Posted in: Japan to introduce online booking for Mount Fuji trail See in context

I hope Fujinomiya trail does not fall into this rank this year. If it is necessary to pay the entrance fee before the start, it is O.K..

However, pre-booking the most popular trail may divert unprepared hikers to more difficult trails that are not up to them. I hope the proponents thought about it.

Yesterday's drop in the US indices could be seen as a hidden threat to the FED, in the event that it delays in lowering the interest rate. This may put pressure on them as America is in an election year and the market needs to stay healthy because of that. They are currently between two fires.

Those earning money from investment should be heavily taxed. Gambling and moving money around is not real work.

I apologize, but the money invested is obtained through my work. By buying shares, you help the company to develop. If the company is successful, it is a win-win combination. Therefore, I find it unacceptable that when selling shares, I would then have to give 50% to the state.

From my own experience: Give up sugar, alcohol and walk 10 km at least 3 times a week. After three months, a miracle happens.

I can't believe some of the negative response from the comments.

The gesture that offers a glimmer of hope for peace in the region is received even worse than the announcement of missile testing.

But you can be sure that your allies will do everything to prevent this from happening.

If the findings deviate drastically from the mainstream narrative, we will never be told the real truth.

Pull-back to 30k would be welcome.

The future of BTC is questionable for the next two years as far as ATH is concerned. Now there are big boys in the game who most likely will not invest billions in BTC at 50k. The halving will be especially interesting, and perhaps the opposite of what is expected will happen.

Of course they did. Maybe even security intelligence took part in the investigation. :)

Posted in: Mount Fuji climbers from Yamanashi side to be charged ¥2,000 as tourism rises See in context

If you go to Mount Fuji once in your life and travel halfway around the world to get to the base, I don't think this amount should affect the decision. Half of the amount should be used for landscaping and the rest should be donated to those affected by the earthquake.

He was most likely to blame for a major criminal offense, but they could not prove him.

They looked for a needle in the hay, and they succeeded.

Such an investigative team should be moved to the Department of Economic and Financial Crime.

Based on the injuries described, if he punched her with fists, it must be visible on them. May the lady have a peaceful afterlife.

Aviation, interesting. Maybe I could speculate that the conspiracy theorists are right. Enjoy the freedom of intercontinental travel while you still can.

Back to topic:

Internet links for comparison of shipping and air traffic are attached.



I don't think it's worth mentioning to compare the emissions of an airplane and a supertanker.

Posted in: From K-pop to sales girls: AI goes mainstream in South Korea See in context

Personally, I think that the AI that we have been dealing with lately is only the surface of the true power of AI, which is hidden and locked away somewhere. I myself use Chat GPT and Bard, to help make the software code for trading strategies and fifty percent of the time I end up figuring it out myself. Which isn't bad after all.
