Posted in: Learning the abacus helps improve memory and the ability to think logically because the prefrontal area of the brain is used when mental arithmetic is performed. See in context

The soroban, once a staple of childhood education along with reading and writing, is making a comeback with more children attending soroban schools and more people taking abacus certification tests.

Not because it has any real life use but because they actually believe it is a Japanese invention.

Noby is designed to simulate the behavior and development of a 9-month-old infant in an effort to better understand how humans grow up.

Why not study humans then rather than build a robot like humans to study humans? This story doesn't make any sense.

Posted in: Japan bribed small nations with cash, call girls to get whaling vote: Sunday Times See in context

Actually now that I think about it, they should have used that money to bribe some of the teams that are going to beat them badly in the world cup. It would have been money well spent because they will continue to hunt whales until the USA tells them not to.

Posted in: Iran marks anniversary of failed U.S. hostage rescue attempt See in context

the "museum" will display American aircraft built in the 70s, which is what Iran's air force is still using.

Unless you've been to the museim yourself, I'd say you wouldn't know. Propaganda is on both sides and more so on the side that has all the TV and internet.
