    Is EPA New Internship For Industry, Japanese Honeybees & Open Letter Impact

    in Environment

    Recently, another top U.S. EPA official was hired by CropLifeAmerica.org. Many people feel that industry recruits top government workers to navigate through the system. However, it may just be that industry is trying to retain top people to avoid environmental catastrophes. Is this strategic or pragmatic?


    Also in the news, Japan has reported honeybee losses from pesticides used on rice paddies. Will Japanese beekeepers suffer the same fate as other beekeepers before action is taken?


    An Open Letter To American Beekeepers was published a month ago and is still drawing attention. What has been the impact of the letter?

    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.

    Attacking questions from Japan

    in Spirituality

    It is correct that the Chinese and the Japanese human races on Earth are very young. If you calculate backward from the year 1990, they have only settled here on Earth 25,978 years ago, the time that denotes the final colonization on Earth. The background for the appearance of the Chinese and Japanese races is as follows: The two yellow races were created and lived in their original native land on the other side of the Milky Way - on the other side of the central sun of the galaxy, therefore. For this reason it is said that they came from the other side of the sun. Their native system was called the NISAN system, where they lived on planet KUDRA.

    The Don S. McClure Show Live - The Pursuit of bringing Jazz and building stronger networks


    Tonight’s: Topic The Pursuit of Jazz Our special extended show will take a look at the music of Jazz. Audio Recording by from Billie Taylor so this is jazz and interpretations from those who played and created jazz to those who study the history of jazz from the BBC perspective.  


    I grew up in a home with older brothers who loved the music of jazz, and I became aware of many names like Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Stan Gets, Monk and Dakota Staton, Kenny Burrell and Joe Sample just to name a few and of course Louis Armstrong. But there were many others my older brothers introduced me because they played in a jazz group themselves. My older brother Marvin played in his own Jazz group and made a recording of Fly me to the Moon. My Brother Roland also played Jazz while he created many of his artist drawing and while he entertained many of his friends in our home.  My mother and father loved Louis Armstrong and Sarah Vaugh but my favorite singer was Dakota Staton and Nancy Wilson as I grew up hearing the music of Jazz.


    The audios are part one of The History of Jazz and part two the BBC look at Jazz and Louis Armstrong.

    Power of Perception writers with Derek Vasconi

    in Spirituality

    Derek Vasconi was raised in Sharon, Pennsylvania, a small town near Pittsburgh, PA. He didn't stay there for very long, as after graduating from high school, he co-founded the metal band, From A Second Story Window, and went on tour for most of his early 20's. In 2006, Derek made the decision to move on from the band and pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Human Development, which he achieved, at Penn State University. After doing this, he went to Japan to live on and off for the next five years, and life has never been the same for him since. Derek has accomplished a myriad of things in his life, including founding a traditional, independent book publishing company, creating an iphone app (eMobo, which brought the Japanese cell phone novels, or "keitai shousetsu," to the Western world), and now, has pursued writing himself. His first book, KAI, showcases Derek's passion for both Japan and horror, as he blends them seamlessly in an unforgettable and jaw-dropping debut book about one girl from Hiroshima who wants to destroy the world. Additionally, Derek is currently working on several more horror novels, and when he's not writing, he spends his time hopelessly devoted to all things otaku, listening to JPOP music, and hanging out with his little daughter and pet cat, Gachapin, who hates all humanity.
