By the time the chaos actually occurs, we already know what’s going to happen. With the laser burning her eye, face, and hands, Olivia tears herself free. She finally gets up from the bed just as her friends, followed by the now-worried doctor, burst into the room, only to slip on a piece of dislodged equipment and fall through a window, plummeting down several stories and crashing on a car. The exact process by which Olivia died may have been a surprise, but the end was never in question. No one escapes Death.
This mixture of shock and expectation makes Final Destination 5 the best in the franchise. Where the first film introduced the clever premise of a serial killer movie without a serial killer, and where the second film improved on the model with kill sequences that still make people think twice about following a logging truck or trying to get out of an elevator, Final Destination 3 slipped into a level of mean-spiritedness that undercut the inherently playful concept. By the time the supposed last entry, The Final Destinationreleased in 2009, the series felt rote and empty, a mechanical march toward death devoid of all energy and
- A baggage handler at London Heathrow says this summer’s travel chaos is the worst they’ve ever seen.

A baggage handler at London’s Heathrow airport has said the chances of passengers’ bags making it to their destinations are “very slim.”
The handler told the BBC that the situation at Heathrow, one of Europe’s busiest airports, was “a shambles” and “manic.” They added that the disruptions made them afraid to travel.
The BBC said the baggage handler was employed by an airline and had been based at Heathrow for more than a decade. Speaking anonymously, the handler said this summer’s travel chaos was the worst they’d seen in their career.
“I’m petrified to go on holiday,” they said. “I would not want to be transferring now — the chances of your bag making it are very slim.”
The baggage handler said the issues came from a mix of staffing issues, low investment, and old technology. They added that some baggage sorting systems in Heathrow were about 40
Palisade, Colorado (CNN) — Colorado’s iconic destinations have seemed to be around forever, and we know their names by heart: Vail, Aspen and Breckenridge, to name a few, along with Denver, a city that has exploded in the past decade.
For something new, a traveler must go farther west in the state, where a budding yet still relatively unknown region called the Grand Valley has become Colorado’s next must-visit destination.
Located on the Western Slope of the Rocky Mountains, four hours west of Denver (which is on the eastern side, or Front Range, of the Rockies), the valley contains three distinct cities: Palisade, Grand Junction and Fruita.
These three destinations individually and collectively offer much to experience, including a laid-back fruit and wine region, river activities and access to a unique combination of mountain and desert terrain for hiking, biking and scenic drives.
Come along as we break down and explore this up-and-coming area of Colorado.
Palisade: Fruit, wine and agritourism
A horse-drawn carriage goes clippity-clop down Palisade’s rose-lined streets, past farm stands and wine tasting rooms bursting with color. The landscape is dominated by peach orchards, vineyards and, depending on which way you look, a memorable combination of mountain
