    Chapman was obsessed with Lennon and he wanted to be Lennon. Just like John Lennon, he married a Japanese woman. Gloria Hiroko Abe knew about his husband's fantasies about killing Lennon, but failed to inform the authorities.

    contrary to earlier statements by the rebels, Alexander Borodai said they had not found the black box flight recorders.

    Black boxes should be in safe hands by now, somewhere in Russia. The world's best professionals (yes, they are the best) should be checking if there is anything that needs to be doctored. It may take years until they hand it back to ICAO, just like they did in Korean Air Lines Flight 007 case.

    with the possible technical assistance of Russians.

    Well, who else?

    Military experts say that it requires extensive training to just turn on those complex BUK systems. Here is the photo of a BUK M1 interface.


    The missile was launched from an area that is controlled by Russian-backed separatists but it was not launched by pro-Russian rebels as they could not even turn it on without assistance.

    Imo, Ukrainian army guess this Russian plane, cuz Malaysian flag look so similar with Russian

    ??? Ever heard of vexillology? Malaysian flag looks like American flag, probably because it was based on East India Company flag.

    There is a conspiracy theory which says that pro-Russian rebels wanted to attack an American airliner as the flags of both countries look alike.

    Corporate greed is responsible too for this catastrophe.

    Back in April, International Civil Aviation Organization has advised airlines to avoid east Ukrainian air zone and to change their routes. Most of the major carriers did not care as they were interested in saving fuel only.

    If Netherlands would have made the final, Robben could be the Golden Boot player.

    Costa Rica's Navas should have won the Golden Glove award but they have selected Neuer maybe because he recorded the most clean sheets and he did not make any major mistakes. Navas, Tim Howard, Ochoa were the best goalkeepers in this tournament.

    In the Japanese announcement the term "mesopharyngeal carcinoma" has been used.

    Salted fish and meat, smoked food and virus infections are strongly associated with this type of cancer. Alcohol and tobacco may contribute to the development of this cancer but the link is not that strong.

    It is especially common in southern China, Hong Kong and Greenland but rare in U.S and Japan.

    What some might consider chronic alcoholism in the United States is perfectly okay

    Shame and guilt emotions linked to alcoholism can lead to suicide, especially in male population aver 50.

    One high profile case is the suicide of former Finance minister Shoichi Nakagawa in 2009, he made the press for being drunk at G7 news conference and was accused by Japanese public to bring shame on the entire nation. He committed suicide 8 months after the incident.

    Off topic perhaps, but it's common for South Koreans and Japanese to become pals overseas where there's no hatemongering media involved.

    I would be very surprised if they were real South Korean citizens.

    They should be Zainichi Kankokujin with South Korean passports. They are born and raised in Japan but they don't have a Japanese passport and they use South Korean passports when traveling.

    Same thing can be said for France too.

    Best African footballers are playing for France, but the only black French supporters are some racist whites in black faces.

    Too late, too little.

    Google only announced that they will use TSL/SSL when exchanging data between Gmail data centers. This will make MITM (man-in-the-middle) attacks a bit difficult. That's all.

    It's a well-known fact that GCHQ intercepts Google and Yahoo Cloud data hosted in U.K. and sends it to NSA data centers. Encrypted data are decrypted in Utah Data Center powered by the "Code-Breaking Supercomputer Platform".


    NSA should already have all Google encryption keys in their massive databases (Key Provisioning Service data). If they are missing any key they can always get it with a warrant.

    NTT Data Corp. will do the manual work actually. They have the state of the art scanning equipment and huge human resources. This digitization step requires quite a lot of detailed painstaking work and Japanese technicians excel in that department.

    Data storage will be handled by storage giant EMC company and they are donating 2.8 petabytes of storage location for this project. (1 petabyte = 10^3 terabytes)

    It's another major Third Platform (Big Data, Cloud computing, mobiles devices) project actually.

    Most probably fake news.

    The man is over 60 and that's the only thing that fits to the original profile.

    Coding style analysis of the original code released in 2009 revealed that the creator should be someone with a strong knowledge of cryptography and P2P protocol but who is not a practicing programmer. The code was old-style (great bit twiddling hacks but weak at general design, mainly procedural code, tightly coupled classes, no nice Interfaces, Hungarian naming convention,etc.. ) and hard to maintain. Bit-coin development team needed to rewrite most of it.

    From now on, it would not be wrong to claim that Germany (and not EU) has replaced Russia as the dominant power in eastern Europe.

    After Poland and Ukraine, next is Belarus.

    The lost of Ukraine will have huge economic and political implications for Putin's Russia.

    Japan's comic tradition has always favored farce over satire, and stereotyping has always been a key element in Japanese farce. Japanese basically laugh at buffoonery, slapstick and puns, sophisticated humor and political satire are rare birds in Japanese cultural history.

    This commercial may not be politically correct but it is very Japanese.

    By Asian standards, Japan today is unusually rich in surnames. There are some 100,000 altogether, as against a few thousand in China (whose population is 10 times Japan’s)

    Also known as Galton-Watson Process.


    A graphical explanation can be found here:

    Hitleresque? Yes.

    Third Reich school textbooks were rewritten to reflect Nazi version of history and biology. They have even reworked mathematics problems.

    "A bomber aircraft on take-off carries 12 dozen bombs, each weighing 10 kilos. The aircraft takes off for Warsaw the international center for Jewry. It bombs the town. On take-off with all bombs on board and a fuel tank containing 100 kilos of fuel, the aircraft weighed about 8 tons. When it returns from the crusade, there are still 230 kilos left. What is the weight of the aircraft when empty?"

    It all started like this.
