More flights were late and more customers complained to the government about flights in May, the Department of Transportation reported Wednesday. The largest airlines in the U.S. arrived on time for 76.9% of flights in May, the Air Travel Consumer Report said. That's down from 79.6% in April, and 79.4% in May of last year. Cancellations increased as well. Major U.S. carriers canceled 1.9% of their flights in the U.S., compared to 1.1% the airlines canceled in both April 2014 and May 2013.
The reason Boston’s residents didn’t want to be Athens is the same reason the residents of Oslo or Krakow or Stockholm don’t want to be Athens. Hosting an Olympics is a corporate sinkhole sucking billions of dollars and a city’s future into a bottomless abyss of excess. The internet is clogged with slide shows of empty, broken, useless stadiums built in the euphoria of an coming Olympics or World Cup then abandoned soon after, allowed to fill with weeds, rodents and other signs of human escape. On Friday the IOC will vote to see which city is going to host the 2022 Winter Games. The vote is between Beijing and Almaty, Kazakhstan. And this may well represent the future of Olympic bidding – cities in countries who will spend any amount to run a Games hoping to make an international political statement.
Hart of Dixie fans, listen up! Rachel Bilson wants to clarify the reason that the long-running CW show was canceled. While she doesn't necessarily give the exact reason behind the network's decision, she does list a reason that played no role in the show's ending: that of her being pregnant. In a photo of herself on Instagram dressed in character as Zoe Hart, Bilson explained that her real-life pregnancy had nothing to do with the choice to end it.
These supermodels are willing to do anything for Love! Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Suki Waterhouse have traveled the world, walked the most haute couture runways and have even dated some older men, but at the end of the day, they're still pretty young! It's no wonder Love magazine had them pose for an editorial piece called Just Kids. The spread, which features the girls posing in positions and places unlike any of their other campaigns, shows the models in a very rustic setting. In one photo, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is lying on a wooden-planked floor surrounded by straw. Her tank appears torn and her facial expression exudes a sort of lost feeling. This is definitely a side of Kendall we've never seen before!
The House of Representatives is on the brink of leaving for the summer. Speaker John Boehner told Republicans in a closed-door meeting Tuesday that the chamber is planning to begin their month-long summer break at 5 p.m. Wednesday. Of course, the early break is contingent on House Republicans being able to clear a three-month extension of highway funding Wednesday. House Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan — a conservative leader from Ohio — said he was happy that an extension of the Export-Import Bank would not be included. The Senate also has to clear the measure.
Hot damn, Olivia Culpo, your body is insane! Nick Jonas, you might not want to torture yourself by looking at these extremely sexy photos of your ex-girlfriend. Had she ever posed nude before? How did this shoot come about? Our questions are answered an interview with Treats magazine, hitting newsstands today. Olivia tells Treats, "I have never done a nude shoot before. I had been asked, but honestly I did not feel comfortable because I was fearful of how it would be perceived. Once I realized this was an opportunity to express myself in a way I hadn't before, in such an organic and candid sense, the experience became more about art and emotion than me as a physical being."
