Japan, like many countries across the globe, is facing huge challenges in caring for its aging population.
Its hospitals are stretched because there are not enough nurses to cope.
The low birth rate there means foreign workers need to be recruited but there is a widespread opposition to immigration in the country as many Japanese value an ethnically homogenous society.
For some, robots may be preferable to allowing foreigners to work there.
A deep analysis of the current economic and business climate from the perspective of an IT developer and entrepreneur working in Japan.
Twenty students are holding several animated small-group discussions, but no one in thisANorthern Illinois Universityclassroom utters a word.
Their fingers weave in complex patterns as they converse in American Sign Language, which the university has declared an official foreign language.
To the students, the new label is fitting: They say that American Sign Language is distinct from spoken English and that its coursework provides a new perspective akin to the cultural immersion they’d experience in French, Spanish or other traditional language classes.
"It shapes how you view the world around you," said Christine Theobold, a sophomore fromAStreamwood who is taking the most advanced sign class at NIU. "I guess it’s how you view the word 'foreign.’"
Yeah, that’s right.A This is just something random, found when trying to prove how utterly ridiculous most comments are on the internet.A I think we succeeded.
"Schindler's List" is generally regarded to be the best list movie, certainly better than any movie involving buckets. (It's about time someone on the internet took a shot at "The Bucket List," right?) But even though "Schindler's List" is a terribly depressing holocaust film, the trailer for it is still on YouTube. That can only mean one thing: an army of idiots has something to say about it. Here are the 10 most insightful comments about the "Schindler's List" trailer:

The Wall Street Journal investigates the path and rise of the job title, "ninja." Over 800 self-titled ninjas are now public on LinkedIn- but is the ninja always a ninja or can they become a samurai?
The phenomenon started in 2003 and apparently really began to take off last year. Jinichi Kawakami, one of the last living ninjas in Iga, Japan, insists that "ninjas aren’t assassins and a real ninja must have stealth, intelligence, a righteous heart and patience."
Anyways, watch the video my ninjas..

Although many people believe that Samuel Johnson said "The road to hell is paved with good intentions," he shouldn’t get credit for this one.
Johnson said something close, but he was following in others’ footsteps. In Boswell’s Life of Johnson, in an entry marked April 14, 1775, Boswell quotes Johnson as saying (on some other occasion), "Hell is paved with good intentions." Note, no prefatory "the road to…" Boswell’s editor, Malone, added a footnote indicating this is a ‘proverbial sentence,’ and quoting an earlier 1651 source (yet still not in the common wording).

Okay, so this may be a lame post.A I, however, was vastly entertained.A Check it out.
And, just in case you think that picture isn’t real, which I didn’t because of the semi-pornographic source site, READ THIS, from a more reputable source!A Before you start hating… if I saw a link and it said "myninjaplease.com" and then I went to the site and saw pictures of goats in trees (at least we’re not semiporn) I would think the same thing about this site.A So calm down.
