Travel writer Johnny DiScala recently boarded Delta Flight 2255 from Atlanta to Los Angeles. It was an ordinary flight with the exception of a sweet flight attendant with Southern charm who took a moment to recognize the military on board.

I was once invited to give a live interview on a radio station in Brasília, the capital of Brazil. The interview took place at rush hour in the city's very busy bus terminal, where poor workers come in from rural areas to perform all sorts of jobs in town, from cleaning the streets to working in factories and private homes.
The experience would mark me for the rest of my life and set a new professional goal that I had not anticipated early in my career: to bring science to the largest number of people possible.
India successfully launched its first space mission to Mars today. The orbiter, named Mangalyaan, is expected to enter Mars’ orbit in September 2014. It would make India the fourth country to successfully reach Mars.

When it comes to dating the rules aren't always black and white. And when you add race into the equation things can become even more complicated.
The online dating website "Are You Interested" analyzed over 2.4 million interactions on their site and found that Asian women are more likely to get a message from a man of any race—unless those men are Asian.
AYI also found that white men are pursued the most by women of all races—except black women, who are least likely to get a message from anyone.
