Court blocks Heathrow runway project Travel Weekly A U.K. appeals court has blocked a $14 billion plan to build a third runway at capacity-constrained London Heathrow, saying the project was not developed in accordance with Great Britain’s commitment to the Paris Agreement on climate change.  Climate activists have hailed the decision, but Heathrow says it will appeal.

Getting To Know The City On A Tampa Food Tour

I still remember going on my first food tour four years ago in London. At the time there really weren’t that many culinary tours offered around the world; a fact that seems shocking given how many there are today in 2020. Almost every city I visit has a version and it’s my favorite way to explore any new destination. In addition to delicious food, I always learn more about the culture while on these experiences, and that was especially true when I visited Tampa, Florida. Tampa may not be th...

Here and There

Another mix of photos in Paris. Seen on the Pont des Arts with Ile de la Cite in the background. People are still putting locks everywhere they can. This always reminds me of my dear friend Lisa who fought against the “love locks” and helped end them on this bridge except people still find ways. May I just say: A wing of the Louvre Museum shining in the sun. A beautiful shop selling gorgeous artificial plants along with other decorative items. I liked t...

LA Wants To Give Priority Security To People Who Ride Public Transit. That’s Silly.

Los Angeles is is considering letting people who take public transit to the airport have priority security. This isn’t PreCheck or CLEAR, just priority line access for the regular security queue, and follows a program at Boston Logan for people who take a shuttle bus or ferry to the airport. Priority security isn’t actually free, in other words it isn’t costless. “When everybody’s priority, nobody is.” Grant everyone priority and they’re behind everyone else who is also priority that got there f...

Food delivered traditionally by bicycle in Tokyo

In a world of delivery motorbikes and Uber Eats bags, the sight of food being transported the traditional way is an increasingly rare sight. One only really seen in certain parts of the city. But just like the old adage about buses, after waiting ages to see one, two sometimes come along at once.

Souqs in Middle East, North Africa

If it were possible to distill the essence of the Middle East and North Africa into a single experience, it would be a jaunt through the spice-ladened air of a busy souq. Souqs, collections of adjacent vendors often sprawled out over a plaza or multiple semi-enclosed streets, have served as the economic hubs of Middle Eastern metropolises since their first appearance, which some researchers contend was as early as 2,000 BC. Despite the vast distances and imposing geographies separating them...

The best things to see in Detroit

The best possible way to learn, understand, and appreciate a new city is to dig into its history. And few cities in the United States have the historical chops of Detroit, which has been a major part of more US cultural movements than nearly any other city. Forget the things you thought you knew about Michigan’s largest city and go make new discoveries, partake in exciting historical moments, and explore beyond the guide books. This itinerary starts with destruction and finishes with an eye t...

Muddy Waters Scores Big Win for Short-Sellers Over NMC Health - Bloomberg

Muddy Waters Scores Big Win for Short-Sellers Over NMC Health - Bloomberg:In 2018 NMC Health Plc commissioned an external review of its board’s effectiveness. The idea of this box-ticking exercise was to assure investors that the directors of the United Arab Emirates hospital operator were working “in the interests of all key stakeholders.”The unsurprising conclusion was that the board was “operating effectively and healthily,” NMC’s last annual report revealed. That finding clearly wasn’t worth...

With every new headline relaying the detrimental effects of climate change, it can be easy to overlook the positive climate news that filters through our feed each week. There is good being done on the environment’s behalf, with nature increasingly being afforded legal rights of its own. A number of ecosystems around the world have been declared living entities by local or federal courts, many of them also granted personhood, and laws are being codified to manage, conserve, and protect the na...

An airline pilot designed the world’s most efficient travel luggage

Necessity is perhaps the best sort of design brief. If you want to solve a problem, ask for insights for someone plagued by the problem the most. In 1987, Robert Plath, a Northwest Airlines pilot revolutionized how we travel by simply adding a pair of wheels to his luggage. Decades later, strolleys are practically a norm, and anyone who physically lifts heavy bags is looked at as a luddite. If you want to innovate and create the best sort of luggage for travel, the best way is to talk to someo...
