    Hope Apple indeed is searching an EV - as a major global player, Apple would force everybody to adopt EV sooner than planned. Which is good for nature.

    Who can tell me what crime Dilma has been convicted of, that requires impeachment because of its seriousness?

    I think you should study the Brazilian Constitution if you want to make a statement about her crimes, and not sound like a fool. She, in order to put her hands on public funds, make a detour from her legal obligations - the so called pedaladas fiscais - to avoid reporting and asking permission first to the Congress. In other words, she stole from public funds.

    In her parting words at the presidential palace, Rousseff evoked her travails under the 1964-1985 military dictatorship, when she was imprisoned.

    What she left out of her speech is that she was imprisoned for being a terrorist, bombing banks. Also, she "forgot" to mention that millions of Brazilians are angry because of unemployment while her family and friends became millionaires all of a sudden, the result of her being so "honest".

    Brazil woke up today with an atmosphere of hope, of bad things changing to a better tomorrow. Don't ever defend socialism if you haven't lived under one such regime, it's the closest kind of rule close to dictatorship. It's hell.

    I am a big fan of Predator, except the last one - which lost its mystique. But I don't think a reboot is good, why not an episode 4?

    The Japanese did not attend a conference for the Future Submarines project in March, failing to understand the importance of the crucial lobbying event

    This piece tells it all. A deal worth $40 billion and they don't attend a conference ON the subject? Well, it's clear that the Europeans didn't need to make a big effort to outsmart the Japanese "team". Problem is that they negotiate as if they were dealing with one of their equals, i.e, China, South Korea, Singapore, where a subtle "yes" a la Abbot could mean a solid commitment to seal the deal months later. They didn't understand that Australia makes business like the Americans and Europeans do: work hard till the last minute to get the deal.

    Perhaps the most corrupt administration in the world, ever. Lies that make the former US President Bush look like an angel. Economics that are far worse than those of Venezuela's Chavez. She called Cuba a solid "democracy". The worst example of what leftists can do to a country. Poor Brazilians.

    Can't believe this is happening in modern Japan.

    I always say that kanji (combined with Japanese language) is what keeps Japan isolated from the rest of the world. Kanji should be made an art, such as painting. If one wanted to learn kanji, then he/she should go to to a specific academy. And, my wild dream, Japanese should be written in latin alphabet - like Turkey did. Well, that's an opinion of a foreigner who always thought it was a waste of time to learn Japanese, both spoken and written.

    Apple is victim of two factors, one of them is an inside one. First, iPhones are still way too expensive in most part of the world. Perhaps in first world countries it's relatively affordable. But in some countries it costs as much as a no-frills car. Seriously? And iPhones 6S models came out even more expensive than the previous release. Second, most people with older models are quite happy with what they have, iOS runs smoothly in 4 and 4S models. Why upgrade to an expensive model if this 2002 one is still beautiful and works great?

    I am one waiting for the 7 model, will surely buy one. I am having a serious problem with a Samsung model I am forced to use at work. It is really not good for working or planning like iPhones are.

    Reading this article, a mystery came back from the depths of my mind: in one episode about a werewolf, in the final scenes, almost close to the final credits, the camera sweeps over a green forest and in the middle of it you can see a devious eye looking directly at the camera, but at the same time it looks like just the shadows of the the trees playing a trick. I have watched all the X-Files episodes and this one sticks to my mind because of this scene. But I have forgotten it over the years. Time to watch it again.

    IOC is going to drop bitter tears before, during and after the Rio Olympics. You can't believe what TVs are showing here. Just one example: the Baia da Guanabara, the bay where cannoying and some aquatic competitions are going to take place is, in simple words, full of s**t. No kidding. Brazilian federal government had more than the usual seven years to find a solution to it, but it hasn't yet. And do not forget the vast array of diseases that has plagued Rio for years. The last attraction on this stage, called Zika, is a virus that causes fetuses to be born with microcefalia. No wonder most Brazilians can't accept Rio being awarded such a premium honor, because they knew their government isn't up to the task it - bribely - wanted so fiercely. Japan will be IOC's salvation.

    @bfarm: yes, I heard from a Buddhist friend that the Japanese "school" is the most materialistic one. When he decided to spend one year meditating with monks, he choose Thailand. He said that Thailand, Cambodia and Laos defend the last standing fortress of true Buddhism.

    Japan has two obvious solutions: either open the doors to immigrants and accept them modifying Japanese society, or change the focus of its productivity - from being an industrial country where it won't need workers anymore to a creative one, like, for example, the small European countries that are specialized in a very small area of business and make living out of that.

    In 2002, I promised I would be more patient with life and its problems. And it worked! This year, I made a promise to be more detached from materialism. Hope I have the strenght. Thousand applauses to you guys who quit smoking. I am not a smoker, but I have relatives who have been battling for years and they can't win, yet.
