When you are trying to solve a problem, remember this.

When you are trying to solve ...


Sherlock Holmes. How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?



Do you know who said this?
I always apply this train of thought when I come across a problem.
I have to make sure that I eliminate all the things that is working to get to the problem.

People are not just data.

スレッド
People are not just data.
I watched many news about how people should stay-home to avoid the spread of the virus. They say if you cut the human contact by 80%, Coronavirus will die down quickly. They show the simulation graph showing that.

Okay, I got that. But human are not just pixcel on the graph. Each one of us have a brain and feeling and needs and dislike. People are willing to die for what they believe. That has nothing to do with government or doctors or professors or news medias say.

Lives are more important than your freedom. No, people die for freedom. At least people in America live and die for their freedom. So, just do not ask us to act like lab animals. We are not just a data. If you want us to do something, you say “please...”. Don’t just tell us like we have no brain or feeling.

Now I have a Windows Laptop. I was thinking about getting MacBook or MacBook Pro but I just do not feel like spending so much money for what I use my computer for.

My desktop is Mac Mini from 2012. Yes it is 8 years old. But I replaced hard ships to two 500GB SSD and memory to 16GB. It works fine but I cannot carry it around. I needed a laptop. I would not have a learning curve if I use MacBook but I just want to give Windows try.

This Lenovo Laptops has 8GB memory and 500GB SSD. It was left in the storage and nobody was using it. It is perfect Windows Machine for me.

Mayumi has been one of my favorite Indian restaurants in Redmond. Their buffet lunch is great. Since March 16th, PSPinc has been providing lunches to the people who are essential for running the datacenter. I think this was the third time ordered from Mayuri.

Looking forward to eating their buffet again when they open.

What did we, Washingtonian, do better than NY?

スレッド
Bellevue, Washington Bellevue, Washington
Population of NY State = 19.45Mil
Population of WA State = 7.62Mil

Area of NY State = 54,556 SQM
Area of WA State = 71,362 SQM

Population Density of NY State = 365 people / SQM
Population Density of WA State = 107 people / SQM

Par Capita Income of NY State = $37,156
Par Capita Income of WA State = $57,896

No. of Coronavirus Infections Reported in NY State = 200,000
No. of Coronavirus Infections Reported in WA State = 10,000

No. of Hospital Beds per 1000 in NY State = 2.7
No. of Hospital Beds per 1000 in WA State = 1.7


----

Just looking at those numbers ... why do you think we have so little Coronavirus Infections? Here are what I came up with.

(1) NY State gas more than 3 time the people density.
(2) Average income is 35% less in NY compared to WA.

Those two factors seem to contributed a lot to the outcome of this pandemic. Unfortunately, it always come down to the wealth. I do not know the number of infections based on the income level within the State. That will be something I would look at.

Surprisingly, NY State has more hospital beds per 1,000 than WA State. So it does not seems to be the medical system break down that caused explosive infections in NY State.

By no means the pandemic is over.
Let's keep up the good work. I think looking at those numbers, avoiding close contact with other people may be the key. There will be time to shake hands when it is over.

I really hope we will see the slow down in the infection rate and death. Take care everyone.

You have better chance of getting COVID-19 and die than hitting the jackpot on lottery. First time in my life, I feel like there is a chance of me contracting this and die from it. The sad part is from the day you first show your symptom, you may only have 2 weeks (if not less) to die. And you man not be Abe to communicate with anyone one you are hospitalized.

I am not ready for that. Is anyone ready for that? Do I have to get ready? What are the things I need to do? How about people working at my company? Hmm...

Many restaurants are hurting because of COVID-19 pandemic. But companies like Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. which takes acre of Internet and other infrastructures have to work as usual.

Since restaurants are closed, you need to order lunch from the restaurants. Many of the restaurants are not adjusting menu or pricing. The menu above is taken from the Take-Out only Japanese Restaurant.

The restaurant should adjust menu and pricing to provide services to the people who have to work. And there is a business opportunities here.

You cannot import cars from Japan easily unless the car is over 25 years old. There are companies in Japan specializing in exporting 25 and older Japanese cars into the US.

In Japan, most cars are kept in god shape because of the Japanese regulations with a lot less mileage. You can often find cars with less than 50,000 miles. Do you think you can start importing cars from Japan?

The picture above is The Port Island Line, commonly known as Port Liner. There are many innovations on this transportation system, Here are some of them.

(1) It is totally operated unmanned. (There is no driver or conductor on board)
(2) It runs on the track not rail. There are rubber tiers. (Less Noise and Smoother Rode)
(3) Automatic Windows Dimming ... When it pass near the building, windows dime to assure privacy.

This is an alternative to light rail. It can be modified to run on the street instead of traditional rail only system. I think it may have been the better system than the light rain we are building in Seattle area.



What is Port Liner?

The Port Island Line, commonly known as Port Liner is an urban automated guideway transit system in Kobe, Japan, operated by Kobe New Transit. Opened in 1981, the Port Liner was one of the world's first driverless urban transit systems, followed closely by the VAL system used on the Lille Metro, which opened in 1983.

Source: Wikipedia

What is Yurikamome

New Transit Yurikamome, formally the Tokyo Waterfront New Transit Waterfront Line, is an automated guideway transit service operated by Yurikamome, Inc., connecting Shimbashi to Toyosu, via the artificial island of Odaiba in Tokyo, Japan, a market in which it competes with the Rinkai Line.

Japan Business Opportunities : Self Patking

スレッド
Japan Business Opportunities :...
In many developed world, human cost is the most expensive items in any business. In the world of parking, at what point it is cost effective to hire parking attendant?

In Japan, many of the open air parking were turned into machine controlled lots. When you park your car at any spot and a flat that urns up making car locked in. The only way you can unlock and free the car is to pay the due.

Also, parking lots are monitored 24 hours. If you park the car without activating the flap, a flap can be turned on after xxx minutes. Many of the US parking are controlled at the gate with usually people looking around.

I think the parking system like this wil work in the US.

Should we wear masks?

スレッド
Should we wear masks?
One of the phenomenon in Japan is the fact that people wear masks even before COVID-19 Pandemic, There are several reasons why people in Japan wear masks. Here are some of the reasons:

(1) Air Pollution
(2) Allergy
(3) Cold (Not to infect others.)
(4) No Need for Make-Up
(5) Looks Cute
(6) Hide Identify (For Celebrities)
(7) Hide Facial Expressions
(8) Fashion

Because of this, Jaoan may be experiencing one of the slowest Pandemic development. Unfortunately, people cannot wear masks when they drink or eat, That also may be the reason when there are clusters of infections at bars and Karaoke in Tokyo.

Japan Business Opportunities : Shokken 食券

Choose the item you want and pay for it.
Evolution of Kiosk Ordering at... Evolution of Kiosk Ordering at McDonald's in the US

Shokken is a food voucher vending system that many small Japanese fast-food restaurants uses. The system is simple, you choose what you want to eat listed on the machine and pay. The machine spits out the voucher which you can take it to your table or food ordering counter. They take half the ticket and you keep the other half.

When the food is ready, you give them your half to exchange with your food. It is a very simple and effective ordering system. It will save restaurant the time and money by eliminating the food order taking processes. Also, many or credit card never exchange hands with the employees making it more secure.

Bunglers are less likely to attack establishments use Shokken system because all cash are stored in the machine which is not easy to break in. The only draw back is the fact that the establishment looks very cheap.

However that is changing. In the US, in addition to the food ordering counter at McDonald’s, there are kiosks that you can use to place an order. That can be considered an evolution of for ordering. Whether you like it or not, machines will be taking your order as it has been for many years in Japan.

Japan is know for its vending machine culture. Gachapon is one of the validations of vending machine. Instead of buying specific item, you get one of the something in the machine. It started as a game for a child to get small toys.

I always thought that I would never buy anything from this as it was designed to server children. However, it represents 30 billion yen industry … that is $380 million dollar. And nw it is not limited to a little toy. Now, there are capsules containing electronics, camera, brand name fragrances, accessories and so on.

Capsule prices ranges from 100 yen to several thousand yen. Do you think this will be popular in the US? Next, do you have any products you might want to sell through thus in Japan. Some of the limited number items sell out and traded at premium prices on auctions sites.
