      US-Born Muslim Scientist Held, Forced To Unlock NASA Phone Under Travel Ban

          'U.S.-born Muslim scientist Sidd Bikkannavar says he was detained under President Trump’s travel ban and forced by border agents to unlock his NASA-issued phone.

          'Bikkannavar is employed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) but spent a few weeks away pursuing his hobby of racing solar-powered cars. As a member of a Chilean team, he journeyed to Patagonia in early January under the Obama administration. He returned after Donald Trump took office and issued a sweeping executive order on travel into the United States.

          'When Bikkannavar arrived at the Houston, Texas airport from Santiago, Chile, he says U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents pressured him to turn over his phone and give them his PIN to unlock it. Because the phone was NASA-issued, he worried that it contained sensitive material that was supposed to remain confidential.

          'Nothing about Bikkannavar should have caused concern for CBP — he’s a natural–born U.S. citizen, enrolled in a program that allows individuals who’ve already passed background checks to quickly enter the country. In addition, he has never visited the countries on the immigration ban, and he’s 10-year employee of a major U.S. federal agency.

          '“I don’t know what to think about this,” Bikkannavar told The Verge in a phone call. “I was caught a little off guard by the whole thing.”

          'Bikkannavar detailed his experience on Facebook, explaining his absence to friends and coworkers.'

              My husband's employer is sending him there next month, and I am going to tag along. I just have to pay my own air fair. They are putting us up at the ITC Grand Chola, which looks very grand indeed. Anyone have recommendations on good places to eat nearby, as well as what I should see and visit while my hubby is working?

              Thanks.

                  I just watched 60 Minutes on CBS and was blown away by how the once murder-capital-of-the-world city of Medellin has been transformed by officials who care about ordinary, working people and put their needs first. After the drug wars, much of the population had fled up a steep mountain, where a slum had developed, similar to the "favelas" of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. These people were isolated and cut off from jobs and services in the city below, until officials stepped in and built escalators and cable cars to transport people up and down the mountain.

                  This affordable transportation system was not built for tourists, but adventurous tourists soon caught on, and publicized the area as a place worth seeing.

                  The U.S.A. lags so far behind other developed countries in its provision of mass transit and its support of ordinary working people, it's an international disgrace.
