Posted in: Plant with troubled past at center of Takata air bag probe See in context

My vehicle is salvaged. The airbags were blasted long before I bought it. The man who sold the thing warned me how dangerous the airbags would be to reinstall. I did not choose to have them.

Posted in: Ferguson on edge ahead of grand jury decision See in context

Federal grand juries are people taken from lists such as propery ownership or registration. They sit for about a year, and a prosecutor tells them “you are going to want to hear this,” or “you are not interested in this one.” It legitimizes the legal process of bringing federal charges, which are often more severe at the penalty phase – federal prison vs state penitentiary. This case was not a federal grand jury, however the purpose is similar. In this case, the jury is not sitting for a full year hearing stuff they will never remember again. It is one case, and one grand jury, whose purpose is to indict, not convict. That will be a different jury, when it probably will result in a manslaughter conviction.

Posted in: Obama immigration plan good, not great for economy See in context

Russian politicians also point to illegal immigration as a problem that must be dealt with severly. They actually do have the second highest number of illegal immigrants, behind the USA. Every country has some. North Korea is always sending Americans back…

The difference in measurement is quite a lot. Exponentially, a 6.2 and 6.8?

Posted in: Japan sees modern Atlantis spiral deep into ocean See in context

There is much to learn from the ocean. Japan is an exciting partner in this investment. Sky is cool, but so overdone since George Bush canceled the space shuttle program. I am still hoping to see fusion energy in my lifetime.

Posted in: Okinawa vote a blow to Japan-U.S. ties, say analysts See in context

I would like to see Okinawa. Japan is a big country. I will level with you. I fly to Mongolia as often as I can, via Korea. I fly over Japan every trip. After 12 hours in the air, the seconds over Japan are not representative of the size and importance of those islands. 40 minutes later, we touch down on Incheon airport island. Five more hours in the air, and I am in Ulan Bator city.

Posted in: How do you feel when you speak fluent or reasonably good Japanese to a Japanese person and they insist on answering you in English? See in context

I would very much love it. Kamsahamnida. This is common in tourist countries. You try to speak the language, as best you can, and the local people respect you more for your courtesy. Jimmy Carter was Prez when I was in West Germany. It worked well enough then and there.

Posted in: MIT finger device reads to the blind in real time See in context

I am hopeful. My brother was a childhood diabetic. That is another culture. Yet, he was healthy enough to love to learn, reading and writing. He also had a strange way of playing physical games for endless hours. Now he is all but blind, especially at night. If this is something that would let him read newspapers and the like, it is a miracle.

Posted in: Indonesian boat skipper jailed over deaths of Japanese divers See in context

In the Bahamas, the boat captain made us get out when he was ready to go. He just had to say "lemon shark," and I was pulling my friends out for him. That was a snorkel dive. If we were using air tanks, the dives would have had a shorter time limit.

“Who is this?” is the way I always answer my phone. The caller says, “Is Jim there?” I say, “do not call this number again,” and report it to the Do Not Call Registry. They are supposed to be fined $10,000 for making the next call.

Bird migration has happend long before government intervention. Is this really the first time a diesease was spread on wings? I agree with the comment "grilling over charcoal." What a waste.

Chinese military can sell it as an internal matter, granting them full authority. The average Chinese citizen could care less about military expansion.
