It’s amazing that he’s playing at all. The man spent every day after getting out of bed for a month doing PT and exercises 7 days a week. Salarymen aren’t nothing compared to the determination he’s showed.

And never whined about it.

Posted in: BOJ under pressure as inflation tops 2% See in context

For heavens sake, the BOJ has been doing everything possible to reach a target inflation of 2% for a decade.

The global financial system, including the BOJ and the FED and bankers, are nothing but charlatans and con men.

How about some photos of Japanese protesting the continuous release of tritium from S Korean nuclear reactors?

S Korea releases a higher concentration than the planned release from Fukushima.

S Korean government and nuclear industry business people were sentenced to hundreds of years in prison for bribery and supply of cheap counterfeit parts used in reactors, including the ones sold to the Middle East.

The hypocrisy is staggering.

Much of the underground water available in the Southwest USA is unusable because it is too brackish.

And there are high levels of arsenic. Most comes from the Colorado river, which is far below normal from so little snow pack the past few years. It really is a critical problem being faced in AZ and NV and the state water people don’t have a solution.

Power is not the most critical problem. Southwestern US states can get other sources of power.

The problem is water. Some communities in Arizona are about to have their water cut off the end of the year with no other water sources available.

Million dollar houses with no water. People have spent $80,000 on drilling and found no underground water to tap.

Other cities have been supplying their water, but cities don’t have the water to share and are scrambling to supply their own residents with water.

Thousands of new houses being built and no one knows if they’ll have water. The developers don’t care.

Don't tell women what to do with their bodies. It's none of your business. At all.

Babies aren’t born from immaculate conception and it is the business of both parents.

The formula industry is out of control in the US, thanks to American women funding it who are able, but unwilling to breastfeed. One of the lowest rates in the world, yet everyone knows it’s best for babies.

Are you more concerned about the “inconvenience” to mothers, or more concerned about the babies?

Most countries don’t even have a formula industry and it’s not an option. Some hospitals outside the US ban formula.

Oh, and don’t tell people to shut up.

Posted in: Moms seeking baby formula tire of those who say, just breastfeed See in context

Less than 5% of women in the US are unable to breastfeed, or have babies intolerant to their milk.

Look it up.

If it doesn’t suit your lifestyle or you just don’t want to isn’t an excuse. Why not breastfeed your baby and let others who can’t buy formula, instead of being a selfish sociopath?

It’s a disgrace.

It makes you wonder what else is going on in medical schools that are underhanded.

Actually, the people who don't know what they're talking about are the ones who take their own anecdotal story and apply across the entire civilization.

The overwhelming majority of mothers can breast feed.

Posted in: U.S. gov't to fly in baby formula on military contracted planes See in context

Apparently people have forgotten that females can breast feed their babies.

Females are designed for it, and their milk offers protection to the baby for short and long term illnesses and diseases. Breast fed babies have lower instances of obesity, diabetes, asthma and sudden infant death (SID).

It also helps the mother reduce weight after her pregnancy.

There has never been a study of tritium consumption on humans to ever show even the possibility of an effect.

do some research

The diluted level to be released will be lower than the water coming out of your faucet.

Tritium is cleared from the body of fish in two days. Two weeks for humans.

Japanese culture is always “loose” in clarity.

Well, except for the NHK collectors.

I always get a laugh from Japanese when saying that Japanese is not a difficult language, but Japanese people are difficult. :)

They are more interested in trade and money.

Agree. Why would you attack your customers?

That’s the giant gap between people and politicians. People just want to live their lives, but politicians want to spin up ethnocentrism and “patriotism” by creating conflict.

Politicians think they need to do something about everything, but people and societies would be better off with them doing nothing.

Terrible headline. The US does not "rule" Okinawa. US bases are still there, but they do not make the decisions for the islands government with exception to the presence of the base

The headline is fine. It’s about the end of US rule 50 years ago.

I watch Turner Classic Movies (TCM) all the time. You get to see the original story lines and movies that new movies copy.

The quality of a new movie is inversely proportional to the number of helicopters and car chases.

As a fashion statement?
