    Russia has a ton a surveillance cameras just like any other city. Sort of surprising that no video has come out yet.

    You can protest in Korea and not be deported as long you are Korean (not American-Korean):

    South Korean President Park Geun-hye said on Monday an anti-North Korea law was needed because the two countries remained technically at war, after a Korean-American was deported to the United States under the law for making positive comments about the North. The National Security Law, enacted after the two Koreas were split at the end of World War Two but before the 1950-53 Korean War, prohibits South Koreans from publicly praising the North Korean regime. The war was ended only by a truce and not a peace treaty.

    => Is Japan "technically at war" with SK. From the SK media propaganda you could make that case and they are perpetually under martial law.

    I'm also sure it's unrelated, although they may have simply got the idea for 'beheading' from the recent news, but you COULD say this is a good reason why educators shouldn't be exposing such videos or material to children as part of public education. Just a thought.

    They are saying it was Isis "media" related because it seems from the cuts they were trying to decapitate this young boy.

    Japan has suicides all the time => why is this one being reported? And is the media reckless in reporting crimes such as this knowing that there a few that may try to copy it?

    In this case I don't really think the media is reckless because the people involved were all young with futures ahead of them. And the police/media really need to get to the bottom of these heinous type crimes that threaten the future culture of Japan especially with a population that is continually falling.

    Do people copy these type of crimes? Absolutely --> if you live in a big city where people jump to their deaths from tall buildings, -go to that same place the next day and if it is open to the public you will see a few people there and also a police presence. =The police absolutely know that the probability for people to try the same behavior is very high and act accordingly.

    Does this totally explain the amount to bankers jumping to their deaths? => No.

    http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/tag/border-patrol/

    Obtained by Judicial Watch this week, the notice is titled “Enforcement Options With Alcohol-Impaired Drivers” and directs the 4,000-plus U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Tucson, Arizona sector to “release” individuals under the influence and “allow them to go on their way.” The document acknowledges that this feels counter-intuitive for Border Patrol agents, but eases concerns by answering a hypothetical question for the officers who have sworn to uphold the law:** “If you allow this driver to continue down the road and they kill someone, aren’t you liable?” The answer is no, according to the new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo.** “There is no legal requirement for a Border Patrol agent to intervene in a state crime, including DUI,” the order says, adding that “therefore there is generally no liability that will attach to the agent or agency for failing to act in this situation.”

    At this point it would be best if DHS was shut down. Then you have the issues of a complete open border with vouchers given out to illegals that are being bused into the US in open violation of current law.

    TOKYO (Reuters) -- Mazda Motor Corp. will sell only diesel-powered cars in the domestic launch of its key model for 2015, gambling it can convince the country's army of hybrid petrol-electric drivers that the days of sooty, noisy diesels are long gone. Mazda CEO Masamichi Kogai placed his diesel bet in Tokyo today as he unveiled the CX-3, a compact SUV. "In Japan, more and more people are choosing to drive diesels," Kogai said. The CEO also said the greater power offered by diesel engines is a selling point for bigger cars, including compact SUVs.

    -I honestly think this is a mistake and they should let the driver choose.

    Moscow will have to accept that the people of Ukraine freely elect their own leaders and can choose membership in the European Union.

    Eastern Ukraine voted for secession but Kiev did not honor that and continued with the artillery and airborne bombardments.

    IDC estimates more than 1 billion Android phones were sold last year, compared to 193 million iPhones. The huge disparity has largely been driven by Google’s decision to give away its Android phones, helping to make the devices running on the software more affordable than iPhones.

    I did not know Google was now giving out free phones. Probably hit you with a large contract with a crappy phone.

    The key would be for the American auto companies to recoup by selling cars in Korea. The irony here is that more and more Korean consumers are finding foreign vehicles to be higher quality that Hyundai/Kia; unfortunately the Korean consumer has found satisfaction far more in European cars.

    Camry mid-size family sedan won the 2013 “Korea Car of the Year” award. ** Toyota found a way to circumvent the strong yen: it decided that the new Camry, which was introduced last January by company CEO Akio Toyoda personally, would be **imported from the U.S. instead of Japan. The thinking was that, in doing so, Toyota would take advantage of both the Korea-U.S. free trade pact and the favorable won-U.S. dollar exchange rate and keep prices down. They were right: the Camry ended 2012 as the second best-selling imported car in the country behind the BMW 520d.

    What you are saying is true. But many US makes do sell in Korea (Jeep, Cadillac, Chevy Van). GM has manufacturing in Korea.

    Much of the the KIA design is done in Germany.

    In March last year, the Supreme Court upheld lower court rulings ordering Daisan Shokan to pay ¥35.2 million in damages to 16 Muslims living in Japan after it published a book based on leaked police documents linking the plaintiffs with terrorism.

    Generally most illegal immigrants do not pay any income tax. If the company they are working for does withhold income tax I am sure they are taking the maximum deduction anyway to make the taxes they do pay as low as possible. => There are not that many illegal immigrants paying the correct income tax to even make a legal claim under this program.

    There just isn't any place in Japan that could produce proper wine grapes. Climate is too humid. Most wine grapes need dry hot weather to mature properly. That can't be found anywhere in Japan. Better off paying greater attention to craft beer and spirits.

    When the grape struggle the most (bad years) is when you get your best wine. The good sweet wines (Moscato etc) come from Argentina or Chile (dry). The only way around this is "ice wine" which Japan could do.

    I would say German IceWine is generally better though.

    @chikv and Pro-Vaxxers at large:

    The CDC and British courts do not support your claims. You are the one being fraudulent here (openly).

    http://healthimpactnews.com/2012/british-court-throws-out-conviction-of-autismvaccine-md-andrew-wakefields-co-author-completely-exonerated/

    In a stunning reversal, world renowned pediatric gastroenterologist Prof. John Walker-Smith won his appeal against the United Kingdom’s General Medical Council regulatory board that had ruled against both him and Andrew Wakefield for their roles in the 1998 Lancet MMR paper, which raised questions about a link to autism. **The complete victory means that Walker-Smith has been returned to the status of a fully licensed physician in the UK, **although he had already retired in 2001 — six years before the GMC trial even began.

    Justice John Mitting ruled on the appeal by Walker-Smith, saying that the GMC “panel’s determination cannot stand. I therefore quash it.” He said that its conclusions were based on “inadequate and superficial reasoning and, in a number of instances, a wrong conclusion.” The verdict restores Walker-Smith’s name to the medical register and his reputation to the medical community. This conclusion is not surprising, as the GMC trial had no actual complainants, no harm came to the children who were studied, and parents supported Walker-Smith and Wakefield through the trial, reporting that their children had medically benefited from the treatment they received at the Royal Free Hospital.

    While John Walker-Smith received funding to appeal the GMC decision from his insurance carrier, his co-author Andrew Wakefield did not — and was therefore unable to mount an appeal in the high court. This year, however, Dr. Wakefield, who now conducts his research in the US, has filed a defamation lawsuit against Brian Deer, Fiona Godlee and the British Medical Journal for falsely accusing him of “fraud.” The suit is currently underway in Texas, where Wakefield now lives. The ruling today bodes well for Dr. Wakefield’s suit against Deer, on whose reporting the entire GMC hearing was based.

    But he will never, ever be exonerated.

    In the eyes of millions he already is. This battle has just started ==> that's why there is this huge media push since they feel they are losing this battle. Pro-vaccine advocates should be prepared to lose.

    The CDC openly admitted the autism link to MMR already. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGOtDVilkUc

    The technology is 30 years old now and it's only proven economically viable in specific regions under certain weather conditions.

    Thankfully, Mrs A’s medical insurance actually paid her costs, so she said she only ended up having to pay out about 50,000 yen (US$417). “I was lucky,” she acknowledges:

    ==> She had very good insurance and amazing also is how low her initial charges were $9,000+. I would expect charges somewhere between $20-40K => reason many are now doing home births because they cannot afford that and the typical family insurance plan is $1000-2000 a month.
