Back in 2012 the Jeep® brand design team crafted the Mighty FC Concept vehicle, spawned from its 1950’s linage and morphed into modern day off road swagger making grown men weak in the knees upon first glance.

Ambassadors Group to close - The Spokesman Review

Ambassadors Group, the Spokane-based education travel company that arranges popular People-to-People tours, is closing and all of its employees will be laid off. No student trips will be canceled this year since the peak travel season is waning, the company said in a news release. CEO Philip Livingston said in an email that the company would have no comment beyond the news release.

Ambassadors Group spun off from Ambassadors International in 2002 and handled student travel. the other company handled corporate group travel. But the company struggled when student travel plunged as a result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and global recession. It reported a 2014 loss of $17. 5 million, compared with a loss of $7. 1 million the previous year. “I suspect they were trying to sell (the company) and it couldn’t be done,” said Craig Hart, president and chief investment officer at Hart Capital Management in Spokane, a longtime local stock observer. Ambassadors’ news release said layoffs will begin on July 27. The company will be closed by the end of 2015. At the end of 2014 the company employed 155 people, according to its earnings report.

This is the story of how a 20-year-old B-17 co-pilot with a knack for narrow escapes, some military-base football superstars, a legendary baseball executive, one of the Navy's leading medical experts, several blustery businessmen and an adviser to... This is the story of the Yankees and Dodgers of the All-America Football Conference, two teams that helped win a war but lost the peace. It's also the story of how returning World War II heroes reshaped professional football in their own image—and how the NFL stopped thinking of itself as baseball's baby brother and learned to stand on its own. On June 4, 1944 , two days before D-Day, several of the most powerful men in America met to coordinate an attack. They would later be called "the millionaires' coffee klatch" or just "men of millionaire incomes. Not all members of the klatch were men: Eleanor Gehrig, widow of Lou Gehrig, was also at that first meeting. Source: bleacherreport.com
