Multiple U.S. airlines, including Southwest, American and Delta, worked to get back on schedule from hundreds of delayed flights Monday after a systemwide outage temporarily suspended takeoffs across the country. Southwest Airlines Co. was particularly hard hit, as the Dallas-based carrier voluntarily grounded all its planes for 40 minutes during the technology glitch at AeroData Inc., a provider of aircraft weight and balance information. Delays affected nearly 1,000 of Southwest's flights, according to data tracker FlightAware.com, representing about a quarter of the airline's 4,000 daily flights."Because of our size and scope, and combined with our ground stop, it had a pretty big impact to our operation," said Dan Landson, a Southwest spokesman.The intermittent problem affected the regional partners of Delta Air Lines Inc. and United Continental Holdings Inc.

Michael H. Hodges Detroit News Fine Arts Writer Published 6:31 PM EST Nov 7, 2018 The Motor City's plucky classical drama company, Shakespeare in Detroit, is on the verge of some very big things. Opening Nov. 8 is their second production of the year, the bard's much-loved comedy of errors and mistaken identity, "Twelfth Night" -- this time set in the 1920s Jazz Age. The play runs through Sunday at the Detroit Opera House. Then the company will take a powder for one year, in preparation for its move into permanent quarters on the Detroit riverfront in 2020. The Detroit News is the company's media sponsor. But in the meantime, there's "Twelfth Night" to look forward to. It promises to be a harmonious evening. "The production has a lot of music in it," said Sam White, founding artistic and executive director, "which is cool and easy to do in 'Twelfth Night' because there’s a lot of beautiful prose." Shakespeare's amusing fool, Feste … [Read more...] about Shakespeare in Detroit opens \

Shawn D. Lewis The Detroit News Published 4:54 PM EDT Oct 10, 2018 Detroit — A homeless woman grips the handles behind her walker and painstakingly limps forward. A young boy offers her two sandwiches and a soft drink. “Don’t forget to show love,” he says shyly, smiling at her and other homeless people waiting in line for food. The child, dressed as a superhero, is just four years old. Austin Perine visited the Mariners Inn shelter in Detroit on Wednesday as part of a multi-city tour away from his home in Birmingham Alabama, to foster his mission: feed as many homeless people as possible around the country, one sandwich at a time. It’s his duty, as a superhero, he says, when asked why he wants to feed the homeless. “It’s just the right thing to do,” he said. “They don’t have any food, and it makes me feel happy to do that for them.” Austin's mantra is repeated each time he hands out … [Read more...] about Superhero, 4, swoops into Detroit to feed the homeless
