Heike lost the war against Genji, however, Heike left Buddhist temples, Hiragana, Waka that later became Haiku, the kimono and Lady Murasaki. "The Tale of Heike" is still the best seller today, it is a sad story. Our Emperor also has Heike DNA.

参議院選挙の公示後、初の週末、イギリスのEU(ヨーロッパ連合)離脱を受けて、政権の安定を訴えた。公明・山口代表は、「EU離脱の影響が、最小限になるように、これから知恵を出して、努力していかなければならない」、「知恵と経験を寄せ合って、乗り越えてきた自公の安定政権でなければ、この難局を乗り越えることはできない」などと述べた。公明党の山口代表は25日、神奈川・横浜市で街頭演説を行い、安定した自公政権のもとで、「経済再生、デフレ脱却の道を進め、着実に結果が出てきた」と、アベノミクスの成果を強調した。そして、「見え始めた希望を、地方へ、中小企業へ、そして家庭や個人へ、さらにアベノミクスの効果が及んでいない人々に広げていくことが目標だ」と訴えた。


英・EU離脱決定 安倍首相「冷静に国際社会とともに対応」
06/26 09:43

参議院選挙の公示後初の週末、イギリスのEU(ヨーロッパ連合)離脱への対応を強調した。安倍首相は「英国民は、EU離脱を決断した。大切なのは、国際協調。伊勢志摩サミットにおいても、日本は議長国として、英国の離脱がリスクの一つであることも(議長声明に)明記してきた。われわれは冷静に、しっかりと、国際社会とともに対応していく考えであります」と述べた。安倍首相は25日、宮城・仙台市で街頭演説を行い、サミットでの合意を成果として強調したうえで、「世界から今、日本が求められているのは、政治の安定だ」と主張した。そして、アベノミクスは失敗していないが、道半ばだとして、「エンジンを最大限にふかしていく」と訴えた。


安倍晋三は辞任せよ!

伊勢は「安倍の経済政策は根本的に間違っている」と安倍がアベノミクスを声高らかに宣伝し始めたときから警告してきた。つまり、安倍自身が地球の経済を読む力がないのである。伊勢は自民党が与党であることを望む。しかし安倍晋三はダメだ。伊勢平次郎

"Red Flying Dragon" was the nickname for the Japanese Naval Flying Academy. It is also the name of the airplanes used in training.

Seven buttons and an anchor was the insignia. My third brother Mitsuo was 16 years old when he signed up for the Japanese Navy flight preparatory course "Trainee." He survived the war and passed away at 88 years old - January of 2016.. I am proud of him for his courage and love of his country, he was willing to die for her.

Ten years ago he came to see me at Tsukiji Hotel in Tokyo. The man on the left is my brother. We had an Italian dinner with two bottles of red wine. Four people at the next table were astonished when they heard that my brother was a Kamikaze candidate. He had a quiet and gentle nature. He loved flying even at age of 78. He was also passionate about playing the organ. I miss him so much. In tribute and in memory of Mitsuo I will express our view of the Pacific War. Iseheijiro

2016/06/15 (Wed) Shinzo Abe is not a patriot at all
ABE YASUKUNI

August 15th is coming. I wonder Shinzo Abe pays respect for the 2.5 million Japanese soldiers who died for their country. MacArthur said Truman that Tokyo Trial was mistake. MacArthur said that Japan fought for her defense at US Congressional testimony. Japan didn't start war against China nor against Russia nor against America. FDR was not as Teddy Roosevelt who mediated Russo/Japanese War. FDR was a crook who started WWII.




These were "Gunshin" that means soldier god who died for their country.


Shinzo Abe is a coward

2016/06/10 (Fri) The boom and the bust
shale oil fraking TX

My stock advisor ZACKS wrote to me..

Hi nobuyoshi,

Oil price declines have resulted in fatal blows as industry bankruptcies now rival those from the Tech bubble burst at the latest turn of the century. Approximately 60 U.S. oil companies have filed for bankruptcy—just a few less, at this point, than the 68 filings made during the tech crash. Fifteen bankruptcy filings occurred in the first quarter of 2016 alone including Houston’s Ultra Petroleum Corp. and Oklahoma-based Midstates Petroleum Co. Despite rising oil prices, more producers are expected go broke this year as well.

Recent Oil Bust Similar to Tech in 2001?

Innovative technology played a key role in the boom and the bust (ironically) of both oil the dot coms/tech. While the U.S. oil industry prospered on the back of the shale revolution, the tech boom was aided by pioneering communication technology, such as high-end optical fiber (coupled with industry deregulation in 1996).

For both sectors, the rapid onset of innovative technology created strong prospects for future growth and encouraged a rush of new entrants into the space (along with plenty of investors who largely overvalued the growth potential). The end result was the same:

Overvalued companies
Too much debt
Capacity glut
Successive price declines for each of the two sectors

The valuation plunge in the oil sector closely resembles that of the 2000 tech bubble. According to Dow Jones Oil and Gas Index, valuation losses amounted to $1.02 trillion against a 60% drop in crude prices since mid-2014, widely exceeding the $882.5 billion of valuation erosion from the Dow Jones U.S. Telecommunications Sector Index in the aftermath of the telecom bust.

Energy Impact Similar to That of Technology Bust?

Although certain aspects of the oil rout might evoke déjà-vu of the 2000s tech bust, it would be overstating the case to equate their impact. The effects of innovation in the tech space were not limited to that industry alone as the revolution in communications via the internet and wireless phone services emerged as the lifeblood of the 21st century global economy. So, bankruptcies in that space were bound to create acute issues across the economy.

On the crude oil side, the effects of price declines are more diverse across a variety of sectors. Bankruptcies from crude price declines are more likely for companies that exclusively deal in exploration/production. Bigger, integrated players have offset negative earnings from upstream operations with tailwinds provided by lower crude cost for downstream activities. Additionally, the energy sector’s overall market presence is not necessarily threatening for the economy as a whole. While oil and gas extraction’s labor force comprises just about 0.1% of total nonfarm employment and its value added accounting 1.7% of 2014 GDP, most big American banks’ exposure to the sector do not exceed much over 3% of their loan portfolios.

Furthermore, the price declines have already stimulated larger slices of the economy through fuel cost savings for consumers and resource-intensive industries (a positive sign for the overall economy over the longer term). Also, a substantial part of U.S. oil consumption comes from foreign countries, so U.S. oil bankruptcies by themselves are not sufficient enough to deprive the nation of fuel and cause an energy crisis.

Lastly, most oil corporations, under Chapter 11, would continue operations—something that should assuage fears of future production shortages.

Bottom Line for Investors

Although cratering crude prices have dealt a massive blow to the energy sector, it is not likely to create catastrophic impact across the economy, as a telecom/technology bust could and did. The well managed players in energy have already largely restructured their businesses for lower crude prices, and the smaller players that have gone by the wayside probably won’t create any kind of ripple into the broader stock market.

2016/06/09 (Thu) Japan/US vs. China/Russia?
putin Xi allies

(CNN)Tokyo has protested to Beijing after a Chinese frigate entered waters near a disputed island chain in the East China Sea, according to a Japanese Defense Ministry spokesman.

A Japanese Navy destroyer detected the Chinese ship as it entered the contiguous zone -- an area stretching 24 nautical miles out from the edge of territorial waters -- around the Senkaku, also known as Diaoyu, islands, at 12.50 a.m. local time Thursday (12.50 p.m. ET Wednesday), Yoshitomo Morii told CNN. This was the first time a Chinese frigate has entered the contiguous zone, he added.

"We're deeply concerned that Chinese naval ships entered the waters contiguous to our Senkaku islands for the first time," Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters Thursday.

"We, in coordination with the United States and the international community, strongly demand China not repeat such behaviors that unilaterally heighten tensions."

According to Japanese officials, Foreign Minister Vice Minister Akitaka Saeki summoned China's ambassador, Chen Yonghua, to lodge a protest "with serious concern," and demand that the Chinese military ship leave the area immediately.

Morii said the Chinese ship left the area at 3:05 a.m., after repeated calls for it to do so by the Japanese vessel.

Russian military ships were also detected in the contiguous zone between 9:50 p.m. Wednesday and 3:05 a.m. Thursday local time, but further details were not immediately available, Morii said.

According to Japanese state broadcaster NHK, citing senior Japanese officials, the Chinese ship may have been reacting to the Russian vessel's movement.

Long-running tensions

Both China and Japan claim ownership of the Senkaku chain, and tensions have flared numerous times in recent years.
In late 2013, China declared an air defense identification zone (ADIZ) over much of the East China Sea, including the Senkakus, despite objections from Tokyo and Washington.

Japan also has an ADIZ over the islands, which it administers. While the Senkakus are uninhabited, their ownership would allow for exclusive oil, mineral and fishing rights in the surrounding waters.

Chinese online game lets players fight Japan over disputed islands

In mid-2014, Japanese and Chinese jets had a tense standoff in a region where both zones overlap, with Japan's Defense Minister saying the planes at one point came within 30 feet of each other.

Tension over the island dispute has in the past spilled over into protests and violence against Japanese-owned businesses in China.

U.S.-Philippines enhance military alliance, China isn't happy

The Senkakus are by no means the only islands whose ownership China disputes. Beijing claims the majority of the South China Sea as part of its territory, which has led to heightened tensions and frequent disputes with its neighbors there.


My opinion

I don't think they really want a war with Japanese/US joint forces. I think this blatant actions are testing Japan/US allied forces. Putin and Xi are heading for isolation. Both countries are under pressure from the west on their economy too. They are seeking an exit and cannot find it. I personally prefer that China and russia to be contained for a long period time until they realize they can not win. If Hillary Clinton becomes the US President she will be tested for her fortitude.

Heike lost the war against Genji, however, Heike left Buddhist temples, Hiragana, Waka that became Haiku later, kimono and Lady Murasaki. "The Tale of Heike" is still the best seller today, it is a sad story. Our Emperor also has Heike DNA.

Please ask me any question in the comment column. Good luck to you all at the ISESHIMA SUMMIT.

U.S. Hiring Slowed Dramatically in May; Jobless Rate Falls to 4.7%

U.S. companies slowed their hiring drastically in May and unemployment fell as people dropped out of the labor force, a bleak picture for Federal Reserve officials as they prepare to debate increasing short-term interest rates at a policy meeting this month.

Nonfarm payrolls rose by a seasonally adjusted 38,000 in May, the weakest performance since September 2010, the Labor Department said Friday. Revisions showed employers added a combined 59,000 fewer jobs in April and March than previously estimated.


Well I don't worry too much



US is still on her recovery from 2009 Lehman brothers collapse. It has been steadily gaining momentum on GDP and employment. I trust Janette Yerren's handling of FRB policy. There is no need to rush to raise interest. One thing I know is that US is not going back to spending, borrowing, creates housing babble and debt. We can live high quality life with a little modesty.

2016/06/01 (Wed) Shinzo Abe is an amateur economist
abe fake

(Bloomberg) Abe needs to regain the narrative. If his Liberal Democratic Party does well as expected in July’s upper-house elections, he should revive serious efforts at privatization and deregulating labor and product markets. He should look again at ways to increase desperately needed immigration and to put more pressure on companies to raise wages.This is a familiar refrain. Unlike with the sales tax, though, further delay is unwise.

Abe is an amateur economist

Except giants like TOYOTA Japanese public is losing confidence in Abe's economic plan.He is slow so to speak. He is not aggressive when Japan needs confidence. He will be remembered as a weak, talkative and never deliver what he says..Iseheijiro
