    On Sunday, the Buccaneers and Dolphins played one of those football games that gets only an obligatory mention at the end of highlight shows. In that spirit, this week's Turning Point will focus mostly on the final three minutes of Bucs quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick completed about 60 percent of his passes Sunday and threw for 275 yards in a 30-20 win over the Dolphins. He threw touchdown passes and no interceptions. [LOREN ELLIOTT | Times]

  5. Most air travelers say taking off your shoes is okay. An etiquette expert disagrees

    Travel

    Unless you are ensconced in first class, sleeping on a plane is as intimate as dozing off in a waiting room on jury duty — everyone on the aircraft knows the decibel level of your snoring and the sad state of your socks.

    Passengers sit  aboard a Swiss International Air Lines' new Bombardier CS 100 passenger jetliner during a flight over the Swiss Alps. To gauge how passengers perceive and handle nightmare flight scenarios, British Airways surveyed 1,500 travelers from the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Italy.
