    This is an interesting article that notes that home-made soft-cloth masks actually increased the risk for healthcare workers in one study. I wonder if this is because most home-made masks are made...

    The virus laden droplets also can enter through the eyes, so another layer of protection would be wearing glasses/goggles and a hat.

    I'll give you my experience with a Nikon Z7 mirrorless, which is smaller than a DSLR but larger than 4/3 or micro 4/3 mirrorless systems.

    I flew to and from Chicago O'hare last week, and the airline had a cleaning crew go through the planes with a huge bag of various disinfectants. So the airlines are trying. Planes may be safer than...

    I have an Osprey Ultralight. It folds into a very small built-in pouch that you can slide into a pant pocket, so it's truly packable.

    Most US carriers sell phones by rolling in the cost of the device into your monthly charge. AT&T generally doesn't unlock phones until you pay off the phone (usually 12-24 months) or 2 months has...

    Hah, that's funny about her distaste for lounges. Waiting in a crammed NYC airplane terminal gets old fast, so lounges are a life saver. JFK Terminal 8 actually is the least cramped terminal I've...
