    It takes a Clinton to beat a Bush !

    No, I wouldn't be too confident.

    Hillary needs a good VP candidate to beat Jeb like Sen. Jim Webb who is also running for Dem. Primary. Hope Hillary is smart enough to pick him. He is a rock for Hillary. He is an ex Marine Worrier and he has been very firm against Chinese aggression in the Pacific. He is one of few who understands issues involving Okinawa in Washington.

    Go Hillary! Pick Jim Webb for VP!!

    TPP is dead forever..

    I was surprised that Powerful Nanci Peroci went to NO vote at final moment. And you may want to know next Presidential candidate Clinton always has been NO to TPP as she needs Labor support for election.

    By the way you may want to note Mrs. Clinton was a big NO for NAFTA when her husband Bill Clinton was promoting NAFTA. . American politics is complecated! LOL

    If insulin peptide (less than 3) is controlled with traditional medication Metformine, it is worth staying with it instead of these new drugs.

    Some of them are not really safe in my humble opinion. Metformine intake more than 1500mgs/day may help cancer prevention.

    i just want to let you know new is not always better. Just saying.......

    They have no financial resources to pay for the fine, so this is meaningless. At least, hopefully, they will stop this nonsense. We will see.......

    Her ambition may be based on arrogance and ignorance to nature of the sea.

    Am glad she realized it very soon. Good try though!

    But looking forward to hearing more from these trusted sources. It's interesting.

    Yes, Japan is at least 10 years behind of US, Why do many Japanese MDs want to come to US?

    The problem in Japan is that you cannot sue a doctor or a hospital for negligence. well, you can try, but by law, the hospitals do not need to submit any documents

    There is no transparency in information sharing for diagnosis and prognosis of disease to others. I am having troubles with Japanese doctors to make commitments in writing prognosis to US medical teams. Nothing to do with translation issues. .

    they are even allowed to erase parts of documents they do decide to submit.

    Well, Japanese doctors do not have to save specimen or tumor after surgery unlike US. US hospitals have to save it because it is a law. If you are looking for a precision based immunotherapy,. you need to ask them to save it for you prior to surgery. Otherwise they will discard it to trash bin. Everyone needs to know this. Important!!

    It does make me feel somewhat better to find out I'm not the only one to have experienced incompetent medical care in Japan...

    I am not a Happy Camper either. The quality of medical care here is about at least 10 years behind of USA.

    It is too bad I had to receive almost 40 msv ct scan exposure at once while I could have done it with 3msv in US. You know it is very bad to get that high dose to your body. My Japanese doctors were ready to drop me in middle of treatment when I questioned about the radioactive exposure. Many just do not want me to raise too many questions. I will be here until next year Spring, so I need to do what I need to do......then I will see doctors in University hospital in US. I am just frustrated in despair.

    IMF urges Japan to take bold action on reforms, debt mess

    what could be bolder than "Abenomics?"

    I have been saying this for years as you know.

    Japan needs to reduce Public Spending by cutting non productive public servants who are on government payrolls that includes politicians. They need to go.

    Also you need to overhaul Japanese National Health care and Long Term care. I am sorry to tell you the quality of health care here is going down the hill and not updating with the rest of world. I visited some nursing homes in Tokyo and saw how bad these facilities are. . As you know your government has been spending money for elsewhere including airports, cultural centers, but you voters keep electing these stupid politicians who are irresponsible for decades.

    So choice is up to you all Japanese citizens what you want to change for future of Japan.

    Too late now. Tokyo is stuck with this. People who voted for this should pay for it.

    Who wanted this Olympic in the hottest month in Japan to begin with? Tokyo Olympic 2020 is very irresponsible as there is no risk assessment and vision. You know there will be a lot of foreigners, not prepared, will suffer with a heat stroke, some of them may die. I believe the whole Olympic was aggressively campaigned by small interest groups and selfish people in Japan. What a mess. In my opinion, now you need to do best you can to accommodate it. When you made a commitment, you just do not walk away.

    Too bad he is ending his show in style while I am away from home.

    I always compared David Letterman on the East to Jay Reno on the West on jokes. I think Letterman had a dry hidden punch in his jokes that were too sophisticated unlike Jay Reno who was more straight forward to general audience. .Difference in culture between the East and the West? I will never know.

    congratulations to his retirement! We will miss him

    China should be prepared to ramp up its countermeasures, one notch at a time, according to the degree of provocations from the U.S.,” it said

    I agree with Ossan. I even go further. If their aggression continues, the rest of world will take a necessary action against China to protect all merchant marines in International sea.

    Most important cancer screening is missing on this list above. Lung Cancer. The lung cancer is one of the deadliest but treatable if caught early.

    There is a low dose helical ct scan you can ask for lung cancer screening if you are concerned about radiation exposure. It only emits 1-2 svt to body while regular ct emits at least 10 svt. You need to do this once a year if you are a heavy smoker.

    . Bad food warnings from Fukushima have been circulated through internet for years. American consumers are afraid of Japanese radiation tinted foods without inspection after the TPP.

    JGov needs to enforce strict labeling guide lines to Morinaga, Meiji and many others that are avoiding to disclose SUGAR in Yogurt and drinks.

    Thanks to a personal commitment of Obama-Biden Cancer Fighting plan. This is a breakthrough for future cancer treatment with PD-1 and PDL-1 Checkmate Inhibitor Drugs that were invented by Ono Pharma of Japan. We are beginning to see a light in the other side of tunnel for new cancer treatment. Way to Go!!
