Not much in the US about it, one mention on ABC. All news videos on the net coming from Asia, and I don’t mean Japan.

Doesn't matter if they move the clock 10-hours, it still won't take them out of the early 1950s!

What? Only 170Kph? That is not fast! Fast for your roads yes, but not that fast.

Japan Meteorological Agency has everything you need, if she was smart enough to use it and not rely on TV weather reports.

The Japan Meteorological Agency is like our NOAA National Oceanic And Atmospheric agency aka National Weather, ocean weather, even space weather.

Posted in: Do surveillance cameras in buildings, stations and on streets make you feel safer? See in context

They are only there in hopes of catching you doing so,ething bad, by then, its too late. Some of the cameras are fake, others, no one pays attention to. Watching a camera monitor is a real boring job.

The main problem when they do it, they think they have to be close to shouting. Plus why bring othersinto your conversation by talking so loud you disturb others.

Not just a problem in Japan.

Recall on 34 million cars in the US!

They explode, ssending sharp metal and plastic into peoples faces here in the US. One woman lost her sight in one eye, others cut and scared.

GM has their own problems with ignition switches and the courts want to file criminal charges against GM for the deaths it has caused.

They're having problems in the US too. The public wants healthier options, sales are down and out in California fast food workers will now get $15.00 an hour, not sure if that's all or just McDonald's. I've not eaten that stuff in almost 10 years.

Vernie Jefferies, all the films copy each other in some way shape or form.

I don't know why they marked this off topic when it is not.

Think, what changes in films? The characters change, the background changes, the time period its set in changes. Cars, planes, weapons, clothes all change to fit that time period.

However the plots change very little between different unrelated action, SciFi, horror, drama or crime films.

The chases and shoot'em ups are pretty much the same depending on how many explosions they can afford, and how big, how many added people are in the movie depends on the budget.

Money plays a big role to make it and pay the people in the really long list of credits, someone or a company to back it and someone to pick it up and release it.

Advertising can make a film look too good, then the film flops, people are disappointed that made it and the people who paid to see it.

Watch enough movies and you'll start to see it, many situations, and locations are reused in more than one movie and some of the movies have nothing to do with the other."

Posted in: Filmmakers look to Twitter, Facebook for stars See in context

Commodore Shmidlap , I worked in the business in my 20s, its not all that great. They use you, chew you up and spit you out.

I did modeling, TV, movies and commercials, it gets tyring chasing after your next paycheck, the rejection and thd disapointment. You need a thick skin and money to keep you going between shoots, a backup support system, a good agent and the more people rooting for you than you have friends snd family relations.

Its dig eat dog!

I got out, flew back to Ohio and went back to work in telecommunication and cellular.

Would I do it now? Yes, but only because I have a steady check coming in.

Z-List films, but stars could come out of the junk, never know?

But using Facebook and Twitter to find actors by how many followers they have, which to me seems kind of a dumb reason, followers doesn't always mean talent.
