On 17 July 2007, at 17:19 local time, an Airbus A-320, operated as flight JJ3054 by TAM Linhas Aéreas, was on its way from Porto Alegre, Brazil, for a domestic flight to Congonhas Airport in... More > São Paulo city, São Paulo State, Brazil. During the landing, at 18:54 local time, the aircraft veered to the left, overran the left edge of the runway, collided with a building, and with a fuel service station. All persons on board – six crewmembers, and 181 passengers – perished. The crash also caused 12 fatalities on the ground. The runway had recently been resurfaced, but it did not yet have water-channeling grooves cut into it to reduce the danger of hydroplaning, making landing during rain a dangerous endeavour. Flight Data Recorder information showed that immediately prior to touchdown, both thrust levers were in CL (or "climb") position, with engine power being governed by the flight computer's autothrottle system.< Less

I am a former model. I began modeling at the age of 12 and managed to find some success in the industry. By the age of 14, I had signed a contract with an agency in New York City and spent the... More > summers walking down runways, making contacts, and appearing in magazines. But the road to my success was a long and windy one. My mother and I encountered a great deal of scams when I first tried to break into the industry and it ended up costing us thousands of dollars. I wrote this booklet to give aspiring models a clean-cut, no nonsense resource for starting their modeling careers. I call it a booklet because it is super short. I don’t fill it with fluff or stories. I stick to the facts. My hope is that readers like you will manage to get their start in such a cutthroat industry without falling prey to the numerous scam artists out there. I hope this is helpful to you and wish you the best of luck!< Less

John Crane is an American who prefers living in Spain. While traveling in the country he loves, he stays until funds are exhausted, going to great lengths to extend his visits. As his bankroll... More > diminishes, his standard of living slides from affluent tourist traveling with runway model Christy Lent, to homeless vagabond sharing Barcelona’s oceanfront mountain, sometimes violently, with an international community of squatters and junkies.
