    "First pod of 2014-2015 being driven into cove now," the activists from Sea Shepherd, who call themselves "Cove Guardians", tweeted.....

    It appears that the eco-terrorist Cove Guardians are making another failed attempt to force the Japanese to do their eco-terrorist bidding.

    Parties including the United States are pushing for the commission to take on a bigger conservation role, given that there is actually little “legal” whaling to control.

    And then they'll try to put this to a vote and neither side will have enough votes to push their agendas thru. Same stuff, different day.

    The International Whaling Commission (IWC) gave aboriginal Greenlanders the go-ahead Monday to kill hundreds of whales.....

    It's interesting to read an article about Greenland, whales, and the IWC.

    Greenland's hunts are allowed under a special aboriginal subsistence dispensation that also applies to whale-eating communities in North America, Russia, Greenland and the Caribbean nation of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

    So, why was the man arrested? Cases like this have made the news in the past few years, falling under the aforementioned Anti-Nuisance Ordinance. The law is quite broad in its language, but seeks to protect one thing: the safety and well-being of women. The law states that it doesn’t matter what you are taking a picture of, if the woman being photographed is made to feel uncomfortable or starts feeling anxious, you are liable to be arrested. Even so much as pointing a camera in the victim’s direction without taking a picture is grounds for arrest.

    It sounds like the police will be quite busy arresting the paparazzi and sightseers for taking pictures of women in any crowd or if the women are standing alone, if the woman feels anxious or uncomfortable.

    The Fisheries Agency plans to announce the submission of its modified hunt program at the annual International Whaling Commission (IWC) meeting later this month, and put it forward later in 2014.

    “Collecting the necessary data requires lethal research, which was acknowledged in the ICJ ruling,” the agency official said.

    “We’ve yet to decide on the number of catch next year… We plan to submit the new plan to the IWC’s scientific committee for approval in October or November,” he said.

    In spite of what this JapanToday article suggests, Japan will be complying with the ICJ court ruling and the IWC guidelines.

    I assume the eco-terrorist SS will, once again, resort to violence to appease it's pro-violence supporters. Unfortunately, Watson is too unstable to make a personal appearance.

    Andrews’ death, which was first announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Andrews and his Riverdale pals.

    Apparently, this series is another alternative timeline for comicbook Archie. Looking at the sales figures, the series was dying anyway, so they might as well go out with a bang. (What? Too soon?)

    http://dailycartoonist.com/index.php/2014/07/15/archie-circulation-numbers-heading-into-ground-but-how-unusual-is-that/

    According to dailycartoonist poster Jim Laveey - Unfortunately, Archie Comics strategy was to kill off their sales before they killed off their main character.

    yabits - The vast majority of rockets are landing in uninhabited areas. So how can you tell just what Hamas is aiming for?

    Hamas is aiming to murder as many Israelis as possible. Hamas is, once again, using rockets launched from civilian areas to accomplish this goal. The Hamas rockets haven't been very effective but it's not from a lack of trying. Hamas rockets are indiscriminately aimed and many are being met by anti-missiles.

    Israel is entitled to defend itself. If you're truly concerned about civilian casualties (on both sides?), you might want to tell Hamas to stop launching rockets into Israel.

    Watson, who has spearheaded a decade of sometimes violent high seas opposition to the slaughter, said his letter was handed to Abe at a state dinner in Canberra on Tuesday by Australian Greens Senator Peter Whish-Wilson.

    The known liar and eco-terrorist Watson said his letter was handed to Abe. Has anyone verified that this exchange actually took place? All of the media stories saying Whish-Wilson handed Abe a letter from eco-terrorist Watson are cut-and-paste, identically worded stories. Has anyone at JT verified this story before reporting it?

    As a muggle, I'm hoping that Scotland and England remain united. The English flag without the blue cross would look stupid and the Scottish blue cross by itself would look like a 1st aid station.

    Polls show the anti-independence side narrowly ahead among Scottish voters, but pro-independence forces have run a better-funded and more energetic campaign.

    The separation is going to be decided on which group can actually turn out the most voters. Poll numbers are nice and huge donations are nicer but which side has the more motivated voters? With almost no money, the anti-independence side is ahead in the polls. Rowling's money might encourage other's to fund the anti-separation effort and motivate it's voters.

    I think it's because sports involve the use of the player's hands. Dancing is something you do with your feet. hehehe.

    But seriously, soccer has had decades of opportunity to compete with the dozens of the other sports that are available in the USA and the fans simply aren't interested. Can the fans be forced to watch the game? No. Soccer or basketball? Basketball wins. Soccer or football? Football wins. Soccer or baseball? Baseball wins. Soccer or women's beach volleyball?

    The Spokesman - .....Bulldoze the bases and build some factories, or even just some farms, and you will see a boost in the economy in one of Japan's poorest prefectures.

    Maybe you should be talking to China. I suspect they'll bulldoze anything you suggest.

    A court on Wednesday ordered Japan’s military to suspend night flights from one base in the first such ruling over noise caused by fighter planes.

    Is this court aware that China has been flexing it's military muscles recently? If not, why not?

    Ric O'Barry was a somebody in the 60's and now he's just trying to draw attention to himself. His filing of a lawsuit doesn't mean he has a legitimate legal case and definitely doesn't mean he could win it. According to a March 14, 2014 article O'Barry wrote for One Green Planet, O'Barry disguised himself as a Japanese tourist (straw hat, sunglasses, surgical mask over his nose and mouth, and turned up coat collar - they published a photo of O'Barry in disguise) to enter the museum. Nothing very suspicious about that action -rolleyes- .

    O'Barry isn't welcome and O'Barry doesn't have a case.

    Calls for the United States to help find and free hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped in Nigeria are mounting after Boko Haram claimed the abduction and threatened to sell the girls as “slaves”.

    Why should the U.S. be the world's policeman? That just leads to more complaints against the U.S. for getting involved in foreign affairs. Nigeria has a government. Let Nigeria handle it.

    Environmentalists on Friday lashed out after Japan imported 2,000 tons of frozen whale meat from Iceland, in what they say is continued defiance of world opinion over the hunting of the mammals.

    Junichi Sato of Greenpeace Japan seems poorly informed about who/what imported the whale meat. Sato is also confused about what the "world opinion" is over whales, whaling, and whalers. Most people of the world don't care about whales, whaling, whalers, or whiners. Better luck next time Sato.

    Mamoo - Well this just shows how selfish a nation Japan really is…

    The "whole world" isn't watching. The majority of the worlds population doesn't care about whaling.

    And no one country owns international water. International water is just what it's described as - international water.

    A weekend opinion poll conducted by the liberal Asahi Shimbun newspaper showed that 60% of 1,756 voters supported the “research” whaling program, against 23% who opposed it.

    Seems simple enough. 60% of Japanese are in favor of the research whaling program and 23% oppose it. Internet posters are free to create their own interpretation(s) of what the poll means but the numbers suggest a 2 to 1 division in favor.

    The vast majority of the other people in the world don't give a rats behind about whaling, whales, whalers, or animal-rights activists.
