China is embracing megaprojects at an unprecedented rate and will – over the course of a few decades – complete a phase of infrastructure that will rival what the United States has built in its entire history.

In countries where most people commute on scooters or motorcycles, traffic laws seem to be more of a suggestion than a rule. This scooter rider takes on a crazy first person ride that he calls “not that scary” and I almost had a heart attack.

This video illustrates perfectly that you don’t need a fast bike to get around quickly. This little Honda scooter might not pack a big punch, but the rider makes up for it with a superhuman like situational awareness and balls of steel.

What looks to us like an action star trying to escape some bad guys is probably just an everyday commute.

Traditional Japanese carpentry, whether used to build a dinner table or the entire house containing it, doesn’t use screws, nails, adhesives, or any other kind of non-wooden fastener. So how do its constructions hold together? How have all those thousands of wooden houses, tables, and countless other objects and structures stood up for dozens and even hundreds of years, and so solidly at that? The secret lies in the art of joinery and its elaborate cutting techniques refined, since its origin in the seventh century, through generations and generations of steadily increasing mastery — albeit by a steadily dwindling number of masters.

“Even until recent times when carpentry books began to be published, mastery of these woodworking techniques remained the fiercely guarded secret of family carpentry guilds,” writes Spoon & Tamago’s Johnny Strategy. If you find it difficult to grasp how simply cutting two pieces of wood in a certain way could unite them as if they’d grown together in the first place, have a look at a Twitter feed called The Joinery, run by a young enthusiast who has collected a great many of these carpentry books. He’s used them, in combination with mechanical design software skills presumably honed in his career in the auto industry, to create elegantly animated visual explanations of Japanese carpentry’s tried-and-true joinery methods.

Archdaily points to the work of architect Shigeru Ban as one example of how this “uniquely Japanese wood aesthetic” has survived into the modern day, but the man behind The Joinery imagines even more ambitious possibilities: “3D printing and woodworking machinery has enabled us to create complicated forms fairly easily,” he tells Spoon & Tamago. “I want to organize all the joinery techniques and create a catalog of them all,” so that anyone with the tools might potentially make use of their beauty and sturdiness in hitherto unimagined new contexts. And so another traditional Japanese craft that has looked doomed to outmoded oblivion, what with all the more advanced and efficient fabrication and construction techniques developed over the past 1400 years, may well thrive in the future. To learn more about the art of joinery, you’ll want to explore this 1995 book, The Complete Japanese Joinery.

How similar-sounding words in ambiguous languages may lead to taboos.

comingwar-quad-approved4

When I first went to Hiroshima in 1967, the shadow on the steps was still there. It was an almost perfect impression of a human being at ease: legs splayed, back bent, one hand by her side as she sat waiting for a bank to open. At a quarter past eight on the morning of 6 August, 1945, she and her silhouette were burned into the granite. I stared at the shadow for an hour or more, unforgettably. When I returned many years later, it was gone: taken away, “disappeared”, a political embarrassment.

I have spent two years making a documentary film, The Coming War on China, in which the evidence and witnesses warn that nuclear war is no longer a shadow, but a contingency.  The greatest build-up of American-led military forces since the Second World War is well under way. They are in the northern hemisphere, on the western borders of Russia, and in Asia and the Pacific, confronting China.

The great danger this beckons is not news, or it is buried and distorted: a drumbeat of mainstream fake news that echoes the psychopathic fear embedded in public consciousness during much of the 20thcentury.

Like the renewal of post-Soviet Russia, the rise of China as an economic power is declared an “existential threat” to the divine right of the United States to rule and dominate human affairs.

To counter this, in 2011 President Obama announced a “pivot to Asia”, which meant that almost two-thirds of US naval forces would be transferred to Asia and the Pacific by 2020. Today, more than 400 American military bases encircle China with missiles, bombers, warships and, above all, nuclear weapons. From Australia north through the Pacific to Japan, Korea and across Eurasia to Afghanistan and India, the bases form, says one US strategist, “the perfect noose”.

A study by the RAND Corporation – which, since Vietnam, has planned America’s wars – is entitled, War with China: Thinking Through the Unthinkable.  Commissioned by the US Army, the authors evoke the cold war when RAND made notorious the catch cry of its chief strategist, Herman Kahn — “thinking the unthinkable”. Kahn’s book, On Thermonuclear War, elaborated a plan for a “winnable” nuclear war against the Soviet Union.

Today, his apocalyptic view is shared by those holding real power in the United States: the militarists and neo-conservatives in the executive, the Pentagon, the intelligence and “national security” establishment and Congress.

The current Secretary of Defense, Ashley Carter, a verbose provocateur, says US policy is to confront those “who see America’s dominance and want to take that away from us”.

For all the attempts to detect a departure in foreign policy, this is almost certainly the view of Donald Trump, whose abuse of China during the election campaign included that of “rapist” of the American economy. On 2 December, in a direct provocation of China, President-elect Trump spoke to the President of Taiwan, which China considers a renegade province of the mainland. Armed with American missiles, Taiwan is an enduring flashpoint between Washington and Beijing.

“The United States,” wrote Amitai Etzioni, professor of international Affairs at George Washington University, “is preparing for a war with China, a momentous decision that so far has failed to receive a thorough review from elected officials, namely the White House and Congress.”  This war would begin with a “blinding attack against Chinese anti-access facilities, including land and sea-based missile launchers … satellite and anti-satellite weapons”.

The incalculable risk is that “deep inland strikes could be mistakenly perceived by the Chinese as pre-emptive attempts to take out its nuclear weapons, thus cornering them into ‘a terrible use-it-or-lose-it dilemma’ [that would] lead to nuclear war.”

In 2015, the Pentagon released its Law of War Manual. “The United States,” it says, “has not accepted a treaty rule that prohibits the use of nuclear weapons per se, and thus nuclear weapons are lawful weapons for the United States.”

In China, a strategist told me, “We are not your enemy, but if you [in the West] decide we are, we must prepare without delay.”  China’s military and arsenal are small compared to America’s. However, “for the first time,” wrote Gregory Kulacki of the Union of Concerned Scientists, “China is discussing putting its nuclear missiles on high alert so that they can be launched quickly on warning of an attack … This would be a significant and dangerous change in Chinese policy … Indeed, the nuclear weapon policies of the United States are the most prominent external factor influencing Chinese advocates for raising the alert level of China’s nuclear forces.”…

Undercover investigation by China Labor Watch exposes low wages, hazardous chemicals and overtime beyond legal limits

Xiao Fang thinks she’s one of the luckier workers making Barbie dolls for the Christmas market at the Mattel toy factory in Chang’an.

True, she says, she works 11-hour days, six days a week, and shares a dormitory with nine other women and gets to see her husband only once a week. She had to leave her three-year-old daughter back home in Sichuan. And there is only a communal bathroom, and if they want hot water they must fetch it from another floor. But at least she has a job, she says. And others have it worse.

Xiao is one of thousands of workers in Chinese factories making some of this year’s must-have Christmas toys.

An investigation with the US-based NGO China Labor Watch reveals that toys including Barbie, Thomas the Tank Engine and Hot Wheels were made by staff earning as little as 86p an hour.

Overtime can run to nearly three times the legal limit. In some factories – including one producing Happy Meal toys for McDonald’s from the new DreamWorks movie Trolls – that means some are on 12-hour shifts and have to work with hazardous chemicals.

According to China Labor Watch, the world of toys may be heaven for children, but it is a world of misery for toy factory workers.

The group’s founder and executive director, Li Qiang, said: “We can’t tolerate that children’s dreams are based on workers’ nightmares, and we must fight against the unfair oppression of workers who manufacture toys.”

Undercover investigators infiltrated four factories, and the group shared wage slips and pictures with the Observer to support their findings.

The investigators said that they found workers making toys in factories supplying Disney, Mattel, Fisher-Price and McDonald’s who reported having to do more than 100 hours of overtime a month – nearly three times the legal limit in China.

But the toy industry’s own watchdog, the ICTI Care Foundation, says it is powerless to stop many Chinese factories breaking the law on overtime.

“The reality is, across the board, most factories, or the vast majority at least, work way beyond legal limits in China, and legal limits are almost universally ignored,” said Mark Robertson, ICTI Care’s director of communications. “Our position is, we want transparency. We want to know how many hours are worked in the factories, so we can make sure workers are paid for every minute that they work.”

Some of this year’s must-have brands were made in the factories visited by the undercover team. At the Foshan Nanhai Diecast Company factory the basic salary for workers was just 86p an hour. Toys photographed inside the factory included Thomas the Tank Engine Minis and Hot Wheels Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as the Cars Piston Cup racing garage and the Fisher-Price Learn with Me Zebra Walker. Fisher-Price is owned by Mattel.

Working all available overtime and with all allowances and deductions applied, a worker takes home far less than the average wage in Chinese cities of £715 a month.

An undercover investigator who joined the company as a worker described having to work with isoamyl acetate – commonly know as banana oil – which can soften and dissolve plastics. The investigator worked on a production line and came into direct contact with the substance, reporting that some workers had complained to management about the strong odour…

queer-japan-documentary-1

by Juan Matus, Guest, Waking Times

The destruction of Japan and extinction of its population is the desired consequence, or by-product, of the fact that Japan serves as the laboratory for the ruling social engineers. The country is used as the primary testing ground for nuclear and biochemical warfare technology, social engineering, climate engineering and more, for a very long time. As a result of the relentless socially engineered attacks on this society we can clearly see the demographic and social results of it. Anyone who thinks this is just the result of a normal evolution process is clearly totally out of his/her mind. The social engineers use the Japanese model as a blueprint for the rest of the world and we can see the exact same tendencies evolving in the West.

Depopulation in Overdrive

Depopulation and gender war is in Japan blatantly in your face: A January 2012 estimate by The National Institute of Population and Social Security Research showed that in 2060, Japan’s population will number about 80 million, about 35 percent less from the 2010 level. The result of the coming health crisis due to the ongoing geo engineering/Fukushima/food poisoning assaults, EMF’s etc, which will spike this trend, is not included in this estimation.

Almost half of the population in Japan is ‘not interested anymore in any form of sexual contact’. Like in the West, this is partly the result of the destroyed sex drive in both genders due to the extremely low testosterone levels. 
GMO food, EMF exposure and other chemical exposures are the main cause of this alarming decline
Millions aren’t even dating, and increasing numbers can’t be bothered with sex at all. For their government, “celibacy syndrome” is part of a looming national catastrophe. Again this is absolutely abnormal, and is the result of the relentless social engineering/Mind Control programs. The problem is that the left brain imprisoned scientism priests do not include Social engineering/Mind Control or any other “conspiracy” argument as being the real source of  the insane manifestations in the Japanese society. Let alone that the depopulation agenda’s and/or the gender war are included in the diagnose. That is because they themselves are in a deep brainwashed state. They probably need more research on the “celibacy syndrome”.

Further Robotizing

Japan’s under-40s has rapidly lost interest in conventional relationships and any form of intimacy. Japan already has one of the world’s lowest birth rates. Its population of 126 million, which has been shrinking the past decades, is projected to dramatic plunge a further one-third by 2060. A clear indication of depopulation at work as this has nothing to do with natural demographic fluctuations. Japan, is experiencing an engineered flight from human intimacy” – which is a clear goal of the psychopathic dark social engineers. Besides depopulation advantages for the social engineers, the result of these assaults is that humanity is further weakened. Most people, while being in their fragmented self obsessed reality, take this disorder on themselves and see themselves as the problem (which they are in a certain way). One begins to see themselves as a failure, and due to the lack of any knowledge what we are exposed to today, their lives are being destroyed. Aoyama, a japanese therapist, says her first task with most of her clients is encouraging them “to stop apologizing for their own physical existence”. This Mind Controlled pathological state is also visible in the rest of the world.

the-a-z-of-kawaii-body-image-1462805762

The number of single people has reached a record high. A survey in 2011 found that over 60% of unmarried men and 50% of women aged 18-34 were not in any kind of romantic relationship, a rise of almost 10% from five years earlier. Another study found that a third of people under 30 (!) had never dated at all. (These figures are probably much higher for the same sex categories) Although there has long been a pragmatic separation of love and sex in Japan – a country mostly free of religious morals – sex fares no better. Again, and let these shocking figures sink in: almost half of the population is not interested in or despised sexual contact”.

sex-counsellor-ai-aoyama-008

Learning to love: sex counsellor Ai Aoyama, with one of her clients and her dog Marilyn.

Many people who seek her out, says Aoyama, are deeply confused(mind controlled). “Some want a partner, some prefer being single, but few relate to normal love and marriage.” However, the engineered pressure to conform to Japan’s anachronistic family model of salaryman husband and stay-at-home wife remains. “People don’t know where to turn. They’re coming to me because they think that, there’s something wrong with them.”

Due to any lack of knowledge of social engineering, official alarmism doesn’t help at all. Fewer babies were born here in 2012 than any year on record. Kunio Kitamura, head of the JFPA, claims the demographic crisis is so serious that Japan “might eventually perish into extinction”. The dream of the socially engineering ruling “elite”.

Japan’s under-40s won’t go forth and multiply out of duty, as postwar generations did. It is battling a lost battle against the effects of the relentless ongoing attacks of the social/geo engineers. They suffer from the nuclear-destruction-scarred psyche of 2011’s earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima radioactive meltdown trauma’s. There is no going back. “Both men and women say to me they don’t see the point of love. They don’t believe it can lead anywhere,” says Aoyama. “Relationships have become too hard.” This mindset is the exact goal of the dark occult social engineers who strive to a robotic society that is based on the opposite of Love, which is fear. A trauma based Mind controlled population governed by a sick satanic One World government. The last phase is unfolding as we speak and in plain sight for those who want to see it…

Fukushima’s Nuclear Plant reactor No. 1 has been fully exposed for the first time since the March 2011 tragedy, after the utility company safely removed the last cover sheet of the temporary protective construction.

© Toru Hanai

Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) used an industrial crane to lift the last of its 18 protective panels Thursday. Each of the panels weighs around 20 tons and measure 23 by 17 meters.

The protective cover was erected in October 2011 as a temporary measure to halt a radiation leak following a meltdown caused by a powerful earthquake and tsunami in March 2011. The dismantling of the panels started in July 2015 and was concluded on Thursday.

At Unit 1, rubble from the damaged building caused by the hydrogen explosion remains scattered and needs to be removed. The entire site is highly contaminated and will now be covered with tarpaulins to avoid the spread of radioactive waste. TEPCO is using anti-scattering agents to keep the dust down. Small pieces of rubble that can create dust are being vacuumed up while mist sprinklers are being used inside the building to keep radiation under control.

TEPCO next plans to remove 392 fuel assemblies from the spent pool and clean out the melted nuclear fuel from inside the building, NHK news reported. The utility company is assessing the level of radiation before continuing the cleanup process.

Scientists are also installing the necessary equipment to complete fuel extraction which will only start in four years. Fuel removal from Unit 1’s depleted fuel pool is scheduled to begin around March 2021, according to TEPCO’s Mid- and Long-Term Roadmap that was revised in June 2015.

In March 2011, a tsunami destroyed emergency generators at the plant. They had been cooling the reactors. The tsunami led to three nuclear meltdowns and the release of radioactive material. In Reactor 1, overheating caused the creation of hydrogen gas. On March 12, an explosion in Unit 1 destroyed the upper part of the building.

TEPCO’s decommission plan for the Fukushima nuclear power plant implies at least a 30-40 year period before the consequences of the meltdown are fully eliminated. So far the clean-up efforts have already cost Japan in excess of $21 billion. According to the latest estimates from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, the decommissioning costs will top $105 billion.

Human Sacrifice Stalks India

Source: newobserveronline.com

A new sacrificial murder involving a four-year-old girl who was beheaded and offered as human sacrifice has highlighted the fact that witchcraft in India claims hundreds of lives every year.

The latest case—which took place in the world-famous tea-producing region of Assam—involved a “tantrik” sacrificing the girl after being asked to provide magical help in finding a lost cell phone.

According to the Indian Express newspaper, the girl’s body was recovered from a forest near her home in Ratanpur tea estate in the Charaideo district of upper Assam. Her severed head and arms were found nearby.

The girl had been “tortured to retrieve the lost cell phone” of a local villager, named as Hanuman Bhumij. The lost cell phone belonged to Bhumij’s 14-year-old daughter.

Bhumij and another suspect Ariful Ali, identified as the ‘tantrik’ assistant, have been arrested, but the main accused, two men named as Abdul Jalil and Gabbar Singh, are still in hiding.

The New Indian Express newspaper revealed that the sacrifice had taken place to “appease [a local] god in order that one of them could find the mobile phone his daughter had lost.”
