Sapporo would also help pay for organizing events now taking place in the city.

Sapporo shouldn't be paying a penny while the IOC is awash in cashola

Good for her, reflects years of dedication and merit. Something to consider for such a male-biased society is to just treat women like people. This will help

Sorry lawyers, those "losses" are a lie as you can't claim 100% sales. People uses piracy when they're cheap or broke. They may not have the actual means to pay. Also most manga is not sold outside Japan, so you can't claim piracy when you don't even sell it. They should put up their own portals and make money even if they did they wouldn't be able to sell at the stand price

Posted in: Self-confessed Chinese spy spills secrets in Australia See in context

GW agreed. Even during the Beijing 2008 Olympics it was expected China would change. They've done nothing of the kind. I think it's reasonable to withdrawal support until such time change occurs. With automation and 3D printing ever increasing, China itself may be reaching its own high water mark or will eventually and will be stuck with literally millions of people without the ability to change. I hope for a Free China and maybe that happens with a Free HK. Have chicken MPPs though I find really sad.

We need the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and everyone else in the world in their constitutions and charters not to all be marked by an asterisk, *by permission of China

China is already involved in influencing universities. In Canada a UofT election was marred by a Tibetan student who ran and won as a student president only to be harassed by Chinese students to the point of involving police. I think it was in Manitoba that a Chinese ebola researcher was suddenly dropped due to a RCMP investigation. If it wasn't for the court system being independent of Canadian politics I wonder if the government would have acquiesced to Beijing on the Huawei affair? Given their lack of action on banning their network equipment, a decision that was supposed to happen a year before the recent election but was prevaricated and still unresolved.

At least Australia is facing this now and looking like it will fight back regardless of Morrison not because of him. I hope they grant that guy asylum. When you love a country you want to protect it. Confirmation is vital

Posted in: A crash course in Japan’s blood type theory See in context

Japanese military from 1927 investigated blood types to find perfect soldiers but thankfully Japanese dropped the whole idea after the war. It was only from the 1970's that this was revived again by a journalist for what amounts to scientific racism. Sad that a fad from the 1900's continues. It has no scientific basis and should be abandoned again to stop discrimination.

going to need those huge carbon dioxide capture fans that could also filter out the soot. Kinda like huge 15 storey / 30m fume hoods

For such low emissions, Australia is going to take the brunt of the world's results .... by doing nothing.

Alrightie then. Enjoy the BBQ

Or y'know, you could fight back

Unfortunately with the way the government has released information about the crisis there's not a lot of trust.

The reality is that the people of Fukushima need financial support for all their losses and the prefecture closed off for 100 years. It would be the only way to both deal with the radioactive storage problem (the prefecture becomes the storage) and give construction the space it needs to combat further leaking, but also deal with the bioaccumulation effects of any food. Especially to kids and kid cancer rates.  

Reality cannot be avoided and don't work against political whims

I was waiting for a bus and heard a heavy bronchial cough as if black lung had returned. I turned expecting to see someone older but no, it was a kid maybe 18. They're kidding themselves and killing themselves
