    The Tokyo Olympics 2020 logo is 2 logos. 1/2 Very similar visually, but very different concepts.

    Above, I said that Trump went bankrupt to save his billions in personal fortune, but now I learned that he went bankrupt many times to save his billions of personal fortune.

    Technically you can say he was bankrupt since he owed more debt than he had in assets. Legally he has never been personally processed bankruptcy claims. (The old Rosie O'donnell "bankrupt" claim)

    Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts (DJT stock) is now renamed. = they do this to wash the slate clean. You see many crappy businesses use this tactic also. Many common people believed in Trump and bought DJT stock.

    Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts lost money every single year that Trump ran it as a public company.

    It is already well-known that Trump’s businesses have passed through Chapter 11 four times over the past 25 years. Creditors have lost billions along the way.** But as most of this has involved complex debt arrangements between Trump, his various business entities and dozens of banks**, the details can easily get lost in the shuffle. Trump himself says he has merely been “smart” to use the corporate laws — including the bankruptcy code — to his advantage.

    I believe Trump has no chance to be president. But is being paid to promote himself (must be alot with all the personal damage he is creating for his company) this way to discredit people that want real change in the USA. = Audit Private Federal Reserve Bank and physical gold holdings. Expunge "Patriot Act" etc.

    She said her husband was on daily medications for manic-depression and bipolar disorder at the time. -this is a common thread among many of these shooters.

    Again, where is the "Doctor" that prescribed these medications and why is he not taking any responsibility for his patient ??

    Difference between Psychologist and Psychiatrist (med school Dr.)

    Psychologists in the United States have campaigned for legislation changes to enable specially trained psychologists to prescribe psychiatric medicine. New legislation in Louisiana, New Mexico, and Illinois has granted those who take an additional masters program in psychopharmacology permission to prescribe medications for mental and emotional disorders in co-ordination with the patient's physician. Louisiana was the second state to provide such legislation.[28] This legislation has not come without considerable controversy. As of 2009, Louisiana is the only of the United States where the licensing and regulation of the practice of psychology by medical psychologists who prescribe medications is regulated by a medical board (i.e., the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners) rather than a board of psychologists.[29] While other states have pursued prescriptive privileges, they have yet to be successful. Similar legislation in the states of Hawaii and Oregon passed through the legislative House and Senate but it was vetoed by the Governor.[28]

    This is maybe the one thing Abe has done right. If Abe would just step down as Prime Minister and (only) take control of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Stadium build his popularity would probably hit 99%+

    Cycling is a team sport. So blaming Lance Armstrong is rather foolish plus many underneath Armstrong had their finishes expunged from doping also.

    Marco Pantani was the best climber and not even a doped Lance Armstrong could match him in the hills.

    Even if it's colder in one place than another that won't be the determining factor. The percentage of sunshine hitting the panels rather than the ambient temperature will matter the most.

    You need the rain to was the dust off the solar panels from time to time. Unless enjoy getting on the roof and scrubbing panels.

    Solar energy has been proven to be every efficient on a small scale, as in individual homes. Solar energy has proven to be totally inefficient on a large scale. My question is, why aren't the electric companies pushing home owners to install solar systems that tie back to the electric grid thus reducing the need for electric power to homes and generating electricity for the power company, which in turn reduces our dependance on coal?

    I don't think the Greek people ever accept this debt. -And even worse a rather large debt at high interest.

    It is similar to asking Japan to sell Mt Fuji to foreigners.

    For an expert architect, cost overruns of such magnitude should be impossible, but apparently Ando has been immune from criticism by his colleagues. “Ninety percent of architects may think what he’s doing is idiotic, but they won’t raise their voices,” an architectural journalist confides.

    Nikkan Gendai (July 16) went after the 73-year-old Ando, chairman of the Olympic Stadium Design Committee,

    He is the chairman of the committee that oversees the project. Basically he is given word by Zaha Hadid et al when there are issues. And with Ando having health issues you are now seeing these types of attacked however warranted.

    The real issue here is the inflation of the currency making this project look like it costs more (as said before). This is a project the Abe could step in and try to lower these costs thru tax incentives and maybe even free labor help (Gov/citizen). As for the money itself the sum is rather small considering how much money this Gov wastes/grants.

    The other "bigger" real issue is the site itself (park space) and the surrounding structures.

    True architectural issue: Can they make a Zaha Hadid "vision" into a working reality that is functional and useable for the future.

    You have illegals with criminal history going to these Lib "safe havens/sanctuary cities" and are protected by the local justice system. == You have a few people that are allowed to commit many crimes and they are becoming emboldened because they know they are protected.

    Crime is down because so many people conceal-carry now. And that sort of worries me because you still have groups of thugs acting up and attacking individuals and video-taping it (knock-out game etc). Eventually you may see whole groups of these young emboldened thugs get shot.

    The media really tries to hype up these crimes, but in reality few cities have any issues. City of Detroit is number one, but since the City of Detroit doesn't even register many of these crimes anymore they are not even on this list. I highly doubt Milwaukee would make the top 10 or even top 20. Philadelphia should be in there and is maybe 3-5x worse than Baltimore.

    I don't think Greek debt issues will have an effect on Japan, but the financial/stock issues in China over the last few days are real.

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/07/10/us-china-markets-idUSKCN0PK09B20150710

    China’s new car sales recorded the first year-over-year decline in more than two years in June, as slowing economic growth and falling stock markets hit the world’s largest auto market. “2015 will be an off-year for the Chinese car market,” said Dong Yang, a vice president for the auto manufacturers’ association, and we note auto dealers are seeing orders cancelled at a frenetic pace as it appears stock margin calls are draining the liquidity car-buyers once had.

    The Gov has sold out the Greek people again. Iceland held firm and prosecuted the bankers (many fled to the "City of London"). I would expect to see more of these "bail-ins" to the bankers in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Ireland now.

    ** said he got seven quaalude prescriptions in the 1970s**. The lawyer for Constand asked if he had kept the sedatives through the 1990s — after they were banned — but was frustrated by objections from Cosby’s lawyer.

    Maybe these where quaaludes in 1970 == but in 2005 (35 years) who knows what these drugs had morphed into? Really a quite unbelievable story unless you grew up in the 60's. You need to go to a Grateful Dead concert to find drugs this funky.

    On June 30, 2012, Kobayashi revealed the Major League Eating (MLE) contract he was required to sign in order to compete in Nathan's Fourth of July hot dog eating competition. The year-long contract limited him to $40,000 and took away any rights to endorse or engage in anything outside of what MLE mandated.[18]

    After the champ dropped the belt to ChestNut (due to injury) it will be nice to see the Six-Time Nathan's Famous champion finally get the belt back and claim victory.

    @Novenachama - Very true. Of course, unless you are milking your own cow, you probably aren't drinking unpasteurized milk in Japan.

    If this Gov keeps pushing the butter shortage you may very well see people buy cow-shares or even buy miniature cows to get butter and/or raw milk.
