Music. Worst U.S. airline revealed: Are you surprised? United Airlines was the worst U.S. airline —and Virgin America was the best — among leading U.S. airlines last year, a report said Monday.
Overall, carriers had their second-best score in the more than the two decades since researchers began measuring quality of service.

Airline performance in 2012 was the second highest in the 23 years that Wichita State University in Kansas and Purdue University in Indiana have tracked the performance of airlines. Besides being the overall leader, Virgin America, headquartered in Burlingame, Calif., also did the best job on baggage handling and had the second-lowest rate of passengers denied seats due to overbookings. 'Sirius,' Steven Greer's Film, Claims To Unveil Tiny 'Alien' Humanoid. An upcoming documentary promises to show an alleged, tiny "alien" being that was found a few years ago in Chile's Atacama Desert.
And when we say tiny, we're talking six inches from head to ET toe. Don't be fooled by the apparent size of the creature in the picture above, as the following image shows its true 6-inch stature. The film, called "Sirius," will also depict how readily available forms of alternative energy technology are what extraterrestrials may be using to travel here from the cosmically improbable distances between their home world and ours.
If this is all true, and that's a very big IF, it will certainly answer the ages-old question of whether or not humans are alone in the universe. The force behind "Sirius" is Steven Greer, a former emergency medical physician. "Sirius" includes graphic footage of the supposedly humanoid entity of "unknown classification" by DNA sequencing. A side view X-ray of the miniscule creature was also released to reveal its internal structure. (4) Facebook. S Next Chapter: Stephen Colbert - @OWNTV #Nextchapter.
Huff post. Annabel Park & the Coffee Party Three Year Anniversary Show 03/24 by Coffee Party USA. Coffee Party USA follow Call in to speak with the host Three years ago, the Coffee Party leaped from a popular Facebook page to a national phenomenon with people getting together in coffee shops and community centers to engage in civil dialogue as fellow Americans, and work together to form a more perfect union.
It made national news. What does it take to create a truly inclusive and civil dialogue? The Big Apple Coffee Party has been focused almost exclusively on the problem of money in politics.

Coffee Party USA. I am Margaret Reeve Panahi, am a nurse, and live in Massachusetts.
I was working as a nurse practitioner as a primary care practitioner (PCP) in a public health center when Romneycare was established. I can say that it helped tremendously, both for access to care for the patients, and fewer tragically overwhelming cases for the practitioners that could have been prevented, or lessened, if the patients had been able to come in earlier. It was heartwarming to see the changes. I am no longer practicing because my husband has a serious genetic illness that has led to many surgeries, unpredictable and serious hospitalizations, including a kidney transplant about five years ago.
He now has Medicare, but still needs to buy supplemental insurance for both hospitalizations and prescriptions. Our state is working on further reforms to the original Romneycare law. My experience is that the world did not collapse when we increased health care access, and in fact, health care has been improved.
