Sky Harbor airport officials want travelers to know there’s more to flying this Thanksgiving holiday than checking bags and standing in terminal lines.

“Thanksgiving is one of the busiest times of the year – not just in the skies but on the roads around the airport,” airport officials said in a statement. “It can even make picking up or dropping off family and friends potentially stressful.”

Some of the best advice, officials say, is to take advantage of the 44th Street PHX Skytrain station for pickup and drop-off.

The 44th Street PHX Sky Train Station is at the southwest corner of 44th and Washington streets and is accessible from interstates, main streets, and the Valley Metro Rail.

Another way to avoid problems at the airport is to avoid circling the terminals, according to airport staff. Instead, they advise using cell phone lots, east of Terminal 4, west of the West Economy Garage, and at the 44th Street PHX Skytrain Station.

Here are some additional travel tips:

  • Reserve your parking in advance. Reserve parking at skyharbor.com/parkphx and arrive early.
  • Set aside a time to go through the TSA security checkpoint screening area using the PHX RESERVE program. Make an appointment on the Sky Harbor website: www.skyharbor.com.
  • Double-check what’s in the bags and check the TSA’s list of prohibited items.
  • Confirm flight status before heading to the airport. Arrive at the airport at least two hours before departure for domestic flights and three hours for international flights.
  • For people traveling with a hidden disability such as dementia or autism, pre-book a Compassion Cacti lanyard, which alerts employees that additional time, assistance or patience may be required. For more information: skyharbor.com/lanyard for more information.

Twitter closes offices over ‘sabotage fears’ as ‘more employees quit’ | Scientific and technical news https://www.observingthesky.org/twitter-closes-offices-over-sabotage-fears-as-more-employees-quit-scientific-and-technical-news/ Fri, 18 Nov 2022 05:03:53 +0000 https://www.observingthesky.org/twitter-closes-offices-over-sabotage-fears-as-more-employees-quit-scientific-and-technical-news/

Twitter employees have been told that all office buildings have been temporarily closed – and more staff will be leaving the social media company.

Platformer tech site editor Zoe Schiffer tweeted that employees weren’t told why the offices were temporarily closed until Monday, November 21.

However, in a follow-up tweet, she said: “We hear it’s because Elon Musk and his team are terrified of employees sabotaging the business. Plus they’re still trying to figure out which Twitter employees they need to remove. access for.”

It comes as a new wave of Twitter employees are said to be leaving the company following a ultimatum from new owner Elon Musk whether staff sign up for “long hours at high intensity”, or leave.

Mr. Musk has not publicly commented on these latest reports.

Tesla boss’s ultimatum signals another step in his Twitter redesign, following his $44 billion takeover of the social media platform last month.

On Wednesday, Mr Musk sent an email to Twitter employees that they had until Thursday to decide whether they wanted to stay with the company to work hard hours or take a severance package of three months’ salary .

He said that to “build a revolutionary Twitter 2.0” the company had to be “extremely hardcore”.

The world’s richest man has warned that employees who did not click on a link confirming “you want to be part of the new Twitter” by 5 p.m. New York time Thursday would be deemed to have quit.

In a video uploaded, a group of people claiming to be Twitter employees counted the seconds, saying they were “about to be fired”.

But in an email to staff on Thursday, he softened his earlier tone, writing that ‘all that’s required for approval is for your manager to take responsibility for making sure you’re making a great contribution’ .

Workers would also be expected to have “in-person meetings with your colleagues at a reasonable rate, ideally once a week, but no less than once a month”.

Mr Musk tweeted that he wasn’t worried about quits because ‘the best people stay’, adding: ‘And we just hit another Twitter usage record…Let that sink in…’

He then posted a few bizarre tweets, including a skull and crossbones emoji.

This was followed by a post appearing to show a photo of a freshly dug grave at a funeral, with a Twitter logo on the epitaph and the same covering the face of a person dressed in black kneeling next to the tombstone, sticking his two fingers up.

Twitter employees have repeatedly posted the hello emoji online, in what has become a symbol of solidarity that someone has left the company.

The acquisition of Mr. Musk led to sweeping changes on Twitter, including the firing of the company’s board and senior executives, the abolition of remote working and the elimination of half of the workforce. work.

He also announced that Twitter will charge users $8 per month for blue check marks to verify the authenticity of a user’s account.

The inhabitants of Tennessee are inflamed on social networks by asking the same question: have you seen it?

A bright ball of fire lit up the sky around 9pm on Tuesday, stopping some people in their tracks and calling others to their windows to see where the unexpected light was coming from.

Soon after, Nashville residents took to Facebook and Reddit to discuss it.

“I just saw a crazy fireball falling from the sky through my window in Edgehill,” a Reddit user said in the Nashville subreddit. “It was bright blue and unlike any meteor I’ve ever seen. Has anyone else seen it?! It was BIG.”
