Logan Airport Introduces New Ride-Share Plan to JetBlue and Delta

Boston’s Logan International Airport is finally introducing the long-discussed ride-share pickup changes.

The changes will see the current Uber and Lyft pickup lots moving from specific areas near each terminal to a centralised location built inside the airport’s Central Parking Garage.

Passengers passing through Terminal A and C will see the difference first because of the two terminals serving both JetBlue and Delta.

Massport, on Friday, announced a timeline for when the switch will take place.

Starting Monday, October 28, passengers travelling through Terminal A and C, who are planning on using pickup services such as Uber or Lyft, will be picked up at Central Parking Garage.

Terminal A receives Delta and JetBlue, while Terminal C serves JetBlue, Aer Lingus, Silver Airways, Cape Air and TAP. 

From November 4, passengers arriving through Terminal B and E, If they plan on using Uber or Lyft, will be picked up at Central Parking Garage as well.

Terminal B serves American Airlines, Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Spirit Airlines, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines and Boutique Air, and Terminal E serves all international airlines and all international arrivals in addition to a handful of domestic flights.

On Monday, November 11, all ride-share drop-offs between a timeline of 4 a.m to 10 a.m will move from the upper-level departure curbs to lower level terminal curbs. 

On December 11, Logan Airport is also planning to move all ride-share drop-offs to the central Parking Garage, unless they are between 4 a.m to 10 a.m.

The Logan Airport officials pushed for the changes to alleviate the situation of traffic congestion during peak hours.

Logan Airport will soon be among top 10 busiest airports in the world

As JetBlue and Delta are fighting it off for the upper hand at Logan, it is on its way to becoming one of the most bustling airports in the country. The battle between the two airlines is not only helping Logan increase the number of new routes but also in becoming one of the top ten busiest airports in the country by 2022.

The average growth rate of airports in the United States is at 3 percent. However, Logan is marking a passenger rate growth of about 5 percent a year. That means millions of more travellers flying out of Logan.

Delta is expected to add 60 daily new flights out of Boston by 2021, which will increase the number of daily passengers to 10,500. JetBlue is also adding 40 new flights a day, increasing the number of daily customers to 5,100. JetBlue is expected to begin flights from Boston to London in 2021. Both the airlines combined will add around 5.7 million seats a year.

Currently, Boston ranks as the 15th busiest airport in the country, coming up from 17th busiest from 2015.

Emotional Vigil Held For Taysha Silva Killed In Lawrence Crash

It was a very emotional atmosphere in Lawrence (Peabody) where many members of the locality came to attend the vigil in memory of 11-year old Taysha Silva who died in the horrific car crash on 13th July.

 According to  Carrie Kimball, a spokesperson for the Essex district attorney’s office, the crash occurred at the intersection of Andover Street and Winthrop Avenue. While one child was reported dead the driver of the offending car has been taken into custody.
The father of the deceased child, however, has forgiven the driver saying – he is also a human and like everyone else made a mistake. Other members of the Silva family were also injured.
Reckless driving has claimed many lives recently in Massachusetts despite efforts by local security personnel to act swiftly and educate people about road safety. We only hope good sense prevails among drivers and we all drive with a responsibility to ensure young lives are not lost. Let the memory of Taysa Silva guide us in this direction.

Arlington Police Officer Helps Deliver Baby Girl

ARLINGTON, MA — An Arlington police officer helped deliver a baby girl when a woman went into labor at home. Just before 5:30 a.m. on May 1, police received a 911 call from Arlington resident Ed McKinnon reporting that his wife was in labor at their College Avenue home.

Officer Brandon Kindle, who was in the area, “acted without hesitation,” police said. He went to the home to find Audra McKinnon giving birth on the kitchen floor and calmly talked her through the delivery.

Maeve McKinnon was born around 5:30 a.m. Emergency crews arrived at the scene and took Audra and her daughter to the hospital. Both were later released and are “doing well,” according to police.

 “Officer Kindle did an outstanding job on scene,” Chief Julie Flaherty said in a statement. “It was his professionalism, knowledge, training and quick response that ensured mom was able to safely deliver Maeve and keep both mom and baby safe until paramedics could arrive. He went above and beyond the call of duty and we’re extremely proud of the job he did.”

Audra and Ed McKinnon reunited Maeve with Officer Kindle at the Arlington police station on May 10.

“This was not a planned home delivery, so it was a kind of a scary situation,” Audra McKinnon said in a release. “Officer Kindle was able to remain calm and professional, which was really needed. We’re very thankful he was there with us.”

Kindle was awarded a pink stork pin for his actions.

Self-driving Cars – the ‘IT’ thing

With the clear chances of Self-driving Cars ruling the Streets by 2021, it is needless to say that the Future is here. Yesterday, Waymo, the dream Baby of Google’s parent company Alphabet, has been granted the green signal to initiate testing this self-driving fully autonomous vehicles on public streets of California.

Waymo will put SUVs for initial testing in limited Areas covering the Sunnyvale, Palo Alto, Mountain View, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills neighborhoods, reports THE VERGE. After facing failure with it’s very first to run, the Company has equipped the Car better to handle light Fog and Rain too.

Technically it’s a giant leap no doubt but Social Scientists has raised several questions over the safety measures and decision-making capabilities of these Autonomous ones. The Makers are trying to induct Softwares enabled to take decisions based on Traffic rules and emerging patterns.

The Computers controlling such Cars are also programmed to ingest a large volume of fast-changing information dealing with Routes, Road Blocks, Current Traffic updates and people around the Car. Still, no amount of testing can replace Human intervention. Verification of behavior of Machine learning Systems is a mystery yet to be solved.

Crucial questions involving the safety measures as what the Car will choose when all available options look equally bad? Will it choose to hit the wayward Cyclist or simply crash into an innocent bystander instead? Will the calculations differ with the age, the Socio-Economic status of both? Based on Political inclinations may be? The half a Century old THE PULLEY PROBLEM has raised serious Debates across the Globe. The concerns are more Societal than Technological. Evidently, the Answers will require more than just improvements in Engineering.
