Llega el tiempo de cambiar y para eso yo quiero expresar a todas las personas las cosas que extraño de mi tierra Honduras y su gente. Una de las cosas que más extraño es la manera en que vivimos, una vida sin preocupaciones por que somos conformes con lo que tenemos.

By Leah Ogden

Released on September 14th, Jungle’s “For Ever shows off a fresh twist on not only Hi-Fi funk, but their own personal sound.

Decades old vintage planes: Douglas DC-2 and DH-88 Comet

By David Burgess

Two legendary aircraft are famous after the MacRobertson Air Race in 1934. Both are still operational, have a history, and are airworthy.

In the MacRobertson Air Race in 1934, a twin engine propliner operated by KLM called Uiver, which was a Douglas DC-2, placed second, while another aircraft, a DH-88 Comet called Grosvenor House placed first. Uiver is one of the only 2 surviving DC-2 aircraft, as well as Grosvenor House, with Black Magic being restored.

Kids all over the country fear going to school each day, because today could be “the day,” sitting in classrooms and planning an escape route in the event that someone opens fire on campus. Parents are forced to have “in the event of a shooter” talks with their kindergartners. This is the new “normal. Continue reading “Shootings, paranoia, fear: is this the new ‘normal’?”
