Posted in: Japan's August consumer inflation eases to two-year low See in context

If you want more inflation then put money in peoples pockets. Supply vs demand !

don't be surprised if deflation arises in near future especially raising sales taxes that will discourage purchases. https://youtu.be/h5-L2hoGkIc?t=3

Posted in: Japan to eliminate tariffs on U.S. wine in trade deal: Nikkei See in context

USA has greatly encouraged global trade with No or very low tariffs while there is little reciprocation globally. This has been the engine of China's miracle growth. US low on saving but big on buying products. Now US seeks some ability to sell in demand products to these nations. If you think Japan has given equal share then look around as it's so rare to see a US made auto but in USA over 25% autos are Japanese cars. And YES they are the most reliable cars in the world but USA makes some good ones too.

Posted in: Trump suggested nuking hurricanes: report See in context

Back in the 50s and 60s they wanted to Nuke everything and tried to also. They lit off nukes high atmosphere just to see how it might effect Magnetosphere. They also planned on building a new Panama canal by Nuking across the continent. Really ! look this up SCIENTISTS !!! Well I think this is why cancel so prevalent today. and those Nuclear power plants ? they cost more to build than they will ever save in electric production . But behind scenes they get funded from taxpayers and usually have cost overruns 20-50x. The money goes into pockets just like stadium buildings

Posted in: Starbucks vs two popular Japanese coffee shops: Which gives best value? See in context

Starbucks has gone to become factory food and drink style and quality. Coffee and step above 7/11 but nor worth the price. IMHO a French press or glass vacuum type brewer at home is cheapest and best flavor. On the street select best social and freshest pastries.

Posted in: King coal rules for power utilities in Japan See in context

The cleanest and cheapest electricity is HYDROELECTRIC . Nicolai Tesla and Westinghouse Co, built the first hydroelectric plant over 100 years ago at Niagara Falls on the Canada USA border by Buffalo NY. These plants are still there making cleanest cheapest power today. USA pays an average of .12 KWhr and Sweden also did the smart move using Hydroelectric https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/electricity-rates-around-the-world.html

Posted in: Crackdown on immigrant families facing deportation in U.S. to start Sunday See in context

All emigrants are welcome in USA as so many come in every year, But you have to come in legally as my wife did and it takes 6mo to a year. It's ez and you can do it yourself online. Anyone can come in a educational visa or tourist visa also. Many stay and lead productive lives and none are looking for these people starting Sunday. They are actively seeking criminal elements and those who are danger to society or illegally collecting govt programs.

Posted in: King coal rules for power utilities in Japan See in context

Until the Hydrogen economy blooms the best cleanest you can use is Natural gas. It burns in the same plants you burn coal in and USA has plenty to sell :) I'm sure Trump will get Japan a special deal and low price. USA lowered CO2 by 1/3 switching.

the Heanous part of coal is the fly ash that contains mercury that lands in the sea and eaten by microorganisms...that get eaten by small fishes ...that get eaten by larger fish and concentrated in that fish....that gets eaten by Tuna and Albacore that gets big dose of Mercury and why your fish full of large amounts of Mercury . BTW radioactive isotopes can also concentrate this way in biological paths

Posted in: U.S.-China trade war sparks worries about rare earth minerals See in context

America soes not use rare earth metals much. But they are used to manufacture products in China sent to USA. There are productive mines for Rare Earth metals in USA but were closed due to environmental concerns.

Historically when America cannot find a reserve needed the ingenious engineers find a better and cheaper replacement . Necessity is the mother of invention.

Brian Wilson been fighting anxiety demon most his life. An interesting story so look it up. He was a shut in for many years and an unethical doctor pushed constant drugs on him. Along with great crative talent comes the ability to creat your own fears. Get well and follow your passions as hopefully you don't need the touring money by now.

Posted in: Online symptom checker often wrong on eye problems See in context

Hypochondriacs have it EZ today :) My dad was what I jokingly called the healthiest hypochondriac in the world. Everytime he had symptoms he would read medical books and what he might have. Many times he went to doctors. Luckily he went to top docs cause many would recomend uneeded treatments and surgery that just might hurt him more than help.
