Weekly Roundup, Friday 17 March, 2017

Good morning My comments last week about California’s deliberate withholding of its Department of Public Health findings on cell phone dangers engendered a few comments and, quite understandably, a few concerns as well.  As a result, I have not one but two articles to offer this week. The first is nice and short and simply […]

Good morning My extended ‘future of transportation’ series took another slight detour this week.  Uber has been going through some gyrations of late, managing to offend just about everyone on the planet in the process. Although it is only seven or so months since I last wrote about Uber, it seemed appropriate to update the […]

Good morning My ‘new era of transportation’ series took another detour this week.  What was supposed to be a couple of sentences on the shifting balance of ‘should you/shouldn’t you own a car’ ended up with almost 5,000 words of commentary and a complete full article, then a couple of reader responses caused me to […]

Good morning Does President Trump read The Travel Insider? He met with airline CEO’s on Thursday – although American’s CEO, Doug Parker, was notably absent due to a ‘scheduling conflict’.  One has to wonder – what sort of scheduling conflict would take priority over meeting with the President?  Maybe he was busy meeting with Nordstroms? […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 3 February, 2017

Good morning For the second week in a row, our new President is impacting on my choice of feature articles.  But his impact last week was generally rated positively, and I hope you’ll like this week’s article too which, in truth, actually is very little about the President, himself. It had been my intention to […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 27 January, 2017

Good morning We’re one week into our new President’s term; and one part of his ‘making America great again’ platform is investing into the nation’s transportation infrastructure. Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican, surely you support that concept, with both parties racing to get an infrastructure spending bill into the House first, so they can […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 6 January, 2017

Good morning And welcome to 2017, with a nice big ‘meaty’ newsletter to get the year off to a great start.  I’m still getting used to typing a ‘7’ for 2017 rather than a 6 (or 5….).  Time passes ever more quickly – and, for sure, the faster that the rest of winter passes, the […]
