    I suppose if I was back in Japan, an earthquake prone country full of nuclear reactors, I'd have iodine tablets on me at any rate. Go go geothermal, solar, everything else. You have the engineers, you have a public yearning for change. Japanese researchers are all over the world in graduate schools doing great things. The re-energizing of Japan would be a worthy project

    this is good. Cities make all the difference, not countries. If Tokyo and Seoul find ways to cooperate more, then it will show up their local politicians on each side.

    In another year for my next computer I think I'll go for a Surface Pro version. I can put linux on it and also have windows, as full operating systems. Android is good for phones and small powered devices and given the worldwide desire has every indication of supplanting Apple's closed clunky development. I see Microsoft as a bit player but having a niche. Overall the hardware continues to improve in small form factors and that will lead to more mobile computing.

    Man, that's really sad. I hope there are investigations into why their accidents occurred. At least there isn't a Roof Day (I hope; please say there isn't)

    is he allowed to sue the initial prosecution for defamation, lack of evidence, and wages lost (if any?) ?

    just keep installing solar panels (and solar thermal) and the nuclear industry won't make money. Solar and geoexchangers would be enough for any home or business as shown in Japan as well as worldwide. While Japan isn't in the top ten of manufacturers (China has 5) there are many and that's a hopeful positive future people can get behind. Given that recruiters are taking in the TEPCO employees bailing on that company there's a bright future (puns!)

    This is great. Congratulations to Mikazuki-san and the voters of Shiga. Get going on renewables

    Article 9 is special. It's something I wish every country had, and attempts to bronze over this gold isn't liked. I hope these losses continue. But more importantly, a renewed/new political party not full of retreads that is not beholden to corporations and the conservative way of thinking would be even better

    There's a lot Japan has to offer and it isn't served anymore with defying the public. A new direction, a Japanese dream if you will, needs to be out there. Defined by Japanese to their representatives. Not the representatives tricking the public.

    Countries should not have to pony up for these ridiculously expensive games. The IOC sits on billions and should finance the games directly. Then, and only then, will you see rational spending. When it's their money they would be more frugal. As it stands now, they really couldn't care less about the price to a country

    The theatre experience is terrible compared to years ago. Overpriced for one, also people don't shut up, their phones blaze light all over the theatre, and people blurt out key spoilers if they've seen the movie before a moment before something important. Don't forget that the trailers show key spoilers as well, ruining the films as well. I find little reason to go even if I'm interested if people no longer can sit still.

    Really unsportsman like, again. All Brazil can do is cry, not respect teams in their own tournament.

    Even when Germany let up in the second half and only played half as hard they still scored! Brazil was a joke

    Germany was also playing tighter than in other games given the pressure and its passing play destroyed what little defence existed. It was over in 18 minutes.

    Hoping for a Germany Netherlands final but we'll see what Argentina says about that.

    Sorry, I'm not following. "You and peace" doesn't work in English. You need an adjective, otherwise both you and peace have no connection to one another. Also what kind of job is "You"? What kind of job is "peace"? The subject of the first sentence is job, creating these parallelism errors.

    Instead, You and peace could have maybe been Your Peace to get a sense of it better, remove the confusion and make peace the job. I think that's the intention.

    As I live in northern latitudes it would be nice to have fresh vegetables grown on site around the house all year long. I don't care about the wavelength of light, just package a rack together for home use and sell it. I'd buy it ;)
