    Now's the time to get out of China, not become more dependent on it. Invest in democracies to become more democratic, not communism to become more corrupt

    best movie is climber's high, about the newspaper business. Although dated technically I think it still holds up socially. Anyway, all I can think about is the line, check and double check...

    I was thinking that demographic problems like this make TPP and other trade agreements counter productive. Countries with younger populations will outperform and undermine local capacity even further. Job losses in small towns with limited economic output are more severe than in cities with the ability to evolve. When enough energy problems begin to show themselves I think the world will go post-trade agreement so this may not end up being a fatal problem. The towns will be there when Japan needs them, but more should be done to keep them active.

    Oil is not infinite, so eventually more people will have to farm than currently. At least the land will be there.

    Another idea is that Tokyo is full and any further development must occur outside of it. It would drive development scales increasingly outwards. Also considering the energy inputs needed to ship all the food to 30 million people a day it would be more energy efficient to start reducing the Tokyo population and spread it around. All eggs in one basket does not resilience make. The resilience factor of smaller towns will eventually save them, but only as energy of scale diminishes. We'll see if it's in time.

    I'd have to agree that if the doctor's weren't looking to test for dengue fever vs flu then we don't really know if it's been 70 years of no cases or just a lack of reporting. This is the medical version of the police reports

    They'll have to escalate the eradication methods for standing water too not just spraying. It's possible

    if not knee defenders, how about body defenders? Had a huge dude beside me once and I had to ask him to move. Thankfully there was an empty chair. I'm not paying for blubber boy to ooze all over me.

    Both situations mean that the design of plane chairs are increasingly unrealistic. Yes I take the train if at all possible (lots and lots of room!) but if I have to fly I don't go economy. But even business class you get the blubber situation, especially flying out of USA. The cattle-call for the flight. Baggage hell. The overall experience is only going down

    I'll not fly AA / United ever again. Virgin/Cathay have been ok. What do you like?

    @Osaka_Doug Air Canada depends on the plane. You can get some real crappy ones from Chicago to Toronto.

    I avoid flying if at all possible. Found trains to be more enjoyable

    Frankly given the higher level of education of Japanese women ( that I've come across at any rate ) I would expect this to increase normally, and not merely be a token action. It's a start!

    “It is deeply regrettable that the force could not prevent a suicide due to hazing,” MSDF chief of staff Katsutoshi Kawano told a press conference Monday.

    -100 points. This doesn't mean what you think it means. Stop using the word regrettable, it's asinine.

    why spread it around? The affected communities ARE the storage sites. Maybe they don't realize this yet

    The government has stepped up its disaster response since the devastating 2011 earthquake in northeastern Japan which triggered a tsunami and sent reactors at the Fukushima nuclear plant into meltdown.

    How so?

    It's not up to Amazon to determine how much a product is worth then tell the creator the amount they're going to earn, just so they can earn more profits themselves. That's a monopoly and nothing to do with capitalism. The publishing houses can create their own alternative; readers and fans would support the authors

    Japanese government can't apologize because what is left of Imperial Japan which resides in government is not allowed to apologize for anything. That might imply Imperial Japan was wrong, thus ruining their and their supporter's worldview. That would also create a myriad of compensation requests. It is wrong to compensate when you can bury your ethics instead. Thus it's important to keep the apologies as personal statements not official ones. In official cases it's better to run and hide. That's worked so far. After irradiating themselves even children, ignoring comfort women are small potatoes

    Do what the French did, make it a law that you can't sell below 5% of the selling price. That way you don't create unfair business practices that are criminal. It's a concept I suppose

    Japan must be down on their cashola payments. What is the consequence going to be from the UN when Japan doesn't agree?
