    Crimea was invaded, the armed forces neutralised... then the people asked to vote, although the Russians were always going to keep it anyway. It isn't frecognised as part of Russia except by the Russians and Crimeans.

    Putin won't rest until he has recreated the Soviet Union. The Baltic countries had better watch their backs...

    There is a reason why it is recognized as part of Russia by both Russia and the Crimeans. You see Crimea-Oblast was actually part of Russia for the past 600 years. It only was not part of the Russia for the past 60 years. This is due to Khruschev illegal policy of transferring Crimea-Oblast over under the 1954 transfer.

    Also Putin does not want to recreate the Soviet Union. No one in Russia does. While to us Communism means authoritarian brutal rule, in that part of the world it mostly means breadlines, and food shortages.and scarcity of all goods. In Putins eyes when he called the collapse of the USSR as "The greatest geopolitical disaster" what he meant by this was not a nostalgic view of the USSR. Indeed he witnessed 1 of his parents carried away in a wagon of dead bodies under such a system. But rather he meant that the whole of the USSR could had been reformed into the market based economy that Russia is today.

    Independent state hood for East Ukraine is the only solution. If they wish to become an independent state or part of "Novo-Rossiya" is up to them as a right to self determination. Much like Crimea.

    The title is none sense. Jews and Muslims have known each other since the days of Muhammad. What has changed? nothing. There is conflict against Islam, where ever its found in significant numbers.

    Williams problems came from an extremely brutal and harsh court system that forced him to pay unreasonable alimony payments from a previous marriage. Divorce court placed him in a position where he had to pay $20 million+ for his previous 2 wives. Money that those two don't even deserve. When your famous, and you get divorce then you can be sure that divorce court will slap you with an outrageous alimony payment. The sadness this brought him led him to addictions and eventually death. So women and divorce court are certainly responsible for his suicide.

    I voted no. On a more important question, Can Islam co-exist peacefully with the rest of the world? No for me. Islam can't even co-exist peacefully with itself. This has been a true constant since shorty after the death of it's "prophet" Muhhamad.

    I wouldn't This small group of people are constantly busy at all times. The media and photographers follow them at all times. Lawsuits are filed against them all the time. Liberal politicians demonize them all the time. Little free time, little privacy. Not the kind of life style I would like to live.

    Japans solution traditionally to demographic problems was transferring it's industries else where. Take for example before WWII. Before WWII Japan transferred it's industries into the coast of China because of the raw materials needed. Japan also has an amazingly dynamic economy capable of finding solutions that would only ever pop out of such a small archipelago island. Immigration is certainly not going to be a valid solution as it goes heavily against the cultures historic tradition for harmony and cohesion.

    Those that think immigration is some kind of solution solves all, are not taking Europe into consideration. Only the United States has a tradition of assimilating large waves of immigrants, not something you can say about say Germany or France.

    If anything, technology such as Robotics will imo solve many of these labor problems but not all. If they want to see to it that the indigenous populations birth rate increase then the only solution I can think of is lowering taxes. Japan is already one of the most heavily taxed jurisdictions in the world. This contributes to higher price and necessity prices. Thus less money to raise a third child and border sufficient for a second. And they are certainly too prideful to live off welfare like many immigrants in the west.

    Makes me sick to my stomach. Davos is already gender mixed without the need of addressing it to be so. Other then that its a waste of time and resources. Nothing good comes out of Davos forums. Except a world or IMF leader speaking to the world "we need more stimulus!", " this year we will see x economy grow!". Garbage. And an all female Davos will be be equally needless.

    That's hardly a "fact." Scandinavian countries have been "socialist" for decades. How come they're so rich and well educated...and in absolutely no danger of "running out of money" (apart possibly from Eurozone member Finland)?

    That's because your still behind the times by 20 years. Scandinavian countries in particular Sweden, the poster child for the socialist advocate are hard socialist any more. These are some of the most free market oriented and pro free market reform countries in the world. Socialism collapsed Sweden back in 1991, forcing them to raise interest rates to a whomping 500%. They have since learned their lesson the hard way and have been moving gradually away from that system. Many Swedes would rather use private health care, as opposed to socialized health care. Which their country has both.

    As for the main topic at hand, I have no problem with paid maternity leave. So long as it's negotiated between employer and employee. Using the force of Govt to force all employers to abide by paid maternity leave just does not work. Most companies are small businesses, not big. A business main priority is to grow and become profitable. It does not care about some leftists happy happy make everyone comfortable and accommodated world view. You create an environment where everyone child bearing women gets paid for not working, your ideals become an impediment to this end goal, thus your reckless ideal destroys prosperity. That's the end of it.

    This game felt as if Greece was playing a kind of wall off the goal defensive game. While the Japanese team I felt was playing a sort of find an opening to this impregnable fort game.

    Brazil vs Mexico and S.Korea vs Russia were by far my favorite match ups this season. Despite being American and rooting for America. :). Sad that Japan lost, which I was rooting for. =(

    All forms of tax cuts are a step in the right direction. Although the most optimal step would be to abolish many forms of taxation altogether. . .

    I agree with NeoRio and MarkG.

    Japan is a country with little natural resources. Other then low grade coal and fishery. So it depends on a highly educated and technical work force to be and remain an enviable and wealthy society. So many countries especially all of Africa are rich in terms of abundant and exploitable natural resource. Yet that alone is not enough to make your society wealthy. Absolutely $0 foreign aid should go to these countries that depend on handouts while expecting more by breeding more. This is irresponsible and reckless and must be put to an end.

    I saw the video some time ago. This entire "racist" tripe began with some twitter follower of Avril that saw it as "racist". Fortunately political correctness is not as strong in Japan as in the west. Japanese people don't mind such videos, since the video was made in earnest for entertainment. Those that dwell on finding an offense in anything and everything, in particular leftist liberals are a scourge to humility and a constant annoyance where ever they show their hideous, repulsive, vindictive, boring, cowardly and delusional faces.

    I have been following this topic for sometime and I would suggest looking at pictures of the Aral Sea.

    No nat resource is unlimited, all are finite. Under economic understanding anything that is unlimited and has a use would have 0 monetary value because of how plentiful it would be.

    Fresh water isn't no different, while still very plentiful it still has price. And that price is still subject to market dynamics.
