Debt and Study

Fallen Fruit Collective, "Elysian Park," 2005. Giclee print, 40 x 60 in. Courtesy the artists.

They say we have too much debt. We need better credit, more credit, less spending. They offer us credit repair, credit counseling, microcredit, personal financial planning. They promise to match credit and debt again, debt and credit. But our debts stay bad. We keep buying another song, another round. It is not credit that we seek, nor even debt, but bad debtawhich is to say real debt, the debt that cannot be repaid, the debt at a distance, the debt without creditor, the black debt, the queer debt, the criminal debt. Excessive debt, incalculable debt, debt for no reason, debt broken from credit, debt as its own principle.

My Ninja, Please! 3/9/10: Porn for Pandas

Pandas are known to be isolated creatures and poor breeders, and in captivity the problem may be exacerbated. Zhihe and his team have tried a number of measures to try to cure the male panda of his woefully low libido — including showing videos of fellow pandas making love.

In the privacy of their own cages, captive male pandas watch the sights and sounds of love-making on TV. Hopefully, Zhihe says, they’ll be aroused.

"We’re sure the sound of the video will stimulate the panda and the males’ interest," Zhihe said. LINK

Innovation Capacity Index 2009

Sweden is the most innovative economy in the world according to theAInnovation for Development Report 2009-2010, released by the European Business School. Finland is in second position, followed by the United States. Spain is ranked 28th. The report highlights the weak business creation rate in Spain, largely the result of the country's excessive bureaucracy, as well as the country's comparatively low levels of R&D investment.

Ninjas on the Net : Tokyo

For this edition of Ninjas on the Net, we go to the heart of the ninja, the grand metropolis- Tokyo. We even put a little background this time on the way of the ninja for those that think we merely walk alongside the ninja. Leave a comment and lets connect!

-Check out the 100% Chocolate Cafe by Tokyo Station, a new foray into the world of fine and exotic chocolates by Meiji Chocolate

-Manhole bags, kevlar knifeproof school uniforms, and a vending machine disguise aparatus are some of the crime fighting clothing designs currently in style to the Japanese, who are attuned to any type of social fraying, which is currently being fanned by a sensationalist news media

-Tokyo Journal interviews the one and only, Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi on the new millennium ninja:

The ninja were so successful at keeping their arts, methods and activities in the background of history that they almost wiped themselves out of it. To find myths, folklore, ancient texts and even cartoons related to the ninja and their art is easy in modern Japan. Finding something that still has a basis in reality is next to impossible. Ancient texts are written in codes or flowery language that to this day historians cannot understand. This reinforces the popular, present day, mistaken stereotype of what the ninja really were and what they really did. Through time people tend to forget that history, folklore and legends all have a basis in reality. These super humans were human beings.

-Need a good hostel in the center of the city? TryAKhaosan Tokyo Ninja

-Head on over to some of the city’s best sushi atAGonpachi

-Eco-vending machines, solar powered electronics and new packaging are some of the five "coolest" eco innovations happening right now

-Looking to find an intimate guide to the Tokyo art world? Let Chin Music Press pave the way..

-Read the Z Notes or the official blog of the U.S. Embassy Tokyo

-Restaurant reviews in Tokyo, from Vinography, a wine blog

-And finally, an agricultural revolution is taking place..underground

I really don’t know what this is all about…but you should watch it. I found it a little bit horrifying for some reason, actually.
