Tiger Woods holds fans-only Q&A via social media Facebook, Twitter

The Q and A video on Tiger's website:   http://web.tigerwoods.com/video/20946851

Tiger Woods holds fans-only Q and A via social media Facebook, Twitter - ESPN:

"The only questions Tiger Woods fielded before his next tournament came from his fans.

Instead of a news conference before this week's Wells Fargo Championship, Woods answered 19 questions Monday in a 15-minute video posted on his website. The questions were submitted through Facebook and Twitter.

The timing of the decision was peculiar. Woods is coming off his worst performance ever at the Masters, a tie for 40th in which he finished 15 shots behind and was roundly criticized for kicking his 9-iron in disgust after a poor tee shot on the par-3 16th hole in the second round.

Woods typically speaks to the media before every tournament. This time, he will not speak to reporters until his first round Thursday at Quail Hollow."

Code-sharing confusion scuttles Bahamas vacation

What?!

Since when does a colleague qualify to be a person's supervisor.  Give us a break!

Code-sharing confusion scuttles Bahamas vacation:

"When you're on a code-sharing flight, it means you need to be extra careful. Don't just call your airline to confirm the flight - call the airline operating the flight. A system error like this, while rare, might be caught with a simple call.

If you're stuck in a situation like this again, politely ask the Expedia representative to escalate the call. You can do that by calmly asking to speak with that person's direct supervisor - not "a supervisor" or "someone in charge" since that can be interpreted in many ways and could land you with an agent's colleague who will proceed to tell you it can't be done."

Overhead Bin - Mishandled bag rates drop, but tensions remain in the airline cabin

Mishandled bag rates drop, but tensions remain in the airline cabin

I'm definitely in the 72.4 %.   ... and I've certainly seen my share of attempts to put a piano in the overhead bin, 'nuff said.

Overhead Bin - Mishandled bag rates drop, but tensions remain in the airline cabin:

"Either way, for many travelers, the improvement in mishandled-bag rates is likely to be considered small consolation in light of the crush of carry-on bags in the cabin. In fact, according to a report issued by U.S. Travel, an industry trade association, last November, 72.4 percent of air travelers listed “people who bring too many carry-on bags through the security checkpoint” as one of their top five frustrations — more than any other complaint.

“All [the airlines] have done is move the problem from the belly of the plane to the cabin,” said Hess. “You sit there and someone comes in and insists they can fit their piano in the overhead bin. It’s ridiculous.”"

  • Translating his Masters IQ into well-executed shots
  • Is he pulverizing the par-5s?
Can Tiger Woods win? Watch for these signs – USATODAY.com:

"Woods has 12 top-10s in 15 starts as a professional at Augusta National. In his last seven starts here, he hasn't done worse than a tie for sixth. Over time, patterns have formed regarding what happens when he wins here and when he doesn't.
Here are factors that might decide whether Woods breaks through again this weekend and dons a fifth green jacket."
