Looks good, but a monster price tag.

I'll stick to cash in my shirt pocket, driver's license and library card in the car sun visor.

Posted in: EU reaches tentative deal on Ukraine aid coming from profits of frozen Russian assets See in context

The frozen Russian funds are $225b but they're drip feeding a meagre $3b to help Ukraine.

Ukraine is on a defensive footing and need all they can get to hold the Russian advances.

From body cam footage I've seen, it looks like a modern WW1 trench grinder of mud and shell-shock.

The Korean War ended up the same in 1953, and no progress has been made since.

South Korea has been on a readiness footing since 1950, a solid defence industry and compulsory military training. A leading partner in the Pacific.

Posted in: Make bath time more fun with the Magcase waterproof smartphone holder See in context

Catch up on the news or short videos as you relax into your bath after a long day.

Don't. Daily ablutions are a the only private affair you have so enjoy them as such.

Posted in: Musk says Tesla will unveil robotaxi in August See in context

Driverless taxis are exciting - many potential improvements in safety.

Conversely, I've read that they struggle in fog and rain and when they are not booked, they park and clog up side streets.

Posted in: If a job applicant is not sure how to dress for an interview, what should he or she wear? See in context

I haven't interviewed anyone face to face who didn't dress formally

However, with Teams/Zoom, I've interviewed several candidates in t-shirts. sweatshirts and a onesy. They weren't bad candidates, but when you have two similarly experienced candidates and one takes pride in their appearance, it often reflects in their work (not always, but most often). So those that do dress professionally set themselves up better.

So if you are having a first round Teams interview, dress as well as you can and smile.

The Labor Department reported Thursday that filings for unemployment claims for the week ending March 9 ticked down by 1,000 to 209,000 from the previous week's 208,000.

The math is off.

Posted in: The noise problem in conflict averse Japan See in context

I think this is why the Walkman was created in Japan.

Before that, there were radios and tape decks that had earphone jacks, but Sony made one small enough to be truly portable.

Not all the time, but sometimes, it is so enjoyable to see daily life accompanied by your favourite soundtrack.

Posted in: Nowadays, for fear of child predators, it is no longer considered safe in many countries to let young children go by themselves to and from school, to a friend's house, play in parks or at the beach, go to shops and so on. What was it like when you were growing up? See in context

For my community, for boys, it was a sign of weakness to be accompanied by your parents.

And parents fostered more independence and confidence by trusting them to know the dangers.

Then again we didn't have the internet which I believe has made children very vulnerable.

Contrast this to the involvement of the NZ govt's safety agency in NZ's Pike River Mine disaster, where many miner's bodies have been left in the mine. Common political hypocrisy and corruption.

Posted in: Execs at 4 major Japanese insurers to take pay cut over price fixing See in context

Much like the Toyota, Hino, Daihatsu emissions fraud case. Just told to stop production so that authorities scanned a few files. Then given the all clear to start the factory again.

Yet the average citizen is docked for parking their mamachari in the wrong spot.

They're always greasing the wheels for more corporate evasion.
