The European Union told member states that they can use 5G equipment from high-risk vendors, such as Huawei, although there will have to be strict regulations in place to counter any potential national security threat.

Panchapalli Dam: Soaked in Serenity

It was a pleasant drive on the first day of 2020 to Panchapalli Dam, tucked away in the forest stretches, south of Bengaluru. A detour from Anekal led to the town of Denkanikota, which falls under Krishnagiri district. The traffic thinned as we drove past the road side shops, and the road turned narrower as well. Dark clouds hovered throughout the drive with intermittent sprays, a dash of petrichor and fresh air.  Farm lands popped up on either side, and it was a delight to see them inte...

Feuilletées pommes, chèvres et noix comme des roses

Feuilletés pommes, chèvres et noix comme des roses pour l’apéro J’ai remarqué ces petites roses chez Chef Nini et ça tombait parfaitement puisque nous étions invités chez des amis. Suivant l’adage, il faut toujours avoir une pâte feuilletée, une pomme et du chèvre dans son frigo, et cela permet de ne pas arriver les mains vides mais avec une petite gourmandise pour l’apéro. Et si comme nous, vous avez de la chance vos amis ouvriront le champagne qui ...

First light: Maui Haleakala telescope captures closeup of the sun, plus Oahu voters to decide prosecutor term limits, TMT protest nonprofit must release records, more news from all the Hawaiian Islands

 The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope has produced the highest resolution observations of the Sun’s surface ever taken. In this movie, taken at a wavelength of 705nm over a period of 10 minutes, we can see features as small as 30km (18 miles) in size for the first time ever. The movie shows the turbulent, “boiling” gas that covers the entire sun. The cell-like structures – each about the size of Texas – are the signature of violent motions that transport heat from the inside of the sun to its su...

Self-Involved and Needlessly Complex Thoughts About Turning 44

Some birthdays are important; they’re milestones that indicate you have survived an arbitrary number of years on the planet without being mauled to death by a bear, as an example. These important birthdays almost always end in a zero, because we as humans have an odd attraction to round numbers. Forty-four is not one of these birthdays. No, it’s as inconsequential an event as one could possible imagine – somewhere between a dental cleaning and Flag Day in order of annual importance. That’s ...

American Reaches Tentative Agreement With Its Mechanics

Since no joint contract had been achieved, each work group kept their own separate work and the airline’s 2013 merger still isn’t complete. 2019 was a long, hot summer with the airline’s operations melting down amidst a work slowdown by mechanics. So what did American agree to? The details are still being worked through, and comparisons to existing deals will need to be made, but roughly it appears...

Best things to do in rural Romania

2020 travel trends show a return to the simplicity of our world, with an emphasis on sustainability, locally grown and made items, and origins. Well beyond Transylvania, Romania has outposts where traditionalism and traditions are flourishing. The Romanian spirit and the impact of other nations onto the country bordering the Carpathians, the Danube, and the Black Sea led to something that has been lost in many parts of our world: a genuine encounter. Each of these three regions in the country...

Best beaches in Egypt besides Sharm

The preferred destination of partygoers and spa enthusiasts, Sharm el-Sheikh near the tip of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula is a beachy paradise filled with high-end resorts, bars, and restaurants. It certainly has its charms. However, if your goal is to appreciate the natural beauty of Egypt’s coasts in places that range from slightly to far off the beaten sand path, there are some very worthy alternatives, all of which are accessible from major cities by car. Swim season never ends in Egypt, than...

Timeless Tokyo in monochrome shades

Towards the end of last year, I took a photograph from the same spot as the one in this post. It can be seen here should you wish to make a comparison. A photo that I probably prefer due to the subject’s expression. The visible smartphone, however, makes it very contemporary, whereas the shot below has a far more timeless feel. An element that in modern, rapidly changing Tokyo, is increasingly hard to achieve.

Panic over coronavirus is harmful

On Tuesday, January 22 , the news reported the first case of coronavirus on US shores. By January 26, after two more cases were reported, the Los Angeles County Health Department had to release a statement reading, in part, “People should not be excluded from activities based on their race, country of origin, or recent travel if they do not have symptoms of respiratory illness.” There are now a total of five reported cases in the United States. Still, as tends to happen in cases of the sudden...

This and That

I’m in a photo taking mode once I get away from our apartment and save them up for my blog, as you can see. I like the fork above the door of this elegant restaurant. The very sweet interior of a clothing shop with a light inside a white dress. A very nice exterior. I think this book store must have been around for many years. The entrance to a tea cafe.
