Travelers around the country are seeing thousands of flight delays, many up to 2 hours, the result of furloughs the Federal Aviation Administration started earlier this week following sequestration cuts which went into effect last month. The FAA, like many other agencies, are requiring their 47,000 employees - including 13,000 air-traffic controllers – to take extra unpaid days off, one day for every two weeks in this case.
In addition to the inconvenience for travelers, per the Passenger Rights Act passed in 2011, airlines are expected to compensate them for delays and time spent on the tarmac. Airlines, as a result, are calling on the government to fix the furlough issue or, at least, give them exceptions while furloughs are in effect.
It’s one of the first obvious effects sequestration is having on the general population, but if you are expecting Washington to do anything about it, don’t hold your breath. Rather both parties are pointing fingers at each other.
Senator Pat Toomey argued the FAA could cut from less important areas. House Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers accused the administration of mishandling the situation.
Democrats counter Republicans could have avoided the situation and only they now have the power to abate the impact. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Congress botched the job and the FAA had no choice but to cut back in labor costs to absorb the sequestration cuts.
One thing everyone seems to agree on is that it will only get worse as we head into the summer travel season if no action is taken.

Rebekah Roth, the very articulate author of Methodical Illusion returns as our guest.
She spent nearly thirty years in the airline industry, working as both a flight attendant and an international purser. Her expertise and training as a flight attendant allowed her to research the events of September 11, 2001, with an insider’s knowledge that eventually lead her to discover details and answers to some of the most haunting questions surrounding that infamous day in our history.
Her extensive research, bolstered by her insider knowledge and a list of extensive contacts both inside and outside of the airline industry, produced surprising results that shattered her cognitive dissonance and compelled her to tell her story.
Ms. Roth adeptly fills in the blanks that have been redacted from history. Among her findings: ten of the accused 9/11 hijackers were still alive months and years after that September day. Several of them were also airline employees employed with Saudi Arabia Airlines and that they had had their identifications stolen years prior to 9/11. At least four of the accused hijackers threatened to sue the U.S. Government and the FBI if they did not stop using their names and identities. Additionally, Ms. Roth discovered and verified that at least two women were also directly involved in the 9/11 attacks. Her personal knowledge of in-flight procedures, FAA hijacking protocols, the state of Massachusetts and cell phone technology, she discovered yet to be exposed details concerning the aircraft, the passengers and the perpetrators.
Based on actual events and the product of her exhaustive investigative research, Methodical Illusion is written as a novel to protect her and her family from the repercussions that inevitably occur when you get too close to the truth.
4-8-15- Dr. Hildy®: Beware The Designer Mosquito and Her Friends

With summer approaching, it’s not uncommon to often find things buzzing around your head. Most of the time, it’s harmless flies or mosquitos, trying to feed. But recently, there have been more things flying around. With the rise of remote controlled flying drones, there are more cameras than ever looking at us always. But while these are easily identifiable, flying insects are often not. Not only due to size, but also due to mutations and other factors that render them from their common forms to new species never seen before.
With drones becoming increasingly prevalent, people are taking measures to protect themselves from their prying eyes. While the FAA has not taken steps to regulate these machines, nine states have taken measures to enact laws to regulate their use and illegal surveillance.
But what happens when the cameras become too small to see? Currently, there are cameras smaller than a penny that can take high-resolution photos. The military and other contractors are currently designing surveillance drones that resemble insects, not just in appearance, but also in size.
