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.

Sounds like its time for a rerun of the documentary, "SUPERSIZE ME".

GenZ is struggling with obesity and diabetes, at least put a " Government Health Warning" on the packaging, as we do with cigarettes !

Posted in: Stubbed out: Japanese university stops hiring smoking professors See in context

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).

That is a great idea, well done Japan, obviously also emissions reduction too is important so Global Warming isn't bringing more insects, maybe Electric Cars.

Yes as Nissan is too (down 15%), maybe you need Ghosn to help you make EVs.

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.

Six months of weekend violence and no end in sight, shows how fragile is a calm society, and I agree, shocking how easy to raise money, for some old building, for some religion that is supposed to care for people, especially at Easter, hopefully wouldn't happen in Japan.

Hmmmm, is this a real story, Prius knocks over a garbage truck, and a bicycle with a three year old has no seat just a basket, this is not making sense.

Great article, shame its not a hyperlink, but if you paste to google, yes they did have issues with that car, with an overlong pedal (3/4"), and a mat that can dislodge, just a little surprising and tragic it happened here.

Mother and child riding out on crossing, no helmets, seen it all the time, but pedestrian hit seventy metres before crossing, accelerator didn't return, but no mention of brakes, seems odd, in all the comments only one about "autonomous", non about driving safety aids, it does seem odd you would hit a pedestrian and continue at high speed into truck, if there wasn't something electrically wrong with the car, so yes investigate the car.

Fingers crossed on the 30th, for the Japanese launch, the American rocket that just went up has a a potential payload of 140,000 pounds, so still some way to go.

estimating that most people only use their vehicles around 10 percent of the day, meaning the rest of the time could be dedicated to picking up fares. Owners could manage their car on the network using the smartphone on 5G

Maybe to share as to be driven, but without driver, it was called car pooling during rush hour and car rental at other times with autonomous cars blurring the line with Taxis and buses, trams and trains, the Docomo.com ebike at stations works well, Nissan have ecars for hire in Yokohama, my point is we need to clean up the last of the petrol cars they make.
