Posted in: Iceland lawmakers discuss citizenship for Snowden See in context

I see from 68 members on the Icelandic Gov to 38 what is it ? , BTW the more I dig into ANY countries CIA, KGB Mossad etc. Those behind the scenes so called " security" or "safety" or "we are looking after you agencies", history all over the world for thousands of years have shown those people are anything BUT looking after you. That also includes the UN what a sink-hole that is, (i think that's how insurance agencies work as well).

Posted in: Guilty and never proven innocent – every male train rider's nightmare in Japan See in context

Is this really happening in Japan in the year 2013 or is this the year 1213. Are regular day to day people this confused? Or are they being intimidated, where is common sense, WHAT???, 7 to 10 days in JAILl before a hearing ?? or am I reading this article the wrong way? I do not live in a city with the population pressures like NY or HongKong, Tokyo Rio etc. But you want to know my opinion? This crapola in Japan is nothing but extortion, a set-up and organized crime! please help me here I cannot believe this situation at all!

Posted in: High hopes for Japan's wine in the old world See in context

@ Nessie Whole Area is the Okanagan Valley a long (N to S, 160 miles) and narrow valley (3 to 10 miles wide) Between the west coast mountains and the Rockey Mountains, semi desert climate (rain shadow) with on average less than 12 inches of rain I do not disagree with your opinion about the right of people to sell their properties and become wealthy I just wonder where in the future food is going to be grown. With today's tech we can built in areas not suitable for farming but fine for building on IMHO.

Posted in: Antarctic summer ice melting 10 times faster: study See in context

I see ice cores as tree rings, they are valuable methods to see history. But to take 1 (one) ice core out of the size of the antarctic ice cap and base a whole new theory on that evidence is especially bad science and is alarming! Why? Because again governments (and scientists?) all over will run around like chickens with their heads cut of yelling "the sky is falling" and suck up more of your tax dollars to fund useless studies that have already been proven wrong. The world is not warming (and has not been for at least the last 15 years) and CO2 has hardly any effect on climate as evidence from the last 10-15,000 years have shown. If you have an OPEN mind please check out web sites called ICECAP or WUWT and just listen and read their evidence with an open mind to the reasoning. ( it will take a while there are many links to hard core papers and evidence) Thanks, LYA

@ nessie, here in Canada the same problem with labor cost and add to that prime grape growing land is extremely expensive. The whole area is "retirement " heaven for a lot of people and land that was used for generations as farms are now apartment buildings. There is also a lack of continuation and tradition to keep the land as farm land a lot of the young generation just develop the land and make a lot of money the "easy" way

Posted in: High hopes for Japan's wine in the old world See in context

Studied with a lady winemaker and grape grower, in 2006 in Canada, a few years later she returned here and brought back some wine. Made from Koshu (LORIENT Winery) grapes it was delightful. She explained to us here how difficult growing grapes is in Japan due to rain etc. there are a lot of differences between the two regions we grow grapes in a semi-desert climate. (hi Toshi !!! I hope you read this, Tobias)

Posted in: Huge wind farm turbine snaps near Kyoto See in context

I wonder who paid for the turbine in the first place . North America they are subsidized by massive government (tax payer) loans and rarely if ever in their lifespan return the investment. In Ontario Canada they are finding because of the location and the less than 30 % active return, the grid system cost and now human and animal health issues there needs to be way more effort made to find out if they are worth it.

Posted in: Woman confesses to killing 25-year-old mentally disabled son See in context

My wife and I are 60, have looked after our son (paranoid/schizophrenic) for 20 years The government claims that him being over 18 years old he is an adult and has to fend for himself as far as any government medical aid is concerned we are allowed no input and have begged for years!. The whole situation is bizarre We can understand this women's action all to well and to be brutally frank she probably did him a favor!! We have seen our son's anger , anxiety, disbelieve and depression and many other emotions for way, way to many times ( imagine being told by some bureaucrat you should not have a girl friend or be a sport team member or what ever).This is incredibly hard to explain it only can be experienced and that we do not wish on anybody ever.

issa1 I somewhat agree with your statement I just think that most nations were not ready for immigrants that were not going to assimilate, To me the fact is that all over the world immigration and the movement of people today is radically different from 60 years ago. Then movement then was mostly Caucasian and Christian between Europe and the "New World" with with most of those people with just about the same basic foundations. Today immigrants are coming from all over the planet in all directions to all different countries with many different religious, social and cultural backgrounds and the frictions that all of that brings. Many people have no clue where and how other cultures live so frictions are becoming more and more to the forefront and sadly the divisions are even getting stronger because few people have the time to sit and talk sense.

And what I meant by my last sentence is that in our little back and forth you have had to back track a number of times.

So tell me if. I was across from the table with you in a negotiation and the info you supply me with the first and second time we "talked" you have had to withdraw the next time we met. Where does the trust go after a few sessions I would not believe a word you said! And totally of topic is in your culture lying not an art valued as the top of success? (not that it isn't anywhere else on this planet :).)

Last time I answer. Can you tell me what is the difference between export competition and two way trade. They are both the same thing just semantically different because neither side initially is going to compromise!!!. As well my personal opinion is that you spend way to much time with graphs and stats and not reality. Do get out of the library and walk around , preferably Amsterdam, New York. Montevideo, Capetown or Moscow, life on the streets and the results you will notice dictate trade world wide, Just ask WallMart or McDonald's or any successful world wide venture they always HAVE to adapt to the culture they "invade" to BE successful that has to be a given!!. My observation also looks back at the Japanese culture, the minute anyone from anywhere is critical of the Japanese they become defensive. When will they open up to constructive dialogue?. (just look at our little back and forth)

@lucabrasi: As an immigrant to Canada myself I have always been curious as to where people are from, when I came to Canada many years ago it was a country of many different nationalities (even more so now) and to me it was never a question of race, religion or any such thing to me then and even now I feel no problem in asking any body may they be a cab driver a butcher or a professor as to where they are from to me it just opens avenues of communication. As in ; " hey man you are from Johannesburg or Dheli or Tokyo? wow tell me about those places I am from Delft. It feeds my curiosity and educates me.

@nathaw I was just going to say, anyway unemployment in Canada is very stable and not high, I understand there is not a large trade system in place between Canada and the Japanese but that is to me largely the fault of the Japanese Government. The opportunities to Canadian resources such as lumber coal, natural gas,oil and other resources Japan needs badly have been there but the Government in Japan is reluctant (protective) in allowing access.So if you need to change things between these two countries start in Japan and change the attitude of the people and therefore the government of Japan .

@Konsta just to add to that statement : Remember where their current "Dear Leader" went to school? for those that do not know ; an exclusive school in Switzerland with excursions to London, Paris, Madrid etc. etc. I guess just part of the education.

@hoserfellar, The EU economy of 18 trill is integrated into the global market yes, but it is mostly internal and @Nathaw I am not sure what Canada you are looking at. The Canuck buck has been on par with the US $ for at least 36 months. And the last time I took a cab in Vancouver and Victoria BC there were not many MBA's driving most of them are from the Indian or Pakistani areas, in Toronto they are from other countries. But then what the heck who cares about disinformation?
