Why do we have to worry about space for graves?


I've heard that a person in Brasil was afraid that there would be no space of graves, if human beings continue to bear offsprings and death of them are repeated.
When I heard that, such a problem woundn't happen soon.
But, in Hong Kong, it has already been happening.
Solution seems to be putting them in houses.

Why marriage at 'appropriate age' is promoted?

Indonesia raises minimum age for marriage to curb child brides

While pregnancy of aged ladies has been an issue, developing countries are puzzled with child brides.
The former one has higher risk of bearing disabled children or dead children. On the other hand, the latter is problematic, because bearing children at younger age results in lack of education or skills of the parents.

Even if the government ignores this bill, there will be less and less children who marries after economic development.
But, it would be better to curb child brides beforehand.

Why are cables still used?

The global internet is powered by vast undersea cables. But they're vulnerable

I think undersea cables are vulnerable, considering how difficult it is to protect them from external effects.
But, unless technology to alter it is invented, we have to use those cables.

Why are there fewer people?

These Italian towns in Molise will pay you $27,000 to move there

The biggest problem that rural area has around the world is lack of attractive points as to lure young people. Concretely speaking, it's lack of job with enough salary and lack of places for shopping.
So, I think it's important for them to invite big plants or big shopping malls.

Tokyu 3020 series train is under trial operation(東急3020系試運転)

We went to Tamagawa.Sta to take pictures of the train.
Since many rail fans seem to know the detailed diagram, more than 6 people were taking pictures of the same train from the same point.
Every time train departs from or passes through the station, a platform supervisor warned us.

This one is objective one

I could see that mascot of the Tokyu Corporation is put in the train conductor room.
The trains seems to be running between Hiyoshi and Meguro on Tokyu Meguro Line.
Since all of the current trains on the line have through service to Tokyo Metro Namboku Line, Toei Mita Line, and Saitama Kosoku Railway, section of the trial running will be extended to these lines.

Why don't they install traffic signals?


Though we can understand that the country aims at eco-friendly society with people's real hapiness, it would be another thing that the country has no traffic lights. Considering its impact on natural environment and its effect on transportation safety, traffic lights won't be the ones that must be excluded from eco-friendly society. The purpose of the country will be achieved by installing contemporary technologies as well as keeping traditional healthy lives.
