Posted in: Should Japan have its own nuclear weapons as a deterrent against security threats or should it rely on the U.S. nuclear umbrella? See in context

We should try to prevent war. The next World War will be the last one as the human species will become extinct in a huge cloud of fire and radiation and the nuclear winter that follows.

If they can get this to work (i.e., if companies really cooperate), Japanese might start getting married again and having kids.

Posted in: Pence tells Japan U.S. wants results on trade deal See in context

It is easy. Make stuff that the Japanese want to buy, and the trade deficit will go away. And stop complaining about so-called "non-tariff" barriers. Learn your way around the market, like the Europeans and everyone else.

Posted in: Should airlines be allowed to overbook on flights (selling more seats than available to account for the likelihood of no-shows)? See in context

Presumably a no-show has paid, so they are not loosing any money. Just don't refund any money.

Posted in: Ethics textbook change causes widespread constroversy See in context

When I went through high school in the mid-90s, teachers were very leftist. They would use "supplementary materials" to introduce what was missing from the textbooks, including gory photographs that I remember to this day. Are teachers still like that?

Posted in: Japan eyes putting TPP into force without U.S. See in context

OK, so people here don't like China. Then make the TPP without China and then make a unilateral trade agreement between the TPP countries and China. A market of 1.3 billion. And this could induce China to stop bullying its neighbors.

40% of young people don't have full time jobs, and lots are wondering about the long term prospects for their jobs. I doubt they will be interested or have the extra income to invest.

No, it was because Ivanka cried when she saw pictures of dead babies (according to brother Eric).

Only "posthumous abdication" is currently allowed? So theoretically, they could also deny abdication after he dies if the law was written that way?

Posted in: Toshiba's survival in doubt after reporting unaudited results See in context

Whatever the upper management failures, the main thing is that there are companies lined up to buy Toshiba's assets because there is a lot of innovation at the micro-level (high end chips, materials etc.) you don't hear about. Also, remember that the Fukushima #1 was build by General Electric, and #2, #3, and #4 were built by Toshiba and Hitachi based on the GE plans. They requested GE to change the plan and put emergency power above ground away from the ocean, but GE refused for "safety reasons".
