The Wizard

I’m sure I watched this back in the day, but I had zero memory of the story — other than it culminates in a tournament, and Super Mario Bros. 3 makes an appearance. Didn’t even remember that Christian Slater is in this! I really don’t get why they wanted to mix a pretty serious drama with the video game backdrop — it’s the dramatic (and downer) content that slows the movie down, and it acts as a weird contrast with the video game stuff. If it was just the video game stuff (kids want to get...

Amazon Likely To Offer Consumers a Standalone Alternative to UPS and FedEx

Two of the most innovative companies in the world are Google and Amazon. They’re impressive in similar ways. They’ve built capabilities, scaled them, and used their new internal capacity to compete aggressively in adjacent industries. No one can touch what Google has done in artificial intelligence at scale. They built and effectively managed large scale data storage, and branched out to manage web services for other companies (Google Cloud). They used the data storage and search capability to o...

New California Independent Contractor Rule Means More Transportation Discrimination

I used to get in taxis all the time in New York. But before the driver would let me in he'd (and it was always a he) roll down the window and ask where I was going. He didn't want a ride in the opposite direction of where he wanted to go, and he certainly didn't want to drive into an 'undesirable' (minority) neighborhood. That's illegal, but the practice was commonplace. Uber and other rideshare companies changed all that. You enter where you're going in an app, the driver accepts the ride, b...

Santa Claus Spotted on a Motorcycle in Bristol, Tennessee

Santa Claus — who seems to be very patriotic to the United States — was spotted riding a motorcycle eastbound on State Street in Bristol, Tennessee on Christmas Eve 2019 and apparently giving his reindeer some much-needed time off, foregoing Rudolph the Black Lunged Reindeer for a large shiny bright headlight.

How (And When) To Change Your Name On An Airline Ticket

As a general rule airlines don't let you change the name on a ticket. If you could swap names, you could resell tickets, and that would undermine airline pricing strategies that try to charge more for the kind of last minute travel usually purchased by business travelers. That's also why airlines started insisting on ID'ing travelers, to make sure their tickets weren't being resold. However name corrections are often possible. Here's what to do.

The True Spirit and Meaning of Travel: What We Can Learn From Christmas 2019

The year is 2019; and here we go again: after almost two months of what seems to be non-stop advertisements for endless sales and a continuous onslaught of music in celebration of one of the holiest days for Christians around the world, there are people who believe that the true spirit and meaning of Christmas is lost in a vast sea of commercialism and profit — and I could not help but wonder if a similar sentiment can be analogous to the true spirit and meaning of travel. Although the miles and...
