    After everything she has been through, on and away from the cameras. I really do hope she beats it.

    @Berniewooster, You just may have a point there. I hope we at least sail as safe as we can.

    Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again. -Ronald Reagan

    Personally and honestly, in order to build trust in a marriage, would not giving your finances over to your better half be the one of the most effective and earnest steps?

    Perhaps we all need a bit more cultural empathy at times as well, especially in marriage. We must all have situations that differ I'm sure, but for a great many it may be well for us to take hold of this concept. Peace on the seven seas!

    Oh, goodness. What business is it of ours if Japan hunts whales? 'oh save the whales' they say, and for what? In what way does a whale protect us or do anything for your way of life ? And don't get all Marin biologist on me, you know what I'm talking about. Are you afraid of the krill attacking you in the night? I mean really, what's the big deal?

    Take those tens of millions and get help the homeless and other less fortunate, that's much more profitable in the long run, leave the the scientists alone. Let the Japanese people eat what they like. Heck even Peter in the bible figured it out. People can eat whatever they like, why can't the Japanese? Peace on the seven seas.

    I just think perhaps Japan needs a bit more urgency in this matter. A few more ships, although state of the art, is just not going to pusuade China. Japan needs to understand that the senkaku Islands are a core issue for China. They have a dedicated plan to retake those islands.

    What I mean to say is that China is not thinking about taking those islands, they are on a course TO TAKE those islands right now. It may seem that there is some place for discussion, but in halls of the Chinese Government, there is none. It has already been decided. Japan needs to understand this and act accordingly, by defining it's goals with the Senkaku Islands and then immediately set about accomplishing those goals. If not, it's hard to think of Japan having those islands in the next 20 to 50 years. Peace on the seven seas.

    I have to give much respect to Japan on this.

    Imagine if you made even the slightest with move with your hardware and your neighbors started sounding sirens and reporting all over the place.

    This is just awesome preparedness, and a very good way of telling the North that Japan knows what they're doing in the slightest detail. It won't be necessary to fire a shot. It's beautiful. Japan will sleep safe tonight. Peace on the seven seas!

    Lets remember that both Russia and China gave their veto 4 times at the security council when this all began with Syria effectively blocking any effort for a diplomatic or armed resolution to this conflict since 2011. Lets just be clear.

    Ref: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/may/22/russia-china-veto-un-draft-resolution-refer-syria-international-criminal-court (Lots more links available)

    Just one example: 4 October 2011 S/2011/612 S/PV.6627,Middle East - Syria/China/Russian Federation http://www.un.org/en/ga/search/view_doc.asp?symbol=S/2011/612

    More: Doc ref: http://research.un.org/en/docs/sc/quick

    This being known, anyone supporting Russian actions in Syria, have a serious information issue. In fact Syria and Russia, as well as others not mentioned can be said to be directly responsible for the mass atrocities going on in Syria right this very moment.

    Friends, never be deceived by rhetoric.

    However, what must be done? frankly put, and immediately,

    -A safe zone with in Syria for all refugees, and or displaced by the conflict, with A U.N. military defense of it in place with safe passage and amnesty for all western backed rebels, given they lay down arms, and give proof of their allegiance to cause. (this first part may well already be established but the safe passage clause i think is a new one.

    -An international effort to remove all terrorist elements out of Syria. Syria, U.S. G.B, Russia, Iran, Turkey, Jordan, etc. - By this I mean a coordinated effort, not the mess we have now.

    -Re-establishment of Syrian borders. first by U.N. troops, then by a firm Syrian police force, way later down the road.

    -A firm reinforced democratically established government, to the point of being able to police all provinces with in Syria.

    -After all of the points mentioned have been put in place, then, and only then, the Assad Government should be brought to task over their war crimes. **

    How does this happen?

    Here's the 'WTH?' Moment,

    Nothing is stopping any party from beginning this action. All the ground framework is already in place . They could begin this at any time.

    Lets just hoe our leaders start exercising their statecraft skills before its too late

    But Samuragochi was forced to come clean last year after his ghostwriter emerged from the shadows to claim the mock maestro did not suffer from hearing loss—and couldn’t even write sheet music. - I take issue with this bit. What's the point of a ghostwriter? Yes Samuragochi did his bit. But there is a certain integrity to ghostwriting yes? Haven't there been other ghost writers for other noteworthy composers. In my, opinion, a great dishonesty has been done by all parties concerned, and yes this includes the ghostwriter himself, whose true motives must be questioned, because he knew the reprecussions that would take place before anyone could have.

    This documentary though, this may be the one right thing out of it all.

    And much apologies must go to the strong people of Tohoku, who might have used the music as a source of inspiration. Much love.

    Someone once said "You thought you were Billy Bad##$, Until you met Billy Bad##$ Then you figured out, hmm, 'I'm good at math'. This this is a concept Japan Sumo has failed to realize in regards to Mongolian wrestlers.

    Japan Sumo must step up, and start earlier, harder with more compassion and more disipline, If they ever hope to be the best at they're own sport. If not, life is cold, so they better have a warm coat. I really don't think Hakuho is the best. Asasyouru could beat him anytime, I saw it time and again. I think Japanese wrestlers need to step up.

    If only the economy ran on love and peace, with Bach and Motzart playing in the background. Perhaps one day it will. Until then God bless the prince for his wise words. I Think though in these days, American pragmatics may just be what Japan needs right now. It may lead to policies that may make a lesser man fear, but at this time Abe is doing the right thing. Let's hope it all turns to nothing more than retoric on one side and economic recovery for Japan on the other. Peace on the seven seas.

    It's interesting how Onaga can not see the forest for the trees. The base relocation is going to happen. This is a done deal in advance. All that he is accomplishing is the hold up of thousands of jobs and contracts, and vitalization plans. That is why he got the snub. The rub will come when his term becomes irrelevant, and his budget is cut. Nakaima understood this, that is why he approved in the end. Forest for the trees Onaga, forest for the trees.

    He knew who Anne Frank wad, and a decision to deface books depicting her. Anne Frank people, not exactly the first pick for reading when it comes to the mentally incompetent, more than likely it was some kind of unchecked obsessive compulsive hate spree, by an otherwise very sane but strange soul, with anti semetic views. I am just glad the books were replaced. Peace

    After reading articles and comments from nature magazine, it seems that that there could have been a cover-up. Becauseyou will find that, the real issue aside from the photo's, is really the ability to duplicate ms Obokata's experiments. But as you will find, that may have something do with matierals used and lab conditions, as well as aptitude and competence. It would be very sad if she is tossed over the coals for not suffering incompetence. What would be worse though is if this research is valid, and is lost because of it.

    I won't comment on the judges, but I can say that, from my point-of-view, Yu-na gave this one away. Both Sotnikova and Kostner went for broke and attempted and landed 7 triples, while Yu-na played it safe at the end and landed a double, you could feel the disapointment. Yes, she skated beautifuly, but she didn't do all she could. She played it safe and gave away the gold. Anyone who watched with honest eyes would agree.

    I think restraint is best. China cannot hope that a result in their favor will come. The only thing that this may do is drum up home support for the government. Their military strategists and think-tanks must conclude that anything other than a war of words is utterly non profitable . Not so for Japan though.

    I think it does us good to to remember the horror of when the dogs of war are let loose. No matter It's validity. Hiroshima is also another place to contemplate and to remember the horrors that should never be. And it goes without saying that physical mortal war should never be waged from anywhere. Let each country do its part, let us debate. But let's not be scornful. Peace on the seven seas.

    Lets remember, in 1920, Japan had a population of what 34~35 million on Japan proper? After the wars, it was 2x that. Today 126 million and change. I would suggest, this population decrease is to be completley expected, and from a certain view probably welcome. Given, the numbers don't sound good, but I think It will work out for Japan in the end.

    You need a license to drive a car, be a tour guide, or have a gun. But any crazy on the street can be a father. Society must have some kind of common sense mixed with 2 parts compassion and 1 part humility if we're going to ever make it friends. Rest in peace little man, your free now, in that big stadium in the sky. And your on the starting squad, no doubt. Peace on the seven seas †
