Posted in: Survey finds 77% of Japanese think Olympics cannot be held next year See in context

i think it should have been put back to 2024 and the one planed for 2024 put back to 2028.

That would give 4 years to find a vaccine for Covid 19 and everyone to be inoculated.

Without a vaccine, such events like the Olympics could be strip back in number of events and smaller crowds watching.

Currently the USA is a very dangerous place due to Covid 19 not being handled/controlled properly there. Would anyone want to be in the same crowd as USA supporters come to the games ?

Or any from other countries that has rising daily death count from Covid 19.

Until a vaccine is found and handed out, the world could be face years of unknown.

Posted in: Japan puzzled by Indonesia's policy shift over high-speed rail plan See in context

Railway experts say it would be difficult to integrate the two projects in practical terms as the width of the tracks differs.

Two track widths will mean trains from one track will not run on the other.

140-kilometer high-speed rail service linking Jakarta and Bandung, the capital of West Java Province, commenced in 2016 by an Indonesia-China consortium

Japan in September last year reached a deal with Indonesia on the outline of a separate railway project to cover the full 720 km distance between Jakarta and Surabaya,

So the 140 km from Bandung to Jakarta will be china width and 720 km from Jakarta to Surabaya another width.

So all change in Jakarta if traveling from Bandung to/from Surabaya. No non-stop express.

Out of all the money that has been sent, since the first agreement, reached the victims ?

Where has that money gone ?

STOP using these victims in political games.

Release the previous payments sent by Japan to them, as they are nearing the end of their lives and have already suffered so much during WW2 and since.

Posted in: IOC plans to hold cancelled Tokyo session remotely See in context

Would it not be better to postpone the Olympics by four years ?

To undo the lockdowns will take several months if done safely and a vaccine is still months, maybe as much as two years away.

If they moved Tokyo to 2024 and France to 2028 it would give the world a few years to recover and properly prepare for the Olympics.

France has lost time with their lockdown to prepare for the 2024 Olympics

If the virus does hit hard again it could put their preparing for 2024 in doubt.

World economy will take time to recover and world travel even longer.

Posted in: U.S. coronavirus deaths surpass Vietnam War toll as Florida governor meets Trump See in context

number of known U.S. coronavirus infections has doubled over the past 18 days to more than 1 million. The actual count is believed to be higher, with state public health officials cautioning that shortages of trained workers and materials have limited testing capacity, leaving many infections unrecorded

Trumph is proud of passing one million tests.

further evidence that caution may still be in order, an influential University of Washington research model often cited by White House officials and public health officials revised its projected U.S. coronavirus death toll upwards on Tuesday to more than 74,000 by Aug. 4, against its previous forecast of 67,000.

Is he also as proud of the 50,000 plus deaths ?

I seen a report on BBC News where the vice-president went about a ward WITHOUT a mask.

He said he did not need it as he and the people around him are constantly tested.

I pity the USA people having them as their current leaders.

Why does it takes a large amount of deaths in one smuggling run before anything happens in the countries these poor victims came from.

They sought a better life and found only a slow horrible death.

where poor job prospects, encouragement by authorities, smuggling gangs and environmental disaster all contribute to the wave of migrants.

On Friday, police in Ha Tinh said they had arrested two people and summoned others for questioning on suspicion of involvement in the incident.

Any of those arrested or going to be questioned have any links to the authorities that encouraged ones to leave ?

North Korean fishing boat that was reported to have sunk in the Sea of Japan.

A North Korean boat telephoned a Japanese fishing office to report that another North Korean vessel had sunk in the northern part of a rich fishing ground

Was this a false report ?

Posted in: Boeing spacecraft astronauts see new frontier for commercial space See in context

In the early NASA years, astronauts demanded some manual controls as they did not want to be simply cargo. Who can blame them. If some thing goes wrong you want some way to take control and survive.

automated Boeing CST-100 Starliner,

There is two worrying words together.

(Boeing) knew how big it was going to be, how it was going to be powered, but they really hadn't thought a whole lot about what the inside would be and how does the crew interface with the vehicle that's designed to operate automatically,

Nothing new there.

The design "is a great compromise between keeping it minimalistic yet at the same time giving the pilot the ability to understand where am I, where do I need to be, how am I going to get there, if things go wrong how do I fix them."

Yes, How do you fix a craft that will be fully automatic ?

"It comes down to watching (the spacecraft's) behaviour," said Ferguson, who led NASA's final space shuttle mission in 2011 and spent more than 40 days in space over his career. "We just want to make sure it doesn't throw us a curve ball."

An auto system caused the fatal crashes of two aircraft and they are still (months later) trying to fix it. So far they have a PATCH.

Risking death (you can never know how safe the drug is that you are smoking/injecting) in less harsh sentencing countries is bad enough without going to one where you risk the death penalty.

Using or dealing with drugs in those countries with such harsh sentences is totally stupid thing to do.

Boeing hopes a software upgrade and new pilot training will add layers of protection to prevent erroneous data from triggering a system called MCAS, which was activated in both the planes before they crashed.

That is not very reassuring.
