As I embark on a month-long journey, some 6000 km back and forth, to get my wife and and daughter, I hope my journey is as stodgy as my life has been of late.

1/ PSA for anyone who needs to cancel their #travel/#vacation plans, from my personal experience this morning:

If your airline shifts your flight by more than 6 hours, they're REQUIRED by DOT regulations to issue a refund if you request it.

DO NOT accept a travel voucher...
2/ Had a family trip to Hawaii planned for next month that we booked last year.

Just received FULL refunds for both the flight (United attempted to shift my departure forward by a full day), and the hotel (which updated its cancellation policy to waive fees b/c of COVID-19).
3/ That said, it wasn't easy...took almost 2 full hours on the phone this morning with Expedia before they agreed to issue full refunds -- and only then because I noticed my itinerary was significantly altered and called them to discuss.

THIS IS YOUR FUTURE
Since I've not been paid or replied to, I am declassifying. One of the biggest hurdles in building high speed rail is paying for the project. The solution is built in from the beginning. Its not just that you build it, its how you build it.

Right after hurricane Harvey Texas was flooded and I was talking about how the maglev would still be running because it was elevated. All you need to do is make it to the terminal. Thats when Trump declared National emergency and classified my work under nuclear preparedness.
Imagine a bridge, that instead of crossing the highway, runs lengthwise. It's elevated so it doesn't get in the way of animals or humans. It never stops, it never slows. Because it is elevated, accidents are almost unheard of. Making emergency evacuation safe and quick.

Many of the long standing societal rules were re-written at times of crisis. We are undergoing one of the biggest crisis of our generation. Wonder what rules will be re-written in the post COVID world. Trying to predict few changes in the new world

Thread 1/n
AI and Digital transformation will lead the way in the post Covid world as people will finally wake up to the potential of technology in optimizing their respective businesses.

Education:
The de facto delivery of education will change to online mediums now that the education institutes will start seeing the potential of online education delivery. Low impact in K12, high impact in higher education.

make Indian newspaper follow global trend of decline?

Cable TV will get a leg up; more than OTT

will internet bandwidth choked (everyone is WFH), OTT streaming is slow and in mobile defaulted to SD
cable is the best place to get HD.. recharged your tataSky/Dish TV? you are not the only one...

Big :

- India bans travel of anyone from European Union, UK, Turkey (never made it to EU) to India.

- Mandatory two week quarantine for people coming from UAE Oman Qatar and Kuwait or even transiting from these places.

#coronavirus #india #travel #tourism #aviation.
Since many asked, checked with government authorities:

- Ban applies to Indian citizens of all these EU countries etc and quarantine too applies.

- Whether quarantine at home or hospital will be as per APHO there.

These past couple of weeks I've been swamped with questions from patients and non-ID colleagues about #travel and #COVID19. Here's my take on some of these questions (from an Australian perspective), with links to credible sources.
1. Should I cancel my trip? I can't decide for you, but here are the things I'd consider:
1a. What does the Australian Government recommend? Check the overall advice level for your destination at smartraveller.gov.au/consular-servi… If the recommendation is "do not travel" or "reconsider your need to travel" you should probably cancel or postpone your trip.

2/23 Fever = hypothalamic thermostat reset to a ⬆️ temp in response to infection. It’s an adaptive biological response to pathogen invasion that assists w/ immunological control of infections. Most texts refer to fever as temp >38 C. See JAMA paper also: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1302471

An order was released on 25th January 2020 by the administration of J&K allowing internet access on 2G for 301 whitelisted websites. We asked a user to access some whitelisted websites on 2G.
This is what was found.
#LetTheNetWork #KeepItOn #JammuAndKashmir
The user first tried to access the website of Jammu and Kashmir bank. All of these websites were accessed on a 2G connection.

Second website was Paspostindia.gov.in
Most websites took too long to respond and the user received a Time Out error. This was the UIDAI(AADHAR) website which didn't open. #Governmentservice
