    Wonderful news about the smart phones!

    I am reminded of the diagnostic devices, electronic scanners, used by medical personnel in the Star Trek series and movies. IMO, it is only a matter of time.

    The daughter of the president trying to use her connections to make a quick buck. The apple certainly did not fall far from the tree.

    It is noteworthy that in the years since the economic meltdown there has been more migration from the USA to Mexico than from Mexico to the USA. As a result, the number of immigrants from Mexico illegally in the USA has gone down since 2008.

    It is reasonable for any country to want to control its borders, but it is also important to treat one's neighbors with dignity and humanity. Mr. Chump is the opposite of a diplomat.

    Honestly, I feel like I am in a nightmare, and can't wake up. I want to wake up to find that this thing with Trump was just a bad dream.

    Most days I drive less than 30 km, so a hybrid that goes 60 km on electricity would work well for me.

    There is a time and a place for mind-altering drugs, but for myself, life is too short to spend a lot of time in an alternate universe.

    It won't happen in my lifetime, but parts of the planet will likely become uninhabitable within a hundred years.

    The Chump's Muslim ban is based on lies and idiocy. No terrorists (not a single one, in other words) has come into America from any of the seven countries from which the Idiot-in-Chief tried to ban Muslims. It is shocking to think that the White House is controlled by liars, idiots, racists, and neo-facists. Make America Great Again, indeed. More like, Destroy America with hatred, lies, and idiocy.

    Could The Chump be good for Europe? Ask that question after Putin makes more attacks on European sovereignty, and NATO isn't around to protect them.

    The Chump is a disaster.

    In the politest words possible, THE COURT called Trump a fool, an idiot, and stupid, and he tweets "see you in court!"

    I rest my case.

    It must have been very awkward for the Japanese PM to be in the same room with a insane man who has access to weapons of mass destruction.

    Removing regulations designed to prevent another global economic collapse creates a short term economic bubble, and a lot of talk about easy and quick profits, but guarantees that there will be long-term and wide spread economic suffering at some point in the future. The question now becomes, when will we see the next economic collapse?

    The statements of the court are completely and utterly cogent, something sorely lacking from the Idiot-in-Chief. Almost nothing said by The Chump makes any sense.

    While I applaud this innovative invention, the stated conversion efficiencies do not compare favorably with the solar panels currently in use in other PV installations. Last year 15% conversion efficiency was the norm for PV panels, and 20% conversion efficiencies may soon get out of the laboratory and into the field. Still, the idea of using windows to generate electricity is to be commended, and one can hope that the conversion efficiencies will be improved upon.

    There was an article in Japan Times a while back which posed the question, paraphrasing, why were Japanese less intellectually flexible than Westerners, in general? While I and most people admire the Japanese culture for its value of tradition and beautiful things, embracing more foreigners into the country would likely have the effect of opening up the Japanese mind-set. Due to your isolation, whether or not Japan decides to do this is up to the Japanese. I suspect you will choose to continue to pick and choose which attributes of foreign cultures you embrace, such as technology, while rejecting racial intermingling and cultural dilution. I do not condemn you for that, but it is not the society that I live in. I thoroughly enjoy the multi-culturalism we experience here in California. Within just a few miles I can see Japanese, Koreans, Chinese, Arabs, Jews, Mexicans, Italians, Irish, and any number of other immigrants. I happen to think that this multi-cultural identity is what defines us, just as your homogeneity defines you.

    The problem is that we have a president who relies on lies to make his judgments, and is out of touch with reality. The courts need to step in, when the president is out of his mind.

    Is the Chinese government saying that the islands which it is currently building, and which did not exist until recently, were once occupied by Japan? Does that make any sense?

    One needs to be careful about going back in history to justify one's actions today. At one time, China was very influential in Okinawa. In the late 19th century, Japan took possession of the islands. Will the Chinese government claim the right to own the Okinawa islands?

    Some records indicate that China once tried to establish a colony on the South Island of New Zealand, in the 15th century. Do we need to be worried that China will try to take possession of New Zealand?

    More and more people, both inside and outside the Trump administration, are questioning his fitness to be President. That alone is reason enough to take a close look at this executive order, but there are many other reasons.
