propitiate, disabuse, circumspect, obdurate, repudiate

Today is the day of reckoning. Hopefully, at least one of these GRE words in this blog will appear on the GRE. I reviewed the Kaplan flashcards again today. 5 out of 200 most common GRE words still gave me problems, i.e. I couldn't recall the meaning within 10 seconds. These were:

  • propitiate - conciliate, appease, mollify, placate, assuage, paliate
  • disabuse - set right, free from error, exculpate, exonerate (it is not "not to abuse")
  • circumspect - cautious, aware of potential consequences (it is not "to inspect in a circular or circuitous manner")
  • obdurate - intransigent, recalcitrant, unyielding, stubborn
  • repudiate - to reject the validity of, (think "refute")

In keeping with Kaplan's suggestion of relaxing or watching a movie the day before the exam, I went and saw the Tin Hat Trio at Johnny D's club in Davis Square. They are much better live than their records. The violinist, Carla Kihlstedt was awesome. I am a fan of her solo work and her two other bands: Sleepytime Gorilla Musuem and Charming Hostess. I got to talk to her briefly during their set break where she informed me that the next SGM album is due out in October (w00t!). The next Charming Hostess albums are due "anytime soon". They've actually finished recording them a long time ago, however, she doesn't know why it's taking so long to release.

The main force of the Tin Hat Trio is the guitarist, who also acts as the main composer. He plays his guitar palm-muted about 99% of the time - even during his solos - the result is a unique, quirky, playful and percussive sound. I'll definitely see the group again when they come back sometime in October.

Davis Square is a pretty happening place. It was still very alive at 11:30pm. I treated myself to JP Licks ice cream after the concert. Anyone riding the Redline between Central Square and Harvard should check out the "moving ads" outside the window. Very nifty.

Do you think the best way to get the cheapest plane tickets is by calling the airline? Or, do you scan through hundreds of websites provided by search engines to find low airfare tickets? Maybe you hope to find cheap airfare in the local newspaper's travel section.
Finding cheap airline tickets can be one of the most frustrating experiences that most of us learn very quickly. Of course, most people eventually give up after spending hours scanning websites that offer virtually the same flight schedules and pricing. People purchase what they believe is the cheapest plane ticket, only to find their neighbor paid just a third of what they did!

Unless you understand the concept of of how airlines set prices, all the searching in the world won't provide the cheapest airline ticket prices. The following information will give you a guide to follow, as you wander through the maze searching for cheap airfare.

Understand how prices are set by airlines! Air ticket pricing is complex and unpredictable, and driven by competition, demand, and inventory. Airlines call this "yield management."

Competition is the beast behind the cheapest plane tickets. All major airlines utilize central reservation systems (owned by various airlines) to fill available seats. The systems are known as Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Prices are based on demand, and if some flights are selling well, the price will increase. If the flight is unpopular and has very little demand, the fare is lowered in hope of attracting consumers. In short, fares and inventory change every minute of every day!

Finding the cheapest plane tickets is difficult because travel agents and Internet websites use the central reservation systems that are updated periodically throughout the day. The reason why different searches come up with different results is because the systems are not updated at the same times. And, each system may use different algorithms when searching for low airfare tickets, which can provide a variety of ticket prices .
