Have you ever wondered what it means and where it comes from? In this article I’m going to tackle what gringo means, its story, and how to prevent getting this contagious disease. Where does it...

The Airline Quality Index, calculated by researchers at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical...
On stage, a giant beacon of white light glows. It burns brightly for almost two hours, the seats in front of it slowly filling with zealous followers. When anticipation in the coliseum builds to palpable levels, the icon suddenly begins to rotate and display bizarre voodoo images reminiscent of American Horror Story: Coven. As the day turns into night, the...
Many Americans may sadly be desensitized to mass shootings in the United States. This can be corroborated by the lack of surprise when the news of an additional mass shooting occurred this past December in San Bernadino, California. Ironically, the largest backlash against the handling of this shooting stems not from gun control but instead the handling of personal...
