Revealed: 35% of Domestic Seat Capacity Banned From Popular Airfare Comparison Sites and Apps
Huffington Post - 26 days
Many consumers aren't aware that when they search for a low airfare with an online travel agency (OTA) such as Travelocity or a popular search app such as Hopper, Kayak or Farecompare, they may not be seeing the lowest possible airfares. In fact, if they use these sites to buy airfare from or to an airport such as Atlanta, where Delta commands over 80% of the market, or Kansas City, where Southwest controls 50% of traffic, it's almost certain many of them will pay more than they should. But don't blame the aforementioned websites and apps. If anyone is to "blame" it's the airlines themselves. Delta and Southwest,which together control about 35% of U.S. domestic seats, are the main culprits here. Southwest, which never displayed its airfares anywhere other than Southwest.com (except for a brief period on the Easy Sabre search site, a consumer product in existence from 1986 to 1999), one would expect. But Delta is a relative newcomer to the airfare hide and seek game. The Atla ...

Huffington Post - about 2 months
With only two weeks left until Barack and Michelle Obama vacate the White House for good, the first family welcomed a host of celebrity guests on Friday night for a star-studded farewell party.  Aside from an awards show, there haven’t been this many famous people gathered in one room since a casting call for a holiday-themed Garry Marshall romantic comedy.  The White House bash effectively serves as the kickoff to events celebrating President Obama’s time in office, leading up to his final address, which he’ll deliver in Chicago on Jan. 10. Days later, President-elect Donald Trump will call 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. home after his inauguration, for which he’s struggled to find big-name performers.  In contrast, Obama’s farewell party attracted some of the biggest A-listers around.

40 Under 40: Latinos In Sports
Huffington Post - 4 months
The 2016 sports season was filled with countless story lines ranging from redemptions, to walk off retirements and dramatic Olympic performances. And in the center of these were many influential Latinos. However, even though Latinos have made great strides in sports, the community still faces multiple barriers to entry. This can be seen in becoming a professional, and Olympic athlete, as well as in the disproportionate amount of diversity in management, journalism and ownership positions vis-a-vis to the constantly evolving percentage of players of color in the NFL, NBA, and MLB to name a few. Yet despite these obstacles various role models have cracked into this sector and have paved the way for many. Armando Salguero (Miami Herald) and Dan Le Batard (ESPN), Mauricio Sulaiman (WBC), Jose de Jesus Ortiz (St. Louis Dispatch), Tony Gonzalez (CBS), Jesse Sanchez (MLB), Angel Rodríguez (LA Times), Arturo "Artie"Moreno (Owner of LA Angels), Linda Alvarado (Owner of Colorado Rocki ...
