    Democracy and becoming a country again is not the end of the world, just a slap in the face of the 1%er. UK will be fine

    if they don't want to be enabling China, of course

    they can produce goods in countries with better human rights. Chinese tourists will still buy it, if the run on appliances is any indication. Especially what isn't available in China. Thus they don't have to undercut themselves. There was a story here in April but it expired. It talked about a run on various appliances including rice cookers. So it's already happening

    AsianUnion? Hilarious.. a third party general accounting audit for receipts would probably shut down the country. Although taking all spending power away from the oyajis would probably save it. But how many countries would want to payout to prop up its pension system and zero demographic change? C'mon now

    UK is actually in a good position, provided it can deal with all the racists by removing fear of immigrants, since it's already a majority exporter nation outside of EU. Go for countrywide fair trade more than the 1% free trade and the wailing will die down. With trade agreements with Mexico, South Africa, and South Korea that the EU doesn't have it has some opportunities. More countries would line up to trade with the UK than EU. EU has too many regulations.

    It's just a question of half full or half empty mentalities

    Mexico is not anywhere close to the standard of living of Canada or USA. It's always been a joke of an agreement with substandard parts and production. If NAFTA should end that's a good day. It'll just become direct trade agreements again, and if we want fair trade and no more 1%er free trade then that's okay.

    At the end of the day the large trading blocks were too big to manage for human beings and will have to scale back into manageable sizes, which is why respective countries are their respective sizes. Wanting more is just 1%er double speak for endless greed without purpose

    Japan needs to stop supporting China economically. Plenty of other worthy countries in SA to support.

    If most of your life on the computer is using the Internet, get Linux Mint. Fast, secure, GUI interfaces, with the power of Linux underneath if you ever wanted to go with a powerful command line.

    You then no longer need to pirate software as the Windows/Mac users do. Software is merely completely available. This changes your computer habits to actually doing things.

    Try it out, you can format a USB key with Linux Mint ISO, and boot from the USB on startup without having to install it on your harddrive.

    If you're a moderately useful Windows user, going to Linux Mint is the next step in using a computer and will have less of a learning curve. And it's free.

    was this the seventh eighth or ninth "investigation"? Repubs are the toxic waste of government and everyday show their irrelevance.

    Have a few computers, the Windows 8.1 with the 3rd party Start Menu add-on and Windows 10 blocker, is a tablet PC where I can run OneNote. That's really all that's left for me.

    Otherwise I use Linux Mint 100% of the time. I do use Windows once in a while but for now it's been months. Also any games I play are either on my phone or available for Linux, so no advantage for Windows there. I have office running on a Mac but LibreOffice cross platform is suitable across all devices for my low usage needs.

    The only reason for me to keep Windows is for a few microprocessor IDE's to program a chip that may not have a Linux or Mac available program. Or to keep a Virtual Machine available for menus or testing.

    That'll change. The era of Microsoft is largely passed. Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia and now LinkedIn is largely symbolic of its relevance in the world. Going going almost gone?

    Sony fired the original director, there have been problems filming it, and the plot was already leaked on Reddit to terrible reviews. This movie was terrible long before the trailer or the inexcusable Internet Trolls took over, but it's really just another Sony disaster like Fant 4 Stic. Misogyny is never acceptable and that's an issue like racism that needs to be addressed but if it wasn't already labelled a lemon of a movie it wouldn't have emboldened such behaviour. You can't fight tyranny without good art. USA continues to go downhill heading into its Trump years

    doesn't sound like MEJ is going to be equivalent to JCI. So if you're a medical tourist why would you accept it? How many would qualify for JCI on their own? Also it's not like they would travel the rest of Asia and look at the quality of care and then make changes in Japan. The interrogative approach to improvement clearly doesn't exist in a closed cultural system

    Just from watching Youtubers, South Korea for dentistry looks okay. English speaking and US trained

    Applicant hospitals will be screened by a panel set up by MEJ, which plans to register 20 to 30 medical institutions on the list by the end of this year to recommend them as hospitals capable of taking care of foreign patients.

    Uh oh, sounds like a quota, not an impartial evaluation using criteria

    they don't know what they've got til it's gone....

    I voted yes. Let China "protect" it for a while and then see how they like it. Oh, and I'm sure China would say no more referendums afterwards so that would kinda be final

    Perfect employees, never gets paid, never stops working, never has children, never contributes to a country, never buys anything, never contributes to the economy.

    All the profits and none of the costs. Population will go down, population could disappear, has no connection to anything. Only greed ensures profits increase because that's all that matters.

    Sad sad world... or what that "Game Changer"?

    With Trump a possible winner there's not a snowball's chance. Also Mexico's endless corruption and violence are not appreciated either. Might as well start integrating automatic weapons and death squads
