I love the company and I love working for them, overall they are great to their employees. The Luxottica company itself, is of course a business, and has grown exponentially even within the past couple of months (recently bought out another competitor, Sunglass Warehouse).

When John Woodrow Cox set out to explore gun violence from the perspective of children seared by it, his subjects’ age made the stories very challenging to report.

Sea Search Armada (SSA) says it located what’s left of the San Jose all the way back in 1982.

I have been told by loving family members that they are just waiting for me to die. Because that all they can do is watch. Those words burned my heart. At the time that the US began bombing Afghanistan, I was spending a few days in Vienna. You’d have thought that security would have been particularly high at that time.
