Posted in: Three-decade study confirms saturated fats are bad for health See in context


The fact that you lump unsaturated fats all into the same category shows that you know nothing about nutrition. Your body needs HEALTHY fats to function, things that come from almonds, salmon, flaxseed/olive oil, etc.

You sound like a needy vegan who is too high and mighty to eat anything animal-based. The trick is moderation and common sense, which tells you that eating ten cookies every day probably isn't the best choice even if they're "gluten-free" and "sugar-free".

Time for the bows - oh wait this is America, so it won't work. Send these people to jail and see how much their bowing does there.

Are you serious ? You think it's safe to live near a known bear-infested forest just because the bears were there first? In your line of thinking, we should all just kill ourselves because the animals were here first.

Any time you put an animal's life and well-being above a human's, you're making a big mistake. Only in first world countries do we have the luxury of complaining about animal cruelty and preservation.

Look at evolution and tell me I'm wrong.

We all advocate animal preservation until something like this happens. Dangerous animals should be put down, especially if they're anywhere near human civilization. Everyone says that this would be cruel, but when you're child gets snatched away from you by a wild animal and you're helpless to stop it, maybe then you'll change your peaches and roses mentality towards the world.

Horrible tragedy, but preventable.

Can't compete internationally, especially with the branding and talent of companies like Apple, Google, etc.

The problem is their way of thinking - ok for the 90s, not nearly competitive enough for today's world. It's funny because they reject every outside influence on their company, yet cannot compete globally anymore.

Time for another Sharp !

I personally don't think origin should matter as long as you have a quality product or suite of products, but Asia has the whole "origin" problem. Even if you have an amazing product, people will tend to choose the homegrown and domestic one, even if it's inferior.

Posted in: Fitch cuts outlook on Japan over sales tax delay See in context

tbh only Moody's and S&P ratings changes matter. Fitch is generally considered 2nd to both the aforementioned agencies, at least with regards to ratings.

Don't hate, markets don't care what you think about Fitch.

Posted in: Scientists trick body's viral response to combat cancer See in context

For people not familiar with cancer trials, drugs typically take 5-10 years to reach the public.

Looks like they're barely in phase I trials - typically 1 out of every 200 new drugs reach the end of phase III/get submitted to FDA.

Long story short, shouldn't hold your breath.

Posted in: Electing Trump would be 'historic mistake,' Clinton declares See in context

Lol at the Clinton and Trump bashers - I'd pick either of them over ANY of the JT posters here. No one here is as successful or has the support group of either candidate, so there's really no point in arguing politics and getting riled up when someone disagrees with you.

Posted in: Electing Trump would be 'historic mistake,' Clinton declares See in context

I love everyone who bashes on Hilary, when the alternative is Trump.

In reality, no ones vote matters. Think about it - do you really think your vote matters? If you downvote this post, then you're just salty that I'm right. Come on everyone, no matter how much we argue on this site, nothing will matter and the higher ups will decide between Trump or Hilary.

The public doesn't matter - the people behind the curtains pull the strings, and they'll ultimately decide who becomes president whether your insignificant vote matters or not.

Posted in: Suzuki HQ raided over fuel-testing scandal See in context

I'm getting really tired of these Japanese companies claiming ignorance when in reality if you had ANY checks in place, these discrepancies would be caught immediately.

The Japanese are slowly becoming the backwards and lying standard for the world. They continually think that bowing and apologizing will save their company, when in reality the international community would rather see their company go bankrupt than go through another "sincere" apology. What a load of junk.

It just begs the question - how far does this systemic corruption spread?

Posted in: Clinton calls Donald Trump a 'fraud' See in context

Ok, pick either Trump or Hillary, because those are going to be the two candidates no matter what your insignificant opinion may be. Guess what - your vote DOESN'T matter, so discussing this is a moot point.

If you really think picking Trump is the better option because Hilary lied like EVERYONE does, then you really need to re-evaluate the term "lesser of two evils".

Posted in: Tokyo governor apologises again for spending on luxury hotels, pajamas See in context

It sucks because all that will happen is that he'll either step down and re-emerge in a different post, or just get reprimanded.

You really have to blame the meek Japanese culture for this - if this scandal happened anywhere else, there'd be criminal charges and there is no way the public will let it go. But it's Japan, where corruption replaces corruption and nothing ever changes.

A quick bow and "sincere" apology, and all flaws are forgiven.

Posted in: Solar business profitable even at 20 yen/kWh See in context

lol @5SpeedRacer5 talking about solar like it's going to change your household. Only in Japan do you have to squeeze out efficiency over a 20 year period because salaries are so depressed and no one is making as much as their peers in other developed countries.

Without subsidizing solar panels and the costs associated with it, it's inefficient at best. Your time value of money will completely destroy whatever "savings" you get from a solar panel over several years.

Posted in: Canada announces ban on transgender discrimination See in context

I like how if transgender people are uncomfortable about using one bathroom they can go to the other one, but a heterosexual person would get arrested.

The point I'm trying to make is that we are being more tolerant of one group over another, which doesn't really play into equality.
