The Latest Anti-Gay Move in Russia

A monument which was erected in St. Petersburg in Russia back in 2013 was suddenly taken down — coincidentally after the current chief executive officer of Apple announced that he is gay — with “the need to abide by laws combating gay propaganda” being given as the reason.

According to this article posted at Michael W. Travels, the monument — six feet tall — was erected by a group of companies known as ZEFS in honor of Steve Jobs, who was not gay.

Unfortunately, this was no surprise to me.

Vladimir Putin — who is the president of Russia — signed in July of 2013 what became a controversial law which contains a provision allowing the government to arrest and detain up to 14 days foreigners who declare that they are gay…

NoPhone: The Next Useless Fad Since the Pet Rock?

How would you like a lightweight gadget which is waterproof, shatterproof, will not bend, virtually free of maintenance, and is purportedly “toilet bowl resistant” whenever you travel?

Folks, this revolutionary product is called the NoPhone. Successfully funded through Kickstarter by significantly greater than three times its original goal of $5,000.00 to be raised by no fewer than 915 people who are willing to back this product, the “new and unimproved” NoPhone is unlike any other mobile telephone you have ever seen.

Why a Possible Lawsuit By Music Companies Against Airlines May Be A Foolish Decision

I personally believe that initiating a copyright lawsuit against American Airlines would be a foolish move on the part of Universal Music Group — who was a client of a client of mine at one time where I trained some of their employees at a facility in southern North Carolina where they created compact discs for distribution — for the simple reason that they would be…

Should Frequent Flier Loyalty Programs Be Regulated by the United States Government?

Should the frequent flier loyalty programs of airlines be regulated by the Department of Transportation of the United States?

The Department of Transportation already requires that airlines disclose the rules of their frequent flier loyalty programs and provides guidance to airlines for disclosing costs they may assess related to bookings of award travel.

This letter was written by Matthew Hampton — who is the Assistant Inspector General for Aviation Audits of the Department of Transportation of the United States — where an audit has been initiated pertaining to the oversight of the frequent flier loyalty programs of airlines and is being conducted at the request of Alan Grayson, a member of Congress who represents the ninth district of Florida…
