Here is the dilemma. Do we really trust that people will turn off their phones? I don't want to be on that plane when some Samsung phone explodes and starts the plane on fire. If I had one I would return it today

FAA has a draft flight directive that should be published by end of the week, no Samsung phones allowed on any flight, not in cabin, not in checked baggage

Yep two of my flights last week. Made me giggle when the guy next to said "that's bs and discrimination" no dude that's called safety.

Good luck enforcing that one

Yeah you know people will not turn them off.....

Is it all Samsung phones? They only called out the note 7 and just said that it needs to be turned off completely for the duration of the flight

The FAA draft directive calls for all Samsung phones and tablets, it's still draft

We have family in the area who would care for the home but I’d want it to be fully booked when we are not there to help offset the rehab investment.

Hello everyone,

I'm new on this platform and I'm here to understand about the opportunities that might be available for the upcoming spring term.

I'm currently pursuing my masters in pace university, information systems. I have 14 months of experience in sales back in india and worked in the world's largest ed tech i.e Byju's the learning app. I'm looking for opportunities regarding sales and marketing internship. And can start working from January 2023.

After finally getting approval for my ivf cycle and being on birth control for 2 months -my ivf cycle was delayed for a dominant follicle and they want to reevaluate several weeks later. I don’t have that kind of time. I’m also starting to question the abilities of my doctor as well since his nurses try to act like the doctors and respond on his behalf. Thinking of jumping ship elsewhere.
