Last month I received bad news. I was informed that the U.S.Treasury Department would not allow me to attend the 7th Annual Conference of North American and Cuban Philosophers and Social Scientists, to be held in Havana, June 12-26. My application, complete with my rationale and curriculum vitae, was accepted by the conference. That same application was not accepted by the Treasury Department. When I told numerous friends that the "United States forbids my going to Cuba," they were astounded!

The travel industry, on a rebound from the economic downturn of a few years ago, should continue to thrive under a second term of President Obama. That was the message sent Wednesday by the U.S. Travel Assn., the nation's largest trade group for the travel industry. Although the Washington group does not make political endorsements, it has voiced support for Obama's policies in the last few years and said it expects the administration to continue to support the industry. "We can expect President Obama and his administration to vigorously defend the travel-policy accomplishments he achieved in his first term," Roger Dow, president of the trade group, said in a statement.

I recently traveled to Japan and took a cellphone that I rented from . I was given this tip by the tour operator. You are sent a cellphone in a mailer for the country you are visiting; you return it when you get home. It determines what you owe. You don't need to worry about connections, SIM cards, etc. The phone comes with clear directions.
