sounds like something a rich nut would do in the Middle Ages. Regardless of the legalities, his motives are just stupid. It would be far easier and cheaper to pay people off. Plus there are no guarantee that his kids would vote for this sicko dad. Just imagine the paperwork if he had 600 kids. The names, the lawyers, the tax, the daddy phone calls, education, inheritance, etc.....

nope, things have finally caught up to my expectations, but still a long way to go. When I can create a computer program by just telling the computer to create the program via voice commands then things will be where it should be.
Posted in: Are you old enough to remember a time when there were no cell phones, no email, no Internet and no way to keep you connected to the world 24 hours a day? If so, do you sometimes think back on that time fondly?

depends on how you categorize safe. If it includes petty theft, rape, cyber crime, bullying, harassment, child abuse, public transport accidents and going further into natural causes like earthquakes, floods and typhoons then I would have to say it is not any safer than 10 years ago. Additionally, more people means more problems, so China & India are not having a particularly good time.

I had a full 45 sec warning on my "The Last 10-Second" app. http://weathernews.jp/quake/html/urgentquake.html
If you add another app it will speak out the location, size, time to impact and if it is worthy of a tsunami warning.

pretty simple, if the automaker is the one selling the point of driverless and that it's safe then guess who would take the blame. Since the automakers would never say that in the small print for the next decade or so, it will mean a driver has to be in the seat at all times and paying attention to the road. That means nothing actually changes to the law today until it's the car (software) which overrides the driver and slams into another car. Now, will any of you trust your life to a car and feel comfortable enough to go to sleep?
Posted in: Some automakers are working with tech companies to develop driverless cars, but legal liability for accidents remains vague. In the event of an accident involving a driverless car, who do you think should be liable?

so, it you forked out 100,000yen for a ticket on Yahoo Auction or something I assume you only get back the face value of the ticket and can't hold onto the seat number for a future gig. That's got to suck if you happen to have a good seat.

Such a waste of resources to host one human being in one of the safest countries in the world. Lax security comes from Japan not being violent enough. A peice of paper with codes? In this day and age. No scrambled rotating codes? If communications are encrypted then actually their would be no need for analogue codes.

lying and making up stuff in this field would have been the worst possible way to come out with 'breakthrough' stem cell research. You just know labs across the world are going to want to replicate and verify the results, so I seriously doubt they're going to put their profession and credibility on the line for a few months of fame. Given time it will be proven that it can be done and just requires very specific circumstances.
My take is i don't care about how to make stem cells (I already have the best you can get - cord blood), I'm interested in how to use the stem cells to cure diseases & cancer, mend body parts, everything from alzheimer's to muscular dystrophy...

Posted in: Although most Japanese don't share Abe's enthusiasm for Japan in jackboots, Brand Japan suffers from Abe's revisionist views because he is the nation's leader 24/7 and the world scrutinizes all of his words and gestures. By showing a lack of contrition about the horrific suffering Japan inflicted on much of the rest of Asia, Abe has inflamed tensions with China and South Korea, and left Japan even more isolated.
