Musician to the Stars, Ozzie Melendez, Finally Takes Center Stage
Huffington Post - 9 months
Ozzie Melendez's bags are packed. On this afternoon, Melendez admits he’s feeling a bit stressed. He has a long to-do list he must check off before his flight in the morning. For the next month he will be touring Costa Rica and Mexico with Marc Anthony, the best-selling salsa artist of all time. Melendez is familiar with this pace. For over three decades he has been traveling the world playing trombone for some the biggest stars of all time. During one week this past April, Melendez had to prepare for three gigs with three very different artists.

When Melendez is on stage looking at the sold-out audiences, he says there are times he is overwhelmed. "It's something I've always dreamed about as a kid...

Revealed: 35% of Domestic Seat Capacity Banned From Popular Airfare Comparison Sites and Apps
Huffington Post - about 1 year
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 Atl...

Huffington Post - about 1 year
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. Attendees reportedly included Meryl Streep, George and Amal Clooney, Robert De Niro, Beyoncé and Jay Z, Nick Jonas, Jordin Sparks, David Letterman, Paul McCartney, Kelly Rowland, Olivia Wilde and Ja...
