American Airlines Flight 331 left Reagan National Airport at 3:37 p.m. Tuesday, stopped at Miami International, then headed into Kingston’s Norman Manley International Airport about 10:22 p.m. According to the NTSB, the airplane, a Boeing 737-800, carried 154 passengers and six crew members.
The National Transportation Safety Board confirmed that it had taken possession of the flight data recorders from the American Airlines flight that overshot a runway in Kingston, Jamaica, Tuesday night, injuring dozens.
U.S. air safety investigators traveled to Jamaica on Wednesday to help officials there determine how the jetliner "overshot the end of the runway while landing in heavy rain, crossed a road and stopped on a beach," the NTSB said.

The Laurens have owned their main house for over 20 years.  They completely remodeled the villa when it was first bought.  Ricky says when she first saw the villa, the beautiful mahogany doors and shutters were painted gray, and the floors indoors and out were covered in carpet.   Here, Lauren decorates using lots of blue and white porcelains, hurricane lamps, vintage styled rattan furniture from the Lauren furniture line, and baskets everywhere.  The house, located at the top of a hill overlooking Montego Bay is called "High Rock."  Lauren describes his vacation house here:  “The house has an Englishness I’ve always liked,” he says, “an Old World elegance.
Ralph and Ricky Lauren both adore their homes at Round Hill and it’s exclusive atmosphere fits right in with Ralph’s own adopted image of "old wealth."  Through the years, Round Hill has maintained it’s reputation as being a refined place of great beauty and quiet elegance.   Operating during the winter months of the high season and, on a smaller scale during the off season, the villas are available to let when their owners are not in  residence.  Recently, Round Hill underwent  a major refurbishing headed by Ralph Lauren himself who redecorated all 36 of the Pineapple House guest rooms using his own brand of furniture and using Waterworks for the bathrooms.   Two new infinity pools were built and the Spa was also spruced up.  If you are looking for a quiet place to vacation, with great privacy and old world charm and manners, Round Hill may be just the place for you.
The 27 villas are decorated by the owners, so before you book a room be sure to check out each villa’s individual decor on the hotel’s web site!  These privately owned homes resemble each other as most were originally designed by the same architect.  The Round Hill "look" is British Colonial chic, with gorgeous mahogany shutters and high, vaulted wooden ceilings with fans.    This particular villa is exceptionally attractive with its vintage rattan furniture and crisp white slipcovers with red accents.  Through the French doors, onto the covered veranda, the view of Montego Bay is gorgeous.
Villa #17 is my favorite one.  I could actually move in here today and be quite  happy with the decor.  White slipcovers with bright accent pillows.  The mahogany louvered doors open up to one of the bedrooms.   I think this villa was decorated using all Ralph Lauren furniture, just as the ocean-front Pineapple House guest rooms were.
In this age of glitzy resorts, where bigger is better, and fancy ostentatiousness reigns, there’s something to savor about the low-key charm of a hotel whose hey days in the 50’s is long passed.  Round Hill Hotel and Villas opened its doors in 1953 on a  100 acre peninsula on Montego Bay, Jamaica.   The land was was once occupied by a sugar plantation and its 18th century  manor house is today the location of the hotel’s spa.  The hotel is comprised of just 36 ocean front guestrooms and 27 privately owned villas.   Back when the resort was first opened,  both American and European socialites were invited to invest in the resort and build their own villas there.   The original shareholders included:   Noel Coward, Adele Astaire, Bill Paley, Lord and Lady Ednam, Mr.

That night, members of my group shared challenges they faced working with children in the primary school (Coke’s View) next door.. Their reflections shared that the level of achievement of the first through fifth graders was not what they expected it to be, and that the learning environment in this school was very difficult in terms of getting students to focus.
While in Jamaica on an Amizade Global Service-Learning program with John Carroll University, we had the privilege of visiting schools and witnessing firsthand the triumphs and trials of the education system.
One interesting thing to think about, though, is that the education system in America might face the same challenges that Jamaica does- overflowing pupil to teacher ratios, lack of adequate learning space, abundant distractions, and the high risk of becoming lost in the system.
There still exists a lingering British influence (Jamaica gained their independence in 1962) in the education system, as some of their standardized tests come from Europe, but Jamaica is working to further declare their own national identity and developing their own standard of assessment.
There is no way to describe the range of emotions and observations I experienced in my short yet eye-opening ten hours I spent with the students but it is safe to say that my experience in these schools rekindled my passion for education and social justice that I will take with me for the rest of my life.
