Just wondering... if they would've done it to a Jew everyone would've scream antisemitism. Now that you see that they follow through with their country's policy you're still criticizing it with "discriminate against your own kind". It's a national law that applies in many country and has nothing to do with Kuwait Airlines obviously. And at least it's fair that they don't discriminate Jews vs arabs who are Israeli citizens.

Meaning they hate Jews so much  they'll even discriminate against their in order not to have the possibility of having to fly one Yid (how many other countries are on their "black list")

I can't stop kicking myself for missing the May 2017 announcement that Turkish does TSA Pre! Could have helped me on my recent trip.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

This is more like an ad then a article. Can someone please help me understand why a sick mother with seven kids would go ahead and have a eighth child after the community raised funds for them to buy a better place to live. Now they are asking for more funding to raise their kids because both parent cant work. I just dont get it.

Of course its an ad. Communicated content is YWN speak for ad. And only this surprises you?  Quick answer, Hashem gives us kids. Quicker answer, No BC allowed.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Some people will only use certain birth control that isn't as effective.

Some people think they're supposed to.

A couple of years ago I got to ride a nostalgia line with my kids from Kings Highway to Coney Island.

All I can say is that they don't build things today like they used to. There was no AC in those cars, but the wood detail, and the beautiful ceiling fans were really nice. It was also fascinating to read the ads.

Another piece of news from Israel, not letting the airline get away with excuses. Sorry couldn't find English source. Court ruled that even though delay was weather related, ELAL can't be let off the hook for the (mis-)treatment of stranded passengers, and awarded ILS 10,000 for each claimant + interest from time of claim.

I did the M last year from Queens Plaza, and it was full of people in period dress - very raucus. There were period appropriate 3-4 person bands playing music in several of the cars.

Of note is SD:

Two years ago, South Dakota ordered officials to withhold various licenses from people who owe the state money. Nearly 1,000 residents are barred from holding driverís licenses because of debts owed to state universities, and 1,500 people are prohibited from getting hunting, fishing and camping permits.

This might be a good place to default on student loans if they only don't allow you to get a hunting/fishing/camping permit, lol j/k.

ALOL! Maybe they are calculating based on how she used them.
