Who will be responsible for killing pedestrian if the car with Safety Sense P system involved in accident and killed pedestrian? Driver or Car Company?
I got the feeling the Safety Sense P system will become scapegoat of reckless American drivers.
Driver will say "it's not my fault and it was car fault. Car was supposed to be avoiding hitting pedestrian".
Also car suddenly speed slow down on the middle of the road can be inviting other unwanted accidents on road. For example, the car follow behind your car can hit your rear when your car speed was suddenly slow down.
I don't want computer take control my car and my life. I'll rather buy car without driver assistance system than car equipped with latest advance technology driver's assistance system. I think car should be sold with basic model and upgraded model.
If customer wanted car with Safety Sense P and then he can upgrade car with Safety Sense P. Some technologies are good and useful but not all advance technologies for car are good and useful.

I agreed with Kabukilover the Japanese guy was probably drunk if Jason Danielson was racial discriminated by Japanese guy in the toilet but I doubt it was happened.
Does he tell the truth? Does he have footage of shouting him as "Japanese only"? I don't take serious words come out from entertainers especially come out from American. They make up the story everyday for publicity. So why I have to believe it was trued?
I really doubt about Jason Danielson’s Tsukiji toilet story. It’s made up story for publicity.
In Tsukiji Fish market, they don’t like all tourists regardless of White or Yellow or Black because they try to touch fish, disturbing activity and take selfies when they were busied. Peoples should think with their brain whether that story was made-up story or not before commenting on net.
His “Why Japanese people?!” was real offensive and making joke about stereotype of ethnic group was quite offensive and racist in Australia.

If EU has resettled all Asylum seekers in Europe and then EU should prepare to host for a million war refugees and economy refugees in 2015. I'm happy for war refugees and I'm sorry for peoples of host country because they don't want it. EU human right commission is encouraging peoples to use human traffickers and risk their lives at sea and land.
I also hope EU human right commission will look after social welfare of refugees who were resettled in Europe. I want to warn to refugees don't expect too high and resettled in Europe country was not heaven. The NGO and Government can not feed them forever and they have to feed themselves by working in firm or construction site. There’s no opportunity is waiting for them.
The human traffickers will be using EU’s Asylum seekers resettlement program as their selling point and attract to peoples who want to go to Europe for better life.
I honestly believe EU should send Ferry to Libya and brought Asylum seekers rather than rescuing at sea. It will be save many peoples from drowning at sea. I don’t see it’s as impossible because EU human right commission is generous organization and champion of human right protector. Also EU needs to prepare to host and resettle for several millions of Asylum seekers from Africa and Asia otherwise, EU must start thinking about sending Asylum seekers back to their country.

In an interview last month, Heard said she and Depp planned to avoid Australia as much as possible in the future “thanks to certain politicians there.
We Aussies will be very happy if she and Depp movies do not show in Australia. I never heard of her name before and don’t know she was actress. Mrs Depp thinks they should be treated difference from ordinary peoples because her husband was A list actor. She should be apologized for ignoring Australia quarantine law rather than we won't go to Australia or blah blah. I have no doubt Mrs. Depp is arrogant and she doesn't care other dogs and cats welfare. I hope Judge will fine her maximum amount punishable for her offense.

I don’t blame entirely on current Greek Government PM Alexis Tsipras and his Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis for Greece debt problem. It wasn’t their fault but I find both PM Alexis Tsipras and Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis as coward and incompetent PM and Minister. Greek peoples have elected them for to sort out Greece problems but they are turning to Greek peoples to decide their future. The Bill-out referendum was rubbish and fart around.
Greek peoples need strong leader who can make decision on his own and take responsibility. It doesn’t matter left-wing or Right-wing but he or she must have strong view on future Greece. Greece will face default after default and its will not meet debt obligation to its creditors. Bankruptcy is inevitable for Greece in long turn.
Greece should declare Bankrupt and reorganize its economy. Currently Greek Government doesn’t have money and also it can not print out its own currency. It was the problem for Greek Government. Greece should exit from EU and print its own money Drachma.
It’s not easy but its best solution for Greek peoples but it may not be good solution for European business community. The chain reaction from Greece Bankruptcy will only limited and short term damage outside EU but I’m sure some opportunists will take advantage over Greece Bankruptcy.

No, he is an expert in game theory, and right now it looks like he is winning.
WilliB, Alexis Tsipras was former Communist Party member and he was leader of Left-wing Green movement leader. There's no rich EU members are keen to attract Greece to stay in EU and given more money to Greece except German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Leftist politician will think with left-wing socialist ideology. Alexis Tsipras was calling for to write off some of Greek debt from International Creditors. Majority of Greek creditors are EU members and European Central Bank (ECB). Greek Government owes 56 B Euros to Germany alone. Greece total debt was 360 B Euros in 2012 and Greece financial situation doesn't improve at all.
If Greek Government wants its creditors to write off some of its debt and then Greek needs to show its Government is seriously want to reform its economy management and stop big spending on pension and others.
By the way, Alexis Tsipras wasn't playing game with his country's creditors and he was panicking on current Greek situation. Alexis Tsipras is coward and he doesn't want to take responsible for future of Greece as Prime Minister.

Difference between Greek and Japan was Greek Government borrows money from International lenders and Japanese Government borrows money from its own peoples. Greek Government has no chance of printing its own money as long as it stays inside EU. Greek has to follow EU rule and law. In some case, EU over-write Greek's law. Japanese Government was 100% independent Government while Greek Government wasn’t.
I don’t worry about Japanese Government’s debt but I’m more worry about US Government’s debt.

Greek was small country and it default doesn't affect on world economy except EU creditors. However, Greek exiting from EU will shock other EU members and realizing it beginning of EU break up. Greek debts problems won't be going away even it has repaid IMF's debt. Greek will have to bankrupt sooner or later. Greek Government owes total 243 Billion Euros to international creditors and also private investors hold about 39 Billion Euros Greek Government bonds.
Greek needs to repay IMF 1.6 Billion Euros on Jun 30 and €3.5bn to the European Central Bank on July. Greek Government also needs to pay around €2bn in public sector salaries and pensions every month. Greek Government has no other way out except bankruptcy if Government doesn't agree on austerity imposed by its creditors.

I will buy car with less electromagnetic waves gears in the car than nuisance electromagnetic radio waves in the car. These gears are distracting driver and it can damage health on passengers and driver. Medical scientists are still arguing about whether Mobile Phone is causing brain cancer or not. Car company should offer these accessories as optional accessories and let the buyers choose what they wanted instead basic accessories in car.
