    If you think going through security lines at airports is already a hassle, be prepared: It could get worse.

    The Transportation Security Administration is testing tighter screening of carry-on bags at 10 U.S. airports, including those in Boston, Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale and Lubbock, Texas. The agency could expand the new procedures to other airports, CNBC reported.

    What's changed?

    "Travelers will be asked to place electronics larger than a cell phone in a bin separately for X-ray screening. TSA officers may also advise travelers to place other carry-on items separately in a bin," said Darby LaJoye, TSA assistant administrator for security operations.

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.
