Chanting 'Death to America,' Iranians mark 40 years since Shah's fall
Update the old-guard's chant to remove "America" to "nation building", then its possible you might get a little more empathy on the international level, but not a whole a lot. Those pesky pot-and-kettle issues that would have to be resolved first to get any credentials.

"Through an AI theoretical analysis of past data, we will be able to properly respond to cases without just relying on teachers' past experiences,"
The AI data is only as good as what was factually captured as "useful information." In other words - GIOG - Garbage In Garbage Out.
Statistical analysis of the data is expected to help local authorities and teachers to identify forms of bullying that tend to escalate in seriousness and require particular attention, said the Otsu city education board in Shiga Prefecture.
While is using a standard deviation of 1.0 = perfection / ultra-rosy optimism = not using any reality as a basis of this calculation. Ultimately this will skew the bell curve in to what we call "manipulated information." Seek Mark Twain's one-liner on his view on of statistics.

The Pentagon is sending 3,750 additional U.S. forces to the southwest border...the deployment will raise the total number of active-duty forces supporting Customs and Border Protection agents there to about 4,350
If there's such an impending national security threat; as was claimed by Trump back in mid-December when active duty troops numbered approximately 5200, why in the world would have reduced your defenses only to increase them later to less than your original strength capability?
I guess he's smarter than his generals.

Pushing for Maduro to go, White House warns traders not to deal in Venezuelan gold
So we're supposedly to accept that either Bolton (e.g. Mr. "5ooo US troupes is ready to ambush Venezuela at the Colombian border"), or what Maurdo (Mr. "Hyper-inflation isn't really happening") is preaching is now somehow the gospel? Historically - both have been know to been as pathological liars.

Trump tweeted. "Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!"
I'm guessing Trump would somehow become suddenly "educated" if his own family were be subjected to the same military conscription rules as the common layman in the US.

Wonderful. As if some of the train stations couldn't crowed and busy enough, let's go ahead and add some security check points / inspection lanes to irate the masses. This is one of the reasons I completely loath airline travel in the US, due to the painstakingly long and slow security lines that nearly cause you to miss your planned itinerary (or in some cases it will). I hope that Japan will do it's homework first and at least implement some lessons-learned from across the globe to help streamline the security process.

Trump says he will not sign the bill until he gets the money for the wall.
He said repeatedly that Mexico would pay for it, so he needs to man-up and start making threats against the Mexican government and not against the Democrats. And no, the USMCA (i.e. NAFTA 2.0) trade deal (which has yet to be ratified by the US Congress) has anything to do with paying for a wall or even border security along the southern US border, so that old dog ain't gonna hunt.
At some point soon Dems will need to come up with a solution rather than just saying “no”.

Regardless of the fact that of how much or little alcohol the pilot consumed, or was able to internally process over a period of time, I'll at least give kudos for the screening process at least preventing a pilot who may be potentially impaired from operating a plane. That is not to say that this screening process alone is somehow bulletproof by any streach of the imagination, as there's definitely room for improvement in this entire ordeal as the article implies.

Carlos Ghosn is likely to appear in a Japanese court next Tuesday to hear the reasons for his detention, after his lawyers deployed a little-used article of the Constitution
Almost begs the question if most (if not all) defense attorney's in Japan are ignorant of their own Constitutional Due Process laws if this tactic is somehow portrayed as a "shock move?"

Russia eyes missile defense buildup on disputed isles
Why? It would seem completely unneeded if their spouted propaganda isn't somewhat truthful? Russians are supposedly giddy in advertising a successful testing and firing of their Avangard intercontinental hyper-sonic guided missile, that's supposedly capable of penetrating any known missile defense system in the world. Seems to be a bit overkill, or maybe their new missile isn't as good as they're advertising?

Mayweather stops Nasukawa in 1st round, flooring him 3 times
Considering that RIZIN blocked viewership to the US, that alone should've been a pretty good indication that this joke of a fight should've been taken as serious as a Lucha libre wrestling event in the parking lot of any 7-11.

Wow, I didn't realize that Japan and Russia never signed a peace treaty after WWII, and that only an armistice in 1953 was the only official document to authorize a cease fire between the combatants. Another piece of related trivia was when Japan and Montenegro ended 100 years of war back in 2006, as Montenegro sided with Russia.

"I think the president has come up with a plan with his generals that makes sense to me," Graham said.
Say what!? So War Hawk Graham just admitted that he's totally unaware of any actual plan; unless, he's talking about "a plan" that's originating from his own imagination.
Later while on CNN, War Hawk Graham blamed Obama for the 2011 decision to remove US troops from Iraq which led to ISIS gaining regional power. The CNN reporter rightly pointed out that Bush and Nouri al-Maliki back in 2008 negotiated a SoFA that US troops would be removed by Dec 31, 2011, and Obama honored the agreement (it should be noted that Obama wouldn't agree to the Iraqi's terms to have US members tried in Iraqi courts, which is why the 2008 SoFA didn't get extended, which gave Obama the coverage to pull the troops out at the time). War Hawk Graham was having none of it and cursed the reporter out on live TV, and called her a lair even though that's exactly what happened back in 2011. Just like Bolton - never misses an excuse for US military intervention.

A classic risotto is creamy and indulgent, thanks to saffron
Not doubting it tastes great. Indulgent is a correct description anytime you're adding saffron as an ingredient to any dish.

If it was unintentional South Korea needs to come clean and apologize for the error.
Agreed. This is very a serious indeed, and should not be made lightly. FCRs are supposedly pre-programmed with the capability to determine the foe-or-friend ID's prior to the fire-control's target acquisition.

Language skills remain major concern for foreign nursing care workers
How about the low salary of 280000 Yen on average per month. Seriously, $2480 a month in Japan isn't that really that much, even if you're splitting the rent and utilities with a roommate or a spouse. Maybe the low salary of a nurse in Japan is main reason why most folks pass it over as a career, when could earn just as much working as a shift manager at a McDonalds with less headaches and stress.
