Good article. A clean slate then. The start of the season will surely be fascinating as everyone tries to iron out their bugs.
The HERS collects heat around the turbo axle. Pirelli say the tyres can lock up with these new engine systems and one lock-up can wear the tyres right through the belting. Expect drama!

Anything we like? I like driving better than any of those things they suggested.
Engaging with reality sharpens my senses and deepens my concentration. Do they want to take that pleasure away from us? Is it really 'inevitable'? :8(

There are some sick people wandering around. This kind of subversive action is a very Japanese form of expression, even if it is one sick and sorry individual.

The result was the combined scores over two days. Adelina's performance on the first day was really original, young, vivid, eye-catching, modern and international. Twice Russian champion, she also had the suss factor behind her towards the Russian skating federation who had previously passed her over. The Russian and international crowds loved her for this too.
I agree that on the second day, the final was probably much closer than expressed in those scores, but I do not think that Kim Yuna, despite being almost perfect, in a mature and beautifully Korean way, would have been able by her performance on that day alone to overturn an overall two-day result. She skated her very best and it was wonderful, I totally agree. Judged solely by the heart, she was the golden winner by far.
If I had a complaint, then perhaps the combined scores should have been much closer than that. Sometimes the judges in their haste to make a distinction clearer may mark slightly higher and slightly lower, in this case creating perhaps too wide a gap.

No 4 at Hamaoka is the reactor with the fewest problems, within the geographically most dangerous nuclear plant in Japan.
The whole country breathed a sigh of relief when Hamaoka was 'permanently' shut down by the previous government.
Having spent so much money on the new sea wall across the sand dunes, Chubu Electric will be pushing to restart. If a restart at Hamaoka gets the green light, then it may open the floodgates. Restarts across the country will surely be easier in comparison.

It would be interesting to know how old and how close to normal design life expectancy each of these reactors is.

The tarp came off, and then went back on again. Red Bull failed to set a time.
In that respect, Ferrari did a better job yesterday with Kimi setting fastest time. Mercedes also managed to get the car moving, but they then grabbed the headlines with Lewis's crash.

When I was a college student in the US we had some pretty cold winters, but no-one made much of a fuss about them.
There may be some truth in the old saying, 'Ignorance if bliss'.

The article says Norfolk/Suffolk county, but that is for the US readership for ease of understanding.
Norfolk and Suffolk are both counties, yes, but people in the UK people would never say 'Norfolk county'. They would either give it the proper title of The County of Norfolk (or Suffolk to the south), or since everyone knows it is a county, usually just the general appellation of 'Norfolk'.

"Kim's aunt appears OK" in the title carries a wealth of different meanings.
Reading the article, we find that she appears poorly and sick/ill, but politically unaffected by the NK-style reshuffle. As to her emotional reaction to her husband's execution, the article tells us nothing, so we can only guess. She appears to be one cold lady, but in NK it seems that people need to rat out your fellow, in order just to survive.
