SORT BY Relevancy
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.

Tonight: Delaware GOP candidate for the U.S. senate, Kevin Wade, has just returned from the Israeli/Gaza border, where he witnessed first-hand IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) operations against Hamas terrorists. Kevin went to the State of Israel to see for himself how the Jewish state is defending itself against mohammedan terrorism, and he has real-life, eyewitness stories to tell.
Today marks the 67th anniversary (That's right; 1946 was the 1st anniversary, not the 2nd) of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. My guest, Jon Parshall (Shattered Sword), is the foremost expert on the Pacific War and lived in Hiroshima while teaching English there. We'll talk about the end of the Second World War.
Plus: Politics (as usual!), Civil War history, some hangar-flying and...your calls! Don't miss it!
The double digit dates haven't started yet - we're two days away from December 10th - so some of us are relaxing. The sweat comes when we realize that Christmas is breathing down our necks :) To help with the sweat: Jumpin' Jazz and Blue-Eyed Soul from a woman who has a right to sing ALL of it - blissfully versatile Marilyn Scott!
That voice is going to conjure some images for you, full of energy and passion - and FUN! Our much-respected artist has been thrilling us for years - over a dozen albums to her name. Marilyn has been an in-demand vocalist, garnering praise and a Grammy nomination - for Marilyn's take on "The Look of Love", produced by George Duke.
This Southern California native learned EARLY what she wanted in life. An epiphany occurred in her teens when she trekked to the Monterey Pop Festival - and feasted her ears on Janis Joplin, Lou Rawls and Otis Redding. Marilyn honed her own craft so well that was asked to work with a myriad of Jazz and Soul artists - Hiroshima, Bobby Womack, Etta James and Bobby Caldwell among them.
A new album is expected in 2015 - but let's focus on NOW. Marilyn Scott's "Get Christmas Started" is a party and a half! Treasured holiday songs are full of new life, and the vibes from Philly to Memphis to Motown are COVERED. We so need the kick that Marilyn gives us - the kind of holiday cheer that makes you want to get up and dance, or sing along - at the top of your lungs :)
We'll start the show at one - and we've got two hours to get Christmas started - are you IN? Join us in The Chat Room! One of the hottest singers with some kind of slammin' resume is gonna entertain you. You'll feel as though 12/25 has already arrived

This week on SOTT Talk Radio we’re speaking with Peter Kuznick, Professor of History and Director of the Nuclear Studies Institute at American University in Washington, DC. Kuznick received his Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 1984 and was active in the Civil Rights and anti-Vietnam War movements. He is author and co-author of several books on the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the use of nuclear power, and the Cold War.
Kuznick and Oliver Stone co-authored the 10-part documentary film series and book – The Untold History of the United States – which explores some of the under-reported and darkest parts of American 20th century history using little known documents and newly uncovered archival material.
We are going to explore with Professor Kuznick the creation of the U.S. National Security State during WW2, the real reasons behind the Cold War and the decision to drop atomic bombs on Japan, and the side-lining of ‘the man who would be president’, Henry Wallace.
We hope you'll join us from 2-4pm EST (11am-1pm PST / 8-10pm CET) this Sunday, August 17th 2014

Live Listen and Chat go to:
Since the very first detonation of a nuclear weapon the world has been besieged with a certain fear. And rightfully so. Despite tests and even eye witness testimony along with what has been learned through Hiroshima and Nagasaki, for decades society has had a misguided view of preparation.
From Duck and Cover (http://youtu.be/IKqXu-5jw60 ) to the civil Defense pamphlets (http://www.archives.gov/education/lessons/fallout-docs/ ), the American people were programmed to believe that scoot under a desk or fix up your basement, an all will be fine after nuclear war.

Wednesday, February 19, 3 pm ET The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds airs the true story of atomic bomb victim, Hiroshima survivor, Shinji Mikamo.
August 6, 1945 begins like any other day in Hiroshima during World War II. As nineteen-year-old Shinji Mikamo helps his father prepare their house for demolition, there is a blinding flash and ear-piercing explosion. Right as Shinji turns toward the noise, a fireball sends him into a chaotic world of darkness and confusion. An atomic bomb has just exploded only three-quarters of a mile away from Shinji, devastating all of Hiroshima in only a few seconds.
The story of what happened thereafter to Shinji is told by his daughter, Dr. Akiko Mikamo in her book Rising from the Ashes, A True Story of Survival and Forgiveness from Hiroshima. Dr. Akiko Mikamo who was born and raised in Hiroshima by two atomic bomb survivors, promised herself as a child to contribute to world peace and humanity. She is president of San Diego – WISH: Worldwide Initiative to Safeguard Humanity and president and medical psychologist at US-Japan Psychological Services in San Diego, California.
The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds airs live Wednesdays, 3 pm ET.as is available ON DEMAND.
Joan Rivers passed away recently and was always known to make some very controversial comments on just about anything, but her recent rant on the Israeli-Gaza conflict mere weeks before her death simply has to be the most scathing in her entire life!
When a TMZ reporter informed her that almost 2,000 Palestinians have been killed in the ongoing conflict, she raised her hands in mock shock stating:
“Oh my God! Tell that to the people in Hiroshima,” she said while the recorders were capturing her feelings.
“Good. Good. When you declare war, you declare war. They started it. We now don't count who's dead. You're dead, you deserve to be dead. Don’t you dare make me feel bad about that.”
“They were told to get out. They didn’t get out. You don’t get out, you are an idiot. At least the ones that were killed were the ones with low IQs.”
While everyone will have their perspectives and opinions on this statement as well as her eventual death, I have two simple questions:
1) Why has Hollywood remained silent on her evil rant and as far as I know NO ONE has called her out!
2) Was her death some kind of slap from Karma for the cruel words that she spoke over the 2000 Palestinians killed by the Israeli's?
Leave your thought and comments below and don't be afraid to answer!
I'm so used to the silence that cloaks the atmosphere when I speak out on the topics that leave most shaking in their boots! LOL!
