    Over the last two weeks, two branches of government have staked out a position that when an airline cancels or substantially delays your flight, no matter what the reason, it should either get you to your destination as quickly as possible or give you a cash refund — and that a voucher or future credit isn't an adequate alternative. Unlike the case of minimized airline seat size, I think this idea will have legs.

      The daughter of the Dutch national team’s dressage coach Sjef Janssen and dressage trainer Kerensa Muller, Kayden Muller-Janssen paved a different career path for herself. A former competitive baton twirler, the 20-year-old singer is best known these days for her acting career, which includes Disney’s “The Villains of Valley View.” Based out of Wellington, Florida, Muller-Janssen describes her character, Hartley, as “an interesting character. She’s charismatic and loves to help others and her community. She doesn't like to lie so that is a big challenge for her throughout the show. I think Hartley would be a great travel partner. She always has a positive outlook on life and knows how to have a good time.”

      Unless you travel exclusively in first class or by private jet, you've encountered flying in the "economy," "coach," or "main" cabin of a jet plane. Chances are, you've found those seats to be tight — too tight for today's travelers. Back in 2018, Congress seemed to think so and it asked the FAA to issue standards for minimum seat size. And, here four years later, FAA finally agreed: It's about to issue a notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) asking for public comments on possible future minimum seat size standards.

      Two decades after leaving his native California to launch his career overseas, musician and actor Van Ness Wu is celebrating the release of his first all-English-language album “Take a Ride.” Over the years, the multi-lingual artist has collaborated with singers like Beyonce and Bruno Mars, but Wu’s latest collection of songs pays homage to his childhood musical influences (Michael Jackson, Prince, A Tribe Called Quest), while putting a fresh spin on his unique sound that incorporates hip-hop, pop and rhythm and blues. Given that his busy schedule takes him around the world often, it’s not surprising to learn that the singer-songwriter penned songs for “Take a Ride” while in London, Kyoto and Malibu. As for this interview, Wu answered questions from his hotel room in Changsha, China.

      I’m high in the Swiss Alps in a tiny mountain hut on a perch called Ebenalp. Here, a spry grandpa in a sweater as worn as his face pulls a wide-eyed child onto his lap to teach him to drum with old wooden spoons, as the old-timer next to him pumps on his squeezebox. Tall, sloppy mugs of beer stoke the commotion. I’m immersed in the conviviality, but eventually climb upstairs to my lofty bunk.
