Plane tickets are about to get more expensive

Play Video A look back at the year in aviation By Nathaniel Meyersohn Flying to the beach may be more expensive this summer. Rising fuel prices are pressuring airline profits. That means airlines will charge higher airfare. It’s difficult to predict how much more expensive seats will become or the timing of fare increases, but the message is the unanimous from the major carriers. “Consumers will pay more to travel because of higher fuel costs,” said Henry Harteveldt, a travel analyst and the founder of Atmosphere Research Group. “I think it will affect summer travel for people who have not already booked their flights.” Related: Southwest bookings fall after fatal accident Airlines have a few ways to build in higher fuel expenses, he explained.

Jack in The Box Says Wages Are Behind the Increase in Taco Prices

Signage is displayed outside a Jack In The Box Inc. fast food restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee, U.S., on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2017. Jack in The Box Inc. is scheduled to release earnings figures on February 22. Photographer: Luke Sharrett/Bloomberg Taco Tuesday just got more expensive, at least for diners in the Golden State. Jack in the Box Inc. says its franchisees have hiked taco prices at some locations due to wage increases taking hold across California. The San Diego-based fast-food chain is largely concentrated there, where the minimum pay was raised to $11 an hour this year for large employers, compared with $10.50 a year ago. Tacos used to be two for 99 cents at Jack in the Box. Some menus now list two for $1.29, and a customer’s online petition is looking to reverse that. “We did a...

Valve is not your friend, and Steam is not healthy for gaming

The illusion behind the “Good Guy Valve” reputation By Tim Colwill   Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images The views expressed in this article are those of the author and do not necessarily represent the views of, and should not be attributed to, Polygon as an organization. More on how Polygon writes opinion pieces. The drive to be on the bleeding edge of technology powers the PC gaming community. We want nothing more than to run our ridiculously powerful rigs on barely stable beta drivers, with our CPUs overclocked to speeds that are neither advisable nor guaranteed to be safe for our systems. It’s a good match for the ship-first-iterate-later approach of major Silicon Valley companies who want to expand at all costs and don’t care what it takes. But companies like Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, Fiverr...

7 Steps to Remove Toxic Beliefs and Overcome Confirmation Bias

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” Growing up as a high-level swimmer, I discovered at an early age that the results I get in life are proportional to the amount of hard work I put in. Ever since, I believed deeply that if I worked harder, I’d reach my goals faster and have more of what I want in life. That belief drove a lot of the choices I made and profoundly impacted how I lived my life. But what if this belief was actually… misguided? What if that was just a story I was telling myself… that wasn’t entirely true? Then I’d pretty much be shooting myself in the foot, every day, without realizing it. Hmmm. Now think about this: What if some of YOUR core beliefs (about yourself, others, and the world) were false, and are actually sabotaging your happiness, health, and ...

6 Things That Happen to Your Body When You Don’t Have Sex For a While

According to 2016 research, millennials are having less sex than any generation since the 1920s. This is a bad thing for a few reasons: 1) sex is fun, and you should be having as much of it as you can, and 2) they’re all missing out on the many well-documented health benefits of having sex regularly. Of course, that’s not always possible for various reasons — maybe your partner is out of town, or you’re just in between relationships. But what actually happens to your body when you don’t have sex for a long time? Here are 6 of the most surprising side effects. 1) Your rhythm gets thrown off the next time you have sex. You know that old expression, “if you don’t use it, you lose it?” Science suggests that to a degree, that might be true. A 2008 study in the American Journal of Medicine concl...
