Grab seems to be the meanest player in the local ride-hailing market Most recently, hundreds of Go-Viet ride-hailing drivers have gathered in front of the firm’s headquarters in Ho Chi Minh City and turned off the Go-Viet application to protest the company's latest bonus payment policy. Specifically, the drivers have to earn 80 points to get VND240,000 ($10.4) of bonus instead of the 28 points for a VND180,000 ($7.8) bonus as before. The majority of them said that they will never reach the target despite working all day. According to Go-Viet’s score calculation, drivers will get 2.5-3 points after each ride during normal hours and 4 scores in rush hours. Thus, they have to complete at least 26 rides a day to get the bonus, while most drivers only complete 10-20 rides a day at most. Despite the complains, Go-Viet’s drivers still get a larger bonus than those driving for Grab, but less than Be – the newest entrant. Even with tightening bonus policy, Go-Viet … [Read more...] about Grab, Go Viet, and Be: who is the stingiest?

Similarities between the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines crashes, confirmed by black box data, have focused attention on an anti-stalling system used in the new Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft. The crash of an Ethiopian Airlines plane has put the spotlight on an anti-stalling system used on the 737 Max 8 aircraft. (AFP/Michael TEWELDE) The Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) is an automated safety feature on the 737 Max 8 designed to prevent the plane from entering into a stall, or losing lift. Both the Lion Air jet, which crashed in October, killing 189 people, and the Ethiopian Airlines aircraft, which went down a week ago on Sunday, leaving 157 people dead, were fitted with the system. Both planes experienced similarly erratic steep climbs and descents and fluctuating airspeeds before crashing shortly after takeoff. A malfunction of the system was implicated in the Lion Air accident in Indonesia. The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said findings from … [Read more...] about Ethiopian Airlines crash: What is the MCAS system on the Boeing 737 Max 8?

Viet Nam News Nguyễn Khánh Chi Recently, a top transport official said drivers who lose their licence should have to sit a driving test again. That’s lose as in misplace, not lose as in break traffic laws. Crazy, I know. Minister of Transport Nguyễn Văn Thể made the proposal in front of the National Assembly’s Justice Committee last week. Though his heart was in the right place in attempting to tackle those who take advantage of generous re-issuance policies by reporting their licence stolen to get new cards after having theirs revoked, the policy is inconsistent with the ministry’s own regulations. A 2017 circular from the minsitry dictates that one is eligible for a replacement if they lose their licence, as long as it hasn’t been revoked or seized by authorities. In New South Wales, Australia where I lived for two years you can order a replacement online if your licence card has been lost, stolen or destroyed provided you … [Read more...] about Full speed ahead is the only way for e-Gov’t to drive forward
