Posted in: Trudeau: Police video of aboriginal chief arrest shocking See in context

They used to teach police to expect video recordings of themselves making arrests. Somehow that message is making them think that is a good thing to be seen going bad.

Posted in: Facebook fires employee who protested inaction on Trump posts See in context

Best to avoid politics at the office. If I had that job at Facebook I would have my resume out to every other tech company possible, though.

Posted in: Trump says chokeholds by police should generally 'be ended' See in context

“I think the concept of chokeholds sounds so innocent, so perfect." A random insect is inhabiting that president's speech center.

She turned pro-Putin in 2018 and posted a blog about it. Read it and decide for yourself what motivates her. https://web.archive.org/web/20190404043945/https://medium.com/@shewrites94/why-a-liberal-democrat-supports-vladimir-putin-f54ca2a3a405

Posted in: Elton John objects to 'Rocketman' scene deletions in Russia See in context

Assuming Elton John is okay with the scenes, then there is no reason to censor it. I ill pass on the movie, myself. National Geographic is reporting Leonardo da Vinci was homosexual. Still a genius.

Posted in: 91-year-old man's death at care home goes unnoticed for over 10 days See in context

Here, when you go into an assisted living facility it is then end of your wealth, if you had any. You are billed for everything until you have nothing left to your name. Many would opt out if given the choice.

I wish more people would accept responsibility. Did either of them actually have hand in this? Justice?

Posted in: Trump calls for boycott until Apple unlocks shooter's phone See in context

Apple will lose millions in sales after they do it. And they will do it. Sure, the FBI will pay them whatever millions $ it costs to devolpe a work-around, and then Apple will need to build a replacement OS for everyone else using the hacked product. ...Until FBI demands a hack for the next one... and then It becomes a spiral down for Apple sales soon...

Posted in: Russia building new military bases on islands claimed by Japan See in context

"Pooty man," as he was called by G W Bush, is wildly popular. So was G W Bush. So were other infamous government officals with a clearance.

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.
