“This official statement — which was issued by the New York City Transit division of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority — revealed that massive reconstruction work needed to the Canarsie Tunnel will require a full closure of the tunnel for 18 months starting no sooner than 2019. Service in Manhattan will be suspended during the entire length of the closure of the Canarsie Tunnel; while service in Brooklyn is expected to remain relatively normal.”

The paragraph you just read was from this article which I wrote on Tuesday, August 9, 2016 pertaining to the necessity of repairing a vital link in the subway system in New York while simultaneously ensuring the safety of passengers with as little inconvenience as possible…

Some Survivors Grabbed Belongings as 41 People Perished in Airplane Crash in Russia?

Of the 78 people who were aboard the Sukhoi Superjet 100-95 aircraft — which operated as Aeroflot flight 1492 from Moscow Sheremetyevo airport on its way north to Murmansk in Russia — only 37 are reported to have survived a fiery crash yesterday afternoon, which destroyed most of the rear half of the airplane…

After a long day of work or sightseeing, there is nothing like repairing to the tranquility of a hotel room, where you can shower, read, and sleep…

…and when you are traveling for at least a week, sometimes taking one day off and just spending it in your hotel room is exactly the way to recharge yourself for the rest of your trip.
