American Airlines has continued its streak cancellation over the course of Halloween weekend as a quarter of its scheduled flights—634 of them—were cancelled on Sunday. The airline has blamed weather control issues, such as strong winds from Dallas, and ongoing staff shortages due to lay-offs made when travel cratered at the start of the COVID outbreak. In total, more than 1,500 flights have been axed by the airline since Friday with 738 delays and 342 cancellations, according to FlightAware. On Saturday, 543 flights were cancelled with more than 400 also delayed. 'With additional weather throughout the system, our staffing begins to run tight as crew members end up

A BEAUTIFUl fall day in Dallas. About 75 degrees, blue sky, 3mph wind out of south. Finally got all of our leaves blown up against our fence after 2 really windy days on Thursday & Friday. Dogs were eating leaves and twigs, even though I blew off driveway about 4 times in one day. Maybe that UK paper got their facts (off the transcontinental cable) wrong about the wind, unless p'haps at 35,000 feet.

Who is John Galt? He's the guy who isn't going to take your shot, and you can't actually afford to fire a bunch of your very hard to replace pilots, and other skilled folks.

Nice try, American. My younger son lives in Fort Worth and it is completely calm in the area. Your cancellations are entirely due to pilots and flight attendants who refuse to get jabbed and have been fired, were furloughed, or took early retirement. American, your goose is cooked. Other carriers whose executive management resists the jab mandate, will take up the slack.

An Arizona man who contracted COVID-19 earlier this year is believed to have spread the virus to his two pets in the first-ever documented case of human-to-pet transmission in the U.S. The unnamed man, who is 28 years old and unvaccinated, developed symptoms of Covid on March 6, and tested positive for the virus. Ten days later, his dog and cat also tested positive for Covid. It is the first case of pets catching COVID-19 from humans, and gives experts another look at how the virus that has taken over the world may be spreading.(Snip)'They don't always become symptomatic, but they certainly

More than 100 humanitarian groups are pressing President Biden to do more to evacuate at-risk Afghans left behind amid the chaotic U.S. military withdrawal from the war-torn country in late August. In a letter to National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan last week, leaders from international development, humanitarian, and immigration organizations expressed disappointment with the administration’s “overly narrow list of priority stakeholders for evacuation” and called for a meeting with administration officials to “voice our concerns and hear the administration’s plans to evacuate and resettle at-risk Afghans.” The administration has faced sharp pressure from Capitol Hill over the hundreds of American and thousands of Afghan nationals

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is reporting a new high in the bullying of Muslim children in California public, charter and non-Islamic private schools. In a statewide survey of 708 Muslim students aged 11 to 18 years old, 55% reported “feeling unsafe, unwelcome or uncomfortable at school because of their Muslim identity,” the highest level in five such reports since the biennial study began in 2013, CAIR-CA reported. Hussam Ayloush, head of the civil rights group’s California chapter, told The Washington Times that the results confirm American Muslims have “faced growing challenges due to Islamophobia” in popular culture and public hate crimes during the past 20 years

Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine increases a person's risk of developing rare blood clots, a new study suggests. Researchers from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, compared data from the general population before the pandemic to data gathered from reported vaccine side-effects suffered by Americans. They found that a person who received the vaccine was 3.5 times as likely to develop brain blood clots as an average person before the pandemic. Blood clotting, and specifically cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a well known side-effect of the J&J vaccine, and the discovery of this risk was the reason usage of the vaccine was paused in April.
