Ships, Mines and Magnetism - - This weekend, the Royal Navy was offering public tours of HMS Defender, one of their new-generation Type 45 destroyers. It's an astonishing ship: about 8,000 tonnes of steel and high-tech equipment designed to defend an entire fleet against air and missile attack. There's another type of attack it's more vulnerable against, though: the sea mine. And by luck, there was a good example of mine defence docked a little way upriver...

Why is GERMANY Growing More Than JAPAN? - VisualPolitik EN

Japan and Germany starred in two of the greatest economic miracles of the twentieth century. For three decades, both countries achieved huge growth rates, which allowed both Japan and Germany not only to recover from the damage caused by World War II, but even to become some of the richest countries in the world. However, in Japan, the model came to a sudden halt between 1989 and the early 1990s. Today, the German model has shown itself as superior and has reaped better economic and social results. So the question we ask ourselves in this video is, why has the German model...
