Reasonable amount of time to spend in NYC?

We are possibly taking a trip to NYC to see a Broadway show - the timing will depend on when we can get tickets, but likely April-ish. We've never been before, and would love to do some sightseeing - how long is long enough for a quick trip to actually see things? Recommendations welcome! [more inside]

Where to go to escape winter

Hi. I’m looking for somewhere to go that is WARM (at least 70 degrees) and CHEAP for a long weekend in January. Preferably somewhere with a short travel time from Maryland. Budget is ~$1000 for me, a friend, flights, and 2 hotel rooms. The only goal is to sit outside and soak in heat and synthesize vitamin D. We looked at Vegas and Miami but they were too pricey and we don't really care about amenities (beyond a pool) or stuff to do.

Vegas hotel

We are going to Vegas to see a particular concert over the weekend. We might do some slots but don't plan on gambling much. We will go out to eat. We might go dancing. We will likely tack on some other shows. I don't enjoy Vegas-y drunken crowds. Where should we stay?

Where to vacation with jerk doggo within driving distance of the PNW?

I need to find a five day low-cost trip that needs to be driving distance (6-10 hours okay) of Seattle. However, my dog is a jerk that hates all people. I can keep him muzzled when around people, but we need a cabin or someplace that will let us be separate from humans and accept dogs. [more inside]

What actually happens when a plane crashes?

When an airplane crashes, what logistically happens for the next of kin? How are they informed? How are they kept up-to-date? I'm interested in any anecdotal information or articles/books that explain and detail what it is actually like for those left waiting and wondering what has happened.

Which SteriPen should I get for my trip to Cote d'Ivoire?

Going to be in Cote d'Ivoire for a few months for public health work. Will primarily be in Abidjan and am not too concerned about water there, but work will entail some fieldwork where I will probably leave Abidjan and go to less developed areas. I've read up on my water sanitation options, and I think I'd like to go with a SteriPen, as I do think I need a purifier, and a filter. 1. Which steripen to get? 2. Which filter to get to go with it? More details below. [more inside]

Should we skip Paris?

I moved recently to London from the US, and my mother is visiting me from Los Angeles for the next two weeks. We had planned a 3 day jaunt to Paris via Eurostar but now I'm wondering if we should skip it due to the political unrest. I can't tell if we're being overly cautious or if it makes sense to just duck out this time. [more inside]
