    Should Legacy Airlines in the United States Be Concerned About the Big Three Airlines of the Persian Gulf?
    Last year, the rise of three airlines based in the Persian Gulf was starting to represent stiff competition for legacy airlines based in the United States; and the chief executive officers of the American airlines filed a complaint citing unfair and illegal subsidies from the governments of where the Gulf airlines are based.

    Three Students Funded in Scholarship Program — Thanks to Milepoint Cares
    Thanks to the support of Milepoint Cares, the Elisabeth Lenes Stipend / Scholarship program would not have been able to fund three students from Plains High School to live with a Norwegian family for one year — and morten69 is very grateful: “We are truly making a dramatic difference in students' lives and giving them the chance to experience new and exiting things! The first student to come from Plains to Norway through our scholarship program was actually the first student in 18 years leaving Plains High School as an exchange student. Thank you for helping us make this possible.”
