#OceanGate missing submarine is a sad situation and I pray it works out and everyone is found safe. Here is the thing. The submarine is a joke. The ballast system requires shifting of people to jettison used pipes. Wtf? It is a tragedy waiting to happen. It isn’t a game.
I spent 11.5 years in the Navy and was sub qualified. Ocean Gate submarine is nothing more than a play toy for people with too much money and not enough commonsense ! Underwater, especially at the depths most military submarines operate isn’t a place to play…
Consider that Ocean Gate goes deeper than most military subs by quite a lot and it becomes even less of a place to play or be tourist. On Submarines the crew is qualified to operate the systems and trains constantly on what to do in case of emergencies. What about #OceanGate?

Did you know that @WVUFLU supports the state of West Virginia subsidizing the #dogracing industry with YOUR TAX DOLLARS?

$17 million dollars of our state budget is going to the cruel practice of #Greyhound Racing.

@WVUFLU you have the opportunity to grow and change. #wvpol
“Without the purse subsidies from the racetrack’s gaming operations, purses would decline to such a level as to make it uneconomic for kennel owners to continue to race greyhounds in West Virginia.” And most of the winnings don't even stay in state. #wvpol #GreyhoundDerby2023 Image
Female #greyhounds are routinely given methyltestosterone, an anabolic steroid, to prevent a loss of race days. This performance enhancing drug is prohibited in other dog racing jurisdictions, but continues in #WestVirginia. But @WVUFLU says this isn't abusive.

I have just had an illuminating conversation with tourism expert and researcher, Mike Riungu about the impact of tourism decline on the environment, youth, women and livelihoods. It's armageddon. #Thread
This are @googleearth images of the wider Malindi in 1995, 2003, 2017 and 2022. In 1995 when tourism was thriving, it was lush and green. As tourism declined and people went from town to rural, they cut trees & sold charcoal to survive. #environment Wider Malindi 1995Wider Malindi 2003Wider Malindi 2017Wider Malindi 2022
Thousands who lost #tourism jobs in the past 10 years slid into #poverty, moved to their farms & sold charcoal. Now that there's barely any charcoal to sell, they are selling the land at throwaway prices. You keep seeing the ads for farm land in Malindi.

🚂 @PKP_SA celebrates its 96th birthday 🎂🎉 #OTD 26.09 the 🇵🇱 state railways were established.

Here's a little #history🧵on its origins (for all #train buffs & railfans)

#PolishHistory #Poland #History #railway #travel #tourism
Although much of the infrastructure within the borders of newly-independent 🇵🇱 had been destroyed during #WWI, 🇵🇱 was very quick to reestablish its railways. New lines sprang up allowing for economic development and integration.
The railways and their unification was not an easy task as some had to be rebuilt to standardise tracks across the lands of the former partitions. Finance was also a major issue: foreign capital was sought – to little avail.

The €50,000 KfW Bernhard Grzimek Prize for #conservation will be presented today in Frankfurt.

But should Bernhard #Grzimek really be celebrated as a role model? 🤔

Following his civil service career in Nazi Germany as a member of the SA (Nazi Stormtroopers), Grzimek became a director of a zoo & an animal rights activist.

Grzimek discovered his love for conservation in the #Serengeti, where he:
🔴 campaigned for yrs alongside @FZS_Frankfurt AGAINST the land rights of the Indigenous #Maasai
🔴 “professionalized” the militarized monitoring of Protected Areas
🔴 boosted mass #tourism in the area

کالا دھری مندر (بہاولپور، پاکستانی پنجاب)

جسے"شری نانی دیوجی مہاراج" بھی کہاجاتاھے،
اندرون بہاولپور کی پھٹے والی گلی میں واقع ھے۔
مندر پر نظر پڑتے ہی نگاہیں ماضی کے جھروکوں سے اس عہد رفتہ میں کود جاتی ہیں جب یہ مندر تعمیر کیا گیا ھو گا تو کیسا شاندار ھو گا۔
کیونکہ مندر خوبصورت نوادرات جڑی دیواروں، شاندار لکڑی کے کام، کھدے ھوئے نقوش، ٹائل آرٹ سےآراستہ ھے۔
یہ مندر
بہاولپور کے تاریخ قد اور اہمیت کو چار چاند لگاتا ھے۔ آج مقامی ہندو بتاتے ہیں کہ وہ مندر کی خراب حالت کیوجہ سےیہاں پوجا (Ritual Ceremonies) نہیں کر پاتے۔
یہ مندر مراٹھا ہندو سلطنت نےبنایا تھا اور اسےمراٹھا برادری کےلوگ چلاتےتھے اور اسکی مالی امداد کرتےتھے۔

1/ #travel #TravelBlogger - Williamsburg, #Virginia is a national historical treasure founded 1632 whose Colonial #architecture has been copied across the #USA. If you go, also visit nearby Yorktown and so much more!
2/ #history #travel #tourism - Williamsburg, #Virginia was Virginia’s capital 1699 to 1780. It’s really an outdoor museum. Actors recreate life from three hundred years ago. IIRC, there are shops, nice tree-lined sidewalks, and beautiful vistas.
3/ #Colonial Williamsburg is really a beautiful outdoor museum. I love #architecture in general and enjoy the Williamsburg style. Yet somehow, I never learned its origins. Usually a combination of nature, available materials, etc., helps create styles.

Puhleez Hickory County #Missouri, it’s ridiculous to expect local govt to predict how many lives will be saved or response times improved by a sales tax dedicated to manning your 911 dispatch center. Either you want a properly staffed 911 call center or you don’t. @ky3 report
A 20% poverty, decreasing <10k low population Hickory County that covers 412 square miles, with Pomme tourism should not accept crazy excuses for voting yes or no.

Vote as you wish but don’t lie to yourselves about the reasons, including tourism.…
#Missouri promotes Pomme de Terre as a tourist destination. Minimum levels of service should be required & that should include cell service & emergency services & broadband services.

Sales taxes are paid by visitors & outsiders. That should have been included in the @ky3 report
