Posted in: Japan reports 3rd cruise ship passenger death; 57 more infected See in context

I'm curious as to why no one is talking about the mortality rate. Currently in Japan it's 4 deaths of 838 confirmed cases = 0.48%. CDC states Spanish flu was greater than 2.5%.

At least 3 of these deaths were people in their 80s, apparently 2 of them went on the cruise already in ill health, knowing it's likely to be their last holiday together.

Who cares if the infection rate is very high - people will miss work, economies will suffer a little bit. Mortality rate is normal for this outbreak (it's no worse than the common cold )- if you judge by the stats presented here (yes, all government lie, all the time - but I'd suggest Japan govt lies less than some other countries)

I always assumed the Japanese ppl appeared next to the western stars because they had a part in the Japanese dubbing of that film.

never forget that the IMF is a corporation and like all corporations it psychopathically seeks profit. Since it profits from the economies of almost all countries of the world of course it's interested in promoting any raising of taxes.

That probably is where most tax dollar actually go - paying back loans to the IMF

there should be other talent on offer.

hee hee - talent has nothing to do with it. Being president is all to do with how much billion$ govt contracts you can assign to your business associates, how many tax breaks or beneficial laws you can create for your lobbyist buddies, and ultimately play the part that the banking cartels assign.

None of these reports ever go into details on how exactly they plan to achieve these cuts. Also, None of these reports ever go into detail of why they won't stop legally/accidentally leaking mercury, hexane, 4-methylcyclohexanemethanol (leaked from a “clean coal” process), Aniline etc. - or even why some of these and many other poisons end up in our food, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics....

Posted in: IMF cuts Japan growth forecast; issues warning over Abenomics See in context

Never forget that every Central bank is a privately run company - they are not owned or run by any govt. Govt are beholden to them as they produce the money the govts need to run their country. Every govt that suffers a central bank can never ever pay back the debt htey borrow from the central banks.

Never forget that the IMF is the "Central Bank of Central Banks" Again it is it a privately run company with no govt ties. It has laws unto itself. One of the most evil entities on the planet and the only reason it bothers with 99.9% of the population on earth is to rip out the tax dollars and ensure they flow to the other 0.1%

It's the biggest money laundering process on the planet

And let the flood of climate change denial begin.

Yeaaahh.... there's really not many people on the planet that actually deny climate change. You're falling for the marketing trick when they swapped out the words "global warming"

What that "denial" is about is that rate at which IPCC claim it is changing and which direction it is changing - and the amount of influence humans can have on it.

AhollMar. 26, 2014 - 10:39AM JST

to tax it seems outrageous way of making money

Exactly. They are basically taxing the production of carbon dioxide.

When a business have increasing cost inputs it raises prices on it's output. Thus the consumer pays for this tax increase, not the business. The business is still producing the same amount of CO2 - status quo....

SO what it really boils down to is that humans are being taxed for breathing out carbon dioxide.

Posted in: E-cigarettes: fresh air or smoke and mirrors? See in context

Critics believe e-cigs may serve as a tobacco gateway

No one will ever get on to normal cigarettes after vaping because they taste like cigarettes - no one actually likes that taste - especially after you've been smoking something like cherry, caramel or chocolate banana.

Whether vaping is cheaper than cigarettes is up to how much is spent on equipment and liquids and how often one vapes

Except in Australia where we get price gouged for everything because of 'isolated location logistics costs' and huge gubbmint excises. Here if you swap cigarettes for vaping you will be spending at the most 1/10 to 1/4 per year on vaping even if you tinker with your gear.

Vaping does not come without risk and known harms.

True enough, but liquid has far less chemicals and industrial poisons than normal cigs, so it's very likely the health risks are far far less. Reducing risk in one area of your life might help reduce it in other areas such as getting off the 'Standard American Diet' of high carbs, sugar and artificial ingredients.
