Google Flights Book

Google now uses artificial intelligence to even predict any flight delays. The novelty is part of a series of new features announced for Google Flights, the Big G service for searching and comparing ticket prices on the plane.

In addition to reporting to users the delays already officially reported by airlines for specific flights, the platform will now add the reason for the delay and will also share the predictions of possible delays.

The latter information will be extrapolated from machine learning software on the basis of the data history of a given route. These predictions, Google explains on his blog, will be shared if for artificial intelligence the probability of the occurrence of the delay will exceed 80%.

The service will also give additional information on the options included in the Economy fares of the flights shown by the search results, from the choice of the place to the possibility of boarding a baggage. For now these details will be available for American, Delta and United companies.

The Season for Soils

Hey Gardeners!
It is soil season again so I am preparing to bring in pallets of the good stuff for you. Sadly you will notice a significant price increase on some products this year. For this I apologize but my suppliers have also raised my costs significantly. The prices listed below are all taxes and shipping in. First order to arrive March 3rd. Preorder only.

Welsh student wanting to come stay, volunteer and do some informal research

Hello! 

My name is Tesni, I'm 21 and study Geography at the University of Cambridge (UK). I'm from rural, coastal Wales and have grown up around friends and family who live off-grid. I work at eco-friendly festivals in the UK, I love to make art, read, write, hike... and just be outdoors!!

I'm writing about the possibility of coming over to Lasqueti this summer to volunteer, explore, meet Lasquetians and do some informal research. As part of my third year university thesis, I'm carrying out research on off-grid, low impact and alternative lifestyles and communities. I've previously spent a bit of time volunteering and WOOFing in Europe and Central America. 

I'm really interested in what motivates people to live off-grid, and myself have always been really driven to explore ways of living alternative to the isolating, excessively consumerist Western model... so my interest in Lasqueti isn't an abstract desire to academically research a 'quirky' community, but rather just something very personal!

If anyone would consider hosting a very friendly and motivated young person for any amount of time July or August, I would absolutely love to come over, help out and learn more about your community. I don't have any predetermined expectations, and won't romanticise Lasqueti as 'utopia', rather I'd just love to talk to people about whatever feelings/ thoughts/ ideas you want to share.  

Please contact me on the email address below, even if just to chat about my ideas in more depth -

Thank you!! Tesni =)
