But she also noted wryly that the restaurant's most popular menu items are things like whale cutlets and croquettes.

"They like the things that don't taste much like whale, which seems like a bit of a waste," she added.

To waste, you can add, cruelty, they are a social creature, and you are killing its members, with small explosive hooks !

Really really bad PR for Japan.

Add to that the flight paths above, and the Underground below, not to mention, they haven't banned cars and trucks, which in most cases are still, "combustion type", and you get a feel for the smelly hit energy load, added of course to solar radiation, no wonder they have their doubts about the temperature of the Marathon Event, at the Olympics 2020.

At least its clean energy, but the amount of junk up there does seem to be increasing rapidly, imagine if other countries adopt a Star Link approach, its going to rapidly go into the tens of thousands of "loaf " sized satellites.

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 !

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.
