Re: Breaking: Biden administration deploys teenage truckers to ease supply chain issues

[b]Giant Kites That Drag Cargo Ships Across Oceans Go on Trial

12-16-21 this was an actual headline , remember when they called them SAILS

Add ships being dragged along by giant kites to the list of things the industry is exploring in its quest to decarbonize.

At the start of next year, the Ville de Bordeaux, a 154-meter-long ship that moves aircraft components for Airbus SE, will unfurl a 500 square meter kite on journeys across the Atlantic Ocean. It will undergo six months of trials and tests before full deployment.

it was called sails hundreds no thousands of years ago and was proven to take to long to ship compared to steam and combusition engines...

New Presidential Executive Order Targets Maritime Industry and Ocean Carriers



On July 9, 2021, President Joe Biden took aim at the ocean shipping sector of the maritime industry with the issuance of his Executive Order (E.O.) on Promoting Competition in the American Economy. The E.O. addresses shipping, along with other industries, and is intended to promote fair competition in the American economy. The E.O. specifically references consolidation in the maritime shipping industry during the past couple of decades, suggesting that such consolidation may disadvantage U.S. exporters. To this end, the E.O. encourages the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) "to ensure vigorous enforcement against shippers charging American exporters exorbitant charges and to "consider further rulemaking to improve detention and demurrage practices and enforcement of related Shipping Act prohibitions."

Notably, the E.O. also calls on the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to cooperate with the FMC and other agencies on the investigation and enforcement of existing antitrust laws.

If this wasn't satire, it would just be used as an excuse to keep wages low for truckers who aren't owner-operators.

Young inexperienced drivers, I bet they're cheap to hire. Not like a 25 year driver who makes some decent cash.

They are a hell of a lot better these days than vaxxed drivers. for fucks sake.. a DUI .20 driver drives better than these loons now. You cannot dispute this fact, because every single one of you are driving slower now afraid you are going to get hit by one of these idiots.

This is coming from someone that drove ambulance for years and considers himself a professional at defensive driving. Every day now I fear I am going to get plowed into no matter what precautions I take.

Exactly. Nor will an insurance company (well Progressive will for $25K/year, truck and trailer) insure a driver who is not at least 21 with at least 3 years of experience. I work in commercial insurance and deal with this daily; owners just cannot find enough qualified drivers.

How about that import truck driver that didn’t read English and passed 4 runaway truck ramps on the way to a huge FIERY crash killing four and injuring dozens and closing Roads around Denver and recently sentenced to 125 YEARS in prison

He was foreign AND 23 years old

Most companies hiring for drivers in the mountains want at least age 25 and clean driving record and proof they can READ THE SIGNS !

(The Governor changed his sentence to 10 years or so - not sure)
