Airlines have cancelled and delayed hundreds of flights in the U.S. sparking travel chaos during the busiest Fourth of July weekend since the pandemic, which has been dubbed 'Airmageddon.'
Around 48 million people are expected to travel this weekend with AAA estimating 3.5million would take to the air. But the actual number of passengers flying may be dramatically higher as, the Transportation Security Administration screened more than 2.4 million travelers at airports on Thursday alone - up 17 percent from the Fourth of July Friday in 2019.
Many fliers will be facing disappointment, with 604 flights canceled by 2:30pm, and 2,879 have been delayed, according to Flight Aware, which reported that by the end of Friday, 586 U.S. flights were called off and 7,773 were re...

Rabban Shimon ben Gamaliel used to say: on three things does the world stand: On justice, on truth and on peace, as it is said: “execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates”(Zecharya 8:16) (Avot 1:18).
A Significant Peace
Last week we saw that Rashba”g presents din and emet as two of the three values that sustain the world. The third value is shalom. Though we value and strive for justice and truth, it is critical that we also sustain and foster shalom. A world that values only truth and justice is not sustainable (Derech Eretz Zuta, Perek Shalom).
The Torah places shalom at the climax of Birkat Kohanim (Bamidbar 6:26). Chazal followed suit with “all of our tefillot” (including Shemoneh Esrei, Bentching, and Kaddish). Shas Mishnayot also concludes...

Hunter Biden’s hard drive contained an enviable lineup of contacts for top US officials tasked with overseeing the US-China relationship, and at least 10 senior Google executives — raising new questions about the extent to which Joe Biden’s well-connected son could have leveraged his connections for personal profit, The NY Post reported today.
Many of the top-level government officials would have been in position to help Hunter Biden’s business aspirations in China during father’s term as vice president from 2008 to 2016. Throughout that period, he infamously looked to capitalize from his family name and connections — often while his father conducted sensitive state business.
As for the Google braintrust, one former exec there told The Post that Hunter...
Airlines have canceled more than 1,100 U.S. flights since Friday and nearly 11,000 were delayed, a tough start to a busy holiday weekend after a messy spring for air travel angered passengers and drew sharp criticism from Washington.
On Friday, the delays included close to 1,000 American Airlines flights, nearly 30% of the carrier’s mainline schedule for the day, and 784 Delta flights, a quarter of the airline’s schedule, according to a tally from FlightAware. Thunderstorms delayed many flights at some of the country’s busiest hubs. Delays eased on Saturday but topped 3,000, less than half of Friday’s.
Already this year, the rate of flight cancellations and delays in June was higher than before the pandemic as a result of ba...

Three of the five attended: Peter Franchot, Doug Gansler, and Tom Perez; while John King and Wes Moore did not.
As a result of the recent U.S...

Hezbollah acknowledged the launch of the three drones, saying that "On Saturday afternoon, three unarmed drones were launched t...
The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Saturday evening agreed to a forensic investigation by the US of the bullet that they claim killed Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh, Kan News reported, quoting a statement by the Palestinian Authority's general prosecutor to Al Jazeera.
"We will not give the bullet that killed Shireen Abu Aqleh to Israel at all," the prosecutor added.
