Northwest Airlines announced today that they will be cutting 2,500 jobs. These job losses will affect pilots, flight attendants, mechanics as well as others working for the company. The job cuts have been prompted by the high fuel prices and the reduction of flights provided by the airlines.

This is not the only airline that is cutting back on workers, Air Tran announced on Monday that they will be firing 480 employees from their workforce. Other airlines are announcing employee downsizing as well, which includes, American, Continental and United.

Chief Executive, Douglas M. Steenland told the press that “fuel costs have more than doubled in the past year.” They are taking action to control costs and try to increase revenue.

Want a Unique Vacation? Explore a Cave!

Cave exploring has become a favorite adventure activity for many Americans. Whether you're taking a short, self-guided or guided tour of a commercial cave, or engaging in advanced spelunking of non-commercial caves, there's just something magical about entering a cave. The feel of the cave air, the smells, the quite, the utter darkness when the lamps are turned off.

In caving you will discover the beauty of nature and marvel at rock formations and crystals that took thousands, and even millions, of years to shape and develop. Caves come in different shapes and sizes. There are caves that are horizontal, dry, hot, humid and sandy, while others are vertical, cold, flooded and muddy. There are even caves that are located under rivers and seas.

How to Say No at a Timeshare Presentation

How to Say No at a Timeshare Presentation

Most timeshare companies that run presentations in exchange for free gifts or heavily discounted accommodation require that, if you are married, both you and your spouse must attend the presentation together. Apparently this method is so successful that, at many timeshare presentations, single people aren't even eligible to attend.

So you won't be able to use the excuse that you need to consult with your husband or wife before buying because your spouse is sitting next to you. That's why you really need to learn how to say no at the timeshare presentation.

Orlando Timeshare Tours

Orlando Timeshare Tours

Orlando FL

If you're going on vacation in Orlando soon and will have some time to spare while you are down there, it might be worth your while to go on some timeshare tours. With so many timeshares in Orlando competing for sales, you can often get some pretty good freebies for touring a new timeshare resort for a few hours.

On my last trip to Florida, I picked up free tickets to Universal Studios and Sea World and a few cash bonuses as well by doing a couple of different tours. This saved me quite a bit of money during my vacation, but if I'd thought to negotiate better I probably could have received even more free goodies. So if you are in a position to negotiate, do so! Usually all you need to do to get a better offer is sound less than enthusiastic about doing it.
