I don’t recommend anything other than Briggs and Riley.

Tumi isn’t Tumi since they were sold. Quality is down and the warranty is just ordinary

You can buy travel pro, but you’re probably not getting the same bag the pilots use and it doesn’t have a true lifetime warranty. There is a pilot supply store inside Cincinnati airport. I was in there other day and a pilot was complaining about the bag he had recently bought, the guy was giving him about 50% toward a new one.

If there’s another brand, I don’t know it

The Travelpro platinum elite line is really great, moderately priced, and has lifetime warranty including carrier-caused damages. If you haven’t given this a look yet I highly recommend you do so. They have a good display at the NYC Macy’s and I’m sure at other outlets too

Go look at all 3...I have Briggs and Tumi. Briggs is great value (less expensive) but Tumi is lighter and weight sometimes matters

Do any Staff feel their Seniors are rude via Teams chat? The questions are pertaining to the work I completed, but if they just gave me a call I could answer all their questions. Feels like they’re very negative and looking for the worst parts of my work.

Just paid several hundred dollars to find out the old man is constipated. Prey for poop, my friends

So I recently started a position with Fox. When it was presented to me in interview, I was told I would be working aligned with Fox Sports & Entertainment, not so much News. Now that I’m here, I’m seeing everything I’ll be doing is with the News team & makes me uncomfortable. No diversity, outdated software & process.
Financially, it’s the best position I been in. But mentally in this environment, it’s depressing & slow. Nothing innovative or engaging. What would you do?

I am looking for resources other than Kumon to improve english reading and writing for my 2nd grader. We tried kumon for 6 months but all they are asking him to trace words and leaving most of work to be done at home which my kid sorta hates. Do you have private tutors for kids or largely depend on school or other resources. I am trying to build good foundation for their academics so they can do well in next grades.
