    It's up to you who you want to believe, NASA and the world's leading environmentalist scientists or Republican leaders from coal producing states. For those who give more credence to NASA and the worlds leading environmental scientists (like myself), here is a statistical graph to help move the discussion along.

    To brush up their English skills and get experiences useful for building up a career, more and more Japanese are looking to study in the Philippines, which is much cheaper for studying than the United States or Britain.

    Sounds like the writer of this article could do with a little study in The Philippines as well.

    If the let this chimpira wannabe go to the Rio Olympics, it will send a terrible message to everyone.

    Chimpira wannabe? Are you joking? He's risen to the number two ranked badminton player in THE WORLD. Do you have any concept of the thousands of hours of hard work and dedication it takes to achieve that??

    he visited more than 6 times

    No, he actually visited six times, not more than six times.

    I find it incredibly hypocritical of the Japanese government to let some forms of gambling (horse racing, pachinko, etc.) flourish while having such harsh penalties for other forms of gambling such as casino games. In fact, the current government is pushing for the opening of casinos in different areas of Japan, so how bad can it really be?

    Give this kid a fine of a couple hundred thousand yen and let him compete!

    Good for her. It takes guts to abandon the secure route of of a traditional job like teaching and to follow one's dreams. I wish her all the success in the world!

    Totally agree with you, Smith.

    by making this statement, he is using soft power to influence the gov't.

    You've got to kidding. His banal platitudes do nothing of the sort. Just more empty rhetoric, which, for a person in his position, add insult to injury for the neglected victims in Tohoku.

    Good article. I especially enjoyed what the Japanese interviewees had to say and the Stones' song references at the end.

    After nearly 10 miserable years of Democrat caused misery, mistakes, wars started and the prophet Obama throwing the Democrats under the bus, all Republicans need to do is show up.

    You mean "misery" like ...

    ... taking an economy on the brink of collapse and turning it into one of the strongest in the world (unemployment rate when Obama was elected in 2008 - 7.1%; unemployment rate last month - 4.9%; +7.9 million jobs as of July 2015; S & P 500 at +177%, etc, etc.

    ... ending two wars (in Iraq and Afghanistan)

    ... Affordable Health Care Act (number of uninsured Americans dropped from 18% to 12.3% (11 million more adults now have insurance); projected savings over 15 years - $231 Billion

    ... sweeping financial industry reforms

    ... I could go on and on ....

    How these delusional fans actually think that they would ever stand a snowball's chance in hell of dating their idols is beyond me. I guess the Beibs spoiled their little fantasy. Or did the AKB girls spoil the fantasies of millions of teenage girls around the world? Who knows? And WHO CARES?!?!?

    @the Fu -I hope you get the chance to visit. Besides the usual tourist attractions, the ethnic diversity is amazing, with two Chinatowns, Greektown, 2 Little Italys, Koreatown, Little India, etc. Not to mention world-class theater, the beaches, proximity to Niagara Falls, etc. But, as mentioned, you'd definitely want to avoid the winter!

    Thanks for putting a big smile on my face. Sad to hear that Justin Bieber is the best known Canadian (sigh), but nice to hear that they would all like to visit. :-)

    the government thinks that they can stimulate the economy by increasing the sales tax

    The government doesn't want to increase the sales tax to stimulate the economy - a strategy that has been criticized by leading economists - but rather to simply to increase its coffers. It not only needs this money to pay down the ridiculous amount of debt it has accrued, but to fund more 'committees' and 'working groups' for useless studies (i.e. more $$ for cronies) and to fund more projects, which increase their kickbacks. The J. government is unbelievably corrupt. Why don't we hear more about it? Because the Abe government has muzzled reporters with its new secrecy law!!

    Yeah ... great idea. Let Iran continue to build the bomb and take away Israel's nukes at the same time. OH, I FORGOT, Iran's 'secret' underground nuclear facility and thousands of spinning centrifuges are simply to meet it's energy needs. Silly me ...

    As polite as clerks are, most shoppers are just as respectful toward the hard-working individuals who are ringing their purchases up.

    I suppose that's true if one considers grunts in response to questions being respectful.
