    Ariana Miyamoto is NOT Japanese Enough

    in Current Events

     


    Instead of celebrating her crown, Ariana Miyamoto is already finding the need to defend it.  


    Japan's newest Miss Universe contestant broke barriers when she was recent chosen to represent her country. But because the 20-year-old is the daughter of a Japanese woman and a black man from America, some are questioning whether she really is Japanese enough to hold the title.


    According to Japanese websites, comments on Twitter ranged from, "Is it okay to select a hafu to represent Japan?" to "Because this is Miss Universe Japan, don't you think hafu are a no-no." Hafu is a Japanese term used to refer to someone who is biracial. 


    In an interview with press, Miyamoto insisted that while she doesn't "look Japanese" on the outside, on the inside, there are many Japanese things about her.


    In addition to being born and raised Nagasaki, the young adult also is a Japanese citizen who can speak the language fluently.


    While some critics have been vocal about their hopes of having another contestant take her spot, others have shown their support for the newly crowned beauty queen.

    Japanese military strategy that determined final war decisions

    in Current Events

    Jane and her guest discuss the consequential moments of WWII as the Japanese highest military command wrestled with the Emperor on what solution was best for their country.  They had the moral dilemma of not wanting to admit defeat vs. accepting the perilous doom that the U.S. was going to try to make it impossible for the Japanese not to surrender.  Pride is one thing, death another but the casualty level became clear what decision to make.  SouthEast Asia did not think that Japan paid a high enough price even with the two Atom bombs being dropped.  Please tune in to this pivolal moment of history.  Some of the revelations are based on the examination of the movie, "The Longest Day."

    O.G.T. Presents: The Weekly Jarvis Database Anime Special

    in Entertainment

    Now let's be honest here Japanese Anime has changed over the course of the 40+ years since it's introduction to North America.  We have seen a slew of the greatest to worst Anime that has surpassed American Animation many times over.  So much in fact that it has influenced American animation and movies with Japanese styles.  From Ultron talking about Metor originally mentioned as a spell in Final Fantasy 7 that spawned it's biggest fan base out of most Final Fantasy prequels and sequels.


    For the youth out there that are only familiar with anime such as Naruto to Attack on Titan, Robertron and Kkaos Reinz invite you to quite the educational lesson when it comes to anime.  Your dealing with over 30 years of experience when dealing with imported originals to the unedited mainstream such as Dragon Ball Z without commercials, Gohan from the android saga of the future missing an arm and still fighting.  All the way to the Rosetta Stone of Anime: Urotsukidoji back in 1986 something so horribly graphic and mindbending you will never see it in an American theater anywhere ever!!!  There will be a lot to cover on this subject in addition to wether Anime has been saturated in the American market? Did sites such as Crunchy Roll answer the prayers of easy access to imported anime?


    We know you may not agree and you may never shall but you will witness the power of the true linege Anime/Henti why because no punches will be pulled.  The truth about Anime will be revealed and this discussion began on last week's show this time we are going fully in with no mercy.


    The beginning segment will cover the following news this week:



    Jon Bernthal Cast as Frank Castle in the Netflix Original Series 'Marvel's Daredevil'
    E3 2015: Everything You Need to Know About Street Fighter 5
    E3 Begins With Oculus Briefing

    a Theory of Parenting -Central Park Conservatory Garden

    in Photography

    The Conservatory Garden is Central Park's six-acre formal garden.


    It is divided into three smaller gardens, each with a distinct style: Italian, French, and English. The Garden's main entrance is through the Vanderbilt Gate, on Fifth Avenue between 104th and 105th Streets. 


    The Italianate center garden is composed of a large lawn surrounded by hedges and is bordered by two exquisite spring-blooming pink and white crabapple trees.


    A 12-foot high jet fountain plays on the western end of the lawn, backed by tiered hedges and stairs that lead up to a wisteria pergola.


    On the walkway under the pergola are medallions inscribed with the names of the original 13 states.


    spectacular seasonal displays of spring tulips,  all within an ellipse of Japanese holly.


    In the center is the charming Three Dancing Maidens fountain by German sculptor, Walter Schott.


    To the south is the very intimate English-style garden.


    There are five mixed borders of trees, shrubs and perennial plants, and five seasonal beds featuring spring bulbs that are followed by annual flower displays.


    A slope of woodland plants lines the western edge of this garden.


    At the center is sculptor Bessie Potter Vonnoh's lovely Frances Hodgeson Burnett Memorial Fountain, a tribute to the author of the children's book, The Secret Garden.


    The children — a girl and a boy, said to depict Mary and Dickon, the main characters from the classic — stand at one end of a small water lily pool. 


    The Conservatory Garden is an officially designated Quiet Zone and offers a calm and colorful setting for a leisurely stroll, and intimate wedding, or an escape with a good book.


    For many years the garden was tended by volunteers from the Garden Club of America and in 1983 it was restored by the Central Park Conservancy.
