you cant stop halfway or change tubes like if you need to get to denver. you neeed new tubes for that. or everyone could switch hyperloop trains if the need to keep going. that kinda defeats the purpose of the hyperloop. then you can see where you are because theres no windows, a place to go pee because i dont think theres a bathroom on that.

it has its own air so def no bathroom.

In theory there is only three cities that need to be connected by Hyperloop: NY, London and Tokyo. And for that reason, there will never be a thing operating called Hyperloop. Get over it, move on. Focus on improving ground transportation that benefit the most people, not some futurist gimmick.

Photo op isolated "construction" does not equal operation (and likely never will).

This New Airport Is Larger Than Manhattan

AD takes you inside Turkey’s new transit hub, which pays tribute to the country’s traditional architecture and natural beauty

Istanbul’s brand-new airport, called, quite simply, Istanbul New Airport, which partially opens on October 29, aims not only to redefine the country and make access to Turkey simpler. Located in the Arnavutköy district—on the European side of Istanbul, 20 miles outside the city along the coastline of the Black Sea—it sets the record for being the largest airport in the world: larger than the size of Manhattan, at 1.6 million square feet. It is set to completely open by the end of the year, effectively replacing the decades-old Atatürk airport. Eventually, the new airport will accommodate more than 200 million passengers, double the capacity of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta.

Great looking terminal. What's with the 1.6 million sqft typo? What did the mean to say?

It’s a confusing sentence. The terminal perhaps is 1.6 million square ft, and ALSO the airport is larger than Manhattan. But the sentence makes it sounds like Manhattan is smaller than 1.6 million square ft.

It clearly uses two subjects in the complex sentence, terminal and airport.
How is that confusing? Rules of grammar, subjects and predicates, hold true in most languages of this world. The language may be completely different, but basic structural blocks are the same....

^If you trying to sound as pompous as possible you are succeeding. It's a poorly composed sentence by every standard.

Look again electricron, it DOESN’T use two subjects. I am the one that makes the distinction between terminal and airport. It’s definitely not the best sentence.

Simplified metro system maps have been adopted by cities around the world, but when New York City tried to follow suit the public pushback forced a reversal. We dive into why New Yorkers insisted on using a "worse" subway map instead of the one that was widely considered to be "perfectly" designed.

There are two clauses in that complicated sentence, each with their own subject and predicate. #1 subject was terminal with predicate being is; #2 subject was airport with predicate being is. The conjunctive was and between the two clauses. Also is the extra word in that complicated sentence which may be considered bad grammar.

Additionally, this was a report about a new Turkish airport where English is not the native language. Someone or something translated it, which is often difficult to do. Never-the-less, I never got the impression that the airport was the same size as the terminal.

Thieves snap up rental scooters in SF
Carolyn Said
Nov. 16, 2018 Updated: Nov. 16, 2018 10:03 a.m.

Shared electric scooters are disappearing from city streets in high numbers as thieves target the portable vehicles.

“In the first two weeks, we lost 200 vehicles to theft, which was just shocking,” said Michael Keating, CEO and founder of San Francisco’s Scoot Networks. “People were grabbing them all the time. We realized that if we kept losing them at that rate, we wouldn’t have any left.”

In response, Scoot scaled back its vehicle numbers and expedited its plans to include locks on its two-wheelers.

San Francisco’s Skip has also experienced thefts but declined to specify how many. However, its vehicles have a wheel-lock mechanism so they cannot be ridden unless they’re unlocked with an app. Scoot’s two-wheelers can be ridden in manual “kick” mode without using the app — albeit in an unsatisfying experience, as they are not designed for that. Their electric motors require an app unlock to work. Both Skip and Scoot have alarms that go off if scooters are moved without being reserved in their apps . . . .
This is exactly what I expected from the moment these things apeared. How hard could it be for someone, or many people, in a city full of techies, to "hack" the systems that require an app to get them running?
