AIRLINE STRIKE

News

60 Flights were able to land, but Qantas Airways has quickly grounded its global fleet, suddenly locking out striking workers after many weeks of disruptions, which could close down the world's 10th largest airline plane by plane.

Australia's government called an emergency arbitration hearing that lasted nearly two hours before the judges adjourned it to issue a decision later tonight.

Qantas previously announced that it had more than doubled annual profit to AU$250 million, but warned the business environment was too challenging to forecast earnings for the current fiscal year.

Snow kidding. folks... this is not a Treat, but Mother Nature's Trick!

NYC has the potential for up to 5, inches of snowfall, but because the ground is warm, these flakes are likely to melt on contact.

While the city is no stranger to frigid Octobers, snow before Halloween is a rarity.
According to historians, our earliest snowfall in the city was a paltry 0.5 inches in Central Park on Oct. 15, 1876. There have only been three October days with measurable snowfall since the city began keeping records in 1869.

The fabulous St. Louis Cardinals have won their 11th World Series title by crushing the Texas Rangers, 6-2, in an exciting series that went to all seven games.

After winning Game 6 on a walk-off home run in the 11th inning, the Cardinals made darn sure Game 7 never went that far by taking a commanding lead in the third inning and extending it in the fifth and then the seventh innings.

The Texas Rangers jumped out to a quick 2-0 temporary lead, but those would prove to be the only runs they would score Friday night. Don't mess with The Cards, Texas!
