Better Living through Time Travel

I recently took my oldest offspring to the airport for a flight to Los Angeles that marked her official journey into adulthood. A new college graduate (minus the COVID19-canceled graduation ceremony), she’s now settling into an apartment and independent life 3,000 miles from her childhood home. She couldn’t wait to leave. Given my KPI in parenting has always been to raise a strong, independent woman, I suppose I succeeded. But

How Safe Is Travel by Air In COVID Time? A JAMA Article Says It’s Safer Than You Think

People are generally poor at evaluating relative risk. They will drive long distances – something that is certainly relevant now – rather than fly, even though the risk of a fatal auto accident is much greater than that of a plane crash. They fear a flu vaccine but not the flu. 

But at this time, normally logical choices are nearly impossible because the knowledge of COVID is constantly evolving. People,

Physicist says you can time travel all you want, but the universe won’t let you change things

A physics student at the University of Queensland recently published a paper indicating they’d ‘squared’ the math when it comes to time-travel. Not only should it theoretically be possible to travel back in time, according to the numbers, but you could do whatever you want without making any fundamental changes to the present.

In other words: the ‘paradox of time travel‘ may not be real.

The problem goes like this:

First-class air travel will need time to regain glory

The pandemic has sent shockwaves through the entire aviation industry. It’s also not clear to what extent the premium market (first- and business class combined), which generated 30 per cent of airlines’ international revenues in 2019, can recover. For many airlines, business travel has not yet returned in any meaningful way.

Some overseas routes have resumed, but traffic has barely started to creep back. According to IATA, international passenger demand

Paradox-Free Time Travel Proven Possible by Physics Student

The rules of time-travel have been debated by scientists and sci-fi fans alike for years, but now a student physicist has been able to “square the numbers” to show how paradox-free time travel is theoretically possible. This means that should someone be able to time travel, the dreaded butterfly effect might not be as inevitable as has been feared — but that doesn’t mean a time-traveler might not still face
