Robots claim another job from humans. Just face it, a vast majority of jobs are repetitive and require little intelligence, and they are exactly what AI/Robots excel in. Its the future of the world. And more so in Japan due to the shrinking population.

"That's some joining up the dots there.

How did HRC invade Crimea and shoot down the MH-17 plane again?"

Her entire tenure as the SoS revolved around a chain reaction of stoking up chaos in the mid east, east Europe, and Asia and the forthcoming refugee crisis.

Corning the biggest nuclear power, the only thing you expect next is a punch on your own face. The Russia learned the lesson in the Cuban crisis, now its America’s turn.

Consider we lucky Putin just got Crimea instead of going nuclear.

Posted in: Japan, EU sign massive trade deal to eliminate nearly all tariffs See in context

As always, Japan gets good deals. And it also serves as a good leverage in the coming talks with the USA. 

Good for EU as well, its equivalent to adding a member state that is larger than Germany.

Posted in: Croatia beats England 2-1 to reach World Cup final for 1st time See in context

Neither team deserved to be in this place tbh, but Croatia has a bit more flair and skills with players like Modric. so its no surprise. Should be an easy final for France as Croatia had 3 120-min matches in a row.

"Really? I would have thought at 2-0 up, Japan would have just dribbled the ball back and forth, you know, like against Poland."

Poland had no will go through, it was a match of formality. Belgium on the otherhand wouldn't have let you passing around uncontested, being a stronger team aside.

Posted in: Belgium beats Japan 3-2 in injury time to reach World Cup quarterfinals See in context

Sitting back immediately after the lead was probably not a good idea, they've have exposed themselves to Felleni and Lukaku's pounding constantly. They did well to withstand the Belgium onslaught, until the last few minutes, they changed their mind and start pressing forward, wierd

Also, my god, their goal keeper freaking sucks. seriously, you are not going anywhere with a panicked deer like him standing on the goal line.

The tactics in the final moments were questionable, they were seconds away to extra time. But Belgium is just a better team overall. Good game!

Alexandre T. IshiiToday  09:28 am JST

The R&D cost of those radar systems would be astronomical, and even if Japan could afford it, it wouldnt be available anytime soon. Japan needs the capability now. Also, the intercept vehicle (SM-3Blk2) is being jointly developed by the two countries.

Posted in: Japan booed as it advances on yellow cards despite losing to Poland 1-0 See in context

Its not cowardist and defeatist, its just a game based on a number of facts on the ground: the chance of Japan scoring a goal in last 10 mins was much lower than that of conceding OR losing the advantage in fair play (yeah bit ironic but its fifa's rule) Meanwhile, Japan knew Colombia would try their hardest win hence a draw was the safest bet.

Its a crazy gamble by rotating out 6 player in the starting lineup, but in the end it paid off. A 'win' is a win. Now, onto the knockoff stage!
