Tucson has a new non-stop flight to New York’s JFK airport.

A non-stop flight is better than a flight with a connection because you don’t get stuck in a place that’s not your destination. The inaugural flight was on Oct. 7, 2016, and I was on that flight. Before I got on the plane, I got free giveaways like a water bottle, a bag, a statute of liberty crown, and a bagel for breakfast.

There was a singer that sang songs from the 1970s about New York. He is a football player for UofA and a singer.

You can tell Luca, a new Phoenix-based magazine, is different the minute you see it. Christine Robertson, the CEO, explains that Luca is Italian for “bringer of light.” As you hold the magazine the gloss title does just that, it reflects the light. The magazine is different inside as well. Of course Luca is filled with the professional photo layouts and articles on fashion and make-up that are fun to flip through, but it is so much more. Robertson saw the need for a more positive message for girls and Luca is the result.

Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks. It all began in November 1621, when the pilgrims got together with the Wampanoag Indians for an autumn feast, which is now regarded as America’s first Thanksgiving.

It has been an annual holiday in the U.S since 1863. Many people celebrate Thanksgiving by going to a nice restaurant or going to someone’s house to celebrate with the whole family. Some people even have a checklist that tells who is bringing what dish to share.
