Woman says WOW airlines ruined her dream trip to Paris

ST. LOUIS – It’s one of the latest airlines to land in St. Louis Lambert airport.

WOW air is known for it’s cheap, no-frills flights to Europe, but some Wow customers are warning if you book with this discount airline you’ll get what you pay for.

“I was excited to go to Paris. It was one place I said i’d like to go,” said Valerie Bourrage of St. Louis.

She began planning her trip to Paris a year ago and booked with WOW air and felt good about it.
“It was a very good deal,” said Bourrage. It was early June and Bourrage says everything was fine until she got to her first lay over in France.

“When we got to Lyon, my cousin got a text message saying your flight was over booked to Paris and you have to get on a bus,” said Bourrage.

After a six hour bus ride, Bourrage arrived in Paris at 2 a.m. She says by then, the hotel gave her room away and she realized something else was now missing. “I was in Paris the whole time with no luggage,” said Bourrage.

WOW air had no idea where her luggage was, but Bourrage kept calling them for answers.

“All the phone calls were international. So I run up my cell phone bill making international calls. I was a little down and depressed about it,” said Bourrage.

Somehow, she managed to salvage the rest of the trip.

She’s been back home for two weeks now but she still hasn’t been reunited with her luggage.
“Still no luggage. I’ve been making phone calls. I’ve sent several emails, several claims. Still nothing,” said Bourrage.

The 5 On Your Side I-Team found dozens of similar complaints of WOW air losing baggage for weeks at a time. Most complaints are documented on travel sites like Trip Advisor.

Bourrage doesn’t know if she’ll ever get her belongings back, but she says she wants to warn others who are putting their travel dreams in the airlines hands.

“They were so unorganized and even one of the workers there said ‘Well this is a low budget airline’. i never want to fly with them again,” said Bourrage.

Bourrage says she had about $3,000 worth of stuff in her luggage.

After we reached out, a spokesperson for WOW air told 5 On Your Side they’re stepping up their efforts to track down Bourrage’s luggage.

In cases of over-bookings they also say they always try to reroute passengers or offer refunds.

How is your American Dream different than your parents’?

The concept of the “American Dream” may be older than America itself. It can be traced back as far as 1630, when John Winthrop gave his “city upon a hill” sermon to his fellow Puritan colonists as they sailed to Massachusetts. The idea that America could be a place where everyone had an opportunity for prosperity and happiness is what the United States was founded on (with a healthy dose of hypocrisy, since black people were enslaved and women couldn’t vote). But while we’ve had the notion for over 300 years, it wasn’t until 1931 that we got the phrase: historian James Truslow Adams popularized the idea of the “American Dream” in his book The Epic of America.

Since then, popular culture has latched on to the idea of the American Dream as some combination of getting married, holding down a good job from which you can retire, owning a nice house, and having 2.5 kids.

But what does the American Dream mean in 2018?

Lately, American employers are adding jobs at a fast clip across a wide range of industries. Yet economists have struggled to explain why wages aren’t rising as quickly as the trend-lines would suggest they ought to. Indeed, wage stagnation has been the common theme among U.S. workers for at least the past three decades; income inequality is getting worse; and the tax overhaul President Trump signed into law last winter is expected to benefit tech giants and rich people who don’t work more than poor people who do. To make matters worse, contract work, persistent gender and racial pay gaps, lack of nationwide protections like paid family leave, and other factors are conspiring to withhold the bulk of the country’s recent economic gains from most of the workers who’ve contributed to them.

All these changes are impacting how Americans plan for the future and think about success.  Many Americans of all ages are finding circumstances, at least as much as their own values, reshaping their notions of “success.” When LinkedIn recently asked users to reflect on that word, the top response was “not living paycheck-to-paycheck.”

So this Independence Day, Fast Company wants to hear from you: How does your definition of the American Dream differ from your parents’?

Dream, reality of remote life contrasted

David Barnes reviews Out Of The Wild, by Charlie Paterson. Published by Craig Print.

There are many tales of struggles to tame patches of New Zealand wilderness. One of the most salutary attempts was the failed settlement of Jamestown; James Macandrew’s plan for a West Coast port for Otago province on the shores of Lake McKerrow in Northern Fiordland. There’s little evidence of it there now and most of the township has become part of Fiordland National Park. A few sections remain in private hands and, in the 1990s, Charlie Paterson — burnt out from his job running salmon farms — acquired one of them. Many people who spend time in the back-country, and a few who don’t, have dreamt, at least momentarily, of building a life there. Paterson set out to make his dream come true. With no income and little capital, he embarked on a plan to create a luxury lodge; later downgraded to backpacker accommodation.

Paterson pulls few punches when it comes to describing the difficulties he encountered. The obvious ones of weather, remoteness and sandflies are only the beginning. Miscalculation of the cost of flying building materials in meant that much of it was deposited at the head of the lake to save on flying time. While there may have been no alternative when he was so strapped for cash, everything had to be made up into rafts and towed down the lake, then manhandled on to the site, causing enormous delays and adding to the cash-flow woes. One chapter is devoted to his battles with bureaucracy and it is clear that, regardless of which party was in the right, Paterson’s skills in dealing with it did not match his ability to live a self-reliant lifestyle.

While the building was eventually finished and attracting customers, it was clearly a case of too little, too late and never generated a sustainable income. In 2002, seven years after starting the project, the property was sold. Much of the book was drafted by candlelight during lonely nights at Jamestown, with opening and closing remarks for each chapter written more recently. Inevitably, there’s some bitterness in the contemporaneous sections, although it is clear  the author can now look back with more objectivity.

An editor is credited in this book but it is marred by eccentric sentences  and repetition. Anyone who has dreamed of a life in the wild will find this book gives them cause for reflection on some of the challenges.

Slow down to read signs in your dreams

Your head might be in the right place but if your heart is not, then you will be reminded that unity is needed. We can make sense of a lot of issues in our lives, yet we often tend to believe they are out of control. Therefore, we render ourselves incapable of change and become just that. It is our own perception that is the deciding factor and, more often, not the actual reality. If you are shown the light, so to speak, in your dreams, it is because it is time for you to take the torch. In other words, it’s time for a change and time for you to make it.

Dear Dream Retriever: I get the message from the dreams I have had previous to the one I am sending to you. I am always driving down the road and I am going way too fast to read the signs on the side of the road. I have these dreams more often than I would like, and I know they are telling me to slow down.

In the most recent dream I had, I am reading a book and I know the book is about poetry. It is my favorite read and I am sitting in my living room, in my chair where I sit when I am reading. I try to read it but I can’t. I know that there is a message that this book is trying to give me.

I have made serious changes and am aware of my fast-paced lifestyle. I have been mindful, properly for the first time in my life, of overindulging, so I don’t get this. — Stuck, Dracut

Dear Stuck: You are on the right track being mindful of your self-undoing. The part of the interpretation you missed in the dreams previous was, you are missing the signs.

Some aspect of your life has presented an opportunity to you; you’re missing that.

The dream about poetry is not so obvious. The part of the brain that relates to language is not as active at this state. The message wasn’t the poem — it was the inspiration that a poem was supposed to give you. A poet carefully constructs a message by playing on the imagination of the reader.

There is an opportunity you are about to miss that will inspire you and give way to what you are trying achieve.

Dream boxes filled with books for all reading levels in USF-area – Story

– In the heart of Tampa’s University Area stands a beautiful bright-colored building welcoming visitors to the Harvest Hope Park. It’s one of the many new additions to the USF area, including “dream boxes,” which are basically miniature libraries filled with books for every age and every reading level. 

“We created the name dream boxes because we feel like giving access to dreams is important in this community. Picking up a book and being able to go to another place is important for the people who live here,” said Sarah Combs, CEO of the University Area Community Development Center. “We want them to dream and dream big.” 

Michael Streeper is the man behind the boxes, and he’s using his construction background to design and build each library. 

“I had no idea that this was going to get as big as it is. It’s really pretty amazing that’s gone this far. It’s very exciting,” said Michael. 

The concept is simple. Take a book; leave a book. 

“We want you to take them and we want you to use them. Take a book; leave a book. However, if you don’t leave a book we have plenty of books,” said Sarah. “We want to make sure we have the opportunity to get books into the residents’ homes who live here.” 

The dream boxes aren’t only improving literacy it’s helping bring families together. 

“I thought this was primarily for the children in the area but the families are coming as well and the children are teaching their parents to read. That’s pretty neat,” said Michael. 

Like most hometown heroes, Michael is too humble to be proud. And that makes his good deed even more special. 

“Sometimes you find those special people that come out of the blue and step up in a meaningful way and Michael is definitely one of those people,” said Sarah. 

The dream boxes are so popular, the University Area CDC is looking for funding to add 15 more libraries to the neighborhood.

Chef Lidia Bastianich continues to live American dream

Updated 7 hours ago

When celebrity chef, author and restaurateur Lidia Bastianich celebrates, two ingredients are a given: large gatherings of family and friends and food – lots of hearty, delicious Italian food.

She’s had a few good reasons to party the last few years, including the 15th anniversary of her Lidia’s Pittsburgh restaurant in 2016 and her 70th birthday in 2017.

In 2018, she celebrates a lifetime of world travels, home-cooked meals and special people with the launch of her memoir, “My American Dream: A Life of Love, Family, and Food” (Alfred A. Knopf, $28.95).

Her friends and patrons of her Lidia’s Pittsburgh restaurant in the Strip District are welcome to join the celebration at “Lidia’s Memoir Dinner” from 5-9 p.m. June 26. Bastianich will be on hand to greet guests and share some of her favorite dishes in a specially prepared dinner menu.

Her latest book, which joins her catalog of more than a dozen cookbooks and children’s books she has written, tells of her early years living with her family in Istria under communism in Yugoslavia, until they fled to Italy and in 1958, emigrated to the U.S., where she lived in North Bergen, N.J., and later settled in Queens, N.Y.

The importance of family roots

Bastianich says she feels it’s important for people to know where she came from and how she got to this country.

“It feels to me like the right moment to tell my story,” she says. “Most people don’t know that I was a refugee. When my parents decided to seek a better life for us, we had to leave everything behind. We spent two years in a refugee camp.”

When they arrived in New York, “we arrived with almost nothing,” she explains. “Today I have achieved more happiness and success than I ever thought possible. I really have lived the American dream, and I couldn’t be more grateful to this country for the new life it gave me and the opportunities it offered us.”

She credits her Grandmother Rosa and her Aunt Nina in Italy for teaching her about cooking and giving her a love for procuring food by growing fresh vegetables, picking fresh fruit, milling grain and making wine.

Simple and fresh flavors

“There was a simplicity and a freshness in the flavors and aromas of those food products that influenced me greatly and are forever embedded in my flavor memory. When I cook today, I still search for those flavors,” she says.

Bastianich is the chef/owner of four acclaimed New York City restaurants: Felidia, Becco, Esca and Del Posto, in addition to Lidia’s Pittsburgh and Lidia’s Kansas City. She also is a partner in Eataly, an artisanal Italian food and wine marketplace located in New York, Chicago, Boston, São Paulo and Los Angeles.

She is founder and president of Tavola Productions, an entertainment production company, and also has a line of pastas and sauces called Lidia’s. Her son and daughter, Joseph and Tanya, are involved in the restaurants and her other businesses.

Proud Americans

Family is very important to Bastianich, who stresses the value of sharing meals together.

“The table is the perfect place for the family and friends to gather, eat and talk,” she says.

“While enjoying and sharing food, the table is the best place to communicate and share ideas and emotions as well.”

She dedicates her memoir to her five grandchildren, Olivia, Lorenzo, Miles, Ethan and Julia, who have joined her in the kitchen on her PBS television shows.

“You are the products of my parents’ hopes and dreams for a new beginning,” she wrote. “You have my unconditional love and blessings. Go forth, flourish and help keep this great country of ours great. Our life here began as Italian immigrants but we are all proud Americans.”

Local man shares life experience through poetry, painting

Lloyd Mays is a poet, artist and author of a book called “I Came from Hog Branch”. The book is a collection of his poems and paintings that detail life as a black man in Hog Branch, just east of Brenham.

Mays says putting together a book has always been a dream of his.

“I started painting as a means of attention. I came from a large family, I was the youngest of 14 kids and no one was paying attention to me,” laughed Mays. “My mother gave me a paint by numbers set when I was 6 years old and then I started doing it without the numbers and the attention started to come.”

As people across the country gather Tuesday to celebrate Juneteenth and the abolition of slavery, Mays says it’s important for young people to remember that there was still quite a struggle for Black men and women post slavery. His honesty and creativity in his poetry reminds readers that even though life does bring about challenges, joy and happiness can be found along the way.

“I wanted people to know what it was like growing up during segregation,” said Mays. “I had a lot of feelings that were pent up when I was growing up, and through my poetry and painting I was able to release a lot of those feelings.”

Mays says he has several favorite poems that he chose to put into his book “I Came from Hog Branch”. He hopes that anyone who picks up the book will be reminded not to give up on their dreams.

“Whatever dream you have, stick with your dream. I didn’t give up on mine. A couple of times I thought about other things, but it always came back to this dream of painting and writing and I finally did it,” said Mays.

“I Came from Hog Branch” The Works of Lloyd Mays can be purchased in a few places, including the Washington on the Brazos State Park gift shop, The Barnhill Visitors Center in Downtown Brenham and The Book Nook in Brenham.

You can also contact Mays directly to purchase a copy at [email protected]

Renovation turns pub into dream home in Ghent, Belgium

Not demolition, not excavation: The first thing Bert Pieters and Yves Drieghe did after buying a derelict former pub, with dreams of turning it into their home, was throw a party.

“A lot of people were nostalgic about the place. We didn’t really have a choice,” jokes Pieters. The “place” in question was a trapezoidal 1930s building rising two levels on a corner site in Ghent, in northwestern Belgium. For years, the pub had been a popular watering hole for fans of local soccer team K.A.A. Ghent (also known as the Buffalos).

A view of the 1930s pub that’s now home to Bert Pieters and Yves Drieghe. The building’s glazed-brick facade—and the potential for a rooftop garden, a rarity in Belgium—charmed the couple.

Yves Drieghe (left), Bert Pieters, and their nine-year-old English Cocker Spaniel, Tilda, in the open-plan living and dining room on the second floor.

But when the league relocated, the pub saw its base diminished and went bankrupt; its owners were forced to sell. Pieters says he and Drieghe bought it “on the spot” after a visit two years ago with their architect, from Belgian firm MAN Architecten (MAN), seeing beyond the “mess” and “smell” to the space’s potential as a post-commercial pub-turned-dream house.

“I think the neighborhood was quite panicked about it,” Drieghe wryly says about their new purchase. “I think a lot of people thought we were going to open another pub,” Pieters adds. In this residential enclave, the pub’s closure had been bittersweet; it meant losing an area landmark, but also a welcome reprieve from the noise of revelry.

The neighbors needn’t have worried. After their party, Pieters and Drieghe, who co-own and operate Belgian branding agency Dift, set to work figuring out how to transform their new property into something livable. They knew they wanted to keep the look of the facade more or less intact, preserving its glazed bricks. The interiors, however, were a different story.

Works by artist Sanny Winters (from her book, Gent XtraBold) hang above a wooden soaking tub in the master bed’s en-suite bathroom. The white storage cabinet, left, is from Kewlox.

Walls of translucent polycarbonate devised by Werkplaats Grof let light into the master bedroom, but keep things discreetly blurred beyond. The blue cabinet (rear) is also by Werkplaats Grof.

Pieters and Drieghe left the interior masonry exposed to preserve a scruffy, post-industrial look inside.

“It looked terrible” from years of neglect, says Drieghe, recalling the building’s pre-renovation state. Luckily, Pieters and Drieghe had renovation experience, having previously revamped a house in the countryside. They sold the house when new development began to spring up around it, rendering the area more suburban than rural. This one is the couple’s third project together.

The couple started by having the pub’s bar removed (“we gave it to a friend—it was quite a nice one,” says Pieters) and cleared debris. But they left the exposed-brick interior walls as they were and kept the polished-concrete floors on the ground level, aiming to preserve the space’s scruffy, post-industrial look. The pub had no central heating, so the couple installed a hot water heating system (the master bed is heated by a radiant, underfloor system). The heat produced is distributed throughout the building by sleek radiators painted black, a point of contrast with the mottled interior brick.

Belgian homes typically have common areas on the ground level and private spaces above, Pieters explains. But here, the design team at MAN inverted this arrangement, putting the open-plan kitchen and living room upstairs and creating an en-suite master bedroom and space for additional bed and bathrooms below, taking advantage of the additional daylight on the second floor.

Natural light isn’t a problem in the master bedroom, where translucent polycarbonate walls divide this space from the central stair and hallway beyond. A triptych of limited-edition prints by French graphic designer and artist Jean Jullien, with whom Pieters and Drieghe worked on a 2016 exhibition, hangs above the bed.

Polished-concrete floors meet exposed brick walls and MDF cabinetry in this ground-floor corner.

Design studio Werkplaats Grof devised this “sleeping box” of off-the-shelf pink medium-density fiberboard (commonly referred to as MDF) on the home’s ground floor. It has a cheeky, unprintable nickname that’s a nod to other bedtime activities.

“It’s perfect,” says Pieters. “It gives us way more light [in the higher-traffic common areas] and a sort of darkened bedroom.” When it comes to natural light on the ground floor, it helps, too, that the walls are made of translucent polycarbonate panels in pine frames. The couple spotted a similar plastic paneling on display in a museum and decided to use a double-layer variation that lets light through but leaves the objects behind it as only darkened outlines.

Cheeky irreverence is a theme in the house. Beyond the peekaboo walls, balustrades throughout are made of soccer netting, in homage to the space’s previous use. The ground floor also features a “sleeping box” made of off-the-shelf pink medium-density fiberboard (better known as MDF). Designed by local firm Werkplaats Grof (which also devised the polycarbonate walls on the ground floor and the house’s kitchen), the box includes two cubbies for sleeping, one at grade and the other on a mezzanine level. Each contains a queen-size bed. In a nod to other bedtime activities, and in keeping with the playful spirit of the household, the architect gave the sleeping box an unprintable nickname.

“It’s a good solution if you don’t have much space and you want to create an extra bedroom,” says Pieters, noting that each level of their three-story home measures 68 square meters, or about 730 square feet.

Fire engine-red structural steel is offset by the neutral color palette of the kitchen’s MDF cabinetry. The wood-burning stove (left) is by Norwegian brand Jøtul. The sofa is from Muuto, The green cart (center), here used as a side table, is vintage. The pillow with with the eye motif is by Walter Van Beirendonck for Ikea.

The fun is more wholesome upstairs, where an open-plan kitchen, composed of water-resistant MDF panels, opens up to a combined living and dining room where new structural steel is a vibrant, fire engine red.

To maximize the amount of sunlight in the space, MAN Architecten punched expansive single-pane windows out of the facade, which also create seating inside. The couple’s dogs, a 9-year-old English Cocker Spaniel, Tilda, and 12-year-old Labrador, Hektor, take full advantage. “I sit there every evening,” says Pieters. “And the dogs sleep there. It’s made them popular in the neighborhood.”

In a nod to the building’s past as a hangout for local soccer fans, the design team at MAN Architecten used netting for balustrades throughout the house.

Broad windows on the facade reach out toward the street to maximize interior light and create seats inside. The front door is hard to find by design, says homeowner Bert Pieters. “We don’t have a doorbell because we don’t like unexpected visitors,” he jokes.

Pieters and Drieghe departed in another major way from the typical suburban Belgian house: Their pub-turned-home has a roof garden. Just off a small multipurpose room, a set of glass accordion-style doors leads to a sanctuary of vegetables, several small trees, and a seating area atop a wooden deck.

“We had to be quite careful, because [the trees we have] can’t be too aggressive in growing,” says Pieters. The couple chose ash and Japanese cherry trees, along with wisteria. The wisteria’s purple blooms should be fully mature, and drape alluringly over the crown of the building, in a couple of years, explains Pieters. Just enough time, Drieghe adds, laughing, for the itinerant pair to move again.

Do dreams really come true? | News, Sports, Jobs

Do you have dreams? Oh, I don’t mean the ones we have at night while we sleep but the ones we have during the day for our lives, families and world. Do you have those types of dreams?

Dreaming is often associated with fanciful things or pie in the sky. However, dreaming can be one of the most important things we do. Dreaming takes us out of our rut, the constraints of our bank account, flies past limitations and stagnation, and lets us see beyond our present reality. Dreaming may be the one place we let our imagination and our hearts have a voice that offers us an avenue to so much more!

It may be difficult to tell anyone our dreams. They might laugh or at very least raise an incredulous eyebrow because they may think dreams we are wasting our time on the impossible.

Funny thing about dreams, they found their way into people’s experiences in the Bible. Maybe you didn’t know this but God sends dreams to ordinary people to bring about extraordinary things. The first evidence of this is Joseph, the youngest son of Jacob. He dreamed that, as they were bringing in the sheaves at harvest, all the brothers’ sheaves bowed down to his sheave. Needless to say, this dream did not go over too well with his older brothers! Later, this dream would indeed come true but only after his brothers sold him to the Ishmaelites, who in turn sold him as a slave in Egypt. After a series of mishaps and God’s rescue, Joseph becomes the overseer of Pharaoh’s kingdom and his brothers must come bow down to him to seek food for their family during the famine in Canaan (Genesis 37-50).

Although we may not have received a dream like Joseph, we may have our own dream. What can God do with our dream?

In a book I’m reading called “Dreaming with God: A Bold Call to Step Out and Follow God’s Lead,” Sarah Beth Marr offers us a way to move from our dreams to dreams God has for us. For our God who dreams also has a dream for each of us! We just might not know what it is yet!

Peter tells the crowd on the Day of Pentecost, the day when the Holy Spirit filled the disciples to praise God in other languages: “In the last days it will be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams” (Acts 2:17-18). In other words, the Holy Spirit can enable even old men to dream God’s dreams!

By ourselves – even with much hard work and effort, we may not ever reach our dream. But when we trust God with our secret dream and heart’s desire, God will help us see what’s true and best for us in God’s eyes. Our God, who created the world, loves us far more than we realize. The best and brightest dream is the one that God will bring in our lives when we trust God with our heart and our dream. Psalm 37: 4-5 offers us the way: “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.” I pray you will tell God your dream, then listen for and trust God for the dream best suited to you to come true in God’s kingdom.
