"The Tree of Life"
As all the decent jobs in society are occupied by 70% of the population, the rest of the people must struggle to find any chance to make money even if it is not so decent at all.
That is why a portion of the people, 3% of all the population, is under strong temptation for any kind of crimes even in Japan, the E.U., and the U.S.
That is why the media’s news reporting is full of crimes, though I cannot simply blame criminals while I hate their crimes.
(As for the murder rate, Japan’s rate is one-seventh of the rate of the U.S. and one fourth in comparison with France and Germany…and the U.K. has the highest crime rate per capita among Japan, France, Germany, the U.S., and the U.K…)
Oh, it is truly a tough job to serve the nation by reporting crime news every night…
And, though the covered period for the following data is between 1998 - 2000...

SECTION I: Subprime Loan Default Solution
Now somebody must offer an effective solution to avoid the future debacle to be triggered by other five million default cases in repayment for the subprime lending.
Echoing these concerns, consumer rights attorney Irv Ackelsberg predicted in testimony to the U.S. Senate Banking Committee that five million foreclosures may occur over the next several years as interest rates on subprime mortgages issued in 2004 and 2005 reset from the initial, lower, fixed rate to the higher, floating adjustable rate or "adjustable rate mortgage".
First of all, it is said that those who yearly earn 1.5 million dollars or more account for 5% of the U.S. population, namely 15 million people.
My solution is that the U.S. Government and these 15 million rich Americans buy out all the five million outstanding subprime-loan houses.
Accordingly, the book value of all the houses will be maintained and related interests will be paid to owners of financial instruments that include securitized subprime-loan liabilities. Put simply, those ominous pariahs in the financial market will turn to be a source of real assets.
If a man earns yearly $1.5 million, he would most probably spend 10% of the income, namely $150,000, for stupid things or must lose it somewhere. Therefore, actually each of them can buy one existing house with a margin of his yearly income. If one in five among them, namely three million rich men decide to buy one used house for each, total three million used houses can be purchased in the subprime-loan housing market.
The U.S. Government has to spend its budget only for purchasing other two million houses, at the costs of $300 billion (= $150,000 multiplied by 2,000,000).
Compared with the current measures the U.S. Government is applying with the expected total costs of $8.5 trillion (according to Bloomberg), my plan’s $300 billion are just 3.5% (of the $8.5 trillion).
The U.S. Government and the rich 15 million Americans must find a way of realizing profits from those five million houses now being owned by them.
I will be of course of help to them with more innovative plans, since there are 10 million refugees all over the world, with 2.1 million in Afghanistan, 1.5 million in Iraq, 0.7 million in Sudan, and 0.5 million in Somalia, Republic of Congo, and Burundi, respectively, while there are five million houses to be evacuated in the U.S.

SECTION II: Japanese Obamas This Week
Ms. Koike, a former defense minister of Japan, flew to Palestine, though the National Assmbly is in session in Tokyo, early this February to contribute about US$ 30,000 or more to victims in Gaza, a city many streets of which were reduced to ruins due to the Israel-Hamas battles.
She collected this amount by holding a party for the peace of Palestine in Tokyo in January, where the wife of Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso and the wives of two former Prime Ministers, Mr. Yasuo Fukuda and Mr. Shinzo Abe, also made appearance.
Though she had a press conference in Jerusalem on Feb.2 after her trip to Gaza, there seems to be no English reports on her passionate action.
So, let’s be content with checking a Japanese article and an old English one.
A Female Worker in Japan
Yesterday a Japanese TV station presented a report on a Japanese small company that has been producing sound profits even in these economic circumstances.
The company has scores of employees; remarkably almost half of them are mentally handicapped persons.
To allow them to work efficiently, the company has introduced various systems and methods suitable for their personalities, habits, and characteristics, resulting in high quality goods being delivered from its factory to consumers.
But, the chairman of the company did not like to employ disabled or handicapped persons at all until 50 years ago.
Fifty years ago, a handicapped girl came to work in the company as a kind of intern, since she just graduated from a junior-high school.
When her term in the assignment was over, the chairman, then the young president of the company, would not employ her at all. Yet, all the workers in the factory strongly recommended the president to officially recruit the handicapped girl into the company, since she had worked with enthusiasm more than anybody.
Accordingly the president took on her to find that she was an excellent worker. Then he changed his view on disabled and handicapped people; the company started to employ more disabled and handicapped people since then.
Now, she has been working in the company for 50 years. The once-young president is also still there as the old chairman of the company which is still also nameless and small but profitable in the Japanese society.
Yeah, that is all for today.
I recommend a rest to all of you, since February is slow in business as with August usually in Japan.
But, remember the precious lessons of September 15 of 2008 as well as September 11 of 2001, so worshipfully.
(So, I have a feeling that je dois aller quelque part demain…

SECTION II: U.S. Mad Cow Disease Victims Estimated
The Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease occurs to one of one million people in a natural manner without involvement of the mad cow disease, but a patient has an onset of this natural Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease usually at the age of 63 on average.
Conversely if it occurs when one is young, it may be not so natural.
( http://realog.jp/aymomyi/830089.html )
Yet, the mad cow disease (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy) must be most probably linked with the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
(It is believed by most scientists that the disease may be transmitted to human beings who eat the brain or spinal cord of infected carcasses. In humans, it is known as new variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD or nvCJD), and by April 2008, it had killed 164 people in Britain, and 40 elsewhere with the number expected to rise because of the disease's long incubation period.
But some patients of the Alzheimer's Disease look like those of the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, according to a certain theory.
Please refer to the following:
"Every 72 seconds someone in America develops Alzheimer’s."
("Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures 2007"
By The Alzheimer’s Association)
Please note that 10% of all the deaths of Alzheimer's Disease patients in the U.S. is believed by some people concerned here and there to be actually death of the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease most probably linked with the mad cow disease.
If the whale flesh has special healing properties on the Alzheimer's Disease and the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, there would be peace between whaling Japan and the anti-whaling Anglo-Saxon coalition.
Did you get it?......Whales or mad cows!?

"Thy First Love"
In Japan, there are 108 brands of daily newspapers with a total daily circulation of 70 million copies.
In China, there are 963 brands of daily newspapers with a total daily circulation of 97 million copies.
In the U.S., there are 1,486 brands of daily newspapers with a total daily circulation of 57 million copies as of 2004.
However, the population of Japan is 120 million; the US population is 300 million; and the China’s population 1,324 million.
Accordingly, the number of copies being issued by newspaper companies everyday is 551.2 per 1,000 citizens for Japan, 74.1 for China, and 193.2 for the U.S. as of 2004.
In addition, it is said to understand 90% of all the sentences written in a Japanese newspaper you must know at least 10,000 Japanese words, including complicated Kanji expressions.
It is also said that to understand 90% of all the sentences written in an English newspaper you must know at least 3,000 English words.
It is also said that to understand 90% of all the sentences written in a French newspaper you must know at least 2,000 French words.
That is why I am telling you that the Japanese language is more advanced than English and French.
**** ***** *****
Yet, if you are a Japanese and able to speak English and French fluently, most of Japanese will envy you.
This is, and has been, one of the most significant social and cultural issues in Japan since the late 19th century.
Anyway, if you want to obtain more authentic data, refer to the Japanese Government:
(Everything is all right. But, who and what do you think the wife of that culprit is, since he might have at least a shame at presenting her in TV news?

Rev 2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

"They Have No Wine"
Before the start of the Second World War (September 1, 1939 – September 2, 1945), Nazi Germany and the communist Soviet Union had been busy in a bizarre twist producing so many fighter planes and bombers.
It is apparent that Germany would challenge the USSR or the U.K. for any reason, otherwise it did not need so many air-fighters.
But why? Why must have Nazi Germany launched the war against the communist Soviet Union in 1941?
Before the start of the Second World War, the USA and the U.K. had been busy occupying so many foreign lands and territories fully relying on its naval forces. The only power that could challenge this Anglo-Saxon colonialism in the global scale was the Empire of Japan. But, it looks like a potentially losing game if the Empire of Japan alone had exercised its naval force against the Anglo-Saxon coalition, though it actually did with undependable ally of Germany and Italy so far from the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean.
Yet, you must be surprised to know that the military spending of the Empire of Japan between 1930 and 1938 surpassed that of the U.S.
It is because the Empire of Japan had been involved in Chinese civil wars since the late 19th century and especially since 1937.
For the Empire of Japan, it was not a simple war of invasion for exploitation and plunder of the Asian Continent in competition with the Soviet Union coming down from Siberia; it was a kind of process of building the Greater Empire of Japan in East Asia, aiming at prosperity and harmony of all the peoples in the region with Japan at its center as the sole military, technological, economic, and cultural leader of Asia against the European-Russian/American powers.
Of course, here again, it is confirmed that Nazi Germany and the communist Soviet Union had been apparently on a collision course, for whatever reason.
Before June 1941, if leaders of the Empire of Japan had fairly studied these data, I believe they would have been more smartly engaged in the diplomatic operations in Washington D.C., London, Berlin, and Moscow.
But, nonetheless, it is very, very sad that the above statistics do provide any hint neither on how many casualties must have been suffered if a great war had started, nor on how many European Judaists had been being oppressed, prosecuted, and executed.
*** *** ***
What I want to say is that there must be some yet-unpublicized critical and substantial data and statistics we have to study on financial handling and transactions having been conducted on Wall Street before and even after Sept. 15, 2008.
Anyway, Dear, I do not like especially to draw figures using Exel software, though you may count on me in this context.
(Though you may not like some German heroines…
Joh 2:1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
Joh 2:2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
Joh 2:3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
Joh 2:4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
Joh 2:5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.

"Son, Thy Sins..."
According to the U.S. Semiconductor Industry Association, the global semiconductor market reached $256 billion due to a 3% growth year-on-year in terms of sales.
Accordingly, the global semiconductor material market grew by 14% to $42 billion. The breakdown of the global market into each region is as follows:
( http://www.semi.org/en/P043648 )
Everybody is using electronic goods nowadays all over the world, including cellular phones, personal computers, and TVs.
Electronic goods are equipped with various electronic components or chips made of semiconductor devices, in order to form electronic circuits which function and work following instructions from a user or a consumer.
Semiconductor devices are made of special materials called semiconductor materials.
Semiconductor materials are insulators at absolute zero temperature that conduct electricity in a limited way at room temperature. The defining property of a semiconductor material is that it can be doped with impurities that alter its electronic properties in a controllable way.
Because of their application in devices like transistors (and therefore computers) and lasers, the search for new semiconductor materials and the improvement of existing materials is an important field of study in materials science.
Therefore, primarily, modern life of today worldwide is supported by semiconductor materials.
And, as you can confirm in the above figure, Japan is still No. 1 in this field.
** ** **
Pick up any proud man from Wall Street and ask him to draft the design of electronic circuits for any electronic goods.
He may be able to do it based on his knowledge of electronic engineering.
Ask him to draft the design for any electronic component or chip used in the electronic circuits.
He may be able to do it based on his knowledge of semiconductor science.
Ask him to draft the design for any semiconductor material to be developed for any semiconductor chip.
Probably, he cannot do it, since it can be only achieved through application of condensed matter physics which need non-nonsense efforts and investments.
So, no proud men on Wall Street can design any of electronic goods or gears, while they are behaving like masters of those specialists, researchers, engineers, technicians, factory workers, and science students.
If only they admit that they are fools compared with those workers and students in this field, they might come to like to serve them who are also consumers and users or clients for Wall Street.
Otherwise, you have to use computer software of which hidden structure and functions you never know, while you have to use computer hardware of which hidden structure and functions you never know, in the worst case.
Yes, the last place a computer virus can penetrate and work on might be the semiconductor material in the nano scale…
So, trust in Japan.
Indeed, even in a Sony's plant around Tokyo, skilled workers are allowed to enjoy a status like the Noble Prize winner wearing a factory uniform Mr. Koichi Tanaka in Kyoto as I mentioned yesterday.
(Oh, dear, they will take it as a joke, since somebody completely looks like a fool even to himself so successfully. Have you checked the World/Japan No.1s collection page?
Mar 2:3 And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.
Mar 2:4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.
Mar 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

"Wise Men from the East"
A month ago, namely on January 1, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun newspaper issued the New Year’s Day edition with some attachments.
As I was busy all through January, some of them have been left unchecked. This morning, I happened to take up one of them to find Japan as the number one or some statistics on robots in use worldwide.
(See also data in http://www.jara.jp/data/dl/kado.pdf , or http://www.jara.jp/e/index.html )
In reality, Japan is No.1 in the world in terms of manufacturing potential supported by real machine.
The world should order any necessary machine from Japan.
The world should order any sophisticated machine from Japan.
The world should place an order with Japan for any useful machine.
The world should order any high-tech machine from Japan so as to boost their industry and economy.
It is so when paper money and instruments have failed the world on Wall Street, the world must turn to the real industry which requires real machine being produced in Japan.
* * *
Apart from Japanese nationalistic remarks The New York Times the most loathes, I want to introduce very straightforward remarks Mr. Koichi Tanaka, a Japanese Nobel Prize winner in 2002, stated in the New Year Day’s supplement of the newspaper.
Mr. Tanaka said that it is a big mistake that Japan denies the conventional way of academic, scientific, engineering, and industrial development based on teamwork. Truly as in the Wall-Street type of business, some Japanese have claimed in these years that we have to change our conventional wisdom in much respect for teamwork to promotion of individualism and leadership of a few charismatic leaders.
Mr. Koichi Tanaka, a Nobel Prize winner for physics who usually wears a work outfit, believes that Japan can integrate diverse and useful elements, being cultivated in various parts of the world, into a new form of innovation, while preserving a faith in human value to be attained through professional and traditional ethics.
The rules having been effective on Wall Street until September 2008 cannot simply apply to future advanced industrial nations, so crystal-clearly.
Mat 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
Mat 2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
