Posted in: Jetstar Japan to cancel 70 flights in June due to pilot shortage See in context

Its pretty simple mathematics. When low cost carriers are charging 300 dollars for a flight which would usually cost 1,500 there is no way those carriers can buy spare parts from the manufacturer.

I always believed when low cost carriers got introduced there would be the ups and downs which was quite obvious. Upside being flying from point A to point B for extremely cheap prices and the Downside being stories like this where you have last minute cancellations etc etc. The one part which I wish to caution all my friends is please be very careful with spare parts on airplanes. Its pretty obvious when airlines purchase something as small as nuts and bolts from the original manufacturer the cost of the product is something like 10 times higher than buying it out of a factory in China. Not too sure you want to take that chance.

Although there is no proof of the matter in this case I wish to point out the biggest culprit around the world today are mobile phones. I see drivers looking at their phones sometimes even texting while driving. Police need to get tough on such people.

When is this military style of culture going to change. Too much power in the hands of people like Company Bosses and teachers etc etc. Its disgusting to have to hear about a 15 year old take her life just because of this stupidity. Even the old school laws need to be changed!!!!!!!!

I have ridden on bullet trains for decades and until this incident did not have a clue doors could be opened by passengers or rather JR staff. This guy is a total idiot

Posted in: 42 people injured after suspected gas explosion destroys buildings in Sapporo See in context

Frankly I thought these sort of things only happened in the 70's or the 80's. Come on Japan with all the modern technology in todays world are we seriously still living in the dark ages of using gas cylinders??? Its time for the government to enforce some strict new laws for old structures to upgrade. I used to live in an apartment building in Japan 20 years ago and the system was so high tech that every time there was any sort of a gas leak the entire system would either shut or all sorts of alarms would go off. Thankfully there were no major casualties in this incident but if the government does not implement new regulations unfortunately we are going to see a lot more similar incidents.

Pretty shocking to see something like this in the year 2018. We are not living in the 1960's

Posted in: Bullet train operator holds drill involving knife attacker See in context

Well it is a start but I call it a band aid solution. An attacker would have already committed his crime before security arrives with their poles. Why not just do a straight forward security check like airports? I understand based on the fact I lived there Japan is by far a safe country but economic disparities is creating quite a bit of anger and unfortunately you are going to hear of more crazy people just losing it and committing similar crimes moving forward. Hopefully that does not happen.

Pretty silly if you ask me. If they are really in love as the article claims why cant the royal family just clear the so called debts and move on.

Hats off to all Corporates who cancel endorsement contracts of professional players of any sport who think they are above the law. I am hoping other sportsmen and women view this as an example to behave themselves!!!

Posted in: Japan wakes up to N Korean missile warnings See in context

I am actually wondering if the missile could have hit a commercial plane in its path. This is an extremely dangerous game to be playing because accidents can happen and if it does then the Government of Japan and the US will have no choice but to respond. That could lead to a full scale war. Pretty crazy.

Posted in: How algorithms (secretly) run the world See in context

Unfortunately We humans have become too reliant on technology which includes algorithms. GPS is one of the biggest issues. On many occasions the GPS in your car will take you to your destination using the longest possible route. If you just used old school techniques and asked someone on the street for directions you would get to your destination a lot faster.

Posted in: Some women find escape from poverty in sex trade See in context

I think the stories of both these women is rather sad. Circumstances have forced them into this trade. It goes to show conventional jobs cannot cover expenses. I am a worldwide traveller and I have heard similar stories in many different countries.

Posted in: Osaka train driver apologizes to Japanese passengers for ‘having many foreigners’ on board See in context

****Dont these idiots realise there are so many Japanese people who live abroad. Today Mr Abe is running around to different countries signing business deals because the local consumption is declining so Japan has to open up its factories in other countries to survive. People need to be educated.
