Dick Devos and the FAA

Education
The Federal Aviation Administration has been announcing numerous policy updates this year, as well as some significant changes at different airports. This includes the new $40.9 million for the new tower at GSO. There are also new changes for several other airports, including security and technology regulations. All of these changes come after the FAA has been working with its Management Advisory Council to get advice on what’s best for future growth, policies, and regulations.   The Management Advisory Council was started in response to President Trump’s allegations that the FAA wasn’t doing enough to keep America competitive against foreign markets, particularly when it came to airport technology and security.

Education, School

Since its founding 60 years ago, rowing crew is one of the things that OCC is most well-known for and has since seen 10 of its students go on to do so for the Olympic championships. Yet surprisingly, a good majority on the rowing teams have never as much as picked up an oar before entering community college. During a typical school year, about 80 men sign up to be on the crew, whereas, only about half of the women sign up for the women’s team.

Unfortunately many of today's products don't live up to their own hype and are more known for being big disappointments. Brands such as L'Oréal, Pantene, Olay, Neutrogena, and Dove aren't totally bad, but they sure do have a lot of additives in them which is bad for your scalp. Being aware of your area's climate plays a huge role in how your hair is managed.
