  1. Well if it makes you feel any better, they are simulated mines...
  2. Apparently there is s a lot more going on off the coast of Coco Cay than you might think. https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/33090/how-american-and-allied-submarines-regularly-fight-to-the-death-off-the-bahamas That’s right, there is a US Navy shallows/mine field training area just to the west of a Coco Cay. I had known about the much larger deep water training area to the south but the minefield was news to me. The facility that support these areas, AUTEC, was used to support the US response to Hurricane Dorian. How cool would it be to see a sub surfacing while cruising near Coco Cay?
  3. @twangster St. John. I paid attention to your live blog.
  4. After a quick check of Google Maps, you are correct! Tamp never even occurred to me, I was thinking Europe somewhere.
  5. I was this as B-Roll on a video about the virus and cruises and I couldn’t figure out the port. Any ideas?
  6. Is this so you can get back before the new policy goes into effect or because of your original flight being canceled? (I assume you were on the Allure TA)
  7. I would argue that they are doing this for public relations reasons. If they thought it was a major concern they would just cancel the sailings like they did in China but they are not. Now it could reach that point but we are not there yet.
  8. Quick question. Why didn't you just stay on the train and get off at Circular Quay? I was under the impression (admittedly with only minimal research) that all trains from the airport went to Circular Quay.
  9. I see they only had the fake trolleys out today.
  10. I am not saying that it is impossible, just unlikely. In the picture, that you posted, you can easily see the area that has been dredged for cruise ships and the east extension of the pier used to tie off large vessels. Your proposed bridge would go right through that area. Why go to the expense to do that and then block it off. Here are some pictures from the last 10 years or so that show that space being used for ships. Sometimes two ships, sometimes large ships. And ships are only getting bigger. I just don't see the local government allowing a bridge there that would limit the pier's utility in the future. That being said, a bridge would be really convenient, I just don't see it happening.
  11. I doubt the government would allow that, but if they did it would have to be a movable bridge or really high as some taller ships do tie up on the far side of the dock. The furthest slip also can handle the the largest ships or two back to back so I doubt the government would want to compromise that. Would be nice though.
  12. If you read the original article (http://www.tribune242.com/news/2020/feb/27/royal-caribbeans-pi-land-deals-revealed/), it sounds like Royal is buying up pretty much everything west of the Yoga Retreat (https://goo.gl/maps/o25HT4S8Gf4meN4f7). They are now trying to get access to the undeveloped government land between the last of the houses and the light house. When I was in Nassau in June, I thought that it was weird that a lot of the properties looked run down and abandoned. At the time I just thought it was just hurricane damage but it might have just been that Royal had bought them and were just letting them rot until they could tear them down.
  13. I was talking about using the guilty plea in the civil case that I am assuming would have a jury.
  14. After some more research, a guilty plea is admissible but it does not automatically mean that he is liable. He will have a chance to explain his reasoning for that guilty plea. It would be up to the jury to determine how that guilty plea will be used in their decision making process.
  15. But there are rules as to how such pleas are allowed to be used in the courtroom. It is not as simple as common sense would dictate. I am familiar with a simplified version of the Federal Rules of Evidence so I will differ to a lawyer who is familiar with the rules of evidence in PR. A guilty plea hear does not necessarily mean a spam dunk for the civil case. (I’ll do a little more research)
