This is your future.
Since I've not been paid or replied to, I'm declassifying it. 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.

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.

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.

An airline official replied :

"For once, @TheVijayMallya will heave a sigh of relief 😁"

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.

❗️Just what you’ve been waiting for❗️Sunday @BoggildLab #Tweetorial on Fever in the Returning Traveler!! 🤒✈️🏝🏖💉🦟🌞Buckle up, friends 😊🙏🙏 @MedTweetorials @AcademicChatter #AcademicChatter #MedTweetorials #Fever #Travel #VectorBorneDisease #VaccinesWork 1/23
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
3/23 Fever in returning travelers is common in our population due to high mobility & travel proclivities. We collectively log millions of miles of air and land transit annually to countries that have very different endemicity profiles for infectious diseases compared to 🇨🇦 or 🇺🇸

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

1/ Classic start to a Northern train journey: 24 min delay due to "awaiting a member of staff" & the train to MCR airport is rammed incl. a group of rowdy lads singing Vera Lynn "We'll meet again" & drinking cans of Bud Light at 8:30am 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️ #EUsupergirlTour ✈🇬🇧
2/ Then the "Direct" MCR airport service randomly decides it isn't going to the airport after all (don't they realise people have flights to catch?!)🤦🏼‍♀️✈
Funny: I have to plan 1hr contingency time for train Fckups when I travel to Northern airports.

This is a truly terrible take that I know is widely shared. A thread...

1) Blaming influencers for influx of travelers is absurd. Travel has always existed in the realm of wish fulfillment. The fact that more people are traveling is a sign that more people are upwardly mobile.
2) Your "I want fewer people in Zion" think pieces are the same as #MAGA noise -- the toxic thinking of "it was better back before YOU showed up."

It's racist, ageist, ableist, gendered, & xenophobic.

Don't see it? Research the largest growing segments in the travel industry.
3) This exact same piece was written about the Lonely Planet in 1999. By me.

It's not about the platform, it's about the fact that many travelers aren't intrepid. They glom onto the same places, which people of influence -- writers, models, etc -- tell them are cool.

#SundayReading

I read a great article on why the younger generation do not buy cars & apartments anymore & found it #TooGoodNotToShare

#WhyOwnWhenYouCanRent?

#SharedEconomy

Nowadays,the traditional measure of success-owning an apartment & or a car-is getting out of date
An increasing number of young people around the world don’t want to buy them.

#Research shows that the so-called #MillennialGeneration, who are now 30-35 years old, rarely buy houses and even more rarely — cars. In fact, they don’t buy super expensive things at all.
In the USA, people under the age of 35 are called ’the generation of renters.’

Why does this happen?

Some sociologists say the current generation of young people differs from their parents’ generation. They have other values.

I vetted a press release yesterday titled "Instagrammable Spots You Won’t Want to Miss in XYZ." This is problematic on so many levels. I wanted to throw my hands up in despair, cry, run away, throttle my inbox. Instead, let's break things down here. /1
There's been a lot of talk lately about whether Instragram is ruining the travel experience. In fact, 48% of Instagram’s 1 billion users say they rely on the social media platform to help find new destinations to travel to. /2
Instagram is an easy way to get eyes on a destination. We are bombarded with information that says Instagram - and Instagram influencers - should be part of your #marketing strategy. /3
