Lets not be ageist OR sexist OR racist; driving has got to the stage where its better tested with the inclusion of a simulator like a pilot, a health test, again, like a pilot, and occasional drug&alcohol testing,as you get with an operator of potentially dangerous machinery.

By all means get car companies like Toyota on board, am sure they would love the challenge, it would appear its been too difficult for Tesla.

Posted in: Carbon zero: The business case for renewable electricity See in context

Decarbonization of Electricity Production is achieved through Nuclear, but decarbonization of forest burn, both accidental and on purpose is of major concern, as is methane from farming and thawing , a far more more potent Greenhouse Gas, which also has doubled to 2ppm

Agreed this is the way they should have dealt with Ghosn, its just cos he's a foreigner, they deserve their profit drop, I will never buy Nissan again, and I see Renault wants to join with Fiat Chrysler instead.

Anyone know where you can get the polypropylene weave mattress, cool light and washable, used one in Kamata, but couldn't find one to buy, its made in Osaka I believe, tried IKEA, no luck, another one know or can put me in touch with organisers of the bed show, could be a great export for Japan, perfect for Australia !

You do realise that what little you do to keep CO2 ppm under 420 is dwarfed by Chinese influence to promote increased coal usage in surrounding nations under cheap BRI loans !

Well it does when its bagged and removed, down from 500 to about 20 rad, if that, get over it no ones dying, of much more concern is the chickens and pigs dying of flu.

Different you need radar like Tesla (not lidar), for poor visibility conditions, but Hitachi Stereo Camera work well in the clear, light or dark.

Three other cases in twenty comments, all kids pranking, but as you would imagine bad outcomes , broken bones and tendon damage, no one died, no intended victim, a year in juvenile detention, not attempted murder.

Posted in: Boeing wins confidence of shareholders, prepares for key 737 MAX test flight See in context

The real answer is to lengthen the wheel struts of the plane , then the engine can fit under the wing as Airbus have done.

Its the right engine to use as it is more efficient but its diameter is greater than the 737 was originally designed for, so it won't fit under the wing and at the same time give enough ground clearance, that is why they moved it forward, that is why they then needed a trim adjustment program to compensate, that is where the fault lies.

Lines which are designed and built from the era of freight are high maintenance, with many unstable timber sleepers, the curves are wrong to upgrade to high speed passenger service, and population corridors have moved away from the tracks, the same is happening here in Australia, there is much debate as to what if anything can be done with them, I would like to see single overhead rail supporting high speed gondolier.

I agree with this, but unfortunately, as nicotine is more addictive than heroin, when this happened, children of poorer families suffered terribly. No money for food, toys, clothes, holidays.

What surprises me is no poster has mentioned the revolution in products that give you nicotine without the smoke, it is super easy to give up "breathing in burning leaves and paper", when any super market will sell gum or spray or patch.

Doesnt matter its South Korea, meanwhile Norway have this !

The P2 Xcursion is designed to be not only affordable, but also to have an unusually roomy cockpit that can carry two people plus a generous amount of luggage. Instead of floats, it uses a fuselage that is self-buoyant and float wings that also provide greater stability. The blended fuselage with a retractable undercarriage is streamlined and the canopy and airfoils reduce drag.

In terms of the numbers, the P2 Xcursion with its composite construction weighs only 750 kg (1,653 lb), yet can carry a payload of 240 kg (529 lb). It has a maximum cruising speed of 130 knots (150 mph, 241 km/h), and a maximum range of 845 nm (972 mi, 1,565 km).

Maybe looking at the picture if pedestrian crossings were freshly painted, along with all road markings there would be fewer accidents, yesterday an old guy today a bus, a least fewer unemployed old children killing their parents this week.
