-High Winds, too high of speed, no tugs used (windy), rudder too small or other mechanical issues --although it ran fine once dislodged.

Will settle out of court for sure. Not using the Suez Canal is way more expensive in fuel than using it.

Japanese cars I have owned that were super fun to drive were Hondas and Mazdas. Then there was my Datsun 1600 1968, advertised as the poor man's BMW. 100 MPH for $2000, rack and pinion steering, disc brakes. Drove it until it rusted out. What ever happened to that proud brand?

= They still make Datsun's.

This is actually a great business opportunity for someone to rent iPads to these students who can't afford them. Also a great opportunity to create WiFi access points. Software should be universal and coming from the Gov at a free or subsidized cost. Also should be options of using a LapTop.

Biggest issue is using LTE/4G/5G cell phone data = that will get very expensive for a student. Free WiFi is needed in and around the school area.

62 Year old ex-employee. Due to Covid-19 many food establishments have been shut down or open on a limited basis. As an employer or employee being in the food service industry has not been easy with inconsistent income (less work, less patrons) =however being tied to the Casino and hotel helped.

From the video:

The Duck Creek restaurant is in front of 1 of 2 Casinos (the small one) with a parking garage behind the casino. Larger Casino is to the West with a big parking lot. This area is just North (across 172 hwy) of the Brown County (Green Bay, WI) airport.

Good guys with guns missing in action. Step it up, y'all.

What do youAlso, there are laws regarding the carrying of firearms in restaurants in Wisconsin, for example you can only concealed carry if you're not drinking alcohol, not to mention the specific policies of the private establishments themselves. mean? The police arrived and shot him dead. If someone walks up to a person or group of people in "a targeted attack" and shoots them, there's not much anyone can do.

The Oneida Nation (and just about every Indian Tribe in the United States) is a "Sovereign Nation" that exists and co-exists within the US. =They have their own laws including gun laws. Haven't been in the Casino for at least 10 years, but I believe they do not allow guns of any type. Happened in the restaurant which is fairly new

Have never heard of the Oneida Nation so out of curiosity decided to look at their website suggested by Google which is oneidanation.org which diverts to oneida-nsn.gov which tells me "Forbidden - Visitors from your country are not permitted to browse this site." I wonder why.

This one works if you're interested:

https://www.oneidaindiannation.com/

Your first link is the correct one. There are two Oneida tribes and your link is the one for NY State (Sherrill or Oneida NY, Oneida Lake etc). The Oneida's of WI tried to buy up land that was once part of the Oneida NY reservation maybe 20yrs ago. So there was a sort of beef there, I think they get along now.

Posted in: Do you think remote working, where possible, improves productivity, creativity and staff retention for a company? See in context

You save alot of time not having to goto work and can get things done quicker and more efficiently. It is a move that should have happened in Japan years ago, but now is an excellent time to do those home office upgrades. Also you can have more tax deductions having a home office. You can also automate some things that will save you some time.

-It is big business working from home now and there are specialists that can help you choose the right equipment and getting it to run right.

It is a game of "chance" which means after so many tries you should be able to win. If the machine is rigged at 0% then the arcade (Sega) can be fined and/or shut down. =The Sega attendee should be able to win it after a certain amount of tries -if not, they are in trouble.

There are pros at this that can win the PS4 or just about anything (see UFO Catcher on YouTube). This is Japan after all and people play this game all the time. If fact many rare items are only "sold" thru these games.

Posted in: Ex-Nissan boss Ghosn calls Renault/Nissan results pathetic See in context

The real issue at Nissan is the lack of quality long term. The marketing and looks of the vehicles are very good, but the quality of Infinity/Nissan is not as good as Honda or Toyota. Many Japanese cars do not go many miles so you don't notice the lack of quality as much. The engineers/managers could only turn their heads for so long. So the marketing leadership style of Ghosn does not match the leadership of Nissan Japan or its employees.

Posted in: Have you given up on 2020 because of the coronavirus and are now just looking ahead to 2021? See in context

2020 is a great year. Had the time to sell a bunch of things that have been sitting and I didn't really need. I always purchased physical metals (gold/silver) so those are up. Had to restructure a few assets to take advantage of Covid-19. Working from home more (like everyone else) so it seems I have more time. Trying to automate things more to gain more life time for myself that I am using to improve my health and happiness. May work on my pilots license as a way of social distancing while still being able to get out and travel. Thinking of things that I always wanted to do but previously passed on due to time constraints. Maybe new business opportunities while others are going thru their Covid adaptive phase(s). Updating computers to larger multiple screens 32"+ 4k so I can get more than my previous 34" ultrawide LG (3 pages of text to maybe 20). May try some online classes.

excited about these things:

RAV4 Prime and other electric hybrid vehicles bringing 40-70mpg due to the larger 15kwh batteries.

AMD multicore cpu/server chips (Ryzen etc)

Power of Siberia gas line (Gazprom)

Exciting solar and battery technology. +battery shortages.

Exercise machines with large 32" screens (Android O/S)

I don't video conference, but since now it is expected I will work on my set-up etc.

Posted in: Japan's COVID-19 app reaches 4 million downloads in first week See in context

What is the point of this App? There's no follow-up. Even if you know you are exposed, you cannot get testing or treatment. Until they update the guidelines to reflect the existence of this App, this is not helpful at all, only makes people worry.

The app isn't mean to prevent you from getting the virus

The app shows the current infection hot spots. So if known people with Covid are in your area quarantining, it will show that. If known Covid people are moving around it will also show that. I would assume your cell phone will be notified by text if you were in an area or cross paths with someone that was recently diagnosed and will ask you to come in for testing.

This system works very well in China/South Korea and warns when Covid is bad in your area and you have the ability to work around that. You are also being tracked/traced and that info can be helpful for future testing.

Example: You have a Dr appt. You check the app and notice that place has high Covid activity recently. = You reschedule your appt or go knowing that the Covid rate is high for this area. It also puts pressure for businesses and communities to work harder to combat this engineered virus.

Posted in: Japan's farming industry faces falling demand, labor shortage See in context

JeffreyKJune 18  05:03 pm JST

I've heard it being reported before that the lack of school meals has reduced demand for produce. This baffles me though - does this mean that those children aren't getting any meals at home instead?? At the same rate that school meal producers lost business sales quantities in grocery stores and supermarkets as well as their suppliers should have gone up.

If that really wasn't the case then this should be taken as a serious warning sign about poverty...

Japan Inc needs to step it up now and make sure people are eating and remaining healthy. The big commercial sales to schools, hotels, business are down due to C19. The food model has changed and Japan needs to change with it instead of just throwing the food away etc. =Food programs for young, old, and Alts having difficulty for the time being.

Posted in: Money-losing Mitsubishi Motors execs to take pay cuts See in context

The issues here are the lawsuits and the internal emails of trying to remove Ghosn for maybe years. =That should be very interesting.

Mitsubishi needs to get back into making vehicles that people want. Dated interior tech and hybrid compared to the competition. Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia (#5 brand) other markets they are still strong. 2020 is a tough year and this data really reflects 2019 = expect 2020 to be worse.

https://www.mitsubishi-motors.com/content/dam/com/ir_en/pdf/financial/2020/200519-4b.pdf

-compared to the competition a $241 million loss for the year is not bad. But if 2020 has a similar or more loss that is not good and the reason management is making the changes now to limit losses.

Montero for the US market may be interesting. Need to bring back the Lancer Evolution and the O.Z. Racing stuff. Solid trucks and diesels (Non-USA). Hybrids. Solar roofs and larger batteries. Innovative, flexible, adaptive stuff, but with solid reliability and safety.

++Fuso truck division was sold years ago.

+++Mitsubishi Zero is a very rare airplane worth more than the Corsair. =P38 territory in worthiness and even more rare.

++++4g63 and Mitsu diesels. =Good stuff, probably cannot make emissions anymore. = Need hybrids for these.

+++++4g64 Shout-out! For all the turbo adders out there keeping the tradition alive.

Ivanka Trump has been involved in politics since the Wollman (NYC-Central Park) ice rink. Without Ivanka's constant encouragement (pressure) and steadfast dedication most political pundits have concluded the rink would have been eliminated from Central Park. It was basically Donald's ingenious building and political/media wit and Ivanka Trump vs the NYC political elites and media. Ivanka won when no-one thought it could be done. The rink still stands and for many a center-piece of Central Park.
