World's first electric-powered trackless train launched in China

Using virtual rail lines on the streets, the trains can travel up to speeds of 70km/h.


I'm not sure how you define a train, but in my book at least, if there's no track it's not a train

and what's a "virtual track"

Indeed! It's got the disadvantages of a train (constrained to a "track") without the advantages of a train (very low rolling resistance for steel wheels on steel track).

Nor is it the first. The trains at the Denver Airport (and probably many other airports) have been trackless electric for over 20 years.

China exam tests students on teacher names
the article seems to think it's to penalize people who cut class and have no idea who their teacher, but I'd guess that it's also aimed at people who've paid someone else to take the exam for them

Trump is going after Chinese IP ‘practices.’ https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa- ... SKBN1F62SR

Anyone who has written a book or done business in China knows that there are ‘issues’ with these ‘practices.’

I know Cuch has views on this. I expect he will be thanking Trump.

Paul closed down businesses in China back in 2010 due to franchisees there failing to implement brand standards.

This is, in principle, a worthwhile endeavor. Had there only been a shred of competence to back up the hot air...

"President Donald Trump said on Wednesday the United States was considering a big “fine” as part of a probe into China’s alleged theft of intellectual property, the clearest indication yet that his administration will take retaliatory trade action against China."

What's wrong with the theft of intellectual property? The whole quant finance is based on it.
