How to Avoid Being Late For a Flight

Flying to a meeting? Going on vacation? With today's flight regulations, it is important to take the right steps that will help you get to the airport early and avoid unnecessary flights that could make you miss your flight. 1. To check in luggage or not Prior to going to the airport, go on your airline website or call their customer number to find out how much luggage you are allowed. Also, check how much luggage is allowed with you, as a carry on, so you can sort what goes where. If you are leaving for a short duration, try to travel light. Checking in luggage can be a lengthy process and if you can bring carry-ons only, you will avoid lots of line ups. 2. Check-in online Online check-in is a great way to save time. You can check in as early as 24 hours prior to your departure time. Second, it allows you to pick your seat as early as 24 hours before your flight.

How to Make 3D Glasses

An increasingly popular movie feature from back in the day and in today's modern world is the presentation of movies as presented in 3D. 3D movies shown in the theaters usually come with their own set of 3D glasses, either from Dolby Laboratories or Real D Glasses. The Real D Glasses may be kept while the Dolby ones must be returned at the end of a movie, where they are specifically cleaned and reused. However, for 3D movies that may come to the home on a movie channel, these glasses are not provided. In these instances, 3D glasses must be made.
