    what it comes down to is... do what you can to avoid taking any drugs, prescribed or otherwise.

    some blood pressure meds raise blood glucose too... and many diabetes med raise blood pressure ... while statins lower blood pressure and raise glucose.

    seems a vicious circle, if you start with one problem you will end up have to treat the others too.

    over the years I have worked with many "homeless" here in Tokyo, mostly in the Sanya area. One thing that was always interesting, was their reasons for "being homeless." In Sanya most of the guys were "blue collar" and lack of employment was the biggest reason, followed by some cultural discriminations... outside the Sanya area, ie: Shibuya, Shinjuku... most of the guys had been "kicked out of the house" by the wife... The population definitely fluctuates with the economy.

    well that settles it then... after all the IMF is such a shining example of successful policies...NOT!

    I will gladly pay the increase of the sales tax, as soon as the government here in Japan makes cuts all agencies across the board by an equal amount... starting with the salaries of ALL government workers.

    10 years in the US... and a student visa!? Sorry but something fishy there. If they were really "committed" why didn't Ueda start her green card process back in 2000, it has nothing to do with relationships... of course that would imply her "visa" was valid in the beginning, if she had one... and she has had to renew a number of times. Of course if she had just entered via Mexico and claimed to be hispanic no questions would be asked.

    The Republicans are going through the process. But the really sad truth is that there is no Democrat challenger to Obama... Obama is the best the Democrats have to offer, very sad indeed.

    actually this "backtrack" decision makes a lot of sense. Though not mentioned in the article (or on TV news last night,) is the fact that this dam will also provide electricity, a real needed commodity in the Kanto area after 3/11. Electricity is not the original purpose of the dam, but every little bit is going to help in future.

    funny... where can you watch TBS programs in the the US... or ABC programs in Japan?

    sounds a bit like Microsoft claiming a copyright on "sushi" and banning it's use in Japan...

    "You need to take a balanced approach," he said.

    tax(the plebs) and grow(the government)... a solution to nothing.

    The real solution is that people really need to to be weaned from "Auntie" Sam's bosom (can you say bosom on JT?). Of course it took fifty years for the "social" approach to blow up in the UK's face... so I guess the US has a few more years to screw up the system some more.

    comes down to choices... you don't have to use an Apple product as there are alternatives that function well... however search engines are few and far between now... most having been run out of business or bought out by Google.

    But it might be that the government doesn't like companies that successfully do all the things"it" wants to do and said company does't want to "share"... all that info gathering and tracking and stuff...

    or could be the government just wants some bucks.
