This is crucial. I toned down my critique of Japanese sandwiches after reading the Anthony Bourdain notices, which made me worry I was missing something.

My 11yr old says Hunger Games, Twilight, Geek Girl & Being Miss Nobody. But I can’t get her off YouTube.

Since there's no news today, we've published a special report on the Kansai region. Forget the two fat men in Singapore and read about Japanese comedy, the world's most profitable manufacturer & the wonders of sweet curry.

Solid comments by all interviewed authorities. I strongly recommend reading this discussion prior to the upcoming Singapore summit.

Imagine if you bought house insurance on some else's house, then bribed that person to burn it down. That's basically what's been going on in the credit default swap market. Incredible story

I was dubious about the widely cited 99.9 per cent figure for Japan's criminal conviction rate so we checked. It's actually 99.97 per cent.

In 1992, the world adopted the Kyoto Protocol to fight . The same year, the IPCC released a set of projections for future CO2. The most widely used, IS92a, depicted global growth under business-as-usual. Today, CO2 is only ~5 ppm below what IS92a predicted.

Here are the demands that US sent to China ahead of their trade talks (reported by WSJ and Bloomberg; this version leaked on Weibo, now deleted--person involved in talks says it's authentic). Very aggressive opening position from the US.
