAairfare. The site is popular because it not only gives you best pricing, but is very easy to search. It has a calendar-style presentation and is great for finding cheap fares for international routes.

    If you’re looking to travel the rails, she suggests the site Man in Seat 61. Cole says that this site is great for those new to rail travel. It provides information on tickets, pricing and the best routes. It’s also a great tool for those traveling in Europe where trains are much more frequently used for travel.

    Cole gave two different options for those looking to book hotels. The website Mr. and Mrs. Smith is a catalog of reviews for boutique hotels from a couple who’ve actually stayed at each venue. This is a great resource for those looking to stay in these types of establishments.

    On the flip side, Hostelworld is a site for people who want to save a bit more money. Cole said that hostels aren’t what they used to be, and that even families can stay in them.

    “They’re a great way to save on money while you travel abroad,” she said, noting that not all hostels are exclusively for students. “There are hostels that are more family-friendly. You can get on hostelworld.com, see everything, whether it’s booked or not booked, and then read expert reviews on whether this is going to be the right fit for you.”

    If you’re looking for things to do off the beaten path, Cole suggests the site Atlas Obsucra. where you can put in a location and check out reviews on bizarre sites across the world — or in your own backyard.

    As a safety precaution, Cole recommends that any time you leave the United States you check with the U.S. State Department’s website for any urgent restrictions. as well as register your trip in case of emergency at home or abroad.

    Delta to honor extremely cheap mistake fares – CBS News #southhall

    Delta to honor extremely cheap mistake fares

    NEW YORK – Some lucky fliers capitalized on a computer glitch Thursday and scored some really cheap flights on Delta Air Lines (DAL ).

    From about 10 a.m. to noon ET, certain Delta fares on the airline’s own website and other airfare booking sites were showing up incorrectly, offering some savvy bargain hunters incredible deals. A roundtrip flight between Cincinnati and Minneapolis for February was being sold for just $25.05 and a roundtrip between Cincinnati and Salt Lake City for $48.41. The correct price for both of those fares is more than $400.

    Trebor Banstetter, a spokesman for the Atlanta-based airline, said the problem has been fixed but “Delta will honor any fares purchased at the incorrect price.”

    Jackie Fanelli, 27, learned about the super cheap fares from a friend’s Facebook page. She attempted to purchase a $98 roundtrip first-class ticket from her home city of Baltimore to Honolulu on Priceline.com but the transaction didn’t process before the deal was shut down.

    “It was too good to be true,” Fanelli said. “I try to go away every other year and this was not the year.”

    Delta’s website was having lingering problems from the increased traffic Thursday afternoon.

    “It looks like Delta’s programmers had a little too much eggnog yesterday,” joked George Hobica, founder of AirfareWatchDog.com, which promotes airfare sales.

    It’s likely that the airline tried to tweak its fares with a $10 or $20 system-wide change and a junior programmer made a mistake or two, he said.

    “People just go wild. People have been bragging about booking six first-class tickets to Hawaii,” Hobica said. “People hate the airlines so much that when this happens, they say: I’m going to get back at you for the time you broke my suitcase and didn’t pay for it.”

    Other airlines have faced the same issue. In September United Airlines experienced an error in filing fares to its computer system. Many customers got tickets for $5 or $10, paying only the cost of the Sept. 11 security fee.

    New Department of Transportation regulations, aimed at truth in advertising, require airlines to honor any mistake fares offered.

    13 Secrets for Finding Cheaper Airfare

    The cheapest flights are 3 p.m. on Tuesdays. Can’t make that? Try these insider booking tips.

    With the holiday travel season just around the corner, you’re probably wondering how you can get in on a good deal. After all, airfare is undoubtedly one of the most expensive components of any domestic or international travel plan, and prices can vary wildly at times – from manageable to downright cost-prohibitive. The good news is, there are still a few secrets left when it comes to finding airfare you can afford. And, even better, the hassle of searching might be less labor intensive than you ever realized.

    If you’re searching for airfare you can truly afford, try these simple tips before pulling the trigger:

    Book 49 days in advance. CheapAir.com combed through data on over 11,000 domestic flights to discover the optimum number of days in advance you should book airfare. According to the numbers, the sweet spot for most airfare is around 49 days, or seven weeks, in advance.

    Book further out around the holidays. The same CheapAir.com study from last year showed that the optimum booking time was slightly earlier for peak travel times. For example, the cheapest flights around Thanksgiving were booked 96 days, or 14 weeks, in advance.

    Fly on Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday. According to FareCompare.com, the cheapest days to fly in the U.S. are the days less popular with consumers. And apparently, those days are Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday.

    Avoid popular flying days. The concept of supply and demand applies to many things, including airfare. That’s why flying on popular flying days, such as Friday or Sunday, will set you back more. If you want to save, avoid these days and opt for the less popular travel days instead.

    Consider flying very early … or very late. Most people don’t want to fly at the crack of dawn or past their bedtime. Because of this, early and late flights are typically far cheaper than flights during normal business hours.

    Book your flight on a Tuesday. FareCompare.com reports that the cheapest flights are typically at 3 p.m. on Tuesdays. Even if you don’t book your flight then, it never hurts to look.

    Book two one-way flights. Round-trip flights are typically cheaper to book, but that isn’t always the case. Before you sign up for a round-trip flight, price out options for two one-way bookings and consider two different airlines. It might be cheaper that way, and you’ll never know unless you compare.

    Accept a layover. Nonstop flights are typically the most convenient – and therefore the most expensive. Instead of choosing the easy option, look for flights with at least one layover. Chances are, this little inconvenience will add up to big savings.

    Take advantage of the Internet. The Internet is a treasure trove of information if you’re looking for ways to save on airfare. For starters, use a fare comparing search engine like Kayak.com, or even Google’s Flight Search. Shop around online until you find the best deal.

    Follow airlines on social media. Before committing yourself to a certain flight at a specific price, follow your favorite airlines on social media and sign up for their mailing lists. Doing so could mean hearing about insider deals and saving even more.

    Sign up for a co-branded rewards credit card. Many airlines offer a co-branded credit card that can help you earn airline miles, free checked baggage and more. They may also offer a hefty sign-up bonus just for signing up and spending a certain amount of money within a specific time frame.

    Join frequent flier programs. In addition to getting an airline rewards credit card, you can sign up for that airline’s frequent flier program. This can help you earn free miles for airfare you’re purchasing anyway.

    Travel to a different airport. Airfare at airports within 100 miles of each other can vary drastically, making it increasingly important to consider airfare to and from different cities and towns. The cost of driving to an airport an hour away could end up being far less than the difference in your airline ticket.

    Trying one of these tips could lead to hundreds of dollars in savings. but applying all of them could mean saving even more. So start searching online for deals, and consider traveling during off-peak times and from airports within 100 miles of your home. And don’t forget to sign up for offers from your favorite airlines; you never know when the perfect deal could come along.

    And no matter what, don’t give up. The ideal airfare is out there somewhere – all you have to do is find it.

    Greek debt relief closer than ever but creditors must act, Greek

    Greek debt relief ‘closer than ever’ but creditors must act, Greek prime minister says

    ATHENS Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras kept up his demand for debt relief from international lenders on Tuesday, saying Athens was close to securing a solution to ease its debt mountain but that creditors must meet there commitments.

    Greece wants to wrap up negotiations with the lenders — the European Union and International Monetary Find — on reforms and on debt relief this month.

    It needs another tranche of bailout money, wants to qualify for inclusion in the European Central Bank’s bond-buying program, and seeks to return to bond markets immediately afterwards.

    “We are closer than ever to a substantial solution on debt relief,” said Tsipras reiterating that Greece had already agreed to apply more austerity after its current bailout expires and it was its lenders’ turn to fulfill their promises of discussions about debt relief.

    “Τhe ball is no longer in our court,” he told reporters referring to lenders’ statements on debt relief in past years.

    Despite Greece’s recent statements and a bailout review agreement at staff level, sources close to the lenders have been less optimistic seeing talks on debt relief lasting longer than May.

    This is because of sharp differences between the IMF and Germany, Europe’s paymaster, over the Greece’s fiscal targets. The former says Greece’s target and debt are unsustainable; the latter, with an election coming, is less willing to drop its hard line.

    After six months of tense talks, Athens and the lenders reached a deal last week on a set of additional reforms the country needs to implement in 2019-20, two years after its current, 86-billion euro bailout program expires.

    Greece wants euro zone finance ministers to approve the reforms’ deal at a scheduled Eurogroup meeting on May 22 — a key condition for unlocking vital loans — but also agree on a formula to make its debt sustainable in the medium-term and long term.

    Debt sustainability is key for the European Central Bank and the Washington-based IMF, which participated financially in the country’s first two rescue packages, but has yet to announce whether it will join Greece’s current program, the third since 2010.

    Greek lawmakers are expected to vote on the new austerity package by May 18, before euro zone finance ministers assess the country’s progress.

    Tsipras, who is sagging in opinion polls and whose term expires in 2019, controls 153 lawmakers in the 300-seat parliament and he is expected to pass the bill.

    But the delays in the negotiations have slowed projected economic growth and have exacerbated reform fatigue after seven years of austerity hurting the government’s popularity further.

    Asked whether he was considering a cabinet reshuffle, Tsipras ruled it out.

    “We are not considering it. Our aim now is to speed up work as much as we can,” he said during a visit at the education ministry, where he announced a planned education reform.

    Medical Bills Are the Biggest Cause of US Bankruptcies: Study #health

    Medical Bills Are the Biggest Cause of US Bankruptcies: Study

    Stigur Karlsson | E+ | Getty Images

    Bankruptcies resulting from unpaid medical bills will affect nearly 2 million people this year—making health care the No. 1 cause of such filings, and outpacing bankruptcies due to credit-card bills or unpaid mortgages, according to new data. And even having health insurance doesn’t buffer consumers against financial hardship.

    The findings are from NerdWallet Health, a division of the price-comparison website. It analyzed data from the U.S. Census, Centers for Disease Control, the federal court system and the Commonwealth Fund, a private foundation that promotes access, quality and efficiency in the health-care system.

    “A lot of Americans are struggling with medical bills,” said NerdWallet Health Vice President Christina LaMontagne.

    NerdWallet estimates that households containing 1.7 million people will file for bankruptcy protection this year.

    Even outside of bankruptcy, about 56 million adults—more than 20 percent of the population between the ages of 19 and 64—will still struggle with health-care-related bills this year, according to NerdWallet Health.

    And if you think only Americans without health insurance face financial troubles, think again. NerdWallet estimates nearly 10 million adults with year-round health-insurance coverage will still accumulate medical bills that they can’t pay off this year.

    High-deductible insurance plans requiring consumers to pay more out-of-pocket costs are a challenge for many households.

    “With an average American family bringing home $50,000 in income, a high medical bill and a high-deductible insurance plan can quickly become something they are unable to pay,” LaMontagne said. “If you have an out-of-pocket maximum of $5,000 or $10,000, that’s really tough,” he said.

    The analysis of rising health costs is the first of its kind for NerdWallet.

    Obamacare ‘Not a Panacea’

    With millions buried under medical bills, more insured under the Affordable Care Act will not completely solve that problem, LaMontagne said. While the ACA’s reforms will indeed give more people coverage, NerdWallet’s data shows that millions of people with year-round, full coverage are still overwhelmed by medical bills, she said.

    “I don’t think Obamacare is going to get rid of the situation,” LaMontagne said. “The data suggests that already-insured Americans are struggling. With the expansion of insurance, it doesn’t seem like that problem will go away entirely. It’s not a panacea.”

    The number of medically related bankruptcies is slightly less than the rate of recent years. Despite the anticipated 2013 dip, such bankruptcies represent about three out of every five filings.

    “A lot of Americans probably think about bankruptcy as coming from unpaid credit-card debt or mortgages,” LaMontagne said. “But the root cause of all those troubles may well be medical bills.”

    Handling High Medical Costs Friday, 6 Feb 2009 | 10:16 PM ET

    Not surprisingly, more than 11 million people will take on additional credit-card debt to cover mounting medical bills, LaMontagne said. Because credit cards often charge high interest rates for unpaid balances, debt only mounts, creating a vicious cycle for consumers.

    Meanwhile, NerdWallet found, 1 5 million people will deplete their savings to cover medical bills. Another 10 million will be unable to pay for necessities such as rent, food and utilities because of those bills.

    Skipping Prescription Medications

    When their savings are gone and their credit cards are maxed out, stretched consumers take the drastic step of cutting back on prescription medications.

    More than 25 million people are skipping doses, taking less medication or delaying refilling prescriptions to save money, NerdWallet found.

    “That statistic is actually quite troubling,” LaMontagne said. Delaying needed medication is a short-term fix that only triggers more health problems in the long term, she said.

    Official Photos and Info: Lexus UX Concept – News – Car

    Lexus UX Concept: Preview to the Smallest Lexus SUV

    With countless software companies proclaiming they know how to build better cars, we were relieved to find Lexus has built an actual car rather than a user experience, which is what UX stands for in the tech community. Instead, the Lexus UX concept is our first good look at the luxury brand s subcompact crossover that will join the growing fray of shrunken, premium SUVs that includes the BMW X1, Audi Q3, Mercedes-Benz GLA, and Infiniti QX30.

    Compared with the smallest Lexus crossover today, the NX. the UX is 9.1 inches stubbier, 5.0 inches lower, 1.2 inches wider, and sports a 0.8 inch tighter wheelbase. Crafted by the company s French design center, the exterior appears conventional only because Lexus has pre-conditioned us with ever-crazier slits, zigzags, spindles, and other exaggerated surface textures across its entire lineup. Just as how the Oxford English Dictionary adds trendy words each year, the UX applies subtle changes to the L-finesse design language that are as much YOLO as they are practical.

    The twisted grille is toothier and more three-dimensional, with the L badge serving as a kind of magnet for dozens of skewed V-marks converging toward it. The L-shaped daytime running lamps seamlessly connect to thin headlights, while vertical air vents glow imposingly beneath. Intricate, sprocket-like 21-inch wheels poke from oversize U-shaped fender extensions that break up the otherwise tall body; each of the wheels 18 spokes appears to fade into the tire sidewalls, a clever visual trick that recalls airless tires. Arching fenders rise far above the creased hood and direct the eye toward the slim tail, where jagged LED taillamps poke out almost past the bumper. Lexus notes that the roof rails, A-pillars, and side-view camera housings form one continuous line, although we re more impressed with the A-pillar transparency and their unequal-length fins that trace up to the roof like mini staircases. (For the record, Volvo introduced transparent A-pillars on the SCC concept in 2001, and the idea has since gone nowhere.)

    Yet with all this fanfare, the UX is proportioned more like a modern Isuzu VehiCROSS than the silly, space-inefficient four-door coupe look affixed to every German designer s desk. From the side, there s some hint of the Range Rover Evoque with its minimized greenhouse, and what glass peeks through the purple body is electrochromic, an expensive (and Magic, in Mercedes nomenclature) method of tinting windows. The impossibly small rear doors also suggest Lexus could be whipping up both two- and four-door versions of the UX, perhaps to battle similar Evoque models. Another two-door, especially one that affords some rear headroom, would be welcome in this segment.

    Inside, the UX introduces a new kind of user experience. While it wouldn t seem comfortable to sit on stretched rubber bands, Lexus claims this flexible, open arrangement (called the Kinetic Seat ) better contours to the pelvis and torso and helps reduce head motions while driving. For what it s worth, the rear seat in a light cream color to offset the dark violet seats up front is a conventional bench.

    Aside from the see-through A-pillars and side-view camera displays sitting flush with the door panels, the real excitement comes from holograms, or at least displays designed to resemble holograms. The instrument panel is made to look deeper and farther away than it really is. The same effect applies to the central infotainment display, which has been reconfigured using carousel-style menus. More screens sit under a covered center console with touch-capacitive buttons, along with what we can only hope is a more intuitive touchpad than Lexus uses today to operate the main screen functions. A second touchpad sits on the front passenger s door armrest. And if the UX interior s bisecting lines and holograms become too overwhelming, the passenger can detach a wireless speaker from the dash and run off into the real world for a break from it all.

    As for what motivates the UX, Lexus offers no clues. Earlier this year, the company trademarked several alphanumeric model designations UX200, UX250, and UX250h so we can only assume the production car will carry over the NX s 2.0-liter four-cylinder and hybrid-electric powertrains. If you re imagining a chopped-down NX without this concept s excessive fripperies, you re probably not far off. And neither is Lexus, which would like to dominate the sales charts in yet another luxury-SUV segment as soon as possible.

    Nobody making federal minimum wage can afford a two-bedroom apartment #make


    #

    No full-time minimum-wage worker can afford a 2-bedroom apartment in any US state

    The absolute least that an employer is legally allowed to pay an employee for an hour’s work varies across the country. but one fact remains constant: In no state does working 40 hours a week for minimum wage enable a person to rent a median two-bedroom apartment.

    That’s according to new research by the National Low Income Housing Coalition covered by T he Washington Post. Across the country, it reports, even full-time workers would have to make about or more than twice as much to afford a typical home.

    In states such as Alaska, Washington, Colorado, Florida, Virginia, Illinois and most of the Northeast, workers would have to make over $20 an hour. Workers in California, D.C. and Hawaii are the hardest hit by the price of housing: They need to earn a whopping $30, $33 or $35 an hour, respectively, to afford a two-bedroom.

    The federal minimum wage is $7.25.

    Some renters can still find individual apartments that charge less than the median rent and so remain relatively affordable. The trouble is, they are often substandard or unsafe and, regardless, there aren’t nearly enough of those to meet demand. Scarcity has been an issue for decades .

    Likewise, not all workers are subject to the federal minimum wage. Some are, as five states, including Mississippi and Louisiana, have no official minimum wage, and two more, Georgia and Wyoming, have a minimum wage of $5.15, or about $10 less an hour than full-time employees would need to make to be able to afford a two-bedroom. In those places, the federal minimum wage applies, with a general exception for workers who receive tips.

    By contrast, states such as Connecticut and California mandate that even entry-level workers receive about $10 an hour, while cities and, increasingly, states such as Illinois and New York are phasing in a new minimum wage of $15 an hour. That minimum supersedes the federal one.

    The Fight for $15, a worldwide effort to raise wages and strengthen unions, has successfully led to better pay in many places since its launch in 2012. and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour is now part of the Democratic Party platform. According to these numbers, however, even that wouldn’t make housing affordable.

    As things stand, an American making the federal minimum wage of $7.25 would have to work 94.5 hours a week, or more than two full-time jobs, to afford a typical two-bedroom rental.

    The Post notes that “many of the occupations projected to add the most jobs by 2024 pay too little to cover rent. These are customer service representatives, personal care aides, nursing assistants, home health aides, retail salespeople, home health and food service workers who make, on average, between $10 and $16 an hour. as a result, more than 11.2 million families end up spending more than half their paychecks on housing,” money they could otherwise direct toward transportation, education, food, clothing or savings.

    In a preface to the report. U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn. writes, “Each year, Congress spends about $200 billion to help house American families. A full three-fourths of these resources go to help subsidize the homes of the richest families through the mortgage interest deduction and other homeownership tax benefits.”

    Meanwhile, the report points out, federal funding for housing assistance programs has actually declined by three percent in the last seven years.

    Millennials are making a big mistake by not owning their homes, says one financial expert 12:22 PM ET Mon, 24 April 2017 | 00:49

    Some business owners argue that raising the minimum wage will lead to higher prices for consumers, and some economists argue that it could depress job growth or even end up eliminating positions as it leads to more automation. A comprehensive 2016 study from the National Employment Law Project, however, found that the economists’ fears aren’t justified.

    Its authors declare that there is “no correlation between federal minimum-wage increases and lower employment levels, even in the industries that are most impacted by higher minimum wages. To the contrary, in the substantial majority of instances (68 percent) overall employment increased after a federal minimum-wage increase.”

    And a 2017 poll found that bipartisan majorities of Americans now favor raising the minimum wage.

    Democrats seek suspension of Jared Kushner s security clearance, pending Russia

    Democrats seek suspension of Jared Kushner’s security clearance, pending Russia probe

    WATCH Jared Kushner meets with Netanyahu on first day of Middle East trip

    House Democrats are raising concerns about the security clearance held by President Trump ’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner. saying suspicions about his contacts with Russian officials should be enough to suspend his access to sensitive information.

    “When there are credible allegations that employees may be unfit to continue accessing classified information, security clearances are supposed to be suspended while the allegations are investigated,” wrote Rep. Elijah Cummings. the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, in a letter to White House chief of staff Reince Priebus. “Mr. Kushner reportedly failed to disclose contacts with dozens of foreign officials on his security clearance application.”

    Aides to Kushner did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the letter from Cummings and the other Democrats on the Oversight Committee, which was accompanied by a demand for Kushner’s security clearance application and for “all documents and communications referring or relating to Mr. Kushner’s contacts or communications with Russian government officials or business representatives.” Cummings’ letter is the latest in a drumbeat of efforts by Democrats in Congress. More than 40 members wrote with similar concerns in May.

    A White House spokesperson declined to comment.

    As a senior adviser to Trump and as someone tasked with helping orchestrate Middle East peace talks, Kushner likely has access to highly sensitive intelligence. According to the letter, his top-secret clearance is temporary, pending a routine screening by the FBI.

    The FBI has not identified Kushner as a target of its investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, recently taken over by special counsel Robert Mueller. Sources familiar with a parallel probe by the Senate Intelligence Committee, however, have confirmed to ABC News that Kushner’s previously undisclosed meetings with Russian officials have drawn the attention of its investigators. Senate investigators have requested documents from Kushner and are negotiating with him to arrange an interview. Through his attorney, Kushner has indicated his desire to cooperate with that probe.

    The challenge to Kushner’s security clearance comes as the White House is facing questions about its decision to continue to allow retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn to access to the nation’s most carefully guarded secrets when he served as Trump’s national security adviser, even after Department of Justice officials warned that Flynn may have been susceptible to blackmail by Russian diplomats. The New York Times reported Wednesday that, for three weeks before he was fired, Flynn sat in on the most sensitive intelligence briefings in the White House.

    He has denied anything improper occurred during his contacts with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. and sources close to Flynn have told ABC News they consider it ludicrous that anyone could have concluded he was vulnerable to blackmail.

    Cummings, however, takes issue with the administration’s decision to continue allowing Flynn access to sensitive information after Justice Department lawyers notified the White House of their concerns.

    “Concerns about Gen. Flynn’s false statements — as well as his concealment of communications with the Russian ambassador — raised obvious security concerns that should have resulted in an immediate suspension of his clearance while an investigation of the allegations proceeded,” Cummings wrote.

    Kushner’s lawyer Jamie Gorelick. a deputy attorney general under Bill Clinton, said that on Jan. 18, Kushner filed an extensive security questionnaire known as the SF86, with an offer the next day to the FBI to provide omitted details of his Russian contacts during his background check interview by agents in person, The New York Times reported.

    The SF86 requires applicants for security clearances to disclose — under criminal penalty for significant omissions — minute details of their life, including specific dates and purposes of foreign travel and any “close and/or continuing contact” with foreign nationals or receipt of foreign payments in the previous seven years.

    The fact that Kushner received an interim security clearance despite failing to disclose all his contacts with the Russian ambassador and a Kremlin-owned bank is very unusual, according to one legal expert.

    “It’s highly out of the ordinary for how it’s supposed to be done,” said Bradley Moss, a national security lawyer who handles cases involving intelligence community workers’ clearance problems.

    Investigators conducting government background checks for those applying for top-secret clearances understand that people make mistakes on their SF86 disclosures and sometimes have to submit supplemental information, but Moss said he has never heard of an interim clearance being given to anyone who failed to disclose contacts with a foreign government.

    “If Kushner’s clearance is still being adjudicated and there is this red flag of his failure to properly report numerous contacts with foreign government officials on his SF86, that would be major matter of concern, in terms of him being in charge of this mission to the Middle East,” Moss said.

    Cummings and other House Democrats have no power to force the administration to rescind Kushner’s clearance. Trump has final word on who gets a security clearance when it comes to his staff, as the chief executive, by law, is the ultimate authority.

    Protection of personal data – European Commission #europa,european #commission,institutions,news,calendar,organisation,commissioners,president,recruitment,contact,services,european #union,eu


    #

    Protection of personal data

    In January 2012, the European Commission proposed a comprehensive reform of data protection rules in the EU .

    On 4 May 2016, the official texts of the Regulation and the Directive have been published in the EU Official Journal in all the official languages. While the Regulation will enter into force on 24 May 2016, it shall apply from 25 May 2018. The Directive enters into force on 5 May 2016 and EU Member States have to transpose it into their national law by 6 May 2018 .

    The objective of this new set of rules is to give citizens back control over of their personal data, and to simplify the regulatory environment for business. The data protection reform is a key enabler of the Digital Single Market which the Commission has prioritised. The reform will allow European citizens and businesses to fully benefit from the digital economy.

    Whenever you open a bank account, join a social networking website or book a flight online, you hand over vital personal information such as your name, address, and credit card number.

    What happens to this data? Could it fall into the wrong hands? What rights do you have regarding your personal information?

    Everyone has the right to the protection of personal data.

    Under EU law, personal data can only be gathered legally under strict conditions, for a legitimate purpose. Furthermore, persons or organisations which collect and manage your personal information must protect it from misuse and must respect certain rights of the data owners which are guaranteed by EU law.

    Every day within the EU, businesses, public authorities and individuals transfer vast amounts of personal data across borders. Conflicting data protection rules in different countries would disrupt international exchanges.

    Top 10 fastest cars in the world

    10. Lamborghini Aventador

    What are the fastest automobiles on the planet? CBS Miami took a spin and crunched the numbers for us, producing this list of the slickest speedsters on the road. You may be surprised by some of the names on this list, but one thing that is no surprise is the inclusion of Lamborghini. The venerable Italian carmaker has a reputation for speed, and their Aventador is the best of the bunch. The Lamborghini Aventador can reach a speed of 220 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 secs.

    10. Lamborghini Aventador

    The Lamborghini Aventador can reach a speed of 220 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 secs, according to CBS Miami. In addition to speed, the Aventador was recently named the best luxury car on the market by the high-class lifestyle magazine “The Robb Report.”

    9. Aston Martin one-77

    British automaker Aston Martin is known for its style. But they’re no slouch in the speed department either. The Aston Martin One-77 can reach a speed of 220 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds.

    9. Aston Martin one-77

    Aston Martin One-77 can reach a speed of 220 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds. With 750-horsepower in a V12 engine, it’s no surprise that the One-77 makes it on CBS Miami’s list.

    8. Noble M600

    Another British car designer makes the list in the eighth position. Though perhaps not as famous as Aston Martin, Noble Automotive makes up for their lack or recognition with pure horsepower. The Noble M600, seen here, can reach a speed of 225 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds.

    8. Noble M600

    The Noble M600 can reach a speed of 225 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds, according to CBS Miami. Expensive and exclusive, only fifty M600s see production every year.

    7. Gumpert Apollo

    It was only a matter of time before a German company made the list. Gumpert might not be the first name that comes to mind when thinking about German automakers, but these specialty supercar stylists are the only to make the list. The Gumpert Apollo, seen here, can reach a speed of 225 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.0 seconds.

    7. Gumpert Apollo

    The Gumpert Apollo can reach a speed of 225 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.0 seconds, according to CBS Miami.

    Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur is the official name for the carmaker. As you can probably guess, they are dedicated to manufacturing sports cars.

    6. Zenvo ST1

    One doesn’t usually think of Scandinavia when talking about high-performance driving machines. But getting through this list may change your mind. Hailing from Denmark is the Zenvo ST1. The Zenvo ST1 can reach a speed of 233 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds.

    6. Zenvo ST1

    The Zenvo ST1 can reach a speed of 233 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds, according to CBS Miami. It’s one of the fastest cars in the world. But is it even the fastest car in Scandinavia?

    5. Koenigsegg CCX

    Just a short hop north from Zenvo is the Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg. These carmakers deal only in hyper-fast, hyper-expensive speed machines.The Koenigsegg CCX can reach a speed of 245 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds.

    5. Koenigsegg CCX

    The Koenigsegg CCX can reach a speed of 245 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds. Expect to pay the price for all this speed. Koenigsegg supercars are some of the most expensive in the world.

    4. 9ff GT9-R

    One way to make a super-fast car is to take one that’s already zippy and improve on it. The Porsche 911 is a classic example of speed and style. German car tuning company 9ff took a 911 and made it even faster. The 9ff GT9-R can reach a speed of 257 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds.

    4. 9ff GT9-R

    The 9ff GT9-R can reach a speed of 257 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds, according to CBS Miami. One sure way to increase speed is to reduce weight. The GT9-R looks like a million bucks on the outside, but with all the amenities stripped from the interior you may be in for a bumpy ride.

    3. Koenigsegg Agera R

    Koenigsegg against makes the list with another super-charged supercar. The Koenigsegg Agera R can reach a speed of 260 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds.

    3. Koenigsegg Agera R

    The Koenigsegg Agera R can reach a speed of 260 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds. The Agera pumps out over 900 horsepower, and its carbon fiber body makes it lightweight, aerodynamic and very pretty to look at.

    2. Hennessey Venom GT

    Another example of taking something that works and making it better. Houston, Texas-based car tuners Hennessey Performance Engineering took a (heavily modified) Lotus Exige chassis, threw in a (heavily modified) Corvette engine, and kept tweaking until they had the Venom GT. The Hennessey Venom GT can reach a speed of 260 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds.

    Credit: Joe Windsor-Williams/VenomGT.com

    2. Hennessey Venom GT

    The Hennessey Venom GT can reach a speed of 260 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds, according to CBS Miami. These cars can fly, but are they worth the wait? Only ten Venom GTs see production every year, so you’ll have to sign up soon to lock down your next supercar.

    Credit: Joe Windsor-Williams/VenomGT.com

    1. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

    We finish the list where we started: Italy. Bugatti is a brand synonymous with speed and style (and price). The fastest car in the world, Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, can reach a speed of 267 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.4 seconds.

    Credit: Feng Li/Getty Images

    1. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

    The fastest car in the world, Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, can reach a speed of 267 mph, and go from 0 to 60 in 2.4 seconds. The Bugatti Veyron tops lists wherever it goes. It comes in a variety of styles, but it’s only the Super Sport (which, as its name suggests, is built for pure speed) which makes in on CBS Miami’s list of the ten fastest cars in the world.

    How to Transfer a Credit Card Balance

    Here is what you need to know before and after a credit card balance transfer.

    Credit card balance transfers can be an invaluable tool for managing credit card debt. This tactic allows cardholders to move their debt from a card with a high interest rate to one with a lower interest rate, or no interest charges at all.

    While it’s not inherently complex to transfer a credit card balance, there are still several important things that cardholders need to be aware of before, during, and after.

    Before You Transfer a Credit Card Balance

    1. Make sure you keep up with all of your payments. This will allow you to maintain excellent credit and find a balance transfer offer with the best possible terms. The right card may be one you already have with a lower interest rate than the one you are using, or it may be a new card with a 0% APR promotional balance transfer offer. In fact, you may be able to get a promotional financing offer from one of your existing accounts, possibly in the form of a convenience check.

    2. Understand all of the terms and conditions of the balance transfer. Know what the card’s credit limit is, its interest rate on balance transfers, and what the balance transfer fee will be. Balance transfer fees are typically 3 percent of the amount transferred, but not always. Chase Slate currently has the only 0 percent APR promotional balance transfer offer with no balance transfer fee, although others can have fees as high as 5 percent.

    In the case of promotional financing offers, learn how long you have to complete a qualifying transfer, and the length of the promotional financing period. Typically, promotional balance transfer offers must be completed within 30 days to four months of the account opening, and can last from between six and 18 months. Keep in mind that even though the terms might not explicitly say so, banks will not allow balance transfers between their own accounts.

    3. Make a plan. Come up with a sound financial plan for paying down your debt. otherwise your balance transfer is just another form of postponing your obligations.

    Making the Transfer

    Contact the bank that you are transferring the balance to and ask to perform a balance transfer. Be prepared to give the account information for the other card, and the total amount you want transferred.

    After the Transfer

    Continue to make at least the minimum payment required from the old credit card, and if you have paid your entire debt, make sure to get a statement from your bank. However, keep your old account open in order to maintain a low credit utilization ratio. which will help your credit score.

    Most importantly, stick to the plan that you created to reduce your debt. Recognize that it probably will not be possible to take advantage of promotional financing offers over and over again.

    By understanding some of the nuances of balance transfers, cardholders can use these offers to save as much money as possible on their credit card interest charges.

    About The Implode-o-Meter

    ML-Implode.com was created in late 2006 to raise the alarm about the then-burgeoning implosion of the historically-epic housing and economic bubble. Started as a modest web page created by founder Aaron Krowne, this objective was achieved by, uniquely, tracking the in-progress implosion of independent mortgage lending companies then being ignored by a mainstream media in denial of even the existence of the housing bubble. At that time, you were more likely to hear a partyline of “housing always goes up” and juvenile jeers of “bubbles are for bathtubs” from TV’s talking heads, than of even slight concern about a clearly-overextended, already-frozen housing market.

    Operated as a broadly-open community forum, ML-Implode quickly took the lead in news about the mortgage implosion and subprime crisis, as industry professionals flocked to the site to share and find out the latest. The site even became, in part, a whistleblower platform, fighting (and winning) half a dozen lawsuits to defend the right of its contributors to post about corruption and malfeasance in financial companies, and be able to do so confidentially.

    Despite its initial incarnation being rendered insolvent by these frivolous legal attacks, ML-Implode continues today in a stripped-down, lean-and-mean embodiment, remaining dedicated to tracking the fallout of the 2007-2008 credit crisis. This mission includes keeping tabs on recession/depressionary conditions, the policy response to the economic downturn and continued financial instability, the Fed and other global central bank interventions (including “ZIRP” and quantitative easing), actions and reforms of the monetary authorities, market manipulation (official and private sector), all global geopolitical conflict with economic roots, the evolution of the banking and monetary system (including dollar-alternative “reserve currencies”, gold, silver, and bitcoin and other “virtual currencies”), the effect of the economic turmoil on society, basic themes of economic fairness and justice, and much more.

    We continue to doggedly watch all of these interconnected topic areas, daily picking the most important stories and commentaries, and bringing them together in a convenient and comprehensible form on this site.

    Manchester Police And Hospital To Launch Heroin Recovery Initiative Called HOPE

    Manchester Police And Hospital To Launch Heroin Recovery Initiative Called HOPE

    MANCHESTER — Police will team with Manchester Memorial Hospital, volunteer coaches and other community partners to help heroin addicts find paths to recovery outside the criminal justice system.

    Modeled on a program pioneered in Gloucester, Mass. Manchester’s HOPE (Heroin/Opioid Prevention Education) initiative is to begin next month, police Chief Marc Montminy said Tuesday at a meeting of the town’s board of directors.

    Police will guide addicts to recovery, rather than court and jail, Montminy said. Officers will reach out to heroin users, asking if they’ve had enough of the physical decay, family estrangement and loss of livelihood and self-respect that typically affect addicts. Those who agree to seek treatment will be taken directly to Manchester Memorial Hospital’s emergency room after surrendering any drugs or needles. If they are simply users, Montminy said, they will not be arrested.

    Arrests have not slowed the rising death toll. Last year, 14 people died in Manchester of heroin overdoses, and I have every reason to believe that 2016 will be worse, Montminy said. Currently, police see an average of one overdose each week and more than one death each month, Montminy said.

    As he and Mayor Jay Moran noted, heroin abuse is a state and national epidemic. Deaths from heroin-related overdoses totaled 10,574 nationwide in 2014, more than three times the number in 2010. Heroin-related deaths soared in Connecticut from 174 in 2012 to 416 last year. Fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid often added to heroin, has fueled the surge, state Medical Examiner Dr. James Gill said. If current rates hold, more than 330 people will die from fentanyl alone in the state this year, Gill said.

    Gloucester’s Angel Initiative inspired Manchester’s HOPE program. Launched last year, the program made police the point agency in moving addicts directly into treatment. Addicts are allowed to surrender any drugs and needles they have with the understanding that they will not face arrest and that police and community volunteers called angels will help them emerge from hellish lives.

    Manchester officers know many of the local addicts and see them daily, Montminy said. For those seeking treatment, police will check for any outstanding warrants and will continue to arrest drug dealers and anyone caught committing a crime, Montminy said. All officers will receive about four hours of training before the HOPE initiative begins, he said.

    Heroin kills more people in Connecticut with each passing year. With heroin-related deaths expected to climb above 380 in 2015, someone is now dying every day. But it is an addiction that defies simple answers. The dead are young and old, rich and poor, from cities and suburbs. It is an insidious.

    Heroin kills more people in Connecticut with each passing year. With heroin-related deaths expected to climb above 380 in 2015, someone is now dying every day. But it is an addiction that defies simple answers. The dead are young and old, rich and poor, from cities and suburbs. It is an insidious.

    Eastern Connecticut Health Network, the hospital’s parent organization, will be the program’s clinical gateway, Montminy said. Medical professionals will evaluate incoming addicts, determine their needs and provide a bed if necessary, Dr. Robert Carroll, head of ECHN’s emergency department, said at the town directors meeting.

    Most addicts, however, can be treated as outpatients, either with methadone or suboxone, Dr. Nedson Campbell, an addiction treatment specialist at the hospital, told directors. Asked after the meeting if ECHN has the resources to handle an influx of addicts seeking treatment, Carroll said the organization has an obligation to help.

    The HOPE program also will recruit recovery coaches, who are to help people focus on keeping clean, Montminy said. Pathfinders, a local recovery group, will hold a class for those who want to be coaches, he said. Money for the training likely will come from the police department’s drug asset forfeiture funds, the chief said.

    The town human services department is to help HOPE clients find housing, employment and access to state resources and other services, department Director Mary Roche Cronin said.

    When they come out, it’s going to be a challenging time for them, and we need to be there to assist, Cronin said.

    US credit card debt balloons to $917B: What it means #us

    US credit card debt balloons to $917B: What it means

    While rising debt issuance usually points to a strong economy, danger could be lurking ahead.

    Last year, credit card debt in the U.S. surged by approximately $71 billion to $917.7 billion, according to a new study from CardHub.com. The research also found that most of the debt accrued in 2015 came in the fourth quarter, when Americans tacked on more than $52 billion.

    “With 7 of the past 10 quarters reflecting year-over-year regression in consumer performance, evidence is mounting to support the notion that credit card users are reverting to pre-downturn bad habits,” CardHub CEO Odysseas Papadimitriou said in a statement.

    Fourth-quarter credit card debt also grew at its largest pace since the Great Recession, CardHub also said.

    “It is something we need to keep an eye on if borrowing continues to grow rapidly,” said Scott Hoyt, senior director at Moody’s Analytics. He also said the implications of rising credit card debt would be similar to what happened in the recession, “when consumers became overly leveraged.”

    David Santschi, CEO of TrimTabs Investment Research, said “it’s usually a good sign when. credit card debt is rising” because it usually means consumers are spending more money.

    However, Steve Blitz, chief economist at ITG Investment Research, said this increase is “just a signal that there’s more people working,” adding that consumers are not necessarily taking on more debt.

    “The willingness of an individual to increase their leverage is the ultimate vote of confidence in the economy,” he said.

    The U.S. economy added 2.45 million jobs last year. In 2016, more than 400,000 positions have been created as of February, with the unemployment rate holding at 4.9, its lowest level in nearly eight years.

    Nonetheless, wage growth remains stagnant. U.S. workers earned 3 cents less an hour last month.

    “The drop in February [wages] was pretty sharp,” Santschi said. “The wage situation does not get as much attention as the headline number and the unemployment rate, but it’s evidence that the economy is basically flatlining.”

    U.S. equities are lower for 2016, with the Dow Jones industrial average and the S P 500 both down more than 2 percent, while the Nasdaq composite has dropped more than 6.5 percent.

    There’s Something Hugely Wrong In the U.S. Labor Force, Explains JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon

    There’s one number regarding the United States labor force that worries Jamie Dimon.

    The JPMorgan Chase (JPM ) CEO noted the “staggering” decline in the workforce participation rate among working-age men in a call with reporters on Tuesday. The aside came in a briefing on the Business Roundtable’s latest CEO survey. Dimon is the chairman of the corporate lobbying group.

    “I want to point you to one segment, okay, which is not a collective demographic, one segment and only one segment, and you should all write about it, and it’s a staggering number,” he said when asked by a reporter about unemployment. “Labor force participation by men between 25 and 55 has gone down from 96% to something like 86 to 87%. That is not demographics folks, that’s 10 million people who left the workforce. And maybe some have gone back, my numbers are a little bit old. Write about that segment, okay? That is a huge number.”

    Dimon’s numbers were not quite exact, but the sentiment hones in on a multi-decade trend of men dropping out of the workforce.

    While the unemployment rate dropped 4.3% in May, labor force participation by men age 25 to 54 (commonly called “prime-age men”) fell to 88.4%, its lowest figure so far this year. Labor force participation for the group hasn’t been above 90% since 2009, and the last time it was at or above the 96% figure Dimon referenced was in 1970.

    “There’s something wrong,” Dimon said.

    “It’s a big deal,” said Economic Policy Institute economist Elise Gould. “If you look back from mid-century. you see that men have been declining for a very long period of time, and the trends since 2000 are really a continuation of what’s been happening.”

    It’s not just men who are dropping out of the labor force but women as well. After decades of increases in labor force participation among prime-age women, it has slowly been dropping off since the turn of the century.

    “The fact that that has been declining over the last 16 years is a conundrum,” Gould said.

    The problem of nonworking prime-age men has been thoroughly examined by lawmakers and economists seeking a solution. The White House Council of Economic Advisers under President Obama last year released a report offering up a number of possible explanations for the trend, including increasing rates of women in the workforce, rising disability insurance claims, falling demand for less-skilled workers and barriers to employment for men with criminal records.

    Brookings Institution researchers Eleanor Krause and Isabel Sawhill in a paper suggested those and other factors could be in play.

    “There is no one smoking gun in this story, although if we had to point to the three most prominent, they would be a general lack of the right education and skills, too many years of slack labor markets, and high rates of incarceration,” they wrote.

    “Growing inequality certainly can be seen as having a cost,” Gould said.

    Asset sales plan secures EU backing for $130 billion Dow, DuPont

    Asset sales plan secures EU backing for $130 billion Dow, DuPont merger

    (Reuters) – Dow Chemical and DuPont won the blessing of the European Union for their $130 billion merger on Monday by agreeing to sell substantial assets including key research and development activities.

    The European Commission had been concerned that the merger of two of the biggest and oldest U.S. chemical producers would leave few incentives to produce new herbicides and pesticides in the future. The deal is one of a trio of mega mergers that will reshape the industry and consolidate six companies into three.

    Asset sales would ensure competition in the sector and benefit European farmers and consumers, the Commission said.

    “We need effective competition in this sector so companies are pushed to develop products that are ever safer for people and better for the environment,” European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in a statement.

    “Our decision today ensures that the merger between Dow and DuPont does not reduce price competition for existing pesticides or innovation for safer and better products in the future.”

    The two other big deals in the industry are ChemChina’s [CNNCC.UL] $43 billion bid for Syngenta and Bayer’s acquisition of Monsanto.

    Dow and DuPont said they were still on target for $3 billion in cost synergies and $1 billion in growth benefits.

    The deal is still to be approved by regulators in the United States, Brazil, China, Australia and Canada, but the companies said they were confident of clearance in all remaining jurisdictions.

    “This regulatory milestone is a significant step toward closing the merger transaction, with the intention to subsequently spin into three independent publicly traded companies,” Dow spokeswoman Rachelle Schikorra said in an email.

    The EU approval may be a sign that U.S. regulators would follow suit because the agencies have traditionally coordinated on reviews and remedies for large multinational mergers, said Diana Moss, president of the American Antitrust Institute non-profit group.

    However, any required asset sales would likely reflect antitrust concerns in the local marketplace.

    “In the U.S. there are very high shares in corn and soybean seeds. We would expect those problems to be significant enough for enforcers in the U.S. to remedy them,” Moss said.

    The 1,000-page decision underlined the significance of the merger. In return for the EU green light, DuPont will divest large parts of its global pesticides business, including its global research and development organization.

    The unit makes herbicides for cereals, oilseed rape, sunflower, rice and pasture and insecticides for insect control for fruits and vegetables.

    Dow, in turn, will sell two acid co-polymer manufacturing facilities in Spain and the United States, as well as a contract with a third party through which it buys ionomers. The company has already found a buyer in South Korea’s SK Innovation.

    “The main surprises here are the inclusion of the pesticides and the exclusion of any kind of seed assets,” Bernstein analysts wrote in a note. The analysts also said they had expected EU to be concerned about the concentration of seed sales, and that they would require Dow to divest its corn seeds business.

    European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager holds a news conference after Dow Chemical gained conditional EU antitrust approval on Monday for their $130 billion merger by agreeing to significant asset sales, one of a trio of mega mergers that will redraw the agrochemicals industry, in Brussels, Belgium March 27, 2017.

    “We see the required divestments here as smaller than we originally expected, due to the exclusion of seed assets”.

    Ebola travel: South Africa bans incomers from W Africa – BBC

    Ebola travel: South Africa bans incomers from W Africa

    21 August 2014

    Image caption Kenya has not reported any cases of Ebola, but is a common transit point for African travellers

    South Africa says non-citizens arriving from Ebola-affected areas of West Africa will not be allowed into the country, with borders closed to people from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

    All non-essential outgoing travel to the affected countries has been banned.

    Senegal also said it was suspending flights with Ebola-affected countries, and closing the border with Guinea.

    Cameroon and the Ivory Coast earlier imposed travel bans, despite World Health Organization warnings not to.

    Medium-risk

    South African nationals will be allowed to re-enter the country when returning from high-risk countries, but will undergo strict screening, the health ministry said on Thursday.

    Usual screening procedures are in place for those who travel between Nigeria, Kenya and Ethiopia, which have been defined as medium-risk countries.

    Image caption Nigeria stepped up its airport screening procedures after a number of Ebola cases were confirmed

    South Africa has experienced two Ebola scares in recent weeks, involving passengers arriving from Liberia and Guinea, but the country has so far remained Ebola-free.

    Johannesburg has one of the major transit airports, connecting southern Africa with the rest of the continent. Several airlines, including British Airways and Emirates Airlines, have stopped flights to some of the affected countries.

    Meanwhile, Senegal’s interior ministry announced on Friday it was closing the land borders with Guinea “once again”.

    Senegal shut its border with Guinea for the first time in March after the virus reached the capital Conakry.

    In a statement, it said this extends to “air and sea borders for aircraft and ships from the Republic of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia”.

    AU team

    Separately, the African Union (AU) announced plans to send a special team to the four affected countries.

    The six-month-long operation, involving volunteer doctors, nurses and medical personnel, will cost about $25m (£15m) and begin immediately, the AU said in a statement.

    Aid workers and medical staff are most exposed to the virus, and have been most at risk of becoming infected. Two US aid workers were discharged from hospital on Tuesday, after recovering from the virus they contracted in Liberia.

    The supply of the experimental drug used to treat the couple, ZMapp, has been exhausted.

    As Ebola has no known cure, it is being controlled by isolating victims and those who have come into contact with them.

    Liberia’s attempt to prevent the spread of the virus by imposing quarantines has led to unrest .

    BlackBerry Repeats as a Leader in Gartner 2017 EMM Magic Quadrant

    The BlackBerry Secure story keeps getting better. For the second year in a row, BlackBerry was named a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management Suites. We were one of four EMM vendors to be positioned in the Leader’s Quadrant this year, moving higher in execution and farther in completeness. Download here. or read on.

    At BlackBerry, we recognized a while ago that MDM and EMM were not enough for today’s enterprises. Organizations are grappling with securing, managing, and controlling smartphones, PCs, and the coming flood of smart IoT-enabled devices. Our vision is to offer a Unified Endpoint Management platform that lets companies secure and manage all of these devices – plus the associated apps, files and content that reside on them.

    So we executed and invested on that vision building and integrating the best technology into an overarching platform that we today call the BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite. This includes our core multi-OS management platform, BlackBerry UEM, as well as a whole lot more: the BlackBerry Work family of productivity apps, the Workspaces document control solution, the BlackBerry Dynamics platform, and more.

    Our strategy is being recognized by experts. By 2016, Gartner not only positioned us a Leader in the EMM Magic Quadrant, but we also achieved the highest score in three use cases 1 in the 2016 Critical Capabilities for EMM Suites report. as well the highest score in six out of six use cases 2 in the Critical Capabilities for High-Security Mobility Management report .

    We believe our improved positioning not only mirrors our successful transition to a business software provider from a device maker, it also validates our strategy of focusing on securing, managing and connecting the Enterprise of Things by offering the most cutting-edge, comprehensive platform around.

    Southwest Airlines and Virgin America top list of travel-related companies as rated by employees.

    If you’d like travel to be part of your work, consider trying to snag a job at domestic airlines Southwest Airlines or Virgin America.

    Those companies rank at the top of a new list of best travel-related employers compiled by career website Glassdoor. The ranking is based on evaluations by employees who work at those companies.

    For people who are considering working in the travel industry, this is a really valuable perspective, to hear what other people who work in the industry are saying, says Glassdoor CEO and co-founder Robert Hohman, who used to work for travel-deal website Expedia. To many outsiders, the travel industry looks extremely glamorous. And to a certain extent, it is. but once you go past the beaches, pools, and cocktails with the little umbrella, there’s a lot of hard work.

    The list includes various types of travel-related companies: airlines, hotels, car and truck rentals, online travel agencies, review websites, and cruise lines. Along with Southwest and Virgin America, Four Seasons Hotels, online travel company Orbitz Worldwide, and Kimpton Hotels Restaurants made the top five.

    The 40 companies included in the ranking each received at least 10 reviews on Glassdoor between May 2009 and May 2011, and nearly three-quarters received more than 30 reviews. Glassdoor compiles reviews by requiring users to offer insight on their company or salary before reading reviews by others.

    Both Southwest and Virgin America offer a perk that many job seekers covet: free and discounted flights. Virgin America allows employees plus a designated flying buddy—usually a spouse or friend—to fly for free whenever a plane has empty seats, and offer discounted flights to friends and family. Southwest Air also offers free, standby travel to employees, as well as a spouse, dependants, and parents, plus a limited number of passes for friends.

    You get discounts on everything: hotels, car rental, any travel-related items, says James Goodman, who has worked for Southwest for 14 years. You add it all up, it’s got to be thousands of dollars each year. A customer service training supervisor who lives in Chicago, Goodman flies for free with his wife and five-year-old son to Disney World in Orlando, Fla. twice a year. I probably wouldn’t be traveling there as much if I had to buy tickets on my own, he says.

    Southwest, which also ranked second on Glassdoor’s list of best 50 companies to work for this year, is hiring, but not in large numbers. The 35,000-employee company, headquartered in Dallas, has openings in revenue management and customer service. The company’s also looking for fall marketing interns.

    Virgin America, a domestic airline that began flying in August 2007, is also hiring. The company is looking for pilots, flight attendants, and mechanics, as well as support staff to work in finance and human resources at headquarters. Just about in every department, we have openings, says Christine Morehead, Virgin America’s director of people (or human relations).

    People like to work for the company because they’re passionate about the airline’s goal of reinventing flying, Morehead says. They really feel like they’re part of making history in the airline industry, bringing great service back. Headquartered in California (and not affiliated with Virgin Atlantic), Virgin America has about 2,000 employees.

    Working in the travel industry may have its perks, but it also has its downsides. Southwest employees complain on Glassdoor of politics within the company and low pay. Some perks, such as flexible schedules, they say, apply only to employees in certain departments. Virgin America employees complain about being away from home a lot, an overwhelming workload, and long hours.

    Here’s Glassdoor’s full list of top travel companies to work for, as well as each company’s ranking on a scale of 0-5:

    1. Southwest Airlines (airline): 4.2

    1. Virgin America (airline): 4.2

    Unable to Log On

    by Jedi Knight Calv

    I reloaded this app on my newer iPhone after it developed some sort of crashing issue (something I assumed was isolated to the app on my phone). However when I go to log on, it doesn’t accept my information because the app still believes my user name to be something that it no longer is. No matter how many times I reloaded the app and reset my password (and entered in the correct, reset password) I was not able to gain access to my own account!

    The clear solution to this is to allow users an option to enter their user name, even when redownloading this application from the iCloud.

    Please take heed of this review and update the app. I love it, but if I can’t use it with this incarnation of the software, this version of the app is not any good.

    GOOD BUT RESTRICTIVE

    The only thing I do not like about pof site is that it dictates what user age group you are allowed to contact or browse. I am 43 male and I can not browse profiles of girls younger than 29 years old! Why? On the other hand they would match me with ladies up to 60+. I do not know if this rule only apply to the free membership or not. Over all pof is much better than many dating sites I have used. I hope they would allow people the freedom of choosing what they want while continuing to give members the choice of using filters. Thank you.

    The official app is the best app

    For years I used Tweetbot but as my primary Twitter client but always had the official Twitter app in the background for certain and uses. I decided to try the Twitter app full-time this week and man am I impressed. Using the official Twitter app breathes new life into Twitter, makes me much more excited and invested in using the platform. This app has polish that Tweetbot doesn’t have. It also supports features such as poll and moments that other apps don’t. After a week of using the official Twitter client, I am now regretting I hadn’t switched much earlier.

    Ethanol: Pros ?>

    #

    Pros

    Positive Net Energy Balance – Corn-based ethanol has a positive net energy balance of 1.06btu per gallon for 1.00btu of energy used without ethanol by-product credits. With these credits, for things such as DDGS, corn-based ethanol has a positive net energy balance of 1.67btu per gallon for 1.00btu of energy used.

    Biodegradable – As ethanol is made with organic materials it is highly biodegradable making spills far less worrysome than petroleum spills. When spilled, 74% of ethanol is broken down within 5 days.

    Usable By-Products – The two chief by-products of corn-based ethanol are CO2 and DDGS, both of which are usable in other industries. The CO2 can be captured for use in the food and beverage industry. DDGS can be used for cattle feed or further crushed to extract corn oil, for food or biodiesel production uses.

    Most Infrastructure In-place – There are few changes that would need to be made to widely adopt ethanol. Most automobiles available in the U.S. are Flex Fuel capable and there are roughly 2,000 stations already serving E85. While most of these stations are lumped in the Midwest, they are increasing nationwide.

    Cons

    Food vs. Fuel – 2.4 to 2.8 gallons of ethanol can be produced per bushel of corn. As a result, there has been massive media coverage over the use of food as fuel. While there are mountains of findings showing how the use of corn has increased food costs and equal amounts showing it does not, in the end food crops are being used as fuel, making corn-based ethanol inferior to cellulosic ethanol in this regard.

    Reduced MPG – Based on 2009 flex fuel vehicles, E85 miles per gallon is expected to be roughly 28.5% lower in the city and 26.5% lower on the highway. This means it takes 1.35 to 1.40 gallons of E85 to equal the mileage of 1.00 gallons of gasoline.

    Fuel Transportation – Ethanol absorbs water and is corrosive. which make it difficult to ship through existing pipelines from the Midwest of the U.S. where most production occurs. Remedies include shipping or building dedicated ethanol pipelines, however the most likely scenario seems to involve rail or road transport. The best scenario would be local ethanol plants, with the easiest way to accomplish this through continued development of cellulosic ethanol, where feedstocks are abundant everywhere as opposed to corn or sugar.

    Water Absorbtion – Ethanol absorbs water, which can contaminate it as a fuel and makes it more difficult to ship through pipelines. As a result, ethanol has a shorter shelf and tank life than gasoline.

    Fueling Locations – There are roughly 2,000 E85 fueling stations in the U.S. with the majority in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. A U.S. E85 fueling station map and locator can be found here.

    Alek Torgersen Draft Profile – #nfl #news, #nfl.com #news, #football #news


    #

    Overview

    California talent and Ivy League intelligence is a good combination for an NFL prospect, and he’s become one of the most decorated players in Penn history. Even in his first action as a Quaker, he received Ivy League Rookie of the Week in the season finale against Cornell, his only game of the season (6-10, 109 yards, two scores). The team struggled in 2014, but Torgersen successfully ran the offense, completing 26 passes per game for 2,689 yards, and 14 touchdowns (11 interceptions). He finished his career with back-to-back first-team All-Ivy League seasons, helping Penn win 14 games against five losses. In 2015, he had the second-highest completion percentage in FCS (69 percent, 1,996 yards, 19 TD, three INT). Torgersen then set school records in passing touchdowns and total offense during his senior year, completing 66.9 percent of his passes for 2,231 yards and 17 touchdowns, with just four interceptions. He also showed mobility during his career, rushing for 516 yards and 18 scores (even when accounting for sacks).

    Analysis

    Strengths

    Three-year starter with fit build and NFL size. Athletic with success in zone-read. Dug into the film after sophomore season with desire to become smarter quarterback and showed drastic reduction of interceptions over next two years. Keeps ball tucked high and tight pre-delivery. Has big, strong hands to pump and reload if he spies late trouble. Ball comes out of his hand with tight spiral and good velocity. Gets it out quick if pressure flashes suddenly. Throws with touch on deep balls. Naturally accurate and throws with confidence between the hashes.

    Weaknesses

    Lacks experience in pro-style attack. Checks are called from the sideline. Offense filled with one-and-done reads. Has to break habit of staring targets down. Wasn’t asked to be a full-field reader. Will have to play faster to adjust to shrinking NFL throwing windows. Will hang onto the ball a tick too long on rollouts. Inconsistent release. At times, his release with become elongated and with a pronounced dip in it. Reads could be inconsistent against zone.

    Draft Projection

    NFL Comparison

    Bottom Line

    Developmental quarterback with NFL size and a good head on his shoulders. Torgersen’s success came against a much lower level of competition, but it is worth noting that his accuracy and arm strength will also benefit his growth when he’s throwing to NFL-caliber targets. Torgersen’s traits make him a late round stash-and-hide prospect with practice squad potential early, but he could see his draft stock rise if he has a big offseason. -Lance Zierlein

    Bomb threats force Air France flights to be diverted

    SALT LAKE CITY — Two Air France flights bound for Paris from the U.S. were diverted Tuesday night because of anonymous threats received after they had taken off, but both planes landed safely in North America, officials said.

    One plane, Air France Flight 65 from Los Angeles International Airport to Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, was diverted to Salt Lake City International Airport, Air France said in a statement. At about the same time, a second flight, Air France 55, took off from Dulles International Airport outside Washington and was diverted to Halifax on Canada’s East Coast, Air France said.

    Passengers got off both planes safely and were taken to terminals. Authorities in both the U.S. and Canada searched the planes with dogs, officials said.

    Authorities found no credible threat on the plane in Salt Lake City, according to an FBI statement released late Tuesday night. And the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said investigators found no evidence of an explosive device after they searched the plane and luggage in Halifax.

    Air France later called both incidents false alerts.

    Passengers in the Utah airport were boarding the plane again around 11:30 p.m. local time, Salt Lake airport spokeswoman Bianca Shreeve said. Later, the CBS affiliate there, KUTV, said the plane had departed. It was heading on to Paris and due late Wednesday morning, Air France said.

    Passengers from the plane in Halifax were put up in hotels for the night, and the flight was scheduled to leave for Paris Wednesday evening and land there Thursday morning, Air France said.

    RCMP Constable Mark Skinner said there were 262 people on the flight diverted to Halifax.

    Keith Rosso, of Santa Monica, California, a passenger on the flight from Los Angeles, with his fiancee, said, “Everything was smooth, everything was great, everything was going swell” for the first two hours of the flight, then things changed.

    “The flight attendants quickly came by and cleared plates, then there was an announcement that we were making an emergency landing and that the flight attendants were trained exactly for situations like this,” Rosso told The Associated Press by phone from the airport in Salt Lake City.

    He said he looked at the flight monitor at his seat and saw that “we had made a pretty sharp right turn – we had been almost near Canada – toward Salt Lake City.”

    Rosso said an FBI agent interviewed the passengers after the landing.

    The threats came after last week’s attacks in Paris that killed 129 people and heightened security concerns around the world.
