7 ways to weatherproof your winter holiday travel

A White Christmas can quickly turn blue for unprepared travelers. Last year, storms created major headaches for people traveling through the West, Midwest and Northeast around the Christmas holiday, causing more than 620 flight cancellations across the U.S. That was nothing compared with 2010.

Education was scarce for Muslim Rohingya youth before 2012, but the crisis that has forced hundreds of thousands from their homes has shut that door, says Cresa Pugh, a doctoral student in sociology and social policy at Harvard University, who spent her 2017 summer in the Rakhine State.

2017 Chevrolet Volt

The Volt was the first of its kind when it hit the market in 2010, and it has been at the top of the pack ever since. With a class-demolishing 53 miles of electric-only range, it’s a plug-in hybrid that can be driven like an EV much of the time. Boy racers may scoff, but for the planet-aware driver who has an occasional long trip on the docket, the Volt is a perfect fit. That doesn’t mean that it’s without compromises—the interior is plastic-tastic, and we suspect the rear seat…
