FRANCE SAYS ONE BLACK BOX HAS BEEN FOUND, but THERE ARE NO SURVIVORS.

FLYING ANXIETY BREAKOUT-TCMON-CGS


TO ADD TO WHAT CLAY WAS SAYING ---

WHILE AN INCREASE IN TRAVELER ANXIETY IS TO BE EXPECTED AFTER THREE DEADLY PLANE INCIDENTS IN SUCH A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, AIR TRAVEL IS STILL AMONG THE WORLD'S SAFEST TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS.

INDUSTRY ANALYSTS AND SAFETY EXPERTS SAY THEY CAN FIND NO COMMON THEMES, NOR DO THEY THINK THE EVENTS INDICATE THAT FLYING IS SUDDENLY BECOMING LESS SAFE.

ACCORDING TO A M-I-T STATS:

YOUR CHANCES OF BEING KILLED IN A PLANE CRASH ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD ARE ROUGHLY ONE-IN-4-MILLION.

BUT IN NORTH AMERICA AND EUROPE.THAT DROPS TO ONE IN 25-MILLION!

THAT MEANS YOU COULD GO 60-THOUSAND YEARS, FLYING EVERY DAY, BEFORE A FATAL CRASH. Return to index of stories...

PURSE SNATCHING BREAKOUT-TCMON-SS-TCMON


NBC-2 DID SOME RESEARCH ON WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT A PURSE SNATCHING.

JUST LEAVE YOUR PURSE AT HOME.

CARRY ONLY NECESSARY ITEMS. YOUR I-D AND MONEY, IN A WALLET, TUCKED SAFELY IN YOUR POCKET.

IF YOU NEED YOUR MAKEUP, KEYS, PHONE. CONSIDER PUTTING THEM IN A BACKPACK STRAPPED AROUND BOTH SHOULDERS SO THAT IT CAN'T EASILY BE SNATCHED.

OR, CONSIDER PUTTING THEM IN A BAG THAT WRAPS AROUND YOUR STOMACH AND CAN BE HIDDEN FROM VIEW.

AND HOW CONVENIENT, BECAUSE FANNY PACKS ARE TOTALLY COMING BACK IN STYLE AGAIN!. AND THERE ARE MORE FASHIONABLE ONES OUT THERE THAN THIS ONE.

AND A FAST FACT ON FANNY PACKS, THEY'RE CALLED THAT BECAUSE THEY USED TO BE WORN ON THE REAR-END BACK IN THE DAY.

REMEMBER, THAT YOU ALWAYS COME BEFORE YOUR PURSE.

IF SOMEONE PULLS IT AWAY, LET IT GO!

EXPERTS ADVISE YOU TO NEVER FIGHT TO KEEP IT. Return to index of stories...
