by supporting the computers means that no human being needs to be paid and your money goes directly for profit to Uber. This creates a non human economy.

they want the unemployment lines to rapidly increase and of course no taxes to be placed upon them either. It's crazy. The technology goes too far and only had to help drivers be better drivers as a warning system, not replace them

This is a question wrongly asked, and the heart of the problem people have with science since the definition of a theory is different in both domains. Also add a third domain area not otherwise known until the Internet began; triumphant ignorance.

it comes with the snowboarding culture. They all still compete, and the USA atheletes will win medals on top of that, making Japan's conservative views obsolete. Legalization is expected in Canada as well in a year/ few years? Eventually it's not going to matter anymore than alcohol impairment.

I'm more interested to know what other short take off and landing (STOL) planes Japan has? Twin Otters? C-130's? SK sent in a C-130. DHC's are used around the world, in its native Canada as well as Australia and host of island countries. Probably everywhere. Also the old de Havilland's are being rebuilt and new models built in BC under Viking. They've also been built around the world under licensing. They're quite common for passenger, cargo and medivac uses.
It remains a mystery what planes Japan has for the needs of STOL for rescue services that would be more locally available rather than coming all the way from Okinawa. The lack of other vehicles is what makes this a PR stunt rather than just another part of a rescue operation

another quiet win for France technology. It was Japan itself that turned to France for working industrial robots during Fukushima because their cutesy ones have no practical application. With government support and experience behind it, the France bid is the safer choice so that works out.
The Japanese bid was inflexible from the start and without previous experience it would have been a "regrettable" failure. Australia just wanted subs, it didn't want to have to deal with oyajis

The superdelegates don't vote until the convention, and are free to change their minds like in 2008 when Hillary lost. Media aren't allowed to mention that apparently.
Also they're supposed to represent the will of their state but like Alaska which went Sanders the superdelegate proclaimed on record to hate Sanders supporters and gave support for Hillary, making a mockery of the process. That has likely been repeated.
Also read that because NY was a closed primary, voters had to have registered way back in October, long before the race started, and long before a surge of interest in Sanders even began. There wouldn't have been enough Sanders supporters registered to vote. NY was basically a vote from an October snapshot of voter registration. No one else was allowed. Pretty silly.
The whole thing is a mess. Sanders did well though, and showed that if you have principle you can garner support without corporations. Certainly lampooned Hillary into changing her words over and over. How sad is that.
Hopefully USA will take their elections more seriously in future. I think Sanders was the best bet for change. When Hillary is crowned it'll be back to same old same old

Solar blimps seem more realistic considering the speed. More surface area might improve it. Probably not a lot of helium available but you wouldn't need many vehicles. Lots of time to even take up some hobbies like playing the guitar and enjoying the moment... Led Zeppelins!

Since these are just lists of names, they can make them portable. Maybe give the parchment list of Class A's to the black vans so politicians can go running after them, like kids and ice cream during every election to get the rightwing Imperial vote. That'll also free up Yasukuni of the righties and costumes and return it back into a proper national memorial

Scratch the Class A's off the role call and that's it. This is all about a piece of paper in a house.

It's amazing how people can run countries into the ground, and keep getting reelected to do so, who would never be hired anywhere else.
Instead of throwing good money after bad, Japan had better get used to retraction as its new model and elect people who can balance a budget.
