I predict the DPRK will launch the rocket flawlessly. It will lift off perfectly from the pad, go straight up into the sky and fall directly back on the site about an hour later.

"...and Fortune magazine had us as the most admired airline in the world..."
I am reading the article in Fortune Magazine and it says United is the most admired airline in the world. Delta is #4.

Can anyone answer a question about this type of scam? The elderly are asked to transfer money out of their accounts. Can't the receiving bank accounts be traced? Considering the amount of information required to open an account, it should provide some leads even it is closed and drained.

Eight months after the earthquake and tsunami, I as a permanent foreign resident of Japan, take off my hat and give a deep bow of respect to the workers who steadfastly remain at work at the Fukushima reactors.

Being elected as a prime minister in Japan is like being asked to conduct an orchestra where no one reads music, no one has no clue why they are holding an instrument and no one can stay awake. And each of the orchestra is trying to kill the other half.

There is something wrong with this system of letting the politicians select the PM. None of these guys could organize a recent rock fight on their own. The people ought to elect their leader for a set term. (Smack!) Sorry, I just got smacking back into reality. This is Japan.

I have got to believe the people living in shelters near Fukushima want to scream, "No more Ganbaro Tohoku!" messages and signs. They don't need more visiting governmental officials and celebrities. What they need is clean homes to live in, assurances of employment and answers to how their hometowns will be rebuilt.
Enough of the goodwill. Let's get on with the restoration. Japan is one country and the government has an obligation to put resources where they are most needed. And now!

Another day, another fashion award. By sometime next week, everyone in Japan will have won an award. I guess the trophy business must be going strong these days.
Dan Rather once said, "News is something someone doesn't want you to know. Everything else is marketing".

For example, if you’re flying to South Korea, why take two or three hours to get out to Narita for a two-hour flight when you can get to Haneda in 15 minutes?<
If we want to make a fair comparison, from central Tokyo Haneda would be 15 minutes by train and Narita would one hour by train.
