Posted in: Man dies after falling off train platform in Yamanashi See in context

I really would like to see the installation of platform gates speeded up. Even on the Yamanote line, the majority of stations still don't have them. I heard recently about an adjustable design that would be feasible for stations like the one mentioned in the article where trains of different configurations probably need to be accommodated.

Posted in: Anti-Mubarak activists pour into Cairo's main square See in context

It must take a lot of guts to be out there protesting in public against a dictator who's kept a tight grip on power for 30 years through censorship and torture. Mubarak needs to step down now, and let the Egyptian people decide their future through free and fair elections. I hope to see the same thing happen in China and North Korea in my lifetime.
