Posted in: Japan's ruling coalition secures upper house majority See in context

Oh, gee, failed to change the constitution.

Guess Abe, heir to a war criminal clan, will just have to wait until next year for Pearl Harbor II.

Posted in: After 31 years, Japan resumes commercial whaling See in context

It sound like Japan's desire to continue whaling is similar to coal mining here in the US. Both subsidized dying industries.

Whaling made sense when Japanese did not have other animal protein.

It does not make sense in this modern world

A legend in his own pathetic mind. Oh great one tell us what major strides have taken place since Singapore. Yes I will wait. Nothing but the sound of birds chirping.

Posted in: Trump, N Korean leader Kim meet at DMZ See in context

Whether or not one supports President Trump, no one can deny that he is the first President in American history to be humiliated by the leaders of Iran, Russia, and North Korea, in the same week.

Posted in: Washington Wizards pick Hachimura 9th in NBA draft See in context

I didn't know much about Rui's game so after screaming at the TV for Reddish, I looked up his u-tube videos. He seems to be a very solid player but not one who can generate a lot of his own offense. He has a mid range jumper that looks a lot like Kawhi"s. He makes decisive moves in restricted areas and seems to have good defensive instincts. I am slowly warming up to the pick, especially since the experts say that he has just scratched the surface of his potential. He needs to be more creative because I saw a lot of the same moves over and over again .He seems to be a hard worker, however, so we will all see when the season starts.

Posted in: Michael Bloomberg to spend $500 million to close coal plants See in context

Thank you to Michael Bloomberg because time is of the absolute essence and also to Sierra Club who has been working so hard on helping our country switch from fossil fuels to renewables. We are in an accelerating national and worldwide climate emergency. Every month counts so much more than even every year now in our U.S. and global progress to reach net zero carbon emissions as well as to reduce all the carbon emissions already emitted for decades with such utter lack of environmental and public responsibility by government and business leaders who should have been leading the charge during the last century to far higher gains by now in renewable energy production and storage, energy efficiency upgrades, carbon sequestration through healthy forests, soil, etc.

Posted in: Woman sues Tokyo medical schools over discrimination See in context

Last year it emerged that medical universities had routinely altered the admissions test scores of applicants to keep some of them out, including scores of women.

The Japanese culture is notoriously sexist -- nay, misogynistic. This does not surprise me at all. The fragile egos of the men must be preserved at all costs, regardless of the waste of female talent.

It's Memorial Day Weekend in America and Trump goes to Japan.

Our "very stable genius" will like the fact that this event is to crown a new king, he'll probably come back wanting his own coronation.

Posted in: Brexit crisis: Minister quits, piling pressure on May See in context

Leadsom said a second Brexit referendum would be “dangerously divisive.”

Hasn't "dangerously divisive" already happened? Maybe that's not a perception among Britain's Tories.

Party politics has screwed this process up, mostly the party politics of the Conservative Party. A real Conservative Party leader who was also a "remainer" during the referendum campaign, one with an ethical character that is, would not have tried to negotiate the Brexit deal. She would have made way for a Brexit Tory prime minister to take over.

. . . . and thereupon hangs much of this sorry tale.

Other countries tailor their products to their market. American meat exporters could try selling to Japan the types of beef the Japanese like to eat; and untainted with chemicals and hormones.
