Little rain & wind in Shizuoka yesterday evening. Bit heavier later in Nagoya & somewhat heavier this morning, but nothing to cancel schools back home. Hope it doesn’t get worse. Likely last time Japan plays host to a Wold Cup.

With the Earth population still escalating out of control, people the world over should be commended for unselfishly deciding to forego procreation. Some say climate change brought about by global warming is the greatest danger we face today. Greater populations consume more resource energy, further contributing to global warming. Population, therefore, is a greater concern than global warming. I once had the opportunity to pose the question of population as it relates to global warming to Climate Reality founder & chairman, Al Gore. His simple answer was education of women. Mr. Nikai here is proof positive of Japan's systematic attempts at dumbing down society.

Does Abe think making Japanese people any more patriotic than they already are will have them cheering a possible recovery of the national economy at their personal expense?

Posted in: Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has stated his government’s goal of boosting the ratio of women in senior positions in companies in Japan to 30% by 2020. Do you think it is a good idea to set numerical targ See in context

Tangible figures make for a good target in a society where young minds are never really conditioned to think.

You'd otherwise know that a 30% target in 5 years' time is aiming far too low!
