Where Do the Flight Attendants Sleep?

It’s not just holidaymakers who need to rest their heads during a long-haul flight.

Hard-working cabin crew also need to take some well-deserved time off. But have you ever wondered just where they go during their down time?

Due to revenue-generating passenger seats taking priority, Crew Rest Departments (CRCs) after often squashed into confined areas where space is at a premium.

EPA: Every Puddle A Wetland

from CFACT:

Congressman Lamar Smith, Chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, posted a series of maps he obtained via a FOIA request that EPA is using to plot wetlands.

Wetlands are a particularly sensitive issue right now as EPA evaluates its proposed rule to broaden what constitutes “waters of the United States” (WOTUS). The new rule would bring huge new territory under EPA’s control under the Clean Water Act.
