    For people without computer or smart phones ¥200 may be an acceptable deal. Maybe selling wholesale for others to sell also. Seems to be a bunch of people undercutting the Japanese Porn industry here and I would assume all involved will get a knock on their door soon by Police or Yakuza.

    Make a 4K (UHD) video of your city and put it on the YouTube 4K site = still not a lot of 4K media places out these and people like to see other cities in 4K. Look at the other 4K city travel videos first to see what you are competing against.

    I am with VW on the German made inflators and highly doubt any of these are problematic. Mexican inflators are questionable and should be replaced.

    Another issue with all these Takata inflators is that the company is running at 100%+ just to make all these replacements and it seems the car companies must wait in line until they can switch production. =Seems like VW is last in line and every few months you see another company publicly acknowledge they are finally recalling/fixing these inflators.

    With the negative compounding interest you will continually lose more on these negative bonds. As a speculator that really doesn't matter but as a long-term bond holder these "negative assets" are a hot potato of investing. =Very few normal investors will want to hold these negative compounding assets to full term.

    Maybe Abe has new tax laws coming for these negative bond holders.

    If the terrorists (McCain's Army, iSiS/ISiL, Al-Qeada, Al-CIAeda, "moderates", et al) cannot get supplies this war will soon be over in months. =That is why NATO et al is so desperate for a truce to get supplies in. All the real Syrians living in these cities under terrorist control have left and most of the terrorist commanders and management have left. You can go on YouTube and see videos of these destroyed cities and there is not much left after 4+ years of war and settlement by these terrorist groups.

    You still see these Libs fighting for these terrorist groups and destruction of Syria and that is shameful. Nothing but the total destruction of Syria and the people of Syria will make the Libs happy.

    Taiwan building:

    -first contractor went bankrupt, a second contractor (now arrested) built it. -in 1999 Taiwan those cooking oil (tin) cans and styrofoam as filler were legit construction methods. After 1999 they were not.

    When the SHTF you want to head to the temple -the older and bigger the better.

    According to Willey, during a meeting in the private study of the Oval Office, Clinton had embraced her tightly, kissed her on the mouth, grabbed her breast, and forced her hand on his genitals.[2] Clinton denied assaulting Willey. According to Monica Lewinsky's testimony, Clinton stated that the allegation was absurd because Willey is a small-breasted woman and he would never pursue such a woman

    Kathleen Willey has little (if any) credibility, but this is a Woman that lost her husband to "suicide."

    Willey's second husband, Edward E. Willey Jr., was found dead from a gunshot wound next to his vehicle parked along a hunting trail in rural King and Queen County, Virginia on November 29, 1993 — the day she claimed Clinton's sexual misconduct took place. His death was determined to be a suicide by investigators.

    Josh Cohen is a former USAID project officer involved in managing economic reform projects in the former Soviet Union.

    USAID was kicked out of Russia in 2012.

    Seems to be a pro increase the tax rate so the Olympians will do better ad. It would be foolish for any of these athletes to take a "banned" substance. Many drugs that a common person can utilize these athletes cannot.

    Does "negative interest rate" mean that the BOJ will pay me to borrow money? That seems like a win-win situation.

    Generally it means if you have money in the bank you get zero interest on that money and sometimes you must pay for the bank to hold your money (negative interest rate). If you are a rich person you get money for very cheap (1%+). The common "credit worthy" person may get a loan 5-10%. In Japan it can be hard to get a loan from a bank and you may see ~20%.

    Japan is not the first to see this "negative interest" trend and it is bad timing with inflation and an older aging population that may depend on savings interest. Banks are saying we do not need the common persons money because the BOJ will give us the money for almost free anyway.

    Worst I have seen: A few years ago (before BitCoin) South America was being flooded with many American dollars (currency war). At that time these countries did not want this money and you actually had to pay a 20-30% tariff to exchange your fiat American dollar into these currencies.

    I am surprised more people are not dead since this building is in such bad shape and 247 people were pulled out of the rubble. Building engineers need to look at the plans and construction of this building and run some simulations to figure out what went wrong.

    No one except lobbyists or corporate sponsors wants another Bush in the White House. J.E.B. runs mostly all attack ads. -It is shameful to put your parents in these attack ads or in this case media. =J.E.B. Is the lowest of the low and this is shown by his low ratings and refusing to drop out of the competition.

    Trump is not really a celebrity. This would be like calling Steve Jobs a celebrity. Trump is a brand and a business with Donald J Trump as the figurehead.

    Running for President does not make you a celebrity either. The media might make you celebrity#1, but for a businessman that is rather meaningless and of little consequential concern. There are more important things to do for these people. A good example is that Trump has turned down a debate and many interviews while giving children helicopter rides and inside tours of his jet.

    Minors, their parents and even grand parents should have their name posted in the media for serious crimes. In fact there could be a tv show for these people and I am sure it would be popular and will help to lower the crime rates.

    Hopefully Russia can push these Lib terrorists out of Syria and back into Turkey where they belong. McCain's rebels are a dieing force and hopefully this will end the slave trading of women and children in Syria also.

    Didn't seem to have many controls on this "open" study on the oxidative effects of smoking marijuana. Maybe a controlled study of smoking pure marijuana to smoking pure tobacco whole be more appropriate. I would also like to see studies on edible and juiced marijuana.

    This study seemed more interested on classifying marijuana as a "drug". -I am strongly against that classification, but there are dangers with any substance taken in quantity = more danger in injesting marijuana (limiting the dose) vs smoking. Overall I am generally against smoking due to the oxidative damage.

    OSX is Linux under the hood btw. ---- Not really. There are similarities, but one is Unix and the other openly declares it is not Unix. (Full name is GNU/Linux, with NU standing for 'Not Unix').

    OSX is a hybrid BSD+Mach kernal. As part of the GNU (open-source) Linux agreement Apple must allow a "open/free" version of OSX which is called XNU.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XNU ("free version of OSX") Note: this is not the full MacOSX but a massively stripped down version to satisfy the GNU.

    Apple has the Safari web browser (search) and Google is the default search engine with SiRi having Bing (Microsoft) as the default. Other options for Safari are Yahoo, Bing, and DuckDuckGo.

    You have companies like Amazon.com that are huge sellers (revenue) with little historical profit. Apple stock also pays a dividend. I like Samsung and their phones are some of the best sellers. =Huge fan of the Galaxy Note phones and Tablets.

    With all this cheap (low interest) money the stock market is ripe for speculation (long/shorts/binary options) so these traders need volatility to make these bets pay off.
