It is that mystery that makes the loss of MH370 so terrifying. Follow along step-by-step as Wrigley recreates the flight and its disappearance. Review the many varied theories as to how it could have happened - up to and including alien abduction.

Uber Chronicles: Reflections from the Rearview Mirror

Be a fly on the wall ... or a fly in an Uber, as Jessie Newburn takes readers on a second voyage through her experiences as an Uber driver.

There's a story told about each and every passenger who gets in her car. Whether she's picking up a nervous young college student who fears she is casing his house for a robbery, a 50-year-old lawyer who wants to talk about his favorite strains of cannabis, or a young woman who's taking a few bags to a nearby laundromat, each story provides a momentary look at someone's life.

Says one of her readers from her first book, "Jessie Newburn is one of those amazing people who can size up people instantly and without pity, and yet can connect with their humanity without fail. In this book, she makes unflinchingly honest observations about people she gets to know in five minutes and will likely never see again ... Even readers who don't share her circumstances or those of her fares will nonetheless connect with the funny, insightful snapshots in this scrapbook of stories."

Join the many other readers on this journey and discover why Jessie's Uber Chronicles are striking such a chord of heart-warming resonance with so many people.


And stay tuned for the next Uber Chronicles. There will be another!


As an aside ... what about you? Have you been an Uber passenger? Do you have interesting stories to tell about your experiences? Did you have a fascinating conversation with your Uber driver? A taxicab confessions-type of situation? I'm open to publishing stories by other passengers and drivers. Say hello!

Uber Chronicles: One driver, 35 Rides, Countless Stories

In July 2016, a TechCrunch article stated that Uber had completed over 2 billion rides for passengers. Two billion!

In this book, the third in the "Uber Chronicles" series by Jessie Newburn, the author takes you inside her car (and her mind) on 35 trips.

There's the young Uber passenger, who on an hour-long trip to both get his girlfriend and then bring her back to his home, shares his music collection with Jessie, tells the story of how he kicked out of college for cannabis possession, and fancies himself the best passenger she has ever had.

There's a brush with fame in picking up a contestant from The Voice and American Idol.

There's the first (and to date only) passenger to earn a three-star rating from her after requesting a ride while still on an Amtrak train 20+ minutes from arriving, treating Uber like a black car service and not even tipping a couple bucks for making her wait over 10 minutes before his train arrived.

There's the young man from India, celebrating his America-versary, who shares the challenges of discriminatory wages and trying to support his family after his wife just had a baby a few months ago.

There's the 40s-something couple flirting on a second or third date, the guy just back in the US after a decade abroad who doesn't know that speed cameras have been installed all over the city, and even her stories as an Uber passenger.

Jessie's "Uber Chronicles" books are striking a chord with readers from all walks of life as she shares her perceptions of, experiences with and stories about passengers from all walks of life.

Come along for the ride!

A Challenge to the "green" lobby: questions about environment policy

This work is a challenge to the present-2017- environment lobby. I am 75 years old grew up at a time when "the environment" was not an issue, people lived by make do and mend, we recycled and reused everything. I grew my own vegetables designed and had made a wood burning stove that heated the home and all the hot water. I cut down dead trees, with permission of the owners, and generally tried to follow a sustainability path.

In those days "small is beautiful" and being independent were the mantras, there were no paid green lobbyist, no government ministers of the environment. There was no money in being "green". There were no green taxes, no political advantage in "green" proposals.

Healthy Care-Health Insurance Advice | Health Insurance is your most important health care product: Make your best personal health/personal wealth decision ... Heatlhy Care (EZ Internet Reference Book

oSave hundreds, if not thousands of dollars every year by having the right health insurance.

oTurn that confusion-laced fine print into clear, precise details that are simple to understand

oHaving the right Health Insurance is your investment in a healthy life

o'Healthy Care' covers how you pay your Excess and Co-payments

I have worked in the health care system for years in areas directly relating to the patients' Health Insurance. I have seen, first hand, that there are a great number of people who are unaware of the limitations of their own Health Insurance.

But, I do understand that it is NOT through the patient's own negligence. It really is the responsibility of the staff member (slash salesperson) at the Health Fund to tell you the FULL ins-and-outs of the cover that they are selling you.

The way it generally goes is like this. You walk into the fund branch or phone them. They suggest what suits you. They explain that you will pay this much a month and whether or you are covered for hospital. They may even tell you what your Excess will come to.

Because they know it all inside out they can blurt it all out pretty quickly. Before you know it, they've finished talking, you're making a choice out of option A or, option B and then your sold.

Well I guess if you have no idea of what you are looking for, that's the only way you can go about it.

But what if you went into a store knowing that you didn't need to go into hospital regularly and neither did any member of your family? What if you knew that having an Excess to pay could work out smarter in your own circumstances, or perhaps it didn't.

An alternate scenario to the one I have just described is that you walk into the Heath fund branch ready to buy your health insurance. This time you are totally prepared because you KNOW what you want to be covered for, You are clear on how your Excess and co-payment work. You will also understand this could work to your benefit if you don't go into hospital.

So now, with this very clear picture of what you need, nobody would be able to pull the wool over your eyes because you know your Health Insurance.

In this second scenario, you have the opportunity to really the right insurance policy for your family, not just one that you half-understood and the half felt bedazzled by.

As a qualified teacher in three essential life areas, I have decided that the public needs better information to help them make the right decisions when it comes to making these types of choices.

This book is a self-help book on investing in your own Healthy Care. Any time that you are considering health care products in general, you will find that a good health insurance will be rewarded because at that critical moment in time it could literally cover thousands of dollars in health care fees.

When it comes to your own Healthy Care, you will find that investing in your own personal health is an area that you should be including within your personal money management strategies.

In fact, there is little difference between being on top of your personal finance as there is to being in control of your own personal health. Without taking care of your personal health you could find yourself having some high medical fees to cover.

As witness in my job to how health covers are explained to policy-holders, I find that many people leave the fund centers without having been given enough information. Many times they expect their policy to cover their visits to hospital, dentists, opticians etc. Unfortunately, only when they are in need of those services do they become aware of the limitations of the cover they have chosen.

Health Insurance is not difficult to understand. Healthy Care has been created as a consumers aid and aims to turn the Health Insurance fine print into clear easy-to-understand, everyday language.
